Sugar Commission's Accomplish-
merits Appear Meager To

Mail came through - la "bonehes"
this week relieving Congestion there
mmt have Wn in Ban Francisco's post
Office. 'Included in this mail came two
. let ton is sne of the largo sugar agen
cies here from ita New York reprenenta-
tive. Those letters are dated a week
apart and the one last written detail
something of the chaotic state of the
sugar situation and market in New
York. It mentions the hundred thou
' saad ton sale of Louisiana sugar, but
einee that letter was written it Was
- found impossible ts make a delivery
of more than half of the order.
. The letter of Oetober 87 says: -
'"Three weeks have now gone by
without the detnits report of a sale of
raw sugar which would affect the pres
ent bans for Hawaiian sugar for East
ern delivery. There was a sale of about
'7000 tons Philippine sugar afloat at
' 6.73 cents far 8 degrees polarisation to
the American Sugar Refining Company,
but oatside Of rumored sales of small
' lots ef Cuba at 6.87 cents C. F.
we hare no certainty. "-
... "The outstanding fact ef the week
was the sale reported yesterday of 100,
000 tons Louisianaa to the American
Sugar Refining Company, 60,000 tone of
which are to be delivered to the New
: Orleans refinery at 6.33 cents for 04 de
greet test and the remainder at 6.10
cents F. O. B. the same city for ship
ment to Atlantis ports. This means
that the American Sugar Refining Cora-
' pany pays S3 cents per 100 pounds for
freight to New York on '60,000 tons
and the net price realised by the
Louifiitnant interested i6.22V eeats per
- pound. It Is understood that this sugar

can Sugar Refining Company when re
fined at the fixed differential of 1.30
. cents per pound the first sale to be
made at 8.33 cents the present basis
of granulated, and from that II go re on
v a seals down to T.25 sents making the
average to the refiner .7.80 cents less

-"It will be sometime, however, before
this deal can bare much effect on the
. ' famine which now prevails on this
coast, for many ef the planters have
,' not yet commenced te cut their eane,
others are disgruntled because the food
' ; commission will not permit them to sell

; Patriotism 81gnifflcantly Absent ' '
. "There appears to be a spirit of an-;
v tagonism mil ever the Booth to every
; thing in the nature of government reg
ulation and, though the prosperity of
'. that section was never so great, a will
t ingness to sac rifles the opportunity to
make inordinate gains at the expense
. of the rest of the country is said to be
wholly , wanting. Refiners hers have
" not shared in the American's contract
. with the Louisiana prod users and are
giving evidence of much dissatisfaction 1
; over what they deem favoritism to the
big institution.
. Beet Situation Unsatisfactory
"The beet situation in the West Ls
not developing as satisfactorily as was
hoped for. Car shortage is given bj
' the reason for the slow alleviation of
the famine in augnr in the middle West.
" but labor difficulties and a rate start
, owing to unpropitious weather have
had winch to do with it. The Whole
. country is bare of sugar and the Hl
, gar ComminsionerK have their work cut,
I out for them. Recunciling opposing in-
terests in oHly one of their difficulties.
V Meanwhile the individual consumer has,
to pay" as high as 23 rents per pound
for sugar which the Food Commissioners
j. toll them should pot cost more than 10
. . 'cents.
Cuban Crop Looks Good
- "The Cuban erop is coming along
: 'With every indication of being a bum

daction owing te labwr troubles nd
' inadequate, transportation, and it is
t hoped that the Cuijan representatives,
who will meet with the food eommis
. ciooers shortly, will be able to arrive
. at an arrangement which will take the
celling and the handling of this Crop
. but of the domain of perad venture.
"A tale to the American Bugar Befin-
- ing Company is reported of 3000 tons
i I'ailippinos afloat on a 6.90 cents

; Vnder date of October 20 the writer

week it U reported there bave been
. small sales of Cuhns this week to some
refiner at the fixed price of 8.S74.

. and the quantity, in unknown. '
. Consumers In Paoio
"Most f tne refiners have ostenta-
- iioosly retired freu the- selling end of
j tbe market, and naturally, consumers
) , are ia a liaoic , All sorts of prices arc
being paid for domestic requirements
and the retailor is making hay while too
sun shines, with complete indifference to
' the edicts ef the food commissioners.
. Irniemuch as many of the retailers are
aliens, there is little compunction on
' ' their part about equeeclnj the last cent
out of it that the t raffle will bear, te
oh a well-known ( uhforoian apothegm
i in connection with railrofid buiunen
ethics. . Jt is believed that there is a
large in visible supply, due to the fact
that repeated scares tf one kind and
another since luxt March induced many

Grocers Make Admissions
"Grocers admit that they are not
paying much above the food commis
sion's maximum prices for what they
are selling to the needy ones at four
teen cents upwards per pound as long
as -the public Continues ia ita present
frame of mied The daily adjurations
in the press from food headquarters, re
finers, -ctnd other requesting ths con
sumers not to get excited nnd to eut
down consumption to a minimum, have
had the opposite from the hoped for re
sult, for those who have the money to
lay ia fifty to one hundred pounds arc
doing so without let tr; hindrance at
very satisfactory figures to the corner
grocer who sees no terror ' in a law
which ia expressly worded aot to affect
any profiteering he -may indulge in.
Those, who conscientiously try to com
ply iwith'the Wishes of the authorities
find they are in a -elaaa by 'themselves
where patriotism and public spirit sans
sugar will be their reward.

Progress ' :
Electrification of ths plantations of
the Islands is going ahead rapidly.
Following the splendid success of the
plant of the Hawaiian Commercial
Company, the installation of a plant
for neit year's work by the Oahu Hu
gar Company, the announcement that
Kwa nas to elertrify and . had placed
the order for its plant came the an
nouncement yesterday that Muai Agri
cultural Company was to elcetrffy and
bad i) lin ed with Catton. Neill Co..the
same company with which the Ew
order was placed last month, an order
ror a plant identical with the i bvi
plaat. '; ', i :
While the two latest plants to be or
dered are of only about halt the size of
that of the Hawaiian Commercial Com
pany plant, they are of the same gen
eral type and can serve as units when
end at any time the'conipSnies may de
termine that enlargements and further
electrification is necessary. .
. The order placed yesterday with Cat
ron, Neill si Co.,' as well as that for the
Kwa Company, contracts for the fur
nishing of 750 kilowatt power plants
for their respective mills. Their plans
are to replace numerous steam-driven
pumps with motor-driven centrifugal
pumps. Miscellaneous motors will drive
auxiliaries and lights will be furnished
the main camps.
.The power unit is to be a ?50 kilo
watt Curtis steam turbo generator, 440
volts, three phase, designed for non
eondensiug operation during the grind
ing sesson when the exhaust steam will
lie used in the boiling bouse. . During
the off season the station will be run
eondenxing in order to obtain the high
est fuel economy. , Aa induction motor
driven exciter .will be . used, . The
switchboard is to be an eight panel
board of the latest design. Ieters on
the board will give readings of the
amount of power seut to every portion
of the mill. , ' . i,
die feature of the plant is to be the
Installation of a general electric, indi
cating, recording and integrating wteam
plow muter. The present high cost of
fuel, togrthor with the difficulty in ob
taining it, lends strong testimony te
the need for better steam conditions.
Every possible effort must be exerted
to get most of the heat energy from the
fuel This instrument measures the in
stantaneous value of the steam, gives a1
record in the form of a curve and also
gives the total steam consumed during
a run of twenty-four hours. Use for
this meter in its various forma may be
found in measuring boilor feed water,
measuring the individual steam output
of each Uilor or battery of boilers,
measuring maseeratios water, or water
delivered from aay centrifugal pump. '
They expect to have ths equipment
installed nnd running by the nest off
season. The plant as a whole will be
one of the best is the Islands.

es pumps, piping, shafting, gears, pul
leys, and the ever-troublesome belt,
and replace them with motor drives.
This has resulted in increased effici
ency and greater economy. Each year
sees the installation of motors increas
ed with the results Just stated.
: Those turbines are designed to work
asder a steam-pressure' of JtO poands

to completion. Bains' on -Hawaii 'will
make possible ths early completion of
the' grind on a number of plantatlona
that have been delayed bythe drought
which made it impossible to flume cans
to tha mills. It .would appear .A hat
there is about 20,009 tons still remain
ing in ths Islands, some still to be
ground, other awaiting transportation.
.. The Juno- estimate -of the 1917, as
published in the table on 1 his page
was 637,182. I .a tor estimates that came
to the Sugar Factors Company raised
these figures to approximately 648,000
tons but still iater estimates brought
a reduction from those figures to about
644,B00 tone. On this Inst estimate
there would still be awaiting shipment
20.223 tons for up to tbs first of the
month' shipments hsd been' 62457
teas, 42ftd tons mors than the 1916
crop.. Ia addition to these figures for
this year it most be taken into con
siderotioa that there is taken about
13,000 tons of sugar for the Islands,
Which would make the 1917 crop about
500 tea larger -tana ' the last year
crop and about 29,000 tons over ear
lier estimates, including insular eon
sumption. Little difficulty in getting the bal
ance of ths crop to market is expect
ed tbongh' just what the arrangements
will be save not been determined. The
late crop is a little larger than vsual
but It win not take s great amount of
cargo-space to handle it when all the
grinding is completed, Considerable
