of pneumonia, which have threat

illness, have almost entirely disap
peared. The physicians report to
night, however, that their patient
is suffering from complete prostra
tion. They are very much mysti

that he may linger for days. No

The Czar has issued an edict
'contemplating to allay much of the
disrest among the working classes
of the country and it is hoped will
act as preventive against the many
outbreaks against the civil authori

Russia and the United States over
Manchuria make it advisable that

sentenced to prison for life. An
appeal was taken and a new trial
sought on technical points. Many
believed Tacker guilty mid were
highly incensed at the law's delay.

Of the Hilo Railroad Co., there
have been issued and sold $850,000
of the six per cent'io'ao year first
mortgage gold bonds and a sinking
fund consisting of five per cent pf
the annual gross earnings of the
company has been established to
commence five years after the date
of the bonds, so that by the time
the bonds mature seventy-five per
cent of their face value will have
been set aside out of the earnings
of the company. A list of bond
holders is given, showing the a
mount of $283,000 held in San Fran
cisco and the rest by local investors.
The net earnings of the railroad
last year were $28,054.60 and for
this year they are estimated nt$3o,
000. The machine shops last year
cleared more than $16,000. Lately
the company acquired the property
of the Hilo Dock Co., to be paid
for out of the $150,000 of bonds re
maining in the treasury. The com
pany is paying a dividend of one
per cent a quarter and owes nothing
but its bonded debt. Only about
one fifth of the area tributary to the
road has as yet been developed.

credit balance with the agents at
the end of this year of more than
$200,000 is anticipated. Various
factors of promise for the prosperity
of the enterprise are mentioned, in
cluding the large and modern mill
and the almost absolutely certain
rainfall, and Treasurer Elmer E.
Paxton in conclusion says:
"Nearly all of the bonds sold
were taken by responsible parties
when the plantation was first started
before there had 'been one-fifth of
the capital expended that there is
at the present time and before it
was fully demonstrated that cane
would grow equally well at all ele
vations on the plantation. If the
bonds could be considered fair se
curity at the time their value is
certainly largely enhancedby reason
'of the expenditure and development
of the property of the company."
