SUGAR TRUST DESERTED
ONLY NIX ftENATOHft FOR A.ttElW
ID NltOiR HCIIKDVI.B.
Ilupea Ihnt Former Vlclorlea of III
Combination Will Nut Be
"Tho Senators from Have
mover" aro lees numerous than
was supposed. The Sugar Trust
won a victory in the Finance
Committee and . got all that it
asked for in tho revised tariff sched
ules. But in tno cyclone of protest
that has raged from all quarters
of the compass since the bill was
reported the friends of the trust
appear to have been mostly blown
According to a poll of the Sen
ate made by tho New York
Herald's Washington correspond
ent, but six lone Senators are
ready to answer aye when it
comes to a vote on tho amended
sohedule. Aldrich of Rhode Isl
and, tho personal representative
of the Sugar Trust; Allison of
Iowa, Morrill of Vermont, Piatt of
Connecticut, Quay of Pennsyl
vania and Sewell of New Jersey
are the only ones given in favor
of Hie schedule, and of these Al
drich and Allison woro not seen,
but setdownvon general principles,
as they had voted to report tho
bill in its present shape. All the
other members are reported as
either opposed or doubtful, and
tho positivo strength ranged
against the sugar schedule is giv
en at forty-seven. As the Senate
stands this is a majority of six
over all against the trust, and a
probable majority of forty.
The Herald's Washington cor
respondence is not noted for its
accuracy, but there is good reason
to believe it is correct in this in
stance. The sugar sohedule is
one of the most indefensible items
inserted in the tariff bill. It
balances all the good work that
tho Senate Finance Committee
performed in mitigating the ab
ominations of the Dingley' bill as
it was jammed through the House.
The Dingley bill offered a degree
of protection to the American re
finers that would insure them the
American market. It established
a rate for raw sugars of one cent
per pound for sugars testing 75
degrees and three one-hundredths
of a cent for every degree above
that figure. For refined sugar it
set a rate of 1.875 oontB per pound.
Tho difference between raw and
refined sugar was thus largo
enough to give American refiners
an average advantage of about
half a cent a pound. The Senate
sugar sohedule gives a rato of .79
of a cent per pound on raw sugars
testing between 87 and 88 degrees
by the polariscopo, and an addi
tional duty of 35 per cent ad
valorem. The rate on re
fined sugar is set at 1.16
cents per pound and 35 per cont
ad valorem. The difference given
to the sugar refiners here is thus
.37 of a cont and 35 per cent on
the difference in the cost of laying
raw and refined sugars down in
this market. The protection to
the trust can bo figured out only
by the sugar experts, but it is
probably somewhere in the neigh
borhood of a quarter of a cent
above that in the Dingley bill.
The Sugar Trust has won two
great victories in the last two
tariff bills. It dictated the figures
in the McEinloy bill, by which,
according to the testimony'of Mr.
Haveraever, the trust made a pro
fit of "between $30,000,000 and
835.000,000" in three years. It
took tho Wilson bill by the throat,
and through the disreputable
combination in the Senate of 1894
forced the House to take the tariff
bill as the trust Senators had
mangled it, or tho alternative of
getting no tariff reform at all. It
is to be hoped that the present
occasion will prove too much for
it. If it is beaton in the Sonate it
can havo no hopo, and it is doubt
ful whethor in any ovent tho
Houso can bo got to agree to any
further concessions than tho
Diugloy bill govo it. The storm
of popular indignation has been
seen by the House, aud if there
aro Senators ready to bravo it, tho
KepresoutativeB " are likely to
take to the cyclone cellar. Judg
ing by tho poll of the Sonate, tho
members of the upper house uro
quite of a mind to Btand from
under and lot tho trust take care
of itself. S. F. Examiner.
THE I'EAOE IN HAWAII.
fnnnu Will itnt Incur Trotibln trill.
Hie United Stale.
The Naniwa Kan has arrived at
Honolulu, and still the news is
all of peace. The excitable Ha
waiians who expected to see the
Japanese cruiser heave into sight
belching flame and shot, aud sail
into tho harbor blazing steel pro
tests at Hawaii's immigration po
licy, are tho only ones who are
disappointed at this state of
affairs. Japan ia not going to
make any assault on Hawaii as
long as the United States stands
in the position of Hawaii's bono-,
The Japanese special agent who
has come over to settle the immi
gration troubles of his country
men probably gives a correct idea
of the situation when he says that
the Japanese press "has become
very much inflamed and advises
stern measures, but the press does
not in any way reflect the senti
ments of the government." Tho
press and the mob would like to
go to war. They know nothing
of the actual situation. They are
filled with pride and confidence
from the successful struggle
against China. They are anxious
to seize on any pretext for the ex
pansion of the Japanese power,
and see in the Hawai
ian quarrel the chance to
get the key of the North Pacific
But the Japanese Government is
much better informed. Doubt
less the Mikado and his advisers
are quite as ambitious as the mob,
but they know that so long as the
United States takes its historical
p.ttitude toward Hawaii the islands
can be seized only by defeating
the United States in war. No
Japanese statesman can think for
an justant of such a stop. Tho
United States has more ships,
more men and more money than
Japan. Therefore the Japanese
Government is for peace, "and
only asks for justice."
Justico is what Japan will get.
The republic of Hawaii has the
Bamo right as other free nations
to pass laws restricting immigra
tion. We have ourselves passed
a more stringent law than Hawaii
against tho Chinese, and we shall
certainly support the right of the
Hawaiians to enforce the restric
tions that they have decreed.
The Japanese in Hawaii will get
the fair treatment that is guaran
teed them by treaty, and they will
be assured of transportation home
when their contracts expire. But
the republic of Hawaii will not
admit any more of them than it
thinks for its own interests. S. F.

After tbo presentation of tho re
port there was a spirited inquiry
as to the attitude of Mr. Spreckels
towards the Hawaiian reciprocity
treaty, upon tho maiutonauco of
which tbo succors of the Hutch

Unarles Jb. Hanlon wore tho
spokesmen for the stockholders,
and it was evident that they re
sented tho strenuous efforts of the
President, acting in concert with
the sugar trust, to have the treaty
rescinded. The Directors of the
company stated that Mr. Glaus
Spreckels' action was a purely
personal ono, and in taking tho
stand which ho had ho in no way
represented the company. A reso
lution was then unanimously
adopted indorsing the troaty as it

In his roport tho president com
mented upon tho now tariff bill as
proposed by the Senate committeo,
and drew attention to the fact that'
under it, so far from helping Am
erican manufacturers of beet sugar
machinery, a clause has been in
troduced expressly to their injury.
He referred to that clause, which
is to permit' the importation of
beet sugar machinery freo of all
duty until July, 1899. The roport
also commented upon the efforts
which hod been made by tho
Directors to fight the attempted
abrogation of the Hawaiian recip
rocity troaty. The total crop
amounted to nearly 13,000 tons,
