ot a larger number before, were
bought by their former tenants,
although other people secured
some, and it is evidence of the
advance made in circumstances
by the Portuguese immigrants
and their children that they were
able to hold their own even in

What is particularly note-
worthy about the sale is the
higher value put upon the lands
by the bidders than that given by
the official appraisers. In some 4j
cases the prices obtained were
several times higher than the
upset prices. The total of the
upaet prices was $9181 and the
realizations of the sale amounted
to more than $20,000. Such results
prove that real estate in Hono-
lulu is steadily trending upward, ;
a fact to which both home-seek-

take heed. Another striking

Motor omnibus companies in Lon-

the street-car systems in htavy de

Carl R. Loop, U. S. deputy consul gen

twenty-three weeks ended September
4, the passenger receipts on the tram-
way system operated by the London
county council showed a decline of
$233,592; while those of the seven
street-car systems of London, includ
ing that of the county council, have
showed a decline during six months
of $311,456. In contrast to these fig
ures the omnibus companies have
shown remarkable increases. The
London General Omnibus Co.'s esti
mated increase of receipts for the
eleven months ended September 30
was $2,501,381. while the National
Steam Car Co. in forty-four weeks
more than doubled its receipts, in-
