phones are to be cut out, says an offi

whether a friendly telephone company
will merely shrug, its shoulders and
take a chance of eventually being

phones really go, it may be hard to
get them back again, for the local
company is pressed for service, and
other prospective subscribers would
be glad to gobble up the numbers.

The entire new $1,500,000 territorial
bond issue will be sold to four con

ing the award of stock In New Yora
this morning, according to a cable re

noon. The two Hawaiian bidders were
successful. Bishop & Co. being tne
highest, offering a rate of 101 for a
$50,000 block of stock and the First
National Bank of Wailuku taking $10,
000 worth of the stock at a rate of
In all there were nine bidders, but
five were thrown out because they
were unaccompanied by checks. The
total amount bid was $3,510,000. The
total amount bid at or above par was
$3,060,000, and the prices bid at or
above par aggregated $3,069,914. Tie
bids accepted aggregate $1,500,000. for
which $1,508,831.34 was bid; or a pre
mium of $8,831.34.
Governor Frear says that while the
premium received on the 1912 issue
is not as great as the former issue,
which got $23,813.75 as premium, yet
the profit to the Territory will prob
ably prove greater on the present flo
tation, because the expense attendant
has not been nearly so large as that
undergone on the previous occasion.
