The San Francisco Coinincrcial
Herald notes that whereas the im
pottations of sugar from the Hawai
ian Islands have heretofore gone
entirety to Sprcekles' refinery, the
crop of 18855, now being marketed,
has to a limited extent been secured
by the new Belcher sugar refinery at
St. Louis. This company is said to
have secured 20,000,000 pounds of
the' sugar, valued at 81,500.000,
which they will receive via the Pacific
Mail Steaniihip line and the Central
and Southern Pacific lailways. This
shipment east from San Francisco
"will furnish tonnage for nearly
forty-five regular freight trains."
Molasses, the chief supply to the
Pacific Coast also being from the
Sandwich Islands, is used mostly in
making vinegar, beer and ale, the
better grades going to jails and hos
pitals. Bakers and confectioners
use but little of it, preferring that
from New Orleans. California sugar
refiners control Pacific Coast mar
kets, yet the quantity of glucose
syrup which comes from the cast and
is "palmed off" as something super
ior, is increasing, although it is "in
fact a poor substitute for the Cali
The foregoing has been clipped
from an American paper. Yo learn
that Messrs. llackfeld & Co., who
were the chief sellers to the St.
Louis refinery, will give this year's
crop to Messrs. Sprockets. Tin
linns still withholding their crops
from the latter are Messrs. Iloff
schlacgcr & Co., Messrs. Orinbauin
& Co., Messrs. J. T. AVaterhouse &
Co. and Messrs. C. Afong & Co.
It is said that none of this year's
crop has been contracted for outside,
of Messrs. Spreckels' operations.
The effect upon the market of send
ing the raw product to the Fast will
he immaterial, but that upon the
treaty may still be said to be pro
blematical. At first it was thought
t that Eastern shipments would tend
to strengthen the treaty, as neutral
izing whatever opposition to it might
have originated in the jealousy of
Kastern refiners. However, the ap
pearance of the raw product in the
Fast seems to have raised as much
opposition from the Southern plant-
ing interest as it may have allayed
f among the Lnstcrn refiners.
A newspnper that would have
nothing but praise for everybody
anybody liked, and blame for every
body anybody disliked, would be a
newspaper that everybody except
anybody would despise.
It seems the Chinese aic allowed
to enter this country unrestrictedly
in spite, of lcgulalions to the con
trary. No less than a bundled and
twenty-nine have landed within it
month by three vessel". Besides
the evils the regulations were de
signed to prevent, this winking at
the law must have a demoralizing
Our large banana cxpoit is threat
ened with home competition in tho
California maikct. A paragraph in
the Attn California reads as fol
lows : " In Los Angeles count' the
young banana trees are growing
finely, and in some of the sheltered
valleys thcie will bo quite a large
crop of fruit this year. A few speci
mens of the ripe fruit have been
maikctcd and arc said to compare
well with the impoitcd aiticle. It
is evident that the list of California
fruit products is about to receive a
notable addition." This should sti
mulate thought and action among us
here in the direction of increasing
the number of domestic industries.
It also emphasizes our suggestion of
a few days ago that this country
should keep an eye to the extension
of its market for all products.
Apparently the Government has
blundered in issuing the, notice fix
ing September 550th as the latest
date when it would redeem "ilver
coin other than Hawaiian and
American at the Treasury. The
Currency Act makes such coin legal
tender for the payment of debts
and taxes up to December 1st. The
Advertiser says it is probable that a
new notice will be issued, extending
the time for redemption of the
foreign coin to November 550th. It
is time the notice was out, as mer
chants have determined to receive
the coin only till September .10th,
and some refuse it now. If credi
tors are obliged to take it at its
nominal value, as the law provides,
until December 1st, it will be a
swindle upon them unless the Gov
ernment make it redeemable up to
An analysis of the English spoken
in the British Parliament has been
contributed to the Pall Mall Ga
zette. Notwithstanding that Mr.
Gladstone is one of the most classi
cal scholais of the age, his speeches
contain seventy percent of Saxon,
the remainder of his words being
derived, thiitecn percent from Latin,
an equal amount from French and
four percent from other sources.
Sir Stafford Noi thcote speaks seventy
percent of Saxon ; Sir William Har
couit, one of the most acceptable
oiators of the House, seventy-four;
Mr. .John Bright, seventy-four, and
Lord Randolph Churchill, seventy-
two percent. Summing up the
analyst says, "Taking the words
derived from the French as being
oiiginally Latin, it may be said that
of the language used in the House
of Commons tlnee-fourths comes
from the Saxon and onc-fouith from
the Latin." This is a fresh proof
that the simplest language is the
A " HONOLULU LETTER " BY ANTI
SHAMUS. When wandering, the other day,
on that great desert of printed
pedantry, called the Saturday Press,
.something kicking up a tremendous
dust on the hoiizon hove insight,
evidently by tho absurd shindy a
literary quack, and most probably a
shallow-patcd pedagogue, having all
his own way like a bull in a china
shop. I, a poor untutored Arab and
an occasional depredator of words
and a pervciler of the Queen's
English, was greatly alarmed by the
dust and shindy, and felt a sudden
impulse to bolt without my breeches.
Hut a momentary glance, made
"palpable to my vision" that it
was only dust and shindy, and 1
maikcd the offender for indiscrimi
Be it understood, a plundering
Arab and a blundering Pedant arc
the alkali and acid of literary com
position, tho dog and cat of mental
discrepancy, the negative nnd posi
tive of fiddlo-faddle, the zenith and
nadir of tho . arc intellectual, the
Antishaintis and Ionia of the Bulle
tin and the Press. And when Anll
shauius, accustomed all his life to
make use of words for the expression
of thoughts and to employ logic to
test tho fitness of words, and then
only with strict economy, discovers
Ionia playing the part of a reckless
spend-thrift lavishing the precious
lieasuic on the trifles of sewing
circles, he feels an irrepressible desire
to grin and distort his visage. But
when, further on, the Arab beholds
the Pedant floundering in the mazes
of "premise," "proposition," "con
elusion," and "syllogism,'' "face
tious citizens and serious school
boys," " rules of composition," and
"rhetorical construction," taking
his first step into a valley of tears by
confessing that he " writes the Eng
lish language but indifferently well,"
and the second by slating that ho
" dare not set himself up as a critic,"
the Arab is seized with a pious
yearning to rise up, slay and
Now, it is conspicuous to the
"vision" of an "indifferent"
English scholar that Ioma wisely
disclaims capability to write English
other than "indifferently well,"
and that he is within the limits of
truth when he acknowledges his in
competence " as a critic;" but it is
not so "palpable" to tho same
"vision" that he is " able to point
out those grosser blunders such as
the way-faring man though a fool
may find in the editorials of the
Bulletin's every issue;" for it is a
fact, that the greater part of what
he indicates as "grosser blunders"
are not blunders at all; or, if
blunders, they are blunders which fre
quently occur in the published writ
ings of such literary tyros as Scott,
Buckle, Sullivan, Arnold, nnd many
others, and arc defended by such
ignorant critics as Crombcy, Morell,
Cornwcll, and Irwin. But a man
who cannot understand how a fact
can be palpable to the vision is
scarccby the pioper person to distin
guish blunders from correct English,
although ho may quite likely decline
acknowledgment of any greater
authority than himself.
My " vision" is not very strong;
in fact, I have to use spectacles to
read Ionia's letters; but I don't need
spectacles to see that he has fully
established the right to adopt the
words of Dogberry, " Write me
down an ass." This is a palpable
fact; it is, indeed. Ioma has un
doubtedly written some nice things,
perfectly suited to the mental cali
bre of society -journal leaders, but
I would advise him never again to
enter upon a subject which is clearly
beyond the scope of his knowledge,
and go wandering into the realms of
language, so full of devious paths
fatal to the exit of the uninitiated.
The "logos" or spiritual elixir of
thought, reduced by metrical solu
tion to a choice form of words, is in
effect a trivial manifestation, con
fined chiefly to a few old skulls
chaigcd with brains, and which res
pectable people like Ioma, who ob
serve the fashions and things of
equal importance, should avoid as
bad compnn', low and unprofitable.
Of course, the law does not compel
his acceptance of this gratuitous
advice, and he may, if he so desire,
still continue to exhibit his "ignor
ance" and " egotism," and keep on
making "himself ridiculous," and
still be "tolerated" by a good
natured people, without fear of
being expelled with horror and some
danger of personal violence, as would
be the case in a less tolerant com
munity. Honolulu, Sep. 22nd, 1884.
A very pleasant reception was
given last evening at the Chinese
church, by tho members of the con
gregation to Mr. and Mrs. Frank
Damon, Rev. Dr. and Mrs. Damon,
who arrived from China by the Ala
meda. The church was tastily
decorated with palm leaves and
tlowers, and over tho platform wero
the words "Welcome" and "Aloha."
The place was completely filled with
Chinese, who presented a very neat
and attractive appearance. Wo also
noticed present, His Honor the Chief
Justice and Mrs. Judd, Judge and
Mrs. McCulIy, Mr. and Mrs. Thco.
II. Davies, Dr. and Mrs. C. M.
Hyde, Mr. W. W. Hall and many
others. The proceedings opened
with the singing of a hymn, after
which prayer was offered by Dr.
Hyde. Mr. Goo Kim then made a
few remarks in Chinese, introducing
Mr. Frank Damon. The latter
gentleman spoke in Chinese and was
listened to with rapt attention. He
afterwards addressed the audience
in English, remarking he had re
turned with, increased vigor to re
sume his work, and with his wife's
assistance looked forward to the
highest results. The Chief Justice,
Mr. Davies, Dr. Damon, Dr. I lytic
and Mr. To Ting Yu, the new
teacher, also addressed the meeting.
After singing the doxology, the large
audience adjourned to the vestry
below. Mrs. Frank Damon sang a
hymn in Chinese, after which ice
cream and cake were passed round,
and soon afterwards this very pleas
ant and successful reception was
brought to a close.
