Information comes to this ollicc
that the Chairman of the Inspectors
of Election at Wainnae has lieen
furnished from Honolulu with a
package of campaign sheets, and
a9ked to 'Send them mound." The
sheets contain articles from the Ad-
vet User, representing whut the lie
form party ha-j done. This is a
criminal attempt to make an Inspec
tor of Election, whom the law sup
poses to be impartial, a partisan.

are men of education and ability,
liberal in their views but with too

kind of men for legislators.
An occasional sputter of fire
crackers on Sunday heralded the
celebration of Chinese new year.
At midnight a terrilic din of bombs
and crackers told the arrival of the
great Oriental day, at the same time
murdering sleep and stimulating
anti-Cliincsc resolutions. Wailuku

one strike had been ground that

to give Chinese new year a chance.

llulldlnKN ntul IMnnt or the I'lilln.
Scarcely eighteen months have
elapsed since Clans Spreckcls de
termined to erect a Sugar Refinery
In Philadelphia. Having made up
his mind to do so, no time was Inst
in preparing the plans and letting
the contract for the work. It was on
August ttlt, 18SS, less than fifteen
months ago, that the first brick of
this new structure was placed In
position, and the corner stone was
laid on October 21), 1880, a little
over one year ago. It was then very
freely intimated that fully three
years would lie occupied in the com
pletion of the buildings, but this
lias been done in less than fifteen,
months and to-day the Spreckcls'
Sugar Refinery In Philadelphia was
stalled into operation.
II IK llfll.KINO mit.. .
The site on which the buildings
stand is situated between Reed
sheet and Dickinson street on the
bank of the Delaware River. It
covers in all nine, acres of ground,
exclusive of the space covered by
the three large wharves. The works
are built upon sedimentary, or made
ground, the whole weight being
borne by piles of which there arc
mote than 10,000. Tense piles
are -ID feet long, driven In
clusters of 20, with cross caps
and cement filling at the sur-
Pface, which binds the whole in a
solid mass. 1 lie masonry extends
about 12 feet below the surface of
the ground, requiring total excava
tions amounting to 20,000 cubic
yard. The main buildings are 120
feet high. The walls begin with a
thickness of "8 inches, and all this
immense weight, with tens of thou
sands of tons of iron posts, girders,
concrete lloors and machinery, have
not settled the work one traction of

The buildings now completed con

by CO feet wide, having an area of
1. 000 feet; the finishing house 83

with an area of 10,000 ; the barrel

an area of 25,000 feet. Re
sides these ate the offices for the
olllces for the engineer, the
superintendent and the staff of
clerks, the laboratory of the chemist
and his assistants and the building
for the electric light plant and ma

An idea of the immensity of the
work tnav be gathered front the fact
that lul'ly 20,000,000 of bricks
have been required in the construc
tion of the buildings, which range
from three to thirteen stories high.
The pan house contains four vacuum
pans, weighing 720 tons, with an
aggregate heating surface of 1 1,800
square feet. In this building alone
there has been consumed 1000 tons
of wrought iron and t!.Vt tons of
cast iron. The finishing house con
tains 2.'i() tons of wrought iron work
and 180 tons of cast iron ; the
boiler house 8,')0 tons of wrought
iron and 2i0 tons of cast iron ; the
filtering houses 2200 tons of. cast
iron ond IfiOO tons of wrought iron.
There are fit! char filter", weighing
2000 tons, and -18 char wash tanks,
weighing over !)()() tons, also -18 char
kilns and i eloi Is containing 2000 tons
ii.wnusv. tiii: coal.
The steam generating plant is
most important, as well as being
most expensive. The boilers are
the Hancock & Wilcox, of the water
tube type, divided into a number of
separate batteries, amounting to
7,.r00 horse power. Every known
improvement to economize fuel
has been applied. The Low-
cock economizing apparatus has
been employed, and the coal is
elevated by machinery to a storage
bunker, situated above the boil
ers whence it is delivered by
shiitcs to the Roney Mechanical
stokers, and by these automatically
supplied to the furnaces. The spend
coal, ot ashes, as'tnade, arc mechan
ically conveyed to an elevator and
delivered into an elevated receiving
bin from whence they ate discharg
ed into railroad cars on either side
of the boiler-house.

feet wide and (100 feet long. Here
a dozen of the largest ships and

The wharves are covered in, form

raw sugar can bo received and stor

conveyor runs along the whole
length of the dock carrying (10 tons
of sugar to the pans at a speed of
18 feet per minute. The whole of
the buildings are lighted with incan
descent lights, of the Westinghouse
alternating system, supplied from a
central station, on the ground. Au
tomatic s prinklers for protection
against fire are distributeil thiongh

has been done to make the Spreck

in the world.

An idea of the quantity of mate

buildings may be gathered from the
fact that it filled 2,:J87 cars. This
is in addition to what was delivered
on the wharves by water, and what
was hauled on the grounds by wag

The whole of tke plans and the
drawings for the immense refinery
buildings were prepared under the
direction of Mr. T. 11 Muller who
remains as Engineer in charge of the
works. The woik of construction
has been carried on under the im
mediate supervision of Mr. Charles
Watson, who has been Mr. Spreck
cls' chief engineer for twenty-five
years, and who will shortly return
to California to prepare for the erec
tion of a number of sugar beet fnc.
tories and to superintend other busi
ness that needs his direct attention.
The Superintendent of the refinery
is Mr. A. L. Sieghorhier, Jr.,
who will be directly responsible
for the work of refining the sugar.
Dr. A. Von Wachtel of Austria is
the Refinery Chemist. Allen R.

This will give his refinery a cwpacily

When all this is finished there will

There will then be found constant
