STILL ANOTHER NEW BLOCK
I. S. Sicbs fill Fat Up Modern
Block Ytry Soon.
Site it Corner of Fort and Beretanla Streets
Fine Frontage on Bolb Thoroughfares
Plans Not Yft Finished.
N. S. Sacbs hue decided to pot
up a modorn business blook at tb
corner of Fort and Berotania
streets opposite the Progress
b)ook. This is the business that
brought Mr. Saohs to Honolulu
In a talk with a Bulletin report
or this foronoju, Mr. Snobs said:
" I would rather not say much
about the mattor yet. I can any,
however, that I will pat up a
building that will bo at least
three stories high. Tho frontago
on Beretanla street will be 125
foot and on Fort street, 110 feet.
This will make a fine building
and I promise it will be modorn
in every way.
"I have not ai yet decid-d on
tho nature of the hotel I am to put
up. I have heard many speak in
favo.' of a commercial hotel and I
do not hesitate to say that the day
will very soon come when snob a
place will bo greatly neodoi.
"The other echo mo ib of course
that of putting up a business
block. I am now weighing tho
two propositions and will settle
tho matter in a few days.
"I have decided on one thing,
however, an'l that is to have the
main entrauco at the comer."
Mr. Rawei completed his ser
ies of lectures on New Zealand
and the Maoris last night before a
crowded home. The lecturer
dealt principally with tho "King
country," a government reberva
tion often thousand miles situat
ed on the North Island, where the
Maoris live in primitive nod umo
lested enjoyment. Tweuty-fivo
years ago it meant dotth to any
white man attempting to travel
through this section of tho coun
try bnt latterly visitors nre allow
od curtailed priveleges in this
Sorao lovely bits of scenery on
the Wanganui river, also the now
oxtinot pink and whito terraces
were thrown on the sorenn. Mr.
Rawei sang eomo very pithotio
ballads in native Maori and En
glish which elicited loud and
well merited applause. Tho loo
turer claims close kinship between
the Maoris and. Hawaiian the
language of eaoh being much
alike and in places identical.
.NO OPIUM THERE.
Aoting on certain information
Deputy Marshal Chillingworth,
Captain Harry Evans and Offi 'era
Kupiho and Vida went to Pearl
City yesterday and embarking in
a boat, went out to watoh the
Transport Grant go by on her
way to tho Philippines. It was
expect d that a lot of opium would
bo dropped but when the Grant
passed at a distaaco of about
a quarter of a mile away, there
wasn't a single peculiar notion to
be seen and the olfioars rowing
ashore, returned homo.
Olh Not Going,
The rumor was about tho streets
this forenoon that tho Gtb Artil

it was round that two or tbe omo

Ueiiry St. Goar, of tbo firm of
E. Pollitz & Co., the San Fran
oisco financiers, has retunod from
his visit to Maui and Hawaii,
When interviewed this morning
Mr. St. Goius aid:
"Whou I loft for Maui I hoped
to be diuappointod in tbo opinion
I hud formed from tho glowing
accounts of the progress nf the
Hawaiian Commercial. When
I bad oone over the p.oeerty
I was convinced that it is the most
wonderful enterprise on theso is
lands. Mr. Lowrie, tho manager,
who iaa very conservative man,
told mf- that, if in 1902, there was
not a yield of 50,000 tone of sugar,
he would ohange his namo and go
out of the sugar business.
Tne wnole plantation is in the
most perfect running order. An
improvement to be made is ohang'
inn the location of the mill whioh
will bs put up in the center of the
plantation and a new mill will
also be built.

ed Senator Baldwin and tho Kibni
plantation. I think Kihoi ij coins
to be all right."
In reply to the question as, to
whether his firm was wot king in
the direction of a doal in Kthei bo
said: "Not bf the present time.
At some future time when the
plantation is on a dividend paying
basis, the stock may be taken to
"Our firm, noting as agents for
European and Eastern mvostors
cannot go into the'plantations that
are not dividend earning.
"From Maui we wont to Olaa.
Olaa has in charge two of the best
men that could have baen obtain
ed. Mr. McStookor is t most
magnifioent organizer and buai
ness man and MoCrea has no sup
orior in the BUgar business.
"We walked all over tho Olaa
plantation and, to buow the
moisture of tho soil, a cane was
thrust into tho ground. At eight
feet it was very moist.
"I am not a praotioal sugar
man bnt I can judge by compari
son and when I arrived at Houo-
kaa and Paauhau, I was very
muoh strnok with the fino looking
cane at both places.
"Ookala is looking well too and
is bound to be good with conser
When asked concerning the
Honokaa deal Mr. St. Goar said:
"The stock has been plaood on
the San Franoisco market at $35
and the wholo of the 15,003 shares
we took up has been disposed of,
5000 shares being sent to Europe.
We now oontrol in the neighbor
hood of 35,000 shares of Hono
kaa." Mr. St. Goar, who has been
brought up in the banking busi
ness, says there is agio it future
for the islands with plenty of
money. Ho i-t tho financial end
of the firm of E. Pollitz & Co. and
bis long business oareer in Eu
lope has gained him numerous
frionds among tho monied class
in the old country.
Sinoe the suooessful handling
of the Hawaiian Commercial deal,
his firm has been the means cf
bringing over $10,000.1 00 foreign
capital into theso islands, Tho
opportunities for investment here
aro now being taken advantage of
bv the capitalists in Europe and
the East for whom Mr St.Goar and
E. Pollitz aot as agents and they
are flooded with inquires regard

is regarded as tho chief promoter,
bis reception has ben largoly
attended and integent disoussion
of tbo questions involved has

many things that were in doubt
made clear. The announcement

President had made a ruling
with reference to public lands aud
that suoh ruling might effect th-
