Archibald F. Gilfillan is dead.
It is seldom that this community
lias been called to mourn the loss
of a member under circumstances
equally peculiar and painful. Af
ter many weeks of anxiety caused
by the absence of any news from
the esteemed citizen, Inst week
brought the welcome tidings that
he was alive among relatives in
Philadelphia. It was true. Now,
however, on this beautiful New
Year's morning comes the sad in
telligence that, a few hours before
the occasion here for rejoicing over
his safety, "Archie" Gilfillan had
met death by accident.
A Philadelphia dispatch of De
cember 23 tells the story thus:
"Archibald 1 Gilfillan traveled
more than 6000 miles to visit rela
tives in this, his native city, after
an absence of thirty-seven yeats,
only to meet death as the result of
an accident. Mr. Gilfillan was
thrown from a trolley car Sunday
night at Thirty-sixth street and
Woodland avenue. I lis skull was
fractured and he died at the Uni
versity Hospital today without re
"At the time he was injured;
Mr. Gilfillan was returning to the
Lafayette Hotel from church in a
Darby car with Mrs. R. II. Miller,
a cousin, who lives at 3629 Ludlow
street. When the car was stopped
he started to alight, but before he
got entirely off, the car started with
a jerk and he was thrown, his head
striking the pavement. The body
has been removed to Mrs. Miller's
The late Mr. Gilfillati's parents
were residents of Honolulu for
more than the Hie of a generation.
They were highly esteemed Scottish
bodies. Archibald Gilfillan was a
machinist of great skill and, as if
by curious fatality, when still a
strong though elderly man, his life
was cut short by accident as his
stalwart son's was doomed to be.
The elder Gilfillan was making re
pairs to a sugar mill iu the Hilo
district, a few years ago, when he
fell and sustained injuries to the
spine which resulted in a painful
and lingering death. After her
husband's death Mrs. Gilfillan paid
a visit to her relatives iu Philadel
phia, from which she returned in
apparently robust health but it was
not long before she also passed
away. She died iu San Francisco.
Archibald F. Gilfillan left Hono
lulu some months ago for a vaca
tion tour on the Mainland, with a
possible chance of extending his
journey to visit the home of his an
cestors in Scotland. He attended
the Triennial Conclave of Knights
Templars in Louisville with cre
dentials from the local Command
ery, he being one of the most ac
tive and prominent members of the
Masonic fraternity in Honolulu.
Then he went to Philadelphia from
whence he sent word a good many
weeks ago that lie was coming
home forthwith. Henry II. Wil
liams of Honolulu waited for him
iu San Francisco, but hearing noth
ing more from him returned by
himself. When mail after mail ar
rived without any further intelli
gence from Mr. Gilfillan, his maliy
friends here became anxious that
something untoward might have
happened to him. Their anxiety
had reached the degree of alarm
when, as already stated, news came
last week that he' was amongst his
friends iu Philadelphia.
The lamented citizen had for
many years up to his deatli been

Talks With President on Ucet Sugar
Washington, Dec. 21 Henry T.
Oxnnrd, president of the American
Beet Sugar Association, had an ex
tended conference with the Presi
dent today regarding the proposed
reduction of the tariff on Cuban
sugar. He urged that such reduc
tion, if made, should be only after
an exhaustive inquiry into the sub
ject, in order not to injure Ameri
can interests. Jn his own opinion
a bounty to producers of raw sugar
in the islands would be much more
effective for the relief of Cuba than
the reduction of the tariff.
Oxuard suggested that the Fies
idcut appoint n commission to in
vestigate the entire subject, and
asked that representatives of the
beet sugar manufacturers, Louisi
ana planters, the sugar refiners and
Cuban planters be appointed, be
sides n member of the Senate Fi
nance Committee and the House
Ways and Means Committee. He
thought the commission should in
vestigate two questions: (First, if

A cable to the Chicago Record
Herald from London says: War
has been declared upon the women
journalists of London by the male
writers for the metropolitan daily
press. The entire writing staff of
men on the London Chronicle have
united in a demand upon the pro
prietors of that paper to reduce the
pay of the women writers one-third.
This demand was granted today
and the pay of the women cut accordingly.
The movement is spreading. It
is said that the men writers on
other big newspapers are contemp
lating the demand for absolute dis
missal of the women. Many of the
women arc Americans.
Editors have found out that
bright .young American women can
give splendid service as special
writers, and their number employed
on the daily press has been steadily
increasing. A state of panic seems
