1.123 cents, ruling between December.

thia is the lowest price at which Ha
waiian ugar has been aold for eight
een years, the laet date on which this
low level waa reached having leen Oc
tober 17, 1898.
' .' Former Free Sugar period. '
V.The previous "free augar'V period
lasted from December 1,' 1890, to-August
27, 1894. From the latter date
intil annexation there waa a, forty per
cent ad- valor-era duty. Even ia free
ugar timea the price only dropped to
i eent or lower on six weekly aum-'
mary dates in 1893, twenty-four date
in 1894, eighteen ia 1895 and six week
ly dates In 189. . The lowest price at
which Hawaiian sugar has sold since '
1890 waa 2.73 cents, from December
19 to 28, 1894, after the repeal of "free
ugar" ami tho restoration of the forty
ler rent ad valorem protection under
tho reciprocity treaty.
WMle ougar price will probably re
main -at about present level during1
lannary and February, or miyht per
hap again fall to 3.1 or 3.126 cents,
it i believed that tho tariff redmction
haa beea ao thoroughly discounted that
prices will probably advance after
March 1, 1914. There are very few
of the Hawaiian plantations that can
pay dividends if sugar remains at pres
ent level. ".. t
