Chicken-stealing lias become un
usually prcviilenl. For tine two or
three wccl's immediately preceding
Chinese 2sew Year such a thing was
expected, expectation being based
on fonner expciienee; but a con
tinuation after that pci iod has com
pletely passed is umibual. Scarcely
a day passes but one or inoic per
sons lepoit chickens lost during the
previous night. It is the duty of
the police to catch the thieves,
which everybody knows; but how
to catch tliem is not easily decided.
The thieves arc not in the habit of
announcing their intentions before
hand, so that it is not knovn where
they are going to operate. To
place a policeman in charge of
every lot of chickens within the city
limits is an impossibility. All the
police can do is to be as vigilant as
possible, and if they are so, they
cannot fail to drop across some
thief, sooner or later, to be made an
The following is from a private
letter, wiittcn in San Francisco to a
The position of those who arc in
terested in the American Sugar Ke
linery is by no means to lie envied.
It is in the middle of a suit which
will undoubtedly result in canceling
the charter of the company, and in
closing the doors of the rclir.cry. It
is in even a worse condition than the
New York refineries which belong to
the Tiust, for the laws of California
regarding corporations, are the more
stringent. Like the Noith River
Refinery the chaitcr of the Ameii
'can will be canceled, a icceivcr will
be appointed, and its doors will be
closed. This may lie expected to
happen within two or three months
at the latest. The llavemeyer and
Elder Refinery will soon be in a si
milar predicament. Public senti
ment has decieed against trusts, and
the Courts have found that their ex
istence is contrary to law. By this
time the American Refiner)' should
have filed its answer to the complaint
made against it ; the argument will
soon be heard and a decision ren
dered, which there is every leason
to believe will be against the coipo
ration. You may now well consider
how your interests will be affected.
It is quite time that planters began
to look the issue straight in the face.
They have agreed for a term of
years to sell their sugar to the Ame
rican Heflnery Company. Jt is a
moral certainty that this corporation
will, in a few months, be prevented
from doing business. As a matter
of fact it has no legal existence to
day. Should the company fail to
pay for the sugar purchased, then
planters have no redress whatever.
They cannot sue a concern that has
no existence in law, and the result
would, in any case, be futile, for the
American lieflnery Company has no
assets upon which to realize. Jt has
deeded all its pioperty to a few per
sons whose business address is Wall
street, New Yoik. The American
Hennery Company so-called, by
courtesy, not by right has no pio
perty and owns no refinery. It has
given these away in return for paper
ceitificates that aio of no commer
cial value. It is advisable that the
planters should transact their busi
ness with some substantial concern.
They should run no risks, and can
not afford to lose payment for any
cargoes of their sugar. As the
American Refinery Company has no
existence in law, the contracts made
with it by the planters, for the iale
and purchase of sugar, are void and
of no effect. It is doubtful even
whether they can be protected by
any contract with the same concern,
no matter how it is drawn up. This
phaso of tho question has not form
erly been discussed, but it is of the
most vital importance, and planters
would do well to consider the advi
sability of making now arrange
ments with those who are really the
rcsponsibltj.pitics. Thoy are' now
in an unfortunate position, contract
ing with an illegal body that has no
standing, no responsibilities and no
property. Matters may continue as
at present lor a few month), but
It is a matter for icgiet thai the
Trust has decided to change the
management of I ho American Sugar
Refinery. Neither Mr. Andrew
Welch, tho President of the com
pany, nor Mr. Hun, it-. Superinten
dent, has now anything to say re
garding its affairs. The Tiuslsenl
its own men from Wall street to
draw the fat alaric and
hold the leins. The new men
are strangers 10 iiawauans wno
will all regret to lose their close bu
siness associations with a gentleman
like Mr. Welch, with whom they
have so long been intimately and
satisfactorily connected. Mr. Welch
has hardly suffered fair treatment
at the hands of the Trust, lie has
now nothing to say regarding its
business in San Francisco. It is to
be hoped, however, that planter
will receive fairer treatment, but
this can hardly be expected fioni a
concern that lias already manipulat
ed the market quotations with a
view to cheating them. The change
that has been made is a matter for
l egret, and there is not one planter's
agent in Honolulu but will feel this
even if he will not openly acknowl
ICniioii lHi.i.r.Tis : 1 see by the
latest news from the Coast that a
bill has nasscd the Lcuisliilurc in
California against trusts. In addi
tion to the common law it provides
that all trusts or combinations may
be punished by line, forfeiture of
franchise, and imprisonment of per
sons. Foreign corporations enter
ing into a compact arc to bo debar
red from doing business in Califor
nia, and to pay a fine ol 5,000. It is
made the duty of the Attorney-Gen
eral to enforce the Law. How would
such a law do here for our Insurance
trust? Wo now have to pay about
double the rates we did two years
ago, owing to the combination of the
companies and agents here.
Emtok lki.urnx : During my
short stay in the city J have heard
frequent mention of the "Pioneer"
Club, and as a mysterious concern.
On inquiry J could onl)' learn that
it was a club, of which H. II. Webb
was president, L. M. Toussaint vice
president, G. JI. Putnam secietary,
and K. M. Doyle treasurer. The
object of the club 1 could not find
out, and I appeal to you for infor
mation. Is it a secret society with
objects devoted to the advancement
oi social or political sciences? Is it
a society, around which the annihi
listic movements arc concentrated?
or is it simply a society, whose intents
is the advancement ot the intellect
ual condition of Hawaii Nui? Iain
entirely at a loss, and I appeal to
you. Will you kindly answer me?
I am a searcher for truth, and in
this my only avenue' of communica
tion, 1 appeal to you for early en
lightenment. A Tounivr.
Don't know anything about it.
Have made enquiries without effect.
A PARENTOTtHE "SLING SHOT.
Euiroit Buuxtin: As the parent
of a child who has been injured, and
possibly permanently, by this per
nicious habit of "sling shotting"
auione: our boys, allow me to thank
you for your article of Wednesday.
Woids cannot express with sullicient
force the alarming nature of this
practice. From the occurrences of
the past few days, the streets are
rendered really insecure to school
children, and passengers 111 car
riages, as they are continually liable
to injury from these little, deadly
sling shots. Arc the police too 111
cllicicnt to put a stop to this, or
is there no law under which the
sling shotters can be punished ?
Ceitainly, it appears to me that
these evil-doers could be snugly
taken care under the Statute, that
against malicious mischief for such
it is without doubt. I sinceiely
hope you will continue to prick the
police to a sense of their duty, in
suppressing this evil, and thus if
they are awako to your appeals cut
in the bud, that which would prove
a pernicious plant if allowed to come
to bloom. J. C D.

Kiiitou lk'M.nriM III the
i.ini.N Feb. Mth, is an article
from the Ililo Record on tho biibjeet of
voting for Nobles antl Represenla
tivcb at the next election. In the
article appears a bentenee which
reads, "The only available candi
dates as uo now hear are Dr. Wight
and J. 31. Homer." Now then, IMr.
Editor, as the Chinese question will
have to bo buttled at the next Legis
lature satisfactorily to the people
rcgnidless of the self-chosen few, I
would ask if it viiis not IMr. J. M.
Ilornei who in the course of liis
speech at one of tho planters' meet
ings held in Honolulu borne three or
mote years ago, who htiid that "If a
white mau could not compete with a
Chinaman, he ought to go under,"
and much more to that effect. The
gentleman by his lute writings in tho
lk'i.i.i.uN would lead one to believe
that he takes a great interest in tliu
welfiue of the human family
but I must say his last epistle
in the Hii.i.iniN of February

as l,do or die" kind of pirit, dress

sauces such as "red-mouthed devils,
Jauggeinaiits of hell, etc." Wonder
if he learned that sort of sentiment
hanging around camp meetings in
tho wilds of Utah, possibly so. Hut
then the gentleman can do a kind
nen, satisfy and savo the people the
trouble ol looking up the lecords,
by answering whether or not he is
the Mr. Homer that made the above
remarks at one of the aforesaid
meetings held in Honolulu. IS'.
HAWAIIAN CONSULATE AT SAN
The San Francisco "Examiner"
in a leccnt issue has the following
account of tho Consulate of Hawaii
at San Ftancisco:
The Consulate of-llawaii has been
for three and a half years in the
hands of D. A. Mckinley, whoso
olllce is at U02 California sticct.
Mr. McKinlcy was tho American
Consul at Honolulu. for four and a
half years, but was suspended by
Cleveland in 'SI. Then King lvala
kaua sent him here as Consul-Gcn-cral.
Tho difference, by the way,
between a Consul-General and a
plain every-day Consul is that the
former has jurisdiction over several
subordinate Consuls. Sometimes
these aie appointed by the homo
Government, souietini03 b)' the Con-sul-Gcneral.
Mr. McKinlcy has two
under him one at Port Tovvnsend,
and one at Portland, who 111 0 ap
pointed by the King. His district
covers California, Oregon, Nevada
and Washington Territory.
The n'ciproeity treaty between
Hawaii and the United States makes
his position very onerous. He must
oversee the shipment of all goods to
Hawaii, take the names of shippers
and consignees, value of the ship
ment, whether or not the oods aie
free, and if dutiable the amount of
duty. He tiles away the statistics
of all this, and as there arc from two
to three bundled shippers on every
monthly steamer, from fifty to
seventy-five on tho through Sydney
steamer that touches at Honolulu,
while sailing vessels take freight
every week, making, all told, about
$3,000,000 woith of good3 each
year, ii is evident the post is not an
easy one. One of his most frequent
duties is to give information to peo
ple who are going to Hawaii.
He also sliips and dischaiges
sailors under the Hawaiian Hag. As
the ships displacing that Hag arc in
ct casing lathei lapidly this duty is
becoming an impotlnnl one. Dur
ing the time he ha1- held the position
ten or twelve vessels have tieen put
under it, and during the last month
there were two.' Mr. McKinlcy is a
portly gentleman with a smooth
shaven face, who has an exceptional
memory for exact dates and always
mentions incidentally the year,
month and day upon which any
event toolc place.
