detrhed to the Atlantic by the way

, reloaded with a cargo of sugar for the
eastern refineries.''. ' ' . .
.. That the Hawaiian sugar crop of
1918 for eastern ' delivery was to be
seat to the Atlantic seaboard by the
way of the Panama Canal, instead of
from her to Has Francisco aad thea
serosa the voatinent by rail as first
expected, tat-ame knows to local sugar
men this week, . .
The eongesti of the trans-continental'
railroad business is given as the
reasoa for the ebaage of plans. At
first there was much speculation as to
bow the ship were to be provided for
moving the sugar east by the canal, but
this was explaiaed yesterday by well
informed Hoaolnlu shipping mea who
are seeping .n close touch with the
Intentions., of the aational shipping
lxard. ' . .. -1
Work of Ked Adams .
It is asserted that the shipping board
was iadneed to despatch the new steam
ers from the -northwest ship yards by
the way of Honolulu through sugges
tion mad by a former Honolulu resi
dent, Ned Adams, ths agent for Alex
ander A Baldwin and the htatsoa Navi
gation Company in Seattle aad Ta
coma. ' Up sstil about ten years ago
he was an employ ef the Alexander
ft Baldwin agency la, Honolulu.
Adams appreciated tbe need of ships
for the island trade and for moving
the 191S sugar crop, aad also knew that
the ships coming from the ways ef the
chip yards early this year were all in
tended for war use in the Atlantic. He
took up the question with the national
shipping board, showing how a profit
able cargo could be carried ou all of
the voyage to Nw York, If tbe trip
ws made . by the way of the islands,
nl how a need for shipping could be
supplied by the earns means.
Three Are Coming
Kvery indication is that bis tugges
tions hare beeaf adopted by tbe ship
ping board SS twe of the big new steam
ers arc already scheduled to leave Na
naiaio, British Columbia, with coal ear
goes for Honolulu. ! Information ha
also beea seat here that these pteainers
are to be given sugar cargo for eastern
delivery. Three of the steamers which
are scheduled to come to Honolulu sooa
with coal cargoes from Naaaimo, Brit
ish Colombia, are the Boston, Sacra
mento and Absaroka.. The first is a
small steamer of 2000 tons rapacity and
it is aot definitely known that the ves
sel is to take sugar cargo by the way
of the canal,, although instructions to
load the other for this voyage have
been received. '
No details he Iteen received yet
as to th Sacramento, excepting that
hhe is to be given sn eastern sugar
cargo and that her carrying capacity
is about 0000 tons. Due to her sir.e she
