Alleged Improvements to Account
for the Deficit. But Stockholders
Will Not Ac- '
The sensation of the week on the
streets for a few days past has been
the peculiar sommersanlt of the management
of the Oahu Sugar Company.
Two months or a trifle more ago the
board of directors announced that
thencefordward a dividend of five pr
cent, bi-monthly, would be declared.
In view of a good thing the stock advanced,
on June 15, for instance, lo
The first dividend was paid and the
next was passed.
That's what troubles the street. With
the non-payment of the dividend down
went the stock to 160, a dead drop of
o tx sum c
That's not much, perhaps, to the
very rich holders of the stock, who
have paid up and hold it as an investment
and are "on the inside," but
it's hard on the casual investor, who
had a right to suppose that so honorable
a board of directors knew at
least enough of their business to know
whether or not they could look ahead
for at least two months. They either
did not know that, or they deliberately
deceived the investors. The result
either way is the same to the latter;
$2S a share has been lost to them by
a directory lie.
How can any man be blamed for con
sidering the resolution of June and
the collapse of August anything but a
It has all the ear marks of such
transactions, an dthere is no redeeming
True, the representatives of
& Co., the agents for the Oahu
Company, make a plausible explanation.
They say that fifty miles of
ditches and twenty-seven reservoirs,
holding 600.000,000 gallons of water,
have been built; that the land up the
peninsula, demanding six miles of
track, was added, and this required
engineers and all that This means
that immense improvements have been
made. That this means all of the $600.-000
that would have been declared;
that all this money was spent in betterments.
Perhaps no one questions these facts,
but they naturally say, why didn't the
directors know two months ago that
they could not make these improvements
and at the same time pay the
promised dividend. Indeed, there are
lot of people who think they have
been swindled, but the honorable gentlemen
of the board of directors may
be able to convince them to the contrary.
The Oahu is undoubtedly a very rich
corporation. It has just begun to realize
on its investment It has been gathering
its first crop. Nature, good management
exceptionally fine engineering
has helped it. Its stock is in all
probability worth $200, but that Is no
reason why the board of directors
should mislead the street
It is hinted that the plant should be
bonded for $600,000 to pay the dividend
promised, buy real investors and
thoughtful men say this would be borrowing
from Paul to pay Peter. Ergo
Hold vour stock and realize.
FOREMAN OF GRAND JURY.
Successful Business Man Who Began
Life as a Farmer.
H. E. Waity the foreman of the.first
Grand Jury, was born iu Iroquois
County, Illinois, a little more than fifty
years ago. His parents were farmer?,
and they wished their son to follow in
their footsteps but farm life was irksome
to the lad and he longed for a
battle in the large world of business.
His mother died when he was eighteen.
Shortly after that the youug man
started for West field College, which is
situated in Westfield, Illinois.
Although college life was a great improvement
over the dull farm life at
me, Mr. Waity soon left college to
enter business. He found employment
as a clerk in a general store in an
town. He set himself to work
with so much diligence that promotion
was rapid, and before long he became
book-keeper and cashier.
After serving there for a few years
he accepted a position as traveling acent
for the Grain and Anthrosite Coal Co,
of Chicago, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri ana
Indiana being his district.
In 1SS7 Mr. Waity left Illinois for the
State of Washington, where he entered
the banking business in New Whatcom
on Puget Sound, being as successful in
this as he had been in other lines of
business. In 1S&4 he removed to Honolulu,
becoming a prominent member of
the house of Bishop and Coni-
nanv. of which he is now the Vice-!
When asked last evening whether he
had ever been impaneled on a Grand
Jury before Mr. Waity answered, "Xo.
have served on a petit jury, quite a
number of times but I have never before
served on a Grand Jury.
PAT.ATWA PUMPING STATION.
May Be Ten Days Before It Gets
Into Perfect Operation.
The work on the Palama pumping
station is almost completed. The
pump itself is now ready for work, but
the carpeuters and plasterers are still
at work in the engine room, putting
the finishinc touches on the plant.
Fires were started underneath the
boiler today, so that things might dry
up a little." It is hoped that the pump
will be at work by the end of the week
The fires which were started yesterday
are simply for drying upand tightening
all the pumps; the engine will be
tried in the same way from day to day,
and it may be a week before the great
machine may be set to work in real
