WILLIAMS & DIMOND'S CIRCULAR.
San Francisco, August 25th, 1885.
Dcak Sin, Our last circular was
dated August 1st per steamer Mariposa.
Sugar AVe have no change to re
port in the condition of our local mar
ket. Eastern and Foreign markets.
Mail advices received up Jo the present
time show that the condition of the
Xew York and London markets haye
remained in much the same position as
noted in our last report. AVe quote from
Messrs. AVillet Hamlin & Co.'s circular
of Aug. 0th as follows:
'PniCES Muscovados and low grades
have remained nearly steady dining the
week with a good demand and closing
llrm at basis of 30 for fair reifning.
Centrifugals have been in small de
mand, owing to small demand for
granulated and the few parcels pressed
for sale, mostly ex ship, show a decline
'-'f of !fjc but nrc no crlteilou of the rnar
',v,; ' kct, us nearly all holders of centrifugals
in store still maintain their prices at Oe
and upwards for 00 percent test and a
renewed demand for this grade would
make them quite as high again relatively
as muscovados. English holders have
been tho principal sellers of muscova
dos. Rellncd have been in steady de
mand, with the exception of Granu
lated, which declined to 0 5-10c, but
later recovered to u?jjc and closes llrm
with an inui casing demand. The low
price of refined Induced a small export
demand, nnd about 4,000 bbls. were
taken mostly for London. The tinner
market checks further purchases. The
statistical position continues to im
prove. Receipts are small for the
week: refiners received only 3,253 tons.
Stqck in all hands Is reduced 4,(llltons,
add is now 17,231 tons under last year.
Melting during July averaged 3,033
tons daily, which is less than in May
and June of this year, and July of last
year, and indicates larger meltings for
August than last year.
Bhet Citoi' Careful canvassing of
tho German Beet llelds, by experts,
confirm fully the estimates of short sow
ings and render a large shortage In the
crop a certainty, the full extent of which
depends upon the weather, nnd cannot
yet bo fairly estimated. Tho steady
reduction now going on in tho total
stocks of consuming countries, should
soon uraw more aucuuon 10 mo cuccr
upon prices of a short beet root crop."
Our latest, telegraphic advices from
New York state that holders arc very
firm and there is a good demand for
raws. Cuba centrifugals 00 percent
5o at 5 15-lOc.
Loudon, Aug. 15th. European mid
foreign markets dull Beets 88 percent
testis. Tho present crop of nil Eu
rope Is now estimated at 30 percent
short, and tho Java orop 10 percent
short of last year's.
No change In tho Manila basis which
is 5 t for 01 percent tcBt.
Rick 'The large Importation per
steamer Alameda caused a drop in the
price of this article. Sales have been
mado at prices varying from Oe 00 days,
down to 5.80 cash. Prices aro likely to
be lower still as the quantity on hand
is greatly in excess of tho demand.

The performances at Fryer's Cir
cus, Saturday night, were witnessed
by n densely crowded audience.
The seating accommodations were
exhausted long before tho demand
for tickets had ceased.
The acrobats, reinforced by the
arrival, on Saturday's steamer from
the Coast, of Mr. W. Karl, acted
their parts well, executing some very
difficult feats with marvellous pre
cision nnd agility. The clown was as
" phunny" as usual, and in addition
to the usual comicalities performed
several very clever exploits in the
musical line, on tin cans, glass bot
tles, and other instruments.
The trained horses, dogs and
goats performed some very rare feats
of intelligence. "Circus riding ex
posed" is, without question, one of
the most laughable farces imagin
able. His Majesty the King was
present, and expressed himself
highly pleased with the perform
ances. The company go, this even
ing, to AVailuku, and will probably
give another performance here on
The match game of baseball be
tween the Oceanics and Honolulus
on Saturday was one of importance
to the Honolulus, as it decided their
chance of winning the prize bat. The
sportive element was well represent
ed, particularly the gentle sex whose
enthusiastic exclamations at the
pitcher's attempts to knock down
the striker, and outbursts of ap
plause or admiration at a foul ball
or a wild throw, gave evidence of
the great interest they took in the
game. No doubt, if it were not for
the interference of the umpire, they
would have thought the game truly
lovely. The Oceanics took the lead
at the beginning and at every inning
increased their score and lessened
the chance of the Honolulus, until
there was none left. The Oceanics
played remarkably well, while the
Honolulus never before played so
badly. When the Honolulus went
to tho bat for their last inning the
score stood 20 to 5. They made a
manful struggle, but were forced to
give up tho ghost after making five
runs. That ended the game with 20
runs for the Oceanics to 10 for the
Honolulus. The Honolulus had
better hang up the gloves and mask
until they can all play as good as
A VALUABLE BOOK.
There has just been added to the
reference department of the Hono
lulu Library Association, a book
which for students and literary peo
ple in general and particularly for
those who aro working up special
subjects, is invaluable. We refer
to Poole's Index of Periodical Lite
rature. This work whoso editor is
the well-known librarian of the
Chicago Public Library and an ac
knowledged authority in bibliogra
phy, is nothing less than a general
index of the articles on all kinds of
subjects which have appeared in tho
leading periodicals of the United
States and Great Britain for a long
scries of years. The magnitude and
scope of the work will bo under
stood when it is remembered that
the contents of no less than two
hundred and thirty-two different
periodicals, some of them extending
back to the beginning of the present
century, aro here brought together
into ono general index. Consider
ing the amount of matter, tho work
is wonderfully compact, consisting
of one large volume of 1,492 closely
printed double column pages. Tho
number of distinct titles or subjects
hero indexed is about one hundred
and twenty thousand? the number
of different articles referred to on
these subjects wo cannot undertake
to estimate. So far as we are aware,
this is tho only copy of this work
hero, certainly the only ono belong
ing to any public institution. The
reading and studying portion of this
community aro unucr oungaiious 10

at their disposal n work so unique

Mr. Starkcy returned from Kauai
yesterday as jovial as ever. Ho
says the cane on Kauai is looking
fine, particularly at Kilauca. He also
bring news of the loss of a valuable
cow belonging to Mr. Bcrtlcman, of
Kauai. A Chinaman was milking
her, when she gave him a kick and
in return the pagan broke both her
hind legs, making it necessary to
kill her to end her misery. Mr.
Starkcy also speaks of the AVialua
ferry owned by natives, who charge
HO cents to carry a horse over the
stream, $G for a break and about
$ 10 for a dotiblo team. They arc
making heaps of money and having
a huge time with it. The Govern
ment ferry scow will be finished this
week and will be welcomed by many.
