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
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 feature of the stock trading here
yesterday was the zig-zag course of

at $12.50 was reported and in the af

the other securities are steadv.
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.

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
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.
Head of a Noted School to Visit
- 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
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.

A. B. Wood returned by the Mari

month. He did not get any further
than San Francisco this time, but 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

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
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
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
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.
