and the Chinese
"The exclusion of Chinese, the admis
sion of whom is the only possible solu
tion of the present labor problem in the
Hawaiian Islands, has done more to con
vince the residents there that annexa
tion to the United States was a wrong
move than anything else that could
have come up. Touch the sugar Indus
try and you aim a blow at the whole
business of the Hawaiian group, for
sugar is the main thing there. It is
time the United States government was
waking up and doing something to re
lieve thg pijjBent strain." '
The above? statement, 'made by one
who was long a resident of the Ua
wallans, and whose integrity will be
vouched for by half a million people, is
moat significant. Rev. K. J. H. Van
Deer 11 n was the speaker and he directed
his remarks to a reporter for The Jour
nal. Rev. Van Deerlin, who has been
for some time In this city, will leave
this evening for Seattle, where he lias
accepted a call to the United Anglican
Church of Kent, a suburb Of the Wash
ington metropolis.
Rev. Van Deerlin, contrary to the
generally expressed opinion, is a strong
believer in "Prince Cupid," recently
elected to represent the Territory of
Hawaii in the American Congress. Al
though it has been announced that
"Cupid" would favor an open town,
gambling, houses of prostitution, etc..
Rev. Van Deerlin takes an opposite
"Prince Cupid' Is a very fine man,7, he
said, "and he Will not run to extremes In
his views. He is very popular among
the natives and with the Americans as
"Do the people of Hawaii believe a
mistake was made when the country
waa placed under the American flag?"
was asked.
VThey did not until the labor troubles
came up." Rev. Van Deerlin replied.
"The natives are too fat and shiftless
to work, the Japanese think they are too
mart, and the Chinese have to be de
pended upon for the plantation labor.
Porto Rlcnns were brought there, but
they did not prove a success and the
sooner they return to their homes the
Rev. Van Deerlin was for fodr years
president ,of the standing- committee of
the United -Anglican Church In the
Hawaiian Islands, and In that capacity
visited every section of the gjoup. He
ha.g been on the American continent
several months, having returned to San
Francisco from Honolulu some time ago.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 1. At 11 o'clock
this morning a bugle In the new marble
corridors of the White House sounded
the President's eall. Immediately the
President and his wife, followed by the
cabinet with tneir wives, proceeded down
the broad stairways nnd passed from
the corridors to the blue room, where
they took stations at the bay windows.
Today's reception was the most brilliant
the national capital has ever seen. The
specially invited guests, who on former
occasions were crowded behind the Presi
dent and his cabinet, were today placed
opposite them, where they were able to
greet the long line of visitors. Col.
Bingham was on the President's left.
In full uniform, and Introduced each
visitor to President Roosevelt.
. As soon as places had been taken -the
United States Marine Band played "The
Star Spangled Banner," which was fol
lowed by patriotic airs during the entire
reception. In compliance with a time
honored custom the diplomatic corps
was first headed by Von Hnlleben. who
la now dean. The genial figure of Iord
Paupcefote. who long headed it. being
sadly missed. The diplomatic corps,
after the reception, went to Secretary
Hay's annual diplomatic breakfast.
Crowds on Streets and in the Clubs
Greet 1903.
The New Tear was welcomed last night
with noisy demonstration by the "Iiie
Watch." Whistles were blown and the
bells rang out a noisy greeting to 1903
and a parting to the old year. Crowds
gathered on the corners and shouted and
sung as the hour of 12 struck. Fireworks
were set off and the resonant firecracker
gave sharp intonation to the peeling of
the fire bells.
At .the various clubs of the city mem

toasts to the coming twelve months. The
theatre crowds lingered to enjoy the
street scenes, and added their cheers to
the shouts of the small boy. Nineteen

Rev. Cohen does not believe that Vic

"Railroads re needed." he said In
response to a o.uery, "but Victoria will

evidence of this even now. But Victoria
will not be the outlet for this produce.

Aid in General StriK-lf- One
Should Be Declared-Labor Leader's
Views on the Matter,
Close on the htels of the disclosures recently made exclusively by The
Journal that the eniplcycs of the Breat northern, Worth era Paciflo and
the Canadian Pacific were contemplating a strike to enforoe their demands
for higher wages, comes tlie Information that within ishe last few days the
switchman employnd by the Southern Pacific have presented like demands.
Managtr XoehUr, who represents the Southern Faolfie In Portland was
the oOclal approached. He was asked to sign a new agreement by whloh
the wages of the men were to be considerably incroased, bat at once re
fused to do so. This action now puts the ft. P. employes in the same po
sition as are those of other roads anS in case a strike Is declared it mans
that the railroad workers of the Northwest will e able to put up a solid
front with a good chance to win Hn what Is likely to be one of the most
far-reaching strikes .that ever occurred west of the Mississippi..
It Is learned from an authentic ;
source that the switchmen of lh
Southern Pacific presented a new agree- ;
ment, in which increased w:iki s and
other important concessions were asTi '.l.
to Manager Koehler, of tills city, a few ;
days ago, for signing. That geiitl-man
refused to affix his signature to the doc- j
ument, hut the switchmen do not d-
spalr. The Informant says that the en-
glneers and trainmen will soon follow j
their example. They will act in concert I
with the employes of all the other roads i
of the Northwest, and bv their great ;
strength have the utinoM conildtic c in
being able to win their point. ., '
A labor leader who Is well posted on
movements of this kind but who I
not wish his IdHiitlty disi h-scd. in this
connection, says: !
