GCOD FAITH AND PUBLICITY.
The Filipino.-, while being far from what has been credited to them as
"ideal peasantry." a i o yet about the only ones available as a stopgap f.r
the Hawaiian labor ur.ply. Tim Chinese are decreasiujr and those leaving the
Territory can not be replaced: the Japanese are decreasing so far as plantation
laborers are concerned, ami those leaving can not be replaced; the available
Hawaiian labor supply i- too limited and too uncertain to be depended upon;
the effort to bring white laborers into the Territory is meeting with slow
results, de-pite the cooperation of the government and the planters in the work
and the unstinted use of money.
The labMr committee of the planters' association has met the situation
presented by the introduction of a large number of impossibilities fairly.
Thev join with the community in the stand that such people can not be ad
mitted to the Territory and acknowledge that the importation of such is
wrong. How it comes that such undesirables are here, the planters profess To
be as much at a loss to answer as everyone else, and promise an investigation.
In the meanwhile, induced mainly through the titter impossibility of the
last Filipinos, an agitation is under way against any further Filipino immigra
tion. This agitation is here now, and will be in Washington as soon as certain
official reports reach there.
The question, to be faced is this: Where are the laborers for the cane
fields to come from to take the place of those wlm are leaving and until the
plans of the territorial board of immigration to bring in an available supply
of white labor can be worked out? Without labiir for the plantations will
come stagnation for Hawaii, a stagnation in which all will share.
On the understanding that Filipino labor is not being looked upon as a
settlement of the labor difficulty and the "manning the land'' problem of
Hawaii, but is to be regarded as a temporary expedient, and on the further
understanding that adequate steps are to be taken in future against "sub
stitutions" aiyl against the bringing here of the physically unfit, the opposi
tion now fast developing against Filipino immigration in any form will appre
ciably lessen, if it does nrd disappear altogether.
Tliero nrp verv few in Hawaii who fail to recognize the fact that it is
upon the sugar industry that this Territory lives, and there are very few who
would advocate immigration restrictions that would cripple that industry,
provided assurances are given that the health of the community is not to suffer
in the meanwhile and that the demands t Washington for the Americanization
of the Territory are to be met as rapidly as practicable.
Insofar as the further importation of Filipinos .is concerned, if the agents
of the planters in the Philippines will from now on live up to the agreement
made between the planters and the marine hospital service and have each
Filipino examined and individually certified to by the marine hospital repre
sentative in Manila, such certification to be checked up by either federal or
territorial physicians here before the Filipinos are admitted to the Territory,
the present objections would be to a very large extent removed. At the present
time, the agreement respecting federal examination of emigrants at Manila is
either ignored entirely or carried tm in a shamefully negligent manner.
In this connection, the territorial board of immigration would assist in
allaying the suspicion of the general public by keeping the public fully in
touch with what is being done toward promoting Portuguese and other white
immigration. Nothing will be lost through publicity, while considerable is lost
through attempts at secrecy.
Once convince the general public that there is sincerity behind the pro
testations of the planters and the government that an earnest effort is being
made to promote white immigration and there wijl be no step taken toward
embarrassing the planters in their search to tide over the present labor in
sufficiency. There are doubtless many Filipinos physically fit for admission and
to the presence of these no one would object.
To turn loose on the community such ones as have recently arrived, how
ever, is an impossibility, recognized by planters and everyone else. They are
no good to the plantations and would be a positive menace to the community.
Martin Hag an, managing director of
the Manila Times, was the guest yester
day of W. H. Habbitt of the labor
bureau of the planters' association,
who escorted the visiting newspaper

MAUI'S MODEST PROGRAM.
Two years ago the people xf the tight little island of Maui, and those of
the other tight little islands of Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe, sent a delega
tion to the legislature to get something. They wanted a pipeline for Kula and
they kept that pipeline so persistently to the front and rung it in n every
bill as a rider or amendment with such grim earnestness that today there is
a pipeline in Kula, delivering water to a thirsty land. That was Maui's first
taste of what can be accomplished with a long pull, a strong pull and several
Encouraged with success, Maui now has prepared a little program of wants,
which her members-elect are going to present, by degrees, to the forthcoming
assembly. The list of things to be asked for is not as modest as was. the list
of 1909, but what it lacks 'in modesty it makes up for in originality. It is a
nonpartisan list and one that disregards the Kepublican platform especially.
It is also a progressive list, including amendments to pretty nearly everything
in sight except the Constitution of the United States.
In the first place Maui wants Three-quarters of all the revenues collected
within her borders to spend herself, with suggestions how the other quarter
may be spent by the Territory for Maui's benefit, in addition she would have
the Territory build a few roads and turn them over to the county; she would
have a few public buildings put up and turned over to the county; she would
manage her own health affairs, her twn schools, have police judges elected, the
Sunday Act repealed and some radical changes made in the liquor law. These,
with some twenty or thirty other territorial upheavals, will satisfy Maui for
the time being.
The only thing about Maui's program that may prevent it being adopted
en bloc is the fact that it disagrees with itself in 'laces and fails to provide
for the repeal of The immigration tax law.
