PRICE 5 CENTS ws Maui Pine Pack Reported Below Early Estimate Outturn Approximately 875, 000 Cases; Product Next Year Will Be Much Greater, Planters Believe Estimates of the Maui pineapple pack of next year are considerably lower than the estimate made for them by the various companies a year ago. Figures from the three compan ies place the outturn about 875,000 cases. These estimates are regarded as conservative as both Haiku and Pauwela" have profited by their ex perience with the last crop and recog nize that the heavy rains of early this year followed by five months of dt ought have affected the next crop as such conditions affected the pro ' ductlon of this year. Damage Still Felt In the Haiku district the heavy rains of January and February wash ed away the surface soil and damaged many fields of plants. Then followed live months of drought with a result that the average run of fruit was much smaller In addition to the fact that some fields had to bo replanted in whole or in part. Numbers of Jap anese contractors became frightened and threw up their contracts but in most instances It was possible for the companies to harvest the crop for the cost. .This year Haiku Fruit Co., has passed the 600,000 mark in its pack. Under normal conditions an outturn of 750,000 cases might well be ex pected this year but Manager Tava les said Wednesday that he was plac ing the figures conservatively at 550, 000 cases. Pauwela Gives Figures Pauwela Pineapple Company suffer ed from the rains and subsequent drought as did its larger neighbor. us prouuciion leu on consequently this year but Is expected to pass 170,000 cases. Manager Worth Aiken places his estimate of the next crop low but has high hopes of going well over it when he says 175,000 cases. Kahakuloa lands do not enter into the figures of Pauwela Pineapple this year but will next. In the same way no Hana production is figured by Haiku Fruit Company from Hana this year. Baldwin Packers Output No official statement has been is sued as "yet by the Daldwln Packers, but the output will be In excess of 150,000 cases. This figure is below the outturn of a year ago and will, it is stated, be overreached by the production of the ensuing year.

Haiku Fruit Co. Increases Stock Hana Project Is Taken Care of And That District Is Ex pected To Turn Out 100, 000 Cases In 1924. Stockholders of Haiku Fruit Com pany met Monday and voted to In crease the capital stock of the com pany from $1,000,000 to $1,500,000, the Increase being for the handling of the extension of business of the company Into the Hana district.

A. Drummond and the equipment and livestock turned in by him, which leases and property now go to the Haiku fruit Company. Cash is paid for the Kipahulu Plantation property that was purchased from the Fassoths. It Is learned from Manager A. F. Tavares of the Haiku Fruit Company that construction of a cannery at Hai ku will start in the near future so as to be ready for the handling of the 1924 crop. The cannery will be so built that it can bo extended as oc casion demands until it has a capacity of 500,000 cases though that capacity will not be reached for several years.
