JUDGE HARTWELL'S BRIEF
AIIIKKSi:i lO FINAMt'R ciinmiT
TEE OIJ UJIITEnsrATEN SENATE
Htoaona Why the Tirl(T Bill Nhonld
Except Hawaiian rroditclN
Now Free bjr Treaty.
Judge Hartwell, who returned
by tho City of Peking, whilo in
Washington addressed a brief to
tho finance committoo of tho Sen
ate, giving reasons why tho tariff
bill should except fiom duties
Hawaiian products now free by
treaty. Tho brief opens with an
answer to tho Blatemont mado by
Houry Oxnard boforo tho Houso
committee. Mr. Hartwoll bIiowb
that the treaty was mado for poli
tical reasons, and supports this
allegation by quoting the fourth
article of tho treaty itself. Ho
then goes on to demonstrate that
as early as 1873 the United States
made a vain effort to secure Pearl
Harbor. The offer made by Ha
waii was withdrawn, largely owing
to the opposition of English rosi
dnnts in Honolulu, and it became
so evident that English interests
were likely to become predomin
ant that there was no othor way
to prevent Hawaii becoming do
pendent upon somo ether power
than by entering into this reci
procity with the United States.
In 1884 the stipulation was made
that the United States Govern
ment should have oxclusivo right
to enter the harbor of Pearl rivor,
in the island of Oahu, and there
maintain a coaling und repair sta
tion for tho use of tho vessels of
the United States.
Judge Hartwell next proves by
tho diplomatic correspondence
between Secretary Frelinghuysen
and Minister Carter that the Pearl
Harbor privilege granted to tho
United States can only last as
long aB the treaty. Ho discusses
the right of Congress to enact
tariff laws nullifying treaty stipu
lations, aud argues the immense
advantage of this treaty, in that it
prevents Hawaii from entering
into any other such treaty with
any othor country, and this was
carried so far that the British
Government was denied the right
to reBt a cable upon one of its isl
ands. It is intimated that the com
mercial results of tho treaty have
not been fairly proseuted by Mr.
Oxnard. Judge Hartwoll points
out that in the very largest item of
all, Hawaii sugar, tho consignors
invoiced at thvir fullest gross
value aud uot at their net value,
which would bo 25 per cent less
than Mr. Oxnard 's figures. On
the other hand, he demonstrates
that American goods wore uot in
voiced at anything liko their full
value, so that 20 per cent should
be added to ascertain their actual
value. Those two changes alone,
ho claims, cut tho balance of trado
against the United States $81,
000,000 to 14,000,000.
Mr. Hartwell proceeds to de
monstrate tho fact that tho in
terislaud steam navigation trade
and tho trade between Sau Fran
cisco and Honolulu has greatly
increased, and has brought about
the construction of vessels which,
with 'a single exception, woro
built in tho United States. Ho
touches incidentally upon tho fact
that fully one third of tho ontire
sugar output of the islands is
owned by American citizens re
Biding in California, and contri
buting from their sugar profits to

Tho closiug paragraph of Mr.
Hartwoll's brief is significant.
"It is exceedingly fortunate that
tho Sugar Trust has shown that
tho interests of boot sugar are
identical with those of tho Trust,
for this enables tho peoplo of the
United States as well as tho
honorablo Senato to understand
precisely tho real reasons for
which tho Hawaiian treaty is
sought to bo abrogated. If this
result woro obtained at tho dicta
tion of a sugar trust it would bo
plain to all mon that tho foreign
policy of tho United States, as far
as it over had a foreign policy, is

DICKER WITH -BEET SUGAR
THE TIHJHrilS TO PAT 81'BEOK.
ELS A 1.0NU PUIOK.
Four of Oppnilllon by Hawaiian
Planter Lead Nprcckvla to
Hake the Deal.
Tho recent agreeraont botween
John E. Seailes, secretary of tho
sugar trust, and Clous Spreckels
whereby the trust seemed a large
intorost in tho beot sugar indus
try of this State, says tho Sau
Francisco Chronicle, has moro bo
hind it than more desiro to
strongthou tho position of tho su
gar trust with American refiners.
Tho boot sugar industry of
California threatened the sugar
trust and both the trust aud tho
beet sugar industry woro threaten
ed with competition by theiich
planters of Hawaii, whoso con
tract with tho Amoiicau sugar le-
finers will expiro this year. The
planters ate backed by an im
mensely wealthy syndicate and if
tho reciprocity agreomeut between
tho United Slates and Biwaii can
bo maintained the product of tun
island plantations will uiako tho
Pacific Coast a controlling factor
in the prico of sugur in the Unit
ed States, for tho reason that
should tho trust make excessive
prices for granulated beet, sugar
conBumors could fall back on the
Hawaiian planters and their
friends in San Francisco, who are
prepared to orect a great rofiuery
hero independent of tho trust ro
finorics controlled by Sprockets.
Should tho planters of tho isl
ands be ablo to induce tho United
States to annex Hawaii they can
by an outlay of about $23,000 for
each plantation add to their Bugar
boiling plants machinery enough
to produce granulated sujnr and
put it on the Amoiicau market in
competition with tho product of
the trust's refineries.
Tho object of tho sugar trust in
the deal with Spreckols was pri
marily to head off competition
from tho beet sugar refineries of
California controlled by Spreckols.
That was accomplished in the re
cent transaction whereby an in
terest in tho Watsouvillo refinerv
and interests in other beet ugar
industries controlled by Sprcukels
woro purchased by tho trust,
though the seller declares that ho
still holds tho controlling interest.
The sugar trust had to pay
through the noso for theso inter
ests. Most of the stock which it
purchased had been sold by
Spreckels to his friouds, and sold
with a string to it. It was deliv
ered only on condition thut it
should be roturned whouever
called for on tho payment of tho
actual value of tho stock, with
tho par valuo ns the minimum
figure. Tho dividend last year
was 80 percent on the stock, 30
per cent of which was back bouu
ties. Up to tho year piovious the
shareholders woro givon in earn
ings $117 for every $100 worth of
shares they hold, and naturally
they were reluctant to part with
their stock. Louis Sloss held a
good deal of it, but under tho
conditions on which ho purchased
it he was obliged to sell, and tho
Spreckels paid him $300 a share
for his holding. Now tho object
of tho Sprtckels-tiust combine is
to wipo out tho reciprocity section
of the Hawaiian treaty, if possible,
and should that be accomplished
to oppose annexation.
Competition from other sources
is uot anticipated. It needs great
capital to establish a beet sugar
refinery. At least $.100,0011 is re
quired to orect tho necessary
buildings aud purchase tho ma
chinery, and as much more is re
quired to purchase land and pro
pare it for tho cultivatiou of tho
beets, and as nt least throo years
is required before tho land can bo
mado to produce beets with suffi
cient sacchariuo matter to make
sugar, another half million dollars
is needed for working capital.
Beet sugar cannot bo produced iu
a hurry aud on cheap liues.
Spreckels has giveu tho indus
try much attention. Ho has tak
en advantage of the mistakes of
others, and tho balance sheet of
the Watsonvillo refinory has de
monstrated that California can
produco sugar boots which cannot
he equaled in auy other part of
Tho Watsonvillo factory with
its success startled tho Eastern
sugar manufacturers, and the deal
just closed between tho sugar
I trust and Spreckols was tho result.

This is a serious question,
one at which some folks take
ofl'en&e, yet salesmen are under
the necessity of asking it.
Some folks deal near home,
settle infrequently, never in
vestigate to see whtther they
pay more than thoy should and
too often allow their accounts to
go long over due. If you don't
care what the family expenses
are it's a poor way to do if you
want to leave your children in
afiiuent circumstances when
you aro gone. Now it is quito
an advantages to have an open
account at a well-known house,
who can execute your order
promptly. Often persons say
they don't want an account and
will pay in a few days. But
we cannot keop memoranda of
charges; it isn't safe or good
business. Tho stock found in
ordinary stores is usually stale,
uninviting and inferior, whilo
the stock in our store is turned
