M'BRYDE SUGAR GO
10 PAY DIVIDEND
One of the local sensations of
the week has been the conclusion
of the directors of McBryde Sugar
Co. to oay a dividend of fifty cents
a share to common stockholders.
There had been rumors of such a
dividend during the year, but even
those on "the inside" hardly ex
pected it before July or August at
the earliest. The decision to pay
v ow was undoubtedly the immcdi
te result of the continuation 'of
sugar prices above normal, owing
to the wsr in Europe; and the prob
ability that prices will keep up for
a long time to come.
McBryde Sugar Company was
organized in the boom days of the
annexation period, and in the hur
ry and excitement of those times,
mistakes were made in the prelim
inary adjustment o f its affairs.
This was followed by a series of
events which gave its stock an un
promising aspect for years,
The plantation has been, really
and in fact, taken up bodilv and
put upon its feet by the war in
Europe. Had it not been for the
war, is the opinion of many, the
price of sugar would have been
such that McBryde would have
floundered along for years without
showing a profit of a character
that would spell dividends. This
would have been the case, despite
the aid of a powerful agency .
tfjfihly efficient management, loyal
staff and workmen and the most
approved plantation methods.
This is the first dividend paid
by McBryde to its common stock
holders. SILVER WEDDING -GAILY
Mr. and Mrs. Elmhorst, Lihue,
observed their silver wedding last
Tuesday afternoon, May 25, the
affair taking the nature of a very
jolly reception t6 friends at tht
home of Mr. and Mrs. C. Maser.
For the occasion the place was
prettily and appropriately deco-
Jatud and the period of the "cele
bration" abounded in features of a
most pleasant character.
Mr. and Mrs. Elmhorst have es
tablished many sincere friendships
during their long residence here,
and received numerous congratu
lations on the occasion of their
IRE GAME PLAYED
10 13TR INNINGS
The bnseball contest between the
Makawelis and the f. A. C. team
on the grounds of the former Sun
day afternoon resulted strangely
like the game between the same
teams on the same grounds a few
weeks ago. On the former occasion
there was a fast game with the
score tied for a number of innings
to the ninth, when the Japanese
forced a man home, making the
score 3 to 2 in their favor.
In Sunday's gam; the score was
t!ed in the sixth inninsrs and re
mained so through the ninth. The
tenth, eleventh and twelth were
without results, but in the thir
teenth the Japanese got a man over
theplatf, deciding the contest in
their favor, the score being 3 to 2
This result ties the McBrydes
and Japanese for first place, with
the Makawelis next and the Lihues
bringing up a remote rear.
Probably a larger crowd than
usual witnessed the game.
TD BE REGOVERING
William Kealakai, the voung
Hawaiian who shot himself in the
mouth nearly two weeks ago, is up
and walking around at the Lihue
hospital, and the prospects are for
complete recovery. The bullet has
not been removed from the back
of the head, nor will it, unless
trouble starts in of a character to
make such an operation necessary.
The would be suicide was in
considerable pain at one time a few
days ago and, it is said, begged
for poison with which to finish off
the job he had nof completed with
the gun. This was probably, how
ever, the result of a fit of despon
dency. The circumstances of the attempt
at suicide was published in last
Tuesday's paper, Friends of Kea
lakai state that when in employ
ment he was a good worker. As
far as can be learned he was not a
drinker to any considerable extent.
Other physicians of the Islands
have taken an interest iii the case,
most of them having called at the
hospital to note the course oi treat
ment being followed.
