What White Men Employefl on
Sewer Wort Have to Say.
SOLUTION OF LABOR PROBLEM
The Climate Is Cooler Than in Many Parts of
California and Tbey Are
The sewerage construction now go
ing on is interesting when the labor
side of it is taken into consideration.
When Mr. Vincent, of the engineering
firm which was awarded the construc
tion contract, arrived in Honolulu he
brought with him a number of" white
laborers. These men had been with
him in similar work at Fresno and
other places. They had used the pick
and shovel under the glaring sun of
the San Joaquin valley and under Ore
gon's leaden skies. They are capable,
intelligent men, good examples of the
average day-laborer qf the United
Their advent here and their subse
quent progress has been watched with
close interest by men who are consid
ering Hawaii's all-important question
the labor problem.
"How have these laborers doing day
labor during the hottest months cf the
year stood the work?"
"There has not been a single com
plaint, nor any sign of sickness among
the men," was Engineer Vincent's re
ply to the question. "The heat 4a not
so overpowering and oppressive as
you find in the San Joaquin valley of
California. Men who can work there
along the Sacramento and down near
Fresno, where the grapes grow, will
have no difficulty in bearing Hawaii's
heat. The wages paid the men we
brought with us are the same as they
were receiving on the Coast. They
are fair, living wages, enough to make
it some object for a man to handle a
pick and shovel."
"How do the men stand it? Look at
them and see for yourself," said the
foreman in charge of the gang working
on Union street. "We have had no
sickness, and the heat has not at all
inconvenienced the men. If laborers
attend to their business and do not
run around following cocktail routes
they can do as much work and suffer
as little here as anywhere else. Cer
tainly, white labor could exist in the
cane fields. But they must be paid
living wages and have the assurance
that they are to be treated like men,
not like dogs. These two conditions
granted, white labor could thrive and
grow fat in the Islands."
"See that gang of men," he contin
ued. "They are Galicians, the same
men that were released from jail Sat
urday. We have employed about twen
ty of them and so far they seem to be
willing workers. I should prefer them
to the Portuguese because the latter
are more anxious to talk than to
"No, sir, the heat has not seemed at
all oppressive to me," was the reply of
a brawny and browned typical Ameri
can laborer, as he brought his pick
down on the obstinate coral. "I would
rather be at work here than in por
tions of California, where the heat is
so intense that you would like to drop
when working under the blazing sun.
None of us have been sick, although
I don't think the water is as good as
it might be. I have never seen a cane
field, but don't see why w'hite men
couldn't do the same work that these
good-for-nothing Japs and Chinese do
we don't like them in California,"
he added, apologetically. "Let the
plantation owners pay man's wages
and give manly treatment and it seems
to me that the labor problem I hear
so much about Is solved."
The sentiments expressed in the
foregoing talks were echoed by all
along the line of sewers. The white
men, working with pick and shovel un
der a semi-tropic sun, representing as
they do the average American labor
er, are satisfied and contented. They
also say the labor problem is easy.
Repartee in Court.
There was a lively bit of repartee
in the West case, which has just been
concluded in the Circuit Court. The
witness on the stand was Judge Wil
cox, who was being questioned by Law
yer George A. Davis. The previous
questions and replies had been some
what torrid when the attorney asked:
"It is true that you lost your temper,
is it not, Judge Wilcox?"
"If I did, Mr. Davis, you have most
certainly found it," was the suave (?)
reply of the magistrate.
The presiding judge's call for order
lost to the world the rejoinder of the
New School Commissioner.
Mrs. E. O. Hall has been appointed
Commissioner of Education to fill the
vacancy caused by the resignation of
J. Q. Wood.
The board endeavored to hold a
meeting yesterday, but met with the
old stumbling block no quorum.
There are a number of appointments
yet to be 'made and the opening of the
school term is close at hand. Another
effort will be made today to hold a
A Correspondent Injured.
C. Clayton, the London correspond
ent who has been in Honolulu a short
time, met with a bad accident Sunday
night. He was walking along Bereta
nia street shortly after dark when he
came in contact with one of the ob
structions that line the mauka side.
He fell to the ground and received
several severe injuries. It is under
stood that he intends to press a claim
for damages either against the Gov
ernment or the parties who were re
sponsible for the condition of "The
Water Supply is Shut Off by the
Louis Marks, the genial proprietor
of the street sprinkling wagons, was
yesterday notified by the government
that the supply of water for his wagons
would have to be temporarily discon
tinued until the present drouth ends.
Mr. Marks, however, was equal to the
occasion, and before night had made
arrangements to secure a temporary
supply of water elsewhere. Should
the drouth continue these temporary
arrangements may become permanent
ones, as in any event the street sprink
ling will be continued.
Mr. Marks has also under consider
ation a plan by which the streets may
be either partially or wholly sprinkled
with salt water, and there are many
who would like to see him give this
system a trial at least.
Tonight at the residence of" Mr. and
Mrs. Walter C. Weedon there will be
an important Y. M. C. A. gathering.
This is the committee conference, in
which all the various committees of the
association will meet to plan the work
for the coming year. It is the first
gathering of its kind yet held in the
city. Mr. Weedon, the host of the oc
casion, will also give a brief review
of his experiences at the recent Inter
national Y. M. C. A. Convention.
Tonight at the Opera House "The

Resignations at Lwa. .

MANAGER M'STOCKER'S WORK
The Area Planted In Cane, Cash Ex
pended to Date and Amount of
Money on Hand.
F. B. McStocker, manager of the
Olaa plantation, has forwarded to the
directors a statement of the present
status of the development of the plan
tation. There are so many inquiries
from the stockholders which are an
swered by this statement that the com
pany authorizes its publication for the
general information of those interest
ed. '"V '
Mr. McStocker took charge of the
plantation in the middle of June.
There were then 50 acres of seed
cane in the ground, and, in addition to
cleared land planted in coffee, which
for the present will be retained, there
were of forest land cleared for coffee
purposes about 800 acres.
The present status is as follows:
AREA PLANTED IN CANE.
Rose Bamboo 120
Yellow Caledonia 25
Yellow Bamboo 35
In addition, to this over 200 acres of
cane have been planted by Olaa and
Keaau owners of land which will be
available as seed cane for planting the
Cane planting is now going on at the
rate of .50 acres a week.
As soon as additional plows are ob
tained this will be increased to 75 acres
a week. .
.It is intended to continue the plant
ing of Lahaina cane on the lower lands
for seed for about a month more. After
that only the bamboo canes will be
planted for use on the upper lands.
The present plan is to plant for the
first crop 6,000 acres in cane.
A large number of the outside own
ers of land in Olaa are desirous of
planting cane to be ground on shares
by the plantation.
It is estimated that-from 1,000
2,000 acres, will be available to
ground at the plantation fror
A form of contract for share culti
vation has been formulated, both for
planting on outside lands and for plant
ing on the company's lands. These
forms have been submitted to the di
rectors for approval and will be put in
to operation as soon as approved.
It is the intent of the company so
far as practicable to furnish seed to
outsiders to plant on shares for the
plantation at practically cost price.
In addition to the 300 acres plant
ed there is:

II. -P. BALDWIN AT OLAA.
II. P. Baldwin visited-and inspected
Olaa for two days last week, in com
pany with H. Morrison, manager of
Makaweli, and L. A. Thurston. Sever
al sites for the mill were considered,
and two selected, from which one will
be taken later.
Mr. Baldwin expressed himself "as
much gratified at the large amount of
work that had been, accomplished.
This is his first visit since the planta
tion was started. He said that the
lands made a finer appearance and
seemed richer even than he had ex
pected. The rich, dark-green and vig
orous growth of the bamboo and Cale
donia canes at the 1,500, 1,800 and 2,000
foot elevations especially impressed
him. He said that evidently these op
land canes were destined to carry the
sugar. industry, to much higher eleva
tions than would ever have been pos
sible with the Lahaina cane, which
does best at the lower levels. The- cor
rectness of this theory is shown by the
fact that at Charles Eagan's, at an ele
vation of 2,300 feet, considerably mau
ka -of the plantation, there is a fine
field of yellow bamboo cane, while the
Pahala plantation has recently har
vested a field of the same variety at an
elevation of over 2,500 feet, which
yielded over five tons of sugar to the
acre. . .
Had a Narrow Escape.
Acting Road Supervisor red Goudie
had a narrow escape Jast Saturday
afternoon. He had been out on a tour
of inspection of the road work now go
ing on and was coming along River
street when his horse suddenly bolted.
Goudie was thrown to the ground and
became tangled up with the harness
He was dragged quite a distance before
the animal came to a standstill. Mr.
Goudie sustained several severe bruises
and wrenches, but considers that he
was lucky to escape as well as foe did.
Got the Contract.
Arthur Harrison was awarded the
contract for building 4he new Brewer
block on Fort street. He filed his
bond on Saturday and has already
made a commencement on the work.
