THE ORGANIZER OF
Payne Trying to Save Money
of Kauai Stockholders
F. N. Payne, the original pro
motor of the Humauma Oil Com
pany, visited Koloa, McBryde,
Kleele, Makaweli and Waimea on
his recent trip. lie came over for the
purpose of getting all the Kauai
stockholders in Humauma to give
their powers of attorney to G. N.
Wilcox, in order that a meeting
may be had at an early date for
the discussion of a plan which he
(Payne) has to present for getting
the property of the company on a
better financial basis.
On account of the death of Mr.
Pfotcnhauer, the departure of Mr.
Klamp and Mr. Hamburg from
the Islands and the absence of
other directors, the company is
practically without resident offi
cers. Election of new officers is
necessary at the very start. By get
ting the proxies of all stockhold
ers on the different islands in the
hands of a few men, Mr. Payne
figures that this reorganization of
the directorate will b e greatly
simplified. J. A. Kennedy, Presi
dent of the I. I. S. N. Co., will
get the proxies at Honolulu for
the island of Oahu.
Humauma is owned in toto in
the Hawaiian Islands, and Kauai
is particularly interested in it for
the reason that one third of the
stock is held on this island. It was
capitalized at $1,000,000, but only
363,000 shares at 50 cents per
share were actually issued, the bal
ance remaining in the treasury.
The company owns in fee simple
800 acres of quite valuable land in
the oil region, and has an expen
sive drilling plant. Efforts so far
to locate oil in piying quantities,
however, have failed, and opera
tions ceased sometime ago. Mr.
Payne has a plan which he thinks
will put the property on a paying
basis, and intends to lav the whole
matter before the stockholders in
the wav indicated above.
Mr. Payne was last here about
four years go. since when he has
been looking after the interests of
the company in California.
