When the Cromwell liae steamer Proteus arrived at her dock yesterday forenoon !130 laborers, employed by a labor agency tn York as field hands for a sugar plantation in Honolulu were embaxlced. but wiien a special train left the city for the west there were of these supposed laborers remain ing. The others had fled, for thsy had uever intended to do more than come to New Orleans with a free passage and meet triendii. These friends were banging around the ship's landing when the big vessel arrived! and it did not take tht so-called contract laborer more than half an hour to disappear. Some time ago representatives of the Honolulu Sugar Planters' Association arranged with a Xew -York agency 'for a large number of laborers. Fully 400 of these men. mostly Italians, were gathered as a result of very attractive advertising, but when they arrived at the New York wharf of the Cromwell steamer nearly all of the number deserted. Those who behind were possioly the beat of the lot for those who reaehed the city yesterday had evidently been collected iroui the lower quarters and slums of the big cities. They came from Boston. Providence and New York, and many gave strong indications of having been closely associated with the extremest and un-cleanest poverty. When the steamer reached the wharf there were a number of officials of the Southern Pacific line on band to' see that they were cared for. Manager Fay, Assistant General Passenger Agent F. S. Decker, City Passenger Agent Abbott and General Agent Morris 'of thetPulIman company were among tne representatives who had taken the trouble to -personally direct the departure of these men. ' The laborers, with two women in the party, wives of laborers? were quartered on the after deck,, and .a special gangway was run for the accommodation of these thoroughly unappreciative passengers Two tourist sleepers and a baggage car were on tne siue track near tne landing, but before the men boarded these cars the trouble that had been created during the voyage by one of the number began to show itself. A tall Swim- "who had brought to the agency eighty of- the number and remained as their complete ruler objected to every proposition made. He began to complain of the fare given on the slfio. The idea that such a class of nan. - , i. .... .. . . . ? snouiu ciaim tnat tej aacUDeen given decomposed food by the" Cromwell line had its comical aide, and the local railroad officials, who know different, laughed at the ideal The agitator saw ajt once that his movement would not stand and he abandoned the general claim and substituted a claim that .the men were. forced to eat hard-tack, sailors biscuits. The steward of the ship, hearing of the very bold statements of tkis trouble maker, vwalked over-, to where the cars lay and faced the men. He incidentally told of thelabor agitator's action on the ship. During the first two days he walked around the vessel with a pistol in his pocket. His actions were so offensive that it became necessary for the steward to' -send for- the dissatisfied citizen of Switzerland and' give him to clearly understand! that he would have to hide his pistol for the remainder of the voyage or be placed in irons. The notice had a very quieting effect, but whenfoace back on dry land the spirit arose again. The pile of indescribable baggage was thrown in a heap uponthe , wharf. fand the varied-looking laborers crowded around their very scant belongings while their leader told, of their troubles. This man's name was John; -Jensen, and he seemed very proud of Ibc tact, that he .-poke sis languages, although he waa going thousands the purpose of working as a day laborer in the hot tun of a sugar cane field. As soon as Steward Russell had corrected the food of ti.e Cromwell steamers was not fresh, Jensen opened- a new line The Italians in the party, numberia eighty odd, wanted to see the Italian con sul. Theywantedlthercpntract signed at once. He -claimed,. that, before the men left New York they Jrereiold they would receive three meals " the steamf ship, be begaa to1 complain, but seeing -the. shiner dJBcin Bear, he changwl his minjL The' meai were ate told they jroald day for their labor, and wqsld ..; have wit ten hours work.

B. Walker, who has been looking after the emigrant trains of the line for years. carrying- Chise through in bond. looked over tne lot and classed rheas as all bad. He will be ia chary of tlse train darinr the passage west, and will b? accompanied by G. Lopes, an Italian connected with the company. After seen talk on the part of Jensen the cars were finally loaded. The baggage car was filled with the baggage and locked, and the train ran down to the ferry. This insured holding at least a few of the passengers. In Algiers a kitchen car was attached and the tras made up. Mr. Walker. jat before the train started on its journey. called Jensen to one side and announced - that no more talk would be allowed, and if Jensen did not very quickly learn to keep quiet he would be thrown off the cars. Walker has been accustomed ti handling rough characters out west and did not intend to be gotten ahead of lv toughs from New York. The iron rollers ! of the Pacific slope found Walker more than they could handle, and the company had no fear of his ability to handle the j train load. - j About 2 o'clock in the afternoon the j train pulled out. leaving behind the twen men, and these men will have to stay behind. Several of the number on board stated that they never intended to sail from San Francisco. They onlj wanted to see the country and would desert at the points they fancied most. They had signed no contracts aud would! not sign until they reached the wst. and even then they would not sign unless the contract suited them. Quite a large number in the train stated that they were Italian citizens and wnntid to have the protection of the Italian consul in the contract. A number of Germans were also in the party, but the majority were Italians:and not of the trne laboring class. They were men accustomed to struggle for a living in the tenements of big cities, and while a few claimed to have worked in sugar estates of Africa, the majority admitted that they worked around cities. When the question of foreign citizenship was raised, a matter of considerable importance was touched. Honolulu is a city ot tne united states, ana tuere is a law against importing foreign contract labor to any section of the United States soil. It is doubtful if the men will be allowed to sail from San Francisco under contract, and still more doubtful if they will be allowed to land in Honolulu under contract. The first shipment of labor to the far away sugar lands of the Pacific islands did not seem to be a success. THE;iUU . -SIDI UUNDRY CO.
