Lo Kronco-Cnllfornien lias taken
the appellation " missionary," as
applied to the Minister of tlio Inte
rior, In its literal sense, l'or the
information of readers abroad it
should 1)0 said that His Excellency
is not in "holy orders."
Arthur Johnstone, editor of the
Klele, appeared before Police Jus
tice Foster this morning to answer a
charge of libel. Deputy Marshal
Chas. Creigbton represented the
Crown, and V. V. Ashford the
defendant. Hy consent the case was
continued till Thursday, as the Gov
crnment was not ruady. The ac
cused editor cannot find out what
constituted the alleged libel, further
than that the information says it
was published on March 1. Proba
bly the Government will be able to
put its finger on the identical sore
spot by Thursday.
Can the Advertiser furnish its
authority for the statcmer.t that the
report of the House Ways and
Means Committee, recommending
abolition of the sugar duly and the
imposition of a bounty to domestic
producers instead, is signed by all
the members of the committee both
Democrats and Republicans':' The
Washington despatch that we have
seen in several Han Francisco papers
states that all the Republican mem
bers, simply, have agreed to the re
commendation. Our .San Francisco
correspondent, who is in the best
possible position to obtain the latest
hiigar news, states the same thing.
Our contemporary in any case is
scarcely justified in putting such a
lugubrious aspect on affairs as its
recent articles on tariff and treaty
matters display. It is exceedingly
improbable that Congress will take
such a radical departure in fiscal
policy as the Advertiser seems to
apprehend as inevitable. If it does
this coutitiy will only have lo make
the best of it and congratulate itself
on the killing of the treaty project
attempted to be foistedon it by the
Cabinet, which would have prevent
ed us from making the best of a
situation that our people will hope
lo the last may not arrive.
OUR AMERICAN LETTER.

Colonel NnrerKelH Looking at
tiuitai- LiamlH In Plorlla- Hawai
ian Muc&r HIiIjummI to Sew Or
leans Sax Kkaxcisco, Mar. 8.
We arc beginning to realize the
injurious effects of the protracted
tainy season in parades of unem
ployed and the recognition of all
classes of a great deal by distress
among woiking people. This is so
unusual that it attracts attention.
At the same time it should be borne
U tlio same time u biioiiiu ue uo.il-
n mind that nearly all the Boating
labor of the State drifts into San
i.u r ii. a winin iturtci iriTn vnti
Francisco during the winter months,
and the labor di if t began earlier and
continued later this season than in
any previous one. The unemployed
of the permanent city .population
are, however, more numerous than
usual at this time of year, but theie
is every indication of the pressure
being relieved by the beginning of
building and impiovement works In
The closing or the American He
finery by the Receiver threw the en
tire labor force at that establish
ment out of work, and the Tiust
people endeavored to make capital
out of the incident to influence the
decision of the Supreme Court on
the appeal case bcfoic it. Everyone
sympathizes with the men who were
unfortunate enough to be employed
by the Trust, but nobody in reality
sympathizes with tiie monopolists
except those who hope to make
something out of them. Hut while
labor is thus distressed involun
tarily, what can lie said of mon who
deliberately organize a strike in the
lion trade by which at least 1200
skilled workmen and laborers arc
now idle? Yet this is precisely
what has happened thiough the Iron
Moulders' Union endeavoring to en
force its rules as to production,
wages, hours of labor, and appren
tices. They were earning Sfl.oO per
day of ten hours, and arbitrarily
limited the amount of work each
man should turn out in a day with
out reference to his ability to do
more. One apprentice only was al
lowed to every eight journeymen a
policy which, in America generally,
gives the advantage to trained Euro
pean workmen, because American
youths are prohibited from learning
trades and thus making tlio counti y
independent of foreigners for its
skilled labor. Tho strike promises
to be a long and bitter one, as the
employers are fully determined to
run their own business and the
Moulders' Union is quite as deter
mined that they will only do it ill
one particular way. The men on
strike will draw S per week from
the general fund. This action will
gieatly Increase the local distress.
Another dilllculty has arisen in re
gard to the unskilled labor seeking
employment. Two dollars per day
is the standaid wages and tho men
decline to accept less.
tiu: suu.vit notrr.
There has been quite a lively
newspaper campaign on the Sugar
Trust's endeavor to buHdose the
Supreme Court through the agency
of the Chronicle and retail grocers
who deal with J'ilman & Hendel,
Levi & Co., and the other Sugar
Trust brokers. Small letailers, to
the number of ninety, signed a
memorial praying tho Supreme
Court in so many words to reverse
Judge Wallace's decision and per
mit the Trust jobbers to get hold of
sugar from the American Refinery
to supply their customers, at the
same time cieating the impression
that theie was no sHgar to bo had
from any other source. This line of
attack was promptly met by inter
views with tho principal jobbers,
candy manufacturers, and retail
grocers, who command the leading
business of the city, and who show
ed that there was an abundant sup
ply available at the California Kc
fiilcry and at fair and reasonable
prices. Mr. A. H. Sprockets also
answered his assailants in a way
they will not soon forget.
Tho writ of mandate issued by
the Supreme Court to Judge Wal
lace and Receiver Rcddy, mentioned
last mail, as well as the contempt
proceedings against tho same gontlc
men, came up for consideration on
the !!d March. .The contempt case
took precedence. Judge Wallace
appeared to answer on his own be
half, and ex-Judge Sullivan appear
ed for Receiver Heddv. Sam Wil
son had Havemoyer & Elder's side
in charge, the contempt proceedings
being instituted by them. Argu
ment was continued on the -1th and
."ith on the writ of prohibition, and
an adjournment was then had till
the 7th, owing to the dentil of Mer
vyn Donobue, son-in-law of Judge
Wallace, as this sad event prevented ,
his attendance in Court. The argu
ment was resumed on the 7th, and
adjourned to the 10th, when Judge
Wallace would be in attendance.
The chances arc that proceedings
for contempt will be taken against
the signets of the address to the
Supreme Court, and that those who
prepared and caused it to lie pub
lished will bo similarly dealt with.
It is a gross act of contempt, in
tended to influence the Court in
determining the appeal pending be
fore it from Judge Wallace's ruling.
Mr. Mott, manager of the American
Refinery, has come out in print pro
testing against the wrong that is
being done lb Ilavcmeycr & Elder,
alleging that there is no American
Refinery Company, that 11. & E. arc
sole owners of the refinery, and that
they operate it for their personal
use and profit. If this statement be
true there is a pretty considerable
swindle lying around somewhere.
The American Refinery Company
sold out to the Sugar Trust for
1,2.10,000 in payment of which
Trust certificates to that amount
were issued. Now comc3 tlio man
ager of the Refinery and states that
Havemoyer & Elder, tho principal
members of the Sugar Trust, bought
the property for private account,
from the Trust of course, the con
sideration being 8")00,000. This is
one of four trust refineries similaily
claimed by tho founders and man-
agcra of the Trust as their property
. puiclias0 ln otllcr words as
Ui u od the most
i . ... '
valuable of the Trust refineries to
themselves. This would account lor
the enormous shrinkage of Trust
property, shown in the proposed re
organization bclieme, and demon
strates that the methods within the
Trust itself did not differ materially
from the methods by which its man
agers fleeced the outside public by
manipulating its certificates on Wall
street. Original ccitificatc holders
not in the ring were plundered as
unscrupulously as outsiders. There
was rascally impartiality in their
tactics throughout. If Havemeyer
it Elder have nothing to do witlt the
Amei lean Refinery Company why do
they defend the action against it?
Mr. Mott did not strengthen his
case by attacking Mr. Sprockets
and attempting to belittle his re
finery, nor did he mtykc himself solid
with the working men by describing
the allusions to the Trust shutting
down fifteen Eastern refineries and
turning thousands of men adrift us
"vaporings." This is a fact which
workingmen will nut and should not
overlook. It is clear, however, that
he is becoming desporate, for in nn
interview ho threatened to take pos
session of tho refinery by force. In
his letter ho is more pacific, relying
upon the Court to do justice, as
doubtless it will. One thing is very
evident, that the Sugar Trust is not
popular here, and that while Mr.
Mott can have newspaper thunder
manufactured for him while he pays
for it, tiie people arc solid against
UI.AUS SI'ltKCKKI.3 OX TOP.
Colonel Sprockets visited Florida
lust week to take a much needed
rest, after tho constant strain of
starting his vast refinery, and at
tending to tlio details of organizing
its business. Having got it into
good working order, and presented
tho case of the American sugar in
dustry to Congress, lie went to
Florida, as already stated, for re
laxation. A despatch ftom Flotidel-
phitt) tt city of tho peninsular" stale,
appeared in the Examiner to the
effect that the American Sugar King
was combining business with pleas
tiro, and that lie had about con
cluded to estublUh a sugar planta
tion on a largo scale on the land re
claimed from the Everglades, of
which there are tlnce million acres.
The despatch fin liter stated that
Colonel Spreckels was accompanied
by Philadelphia capitalists who were
joining him in the enterprise. The
new plantation was to be the largest
in Amoiica. It has been demon
strated that this now land in Flo
rida, which is well watered, carries
far heavier cane crops than Louisi
ana land after liberal treatment by
The Philadelphia Press lias an
article which shows that Clans
Spreckels has contiol of the Eastern
sugar business through owning the
bulk of the visible supply of sugar,
lie has over ten thousand tons of
raw sugar on hand, whereas the
Trust had only 1,700 ions, and was
compelled to replenish stock by buy
ing from Mr. Spreckels at enhanced
pi ices. This lias been a ficquont
experience of the Ti nst since Mr.
Spreckels went into business East.
On the Pacific Coast the Trust
docs not seem to bo more fortunate.
The American Refinery has been a
fortnight closed, and no man can
tell when its fires will bo lighted.
The Trust managers liavo only about
two weeks' supply on hand, and
they arc evidently pieparing for a
loinr pctiod of idleness because '.c
cargo of the b'irk Ceylon to Steele &
Co., which arrived ftom the Islands
a few days ago, has been shipped to
New Orleans, which is also the in
tended destination of all subsequent
cargoes. The cargo of the Klikilat
is now being shipped lo New Or
leans. Two small cargoes which
arrived bi'forc the Ceylon had been
stored in outside warehouses, by
Havemeyer and his associates, who
evidently tliinl. that it will cost less
in future to ship Hawaiian sugar by
rail to New Orleans' refinery than
store it for an indefinite time in San
Francisco. Anyhow they may look
at it the process is expensive, and
involves a heavy loss, while the
California refinery is running stead
ily and making money.

Washington advices arc rather
discouraging for the sugar interests
of the Islands. It is stated that the
Republican members of the House
Committee on Ways and Means will
icporta tariff bill abolishing the
duty on sugar. This would be a
complete reversal of Republican po
licy, but the inconsistency is sought
to be temoyed by a proposal lo give a
bonus of two cents per pound on
American sugar. This does not
meet the case, however. Louisiana
is the principal cane growing State,
although Florida is coming forward,
but the quantity raised in both
States is small as compared with the
total consumption. The abolition
of the sugar duty would stimulate
production abroad where cheap la
bor is available, and the result
would bo that the market would be
Hooded with cheap raws against
which home-planters could not com
pete, handicapped as they arc with
heavy taxes arid high wages, and
forbidden to import or employ con
The Island planters do not seem
to be anywliere in the fiht, except
through Clans- Spreckels, who ap
peared before the committee and
made a strong argument for contin
uing tiie sugar duty. Hut nothing
hns been done to influence public
opinion, or create u popular senti
ment in tiie East favoring the tieaty,
which a free sugar tariff would pruc
ticiilly abrogate. This might have
been done witlt effect, but it is no
torious that Ihc Eastern Sugar Tutsi,
us represented' by Havemcycrs,
Scarle, & Co., arc in fayor of free
sugar, and therefore indifferent to
the planters' interests. What they
want is cheap sugar, and as they
have not a dollar invested in tlio
Hawaiian Islands they arc without
any inducement to work for the su-
gar growers. On the contrary, an
represented at San Francisco by the
Chronicle Ihcy are bitterly and de
terminedly hostile to the Hawaiian
treaty, and think, with every feliow
of probability, Unit by removing tlio
duly from raw sugar they would
have their Hawaiian friends and
patrons at their mercy. Diplomacy
cantiot help tho Hawaiian planters.
It needs influences of a wholly dif
ferent character to do any good.
Should the free sugar schedule pass
Congress it will stimulate foieign
production, as already stated, and
cheap coolie labor and exemption
from taxation in many sugar pro
ducing countries will tell, in the
world's competition for tlio Ameri
can market, very heavily against
