When the Iress was attacking Colonel Spreckels on Saturday last, because of his enterprise and success ful development of the sugar business and transportation, we are surprised it did not charge him also with being in alliance with the glucose makers to ruin his own investments. As fairly accuse him of that as of prejudicing the Reciprocity treaty by sustaining the price of sugar on the Coast. A more mischievous or unjust' accusa tion wa3 neter made. It was done, however, to give a handle to the op ponents of the treaty in San Fran cisco, who are personal enemies of Colonel Spreckels; but the effect, so far as it can have any, will be to in jure the entire sugar interests of the Kingdom. It is impossible to seg regate those interests, and therefore whatever is calculated to injure Colonel Spreckels in his business en terprises in this Kingdom must also injure all other cognate interests. There can be no two opinions on this tmbjeet. Wherefore the Press and its newspaper allies are working steadily to embarrass and injure those by whose grace and patronage they exist. But the Press, in making its attack upon Colonel Spreckels, had at its band the San Francisco Bulletin of April 23th, which presented the ex act facts of the case in an article on "Cheap Sugar." The Bulletin, is a reputable newspaper, and as it had not been by any means friendly (o the treaty on general principles, its statement of the facts may be ac cepted as being without prejudice in favor of what a large section of the California press terms "the Sugar Monopoly.' ' The Bulletin writes : The redaction of Uc. per pound made by the local refiners on April 27th, bring the cost of refined sugar down to a lower lerel than was ever known before in this city. The rate now is very near the New York price. Formerly there was a difference of about 2c. per pound between SSan Francisco reflnera,and New York refiners. This dif ference represented the cost of freight by J rail between the two cities. Ul Jate ,it has been reported that sugar, freight by 'rail was educed, owing to the great competition ex isting between rival routes. The arrange ments between dealers and local refiners have been such that overland freights have little influence on prices here. It haj been understood that the refiners were prepared to meet any change in the New York price or in freights, so that dealers have hid lit tle inducement to patronize New York re finers in whole or in part. The local re finers consider themselves abundantly able to supply and hold this market a3 against all competition from abroad. Very little Eastern refined sugar, there-fore, finds jti way to this city. The dealers do not pit tend to import it. Confectioners, canners anal other lare consumers have bought some ef their supplies at the East, and will probably continue to do so, as they can generally do quite as well there. Jn other words, that which the Press charges as an offense against Colonel Spreckels really was a clean cut business arrangement, which gave control of the Pacific Coast market to Hawaiian sugar producers. If his business sagacity had not come into play the Coast market would have been glutted with Eastern sugar, and our planters would have been com pelled to sell on any terms. But they were first guaranteed the Ma nila basis for their sugar, and when they were dissatisfied with it and askeel for the Cuba basis, that was conceded. Being again dissatisfied, they asked for a return to the Ma nila basis, which was accorded. In short, everything the planters asked was conceded. That is, Hawaiian planters were guaranteed the top world's price for their sugar, the Coast refiners taking the chance of realizing profits against all competi tion, foreign and domestic. This ar rangement was manifestly in favor of producers ; but the Press avers that the sugar makers of this Kingdom have been grievously swindled be cause, in addition to the price of their raws, the California Sugar Refinery did not also divide its profits upon re fined sugars among them. Could there be any accusation more illogical or unfounded than this ? Yet it is the main count in the long indictment against Colonel Spreckels which the Press brings against him. In truth, the facts are very greatly to his credit. The generfr accusation of , mo nopoly," which the opposition news papers bring against the gentleman named above, will be dealt with in good time. And we promise before we get through with the subject, how ever, to show the people of these Islands who have been the monopo lists and who have been their friends. Should we say anything that may seem harsh or severe of men of stand ing and reputation in the commu nity, it will be because the recital of the facts compel us, and not because we favor such a line of public dis cussion. But the Press, Gazette aud Blulelin leave the Advertiser no option in the matter. If, therefore popular idols are shattered during the investigation, their devotees may lay the blame at the doors of those who provoked the discussion, and whose unmanly and untruthful attacks upon the most enterprising aud public-spirited man that ever set foot on these Islands, compel a rigorous and exact comparison. THE AMERICAN CONSUL. The appointment by the President of a successor to the United States Consul, Mr. D. A. McKinley, is in violation of the spirit of the Civil Service Act. Upon taking office it was announced, on the President's behalf, that Consuls who had per formed their duty need not fear re moval ; but he no sooner found him self relieved of Senatorial supervision than he cut loose from the Civil Service regulations and began remov ing the most efficient officers in the service. General Moseby at Hong keng was an early victim, and Consul McKinley at Honolulu Is another, and an equaliy conspicuous example of the bad faith of the President. This gentleman has been four years and three months in oflice, aud for the first time in tiie hisiory of the Ha waiian Consulate, during his tenure of office it has been a source of revenue to the United States Government. Moreover, he has given'uuiform satis faction in the discharge of his duties, and there are on file in the State De partment at Washington the very strongest testimony of his unvarying urbanity, attention and accuracy in the dispatch of business. Yet at the first opportunity after the President had been relieved of political super vision, an honest, experienced and capable official is removed to make room for a political hanger-on from Ohio. If this is the way President Cleveland is going to give clfect to Civil Service reform, thou are his pro fessions the merest shams, and polit ical purity under a Democratic ad ministration a fraud. During all the term of Cansul McKinley's service he was only one day absent through illness. If he hael been absent half his time he would probably have been continued in oflice. GLUCOSE SUGAR. We find the following in an Amer ican exchange: The leading firms in the glucose business have issued a circular, in which they say $10,000,000 ft capital is invested in their business in the United States; it employs 4,575 workmen, who are yearly paid $2,053, 750 in wages; consumes $13,703,000 worth of raw and manufactured material yearly, and in the same time yields a product worth $19,270,000. Each year there can be made about 610,000,000 pounds of the corn sugar, and 61,000 bushels of com used daily, each bushel giving 32 pounds of glucose. The glucose fugar can be made with profit, it is said, at two cents a pound. This is a very serious matter in deed, because the production of corn in the States is practically unlimited. Beet sugar, fostered by Government bounties and high tariffs in Europe, has closed cane sugar out of the con tinental market to all intents and purposes; and the surplus production from beets is finding its way to the States and England. When we add to this the competition of corn sugar, or glucose, and reflect upon its possi bilities it will be very evident that the future of our sugar industry de pends upon cheap production and heavy crops. The first includes wages ai:d the very latest improved machinery; the second, the most in telligent system of cultivation. With the most perfect methods of produc tion and the most careful superin tendence, it would hardly be possible to place Hawaiian sugar in the mar ket to compete with glucose at the extremely low price quoted above. The Planters' Monthly of October, t 1SS3, estimated the cost of production at " cents per pound exclusive e)f "carting to the beach, freight to Honolulu, and from there to Cali fornia, with two or three times of handling, commissions in Honolulu and in California, insurance, interest on investment, etc." These charges must always be borne; but we do not anticipate glucose competition on any such basis. The manufacturers will always sell at the highest price, and their opposition will simply amount to the displacement of so much cane sugar. FIFTY CENTS PER MONTH- From and after the 1st day of May the price of the Pacific Commercial. Advertiser will be FIFTY CENTS PER MONTH, For the daily issue, with prompt monthly collections. Our object in making this reduc tion of 50 per cent in the price of the Advertiser to monthly subscribers, is to bring it within the means of every one to procure a first-class daily newspaper. The prevailing dullness in business is recognized, and the P. C. Advertiser is pre pared to meet the times by the pub lication of a thoroughly-equipped and reliable newspaper at a price which will bring it within the range of all classes. In making this announcement, the P. C. Advertiser can refer with confidence to what has already been accomplished under the new man agement of the paper, as a guarantee that all pledges for the future will be honestly redeemed. It is not too much to say that the P. C. Adver tiser isaciedit to Hawaiian jour nalism, or that it represents in the fullest sense the progress and intelli gence of the country. It is not pub lished in the interest of a clique or party, but in the interest of all. It will endeavor to build up and consoli date, instead of pulling down and destroying. Having opinions, it will express them fearlessly; being without pre judice, every question will be treated upon its merits; and having a repu tation to maintain, it will be careful of the reputation of others. As a faithful chronicler of events the P. C. Advertiser may always be relied upon. It will neither sup press facts nor distort them. It is a believer in "eternal verities,'' and an irreconcilable enemy of sham and false pretense. Its columns may al ways be relied upon to present facts, just as they are, anel in this way it will endeavor to build up a healthy and robust public opinion which should be potential in the correction of abuses and an incentive to the faith ful performance of public duty. The P. C. Advertiser should go into every household, because it is a "clean sheet." It does not sell its columns for the dissemination of vicious advertising notices, neither does it publish anything which the most fastidious could object to. In this important particul ir, as well as in honest reporting and unprejudiced comments, the P. C Advertiser stands alone among Honolulu news papers. Furthermore, it is our settled pur pose that the daily or weekly publi cation of the Advertiser shall be found in the home of every English speaking family in the Kingdom. It is only a question of a very short time when this will be the case, through the admitted superiority of our paper over all rivals. We shall continue to furnish copi ous reports of the world's news upon the arrival of every steamer and vessel from the Pacific Coast bringing later dates. Our local reports, now so full and comprehensive, will be rendered, if possible, still more elaborate; while arrangements are nearly perfected for giving local character to our illustra tions, which are now confined to re productions from the best work of the American Comic Press, the exclusive right to publish which has been se5 cured for the P. C. Advertiser. With these inducements, which no rival publication in the Kingdom can offer, and with a newspaper con ducted upon the highest plane of pub lic morality, the circulation of the P. C. Advertiser should be largely increased consequent upon the reduc tion in price. As a medium for ad; vertising it will stand far beyond the range of competition, and all who may wish to address the public in this way must of necessity use its col umns for that purpose. Now is the time to subscribe for the daily P. C. Advertiser. Monthly subscription, 50 cents; single copy, 5 cents. The latest accusation. against the Minister of the Interior is that he lacks the courage to ask for an appro priation for brick bridges that will not wash away every freshet that comes. Where lias the fool-killer gone to ? 'The Two Orphans. The fiual performance of the San Fran cisco Dramatic Company took placw last evening at the Music Hal!. The fine play of " The Two Orphans " was presented in an agreeable manner, and the audience, which was a very good one, were well pleased with the performance. It is a matter of regret that this really good company of artists should have had so much to discourage them during their season in Honolulu. Tljey visited U3 at a time when business depression disinclined individuals from extending to them the support that they have merited. The in clement weather has thinned the houses somewhat, and the death of the late Queen Dowager has caused many to stay away from all places of amusement. In an interview-granted by the King to ilanagcr Rut ledge, His Majesty expressed his regret that circumstances had not per mitted him to witness the plaj-s presented during the season, and expressed the hope that the company might again visit the Islands. We wi.-di the ladies and gentlemen of the San Francisco Dramatic Company a pleasant return trip, and assure them that they carry with them the aloha of many. Ilitfli I'riceil Curios. The auction sale by Lyons & Levey yes terday, of articles of Hawaiian manufacture and use belonging to the estate of the late Mrs C. It. Bishop was attended by a large num ber of people, mauy of whom were Hawaii ans, and tlio articles offered for sale brought high prices. A niihau mat sold for $59; calabashes that can be purchased new for $1 50 brought So to $7 each; kapa spreads, $7, $3 and $10. Everything Hawaiian was eagerly bid for. The articles are all estate property, and under the provisions of the late Mrs. Bishop's will, the net proceeds about $1,800 will go in to the fund provided for the endowment of the Kamehameha schools. I'olice Court. BtlOtlE I'OLICE JUSTICE BICKEUToN. Tuuksday, May 14th. J. Smith and C. Patterson, charged with disorderly conduct, each forfeited $15 bail. Keaiku (w.) a confirmed opium user, was found guilty of having some of the drug in her possession, and was fined $50 and im prisoned, with hard labor, for one month. Ah Kin, Ah San and Kate, three Chinese denizens, were charged with having opium in their possession. They were remanded until the 15th instant. The plantation of Col. Z. 8. Spalding, at Kealia, Kauai, is making good returns, and the Colonel feels happy. In the six days of last week they turned out 180V clarifiers of juice, of 890 gallons per clarifier about 141,400 gallons for the week's work, and very stormy weather at that. The season's output of sugar will le between 1.S00 and 2,000 tons. This shows good management on all sides. 3u limb font's. AbsoU : Pure. Thispov.
