The light all along the line against
the Louisiana lottery in the United
(States is not without material inte
rest to this country. A good many
tickets have come here, and a good
deal of money has gone hence, in
connection with this colossal guiuo of
chance, hut it has never become
known that any of the gieat capital
prizes has dropped down,
IIuii. Win, M. Springer, in the
North American Hoviow for Febru
ary, argues that attacks on the Mu
Kinley Hill the present session should
be confined to thu points that experi-
ence has already shown to he weak.
He singles out the wool duty for
special attack, saying, "So far as
wool is concerned, the MuKinley Hill
has completely failed to accomplish
the object which its authors claimed
they had in view." lie gives lipures
to show thai the hill has greatly in
jured both the wool growers and
the consumers of woolen gootls.
"The only beneficiaries of the meas
ure are the manufacturers of woolen
goods, and it is doubtful whether
they will, in the end, receive substan
tial hetielU therefrom."
SUGAR IN THE STATES.
Mr. C. H. Huckland, comuieicial
editor of the American Agriculturist,
lias favored this journal with advance
sheets of the March number of that
pei iodical, containing an article by
himself on "The Possibilities of Our
fU. S. Sugar Industry." There are
some inteiesting points in the article.
"It was not until April 1, 18111, that
we had free sugar," Mr. Buckland
says, "yet the consumption during
lS'.ll was by far the largest in our
history." The consumption in tons
of 2210 lbs., in 1801, was 1,885, 991,
as compared with 1,522, 701 in 1890.
Per capita the consumption in 1890
was 51.50 pounds, while in 1891 it
was 07.10 pounds. Of the sugar
consumed in 1891, only 2GG, 290 tons,
or about 11 percent of the whole, was
grown in the United .Slates. The
writer of the article points out what
a magnificent opportunity is here
afforded to the agriculturists of the
United Slates. If they raised all the
sugar consumed at home, with the
bounty of 44.80 on the long ton, it
would bring the American farmers
about $80,000,000 annually. Thus
far, however, the home production
had increased but slightly, that of
1890 being 2G5,439 tons, against the
2GG,290 tons of 1891.
Mr. Huckland says a material in
crease is cspected under the stim
ulus of the bounty. "There is yet
an extensive area in the Southern
Stales that is adapted lo the cultiva
tion of cane sugar. Especially is
this true of Florida, where there is a
large breadth of land that is believed
to be as well adapted to the sugar
cane as the famous Hawaiian planta
tions, and it is even said to be more
fertile than the Sandwich island sugar
soils. There are millions of acres
suitable for the growth of the sugar
beet, and now that government aid
lias been directly guaranteed there
should be no lack of capital to pro
mote and foster the increase of botli
cane and beet sugar at home."
The Agriculturist writer cites the
6100,000 earned in bounties by the
three California beet sugar factories
in 1891 on -1000 tons of sugar, say
ing the figures should bring the mat
ter right home to the farmers and
capitalists of the rest of the coun
try. The success of these three
sugar factories was stimulating
others in the west, and the writer
hopes to see the day when the figures
of the home and foreign product will
be reversed in the sugar consump
tion of the nation. "The actual
cash paid out of the country, last
year, for foreign sugar exceeded
100,000,000. Add to this a bounty of
two cents per pound on the 1,221,
000,000 pounds of sugar that we
consumed last year, and which we
might produce ourselves, and we
have a further sum of S80,000,000,
the whole of which 180,000,000
might he circulated and distributed
throughout Hie length and breadth of
What a glorious -picture of pros
perity within their easy grasp does
Mr. Huckland present to American
fanners! One hundred and eighty
million dollars to be distributed
among them if they raise their own
sugar! That does look alluring.
Yet there is nothing in the whole
argument to make anybody of sense
believe that the United States will
ever approach the production al
home of the sugar she consumes.
The 100,000,000 paid for foreign
sugar which thu American farmers
are told they can save can only be.
saved iu whole by giving up to a
corresponding extent thu raising of
other products which, other things
being equal, might yield them fully
as much as sugar. Then the S80,
000,000 to he got from thu bounty
is simply eighty millions taken di
rectly out of the taxes on the people,
and the larger pioportion of it will
nctcuisarily come out of the pockets
of the farmers themselves. There
is further tile big "if" in the ques
tion "if" thu bounty system bo
continued, which Is not likely to he
the case for any considerable period.
The sugar men of Louisiana as the
lii;i, i.r.i in has been informed by a
public functionary who came directly
from amongst them- feel alarm at
thu situation iu which the bounty
places them. It puts them in a posi
tion of invidious prominence as
beneficiaries of the public treasury
without value received. Heinu: an
extreme development ol protection,
bounties will be the first thing to
go down before the rising tide of
It may bo safe lo predict thai the
increase in production of sugar under
the bounty stimulus will not keep
much in advance of the increase of
consumption under the stimulus of
free sugar in the United Slates.
Thus far the ratio of increase in
home production has been far behind
that of Increase in consumption, al
though the second year will be bound
to show the ratio of production
advancing. The Agriculturist editor
rather spoils his glittcrinir induce
ments for farmers to rush into sugar
growing in his closing paragraph,
which reads as follows:
At this juncture sugar can hardly
be raised profitably iu the United
States without a bounty, and Louisi
ana planters will abundantly testify
to the uncertainty of their crops in
I lie past as a paying investment. It
is a moot question, moreover, whether
at the expiration of the term for
which the bounty has been guaran
teed, sugar-growing would then be
profitable without either bounty or
duty. This, of course, will depend
upon the question of future supply
and demand. Wages here are higher
to a degree limn in the other sugar
producing countries, but there is am
ple lime for American ingenuity lo
contrive improved mechanical appli
ances that may more than offset any
competitive disadvantages under
which we are now loboring from that
Tact, which cannot and should not be
The article in the Agriculturist has
the usual reference to Hawaii's
changed conditions from the effects
of the McKinlcy bill, witli the hack
neyed assertion that our only hope is
in annexation, because that is the
single means of securing the bounty.
In reply to this it is only necessary lo
.ay that, while Hawaii may one day,
remote or near, ask to be admitted in
to the Union, she would show a crass
stupidity in making the occasion of
her application a piece of tariff leg
islation iu the States which there is
good reason to believe will only prove
to be a temporary expedient.
AN EVIL SPIRIT.
M. J. Perteira, clerk iu the store
of M. A. Gousalves & Co., was ar
raigned before Police Justice Foster
this morning, charged with conspir
ing to do injury lo C. L. Hrito and
family. Defendant pleaded not
guilty and his trial was commenced.
Mr. Hrito the complainant testified
to a certain happening in his house
at Punahou, which he at first attri
buted to spirits. There were stones
thrown on the house, dishes broken,
11 bonnets and hats torn, milk spill
ed on the stove and other mischiev
ous acts perpetrated. His suspicions
were aroused that Perreira was likely
the frisky evildoer. Mr. Hrito went
down to Ewa one day and left his
family in Perreira's care and on re
turning was surprised to see his
whole family wearing (lowers be
hind their ears, while Perreira had
a similar decoration iu his button
hole. The servant girl Julia was
questioned as to any relations with
1'eireira, when she denied ever hav
ing anything to do with him. Hut
with Mr. Hrito's suspicions aroused
there was no help for it, some oue
had to go up.
The trial is still on. V. V. Ash
ford and J. M. Davidson appeaj for
the prosecution ; '. M. Hatch for
the defense. The courtroom was
crowded with Portuguese, who are
taking a deep interest in the affair.
DIED IN THE STREET.
Early Sunday morning the body of
a native was discovered lying on the
sidewalk on Fort street, near School
street. The man was seen the night
previous reeling as if intoxicated,
near where his body was found Sun
day morning. The body was taken
lo the Police Station, where it was
identified as that of Fnoka, a sailor
on the schooner Kulamanu. No one
appearing to claim the remains,
Deputy Marshal Mehrten had them
conveyed to the Maikiki Cemetery
for interment. The unfortunate
man's death was no doubt caused by
