Per S. 8. Australia, San Fzanulsoo, August 11, 1891. The finding of one hundred tins of opium on the premises of the Port Surveyor most certainly has a suspicious look about it, ana many will very naturally condemn that officer on mere suspicion, as was done with former occupants of the same office. The case, how ever, should be thoroughly investi gated by the proper authorities, and the result of the investigation, whatever it may be, should be made public, and justice meted to the guilty parties. Till then, the officer should have the benefit of a suspension of public opinion. A litter from Captain Marston, published elsewhere, will be read with interest. He gives the parti culars of four ships with an aggre gate of 10,700 tons burthen, build ing on the Clyde, which are to be registered under the Hawaiian flag, and engaged in the Hawaiian merchant service. This is a good omen for the future of this coun try, and shows that home and for eign capitalists stand ready to in vest under our flag and to stand by our lumber, sugar and coal trade. It shows that there is no danger of Hawaiian commercial in terests declining with the drop in the price of sugar. Ten thousand tons of steel shipping on the Clyde stocks at one time do not indicate any retrograde movement in our prosperity, but on the contrary it shows that our merchants mean to retain the profitable carrying trade of the couutry. Hurrah for the flag of Hawaii and for the owners and builders of the dqw steel fleet 1 The citizens' petition to the Minister of the Interior unques tionably expresses the just com plaint, not only of the signers but also of nine tenths of the residents of Honolulu. The management has failed to maintain a tram service such as was expected when the franchise was asked for and granted, and such as can reason ably be demanded of it. To say nothing of the condition of the rails on Beretania street which has been undergoing repairs for a year past, no valid excuse can be given of Nuuanu, Fort and Aiakea streets, where the rails have in sections been continually in an un lawful state and dangerous to vehi cles and life, and in the last named street should be torn up. The popu lar protest has been made none too soon, and it should be distinctly understood by the tramway cor poration that unless the abuse of the privileges granted to it, with out cost for right of way, be cor rected, and the mils kept in such a coudition as shull give satisfaction to the public, and as the charter calls for, measures will be taken to execute the penalty terms. Death of Mrs, Antone Rosa. Mrs. Joanna, beloved wife of Hon. Antone Bosa, died at her residence on Nuuanu avenue at 11 o'clock on Wednesday morning, August 13. The deceased lady had been ill for nearly seven months. Her first hus band was a Mr. Ladd, brother of Mrs. J. O. Carter, and by whom 6he had three daughters Helen, Mabel and Emily, who all deeply mourn the loss of a devoted and affectionate mother. She leaves also a mother, Mrs. Abigail K. Drew, and an only brother, Levi Drew. The funeral services will be con ducted at the house, and the proces sion will start for Nuuanu cemetery at 4:30 o'clock this afternoon. An Overdue Vessel, There seems to be but, little hope for uv ew.wj w iuo cbuuuucr fttuaoDia, one left Jaluit, in the Marshall group, 95 days ago for this port. As this is 50 days longer than the longest trip on record the underwriters have concluded that she is resting at the bottom of the Paci fic Ocean. The Pannonia had made a a good cruise, from a business point of view, among the South Sea Islands, and was returning home. -She had on board several missionaries as pas sengers. Captain Londall was one of the most experienced captains in the island-trade, and the only ray of hope is that the schooner was wrecked and that her crew and passengers are on an island out of the track of. ships. -S. F. Examiner. (From our special correspondent.) Sugar, (Continued ) A revised statement has been pre pared in the Internal Revenue Bureau in regard to domestic sugar production, based on the latest returns. Producers estimates are: Sugar, cane, 458,257.200 pounds; beet, 29,210,000 pounds; sor ghum, 2,510,000; maple, 8,000,000; total, 567,977,200. This estimate is con siderably in excess of that of the Treas ury, which is: Beet, 25,000,000; sor ghum, 2.000.000; maple, 8,000,000; total, 500,000,000. Estimating that beet and sorghum sugar will polarize 90 degrees or over, and be entitled to a bounty o2 cents per pound, and that three-fourths of cane sugar will polarize 90 degrees and over, and one-fourth between 80 and 90 degrees, and that all maple will be between 80 and 90 degrees, and the amount of bounty to be paid will be as follow: On cane sugar, $9,549,375; on br-ft sugar, $500,000; 011 sorghum sugar, $40,000; on maple sugar, $L40,000; total, $10,229,375. The Bureau of American Republics has issued carefully prepared statistics of the sugar industry of Cuba for the last ten years, showing the total produc tion of the sugar and molasses in tona to be as follows : 1886, 918 737 ; 1887, 790. 593; 1888,814.510; 1889, 661.680; 1890, 763,558. The exports from all the porta of Cuha of sugar and molasses during 1 he same period has been over 90 per cent to the united States. The balance went in very small proportions to Eng land, France and other European coun tries. The bureau has information that there has just been registered in Glas gow a new commercial undertaking called "The Sugar Trading and Finance Company," with a capital of $250,000 in $50 shares, the object of which is to buy and sell sugar and other produce and to establish agencies in the West Indies for that purpose. Reciprocity With the West In- dies. The new Spanish Reciprocity Treaty and the new treaty with the Republic of San Domingo have been published. Sugar comes in free, as well as molasses, coffee and hides.

Local brewers look for the company to wind up its affairs before long. English capitalists have offered to buy the Rami, McNally company and the J. M. W. Jones company, both of Chicago, for $3,000,000. The companies are among the foremost book publishers of America.

PAINTER! IF YOU WANT A FIRST-CLASS JOB of Painting of any description done, call on the practical Painter. J. L, MEYER onlv. 130 Fort St. P. O. Pa3S7, 2748-ly I Monday, August 17. The S. S. Zealandia brought us some useful things last week; articles needed by every one. Do you have much trouble carving a fowl ? Some people do because they don't know how to go about it, and others who do understand it, haven't the right sort of knife to do it with. Our Eastern buyer sent us some " Jointers " per last steamer that are just the thing for the work. Stick the blade in the fowl and it finds the joints all right without any help from anyone. They are in ivory handles and can be al most given away. Another good thing for the household is the " family glue pot." A handy little thing, no trouble to anyone ; just fill the container with hot water (the glue is already in the glue pot) and before you can say " Scat " the preparation is ready, and you can cement a broken engagement or any thing else. We've something for gro cers too ! Cheese Boxes, nice ones with wire cloth fine enough to exclude anything in the creeping line. Another thing for either grocers or pri vate families. We refer to wooden covers for flour barrels. Bird Cages plenty, now. Brass or painted, cheap or ex pensive; you can get what you want. Our brass ones are made with a sort of false bot tom which prevents the bird escaping when you clean the cage. If you are fond of your bird this is the kind of cage you want. Which do you prefer, plain glasses or those with your ini tial engraved on them ? You can get the initial ones from us as cheap as the plain ones and very much handsomer. We' ve imported a stove sui table to the requirements of restaurant keepers or a large family. It looks as though it would be a good thing for any one who cooks. We prefer the Fischer steel range but it's a-trifle more expensive at first but saves enough fuel in the long run to pay for itself. We can show vou a laro-er o assortment of plated ware than ever before. The lot received .last week is made up of odd designs and are very fair imi tation of the solid goods ; the only difference is in the weight. It's not every one who can de tect it. We have wood spoons too, for the kitchen ; they are not an imitation of anything and their identy is not concealed by platings of anything ; they are just plain wood and espec ially adapted for kitchen use. Another lot of Haviland China has arrived and among the choice pieces are some exquisite Ice Cream and Salad Sets. If you are anxious to be "in the swim you better come now and make your se lection. Haviland is just as cheap as white ware and cer tainly very much handsomer. If you've never used it you have no idea what an improve, ment it makes in the appear ance of your table. B. G.
