BUSINESS MEN OF THE CITY"
ARE REQUESTED TO MAKE ANY
INVESTIGATION THEY PLEASE A3
TO THE ACCURACY OF THESE
FIGURES. THE BOOKS OF THE
BULLETIN ARE OPEN TO THEM.
When the Advertiser and Star will
publish the Btreet sales of their re
upecthe papers, thereby giving the
business men of this city a complete
KnowlcdRo of the total sales of theso
waning organs, then the Bulletin wilt
urgo upon nil newsdealers to give out
the sales of this paper to any one who
may apply. Bulletin. August 7.
The only answer the Advertiser has
to this honest proposition Is billings
gate and braggadocio. IT OFFERS
NO FIGURES. The Evening Echo
doesn't even peep. The proposal Is
still open. Bulletin, August 8.
Auguct 9. Still the Advertiser glvss
The Morning Organ and Its waning
echo havo agreed nmung themselves
to publish their sales. Why In the
nnmo of all Unit's reasonable don t
they publish theso figures.
The mothe of the Ouhu railway
news-stand controlled by an employe
of the Advertiser to overstate or un
derstate the facts of newspaper circula
tion has been conclusively proved by
With Humphreys and Oear on the
bench the people are fust leurnlng
that the First Circuit Court of the Ter
ritory ot Huwall Is an Institution for
dispensing Justice, and Is controlled
by no other power.
When in the hands of the biased At
torney General the balance, of justice
Is n mighty shaky affair. Men Illegally
rouWcted are still confined In prison

eral has taken no steps to give them a

needs u good wind .o properly bring
out her speedy qualities. If Owner
I-uvBon could collect some of the hot

Yacht Club members he would he suru

Tho remarkable drop In some of the
best Island sugar securities shows that
It Is not necessary to go to New York
to get squeezed or panic Btrlcken. Par
ticularly on this island arc the planta
tions free from serious difficulties as
regards labor, and the properties are
growing cane that Is n sure dividend
producer. Tho people today seem to he
as quick to accept wild rumors of fall
luo as they were two years ugo to pay
Iho dollars more a share on the
stienglh of a street prophet's state
ment. Assisted by tho new enthusiasm
aroused by tho Bulletin contest the
baseball players arc organizing for a
winter league. Tho continued Interest
in this popular sport will be highly
gratifying to the people of the city who
enjoy a first class ball game und there
re few who do not. The addition of
department clerks to the lists ot those
becoming proficient In tho game ought
to lesult in Honolulu developing a
team cupable of a successful contest
with any organization from the Coast
The Advertiser's effort to prove a
large circulation having been so promt
ly followed by an endeavor to crawl
out of an honest comparison calls to
mind tho story told by a fatmer of
how he lost a cow. The animal got
out of tho barn Into the kitchen, where
sho devoured an old umbrella and a
cake ot yeast.. The yeast fermented In
the poor beast's stomach, raised the
umbrella.and she died In terrible ngouy
from expansion. 'Tls ever thus with

Tho Inndon Dally Mall furnished
unquestioned evidence that Boers shot
British wounded In tho Vlakfonteln af
fair and finally it Is corroborated by a
report from Kitchener, As the situa
tion becomes more hopeless, a repeti
tion may bo expected at any time. The
Mrugglu has resolved Itself Into n
guerilla warfare and until thu Riltlsh
. war ollice deals with It according lo
tho rules of guerilla warfare tho stream
of money nnd blood now pouring Into
South Africa will never stop. Already
tho paclfllcutlon of tho Boers has cost
more than It can ever come to. Orcat
Britain must either fight fire with lire
or quit If sho expects to cud tho war

SUGAR TARIFP TINKERS.
The threats of sugar trust leaders
tmd beet sugar promoters to tinker
with the tariff at t)w next session of
Congress may well be regarded as
empty assertions serving only as fac
tors Iti sharp competition.. Tlio rea
sons presented In former days for the
protection of the sugar Industry are
not a whit less cogent today.
The development of tho beet sugar
Industry through the Malulnnd, the
steady progress of cane sugar produc
tion In Louisiana, tho additional In
vestment of Mainland money In Hu
rt nil nil serve as an additional In
fluence to prevent any action by Con
gress that will Hood our markets with
cither cane or beet sugars from foreign
countries. A solid phalanx of pros
perous farmers throughout the north
ern Stntes has been added to the
forces that will contend against any
reduction or manipulation of duties
that will turn a large proportion of
profits Into the coffers of refiners.
The present sugar schedule has made
thousands ot struggling farmers pros
perous and the party or Congressman
thnt tampers with the sourco of this
Income will promptly be relegated to
private life. Agricultural products
have alnist Invariably taken second
place In the advantages gained through
the protective tariff. What little has
been secured will not be given up to
satisfy the greed of powerful combina
tions seeking to rule or ruin.
Now comes the news thnt canned
goods hnvc advanced In price ns a tc
suit ot the strike. If this thing keeps
up only millionaires In Honolulu will
be able to supply their tables with
anything more luxurious than rice an I

Income tax law. The money was paid

New York, Aug. 2. Tho Journal nf
The backers of tho new refinery
v hlch Is being erected nt Edgewatcr,
near I'ort Lee, N. J., on tho Bhores oc
the Hudson river opposite the tomb of
General Grant are Robert Crooks &
Co.. among the largest Importers of
refined sugar In tnls market. How
ever, tho fact that Robert Crooks &
Co. have been Identified with the for
eign sugars is not a factor In the new
company's policy its tho firm will
merely act as ngents for the new re
finery, ti. It. Lnlng of Robert Crooks
ft Co., said that the new company
iv on Id be known ns the Knickerbocker
Sugar Refining Company.
The refinery Is to a largo client a
western enterprise, a number of ,vest
crn wholesale grocers and merchants
operating under a New Jersey charter
being Interested in the company. Geo.
K. Ross of Cleveland, Ohio, will prob
ably he offered the presidency, and be
the official hend of the new company.
Mr. Ross Is president of the Ross and
Sprngne Company, wholesale grocers
of Cleveland, Ohio. The firm of Geo.
It. New hull Engineering Company of
I'll I la del ph In, who will supervise the
Election of this plant, built the Ar
buckle letlnery, also the National of
Youkeis, the McCann of Philadelphia
nnd the I'nltcd Stntes of Camden.
The capacity of tho refinery will bo
1500 barrels dally. Tho nan Interest
ed In the plant say that they will have
l. distributing outlet of their own for
over 50 per rent of the output. It Is not
the Intention of the concerns Identi
fied with the refinery to enter Into
competition with nuyiiody. '
Now Yoik, July 20. A special to
tho Sun from Baltimore says: Follow
Ink an advance In price of tin plate,
caused by the hit el strike and r.n ad
vamc In the price of tin cans, there 13
a lluny In the canned goods market.
T. J. Median, a leading broker, said to
day: "Within ten dns there has been
an advance of 15 cents a dozen. on corn
If, cento a dozen on sauerkraut, 20
cents a dozen on tomatoes. 40 cents a
dozen on gallon apples. All staple can
ned goods have gone up 10 to 40 cents
"The advance In the price of cans
has put the price ' thice-poiind Llr.cs
t! per 100 higher than they were In
February. This means an Increnso of
9 to 10 cents a dozen ln the cost of
packing. Besides the tin plato condi
tions, the market Is affected by the
drought In the West. Heavy orders
are coming In by telegraph for sup
plies from that region, because the
drought has reduced the quantity of
foodstuffs. Avanclug prices have not
checked buying nnd the demand seems
to giow fiom day to day, although for
three weeks It has kept us working
day and night."
NEW ANDRE THEORY
New York, July 27. A cable to tho
Sun from London says: Tlio lnpso nf
threo years which Andre, who started
for the North Pole In a balloon, fixed
as the extreme limit of his return, has
revived Interest In his fate. A Norwe
gian captain of much Arctic experience
has a theory which Is Interesting. He
hays it is u fact, which Is piobably
familiar to all Arctic explorers, that
when there Is the slightest humidity
of tho atmosphere masts and satis ot
vessels aie coated thickly with Ice.
When Andre started wet snow was
falling and tho balloon would soon bo
coated with Ice. Its buoyance would
be overweighted and It could not re
main long aloft. The wind would car
ry It lu the direction of Franz Josiph
Land, between which nnd Nova Zembln
It would probably fall Into tho sea.
This captain Bays that the wreck ulti
mately may be found on one or tha
other of these coasts.
