Evor sinbo tho burning of thu
old issues of Hawaiian stamps on
tho morning of January 28 laBt,
'underauthority of u joint resolu
tion of tho Legislature, local spoo
ulntors hnvo boon particularly an
xious to find oat exactly how
many stamps wore destroyed and
thoir particular denomination. In
tho issuo of tho Bulletin of tho
dnto mentioned a tabulated stato
mont of tho number and valuo of
tho stamps on hand and authoriz
ed to bo destroyed by tho Legisla
ture, if not sold prior to January
1, 1897, was printed. It will bo
noticed that in tho report givon
below, (ho total value of tho
stamps destroyed is not givon. The
Bulletin has mada repeated
efforts to obtain the oxuet valuo
ami denomination of the stamps
sold between the date of the pas
sage of the resolution ,by tho Leg
islaturo und January 1, 1897, but
for some reason best known to tho
authorities the figures wero hot
obtainable. However, to thoso who
are interested enough to do a little
figuring they can bo easily got at
by computing tho vulues of the
stamps mentioned in tho follow
ing report nnd subtracting thom
from tho figures givon in the
table printed on January 28. Tho
difforonco will show what stamps
wero sold at tho postoifico, and as
they mostly went to speculators,
will give a protty'genoral id6a of
tho number of Htnmps of each de
nomination now owned in this
city and hold for speculative pur
poses. Following is tho roport made to
itoNOLULU, February 1, 1897.

is timo that our citizens camo to a

for Auuoxntion appear at prosont
vague and indistinct, and our

who still fondly cling to the hope
of a return to tho old ordor of
