OE BOLT UPHELD IN iftpGTON By a decision rendered on April 8, the Judgment of tho Supremo Court of the Territory of Hawaii for defendant In the BUlt of William W. Blerce, Ltd., v. C. J. Hutchlns, trustee, was reversed by the Supreme Court of the United States. Judge Bo Bolt Is thus sustained by the highest court of the nation, as ho gave Judgment for the plaintiff which the Territorial appellate court set aside. It was to enable this caso to bo appealed to Washington that an amendment to the Organic Act, Introduced as a rider to an appropriation bill, was passed by Congress which permitted appeals to be taken from tho Territorial to tho Federal Supreme Court In civil cases Involving not less than J3000 regardless of questions of Federal law. Previously the Territory was In tho same position, relative to its courts. as a State. This, too. Is tho first civil case de cided under the amendment in question. Though the decision In Harrison v. Magoon was the first heard of here, It was announced by cable promptly on Its rendition a few days ago. Tho Blerce v. Hutchlns decision was first made known In Honolulu by the arrival to Jlr. Hutchlns, In yesterday's mall, of a printed copy of it. Sir. Hutchlns says that the matter of moving for rehearing is under consideration. It is felt that tho Washington court did not give a sufficient opportunity for "a thorough presentation of tho case. When counsel reached Washington the court had put Hawaiian cases over for the vacation, but nevertheless set this caso for hearing, at very short notice, on March IS. Mr. Aldrich, who was Solicitor General under the Harrison 'administration, presented the case for tho plaintiff, and A. B. Browne and Alex. Button of Washington and John W. Cath-cart, Wm. R. Castlo and David L. Wlthlngton of Honolulu wero on tho brief for tho defendant. ., ., THE LONDON PARTY OK THEIH VOYAGE The following extracts from a letter by Sirs. Jack London will be read with Interest here: Oakland, Cal., April 15, 1007. Dear Sir: Barring fire, act of God, or earthquake (I don't think that was an act of God), wo expect to sail from Oakland on Friday of this week, which will be tho 19th. That comes pretty near ,to being tho anniversary of the big quake, dQesn't it! We are coming minus nil Interior painting, and with tho castings of our big engine all smashed to smithereens: but we're coming and that's tho main point. We expect to paint down thero and also to have the new engine castings mado In (Honolulu. Of course, you have a foundry there. And as I am In an awful rush, getting ready to go, you -will pardon this brief notice that we are coming. Naturally, I cannot tell you tho day of arrival; but we sail on the 19th, all things being equal except the engine. Pardon tho typewriter, J am rushed to death. Sincerely yours, CHARMIAN P. LONDON.

Tho purchaso money to bo returned with interest added is only $646.40, which shows how grossly inadequate was tho price. SUGAR AND STOCKS. A further advanco in sugar prices has occurred. At 3.73c. a pound, $74,00 a ton, 90 degrco test centrifugals at New York aro 70 conts on tho ton higher than a wcok ago. Tho parity of European beets at $79.00 a ton is nn improvement of 40 cents on tho ton.

Tho decrcaso of stock is 242,753 tons, against a decrease of 211,927 tons last week. Total stocks and niloats togother show a visible of 3,813,579 tons, against 4,081,332 tons last year, or a decrcaso of 207,753 tons. "Tho notable features of tho week como from Cuba, which now nbsorbs all attention both nt homo and abroad. As a result of n discontinuance of work by 18 centrals, and a largo reduction in receipts at shipping ports, tho European markets advanced l$&d. overnight and maintained tho advanco nt tho closo nt Us. 3d. for beet sugar, equal to 3.93c. per lb. for centrifugals. "An activo demand also set iu horo for Cuba sugars and all available parcels were quickly absorbed by refiners for both Immediate and futuro do-livery. "In view of the largo stock of sugar now In Cuban ports it is not to bo expected that any sudden or will follow at once, but a good healthy, steady and firm inarkot with gradual advancing tendency can "The American beet sugar industry will bo tho largest bonefactor by an advancing sugar market throughout 4tho world, as it will receivo tho full benefit of tho riso in raw sugar as well as in refined. "According to tho latest advices it is generally expected that the .European beet sowings will show an incrcaso of 5 per cent over thosu of last year, which would bo moder ate. Tho wcok opened with prices of refined sugars unchanged, basis of 4.00c. less 1 per cent cash for granulated, which was quoted by all "Tho improvement in ravs stimulated tho demand for new contracts, it being realized that tho market waB strong and healthy, and business grow to largo proportions. "An advanco being warranted by tho general position, at tho closo all tho refiners marked up their quotations 10 points, to basis of 4.70c. less 1 per cent, cash for granulated, thus confirming our advices of a month ngo, that prices for refined would not de cline, but would follow tho course of raws upward." There has been a great improvement over tho previous week on tho Honolulu Stock and Bond Exchange. C. BroworN& Co. is 400 buyers on account of tho expected increaso in capital stock. Brewer's reservo fund is probably as much in amount as tho stock, which is ono million dollars, nnd tho surplus is also very large. Hwa is particularly strong at 25.75.

GENERAL REVIEW. Two moro business removals, several having boon reported last week, are to ,bo noted. Tho old firm of IIopp & 0., furniture, has removed from its stores in tho Aloxandcr Young building to tho Tjcwors & Cooke building, King street, whoro it occupies three stories and tho basomont, an cntiro ver tical section of that fiuo block.

Up to tho 24th Inst, tho total of appropriations, passed and ponding, in tho Legislature amounted to $3,028,982.-01, which exceeds the probable, income by $229,098.70. This is aftor paying tho counties their estimated Bhnro of $1,940,000. Tho calculation does not includo soveral bills carrying appropriations yet ponding, nor allowance for next Legislature. J. D. Schuyler, thu oxport onginccr brought from California by tho Legislature to investigato tho construction of tho Nnuaiiu reservoir, 'has strongly recommended tho completion of the work and altered to glvo tho reservoir moro capacity. In addition to its Insurance against a water famino In Honolulu ho shows that tho dam would furnish chenp water power for tho city's electric lights. Even nt tlio great Increaso of cost over original eatlmntes, Mr, Schuyler proves by figures that tho work would bo a profitable investment.
