LETTER TO THE EDITOR of the Otago Daily Times
11 October 1872
SIR, A statement appeared in the Times of this morning by Mr Allan, which, as it is calculated to mislead, I hope you will kindly allow me to correct.
Mr Allan states that the immigrants who arrived by the Hydaspes supplied only a small part of the demand at the Labour Exchange; that they were all disposed of in a few days; and that the Barracks were now empty.
I believe that the last part of the statement is quite correct, but the first certainly is not. The facts are, that ony about two-thirds of the immigrants went to the Barracks; that only about a third of those who did go there obtained employment at the Labour Exchange; and that several, after remaining a week and seeing no chance of being engaged, left and found lodgings elsewhere.
There are a good number of the Hydaspes immigrants who are willing and anxious to work still unemployed, and to all appearance likely to be so for some time.
I suppose Mr Allan's statement is intended for the furtherance of a scheme which is in process of being carried out, for the purpose of flooding the country with labourers, so that farmers and other employers may have them at any price they please, and as it is likely to induce others to leave home for this country, I, as a working man, in the interest of my fellow labourers, wish the truth to be known.
There cannot be a doubt but that New Zeaoand is a fine country, the resources of which are only beginning to be developed; but it is evident that at present there is not sufficient capital in the country to give employment to those who are in want of it. And under these circumstances I think the Government have begun at the wrong end with their Immigration Scheme. It seems to me that men with a little money, not penniless labourers, are the men that should be induced to come here in the first place
