A BETTER POLITICAL ATMOS
PHERE. Not only are our trade and com
merce in a condition approaching
stagnation, according, to the testi
mony of business people, but politi
cal affairs appear to be in a similar
stale. The latter fact is not to be
regretted. The country has had
rather too much of politics. A rest
will do it no harm. Indeed, it is
the very thing calculated to benefit
us at home and abroad. The Su
preme Court has decided the veto
question in a way that some people
contended would bring dire conse
quences upon tho people and the
country, and yet no eruption has
occurred, but the machinery of Gov
ernment seems to work as smoothly
and quietly as before, and there is
no valid reason why it should not so
continue. People under excitement
are apt to say and do foolish things,
which in their cool and reflective
moments they are unwilling to sus
tain, if they arc not ashamed of
them. The community has passed
through a season of excitement, dur
ing which feeling and talk frequently
ran high, sometimes completely
overtopping sense and reason ; but
wo appear to have now reached the
reflective stage, which is decidedly
more grateful to the feelings and
consonant with the wishes of peace
able and conservative people. More
over, this is a condition favorable to
the effecting of reforms and im
provements, and therefore to bo
bailed with welcome.
Editor Botlktis: Please allow
mc to suggest "Another way how to
reach our Young Men." Those who
infringe on the laws of the country
can and will be reached by our
courts of justice and punished for
their misdeeds; those who commit
minor errors will be reached and
punisbed by the consequences of
their own follies ; for instance, those
who cannot control their appetites
for strong drink, opium, tobacco,
or lust will be reached and punished
by loss of health, of reputation, or
by financial difllcultics, and those of
the number who have any good left
in their composition will profit bj'
their sufferings and will be redeem
ed in consequence thereof more
earnestly and truly, than by preach
ing to them ever so much in or out
of church, for it is a thankless job,
at best, for strangers, to try and
teach grown up j'oung men, what
their parents or guardians neglected
to teach them as children.
So my candid opinion is this: let
J.ho young men take care of them
selves, let each mind his own busi
ness, let everybody turn his or her
attention their and their families'
own affairs and faults, for nobody
is without the latter, and we arc
too apt to sec the splinter in our
neighbor's eye and, at the same
timo, overlook the crowbar in our
own, then everybody will probably
have enough to do without bother
ing himself about the spiritual wel
fare of every stranger or mere ac
quaintance ;and especially let those
who have children of their own,
whether they are boys or girls, train
them from their very infancy up,
, for thiB is tho proper time to lay the
foundation for a good character in
tho future young man or woman,
nnd thoso aro the proper persons to
do tho work ; and let them also in
still in their mind, that tho most im
portant part of n puro and good
young man or woman's behavior is
to live up to their religion, especi
ally in regard to the treatment of
their fellows or neighbors, and that
the mere attending of church ser
vice, public confession and other
empty forms and even total absti
nence are not sufllcicnt, nor do they
constitute an essential part of a good
person's duties and'uro only too apt
to lead to hypocrisy.
1, for one, am convinced that
therein lays tho ouy true solution
of this question ; if parents will only
do their duty to their babies, and
boys and girls, in these respects,
they will Have,
in after years very
oyiiwy.it.'iwtiM'ai vi..wWjW.ic'. -

WATER PRIVILEGES AGAIN.
Ennon BruxTtx: I nndortook
to point out yesterday that tho water
Superintendent's notico about tho
10 percent imposition referred only
to those persons who had signed ap
plications for water privileges.
Now, us regards persons already
holding privileges piior to the law of
1880, I claim that to charge them
10 percent, in addition totheiegu
lar tatc, is a change of rate. The
very same law which imposes a duty
on the Minister of Interior, reads as
follows with respect to change of
"He may from time to time regu
late the rates to be paid for water,
and whenover such rates shall be
changed, notice thereof shall be duly
ndvoitiscd not less than onccn week
for at least four weeks in the Ha
waiian nnd English languages in two
or more newspapcis publislied in
There seems no authority what
ever for this 10 percent imposition.
The essence of the law is to lcgu
late not to flue sec its title which
reads, "An Act to amend Section
191 of the Civil Code and to regulate
the Government water supply."
It is not incumbent upon the
water Superintendent to regulate the
Government water supply, for he has
only to carry out what is regulated
by the Minister of Interior.
To require persons holding old
privileges to pay 10 percent in addi
tion to the regular rate is a change
of rate, and they should have pio
pcr notice of such change by the
Minister of Interior.

THE SUGAR MARKET.
New York, Jan. 27. An olllcial
but secret circular issued by "Willet,
Hamlin & Co., "Wall street sugar
brokers, says: "This week holders
have been successful in forcing off
two parcels of sugar by deducting
one-eighth cent on sales, but the at
tempt to place another 1,000 bags at
the same price pioved a failure.
The statistical position of sugar is
growing stronger every day and the
condition of this great market of the
United States appears ridiculous in
view of what the not distant future
is likely to develop. As the time
comes nearer for supplies to sensibly
diminish the advance will become
more regular and permanent, and
the United States will participate in
it; while thus far, owing to the ab
sence of all speculative interest,
such as exists in Europe, our markets
are influenced entirely by the present
supply and demand, and under the
policy pursued by buyers it will con
tinue to be pooity supplied, and the
demand which will govern prices
here, and the advance, when it
l caches us on this basis, will bo en
tirely legitimate. Kefincis' common
stock is sensibly diminishing. This
is supposed to be a hint at the result
of the operations of the Sugar Re
fining Trust. San Francisco Bul
letin. A REVOLUTION 111 SUGAR-REFINING.
New York, Jan. 17. An interest
ing commercial cxpei iincnt is about
to be tried by the Electric Sugar
Refining Company in Brooklyn. It
is claimed that the company lias se
cret machinery and processes pro
tected by patent by which sugar
can be relined in two hours instead
of the old time of thirty hours, and
the cost of refining will bo reduced
from 10 to 80c a ton. No soft su
gar will be made and the waste of
saccharine matter will onty he one
half of 1 per cent. The company is
capitalized largely hy British money.
It is said that sugar will be placed
on the market by the new piocess
in about two months. The promot
ers of the enterprise pi edict a revo
lution of the sugar trade. The new
refining process to be intioducedjby
this company is the invention of a
German electrician who perfected
its operation over three years ago.
Since that time preperations for the
approaching inauguration of . the
plan have been pi ogressing steadily,
although slonly, as great precaution
lias been taken in the construction
of machinery. To guard against
the possibility of imitation all the
component sections of the plant
have been manufactured at different
places, widely separated in point of
location, and are now being put to
gether at tho new rellneiy, whore
tho business will he lormally com
menced on or about the 1st of
A C1GAKTIC SCHEME.
jiovi:mi:nt 'io aii i.Aitor.i.v
1R01'1TS OV SUfiAlt KKFIKEltS.
New York, Jan. 13. TIio "Post's"
Washington special says Hint tho
btatcment is confirmed by persons
whose accuracy cannot ho doubted
that sugar men hnvo privately given
notice that they will not resist a re
duction of one-half the presens duty
on sugar, and Hint this proposition
proceeds from tho Sugar Trust, tho
reduction to bo made on low-grado
sugars. Tho 'Tost" Bays : Low
grade sugars are those which the
refiners alone import or use. The
duty could bo removed without re
ducing the cost of commercial
sugar, and the reducing would only
add to tho profits of the icfliicr.
This is tho argument which the op
ponents of sugar i eduction arc "'
roadv mnkiner. Ono of tho leading
j representatives of tho sugar iuterosts
"irrfte .iW S- id- & 1 1 1 'l ., . It-!, n I i. b .. t.
of tho Pacific Coast says: "This
wholo scheme to reduce one-half the
duty upon sugar, which proceeds
from tho rcflneiics, is simply a move
ment on their part to add 30,000,
000 a year to their profits without
reducing tho cost of sugar to the
consumer. If tho people nro to bo
benefitted by any reduction, it must
be mado upon tho imported grades
which they buy and not upon thoso
grades which aro only used os raw
material by tho refiners. In con
nection with this proposition of the
sugar trust, I understand that it will
also be proposed to give a bounty
to American manufacturers of sugar
in Louisiana and elsewheie in order
to secure additional strength. This
is one of the most gigantic schemes,
in my judgment, that has ever been
undertaken by any of the great trusts
of the country, and means to them
just now, if they can carry out this
programme, an additional profit of
30,000,000 annually without any
benefit to any human being who
purchases sugar in this count y for
