8UUAK MARKET KEI'OUT.
Wlllrt & dray Predict Else In the
Honolulu, May 7. Willctt &
Grays sugar circular for April 54
says of the raw sugar market:
The course of values over the
week under review has been down
ward. Arrivals to the refineries
have been large, with further heavy
supplies afloat and awaiting ship
ments from Cuba. Hnyers were,
thereiorc not interested in nearby
sugars and offerings were disposed
of only at the expense of a decline
in prices, which amounted to .06c
for the week, The Inst sale report
ed was on the basis of i c. c. and
f. for Cuba centrifugals, afloat,
being equal to 3,6rc, duty paid, for
96 test. Further small lots, about
due, are for sale on this basis, while
the best bid is basis of 2 3-16C. c.
and f. The reaction must now run
its course, and after the market be
comes settled, an active demand
will doubtless soon set in again,
provided the country absorbs the
refiners product more rapidly than
at present. Holders, however,
expect a turn for the better before
long, being encouraged by the
steadness of the London market for
beet sugars at prices above the par
ity of our market, and by the fall
ing off in the Cuban receipts, which
were only 30,000 tons this week.
Java Centrifugals can be bought at
9s. 3d.c. and f. for July-August
shipment (September-October ar
rival.) No business in these sugars
has lately been reported, and re
finers have shown but little interest
in them, thus far this season. We
print a special cable report received
by 116 today, front London, giving
latest unofficial information on the
beet sowings in the principal Euro
pean countries, which indicates a
posiible reduction of 503,7000 tons
in the next sugar crop. Although
this may be an extreme view, it
shows that the tendency is to plant
a smaller area than has been
The highest mark has been
reached in the making of the Cd
ban crop, the record being 171
centrals and 53,925 tons receipts for
one week at the six principal ports.
The turn has now come, two
centrals having ceased grinding,
leaving 169 at work. The produc
tion to march 31st was 657,586 tons
sugar and if the output for the
balance of the season is equal to
the amount produced during the
same time last year, say 488,356
tons the total crop will be 1,145,942'
tons against our estimate of 1,130,
000, which we published last
There are now about the same
number of centrals grinding as at
this time last year, but the factories
have been pushed harder this year
in order to take advantage of the
better prices, thus indicating a
probable earlier closing in some
cases and, besides, it is not safe to
count on harvesting to continue as
long as last season, which was late
in coming to an end. Much de
pends upon the time when the
heavy rains will set in and put a
stop to grinding. Judging by
present indications, we may be
obliged to reduce our estimate a
little later on, rather than increase

IIKXKY M. STANLEY.
Noted African Explorer Ih Drnd In
London, May 10. Henry Stan
ley, the African explorer, who had
been ill for some time, is dead.
Henry Morton Stanley, African
explorer and writer, was a waif in
childhood. Exact dates and even
his family name are unknown. He
took the name of a benefactor in
whose family he lived in New Or
leans. He had spent a year of ad
venturous life amoung the Indians
when the Civil War broke out. He
enlisted in the Southern Army, was
captured and then entered the
Union Navy where he served to the
end of the war, attaining the rank
of Ensign. He became a reporter
on the New York Herald, and in
that capacity reported the Cretan
revolution, traveling afterward ex
tensively in the Levant. He be
came distinguished as a news corres
pondent while following Gen. Na
pier's expedition against Abyssinia.
While reporting the revolution in
Spain against Queen Isabella, he
received, in October, 1869, the
famed laconic dispatch of the elder
James Gordon Bennett, "Find
Livingstone." He started from
Zanzibar in April, 1871, and found
Livingstone at Ujiji, on Nov. 10,
which a relief expedition equipped
by Ingland had been unable to do.
His subsequent explorations place
him the greatest of explorers. He
married Dorothy Tennant, a lady
of considerable fame as an artist,
and has since lived in Ingland, now
and then being recalled before the
public through his efforts to enter
Parliament or through books of his
experience as an explorer.
Hunks Not Worried.
San Francisco, April 30. B.
Frank Dillingham's "rest cure"
will be a matter at least of weeks,
and possibly of months. Such was
the statement made yesterday by
close friends of the Honolulu cap
italist, who had received word
from the attendants, who are the
only ones allowed to see him in the
sanitorium where he lies. And
during his term of resting for
health's.sake he must forget the
fact that he has about $3,000,000
worth of property and that his lia
bilities have just about reached
The fact that $2,000,000 of his
paper is divided among the banks
of this city, nearly every bank
holding a larger or small amoupt,
did not appear to worry the hold
ers very greatly yesterday. The
managers of the institutions had
expected to go into conference with
Mr. Dillingham at once, but they
seemed to accept the enforced post
ponement of a settlement cheerfully.
"I have been around the banks,
and I can say that no spirit of un
easiness is manifested by them,"
said a gentleman who is financially
interested with Dillingham. "From
what I have learned today I
believe that when representatives
of the different banks get together
and canvass the assets there will be
no difficulty about arranging an ex
tension of time of two or three
years. None of them stand to lose
anything; it's only a matter of ex
ercising a little patience."
The local feeling seems to be bol
stered up by the statement issued by
the Honolulu creditors, who made
the first investigation, which state
ment is to the effect that the assets
equal the liabilities nud that if let
alone the assets will have a steady
