Honolulu, Aug. 23.
The sugar atock situation remains
ahout tlte same ns it was a week ago,
and will probably lack startling fea
tures for several weeks more, for the
principal reason, that the last of the
crop .repoita are now .coming jn ami,
a definite idea, of all outputs is to le
had. In other words, there is no
longer any speculation on yields,
the market having settled upon a
firm basis of. actual outturn, and
the profits of each plantation. Sugar
is high, strong and rising,' the mar
ket today ' for raws being very close
to 4.44 in New York, A steady
advance to the end of the . year is
pretty well assured, unless, indeed,
the beet crop effects the world situa
tion 'more than it has at any like
period in the past.
Speculation therefore, turns to
the hext prop,! or winter grinding,
with prospects jind probabilities de
cidedly on the side of higher prices
for stocks all along the line;.
The one , feature of interest on
Oahu has been the persistent effort
to bear Oahu Sugar Company's
stock, which had been going on for
some time, ? On Friday and Satur
day this stock was forced down to
30, but late Saturday and Monday
recovered somewhat- and at this
writing is salable at about 130.50.
Other Oahu stocks remain practical
Holders of stocks in plantations
on the north and west coasts of Ha
waii are much encouraged at present
on account of a heavy downpour of
rain, which started last Friday night
and ended, Sunday, flooding that
whole section of the country. A
near as can be learned here by
wireless the fall averaged seven in
ches at Kuikuihaele, Honokaa, Naa
lehu, Pahala and along the Kona,
Kohaja and ; Hamakua coasts,
generally.' . , '.','.
Hawaiian Commercial, with an
extra dividend of five per cent to be
paid on- September 5, is receiving a
great deal of merited attention, both
here and on the coast. Sales for the
week have been 560 shares at a to
tal valuation of f22.991.875. The
stock today is $41 bid and $41,125
During Ihe week 74 shares of
Wailuku sold at a total valuation of
$12,690. On the street today $175
is bid for this stock, but none is in
sight for anything like that figure.
Haiku is in demand at $149, but
probably cannot be purchased for
less than 155. Paia is $150 bid,
with no stock' in sight. ' Although
practically on 'the same basis, Paia
still seems to be the favorite stock of
these two on the local market.
No sales, of Pioneer VM have been
made in a week, and holders seem
indifferent , about selling. On the
street 1226 is freely bid, but none of
the stock can be had for less than
$230. .Pioneer is now paying twenty
four per cent, and will soon be up
against a proposition of either pay
ing a heavy extra dividend or carry
ing an unusually large balance over
to the next year. Hackfeld & Com
pany are disposed to think that the
directorate will .favor paying over a
fair 'portion of the year's surplus to
the stockholders, withholding mere
ly a reasonable lialance lor emerg
The total sales of stocks last week
amounted to $150,485,375, and
Monday to $8,636.25, or a grand
total of $158,122,625 for the period
indicated. This is regarded as ex
cellent for the season of the year
The report from Pioneer Mill of a
total yield of 27.29K tons ol sugar
has been received with great satis
faction here, the agents, Messrs
Hackfeld & Company, being especial
ly jubilant over the year's results.
The yield is a little less than that of
last year-27,514 tons but this had
been expected, the acreage being
considerably less. Early in the
year the manager of Iioneer gave
his official estimate of the crop as
"more than 25.500 tons." This
was taken toniean very little more
than, that figure and then some.
The estimate lias proved corrects
Pioneer's harvest this year was from
3,500 acres; next year it will lie from
3,750 acres, an increase of 550 acres.
YV. Pfotenhauer, Vice President
of H. Hackfeld & Company and the
head of the plantation department
of that concern, had this to say this
morning for publication in the Maui
We are more than pleased with
the output of Pioneer Mill, the total
of 27,298 tons-speaking well for the'
management of Mr. Weinzheimer.
But if this yenr's crop is satisfactory,
the prospects, for .next should lie
even more" so. ' We are linvinjr a
most excellent season! There has
been a great deal of raiif in the
mountains and we are having no
wind to speak of. The leaves on the
cane are simple perfect, and if con
ditions remain anything they like
now are, Pioneer will show a tan
ner crop next year." .
Mr. Pfotenhaur was a passenger
by the Mauna Kea today for Lahaina
and will spend the remainder of the
week at Pioneer .Mill.' '

Harry A. Baldwin, manager of
the Maui Agricultural Company,
who is in the city with the Maui polo
team, will return home by the Mau
na Kea next Tuesday. While here
he has busied himself with the Ho
nolulu end of the work of rebuild
ing the plantation office and store
at Paia. Most of thedetails are
now complete. .
It has been definitely decided that
the new office building shall be of
reinforced concrete, as near fire
proof as possible and quite hand
some in appearance, both inside and
out. The office will be built on a
site a little lower down than the old
structure, and the store building
willgo higher up, so that they will
oe a saie distance apart, . .
Mr. Baldwin has spent consider-1
able time . planning immense vaults
for books, papers and , other valu-:
ables. This depository will be as!
nearly fire proof as any vault in
Honolulu, and never again will the
company stand in danger of losing
its books and papers by firs.

Baldwin will return to Puunene and

redouble efforts next time. The,
