SUGAR IS KING There is a Steaflv Advance ID tie Price of Unrefined. DcoT rioiiDC unu; eiunc iqu? ULUI I IUUIIL IIUII uinuu IWJ'- Predlctlon That Five Cents will be Reached-Cuba-Loulslana ' San Francisco Activity. Raw sugar is now at the highest price since 1890. The quotation by the S. S. Mariposa, dated the 19th inst., is. 4 5-8. This is about the same as .was the price of refined a month ago. These are representative quotations of raw .sugar for the years given: 1S90 5 9-1C 1891 3 1-2 1892 3 1-2 1893 2 7-8 1894 2 7-8 1895 3 1896 4 3-8 1897 ' 3 9-32 laaS 4 1-8 1899 4 5-8 ' It is confidently predicted that raw sugar will go to five and above and ii is figured by the closest observers and students of the market that the great er portion of the crop of these Islands will sell at 5 or a trifle better. The world's shortage of sugar is large. rl.ne Louisiana crop is short and will be next season. Cuba is in pre cisely the same condition as Louisiana. The advices are that the Louisiana men who sent lately to Cuba for cane seed received back word that seed was wanted in Cuba -worse than anything else and would be purchased wherever it could be secured and at whatever; price asked. ' - ' ' f ' The beet sugars will not begin' to reach market for fully three months yet. Tne bulletins of the experts give high figures on beet sugars and say that 'mere is every indication of a rap id and heavy advance in the options for delivery in the months to come. Local sugar factors and share hold ers are hghly elated over the news from abroad. It can readily be seen that the advance means enormous ad ditions to the prospective profits that have been calculated upon. Reports from nearly all of the old plantations are of the most encouraging nature and satisfactory progress is being made on the new estates. The planters here have 'been told by correspondents on the mainland that there will be no difficulty aiout renew ing a contract on a favorable basis with the American Sugar Refinery company when the old bargain ends by time expiration. The Advertiser has a copy of the re port of the transactions of the San Francisco Stock and Bond Exchange for the 19th inst. There was marked activity in'Hawaiians." Hawaiian Commercial is firm at $103 and the "Big Five" of the Board, head ed by Mr. Pollitz, is said to have given out the tip that the stock will go to $150. This is the stock that at one time sold for ten cents a share, then at twenty-five cents and that was for a long time steady at $23. It is $23 that is paid in and the capitalization is $10. 000,000. The stock became stable when the control of the property was se cured by Mr. Pollitz for Jas. B. Castle and associates and Mr. Lowrey given the management. Paauhau is $39, with sales on the 19th aggregating no less than 2425 shares. The sales of Hawaiian Commercial on the 19th on the Board and reported to the Board were 915 shares. This was all at $103. with the exception of a single share, which was sold at $103.25. There is considerable life in Hutch inson, which, like Paauhau, is sched uled as a monthly dividend payer. The price of Hutchinson is $32 and 1110 shares changed hands at that figure on the 19th. No sale of Hana is reported. Tt is pictured at $16.75 bid and $17.12 asked. The feature of the stock trading here yesterday was the zig-zag course of Kihei. It ran the gamut from $10, which is $5 above par, to $15. There -sere 11S5 shares sold at $10. One sale at $12.50 was reported and in the af ternoon there was a rally" to $15. All the other securities are steadv. Joe Dillon. The Honolulu man mentioned in the dispatches as a prisoner of the Fili pinos is none other man Joe Dillon, the well-known boatman and barber, a native of Ireland. Dillon came to the Islands in an American warship and left in the same sort of craft. He was aboard the Nipsic during the terrible hurricane experience in the harbor of Apia and arrived soon after in Honolu lu. Dillon, attracted the attention of the late King Kalakaua and found much favor with the monarch. NERO COMING. SAN FRANCISCO, April IS. The Nero, formerly a collier, has been al tered and prepared for deep-sea dredg ing. At present she is lying in Mission bay taking coal preparatory to her de parture for Honolulu at the end or tne week. The Nero will survey for a tele graph cable between Honolulu and Lu- zwn, via Midway island and Guam. OLA A PLANTATION. The most important of the scores of land deals involved in 'the promotion of the new Olaa plantation was successfully .terminated vesterday. The in T v terests of Loebenstein and Wakefield on one side and - Shipman on the other, were reconciled and now there is no further thought of two mills or plantations in the present plans of Messrs. Dillingham, Carter, Thurston and associates. There nvill be one large mill that, will be in operation throughout the year, while the fields of the company will run without in- . itervening land from sea level to an elevation .of 2000 feet. The company bas at present some- thing over 19,000 acres of land and it is likely that some more will be acquired very soon. The prospectus will be ready in a. few days now and it is likely ithat the opening of the stock subscription books will follow close on the publication of the details of the great enterprise. DEWEY METHOD. Head of a Noted School to Visit Honolulu. - It is likely that the next lecturer of the, University Extension course there will be Professor Dewey, of the faculty of rthe University of Chicago. He is Mi authovity- on biology, but ls "if.st known for what is called his "informal school" for children. He shares with Count Leo Tolstoi, the famous Rus sian, a most hearty disregard for the rigid rules of educators. The idea is to appeal directly to the sense of jus tice and the intelligence or common sense of the child. Much of bis teach ing is by object lessons. The school has a manual training department on a small scale. At noon the children are instructed in the preparation of a meal. The scholars are delicately im pressed with their own responsibility for the maintenance of order in the school room. The Dewey method has been subject ed to much criticism. It has attracted the widest attention and there will be the greatest interest in its explanation by the teacher himself. If Professor Dewey does come to Honolulu he will arrive in June next and remain nearly three months. He is coming out to California to lecture and it is local people who are to invite him to come to this place. A consid erable sum towards an expense fund has already been guaranteed. HACK ON BUSINESS. A. B. Wood Returns From the Coast for a Few Days, A. B. Wood returned by the Mari posa. He has been away about a month. He did not get any further than San Francisco this time, but in tends to leave again for the Coast in about ten days. He will then continue right on to the Eastern States. Mr. Wood reports business very act ive in San Francisco. The recent rains throughout the state have done worlds of good. He reached San Francisco the day after the rains had started and from then on the weather was delight ful. Mr. Wood's visit was on pleasure and business combined. The latter was in connection with the firm and was accomplished satisfactorily. Accused. by His Crew. NEW YORK, April 13. It i3 possible that Captain Zach Allen of the ship Benjamin F. Packard, will be arrested on his arrival here from Richmond, Me., where he is visiting. Several of his crew on the last cruise to Hong kong charge cruelty and have made complaint. TO BRING HOME THE BODIES. WASHINGTON, April 15 Secretary Long has instructed the commandant of .the. MnrA TlAnd Navv Yard to pro cure two metallic caskets and send them on the Badger to Apia to receivo the remains of Lieut. Lmsdaie and Ensign Monaghan of the Philadelphia, which will be returned to the United States for burial. STOP AT THE OWL LUNCH WAGON and take home a Hot Chicken TamaJe. HELD BY TAGALOS A Small - American Force Cap- tnreilby Rebels. A LIEUTENANT III COMMAND Ambushed and Fate Unknown- Names All From the Yorktown. Perhaps a Ransom. WASHINGTON, April 19. The Navy Department having requested a correc tion of the portions of Admiral Dew ey's dispatch of yesterday which were not decipherable was today able to fur nish the full text of the dispatch, which is as follows: MANILA, April 18. Secretary Navy, Washington: The Yorktown visited Baler, Luzon, east coast of Luzon, P. I., April a2, for the purpose of rescuing and bringing away the Spanish forces, consisting of eighty soldiers, three of ficers and two priests, which were sur rounded by four hundred insurgents Some of the insurgents armed witn Mauser rifles, as reported by natives, Lieutenant J. C. Gilmore, while mak ing an examination of the mouth of the river in an armed boat, was ambushed, fired uoon and cantured. Fate un known, as insurgents refused to com municate afterward. The following are missine:: The officer previously referred to; Chief Quartermaster W. Walton, Coxswain J. Ellsworth, Gunnersmate, H J. Hygard, Sailmakers Mate Vend- git. Seaman W. H.Rypders and C. W. Woodbury; Apprentices D. W. A. ven vllle, J. Peterson, Ordinary Seamen F Tr;crioc nnri O 11 MnTlonald. Lands- men L. T. Edwards, F. Anderson, J. Dil lon (of Honolulu), and C. A. Morrlssey " DEWEY: The officials of the Navy Depart ment are confident that such of the men of the Yorktown as escaped being killed outright in the first ambuscade will be well treated by the insurgents. The department has sent no instruc tions to Admiral Dewey as to the course he shall pursue, believing that he is fully competent to deal with the situa tion and resting secure in the assur ance that he will spare no efforts to rescue Gilmore and his men if they are a.'ive. As soon as Secretary Long had in formed the President of the contents of Admiral Dewey's message instructions were sent to the Admiral to use every effort to secure the release of Lieuten ant Gilmore and the enlisted men, who are reported to be missing, either by ransom or in exchange for some of the insurgents held by the American for ces. General Otis and Admiral Dewey have about 1,600 Filipino soldiers in their possession. Aguinaldo's well known reputation for feathering his own nest leads to the belief, however, that he will prefer to listen to over tures for the purchase of the freedom of ihe Americans. The President has at his disposal three million dollars for extraordinary expenses and some of this money can be used in ransoming Gilmore and his com panions if they are still alive. Al ready the suggestion has been made that the efforts of Admiral Dewey to effect the release of the captured men may open a way for overtures for peace from Aguinaldo. There has been a great deal of mys tery as to the purpose for which the three million dollars was secured, and it is not beyond the bounds of prob ability that part or all of it may be used to persuade Aguinaldo that his cause is hopeless. With Aguinaldo out of tne way the backbone of the urrising Wni be broken, according to the belief here. It was said today that the suggestion that $3,000,000 be offered to Aguinaldo had been made to the government, but the War Department authorities pooh pooh the idea, although they are ex ceedingly reticent in discussing it.

Three of Iloyt's Plays to be Given Here in May. The public of Honolulu have a rare treat in store for them in the coming of the Hoyt-McKee company the mid dle of tMay, en route to Australia. Mr. Charles Hoyt, whose name as a play wright has stood out prominently be fore the American public for tluo last ten years, has turned out more success es than any other playwright in ex istence. The company will present a Rag Baby," "A Trip ta Chinatown" and "A Stranger in New York," three of the most -successful farces ever pro duced in America. These farces are a combination of burlesque, comic op era, witty sayings, comic songs and dances, and tend to help a person spend an enjoyable evening exclusively in laughter, nothing serious predomina ting in the piece. Mr. Hoyt sent to Australia two years ago his "Trip to Chinatown" company, and 1t scored such a tremendous success there that he and Mr. McKee have overlooked the entire Thespian colony in America, and have selected therefrom one of the best and most expensive organizations for the coming presentation. The company will arrive per steamer Aus- tralia on May 10th. and will give three performances in the week of May 17th. The organization is headed by Harry Conor, one of the most popular light comedians in America. His support la -composed of SanirMarion, Arthur Pace, Frederick Ward, Arline Crater, Made-' line Lack and the McCoy sisters. All told the list numbers about twenty" people. To give the public a rough Idea of what a really expensive organ ization this 1s, it may be said that the investment in taking the company from New York city and back stands the management $10ooo. while $75,000 is tied up in salaries and incidental ex penses. The public of Honolulu should not hesitate to encourage this enter prise, for if the receipts are in keep ing with the expenses, it is more than probable that on the return from Aus tralia, arrangements for another .visit will be made. The company is under the management of Edward G. Cooke. JJC " .'' ' SC PACIFIC CABLE. Bill Soon to Be Introduced the Canadian Commons. in TORONTO, Ont., April 12. A special to the Globe from Otta wa says that within a fortnight a bill will be Introduced in the House of Commons to provide for the laying of a cable con necting Canada with the Aus tralian colonies and providing for the Government supplying funds equivalent to five-eighteenths of the co3t of construc tion as soon as Great Britain signifies its readiness to pro vide a like sum and the Austra lian colonies contribute eight eighteenths of the cost. This action is already assured. The control of the cable is to be vested in a commission to be appointed by the Imperial Gov ernment, each contributing col ony nominating representatives on the commission in propor tion to the amount contributed.
