THE SUCAR CONFERENCE.
The most interesting as well as im
portant news for this country brought
by to-day's steamer from California
is doubtless that pertaining to the
sugar situation. It is well-known
that between the effects of the Mc
Kinley Act and the operations of the
.Sugar Trust, Hawaiian planters had
a rather critical prospect for the pro
fitable marketing of their sugar.
While the steamer Australia was at
San Francisco a conference was held
between Mr. Clans Spreckels and
stockholders of the Western Sugar
Refinery on the one hand, and repre
sentatives of the leading plantation
interests of this country outside of
the Spreckels' clientele, hitherto, on
tho other hand. Besides the gentle
men who went over from here to the
conference, there came to it Mr.
Theo. II. Davies from England, Mr.
P. 0. Jones from Boston, and Hon.
Paul Isenberg from Germany. San
Francisco papers have reports of
what they gathered had been the
cause and results of the conference,
but they are so far as seon inaccurate
in certain details well known here;
hence arc not deemed worthy of re
producing. Fiom a member of one
of the firms most strongly interested
in the matter and represented at the
conference, the Bum.ktin representa
tive has obtained a general idea of tho
agreement formulated at the confer
ence. It is common knowledge that
before the adoption of free raw sugar
in the United States our planters
were paid for their crops in San Fran
cisco on the basis of New York prices
for Cuba centrifugals degree
teat with this duty added. When
there was no longer any duty to add,
the basis was made null. The con
ference was entered by Hawaiian
planters with a view to restoring the
New York basis and having certain
reductions against them waived by j
the refining interests. According whaler Nautilus, Mr. A. .1. t.art
to the bargain concluded between wrightsajs:
L-nic n.i .i,n T..i ti.n ,
. ,.,...v.w ....V. V.. ...UV, V..V.
Spreckels' interest has had the entire
field west of the Rocky Mountains
left to itself. Consequently it was
necessary for the Hawaiian planters
who had surrendered their refining
interests on the Coast to the Trust to
treat with Mr. Spreckels for a market
basis. It was agreed in conference
to restore the New York basis and to
abate the reductions in question to
some extent, although not to the full
degree asked for by the planteis.
There had to be ratification of the
agreement from capitalists in the
East, which had not come when the
steamer sailed. However, from all
that can be learned, our planters re
gard the agreemeut as likely to stand
aud to improve their position. The
price is the same as at last previous
advices Jljc. New York, equal to
2c. on this side.

Iteautlful Polled Ahuiih Cattle Im
ported I i ''( liy Hum. W. . Ir-
By the ship Benmore that arrived
at sundown yesterday from Liver
pool, G. B., there arrived a herd of
four beautiful, thoroughbred Polled
Angus cattle for Hon. Win. G. Ir
win. Thete are two bulls and two
cows. They arrived in marvelously
fine condition after their 122 days at
sea. Their coats are a glossy jet
black, as sleek as the jacket of a col
lie dog. Many people have gone to
sec the cattle, first on board ship,
then in the owner's stable on Queen
street, and seeing was only to admire
the splendid animals.
Mr. Irwin has also imported by
the same ship a pair of highbred
pigs, which have also arrived in ex
cellent condition. The pigs appear
to feel the change of climate.
Further description of the stock
is defened for want of space.
Mr. J. P. Blaise, an extensive real
estate dealer in Dcs Moines, Iowa,
narrowly escaped one of the severest
attacks of pneumonia while in the
northern part of that state during a
recent blizzard, says the Saturday
Review. Mr. Blaise had occasion to
drive several miles, during the storm
and was so thoroughly chilled that
lie was unable to gel warm, and in
side of an hour after his return he
was threatened with a severe case of
pneumonia or lung fever. Mr. Blaine
sent to the nearest drug store aud
got a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy, of which he had often
heard, and took a number of laigc
doses. He says the effect was won
derful and that iu a short time he
was breathing quite easily. Ho kept
on taking the medicine and the next
day was able to come to Des Moines.

A RAGE FOR LIFE.
The barkentine Mary Winkelnian
had a narrow escape fiom being
burned at sea on April 10th. Captain
Niseen had left San Francisco that
day for Honolulu with a general
cargo, a large part consisting "1 some
highly inflammable material, includ
ing coal oil. After passing the Far
allones, one of" the sailors noticed
smoke issuing fiom the fore hatch.
The captain was notified, the hatch
battened and the vessel stood in for
shore. Tlie signal ot distress was
hoisted and the lug Active comiiisr
out escorted the vessel into pott. It
was a desperate race for life, as
when the hatches were opened it was
seen that the lire had almost l cached
the coal oil. Captain Nissen is com
mended for his heioic conduct, the
gait at which he sent his vessel in,
with all sails &et, being 13 knots.
The death is announced in this is
sue of Mrs. 11. W. McChesney, wite
ot the senior member of the firm of
M. W. McChesney & Son, San Fran
cisco and Honolulu. She spent some
time in Honolulu three months ago,
and when she left her fatal illness
had begun to manifest its symptoms.
The malady was cancer of the
itomach. Mis. McChesney lived
here with her husband for a year one
time. One of the sous, J. M., would
have readied San Fianciseo with bis
bride by the Alameda a few days
.ifter his mother's death. The store
is closed to day out of respect for
Mrs. MeClicsney's mommy. This
paper reflects the feeling of the com
munity in extending sympathy to
the bereaved husband and family.

THE WAY TO 'FRISCO.
Prnti - rnnl
At Auwaiolimu yesterday, in the
cool of tlic evening, two brothers, sail
ors on dlil'erent island coasters, were
relating to each other occurrences on
their different routes. They occa
sionally took a slap at a "little nig
ger" In position lietwccnthetn. Their
audience consisted of about a dozen
or two men. women and children.
When they had drawn the audience j
into a mood of intense interest iu
their marine yarns, one of them pro- '
pounded a very troublesome problem
in navigation, Viz, "What point of
the compass would carry a vessel i
f loin Honolulu to San Francisco?" j
The little fellow by this time had
received such unmerciful treat- !
nient that he could not stand it any j
longer and began making reprisals, j
lie twitched the manners' inner re- j
gions, causing an irritation that re
sulted in a mutually disputative dis- !
position. When one gave the solu-
tion, "Is-sow-is," the other emphati
cally opposed that it was "No-no-is.
Each having failed beat the other
in boxing the compass without deci
sive result, they decided to,, box
each othur for a change. They
showed more proficiency in the battle
of muscle than iu that of mind. They
went at it, hammer and tongs, up
setting everything iu the house, and
rousing the neighborhood with the
tliundeiing noise they made in their
rough and "tumble combat. It was
not lita, however. The younger
brother trot the elder under, after
which a tiuce was declared. When
the repoiter was turning to go away
he heard one of them making a. re
mark, "You wait till to-morrow when
I get sober!"
