NUMBER OF CHINESE IN HAWAII NEI.
Washington, Oct. 8. There was a report received by Commissioner Yerkes pertaining to the number of Chinese who registered their names as residing in the Hawaiian Islands, which was done last June. The total of Chinese who registered were 28,925, and this was an increase of 6000 in the Chinese population from the last census. The number of Chinese on Oahu is 17,482, and 3,907 of them are living in the town of Honolulu, and being that there were many who travelled there to register their names, it is not possible to ascertain the correct number of Chinese residing in that town. For the other islands, these are the number of Chinese known:
Hawaii, 4,644; Kauai, 3,418; Maui, 3,348, and Molokai, 33.
