THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1916,
WILLETT 8 GRAY
ON SUGAR MARKET
Willett & Gray, the New York
sugar authorities, have the follow
ing to sav in their last letter re
Sales of raw sugar at New York
during the week ending February
3, amounted to obout 465.000 hags
for February and March delivery.
O.i that date stocks in the United
States and Cuba together wire
299.557 tons, against 230.076 tons
last week and 281,401 tons h st
year, an incrtHse of 18,156 tens
from last year.
Buyers were more persistent
Receipts at shipping ports in
Cuba are rapidlv increasing, but
the difficulty of transportation at
reasonable or even high rates of
freight keeps the sugar in Cuba,
where it is not wanted and pre
vents its rapid transfer to the
United States, where it is wanted.
Values in the United States are
likely to remain steady and firm
until some supplies accumulate in
the United States.
San Domingos and other full
duty paying sugars have been
quite active this week, about 7,000
tons having been sold to American
and Canadian refiners at 3?4 to 3
Freight Rates Pretty Stiff.
Freight from Cuba to New York
continues nominally at 50c per 100
lbs., but in instances 53c to 55c
has been paid.
The figures of the receipts for
the week continue to increase, as
is onlv to be expected with a crop
of over 3,000,000 tons to be made,
those for the week ending January
21 being 145,347 tons, compared
with 89.000 tons last year.F.xports
reflect the large sales of raws late
ly, and are more liberal, being 83,
663 tons total, of which amount
22.419 tons are for Europe and
the balance, 61,244 tons, to the
United States Atlantic Ports, and
which will allow United States re
finers to catch upsomwhat on their
very much depleted stocks.
A few weeks of liberal exports
would place refiners in a more in
dependent position as regards the
market. Stocks in Cuba continue
to increase, being 207,972 tons on
January 31, and on which date
there were 169 Centrals grinding,
against 160 last year and 163 in
1914 The visible production to
January 29 is 503.202 tons, com
pared with 292,676 tons and 465,
191 tons to the corresponding dates
for the two preceding years. The
weather during the week has been
most favorable for harvesting.
Labor Troubles Again.
The change of the week has been
an advance bv all refiners to 6c less

It is extremely difficult to get
an exact idea of how much Granu
lated for export has been sold for

ticulars of export sales are with
held, but we can state as approxi
matelv correct that 150,000 tons
of refined sugar is booked to be

slightly above 50,000 tons has
been shipped up to the end of

THE PICTURED ROCKS
By J. M. LyJgale
This, perhaps, is the chance of
a life time to sec these interesting
relics of prehistoric Hawaii. Ke-
oneloa is a beach, a couple of miles
or so. east of the Koloa landing,
where on a sand stone floor, just
awash, rude figures have been cut
in great numbers, constituting a
sort of picture gallery or exhibi
tion of the very crude ideas of art
of some long vanished stage of
Most of these rude pictures evi
dently antedate all knowledge of
civilization, while others, evident
ly more recent show some contact
with the outside world.
These pictures, exhibited along
a stretch of 150 or 200 feet are
ordinarily covered deep by over
lying sand, with only now and
then a fleeting and very partial
revelation, but thanks to the great
storms of recent weeks the whole
beach has been swept cle-n and
the sank banks carried far away to
other regions. While this sand is
absent the pictures are on exhibi
tion but how long this will be no
one can say.
Being informed of the opportune
occasion the Bishop Museum sent
a special agent down and he made
arrangement to have one of the
pictures removed bodily, to be add
ed to the Museum exhibition, A
slab 3 feet square or so and 8 or
10 inches thick was drilled out
and split off of the solid ledge and
transported mostly on the shoul
ders of men over the rough trail
to the Koloa landing. What most
ly impressed these men was not
the wondsr of the inscription but
the Weight of it.
A t some unguarded moment
when no one was watching the
treasure some ambitious "Smart
Alec" of the "Bill Stumps" class
etched his initials C. T. K. on the
background and thus sought to dis
credit the whole affair. This will
have to be removed, lest a future
age should fail to discriminate be
tween an ancient artist and a mod
ern "Smart Alec".
Local students of art have net
yet determined to what school
these pictures belong. Is is sug
gested that most of them have a
very cubist look.
