Blood oranges ore sometimes artificially produced by Injecting a few dropNs of claret through a small aperture in the rind. The lock step has been abolished at oing bing prison, and now the prison ers are marched about In their com' panics In double file. A Japanese Christian minister, writ Ing of the divorces In Japan durng a recent year, says there were 358,38a marriages and 116,775 divorces. The Danish West Indies have issued a new stamp, of a new desien. and dif fering only slightly from the regular Issue of Denmark. The color is green. A large .department store in New York has what is termed an "Automobile onnex," where vehicles are shown, and an Otto gas engine belted to o dynamo serves to charge vehicles which may be brought to the annex for that purpose. The winter and early spring are usually considered the best months to visit Sicily, but a German author declares thnt Taormina and Aetna are really at their best In May, June and July. A plague of toads has descended on seeral places In the vicinity of New York' but Hawthorne aim Paterson, N. J., are the most afllicted, or say the most about it. A lawyer who wheels between his home and office In the two places respectively says that he kills thousands of them every morning. The council is considering what best can be done to mitigate the evil. A collection of postal cards is easier to make than one of stamp, for One Is that postal cards date back 30 years, while stamps were issued as early as 1640. Another .reason is that there is generally but one kind of postal card in each issue, whereas there is hardly ever less than ten stamps in a series. Then again, there have been very few changes in postal cards as compared with stamps. The Idea that moss grows thickest on the north or east side of trees seems to have been disproved. A French botanist, Leon Bedel, now concludes that mosses prefer the parts of" the tree that retain most moisture, being thus more abundant on rough or cracked parts, on the upper part of a branch or Inclined trunk, on knots or bosses, at the fork of branches and at the base of the trunk. Take War Kama. Tho Russian peasants are beginning to name their children after the oft-mentioned towns In the seat of war. The name Arthur was very rare up to the present year; now It is all the rage. One I child was Daputed Vladivostok, another Retvlzan, and so on. HAWAIIAN GAZETTE, TUESDAY, MAY a, 1903. -SEMI-WEEKLY, COMMERCIAL BY DANIEL LOOAN. Sugar declined nt New York n slindo over one tenth of a xent in tho week, to 4.(115 cents. Tlint there is nny further decline itiMcnd of tho expected recovery toward tlip five-cent mnrlc li disappointing, hut our sugar met ore Mcadfnt in tho opinion tlint tlio downward trend cannot much longer con tinilc. They attribute the prcent condition, not only to Kuropoau speculation, but to the heavy stocking-up nt New York early year and contracting In advance for Cubnn deliveries. The simultaneous arrival of eighteen cargoes there wai alono n strong brncer to tlio Independence of the refiners. It is figured upon tho statistical position, however, that depressed prices can only bo temporary, ifesldes tlio large shortage this year the estimates for next year aro anything but indicative of a material change in tho situation beforo 1007. Cuba will npt yield n very great increase, and Lieut estimates European beet for an excess of but 12 per cent. Thus fnr tho ratio of world's sugar consumption shows but slight diminution from tho cause of higher prices. Though tho record of Honolulu Stock nnd Bond Exchango sales for tho woek Is small, it Is noteworthy that prices nro well maintained ns compared with any '"previous time this year. A goodly dividend list was posted yesterday. THE WEEK'S TRANSACTIONS.

At midnight of Wednesday tho regular session of tho Legislature of 1905 adjourned, having tho record number of 103 now laws to its credit. Somo difficult problems wero hnndled and a fair proportion solvod, and many financial measures wero passed though some failed in tho cruciblo of tho nssemblod wisdom. An net to establish a form of county government is to ho immediately brought to a judicial test of its validity, at tho instanco of tho Honolulu Civic rcderation. Secretary A. L. C. Atkinson has gone to Now York with tho purpose of having tho bonded indebtedness outstanding from tho Republic-of Hawaii rofunded. When tho United Stntcs annexed tho Mnnds it assumed $4,000,000 of the Republic's debt, but this loft a remnant of about $800,000 to bo redeemed by tho Territory. As this old debt benrs six por cent interest, whilo tho Territory has floated two loans nt 4 1-2 and 4 1-4, respectively, tho bonds fetching a small premium at that, it has been doomed wise by tlio administration to essay this refunding scheme. Tho amount of tho now issue contemplated is $700,000. Ono of tho most grateful measures tho Lcgislaturo enacted, so far as Honolulu is concerned, was to placo tho matter of tho speed of tho Rapid Transit cars in tho discretion of tho Governor, advised by tho Superintendent of Public Works, ns tho schedules and trnnsfor connections had been badly disarranged through proceedings instituted by tho Attorney General to enforco tho speed provisions of tho company's franchise to tho strict letter.

YOUNG ACQUIRES MOANA HOTEL CONTROL (From Sundays Advertiser) Alexander Young has acquired a controlling interest in the Moana Hotel, Waikiki, which makes him the supreme head of two of the three first-class hotels of Honolulu. tf Mr. Young was questioned last night regarding an article in aft evening paper, which represented that he was acuiring the honda of the Moana Hotel Co., "with a view to ultimately taking the hotel property itself." The introductory sentence read thus: "Rumor has it that Alexander Young is making an effort to gain control of the Moana Hotel, to conduct it in connection with the Alexander. Young Hotel." 1 -. Answering the Advertiser's inquiry, after excusing himself a minute to read the article referred to, Mr. Young said: ' "Yes, the article is partly correct. I have acquired a majority; of the Moana bonds and will control the manement of the hotel, "An endeavor will be made to place the hotel business in this town upon a satisfactory footing, without cinching the public. "We shall try to get back a good dollar for whatever is put into the business. "The Mdana will not be run exactly in conjunction with the Young," said Mr. Young in reply to a question. "There will be some mutual relations of management between the two, to serve the interests and good pleasure of the guests. Some may desire a change from town to the beach and contrariwise, in which cases arrangements to suit them can be made with greater facility than if Uhe two establishments had separate interests. "Yes, this deal will release! my private residence at the beach" from use as an annex of the Alexander Young Hotel, I will either rent it or sell it, as I do not need it any more." Lately the property of the Moana Hotel Co. was sold under foreclosure at the suit of the bondholders, the Hawaiian Trust Co., as trustee, bidding it in at a figure far below the bonded debt. W. C. Peacock, the largest bondholder, has since been operating the Moana with A. Hertsche as manager. Following a long period o depression in the hotel business, and just when th)e foreclosure proceedings were coming to a head, the Moana began to share with the other city hotels a brisk revival of custom from the incoming of a somewhat steady stream of tourist travel. Lately the Moana has been, seemingly, prosperous.
