rraffic In Human Betngrs at the Sand
Honolulu (H. I.) Special tn San Franciico Ex
It may sound strange* to your readers to
earn that in thus kingdom of advanced
draught, iu tills realm where humanity and
•xtreine civilization go hand in hand, where
he rulor over all is continually proclaiming
lie fellowship of man—that the relic of a
Mi'harous time, the slave trade, has again
aeon inaugurated. And yet such is the case,
md no one has yet heard any earnest pro
test entered by his majesty the King, or
nv of his intelligent Cabinet.
4nd stranger than this is the fact that
the principal in this degrading business is
m e of the old missionary people, a man
w hose teachings surely do not conform to
the business in which he is engaged.
It will not do for the people who are now
smployed in “kidnapping,“man stealing”
and ••black birding,” as it is called here, to
cive their occupation the mild sounding
aameof “labor recruiting” for all who
know anything of their late exploit are
aware of the tact that their victnns were
snatched boldly from their island homes in
the New Hebrides without consulting their
wishes in the slightest particular.
The character of the man who was placed
in command of the expedition was enough
of itself to indicate the nature of the enter
prise. Capt. Phillips, of the Hrwaiian brig
Allie Rowe, which arrived in port on March
13 with 125 poor savages from the South
seas is a man who has already made his
record, and it is putting it mildly to say that
it is a decidedly unsavory one. This is by
no means his first adventure in the slave
trade, for a number of years ago he was en
gaged’ in the same business when ho was
captured with his schooner load of human
chattels by an English gunboat, and but for
tbe fact that he was able to make his escape,
would, in all probability, not now be plow
ing the raging main like the bold buccaneer
that he is.
THE MISSING OF THE BRIG.
The Allie Rowe was fitted out from Hono
lulu for a trip to the South Sea Islands, and
sailed in September, 1886. Her mission was
not stated at that time, although it was gen
erally understood that she was going on a
“labor recruiting expedition.” Her log shows
that on Oct. 39 die arrived at the New
Hebrides group, and then tersely continues:
“Cruised around the islands and took on
board 125 nativos—los men and 20 women.”
When we consider the character of the
man Phillips and his past experience in
similar expeditions, it is not hard to under
stand how he induced the simple
minded savages to come on board.
At any rate, he put to sea with his
living freight and arrived in this
harbor with the number above given.
Whether any died on the voyage—and con
sidering the quarters into which they were
huddled it would be surprising if some had
not—it is not stated. What treatment the
poor, helpless throng received is not de
scribed, for there was hardly one among
them who could understand the language of
his captors, and besides, the most of them
were sent away to the purchaser the day
after they arrived. There is hardly any op
portunity afforded for concealment ot the
•price for which these hapless savages were
sold, and the price paid for them is under
stood to have been $lO5 per head.
They were described as the most “likely
lot" that ever landed on the beach, and
though they were not put upon the block
and bartered off as in the days gone by, yet
they were forced to submit to as close a
scrutiny as was wont to prevail when the
slave market was a recognized institution in
your own land.
They were sent to the plantation at Hama
kuapoko and Pai, and the owners of these
tracts can not be unaware of the fact that
they have taken part in an illegal traffic.
They must know that they are acting con
trary to public policy, to the laws of the na
tions controlling the southern seas, and that
they have done all this after being notified
in writing by the Immigration Commission
ers that an application to recruit labor as
proposed by the owners of the Allie Rowe
would not be granted.
REDUCED TO SLAVERY.
And stranger than all, no one seems to
understand tire nature of the alleged con
tract which these poor people have been
forcAd into—for it is claimed that a contract
does exist, though the parties of the second
part seem to know nothing whatever of its
existence. There is no doubt in the world
that they have been reduced to involuntary
servitude for a long term of years, and less
doubt that when from continued labor and
bad treatment they have outlived their use
fulness they will be cast aside to shift for
themselves, perchance to lie down by the
vravside and starve to death.
There is no need for mincing matters, for
too Hawaiian government cannot afford to
shut its eyes to the inauguration of this
raost cruel traffic. If it would clear itself
of the shame which is soon to be cast upon
it, it must act quickly and intelligently,
Its duty is plain.
These people should be gathered up and
sent back from whence they came, and it
need not deplete the treasury, either, for
every dollar of the expense or transporta
tion should be wrung from the pockets of
the men who would coin money from the
tears and agony of the poor savages they
have torn away from their homos.
THE SOUTH SEA AND YANKEEDOM.
Princely Tahitian Beauties in San
Front the San Francieco Examiner.
There are two noted Tahitian beauties re
siding in this city at present, one being the
Princess Moetia, now Mrs. Dorronce At
water, and the other is Mrs. John Boyd, a
wealthy young widow, whose husband, who
died some time ago, was for many years a
njerchant at Papeete, the capital of the So
Mrs. Atwater, wife of the American Con
sul at Tahiti, is a millionairess, or at least
would be ranked so in the South Sea
Islands, where her wealth, even before her
marriage, was considered a big bonanza.
Her husband’s bank account in one or two
w the banks of this city is a substantial one,
*ud, through interest” and additional de
posits, continues to increase rapidly. Consul
Atwater made a lucky deal when he mar
ried the charming Princess Moetia, and
he should have the credit of winning her
bom the chivalry, par excellence, of Tahiti,
there is a romance connected with their
Marriage which has never been made public,
consul Atwater was at bis official post six
nionths before he ever spoke a word to the
fair Princess, and this though she lived in
1 )*; house to him. Glances and flashes
or the eye were now and then exchanged,
hut the Consul remained cold and coy. The
met is, he feared her, for he had in his mind
tne sod fate of one of his consular predeces
sors. who, for love of Moetia—a love not re
ciprocated—lost his reason and afterward
became an inmate of an asylum in one of
mo hastern States. This was the story cur
rent at the time at Tahiti, and believed to
r ? , tru ®' But fate decreed that the coy Con
sul mid the young Princess should meet,
ana meet they did. That ended the coyness

“Borod and enraptured mortals. The eourt

. .Mrs. Atwater is a flue typo of the
chief eases of Polynesia, and bring of
Jewish descent on the father’s side, she has
a certain rich oriental tinge in the color of
her face, and her eyes, dark and languish
ing, seem somewhat Circassian. They are
such eyes as a Tasso or a Petrarch, a Ilyron
or a Swinburne might wildly rave about.
She is a lady of commanding presence, and
her hands and feet are aristocratically small.
Mrs. Atwater is a very intelligent woman,
and in addition to her native language
speaks French and English fluently. She is
now in the prime of life. Her accomplish
ments, polished manners, and wealth make
her a welcome visitor at the homes of some
of our best citizens. When possible she is
the inseparable companion of Mrs. Bovd,
and the warmest and truest friendship has
existed between them.
Mrs. John Boyd is in many respects the
very opposite. She is a perfect blonde, lias
blue eyes and a golden wealth of hah-. She
was considered the handsomest lady at
Tahiti, and retains her beauty without
those artificial aids to which some of Eve's
witching daughters resort, either to gratify
their natural vanity or bewitch and fasci
nate the unwary and unsophisticated sons of
Adam. Mrs, Boyd, like Mrs. Atwater is in
the prime of life, is of more than medium
height, and possesses a well
rounded and graceful form. To
see both ladies together is in
deed a contrast. Mrs. Atwater might be
said to represent Night in its mysterious yet
beautiful darkness, while Mrs.” Boyd repre
sents Aurora or the Dawning Day, typical
of light and loveliness. The latter named
lrdy, like the Princess, has reminiscences
somewhat romantic. During a trip to
Australia by her deceased husband, he, by
the merest accident, became acquainted
with his destined wife. He ardently wooed
her, and she, loving him in return, gave
him her hand and heart. It was a struggle
to give up family and friends and retire as
a bride to a lone island in the Pacific, but
love triumphed over all.
