Snar: There is nothinc particularly
new to Dote concerning the condition
of the local market, excepting s fur
ther decline in prices of refined. The
demand for this article continu es light,
and the Refinery closed. Prices of
refined were reduced here on the 24th
ultimo to the basis of 5lc for granu
lated; Dec 4th, oc; Dec 11th, 4ic,
since which time they have continued
unchanged, excepting for export, and
this price was reduced on Dec 19th to
the basis of Qc for granulated. The
"Western Sugar Kefining Company's

have nothing of encouragement or
special importance to note concern
ing the ceneral situation of the sugar
trade, as" conditions remain much the
same as last advised. Prices both, in
this country and Europe, although
having previously reached the lowest
point ever known, have still further
declined. The principal cause of te
depression is overpnjducticn, wiu Ji
is about the same in all the countries.
In addition to the immense beet crops
of Europe which are now pressing upon
the markets of the world, there will
soon be 1,000,000 ons, crop of Cuba,
for sale, besides the crops of the other
"West Indies, which are all promising
welL The conditions in the "United
States, owing to tariff changes
whereby refiners claim there can be
no profit for them on account of the
small margin between raw and re
fined, will also tend to continue the
depression indefinitely. Prices are
fast approaching a point where exist
ence will be a struggle for life for pro
ducers. London quotations for beets since

Germany is fast waking up to the
situation and will make a desperate
effort for the sugar trade of the United
States. The Keisctg "as discussed

in Germany for jfce taxation of sugar

imposts plcHi on Gerniar. sugar by

that the pgettioo of the German sugar
industry was most distressing, and
th'. it "3S very important that some
thitr should be done for an industry
whii j employed 400,. . people. The
uAQgvr he claimed arose from: the de
rres oorwiiuon of husbandry; the
farm- r. ficdiBg that, his grain did net
pay, i::ew beets. He concluded with
rwnlieading an increase in the ex
port duty on sugar, and itwasalsode
clared that o of the reasons for the
depres?. a in the scgc- : adustry was
that tie United Stat . liposed a spe
cial dutv on bounty-paid sugar.
It is impossible to say whether our
present laws regarding sugar will be
altered, but it is not probable that
anything will be done during this
session of Congress. The Secretary of
State, Gresham, has notified the
Spanish. Government that if they con
tinue to discriminate against the ex
ports from this country to Cuba in
favor of Canada, it will certainly in
vite retaliation, under the Act of 1S90,
against Cuban sugars.
Should this policy be pursued and a
heavy prohibition duty placed on
Cuban sugars, it will be a serious
blow to the Trust, as the sugars of
necessity will be refined elsewhere
and eventual I v reach this country.

to take charge of the Mission's
bindery. He remained in the ser
vice of the Mission until about

gaged in the general merchandise
business under the firm name of

years. Captain Godfrey, the presi
dent of the company, has implicit
confidence in Captalu Si csfcjjm's sea
manship qualities and points
that go to make up a thorough cap
tain. Many people along the front have
long been familiar with the coolness
displayed by the Hall's commander.
When the steamer comes into port he
can be seen on the upper deck with a
cigar in his mouth and his right hand
on the engineer's bell. He brings the
steamer up to the wharf and gets her
alongside with as much ease as a cox
swain would land a gig. He is thor
oughly acquainted with this port and
all others along the Kona coast of
Hawaii. As is well known, his ves
sel plies between here and Punaluu.
Captain Simerson was born thirty
eight years ago at Napoopoo, South
Kona, Hawaii. "When he was eight
years of age his parents moved to
Maui, where he attemded school for
about four years. He went to sea first
when he was about seventeen
years of age: he sailed before
the mast He was an in
quisitive youth and the captain of
the schooner took enough interest in
the lad to teach him navigation. The
young sailor, after a year's time, was
made mate and four years later he
was capable of running a vessel him
self. He was then made captain of
the schooner "Jennie." He after
wards took charge of both the schoon
ers Prince and Liboliho.
After a time Simerson was given
the position of purser on the steamer
Iwalani. He occupied a similar posi
tion on the Planter and later when
the W. G. Hall arrived fresh from the
shipyard he was placed In charge of
tne pursers omce. reacted in tuat
capacity until he was made captain.
He was considered a most obliging
purser and was well-liked by all pas
sengers who traveled on the boat He
enjoys as much popularity at present.
Captain Simerson is a married man
and has three children, the eldest of
whom is now 17 years of age. His
lamuy lives in town.
The steamer W. G. Hall was built
inlSS4 by Hall Brothers. She was
named alter one of the builders. She
has been running to Punaluu aince
her advent in Hawaiian waters. She
is considered a staunch craft and is
popular with travelers. She will soon
be fitted out with an incandecsent
system. Then she will compare fav
orably with any island steamer leav
ing tnis port.

submitted. The proposed addilious
will contain a gymnasium about to by
65 feet in size, four large newlass
rooms, closets, bath-room3, locLera,
and every convenience of a well equip

After this report, the members p -es-ent
were asked to examine the pi ins
for the gymnasium. After a gent ral
discussion, it was agreed that he
plans, as corrected and adopted by he
committee, be adopted by the assock -tlou,
and that bid3 be called for. M
Corbett stated in this connection that
he thought they were perfectly safe
in doing this, since he had $10,0(0
pledged up to date. Not a very exte -sive
canvass has beeu made. The youn
men in the different stores of the ci.y

The plans displayed by Mr. Ripley
show that a great deal of ingenuity
has been exercised to make the new
gymnasium, and in fact the whole Y.
M. C. A. building a place of comfort.
The present building will undergo a
treat many changes, the main idea
eing easy communication between
the rooms. Partitions will be torn
down and moved, doors will be
changed and steps removed. The
gymnasium will cover the whole of
the vacant lot next to the present
building and will be of the same style.
The floor will be three feet below
ground, so that about seven feet of
steps will have to be decended from
the main building before the gymna
sium proper can be reached. Outside
the present reading room, and run
ning up to the gymnasium which will
project out to the sidewalk, will be a
veranda continuous with the present
landing. Another will project frohi
the other side of the landing in front
of the secretary's present room.
