TAPE) Considerable consternation was felt yesterday in local financial circles following the publication of the news of the deposition of Premier Keren sky of Russia, and local holders of the Russian bonds, of which three mil lion rubles' worth have been sold here, were particularly anxious regarding their investments. That the New York bankers were 'in the know" Wednesday regarding thp dpnnsitinn of Kerensky is shown j by the fact that heavy liquidation of ' Russian bonds took place and the i price dropped from 140 to 125. Part of i- this drop was of course influenced by the general trend of the market, which j has been exceedingly bearish - during the past week. ; v Local holders of Russian bonds", who are not trading for--quick turnovers, should be content to hold their securi ties without the slighest apprehension as to their future value, for it is the general belief of financial . experts that while the bonds may reach lower levels than ever before should Rus sia declare peace with Germany they will eventually return to par when the world-wide peace is declared. While a peace between Russia and Germany would today cause a crash of tremendous proportions on the New York market, a crash that would prob ably be lasting for some time in near ly all stocks and bonds, the Russian bonds would be the only securities with the exception of war brides to rise from .the crash. For such a peace would bring German gold into Russia for her wheat and petroleum and would tend to stabilize her trade bal ance. Where in 1913 Russia's trade bal ance was in her favor $75,000,000 to day it is nil, and the balance is against her .to the extent of $1,000,000,000. That is to say, her imports are $1,001), 000,000 in excess of her exports. By declaring peace with.. Germany she could immediately commence exporta tion and this would bring gold into the country and restore her financial stability which would result in "a bull ish market for her bonds.. On the other hand, if Russia con tinues in her present condition with out an able recognized leader such as Kerensky might have proved to be, the bonds will drop to lower levels. But even if they do the end of the world war will bring them up again to high levels because it is a well known fact that war bonds always rise the mo ment peace is declared. , So that in any event local holders of Russian bonds need have no fear for the safety of their investments.. .

Com pany contemplate the purchase of $75, 000 worth of territorial bonds to cover the appropriation for a wharf at Hana, Maui, is given in an announcement by Treasurer Charles J. McCarthy at the harbor board meeting yesterday. The treasurer stated that he has re ceived a query from the Davies firm as to whether the Hana work would be taken up should such a purchase of bonds be made. Governor Pinkham had approved such an allotment, he said, and the harbor board also voted approval. The Kaeleku Sugar Com j. pany, client 0f T. H. Davies & Co., is ' at Hana ! SUGAR PUBLISHER DIES NEW TORY. Oct. lfi. Wallace Tot ter Willett. senior member of the firm of Willett and Gray, publishers .of the Weekly Statistical Sugar Trade Journal and Daily Sugar Trade Jour jnal, dean of sugar trade in lower Wall j street, and universally recognized as ione of the world's leading sugar i statistical experts, died in his eighty- second year, at his residence m East -Orange, New Jersey, on Saturday,' October : 13. Mr. Willett's death was reported to sugar circles on Monday '. and was received with sincere and ; deep regrets throughout the trade with ! , which he had been associated for over 65 years, and in which he heid a, unique and commanding position.

SHAFTER Work on the new ordnance build ings at Fort Shatter ."is, being delayed for lack of structural steel, which; is lying on the piers in San Francisco awaiting cargo space to Honolulu. Of the twelve ordnance buildings, nine are now ready for the steel, trestles, and not a bit of steel is on hand to build them. '. . V . - ;V Local contractors and architects are much concerned over the structural steel and other building materials situation. ... Last - Friday - Ripley & Davis, architects in the Boston build ing, sent a cable to their jobbers in San Francisco, asking if building ma terial would be placed on the. freight embargo list. Yesterday the answer came, saying that while there would doubtless ' be . delays the materials would surely come. t . ' From the cable which was em phatic," said Mr. Ripley, "I take it that there is no occasion for undue alarm. Of one thing I am assured and that is that building materials are hot going to be classed as luxuries, and that such goods will be shipped as room can be made for them along with other life necessities. We are going ahead with our plans for new buildings just as we should do in nor mal times, so far as shipments are concerned." As for lumber shipments, much of that is looked after by the jumbal dealers themselves, who own Schoon ers that are used for no otlfer purpose than carrying Iumb?r. If the lumber can be got to the Yve3t Coast poris, t local contractor believes it can be brought to Honolulu. The same contractor, however, ex pects to see a considerable falling off in the, erection of big buildings re quiring steel and iron in their con struction. This state of affairs is al most inevitable, since not only is cargo space lacking for the shipment of such material, but the difficulty that lies in the way of the purchase of structural steel and iron for commer cial purposes will not be overcome until the end of the war. LI. S. OPTIONS WASHINGTON,' D. C, Oct. 28 Op tions have been taken by the 1 food administration upon all sugar belonging to neutral countries held in this country awaiting export. This was disclosed tonight in a statement by the administration denying pub lished reports that it was trying to force the neutrals, unable to get ex port licenses, to sell their sugar at a loss. The options are at the prices paid by the neutrals. No figures , were given, but the administration said that with the tariff duty added the aver age price would be 50 cents a hun dred higher than the price it has undertaken to maintain for the bene fit of the American consuming pub lic. There is no indication of an in tention to permit the cost to the pub lic to be increased, so probably few of the options will be exercised for domestic uses. The' administration emphatically denied that it had placed any restrict tion upon the sale of sugar by neutrals to American manufacturers. "There is no reason for undue hasf in this matter," the administration's , statement adds inasmuch Tin rna is really suffering from the temporary sugar shortage. . Enforced conserva tion is not an unmixed evil, it was added, as it brings to the attention of the American public, in a not harmful way, the vital necessity of conserving food products. America will have .but one or two weeks of scarcity of sugar, while Europe has had three years Ol such shortage." ; A family allowance of $40 a month has been granted Mrs. Malamanul Weatherwax and Edwin and Herbert Weatherwax, sons, survivors of the late Charles II.
