Vol IX No. 3779 Shortage Of Kerosene May Be Clue To Incendiaries STANDARD OIL'S SUPPLY FOUND SHORT A clue has been 'found which mayj lead to the discovery of the party or j parties who get fire to the Kerosene warehouse at Kewalo a short time ago. It has been found that there la a large shortage In the amount of kerosene belonging to the Standard Oil Co.'s stock there, and this, In view of several peculiar facts about the Are, seems to Indicate that the persons who were guilty of the deed had a very definite object In view. Chief of the Fire Department Thurston said today that it had been found that there was a large shortage i in the kerosene. This was now being looked into, and it might furnish a very important clue in the case. He advised the reporter to see Superin tendent of Public Works Holloway. "We have found that there wax a large shortage in the kerosene be-, longing to the Standard Oil Co., which was stored at the warehouse," said Holloway. "We are now having the cases counted so that we can ascer tain Just what the extent or thli shortage is. We know, however, that it is tqo large to be accounted for by any petty thefts, and furthermore there have been none such recently. It can not be accounted for by leak age, as In such case the empty tins are kept on hand for tally purposes. "It is a very significant fact that the fire was started in the room in which the Standard Oil Co.'s kerosene was stored, and furthermore the in cendiary deliberately destroyed the records which were kept by the keep er of the warehouse in anpther room, and which would have shown the bhortage. "It would be possible for an em ploye of one of the concerns which have oil stored in the warehouse, to give an order for the delivery of a certain number of cases, and then sell them to some of the Chinese con cerns which handle oil in large quan tities. In such a case there would be an entry In the books showing such delivery, but now that these are des troyed there is nothing. All we have to go by now In ascertaining the num ter of cases which should be in the warehouse, are ; the statements fur nished us by the four concerns which use the warehouse." It seems furthermore significant that as the Standard Oil Co. will soon have its own warehouses at Iwilel completed, and will after that move A Store you can rely upon Y "OU'IL find this store, , at honest prices is the basil iipon which we do all our business.

" QUARANTINE IS NOT LIKELY TO TROUBLE BIG SHIPS "Honolulu cannot afford to get ex cited over the. quarantine by the Fed eral authorities" said a gentleman who noted the comment on the strict quar antine of the Raleigh. "The quarantine exactions are the result of the somewhat serious condi tion at Aiea a few months ago. This was classed as an epidemic and Hono lulu has to pay the penalty and will have to do the same under like condi tions as long as the United States Marine Hospital service rules the sit uation. "Honolulu is not closed up at the slightest suspicion of serious sick ness. The occasion can be cited of repeated instances where the port has remained open though sporadic cases of plague occurred. It is only after an epidemic that the sixty-day rule is put on. And Honolulu will be subject to this as long as there is a plague bacilli in sight.

Benefit From Rising Prices In view of the fact that the predic tions that sugar would rise are now beginning to come true the Island planters feci considerable satisfaction , that they have still about one-third of the crop of 1907 on their hands to sell. The Sugar Factors figure that they have still on ihe Islands about 65.00U tons, which together with the amount iitld by the independent plantation should make a total of about 75,000 , to 80,000 tons still on hand. It is estimated that there are about 20,000 tons on the way around the Horand that there are about 40,000 '.ons afloat on its way to San Francisco j or on the Tehuantepec route, making a total of 60,000 tons in transit at present. - The totals of the sugar In the Isl ands and that in transit will thus amount to about 120,000 tons, and It is estimated that so far about 230,000 to 240,000 tons of the 1907 crop has been sold. This makes about one third of the crop which will benefit from the raising prices. Another Application! is Made To Pratt For The Property pother application has been made for the purchase of the Queen Emma place up Nuuantf valley. R. M. Isen- berg Is the applicant? He has request ed Land Commission Pratt to allow him a chance to bid for a part or the whole of the property, and the matter will be considered by the Governor and the Land Commissioner. It will be remembered that some time ago a proposal was made to buy the property, but public opinion ap peared to be strongly against it being sold to any private party or firm and the proposition fel through. Unless there has been a change In public sen timent it ia improbable that Mr. Isen- berg's proposition will be favorably acted upon. The Queen Emma property consists cf ten acres, and it appears to be the general idea that this should be turned Into a public park or devoted to some similar public purpose.

It was supposed that all the troubles over these lands had been settlel. Land Commissioner Pratt visited Ka paa recently and had a meeting with the homesteaders and others of that district, at which all the objections were talked over and an understanding reached. The Kapaa troubles have been of but most of them were long standing, apparently due to a misunderstanding. and it was thought that this had been cleared away by the Commissioner's vlHit. From the rumor it would ap- tear either that the old questions have been revived or that new difficulties nave arisen. The plantation wants a renewal of Its lease of the cane land, but It is not proposed to open up cane land. The lots which it is proposed to offer for settlement are to come out of the pine apple land, and so Commissioner Pratt savs he cannot see what objection can l e raised. He stated this morning that he had heard of no' movement to resist the opening up of the land.
