A day or two before the close of Congress, a bill which had been in troduced by Senator Sherman, was p&S3d, which guaranteed to Ha w&ii all the benefits secured to her by the reciprocity treaty. One of the stipulations is that all sugars commonly known as "Sandwich Island sugar," shall be admitted free of doty. Very soon after the treaty "went into force, the ques tion was raised whether all island sugars, no matter how light cr how high they polarized, could pass in free. This was decided by an order frora the Treasury Department at Washington, admitting all un washed sugars not exceeding No. 20 Dutch Standard. Senator Sher man's bill was intended to fiecure the concession of this and any other benefits given by the treaty, wherever a doubt might arise. In another coium is an article copied from .Yiiiett& Gray's Sugar Circu lar, cajling attention to this, and indicating 'that a considerable por tion of our white sugars might find a market if sent to the Atlantic ports. Doubtless arrangements can be mad) to secure this Eastern market for a portion of our crop, at better prices than can be ob U'nedin.San Francisco. . -1 . EXTRACT FROM THE HAWAIIAN BECIPitOCITY TBEATY. (From Willett & Gray's Sugar Ctrcukr.) Aimers-1.- For and in consider; of tiu rights and privileges granted oy His Majesty the King of the Hawaiian Islands in the next succeeding article of this convention, and as an equivalent therefor, the United States of America hereby agree to admit all the articles named in the following echadalehe same being the growth and manufacture or produce of the Hawaiian Islands, into all the porta of the United States free of duty. "Schedule: Arrow-root; castor-oil; bananas, nuts, vegetables, dried and un dried, preserved and unprer-erved ; hides and skins, undressed; rice; pula; seeds, plants,, shrubs or trees; muscovado, brown and all other unrefined eusrar, meaning hereby the grades of sugar heretofore commonly imported from the Hawaiian Islands and now known in the markets of San Francisco and Port land as 'Sandwich Island sugar;' pyrups of sug&r-caue, melada and mo lasses; tallow." It will be seen from the above extract from the treaty that Sand wich Island sugars are not limited to No. 16 D. S. in color, but are free of duty for any color of unre fined sugar. Our Government needs the Island, and will not be paticu- lar about color, The character of these sugars is JO. fn. W. (Tb.

S. in color oi tms sugar is sure to test almost as high as trranulated sugar. There will be a good demand for theso sugars from confectioners, bakers, canners and tobacconists, and if above No. 16 D. S. for domestic uses outside of the sugar bowl. Some portion of the crop should be sent East for a market, but only selected high color and high test. The present crop of the IslancU is about 120,000 tons,which is more than the requirements of the Pacific Coast: but if we are right m our expectations, the crop can be in creased, and find a ready sale in the Eastern markets for direct con sumption. Selected dry sugars of No. 16 D. S. and upwards can be shipped bv sail direct from the Islands to New York. All lower grades can be sold for refining in San Fran cisco. There has been some disposition shown by the Hawaiian Govern ment to cancel the present treaty, but we think it will be found that a specially profitable trade is wait ing in the United States for their production of dry, high color, and 98 to 99 degs. testing augar, which cannot be found for this sugar in any other country. No other coun try except Java produces similar sugars, and the importation of Java sugars is limited to No. 16 D. S. We see no reason why the Sand wich Islands may not make a No. 20 D. S. unrefined sugar for the United States trade under the pres ent treaty, which would come into direct competition with granulated sugar for many uses. It will not be well for the Islands to abrogate the treaty until they have tested this new business thor oughly. The fact that they are not limited to No. 16D. S. in color, while other countries are, may prove of more benefit to them than the former state of things, as it opens to them a trade for an un limited production, whereas here tofore their production has been kept down nearly to the limited requirements of. the Pacific Coaat. Tms may prove one of the surprises of the new tariff. CORRESPONDENCE. Wdo not ho!d onraalvM rtpeasibl for tbe statements latAt, jr opinion txpiMMd by our oomapondentfl. Public Condemnation. Mr. Editor: It :s a.pity that tbe manager of the street car line has not the vim to have the brakes of the cars and the wheels repaired so that the public can ride in comfort and safety. On the 7 o'clock car of last evening the manager was on the car and saw witb what difficulty the driver worked under even to fctop, when a passenger wished to get on, with in half a block, let alone the pos bilities of an accident when on down grades like Beretaoia street. If a person should ask the driver, no doubt ha would say that his breast was sore from bracing it against the break. Traveler. April 29th. Supreme CourtAt Chambers. BEFORE JTOD, O. J. Tuesday.

Tbe mother of the minor made a sworn statement of tbe boy's property, consisting of one piece of land at Aawaiolima and other small lots, rents, etc. The said Keknkn nominated his mother to be guardian; she was appointed by the Court to be guardian under $200 bond.

Sarah Bernhardt in San Fran cisco. The result of the first day's sale of tickets to the Bernhardt opera in 3a- Francisco was a total of $20,000. The price of tickets was $3 for dress circle, reserved; $2 for family circle, reserved ; $1 for gallery. The first performance was to be on the 24th of April. "Mine. Bernhardt's phenomenal success in the East," said Mr. Wil loughby, her agent, in answer to a number of questions, 44 is chiefly due to the remarkable genius of the great Frenchwoman, and further to the sensational repertoire in which she has appeared. 'La Tosca,' Jeanne d'Arc' and Cleopatra illustrate a wide range of dramatic possibilities and constitnte the most interesting results of that famous association of Bernhardt and Sardou. " The business of Mine. Bernhardt this year has been enormous and the furor she has created seems to be a legitimate outcome and compliment to the business tact and energy of Messrs. Abbey and Grau, who de cided upon the repertoire and gave the plajs the most sumptuous set tings. Mme. Bernhardt opens her season here April 24th and the en FnJ 6nd historic one." S. F. Call. gagement promises to be a success LATEST FROM THE VOL CANO. The Fires of Pele Steadily Re turn in g The last breakdown in the floor of the crater, which engulfed Halemau mau, Dana Lake., New Lake, and the 11 or 15 active blowholes surround ing the bluffs over Halemaumau, in cluding the bluffs themselves, covers an area of 3,000 feet long by 200 feet wide. The sides of the break down are nearly or quite perpen dicular on all sides, with a debris slope starting part way down the side of the cliffs, and sloping to a central point, which point i3 abont 500 feet below the level of the sur rounding floor of the crater. The breakdown is slightly larger than the one of 1886. It also differs from the one of 188b' in the following respects: In 1886 the fire appeared to have entirely gone out, tii-ere seemed to be no smoke and but little steam left, and for three months the crater was absolutely dead and cold, with the exception of the still warm lava which had run out prior to tb6 breakdown. The lava then came back slowly, and it was considerably over a year before the whole was tilled up again. The breakdown of 1891 left hot lava still to be seeo in the cracks aronud the edge of the breakdown, and dense clouds of smoke and intense heat arising at several points from the bank. After a lapse of only three weeks the molten lava again appeared in the pit, and it is now filliug up rapidly. The news brought by the W. G. Hall was that up to tbe 26th inst. tbe bottom of the pit bad filled up about 100 feet, and a lake of liquid lava formed some 250 to 300 feet in dia meter. This is the result of only ten days' action. The bottom of the pit was steadily rising and the size of the lake increasing, and activity snowing itself at new points every day. Th illumination was very bright,being visible at night at Pnna luu, thirty miles away. The weather is described by tour ists returning by the Hall as simply magnificent. A clear sky and no rair. Tourists desiring to see the Vol cano will seldom have a finer oppor tunity than the present for viewing its wonders, as they will not only have an opportunity to seethe liquid lava, but the results of the stupend ous breakdown, which will, if the present great action keeps up, be entirely filled up and obliterated within a few months. Those who visited the Volcano prior to the collapse, can probably recti 1 the immense lava piles to the left of Dana Lake, aDd indeed all around the eite of old Halemaumau, several hundred feet in height. When the collapse took place in March last, all these immense ridges snnsided.leaving a noiiow depression 3,000 feet long and 2,500 feet wide, and 500 feet deep, making a subsi dence from tbe top of tbe old preci pices to the bottom of the new sunken crater of nearly if not quite a thousand feet. The inference is that the molten lava was suddenly drawn oil through some other (perhaps submarine) opening, allowing this immense pile of rocks to subside and fill the space before occupied by the lava. To those who need a pleasant Tonic for any kind of debility, we can recom mend Clements' as the best. For sale hv HOLLTSTER A Co 2Ccdj tocrttscmcnts. C. B.

THE Fact of our selling Aennotors every day or two is very good evidence that the pub lic is satisfied with them. An inferior article in any line may be placed on the market and will sell, quickly too. for time, but the people learn of its inferiority and taboo it. The Aerruotor is a new thing here but not in the United States; it is a tried invention there and has stood the onslaughts of the GREATEST Storms they have ever experienced in the Western (states. While ihey are built of seenrnvly light material, its strength is such that only a wind strong enough to wreck a houcte will wreck an Aermotor. Nor it it built so that the work it ha to perform is greater than its construction will admit of. orue people have said that the fct of the wbeel making three revolu tions before pumping water is a drawback. The fact is that a WINDMILL Which has too much work to do will give way somewhere and go to pieces, ihe Aermotor is purposely constructed on the three-revolution system so that the work is evenly distributed and one part will last as lung as another. The Aermotor cannot wear out, and if certainly win not rot. I ne tilting torer is a strong feature with the Aermotor. because it laciutates oi.ing. There is no climbing up the mast to oil tne niachii ery. A cnud can iraw toe wheel to the ground and place it in posi tion without as.si-,tance. We have not heard of any other mill having this, and we do not think anyone else ON These Islands has. One gentleman pur chased an Aermotor from us a few weeks ago and was s well pleased with it that he bought another last week, and will probably buy more He nas a g od supply of water and wants to distri bute over his land. The Aermotor fur nishes the iower and three inch pipes tbe channel. It is wonderful what work one of these little machines will do. It is diffi cult to tell people what 'hese Aermotors will do in an advertisement and it is bard to reaiiz- what they will do b looking at a model but from tho.e we have seen at work in this neighborhood we believe we could flood the EARTH With one of them if some m e else would supply the spring from which we oult get the wa'er. We do not propose to flood the earth with water but we intend to flood tbe HawxiUn Islands with Aermotors because we believe them to be a good thing and an article needed by every householder, every rai.ch and plantation owner. They are the best investment a man can make who has any pumping to do, because they work all the time and cost absolutely nothing once they are erected. If you ive at dis tnce a d want particulars write to us Correspondence solicited nd cheerfully answered. We are the only people here who sell them and we wid be glad to trive anv one particu.ars.

"In Canada there is a most strinjrent law in force, preventing any spirit trom being sold until it has arrived at the age of two years, ai d to ensure this the Government retains it in its posseeeion lor that length of time alter manufacture a precaution that is not taken by any oher gov ernment in the world.

The distiller, or any other pers- n, may bottle whisky in Canada awav from the Government control ; but to piovidw a much needed security to consumers the Government permits distiller, (and dis tillers only), to bottle under excise supervision ; the p rit in fact remaining in bond, and the process of bottling closely watched bv officers, until the tfficial stamp has been placed over tbe capsule.
