Every Young Man
Can Own A Library
ABRAHAM UN COIN realized the importance of Rood books, but his stock consisted" of
only a half a dozen volumes. Think how much greater arc the opportunities of today.
Five dollars puts you in possession of fifty dollars' worth of the best literature, and
you can pay the balance at the rate of $5 a month. In this way every person who wishes to
keep no with the culture of the times can have access to the world's greatest writers in his
own home. ,

The 3eer That's J5rewed
To Suit; The CGmele
This has been tho week of tho
'smaller stocks", and the ordeals
brought In from tho other Island's will
probably tell tho story or what tho
jniall stocks will do next week.
As Indicated by the 1) u 1 1 e 1 1 n last
Saturday, Mcllryde followed tho ad
anco of Olaa. Beginning the week
.vlth sales nt 3. 87 ',4 It closed by chang
ing hands at about a dollar a share
Higher and holders asked five dollars.
About a thousand shares from San
ranclsco wero taken up by Mcllryde
)ii)crs during the week, and with this
jut of tho way tho elements to weaken
(he market wcro removed.
Olaa continued on the upward move,
ind closed on Friday with 5 bid and
io sales. Tho demand for this stock
and nlbo Mcllryde has been very lively
and will firobithly continue, aK will the
demand for Honokaa that cnino Into
ho market In fair sized blocks at
(18.50 on Friday and may bo tha cen
ter of more nctlvo trading.
Among tho old stnnd by stocks there,
has been comparatively little trading.
A fair number of people arc after Wal
alua nt prices ranging nil the way from
118 to 119. If Walalua goes below
119 It Is usually tho salo on tho part
or somoonovcliangliig his scchrltlcs to
mako a turn. ,
Oahu plantation finished grinding Its
crop on Tuesday night. The lecord Is
14,650 tons of sugar harvested mule
tho most trying labor conditions nuy
plantation has cer faced. Manager
Hull Is entitled to n great deal of credit
for tho manner In which he1 not only
handled his end of tho strike sltua
Ion, but reorganised his force of lab
rcre artcr thostrlko was over. Oahu
vf II probably lino up with tho highest
ivcrago of thoso plantations cmplnjlng
Itlzcn labor In the skilled positions of
tho property. Oahu stock dropped a
little, shading off from 33 tho latter
iart of the week.
Olio or the surprises of tho week has
been the sales of Pioneer nt 185. Only
u few blocks havo come ont at this
flguro, and thcro Is no real good rea-
on why the stock should sell below
18$, except that some men aru like"
sheep. ' "

holders will mecOt'e) Increase the Cap
ital stock of these plantations, the
bonds now having boeri pnld off. There
are many arguing Xai an increase ot
stock on the part of other plantations
whoso bondB arel paid off and whose
stocks aro paying large dividends und
er the present prlco of sugar. One
side of It Is sound ,enough It Is
claimed that thcjproperty Is worth
moro than Is represented In tho cap
ital stock at'p'ar and' tho dividends paid
aro of a size to suggest swollen for
tunes to the outsider. On tho other
hand It should bo romembored that
the prlco of sugar may not bo ns high
three years hence, hut tho stockhold
ers will want tho samo sized dividend
The practical rctmlt will bo that the
difference will bo taken out of the
labor on tho plantation and tho in
crease of the stock will ultimately be
the basis of an argument for cutting
out tho citizen- labor linil putting In
something of the. Oriental stnmp. That
Is tho. way It goes in the major
ity -of cases. Increases or stock are
much like ovcnttially skinning tho hide
or labor In order to cut a ret wntei
melon for Ihu stockholders. That Is
tho danger of It.
v.tors and tho Mutual Telephone f om
puny over tho fee for digging up thi
bt reels has resulted In tho city holuing
to Its right to inspect tho conduits ot
the telephone company and allow Iris
Itself to be charged at the rate of fif
teen cents a fool for laying the police
and fire wires In the telephone con
dulls. There has been much bluff and
bluster associated with tho contro
versy and the compromise, as, it Is
called, is largely on the sldo of the tel
epliono company. The city retain
nothing but tho right of Inspection,
waiving thO'fooi for tho snmu and pay
ing thovcompany for laying city wlret
In city streets. The time is probnbl)
not far distant when this will become
a serious political Issue.
Quotations ri sugar have been vcrj
satisfactory. Tho prlco of ciutrifugals
has advanced to 4.235 cents and heels
have settled down to tho vicinity of
lls.,hich Is a parity of 4,32. This In
dlcates that the price of heclK will not
advance to n flguro that -jvlll forco
largo planting for next season, and tho
centrifugal market Is gaining nil tho
benefits to bo enjoyed from tho beet
shortago of tho'jpresent season. The
Jump to lis. 6d this morning shows
that speculators are much in evidence.
Important conferences on far-reaching
matters have been held by Govern
or Frcor this week with members oi
the Kopubllcan Territorial Committee.
The subject of these confeieiices has
been the amendments to the Organic
Act vilili especial reference to too land
laws. As was announced sonio months
ubu, uiu uuvurnur uses very Kinuiy
to the proposal that none of tho pub
lic lands should be bomeBteaded with
out the proviso that the land shall not
io sold to either corporations or nlleub,
There Is also n quostlon or whelimr
the Legislature should be called in
extra session to approve the proposed
amendments to the Organic Act since
some or these amendments differ from
tho plan passod upon by the House of
1U present atlves nt lis last session
Some believe thore should be an extra
session, and otheis that the scheme Is
sufficiently v. oil shaped up 'to warrant
OoimresH going ahead i at tho 'coming
session an dcompletlng tho woik be
fore next Juno and tho Kull ramir.lgn.
Transiwrtntlon has been in tho fore
ground to n considerable extent, tin
Inrgc local stockholders of the Mat
'son Navigation Company generally
uniting In npproting the plan suggest
td by the II il 1 1 e 1 1 n that tho Matson
people should Immediately order a sec
cud steamer to bundle tho Increasing
traffic of tho lHirt. That something
must bo dono for both passengers and
freight Is obvious from tho lack o"r ac
commodations given tho pnsscngers'oii
tho through lino and the present Inn
Mllty of the freight lines to keep abso
lute schedules. It is stated by local
merchants that although tho Matson
liner Kutcrpiisc was sent to this port
to carry passengers anil rellec the
congestion, tho steamer left three hun
dred tons or rrclght on the Matson
docks that must await the next Matson
boat. It Is also claimed that the Amer
lean Hawaiian boat' scheduled from the
north left thcro later than was origin
ally scheduled. Meanwhile tho Ocean
Ic lino Is hesitating about putting the
Sierra on in place of tho Alameda bo
causo It Is doubtful about tho rrclght
It can get, as tho Oceanic ieoplo dc
not control vo 'much or local rrclght
ns their competitors. What tho situa
tion needs Is n better balancing and
an Increase or .the strictly local pas
sengcr and frelghUflcetB.
One of tile curiosities or the sltua
tlon Is the" manner In which somcTof
tile clear-headed merchants ot tho city
cling to tho suspension or the coast
wise shipping laws although they have
absolutely no guarantee or reasonable
assurance that the through steamers o'
the rorelgn lines will trent Honolulu
passengers, during tho rush season
with any more consideration thanlr
now granted by the, Pacific, Ma'll line

through passengers first and thu

Tho conflict between tho city Rupcr

tho following rovlew of tho sugar mar
ket under dato of September 17:
Our last i (.-port was dated 10th Sep
tember The raw sugar market gulncd con
siderable strength towards the close
of tho week, a decline of ,03c, based
on thu sale on 10th Inst., of an arrived
Java cargo, being more than recovered
In Inter transactions.
Itenners havo shown 'an Incre.iscd
interest in Biigars fur delivery up to
tho middle or November, and In uddl
tlon to the reported business, there
havo been sales or further quantities
of Cubas from store, of Demernras for
October shipment, and of u Java cargo

ing at Us. Gd. c. i, m., or .6tc. above
tho price paid for the arrived cargo.
As regards sugars for urrlvul uftor
the middle of November, refiners aro
showing considerable reserve, and it
may be that they are counting upon
tho possibility of securing lower priced
supplies, fiom the coming Louisiana
ciop, tha( will ll.lo them over until
tho tuw Cuban nop Is mailable. In
this connection It m.i bu noted that
In Novembcr-Dqccmber, 1907, about
2G.000 tons raw'R worn transferred from
New Orleans to New Ynil; and nbout
14 000 tons In Nou'iubor-Deccniber,
It must be ndmltted that tho market
osltlon us regards nearby supplies of
cane sugnr Is a strong one, the result
principally of the great falling off In
shipments of Jnvas to the U. S. ports.

strong and prices for nil deliveries are
