BEET SUGAR, AND HAWAII
CORRECT VIEW OF THE BALANCE
OF TRADK QUESTION.
Beet Miiirar Industry Doiii Not linns
on tile Fate of the llawnl-
"Boet Sugar and Hawaii" is tho
subject of tho following pointed
artielo in tho Ban Francisco Exa
miner: Senator Perkins confesses him
self in a dilemma between two
charmers. Ho could bo happy
with Hawaiian reciprocity if only
tho boet sugar industry was away,
or ho could rovel in tho sweets of
and WatsonTillo and
only tho Hawaiian Re
treaty would go homo,
bis bosom is torn with
conflicting emotions, and he ex
plains to tho Sacramento Chamber
of Commerce in this pathetic
"I am placed in this matter in a
very embarrassing situation by
reason of the divergent views
taken regarding reciprocity with
Hawaii by prominent citizens and
commercial bodies in different
parts of tho Stato. Commercial
organizations, banks and exporters
of San Francisco deem the con
tinuance of the treaty of vital im
portance to thorn and to the gen
oral prosperity of the State, whilo
from interior cities and counties
come appeals for the abrogation
of tho treaty.
"The point on whioh tho oppo
sition to tho treaty is based is the
boot-sugar industry of the State.
No one can bo more alivo to the
importance of that industry than
myself, and 1 hope. to see it grow
and give to the State that prospe
rity whioh I believe it is capable
of producing. "We are now pay
ing to China, the East Indies and
other countries with whioh we
have no reciprocity treaties tens
of millions of dollars each year
for BUgar on which we impose an
import duty, and as long as we
are compelled to purohase sugar
from foreign countries it soems
but right that we should give to
those granting us reciprocal bene
fits tho advantage in removing
the tariff from thoir staple article
of export. I can only say that
my best thought shall be givon to
the matter und that I shall be
governed in my action by tho
wishes of tbo majority of the peo
ple of the State as far as I can as
certain what they are."
If Senator Perkins will look a
little more deeply into the subject
bo will find that it is not necessa
ry to sacrifice either of his
charmers. Beet sugar is undoubt
edly to bd an important industry
for California, but its growth
is not going to bang on the
fate of the Hawaiian Reciprocity
treaty. Last year, with a short
crop of beets, all our beet-sugar
factories mado money. Accord
ing to Mr. Rudolph Spreckels, tho
Alvarado rofinery paid 30 per
cent dividends, tbo Watsonville
refinery 80 per cent, and the
Ghino factory something between
these figures. All this was done
along with the existence of the
Hawaiian Reciprocity treaty, and
evon these profits aro enough to
attract the attontion of capital aud
lead to a largo increase of the
business. But when tho now ta
riff bill is passed theso profits will
bo much enlarged. There is go
ing to be a big increase in the ta
riff on sugar, and a corresponding
riso in prioo. Tho boot-sugar in
dustry is thoreforo certain to pros
per, aud does not need tho cutting
off of tho Hawaiian produot to in
sure its success.
On the other hand, tho Hawai
ian trade is of great profit to Cali
fornia. Last year we received
from Hawaii merchandise to the
value of 815,244,977. To pay for
this we sent Hawaii $4,184,351 in
goods, 81,005,278 in gold and
873,900 in silver. That is to say',
by paying out 85,323,529 all told
wo bought goods worth 815,244,
977. Is thoro any objeotion to
that kind of a "balance of trade?"
Ib thoro any one in California
who wonld object to a trade in
which ho got 815 worth of goods
in exchange for 85? That is what
wo ure doiug right alone in the
Hawaiian trade, yet the whole
burdon of the opposition to tho
treaty roBts on this fact. For
some inscrutable) reason tho oppo
nents of tho treaty beliovo aud
urgo that the Hawaiiaus should be
taking $15,000,000 or 816,000,000
instead of $5,323,000 in payment
for their products. It would be
tho rankest folly to kick a cus
tomer of this kind out of our shop,
aud we trust that Senator Perkins
will have no part in any such en
terprise. IIAB A NARROW ESCAPE.

The opportune presence of
Captain Renken of the' Mounted
Patrol on the Bceno prevented
what might have been a very so
rious accident yesterday after
noon. Mrs. E. D. Tenney was visit
ing Mrs. John S. Walker
aud while about to alight at the
house from her buggy the horse
took fright at something and
mado a dash for the gate. The
gato was closed but that made
no difference, the horse and
buggy went through it.
Mrs. Tenney had hold of the lines
when the animal started and be
ing a good horsewoman did not
lose her nerve. In going through
the gate, however, she was thrown
across tho buggy wheels, still re
taining her grip ou the lines. In
this perilous position she was seen
by Captain Ronken of the Mount
ed Patrol who had just passed the
house on his way to Waikiki. He
wheeled round 'and started at the
best speed of his horse for the
runaway, succeeding in catching
it by the head and stopping it op
posite Saml. Parker's gate. Mrs.
Tenney dropped from the wheels
to the ground .when the buggy
was stopped in a limp and half
dazed condition, but recovered
Boon afterward and was taken
home. One shoulder and an arm
were badly grazed and her olothing
waBjcut and torn by the wheels and
she was also considerably bruised.
It was fortunate for her that as
sistance was so soon at hand.
This morning E. D. Tenney
called at tbo polico station and
inquirod for Captain Renken.
That officer was absent on busi
ness, so Mr. Tenney called on the
Marshal and askod him to express
tho thanks of Mrs. Tenney and
himself to Captain Renken for
his timely assistance yesterday, at
tho same time leaving an envelope
for him. When Captain Renken
returned he was called in to the
Marshal's office and came out
with a oheck for 850 in his hand
which he had found in the en
velope. NEW ZEALAND SERVICE.

Cuba, says: Wo have special in

Predidout W. O. Smith presided
at tho weekly session df tho Bord-
of Health yesterday afternoon, the
other members preuoiit being Dr.
Emerbon, T. F. Litnsing, C. A.
Brown a'nd D. Eeliipio. Agent
Reynolds and Dr. Mousarrat were
also on hand.
After tho reading of tho min
utes Dr. Monsarrat's report from
the slaughter houses was taken up
and approved. In answer to
questions Dr. Mousarrat said ho
made a daily inspection of all the
hogs in the peas aud that they
were now all in good condition.
Inspector Eeliipio's report from
tho Fish Markot showed tho re
ceipt and examination of 30,027
fish during the past week.
Mrs. F. W. Macfarlano's report
as treasurer of the Matornity
Homo was read and approved and
tho monthly subsidy of $1G7 or
E. Hammer applied for tho
position of apothecary of the Hilo
hospital and "Wilfred Dixon of
Hilo for that of steward and care
taker, the latter claiming to have
bad largo experience in hospital
work in Java and Fiji. Both ap
plications were filed to await the
completion of the building.
J. A. Masoon as attorney tor
Tai Wah, who owns' a fish stall in
the market, protested against the
arbitrary actions of sub-inspector
Nakookoo in destroying certain
fish belonging to Tai Wah, and at
the same time charged that the
inspector's aotions were influono-'
ed by his personal interest, he
being a partner in a native hui
running an opposition fish stall.
President Smith explained that
the inspector had already been
tried and acquitted by Judgodo
la Vergne for tbo seizure of the
fish but be would like to hear
from Inspector Keliipio on tho
Mr. Keliipio explained that sea
mullet wore caught in the day
time and pond mullet in tho even
ing. It was a rule ot tuo market
that no fish should bo oxposed for
sale that had boen over 24 hours
out of the water. Under this rule
the sea mullet bad to be with
drawn from sale five or six hours
before pond mullet. Somo of tho
Chinese stall keepers were in tho
habit of mixing sea with pond
mullet to avoid loss, and after this
was done it was almost impossi
ble to tell them apart and tho
stall-keeper thus got rid of his
stale fish. The man Tai Wah had
been caught by his deputy mixing
fish in this mannor and he bad
condemned the whole lot.
President Smith thought this
was eminently proper and that tho
inspector should be sustained by
the Board in his actions. He
would like to hear what was tho
defense to tho chargo that tho' in
spector was personally interested
in an opposition stall.
Mr. Keliipio said ho believed
this was true but to what oxtont
he could not tell.
Mr. Smith voiced the sentimont
of tho Board whon ho said that
the deputy must either go out of
the fish business or resign his po
sition, and the matter was referred
to 0. A. Brown as a committee of
one to investigate.
Mr. Keliipio also stated that he
had drawn up a series of rules to
govern the sale of fish at the
market and asked that thoy bo in
dorsed by tho Bpard. Roforred

J. K. Ioaepa, of Hana, recently

A petition from a resident of
Knknnko to have garbage dumpod
on his lot was referred to tho ex
ecutive offip.e'r, of tho Board.
Dr. T. Allen, for Bix years gov
ernment physician at Hana, who
was compelled to leave tbo
islands two years ago on
account of ill health, wrote
that his health was restored
and ho desired to again onter tho
service of tho Board.
A communication from Frank
Godfrey asking to bo allowed to
go to Molokai with the Board as
tho representative of tho Inde
pendent was read, together with
one from F. J. Testa, proprietor
of tho Independent, who stated
that Mr. .Godfrey's connection
with his paper consisted solely in
reporting ball games and that
either Mr. Wright or Mr. Norrie
would accompany tho Board.
Mr. Godfrey's application was
Fresidout Smith said that bo
had boon overwhelmed with appli
cations for'perinits to accompany
the Board to Molokai. He had
received and examined about 80
of theso aud more continued to
come. So far ho bad granted
about 4G pormits. Of these
eight wero from tho American
men of nvar in port aud
two from the Japanese. Ninetoon
others wore aivon to friends of
lepers whoso visits woro necessary
to straighten out proporty comph
cations, bring back non-leprous

lani would leave on Thursday at
9 p. in. and it was expected Hono
lulu would bo reached on the re
turn at midnight on Friday.
President Smith stated that at
some future time the Board would
have to take somedefiniteaotion in
the matter of feeB for special opera
tions charged by hospital physi
cians. Tho suit of Dr. Raymond
against Paia plantation, in whioh
tho jury had given a verdict for
8250 for the doctor, would result
in tho withdrawal of a groat deal
of plantation patronage from the
Government hospitals unless there
was somo dofiuito limit to the
charges. He had beon asked by
plantation managers to bo ar
range fees that they might know
what thoy would have to pay in
advance. They wore willing to
pay for all cases of accident whioh
happened in thoir service no mat
tor what the foes were; but thoy
decidodly objeoted to having to
pay for costly operations for in
ternal diseases which made their
appearanco in tho ordinary courso
In reply to a question by Mr.
Lansing, the president said tho
case on whioh Di. Raymond sued
was from an internal complaint,
the cause of which must have ori
ginated before the man entered
tbo service of tho company. The
operation was what ib known as a
capital one and consisted in mak
ing an opening in tho abdominal
cavity. Tho charge for theso
operations was anywhoro from
8100 to 81000 aooording to tho
testimony in tho case. The de
cision, if sustained by tho Su
preme Court, would make the
plantations liable, for fees in these
cases, bonce managers considered
it onlv fair that a limit should bo
fixed to guide both physicians and
"I have given this subject muoh
consideration," concluded Mr.
Smith, "and I beliovo there is on
ly one way out of the difficulty.
Lot ua pay our hospital physicians
a fair reasonable salary and ro
quire their wholo time and ser
vices for that salary. Lot ua fix
a reasonable scale of oharges for
operations at these hospitals on
tho plan lately adopted by the
trustees of the Queen's hospital
and have it understood that the
fees collected go to the hospital
and not to the physician. Of
courso somo of our physicians
won't liko this plan but if thoy
don't thoro are plenty of othors to
take thoir places. If tho govern
ment gots tho foos thoy may not
be so many or large but at
any rate thero will io an onu to
The Board seemed to think Mr.
Smith's suggestion an admirable
one but in the absence of Dr.
Wood the, matter wn not pressed.
Hong Quou, inniuiuor of Sing
Ohong & Co., sent :i unmrnunica-
; tion to the Board Hiuiui that his
