pany nmountcil tu n per cent more
than nt the sumo time lust enr. Two
hundred thousand tons or Btigar had
been dispatched on Its way at that
time ,us against 190,000 up till the
name time in I SOS. This Is u little
less than 30 per cent of the estimat
ed crop for the jenr.
The estimate of the a ops handled
by the Sugar Factors Company for
this year Is placed lit 440,000 tons.
The total shipments through the
company last year amounted to 120,
The Sugar Factors' Company han
dle about 82 per cent of all the su
gar grown In the Islands, only about
90,000 tons being shipped through
oilier sources, soothe company's esti
mate on the total crops can be made
with a very fair degree .or accuracy.
Tho total shipment for this year
R' estimated at about 16,000 tons In
excess of that for last, cut the total
is a conservative one, and the final
llguies will probably run above rath
er than below.
Whether the concerns not ship
ping through tlie Sugar Factois'
Company will show un Increase on
the same scnle iir those connected
with it, Is an open question, but
there seems to be u prevailing Idea
that favorable conditions which
have prevailed during tho several

FOR ALEWA ROAD
Work On Extension
Artlng Superintendent of Public
Works Kluegel stutes that he ex
pect next week to cotnmenco the
construction of the Alewa Heights
roud extension. There Is now about
1 1,000 available for the purpose, and
this will carry the road u good wus.
Just where It will end will bo left to
some extent to the wishes of the
Aletvu Heights property owneis,
within the limits Imposed, of couisc,
by the amount of money available. A
meeting of the Alewa Heights Im
provement Club is called for next
Monday night, at which It Is proba
ble that this matter will be consid
ered. Mr. Chlba, who arrived from For
iqost In the Tenyo Mam, will leavu
for Maul this afternoon As un engi
neer he will Inspect the sugar mills
on that Island. He will return to Ja
pan In tho Korea, sulling Mny 27.
llcforc the fli st of next month over
1,000 suits nre to be Instituted by
the Superinteiiajiu o. Public Works
against property owneis uf Honolulu
who are back on tho pJMueiil of
their sewer rates. Ilcforo ho left
for tho Coast this week, Superintend
ent Campbell gavo Instructions to
have the suits ull started by June 1,
and the work Is being rushed In tho
Public Works olllce.
There Is something like $GL,000
delinquent In sewer rates, anil here
tofore there has been no way of com
pelling the payment of them. Hut
the Legislature passed nn Act which
makes sewer rates a prior lien on the
property, and with this to go on tho
department Is going to make a vig
orous effort to bring tho reluctant
oncH to time. It looks as If the law
yers would havo u busy llmo for a
while. It Is certain thut the tlov
eminent attorney will llnd some
thing to do.
