Shadow of Herself Stomach Was Too Weak to Retain Food A Complete Cure Effected by Hood's Sarsaparilla The full meaning of the change of control of the Hawaiian Commercial and Sugar Company Is evidently not understood in San Francisco. The Examiner of October 3 says; Many are interested in the question of who owns the Hawaiian Commer cial Company'.' That Mr. 1'olltt nnd his fejlow stockholders on the board of directors are not the principal own ers of the 110,000 shares they represent Is well known. Daniel Meyer is cred ited with the ownership of a large block, hence Albert Meyer was chosen as one of the directors, but the bulk of t ho stock is owned by a New York syndicate. Such, at any rate, was the talk on the street yesterday. The story of the young Spreokels' Histnarekian method of diplomacy that of telling the truth and winning because the clever people on the out side did not believe them, is finding HI tin V adherents. Tim lirnl.-i.-u did not believe and who infused their own incredulity into their clients real ly played directly into the hands of 11. A. ... . me i wo young men. niey prevented the depreciation of the stock, which they believed the Sprockets were trv ing to "bear." and so the two broth ers got better prices than they ex pected. The average price at. which they sold three-quarters of the sugar company's stock was about $2fi, und at this price they realized neorlv $2, 000,000. Their actual profit was al most a million more all made in four and a half years out of a company the stock of which at the beginning of that time hud practically no market value. In the four and a half years the Spreokels brothers ventured their all, and at one time the company ow ed them $400,000 for money advanced. To bring the company through its financial straits into its present afflu ent condition was a dilllcult task. The brothers have alternately spent sev eral mouths of each year at the plan tation, traveling on horseback over the red, dusty soil from morning un til night and practicing the strictest economy in the management. Charles S. Wheeler, one of the re cent directors, and the attorney of the company, said yesterday. "I know that both Hn Simmljulu brothers are well pleased tn.be out of the company nnd are to be relieved of the strain of financiering so large a corporation. 1 am aware that some people are incredulous and affect to believe that the directors had some ulterior motive in which their pur pom, has now been balked. This is not, so. 'I would like to add that the best of feeling ovists between the retired and the newly chosen directors. We know that the property is well worth $3,(100,000 and that it is in a very prosperous condition today, and we sincerely hope that the new owners will be successful with it. Not oulv will they have the best wishes of Go's and Rudolph Spreokels. but also any little hell) that can 1.. afforded in the assumption of a business which must be more or loss new to them will be gladly given bv them and their late associates on the board of directors." SUNDAY SCHOOL WORKERS. An organization or Sunday school superintendents and teachers was de cided on yesterday afternoon at a mooting called for that purpose at the Y. M. C. A. hall. The plan adopted was that proposed by Professor Theo dore Itiehunls. Weekly meetings will bo hold, the first one next Friday, at whioh tlie study of the Sunday school lessons will bo carried on ami a plan of teaching general to all the church es will be adopted. W. A. llowen presided at the moot ing. The churches represented were Central Union, Methodist, Christian, Portuguese, Kawaiahao and Kannia kapili. A committee to form a per manent organization was appointed, consisting of I'rofesMir Richards, W. C. Weedon, Colonel De la Vergne, Mrs. O. L. Pearson and W. A. Bowen. MIt. CURZO.VS SALAItY. The Indian vice royalty was In time past regarded as the one great finan cial prize among satrapies, but it is understood to have become, in part, no doubt, by reason of the fall in the rupee, much reduced In value. The salary ($125,000) is not large for a functionary who has to maintain so much pomp and circumstance, but the allowance for expenses are on a very liberal scale. In the case of oth er governorships it is almost impossi ble to "do the thing well" and to ef fect any saving out of the salary. It may be observed that wealthy men very rarely accept those positions. In fact, it may be questioned whether a wealthy man has ever held the vice royalty of India. Lord Brassoy, Lord Jersey and Lord Aberdeen, among governors, are rare exceptions, and the first named, as governor of Victo ria, when the salary had been reduc ed from $50,000 to $3.1,000, refused to take it if a further reduction was made. Now Enjoying tho Boat of Health,, With Digestion Perfect. " My mother was subject to sick hesrl aches and indigestion tor over a year, 8 ho was unable to stand for any length) of time, and was obliged to stay in R dark, room as she could not bear tho light. She had no appetite whatever and her stoinacn. was so weak bIic could not retain what food she did eat. Sho also had severer pains in her head. Sho suffered so much that sho became but tho shadow of hex Belt. One day I happened to read a tes timonial about Hood's Sarsaparilla. It. Sounded So Truthful I persuaded her to try this medicine. Bctoro finishing the first bottle thero was an improvement In her condition. Sho no longer threw up her food and her hcadT acho was not as Bcvero. Sho took in all four bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla nndl several boxes of Hood's Fills and regained! her weight. She is now enjoying tho beat ot health. Her digestion la good and sho can cat almost anything she wishes. Sho is 42 years old and Bays she feels as well as when sho was 16. Hood's Sarsaparilla made a complete euro in her caBO."
