A special meeting of the stock
holders of the McBrpdc Sugar Co.
has been called for Noneinber 11
in Honolulu, at which the common
stock holders will be asked to hand
over one-fifth of their stock in or
der that a dividend of 7 per, cent
may be paid in the near future to
the preferred stockholders.
The stockholders will also be
asked whether or not the McBryde
Sugar Company shall purchase the
stock of the Kauai Fruit & Land
Co,, which is covered by options.
Another question to be submit
ted will be that of taking up the
note foi $142,972. 96 given bv Mc
Brvde Sugar Co. to Alexander &
Baldwin January 2, 1914. This
note is not due in two years, but
the agents hardly see the wisdom
of carrying it along when they
have the money with which to pay
After the common stock holders
have "dug up" their proportions
of stock, the agents will be able to
, pay themselves the note in ques
tion in advance, make the proper
sinking fund payments, pay pre
ferred stock dividends for 1913
and 1914 nnd carry over a small
balance with the Agents.

cut Kauai down to one senator
