eger.from Hawaii and wool from Aue-1
tralia. Now, apparently those plana, if
he ever had them, have fallen down.
Hatter- at Traaaportatioa
Thua the situation which has eoeH
fronted Hawaii haa been an absence of
any shipping to carry raw sugar to tha
Atlaatie Coast refineries on the one
baad' and ' a freight congestion with
rail traaeportation of the Hawaiia
raw . product from the Pacific to the
Atlantic alow and uncertain aa well as
very costly.- Hemething must be done
and it la reported, the Sugar Faqtors
Company is decking relief though
whether the suggestion of. practically
doing away with Eastern shipments of
raw came) from the Hugar. Factors or
f rota the mainland haa not been told.
Que. thing seams oertaia aad that is
that the Eastern refiners will not like
the proposed arrangement. They have
beea clamoring for more augar to meet
their engagement. They, had contracts
for the Hawaii- outturn about as they
usually have received it, but they could
noi get it. When the shortage in the
- Eaait raa acute and the eugar eamaiit-
tfse up, the, feod adauniatration had
recently been appointed the com
mi t fee was freely charged by the East.
- them; and- in favor of the Western re
.fineries.
May. Effect Saving
On tha face of the proposed arrange
saeat it would appear to effect a large
aavinga ia freight for the Island pre
date a for, eveav going by . water, to the
astv there wa a difference of more
' tha f 10 a ton. If the Planters re
ceive tha same price they are now re
ceiving and ail of the outturn eoqld be
handled bv the Paeifle Coast reaneries
there, would' be a saving of betweea a
million aad a half aad two millioaa of
rtollara over Ute shipment of sugar te
tbe Esst if it went by water and more
the Coast - and thence by rail.
Bight" there com the. "if". How
about distribution of the reflued prod
net. . About three and a half million
poupds'of sugar would, ordinarily go to
the Eastern refineries and be distribu
ted by- them to Eastern point. Tbe
eapply must- reach the East and if it
does not go as raw sugar it will have t
.. go, aa refined. Will the producers of
the saw be. -asked to Imar the coat of
that transportation t In other words,
will they receive a lower price at tbe
' Pacific Coast refineries because a part

aad sane management of the affaire
of the company which, reporta show,

fly in. the ointment is Inability to move
the outturn of the mill, a condition like
the one which exmis here but whieh-ia
more aggravated.
iriea Carlos Milling Company haa on

raw'sogar but it run Ret no veasels to
move it. The same condition prevaila
throughout the Philippine lalanda.
Hugar growers are urging and beseech

have urged and besought in vain. They
have been to the ahipping board aad it
haa nothing to offer them. They have
appealed for the -uro space of trans

that.
Haa Carlos is prosperous and has
funds to go uheud with its business but
if those funds were utilised to pay

Plantation laborers may be exper.te4
to play a big part in the taking of Ha
'a quota of War Bavings and Thri&!ft ;ly
Rtamps. Hardly baa the Liberty Bond
Drive closed before the war savings
.committee has started ita campaign, or
rather revived it, for it waa allowed to
rent during the Bond Drive.
There la a plantation committee con
nected with the) war savings committee
and it ia headed by John Guile as chair
man. That committee baa issued, a cini
ktohrr letter. whicV haa bea- eent to
every plantation manager ': and every
store keener on the plantationa of the
Islands.
In part thia letter dated April 29,
says:
' The people of Hawaii have recently

CHinpaiga for the sale of theee stamps.
The War Havings ami Thrift Stamps
are in the nature of a loan to tbe gov
ern ment and they are also a aplendid
investment for the individual. They'
were devised not only for tha purpose
of providing the government with
money to carry on the war, but also
for the purpose of filling a long-felt
need for a small, . aafe yivestment with
a gooil interest return'; und they, teach

"Home of the plantation managers
have alrcndy put into effect a campaign ,
among their employes of a more' or
leas coiiiprehensivo nature and it is
hoM!d by the committee that these ef
forts will be continued and extended
so as to arouse as much enthusiasm and,
interest un possible. To those looking.,

adopted any particular plan.
Tlen follows several suggestions -lis
te methoils to be employed, those tbt
plantation managers have already found,
successful.
In closing the letter aays:
"The committee appreciates greatly
the fine work that has been done op.,
the different plantations by managers,
storekeepers ami others in pushing the
sale of War Kkvings and Thrift Stamps
and desires to assist them hv havi'nirJ

"We have the balance of the year be

in our power to speed up the work so,
that v.heu the campaign comes te an,

"In conclusion, the committee invites,

Plantation Heads Said to Like
Invention and To Be Ready
T6 Place Orders
Steel wheela to replace the Iron
wheels on plantation cars is not only
a possibility but an early probability.
Already a number of plantation heads
have looked into the matter, it is said,
and consider the change practicable and
desirable. This type of wheel haa beea
presented) to their attent&ra bvJ. W.
iSenbam, president at, the Standard
Rteel Wheel Company, now in the Isl-
"ds to esUbliah a branch here.
. pressed steel disc, a hub with lug to
fit the corrugations. For cars it is
surrounded by a band to fit the rail.
For automobiles instead of. the band
there is a rim. It is of pressed steel
and some idea of its compression can
be found from the fact that a center
hole of uine inches is reduced to four
inches under the pressure.
Por this wheel it is claimed that it
costs only half of what the olif type
of iron wheel costs and wears better, is
practically indestructible and makes a
flat wheel iinpoillc. It ia heuce a
saving ia original cost, upkeep and re
placement. Mr. Beiihaiii says that thus far he
hns not solit to place any orders for
the wheel with plantationa but has
merely culled Its possibilities to atten
tion. At present t ho factory is or) the
Atlantic coast mid he has awaited tbe
establishment of the proposed plant at
Stockton before going after actual busi
ness here.
This wheel has been recommended to
the government us an automobile wheel
by several experts among whom was
Colonel Aiuweg, recollected here for
the work which he itid at Pearl Harbor.
Thua fur the company has had no
trouble in securing all necessary, steel.
It expects the government will adopt
the wheel as a standard for war trans
portation vehicles because it can be
fairly riddled by bullets and yet not
be weakened. If it ia so adopted the
company will certainly be attfured of
the steel which it requires.
Mr. Pen ham says order have been
offered him by pluntatiou companies but
pending- the completion kf the new
plant he has declined to accept them.
JAPANllSlB
A Japanese laborer, whoae identity
the police could not learn, was killed
in a landslide yesteraay afternoon at
Makiki Heights, when a section of
bank gave way and buried him for a
)criod of more than three hours.
In company with another Japanese,
the man who was killed, was loading
a dray under an overhanging bank of
black sand. Without any warning, tbe
bank gave away and burieU one of- tbe
workers nd the other escaped.
X hurry call was sent to the police
station at two o'clock and tbe ambu
lance aud the patrol wagon loaded with
trusties were sent to the scene of the
accident. After digging until nearly
aix o'clock the Japanese was finally
reached "but life was found to have been
extinct for several hours. It is

April Crop Figures
Will Not Make
Material; Increases
Conditions Have Not Been Such
As To.FuIfiil Hope That Second
. Estimate Would Be More Sat
isfactory Than Preliminary';
Not all of the revised erop estimates
of the various planations have been
received by the ageaelea so that it is
not yet possible to give the present es
timate of the total sugar outturn of
tbe Islands, but sufficient figures have
been received to make it elear that
there, will . probably be no important
increases over the preliminary ' esti
mates JPeeemtoer ' estimates for ths coming
erop Indicated that it would be ma-
j . said that it was possible that Im
proved conditions later would result la
some increase but the weather haa not
beea such thus far as to bear out such
hopes. In some sections the winter waa
abnormally wet and tbe temperature
waa below the normal so there was not
the development of sucrose content that
had been, hoped. This will be shown in
tbe revised- estimates that are always
made out ia April and from which there
la usually little variation at tbe end
of the year. SWben these estimates are
made public, if they are given out by
the- plantation agencies ad, seriatim,
which was aot the ease with the ear
lier estimates, some Interesting figures
erill result' A comparison would be
still more interesting for in instances
where it was expected there would be
decreases there have, in some cases,
been -some considerable increases while
where inereasee were hoped for they
have wot generally appeared.
Thia erop haa been a hard one to fore
cast and is so right up to now. With
good growing summer weather the suc
rose content, ' where it is now low,
msy show ; an Increase and somewhat
tnerMMB WJwtevtned - estimate but it is
doubtful. H, all the' way around, there
will b any Urge, increase over the 6J
urea that are aow being compiled.
April figure will not be likely to
bring the 1018 estimste much if any
above 575,000 tona If it reaches that
figure. The total will likely have been
compiled before the end of another
week.

C. If. Worse Thinks Amount Ready
For Shiprrient Is 50,000 !
Tons Above Normal v
While sugar continues to accumulate
in plantation warehouses aud on terri
torial' piers, C. P. Morse, the local ship
ping board representative, expresses
confidence the government will Aud a
means to move it to the refineries oo
1 the mainland. 0
Sevebty five thousand tons is his es
timate of the amount of sugar ready
for shipment, which he thinks is about
50,000 tons more than normal. Here
tofore, he says, 29,000 toua or about
three big steamer loads, was all that
usuailv accumulated in the Islands be
I fore shipment.

g bourd man bolieves that
while the sugar congestion may con
tinue for some time, all the Hawaii erop
will be moved within the year. He
explains that the eastern refinery needs
1 fere being supplied to some extent now
try Cuban and Porto Kicnu augers, and
that up to October aud November the
need for the Hawaii crop may not be
urgent enough as to cause the govern
ment to -divert any more vessels to this
service than are now in use.
His estimate of the amount of sugar
in the Islands is not based on official
I reports, aa those for April have not
'been received., Tbe estimate of tbe
I shipping board man is about fifteen
thousand tons larger than that of en-
other shipping man, given a week ago.
