a great success. i he mom tiers of
the Fair Committee, wish to than
all those woo helped in any way to
make the fair the success that it
was. The amount realized was be
yond all expectations. After paying
expenses, there was over $2,500
Those who visited the fair found a
pleasant surprise. There were four
teen spacious booths around a danc
ing pavilion 4S by 48. The decora
tions of greenery, flags and bunting
with electric lights in the evening,
gave the whole affair a city appear
ance. The booths were filled with
rare bargains, many of which were
donations oeldom seen at fairs. A
glance at the flower booth showed
that years of care had been given to
some of the ferns and hanging bas
kets. The number of dresses in the
Dry ' Goods Booth showed days of
patient toil and the Fancy Work
Booth held one spellbound, as some
of the embroidered butterflies seemed
to be just resting for the night. In
each booth one could note such dona
tions which brought in a lot of money
and showed months of energy and
care. Even the weather seemed a
donation too, as it rained all the week
up . to Saturday morning and then
cleared beautifully for the two days
needed for the Fair, beginning again
late Sunday night after the lights
The following are the booths and
amounts clear of expenses:

While the above committeos worked
very hard, the success of the Fair
was also due to the many kind
friends of Kauai and Honolulu who
gave their support in many ways.
A NOVEL ENTERPRISE
A new departure in Plantation en
gineering is,,being tried out by the
Laupahoehoe Sugar Co. on the Hilo
Owing to several phenomenally dry
years in succession they have teen
very much handicapped for lack cf
water for fluming, as well as for mill
purposes. This has delayed the
harvesting of the crops, which in the
meantime have deteriorated to such
an extent that tho losses have run
into large figures. As apparently
this state of things has como to stay,
they have been casting about for some
means of obviating the difficulty.
As the whole plantation is a com
paratively narrow strip of country
lying closo along the sea cojst, the
suggestion was made "why 'not use
sea water; that will flume cane Just
as well as mountain water, and be
just as good for ordinary mill pur
Of course this would involve lifting
it to the elevation of the flume, but
this is a simple matter of pumps,
pipes, and expense.
As an emergency proposition, large
ly of an Insurance kind, to be used
only when necessary, . the enterprise
is being undertaken. The bottom of
Kaawa-Lii valley, at the sea, has been
chosen as the site of the pumping
station, and from there a pipe will be
laid to the flume-line elevation of
some 800 feet. In any period of dry
weather, when the water runs low,
this pump will reinforce it with some
two million gallons of water.
In putting in the sump, or pond,
from which the water is to be drawn,
it is found that there is a generous
supply of fresh water available so
that sea water will probably never
have to be used.
In ordinary normal years, such as
there used to be, this emergency rem
edy will not need to be employed, and
will cost nothing beyond Interest and
depreciation, and it will be Invaluable
as an insurance investment.
SUGAR LEADERS LEAVE FOR
COAST TO STUDY
Thorough investigation of the af
fairs of the Crockett refinery, 80 per
cent of thevstock of which Is held by
local sugar men, will be made by E.
Faxon Bishop, John Waterhouse, E.
D. Tenney, A. W. T. Bottomley and T.
Clive Daviea, who departed on tho
Maui Wednesday for the mainland.
Tie men represent tho Hawaiian Sug
ar Planters' Association and the sugar
interests here generally and will pro
bably remain on the coast until early
in January, perhaps longer. The
drop of sugar prices has brought up
problems in connection with tho re
finery which call for careful study
and the men will go Into every angle.

EUROPE WILL BUY SUGAR WHEN
MARKET IS SETTLED
(From Facts About Sugar.)
A large export demand for sugar is
awaiting a settlement of market cond
itions here, according to one of the
best posted men on the export situa
tion, who this week voiced the opinion
that the only thing that was holding
continually declining American sugar
Europe Anxious to Buy
"Europe believes sugar prices have
gone far enough down to make pur
chasing attractive," said this author
ity, "and Europe is in need of sugar.
However, she is not going to buy as
long as there is a decline every day
and the sugar will almost certainly
have depreciated in value by the time
they reach their destinations.
"I am firmly of the opinion that Eu
rope is only waiting for this market to
show some signs of stability to start
"The situation here has been over
done by the sugar men themselves.
When the market was up they were
too bullish, and now they have be
come too bearish. There is not
going to be so much sugar as some
persons think next year; for one thing v
if this threatened, the Cubans will
not cut as much cane and will curtail
their production. It may, be Quits
on the cards that a shortage should
be felt at some time next year.
"The opinion In Europe is , that
sugars are being sold here below their
real value. As a proof of this the
Java market has stiffened consider
ably and sugar has gone up a cent
there in the last few days. The fact
of the matter la that Java has heavily
oversold her production and is finding
it difficult to make deliveries. Brit
ish India has been buying in Java and
the efforts to. comply with those con
tracts have had a strengthening
England Tired of Control
"Another possible sourco of outlet
for the temporary abunclncn of sugar
in this market is the agitation that is
going on in England against prolong
ing the activities of "the Royal Com
mission. The people in that country
are becoming irritated over( their su
gar being rationed for so long and a
big movement In favor of abolishing
the commission and re-establishing
a free market is under way, with fair
chances of securing results in the
near future In this event England
would be a heavy buyer in this mar
ket. ' I
"The old crop Cubas that are being
held are damaging their owner?
rather than doing them good. If
these were thrown on the market
regardless of what they would bring
the situation would be rectified .Quick
ly and we could start trading again
on a new basis. Once the bottom is
reached the market will react very
quickly and both domestic and export
demand will be shown in considerable
