First Meeting Since War Meets
Problems and. Accomplishes
' Much In-few Sessions
-Only flirt day were necessary to
complete the bnslnes before the an
nual meeting of the Hawaiian Sugar
Planters' Association this year, on of
. the moat Important of all of the thirty-seven
that the' association tiai held.
. The adjournment last Wednesday af
,' teraoon eatne as' rather a surprise, even
.' to the members who had not expected
to finish' before jresterday afternoon at
the earliest. Rome of .the members of
the association aaid yesterday that had
they know the aeaainna would close
on Wednesday they would have made
' arrangements to return home that even-
in; but 'that now they would remain
over until Saturday.' '
Time Not Wasted -
One reason for ' the earlier end of
the meeting waa the expedition that
' -was shown right ' after the opening.
Heretofore, having organised, recess
; wduld be ' taken for the rest of the
morning' for the election. This year,
' however, a ten-minute recess was tak-
en, then eatne the reconvening and
business; went right ahead. A half -day
' was thus saved, at the very outset.
The handling of the labor, wage and
'. bonus reports and the questions aris
ing under them, in an executive session
' ami reference of , the matter to eora
. mittee saved a vast amount of debate
on these aubjecta that would probably
ia the end have brought about the
same result, a submission to s commit
' tee with powers. .; . .
Indeed the readiness to entrust the
more important -matters that were be
fore the meeting . t committee aolu
"tioo was the chief cause of the rapid
. disposal thai waa made of business. .
Improvement la Buar ' .
One of the points p'f especial inter
. est that wa brought out in the re
- porta and in the coarse ef discussion
of them was that the cause of eom
plaint as to the granulation of Hawai
ian sugar had been satisfactorily re
, moved.. A year ago this problem was
discussed at aome length and it was
then determined to make, if possible,
a grade of sugar that would meet the
demands of the refiners. ,
Shipping' problems are uncertain
v enough and aerions enough to have
' caused prolonged discussion. They re
' eeived consideration but the commit
' teea and the Bugar Faetora Company
are looked te for the working out of
the solution so far as lies within their
powers and they will do it quite aa well
and probably far better than could be
done by any other nation taken by
the association.
Ia this connection, however, it was
' brought -out that there is need for
larger atorage facilities on practically
all the plantations if the shortage of
' bottoms (or the marketing of sugar
should remain aa acute aa it is bow.
This question, together with types of
' warehouses and equipments was taken
np in a special report.
Pests and parasitea was a topic of
general interest diseussnd under the
; report of, H. P, Agee, for several of
the plantations have sustained serious
losses from the leaf hopper. Mr. Agee
. apswered the qnery of whether the par
asite was playing out in 'the negative
, and blamed to mnusnal conditions the
apparently lessened ettieacv of the par
asite. Conserve -Water Supply
. Importance' of .forestration and of
. reforestration aa an aid to the con-
. . nervation of the water supply was dis
cussed at some length at the first scs-
, aioa of the association and again on
Tnesday morning. The unanimous sen
timent favored action that would aave
What there is of higher forests and
' provide for more.
. Machinery, labor saving devices, fer
tilization, irrigation and by products
of sugar were some of the other sub
jects that were considered.
'Contrary, to the expectation of some
the matter of leases and of - home-,
" steading did not come in fos much con
sideration, possibly this being consid
ered a matter for action in other ways,
perhaps Jy. the individual plantations
1 rather thaa . by all collectively.
'It wan-the first meeting of the asso
ciation since the war and a patriotic
- keynote was sounded by K. D. Tenney'
at the outset. lie made it clear to the
members that the primary duty of the
planters nere is to produce the largest
possible supplies of sugar and to meet
the new burdens which they are sud--denly
called upon to carry.
'The election of trustees and by them
of officers bronght no surprises. Binco
Mr. Tenney had served only a part of
a term, succeeding Georg Bodiek after
the war broke out and the lutter wus
indicted for conspiracy to violate the
neutrality of the United States, it was
but fair that he should continue in of
fice and that the general plan of rota
tion should not be further disturbed.!

SUGAR CROP IN EXCESS OF THE
ESTIMATES MADE IN MAY LAST
Production of Hawaiian sugar np to
September 30 had been 3734 ton in
ezcesa of the May estimates. On Ha
waii the drought had prevented seme
of the plantuions from grinding so that
the final figures from some of . those
plantations may exceed the .fljfurcs in
the table which was presented to the
members of the association when final
returns come in from all of the planta
tions. As a matter of fact the table
of shipments published in The Adver
tiser on November 8 showed shipments
larger than some of these figures as in
the ease of Ola a and Onomea.
Hawaii nliipments were behind and
grinding behind 'as well at the time
the above tuble was prepared. As n
result of that 'fact the Big Island
grind is shown as 4468 tons' below the
estimate. All of the other Islands are,
however, above the estimatea and the
final figures will be nearer to 050,000
short tons.

two days normal melting so the. relief
la comparatively iasignifleent, especial
ly since covering the large stretch of
Eastern territory. Similarly shipments
of hundred cars of beet 1 granulated
from California to New York is not an
important factor. The same is true of
twenty-five cars to New England",
though, tending. Jo alleviate the un
bearable situ t ion. -
Little raw sugar la offered.- Small
sales of prompt Cubes and Venecuelas
at aix ninety eenta were made to Inter
national ComraHtee, which, however, is
not interested at the moment. - They
are offering new crop four seventy -five
t. o. ,b. Cuba, or at, price -ultimately
fixed with the planters. The latter are
stiffened by the support of Menocal,
who is firm at four seventy-five, claim
ing coat of production . in Western
Cuba is higher than in the eastern
provinces. . '.- '
The Babst regime is pursuing a more
conciliatory policy but still taking ad
vantage of the situation to undermine
the middleman by poshing uneconomic
packages to the retail trade. It is
pointed out that the groeers are com
pelled to pay the additional cost of
these goods, and yet are -forced to
split cartons into half-pound parcels in
order to fairly distribute . available
supplies to Customers Involving addi
tional labor and Jnaterial in wrapping.
The same trade is getting aroused ovor
domination by Banst, but so far no
eoncerted action baa been taken be
eauae it is believed that Washington
will avert conflict In this juncture. , It
is predicted .locally that the Ameri
can will meet fierce competition after
peaee when the good will of the dis
tribution may prove to be, a decided
asset to other refiners, It is also a
question whether when the million-dollar
advertising fund Is exhausted the
public will euntiuua to sweeten with
domino, especially if prire-cutting is
rampant.

Steamer Leaving Next Week
Cleans Up 1917 Sugar and '
Starts Off 1918 Grind
First shipments of the 1918 crop will
be made, it is expected, next week. A
steamer will then leave with a cargo of
7500 tons made up of the last of this
year's and the first of next year's
sugar. Of this cargo 2500 tons will go
for Brewer ft Co.
Just what price the sugar that Is now
leaving here will find when it gets to
New York is the question that vexes
agencies now. Usually the late sngar
brings aTfigh pHcd; fcuf If'e'tipears'llk
ly that sugar now leaving for the At
lantic coast will go under the fixed
price of approximately aix eenta a
ponnd. -
Recently there came reports from the
moinlnnd that Hawaiian sugar was
eagerly sought at 6.90, so that the lata
shipments mean a probable loss in pro
fits of 18 a ton. Facta About Sugar
had the following to say about expect
ed Hawaiian auger In it issue ef No
vember 17, showing at least 28,000 ton
liave probably received the higher price
during last month. This art U la aysr
"There are due af New York fcnd
Philadelphia the following quantities of
raw Hawaiian sugar still in tranait
across the continent, in addition to the
two later cargoes amounting - to 10,
010 tons noted lust week as expected to
arrive through the canal; ex Mexi
can, 000 tons; ex Oenge, 900 tons; ex
Texan, 3020 tons; ex Mexican, 11,240
tons; total, by nil, 10,720 tona. A ship
ment of 650 tons just received at San
Francisco by the Mat son steamship En
terprise, will be added to the cargo of
the Warhnsett, which ha been delayed
in sailing for the ennui. This makes a

System 1$ Practically Determln
: xjd and May Be Fully Set-
' tied At Mating Today ; 1
TRUSTEES ALL"T0 SIGN l
. BEFORE ANNOUNCEMENT
Less Prosperous Plantations
.Claim It. Is Impossible, To
PayPrwerit Labor Costs .
Revision of the bonus system has
been determined upon by the Hawaii
an Sugar Planters' Association and
the new plan ha been practically net
tled. It had been expected that It
terms eoiild be announced this morn1
log but In the course of yesterday af
ternoon one slight hitch arose which
prevented this. Another meeting' of
the committee and perhaps of the
trustees will be held this morning at
which It U expeeted that the anal
term may be settled but no announce
ment will be made until the report is
signed "by all of . the trustee i,
If o Premature Annonncemente -A
How the new bonus system will dif
fer from the old ia known only to the
committee named by the Sugar Plant
era, of which A. W. T. Bottomley is
the head and, 'to the trustees and the
head of the labor bureau. They have
agreed that nothing shall be given
out prematurely and . to prevent this
determined that ' the ' announcement
ahould be made only after it had bees
signed by all of the traatees of the aa
sociation. . Most of them were ready
to sign or had signed yesterday when
the new complication mentioned arose.
It is not expected this will eanse any
long delay and it ia possible that the
announcement will be made either to
day or tomorrow, before the oat of
town members of the association have
left for their homes. j '
Consideration Come Early '
The afternoon of the first day of
the annual meeting of the association
was given over to n discussion, in ex
ecutive session, sf he Iquestjon of
wage and bonuses. At this aessioa
only the trustee and the plantation
manager were admitted. At that ees-'
si on "the matter were gone into at
length nnd thoroughly discussed "frost
the various angle. The question waa
referred to eommittee to report back
to the trustees who will in tnrn report
their, actiona to the members. "
angea Were DenunfleA w , v; n
Before the Planters Association met
it waa forecast that there would be
change in the bonus system. - tyUh
costs doubled in many Tespeeta the
smaller plantations, or many of them
at least, declared that it was impos
sible for them 'to pay a bona of nor
than seventy-five percent of the wages
of plantation laborera. While Ewa is
one of the larger and more prosperous'
plantation it can be taken as an
example of how. taxea and bonuses hare
raised the costs of production of tbn
of sugar. Other plantations mar be dif
ferently affected on taxes but the bona
paid affect all alike. Before the war
bonus and taxes paid by Ewa amount
ed to 2.43 while now they will amount
to $40.40.. The bono paid by that
plantation now amounts to 14.25 for
each ton of suear nroduced. And so
it is with the less prosperous plafita-'
nuns wnicn nave in tne past, in many
Instances, 'been just able to struggle
along. The difference le' that in the
ease of Ewa the taxes have increased
more heavily than the smaller planta
tions because its earning were larger.
Increase axe Unlikely .
- It Is a safe forecast that the new
plan will not increase the rate of bonus,
judging from the expressions that were
heard, from agency heads prior to the
meeting. It wss the almost unanimous
consensus of opinion nmong them that
the bonua system had been designed
to meet pre-war condition and not con
ditions which so materially increased
ost of production and the fixing of a
pnev ueuuue, wnicn is a maximum and
not a., minimum price, for which the
sugar must foe sold.
It is hardly likely that the bonus
system which will be announced after
the agreement has been Inally reached,
will be satisfactory to the Japanese s
sociation organised here in Honolulu
for the purpose of securing an tnereas
in the wage paid to laborers or a revi
sion of the bonus system along line
which it suggested.
' One suggestion made ia that the final
determination of bonua nte be left
nnil later in the season, probably
well toward tie close, and that mean
time a wage be paid equal to the or
diner? iwage. and oss third mere, 'the
latter being a part of the bonus for
the year, ft may be that this proposal
has entered in part into thei considera
tion of the eommittee and the aanounce-
ment would : then be not final U
the ultimate amount that labor would
receive at the close of the bonu year.
