desire to do justice in the matter, they should first appoint a com
mission to fully investigate and
a court of claims might bo established to pass on the claims, after
which it would merely be a olerical act of the legislature to appro
priate the amount necessary to

The News has evidently stepped on the toes of some of the
Coast papers,- in demanding that congress pass laws requiring

Liiey contain cane or beet sugar. It would, be as just to do this as
to require that oleomargarine be marked to distinguish it from
genuine butter, for it is true that beet sugar is useless for tho pur
poses of making either jellies or candy.

CANB VS. BEBT SUGAR.
A late issue of tho Mavi Xrwb,
publislu'd atWailulai, Island of Maui,
contains sm editorial as follows:

suirur and is nusoiuUMV useless ior
ieliv ii:-.iking purposes. The sugar
umiijz public of the non-susjar pro
ducing .sections of the Uultod States
should have the truth brought home
to thcr. The best way to do this
would 1 o to secure the passage of
laws bv Congress requiring sugar
bags or other containers to be label
ed Willi thi kind of sugar, cane or
beet. When the law makes this dis
tiuclio: as it should do for the pro
tection of consumers, people will
quickly learn how much preferable
cane mirar is to beet sujjar and
will ac t accordingly.
ugur, whether made from cane,
or beets is sugar, and, if the experts
(if the United Slates Department of
Agriculture are to lie believed, tliere
is no possible chemical test' that will
di-stiivvuish the one from the other.
Our Hawaiian friend is right to
stand bv his heme product, but his
zeal is more to be' commended than
his knowledge.' To show his error
we quote from Farmers Bulletin Xo.
;W, issued bv the Department of
Agriculture us follows:
"From all those raw sugarsfeanc
beet, palm, sorghum and maize) the
pure cane sugar or saccharose, as
known to the chemist, can be
erystalized out, and in every case
the sugar is identical in chemical
composition, appearance and prop
ernes. tJv no chemical test can
pure cryiluhizcd sacharose or "cane
sugar from theso dilierent sources
be distinguished. There is a popular
iinpres -ion to the contrary, however,
and it is often asserted that beet
sugar has less sweetening power
or that fruits preserved with it do
not keep as well, but this 6an only
be true of specimens that have been
imperfectly purified." The Oroville
winie tiie statement or facts in
the Iidietin !3 may or may uot be
true, yet the deductions therein
stated are demonstrably incorrect
As a matter of fact, it is impossible
to make jellies with beet sugar, nor
can candies be made from boot sugar
These are .two facts, the truth of
which has already been' de'monstrat
ed over and over again,' and if the
OroviKe Mercury wants' to be hones'
about if, let that paper have a test
made. . .
This being true, the importance of
securing legislative action iu the
mutter of having cane sugar and
beet sugar put iu sacks labeled with
the kind of sugar they contain, bo
Cipturintf Wild Horses.
There were some 1100 or more wild
horses snowed hi at Sieau inarsb
which about 'MO miles south west
of Silver Lake and 13 miles no' th of
Yainax Indian Agency, Oregon, by
the hcivy snow which set in with the
new century. Ths snow is said
beat kasl five feet deep yet, and
these loises are liable to starve to
deutli before spring, as the snow is
too deep for browsing. While these
horses arc wild bands who lave been
auoweu to roam ttie range and be
come as wild as deer, there arc many
well bred horses among the baud Who
fell into dissolute vayby gettin
into bad company. The increasin
value of horses caused" by tho wars
makes this-Sican marsh band worth
looking after, and tliir week the

hungry stomachs and imprisoned

An Easy Goln;j Bear,
I said to my cowboy friend, "Do
you know this bear?"
lie replied: "Waal, I reckon I do.
That's the old grizzly. He's tho big
gest b'ar in the park. He generally
minds his own business, but he ain't
scared o; nothin,- an today, you see,
he's been scrappiti, so he's liable to
'1 woukV iike to take his picture,"
said I, "and if you Will help me T am
willing to1 take some chances on it."'
'AH right," said he, with a grin.
"I'll stand by on the horse, an if he
cuarges you 1 II charge him, an I
kin knock htm down once, but I can't
do it twice. You better have vour
tree picked out."
The grizzly came on, and I snap
ped him at -10 yards, then again at
2(( yards, and still he came quietly
toward me. I sat down on tho gar
bage and made ready 18 3-ards 16
yards 12 yard.- 8 yards, and still
he came, while the pitch of Johnny's
protests kept risi.ig proportionately.
Finally at five yards he stopped and
swung his huge beared head to one
side to see what was making that
aggravating row in the tree top,
giving me a profile view, and I
snapped the camera. At the click
he tin ned on me with a thunderous
g-r-o-w-1, and I sat still and tremb
ling, wondering if my last moment
had conic. For a second he clared
it me, and I could note the little
green electric lamp in each of his
eyes. Then he slowly turned and
picked up a large tomato can.
"Goodness," I thought,, "is he
going to tlirow that at me But
he deliberately licked it out, dropped
it and took another, paying thence
forth no heed whatever either to me
or to Johnny, evidently considering
us equally beueath his notice. E.

Took Centuries to Build.
While the first stone of Cologne ea
thedral was laid on Autr. 13,-1248.
and the body of the edifice, was na
opened uDtil Aug. 15, 18-18,. GOO years
Uatcr to the very day, -, it was not.
however, until Aug. 15, -1880, that
the splendid structure was finally
reported completed, having thus
occupied in building the record time
of exactly C32 years.
Tho castle of Klugsgoberg, which
stands at the ' southern extremity
of Jutland, took 204 years from the
laying of the foundation stone to 'the
rigging of its,, master's banner, on
its highest flagstaff. Its foundation
stone was 'the skull of its builder's
bitterest enemy." Three months
after its laying Coung Jhorsing, the
builder of the castle, was killed. His
son was then in swaddling clothes.
He did not continue his father's
work nutil aged 24.
Tin Duomo, at Florence, was
commenced '; by Arnulfo in the year
1294,' the last block of marble being
placed iu position in the facade in
presence of the king on-May 12,' 1887,
a period of 593 years. Stray Sto
ries. The P. C, -Advertiser rather
amused at the Herald in comment
ing upon tho Tack of interest shown
by Hilo people iu tho matter of county
government. Hut in spite of this the
Hkkai.d would still comment. If
the peoplo of this- district want
county government they should get
in and yell for ii; if they are opposed
to it they should express their feelings
in.tho-ittpffc'r in a way that could be
understood. The meeting called was
unensiea oy a nan dozen persons
only so that nothing was dyne. It
would have been more satisfactory
to those who' called the meeting if
the people had assembled and oppos
ed the measure rather than to have
ignored the invitation. There can
be little doubt that Hawaii will have
county government; ' the necessity
for a meeting of citizens is recognized
by the members of the Legislature
who want to know the wishes of the
peoplo in the m-atter.-Hilo Herald.
