WEDNESDAY, JULY. 23, 1888.
Private letters received by the
.Australia give an insight into the
workings behind the scenes which
linve been the chief csuic of the re
cent rise in value of sugar. The ob
ject of the great American Sugar
Trust was to raise the price of re
fined sugar and at the same lime
lower that of the rav materinl, the
lesult to be an enormous profit to
the members of the Trust. The
latest developments,, aie that both
raws and refined sugars have ad
vanced in price and that the money
has been made, not by tho Trust but
by the outsiders, Col. Spreckels and
The Trust had been purchasing
raw sugar in New York only from
hand to mouth and forcing down
the price, so much so that cargoes
of sugar arriving at New York had
gone elsewhere seeking a market.
The Trust then began lo trj- and
boycott the brokers, telling them
that if they sold sugar to or for out
side lufinerics the- would not be al
lowed to handle Trust sugars. Col.
Spreckeh who is still in the East
busy about his new refinery, sceras
to have foreseen that thee would be
an advance in the prices of sugar,
and with the assistance of the brok
ers he gradually acquiicd all the
stocks in New York." These arc no
woith at least cent per pound
more than he gave for them. The
Trust is left without suuicient sup
ply to fill its orders and has had to
send to Loudon for cargoes which its
original action had caused to be sent
away from New "York. As soon as
this became known prices advanced
in London and there is every pros
pect of a further rise there, and of
course in New York also. The Trust
has had to purchase from Spreckels,
who is said to have already cleared
$2,000,000 out of his sales to them.
He declares that before the' have
done with him he will make them
pay the whole five millions which
his new refinery at Philadelphia is
to cost before the place itself is in
working order. All the brokers
have run with Spreckels, and if
there is any "boycott" as threaten
ed it is not they who experience its
"When the'steaihe'r left refined bti
gar was. up. to 8 cents per pound
in San Francisco. This advance
appears to have caught the Ameri
can Refinery napping. That insti
tution under its new management
altered the mle formerlyie-xisting in
the trade that the price of sugar
charged to customers should be
'that current on the day of de
livery. Mr. Welch agreed to de
liver sugars at tho price of the day
on which tho order wjis given .with
out regard to market flutuations
either way. Nearly a month ago
tiie California Refinery put up its
price for refined sugars slightly
abovo ,the quotations .of .tho, Ameri
can, with the consequence that the
latter was Swamped with orders and
has' now in hand enough to take a
month to fill. Meanwhile the price
liasjulvanccd to 8 cents, whilst the
American Refinery has to deliver
at G cents. This it cannot do
promptly enough to supply the daily
requirements ot the trade in San
Francisco, so the groeera are com
pelled to go to the California Re
finery for the balance of what they
need. At the same time it appears
probable that tho sugar which the
Amorican Refinery lias on hand or
to come forward is not sulllcipnt to
enable it to nil the brders'it has ac
cepted. Ngtjong ago it sent 12,000
'KJmVto 'New York and a cargo of
raw sugar to New Orleans. At pre
sent i prices it will liave't'o pay 0
cents for raw sugar,Bo that on filling
orders at G ceuts there must bo nu
actual loss. The control of tho
market for tho next six months is
likely to remain with tho California
which has ample ariangements for
supplies, whilst so far as is known
Jho American timing that period has
only about 10,000 tons to receive.
So far it would appear that the as
tute Colonel 1ms decidedly got the
bolter of the Sugar Trust both in
New York and San Francisco. As
the Trust is extremely unpopular
all over the States, the man Uio so
lately was execrated as a tyjpical
monopolist now poses before the
public as the popular and successful
anti-monopolist hero. The Trust
Refineries nro declining orders both
in the Fast and in tho West on the
plea Hint they arc straightening out
their books, but really because they
have lost their grip of the supplies
of raw sugar. As further advances
in pi ices aro confidently looked for
ward to orders aro pouring in to the
California Refinery from all parts of
the Pacific Coast and from almost
as far East as Chicago. The ex
pectation )s that refined sugars will
go up to 0 and probably 10 cents
OUR SAN FRAHcisGO LETTER.
Tho School Convention and other
The event most prominent in San
Francisco at present is the annual
meeting of the National Educational
Association that commenced on the
13th inst. and will be in session
during this week. When it is under
stood that there are now in the city
between -1000 and f)000 visiting
teachers and that 20 carloads are
expected to-morrow, you can appre
ciate in some degree the importance
ot this gathering and the inteiest
taken in its proceedings.
As representative here of tho
Daily Honolulu 13ui.lp.tix, every
facility has been afforded me for
obtaining inleiesting information,
and, I may add, that I have been
kept busy in answeuug queues con
cerning the Islands. 1 have met
some who have visited Honolulu,
and one and all such remember their
more or less limned trip "to the
Volcano" with pleasuic.
Theie is a woeful lack of general
information concerning the J'JawU,
as bno teacher remained, 'the only
information we liaie in thatshoit
paragraph found in Atlases and
Geographies under the head of.
Oecanica. (Upon being handed a
copy of the "Hawaiian Guide
Book," the speaker expressed her
tltlight and was immediately sur
rounded by others who were eager
to secure copies.)
Prof. M. 1. Scott is here and
busied in attending the meetings of
the Association. He reports find
ing considerable interest shown in
the educational, industrial and so
cial condition of the islanders, and
nptii little surpiiao is evinced Gy
many upon learning that "our"
school system, under its elllcicnt
Board of Education and energetic
Inspector, ranks as high as any
tither national system in the world.
In view of the fact that it is esti
mated that there- will be in the citv
this week between 7000 and 8000
teachers,, fropi all over the United
States, il is a pity that some ar
rangement was not made to have
placedin their hands information in
reg'ard to tliie islancls. All 'that can
be is being done to take advantage
of the opportunity by those who are
interested in the future of the Isl
ands, but much more might have
been accomplished if the occasion
had been anticipated. There is
some fun 'at the Convention. One
of the questions asked was, "What
is the first mention of an insect in
the Bible?" and a San Francisco
School inarm answered promptly,
"The wicked flee!" In the applause
that followed the correspondent of
the "Boston Advertiser" was heard
t& shout "Amen!" He was imme
diately corrected by a severe look
ing female philologist, who remark
ed, "You should say, A man!' "
Amongst four pleasant excursions
lo bo taken by tho teachers is one
next Friday to Mcnlo Patk nnd
Stanford University. At the same
time a lunch will be given at Mr.
Dan O'Conncl's residence, "Wel
In regard to political matters the
Presidential nominations being set
tled, both parties have set earnestly
to work to win the victory. The
nomination of Mr. Harrison as the
Republican candidate for the presi
dency took people generally by sur
prise. It is conceded Hint he is a
good man, but it is now understood
that McKinley of Ohio was the
choice of the delegates, but that he
refused to allow them to nominate
At a meeting of the delegates on
the Satin (toy night preceding tho
Monday when the nomination was
made it was asceitained that over
1.10 of tho delegates were going to
vote for McKinley. And they
would lmvo done so had he not per
sonally rcqutshu-d them not to ip so,
as long as Sherman was in the field,
as he, McKinley, was pledged to
support She, man.
Meanwhile OM-r a thousand tele
grams weie poured in to Sherman
begging him to withdraw as he stood
no chance, lie declined, however,
believing that ho can iud the "soli'd
South." In this matter he was mis
taken, as events proved.
Mr. McKinley enjoys tho honor
now of being the only man who over
declined n presidential nomination,
and to-day he stands at tho head
of his putty. It is more than pro
bable that in 1802 ho will be tho
nominee of the Republican patty,
which means that he will be Picsi
tlent. Tho change, making the Consu
late in this city a salaried office, is
announced. The sum set apait for
salary and office expenses amount
ing in the aggregate to 80.600, is
not any too much. The olllce is a

amongst the Consulate rendezvous
