COMMISSIONER
iMHSDEN
A Ctiat
Over a Smoke wth
Him
A Fow of His Viows Outlined which
May Load to Practical Results
Boneltclnl to tho Community
and Plantors Alike
President Dolo has somewhat
wUoly we think rewarded Mr
Joseph Marsdeu for eodio yoars of
honest effort on bohalf of his politi
cal party and tho country at large
with a titlo which carries with it
more appreciative honor than a
pretty Bjnibol dangliug at tho ond
of a riband for it boars with it tho
pleasing sonsoof the well earnod
estoom aud wot Illinois aud entails
no little discretion and labor on tho
part of tho ono honored Further
more it b an honor unsought and
given pro virtute and is not gilded
with a warrant ou the tnxpajors
Troasur for salary or expenses
Mr Marsden wanted a twelve
mouths or so vacation in tho old
countries to onjoy health and re
creation in his own way Bo is too
active minded a man to go glolio
trotting as a financially comfortable
loafer Hh must be doing aud
learning comet hmg for his adopt d
countrys good
Now after his varied experiences
on the inlands no man could be
fouud more appropriately fitted to
invest igato aud report upon tho
various sources from which n desir
able class of imunuriutH may be ob
tained as laborirs and xetllers m the
Hawaiian Islauds t han Mr Marsdeu
Ho is essentially a man of the peo
ple frank and hearty full of hon
fiommie joko and jest and as ho
I readies his bike right into tho
heart of tho country districts of
Europe so will his pleasing porson
alitj make a friendly record in tho
hearts of the vory classes he desires
to import to this country
No ono can for ouo moment
imagino him as a commissioner in
the European sense of tho word
clad iu a stiff uniform and covtuod
with copper lace and brass buttons
with a bosom einblazonod with
insignia and a pig sticker eutangled
between his legs but his ahrnwd
common sonso brain will get thoro
all the same as Commissioner and
philanthropist
Now wo dont propose to give a
vorbatim interview with tbo muoh
to bo congratulated Commissioner
the congratulations are first due to
him Hawaii will tako its share on
the completion of his labors but
wo will do a littlo yellow journal
ism of our own and attempt to
givo tho outlines of Mr Marsdeus
ideas as wo think wo gathered thorn
during a leisurely lazy oonvenation
during which mutual viows woro
oxchangod
To begin then with what ho will
uot attempt to do Ho will not try
aud briug peoplo hero simply to
work ou the plantations and ho will
uot arrange for males only Ho ia not
a labor commissioner
What ho will try and do will bo
to obtain from each satisfactory
district or community families to
tho number of 25 or more allied by
race language and natural Instincts
Thoeo will bo the foundations of
sotllemouts at the various planta
tions and will develop The males
and probably in some instances tho
females will coutraot for their 3 or
5 years of service Tho wages tby
will recbivo wilj be ample for them
to save a little to cultivato their
Hmall garden patches when they
get them aud to establish a home
at tho end of their contract when
thoy cau oithor reship or start out
for themselves
Tho main Idea is of course that
perhaps uot very much con be done
for sotno years with tho first arrivals
but as tho children aro born aud
riised tho breed will bo improved
by our public sohools and kindred
associations and thon no shall bavo
tho solid foundation for tho class so
much needed bore an Intelligent
and self respecting peasantry in llou
of merely the servile and irritable
and irritating Asiatics Wo shnll
have more citizens and more home
buildors
Mr Marsdeu works not for to day
or the temporary wants of tho labor
market for thoy can bo supplied
from the Orient but for tho futuro
colonization of our Republic with
European races of stability aud en
couraging disposition
We have tried all manner of ex
periments with the labor problem
in Hawaii and expendod vaster
amounts than the uniformed thinker
is awaro of iu this country to solve
that problem but hitherto unavail
iugly for the greater part of the
work has been based ou tho thought
of the present without looking
forward to permanent colonization
which adds to the influence popu
lation aud taxable revenues of tho
country
It will uot be fair to mention tho
special nationalities which Mr
Marsden has first iu view for he
will mako a thorough researoh iu all
countries that have a poorly paid
and overworked peasantry who aro
likely to appreciate more thoroughly
the benefits to bo derived under
favorablo circumstances by employ
ment and permanent residouce iu
Hawaii noi
Now suppose that Commissioner
Madden finds his uh iu Italy
Aus ria or olsowhore how ia he to
cacji them aud land them In
theory that is simple ennugb and
probably will work nut well In
practice after much managing and
executive ability Somtono will
have to pay the cost of importing
these families Of course as usual
tho planters will bear the brunt of
advancing tho expenses of the pas
sage money whioh as with tho Chi
nese will be doduotcd from tho
wages
Tho familios will aserahle at cer
tain European seaport dopots in
charge of their self elected chiefs
Hence thoy will be conveyed by tho
regular lines of steamers carrying
other immigrants to other depots
such as Hougkong Yokohama
Auckland Sydney or such ports as
have direct steam or sailing connec
tion with our ports
It is nut the intention of tho Com
missioner to suggest tho expensive
chartering of special vessels as
hitherto has been the vogue but to
make Uo of oxUtiug linos of steam
ers Probably spuoial rebate farts
might be arranged
This immigration aUo would flow
in gradually a few families at a time
and not come with an inundating
and embarrassing ru h If the first
comers aro well treated thoy will in
duce their friends to follow thorn
If successfully carried out in teu
yoars timo there is no reason why
Hawaiis population should not bo
increased by 200000 happy and con
tented people from Europe a large
