KIHEI COMPANY DECIDES TO
(The Kihci deal was approved by
the stockholders at yesterday's
meeting, and will now be carried
through. Over foui-fifths of the
stock was represented attho nicety
ing, and there was practically no
opposition to the plnn, which
Chairman II.' P. Baldwin discussed
"Kihei has been a great disap
pointment to us all. It has been
a great disappointment to mc. I
have struggled long to make it pay
and I am among the heaviest losers
in having to abandon the planta
tion. It is a thorn in my llesh to
think that so many have lost in
this venture. Every other thing 1
have attempted in the sugar busi
ness is a success. We had wrong
information, nt least I had, regard
ing the cost oLpumping with the
high lift pumps and the expense
was greater thr.n we had, antici
pated. " think now that it would be bet
ter to sell to some already existing
largo plantation, . which perhaps
can do something with it. While
we are all going to lose heavily by
this, yet I think it is tho best thing
to do and I think that there is a
good prospect now of being able to
put through the deal. You all
know who the prospective buyers
are, but 1 will not announco them
as complications may. arise. There
has been some little complication
already but I think now that tho
negotiations can bo put through
and the company receive -$500,000
net for the stockholders."
Tho formal agreement was read
hy J. P. Cooke, and was as follows:
"Whereas,, The Kihei Planta
tion Company, Limited, has not
sinco'its commencement produced
s,ugar at a profit; and
"Whereas, There is no present
piospect of a change in this re
spect; and 7" j
