HAS GONE UP
The rise in sugar, both cano and beet,
for three months liast has been very
gradual and steady, as shown by the
quotations cabled regularly by W'l
Hams, Dlmond & Company. Almost ev
ery week has shown a small advance,
the rise of late being more rapid than
it was a couple of months ago, and
those who have been keeping car?fuj
watch are hoping for more advances.
Starting on June 1 with beet bugaris

A NEW CRUISER
.5P2&a6f THE&ESIA.. ft
Russia recently purchased the S. S. Kalserin Theresa from a German steamship company. She was a swift
German liner and was at once converted by Russia into an auxiliary cruiser. She i now in service, having gone
to sea under sealed orders. It was understood that her mission was to be the Interception of Japanese contra
band of war at the Cape of Good Hope. The new cruiser will probably be made a part of the Baltic fleet, if the
latter ever completes the journey to the scene of war.

PAXON BISHOP, J. At. DOWSETT AND SAM DWIGHT MAY BE
CANDIDATES FOR THE TERRITORIAL SENATE LONG LIST OP
MEN WHO WOULD LIKE NOMINATIONS FOR UPPER OR LOW
ER HOUSE OF THE LEGISLATURE.
For the Territorial Senate from Oahu, Sam Dwight, J. M. Dowsett and E.
Faxon Bishop are three newly suggested names which are being much dis
cussed among local Republicans. It is believed that they would make a
strong ticket and probably all three will be before the convention when it
meets. Bishop is also talked of for treasurer of the new Republican Terri
torial central committee. There is to be a general change in the committee,
according to the present outlook, and it is desired to have a man who can
command the confidence of the business community, as Bishop can.
Senator Cecil Brown has definitely annlTilhced 'himself as a candidate for
another term, and will be befor? the convention for a nomination. A num
ber of delegates have already declared themselves for him. The senator
has served continuously since the first Territorial legislature.
John Hughes is another Republican who wants to go to the Senate.
Hughes has announced himself to friends and it is understood that he intends
to make a fight and already has some votes pledged to him. Hughes was
one of the last Fourth of July orators and is a well known Republican. S.
F. Chillingworth, a member of the House, has also been spoken of for the
Senate, but it is said now that he will probably ask a renomination as rep
resentative. Among others mentioned for the upper House there is a long list of
Fiflh District men. Senator Kanuha is among them, also Henry E. Cooper.
John C. Lane, who was a candidate, for a senatorial nomination last time, Is
again talked of and will probably be up for either the House or Senate. T.
McCants Stewart is also in the field and would accept a nominaiton. S. E.
Damon, William Mutch, Joseph Fern and K. R. G. Wallace, competle a list
of Fifth District men who are all believed to be willing to serve the party in
the upper House.
For the lower House the Fifth District is just as rich in candidates, while
the Fourth, with the exception of Bipikane of Kakaako, does not seem to
have any very active aspirants except those in the House now. Represent
atives Harris, Chillingworth, Andrade, Aylctt and Long all want to run
again. Kumalae's Republican seat is a vacancy to be filled, he having gone
over to the Home Rulers, In the Fifth Vida would like to run again, and
some of those already named as possible Senators will go into the lower
House instead if they can do so and find the higher nomination not
obtainable by them. Others arc William Olepau, Eli J. Crawford, John
Pulao, S. A. Macy, L. Kamealoha, Solomon Mahelona, Edward Kcaloha.
The Republicans are anticipating a clean sweep of Oahu this time. The
prospects are believed to be more favorable than ever before for-electing
all the legislative ticket here, and a nomination by the coming Republican
convention is therefore regarded as equivalent to an election.
It appears likely now that most of the Honolulu delegates will take the
trip to Hilo for the convention. There is much objection to having a "proxy"
convention, and those who are objecting to the trip are being persuaded that
they owe it to the party to go.

Y. A. Kinne, the attorney -at-la-.v, lias brought a suit for $50,
000 damages for libel, against Samuel Parker. The damages arc
asked on account of statements made by Parker in an affidavit
filed yesterday in connection with .the Parker ranch litigation.
Parker swore to certain allegations reflecting upon Kinney's con
duct as a member of the bar, adding that he believed that Kinney
had so acted that he was not fit to practice. The suit for $50,000
is a result. The complaint says in part:
"That on or about the 15th day of August, A. D. 1904, the de
fendant well knowing the premises, did maliciously compose,
print and publish the following false scandalous, malicious, libel
ous and defamatory matter of and concerning plaintifi, and, in
relation to his profession as a lawyer and caused the same to be
circulated throughout the aforesaid Honolulu.
"That not only were said Kinney (referring to the plaintiff Wil
liam A. Kinney) and Ballon promoters of said enterprise (refer
ring to an enterprise known as the Hamakua Ditch Co., Ltd.,)
but they acted as attorneys and advisers of deponent (referring
to the defendant Samuel Parker) and through their advice depo
nent (referring to said defendant) signed an agreement under
which it is claimed by the other party to said agreement that de
ponent, (referring to said defendant) was and still is liable to said
other party in the sum of $100,000. That said Kinney, (referring
to said plaintiff), and Ballou did not become parties to said agree
ment, taking good care not to make themselves liable under the
same, making deponent (referring to said defendant) solely liable,
though thev would have benefitted jointly with deponent (refer
ring to said defendant) thereunder. That the action of said Kin-

damaged In the flrst attack on Port Arthur, February 8. After that battle
