New group of Japanese arrive, 1895.

New Laborers

This past Thursday, the German steamer Independent entered Kou, 17 days from Kobe, Japan, and it is docked at the pier of C. Brewer and Co. [Burua Ma]. It left Kobe on the 26th of February and sailed for this harbor without visiting Yokohama. It brought 761 laborers under contract, and they are being quarantined at Kahakaaulana for perhaps three or four days. There are no sick aboard the ship.
