La Croix and Price Fishback (2000) found that European and American workers on sugar cane plantations received job-specific wage premiums compared to Asian workers, and that the premium for unskilled American workers decreased by a third between 1901 and 1915 and by 50% or more for European workers over the same period. While similar wage gaps disappeared during this period on the west coast of the United States, Hawaiian plantations were able to maintain some of the wage gap because they were constantly finding new low-wage immigrants working in the Hawaiian market. However, immigrant workers from Asia failed to climb many rungs on the labor ladder in Hawaiian sugar cane plantations, which was a major factor in labor unrest in the sugar industry. Edward Beechert (1985) concluded that large-scale strikes on sugar cane plantations in 1909 and 1920 improved the well-being of sugar cane plantation workers, but did not lead to union recognition. Between 1900 and 1941, many sugar workers responded to the limited prospects for advancement and wages on the sugar cane plantation by leaving the plantations to work in Hawaii`s growing urban areas. In the 1820s, the American whaling industry established itself in the Hawaiian Islands, as more whales were found in the Pacific than in the Atlantic. However, by the 1860s, the whaling industry as a whole was in decline, meaning there were fewer U.S. ships exploring the oceans in search of whales and fewer U.S. whaler deposits in Hawaii. The decline of the U.S. whaling industry in the Hawaiian Islands coincided with the discovery of oil in Pennsylvania and the beginning of the first oil era. In the second half of the nineteenth century, thanks to the invention of steel during the Second Industrial Revolution (1870-1914), whale bones were no longer as widely used in industrial products (such as corsets).

Therefore, the conclusion I have reached and which I consider to be the obvious conclusion that can be drawn from the terms of the interpolated article is that it is not intended and is not intended to invade or diminish in any way the autonomous jurisdiction of Hawaii while granting the United States the exclusive rights of use set forth therein at Pearl Harbor for the sole purposes set out in the article. and in addition, that Article II of the Convention and the privilege conferred by it be abrogated and determined for the extinction of the Treaty of 1875 under the conditions set forth in that Convention.

The treaty granted free access to the U.S. market for sugar and other products grown in the Kingdom of Hawaii beginning in September 1876. In turn, the United States gained land in the area known as Pu`u Loa for what became known as the Pearl Harbor Naval Base. The contract led to significant American investments in sugar cane plantations in Hawaii. The islands were uninhabited until about 400 AD, when Polynesian travelers sailing in double-hulled canoes arrived from the Marquesas Islands (Kirch, 1985, p.

68). As the settlers had no written language and virtually no contact with the Western world until 1778, our knowledge of Hawaii`s prehistory comes mainly from archaeological research and oral legends. A relatively egalitarian society and subsistence economy were associated with high population growth rates until around 1100, when sustained population growth led to a significant expansion of settlement and culture areas. Perhaps under the pressure of increasing scarcity of resources, a new, more hierarchical social structure emerged, characterized by leaders (ali`i) and submissive citizens (maka`ainana). In the two centuries leading up to Western contact, there is considerable evidence that ruling leaders (ali`i nui) competed to expand their lands through conquest, leading to cycles of expansion and retreat. The only excuse for including such an article in such a treaty would be its relevance to the privileges provided for in the original Convention of 1875, to which it is complementary and whose duration is supposed to limit and define the duration. After the war, Hawaii`s economy stagnated when demobilized military personnel left Hawaii for the American mainland. .
