(P.om Thnradny Advertiser.)
An autopsy held yesterday afternoon
oa the remains of Bechard Creaaatt,
revealed the fact that the deceased had
come to his death by drinking enrbollc
acid, lr. A. N. Sinclair performed the
autopsy. . Coroner Koaa will complete
the inquest today. 1
When Cressafr's remains were found
in a room iu one of the cottages which
he wa intoreatetl in At Waikisi, Bv' ter
Herbert was summoned. An examina
tion of the remains revealed no out
ward trace of poison and it waa at tirst
thought tbut i rrssaty had come to bit
kbtn from natural causes. - ' ; 1
Tho reason for thcro not being any
traces of the Aery acid is explained by
Doctor Kim-lair. Finul all judications
and front the fact that a partially fillcM
wino glass was on the bureau with a
faint truce ct the acid still ia it the
theory is that Creasaty mixed the dead
ly fluid with the wine and then swal
lowed it. The aiitursy showed that the.
acid hnd not begun to burn until it fand
passed bia throat,, the alcohol ia the
wine having aentrolized the afi-i. It ia
further elaimeil that after drinking the
terrible potion, Crematv tonic another
glass of wine to destroy alt traces ef
the poison in his mouth. ' '(
Lived for t wahty Mlhota.
'It in the Opinion of ' Doctor Herbert
that the man lived tor it least twenty
minutes after taking the poison. . Tht
burneif (omlitioh ot the .stoinach tnd
membranes indicated the- suffering
throucb which Cressntv passed t-efore
ho was finally relieved bydeath.
II. d. Miidlertitrh, wno lives in a
cottage oa the premises stated yester
day that ho was with reasuty Tnealay
m Mb t until eight-thirty o'clock. Mid-
dleditch claims that i'rrtmnty was in
the beat of spirits while'he was talking
to hi hi and made no complaint aa to

He was seen at six-thirty o'clock
ycKWniay morning by several of the
roomers at l reseat y a. Jle was wait
ing about on the lawn, . It. Is said that
this waa bis usual custom each morning.
A J ajtanese woman discovered him
lying dead on hia bed an hour later.-'
. Beveral theories have been advanced
as to the motive Creasaty had in tak
ing his life. . Among others that he bat
bad several financial reverses- in real
estate deals of late. He vacated his
offices oa Merchant street about two
months ago claiming that he could not
make a success in that lino of business
The theory advanee.t by H. 0. Mid
dleditch, who was his constant com
panion for the past two niontha, in,
that awing to poor health and the con
stant pain in the region of his heart,
caused hita to commit the deed.. '
' "I cannot make myself believe that
Cressaty committed suicide' stated
Middleditch last night. "Although he
complained of suffering great pain fn
the region of his heart from time to
time he never seemed depressed over
the fact. Although he met with some
revefscs in business matters lately he
never seemed to brfcod over them.""' '

New Celling Terms Adapted at
Adjourned Ileptirif of Hew
York Sugar Trada t&eX Month
Will Fenalize IH-h-Crade Eawg,
According to Hawaii Producers'.
(From Thursday Advertiaor.) -When
A. M. Nowell, mnflfcger bt the
Sugnf Factors Company was asked yes
terday to explain the "new selling
terms" adopted at the adjourned meet
ing of the Nc.w Vork Sugar trade De
cember 10, 1913. h explained the sip
uution as follows: . -
"They new regulations of the suirar
board," he snid, "practically penalize
all high grade raws. Hereafter the
market will pay less premiums oa high
Srnde sugars and there will be leaa '
eductions for low grade raws.'
"The new ruling will Undoubtedly
affect us to some extent, because tho
New York price has been Sxed oa tho
basis of 90 per cent eeatrifugals. Ha
waiian sugars shipped in 1913 aver
aged 97 V4 degrees polnriacope teat, and
even on larger prices there will be
smaller bonuses paid In 1U14." v
The new , ruling may. result, In a
chango of style in ths sugar manufac- -tured
in Hawaii, but Mr. ..Nowell said -he
was not prepared to state that such
would be the ease. Kach of the plan
tations would undoubtedly do what it
thought beat, he saiiL
The "parity" of raw sugars on the
New York market is arrived ,at by
irbitfarily adding to -the price of raw
beets in the Hamburg market, freight,
insurance, the differential value to the
refiners and other minor charges.
The . average .differential between
Hamburg 4ws and New York raws for
tho twelve months ending December 31, :
IU13, was $IU0 por ton, and is tho
highest point to which It has risen in
good many years.. At this differential
Hamburg raw sugars will not come into
the New York market. ' ' j
"It haa been as low as 12.08. in
19nor" said Mr. Nowell. "An accu
rate record la always kept by the Su
gar Factors, and every indication ia
that thia coming' year beeanse of tha
relations of demand and supply the
New York market will be safe against
ths active competition of European
raws," - '-;' ' ''..
With nigh differentials in our favor
Hamburg raws rantiot be profitably im
ported into the New York' market, In
support of this view the last market
letter received by the Sugar Factors
from their New York Correspondent,
under date of January 9, advises tbat
for the first time in thirty years free
Or preferential raw sugars are offered
in sufficient volume to more than en
tirely supply, ths requirements of the
United Btates without Importing duty
paid sugars. 1 '. " ..' i , -:
Tha New, York correspondent further
states that ihis means that tbero will
be a reduction in the' coat of raw su
gars, to the refiners. It ia predicted
that the beat method of securing perm
anency of low coat of refined to the
ronaumera la to increase the preferen
tial crops by a small duty on raws to
encourage home production. In othep.
Words if tlis Hawaiian and other dom
estic? growers are forced out of exist
ence by. free trade the American con
sumer will be placed at the mercy ot
onditions over which be has no eon
lrol and against which there would be
no relief. ''-.'. -, - '.''.',:.."''"'.
