.THE GARDEN11. ISLAND, TUESDAY, APRIL, 28, 1614
James A. Kennedy, president of
the I. I. S. N. Co., was beiorc the
Public Utilities Commission a few
days ago to tell of the business and
affairs of his shipping corporarion.
He gave nn interesting outline of
the difficulties experienced by the
company in the past several years,
and an insight into its plans at
present for the future.
It was not until annexation,
said Mr. Kennedy, that the two
steamship lines then in operation
among the islands became subject
to governmental requirments. This
brought about better accommoda
tions and better equipment, inclu
ding the employment of more ca
pable men. and in 1S99 the com
panies found it necessary to raise
their freight rates in order to make
expenses and at the same time
gain a profit. Mr. Kennedy said
that, prior I o annexation, 10 per
cent of the freight carried bv the
Inter-Island steamers was sugar
for at this time the bulk of the
cane product was carried from the
other islands to Honolulu and then
transhipped to the mainland. At
the time of the amalgamation of
the Wilder Steamship Company
and the Inter-Island, all freight
rates were reduced, Xir. Kennedy
said, and then stated that, within
liis time, there has been no raise
in freight rates. A material reduc
tion in overhead expenses, due to
the amalgamation, made this re
duction possible, he said.
In speaking of the shipping of
freight and the present rates there
on, Mr. Kennedy said that the
company always has experienced
considerable trouble in getting
shippers to pack their merchandise
economically, stating that space is
the capital of the company, but
the shippers do not seem to rea
Except for certain preference
cabins on certain steamers, Mr.
Kennedy said that the first class
fair schedule of the company has
remained unchanged since the
passing of the monarchy. Better
accommodations which were re
quired by law, he said, caused the
"deck" fares to. be increased 50
cents following annexation, h e
said. Asked regarding labor costs,
Mr. Kennedy stated that in 1913
the company paid more than
S746.500 as ship's wages, an ave
rage of $62,000 a month.
