THOUGHTS ON SUGAR
CHINESE WARES ARE USED,
But Apt to be Unclean. Public Inter
est Should be Aroused, Therefore
on the Subject of Beet
It la the duty of the press so fur as It
la possible to educate the public in re
gard lo questions of common Interest,
ullhongh they may be very common
place. When It cornea down to a mat
ter of household economy, every one i
familiar with the fact that little I lungs
are the occasion of the greatest losses,
and but few know the proper value of
the goods they buy, in many cases
reckh'ss Ibrough the help at the hack
door. 1 .
The principal anurous of eujjar sup
ply are refineries ailunled in lliediffer
ent parts of the U. S.; but a very large
portion of the stuck that is manufac
tured by these refineries is imported
from Germany, .Sandwich islands and
West Indies. Another point of impor
tance for refined S"gurs ib China, but
the sugar from that country are only
used in any quantity on the Pacific
ooust. Not leaa than' $1,500,000 was
seut to China for sugar consumed on
the Pacific coast during the year 1894,
und tbebussineeB threatens to increase.
Now there are two very Important
factors to the development of this
Weslein country, 'i he first is to pro
duce those articles that arc. lu demand,
and wbicb can take the place of im
ported products for which our money
has to he sent away. The second is to
enoourage the population in our im
mediate section to consume those arti
cles that are produced as far as possible
uu the coast There are two beet sugar
factories Ju California doiug a large
business. The Western Hugur Kcfin-'
log Company expended in operating
expenses iu 181)4, $l,(loO,000, of which
$500,000 was for labor. While tlieie is
room for other factories, there is plenty
of Sugar produced here to supply the
demand; and the importing of China
sugars has been carried on simply be
cause there is a tendency on the part
of our own people, consumers and
merchants, to buy the cheapest article
article that is offered, irrespective of
quality. We do not think the con
sumer is altogether to blame fcr this.
The retail grocer takes that sugar
which will afford him Ihe greatest pro
fit. Uuless the consumers are watch
ful, they cannot be sure that they are
not eating sugars that are nmnufiic
tured by the cheap coolie laborer of
the Orient, where hand laber, though
nasty, la so cheap that tlfere is no in
ducement tu use machinery, Custom
house figures absolutely show ttiat
there were imported into the Portland
and Port Towneend (Orcgou and Wash
ington) districts In 1894, 11,000,000
pounds of refined sugars from Hong
Kong, and all of this sugar was nan
died iu a surreptitious way by our re
tall grocers (for our wholesalers will
not buy It, the retailer getting his sup
plies direct from tha importer's bro
kers), and sold as American suguars.
Ask any grocer in Oregon if he han
dles China sugars, and he will answer
"No." What has become of the 11,
000,000 pounds imported? It probably
goes without sayiug that the Eastern,
or Oriental countries, are hotbeds for
development of all kinds of horrible,
loathsome human diseases: cholera,
smallpox, leprosy etc. Iu oue Instance,
in 1892, the steamer Palmas, which
brought 2000 to 8000 bags of China
sugar to Victoria, had smallpox on
board, aud there were later cases of the
same disease among the stevedores
who helped to discharge the vessel. Iu
1894, lite great sugar refineries of
Hong Kong were compelled to cease
operations for lack of labor due to the
plague, aud now we are told that the
black plague has broken out this
spring. Iu view of the introduction of
quantities of Cbiueso sugar, it may be
as well that the public be informed on
the very highest possible authority, of
the dauger that tuny be attended upon
their use. Prof. Cameron, public an
alyst, Dubliu, a gentleman A'bo has
made it hie special business toexamlne
all kinds of foreigu sugars, refined aud
other, says that ccrtuiu kinds of them
should never be used. He states that
they contain great numbers of disgust
ing insects, which produce disgusting
lVobubly enough luta been said hsre
to awaken some Interest in this suhject
and it is hop: ii readers of this article
will stipulate when they order sugar
that It is pioduced on I he Paciflo coast,
and show that they wi nt sugars made
by home .refineries, which employ
while labor only. Statistics show that
this country has sent abroad In a single
year $110,000,000 for sugar alone. Of
tills Immense consumption, 1,700,685
tons was foreign sugars, and yet it lies
been asserted by one of the most prom
inent men connected with tills busi
ness that California alone, if the inter
ests were properly developed, would
produce enough raw beet sugar to sup
ply the demand of the entire U. 8.
What a boon It would lie tn Oregon if
we could locate in the central portion
of our territory a refinery for making
beet sugar. While It Is not possible for
consumers in general to contribute to
an industry of this kind, it is possible
for them to make it Interesting to cap
itallsts by proving themselves enthus
iastic on the subject of patronizing
home industry. This is an opportun
ity in everybody's way, and a little
thouglitiulness if made use of will re
sult in an utiboudid benefit to our

A Jealous Man's Crime.
ST. FRANCIS, Kau., June 15.-A ;
horrible tragedy was enacted about
nine miles northeast of St. Francis this
morning. Frank Williams, a farmer, "

with a In. tenet, afler which ho blew
his own brains out with a revolver. ;

having Williams arrested. On the
way they stopped at the house of G. O.
