Establishment of a shark and whale
leather factory on Oahu is still con
templated by the Universal By-Prod-ucts
company of Seattle according to
the Star-Bulletin. The Honolulu
chamber of commerce has received
further information and inquiries
from the company, and it is consider
ed likely that a representative will
be sent here shortly to look over the
field and discuss with local interests
the location and cost of a factory
A site at .Haleiwa would be suit
able, the company officials state,
since it would not bo necessary for
the plant to be located near the city.
In reply to inquiries regarding the
possible odor, W. P. Macfarlane of
the company writes that modern im
provements have made the processes
practically odorless, in the fish meal
and fertilizer plant which it is pro
posed to establish here, as well as in
the tannery itself.
The chamber is writing to ask how
many workmen will be employed In
the proposed . factory and how many
families will be brought here.
DOW SHOWS SPEED AS
State of Sugar Supply
Forecasts Better Market
Absence of Invisible Stocks Factor of
Strength in Situation as Com
pared with Last Year
An incident occurred last Thurs
day morning that shows what the
wireless really means to Kauai.
Captain Woolen of Luke Field sent
Dr. R. H. H:igood of Kealia a rush
message with a request for an imme
diate answer. The message was
sent from Honolulu at two minutes
after eight and received here at prac
tically the same time. It was im
possible to get Dr. Hagood on the
phone until ten minutes a,fter eight.
Dr. Hagood received his message
and immediately dictated an answer.
It was sent back to Honolulu at once.
From the time the message was start
ed from Honolulu until the answer
was received there twelve minutes
lapsed. And eight of these minutes
were taken nilocating tire doctor on
this island. Wireless operator C, J.
Dow received a message from the
, hi; f in Honolulu congratulating him
upon (lie speed of handling his mes
sages. Without the wireless it would have
taken two days to have got an ans
wer back in Honolulu from a letter
sent Thursday. And that speed
could only be attained becaause it
happens that on Thursday night tlu
boat loaves Honolulu and on Friday
night it returns. At any other time
in the week it would have taken con
siderably more time.
Losing Age Rapidly.
"There, sir, that's made you ten
i years younger," said the hairdresser,
brushing away the last fragment of
the customer's close-cropped beard.
A week elapsed ere the same victim
occupied the chair, and in that w: ek
, the hirsute crop had regained its for-1
nier luxuriance. '
j "What can I do for you this time. J
sir?" asked the artist, politely. i
i "Oh, clip off another ten years,"!
came the reply. Houston Post. '
Present reports of crops and sup
plies of sugar available between now
and the end of the year, according to
"Facts About Sugar", indicate that
4922 will be begun under market con
ditions more favorable than those
that prevailed at the commencement
of the current year, although it is
evident that the carry-over in produ
cers," hands may be as large or possi
bly even larger.
Consumers' Stocks Small
The principal difference between
conditions which will most probably
prevail at the end of this year, as
compared with lact, is that huge sup
plies had accumulated at the close of
1920 in the hands of both manufac
turing and household consumers,
whereas this year, it Is conceded, In
visible supplies are practically negli
At the end of last year supplies of
1,000,0(10 tons or more were on hand.
exclusive of the invisible supply. The
latter has been estimated by compe
tent authorities to have amounted to
as much as 800,000 tons!
This year, with virtually no invis
ible supply, the Indications are that
the new year will begin with a carry
over ranging from a million to a
maximum of a million and a half tons
and the prospect of a steady demand
for sugar throughout the year.
Of the present crop, including
stocks from last year's output, Cuba
appears to have something like 2,300,
000 tons still unshipped, of which pos
sibly r.00,000 tons will be required by
Europe, leaving roundly 1,800,000
tons available to this country.
Hawaii appears to have still about
32.1,000 tons, which under normal con
ditions will reach the mainland be
fore the end of the year. The move
ment of this crop Is proceeding very
slowly and some part of It may not
reach market before 1922.
Little to Come from Porto Rico
Porto Riio's supply is fast diminish
ing, latest reports from authoritative
sources Indicating that there remain
but about 160,000 tons to be shipped.
Supplies from the Philippines, rep
resent a somewhat uncertain factor,
but it would seem that the United
Plates may receive the bulk of the
unsold centrifugal production, prob
able shipments being estimated in the
vicinity of 75,000 tons.
Owing to the fact that a large pro
portion of the Louisiana sugar has
been shipped on consignment, it is
impossible to make an exact estimate
of the quantity remaining unsold. It
would appear, however, that this sug
ar has been moving rather slowly and
probably 40,000 tons, out of the orig
inal production of 169,000 remains to
The coming Louisiana crop prom
ises an increase over last season, be
ing the only immediately prospective
sugar crop likely to exceed last year's
output. It is estimated at about
300,000 tons, of which possibly half,
can be put on the market before the
end of the year, depending in some
degree, of course, on the ability of
producers to hold or their need to
convert their sugar into cash. ,
Old Crop Best Unsold
Of last year's domestic beet crop of
973,233 long tons, current reports In
dicate that about 3S5.000 tons remain
unsold; while of the new crop, which
present information indicates w,ill
reach about 725,000 tons, posibly half,
or 302,500 tons may be available for
marketing by the end of the year,
though this also is largely a qeustion
of conditions existing at that time.
In addition to these figures, stocks
of approximately 205,000 tons are in j
the country, which would make a to
tal amount available before the end
of the year of roughly 3,5!5;000 tons, j
as from the middle of June. Prom
this quantity must be deducted ex-j
ports of refined, which have beejn i
increasing of late and which should
amount to some 150,000 tons for the
balance of the year, on the basis of
tlie present movement. Against
these export shipments may be set
indeterminate imports of full duty
sugars, which may reach an approxi
mately equal volume.
Million-ton Carry-over Likely
Figurng un average consumption
of 325,000 tons monthly, this would
allow a carry-over of from 1,300,000
to l,4.r0,(mo tons. When prices reach
a stable level distributors undoubted-!
ly will begin to accumulate supplies j
and the movement should easily nb-j
sorb 4'mI.OOO tons, considering the I
present depletion of their stocks.
This would reduce the carry-over to
a million tons. Cuban interests an-1
ticipate the necessity of holding ap-1
proximately this quantity and are j
making arrangements to do this, so"
that whatever amount it may be nee- i
ess iry to carry will not bear unduly
upo-i the market. In that case, the ;
amount left in producers' hands will j
be reduced to 300,000 to 400,000 tons. '
