THE TRUST SUGAR AFFAIR.
"l.3' i.i- .r,
DELIVEHY OP THE SUOAH ON PAY
MENT or 802,000 dutt.
(Corresnonkeuce of the Bulletin.')
San 'Francisco, Dec. l'5th.
The local press contains coniliot
ing statements regarding the course
of the Custom Plouse authorities in
iajthc i surrender of the Westmeath's
cargo'o'f'Java sugar to the Ameri
can Refinery on payment by the lat
ter, of $02,000 in round figures as
extra duty. It is contended that the
delivery of this sugar by the Col
lector was an abuse of authority.
The law on tho subject seems' to bo
clear, ami is brought out in an inter
view which appeared in the Examin
er of the 13th.
Collector Ilager does not. pretend
to say that ho has oboyed tho Jaw in
any published interview. What ho
did Bay, in response to the above
mentioned interview, was that he
would no incur the risk pf an nation
for 'damages by seizing and conns-1
eating tho sugar. His duty was
clear under his oath of office, but lie
would not assume tho risk of its
fearless execution. The Treasury
Agent telegraphed to Washington
for leare o seise and confiscate the
cargo, but received a reply to the
effect, that tho. Treasury approved
the action of 'the Collector. This
w9 before the samples could pos
sibly liavo reached Washington, a
most extraordinary circumstance,
and one eminently suggostive of
corrupt influence, when it is con
sidered that tho Senior Ilavemeyer
At onco proceeded to Washington
nnd saw tho Secretary of the Treas
ury on tho receipt of the first dis
patch announcing the refusal of tho
Collector to deliver the sugar. It
was reported that Jlr. Ilavemeyer
had contributed $60,000 to tho
Democratic campaign fund, and cer
tainly bis intluonco at Washington
gives a semblance of authority to
this rumor, for no sooner docs he
appear and make his statement
than it is accepted in advance
of the official reports, and Collector
Hager received an intimation that
the sugar should be delivered on
payment of extra duly pending fur
ther adjustment. This is done, and
Mr. linger stands by his chief and
Bhouldcrs the responsibility.
"It is all light," said Ilavemeyer
on his return to New York. "This
is Sprocket's doing. It may cost us
several millions, but wo will give
him all the opposition ho wants, and
consumers will doiivo the benefit."
This remark was telegraphed to
San Francisco, and was accepted by
tho Trust people as a declaration of
war. The Trust is certainly very
strongly intrenched behind the
Democratic Administration judging
from what has transpired, but il is
amusing to find il posing as the
people's friend. Mr. Searles, whose
malicious slanders on his present
allies, the Hawaiian planters, will
beremcmbcrcd,states that the West
meath's cargo is as represented,
under No. lil Dutch standard, and
similar in all respects to a cargo of
Java sugar imported a year or two
ago by thern at New York, which
passed without challenge. As no
Java sugar has been entered at
New York in the past six or seven
years, Mr. Searles is at his con
genial puisuit of lying, despite his
high moral reputation as a Sunday
school Superintendent. There can be
no uouut that tue sugar is lngli
grade, polarizing about 98. It was
entered as polaiizing 88. "When its
grade was challenged the owners
knew nothing about it, but suggest
ively enough they did not produce
their invoice. If their statement is
correct the Java sugar manufactur
ers sold No. 1G as under No. 13,
and degraded the character of their
sugar b3" artificial coloring to put
from $C0,000 to 80,000 into tho
coffers of the Sugar Trust on a sin
gle cargo a most unlikely pro
ceeding. The United States Treas
ury has secured over $00,000 in
duties which the Trust would have
cheated it out of ; it should have
had about $700,000 by forfeiture of
tho sugar and penalties.
It is safe to say that the last has
not been heard of this affair. Other
cargoes arc to arrive, and the ap
praiser's department, which has
been deprived of its share in the
forfeiture of thev Westmeath's sugar,
will not sleep on its .wrongs. This
transaction will probably also come
nip in Congress as an arraignment of
the Democratic administration,
which, vhile professedly opposing
trusts, has in this case protected
the most unscrupulous tiust of all
against the penalties incurred by it
in an attempt to evade the revenue
Statements have appeared in some
of the California papers the Chro
nicle especially to the effect that
only low grade sugar is made in
Java by the most primitive ma
chinery, and that therefore the
Westmeath's cargo is a high aver
age quality. These statements
emanate from the Trust manage
ment. They are absolutely false
and misleading. It has been im
possible to import Java sugar to the
United-Stales of late years, it polar
ized so high. The Westmeath's car
go,after paying actual dutj', without
forfeiture or penalty, involves a loss
of about one cent a pound to the
refinery at present prices. This is
Why the Spreckels refinery did not
import Java sugar, as set forth in
the published letter from their Ba
tavan correspondent. Java sugar
cannot be snipped to the United
States and sold at a profit, unless it
can be artificially colored and run in
as low grade sugar. This is what
was attempted in the case of the
Westmeath's cargo. There is no
getting behind the record in this
case. If opium, silk, cigars or other
dutiable articles had been captured
by the Custom House officers the
goods would have been confiscated
whether prosecution followed or not.
This is the regular procedure ; but
when a rich and powerful trust at
tempts to beat tho revenue out of
nearly $100,000 in duty, there is
neither forfeiture nor prosecution,
but something like an apology for
putting the law breakers to a little
inconvenience. Thus the law is vin
dicated under tho pure adminibtra
tion of Grovcr Cleveland. The San
Francisco papers have been unani
mous in characterizing tho Custom
House as a nest of corruplionists
and boodle-takers, and this last
case goes far to confirm tho accusa
tion. But in this instance it is diffi
cult to fix the responsibility.
