WILL BUILD ILL
Two special features appear in
the annual report by C. II. Wil
cox, manager of the Koloa Sugar
Companv, which held its annual
meeting in the office of its agents,
H . Hackfeld & Co., recently
viz: the conditions of the crops
at.d the arrangements for building
the new mill, which is expected to
handle the 1914 sugar crop.
The officers elected at the annual
meeting are, Hans Isenberg,
president; Richard A. Cooke, vice
president: W. Pfotenhauer, trea
surer; F. llainp, secretary; Paul
Isenberg, director., a u d Armin
The report of the outgoing trea
surer, Georg Rodick, shows that
the net profits of the plantation
were $140,205.29, from which S75
000 was paid out in dividends,
making ten percent on the capital
of S750.000. The profit balance
for the year 1912, consequently,
was $74,205.29, which, with the
former balances in hand, make a
total of $387,487.08 cash balance
on hand for 1913.
In his report Manager Wilcox
states that the past year has been
exceedingly unfavorably for grow
ing cane, owing to lack of water,
ah the drouth has been one of the
severest for a long time; in fact,
only one year previous to 1912
shows a less rainfall in this district
of Kauai since 1889, and that was
in 1913. Only last December was
this drouth broken. The Marsh
reservoir was emptied last May,
and remained emptv until Decem
ber. It now contains 944,852,750
gallons, where in 1911 it contained
over two billon gallons, and the
outlook for 1914 crop is not en
ouraging. Reporting on the crop of 1913,
Manager Wilcox savs:
"This crop consists of 974.63
acres of plant cane, 747.19 acres of
first long rattoons, 517.01 acres of
second long rattoons and 4.25. acres
of short rattoons, a total of 1,943.
OS acres. As slated in last year's
report, this crop had a very good
start and was in fine condition last
spring, but owing to a lack of water
a large portion of it practically
stopped growing in May or June.
"Some of the fields, no doubt,
would have yielded better than they
do now, if they had been harvested
last summer, on account of the low
quality of the juice and the large
amount of dead and dried-up cane
at present. The harvesting of this
crop started on the 5th of Novem
ber, This was earlier than usual,
but was on account of the'dry con
dition of the cane. The fields tak-.
ing off so far have fallen below the
estimate of 6,000 tons made last
October, and unless'the quality of
the juice improves we will get very
little over 5,000 tons. We have
manufactured to date 2,238 tons.
"This is our first crop to ship
by the large steamers via Port Al
len and should net us some saving
in shipping expenses over the for
mer method of shipping through
As for the 1914 crop, Mr. Wil
cox states i t hoa a very poor
start on account of the dry weather,
and 327 acres which were plowed
ready for planting had to be aban
doned, water being too scarce to
plant it. Some of the fields first
harvested of tlip 1913crop are being
brought in aa short ratttoons for
1914. Part of tne long rattoons,
sa v s Mr. Wilcox, received no
water until November and Decem
ber, and this late start makes them
in realitv not much more than short
rattoons. A total acreage of 1985.
19 has been planted. Continuing,
Mr. Wilcox says:
"The yield of tnis crop depends
entirely upon weather conditions.
With a verv poor start, the reser
voir less than half full of water
and up heavv rains so far this win
ter, the prospect does not look
bright, but with good rains and
favorable weather the crop will
yield 7,000 tons."
The redigging and concrete lin
ing of the pump tunnels was com
pleted during the past year, and
extra water supplies developed.
Also the dith to take the plaoe of
the Mahaulepu flume was complet
ed. Other improvements were also
made. As for the new mill, Mr.
"The site for the new mill has
been staked out and excavations
for the foundations ate progress
ing. The foundation bolts are ex
pected at any time
