Southerly wenther and other at
tractions appear to havo got into tho
market thin week. Hut general bus
iness hag been cry brisk notwltli
itantllng tlio quiet that has prevail
ed In tho stock market. There Is
nothing serious the matter. It Is
morel) one of tho temporary dull .
periods of tho market.
0( moio Interest nnd more Im
portance this week hac been tho 111
rhal of tho lsltlng Congressional
pnrty on tho Siberia Monday and of
the Immigration Commissioners on
the Alameda on Frlda. In its first
anal) sis, tho coming of tho Immigra
tion CommlsslonciH will be of more
Importance to tho Territory thnn the
Congressmen, though It Is of course
cr beneficial to tho future of tho
Ulands that ns many as possible of
tho legislators nnd executive omccrs
of tho Nation should cumo hero nnd
Jec for themselves.
(leneral Innctlon hns ruled tho
dock market, nlthnugli soma good
ilzcd deuls have been put through
'hat would hno looked vur) largo u
year ago. Tho whole Hit has sagged
under tho Influcnio of selling orders
predominating tho lnilng orders.
This li.m not nttracted any particu
'ur Block. Uv.n. of course, dropped
i.ick following the payment of Its
sxtrn 2 per cent dividend. Hawa
iian Commercial has dropped down
o thlrt) -three nnd u fraction on ac
count of lnige selling orders, some
f which nrc said to have not been
reported, duo to the belief that tho
xpected extra dividend will be post
inned for n month, Mukaweli hns
finished its crop and Is selling strong

nu has sold this week, nnd tho Incl
lent Is notable because ery little
it this stock Is seen on tho market.
3cernl hundred shares of Honokaa

o 31 1-J bid, but with nono coming

Tho prlco for centrifugals has re
ii a I ned tho same, and tho latter part
of our island . crop is going on the
nnrket at n splendid figure. The
quotation of greatest Interest Is
that of European beets. This hns
ieen chnnglng every day, showing
cry uctlvo speculation market,
nit the reassuring feature Is that
for ccry drop thero is'n prompt re
oery. This menns that the ro-
mits of crop shortage nre being
Fully confirmed s tho season pro
gresses. Tho quotation of Friday
ihoued a recovery to lis 9d, with a
rarity of 4.49.
Admiral llolljdaj'u arrival has
been rather oicrshadowcd by the
ne'mbers of Congress and Intensified
To get the best out of life one
must keep the body and mind
in good condition at all time's.
For good health and good
cheer there is nothing to equal
by tho fact that tho Admiral does
not talk much. At the same time all
the Pearl Hnrbor work is being
pushed right ahead, and tho same
may bo said of all ami) and fortifi
cation operations. Tho monthly pa
roll of tho local Engineer's office for
salaries and payrolls alone Is never
less nnd more often more than $18,-
000, mid will probably Increase be
fore It di creases This gives some
Idea of what tho engineers nlone arc
Specifications have been received
in Honolulu for tho construction of
concrete buildings for tho barracks
for marines at tho Pearl Hnrbor
Navy Yard, and It Is thought that
the bids will bo called within the
next ninety da)s. This Involves on
appropriation ' of $185,000. An
army hospital .probabl) to be located
it I.cllehua is also one of ho pro
jects under way, nnd construction
may bo determined upon at any time.
This will ho a $100,000 affair. The
dredging Is going forward under
good headway all the time, nnd the
construction of tho naval dock will
begin shortly. Manager llallcnt)ne
has returned from his tour to pur
chase material and reports that the
ilapld Transit will be running cars
to Pearl llarhoi within u month.
riling of tho lato C M, Cooko's
will and the problem his estate mis
cs under the Inheritance tax has
been n matter of general Interest
Mr. CooK'o left ever) thing to his
family, stating that he had endear
ored to do his duty In u phllanthrop
to spirit vyhllo living nnd left It to
tho good judgment of his children
to contlnuo to do so with the es
tate left them. The heirs stnto that
nothing will bo put in tho way of an
equitable valuation of the estato and
tho payment of the Inheritance tax
It. Is believed that tho personal nnd
real property In Honolulu will
amount to at least $3,000,000, and
the Inheritance tax will bo In the
neighborhood of $00,000.
The Planters' Association, follow
ing out the plan it has been work
ing on for many months, hns made
an advanco In contract or profit
sharing rates for agricultural cul
tlvatlon of the cane crop. This does
not mean a raise of day wages, but
It docs mean that some of the con
tractors cultivating fields on a profit
sharing basis will make from forty
to fifty dollars a month.
Announcement Is made this week
that tho contract with the American
Sugar Refining Co. for the sale of
the Island sugars handled by the
Sugar Factors Company, has been
extended for another tluoe-year per
iod. This assures the marketing of
the Island taignrs on that basis for
another four jcam, ns tho present
contract hns a )car to run.
The passenger traffic to the Is
lands Is increasing by leaps and
bounds. The Alameda came In this
week with n record cargo nnd pas
senger list. This, of course, was
due to the returning school tetchers
so far as the pnsscngcr lltt Is con
cerned, but It is evident that the
travel to the Islands will be very
much Increased this winter.
Secretary Wood will leave In the
Chl)o Maru on the 17th for a tour

Editor Evening 1) til lot In:
I Quote from our "In lluslncss
Circles" dated Aug. 28, as follows:
"One of ihe happy features of tho
situation Is that the LITTLE MAN.
the BMALL DtfALER, is doing well.
Well, here's the proof a's to how
the small dealer gets off. A ship
ment of potatoes was 'mado to Ho
nolulu from one of the other Islands
and the small dealer's returns were
1C bags potatoes
2 sold at $1G0 per big.
2 sold at $0.7C per hug.
12 sold at $0.45 per bug.
Less commission, E per cent.
Freight, 10c per bag 1.C0
The SMALL dealer, PAID for
these potatoes at point of shipment:
$1.50 per bag $24.00
Not to Small Dealer 7.80
Loss to Small Dealer $10.20
The explanation to Small Dealer
on tho small returns were that the
12 bags sold at 4Cc 'vtcre damaged,
yet the potatoes wero nil exact))'
alike, camo from the samo field, and
were new. Yours very'.truly.
