KEKAHA SUGAR GO.
HAD A GOOD YEAR
Kekaha Sugar Company had a
good year. It paid to its stockhold
ers in dividends iOO,000, 40 per.
cent, on the capitalization, and add
ed $113,01)0.84 to its balance of
profit. Those earnings wore 67 per
cent upon the capital stock and the
surplus fund amounts to $1,17!),
270.20. The report of II. P. Faye, the
manager of Kekaha, which was
presented to the stockholders at the
meeting last week says:
"Gentlemen: I hog to submit
the following report for the year
ending 31st December, 1916:
"The past year has been a very
favorable and profitable year for
"Crop 1916. We commenced har
vesting this crop November 15,
1915, and finished August 3, 1916.
"The total output from 2493
acres of plant and ratoon cane was
17,088,100 tons of sugar at an aver
age polarization of 96,38, manufac
tured from 138, 58 of cane.
"The yield per acre was 6.82
tons of sugar, 55.06 tons of cane,
taking 8.16 tons of cane for one ton
"Crop 1917. I estimate this crop
to be 16,500 tons of sugar. The
fields harvested so far have come up
"The harvesting commenced No
vember 12, and we have manufac
tured and shipped up to date, Feb
ruary 5, 5300 tons of sugar.
"Crop 1918. Will yield about
the same as the present crop ; it is
safe to estimate 16,500 to 17,000
"The weather has been somewhat
wet since December, and it may af
fect the coming ratoons for this
"Factory. We have only made
some minor alterations and im
provements during the year. The
new Dan which we installed last
vear has been a great improvement
"The mill is doing good work,
and we have had an extraction of
96.95 per cent against 95 75 per
cent last year and 93.65 per cent
the vear before.
"Water and power. The water
supply has been very good the
whole year, and we have hardly
needed to operate the makai pumps.
"The power plant has been in
operation steadily the whole year,
furnishing power to the pumps for
the upper fields very satisfactorily
"The property of the company is
in very good condition, and I do net
see any necessity for any specia
improvements to be made.'
A Pioneering Achievement
A splendid idea, imperfectly
carried out, but strikingly effective
nevertheless was the Tan-Pacific
Even the manifest crudities threw
into bold relief the originality of con
ception w i t h which Alexander
Hume Ford entered his work. The
pageant was as groat in possibility
for future development as in the
performance actually given.
No man in Honolulu, single-hand
ed, could have put through to a
nicety of finish a pageant of such
magnitude as Mr. Ford attempted.
For the work he has carried on
without adequate assistance, he is
to be heartily thanked by residents
and tourists alike.
Put it is necessary to recognize
also that more adequate- manage
ment must be worked out for future
pageants. The pioneer hews rough
ly for those of the future to trim
lown and polish. Much of this
trimming and polishing could have
been done for the first pageant, had
the Carnival management been run
more along business lines. The
criticism is not of Mr. Ford, but of
a system which Carnival directors
have repeatedly recognized, repeat
edly pointed out, but from which
neither the community nor the Car
nival company has profited by ex
The greatest drawback to yester
day's parade was in the failure to
have each float designated by name,
so that the tremendous crowds could
see at a glance what was represent
ed. Even those with programs
found difficulty in identifying the
There was a conspicuous lack of
system in handling the street
crowds, resulting in the parade be
ing broken in two parts at King
and Fort streets. Scores of autcs
and other vehicles rushed into the
line and the crowd immediately
swarmed across the entire street
Many visitors critisized the lack
of decoration of horses and trucks,
and even more criticism was levelled
against the fact that on many floats,
in the midst of splendid, dignified
tnbleaus, appeared drivers in over
alls and a variety of other ordinary
laborers' garb. All of this was en
tirely unnecessary, had there been
sufficient assistance for those bear
ing the brunt of the burden.
Just where the lack of system lies
is for the Carnival management to
determine. Outsiders see the result
and regret that this pageant the
greatest in conception, in character,
in symbolism. Honolulu has evei
