TUESDAY, FED. 10, 1889.
The war against Trusts continues
to be waged throughout the United
States. All tho State Legislatures
are now in session, and the majority
of them are enacting laws that deal
directly with combinations known as
Trusts. In California, for instance,
a bill lias passed which iullicts a line
of $5,000 upon any corporation
making a combination with others to
restrict free competition, and de
clares all such trusts to bo void. At
Indianapolis the penalties, in simi
lar cases, are from 1,000 to $10,
000 and imprisonment from two to
five years, livery member of a
trust is made liable for all the debts
and claims against the whole, and
debtors cannot be pressed by a
trust. Other State Legislatures
throughout the country, are follow
ing in the same course, and an effort
in the New York Legislature to
enact a law that could be over-ridden
by the Trust was speedily dis
covered, "the nigger on the fence"
being only too plainly discernible.
This effort was frustrated. Con
gress is also interested in trust
affairs and three amendments have
been adopted by the Senate to its
bill against unlawful combinations.
One of these amendments piovides
"that if a corporation is forced to
become a member of a trust, or
cease from doing business, it can re
cover damages." Another amend
ment provides for the imposing of a
penalty, in the case of existing
trusts, on any person who acts as
officer for a trust. The officers of
aud those connected with a trust are
made liable even if they live in a
foreign country. Tho tendency of
the times points to the extermina
tion of existing trusts in accordance
with public sentiment, and strin
gent legislation against their forma
tion in the future.
THE SUGAR BOUNTY.
Our last advices from San Francisco
show that there is a chance of the
Senate Tariff Bill being acted upon
in the House, it has been referred
to the Ways and Means Committee,
the chairman of which, Mr. Mills,
is reported as saying that the Bill
will bo carefully considered in com
mittee and that there will then pro
bably be a conference with the
m.m MmMMhMtiiir' "
Senate. An examination of the
main features of the KepubHean
and Democratic Tariff hills shows
only one point upon which there is
any degree of uuaninilly, and that
point is the duty on sugar. Tho
Democratic party ifi in favor of a
Iwcnh'-fivc per cent reduction, while
tho Republicans favor a fifty per
cent "cut." It is, therefore, more
than likely Hint, if any tariff to
form be effected, we may see
sugar selected as the base of opera
tions. We had all along been under
the impression that the eft'ort9 made
to raise beet sugar in the United
States, would have operated directly
in our favor ; that the infant indus
try would be protected by the main
tenance of the existing high tariff.
Our hopes have, however, been
rudely and suddenly shattered by
the sugar bounty proposition, as
passed by the United States Senate.
A bounty had never been antici
pated in connection with American
revenue matters, and was a blow to
Hawaiian interests from an entirely
unexpected quarter. A reduction
of fifty per cent in American sugar
duties means a loss of from $25 to $!50
per ton to Hawaiian planters, while
the beet sugar industry will be
specially protected to the extent of
$20 per ton. Congress has cer
tainly selected a popular and judi
cious method of reducing its sur
plus revenue, no matter how disas
trous it may be to Hawaiian inter
ests. The price of sugar will be
reduced to the consumer in the
United States ; the revenue will be
diminished ; and an infant industry
will, at the same time, receive ample
protection. 'Well informed men are
inclined to believe that, if any tariff
reform be enacted dining the pre
sent Congress, the Republicans and
Democrats will join hands upon the
sugar issue. Both are committed to
a reduction of duties, the only ques
tion undetermined being the exact
amount of the reduction, and pro
bably enough Democrats will be
found in the House to support the
Republican "cut" of fifty per cent
in the sugar duty. At any rate, it
is very apparent that Hawaiian
planters arc no longer sure of their
former proopci ity and prices, and
that our reciprocity Treaty even,
however beneficial it has been in Ihe
past, will not protect us against the
.absolute certainty of American tariff
legislation in the future. We muat
be prepared to receive much lower
prices for our staple product, and
the change will probably come with
in a twelvemonth.
Eimtok Buu.irrix: Certain state
ments in last Saturday's Bu'ri.r.riN,
under the heading "The Most
Spoken Language," are incorrect.
The Chinese language undoubtedly
stands at the head of the list; but
the figures given for the Hindustani
do not rank second for the reason
that the figures given for English
are not correct. The English lang
uage is spoken in the following
countries by the numbers of persons
placed opposite each, viz:
The British Isles :55, 000,000
United States.. 05,000,000
Australia, New Zealand
and Fiji 4,000,000
India, .South Africa and
the West Indies 1 ,000,000
All other parts of the
world and at sea not less. 1,000,000
Thus English is second. L.
LETTER FROM MOLOKAI.
Kim on Bl'i,i.i:tin: "Ivo Hawaii
l'acaina" in its issue of the 20 of
January brought a letter written by
S. Waiwaiolc, relating to his visit to
the leper settlement, Molokai.
I have not the honor of knowing
S. W., but judging from his letter
he must be a Reverend "who has
heard (he and his wife), he says," a
voice from heaven calling liiin for
missionary work among the lepers
at Molokai. 1 wish his Reverence
that the call was really from heaven,
though the impression made upon
my mind by reading the letter is
A few citations to characterize
the future hero of Molokai. After
having stated that tho houses of tho
children in Kcv. Father Damien's
place are good (niaikai), he says
"lie kapulu" how the children arc
kept there. The little ones with
tho parents outside are clean and
healthy, but those houses of the
children in care of Damicn and of
the Sisters "kapulu." "Kapulu"
means, uccotding to Andrew's dic
tionary, work slovenly done, dirty,
Therefore, according to the eye
witness, S, W., thecliildien's homes
of the Sisters' settlement are dirty
Many of your readers knowing the
good Sisters and having seen their
cleanliness at Kaktiako, must be
somewhat inclined to disbelieve the
statement of the man called to be a
I'erusing S. W.'a lottor, wo Hud
him saying that in the same Sisters'
scUleiiteiit nil is good and clean.
(Mnikai a maemac ko lnkou noho
ana.) If it is clean how "can S. W.
say that it is knpnlu, dirtv, or
filthy? and if it is dirty and filthy,
how can he write that it is nice and
As far as I know, S. W. is the
first who dares to speak ill of these
good sisters in their noble woik.
These white ladies, Rev. S. W.
nurse the sick llawaiians, they ban
ished themselves to help the
human society-expelled lepers, most
of them of your own race Mr. S. W.
But the slander is sufficiently ex
plained by the heavenly call, to do
missionary work in the same field
where Rev. Father Damicn and the
good Sisters are.
The people at Molokai know Rev.
Father Damicn, and they know tho
valiant Sisters, what therefore may
they think of their future reverend
Molokai. F.vriiKit Wi:mi:un
THE FIRST ON THE COAST.
Thc"lnland Printcr'Mn a recent is
sue announces that the first printing
office on the Pacific Coast was built
by two missionaries named Whit
man and Spaulding, who settled on
Lapwai Creek, a branch of the
Clearwater, and twelve miles above
Lewiston, Idaho. Tho house is still
standing and was originally a two
story building, though only the
ground lloor remains, and was made
of logs and shakes. It is now used
by the Indians for a stable. In this
building the first printing office west
of the mountains, on the Pacific
Coast, was established. The mate
rial was originally sent by the Ame
rican Board of Foreign Missions in
Boston, in 1809, to the Sandwich
Islands, and in IS 10 was presented
by the first native church of Hawaii
to the Lapwai Mission. E. O. Hall
came along with it to set the type.
The press is now in the State Li
brary at Salem, Oregon. S. F.
