OUR SAN FRANCISCO LETTER.
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.)
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,

The S. S. Zealandia brought
us some useful things last
week; articles needed by every
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
We've something for gro
cers too ! Cheese Boxes, nice

Which do you prefer, plain
glasses or those with your ini

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
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
We have wood spoons too,
for the kitchen ; they are not
an imitation of anything and
their identy is not concealed

Another lot of Haviland
China has arrived and among
the choice pieces are some
exquisite Ice Cream and Salad
