Of Interest To Taxpayers
(Published by request.)
There is Rrcater increase in the
valuation of property under Pro
hibition than under license. This
means less tax rate because there
is more property to tax.
Georgia, at the end of the first
year of Prohibition, which was a
year o f financial panic, of low
priced cotton and of withdrawal of
thousands of dollars of saloon pro
perty, showed an increase of $4,
1)0,000 in taxable property, most
ly in lh rmal districts. This year
her comptroller general announces
an appreciable reduction in the tax
In North Carolina under Prohi
bition the average annual increase
in property valuation has bten
Maine, from 1900 to 1910, in
creased its taxable property more
than $11,000,000 a year.
In Kansas there has been an in
crease of $120,000,000 every year
for ten years. In 1880 under license
the tax rate was 5.5 mills on the
dollar; in 1914 after thirty-three
years of Prohibition, it has been
reduced to 1.2 mills.
Sugar In 1915.
Some authorities give out the
opinion that, while the Cuban crop
is still in the market, sugar may
be expected to decline somewhat
fijJJu the present figures. Willett
& Gray, however, feel that during
1915 higher figures will prevail.
- They state that "the coming
year, 1915, under continued war,
a s now seems probable, should
show a rising trend of prices from
the present level under the stimu
lating influence of several com
petitors wanting extra supplies of
cane sugar in absence of available
supplies of beet sugar. The crops
of cane sugar, however, promise,
so large as not to warraut exces
sive prices at any time during thtt

''There is no possibility of the
Kauai railroad matter reaching an
agreement at the present time,"
said Governor Pinkham yesterday
with decided finality. "There arc
angles to be considered carefully
and I will not be crowded."
This is the situation of the Ka
uai matter today. The parties in
terested have been hard at work in
the city the past few davs. When
the Governor held his conference
Monday on the land question gener
ally, it was belieyed by some that
the railroad feature could be
brought into discussion, but
Governor Pinkham adroitly slem
med the tide and kept the confer
ence down pat to the main ques
tion. It has been believed that the
land board would likely take up the
railroad question, but it is now in
timated that this body is beginning
to doubt the advisability of step
ping in "where angels fear to
tread." It seems to be generally
understood that the Governor, and
the Governor alone, wishes to han
dle the Kauai situation and this he
will insist on, it is claimed.
The land board held a meeting
yesterday morning at nine o'clock,
all the members with the excep
tion of Willian Chan Wilder of
Honolulu and William II. C.
Campbell ot Hilo being present.
At an upset price of not less
than $4000 Land Commissioner
Tucker was authorized to adver
tise the sale of the school lot in
Kalakaua avenue, opposite the
Manoa Hotel, at public auction.
Applications for leasing several
tracts of land were presented and
laid over awaiting better informa
tion in regard to the properties.
One is for a lease ou about fifteen
acres of rice land in Kapaa, Kauai.
Another was from the Kaeleku
Sugar Company of Hana, Maui,
for the lease of approximately 400
acres of land in that district, and
the third from E. II. Lvuiau for a
lease of something like 800 acres
of grazing land in Halepuaa, Puna,
