railway passenger agents on tho mainland for the first, second and third best
answers to tho question, "Why Should Hawaii Expect to Become u Greut and
Popular Resort for Homcscekers nnd Touristnf"
The Portland Oregonian says that "the Hawaiian trade bids fair to flourish
nnd grow with n rapidity which tho supporters of the steamship lino to Honolulu
from Portland had hardly expected."
T. E. Gibbon, general coumel of tho San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lnko
Bailway, beforo leaving here for homo tho other day oxpressed the opinion
"that when the San Pedro brenkwatcr is finished Los Angeles business men will
tako up the matter of steamship connection with, Honolulu." He foresaw great
opportunities ahead for tho Hawaiian Islands.
Ocean steam arrivals for tho week have been tho Sonoma from the Colonies,
tho Nippon Maru from the Oriont, the Japanese training ship Anegawa from
Japan, the Siberia from San Francisco, tho Alameda from San Francisco, the

Tho dominant feature ot the situntion
is to bo' found in tho outbreak of an
Insurrection in Cuba which has bocome
serious and tho complications which
havo arisen politically in that country
prove very detrimental to business and
unless a satisfactory solution of the
questions nt issuo is shortly reached
to which end tlio National Government
at ,UMiiuginu is apparently exertinj;
every iuduenco at its command stagnation
may follow nnd the largo sugar interests
of the islands nre bound to bo
heavy sufferers, in which event it is of
courso to on expected that tho crop
will be lessened by the lack of attention
to the fields and by the diminished
supply of labor, oven" if positive destruction
to eano Holds and factories
should bo avoided.
Tlie alarming ndvices from Cuba
havo not failed to oxort a heavy
on tho course of tho market,
inherently strong independent of developments
of a political nature in Cuba
and it is not burprising that speculators
have been induced to enter the
European beet mnrkots while refiners,
nlive to tho gravity of tho situation
have endeavored to provide for future
requirements and transactions havo occurred
latterly at advancing prices
while quotations in London havo responded
to tho general courBo of tho
market and n firm market has prevailed
there but is now slightly oasior as
we judge from telegraphic, advices ns
to the course of European beets within
the last few days.
Tho dumnnd for tho refined product
has been good although now business la
less brisk, judging from latest mail reports
from New York while gonorally
speaking tho future course of the raw

watched with groat care in tho licht
