Redemptions Will Throw

On the two tlnv.-, September 30,
and October 1. 402,500' of money
will have been thrown upoiUho

. Kahuku will retire $75,000 of its
total issue of $'206,000 of sis per
cents on September 30.
Paia will retire $112,500. being

At a meeting of the directors of
Hawaiian Commercial it Sugar Co.
it was decided to retire $200,000 of
its bonds, making a retirement of
$225,000 for this year, $25,000
having been redeemed on April 1.
This will reduce the outstanding
six percents of the company to
$250,000. The original issue was
half a million.
John WaWhouso, who has
charge of the redemption business
in Alexander it Baldwin's ollice,
Baid this morning:
"We are now willing to give
holders of these bonds that are to
be redeemed par value "lor them
plus accrued interest at date of
"No, I do not think there is any
great degree of relunctanco on the
part of holders of the bonds to cash
them before the dates of redemp
tion for the sake of the interest.
Of course some estates will havo'a
little difliculty in finding ready
reinvestments for the money, yet
there is a considerable advantage
probably to be gained by those who
cash their bonds now.
"You see the throwing of $1G2,
500 cash into the market by the
due dates of the bonds will very
much ease up the money situation.
As the capital must be reinvested
in some way, there will bo a better
chance a't the choicer securities
now than when that largo amount
has been placed in seeking position.
It would seem to be good business
to reinvest now before all this
money is turned loose."
Payments are being made by lot
and some by those elected have
been heard to talk as if the case
were not the best of fortune. Six
per cent bonds of giltedged pro
perties are becoming as scarce as
hen's teeth, so no wonder if holders
should like to enjoy the usufruct
for two months longer. Hawaiian
