SUGAR BONUSES FOR 1917
ESTIMATED AT $7,000,000
,F THE nrpsent Drice of suear in the
the end of this month. Hawaii plantation laborers will receive a bonus ofilv
6Vi per cent of their monthly wages for tne twelve months from Novem
ber 1. 1916, to October 1, 1917.
This is the result of advance calculations made by Royal D. Mead,
statistician for the Hawaiian Planters' Association, and staff.
Up to the beginning of this month the average price received for Ha
waiian raws for the past 11 months has been $6,023 per hundred. With sugar
at $6 per hundred the bonus given laborers amounts to 73 per cent, and
there is very little prospect of the price for this month dropping below this
figure, as the last New York quotation, on which the bonus is figured, was
Sfi 90 a hundred.

SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Oct. 20. There wilf be no ship
ments received for export of freight to Honolulu and the
Orient until the congestion in San Francisco railroad yards
(is relieved. Such was the announcement today of the Southern
j Pacific and Santa Fe railroads, following a similar action by;
j the Western Pacific Railroad. The embargo while temporary
;is expected to be in force for at least two weeks, perhaps longer
depending on how fast railroad cars can be rushed here from
the east to take care of the, thousands of tons of freight from'

No Serious Effect
While the foregoing despatch means
that shipments for the East from Ho
nolulu will not be accepted by the
three railways named, for export to
Honolulu, it does not mean that the
freight ' in San Francisco '"awaiting
shipment here will be necessarily de
layed any protracted length of time.
This freight already on hand will
move along as soon as. steamer space
can accommodate it, but in the mean
time no more Eastern shipments for

of the Ecuador in the island freight
carrying service as announced yester
day by the federal shipping board will
do much to relieve this congestion.
A very optimistic interpretation of
the foregoing-despatch was given this
afternoon by II. E. Vernon, local gen
eral agent for the Sante Fe system.'
"As'far as Honolulu is concerned,"
he says, "there is no serious conges
tion of freight at San Francisco, but
shipments -. for the Orient, which in
clude Russian supplies, doubtless may
be temporarily delayed awaiting ves
sel space.

The very lowest day wages paid a

Laborers paid at this rate will re
