Hence discounts will be easier and
the situation made" better than ex
pected, except, of course, for the
fact that the banks refuse to lend
the Territory the half-million an
thorized by the Legislature to be
borrowed for casual deficit; the re
fusal being made on the ground
that the Territory, under the Or
ganic Act, has no right to borrow
to tide over a temporary deficit.
At the present time there arc

Of this amount about $40,000 worth

HI or I; Depression, Says Mr. I'ollllz,
Will liu Shortlived.
Honolulu, April 28. F.dward
1'ollitz, the well known San Fran
cisco capitalist, arrived in Honolulu
by the Alameda ami will remain in
the Islands three or four weeks
looking after his interests and in
vestigating conditions of the crop
011 the different plant itions. He
will visit Maui and possibly Hawaii
before ho returns to San Francisco.
Mr. Pollitz, when seen by ' a
Bulletin representative at the Young
Hotel this morning, spoke hopefully
of the prospects for sugar, basing
his optimistic views on good crop
conditions throughout the Islands
and upon the upward tendency of
the sugar market, which he believed
will be a permanent movement.
He said: "Investors in San
Francisco are a little cautious con
cerning Jsla;id securities. The
reason vjiy Hawaiian stocks are
somewhat of a drug on the market
is to be found in the reaction from
high hopes which have not been
realized There is plenty of money
on the Coast for investment but it
docs not take to Hawaiian sugar.
"I think, however, the outlook
is good for a return of Hawaiian
securities to popularity. The an
nual reports of the different planta
tions arc highly flattering and but
for the general depression which
has ruled in plantation stocks,
would be sufficient to cause market
activity in the market. The ex
cellent showing made in these re
ports, together with the advance in
the price of raw sugar, which I be
lieve will be permanent, will, in my
opinion, soon overcome the back
wardness of investors: These im
proved conditions will soon cause
the past to be forgotten and better
times for Hawaii will result.
"JL consider the advance in raw
sugar will be steady because the
consumption of sugar is constantly
on the increase and the supply is
on the decline. The latest reports
slate a decline in the, production of
sugar of 535,000 tons. This de
creasing supply with the increasing
demand is bound to have its effect
on investors sooner or later, al
though asNyet the public is unres
ponsive, because the full effect is
not felt. Everybody in San Fran
cisco is pleased with the showing
made by Hawaiian plantations,
especially with those plantations
well known on the Coast. This,
with the activity in the markp t for
raws, will in a short time restore
confidence as the people will come
to the conclusion that Hawaii has
not sold them a gold brick."
Mr. Pollitz said that the leaf hop
per reports had had a decidedly
bear effect on stock on the mainland
but that he considered the worst
past on this score. He referred to
the appearance of the hopper seven
or eight years ago and its quick
disappearance and does not an
ticipate that this pest will cut any
figure in the cane fields after this
