It is seldom that this community lias been called to mourn the loss of a member under circumstances equally peculiar and painful. Af ter many weeks of anxiety caused by the absence of any news from the esteemed citizen, Inst week brought the welcome tidings that he was alive among relatives in Philadelphia. It was true. Now, however, on this beautiful New Year's morning comes the sad in telligence that, a few hours before the occasion here for rejoicing over his safety, "Archie" Gilfillan had met death by accident. A Philadelphia dispatch of De cember 23 tells the story thus: "Archibald 1 Gilfillan traveled more than 6000 miles to visit rela tives in this, his native city, after an absence of thirty-seven yeats, only to meet death as the result of an accident. Mr. Gilfillan was thrown from a trolley car Sunday night at Thirty-sixth street and Woodland avenue. I lis skull was fractured and he died at the Uni versity Hospital today without re gaining consciousness. "At the time he was injured; Mr. Gilfillan was returning to the Lafayette Hotel from church in a Darby car with Mrs. R. II. Miller, a cousin, who lives at 3629 Ludlow street. When the car was stopped he started to alight, but before he got entirely off, the car started with a jerk and he was thrown, his head striking the pavement. The body has been removed to Mrs. Miller's home." The late Mr. Gilfillati's parents were residents of Honolulu for more than the Hie of a generation. They were highly esteemed Scottish bodies. Archibald Gilfillan was a machinist of great skill and, as if by curious fatality, when still a strong though elderly man, his life was cut short by accident as his stalwart son's was doomed to be. The elder Gilfillan was making re pairs to a sugar mill iu the Hilo district, a few years ago, when he fell and sustained injuries to the spine which resulted in a painful and lingering death. After her husband's death Mrs. Gilfillan paid a visit to her relatives iu Philadel phia, from which she returned in apparently robust health but it was not long before she also passed away. She died iu San Francisco. Archibald F. Gilfillan left Hono lulu some months ago for a vaca tion tour on the Mainland, with a possible chance of extending his journey to visit the home of his an cestors in Scotland. He attended the Triennial Conclave of Knights Templars in Louisville with cre dentials from the local Command ery, he being one of the most ac tive and prominent members of the Masonic fraternity in Honolulu. Then he went to Philadelphia from whence he sent word a good many weeks ago that lie was coming home forthwith. Henry II. Wil liams of Honolulu waited for him iu San Francisco, but hearing noth ing more from him returned by himself. When mail after mail ar rived without any further intelli gence from Mr. Gilfillan, his maliy friends here became anxious that something untoward might have happened to him. Their anxiety had reached the degree of alarm when, as already stated, news came last week that he' was amongst his friends iu Philadelphia. The lamented citizen had for many years up to his deatli been the wharf .superintendent for II. Hackfcld & Co OXNAItl) ASKS DF.IiAYS. Talks With President on Ucet Sugar Prospect. Washington, Dec. 21 Henry T. Oxnnrd, president of the American Beet Sugar Association, had an ex tended conference with the Presi dent today regarding the proposed reduction of the tariff on Cuban sugar. He urged that such reduc tion, if made, should be only after an exhaustive inquiry into the sub ject, in order not to injure Ameri can interests. Jn his own opinion a bounty to producers of raw sugar in the islands would be much more effective for the relief of Cuba than the reduction of the tariff. Oxuard suggested that the Fies idcut appoint n commission to in vestigate the entire subject, and asked that representatives of the beet sugar manufacturers, Louisi ana planters, the sugar refiners and Cuban planters be appointed, be sides n member of the Senate Fi nance Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee. He thought the commission should in vestigate two questions: (First, if the duty must be reduced, how California Fertilizer Works. Office : 534 Clay Street, Snn Francisco, Cat.

Oxnnrd said today: "We be lieve a bounty to the planters on raw sugar would solve the problem. If the duty is reduced the sugar trust will be the only beneficiary. Neither the planters nor the con sumers will get the benefit, but we want the whole subject investi gated, and arc ready to have a com mission examine the books and ac counts, send for witnesses and get at the facts concerning the entire sugar business of the country and its relation to Cuba."

A cable to the Chicago Record Herald from London says: War has been declared upon the women journalists of London by the male writers for the metropolitan daily press. The entire writing staff of men on the London Chronicle have united in a demand upon the pro prietors of that paper to reduce the pay of the women writers one-third. This demand was granted today and the pay of the women cut accordingly. The movement is spreading. It is said that the men writers on other big newspapers are contemp lating the demand for absolute dis missal of the women. Many of the women arc Americans. Editors have found out that bright .young American women can give splendid service as special writers, and their number employed on the daily press has been steadily increasing. A state of panic seems to have seized upon the young and old men employed iu journalism and the future is full of anticipa tiotis. An Attack of Pneumonia Warded Oil.
