THE FALL IN SUGAR.
The effects of the present low
price of sugar are not yet fully real
ized. Should the downward tend
ency in this, our staple product,
continue, or should sugar even" con
tinue at its present rate there will be
troublous times, not only for the
planters but for the whole com
munity. Fortunately, in most dis
tricts in this Kingdom, the sugar
3'icld of the present season is un
usually productive. The increase in
quautity will, to a certain extent,
compensate for the decrease in pi ice,
but unfortnnately it will not be uni
versal or diminish the overdrafts to
the extent that has been anticipated.
We have been shown a couple of
' account sales of planters, on different
islands. One is for 78 tons of sugar
which realized $9,929.32. After de
ducting the expenses abroad, the
planter netted, for his half share,
almost 84,000. From this he had to
deduct the expenses, at home, of
fyf cultivating, carting, and shipping
and bags which amounted to 83,400.
This left him less than $G00 to pay
the propoition, from that yield, of
his yearly taxes, interest, rent, wear
and tear and cost of living.
The second account sales were for
42 tons of sugar which realized 4,
300. The San Francisco and Honolulu
charges together amounted to over
$900, leaving less than $3,400 of
which the planter received less than
$1,700. From this he paid the cost
of production, rent, interest, taxes
cartage and shipping which amouu
ted to $1,600, and he found himself
'the owner of less than 8100 to main
tain his wife and family with the
necessaries of life, and with no re
turn for his own labor.
These may be isolated cases and
wo hope that they arc. But they
show, at least, that all the planters
in the Kingdom are not the wealthy
individuals that they are generally
reputed to be. If the present rates
last it is merely a question of time
how long the planters will be able,
or care, to continue iu obtaining
credit and overdrafts and in working
for nothing, unless there be a mate
lial l eduction in working expenses
including the cost of labor. The
life of a planter, with such lclurns
for his produce as avo have above
quoted, is not a hnppy one, and wo
hope that the returns from their next
grindings may show a larger yield
and that the price of sugar, instead
of the planters, may, in the mean
time, "go up."

MR. PRACHT'S DEATH.
The Planter brought news of the
death of Mr. George Pracht, who
met with an accident recently in
Kau. A private letter received by
the Planter, dated April 10th, says:
"A most serious change for the
worse set in. Pracht was taken with
lockjaw on Sunday and the doctor
has been fighting the disease ever
since with opium, morphine injec
tions, chlorofo'rm, etc. He has been
kept under the influence of chloro
