GOES HOME III TWO WEEKS Labor Conditions as Ascertained fcy 'The Pofit Sharing System Benlng Extended. Him D. A. Ray, who is here on a special mission to investigate the labor condi tions of the Islands, returned yesterday morning from a visit to Hawaii and Maui. During his trip he visited a number of the plantations and- comes back well satisfied with what he saw. "I remained on Hawaii only two days this time," said Mr. Ray last night. "I was the, guest of Manager Scott of the 'Hilo Sugar Co. and also gathered some data regarding other plantations. Mr. Scott has had no trouble with labor and the plantation is doing well. He has introduced a sort of profit-sharing system among the Japanese and it has met with suc cess. The same plan has been used by Manager Lowrie of Spreckelsville. The laborers seem to work better when they feel that to a great extent they are working for themselves. xiie men cue st.iU5 w in general are perfectly contented. In iii0tana a. luua, iuaCo mosity or a gang ana tney do not rest until he is either discharged or trans- ferred. In most cases these causes for dislike are trivial, the cruelty such as has been detailed by agitators in the San Francisco Examiner beine: " un- ; i known. j j "Spreckelsville is a wonderful place. ' They are making improvements there now, the cost of which will aggregate in the millions. For a new pumping- ! plant which is shortly to be installed they have made excavations sixty feet deep and one hundred feet square. That's a good-sized hole. But the won- derful thing about it was that after the first twenty feet was thrown out, the .'remainder had to be blasted out of al- most solid rock. When they complete all their irrigating arrangements it seems that there will be no limit to the capacity. I rode all over the plantation and was never more impressed with anything in my life. The adjoining plantations, Wailuku, Haiku and Paia, are all prosperous. Ki hei is a mass of dust owing to the plowing, which is now going on there They are making rapid progress on this plantation, Manager Pogue being a rustler. . "A small party of us made the ascent of Haleakala. We reached the crest in time to see the sunrise, and before the giant crater was enveloped in clouds. The spectacle is one of unequalled mag nificence and grandeur, whose won ders words cannot describe." . Mr. Ray will remain here about two weeks longer. He has been on every one of the Islands and has acquired a vast amount of general information. "Yes," he said, in answer to a ques tion, "I shall report to Senator Cullom after my arrival in Washington. Of course I shall not make any recommen dations, but if they desire my opinion it will be given." New Olaa Reservation. E. D. Baldwin returned from Hono lulu by the 2ast Kinau. He states that the department of public lands has re ceived no notification from Washing- to sta' the sale of the olaa lands advertised for September 2; nor do they expect an v. If nothing unforeseen ,1 .:,, in o vertised, and purchasers will be put in possession of the lands. It is ex pected that the squatters will get off of their own accord, but if they do not the Attorney General will take the matter into his hands and they will be ejected snmmarily.Hilo Tribune. Broke the Record A certain well-known official, the terror of wrong-doers, claims the boat ing record from town to Waikiki. With a small party he started out at 9 a. m. on a race against time. Many hours passed. The record-breaker was final ly sighted off Wright's Villa at 3 p. m. To show that the wonderful run had not used him up, he upset the boat, giving himself and his party a prema ture bath. He rode home in the street car, preferring a ride behind antiquated mules to another record run home. From Ed Towse. Commissioner Ed. Towse writes that he has been visiting old friends in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and having a very good time, although the weather .was cold. He expected to leave for Omaha about August 12, via Denver. At the Orpheiim. In spite of counter-attractions standing room at the Orpheum was at a premium on Saturday evening. To night there will be an entire change of program, in which all the old fav orites will appear. MANAGER M'STOCIIER Was Not the Man Who Raised Wages of Free Laborers. If a Japanese, having taken a con tract to clear land for the Olaa Sugar Company, finds himself short of labor ers and in order to secure a supply of fers much higher wages than has been paid in several years, should the man ager of the plantation be held respon sible? It was not Mr. McStocker who raised the price of free laborers on the plantation which he manages; he fo- lnwpfi thA rmirsp laid out bv other man- Lj?frs and has had absolutely nothing . , notices Dosted in camps offering $22.50 per month for Japanese jaborers Responsibility for that rests . vUh h lanantk9l wVlo v-t-i. mn- tracts to clear the land and who have given security for the faithful fulfilling of their part of the contract. In the line of clearing lands Manager Mc Stocker has done wrell. In one instance he has about entered into a contract for clearing timber lands at a price far below what is now being paid fori clearing lands of the same character on another and dividend-paying plan tation. Criticism in respect to expen sive clearing of lands in Olaa is rather unjust when it is considered the cor- !rect thing for otner managers to pay a higher price for the same work. Due attention was given by the Olaa Sugar Comnanv tn th matter f ihnr if 'must be remembered that no consider- able number of Japanese have arrived here since the plantation started. The j Herald would like to know if the 'stockholders in the Olaa Sugar Com- nany would have consented to nav the Waees of 500 laborers while the com- pany was in process of formation. Hawaii Herald. YACHTS GETTING READY. Bonnie Dundee Will Not Have a Walk-over This Time. A number of the yachts were out 'yes terday and the day before, getting things in readiness for the September regatta. The Abbie M. went down to Pearl Harbor on Saturday, taking an extra crew to brine the Marion back. In re- turn for this kindness the Marion, sailed by Messrs. Smith and Gere, beat the Abbie M. into port by an hour and a hajf ' Yachting men say the Bonnie Dun dee will no;longer have things her own way in these waters. While it is conceded she has the best of all the local yachts in a heavy sea, it seems to be the impression that she will not be in it in light or variable wrinds with the Gladys. This pretty little vessel with Messrs. Mott-Smith (2), Hobron and Lightfoot on board is said to have made the distance from Makapuu point in two hours. J. Magoon. Lawyer Magoon, who has been se riously ill since his return from the Mainland, was much better last night. He was taken with a recurrence of his old trouble soon after he reached Ho nolulu.

A JUDGE WANTED To Relieve Vast Increase or Wori in Circuit Courts. WHEELS OF JUSTICE ARE CLOGGED Work of the First District Is More Than Two Judges Can Dispose Of. fcay, why don't you call attention to the crvine: need of a third lnricr in this court?" said a prominent attorney to an Advertiser man in search of his usual court reports a day or two since. "What is the trouble?" "Here it is in a nutshell: This term of court is supposed to last just four weeks. It has been running two weeks and we have just got through with the Hawaiian jury cases. Even if Judge Stanley exercises the extra powers im . 4. A . . T ... , given him by the last Legislature and continues the term for two weeks more there only remains at the most a month, or twenty-four workine davs. in which the finish up the calendar, and, by the way, one of these is a holi day. "Let me show you how the calendar stands. There are twenty-six crimi nal cases for the foreign jury on the .printed list. Some of these have been cnsposea or, but others have been add ed. Some of those cases will take a couple of days to try. . In my opinion the court will have all it can do to tret through the criminal cases before the end of the term." . "What then?" was asked. "That's just it. Why, the civil cases will have to eo over to the next term. like" many of them did from the last,,and Sdfather Mrs. Albert Raas term to this. You talk about the law's delays and of course blame it on lawyers. My clients do the same. There, "enri aioei "asui OI ranee at wis are cases on the calendar in which I am capitaL M- Fortin is now acting Vice interested which I have been trying toj00118111 t France and there were pres get to trial for three terms, and here I )ent in the Cathedral a gathering of the am with very little prospect of getting representative French people in honor ! B il -r j a i tn trial nt ho nrocnnt torn, "Can't some of the cases be assigned to Judge Perry?" queried the reporter. No, they can't. Judge Perry hasthe PPPinS of corks the health of the got all he can do and more too. That Waialua case will take him a couple of months to try alone, if I know anything about it. It is an important case and so many people are interested in it and so much money Is tied un by it that it is of great public interest that the case should be decided as soon as possible) In addition to hearing the evidence, the Judge has got to read and digest all the testimony after the reporter has copied it out, before he can render his decision. Then again, he has to take all the probate business while Judge Stanley is attending to the regular term. And let me tell you that the probate business of this district alone is enough for one judge to attend to. "Now there are twenty-one mixed jury civil cases, twenty-four foreign jury cases and thirty jury waived icases' let alone divorce and separation suits' on the calendar of the present term- Can 'ou or any other man j imagine for a moment how one judge can attend to them all, I don't care how industrious he may be? And the busi ness of the court is constantly increas ing. At the November term things will be worse than they are now, and the business of the court will become so clogged that none of us will know where we are at. I am suffering pecu niary loss from the present delay and so are my clients, but I get blamed all the same because my clients don't realize the situation.
