The steadying influence of the
Stock Exchnngc is already being felt.
It is proving what its projectors said
it woukl, an exact barometer or mar
Ewa, which for some days has been
showing a downward tendency, has
recovered. There were plenty of ta
kers at 240, and the price strengthen
ed, 242ls being the lowest price oaken.
There were no sales of jt on the board
however. Oahu assessable which Has
been considerably higher was quoted
today nt 120 asked and 117 bid.
Ookala was the only stock dealt in
on the board this morning. Forty-five
shares chonged hands at 100. There
were two blocks sold at this figure,
one of 25 shares and the other of 20.
This is a recession from the figures'at
which the stock has been held and at
which sales have be.en currently reported.
The prices asked for other stocks
were American Sugar paid up, 120;
Hawaiian Sugar Company, 175; nono-
mu, 335; Hohoknn.400; Kahuku, 150;
Oahu, paid up, 150; Paia Plantation,
250; Pepeekeo, 215; Pioneer Mill, 400;
Waimnnnlo. 197',; Inter Island, 145;
Mutual Telephone, 14.
The general tnlk on the exchange
was not thnt prices were receding be
cause of any lack of confidence, but
because the banks are not loaning
money on stocks as freely as they
were, which circumscribes buyers,
while the few blocks of stock that
have to be sold suffer from this lack
of ready capital.
As one broker put it: "If some
stocks have gone down, the Stock Ex
change informs the public and inves
tors just how much. ithout the ex
change the public would not know the
exact state of the market." '
Daily meetings will be held liet car
ter. It is understood that the roojns
known as the Hawaiian Lodge quar
ters, nt the corner of Fort and Queen
streets, have been secured as perma

10 8 Dill OF POWER
According to the accounts brought
by the passengers on the Klnnu borne
out by the utterances of the Hilo pa
pers, the rainy city lias been in n de
lirium 01 excitement since Tuesday,
which even exceeded that when the
Annexation Commission, Admiral Mil
ler and the Philadelphia and Llliuo-
kalanl were all there together.
The Uty of Columbia arrived there
I'uesdny morning, with the first for-
Ign mail that ever came there direct,
big party of excursionists, a theat
rical company that gave a pcrform-
nee in Snreekels hall, nnd the prom-
se that Hilo would eventually be the
principal seaport in the Islands nnd
the biggest one between the mainland
nd the Orient. This Intter optimistic
hope rather got a cold water drench
ing bv the announcement made by
the manager of the steamship thnt It
would not return to Hilo ns more
freight was to lie obtained at Hono-
ulu, and it would not pay to return
In addition to all this there was a
little romance on board the steamer
coming down from Seattle, which had
its denoument in Hilo before the Unit
ed States Consular agent there. One
of the passengers, nccording to the
Hawaii Herald, paid marked attention
o a lady member of the thentrical
company, encouraged by the young
lady's mother, but frowned on by the
father. For the fathers frowns the
young man gave him a belaying pin,
nnd all parties were locked up by the
nptain. Uefore the Consular Agent
the father, who seems to hnve come to,
said he had fallen and hurt himself,
and all ended happily.
Tlie oillcers of the steamship and
many of the passengers were tnken
on excursions through the plantations
and all together Hilo seems to tiavc
done her best to make a good impression.
When the Kinau left, the City of Co".
umbia was scheduled to sail for Hon
olulu this morning.
There, will be a union meeting of
the yountr "people's societies of the
different churches at Kawaiahoo
church, on Sunday evening, at 0:30
o'clock. Leaders of this meeting are
requested to meet for conference nt

ening but transacted very little busi
ness. An adjournment was had until

meantime how much of the appropria
tions made for the department is
