Vltliln a few weekt, a new schedule
of freight charges will be put In oper

3. S. Co. While 'the rates have not

panies are just about making both cida
meet and consider themselves lucky
to do that.
Th,ore wob some kicking amou sev
eral of the wholesalers on the rats? lu
rates, and they have threatened to sMp
direct to tho other Islands. Howovcr,
not much opposition on this sco-o vvao
met with, as It Is known to be expen
sive to do this, shipmasters as a rule
wanting more freight money where
they go to an outside port. From tba
numerous accidents that havo happen
ed to vessels at other Island ports, the
Insurance on cargoes Is higher.
Under the present condition of
things, with the United States law J
In .effect an J governing the shipping,
it Ir more expensive to run the steam
crb than heretofore. Tho wages o! to.'
clews have advanced very materially,
nml with but few exceptions, the for
ruer cairylng capacity of the steamers several weeks yet,
has been greatly cut down, an example
of this being the steamer Mauna Lti.i.
Yhcre formerly tUls s'tamer carried
fiom twelve to thirteen thousand bags
of BUgar at a trip, now s.e may not
carry more than nine thousand bags.
This cuts her earning capacity uown
considerably on each trip.
The tariff on Newcastle coal' of fi
cents a ton, also cut3 quite a consider
able llguio in the operation of the
steamers, but the coal Is used ns It it
generally considered better steam coal
than the Amcrjcan product.
