While the 1915 output of the Ha
waiian Commercial and Sugar Comp
any, amounting to 5G.7S0 tons, was
within loss than 100 tons of tho banner
1910 crop of the plantation, Manager
Frank F. Baldwin, in his report to the
stockholders of tho company, predicts
for the present year a total of 58,000
tons. This will be far ahead of any
previous record, but will still fall
short of the 1917 yield, unless present
signs fail. Manager Baldwin states
that next year's crop had tho best
start any crop has bad at Puunene,
and while it received something of a
set-back by unfavorable weather, still
he is looking forward to it as the ban
ner crop of the plantation.
The annual meeting of the company
was held on Wednesday of this week
in San Francisco. The affairs of the
big plantation are shown to be in
excellently efficient shape. With an
output thus far this season of 14,262
tons, the average per acre has been
7.67 tons of sugar. Last year's ex
traction averaged 97.32 per cent, the
highest yet attained in any previous
year, and was due, Manager Baldwin
asserts to the adoption of the new
Searby shredder, used experimentally
In front of "A" mill. With other
shredders now in use the present ex
traction is 98 percent and a average
of 110 tons is being ground per hour.
The plantation plans to expend $500,
000 during the present year In im
provements, of which $210,000 will be
for enlarging and lining ditches. The
rest of the amount will go for mill Im
provements, a new sugar room, pumps,
new cane cars, tools, live stock,
buildings and 'warehouse, and camp
water supply. For this last -item, $50,
000 will probably be spent, in addition
to a large amount already expended
in a filtering plant by which pure
water may be assured to all of the
$70,000 BONUS PAID.
The plantation paid to its employees
in the form of bonus, last year, $70.
000; and dividends amounting to
$2,000 000, or equal to 25 percent
were paid to shareholders. The total
net earnings of the company for 1915
amounted to $2,804,735.34.

FOSS LOW BIDDER FOR
KIHEI ROAD JOB
J. C. Foss, Jr., was the low bidder
for the construction ef the new sect
ion of the Waiohuli beach lots road
in the Kihei homesteads, when ten
ders were opened by the department
of public works, last Saturday. His
bid was $2905, time 30 days. The only
other tender was that of William Cul
len, whose price was $4050, time 75

owing to the absence of Superintend

Weekly Market Letter.
Honolulu, April 10. 1916.
The demand for Island butter in
pound blocks is good.
Fresh Island eggs seem to tie gettins;
scarcer and while they are s ill cuioted
at 32 c, it is likely that they will ad
vance in price very soon, IHiCi eggs
are plentiful and cheap.
The poultry market at the present
time is better supplied than last week.
Most of the chickens that are being
sent to the market are In pood condi
tion. Island cabbage is scarce and selling
at a premium. Practically all green
vegetables are still selling at abnorm
ally high prices. There is good de
mand for Maui Red and calico beans
but practically none coming in.
There will be more bananas inltono
lulti than ever before during the com
ing week, due to the shortage of trans
portation, and it will pay the shipper
to send only the best fruit. It is un
fortunate that the shortage of trans
portation should come at this' time of
the year when prices for bananas on
the mainland are at their best. It is
hoped that Honolulu people will lend
all the assistance possible to the grow
ers by eating more bananas and less
imported fruit. Everybody can afford
to eat bananas with large bunches sell
ing at 25c to 40c.
There are practically no Island o
ranges in the market. Pineapples are
quite scarce and small. Strawberries
are becoming more plentiful.
There has been little or no change
In the hog market. Island beef is
plentiful at the present time but the
Division has been able to dispose of all
its consignments on short order with
the exception of one or two lots re
ceived in Poor condition.
Several inquiries regarding bees
wax, honey, kukui nuts, kukui nut oil
and Island beans in large quantities
have recently been received. A firm
inJapan has inquired into the possibil
ity of getting dried chili peppers in
ten ton lots. The chili pepper grows
very well in the Islands and in the dry
sections are cured in the sun.
A. T. LONGLEY,
BREEZY WEATHER AT HAIKU .
F. G. Krauss, of the extension di
vision of the Hawaii experiment stat
ion, reports that the recording instru
ments at the Kuiaha sub-station indi
cated a wind velocity of 40 miles an
hour on several occasions during the
past week. No damage is reported, ex
cept tho injury to growing crops,
which is said to be considerable.
The Naalehu (Hawaii) postoflice
was robbed last Friday of $1000 in gold
coin. The money was being transmit
ted to the Hutchinson plantation, and
disappeared from a table in the office.
