American authorities appear to be
coming around to the same opinion.
Jt is shown,' for instance, that the
$ present beet crop in Europe is bo-
ing sold at cost and less than cost.
This, it is held, will result in a very
considerable reduction in 19L1 sow
ings and a substantial curtailment
of the QiitDUt. Some of the same
Ifeeling of discouragement is manifest

MAUI STOCKS DOWN.
Maui stocks have been severely
tiit by the depression in the past
week. Pioneer, for instance, which
stood a week ago today at $177.50
bid and 8182.50 asked' is now. $160
bid and $167 asked. A few months
ago this stock was hard to get at
$230- Yesterday a sale of 5 shares
I was made at $165, and the stock
can probably be bought for less to-
day. Taking the entire seven days
through and there have been 168
I shares of Pioneer sold, the majority
g at the highest figure, $180, and the
lowest figure being $165; the aver-
t age was, $178,897. Tho total value
of Pioneer sales was $30,165.
Hawaiian Commercial came in
forralmpst equal buffeting. A week
ago- $23 'was bid and $34 asked
T(oday the figures are $32,125 bid
and $32.50 asked. Yesterday the
cable imported that Hawaiian Com-
'"mercial 'was selling in 'San, Fran

After a Victorious Season Harvard Is
Virtually Beaten by Yale.
Yale's banners of blue have again
waived triumphant, for the jild Yale
bulldog spirit eame to the aid of n
weak team, and the eleven coached
by that master of stragegy, Walter
Camp, held Harvard scoreless on
the New Haven gridiron. The final
score was 0 to 0.
Forty thousand people, massed
in picturesque, array on the great,
sloping stands that overlook the
Yale field, Haw die big Harvard
eleven, confident of success, held by
it marvelous defensevThe Crimson's
swift, attack was met with a superb
stone wall, and the verdict of the
critics giive old Eli a virtu.il victory.
Harvard had its great opportunity
to' score in the last period, when
tho Crimson had'-possession of the
ball on Yale's fiffeen-yard line.
Instead of trying for a field goal, by
which route Harvard won not so
long ago'from the Blues, the Har
vard captain, Withington, after a
conference with his men, choose to
rush the ball, in an attempt to
pierce the stiff Yale line. The Har
vard eleven lost the ball on a fumdle
and the golden opportuntty waslost.
In tho last two minutes Yale ran
deep into Harvard's territory, and
finally stopped on the twenty-five-
yard line, attempted a field goal.
The ball went twenty feet wide,
and it was certain then that neither
side would score.
Yale's ability to hold the stronger
Harvard team was tho feature of the
igame. 'Play was largely in the cen
ter of the .gridiron. Both teams
were repeatedly penalized for hold
ing in the line. Neither, was able
to use open plitys to advantage
owing to the strong defense, and
the contest resolved itself largely
into old-style football.
TheVHarvard supporters are bit
terly disappointed. Odds of two to
one in favor of the Crimson were
freely offered before 'the game. It
is conceded that Walter Camp, aid
ing the head coach, Coy, has built
up a wonderful defeus've machine
in a few days.

New York Will Have by Far the Largest
Railway Terminal in the World.
At a cost of $180,000,000 the old
Grand Central the busiest travel
center in America in the hJart of
New York city, is being enlarged
and rebuilt on a tremendous scale
without impeding for a moment the
movement of the 700 trains that
curry 60,000 passengers in and out
of it every day. When this mVvel
of engineering skill is completed, IS
months from now, it will'be by far
the greatest railway passenger term?
inal in all the world. No other
railroad gateway in existence or
projected is half as large. These
millions of dollars are being spent
primarily for the safety, comfort
and convenience of travelers. The
new Grand Central will be the" east
ern terminus of the dozen noted lines
that, stretching north and east and
west for more than 13,000 miles,
form the New York Central system.
For more than fi;e years an army
of men has been at work night and
day with batteries of rock drills and
squadron of steam shovels widen
ing and deepening the acres of
yards in the old terminal. The
greater part of this work is now-
done. Nearly three fourths of the
wonderful two-storied system of
tracks, covering 70 acres below the
street level, are in operation. On the

to nearly two generation of travelers
is being demolished and now the
main building of the magnificent
terminal that is to occupy its site
has begun to shoot upward.
The new Grand Central will be
the center of the most extensive

will connect not only with the sub

The Kel Cause of Such a Big Slump
In the Market.
"Honolulu's stock market is just
now the goat in San Francisco's ef
fort to secure tho Panama Canal
Exposition," staled a prominent
business man of Honolulu recently.
"San Francisco must have the
exposition or there wjll lie the
greatest financial panic there that
that city has ever known. At this
time big and little business enter
prises are hanging on by their eye
brows, and only the most wealthy
concerns would bo able to weather
the strain of disappointment in this
world's fair project. , ,
All kinds of stock are. beinir
sacrificed over there, regardless, of ,
value, for the purpose of keeping
ends together until the exposition is
assured-; and if the expjsition fails,
heaven help San Francisco!
The recent election of a Demo
cratic House of Itepresentatives has
been a fearful dash of cold water
upon the hopes of San Francisco.
It is figured that the Democrats in
Congress will be partial to Now Or
leans, and that San Francisco's
chances of getting the exposition
will be correspondingly lessened, if
not knocked out altogether.
"Ever since the election, holders .
of Hawaiian sugar stocks in San
Francisco have been throwing them
into the market on the "get-what-
you-can" plan. Sacrifice sales over
there have simply forced prices
down here. Olllv Vesterdnv n htnnb.

ordered from San Francisco hv

though Hawaiian Commercial has.
since gone lower, the stock can be
had in San Francisco for less nionev
than here. A block of Honokaa
stock was sold under similar ' cir-'
cumstances as the instance cited,
and that stock has been forced down
by tho coast panic or near panics
IhestockB are all right and
Honolulu is all right; but the local
market is unable to stand the strain
of a flood of stock being Uirown on
the market at San Francisoo at
ridiculously low prices.
"I don't know what the end will
lie. If San Francisco gets the ex- 0
position 1 suppose confidence will,
in a measure, .be restored: but if
tho coast city fails I am inclined to '
think that there'will be some chean-
er stocks than ever to be had on .the
Beet Sugar For
The prime minister of New Zea
land. Sir Joseph Ward, speaking
recently on the subject, of the beet
sugar bill, pointed out that the
government intended to establish
the beet sugar industry firmly in
the dominion, to act as a check on
tho sugar monojMily. The purpose
of the bill is to encourage tho pro
duction of sugar from beetroot and
sorghuingrown in New Zealand, in
addition to which it is proposed to
establish state sugar works, if neces
sary, for tho construction of which
tho minister of finance will have
authority to raiso a sum of A'500,000
upon being authorized by governor-in-oouncil.
Tho bill is introduced
with the object of enabling a bonus
for tho production of sugar from
beetroot or sorghum to lie paid, and
