ONE POINT TO BE GAINED.
One point, anil Hint not an insig
nificant one, to be gained by the
construction of the projected rail
road to Pearl Ilaibor, is the bring
ing within easy reach of Honolulu a
most desirable locality for countiy
lcsidcnces, for pel sons whoso ietu
lar occupations are in the capital
city. Tlicic is piobably no place on
the islands, certainly not within ten
or fifteen miles of Honolulu, which
presents the same advantages for
private residence as the district of
Pearl Harbor. Here is a beautiful
sheet of land-locked water, safe in
all weathers for boating, etc. The
surrounding country is open to the
healthful trade winds, which most of
the year exeicise a cooling effect on
the atmosphere. Unoccupied land
is abundant. The whole population
f Honolulu might he transferred to
its shores without taking up one
tithe of the land on which nobody
now h es. With a lailroad connect
ing that district with the city, it
would be within reach of the means
of many of our business people and
others to locate their country resi
dences there, to whicn to retire at
the close of the day's duties, for
rest and luoreation. Thirty or forty
minutes' quiet travel by lail would
take one fiom here to there. No
doubt the completion of the road
will be followed by the springing up
of many pleasant homes in that dis
trict, now so spaisely populated.
Fortius reason, in addition to many
otheis, its completion will be hailed
THE NEW DIREGTORY.
By the Australia the first instal
ment of the new Hawaiian director
was leceived in this city and Mr. J.
C. Lane will at once attend to their
ditiibution through the city and
other islands. The book at a cursory
glance is. exceedingly well gotten up
the names are all in alphabetical
Older and the inlioduetion has been
written with much caie. There
should be a large demand foi copies.

The monthly business meeting of
thcY. M. C. A. will he held at 7
o'clock to-inoirov evening a half
hour earlier than usual.
The mon'b meeting last evening
was largely attended and the interest
warrants there continuance, so the
singing class will be omitted to-morrow
evening and :i gospel meeting
for men held instead at 7 :30. Noon
meets at 12:2." every day this week.
The whole of the whalers reported
imprisoned in the ice succeeded in
getting out. On October 22nd a
northwest gale spi ung up , which
broke up the ice and allowed the
whalers to get out into the open
sea. Following is the catch for the
season : Thrasher 5 whales, Abram

As announced yesterdaj', Madame
Jaffa, a well known pianist, arrived
on the Australia. On Tuesday
evening next, the 20th, the Madame
will give a piano recital in the Y.
M. C. A. Hall, using the Steinwny
grand piano. The admission will
be $1, and it is to be hoped our
music-loving people will turn out
in large numbers. Parents should
also see that their children who are
studying music are present as the
recital to them will bo worth more
than many lessons. The "S, F.
Alta" says of Madame Juffa: "This
lady is justly regarded as one of the
best exponents or interpreter of
classical music on the coast. By
her charming personal qualities,
highly cultivated mind and musical
talent, she has endeared herself to
a large circle of friends and pupils."
Madame Jaffa was in Honolulu in
18G7, and the "Gazette" of Feb.
13th of that year says, "Madame
Jaffa has won among us a good lepu
tation, as a pianist, for brilliant exe
cution, and the futo rendering of the
authors whaso music she played,
The programme was selections fiom
Beethoven, Thalberg, Prudent,
Mendelssholi and Schuloff. The se;
lections fiom Moidelsslion were ele
gantly played, and elicited wcll
i merited praise from good judges
present. It is a difficult matter to
interest an audience with the piano
alone, thiough au evening j yet we
did not hear any ono dissent to the
opinion that the concert had been a
Tammany Society Opposed to their
Formation and Existence.
At a meeting of the Tammany
Society last evening twche new
members were elected, including
Joseph Franklin, an ex-Assombly-man
and a Republican member of
the Legislature four yeais ago. C.
A. Buckley was added to the Com
mittee on Trusts. Members of the
society volunteered to guard the
polls on the night of the election and
the subsequent night. Speeches
weic made by Joseph Naphthaly,
A. J. Clunic, Joseph Franklin and
others. Mr. Franklin assigned as
his reasons for leaving the Repub
lican party and joining the Demo
cratic, the action of Grover Cleve
land m signing the Chinese Exclu
sion bill, and the failure of the Re
public Administration to provide
any lemcdy for the evils of Mongo
lian immigration. The Committee
on Trusts submitted their report,
which was unanimously adopted.
The committee were authorized to
employ counsel and to commence
action through the Attorney-General
of the State forthwith. The
report of the committee was as fol
low s :
To the President, Officers and Mem
bers of Tammany Society, San
Francisco, Gentlemen :
The undersigned, appointed at a
meeting of Tammany Society on
September 26th last as a committee
to investigate the workings of the
Sugar Tiust in this State, to ascer
tain the name of any Californian
coi poration belonging to said Trust,
and the advisability of the Society
taking action to counteract the inju
rious effects of planting the trust
system on this Coast, beg leave to
submit the following report:
The following extract taken from
the report of the Investigating Com
mittee of the State of New York,
gives the history of the formatiou of
the Tiust, oi, as it calls itself, "The
Sugar Rclineiies Company," its ob
jects and the manner of its work
ings: "The combination known as the
Sugar Trust, with a capital repic
sented by stock certificates amount
ing to 15,000,000, came into exis
tence by virtue of an agt cement
dated on or about October 21, 1887,
by and between the stockholders of
eight sugar refineries, csipoiations
of ibis and other States on the East
ern coast of the United States (one,
however, was located in St. Louis),
by which they agieed to surrender
the stock of their seeral corpora
tions to ceitain persons as Trustees,
called the Sugar Rclineiies Com
pany, and who were to hold the
same for the benefit of all ; and in
exchange for such stock so surrend
ered the several stockholder so sur
reiideiing receiving stock certificates
in the Sugar Refineries Compairy in
amount at least four times the nom
inal value of the slock surrendered.
'The stock of the several corpoia
tions in the bands of the trustees
called the Sugar Rcfiueiics Com
pany, gae them the absolute con
trol of all the refineiies in the com
bination, and enabled the trust to
run all the refineries exclusively for
the profit of all, and without any
competition between them. By
such surrender the several corpora
tions became the raeie satellites of
the trust (being the Sugar Refiner
ies Company), and all their affairs
are dominated fiom the central
body. A system of leports contain
ing statements of raw material pur
chased, refined sugar on hand the
daily output of each refinery, to
gether with the funds in the treas
ury, is established between the
tiust and its vassal corporations.
The Sugar Refineries Company, re
commended when a refinery shall
shut down and when it shall run,
but, at work or idle, it receives its
share of the general earnings. The
trust exercises absolute control of
all the industry, and in its discre
tion takes in new corporations,
which surrender their stock at a
valuation agreed upon, and in turn
receive certificates of stock in The
Sugar Refineries Company, for
which reception of new corporations
tho original trust agreement made
full provision. It is obvious that in
effect this combination, repiesent
ing as it does eighty-live per cent,
of the sugar refining capacity of the
Atlantic coast, and all the sugar re
fineries in the State, can gieatly af
fect, and for n time at least control,
at once tho price of the raw mate
rial, and of the refined product, and
this without regaid to the interest
of the consumor. It ap
pears that the price of sugar has
largely advanced sinco tho trust's
formation, and no satisfactory ex
planation was given of tho causo of
such advance, aside fiom tho com
bination complained of, of eighty
five per cent, of the sugar relinets
of the Atlantic coast to put up
Sinco the formation of "Tho
Sugar Refineries Company,;' and in
accordance with its original plan,
numcious additional refineries have
been taken into the trust, and
among them the "American Sugar
Refinery," a California corporation,
having its factory at the northwest
corner of Union and Batteiy streets,
in this city.
This corporation waa originally
formed 'as the American Sugar Re
finery, Tjiifc rcincotiiOrated oii tho
22d 'day of August, 1885, ns the
American Sugar Refinery Company
with a capital stock of 1,000,000,
divided, inl.0 10,000 shares of tho
par value of 8100 each, the objects
and purposes of the company, as sot
out in its articles of incoi poration,
being 1,lo cany on tho business of
sugar refining; to purchase, soil
manufactuic and deal in sugars and
the products thereof ; to purchase,
sell, hire, lease, maintain and oper
ate sugar leilncries and refining
works; to purchase, sell, hire and
lease such lands as aro lcquisilc or
convenient for cairying on the sugar
refining business; to purchase, sell,
construct and maintain Imildings,
machinery, tools and other articles
and matciials necessary or useful in
said business ; to purchase and hold
or sell shares of the capital stock of
other coiporations, and generally to
do and perform all other acts and
things necessary or useful or auxil
iary to the main objects of the com
pany as above set forth."
About tho 1st of March, 1888, the
"American Sugar Refinery Com
pany" amalgamated with "The Su
gar Rclineiies Company," .surrend
ering to the latter its entire capital
stock and taking in lieu thereof cer
tificates issued by said "The Sugar
Refineries Compairy," of the face
value of one and a quarter millions
of dollars. Since that time the
"American Sugar Refinery Com
pany" has been under tho exclusive
control of "The Sugar Refineries
Company," (which is not a corpora
tion but an association of Eastern
capitalists), the supply, as well as
the price of the sugar of the Cali
fornia Company, being legulated en
tiielybythe trust managers. The
American Sugar Refinery Company
has failed to carry out the put poses
for which it was incorporated, has
suriendered the entire control of its
properties to outside patties, lias
ceased to maintain its identity, and
has become part and paiccl of an
unlawful combination to 'decrease
the supply and increase the price of
a necessary article of domestic con
sumption. Cairying out the views of the so
ciety in undei taking this investiga
tion into the workings of the sugar
trust, your committee has also ex
amined into the piesent legal status
of said American Sugar Refinery,
which we understand is the only
California corpoiation belonging to
the said trust, and to that end have
examined the opinion of the Attorney-General
of the State of New
York, lendeicd in io the North
River Sugar Refinery Companj' and
in le the Sugar Refineries Company,
on the 29LU day of June iabt, and
have also consulted with the Ilon.i
G. A. Johnson, the Attorney-General
of the State" of California, and
now repoit to this society, after
such investigation, that in the judg
ment of your committee the Amer
ican tSugar Refinery, by becoming
amalgamated witli the Sugar Refin
eries Company, has committed an
illegal act, and that in a proper ac
tion in the Couits in the State a for
feituie of its chaitcr will bo decreed.
Your committee suggests that the
Tammany Society of San Francisco
take immediate steps to have the
Attorney-General commence a proper
action against said California
coi poration for the forfeiture
of its franchise, and for dam
ages, nntl to tnat end make piovis
ion tor the necessary costs and re
tain counsel to assist tho Attorney
General in such prosecution.
Your obedient servants,
