III. V. IMIIingluim Talks or Future
Honolulu, Sept. 2. Among the
I passengers from San l;rancisco in
I the Sierra this morning was 11, I.
Dillingham, who lias been absent
from the Territory since June 9 of
fills Vivir. Ilni-tiitr nil tlmt li't.10 li !
was in San Francisco attending to I
various important matters of busi- j
,ness which he went up to attend to. j
I Mr. Dillingham, when seen this
! morning, stated that he had aceoni-1
plished everything he had gone!
after and felt perfectly satisfied with I
his trip. He did not care to go into
details about what he had done. I
Continuing, Mr. Dillingham said:
"I found while on the coast that the
cable men there were very much
pleased with the increase in business
over the wire between San Francisco
and Honolulu. The increase had
been steady from the beginning,
and though growing steadily, the
business was then as good as the
cable people had ever had reason to
"I want to say thnt among the
financiers on the coast confidence is
fast being restored iu Hawaiian se
curities. They feel perfectly confi-
i dent that the islands are now going
ahead. They know the crops are
increasing and that next year we
will have about 450,000 tons as our
output, which is double what it was
in 1898. I had quite a lot of talks
with those men on the coast and I
made them see a great deal ol good
in a country that could double its
exports iu six years.
"People have wondered at our
shortage, but when I put the matter
plainly before the people on the
coast thev saw good reason why we
should have been short. Last year's
I crop was 355,000 tons. In 1899 the
J price of sugar was $90. In 1902 it
had dropped to $67. Right there
was a loss of $8,000,000 to the
country. In the meantime the cost
of labor increased 50 per cent and
the advance iu cash and the loss
caused by the difficulty of getting
work done took four or five million
dollars more. Then came the plague
fire with a loss of two millions
more. This was all in the three
years between 1899 and 1902, and
at the same time we had to meet the
expansion of new business with an
outlay of some fifteen millions,
swelling the grand total of loss and
additional output to about $30,000,-
000. Is it any wonder we were
"All that has stopped, and now
if we get what we expect next year
we will be in fine shane airain.
Many of us are looking for four
cents on our sugar. This will bring
the plantations a return of some
$30,000,000 on the 450,000 tons.
All the plantations ought then to
pay 6 per cent and put by a sinking
fund. There will be a distribution
of from three to four millions of
dollars in dividends, and, besides
this, the plantations will be able to
pay off a great deal of their indebt
edness. "Confidence iu Hawaiian securi
ties is being steadily restored. There
is also a feeling among individuals
that the reciprocity treaty with Cuba
will fail. This will help us out a
great deal. It is the general feeling
that the United State has already
done enough for Cuba.
"The general feeling towards the
islands is much better and people
are beginning to see that the losses
sustained were the fault of the spec
ulating element on the coast rather
than the fault of the islands and the
people here. I made many friends
during my trip and succeeded iu in
creasing confidence iu the islands."

Helliineo Wins Third Unit nud the

New York, Sept. 3. The Re
liance established her supremacy
over the Shamrock III today by
winning the third race of the series
a full three miles ahead.
A seven-knot breeze greeted the I
big boats this morning as they were
towed from their moorings and pre
pared for the start. There was lit
tle expectation that the Shamrock '
would win, but the usual crowd of
boats assembled to witness Upton's
final contest for the cup. The
course was fifteen miles to wind
vvnrcl and return.
The Reliance crossed the starting
line four seconds in the lead and
kept her winning pace to the outer
mark, which she turned ten min
utes ahead of the Shamrock.
On the home run a fog hung over
the course at intervals and marred
the race from the sightseers' stand
point. The Reliance was seen to be t
hauling steadily ahead and finally '
crossed the line with the Shamrock
three miles iu the rear. An ovation
of cheers, bands and steam whistles
greeted the Reliance as she crossed
the finish line. !

HILO DRUG CO., Ltd., Hilo
Oyster Hay, L. L, Sept. 2. -A
sensation was created today when
the public got its first knowledge of
an incident at President Roosevelt's
home during yesterday evening.
An unknown man, well-armed,
tripd three times to pass the guards
about the President's house. On
each occasion the man was stopped
and finally put under arrest. There
is little doubt that the man would
have made an attempt on the life of
the President had he succeeded in
reaching the house.
When examined today it was ap
parent the man is insane. The
guards and officials at the Presi
dent's home have little to say of the
incident beyond admitting the at
tempts to pass the guards. The
President gives the affair little attention.

Answering the report that Chris

the hands of fanatical Turks, the
Sultan has notified the Powers of
his determination to protect all for

The Turkish Government is un
doubtedly doing all that it can to
assure the safety of foreigners. The
danger lies in its lack of control
over its subjects.
