THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1910
li . ill
Of Commercial Interest 1
' Honolulu, Sept. 20.
A cablegram received by Alex
ander & Baldwin yesterday from
New York gave information of a
sharp decline in tbe market for
raws, tbe drop lemg from a solid
basis of 4.36 to one of 4.I10 asked
witb no offers reported for stocks
already on band. Tbe cause of tbe
slump is given as tbe unexpected
and rather remarkable turn in tbe
prospects for European Inlets, it be
ing now estimated that tbe outturn
will reach tbe enormous total of
7,205,000 long tons. It is taken
for granted here that tbe favorable
weather conditions in Eurojc during
the summer have resulted in more
substantial benefit to tbe growing
crop than the official reports sent
out would make it appear.
That the effect of the reported
improvement in the beet situation
should lie so sharp and pronounced
is an additional surprise; and may
result in some important reforming
of estimates as to futures. Seven
million long tons of sugar is an im
mense lot to lie thrown upon the
market in a short per od of time,
and would seem to be quite a dash
of cold water upon the hopes of
those anticipating five-cent sugar
llaw sugar on this date last year
was 4.21, or only nine points below
the market (weak) today. The
highest point reached last year was
on November 11, when the quota
tion was 4. 45. Add rine points to
4.45 and you have 4,53 as tbe
maximum to be reached, based up
on tbe experience of last year.
Surely the outlook is not so en
couraging iib it has been, but the
change is probably as great a sur
prise in the big markets of the world
as it is here. Officially, the New
York quotation is still 4.36, but as
no sales have been made lately at
that and "raws are offered at much
leas there is small comfort in the
figures on paper.
The market for all stocks has
been weak for several days. There
has been some trading,- but the
beafs ave had the best of tbe situa
tion; and in view of the discourag
ing sugar news recited above it
seems likely that the depressing will
have continuance indefinitely.
Money is unusually easy, however,
and the least glow upon the sugar
horizon would tend to stimulate
activity in stocks.
During the week there were sales
of 390 shares Hawaiian Commercial
at a total of 815,600 or $40 per
share. Tbe stock has stood firmly
around that figure, sometimes shad
ing it slightly and then pulling
above a verr little. At this writing
shares may be purchased for $40,125
but it is doubtful that more than
$39,875 could be realized on a forced
sale. So far as Honolulu is con-
fprnprf. Hawaiian Commercial is
very firm and will not likely change
much for some tiwfe to come; and
the situation at San Francisco seems
to be about the same
On Thursday there were three
sales of Haiku at $152.50, tbe
blocks being 20,20 and 10 shares
respectively ; and the total value of
tli sales $7,625. For the stock
$152.50 is still asked and $150 bid
The sales noted were rather above
the market. Paia is not quoted to
day, but its basis is tieihiips nearer
that of Haiku than in months past
$156 bid and $152.50 asked
On Friday 25 shares Wailuku
Jiold at $185, the total of the trans
faction beiiiK $4,625. This stock
would probably find ready sale to
dav at tbe same, but none of it is
offering at present on the street.
Pioneer has been on tbe down
grade for Beveral days, and is today
22G bid and $230 asked. Tbe
cause of this slump is the now oiei
hostility of leading memlxW of tbe
directorate to any proposal of extra
dividends at tbe end .of the year
For reasons which are not clear,
- - - - -
they wish to carry Pioneer's very
large balance over into next year,
and, having a control, they are
fully able to do so. The truth of
tbe matter is that Pioneer is begin
ning to bulge too much, and a
stock-dividend antidote may yet
have to le resorted to as tbe liest
solution ofits problem.
WEATHER ON OAHU.
Sunday afternoon a heavy rain
storm broke Aver the central part
of Oahn, the heaviest fall lieing at
Wahiawa and on the Leilehua
plains, and from there extending
over Oahu and Ewa plantations and
the city. The average precipita
tion was one inch. Waialua proved,
the exception, coming in for very
little of tbe rain. About noon
Monday , heavy showers started in
again, covering practically the whole
of Oahu and keeping up well into
the night. Much 'good has been
done by this period of rain, as it
follows in acceptable time after tbe
downpour of a few weeks ago.
L. L. McCandless, Democratic
candidate for the Congressional bil
let, is a passenger in the Mauna
Kea today for Hilo, where he goes
to be , present at tbe Democratic
county convention. After shaping
up the county campaign to suit
him, he will make a whirlwind
tour of the north coast and then
proceed to Maui. His campaign
n both islands will be even more
strenuous than two years ago, his
stand lieing particularly taken on
the anti-immigration plank of the
Democratic party's platform.
Charles K. Notley, the Home
Rule Hominee for the same office, is
a fellow passenger with McCandless.
He will get off at McGregor's and
will probably reach Wailuku before
this is published.
Prince Kubio's plans in regard
to Maui are still a bit indefinite.
He will go first to Hawaii later on
and his tour of Maui will probably
Ik? late in the campaign' and very
brief at that.
