Under an editorial homily on the
purity of elections the Advertiser
thinly veils its exultation that a
scape-goat has been found on whom
to test the new election law. We
have no criticism to offer on the
Governmental policy that dictated
the prosecution of J. X. Paikuli,
providing the same otllcial watchful
ness be exercised toward delinquents
and offenders of all shades of poli
tical belief. The organ hails the
conviction of the reverend gentle
man as "a natural and desirable
consequence." We regard this
positive assumption of guilt as some
what premature since a review by
the Supreme Court must yet pro
nounce on the question of guilt or
It is but natural that the Adver
tiser should temper its hilarity with
moral icllections on the dignity ot
law. If the Government in this
prosecution is really actuated by
pine motives, it deserves and should
leceivo great credit. lint why
should it not vindicate outraged law
itself? A lingering suspicion exists
that the employment of Mr. Kinney
as counsel removes the case from
the arena of a just piosecution to
that of a partisan .stratagem.
The llilo Kccord commits the
same fault that the Advertiser fre
quently did during the campaign.
It attacks an individual writer on
the liOi.i.KiiN personally for a speci
fic urticle appearing in this paper.
The Record misscH the mark, as the
Advertiser nearly always did, in its
imputation of authorship. That
particular article arousing the 15c
cord's ire was tirst read in the proof
sheet by the person attacked for its
fulinination. The defcateil candi
date for the Maui nobility is respon
sible for his writings in this journal
only to the editor and proprietor. It
might have been fair to presume in
the election campaign that a known
writer on a paper agreed witli its
sentiments, and to challenge him to
defend or disavow certain views
published in that paper. Hut it is
unfair and scarcely decent to name
and attack an employed writer as
Hie author of an unsigned article,
particularly in such a case as the
one in question, where the name of
the editor and proprietor of the
paper is advertised daily in its col
umns. Tlio foregoing facts ought
to bo a sulllcient reply to tlio per
sonal assault of tlio Kccord, as
showing it that the "gentlemanly
Joiinmliein" it prescribes to us may
bo nil needed for homo consiunri

OUR AMERICAN LETTER.
Svn Fii.vi3 i, Feb. s.
The general news is meagre. The
snow blockade on the Central l'aci
tio was raised on the day the Aus
tralia sailed, and the trains
have been running on slow time
since then owing to the bad condi
tion of tlio road. The blockade on
the Oregon Division of tlio Southern
Pacific lias not been broken. In tlio
Willamette Valley, ( Jregon, a great
deal of property has been destroyed
by Hoods, and the City of Portland
is partially under water, trallle bo
inir conducted by boats on streets
where the current was not too
strong. Snowslides are reporlcd In
various districts, the peculiarity of
the season being that the Atlantic
Stales and Northwest have had an
open winter, while the Pacillc Sope
has had an Arctic winter in Its
mountain rangc3 and continuous
rain ii its valleys. Now that the
weather has cleared,however, every
one is taking a morn hopeful view of
Tiie Sau Francisco papers will
give you details ot all local occur
rences, but the reception to Admiral
Kimberly by the San Fiancisco
Chamber of Commerce was an event
which deserves special mention. It
was a very successiui aiiair ami
was highly appreciated by the gal
lant veteran. The President of the
Chamber.cx-Governor Perkins, made
a felicitous address of welcome.
Congress has not made any great
progress in legislative work. The
Senate has ratified the Sainoan
Treaty and made it clear to tio Eu
ropean powers that the United
States will not tolerate national buc
caneering in the Pacillc Ocean.
Should a great European war result
in a change of owners of the various
groups now under European control
it is possible that America would
insist upon having a voice in the
settlement. Hut this is in the fu
ture, and need not disturb Hawai
ian diplomacy. Its future is assur
ed under the sheltering folds of the
star spangled banner.
The House of Representatives has
been skirmishing about rules.
Speaker Rood resolved to put an end
to filibustering, and reversed the
practiccof the Ilouso since Congress
was established. It was the prac
tice, in making a quorum, to count
only members who voted. The mi
nority, by abstaining from voting,
although under the Speaker's eye,
could thus force an adjournment
and delay business unless the domi
nant party happened to have a quo
rum of Its own, which was rarely
the case. The Speaker ruled that a
constitutional quorum was formed
by members present, whether voting
or not, and when a division showed
the number voting short of a quo
run he named members of the De
mocratic party present sulllcient to
complete the list. The new rules
sustain this ruling, and will work
well in practice. The Constitution
requires a quorum to be present and
says nothing about voting; the
practice vas to ignore the presence
of members who refrained from vot
ing. There was no sense in this
practice and its disuse will go far
towards raising the House in public
estimation, because the Speaker can
now always keep it down to busi
ness The Republicans will have a
good working majority when all the
election contests have been decided.
The news brought by the W. G.
Irwin of the death ol Judge Preston
was received with regret by the Ha
waiian colony and the numerous
personal friends of the deceased jur
ist in this city. His death leaves a
void in the judiciary of the kingdom
it will be dillleuit to till, owing to
the groat experience and legal acu
men ot the deceased.

The Sugar Trust gave out as a
pointer in Wall street that the oppo
sition of the Sprcckcls refinery had
been arranged by a mutual under
standing and on the strength of this
lie roped in a few more speculators
at higher prices for their "stiffs,"
but when the truth came nut that no
such arrangement had been made or
would be made by Mr. Sprcckcls,
the certificates again slumped, and
there was tall swearing among the
This stylo of doing business has
been pursued by the Trust people
for some lime back. Having been
diiven to despair almost by the
Sprcckcls opposition at Philadelphia,
they deliberately issue lying state
ments through the press to tlio effect
that a compromise lias been arranged
with Clans Sprcckcls, or that his
hostility to the Trust is only as
sumed to impose upon tlio people,
or that he has sold out to tlio Trust
and Is in the swim. These state
ments appearing in various shapes
In newspapers of standing outside
New York gain for I hem a measure
of credence for a time, more es
pecially as it is not possible to make
prompt denial. Tlio nltimato effect,
however, has been to heighten the
popular dislike of the Sugar Trust
mid it serves to fcliotv to what ilespi-
crtblo methods onco honorable mer
chants can stoop to save themselves
when they enter upon crooked and
illegal ways of making money.
Clans Sprockets has stated that ho
has not joined the Trust, that he
has not compiomiscd with thcTriiit,
or listened lo their appeals for a
cessation of hostilities. He is keep
ing light along in his own direct and
manly way, making sugar and sell
ing it at a profit under the Trust
quotations while the Trust is losing
money, l here are two reasons lor
this--he has belter machinery and
can make atigar cheaper than the
Trust ; he is Ins own board of direc
tors, piesidonl, and vice-president,
treasurer and secretary, and he
works harder than any man in his
employ, while the Sugar Tiust, pays
$77.,00l) a year in salaries to sixteen
olllcers who do nothing, fluee of
whom leceivo 8100,000 a year each;
six others receive uO,0()0 each;
and yet seven others $'J.i,000 a year
each. All this is belore the working
daft' Is reached at all.
P.efore Clans Sprcckcls started out
to light tlio Trust the conspirators
were able lo divide these vast nuns
among thcmeivcs as salaries ami
pav dividends upon $.10,000,000, of
uliich at (east S:iu,000,000 was
"water," by cinching the American
people, but now that they are forced
to make sugar and sell ft at a loss
and that their ocrtifiuatos havo no
solid basis of value, they llnd them
selves reduced to the position of
-.topping their own supplies or with
holding dividends. The tirst, is not
to be thought ol, and it will be seen
that the "forty thieves," Iins or
more, who eniistilllto jlie Kmjar
Trust, have sworn to Muiid by each
other as against the public and cer
A despatch from New York, Jan.
i'.'i, confirms one sent in my former
letter giving the rumor that an ur
gent meeting was being held at lios
Kiii to advise measures of defence,
together with Secretary Searle's de
nial and lawyer Parsons' sneer at
criminal proceedings. The meeting
was held at New York, however,
and was for the purpose slated.
Public opinion is fast ripening for a
prosecution. The time is about
past when the possession of money
could shield criminals in New York,
and it is just possible that the emi
nently respectable scoundrels who
conspired to plunder the American
people on the price of sugar may be
sent to Sing Sing as an example to
other criminals of their class all
over the country.
The receiver question has not
been ruled upon by Judge Wallace
at San Francisco yet.
Latest advices from Cuba state
that the sugar crop will be short,
on some estates as high as thirty
per cent. The aggregate shortage
js not stated.

The House Committee on Naviga
tion and Fisheries lias been hearing
representatives of the shipping and
shipbuilding interests on the subsidy
tpieslion, with tlio view of reporting
a bill on that subject. The Oceanic
Steamship Company was ably repre
sented by ex-Congressman Fclton,
whose familial ity with the company
enabled him to make out a strong
case. Kvery sign points to early
and favorable action when the
House settles down to business.
Nevertheless the new administra
tion is pursuing tlio same shabby
and niggardly policy regarding
American steamship lines as its pre
decessor. When the snow blockade
stopped Ihe railroad mail service to
Oregon the Post Ollico department
ashed that the Pacific Coast Steam-
snip company wnuui carry um wrc
gon mail weekly. The company,
recognizing the depleted state of the
I'liitcd States Treasury, asked $600
per week. The railroad was paid
8'2,0;'i0 weekly; but the steamship
company's demand was re
jected as extravagant. Thereupon
the seven-knot lcvenue cutter Push
was lilted out as a mail boat at a
cost in excessnf what tlio Noith
Pacific Company asked for the ser
vice. The company's steamer sailed
witli passengers but without a mail.
Next day the Hush set out, and after
crawling to Columbia river could
not cross the bar and went on to
Seattle, 'at the head ot Puget Sound,
in the belief that the mail could be
sent overland to its destination.
She is now somewhere on tlio high
seas between the Strait of Kuca and
the Golden Gate, and has the Ore
gon mail witli her. Meanwhile '.he
Santa Hosn, which sailed the day
belore the Push, has returned from
Portland and is about to sail again
for the same destination. This illus
trated the management of ocean
postal affairs by the Foiled Stales
Post Olllce, and shows that Mr.
Wannamakcr, the new Postmaster
General, is no improvement on
Vilas of Democratic fame. Mow a
great commercial nation can tolerate
such otllcial incompetence passetli
all understanding. The pernicious
stupidity of Wannatuaker and his
advisers lias greatly injured the
business interests of San Francisco
in Oregon and Washington State.
