Henry St. Ooar found plantation
conditions particularly promising dur
ing hla visit to the other Islands. Ho'
oIho predicts a euro advanco In the
price of raw BUgar.
v "I' returned this morning from Maul,"
said Mr. 8t, Ooar, .having spent the
UBt few days at Pioneer and Hawaiian
, Commercial, and I dare say that I
have' never' seen more prosperous con
ditions. Everything looks Uio pink of
perfection, and the good price for the
raw material gives a helping hand to
prosperity. . predicted months and
months ago that wo would get good
prices for raw sugar this year, and. I
believe ii that In few months from
now; the 'price of the raw material will
stlll'stllea up. '

According to the report of James
Webster, tho manager,- tho planta
tion is in a good state of cultiva
tion. The net profit for the past
season amounted to $124,519,75,
which, added to the amount carried
forward from last year, Is about
$39,000 better than last year.
The crop amounted to 6873 tons
of BUgar,- and was taken off 1994
acres. The crop of 1910 will be
taken off 198C ncres, whllo that of
1911 will be harvested from 1960
Grinding of the 1910 crop started
on February 28. This was later
than anticipated, but owing to the
putting In of a new mill at Pepee
keo, grinding was delayed.
Four new laborers! houses were
built during the past year, also a
new Btablo and an overseer's house.
The plantation Is In excellent shape
and all planting Is well advanced.
Tho crops of 1909 and 1910 suf
fered more or less from an excess of.
moisture. The crop of 1911 had a
pretty wet start, according to the
manager's report, but Is now doing
well. The labor situation Is satis
