V IB THE EXCHANGE The Question of Life insurance Was Being informally Discussed. That there has been friction or talk of the formation of a new Stock Ex change because of disagreements in the workings of the Honolulu Stock and Bond Exchange, is denied by officers of the latter organization. An officer stated yesterday that a special meeting was held Monday afternoon for the purpose of going over new by-laws and some paragraphs were more or less dis cussed and during the discussion, which was informal, one of the members, who had given notice before the meeting that he must leave at 4 o'clock to attend another meeting, left the meet ing, but not because of friction as alleged. Willard E. Brown, a prominent member of the Exchange said: "There is one feature of the Stock Exchange which we have always had in our by-laws and that is the life in surance clause wherein each member is insured for $2500. We have a donation fund of $15,000. The interest of this fund is expected to take care of any death claims under the donation fund. The committee appointed to meet this matter of insurance said: " 'Your committee is of the opinion that the life insurance is not a proper function of the Stock and Bond Ex change.' The committee went on to say that it was impracticable in a meas ure, and it recommended that the life insurance feature be dropped and that Article 13 of the Constitution be re pealed. Two Claims Faaa. , "The membership, as in every ex change, is constantly changing. Old members retire and new members take their places and we have no examina tion as is usually required by insurance companies. But some of the original members of the Exchange feel that it is unjust to have to repeal this feature, having already contributed indirectly for many years. Out of this fund two claims have already been paid, in the cases of the late E- C. Macfarlane and Albert Eaas. "One of the members objected to passing the proposed by-laws at this time because he had not had time to read them and familiarize himself with the proposed changes. Consequently, the meeting was somewhat informal be cause it was considered that that mem ber's objection was a reasonable one and Le should be allowed more time to read the by-laws and for that rea son only, the members decided to take no action. "There was no intimation that a new Exchange would be formed. I had to leave the meeting at 4 o'clock to attend another meeting and so stat ed before the meeting was called to gether, that I would have to leave at that time."

That satisfied the Waialua men, but they said that some would go over and hold a meeting anyway. They did so. Strikebreakers for Ewa. About 350 strikebreakers will be sent from Honolulu today to work at Ewa in place of the strikers. They wilt be j taken down on the special train and i returned to town in the evening. . 3Sio j strikebreakers will be sent to Waialua. i Tour of the Consul. Consul-General Uyeno made a tour of the plantations on Monday start ing with Waimanalo. He made the tour in company with Eleve Consul Abe. He spoke to the laborers and told them not to believe any rumor concerning his position in the strike matter unless the information came over his own signature. He advised them to stay on the plantation and be neaeeable. It is said that there is little likelihood of the plantation be ing tied up. "Arch Sycophant." The Consul did not find Manager Adams at Kahuku, he being aDseni from the estate at the time. The leaders of the strike met the consul and the latter talked with the strik ers near the mill. . He asked them why they had tried to oust the four Japanese employes against whom they seemed to have been particularly ag gressive. They answered, "Because they were sycophants." He asked them what they meant by a sycophant and they defined the word as de scriptive of a man who is favorable to the planter and was "in" .with the sugar interests. The consul said tnat when he first came to Honolulu and issued a proclamation to the Japa rese he had stated that the best way for .them to get along in a com munity was to live in peace with the Americans and had urged the Japa nese to approach the Americans in the most peaceable manner possible. If approaching the white people on this basis and to meet and be with them was to be a sycophant, then he must be the "arch sycophant." If the planters regarded these four men with favor it was to their credit and because they had proven themselves worthy workers and the planters had faith in them. He said that outside people are get ting the benefit of such favors and the four men were lucky. The Consul spoke further as to what the Japa nese should do in the strike situation, advising them to be peaceable. He appeared to make a good Impression. Visited Worst Camp. At Waialua the Comr.il went to a section where the most rabid of the agitators was located, and spoke to about 300 laborers. They listened very carefully. When the Consul finished his address he asked if they agreed with him. They replied that he was right. He said that when they left their homes and went out on the highways it was his duty to advise them. Their economic matters -were ! outride his function. , Soga Is Downhearted. Editor Soga of the Nippu Jiji whose advocacy of the Higher Wage and strike propaganda has been incen diary, is said to be downhearted over the action taken by the Japanese Merchants' Association on Sunday. This was a prop upon which the agi tators depended, and that being re moved, Soga is feeling badly. He has neglected his desk to a large ex tent, and his work is. being largely done by his assistant Tasaka and Ne goro, the agitator. Effect on Merchants. The effect of the strike upon the Japanese merchants will be disastrous if it continues long. Some merchants who had goods on the Siberia were put to straits to meet the obligations incurred. The small stores on the plantations are especially hard hit, for besides losing their customers by the exodus to Honolulu, their collec tions have been extremely poor. The Japanese on being paid off, were will ing to contribute to the maintenance fund, but did not show any zeal in paying their personal debts. The Chinese storekeepers are also up against it, particularly those who gave credit to the Japanese. The Chinese employed extra collectors, but no money was brought in. The Japa nese positively refused to pay. It is said that many' of them, on. returning to the plantations, will not take their old jobs, but "will seek work on neighboring estates so that they will not be obliged to face their creditors. Conservatives Now Aggresive. When the strike began the conser vative element of the Japanese com munity was placed in a defensive position by the methods of the agi tators. Since the Japanese merchants got into the affair the conservatives have come to the fore and are now in the aggressive class for peace. They hope now to be able to persuade the laborers to return to the plantations. The prospect for an early settlement of the whole matter is much brighter. All Plantations Running. In despite of the exodus of Japanese workmen Honolulu, Oahu, Ewa, Wai alua and Kahuku plantations are running as usual, but shorthanded of course. Strikebreakers are still em ployed at Aiea and Waipahu. Waia nae is working with its regular force of Japanese. The Consul's Position. A published statement that Consul General TJyeno was not well received during his visit to Waianae planta tion on Monday is reported to be er roneous. This statement makes it ap pear that the Consul spoke to the laborers, as he did at the other plan tations, and that they did not take k&ndly to him, believing him to be friendly with Makino. This is entire ly misleading and is not fair to the Consul. As a matter of fact the Con sul did not address the laborers at Waianae, nor did he receive a cool reception. He found the conditions satisfactory at Waianae and there arose no necessity for making an ad dress. The Consul's attitude toward the agitators is evident from the official statement which he has issued to the press of his position with reference to the present labor upheaval. It is known that the agitators have en deavored to make use of the Consul's silence and have been turning it to their own account. His previous si lence, however, has made the present instructions to his people more ef fectual. No Strike on Hawaii. Letters received here yesterday from Hawaii state that there is no prospect of strikes on that island. At the meeting of Japanese delegates from different plantations held in Hilo last week, it was decided to postpone any action whatever for the present, pend ing the result of a careful study of the labor situation. A Sign of the Times. A householder, living in the vicinity of Emma square, overheard a statement; yesterday to the effect that three strik ers who have been living m japanee servant quarters near her premises, for An absolutely new line of draperies at alarmingly low prices this week.
