bo thoroughly at home In their work, which Is a good deal more tlinu I
could say (or myself for I was bewildered, there was such a maze of pipes,
boilers, tanks, engines and machinery. Ill tell jou Pa, It Is hard to realize
tho caro and attention that they give to the manufacturing and delivering
of good gas to tho public. The Doss tells mo that tho gas hero Is made
from oil, tho same as alt tho largo towns on tho Pacific Coist. He said ga3
could bo mado from coal, coke and water, wood nnd many other substances,
none, of them beginning to compare villi oil gas for purity and heating and
lighting values. The gas generator Is a series of large steel shells, flllod
with a checker work of fire brick. Thcso nro heated to a white heat and
tho oil Is then sprayed on thcso hot brick and Is turned to gas, which Is
called hydro-carbon gis. Tho gas Is then washed and scrubbed and purified
many times until there Is absolutely no chnnco of any dirt remaining. Tho
Hoss tells mo 'they are more particular about delivering good clean gas
hero than In almost any other city In the world. Next "week I'll tell you
how tho gas Is delivered to tho consumers. With lavo.

IN BUSINESS CIRCLES
Who It Selling?
One of tho stories of the week re
garding tho drop In the stock mar
ket Is that San rranclsco wiuitu to
sell out Its sugar stocks .because
money In that city' Is turning to real
estate Investment; nnd knowing
this, the Honolulu people- will not
start to buy until the mnrkct reaches
the lowest possible point. Another
)aru of tho street Is that some of
the big men locdlly hnve decided
that tho time has arrived nor them
to sell out and clean up. Conse
quently, thoso who have knowledge
of this fact are .watting for the,
price to slump to the lowest figure.
What tho market can do under 'such
condition was shown very forcibly
when the eight hundred-odd shares
of-Olaa were thrownon tho market
and sold at G.2S. Tho quotation for
Sugar price advanco and sugar
stock depression have been tho dis
tinctive features of the business con
fer this week.
i Every Indication of tho quotations
received during tho week Is that
fwhen raw sugar went down to 4.24
some weeks ago and beetB dropped
10 a parity 01 Jive cents, mo uear
movement had reached Its 'limit for
the season. Slnco the recovery be
gan, tho advance to 4.30 and a par
ity of 6.15 has been very Bteady, the
only setback being the shading down
from 4.325 on Thursday tq 4.30 on
Friday. Holloed sugar In New, York
was also advanced during the week,
which Is 'another Indication, of tho
strength of the market.
Since the slump of. the, early part
of April, the prophets have been very
careful about forecasting very high
prices during tho summer, nmBomc
of them have revised theln- figures' so
much that they now sny we nro on
tho crest ot the wave of exceptional
prices that may break at any time,
On the other hand, not a, single In-
iiucnt oi ma statistics or tuo re
turns from sugar producing coun
tries has, arisen to weaken the situ
ation. Early April found some ot
tho Cuban planters who, bad to sell,
and as Is usually the case In such
Instances, tho market was prepared
to recctvo them. Nothing has oc
currcd to Increasa the estimates of
tbo Cuban crop, and although the
Wlllett & Gray circular occasionally
talks about the India sugar crop as
something never before taken Into
consideration, no qno can discover
that India has had an Influence on
the market or Is likely to have,
Next to tlio price of slocks the
I tight money market has been the
I favorite topic. An,d, cu,rlously
I enough, opinions differ on whether
I tlio money market is ienlly tlgljt or
not. Some-claim" that' they can got
luH tho money they want at tbo
bauks, while other brokers state that,
tho financial conditions ot the town
nro such that very few of their cli
ents ask for loans; they have bank
accounts and do business oti their
One broker states that Intorest
rates havo been raised one per cent,
to the casual borrower, but regular
clients are still looked after at the
Qenerally speaking, the banks are
taking care of their customers as
they are called on, though some
times suggesting that they niako tho
requests as light ns possible until
after tho fifteenth of tho month,
whon taxes will be paid and tho gon-
cral movement ot money from sugar
returns will be fairly started In this
perate on Friday, selling at 133. SO.
Outside ot BUgur, the market has
been played battledore and shuttle
cock with tho Ilrewcry stock. It
started from 17 shortly after the
passago ot the prohibition plebiscite
nnd has been selling In small lots
until It lias reached 12.125. Orig
