Sugur plantation managers nsrem
bled In the city probably realize but
ter tliiin any of those who give them
gratuitous Instructions on how to run
their plantations, that they have be
fore them one of the most itllllcult
years that a manager can experience
Three years of good times, excep
tionally prosperous times, hae just
come to a close.
The stockholders having become ac
customed to comfortable regulur divi
dends and pleasant extras, can't nl
wuys understand why they should be
brought down to the "regulars" and
hardly that, despite the fuct that the
price of sugar for the coming cam
paign will be twenty-five dollars a ton
less than In recent years. So the
stockholders become fretful.
The men who toll will cxpcrlenco
much of the same feeling us regards
their wages. They will estimate tho
wage-paying capacity of the planta
tions on what was done in dividends
during tho Inst two years, rattier than
on the ability to pay on the present
price of sugar In the world's market.
Thus laborers may become an easy
prey to demagogues.
In addition to this the managers
must grapple with the prqblems that
arise from the quiet revolution that is
going on In tho Industry resulting
from the passing of gang lubor conse
quent to the change In the character
Every man interested in the pro
duction of sugar In these Islands real
izes that the conditions of the Indus
try are steadily changing, nnd in con
sequence of this there must be n con
stantly increasing spirit of coopera
tion between the "plnnters" and the
people at large, tho citizen commun
ity of this Territory.
Nearly all those who tnko a com
mon sense view of the practical facts
of the sugar Industry will realize that
this is no time to Increase dividends,
nor Is It the time to Increase wages.
Dut this is the day and the season
when tho plantation managers who
can discern the drift of affairs will
shape their policies so as to make life
and labor on the sugar plantations
more attractlvo to home makers und
The tlmo has arrived In tho history
of this Territory and Its main industry
when It Is good business to establish
sugur plantation employes In homes
rather than barracks; to create con
ditions that will bring more of citizen
labor onto the plantations and ennble
those people to reside In houses thnt
they will bo glad to regard as perma
nent places of abode. ,
This matter of citizen labor Is not
entirely one In which distinctions aro
to be drawn between tho Oriental and
the Kuropean. Tho Japanese employed
on the plantations are raising fum
Illes, and with the proper surround
ings there Is no reason why tho sugar
properties should not appeal to the
Japanese-American population that Is
growing up In the Territory, n people
who have a natural aptitude for agri
culture and have only to be Inspired
as other Americans have to bo, with

When It Is taken Into consideration
that ihoso figures on poultry represent
only thu pruihu ts mutketed It ran
readily bo seen that the entire poultry
products -of the nation would run Into
fabulous figures. It Is estimated that
Amcrli.iu runners nnd other poultry
raisers consume, three times us many
eggs and fowls as they sell, nnd If
that be tho raso tho total value of
poultry products would bo $2,41)0,000,

country Is valued at $500,000,000, or
