Messrs Castle Cooke retain an interest in the business and solicit for it
a continuance of the patronase so kindly extended I bom in the past
Bolaxtng Exclusion
It is roportod that communication
between the Chinese Miuiater at
Washington aud tho Chinese Con
aul at Honolulu is to the effect that
n now treaty with China is ninrie
necessary by our appearance in Ha
waii and the Philippines that there
in tho strict excluoiou foaturea of
our present troaty will bo softened
and relaxed During the discussion
of Hawaiian annexation The Call
declared that this policy would be
inevitable if wo acquired tropical
possessions with the expectation of
getting commercial value out of
them White men cannot work in
the plantations of Hawaii The cli
mate bars them out Without coolie
labor there the production of the
islands will decline to the zero where
it stood when reciprocity mad su
gar of sufficient value to warrant
the importautinn of Asiatic coolie
labor When annexation occurred
it was given out that our Chiueso
exclusion laws would be extended
and our non contract and other la
bor laws would speedily follow ro
that equality in tho kind and cost
of labor would exist between tho isl
ands and the continent
It is evident that this policy col
lides with the commercial expecta
tions which induced annexation and
that it is withdrawn and tho plant
ors are to have liberal treatment in
respect to their labor supply eo as
to avoid that lack of laborers which
would first caitBO a substantial in
crease in wages to tho lowering of
profits and finally the disappearance
of a consrquential surplus of pro
duction
Our practical homogeneity of oli
mate and physical conditionn has
heretofore simplified the problem
of labor and wages Thero has ben
a fair equality of hours rights and
wages in all parts of the United
StateR A3 we enter tho tropics this
condition ceases Our peoplo de
maud commercial advantages to off
set the cost of conquest and govern
ment Commerce cannot bo without
the surplus productions of labor
Therefore tropical commerce de
pends upon that form of labor suited
to the climate which must be in
some way servile Our home labor
laws cannot apply to servile labor
for with their application its servil
ity ceases and without servility its
usefulness aud profit to the employ
er cease
These facts give color to the re
port of a new treaty with China
which will bo a novelty because it
will continue restriction as to our
continental pospessions and relax it
in our newly acquired islauds There
in will first appear the inequality of
law required by inequality of phyni
cal conditions and it will bo official
notice served on Amorical labor that
it has no place in tho tropics
Other departures from our domes-
Btio system will of necessity occur in
quick suoceBBion
It is evident that the inilueuce of
the Hawaiian plauters put tho code
of thoso islands to sleep on the files
of the last Congress They desire
to entronoh coolie labor in u now
Ohiuese treaty whjoh can b easier
ratified by the Senate than a law to
seoure the same end oau pass both
houses of Congress
The victory so far is distinctly
with those who want ohoap labor
They refuse to submit to equality of
law and wages In tho logical do
velopmont of tho issue their compe
tition with the products of our
domestic labor will finally cause its
employers to clamor for equality
As the employers in our tropics hold
the whip hand aud refuse to permit
their labor and wages to be leveled
upwill not be the final result be that
nur domestic labor and wages will
bo leveled down
In popular government inequality
is odious and finally yields as slav
ery did to freodom which became
the universal law of tho republic
ijV -
Now there is a change of ideals
That wan au ago of sentiments this
is one of commercialism and with
its spirit permits n biuher leyol of
labor and wages in the temperate
than in tho torrid zone S F Call
