SUGAR EXPORTS '''Wiiwii I UlMH H.'itV 213,640 Tons of Product from i) Philippines for U S. and MANILA.- 4arget amount of sugar in the history of the Philip pines since the' American occupation was exported during the fiscal year 1913 just closed, namely 213,540 tons, valued at 18,993,080 pesos. Notwith standing the' big shipments during the year, which were greater by , 27,524 tons than during fiscal year 1912, the value of the sugar) exported shows a marked decrease, being 1.818,070 pesos less than in 1912. in fact the average price per ton for the sugar exported during fiscal year 1913, which was 38. 90 pesos, is the lowest on record since 1909: " v-'. ;. v . -r ;: During the closing months of the fiscal year 1912 there was an unusual inactivity In the local sugar .trade, aue to the fact that large stocks were being held in warehouses awaiting an anticipated rise in price. To a great extent these stocks were disposed of during the opening months of the fis cal year 1913 and it Is due principally to this fact that the exports of sugar during the year just closed have been the greatest In history. Another. Interesting fact noted In the shipments . of sugar during - the fiscal year Just closed is that the ma jority of the sugar exported went ' to countries - other than the . United btates. Heretofore the United States nas offered a Higher price for our sugar, and consequently the greater majority of this product exported went to the homeland. During the fiscal year. 1912 a slight Increase was noted In the shipments to countries other than the United States, but as the production in 1912 was greater than In 1811, no great attention., wad paid to this Increase. During both the fiscal year 1911 and 1912, 86 per" cent of all sugar exported went to the United States. Including Hawaii, this year only 83,976 tons, valned at. 7.979. 230 pesos, or only 39 per cent of the total; found its destination In the homeland, a decrease of 47 per cent, TONE mmm i r i .ti ii - A better tone to the market, par ticularly In the last day or two, has been felt in the sugar market this week. Better prices for sugar,' as giv en in New York, is undoubtedly re sponsible, partially at least, for the gains made in several stocks. : The volume of business is increasing, and buyers are coming out of their ob scurity and placing orders.. . f.: t " The. gains In the stocks have not beeq. spectacular, and. some of them have been but slight The two note worthy Instances - where they r have been marked and' probably substan tial are found in Hawaiian Commer cial and Oahu, the former beginning to pick up at the first of the week. the latter on Friday,- .Other stock have beeri carried along on the : same advancing wave.-to some extent, and though their betterment in all cases Is. not evidenced by sales, holders are demanding; stronger prices for them. .. -v m j T ft t uu Aiouaay, nawaiian; tummtrtiai scored a point gain in a sale of shares and the day following 700 shares of the same company changed hands at 27.23, i which was the biggest deal of the week.
