RUM IN PROHIBITION STATE
"How are you going to carry a Re

This query appears in a State of

it speaks volumes for tho efficacy
of the prohibitory law In tho pioneer
Prohibition State. It means that
liquor Is handy, and not necessarily
'uid liquor, at that.
Maine Is entitled to solve Its own
problems in Its own wny. Maine's
xpcrlcnce Is such, however, that it
'urnlshcs a strong argument for Ha
wall, with Its admittedly good law
regulating tho liquor traffic, to let

CARGO ARRIVED TO

Various Reasons Given (
For Recent Drop
Tho Sugar Factors Company lias
received by tablo news of tho arrival
of tho steamship American nt New
York on May 17. Sho nrrlvcd nt n
lucky time. Just bcfoie the recent
drop In the prlco of sugar, and prob
ably fetched 4,36 cents a pound for
her 6.000-ton cargo of Hawaiian su
gars. The steamship califorman
was dun to arrive May 24, and prob
ably did arrlvo on or about thut
date, although no advices In regard
thereto have, as ct been received.
Should sho havo arrived' her cargo.
also of nlmut six thousand tons, will
probably have brought about 4.25
cents n pound.
Tlie recent drop In the prlco of
beet sugar has nffoidcd the pabulum
for considerable speculation, al
though nt this distance from the mar
ket It Is Impossible to do more than
surmise. Among th reasons which
havo been suggested locally as being
probable Is the fact that Urrgland re
cently reduced her duty on Imported
sugars to less than half of what It
formerly was, this drop going into
effect about tho middle of tho pres
ent month. Tho cut amounts to for
ty cents per hundred of 98-dcgrco
It is also (unsldcrcd probablo that
the fact that according to tho terms
of tho last convention Russia can ex
port 300,000 tons of sugar to Dng
land, which sugar can bo imported
from September 1, may havo affect
ed tho beet market of Kuropc, thut
dato being now so close at hand that
bujers will begin to figure on this
Inigo addition t? the production of
the other continental bcot-produclng
Finally the suggestion' has been
made that as the beet sowings begin
to become definitely known during
this month II Is probablo that It has
been found that tho area In beets
exceeds tho catlmatC figured on pre
