Letters from F. M. Hatch nud
United States Senator Mitchell,
received by Governor Carter Wed
nesday, show that both had the
utmost confidence iu the passage of
'the bill (o ratify Hawaii's county
! act, and indicate strongly that re
'ports of opposition iu Honolulu kill
ed the bill's chances of passage iu the
last session. Both House and Sen
ate committee favored it, and
Mitchell states that he expected it
to pass in December, while Hatch
says definitely that reports of oppo
sition iu Honolulu stopped the bill.
Honolulu's "town meeting" move
ment made Congress hesitate.
Hatch's letter is as lollows:
"In record to the ratification of
the County act I beg to say: As
desired by you I laid the matter
before our Delegate, Mr. Kalania-
naole, who promptly tntrouuceU- a
bill in Congress, being the bill
drafted by Mr. Brcckons. A simi-

For Sale by HILO DRUOJMMPANYduced , thc Senate by Foraker
"" The Senate committee has reported
' favorably on the bill and thc matter
may be brought up for action before
the Senate at any time. The bill
in thc House was referred to the
Committee on Territories. That
committee has been giving the
matter very careful attention. Af
ter several hearings the matter was
referred to a sub-committee iu order
that thc county act might be care
fully scanned iu order to sec, if by
chnncc it contained any matter
contrury to the genetal scope of the
Organic act. This committee is also
favorable and is ready to report the
bill at any time. It is absolutely
impossible to obtain consideration
in the House before the Christmas
recess. The matter can be moved
on, however, at any time after the
reassembling of Congress in Janu
ary. "The bill, iu fact, was brought
up before the Senate by Senator
Mitchell, who has taken charge' of
it at Senator Foraker's request. It
might have passed then had not
Senator Hale and Senator Bacon
objected to further consideration at
that time on the ground that they
were informed that there was oppo
sition to the bill iu Honolulu.
"I leave Washington today and
have placed this matter in the
hands of our Delegate. He has
taken thc matter up from the start
with much earnestness and if he le
ceives proper support from home
should have no difficulty iu obtain
ing passage of the bill. Respect
"F. M. HATCH."
Senator Mitchell wrote as fol
lows regarding the chances of the
bill, on December 18:
"On yesterday I was authorized
to report favorably the bill ratify
ing the act of the recent legislature
in your Territory in providing for
county municipalities, and I expect
to get it through the Senate today
or tomorrow, belore we take a recess."

An interesting review of sirgar
possibilities for this year is given in
a recent issue ot tne jncw yotk
Sun. The article isis follows:
"Sharps who figure out the capa
cities of nations tell us that thc
American stomach will call for
2,400,000 tons of sugar in the
coming year. This is an increase
of 150,000 to 200,000 tons over the
consumption of this year.
"Cane sugar from Porto Rico,
Louisiana, Hawaii nud the beet
sugar product of thc United States
will provide 900,000 tons produced
within our customs territory. Of
the estimated Cuban crop of 975,000
tons probably 900,000 tons will be
shipped to the United States, be
cause the differential of 20 per cent
of the duty provided for in thc reci
procity treaty, will bring that crop
to this market.
For thc remaining 600,000 tons
we must go elsewhere, cither to thc
cane sugar product of Java or thc
beet sugar countries, Germany.
France and Austria. Under thc
stimulus of bounty, Germany now
produces three times the quantity
of sugar that she consumes, France
twice her home supply and Austria
and Russia a large surplus. This
excess production is marketed in
England, Norway, Sweden, Spain,
and thc colonies held by those
countries which produce little
"While American labor costs
twice as much as foreign labor, I
don't see how we are going to coin
pete with the beet sugar countries,"
said a sugar baron yesterday.
"That is why, with a protective
tariff of $33 a ton on sugar, we still
go abroad for most of ours. I don't
know who will get the benefit of
the reduction iu duty on the Cuban
crop, but I fancy it will not make
sugar any cheaper to the fellow
who buys ten pounds at a lime
from the corner grocery. The
Cuban plantation owner will prob
ably get the difference, and . it is
understood that the American
Sugar Refining Company is the
largest owner there.
"Up to about nine years ago,
producing beet sugar in Germany
was the same as owning a goldmine.
The Government paid a bounty of
one-fourth of a cent a pound. It
established bonded warehouses right
at the factories so that when a man
had a hundred barrels of sugar
ready for the market he just put it
in the warehouse, got a certificate
from the Government and turned
(he certificate into the bank, bor
rowing money on it.
"By this system the man with a
small capital was able to do a tre
mendous business on Government
credit. The sugar makers got rich
so quickly that the Government
abolished the warehouse certificate,
though continuing the bounty.
Whenever a German ships a hun
dred pounds of sugar abroad he gets
25 cents bounty. To offset this,
our tariff provided that sugar from
bounty-paying countries should pay
that bounty as well as the regular
"Russia also pays a bounty, but
