PINEAPPLE PACK DECREASING
According to J. D. Dole, President Of
the Hawaiian Pineapple Company, in
his annual report, the outlook for the
1916 pineapple pack is 25 percent less
than last year. This is due to much
land having abandoned on arcount of
the fact that tt will no longer produce
the fruit profltly, and because of low
prices of the past two seasons. Th
outlook for the present year is for less
than 1,50000,0 rases agairrst a total
of 1,984,785 cases for last year.
The 1917 pack is likely to be still
less Mr. Dole thinks. ,
To consider the matter of the next
Fourth of July races, an important meet
ing of the Maui Racing Association has
been called for next Tuesday evening,
aa the Wailuku town hall. Some new
plans for holding the annual meet have
been proposed, and it is hoped that the
meeting will be well attended.
