HONOLULU, Jaa. 2, 09. At the cross
roads sf the Fadftc, 908 miles from San
Francisco, 4i mltee from Japan, about
40u mitae from Australia, and an almost
equal distance from our new possesions
in the PhiUpptae Islands, I begin this se
ries of letter for my American readers.
I am in tins United States of the Eastern
Pacific The Americas Sag floats from the
palace which was not long ago occupied
by King Kalak8.ua, and in which sits the
president of the republic of Hawaii, ready
at any moment to give place to the -new
gmernment as soon as Its exact form has
been determined by congress. I am 'n the
rlty of Honolulu, the capital of the islands,
one of the most beautiful cities of its size
on the globe. Its wide avenues are 1ined
with palm-shaded gaxaens, fenced with
hedges of oleanders and other beautiful
flowers. Its velvety lawns are at their
greenest now, m the heart of midwinter,
and the soft ozomc airs of the semitropics
are ever washing It clean. Behind me
rises the Punch Bowl, an extinct crator,
large enough to hold the drink of all the
gods of ail the nations, and not far below
It are the vast plantations en which is an
nually raised enough sugar to sweeten the
punch of all humanity.
Glrollngr the Pacific.
But, before I write more about Honolulu
as I see it in passing, let me give you the
outline of the tour which I am making in
the interests of The Oregonian. It will
comprise more than 26,000 miles of out-of-the-way
travel through the countries and
islands of the Pacific ocean, including Ja
pan, China, Malacca, the Dutch East In
dies, the Philippines, Australia, New Zea
land, the Samoas and the Fijte. It will be
a circle of the Pacific, ending, after an
other visit to these islands, at San Fran
cisco, where It began. I shall spend some
months la each of the above-mentioned
countries, describing the present condi
tions. Investigating the chances for Amer
ican trade and picturing by trade and cam
era the wonderful chaRges which are going
-on In the far East.
I want to describe Japan under the new
treaties, by which Americans can now do
business in any part of the empire: to
travel over China, making my way into
the interior; to look into railroads and
other undertakings which are now under
way; to describe how the English manage
their colonies at Hong Kong and the
Btralts Settlements, and to visit the won
derful island of Java, a colony of Hol
land, which supports more than 24,000,000
people on an area about as large as the
state of New York. From Java I may pos
sibly visit Sumatra and Borneo, and thence
make my way down to Australia, the
greatest of England's colonial possessions.
Australia ie a continent In itself, and Is
fast being opened up to American trade.
It has vast cities, and Is a. world of Us
My first field of work will be the Phil
ippine islands. I shall leave tomorrow
for Japan, where I remain long enough
to prepare a couple of letters, and then
push on rapidly, via Shanghai and Hong
Kong, to Manila, so that I can be there
a. month from today.
From Manila I expect to make expedi
tions from island to island, as the state of
fighting will permit. I want tojook Into
the resources of the country, to describe
the plantations, the mines and the for
ests, and give you pictures of the cus
toms, habits and character of the people,
as possible American citizens. I go with
out prejudice and with the one aim of as
certaining and writing the truth as It Is.
This undertaking is no small one. The
Filipinos are, as the commission sent out
toy the president has stated, rather an ag
gregation of tribes than one nation. Each
island has its own peculiar savages, and
there are parts of the country which have
never been explored. This Is so even In
I-uzon, where the Spanish influence has
been the strongest. There are said to b&
S3 distinct tribes, who speak 60 different
languages. There are many re
ligions. Home tribes are nature worsh'p
ers. who live in the trps, in huts built
in the branches high up from the ground,
Others are Mohammedans, ttho are more
into'erant and fanatical than the dervishes
of Turkey, and others are Buddhists, Con
fucianists and Taoists. There are Chris
tians of various kinds, and, altogether, a
strange conglomeration of different beliefs.
The customs of some of the people are
strange. The Caltmianes islands have sav
ages who wear gowns of bark and who
eat their meat and fish raw. On the
island of Palawan, in the same vicinity,
are fierce Dyaks and pirates from Borneo,
and on Mlndoro Island, which is as big as
Connecticut, and Is, I am told, only 130
ml.es from Manila, the men go naked and
the women wear only colls of bark around
their waists. These men are head hunters.
They are said to eat monkeys, snakes,
crocodiles and lizards.
On other Islands slavery Is still fife.
There Is a system of debt slaves, and
wmen and children axe actually bought
and sold. It te said you can buy a girl for
?3 and that a 16-yoar-old maiden can be
purchased for five bushels of rice. If this
Is so I shall buy a girl and photograph
her and the stave dealer. In order to tell
3 u just how the business is done. I shall,
of t ourse, give, the young lady Immediate
frctdom at the close of the purchase.
Ir addition to the savages, I shall de
fc ibe the civilised Filipinos; they have a
character of their own. and they will be
the ruling class In case the Islands are
gien over to native government.
The real value of the islands and their
possibilities as an investment field for
Americans will be another matter Into
whlh I shall look. J want to tell you
how business is done; about the methods
of buying and selling, and the questions
ff ages, and how money is made or lost
In the various enterprises common to the
Some of the islands have millions of dol
lars' worth of sugar estates; others have
plantations for raising hemp; there are
pearl banks off the island of Basllan. and
I am told rich deposits of coal and gold
exm In other places. The t'raber resources
arc it is claimed, enormous, and the
Chances for cottee-raising good. The rail
road schemes, electric light prepositions
and other matters. Including the oppor
tunities for the smaller capitalist and in
vestor should furnish Interesting matter.
I haw alread seen some striking evi
dence of the wonderful Increase which is
taking place In our trade with the Far
Kast All the steamers which are now go
ing between Hawaii. China, Japan and
Australia are loaded to their fullest oa
pacm I came to Honolulu on the China,
the largest of the Pacific Mall steam
ships it is packed with freight for China.
Japan and the Philippine, to such an
t,t"ilt5,t a P1" of lts MH space Is
filled with coods. and It has to steam
much 6lower In consequence It was a
dav late on this account in coming to
Honolulu, and will probably be otlll later
tit reachta Tokohama. It left on the
docks at San Francisco a lot of freight
which It was not able to carry, and this
is I am toi the ease with nearlv every
ship which U a c that port. The "passen
ger accommodation are strained t their
utmost I found the ship fn when I ar
rived at San Francisco and was onlr
M to secure my passage by a berth
being given np at the last moment. I
was told that six other passengers were
waiting for berths, and that the only safe
"way now Is to engage your cabin weeks
Xcw Stcamsnlp Lines.
This Is the more remarkable consider
ing the Increased number of steamers
which have been put on at the chief
ports for China and Japan. When I first
crossed the Pacific, ten years ago. there
were only two lines of steamers, little
2000 and 3000-ton boats, which sailed from
San Francisco. Now there are three lines
from San Francisco alone to Japan; the
Canadian Pacific from Vancouver, and
lines from Portland, Seattle and Tacoma. I
; aiKuiuo .re SLruicning out ior
their share of the trade, and, beginning
with this month, the government of the
mikado will, for the next 10 yeare, pay
annual subsidies of more than 4,000,000 yen
a year to the Nippon Tusen Kalsha and
the Toyo Klsen Kalsha lines, running to
Europe, and also between Japan and the
United States. These two lines wiU get
more than 1,500,000 yen a year from the
government for their United States ships
alone. The Toyo Klsen Kaisha has three
o-juv-toii snips, wnicn run irarn aan Tan
clsco to Hong Kong, stopping at Hono
lulu and the Japanese ports en route, in
conjunction with the Pacific Mail and the
Oriental and Occidental lines, so that with
these lines they furnish sailings from
San Francisco to Japan every eight days.
The Japanese ships have English offi
cers. They are the finest ships now on
the Pacific. The Nippon Tusen Kalsha
PRESIDENT S. B.
has also steamers of 6000 tons. The Ca
nadian Pacific ships are large. They run,
as do all the Puget sound ships, to Japan,
by the northern passage, not calling at
Honolulu. The Canadian Pacific has, how
ever, a line to Australia, which calls here.
There is ateo a line to Australia from
San Francisco, which calls at Honolulu.
It is owned by the Spreckles, the sugar
millionaires, and makes weekly sailings
to the Sandwich islands.
Coat of Crossing' tlie Pacific.
As to sailing rates, they are about the
same on the different lines. The passage
to Honolulu from San Francisco is 575 for
the first cabin, $35 for the intermediate
and $25 for the steerage. The rates to
Yokohama are $200 first cabin, $100 inter
mediate and $85 steerage, and to Hong
Kong or Shanghai $225 first cabin, $115
Intermediate and $100 steerage. TO Ma
nila the first cabin rate is $255. The
steerage rates are especially profitable.
The accommodations are only fitted for
Chinese, but there are from 500 to 1000
of these on nearly every ship. We are
carrying on the China 650, which at $100
each makes a cash receipt of $65,000 for
this class alone.
The Pacific trade is increasing so fast
and the lines are so profitable that a
large number of new ships are now being
built to ply between the Chinese, Japan
ese and United States ports of the Pacific.
The Pacific Mall Steamship Company, the
president of which is C. P. Huntington,
has under construction at Newport News
tv. o 10,000-ton steamers, which will be add
ed to Its line from San Francisco to Hong
Kong. These ships will be equal to the
best of the Atlantic liners. Each will ac
commodate 185 first-class passengers, put
ting only two persons in each stateroom.
I am told that the Santa Fe Railroad Com
pany Is building three large steamers to
run from San Diego to Hllo, In the Sand
wich islands, and thence to Japan and
China. It already has a line of cargo
boats, but these new steamers are to be
fitted for passengers and freight and are
to be up to date in every respect.
Northern Lines Movlnsr.
The Great Northern, the president and
moving spirit of which Is James J. Hill of
SL Paul, is said to have four 10,000-ton
steamers under construction to add to the
line already plying between Seattle and
Japan and China, and the Northern Pa
cific expects to add large ships to these
now sailing in connection with its line
from Tacoma to the Orient Claus Spreck
els is building three new 6000-ton boats for
his line to Australia, and the Chicago,
Burlington & Quincy is said to have a
trans-Pacific line in contemplation.
The Increase In the freight is so great
that it Is believed that all of these ships
will have plenty to do. I was told at Port
land, the other day, that there were flour
mills there which were running day and
night to supply the Chinese demand for
American flour. On board the China there
Is the representative of one of the largest
milling machine companies of the United
States. He is on his way to Shanghai to
put up there a modern 300-barrel flour mill,
which will cost more than $100,000, The
mill 1b being erected for a Chinese com
pany, and It will probably grind American
wheat, though the Chinese say they can
get wheat In China.
The increased trade of the Pacific is In
evidence here in Honolulu. I have never
been In a town of this size which showed
so many signs of prosperity. It Is a town
of rich men and no beggars. The streets
are full of business, and the stores are as
fine as those of a city of four times its
size In the United States, Everything has
an American air. The names over the chief
Btores are more American than those of
our American cities, where there are so
many German and Jewish names, and the
faces you see on the streets are chiefly
of the American type. I refer, of course,
to the whites, and not to the large Asiatic
and native .element.
A Cosmopolitan Crovrd.
I had a gcod chance to see something of
the crowd while I waited at the postffice
for tho mall to be distributed. The islands
have, you know, their only communication
with the outsideworld by steamer, and the
China had. brought in the latest Intelli
gence. There were a great number of
men at the postofHce, making up as cos
mopolitan a crowd as you can find any
where. There were whites of every nation
of Europe, mahogany browns from the
islands, sallow-faced Portuguese and yel
low of -all shades from China and Jupan,
Amon.g the whites, the Americans pre
dominated, although all the whites were
apparently of the better classes and well
Good-looking men they were, and nearly
all young. Many1 wore Panama hats and
suits of white duck. Many were without
vests, their pantaloons upneld by wide silk
sashes or gorgeous belts, and not a few
wore Indian silk pagaries or sashes about
their hats. The language used In most
cases was English, although the signs
over the postofHce windows were in five
languages Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese,
Portuguese and English.
I find that every store has employes who
speak all of these languages, although the
chief business of the larger stores is done
in English. The goods are largely Amer
ican, and the show windows of the blgget
establishments aro as tastily dressed as
those of the United States. Everything
that you can buy In any town of 100,000
people In the United States Is sold here.
There are large bicycle stores, book, stores,
clothing stores and groceries. There are
electrical establishments, gun stores and
all sorts of banks. Investment companies
and safe deposits. There is a stock ex
change, which has memberships costing
$5000 apiece, and there the bulls and bears
meet daily and speculate in sugar and
other stocks. Of late, sugar has been go
ing up, and, a large number of men have
made money in stock speculation.
There are four savings banks in the isl
ands, and the postofHce has a savings bank
connected with it, which has done a great
deal of good. It. will, I suppose, be dis-

continued as soon as the new government
Is supplied by congress.
The Honolulu Telephone Company is said
to be making money. It charges" $3 a
month for residences and $4 for business
houses, and every subscriber In theclty
has h!s own wire. The Electric Light
Company is doing well, and so is nearly
every institution of a similar nature. The
people are, however, to.a certain extent,
a close corporation. They believe In tak
ing care of their friends, and the outsider
has hardly a fair cnance. There are many
trade restrictions especially on commer
cial travelers, who have to pay $500 for
the privilege of selling goods or taking or
ders on this Island, and $255 for the rignt
to do the same on each of the larger Isl
ands of the group. Every man who sells
anything in Honolulu has to pay a yearly
sum, ranging from $51 to some thousands
of dollars, according to the character of
the business and the amount done in the
city, so that no one can start in any kind
of business without some cash at the be
ginning. At present the great question with the
people of the Hawaiian islands is what
the United States is going to give them
In the way of a government. They don't
want to be under any colonial bureau, but
think they should at once be admitted as
one of the territories of the Union, and
should be given territorial officers. I have
met, during my stay in Honolulu, the
chief officials of the present regime, and
have somewhat looked into their govern
mental establishments. They already have
a far better organization than most of our
territories, and it would, I think, be an
outrage to put them under any other form
of government than that awarded to the
best American citizens under similar con
ditions. They are not to be classed for
a moment with such people as those of
Puerto Rico and the Philippines. They
have a high grade of civilization, and In
intelligence, wealth and good order will
rank with the people of any part of the
Cliat With President Dole.
Among the other officials whom I have
met was President Dole, the head of the
Hawaiian republic. My Interview with
him took place In his office in the palace,
a great two-story building, which now
belongs to Uncle Sam. It is surrounded
by a 10-acie park filled with many vari
eties of palms and other tropical trees,
and altogether is finer perhaps than any
statehouse west of the Mississippi riven
Just opposite it, in another large park,
are the government buildings, which also
come to Uncle Sam, and which are like
wise a magnificent possession.
Said President Dole, In response to my
question as to the effect the annexation
of the Islands had had. upon busness and
"The Islands are in a good financial con
dition. Business of all kinds Is better
than It has ever been. Our Imports are
Increasing and there has been a rise In
the values of real estate and sugar 6tocks.
Property In Honolulu has, gone up, and
many new buildings are being constructed.
You must remember, however, that this
Is not a new country. It has had Its es
tablished institutions for many years. We
are, in fact, older than any part of the
United States west of the Rocky moun
tains, and for the past 50 years and more
our resources have been steadily develop
ing. The business of the country has al
ready been worked up by the local firms,
and there Is not the chance for a boom
such as you would expect In one of the
newly-opened up terrtonea of the West."
"Have you had much increase In your
population since the annexation act
passed?" I asked,
"Yes. some; but not a great deal,'' was
the reply. "You see, it Is only a few
months since our annexation was consum
mated. We are still unsettled as to just
what our government Is to be, although
we hope it will be as a new territory of
the United States, When all Is settled, I
look for a considerable immigration,
though not of the character which usually
rushes into a new country."
Chinese ana Japanese.
"la there much room for the poor im
migrant here, Mr. President?" I asked.
"Not a great deal," was the reply, "al
though there are some places for the
proper men. Is' one should come without
some capital, but with a few thousand
dollars there are opportunities for the
right men to do well in coffee-raising, co
operative sugar planting and small farm
ing. There are some few government lands
left, and the tendency wl4 -be, I hope, to
divide up the large plantations so that
the crops may be raised by many small
"How about the Chinese? I understand
they monopolize tho labor market and the
small farms,' sa.d I.
"They do bo to some extent, in connec
tion with the Japanese and tne "'Portu
guese. AVe have In round numbers about
21,000 Chinese, 24,000 Japanese and 1500
Portuguese on the Islands. They are
chiefly employed as workmen upon the
sugar plantations; some of them raise rice
and do small farming. Since the annex
ation, no Chinese have been Imported,
and, as far as the government ' is con
cerned, no Japanese. There are some
kinds of labor which the Asiatics are said
to perform better than the whites, and I
suppose they will be employed for such
labor in preference to the whites as long
as they do so." - v .
"Will the Hawaiian islands ever become
a state in the sisterhood of the United
States, Mr. President?" I asked.
"I hope so," replied President Dole.
"But I do not think that time will come
for many years yet. The Islands will I
think, gradually grow in population and
wealth. Their people already have & high
state of civilization, and I see no reason
why, when we have the requisite number
of people, we may not expect the great
honor of statehood."
"Aro the royalists reconciled to the pres
ent situation, Mr. President?" I asked.
"I think they are becoming so," was- tho
reply; "I believe they -will eventually re
gard the annexation as the best thing that
has ever happened to us, and that there
will be nowhere In our common country a
more universally patriotic community than
that of the Hawaiian islands."
