fur Trial on Appeal In
re nit' Court.
Honolulu, Nov. 4. When the
Territorial Supreme Court sat this
morning, with Justices Frcar, Gnl
hraith and Perry on the bench, the
calendar was called and the case of
Dole et al. vs. Cooper et til. involv
ing the constitutionality of a por
tion of the County Act, was an
swered as ready and will probably
come up this week. The matter
contested concerns the Territorial
Board of Public Institutions and
originated in the Governor, Secre-
1 tary, Treasurer, Auditor, Superiu-
icuuciii ui i-uuuc instructions, anu
the Attorney Gcue'nl, ns the Board
of Public Institutions, demanding
) that Superintendent of Public Works
' II. E. Cooper turn over to the Board
the possession of certain institutions
I coming under the Public Works
Cooper refused to recognize the
isocalled Board of Public Institutions
and won the case in Judge Gear's
court, those comprising the Board
appealing the matter to the Supreme
It is generally understood that
the unconstitutionality of the chap
ter of the County Act, relative to
this Hoard, if it is finally determined
to be unconstitutional, inasmuch
as this chapter in no way affects the
rest of the Act, will not affect the
constitutionality of the law as a
Tlie County Act provided that
immediately after the passage of the
Act the Territorial Board of Public
Institutions should organize and
that it then should take control of
"all matters relative to harbors,
wharves, pilots and towage and of
all property used in connection
therewith. It shall be the duty of
the Superintendent of Public Works
to deliver the possession of such
property to the Territorial Board of
High Kulhwiy Speeds.
In records of various fast railway
runs throughout the country it has
been commonly stated that a speed
of one hundred miles an hour has
been reached, or even exceeded.
A test on the Pennsylvania road
not long ago, as reported in The
Railway and Engineering Review
(Chicago, Septembers), indicates
that such speed is difficult to at
tain with a commercial locomotive.
Says that paper:
"One of the fastest engines of
that company, under the most fa
vorable ciucumstances, was not able
to reach that rate even when run
ning light. The trial was made on
a twenty-five mile stretch of track
in very fine condition, with a slight
ly descending grade, at the foot of
which was a mile of absolutely
level track equipped with electric
circuit-breakers connected with a
recording apparatus spaced by steel
tape measurements. The chrono
giaph used was one of great accu
racy, but under such conditions the
best that could be done over that
mile was at the rate of os.i miles
per hour. The trial started with
eight coaches and with each sue- j
ceeding failure to obtain the de
sired record they were dropped one
by one until finally the engine a
lone was used, and the above rate
was the best readied with several
trials. It may well be doubted,
therefore, whether the hundred-mile-au-hour
rate has ever been at
tained except in extremely rare in-
stances, if at all. The liability of I
inaccuracy 111 estimating speeds
with stop-watches, observation of
mile-posts, etc., is well understood.
To Protect Men.
In 1779 the English Parliament
it always protects its men con
sidered this bill: "All women,
without distinction as to age or
rank, maidens as well as widows,
1 who should deceive the male sub
jects of His Majesty and lead them
into marriage by means of paint,
salve, beauty water, false teeth,
ialse hair, Spanish wool, corsets or
padded hips, should be punished ',
I under the provisions of the law ,
I . ., , , .!
I against sorcery, and the marriage ,
shall be declared null."
I The bill did not pass. New York

Halifax (N. S.), Oct. 28. The
declaration that present retailors
between Canada and Great Britain
cannot exist much longer was made
today by the Halifax Chronicle, the
leading newspaper supporter in the
maritime provinces of the Liberal
party. In an unusually outspoken
editorial on the Alaskan boundary
award the Chronicle expresses what
it claims to be the unanimous dis
satisfaction of Canadians nt the ac
tion of the British Government in
The paper says: "This Alaska
episode has made it clear that our
existing relations to the empire
cannot be continued much longer,
We arc even now at the parting o
the ways. Our subordinate posi-
tiou has been so clearly and so hit-
mihatiugly revealed that it must
speedily become unbearable."
The Chronicle ndds that there
are now only two courses open for
Canada complete legislative inde-
pendence within the empire, ack-
nowieoging tue sovereignty ol tile
King of Kngland alone or the
rw.i.j, ui iiiiiu .tiont, or uiL
Status of an independent nation.
The paper SajS there is much to
commend the latter step in particu
lar, because it would free Canada
from the danger of being ever em
broiled with the United States on
account of its Kuropean connection,
and at the same time would secure
for the dominion the benefit of the
protection of the Monroe doctrine.
Suirnr in Fruuce.
United States Consul I lay lies of
Rouen, France, reports under date
of September 1:
Beginning to-day in France,
sugar which has heretofore sold for
1. 10 francs (21.23CCMS) per kilo
gram (2.2046 pounds) will be sold
for 79 to 75 centiues (13.51 to 14.
475 cents). This reductioti is due
to a lowering of the internal reven
ue tax from 64 francs to 25 francs
(I2.352 to $4,825) per 100 kilo
grams (220.4Q pounds), a result of
tllP TtrtlCQptu pntlfurnnnn ...liAm!.
the agreement was made by France,
Germany, Austria, Huncarv. Bel -
gium, Spain, England, Italy, the
Netherlands and Sweeden to sup
press all direct and indirect premi
ums accorded sugar exporters, thus
reducing by nearly $10,000,000 the
annual income of the French sugar
Spain and Italy have built sugar
factories which will probably sup
ply their people in the near future.
What then will be done with the
surplus production of France, Ger
many and Austria? The output of
France is nearly double that of its
consumption, and the Government
has been busy since the object of
the Brussels sugar coference threat
ened to become a reality to devise
some way of disposing of this excess.
The simplest way seemed the best
to lower the internal revenue tax
that the people might buy sugar
cheaper and thus buy more, on the

nee increases the htivini of stnmtw.
England furnishes an example of
this. In 1848 in that country the
internal tax amounted to $5.95 per
100 pounds, at which time the con
sumption per inhabitant was 25 lbs.
Because of successive reductions of
this tax, until 1874, when all the
tax was removed, the consumption
of sugar doubled. To-day it has
quadrupled, being 100 pounds per
head. France does not hope for
I such results as this, as an Knglish
I man drinks sweetened tea much
after the manner that n Frenchman
dt inks wine; but it is certain that
home consumption will consider
ably increase. In Gers, a part of
j southwestern France, purely agri
cultural, and wherein there are no
I fiscal taxes, the individual con
sumption is exactly the same as in
I Switzerland 55 pounds per iu
