THE GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY. FEB. 27, 1912.
To be Incorporated under the laws of the Territory of Hawaii.
rtj 1 i
PURPOSE OF ORGANIZATION.
This Company is to be organized for the purpose of con
structing and operating a central sugar mill, railroad &c. in the
District of North San Carlos, Philippine -Islands, where con
tracts have been secured with the principal planters, who are at
present grinding their cane with primitive three-roller mills.
By the terms of the contracts, which run for thirty years from
1914, the Mill Company is to receive 40ee of all the sugar pro
duced in payment for hauling cane, manufacturing sugar and
providing containers for same.
LOCATION OF PLANTATIONS.
San Carlos lies on the Northeastern coast of the island of
Negros, which island produces approximately 40 of all the
sugar raised in the Philippines. It is isolated from the rest of
th: island by mountain chains and forms a little community by
itself, a factor which contributes to the favorable labor condi
tions that it enjoys. It produces cane of an excellent quality.
It is favored with a natural harbor, safe at all seasons, near
which the mill is to be located.
PRODUCTION OF SUGAR.
The planters signing the contracts produced sufficient cane
during the 1910-11 season to yield about 7,500 tons of sugar,
with'inodern methods. They have already increased their areas
in cane, and will continue to do so until all is under cultivation.
The yield for 1913-14 should be 12,000 tons of sugar, the min
imum required under the terms of the contract being approx
imately 9,500 tons. As the planters will realize more from
their 60 of 96 sugar turned out by the mill than they at pre
sent receive from the sale of all their low grade sugar, and be
saved from the milling expense as well, those not already par
ties to the contract will be eager to sign, as some of them have
already signified, and the Mill should have no difficulty in se
curing sufficient cane to turn out the 12,000 tons, its initial ca
pacity. Ultimately it is planned to include the entire district
which will produce cane sufficient for a 20,000 ton crop.
MILL AND BUILDING: To fulfill the requirements of the
Company's contracts, it will be necessary to erect a mill
having a daily capacity of 600 tons of cane, with provisions
made to increase to 1,000 tons. This, erected at San
Carlos, will cost about $400,000.00
