as favoring war on account of Samoa.
Jtie is quoted as saying: "ii tne uer

ought to fight, if necessary, to secure
them. We made a mistake in per
mitting the Germans to secure a foot
hold there and we will make another
mistake if we allow them to retain
their present ascendancy to the exclu
sion of other nations, our own particu
larly." An exhibition match of billiards
was arranged in San Francisco lately
between J. F. B. McCleery, billiard in
ttructor, and Crown, a Canadian
player. The latter failed to appear, to
the disgust of several hundred lovers
of the game. In order to prevent dis
appointment of the audience, an ama
teur named James Gilbert was induced
to play McCleery, the latter heavily
handicapped. McCleery was to play
200 points eight-inch balk line to Gil
bert's 100 points straight rail. The
amateur won by making his score In
twenty innings, when McCleery had
only readied 165. The latter made one
run of 72.

of the United States is 4,105,844, the

were travelling on the railroad, and
were heard discussing the probable
termination of the war. "I think,"
said the first. " that Jefferson will suc

asked the other. " Because Jefferson
is a praying man." " And so is Abra

Special Correspondence of the Gazette
The Committee on Ways and Means of the
present Congress will be Mills (chairman;,
Cox of New York, McMillan of Tennessee.
Breckenridge of Kentucky, Breckenridge of
Arkansas, Tamer of Georgia, By mem of In
diana, all Democrats, and Keller of Penn
sylrania, Brown of Indiana, Ueed of Maine,
Falter of Iowa and MoKinley of Ohio, all
Republicans. There is not a protectionist
among the majority and Speaker Carlisle
has assigned one freetrader to the minority.
Mills of Texas, when interviewed, said that
'the administration reTenae bill proposed
to oat off $50,000,000 on customs daties by
placing salt, coal, iron ore, wood and a few
other articles on the free list, reducing the
duties on sugar one-half, and cutting the
duties on a few other articles."
The attention of Congress will be especi
ally directed to the "Trusts" that hare re
cently sprung into existence, and their effect
npon the necessaries of life, action being
especially directed against the coal and
sugar trusts, which, it is claimed, are the
cause of the present high price of sugar,
which is quoted to-day at 5 15-16 cents for
Cuban 96. With the abolition ot the doty
on sugar will probably come a bounty to
sugar producers in the United States, and
this, says the Netct Letter, " meanB a bounty
to every industry into which sugar enters."
The stertmer City of Pueblo, that it was
said would be placed in the Hawaiian trade,
haB been chartered by Goodall, Perkins &
Co. for the Pacific CoasI trade; and the
steam-schooner Jesse H. Freeman, after
making a few coasting trips, is being fitted
out for wbnling. ,
The San Francisco papers have been filled
with most contradictory stories as to the
position of affairs in Hawaii, "owing to the
Kind's veto of certain bills passed by the Leg
islature. Mr. Wilder has been extensively
interviewed and plaoes matters in a favor
able HrA, while other .information, purport
ing to have been derived from private ad
vices, tells of a second revolution that was
imminent. The Post has published a story
to the effect that the United States can buy
the Islands for $5,000,000, giving Kilakaua a
good ranch with $5,000 per annum in Cali
fornia. It is also stated that ex-Premier
Gibson will return to Honolulu, and again
resume the helm of statesmanship, as soon
as be is assured that bis fair friend the

The international conference on sugar
bounties, held in London, has temporarily
suspended proceedings and it has been con
sidered a success. The delegates, who came
from Austria, Hungary, Belgium, Brazil,
Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Italy,
Russia, Spain and Sweden, signed a protocol
for the entire abolition of sugar bounties,
which will be submitted to their respective
Governments for ratification. The results
will be made public in March, when the dele
gates will meet again. In the meantime it
is expected that tbe present high price of
raw sugar will be maintained, and may very
probably go still higher. This will indeed
be good news to Hawaiian planters. On tbe
other hand, the Louisiana sugar crop is un
usually heavy, and a gain of ten per cent, is
claimed turougu tue use of the dinusion pro
cess over other methods.
The Havemeyer Sugar ltefinery Company
of New York retires from business this year,
