TTHE iVssociated Press report that the international sugar

oif 6.90 cents r p
satisfaction -by Hawaii sugar planters today. -' Should this
price -prevail during.; the war it will mean that "based on an
approximate? output vof ; the 1918 crop of. 600,000 tons Hawaii
planters will feceivfe in sthe neighborhood of $84000,000,; the
highest :t6tat for any year's crop an the history' of theG island
sugar business.;
The .news; however came as a great
feurprise . to A.v M. NQwelt,.aecretary . of
the Sugar Factors Company In fict it
Is such a -surprise ; that;- Secretary
KTowell cannot bring himself 'to a; full
realization, that It.i isv true.:;?. Never
theleas he hopes so. ' But in the face of
the official decision of the food administration-
a,, month ago that the maxi
mn'nvbasls for' refined F. O.-B. Atlan
tic seaports was to be -7.23 cents, he"
declares he cannot see' how the food
commission 'has '.; consented -lo 's'acp 'a
radical; increase inlhe price ..basis' i un
1r" It hftilhat- th: influence of th
Cuban jilanters j who ' control ".the mar1
ket, .was" so great ar to force such & i
concession -from the American : board.
y Persons eln touch 'with the-sugar in
dOstry have known for the past month
that the Cuban" planters were dlfsatia
fiedvith - the 7.25 maximum, -which,
cents for; their product." With - the
food- commission's .figure of 1.30 mar
gin ;( between - the - raw v . and refined
basis, the price under the original fig
ure' for domestic raws was,! placed at
5.95,; a,s announced1 In the Star-Bulletin
receaUy. t - .
? But-"- rtrong pressure Vhas " been
brought to bear by the .Cuban planters
for .6-cent sugar; and if the domestic
price has been set at 6.90. it is a direct
concession to the Cuban market of 1
cent; a "pound,' which r'also grants - the
domestic producers a similar increase.
In other; words it grants the- Cuban
planters, a price of ' 5.50 at Cuban
ports. V,' - ' -'
- On this basis the'maxlmnm for re
fined would advance to SO cents, al
lowing a margin of 1.30 between raw
and refined price, and it is almost
certain that the refiners ;will Insist ion
their ;10 margin.' . - ; - "x

Tomorrow is a " red-letter1 day in the history of Hawaii.
It is Draft Day; Beginning at 9 a. m. the drawing of the cap
sules, each containing a selective draft number that will call
to-Uncle Sam's servicq the ' man allotted 4hV corresponding
serial number, will begin at the executive building. Naturally
every registrant will, be eager to know whether he is called to
the service: The Star-Bulletin will furnish its readers' tho
information. x ; ;';:':! V V . .. ' i -; . '7 - "V L'i--''---,
The first edition at 2:30 will contain all.the names drawn
up to '2 o'clock, the 3:30 edition all the names drawn np to 3
o'clock, and as the drawing probably will not be finished beforo
4:30 or 5 o'clock, the Star-Bulletin will issue a Draft Extra at
5 or 5:30 o'clock so that its readers may know who are called.

drawn, out is in position to surmount, the mechanical difficul
ties involved in the feat of publishing the names of the thou
sands men drawn.,' ".. ' : ' -i-'J:y.

PROMPTLY-at the stroke of 9 tomorrow morning. Governor Pinkham will
draw the first capsule in Hawaii's portion of the military draft Every
detail of the big job that has been necessary to preparejhis territory for
the drawing has been finished and today Major F. J. Green and his corps
of assistants breathed easily. It has been a constant task of some thres
months duration. '. ; ' ' . ; ' . , -5, '-yy.
- Governor Pinkham will not be blind
folded, nor will the- Boy Scouts that
have (been selected for the drawing.
This is not deemed necessary as the
numbers themselves are enclosed In
gelatin capsules. The number that
Governor Pinkham draws tomorrow
will decide the first man In each5 of
the six' districts to be summoned.
This will decide six men, of course,
unl8s' it happens to be too large to
Include all of the districts. Some of
them do not have serial numbers run
ning as high as others.; The second
district on Hawaii, for example, has
1738 If the serial -number 2000 should
hA drawn first : It would Hot; Include
any man fronv that portion of Hawaii.
On the other hand If 150 were drawn
;irst it would Include all six of the
istricts. V "it '"'':H'V '
