THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, J9I0
Of Commercial Interest
By L. I).
Honolulu, August 80.
The sugar market situation is loss
satisfactory than it appeared a week
ago, the basis for raws having de
clined from 4.50 to 4.4( and beets
falling in alout the same proportion .
The cause of this slump is variously
construed, but it is probably a
grandstand play of the bear influ
ences at the head of the . beet crop
procession which is now coming in
to view. It is the concensus of
opinion in New York, in Europe
and here, however, that the de
tracting influence of lect3 upon the
market this year will le temporary
at most, and that only a remark
able gain in raw prospect can
materially unset calculations already
made. If Centrifugals do not sluiw
an advance of from HO to 40 jntints
prior to November 10 the opinions
of the Itest authorities will have
been seriously at fault.
The most notable change in Maui
stocks during the week has hud to
do. with Pioneer. A week ago yes
terday $230 was asked for this stock,
and last Saturday the market was
$229.50 bid 230 still asked. A
sale of 20 shares was made between
boards late Saturday at the latter
figure. Monday morning the stock
opened very strong at $230 bid and
$232.50 asked. There was no sales
on the board that day, but in the
afternoon a-big jump was made by
the stock on the streets, a block of
00 shares selling at $232.50, after
which the same was bid for more
but holders were demanding $235.
Of the Pioneer situation XV. Pfot
enhauer, of Hackfeld it Company,
who is one of the most conservative
of sugar men, said yesterday after
noon: "No, I do not consider Pio
neer high at present prices. At
$250 the stock would not be higher
than most other stocks on the mar
Vet, and I believe that it will go to
that figure." .
Hawaiian Commercial has re
mained for a week at practically
941.125. The figures at this writing
are $41 bid and $41.25 asked. The
stock is very strong at the former
figure, and there seems to be little
of it on the market -
Maui Agricultural stocks (Paia
and Haiku) remained unchanged,
and will probably be more or less
stationary for some weeks, the crop
being off, and there being nothing in
the future outlook to materially alter
valuations of these stocks.
Some stocks in which Maui folk
are personally interested are quoted
as follows today : Ewa, $33.75 bid
and $34 asked firm ; Hawaiian Su
gar, $42 bid and $42.50 asked sta
tionary; Haiku, $150 bid; McBryde,
$5,875 bid and $6 asked unsteady
Oahu, $31,875 bid and $32.25

Frank Thompson, W. Pfoten

party visiting Ianai last week, have
returned and are quite enthusiastic
over the prospects for the develop

of the opinion that there is already,
water enough available on the island

a comparatively small amount of
tunneling an enormous supply can
be developed. Grazing will con-,
