State Labor Commissioner
Says They Are Necessary
For the Farms.
Sacramento. Calif., May 30. Some
form of unskilled labor, such as is
now represented by the Japanese, ib
essential for the continuance and de
velopment of the specialized agricul
tural industries of California.
This is fhfi broad conclusion of the
-report of the state labor commissioner,
just submitted to the governor, on the
Japanese in California, which was pre
pared after over a year of careful field
work by a corps of special agents
among the farms employing Japanese.
The investigation was authorized by
act of legislature just after the anti
Japanese agitation in California in
190S-10, and the report consists of over
200,000 words exclusive of a mass of
tabulated statistics.
Oriental Problem Discussed.
The socalled oriental problem in this
state is thoroughly discussed in the
report and after searching inquiry into
all economic and social conditions,
finds that some form of farm labor
capable of independent subsistence,
quick mobilization and entailing no re
sponsibility upon the employer for
continuous employment, is absolutely
necessary to California's field, orchard
and vineyard Industries if these vast
enterprises are to be perpetuated and
developed. The report is of the opinion
thnt rhA .Tananflse who now perform
slirfitlv more than 50 percent of this I
labor, are second only to the Chinese .
Regarding complaints heard against
Japanese in districts in which thej are
largely employed the report states
theT arise from the Japsjatterapts to
secure higher wagfes. The rough aver
age wage in the fields, orchards and
vrds is. Riven ax- approximately
rS1.6tt per-day. Under (the contract sys-

to amore liberal form oi contract,
working together on shares; to grow
ing "crops on-ground held by them un
der cash rental, and in comparatively
isolated instances, to actual ownership
of the land.
"Jaoanese ambition," says the re
port, "to progress beyond mere ser
vility to the Plane of the better class
of American workmen, to own a home,
o operate industries, to be master and
r-ot slave, is of the same quality as
that of the Italian, the Swiss, the
Portuguese, the Russian, with whom
he competes. and is in line with the
ambition of that type of American who
will not compete with him. The mo-
ment that tnis amuuiuu w c-w.x. ,
the Japanese ceases to be an ideal
Conflict of Opinion.
The report finds a conflict of opinion
throughout the fruit Rowing district
regarding the Japanese. While man
growers are opposed to them, another
element declares them essential and
says the problem will require a modi
fication of th Chinese exclusion law,
with the admission of the Japanese and
Chinese on equa,l terms in restricted
Of the character of the Japanese
laborer and his desire f or an -American
education, the report speaks in high
terms. Of the responsibility and re
liability of Japanese contractors, siib
bosses and laborers, the "port states
thev do not compare unfavorably T.i.h
white men on the same stations. As to
the individual Japanese laborer, com
pared to the typical class of white
laborer now in the field and available
for the work, the report gives the
higher standard to the Japanese.
Jcp Becomes Americnnixed.
The investigators found the land
owning Japanese desired to make his
home in this country: adopting Amer
ican customs and closely following nls
American neighbor m many ways. The
agents invariably reported courteous
treatment and hospitality when visit
ing these men.
The report states it is not within
tis province to offer suggestions as to
the solution of the lahor problem pre
sented, but merely to present the facts
after rigid scrutiny of Japanese life in
Tlie Summary.

between the farm laborer utilized at
present in the great industries of the
orchard, vineyard and field and the in
dustries themselves has been developed
along lines of revolutionary character
and is practically impossible of modi
fication in any material degree.
2. That the problem of solving the
situation by drawing from the present
available white farm labor supply by
any known method will afford no
practical or material relief.
3. That the creation of an ideal
Intelligent class of white farm labor
to be drawn from at the sources within
the confines of the United States is
practically an impossibility for the
reason that such an effort would entail
an entire and radical readjustment of
economic conditions and the relation
ship that now exists between the grow
er and the system of transportation,
distribution and marketing.
Agricultural Activity.
4. That the perpetuity or continued
development of these great and highly
specialized forms of agricultural ac
tivity must largely depend ' upon a
supply of labor coming from without
the United States of such a nature
and character as to conform to the
condition resulting from the applica
tion of that law to the agricultural de
mands. 5. That the transition from the
cereal growing period ot development
of specialized agriculture Increased
the ratio of temporary help required
by the farming districts beyond the
normal available supply within the
state during period of largely in
creasing population.
6. The necessity for providng the
large number of temporary employes
engaged In the harvest with employ
ment during the various periods" other
than the harvest season, is a vital ele
ment In the solution of farm labor
IHMuIuclnt; the .lap.
After stating the belief that the
Japanese commercial element is mere
ly an incident in the problem and the
presence of the .Japanese in the cities
and towns a natural resultant of the
farming element, "without vital effect
so far as the possibility of competition
with the white man may be consid
ered," the report dismissed the question j
with the statement: I
'The displacement of the peo
would be acomplished without any
disturbance of the commercial activity
of the white people."
The Japanese popula'tloh' of Califor-
nia is given by the report as 41,628 on
Jan. 1, 1910, about 10 percent being fe
males. Of this number Go percent are
engaged in agricultural pursuits and
15 percent in domestic service of one
kind or another.
Eight hundred and seventeen chil
dren are attending California public
The Boss System.
The report goes at length into the
boss ssytem among the Japanese by
which mobilization is accomplished.
Work, it is stated, is not done on a
cooperative plan, but competition is so
well adjusted that it might be guided
by a central head. The contractors'
field and gang bosses, it is said, are
fully informed on all crop and market
conditions and even on all the charac
teristics of the various growers, be
fore any contract Is made. This in
formation is gathered by men de
tailed to traverse the sections under
consideration and such parts of the
reports as are deemed expedient are
given publicity In the Japanese press
of the state. As a result, the men are
ready to come, knowing what they
will meet with, whenever harvesting
time is at hand.
The report states positively that the
number of Japanese laborers obtain
able for the harvesting work this year
is far short of the number required.
"Close observation an&careful in
quiry by the field agents'-in this In
vestigation disclosedthe .belief that
the permanent absenceof the. Japanese
from the various fields'oCagricuItural
labor in wliich they have becorhefprom
inent would mean the probable suost
tuution of Hindu labor," says the re-
Japs as LnBd Oivners.
The report contains some Interesting
statistics on the physical aspect of the
Japanese In California The records of
the county assessors show 199 farms,
containing 10,791 acres, owned by
Japanese in the state. These farms
were assesed at $330,401 on laud and
?46,947 on improvements, making a
total of S377.32S and were mortgaged
to the extent of $173,5S4. The records
show also 185 holdings of town prop
erty assessed at $174,094 of which
$79,600 was on land and $85,334 on im
provements. These holdings were mort
gaged to the extent of 5359.
