Honolulu, Oct. 24, 1885. 48 iw
There have been Various rumors
afloat lor the last two or three days as
to a position the Government has taken
or intends to take on the Hawaiian silver
question. It is stated that this position,
whatever it may turn out to be,
will directly affect the payment of
taxes. It is further rumored that the
'position of the Government will be
based upon a demand that they are
compelled to collect the taxes in either
gold or in silver certificates. Nothing
can be said upon the question, as it
will appear in its new form, until it is
known just what new phase it will
The people generally, and the large
business firms of these Islands, who
represent the, bulk of the taxes of the
Kingdom, are naturally somewhat anxious
to know just what the new position
.w. .f U.r5..rtirvn tr tllic lll(.rmn MriU
be. It is but just and proper that the
tax-payers sliould be informed, as soon
as posible, as the time for the payment
of taxes is coming apace.
To avoid all chance of charges oeing
brought against the Government, as to
its motives in starting such rumors and
to clear away the coloring of political
pretext that is already attaching itself
to the actions of those in power, we
deem it not improper to call on the
Government to make an explicit state
ment, " by authority," as to the posi
tion it intends to take and the reasons
for it provided always, of course, that
a new step is contemplated.
From the disclosures made by some
of the American newspapers, it seems
that England is not the only country
which has the dishonor of a criminal
traffic in the virtue of young girls,
entailed upon it. We may prate of the
Pall Mall Gazettes exposures as we
like from a mock-modest standpoint,
but certain it is, that, disgusting and
distasteful as they are, they have been
the means of causing other nations to
pry open their dens of infamy. In the
case of America, the authorities have
become informed of the growing evil
before it has reached the systematic
proportions of, the London crime.
moral tone of Honolulu foreign society
is to be seen in the Sunday influences
exerted by our churches. A stranger
first observes the strong and'general
tendency of the church elements of
Honolulu society upon the tone of
public morality at least as far as it
affects the foreign population. In one
sense church-going and church-amuse
ments in Honolulu take the place of
the "worldy recreations " which are the
social drawback and moral curse of
Several officers, acting under order
from the Hoard of Health attempted to
seperate, last Friday morning at Kala
wao, Molokai, the children of a leprous
couple from their parents. The father
and mother tesisted most blrenuously,
cutting and severely wounding some of
the police. Help was sent for per
steamer JmntstI Dowsett which arrived
here Saturday night. Minister Gibson accompanied
by Captain Tell and several
police officers sailed at five o'clock this
morning on the Government tug Eleu
for the scene of the trouble.

a heavy rain set in and they scattered

pleaded not guilty. Sir Richard E.
Webster, Attorney-General, open the
case for the Crown. His address covered
the same ground as that of Mr.
Poland. Justice Lopes held that no
motives, no matter how worthy their
object, were sufficient to justify the
taking of a child without her parents'
consent, and If it had been obtained
in a fraudulent manner it was not con-sent
in the eyes of the law. The
of the witnesses so far is merely
a repetition of the evidence given at the
preltmanary examination. Eliza Armstrong
testified fully and clearly. The
trial will probably last one week. The
defendants arc chaged with misdemeanor
instead of felony, so as to
enable them to testify in their own behalf
and be liberated on bail during

Japanese Laborers in the Sandwich
To the Editor of the London 2'imes
Sir; My attention has been called to
a paragraph in The Times of yesterday,
referring to alleged cruelties to Japanese
laborers in the Sandwich Islands.
Having just returned from Honolulu,
and being deeply intrested in the subject
of Hawaiian immigration, I trust
you will permit me to say that the
account given by the correspondent of
the New York inbuilt is grossly exaggerated.
Consideiable jealously exists on the
part of the sugar refiners of the Eastern
States concerning the Reciprocity
Treaty between the United States and
the Hawaiian Kingdom, which confers
upon the sugar refiners of California a
substantial advantage j ahd, without
desiring to impute motives, I may say
from experience that anything detrimental
to the character of the Hawaiian
sugar industries is generally painted
n the strongest colors by the
of the-Eastern press.
During my stay in Honolulu last
July a report reached the authorities
that some difficulty had arisen with the
laborers on a plantation in the island of
Maui, and that cruelties were alleged
to have been practiced on a number
uf the Japanese. Without delay an
investigation was ordered, at which the
Japanese Commissioner and Consul,
the latter being the resident protector
ol Japanese laborers pn the island were
present, It was discoverer.) that some
instances of oppression had token
place, and in consequence the laborers
ivere promptly removed from the plan

DAILY HONOLULU PRESS, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1885.
tation in question, but nothing in the
nature of cruelties, such as arc desribed
in the Tribune correspondent's letter
had had any existence. Such
would be impossible under the
Hawaiian labor laws without subjecting
the planter to the most severe penalties,
and the Japanese Commissioner expressed
himself perfectly satisfied with
the general condition of his countrymen
on the plantstions.
I may add that during the past five
years I have faciliticd the emigration
of several thousand agricultural laborer
from the Azores and Madeira to the
Hawaiian Islands, where they have
found continuous and remunerative
employment, and have established for
themselves hundreds of properous an
happy homes, but not a single instance
of cruelty or inhumanity on the part of
the planters or their subordinates has
yet come under my notice. I have before'
me a report from the Hawaiian
Consul at St. Michael's Azores, from
which I gather that during the past
year there have been remitted by the
Azorcan emigrants in the Hawaiian
Islands, to their poor relatives and
friends at home, sums of money saved
from wages amounting in the aggregate
to nearly rrji.ooo sterling per month.
I trust to your well kn6wn impartially
to insert this' communication, and thus
remove from the character of the Hawaiian
planters a most unmerited
stigma. I am sir, your obedient
servant, Abraham Hoffnung,
Commissioner of Emigration in Great
Britain for the Hawaiian Kingdom.

who is in a position to know

expressed an opinion that the main
feature in the Indian "'policy of the Administration,
as it will be announced to
Congtess, will be a recommendation
that there shall be a radical change in
the methods of purchasing and issuing
provisions and all other supplies.
Almost every feature of the present system
is disapproved by the President.
.The President believes that if the army
is to be expected to prevent Indian
depredations, the military authorities
should be given power to assist in removing
the causes of dissatisfaction by
providing for the honest distribution of
supplies. I his is the policy which has
long been recommended by Generals

thirteen and no telling then if they
all were at home, although all in sight
evidently felt so.
The Gazette in its last issue had a
letter signed "Hilo.!. Of course residents
of Hilo know who "Hilo" is, and

a Caudy shop, as stated intlic Hilo
letter. Personalities are very unpleasant
oftentimes, and make enemies.

Trouble at Hakalau Plantation Oc

Our Island correspondent writes
from Hamakuapoko, Maui, as follows:
" It would seem that the late tiff
the managers of Paia and Haiku
Plantations on the one side and the
Board of Immigration on the other,
had resulted, after all, to the great advantage
of the plantations. Portuguese
labor has been flocking to them constantly
until their houses are all full
and still they come. It is the direct
effect of the certificate signed by the
Portuguese laborers and of private
letters written by them to their
friends in the other parts of the Islands.
The places of the Japanese laborers,
who were very troublesome and most
of them poor workers, are now filled
with Portuguese the most satisfactory
of all foreign imported labor. The
plantations have now more than they
want, and if the exodus from Kauai
and Hawaii still continues they will
have to call on their neighbors for
assistance in taking care of the families
which arrive by every vessel from
Honolulu. It might pay for some of
the other plantations to get up a
' Kaiu ike maka.
