Its Present State I
The Prospect !
I was premature in saying in my
last jottings that Mr. 13. L. G.
Steele had left the Coast for Ger
many, in connection with the Sugar
Ueot business. lie turned up at tho
luto meeting of the Chamber of
Commerce, at which "sugar" was
discussed ; but his friends say, and
they should know, that the enter
prising Steele, is of a truth, going
to Germany, not to study tho manu
facture of beet sugar, but to tell the
Germans how they ought to make
it. When he returns he will pro
bably llnd Hawaiian capital to back
him in an effort to duplicate Colo
nel Sprockets' beet factories; and
his backers will probably also lose
their money. Who knows? This is
a wicked commercial world, and E.
L. G. Steele is one of its reformers.
But Mr. Steele is no longer Picsi
dent of the American Sugar Iiciln
ery. Mr. Welch, until recently
trcasutcr of that organization, is
now its president, and Mr. Steele is
on the outside. The new president
is well known on the Islnnds, having
been identified with its shipping
trade for many years, but until re
cently he lias had no connection
with sugar reliniiig. lie is now on
the higli road to knowledge,- and
what ho is not likely to learn in the
next twelvemonth will not be wotth
President Welch evidently under
stands what is before him. There
.has been a "little unpleasantness,"
as you probably may be aware of
for some time past, between the
American and California refineries,
brought about by the attempt of the
American people to cripple its pow
erful competitor. This was the
Steele policy, and President Welch
is in command now to cany on the
war. His Scotch blood is up, and
he means fight. "It is a fight," he
said in an interview published by
the "Examiner" of tho 8th inst,
"between a Dutchman and a Scotch
man, and the latter can stand con
siderable war. Of course I do not
know to what extent tho fight, be
tween the two refineries will be car
ried on, but Mr. Spieckels is play
ing for the keys of the Amciican
Sugar liefmcry. lie will not have
them, because I think that the pub
lic nterest demands that no monop
oly iu sugar shall exist. We will not
underbid Mr. Spreckels, but we will
meet him fairly and squarely on any
proposition he moy make."
Now, this little speech shows that
President Welch is a green hand.
He is new to the quarter-deck, and
may lose his head and his ship as
well if he gets into troubled waters.
What on earth have the "public inte
rests," as seen thiough his gold
rimmed spectacles, to do with the
price of sugar? Its production and
sale aie conducted for profit, and
not with the slightest reference to
Commercial philanthropy may be
a rule of business with President
Welch, but if persisted in, the Ame
rican Sugar Kelinery will soon be a
"burst institution." And indeed
the bellicose "son of Old Gaul"
seems to have a glimmering percep
tion of this, for, despite his "slo
gan" of war, he gives tongue over a
trilling under-cut in his first encoun
ter with his "Dutch" antagonist, us
he is pleased to style Colonel Sprec
kels; for he says: "'We will meet
Mr. Spreckels on every proposition
as 16ng as he reduces the price of
sugar lie has on hand. He has now
quoted tho yellow sugar at 5 and 5 J
cents per pound, knowing that wc
have a largo quantity iu stock, while
ho has not one pound iu his refin
ery." Poor Mr. Welch 1 And you
met the demand at the California
Refinery's quotations. You have
yet to learn how benevolent one
feels nt reducing a competitor's
prices giving the masses cheap su
gar while keeping one's own price
list up to paying figures.
All this has a very serious side
fpr tho planters. Their interests
aro being played with, that is, of
those who have contracted with llio
American Sugar Refinery; and tho
fact that the3' hold the majority of
its stock does not help them. They
don't manage it. They don't con
trol its business policy ; and if they
had had business sense anyhow they
never would Jiayc got themselves
into their present position. They
aro voluntary dupes of their own
prejudices and antipathies, and will
piobably pay the full penalty before
their business folly has run its
course. This, however, is not tho
point iu ham), it is the status of
the sugar question on the Coast aptl
iu the United States to-day.
It is needless to go into de
tails. Sulllco it that tho Eastern
Sugar Trust 1ms already taken sev
eral million dollars In profits out of
tho American people. Tho amount
has been stated at 812,000,000, but
this seems to he pxcpssiYc. Jt is a
vciy large sum however. Tho Trust
has reduced tho prico of Cuba cen
trifugals Ofi test to fig j the actual
value in tho world's market is He. ;
and it has raited the price of refined

sugar almost to the point at which
foreign imports would be profitable.
They will stop short of that point,
however, and gather all the wool
that can bo shorn between it and
the averago price in London, San
Francisco and other sugar centers,
it is reported from New York
that President Welch has put the
American Refinery into the Sugar
Trust for tho purpose of lighting
the California Refinery, Col. Sprec
kels having firmly but courteously
declined, when in New York, to
have anything to do with it. I do
not believe this report; but if it be
true, what a comment upon Mr.
Welch's uxprcssed horror of a su
gar monopoly, and his tender solici
tude for the public interests 1 Be
that as it may, however, the point
for the planters to consider is this:
how long will they be content to
sell their sugar on the basis of a fic
titious value? Their contract with
the American Refinery covers the
present year, and as the crop that
is now being marketed is the largest
perhaps that has over been pro
duced on the group, in what posi
tion does it leave them? The price
they arc to receive for their sugar is
fixed by New York rates. But the
Sugar Trust, as it is called, in other
words the refiner's pool, fixes those
rates arbitral ily to suit themselves.
There is nothing to prevent them
fixing the price for Cuban centrifu
gals at 4c. ; and if so, what arc the
Hawaiian planters, under contract
to the American Sugar Refinery, go
ing to do about it? They must accept
that price, for it is "so nominated in
the bond" a bond which, when
perfected, was hailed with acclama
tion by a great many otherwise sane
people, as a kind of Hawaiian
Magna Charta, which would destroy
monopoly and make everybody rich,
happy and content. But since then
they have had a kind of lop-sided
"Reform" as an after-clap of their
insular Magna Charta; and now
have as a collateral the Eastern Su
gar Trust, and a possible 4c. price
for their sugar, staring them iu the
face. For wiich good things they
will doubtless return thanks with
grateful hearts. ,,
The trouble is, that the planters
appear to bo perfectly helpless ; and
if the American Refinery joins tho
Eastern pool it will not mend mat
ters, but the reverse. They cannot
ship to London, because they must
deliver their sugar hero. This Eng
lish back-door has been taken ad
vantage of in the East, one cargo
from Demarara having been sent on
to London from New York, while a
second cargo was taken out of bond
and similarly despatched. Hawaiian
planters arc in a cleft stick, how
ever, and cannot move.
Now, what is the position of tub
two Refineries on the Coast? If a
war of prices is to be waged, which
of them is likely to come out of it on
top? Manifestly the Refinery which
is best organized ; which has the
greatest capacity of production at
the lowest ratio of cost; which has
the best business management ; buys
its raws in the cheapest market;
and lias most command of money.
Under every head, the California
Rofiupry far outranks tho American.
It has, moreover, a hold on the
trade, in a way and of a kind which
the American Refinery cannot pre
tend to. It therefore occupies the
quoin of vantage.
What arc their preparations for a
fight? The American Refinery will
have 88,000 tons of sugar to dispose
of during the year, 8,000 tons of
which were bought by Mr. Steele
at top prices, without any deduc
tion. This supply more than suf
fices for the Coast consumption.
The California, Sugar Refinery will
handle 100,000 tons, including tho
Islands sugar which it controls.
This quantity would supply the con
sumption of California and Oregon,
and all tho Territories from Dakota
iu the North to New Mexico and
Arizona in tho South.
This vast supply of sugar must bo
soul, ami in ctrecting sales some
body will get hurt. Col. Spreckels
says he refines sugar to sell, and he
intends to supply the market within
tho entire territory opoii to him. Mr.
Welch says he will match Colonel
Spreckel's bids for trade by even
prices. That is tho position in a
nutshell. It certainly is not a com
forting one to stockholders in the
American Refinery, because the
California Refinery 1ms thp advan
tage in the price at which its stock
of sugars has been procured. One
cargo of over 2,000 tons has arrived
from Manila, another is fully due,
others aro loading, and altogether
about ten ships have been chartered
and are either loading or on tho
way to Manila to load with sugar
for the California Refinery, yet
Col. Spreckels is on the look-out for
moro ships. This Manila sugar,
after paying 2 cents duty, is deliver
ed to the Refinery for considerably
less money than the American l$e
finery pays for its Island supplies,
There is this further advantage in
favor of tho California, that rclinoij
Manila sugar, wlien exported, gels
a rebate of the Uity, ho that here is
a bonus on exports which cannot bo
taken advanlago of by the American
Refinery. It must market all ifs
stock In tho United States, or ex
port without any bonus whatever,
And it is also manifest that the
Eastern Hugar Trust closes the At
lantic States against President
Welch, so that shipments around the
Horn Heed not bo thought of while
tho Trust remains intact.
Comment upon this stale of facts
is needless. They speak for them
selves. I think it may bo fairly as
sumed that the Hawaiian planters
will lose on their crop this year, by
reason of their own policy and com
bination over two years ago, between
one million and onc-and-a-lialf mil
lion dollars. What the stockholders
in the American Sugar Refinery will
lose iu a struggle to sell its 88,000
tons of high-priced sugar against
100,000 tons of equally good but
less costly sugar remains to bo seen
Perhaps the stockholders can "stand
the racket." Some of the San
Francisco papers assume that they
can, and speak of an arrangement
between one of them Mr. Jones, n
"millionaire Hawaiian planter and
business man" and tho Havc
meyers of New Yoik, to swing the
American Refinery and line with tho
Sugar Trust anil get away with the
Spreckels opposition. f I don't think
this report is true cither. The
gentleman referred to is far too
shrewd to bum his fingers pulling
Mr. Ilavemeyers' chestnuts out of
the red'hot embers, more especially
as the firms composing the Sugar
Trust of New York were, and are,
the most bitter and reckless oppo
nents of the Reciprocity Treaty in
America. Hawaiian planters should
fight the Trust.
Another feature remains to be
touched. That is, the tariff and the
beet sugar possibilities. Colonel
Spreckels is more than sanguine of
the success of his beet sugar .pro
ject ; so aro farmers and capitalists.
Eighteen tons of Silosian sugar beet
seed ariived in port two or three
days ago for distribution among
farmci s, and will be planted this
Spring. More seed is on the way.
With regard to the tariff, no ono
knows what Congress may do, but
it is exceedingly probable that a
compromise will be reached between
the two parties, and that the tariff
will be reduced by one cent per
gound. Colonel Spreckels is going
to Washington in March, and doubt
less when he is there he will be con
sulted, lie is the largest sugar
planter in the world, and being in
terested in cane sugar on the
Islands, also in establishing the beet
sugar industry in the United States,
as well as being perhaps the most
successful refiner in the country,
his opinion on the tariff will doubt
less have weight.
And here reference should be
made to tho late meeting of the
Chamber of Commerce, and its ac
tion regarding the tariff and sugar
bounties. It was engineered by the
American Refinery people, Mr.
Steele, General Dinioud and others
interested ii; that company having
run it. They opposed a bounty on
beet sugar because it was in the
direction of free trade, but were
very decided that a protective tariff
for the rest of the country and free
trade in Hawaiian Sugar for them
selves was what they must have to
get along deccntty. And they em
bodied this illogical proposition in
resolutions for the direction of Con
gress, and adjourned as full of self
sufficiency, and as ridiculous, as the
three famous "tailors of Toolcy
street," who resolved that "we are
the people of England." The Cali
fornia Refinery was not represented
at this meeting, and when spoken to
on the subject of a bounty for beet
sugar, Col. Spreckels said ,it was
premature to speak about it: what
lie wanted now was to establish the
beet sugar industry. He was at
tending to his own business strictly.
This may not bo pleasant reading
to many people on the Islands, but
as a serious crisis in their affairs is
impending, they should know just
in what shape it is likely to como.
If any body can "got, hi out of the
rain" they should do so iu good
time. ' T. N.
