?The Stock Exchange adjourned
at noon Saturday for one week, so
that there will be no board business
for the' present, although some live
ly street trading is assured. Inas
much as. many small holders of
stocks have obligations to meet at
the end of the year, it need not be
surprising that an unusually large
number of shares will appear upon
the market at reduced figures. .

:' THE 8UQAR MARKET.
The sugar market is again inclin

season of, low prices appears at last

He Wishes to See Hoaest Conservatives
Institate a Radical Program.
Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, as
the guest of tho New Haven chains
bcr of commerce it its annual
banquet, made hi .-it public lid
dress sirfco tho recent elections. He
was cordially greeted by A gathering
00U men representative of the
business and commercial interests
and the professions of the state.
It seems that nothing could be
a better augury of the future of this
country," he said, "than that a
republican president should appoint
a former confederate of opposite po-
itical faith chief justice" of the
United States, and receive the unani-
;nous applauso of his countrymen.
Bodies like this chambur of
commerce," said the colonel, "have

me as a kind of modified anarchist.
I am a radical, but I am a radical
who most earnestly desires to see a
adjcal program carried out by con
servatives. I wish to see great in
dustrial reforms carried out, not by
the men who will profit by them,
but. by men who lose by them; by
just such men as you are around

in the progress which shall .be

Equal opportunity, he said, re
presented the idea on which the
republic was founded.
'Your grocer must make a profit
or he won't continue to sell grocer
ies," he explained, "but if you pay
his bills without examining them
you don't show that you nave a
soft heart. You show that you
have a soft head.''
The government, he said, should
deal with corporations on the same
basis as a man deals with his grocer;
in giving and exacting justice.
Tlw colonel said there had been a
good deal of loose talk" about
proposed changes in forms of gov
ernment. The effort to get more
complete control over the agencies
of interstate commerce for the fed
eral government represents, he said,
not an irinovation .which, was not
contemplated by the constitution,
but a realization of the purposes, of

lower ,quotations are forthcoming in
the immediate future. February
and March futures aro ranging very

of the big fellows" the market
will reach its lowest then.
. CIRCUS FOR MAUI.
The Great American Show, quite
an elaborate circus proposition
which has been performing for
several weeks in a big tent in Aala
park, will leave today for Hilo for
a season of entertainments. On the
return trip tho company expects to
show at Wailuku, should health
conditions on the island of Maui
permit. It. is a real clevor combina
tion, and will delight Maui folk im
mensely should it appear there.

Why Is A Town Clock..
Most clocks serve a double pur
poxe. They are at the same time of
namental and useful. When they
cease to be useful, however, it tie
tracts greatly from their ornate
beauty; The clock which adorns
the native church is ornamental,
but as a practical utility it is a de
cided failure. It does not always
tell the truth, and has the reputa
tion of taking numerous vacations
We need a clock which is a marker
of time every day in the year. One
