t Is, Iheicfore, not expected that the
crop of 1909 will ho as largo as that
r tOOS, and the estimate for this year
Is placed ut 30,000 tons. (Si lading was
eguii on December lf)th last and.
it present writing, there hao been
manufactured C75o tons sugar.

It Is probable lli.it tlieie will he
more Shoit Itntoons than the nmouut
dui above. It Is iiImi probable that
iho area of Plant may bo Increased by
i.ew hind at Walmaualo, of which 83
icres have been planted. It has not
vet been decided whether this will bo
can led over to the Crop of 1911 or
ground In 1910.
Taking It all around, tho cane for
next year looks very promising Indeed
The pluntlng was completed much
earlier than usual mid the fields coer
nunc of the best lands on the planta
tion. In addition to these advantages,
iho Increased water supply developed
iluilng 1908, should mid matcilally to
Its yield and a good output Is antic-
Mill Crop 1908.
(it lading season was commenced on
December 11th, 1907, anil completed
on August 31st, 1908. Kor reasons bo-
fine given, a Icbs rpmutlty of cano was
iccpilird to pioiiiico a ton of sng.ir
than in the prut tons year and losses
in manuractiiio (12 ) wcio corres
There weto no labor troubles during
lite year and tho supply was liettet
than for a number of previous years.
This enabled the plantation to harvest
Its crop In good season ami finish Its
limiting of a much linger area earlier
The prices luallzcd for sugar, which
pievall duilng tho grcatci poll Ion of
ihe,)cnr, caused tho iniimigement to

KAHUKU ENJOYED .
Larger Yield Is Expected
For Season Of
The annual meeting of the Kahuku
Plantation stockholders was held
Wednesday nlternnon, Manager Ad
ams tepotts j follows:
Crop of 190S The yield of sugar
fiom the fields harvested for this
tiop was 053S tons. This was lesii
HI gar than was expected The short
age was prim lpally In the yield
from tho short ratuins nnd tho plant
cano fiom fields 14 nnd 15 Theshoit
ratoons suffered while very young
from the cold weather of the cnily
months of 1907. Cultivating ex
penses incurred on these ratoons
were greater than usual and the yield
from them was below the average, so
that the cost per ton of sugnr fiom
short ratoons was greater than tho
normal. Tho Mill In fields 1 1 and
15 is thin and deficient in organic
plant food. These llclds have been
cioppcd lontlnuoiisly for eight years
owing to the limited area under the
control of your company available
for cone cultivation. These condl
IIoiib urc in the main responsible for
tho poor yields from these fields. The
continuance of the present practice
of abandoning the very poor poi
tlons of Iheso fields where the culti
vating and harvesting expenses are
abnormally high nnd tho yield below
the average will result in a slightly
I educed yield with greatly reduced ex
penses and no reduction in the rev
enue therefrom. The results from
the crop ns n whole vveie gratifying
Clop of 1909 The cano of this
crop ripened unusually early and bar
vesting operations were lonimeiiced
on November 21st. Tho ratio area Is
as follows: Plant cane. f90 53
acres; long ratoons, 370 acies; short
ratoons, 330.5 ucres; u total of 1.
297.03 acres. In addition, several
outside planters .will have nine for
this crop, which should mako a com
bined yield or at least 6700 tons of
Crop of 1910 1'or this ciop then'
wero planted 383.5 ncrcs. There Is
also an r-rra of G31.38 acres of long
tutoous nnd 354 ncrcs of short in
toons ,u total area of 1308.88 acres.
or 71 acres greater than the area for
the nop of 1909 Planting was fln-It-lieil
on tho 15th of July, which Is
unusually early. The long ratoons
vveie brought under cultivation at
an earlier date than usual and tho
short ratoons wero nil under cultiva
tion on the 10th of December This
earlier growth under tho favnrnblo
climatic conditions which have pre
vailed to tho present writing should
result In an Increased average yield
per acre or this .crop.
