8 P. M.
Attorney S. E. Hannestad, form
erly of Lihue, is now settled in
Harrisburg, Penn., his address
being 809 N.RSixth st., that city.
Although in a Rood position in a
business sence, he says, however,
that Harrisburg is a very qmet
city, indicating that his inclination
was toward a livelier center. Writ
ing to a Lihue friend under date
of May 21 Mr. Hannestad said:
"While in Washington I saw
Judge Dickev, on whose motion I
was adipitted to the bar of the
United States Supreme court; also
Mr. Withington and Mr. R. B.
Anderson, of Honolulu. Unfor
tunately, however, the argument
of the two Hawaiian cases there,
which I had hoped to hear, was
not reached during my stay in
"I am now definitely located
here in Harrisburg and will com
mence my duties in the Legislative
Reference Bureau on the first oW
next month. I am somewhat dis
appointed that I shall not be locat
ed in Philadelphia as I had hoped,
as Harrisburg is almost quite as
slow as Lihue, and I have not
nearly as many friends here."
The Sugar Market
Under date of May 27 Willet &
Gray, the sugar authorities, had
the following to say: "The signi
ficance of the steady market for
the week without having the cus
tomary reactions of previous weeks
to below 4.77c, is that the time
appears to have come for the ac
tual improvement in prices, which
many persons have tried persis
tently to bring about before the
time was ripe for it, and hence
were repeatedly disappointed.
We have in our cable from
Java, received yesterday, a pos
sible cause for a higher range of
values, provided of course that
there is no improvement in Java
weather conditions. The cable
reads as follows: "Unseasonable
weather so far preventing expect
ed arrivals shipping ports."
THE DEMOCRATS -
According to the Daily Journal
of Commerce the twenty-nine con
gressmen who left Honolulu on
the Wilhelmina all said they had a
good time here but none admitted
any change of opinion due to their
excursion to Hawaii. The Journal
"Uncle Joe" Cannon, leader of
the party, speaking for the Repub
lican member?, declares that the
war is the only saving factor in
the sugar industry, and that it will
be helpless as soon as this factor is
removed and sugar is placed on
the free list.
The Unierrified Unconvinced
"The Democratic members ad
mit that they were royally enter
tained by the sugar manufacturers
and growers but were not shown
anything to prove the necessity of
an import tax to protect the indus
try, which is the same opinion
they held on the outgoing voyage.
They will not recommend a con
tinuance of the tariff, which under
the action of congress last fall,
will be 'removed May 1, 1916.
"The congressmen returning to
day agreed that Honolulu harbor
should be well fortified, and most
of the party were in favor of the pro
posed $14,000,000 appropriation
for fortifications for the Island.
"The lawmakers were accorded
a royal reception in the Islands
and expressed themselves as com
pletely satisfied. with the trip."
Alexander Morrison, manager
of Honkaa Sugar Company and
Pacific Sugar Mill, large Hawaii
Plantation properties, has resign
ed. The report of his resignation
was confirmed today at the office
of the agents, F. A. Schaefet &
Company. It was also stated that jt

signation will take effect, but
probably within a short time, and
that no choice has been made of a
successor. No reason is given for

a half years. He was formerly
with Makaweli and McBryde
plantations, Kauai . II o n o 1 u 1 u
