5s 2t,d: 19th. 9s ld; 20th. our latest
telegram, no change. We quote from C.
Csaraikow's latest London circular of
February 4th, as follows:
The French Chamber has now voted
most of the clauses of the new sugar
bill, giviag exporters a bounty of fcs.
4.50 on refined, fcs. 4 on minimum, 9S
per cent, crystals and fcs 3.50 on basis
of 100 per cent for raw sugar of the
next crop, whilst half these bounties are
voted for old sugars. The outlay is to
be met by a tax on refiners, who will
charge higher prices to the consumer.
The bill has not been placed before
the Seaate yet, but is is expected that
it will ultimately pass, thus giving
prompt crystals an extra bonus of 9U
per cwt, which would reduce the present
export quotation to about 10s, f. o.
b unless Paris prices improve on the
actual passing of the law. The French
production used to be mostly in crystals,
and the law gives an additional
bonus of 3d per cwt. on new, and ld
per cwt. on old sugars to the maker
of 9S per cent crystals over the pro
ducer of 93-95 per cent cuite, but if the
export margin between the two kinds
gets much contracted, it -would counter
act the tendency to produce crystals.
It is not surprising that with the
probability of these bounties being
adopted, our market should have been
fiat during the week, and that prices
should have receded about 3d per cwL,
at which reduction, however, a steadier
tone set in. the German factories
refraining from pressing sales. The
opinion still prevails that at 9s
does not yield much profit, and
exteasiosf of sowings involves risks
with existing supplies, which require
onsideration. German factories are
ijing to form a syndicate for
prices of roots aad of sugar, which
will be difficult, but also (and this is an
interesting sign of the times) for
from Parliament a minimum al
lotment, in order to enable individual
factories to reduce sowings without
losing- their position. Many factories
7ouId rather contract less roots at a
"ower price than be obliged to pay more
.n order to get the fall area. sown. That
undoubtedly would be a better remedy
:han all sorts of syndicates, as France
wfll increase rather slowly, even with
'he fresh bounties. In 1S95,
a bounty of 2s 7d on the
crop (which rose to 3s Id on the
to' then, being sown, as against 7d
a Germany, she even reduced the area
by 2 per cent; same as other conn
probably at lower prices, she will
suddenly advance by leaps and bounds,
seems very doubtful. It is reported that
,8 per cent of the winter wheat is lost.
Iiad that thereore larger spring sew
ings ot grain win oe necessary, Dut
'beat is now about 32s 6d, against
7s 5d same time ago, with future de
liveries at a discount, and this should
sot be lost sight of. "
In Austria efforts are likewise made
:o complete the factories' syndicate for
regulating contracts of roots aad sales
of sugar; also, for limiting sowings.
From Belgium. Holland and- Russia
there is nothing new to report; the lat

The gentleman came to this city for

A petition, signed by the president

to the Senate and House of Representatives
yesterday calling attention to
the necessity for a representative from

Story of that
Bad Translation and i Board
Bill Caused Consternation.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 20. Tho ins
ands outs of Captain Palmer's wonderful
tale about the proposed assassination
of his beloved "Her Majesty"
have, at last come to the surface, and
if the deluded captain knew what It
was to be crestfallen, he would forever
hide his head in some faraway corner
of Cape Cod.
The "assassination' message came
over the telephone, and as Captain
Palmer, in his bland manner, spelled
out the Hawaiian words, he gradual!)
collected the following Hawaiian s
"Makemake kela molwahine
kela puaa kalua, a ne ilio kalua?" The
translation of this reads: '"Does the
Queen want roast pig or roast dog?"
As the Hawaiian of the original
fcentence was a little mixed, and the
captain and his Hawaiian court were
somewhat excited oer the. new sen
sation of receiving a message over the
long-distance telephone, the dispatch
was translated after the following
stle: "You are a dog If you donlt
keep the Queen from being roasted.
The captain and the court were so
wildly excited over this that none of
them thought to read the dispatch a
second time. The captain crumpled
up the paper on which he had written
the message, and danced about like
a snowball in a hot skillet He was
undecided whether to run before the
wind or take a reef in his topsails, and
tack to the protecting wing of President
Cleveland. While pondering oer
the situation he found a representative
of the Washington Star handy.
and told him the tale of woe. The
newspaper man knew a good thing
when he saw it, and by the use of a
few sailor terms, won the heart of the
marshal of the sea. During the conversation
Captain Palmer allowed the
piece -of papT containing the "as
sassination" message to drop on the
floor. The newspaper man kept his
eye on the paper.
The captain's tale was waxing tearful
when the hotel clerk came up and
handd him the bill for the Hawaiian
court expenses. Now. the Shoreham
; does not entertain its guests for noth
ing, and the captain was speechless
as he read the Items of the bill, and
came to a full appreciation of what a
bole it would make in whatremained
of the $15,000 which the Queen realized
by mortgaging all her property
before leaving Honolulu. The cap
tain hoped to get a slice of the
Queen's "sack," and was greatly
troubled whBn he found that if things
continued as they were the Shoreham
people would get the lion's share. He
thereupon decided that if his little
scheme was to be compMed he must
move the "court" to more secluded
and less expensive quarters.
He forgot all about the slip of pa
per and the "assassination message.
But the newspaper man didn't It was

Important post of Attorney General
ia the Hawaiian Cabinet, was a pas
senger on the steamer Australia whieh
arrived here yesterday from Honolulu,
says the San Francisco Call.
Mr. Smith is on his way to Washington,
D. C, where he will devote all
his energies and efforts In furtherance
of the movement which has for
Its object the annexation ot the Hawaiian
Islands to the United States.
With L. A. Thurston, president of
the Annexation Club ot Honolulu and
ex-Hawaiian Minister to the United
States, and Gen. A. S. Hartwell. both
ot whom arrived from Honolulu oa
the last steamer, he will proceed to
Washington without much delay and
confer with Minister Hatch.
These gentlemen have beea commissioned
to represent the Hawaiian
Government in the annexation matter.
Mr. Smith has no hesitancy ia
making his mission known, and he
says that no stone will be left unturned
in the campaign the are about
to inaugurate, to secure favorable action
from the McKinley administration.
"I go to Washington In the sole Interest
of annexation," said Attorney
General Smith. "Cable propositions
or any other issue will be relegated to
the rear. The Cabinet has deemed It
necessary, from the recent advice received
from Mr. Hatch, to have a representative
of thejHawallan Republic

1V1U OlVrt Aid.
NEW YORK, Feb. 20. The Sun's
Washington special says:
of Hawaii has turned her eyes
toward the rising star, and, instead of
calling to the outgoing administration,
she will direct her efforts to the In-,
coming one. She looks to
McKinley and the incoming Secretary
of State, Mr. Sherman, to help
her in her cause-. It is expected of
them that they will thwart the efforts
of President Dole and his followers to
secure Hawaiian annexation. "Her
Majesty" will remain In Washington
until after the Inauguration for the
express purpose of trying to defeat
the plans of tho annexationist. After
she has succeeded in this she will
then turn her attention toward securing
the Hawaiian throne.
Secretary Palmer said tonight that
Liliuokalani Is not In this country to
secure a pension from the American
Government He also took occasion
to deny a statement made some day
ago that "Her Majesty" would ask the
United States to recompense her for
the Hawaiian trouble. "Her Majesty"
said tonight that she would not return
to Hawaii until after the Inauguration
of Mr. McKinley.
Secretary Palmer said tonight- "It
is my sincere belief that President
McKinley and his Secretary ot St&te
will do nothjng to encourage Hawaiian
annexation. I know that Mr Sherman
Is opposed to the acquirement of
any more territory at this time, and I
