TOO MUCH EXCITEMENT.
No doubt theie are burglars in
Honolulu and beeinl bursilarios
have been committed. There is no
denying these facta The)- are too
well authenticated Nevertheles,
many people, in our belief, under
ihe excitement of the tael, aie ear
ned beyond them into a kind of
panic-stricken condition which leads
them to magnify little events, in
significant and harmless in them
selves, into distinctly suspicious cir
cumstances. For instance, such an
oulinary and every night occurrence
as two men seen standing and con
versing together on a public street
in the suburbs, near a private resi
dence, is interpreted to mean that
those two men are planning an at
tack on the premises near by. Or
if a man, meeting you in the street
after dusk, politely asks the time,
he is put, down as a suspicious char
acter. Or if a dog strolls into a yard
in search of something to devour,and
happens to make a little rumpus
in the act, the piesencc of u burglar
is at once put down as a positive
tact. And so we might go on mul
tiplying illustrations. There was
iuite a stir last night in a populous
neighborhood on the slopes of
Punchbowl, for which there appears
to have been no sufllcient ground.
A noise of some kind was heard in a
yard or somewhere on the outside of
a particular house. The noise may
have been caused by a human be
ing, or it may have been caused by
a canine, or it may have been caus
ed by a no more substantial agent
than the wind. There is no evi
dence, so far as we can learn, to show
who or what the agency was, or even
whether there was any noise more
than was created by an active ima
gination. Anyhow, the tcsult was
that the occupant of the house
rushed out and began to fire away
as if attacking an army of in
vaders, until the whole neighbor
hood was aroused. A dozen or more
shots were scattered around in thin
manner. No burglar was seen and
fortunately no innocent person living
in the neighborhood was hurt, as
there certainly was danger of being
done in u vicinity so populous. Now,
it is not only time to put a stop to
actual burglary, but also to Biich
free and indiscriminate use of fire
arms. Dangerous weapons are be
ing handled too freely altogether by
persons not authorised to use them.
Some innocent person will probably
get hurt if this kind of thing is per
mitted to continue.
THE TARIFF BILL.
San PraNCibco, Sept. t.
The Senaln is debating the sugar
schedule of the Tariff bill, the im
mediate uihjeet of debate being
senator Hale's leciprocity amend
ment, of which ho had given notice
last June. It i. almost a foregone
conclusion that the principle of reci
procity will be embodied in the Tar
iff bill, although a very strong fight
will be made to pass the free sugar
Senator Aldrich of ltliode Island
gave notice of the following new
section in the Tariff bill on tho :8th
Section 2. That exemptions fiom
duty of sugar, molanscs, coffee, tea
and hides provided for in this act
are made with a view to secure a.
iccipiocal tiade with countries pro
ducing thoso articles, and for this
purpoao on and after the first day
of July, 1891, whenever and so often
as the President shall bo satisfied
ihe government and country pro
ducing and cxpoiting miguis, mo
iusses, coffee, tea and hlden, jaw
and uueured, or itny such articles,
bus imposed duties or oilier c.v ac
tions upon tho agriculture or othor
products of the United ritalUH,whieh,
in view of the free Introduction of
such sugar, molasses, cotfee, tea
and hides into the United Mates, he
nuiy deem to be reciprocally un
equal and unjust he hhall have the
power nnd it "hall be his duty to
suspend bv proclamation to that
etfect the provisions of this act re
lating to the free introduction of
such sugar, molasses, coffee, tea
and hides, the production of such
country, for such time as he shall
deem just, and in such case and
during such suspension duttPS shall
be levied collected anit ymm upon
sugar, molasses, coffee, tea and
hides, the products of or exports
from such designated conntrj as
follows: All sugars not above No
U! Dutch standard in color, shall
pay a duly on their polariscopie
test as follows: All sugars not
aboeNo. ltt Dutch stnudaiii in
color, all tank bottoms, syrups of
cane iuice, or of beet juice uielada,
concentrated uielada, concrete and
concentrated nv.lassos, testing by
polariscope not above 7' degiees,
seven-tenths of one cent per pound,
and for every additional degree oi
fraction of a degree shown by polari
scopic test, two hundredths ot one
cent a pound additional.
All sugars above No. 13 Dutch
standard in color shall be classified
bv the Dutch standard of color and
pay duty as follows: All sugar
above number I!) and not above Id
Dutch standaid of color IjJ cents
per pouud; all sugar above No. 10
and not above No. 20 of color, 1
cents per pound ; all sugars above
No. 20, Dutch standard of eolor, 2
cents per pound. Molasses, testing
about oG degrees, I cents per gal
lon. Sugar dramings and sugar
swienin-is shall be subject to duly
cither as molasses or sugar as the
case may be, according to a polari
scopio lef-l. On coffee thiee cents
per pound. On tea ten cents' per
pound. Hides, raw or unenred,
whether dry, sailed oi pickled;
Angora goat skins,, raw without
wool, unmanufactured; asses skins,
raw or unmanufactured, and skins,
execnt sheen skins with wool. l.V
cents per pound.
A debate will be taken on this
amendment also, and the outcome
will probablv be a compromise sec
tion embodying Maine's views, as
expressed in his great speccli on re
cipiocity, at Watcrvillc, Maine, Au
gust 21llh, when he opened the Re
publican campaign. This speech is
well worth perusal quite apait from
its bearing upon the sugar duty is
sue which so vitally affects Hawai
Till: SUGAK TltLST's slJIIIAIh.
The following despatch which ap
peared in our morning papers,
throws a sidelight, upon the methods
of the Sugar Lrust:
Washington, August 2."lh. In
passing on the tariff bill the Senate
has got in sight of the sugar sche
dule. At the same time the sugar
ti ust comes in sight. Originally the
trust was opposed to anything more
than a reduction of 20 per cent in
sugar duties, and this reduction
would have gone largely into its
pockets. It fought the action of
the House in making sugar up to
No. 10 free, and persuaded the Se
nate Finance Committee to place the
line at No. 13, and give it addi
tional protection on other grades.
This meant free sugar for the trust,
but not for the consumers. The
trust, harine got the bill in tins
shape, was opposed to any lccipro-
city proposition. It is, therefore,
lighting to have the tariff bill pass
the Senate in the form reported by
the Finance Committee. A large
number of Republican Senators have
agreed to support Senator Allison
in the fight to have grades up to
No. 10 made free, and it was
thought Senator Aldrich, on behalf
of the Finance Committee, would
prevent any struggle by ordering an
amendment when he puts in his re
ciprocity provision. Hut the trust
is exerting itself to prevent this. To
draw the free line at No. 13, and
then to direct the President to reim
pose the duty in the sugar-producing
countries did not reciprocate it
within a given time, would be ridi
culous. It would cause the country
to lose all interest in the subject of
reciprocity, because tho impression
would go out that this was in the
interest of the trust. Genuine re
ciprocity, however, would be the
hardest blow that could be dealt the
monopoly that contiols the refining
MOIin TltOl'BI.r. AJILAIl VOU Till'. TKl'ST.
The work of reorganization is pro
ceeding slowly, the Sugar Trust
being a divided family of conspira
tors. The Wall Street Daily Newn
of August 2Cth, has the
article which is self-explanatory
billing sua Ait.
JJoston sold some thousands of
aliures of sugar yesterday. The
oulcrs to dispose of the certificates
wcro received right at the opening
of the market, and to tho execution
of these commissions was due the
decline of lg per cent, whicji subse
quently took place. The buying,
however, was on concessions by
those interests which for some time,
who have been Identified with the
insiders, and accompanying the
sales was a rumor to tho effect that
the next dividend would be consider
ably delayed, if not actually passed,
A reporter of The Wall Street Daily
News called iipflii )!. I, llollins it
C'p., who were given up qs authori
ties in tho matter, but he was told
by a number of the firm that they
hud absolutely no information, and
that the story of the intended action
by the Hoard of Diicntors wan sim
ply nn opinion, with nothing to sub
slant.ito it In Hie inalUr of facts.
For some reason Mr. John R.
l'assos, of counsel for the Sugar
Trutt Hellnen . got mixed up with
Hie minor. Howie ititeiviewul b
our rcpoiter, and made this l iH
incut: "I hae been out of town hn fuu
weeks, and have only just leluined.
All I can ay is that I am not m a
poMtlon to know one way or the
other what the Tiustees nf the
Sugar Trust will do at their meeting
You may state emphatically that I
would not be engaged in any affair
which would hamper or harass thr
directors in nny ininner. 1 do not

are to be deplored which look lo Un
making ot trouble either for security
holders or the trustees of a corpoi
sillon. I sold out my Sugar coitlll
cntes some lime ago, but bought
them back acain at a lower price. I
hold them now because I believe in
their merit, no rrattcr what the
market pi ice for them may be. I
am not interested d'uectly or indi
icclly in any litigation which has for
its aim the making of trouble for
any of the parties interested in ihe
Sugar Trust corporation.
Clearly it is not nil plain sailing
with the' captains of the Trust, and
well informed people anticipate a
loin: and bitter legal light befoie Un
loose ends of the Sugar Tiust con
spiracy have all been gathered up
and securely knotted.
The San Francisco Examiner con
tained the billowing item, August
31st: Among Ihe Alameda's passen
gers from Honolulu were the wives
of Lieutenants Qualtrough and
Hollis, Paymaster liurtis and Sur
geon Weber, all of the Chni lesion,
who came here to join their hus
bands. All four of the ladies weie
ill during the entire voyage up. and
two of them were a fleeted to teais
when informed that the Chaileston
was ordered back to Honolulu.

A SCANDALOUS AFFAIR.
On Saturday night hist a most
scandalous affair happened on Nuu
anu street, near the Cosmopolitan
saloon. A row was started between
some half-whites and sailors from a
man-of-war, which the police weie
called upon to quell. One sailor
was taken away without much
trouble while the other showed some
resistance, whereupon the police
freely used their clubs and also al
lowed the crowd of kanakas to kick
and otherwise malticat him, instead
of trying to get him peacefully
away. 'The man's clothes were
torn off him, and he was most un
mercifully beaten. .Such conduct
as this from the guardians of the
peace will not tend to inspire confi
dence in that body, for instead of
trying to quell a drunken disturb
ance of this sort they encourage it
by allowing their prisoner to be
most brutally assaulted.
Jf it becomes necessary to aircst
a man for any offence in such a
locality as that spoken of, and the
police find that they are unable to
make the arrest unaided, there are
always a sufllcient number of citi
zens who can be called upon for as
sistance, and thus avoid such a
scandalous and brutal outrage as
witnessed on this occasion.

"Hail Columbia" may think he
has scored a point, but J am satis
fled that very few who lead his brag
ging letter will fail to catch its. leal
It is comparatively easy to pose
as a yankee, but the tone of the let
ter is so unlike what we expect to
find from that good old stock of New
England, that 1 for one have grave
doubts as to the right of "ITail Co
lumbia to call himself a "Nutmeg."
In the first place, "Hail Colum
bia" begins by assuming a false
hood. Nobody in any section of the
communitj' understands the term
missionary to mean "Americans liv
ing here." I will admit the term is
misapplied on these islands; the
word has become a stigma. Tho9e
individuals who under the cloak of
religion arc guilty of low, under
hand ways, can be propeily chaiac
teried, and this kingdom has such.
True, there arc among the strictly
religious section of tho community,
men whose integrity, whoso manly
dealings, whose munificent chari
ties, place them above suspicion.
Such men arc soir,etimes Included in
that opprobium ; hut never by fall,
right-thinking men. There is un
doubtedly a semi-religious political
faction, which has formed itself into
a soit of business club, anil has en
deavoured to run this country for itB
own selfish ends, regardless of the
birthright of the native Ilawniian.
1 am sorry for IJush and Wilcox.
They arc doing their best (bliudly I
allow) to damage the native cause;
hut I yenturo to say that there is in
this country sufllcient of tho element
Of fair piny to hold tho balance of
tho natives right, and to laugh at
tho so-called missionaries, aijil such
men as "Hail Columbia."
