Sale of Hawaii's raw sugars at tho ruling market rate Is guar
anteed for another three-year period. Arrangements have been
made for tho, extension of tho contract between tho local sugar
planters and' tho American Sugar Refining Company.
Tho present contract docs not expire for a year or more, but
during thu past summer successful negotiations have been carried
on In New York that assure tho sale of the island sugars on tho
present basis for another period
Under the scheme that has prevailed for soveral years the sug
ars of Hawaii's Sugar Factors Co., Ltd., are taken by tho Ameri
can Sugar Refining Compiny at New York, with the exception of be
tween one hundred and two hundred thousand tons shipped to the
Pacific Coasl. Tho price at which tho local sugars nro sold Is tho
quotation mado by tho sale of any lot of sugars of two hundred tons
or over on tho New-Jfork markot Just previous to the arrival of
any Hawaiian cargo at New York or tho Delawaro Breakwater. In
other words Hawaii's cargoes aro sold tho moment they are sight
ed off the Ureakwator.
Tlila contract for the sale of tho sugar Is what has sometimes
given rise to the statement that the local planters am In tho hands
ot the .Sugar Tiust, but the only string between tho Trust and
U tho IslniuHnduMry Is that tho th former agrees to buy the product
tt of the latter at tho market price. ,Tliu scheme Is probably beneficial
tt to the Trust In that It Is assured of a,soi:rre of supply, and It Is
tt of benefit to Han all planters. becr.uso they do not Indulge In a
i: scrnmbletn put their sugars op-the market at the same time and
