A PLEASANT TONIC
IN BUSINESS CIRCLES
The Inst week tn April, 1910, will
be numbered among Itio dull weeks
of the. ycnr In u grAt hiuny lines
of IjiisIiicsj. So far ns Ihc retail
trade of tho city Is concerned, the
beginning of the summer exodus or
city residents has mi effect that must
be taken Into consideration. The
absence of our own people Is felt par
ticularly nlong Fnrt street ami In
the markets. Tho steamers Sierra
nnd Wllholmlnn. that loft during (he
week, took a large nmnlier of fami
lies who will, ho spending the money
tliat usually goes for Honolulu
household supplies. In traveling ex
penses ai:J atnorig merchants of the
mainland. This shortage, If It may
be so termed, will soon he made up,
doubtlets, .by tho coming of the sum
mer tourists, Meanwhile, the ho
teU aro having dull days, nnd tho
mcrcnntllo houses find it necessary
to enter to the demands of the lefii
wealthy residents who spend their
summer In "tho Islands. '
Stocks during the week have suf
fered a slump, followed by a fair re
vival of strength nmong the cheap
stocks. Olan and Mcllrlde dropped
to Ii.25 nnd 5. SO, respectively, und
after a block of over one thousand
shares of Olan had been disposed of
nt fi.2!, thoso two stocks, which
havo usually run on about the same
level, recovered to G.TS nnd C, re
spectively. This Inrgo sale of Olaa
Is a fair snmplo of what happens In
the local stock market when the pub
lic gets nu Idea that the Heller of
nny largo block of stock Is" willing
to takp the market price, or, In other
words, what ho can get for his bo
curlty, Forty-eight hours after the
Bale of Olaa had been made nt G.25,
one hundred nnd fifty shares of tho
name, stock sold at JG.
Among tho more stnble stocks of
the list, 15 wn hns advanced to 34.75
and I) held strong at 34.87S. Oahu,
which has ordinarily followed Kwa
in the advance, remains stationary
at 30 nnd 30.125. Hawaiian Com
mercial dropped to 4'2.i5 on a sale
of fifty shares, but so far ns known

made, nii'd the demand has not been
very Bhnrp for hU stock; The Fri
day quotation was 132.50 bid, but
this price does not attract any sell
ers. Tho" juices at Walalua' were
running rnthor low n sucrose eary
In, tbo season, but It Is understood
that n splendid record Is now
beng made both in the amount of
ctine takon to the acre and, the per
centage of sugar In the juice.
Very little buelnesa hns been done
in stocks .other than sugar. Mutual

money has been sent out. and Is still
