FRIDAY, AUGUST 22, 1890.
In our report of yesterday morn
ing's legislative proceedings, the
statement, "The bill passed," was
accidentally left out after the dis
cussion of the salmon license hill.
"The situation on the tariff has
not radically changed since last
mail but change has taken place has
been to strengthen Blaine's recipro
city proposals." So says our San
To say that "the Hawaiiaus nre
easily played on" is correct, just as
it is correct to say the sarao thing of
the bulk of the people of any coun
try. But to suppose that Hawaiians
are more easily "played on" than
the rank and file of peoples in gen
eral is an error. Name a country
where the demagogue cannot easily
"play on" the masses.
The Military Committee of the
House arc of opinion that "for the
peace and safety of the country" no
such military organization as the
Honolulu Rifles should he aliened
to exist, and therefore recommend
its disbandment. In the opinio
and in the recommendation there is
a large and powerful concurring
public sentiment, which is gratified
by the committee's report.
Editor Bblixtix :
Allow me space to remark that ns
there seems to be a general misap
prehension prevalent throughout the
kingdom in regard to the authority
of the President of the Board of
Health, I desire to slate that the
President is the executive ofllccr of
the Board and in no way responsi
ble fr its acts, not even havintr a
vote at its meetings, excepting as
presiding ofllcer in case of a tie.

In the Advertiser of August 21,
"Temperance" says: "It is evident
that "Erin Go Braugh" wrote the
article in the Bulletin of this even
ing solely for the sake of sayiug
something unpleasant." Wrong
there, Mr. Temperance, nothing was
farther from my thoughts than to
bay or create anything whatever
unpleasant. Fuittiermore to show
and convince you that my intentions
are sincere and houcet in this liquor
controversy; if you can persuade
the government to take hold of and
lun the liquor business, I will un
fold to you a plun if you and others
have the will to carry it out, where
by the church and the liquor busi
ness will after a short trial, by mutu
al consent, be drawn into close con
nection, and the church itself shall
and will happily acknowledge, that
(rent good has at last come out of

REPLY TO T.W.I?.
Editor Bdixktin :
T. W. "R. has done rae the honor
to reply to ray Inst. I will remind
him that I still adhero to what I
uaid. He seems to think the Gov
ernment is doing enough when it
grants a fifteen or twenty acre taro
pateh in Kona, when there are thou
sands of acres of crown and school
lands on this island, not 25 miles
from Honolulu, occupied by a fow
cattle only. Why not take thiB
land and mkc homestead lots of it,
and thereby advance the country V I
am afraid T. W. It. is a little jealous
of the Government helping the rail
way. Where would California have
been to-day if its government had
not helped such enterprises? Rail
ways were the makiug of California,
and a railway around this island
woujd make it what it can nerer
otherwise be. I say again it is pro
per policy for the Government to
assist to open up some of the finest
lands in the country. With a rail
way Honolulu could bo supplied
with all the bay and green feed
needed, and many other things, now
imported from California by torn of
thousands of dollars' worth.
Outside Certificate Holders "in
The American Refinery
Mot a Trust Asset.
Exchange of Cerl'dottes
Sax Francisco, Aug. 10.
Details of the programme of the
Sugar Truit which have come to
hand since the departure of the Ma
rlposo's mail confirm nil thnt was
set forth in the last letter on the
subject. It appears as if it had
been deliberately planucd that the
holders of sugar certificates on the
Islauds and any whero abroad should
be prevented expressing any opinion
on tho plans of the Tiustces. Suit
was brought in King's County Su
preme Court (Brooklyn) on the 22d
July, and certificate holders were
required to file an answer to the
complaint ut twenty days. As the
first available mail for Honolulu is
by the Australia, August l.'ith, it is
clear that the holdcis of sujiar trust
certificates on tho Hawaiian Islands
are shut out. Nor are they made
parties to the suit in any way. The
suit is n fiicndly one, brought by
Harry O. lluvemeycr, FrnnzO. Mat
thicssen, John K. Seailes, Jr., Ju
lius A. Stursberg, Theodore A
Havemcyer, Joseph 11. Thomas.
John Jurgcnscn, John E. Parsons,
William F. Havemcyer, William
Dick, and Charles O. Foster, and
the defendants arc the Brooklyn
Sugar Refining Company, the Hnve
meyers & Elder Sugar Refin
ing Company, the Donner and
De Castro Sugar Refining Company,-
the F. O. Matthiessen &
Welchers Sugar Refining Company,
the Havemeyer Sugar Refining Com
pany, the Dick & Alcyer Company,
the Oxnard Brothers Company, the

ton Sugar Refining Company, the

State Sugar Refining Company, fhe

pany, the St. Louis Sugar Refining
Company, the Planters' Sucar Re-.
fining Company, the Louisiana Su
gar Refining Comdanp, Isidor
Wormser, Simon Wormser, John P.
Spalding, Henry It. Reed and M.
Messrs. Wormser of New York, and
Messrs. Spalding and Reed of Bostou
have been made parties-defendant,
as representing outside certificate
holders, but they arc in the swim
and of course will offer no objection
to the Trustees' plan of winding-up,
distribution and reorganization.
It will be noted as significant that
the American Sugar Refinery is not
one of the concerns over which tho
Trustees claim to have any control.
In fact, it is treated as if it were not
Trust propci ly. This is probably
owing to the litigation in this State,
over the American Refinery's char
ter, in which Havemeyer & Elder
swore that they had bought the con
cern for $750,000, the Trust having
given 01,250,000 m certificates for
it. It does not appear upon tho
record that the Trust was paid
8750,000 in their own certificates,
hut this is probable; anyhow. the
transaction shows a dead loss to the
Trust of half a million dollars, and
the American Refinery disappears
from the assets of the Sugar Trust
as completely as if it had never be
longed to it. Judgo Wallace, no
doubt, does not believe this was a
bona fide transaction, and holds
that the American Refinery is part
of the Trust's assets. The Supreme
Court is yet to be heard from on thu
subject. Should its decision sus
tain Judgo Wallace there would be
something left for distribution after
tho Eastern and Southern refineries
have been sold for a nominal figure
to their original owners under an
order of the Court, and certificate
holders are called upon to pocket
It is further clear that the plau of
reorganization does not contem
plate taking in outside certificate
holders. The origiual members of
the Trust will reorganize as a cor
poration and issue stock, but there
is no intention disclosed to ex
change such stock for Sugar Trust
"stiffs." This is evident from tho
complaint on flic, and explanations
by John E. Searles, jun. After re
citing tho result of the litigation
over the North River Refining Com
pany, tho complaint goes on to state
that tho other refineries organized
under tho laws of Now Ycrlc nre
equally liable to havo their charters
withdrawn, therefore to avoid com
pulsory winding up under suits by
the Attorney-General it had been
resolved to voluntarily disincorpo
rate said refinery companies.
The deed under which tho Sugar
Trust has operated is appended to
the complaint. Tho suit is brought
in King's County because tho prop
erty of the trust is mainly situated
Thero has been a rumor on Wall
Street that tho Trustees took hurried
action to prevent a reorganization
by outsiders, and as they now con
trol a majority of tho stock the issu
ance of a circular to certificate hold
ers is only a matter of form. Thuy
can tarry their plans through whe
ther there he dissent or not,

San FnAXcisco, Aug. 1 1.
"Bmdstrccts," of July 2G, has
au editorial on the reorganization of
tho Sugar Trust, and has this to say
of tho public confession of fraud
and illegal action by tho Trustees:
"It is noticeable that tho suit on
which tho intended reorganization is
based takes as its starting point the
admitted illegality of the tiust
organization "and the trust deed
under which the trustees net. The
complaint of tho trustees themselves
stales that the principles of law de
clared by the Court of Appeals in
the North River Refinery suit apply'
to and endanger all the other pro
perties of the trust in the state of
New York. All tho other subsidiary
corporations are subject to tho for
feiture of their charters and dissolu
tion, and thus alt the property and
rights centered In the trust are liobhi
to aciiuus danger and loss unless
immediate re I id is afforded in the
form of a sale of the property and
assets and the distribution of the
proceeds among the parties in in
terest under the trust deed. This
indeed, is a remuikable admission
by those insliuuiental in forming it
in tegard to the organization under
which $50,000,000 more or less of
pioperty has been administered."
The. New York Times, July 20lh,
states that there nre serious differ
ence! and disputes among the Sugar
Tiust reorganize! s. The two parlies
arc very bitter. One of them wants
a receiver appointed, alleging that
only under thu Court's direction can
a safe oiganizalion be effected. The
other party wants to proceed by
mutual agreement, as in the original
Trust, with certificate deposits
merely ; and in cither case there arc
nice tees and neat commissions for
insiders and their friends. One
conspicuous Stock Exchange broker
with a big block of Stock us a basis
of opposition to the mutual agree
ment plan sold thousands of shares
yesterday of the stock in the open
market. The war has only begun,
and Wall .street looks with interest
for the result.
Consideiable difficulty was ex
perienced in securing the co-operation
of u reputable banking house
to join tho committee of reorganiza
tion, hut that was ovcrromo at last
and Kidder. Pea body & Co., lend
their names for a small considera
tion of 8250,000. This is the sum
publicly quoted and the banking
house neither admit nor deny the
report. It is clear that with all
their skill and command of capital
the Sugar Trust is iu deep water.
The "inside" is keeping up the
price of certificates. If they did
not do so it would lie impossible to
carry out their new plans, and they
might find themselves forced into
an honest accounting with their
