THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF
In his leport of the recent disturb
ance at the Branch Leper Hospital,
published in Saturday's Daily Ad
vertiser, said, in speaking lo the
lepers, "he would stay with them to
confer with them and treat with them
as fellow beings and friends and no
one should he drr yyed like a crimi
nal or an animal, hut (hey should
he treated icitt every loviny care."
On the same morning wc an
nounced the fact that ten of the
leper patients had been treated "like
a criminal or an animal" and not
"with every loving care." By a
curious coincidence the Weekly
Advert! cr, published a few hours
after the Bui.uvnx on Saturday, con
tains the following alteration in the
concluding sentence of Mr. Gibson's
speech: "lie said he would stay
with them to confer with them and
treat with them as fellow beings and
friends and no one should lie
dragged about against their voli
tion, but they should be treated
with every loving care."
What did Mr. (Silicon say? The
first account is probably tho
more correct, but, taking into con
sideration, that both speeches were
published in the recognized Gov
ernment organ, we can only conclude
that Mr. Gibson made both the re
marks above quoted one for tho
town subscribers and the other for
the country subscribers of our con
temporary. Mi. Van Gciseu told
us, on Saturday, Unit our account
of the disturbance at Kakauko was
quite correct, only ho was sorry wo
had mentioned that the leper hail
been placed in the cells as he would
"catch h from Mr. Gibson." As
our account was correct, tho lepers
were "treated like criminals or ani
mals" at tho very moment Mr,
Gibson told them they should not
Mr. Gibson also said "no one
should bo dragged about against
their volition." This is tantamout
to saying tlrnt any leper or suspected
leper in tho Kingdom shall nol lie
icinovcil lo Molokni or lo the Iknnoh
Hospital, from liis homo or from the
Directs, against his wish and inclina
tion. We arc pleased at last to sec
an an thon tnth o announcement of
Mr. Gibson's policy of dealing with
the lepers, although it is contrary to
the wishes of the public ami his pre
vious oft-repeated assertions, viz:
"Leave not a leper loose in the
That was Mr. Gibson's nt-
when out of ollicc. Mr.
in oillce, says ''no one
be dragged about against
(heir volition. " (The hingulnr du
ality of the above quoted sentence
is referred lo the President of the
Hoard of Education.)
THE NEW REFINERY.
(5. F. Chronicle.)
Down town merchants concerned
in the sugar business continue lo be
considerably interested in the still
circulating rumors of the contem
plated establishment of a sugar
refinery in opposition lo the Sprockets
establishments. Sir Clans, it will be
remembered, has succce'd in making
contracts for the entire crop grown
on the Sandwich islands during the
past season, with the exception of
that controlled by one Honolulu
factor, llackfeld & Co. This linn
would not assent to his terms, which
wore not only lower prices, but also
a condition that all this sugar must
bo forwarded by Sprockets' Hue of
steamers. The monopolist felt safe
in asking and imposing these terms,
because the previous year's experi
ment of shipping island sugar to
New York and Eastern refineries had
not proved profitable, sothalSpreck-
cls really remained the only buyer in
the Honolulu market. It was this
state of affairs which finally em
boldened him to declare that he did
not want Hackfeld's sugar at all.
The firm was as independent as the
Sandwich island knight and sold its
sugar to St. Louis refineries. It is
now said that Hackfcld & Co., tired
of. being commanded, cajoled and
driven out of their natural market by
Sir Claus, arc endeavoring to enlist
Eastern capital for the purpose of
starling a refinery here, a project
which, notwithstanding the fact tiiat
the Spreckels lelinery is larc enough
to work up the entire product of the
Hawaiian islands, appears very
feasible, for the very simple reason
that Spreckels cannot control the
entire product, Hackfcld &Co. hold
ing nearly one-fourth. As they
would stand on an equal fooling with
Sir Claus in legard to duties, prices
and railroad protection, paid for by
Sir Claus, and as the latter is known
to have his bauds loo full to engage
in a very extended competitive fight,
the project is receiving much consi
deration and encouragement at the
hands of merchants interested in the
sugar trade. But despite very
thorough inquiries by a reporter of
the Chronicle, no positive informa-i
lion in regard to the matter has been
obtained so far. beyond the fact
J that the paitiicr of a Chicago house
has been in the city canvassing tho
situation. It is, however, explained
that this gentleman's visit is con
nected with a plan to utilize the
molasses now going to waste on the
Hawaiian plantations by shipping it
to this city and refining it. It should
be added that when W. II. Dimond
of Williams, Dimond & Co.,. who
arc Hackfcld & Co's agents in this
city, was questioned concerning the
the mailer, he denied all knowledge
thereof, claiming to know nothing of
a Chicago or any other Eastern
house having made an investigation
into the stale of affairs.
The reason that the shipping of
sugar to "New York and Eastern re
fineries was not profitable," was
merely because prices had gone down
(luring the long trip that had to be
made round the Horn. If tho sugars
had been sold at San Francisco, at
tho samo time that they were sold in
New York', the results would have
been about tho same. Eo. D. B.
