THE NEW CONTRACT WITH THE SUGAR TRUST MAKES THE LON
DON PRICE AND NOT THE NEW YORK PRICE THE BASIS OF
SALE FOR HAWAIIAN SUGAR TRUST CAN NO LONGER MANI
PULATE PRICES TO OUR DISADVANTAGE.
Details of the new contract of the
Hawaiian planters with the sugar trust
are gradually Altering Into publicity.
Following the exclusive announcement
In The Star the other day that the San
Francisco differential had been elimin
ated from the new contract, It Is now
learned on the very highest authority
that the planters have gained another
victory In the new contract. It Is In
the matter of the basis of the price to
be paid.
In the old contract the price- to be
paid for Hawaiian sugar was the New
York quotation, that Is the price of the
last sale In New York of Cuban 96 de
gree centrifugals. This was always an
unsatisfactory basis to the planters, as
London Is the sugar market of the
world, and the price of sugar there
governs, directly or Indirectly, the
prices of raw sugar In all other markets.
BEEF PRICES
TO BE
.AN EFFORT WHICH IT IS RELIEVED WILL BE SUCCESSFUL IS
BEING MADE TO INDUCE GRAZIERS TO ACCEPT LOWER PRI
CES FOR THEIR CATTLE, THE REDUCTION TO GO TO THE CON
SUMER OVER PRODUCTION OF CATTLE.
There Is hope for lower prices for
beef. High prices are said to have so
stimulated production that there Is an
oversupply, and In order to bring up
demand to supply, to prevent a loss to
graziers, a movement Is on foot to re
duce the price graziers are to receive
for their fat cattle, the reduction to be
made for the benefit of the consumer.
The Metropolitan Meat Company has
sent out a circular letter, setting forth
the conditions of oversupply that con
front the producers and urging that a
general reduction In the price paid by
the Metropolitan Meat Company to the
graziers, from twelve cents a pound on
the hoof, to nine' cents a pound, be ac
cepted. , ((

Honolulu pBTUTt:
For
In the new contract the planters have
succeeded In securing for themselves
the London market price as the basis
of the price to be paid by the American
Sugar Refining Company for Hawaiian
sugar. In the new contract the price to
be paid Is the equivalent of the London
price on the day of arrival, less one
tenth of one per cent for the immediato
payment which the Trust has always
given.
It is believed that this takes It out of
the power of the trust to manipulate
prices to the disadvantage of the Ha
waiian planters. Some months ago, the
spectacle was presented of a New York
price very much lower than the London
price, and a large part of the crop of,
1901 was sold at this disadvantage. Now
the Hawaiian planters are to get the
price fixed by the demand and supply
of the world.
It Is considered a very notable vic
tory for Hawaii.
LOWER
It 1s said that the graziers are very
generally favorable to the Idea, and
that it is thought It will come about.
The graziers are Influenced by the fact
that the supply of beef cattle for this
market Is now far In excess of the de
mand for beef. The high prices foi
beef cattle which have prevailed for
several years past have stimulated the
raising of cattle. Ranch owners and
graziers have during the same time
greatly Improved the quality of their
cattle. The result Is that there are
more beef cattle In the islands than
there 1s any demand for. Now it Is
proposed by the reduction of the price
to the consumer to see if the demand
for beef will not be Increased suffi
ciently to absorb this overproduction.

TREATMENT OF OFFICERS.
SAN FRANCISCO, December 19. In
structions have been Issued by Assist
ant Secretary of the Treasury Arm
strong to examining officers, that on
the landing of foreign passenger ships
they are to treat merchandise belong
ing to the officers of the said vessels as
other goods on the vessel. In other
words, the otllcers are now classed as
passengers for the examination of any
dutiable goods in tlieir possession.
This order has bjn Issued largely
11s the result of trouble that the cus
toms otllcers at San Francisco have
had with otllcers of some foreign
steamers regarding the possession of
dutiable merchandise. Inasmuch as
the officers do not land here except to
make brief visits about the city thf
new order is not likely to have much
application at Honolulu. The ordei
practically does not effect this port as
the otllcers of steamers do not bother
about bringing their goods ashore at
Honolulu, any goods they may have
being landed at San Francisco.

NOT MORE THAN A BRIGADE OF
OUIt TROOPS WILL BE SENT TO
WASHINGTON AFTER ALL.
Governor Carter received a letter
this morning from General C. 11. Har
ris of Washington D. C, Chairman or
the Inaugurni Committee, asking ifor
Information regarding Hawaii's repre
sentation at the Inauguration of Presi
dent Roosevelt. He is particularly an
xious about the number of troops that
-awaiI proposes to send and he Inti
mates In a very delicate manner that
as the line will be very long "the com
mute would undoubtedly be embarrass
ed" If Hawaii should send more than
a brigade.
Under these circumstances it would
seem highly probable that Governor
Carter will not send more than a
brigade.
The inaugural ceremony takes place
on the historic March 4 and from all
indications It will be the most imposing
on record.
