Following is the condition of the
rico market July 2Gth : Rice in good
shape at tbis writing. There have
been no further receipts of new
Hawaiian since last report but con
siderable is due which may weaken
prices when placed on the market.
At present SI. 75 per hundred pounds
firm, is the quotation. A decided
improvement in mixed fice is re
ported from Hongkong and this
market seems in full sympathy, the
rate now quoted being Sl.tfO per two
mats, with sales of upwards of G000
mats within tho past week, The
spot stock does not exceed 20,000
mats. For No. 1 of the three
grades, medium, good and choice,
a good demand exists at linn quota
tions. During June 2,5915,331
pounds were imported, 1,95-1,170
coming from China and 442,000
from Hawaiian Islands and the
balance from Japan and Italy.
" SUPREME COURT DECISION.
Mr. Justice Preston yesterday
filled Iub decision in the two actions
of trespass brought b3' W. II. Corn
well against Joseph Fernandez.
The first action was commenced
in the Circuit Court of the Second
Judicial Circuit on the 7th Novem
ber, 1888. The alleged cause of
action being for trespass by the de
fendant upon certain lands known as
"Waiakoa, Kamehameiki and Pulehu
iki in the district of Kula, Island of
Maui, and depasturing the same
with cattle,, etc.
The second action was commenc
ed in the Supreme Court on the 8th
of December, 1888, and was brought
for trespass since tho commence
ment of the first action.
By consent the two cases were
heard together by Mr. Justice Pres
ton without a jury, at the special
term in June last.
The Court concludes its decision
as follows: "lam of opinion that
the defendant's occupation of the
land was wrongful, especially afterre
cciving notice of the plaintilFs lease,
and that the plaintiff by his entry
upon the land in March showed his
intention to take possession, and
therefore is entitled to maintain this
"As to the damages I assess them
at the sum of two hundred dollars in
the first case and at the sum of one
hundred dollars in the second case.
Judgment may be entered for the
plaintiff for these amounts with
Paul Neumann for plaintiff, C.
W. Ashford for defendant.

anything to say against the Govern

time brandishing a revolver in the
Captain s face. Later on the fes
live luna, feeling still more thirsty
entered the Criterion saloon and
called for a drink. Tho bartender
seeing his condition, refused him,
whereupon ho drew his revolver and
brandishing it around said he could
get anything he wanted. He was
finally cjoctcd and locked up in the
Station House. A charge of drunk
enness has been entered against him
on the police register. This has
been done since the letter appearing

AH ARTIST'S WORK.
Mr. K. C Barnfleld has two pic

The chief of them is an oil portrait
of the late Princess LikeliUc. Tho
artist had to rely on photographs,
using a largo number of them, to
obtain an accurate idea of tho life,
which he has secured in a masterly
manner. There is retained nil the'
vivacity of expression characteristic
of the subject when in prime and
vigor, and tho features are thrown
out in line relief from the canvas.
The tone and coloring arc alike ex
quisite, wliile there is a softness in
tho lustre Imparled to tho liair which
enhances tho naturalness of the
whole picture. Tjiu feather hend
drosa and lace on the neck and bust
are done with a rare delicacy, richly
setting off the portrait without mini

portrayal. Tho other woik Is a

The San Francisco Commercial
News of July 20 contains the fol
lowing in its wockly market review :
In sympathy with the fluctuation'?
in thu markets at East and in Eu
rope, Miaar has during tho manth
advanced sharply only to adopt a
retrograde movement later. During
the week a decline of ic has been
recorded. The Juno import
amounted to 25,588,951 pounds of
raw making receipts for the first
half of the year 2 12,990. 205 pounds.
Tho Juno exports of l dined were
9,200,904 pounds r.nd 08,075,077
for the six months. Tlice figures
show an increase over tho like peri
ods iu 1888 and 1889.
A press despatch from New York
dated the 18th contains the follow
ing concerning the sugar trust:
There is scarcely any room to doubt
but that the sugar ti list is preparing
to make a vigorous battle to sustain
present prices, if not to force them
still farther up the scale. Previous
to the first advance in prices a year
ago the storage of largo quantities
of refined sugar was a thing un
heard of. The price of granulated
sugar at retail was then about 0
cents per pound. Now the same
article sells at ten cents. For more
than two months past the trust has
been rushing the storage of sugar
witli the warehouse trust, and to
day there is scarcely a dry, clean,
available warehouse on the Brooklyn
water front that has not some re
fined sugar stored in it. There is
very little doubt that the combine
is preparing to squeeze the maikct
by still further advancing the prices
of this necessary ol life, and it
would be useless to attempt to deny
that a ve.ry bitter feeling is arising
against the magnates of the sugar
trust. Sensible, steady men have
said that an attempt should be made
to induce the public to do without
sugar till the combination conies to
its senses. From all that can now
be learned at least 300,000 barrels
of sugar are now locked up, the
value of which at the present price
is something enormous, and it is
likely to be still more unless the
trust's scheme is loil-d by the
wholesale aud retail grocers and the
According to the New York Ship
ping List of July 1,'Hli, the weakness
displayed in Europe early in the
week has been followed by sudden
collapse in values that appears to
have completely demoralized the
markets for sugar, both hoc and
there, and for the past two days a
feeling of semi-panic lias prevailed,
which has not only brought business
to a complete stand, but rendered
quotations entirely nominal, there
being no tangible basis upon which
to base values. This condition of
affairs has been brought about by
the adjustment and liquidation of
the speculative operation of the Eu
ropean syndicate that has been in
progress. The combination of ca
pital has been for several months
the most important factor in the
markets since it had obtained con
trol of the bulk of the available sup
ply of beet on the Continent, but in
doing so had necessarily been forced
into extensive speculative deals.
Furthermore, these speculative oper
ations have been instrumental in in
flating values, so that at the highest
point the price of beet was about 3s
above cane values, whereas under
nominal conditions the reverse ought
to be the caso. It is the liquidation
of this speculative interest, and a
readjustment of value3 on a more
nominal basis that has Jed to the
collapse, and which it is said has
been forced by bankers refusing to
make further loans on the basis of
these artificial values. Accordingly
the syndicate had to cease opera
tions, aud ns soon as it became
known that the combination was no
longer a buyer, a liquidation was
precipitated in the natural course of
events. Beet has (hopped from 28s
Cd to 21s, but closed yesterdav a
little steadier at the latter price, w bile
cane has gone from 25s Cd for Java
to 23s, which was the last quotation
cabled yesterday, showing that the
decline in actual sugar has been
much less violent than the drop of
tlie value of beet. These events
have had a rather demoralizing ef
fect here, first, because the demand
for refined had fallen off, and sec
ond, on account of unusually heavy
direct importations by refiners. As
u consequence there was very littlo
disposition on the part of buyers to
increase their holdings, and this
combination of circumstances has
caused some holders to lose courage
and press their supplies for sale. As
a matter of fact, the world's -available
supply of raw sugar has under
gone no change so far as its statis
tical position is concerned, and some
difficulty is likely to be experienced
in providing for the actual rrquire
mciitu of consumption, but far the
tiinu confidence has been shaken,
and hence the whole situation is uiit

THE CHINESE MERCHANTS,
EmpUnliit denial of Ihrlr
city In tho JiiHiurocll
Mr. Lau Chong of the firm of
Wing Wo Tai fc Co. was interviewed
this morning by a.Hui.uvux reporter
with regard to the attitude of the
Chinese merchants in tho late insur
rection. Mr. Lau Chong said re
ports were floating around that somo
of the Chinese merchants knew all
about what was going to happeu.
This he positively denied. They
knew nothing whateer until early
Tuesday morning after the rebels
had got possession of the Palace
yard. A meeting of the merchants
was at once held at tho Chinese
Club House, and it was while they
were in session that the first shots
were fired. The society sent a com
mittee around Chinatown calling'
upon the residents to attend to their
business and keep perfectly quiet.
Notices to the same effect were
posted up, Messrs. Alee and Goo
Kim, the Chinese Commercial
Agents, consulted witli the Marshal
and acted according to his instruc
tions. Chinatown was patrolled by
special Chinese ollicers.
Mr. Lau Chong said that ho .was
ou patrol himself until three-o'clock
Wednesday morning. The report
that some Chinese merchants attend
ed the meetings of the rebels was
untrue. The Chinese prefer peace
at all times. If there were any
Chinese mixed up iu the insurrec
tion it would be some belonging to
the lhwer class.
