Many Valentine Parties in
Celebration of Happy Day
SL Valentine's Day dates back I 1
ntlne was a bishrn and church martyr, put to death 'at Rome during the
ersecution under, Claudius II. Just how the pretty customs now connected
Ith this day got their origin la not definitely known, but it was an old
ellef that birds began to mate ononis day and the traditions of the day
vere probably associated with some of the bishop's writings.
In early days young people of both sexes began to meet on the eve of
his day and draw lots for partners, each thus becoming the "va'entine" of
nother, and from this simple origin a wide diversity of customs has
prung. Even In the early Roman days there were many observances aimi
ir to those of the present time.
' In Honolulu tbe shop-window's have been decorated with St. Valentine
ards and symbols for a week or more. Many Valentine parties are being
eld this afternoon and evening. A number of children's parties have been
rranged for the afternoon.

HIGH PRICE OF

With August options at 4.01 and 4.02
for Cubans, sellers in New York are
not weakening the "market hy coming
down to bid prices, arc-rdin? to the
January 28 Sugar Market Review put
out by Nevers & Callaghan of 99 Wall
Street New York. The firm's resume
"Following the large transactions in
raws last week It was but natural that
quieter conditions should prevail in
the market dur'nc this wrek. Refin
ers had bought sufficient supplies to
take care of their extensive commit
ments for refined, both for domestic
and export purposes, and their hiv
ing during this week was limited to
purchases of sugars afloat or in very
nearby positions to fill in gaps caused
by delays in arrivals.
These purchases consisted of about
23,00 bags of Porto RIcoa for early
February clearance bought at the b
glnn'ng of the week at 4.64c basis 9"
degrees c. I. t, and approximately
WM'O Cubas aficat or about to clear
bought subsequently during the weeV
at 3 3-4 bas's 06 degrees c. & f
(4.77c). AH offerings of Cubas in very
nearby positions were readily placed
at the 3 3-4c basis .although moderate
quantities for , Febr nry. and March
shipment held at 3 3-4c basis 96 deg.
C & f.. failed to attract bnyers. How
ever, while refiners persisted Jn their
attitude of indifference all during the
week toward the offerings of February
and March at 3 3-4c, yet holder had
sold sufficient sugars to make a firm
rosition possible and refused to
"It was understood that any conces
sion on the part of se'lers would have
attracted speculative buying and that
refiners might even have become in
terested at 1-1 6c below the 3 3-4c basis
asking price. At the close, the mar
ket continues ouiet

ready to meet holders' Ideas of 3 3-4c

; ."The tonnage situation has been
and will continue to be, an important
market factor , in limHing . offerings
from Cuba, not alone" n account of
scarcity of vessels but also on account
of the high rates , being exacted. Dur
ing' the week, freight engagements
were made IJpr sugar at 45 cents per
100 pounds from, north-side Cuban
ports and as high as 53c per 100 lbs.,
from the south-side ports.
"The. weekly cable on Tuesday from
Cuba reported receipts of 110,932 tons

pared to 71,000 tons and 148 Centrals

withdrawals were liberal during this
week. The export trade continued
placing small orders during the week
and the demand for Cubes for export
caused all refiners to advance their
lists 10 points on this grade. All
other grades remained unchanged on
