ANXIOUS TO MAKE SILK.
HONOLULU, July 25 I haven't
any land close to a city to' sell to
a silk manufacturer," said Land
Commissioner Pratt yesterday,
"but I would like to hear from some
private owners who may have."
The remark of the Land Commis
sioner was drawn out by the follow
ing letter, It bears the letter head
of the Spherpolar Engineering
Company, 72 Trinity Police, Now
York, and is dated at New York,
July 5th, 1005:
"J. W. Pratt, Esq. Dear Sir!
Your favor of Juno 10th just to
hand, and in reply to the same I
would say that we propose to es
tablish a largo plant for the manu
facture of silk, requiting three
acres of ground, and if convenient,
quarters for employees. The
amount of land required for build
ings to cover 500 looms, and atten
dant machinery, stables, etc., would
be at least threo acres, but we
might purchaso more if it could be
obtained at a fair price. In fact,
the price of the land will have
much to do with our establishment
of the enterprise.
"Wo would want to be near a
shipping point, but if it is an ob
ject to ship by rail' or boat, or both,
would consider such a proposition.
Of course, freightage is an object in
a large manufacturing businesses
wo would have much coal and lum
ber to move.
"Does the government allow set
tlement of lands as a bounty to
veterans of the Civil' War? What
is the price of' government land?
Would like to know the prices of
government and of privato lands,
with maps and full details, as you
"Outside of business considera
tions, my health and pleasure re
quiro a better climate and condi
tions than I can got 'here. I am
not an invaild, wi.s never sick a
clay in my life, but I am sixty
years old and dislike cold weather
as does also my son, who proposes
to live in Hawaii und do business
"I can have a regular little
colony of our own out thero, if I
can make tho right figures. . . . I
thought a representative of the
.United States government would
bo as likely as any one to furnish
facts, preliminary to our visiting
tho place or having our representa
tive do so. . . . Estimates for everything-
but land have been made,
and wo have waited patiently for
your reply, for which wo thank
you, and which wo fully appreciate.
Wo would want to be as near tho
city as, possible, consistently with
tho prices of proporty.
(Signed) "J. L. FOLLETT."
Now," said Mr. Pratt, "I am
willing to do all that 1 can to
furnish information, but I havo
not any government land, as 1
said bofoio, that would bo availablo
for this purposs. And I would
lik'o to hoar from private land
owners, as to terms and prices.
There must be land near Honolulu
that would be suitable fo the en
terprise in question."
SAN DIEGO, July 24. The
latest figures of the casualties
resulting from tho boiler explosion
ofi the gunboat Bennington give
the dead as 59, the wounded as 50,
and the missing as sixteen.
Funeral services were held to
day over some of the dead, and
Wore most impressive, although
simple. Forty-seven of tho bodies
of victims of the disaster were laid
in two rows, in a deep trench.
Tho cemetery in which the
bodies of tho Bennington's dead
were laid to rest yesterday lies oft
the crest of Point Loma, four hun
dred feet above tho harbor mouth.
It commands a view of the city
and. bay of San Diego, Coronado
Beach, and tho broad Pacific,
while as a background on the
north, east and southeast riso the
blue mountains of California and
Mexico. The view from this spot
was declared by Charles Dudley
Warner to bo ono of ho seven
finest in the world. In the ceme
tery many heroes are buried
among tho earliest interments
being those, of tho bodies of the
victims of the battles, of the M ex
can War fought in San Diego
Bennington's complement.. ..201.
Total casualties 115.
Total survivors 8G.
ONE PER ON WARRANTS.
HONOLULU, July 23. "After
the bankers had held a meeting
this morning, they notified me that
they would reduce tho discount on
Territory warrants from two to one
percent," said Territorial Treasurer
. It is understood that all the
banks in town were represented at
the meeting held yesterday aftor
iioon. Treasurer Campbell had
had a conference with representa
tives of tho bankors on Saturday,
and had told them a few tilings
with reforonco to Territorial fin
ances. It was in consequence of
this that tho mooting of tho bank
ers was called, and tho reduction
Tho reduction moans a great deal
to men who are working for the
govornniont on salary. Heretofore,
when tho Treasury has been short
of cash, it has boon necessary for
salaried men, who aro not as a rule
ovor-providont, to discount their
warrants, and for this discount tho
banks havo charged two per cont.
Whon it is romoniborcd that nearly
ono million dollars aro paid out b
tho Treasury every year in salaries
of one kind or another, it will be
seen that this has been quilo a
handsome plum. And there were
other warrants than salary to be
More than that, 'tho 'profit has
not always gone to tho banks, nor
has the discount always been oven
us little as two per cent. A num
ber of salary warrants, paticularly
in tho cases of smaller salaried men,
have gone into the hands of the
usurers and these have not been
content with two per cent. Tho
man who has got into their clutch
es has been lucky to get off wytli a
discount of ten per cent.

IJUTTER FROM COCOANUT OIL.
According to a report submitted
to our State Department by Cdn-
sul General Skinner, of Marseilles
Franco, an extensive trade in
butter substitutes is growing up in
Europe, tho chief of these com
pounds being copra, or cocoanut
butter, with tlnf center of manu
facture at Marseilles. A single
firm in that city turned out 7200
tons of this edible grease in one
year. It is produced by tho mani
pulation of copra oil, but tho se
cret of its manufacture is jealously
guarded and remains in the hands
of a few. The compound is sold
under tho names of "vegetalino)"
and "cocoaline,'' and is declared
to bo wholesomo as well as cheap,
and is generally sold on its morits
It is a boon to tjio poor, and there
lias been no attempt to put legal
restrictions on its sale Leslie's.
