WASHINGTON, January 12. Tbo
committee on investigation of tho
Sugar Trust continues its sittings but
tho hearings will probably bo concluded
before this letter reaches Honolulu.
W. G. Cook of New York, woll known
to tho sugar planters of Hawaii, has
been a witness before tho committco
nnd probably will return hero again
for further testimony. Mr. Wlllett, of
Willctt & Gray, also well known to
those of Hawaii interested in sugar
production, has been a witness in
days. B. P. Rithct is on tho way
here from the Pacific Coast to testify
but has apparently been dolayed by
tho storms.
It is felt hero that tho testimony
brought out ,hns been favornblo to sugar
producers but it is not oxpocted
that this will be convincing to tho
Democrats on tho committco. They
brought a fow farmers hero from Colorado
some time ago, who testified that
tho manufacturers of beet sugar got
all tho profits nnd that tho growers
of tho sugar beets, othorwlso tho
farmers, obtained no particular benefit
from tho industry. ThiB was followed
by testimony of a great numbor of
farmers who declared that tho Colorado
testimony was misleading and
that tho industry was of great benefit
to tho farmers.
Good Tariff Arguments.
Republicans of tho committco have
laid the foundation for good arguments
against, the reduction of duties. Representative
Hinds of Maino, dovelopod
during the testimony of Mr. Willctt,
that sugar is ono of vory fow commodities,
thn price of which has not been
advanced materially in recent yoars.
This was shown to bo tho enso in spito
of tho fact that sugar has boon "hot I
Bioused" to use a favorito expression
of Chairman Hardwick of tho investigating
committee for many years a'nd
"by many governments. It has been
fprotocteil by duties, encouraged by
'bounties nnd all that.
Nevertheless it is not unlikely that
the committco will recommend a reduction
in duties on sugar. That is
expected in any event. What tho
Democratic house nnd tho Republican
will do with referenco to a revised
of sugar duties at this session is
still very much of a guess. No ono
attempts to say what the prospects aro
at least no ono whoso word is of
any weight nt the Capitnl. Thoro has
een tnilt or revising tno sugar
"but tho ways and means
is taking no steps in that direction
for the present.
Lorimcr May Bo It.
With tho changes in tho chairmanships
of senate committee, over which
tho senate leaders havo been dickering
for several weeks, it now looks ns
rthough Senator "William Lorimcr of
Illinois, who has been under investigation
as to his right to a seat, would
head the committee on Pacific Islands
and Porto Rico. This is tho committco
"that "handles much of fho legislation
affecting Ilnwail in tho senate. Many
changes "in phalrnmnships havo
from tho death of Senator Fryo of
Maine, who was tho chairman of tho
oommitteo on commerce. All Republican
senators have chairmanship nnd
when an important chairmanship llko
that on commerco is vacated it causes
n shift all along tho lino and senators
sometimes hesitate, as tlioy have been
doing this session, whether they will
retain the chairmanships thoy havo or
-accept others that may bo vacated.

In a spccinl mall sack, and a registered

Walter F. Frear to tho charges
mado by Delegate Kuhio, will go on

city it will go across tho continent in
charge of a special deputy inspector

Tho package itself is heavy, and is
addressed "To the Honorable, tho Sec-rotary

is an official communication of an officer
of tho government in compliance
with instructions received. But it will
go quite a little better than
and will bo given care that is unusual
with ordinary mail matter.
Governor Frear has been hard at
work upon his report for several
weeks; and when it wns completed last
night tho territorial executive heaved
a sigh of Tellef. Tho request for a
reply to tho allegations mado by the
delegate meant a lob of work for Mr.
t'rear, and the compllnnco with the interior
department's desires meant toil
early and late. Hut tho Governor did
not wnsto time thinking about tho
start; lie just took off his coat and vest

tho mais of records in tho territorial
offices for the data which were to ho
used in contradiction of tho specific
charges made by Kuhio.

rather kept right on "sawing wood"

Tho Governor's reply in itself covers
ninety-two typewritten pages of legal
cap, or about fifty thousand words. All
through tho document there aro references
to half a hundred exhibits which
accompany tho direct answer. These
"exhibits" consist of documents and
records from every dopartment of tho
territorial government which is concerned
oven remotely in the allegations
made by tho Delegate.
Oovenor Frear in his Tcply makes no
use of general statements, hearsay evidence,
or matter that is not to the
point. Instead, tho territorial executive
simply goes nhead in his specific
denial of a specific cliargo and tlion
produces his evidence, the records of
tho government, ns witness to tho
truth. "No, I do not caro to .discuss
the iinturo of my reply," said the Governor
Inst night. "It would not bo

LOS ANGELES, January 31.-Great
uneasiness exists among thoso connected
with tho defenso in tho late Mc-
ftaiuaru trials which has now become
the defense in the resulting cases, over
an announcement made yesterday that
the indictment of Attorney Clarence
Darrow was the direct result of a confession
by Rcrt Franklin to District
Attorney Fredericks and his aid.
The prosecution claims that Franklin,
who nominally held tho position of
chief of detectives for tho McNamnra
defenso, has. agreed to toll tho entire
truth of tho bribery matters incident
to tho famous trial in which ho was a
prominent figure and for which bo was
himself arrested.
It is bolieved here that thoro will

Governor Carter is not in touch with
tho administration nt Washington, says
former Governor Carter, who retnrncd
yestcdny from ono of tho quickest trips
on record to San Francisco and return.
This statement, which ho sayB ho
mado on tho eve of sailing, in an interview
with an afternoon paper, is
quite different to tho intorvlcw that
paper published after Mr. Cnrtcr was
safe at sea, when it quoted him to tho
effect' that Governor Frear was "not
in touch with the people."
Where tho Governor falls down, says
Mr. Carter, is that "his recommenda
tions for appointments aro ignored nnd
by submitting to this ignoring, in my
opinion, Governor Frear belittles the
dignity of tho high office of Governor
of the Territory of Hawaii."
"I believe it would bo a tactical .
mistake on tho part of tho President to !
reappoint Governor Frear." savs tho.

been in close enough touch to mako his
reappointment wise. In my opinion tho
position of Governor is such a ono that
wo should nil recognize it as tho propor

"Independent of Frear."
"With the relations that now exist,
it seems to me to bo bettor to bo independent
of Frear or to oppose him,
rather than attempt to get anything
through him.
Three Times Turned Down.
"TJiroo times Governor Frear's rec
ommendations hava been icuored in
ASaslungton, or havo not been acted
upon, and that means tho offlco ho holds
lias beon belittlod. Boinc ignored and

most important for tho futuro that wo

"This does not reflect, in any way,
upon Frear's integrity or the efficiency
oi the local administration.
"Tho opposition to Frear has grown,
I think, because of his failnro to demand
a hearing from Washington when
tho occasion arises for such a demand."
Opposed to Taft.
Tho former Governor was asked his
opinion ns to the coming presidential
fight and gave it as freely as ho spoko
of his opposition to Governor Frear.
"I am not a Taft man," ho said. "I
thing it would bo unfortunate if ho
were nominated. I should not bo a bit
surprised if Boosovclt would appear in
tho arena, and be persuaded to run.
Ho is ready to do whatover he thinks
is his duty, regardless of -results. Ho
never plays safe, but right, although if
ho bo nominated it could "only bo at
tho sacrifice of his own good name. I
don't believe that cither ho or Taft
will bo elected. It looks to mo too much
liko a Democratic year. I think if
Taft is nominated ho will surely bo
defoated, but I don't see how he can
withdraw. It is up to tho President
to holp his party along. I don't think
he has been a successfas President. Ho
has a fine character; however, and
would have mado a fine judge."
Charged with Silence.
Col. Samuel Parker, who returned
homo on tho Mongolia, had Iittlo to
say about Kuhio or tho Governor. Tho
genial Sam was voluminous with silence
concerning lie legato Kuhio and,
lik charges, and declined even to Bay
who ho thought would bo tho next Governor.
Tho colonel is in good health, and
will bo on hand nt tho wharf to
homo his chum, tho Delegate, in
a weok or so.
Just boforo Colonol Parker left San
Francisco, tho San Francisco Examiner
had tho following story of. bint of tho
colonel's amibition:
Colonel Parker's Ambition.
"Colonel Samuel Parker of Honolulu,
former chancellor of tho exchequer
to tho late King of Hnwaii, and
one of tho most hospitablo natives of
tho Paradiso of tho Pacific, has returned
from a fsit to Washlngtpn and is
Staying at tho Stewart. Although political
managers, nor Parker personally,
havo given any public intimation of tho
colonel's ambitious, there is a rumor
preceding hpn to Honolulu thn't he is
afilictcd with a strong desiro for gubernatorial
honorB in tbo Island Torritory,
and tho samo rumor says that his mission
to Washington and his return to
Hawaii ut this particular time has to do
with a boom that will be launched soon
