from harbor craft and factories
and hundreds of Ilonolulans
crowding piers 8, 9, and 10 to see
the big boat, and welcomed by u
delegation from the Honolulu
Chamber of Commerce, by five
outrigger canoes and by the Ha

"535's" allocated to the Matson
Steam Navigation Company, arri

At 5 o'clock Wednesday after
noon he Hawkeye State will
leave for Hilo to discharge cargo
and take on about 3000 tons of
sugar. Another 3000 tons will
be loaded here, all of which is for
delivery at Baltimore.
The Hawkeye State represents
an outlay of about $8,000,000.
This high price is due, to some
extent, to the extreme alteration
of the vessel from a transport to
a passenger liner. The accomo
dations are up-to-the-minute, as
the government desired that every
cabin be fitted in a manner that
would reflect credit upon the gov
ernment and give exceptional com
fort and ease to those who want to
travel in luxury .--Nippu Jiji.
WITHOUT CONTRACT FOR
HANDLING SUGAR CROP
The Walakea homesteaders are still
without a contract for the handling of
their sugar crop, says the Advertiser.
They are dissatisfied with the prop
osition made by Davies & Co, agents
tor the Walakea mill, whereby they
would have to buy $190,000 worth of
stock in the California & Hawaiian
Sugar corporation, or reorganized
Crockett refinery. Tentative affange
ments were made tor a contract with
the Western refinery. Later this idea
was given up, and it was announced
that the homesteaders would accept
the Crockett proposition.
Now it is announced that the Cali
fornia & Hawaiian stock subscription
was closed, without the homesteaders
taking up their allottment. Without
stock, it is said, they cannot ship their
sugar to the refinery.
The possibility remains, that the
homesteaders may make a contract
with the Western, but no assurance
has been given that they will still be
able to secure California & Hawaiian
stock so that they can ship to Crockett.
