&Kt Referring to the cargo of sugar now
vfrn riti?haKd at Section 2o. 4 of the
seawall, ia this city, I beg to say that
samples are being takea as fast as the
packages are delivered oa the dock. The
samples, as far as takea, have been compared
with the "Dutch staadard," and
all are found to be uader 13. Ia the
-meantime, however. I was Informed that
Kthe entire cargo had been subjected to a
tjUiScoionnj: process, oy wiuw uw
osuermse nigu m wjv.. ku uwu
below the 13 standard. Ihis
Iformition I deemed of sufficient impor
tance to warrant me in. entermg into
ssra an. iavestisritioa ot the matter as
woold prove the correctness ot the charge.
I have siren the matter alt the attentioa
that the limited time given me for
would allow. I have submitted
samples to various chemists and experts,
bat have gamed but little mxormauoa ot
value iromaay of them except the information,
contained ia the report of Dr.
Bowie, which I herewith attach. The
spsalt of Dr Bowie's, scientific test leads
me to believe First, that the sugar m
uestloa has been artificially colored j
aecoad, that the sugar, before it was subjected
to the discoloring process, was ia
color 13 D S. third, if the sugar which
ia still ia tae vessel proves to be the same
turn the whole cargo as betweea 13 and
I" Dutch Standard.

sugar is handled now at a loss by all
" wholesale dealers, but they are compelled
to handle thus to accommodate
customers. The forces of competition
:the facility of production have reduced
prices ia the last ten years.
'-Is there anything to prevent the
Sugar Trust from advancing prices any
day?" asked Senator Arnold.
" Yes. because if the Sucar Trust ad-
.vaaced prices too high we should buy of

An Apt rnpil.
Harry Grabe Manmant, the Govern-meat's
ward ia the art of engraviag in
Boston, has sent a specimen of his best
work. The subject is an elegant drawing-room
with all the accessories, supposed
to be ia the house of Mr. G. D. Gilman,
who has been taking a kindly interest in
the young Hawaiian. The "execution of
the picture is very fine, the details being
wrought with great delicacy. It is indeed
suggestive of the old-time steel engraving
ia the fineness of its lines, while
the drawing is very accurate in alignment
and perspective. Henry is taking
a course ia drawing. He actually enjoys
the north-east waiter, iastead of finding
it a trial after his balm v native clime.
