THE AMERICAN REFINERY CHARGED
Cargo of Stoamor WoBtmeath
Calirornia Refinery on Top.
fCORllESrONDKNCE OP THE nULtnTIH
San Fiuncisoo, Deo. 8th.
Tho American Trust refinery Ib in
difficulties. It has not got itself
Into trouble by building churches
or other benevolent enterprises
which might be construed into a
breach of trust, but on a chargu of a
vulgar attempt to defraud tho United
States revenue. This is net surpris
ing in the caso of the Trust, but
considering the constitution of the
American ltcflnery Company it cer
tainly is an unexpected and aston
ishing development. The facts in
the caso are us follow :
The Biilish steamer Wcstnieath
arrived from Uatnvia last Monday
with a eargo of Java sugar consist
ing of about 3,800 short tons for
the American refinery. As this was
the biggest cargo of sugar ever im
ported at San Frnnchco, and the
first Java produce landed hero
about twenty years the arrival
cited considerable interest in
jobbinc tiade. It was a new
parturc, and seemed to promise
unlimited supply of raw sugar with
corresponding advantages to job
bers, because the Anioiieau reduced
the price of refined the day the
"Wcstmeath arrived by ljth cent per
pound. On that occasion the Cali
fornia refinery did not follow the
move of the American, but adhered
to its price of 8J cents for granu
lated. As the Amciicun was a cent
per pound , lower on the entire list
the jobbers took their orders to it.
The result has been that the Ameri
can is loaded up with contracts
which it cannot fill, thus leaving the
market to the almost exclusive con
trol .of the California refinery.
This situation will be appreciated
by business men, when it is stated
that the stock in jobber's hands is
unusually low, and that a very
active holiday trade has set in on
The Trust management has itself
entirely to blame. It appears to
have resorted to peculiar practices
to increase its profits, hence its
present trouble. On the arrival of
the Westmeath they entered the
cargo at under 13 Dutch standard,
which isicoyered by a duty of 1.92
UUUtS jer puuiid, and tcntlorod a
check fer 1-10,000 odd at the Cus
tom House for duty.
The work of discharging and
warehousing cargo was begun, and
for a time everything appeared to
work like a charm. But Uncle Sam
has a staff of vigilant ofllcers at
San .Francisco, and among the. most
capable aud alert is Appiaiser Beck.
The fact that Java sugar, which
usually polarizes about 97 should
only polarizes at 68 was a suspicious
circumstances in itself, and the
Appraiser had samples of the West
meath's cargo tested by the United
This officer's repeated tests con
firmed the suspicions of the Ap
praiser, as it was clervly demon
strated that the sugar was of a far
higher grade than represented, and
bad been arificialty colored. lle
'peate'd tests with Hawaiian sugar of
the same grades as the Java sugar
bad been er .ered at, showed im
colored crystals in the Islands sam
ples, while in every test of the Java
the alcohol washed away yellow
coloring matter leaving beautiful
white crystals, which would easily
came up to No. 20 Dutch standard,
tho duty upon which would be three
cents per pound an apparent fraud
of 1.08 cents per pound.
This discovery was reported by
W. Beck, the appraiser, to Collec
tor ITnger, ojo of the most cautious
of men and a lawyer of eminence.
The chemist's rcpo t with sarrp'es
of Java sugar taken from the cargo
and m alehouse, were forwarded to
the Secretary of the Treasury at
IVaBb'nglon yesteiday, December
7tfi, and, the Col'ecor ordered de
livery stopped, and placed the Java
ougar'ashore and afloat in the cus
tody of United States officers.
This action by tho Co'lector of
tho Port wi hdraws tho Westmealh's
sugar as effectually from tho mar
ket from present use as if it were at
fcho bo -torn of the sea. Tho Collec
tor will be guided by instructions
from tho Secretary of tho Treasury,
and his decision will depend upon
the report of the Chemist of tho De
partment. There can be very little
doubt of the result, as an interview
with tho Custom-houBO officers con
cerned shows that they are very
confident of their ground, Should
tho San Franc'sco chemist's test bo
-sustained by the experts at the East
tho cargo will be seized and confis
cated, together with tho check of
$140,000, and the managers of the
Keflneryj or those responsible, are
liable to fine and imprisonment.
Meanwhile the sugar is withdrawn
from sale fer an indefinite period,
and is steadily deterjoiating, while
the Westmeath is rupiiing up a
heavy bill of demurrage. Indeed,
this detention is likely to prove a
very 'valuable extension of the
( charter to the steamship owners.
The alleged contemplated fraud on
itnia single cargo cannot uq less man
$55000 and upon n thorough test
of all tho sugar, it may amount to
5100,000 and upwardB.
The American pcoplo have been
buzzing around Collector Hngcr to
knew when the embargo will be re
moved from the sugar, but he can
give them no consolation, Tho af
fair is out of his hands. His busi
ness now is to take care that none
of it gets out of his possession, and
judging from precedent it may bo n
year before any decision is arrived
at. Great bodies move slowly, and
tho United States Trensury Depart
ment is emphatically a great body.
Moreover the Pacfic Coa3t is a long
way off and its affairs are usually
attended to with a deliberation
which necessarily involves delay.
"It may bo a year or it may be for
ever," as the song goes ; meanwhile
the American refinery cannot handle
the sugar, tho declared value of
which, under tho 13 Dutch stand
ard, is $100,000. But even on that
amount the loss in interest and pro
fit will be very considerable.
Island planters have had some ex
pci ieuco in tho slow movement of
the United States Treasury depart
ment in a case in which they were
interested. Some years ago they
shipped a cargo of Island sugar to
New York to open thnt market.
Havcmeyer and Searle, who are now
the head and front of the Sugar Trust
aud therefore in a way implicated
in the Westmeath affair, caused the
Custom-house authorities to stop
delivery of the Hawaiian sugar on
the charge that it was fiaudulcntly
entered, and should pay duty as re
fined. This charge was false, but
it took about a year to determine
the point and release the sugar,
which had meantime shrunk in
value and missed its market. These
gentlemen are now interested with
Havcmeyer and Searle in the Am
erican Trust refinery, but of course
haye had no knowledge of tho Trust
method of doubling up profit by de
frauding the revenue.
Should it turn out that the Col
lector made a mistake the Refinery
has no remedy. The trust must
bear the loss. And this does not
seem to be the last of it. One of
their Java ships put into Hongkong
leaking, and a mixture of salt water
does not improve ths quality of
sugar however high its grade. It
is certain to wash off the coloring
matter. AVhcn the overdue ship
airives there may be further trouble
unless the American people make an
honest entry. But as this would be
a confession of fraud in the West
mealh's case it will hardly bo done.
The American, a3 has been al
ready said, is out of raws. The S.
G, Wilder is out from Honolulu
about ten days, and she brings
something like two days' supplies.
Apart from this and the Java sugar
tho refinery has no prospect for sup
plies ahead. The Coast market
therefore belongs to the California
lefinery for the holiday trade at
least, and how much longer one
cannot tell. This advantage has
been given to it by the greed and
dishonesty of the Trust, without
any effort or design on its part.
The action of the Collector in
putting his official seal on the West
mealh's cargo caused great excite
ment on the street yesterday, as
both the refinery nnd the trade'werc
caught shoit. Public sympathy is
against the Trust. It is regarded
as an unlawful combination tp cheat
consumers, nnd when to this offence
is added a charge of defrauding the
revenue popular indignation waxeth
warm. The morning papers appear
to have missed the news last night,
but the evening papers to-day are
full of it. The foregoing, however,
is the talc as it happened to fall out,
without any embellishment or exag
eralion. It is probable that an attempt
will be made by the Attorney-General
of California to prevent the
American refinery from trading as a
corporation pending decision in the
action to cancel its charter. It is
certainly not a corporation of the
State of California in fact, whatever
else it may be. One of the Have
meyers is here in charge. Tho
Trust could not "trust" to the
management of the Islands direc
tory. If they had remained in con
trol perhaps the Westmeath's sugar
would not have been colored the
strong presumption is that it would
Argument in tho New York case
to cancel the North River Refinery's
charter has closed, and counsel has

of counsel for the trust, made a
peculiar argument. Ho contended
that sugar is not a necessary of life,
although everybody used it as an
article ot food, and ho also argued
that the market could not be cor
nered becauso the supply was prac
tically unlimited if capital weio em
ployed in raising cane (and growing
sugar. The fallacy of these argu
ments is self-evident, but they wore
the strongest presented for the
Trust, which wns represented as a
benevolent institution founded by
disinterested capitalists to reduce
the price of sugar. It may now

HOW PILLS ARE MADE.
THE custom of taking medicine
in tho form of pills dates far
back in history. Tho object is to
enable us to swallow easily in a con
densed form disagreeable and nau
seous, but very useful, drugs, To
what vast dimensions pill-taking
has grown may ho imagined when
we say that in England alone about
2,000,000,000 (two thousand mil
lion) pills are consumed every year.
In early days pills were made slowly
by hand, as the demand was com
paratively smnll. To-day they are
produced with inOnitely grentor
rapidity by machines especially con
trived for the purpose, and with
greater accuracy, too, in the pro
portions of the various ingredients
No form of medication can be
better than n pill, provided only It
is intelligently prepared. But right
hero occurs the diflleulty. Easy aa
it may seem to make a pill, or a
million of them, there are really very
fow pills that can bo honestly com
mended for popular use. Most of
them either undershoot or overshoot
the murk. As everybody tnkes pills
of some kind, it may be well to men
tion what a good, safe, and reliable
pill should be. Now, when one feels
dull and sleepy, and has more or
less pain in the head, sides, ana
back, he may be sure his bowels are
constipated, and his liver sluggish.
To remedy this unhappy state of
tilings there is nothing like a good
cathaitic pill. It will act like
charm by stimulating the liver into
doing its duty, and ridding the
digestive organs of the accumulated!
But the good pill does not gripe
and pain us, neither does it make us
sick and miserable for' a few hours
or a whole day. It acts on the
entire glandular system at the same
time, else the after-effects of the
pill will be worse than the disease
itself. The giiping caused by most
pills-is the lesult of irritating drugs
which they contain. Such pills aro
harmful, and should never be used.
They sometimes even produce
hemorrhoids. Without having any
particular desire to praise one pill
above another, we may, neverthe
less, name Mother Seigel's Pills,
manufactured by the well-known
house of A. J. 'White, Limited, 85,
Farringdon Road, London, and now
sold by all chemists and medicine
vendors, as the only one we know
of that actually possesses every
desirable quality. They remove tho
pressure upon the brain, correct the
liver, and causo the bowels to act
with ease and regularity. They
never gripe or produce the slightest
sickness of the stomach, or any
Other unpleasant feeling or symp
tom. Neither do they induce fur
ther constipation, as nearly all other
pills do. As a further and crown
ing merit, Mother Seigel's Pills arc
covered with a tasteless and barm
less coating, which causes them to
resemble pearls, thus rendering
them as pleasant to the palaLe as
they are effective in curing disease.
If you have a severe cold nnd are
threatened with a fever, with pains
in the head, back, and limbs, one
or two doses will break up the cold
and prevent the fever. -A coated
tongue, with a brackish taste in the
mouth is caused by foul matter in
the stomach. A dose of Seigel's
Pills will effect a speedy cure.
Often-timeg partially decayed food
, in the stomach. and bowels produces
sickness, nausea, &c. Cleanse tho
bowels with a doso of these pills,
and 'good health will follow.
Unlike many kinds of pills, they
do not mnke1 yon feel worse before
tyou are better. They are, without
doubt, tho best family physio ever
discovered. They remove all ob
structions to the natural functions
in either sex without any unpleasant
