Dying Struggles of the Illegal
Some Peculiar Complications
( Correspondence of Che
The end is at hand.
future no man knowcth.
The Beu.inix has from time to
time, published your correspond
ent's conservative statements re
garding Hie doings of the Sugar
Trust, u concern with which Ha
waiia.ua liileicsl are now most ser
iously involved. The last state of
this concern is worse than the liist.
It lias all along been a cause for
regret that Hawaiian planters and
their agents ever decided to ally
themselves to the Trust. It would
have been far better, indeed, for
Hawaiian interests had the business
arrangements that existed with the
American Uefincry per ie, remained
undisturbed. They were of a satis
factory nature, and planters knew
their sugar was being purchased and
would be paid for by a responsible
party of men.
One of the gravest mistakes, and
there have been many, ever made
by planters and their representatives
in the Honolulu community, wa.
their allegiance to the Sugar 'Trust
of New York. This is now being
plainly realized, but too late.
As already reported by last mail,
the New York Courts have decided
that the Sugar Trust is an illegal
combination, a thing of paper, with
no standing and no responsibilities.
This decision will, without doubt,
be maintained by the full Court. Jn
the meantime the North Hivcr 15c
linery is without n charter and has
been enjoined from further transac
tions of business. As this relineiy
has been dismantled, nnd its machin
ery turned over into the Trust's
grasp, the direct effect of tho Courts
decision will not be so severely felt.
But a. precedent has been estab
lished, and a similar suit has been
hi ought, and is being pushed, against
the Haveinoycr and Klder rcllncry
company of Now York.
Tho decision in this case will, of
course, ho tho same. As the lluve
jnoycr roflnery is in active operation
it is of vital importance to Jluuui
iuns that tlioy should understand
tlio subsequent course of event,
which will apply equally to tho Ameri
can TJollnory In Han Frnneihco. The
nppoinliiiont, by tho Court, of a re
ceiver will he llio first stop. The
properly will thou lio valued and
(llgnyftori uf at iiblio auction. The

lmllvlfiunl stock-lidltlors of tlio varl
otts rollncrics thai nil tho trouble
falls. They linyc given away their
laml, buildings mid machinery ; they
have broken the law of incorpora
tion. Tlioj lose their properly and
they can nho be pioeculed ciimin-ally.
Uringing this right home to Hono
lulu, the cause and effect will be
more directly understood, llawai
intis, who were interested and held
slock in Hie American llellnery
Company, gave up their properly
voluntarily to Hie Trust. It is now
held and owned by a few persons as
so-called ollleers of the Trust. They
have no position in law and there is
nothing whatever to prevent them
from disposing of Hie properly and
putting Hie proceeds in their pock
ets. Mr. Theodore llavemeyer has
gone to Ktirope. INIr. Searlcs, who
is a notorious schemer lias heaped
more abuse upon Hawaii and lia
waiians than any other man living.
The third leader in the 'Trust
Affairs is lawyer Parsons who has
been so ignominiously defeated in
the recent suit. If his business
management of the Trust be on a
par with his legal management,
then those who hold Trust stock are,
indeed, in a sorry plight. It is al
most beyond comprehension how
men in their sane senses could give
up Hie tangible for the intangible,
their valuable pioperty for worthless
paper, for there is not a soul to be
found who will touch Trust stock
with a pair of tongs, although it is
bcimr peddled for sale all over the
Nest take the ease of the plan
ters, the bone and sinew of Hie
Islands, the producers of the main
product. What is their position to
day? They have a contract for the
sale of their sugar to the Trust, an
illegal concern which has already
cheated them out of their just dues
by manipulating the market quota
tions iu New York, and causing un
reliable and dislioucit figures to be
sent to Messrs. Williams, Dimond
& Co., upon whose monthly circu
lars the planters rely for accuracy
of information on sugar matters.
Having been robbed of thousands of
dollars already, and w itli no means of
iedress, Hie planters arc thus bound
for several years to come. They
have not the American I?cfinery and
men they know to deal with, but an
irresponsible set who will slick at
The American Hennery will most
assuredly lose its charter witlnn a
few month-.. The laws of incorpor
ation are even more strict in Cali
fornia than in the Slate of New
York, and these laws have been
violated by the American Kelinery
stock-holders. Their property will
lie placed in the hands of a receiver
but the company will forever be en
joined from transacting business.
Who will repay the stock-holders
tho money they have invested?
What will they realize upon their
Trust certificates? These are not
the only grave questions that face
Hawaiians, but there is yet the more
important one. What will they do
with their sugar? 'The American
Refinery with its closed doors will
be as if it had never existed. Car
goes of sugar will be coming for
ward itli no relineiy to use it, and
no purchaser to pay ior it. What
will become of the staple product of
the Hawaiian Islands, and what will
become of its producers? No money
and no market for either.
The dishonest' of the Trust will
shortly be exposed through the
frauds in the department of the Ap
praiser at New York. There the
clnet importer of sugar is the 1 rust,
and the Secretary of the Treasury
is in possession of information
showing that gigantic swindles have
been perpetrated in Hie importation
of sugar at New York. The sugar
lias iieen undervalued, resulting in
a loss of customs duties amounting
to millions of dollars from this
source alone. All of the prominent
odicials in the sugar branch of the
Appraiser's olllce have been prompt
ly dismissed, and it is very evident
that the fraud attempted by the
Trust iu San Francisco with their
Java sugar was but a continuation
of the frauds that have been more
successfully carried out in New
Yoik for years past, and by which
the Trust of late and the individual
rellners formerly have robbed the
revenue of millions oi dollars. This
fact is merely staled to give 1 lawai
ians an idea of the character of the
men to whom they have bound them
selves for years, and whoso preda
tory tactics have extended to a falsi
fication of sugar values for Hie pur
pose of robbing the growers and
producers of Hawaiian sugar by
paying less therefor than they weio
entitled to according to the real

The Senate has pitssed its Tariff
law which includes a reduction of
fifty per cent in the duties on sugar
and the payment of a bounty of one
cent per pound upon all sugar manu
factured in the United Stales. This
bill will not become law during the
present session of Congress, but it
undoubtedly will be passed at Hie
next session when the Republicans
will have a majority in the House as
well as in the Senate, and will also
bo suppoited by the Southern De
mocrats. Hawaiians should be pre
pared for the passage of this law,
which means that they will receive
on an average fcnu per ton less ior
their sugar crops. The bounty for
American sugar will be guaranteed
hy contract with the Government
for ten cars.
OUR SAN FRANCISCO LETTER.
The labor problem here in Cali
fornia is not an easy one to solve.
The "Kxaniiiier" insists upon it that
"none but white labor should be
employed" and in tlio same breath
declares that "a stilllcient supply
of white labor cannot be obtained."
The other papers profess to detect a
covert desire on the part of the
"Examiner" to nullify Hie Exclusive
Act, and the quarrel resembles in
its essential particular the difference
of opinion on the same subject now
prevailing in Hawaii Nei.
There is in Morris & Kennedy's
gallciy a collection of pictures that
are a surprise to artist folks. There
is a group of kittens, a fac-simile of
Lambert's famous water color that is
simply charming. There is a pair
of etchings in antique scroll form
(something new and beautiful), that
is the best thing of its kind I've
ever seen, and this morning at pri
vate view, I have seen a 100,000
collection of paintings thai arc as
a whole infinitely superior to any
thing shown before on this coast.
Looking at lliem I am convinced
that if an exhibition was gotten up
for the world's delectation, of the
beautiful and characteristic scenery
of the Hawaiian Islands it would be
a grand success. If the llii.i.inix
will inaugurate this exhibition your
correspondent will do all he can in
his humble way as writer and lec
turer to carrv the thing through to
The plans and specifications for
the new market in Honolulu are be
ing examined b -everal firms here,
and there is but little doubt that a
fine building will soon be erected.
It will be an "immense" improve
ment and no small attraction for vis
itors to the islands.

very well and probably soon to be

conceit was held at the vestry of the
Central Union Church, the sub
ject being "Missions." Uev. Dr.

address on a trip to Alaska. She
stated that missions had been es
tablished there for the natives. Very
little could be done with the older
people, the woil; was principally
among the young. Schools had
been established, and Hie bright
pupils were sent to the States to be
educated. There was not a single
church established for the while
people. She leceived a note from
one place where a sermon had never
been heard, and going there, spoke
in a saloon to over oUO men. The
address was exceedingly interesting.
IIr. Scholt., who took his daughter
from here to Cermany lo be treated
for leprosy, some eight or ten
mouths ago, returned on the Aus
tralia yesterday. Miss Stoltz was
taken to Dr. I'nna's hospital, in
