to the figures furnished by the planta-
tloa agencies to the repreaeniattva or f
tha ahipplng. board there' was 80,000
tona ot sugar awaiting shipateat bat t,
:. ' thia there was comparatively tattle la
storage at Joading point. Taking tkeae
figure, ia aconneetlon witk tka ship
asent figures the total production to
that date was 527,000 ton besides what
baa been ground and refined for local
eonaumptioa by the Honolula Planta
tion. This would leave only about 36,
000 ton at that date a. the further
ad late production.
Bblppen Kept Busy
- t baa now become tometbiag ot a
. problem to keep the sugar moving to
' loading points fast enough to meet the.
atenmera that are readv . to earrv it

houae at various plan.tatioas to a great
and the rest in tran.it. The
amount nt the shipping point ia com
paratively aegtitfible. At HUo for in
atnce there is little and it ia estimated
that tke plantations shipping from
ther have only about 10,000 ton still
to, go. In Honolulu there is almost none
1a atorehouces and the same condition
is reported from Kahului.
Beptember exeecdod past records by
about iS,000 tons and the movements
are now progressing at the rate of 100,
00Q tons a month. The amount on
baad indicates that this cannpt long
continue and that the end of the ship-
eiog. yn,ur ia at hand,
tverted To East
Of the 102,000 tons acnt last month
about 150.000 tons was diverted from
west to rust. This sugsr was ladened
on steamers that had been chartered
for one trip to the Coast but arrange
ments were made to send them through
the canal to Atlantic porta. It was
womiaed after Julv 1 that there would
he shioiierl about 05.000 tons to Atlan
tie refineries so ft is evident that there
atill will have to be a considerable
amount go to the Kast.
In this respect the planter have
been fortunate far earlier iadleations
wore that whaf went East would have
to go from the Pacific Coast overland,
tkna adding largely to the eost of ship
ments. Pastern shipments are more
coatly to the planter and the returns
correnspooitinglv reduced tnit to get
tho shipments through ail water makes
tho arrangement far more satisfactory
thaa it could otherwise be.
Canoed Pinna Going
Just at present, and more so from
now on, the canned pines .that wait
ahipplng are making the situation eas
ier to meet far the planters for it is
Impoasible under present labor condi
tions to speed up production. The cn
nera have been clammorihg for shipping
apaee as did the. sugar plaater aad
tho shipping board, rising to the occa
ajon, is giving the Islands more freight
communication between hero and the
mainland than wa ever befer enjoyed..

These offers have beea given serious
consideration. Thetme obstacle to

American tonnage to ajiove them, and
th prohibitive freight rate asked by

these obstacles bjd fair to be removed

I everr reason to believe that the

If the above plan goes through the

ond quarter of this, year, naniely,' April
1 to June 30. A indicated by thoae,
figures, the consumption rate for this

over that recorded for the first quarter,

niuiutaiii ..for the last half of the vear
would bring the yearly consumption
rule up to 90 pounds, or soven pounds
higher than the 1917 yearly rate of

the consumption rate for the balance,
of he year would be a speculative one,
us the amount of sugar the pubfic

1 can only be determined whin the
end of the year ia reavbqd.

Bo far as can be .loarubt), this pro

not as yet been definitely settled, nor
hiis the sugar equllizatiou board made
any purchases of thorn as yet, but It
is safe to say that there is every reu
son to believe it will go through.
These sugars, It la estimated tiy the
