End Seems In Sight On Hawaii
, But No Rains of Importance
.Have Been Reported As Occiir
1 ' ring purin. Present vyeejc s
"Indications continui? to point to th
breaking of the drought on Hawaii al
though no Important rains nave been
repotted "since last Saturday. On the
other bead dry conditions continue on
Maiii. Indeed it bss now some to the,
stsfc-e where nlsntation manajsrs on the
Valley ,a)e do not comment oa drought
conditions bat merely close their let
ters with the brief sentences "weather
continues dry." -
From the Hamakna roast there have
some no further reports of rain this
week either to JTlonokss or Tacifle Mill
or xo any of the other agencies (n
UonoluJu. There have been further
rains in on4 about HUo and for a lit
tle way north and noiae rains In other
parts of the inland. , '. .
Olsa naa Va4 no report on rainfall
but has had a report that there was
a further Wesse in the water run
ning through the flumes. There Itqi
remains a need of several inches' of
wster, however, before fuming to. the
mill can be resumed,
. All plantation agencies are hoping
that the drought 'on Hawaii is really
broken but the break is coming so
gradually that they cannot feel eertain
H la yet here. On Maul, however,
there is no doubt, the dtenght i( tUl
on and is oa in full-force. The best
reports received say" thorn is a little
more water running thj-ough the ditcn-
VThat the loss to Hawaii and Maul
will be is as yet. problematical and
will be so until the December reports
are issued and eomparisoas can be
made but a representative of one of
the plantation agencies' yesterday esti
mated the losses in Hamakua will be
about sixty-seven percent, parts Of
North Bilo and North Khala ns high
as that and other sections down to fifty
percsnt. ' In ot,b.ar : parts of Hawaii
be placed Josses at from one third io
one-fourth of the expected erop. On
Maid he estimated that the decrease
will be about fifty percent of the orig
inal estimate of erop for 1918.' His
estimate would make the banes in the
J918 erop nearer 150,000 tons than 100,
000 and he also estimates that the 1019
erop naa been badly damaged, that
neither year can be expected to any
where near approach, the 1917 erop, and
this despite the fact that Oahu and
Kauai nave had no adverse aeneUtions
to meet. . m , .Mi ..in

Arsenic and manganese' are normally
present in many species of plants, ac
cording to Jadin and Astrue, two
French investigators, the remUts "of
whose studies are' publiabed in 'w "re
cent volume of the KevuW gcienilnqfue.
. The arsenic is apparency associated
with the phosphorus in the plant' fells,
esjiecially in the green portions,' Hoots
and subterraoeAo organs contain very
little arsenic.
The amount of arsenic and managan
ese present in soils has little influence
on the quantity of these minerals ab
sorbed by growing plants they state.
The amount taken up is governed by
the requirements ' of the plants.
These authors conclude that both ar
senic and manganese are of the great
est . importance in the vegetable cell,
the managanese especially, being re
quired to effect oxygen transformations
within the living plant.' They also
state that where both these chemicals
occur in the bodies of animals, their
source is the vegetable food eaten by
the animals.

White sugar is quoted at around 3.75.

vTlie Agricultnral Bfiiorter, of Bar

dreaded drought was brokea June 20th

a good erop of sugar, It may run
up to ej.000 tons, which, however, is

It taken 210)00 pound of sugar a

consume. The same number of soldiers
require 1,101,200 pounds .of flour. ,:

Whether kt announced fixing of a

raid, for Cuban sugar means for the
balanse. tf the present crop or whether
it is to extend over to the next erop is
a matter of Interest and of disenasion
in local, sugar eiroles. Borne express
the belief that it applies merely to the
present erop and that the food admin
istration ha hardly consented to a full
cent increase, to. meet the' demand of .
Cuban planters.: '. ' . ,
On the other bend, there are those
who believe it will cover the 1018 crop
as well, and point to the fact that costs
of production have so increased and
will rise so much higher next year that
8.00 is only a fair and not a high price,
and that there are few Hawaiian plan
tations that' c,ould manufacture profit
ably for less. . .. . , , ;
Uncertainties Axis)
The, despatch received here announc
ing a change in price for raw Cuban
sugar said that 6.00 was the basis, duty
paid in New York, for 96 oentrifugal
sugar, and said that ratea to other
point a would be announced later. It
did not any that. Hawaiian, Louisiana
and Porto Rico sugar prices were in
creased to the same figure, and next
day came the announcement that the
Huirar Exchantre in New Orleana lia.t
closed pending more definite informa
tion as to price. It is ass timed that,
of course, there will be no discrimina
tion against the American industry. -But
there in evidently some uncertainty
and doubt or the New Orleans exchange
would not have elosed. ,'-',.
A. M. Nowell, secretary and manager
of the Sugar Factors Company, said
yesterday that be wanted more infor
mation on the new price for Cuban
sugar, but thought it probable that the
price of 6.90 cents was for the balance .
of this year's erop only. He did not
believe that the -, sugar . commission
would yield a full sent a pound on the
demand of Cuban planters, and . bad
thought that President Menocal was
getting the Cuban growers In line for ''
the 5.90 cent New York rate. : There
was certainly some uncertainty, or in
definiteness he thought, or the New Or
leans market' would not have . closed, :
Firs Pries Too Iow ' ' '-.'' ; '
" At 5.90 cents," said a well known
loeal agent yesterday, "there is a very
small margin of profit for ' Hawaiian
planters, and 6.90 eents is a Very fair
price. Everything' has gone up since
the war-everything . that the sugar
planter needs. Nitrates are 200 percent
higher than they were before the war,'
three times the price, and then there is
bo assurance that it will be. delivered.
Without it the crop would be dimin
ished fully halt.
'. Bags are three times the price they
formerly were, and so it is all along the
line, and the laborer gets seventy-three
percent ' more wages than in the days
before the war. There is a three per
cent tax on bills of lading. That is ,
added to our shipping eosts, and the
Cubans do not have it in their sugar.
This vent's war--profits tax will have
to be deducted from next year 'a earn
ing, and again the Cuban plantations
do not have that to meet.
Hlshar Next Year
"But there will be other increased
costs. Freights . are to go higher.
James A. Kennedy, of . the shipping
board, has said that the government ia
nqt getting for its freights on the Mat-,
son steamers what it pays to the Mat-'
son line and that it was to be expected
an increase to at least $0 a ton would
be made.
"The American-Hawaiian Company
was to have raised its rates and we are
led to believe the shipping board will
make a rate on such vessels as it may
furnish to at least $19 a ton from here
to New York. Sugar is going to net
less than a hundred dollars a ton in '
Hsn Frsppisco and only about eighty
five dollars in New York: on a 5.90 cent '
basis. From that must be deducted ;
eosts of growing, cutting and grinding,
with all eosts up. Where are the grow-'
ers here to get off at such price with
all expense higher than they were be
fore the war! There are a few that '
can manufacture profitably. Talk of
5.JI0 cjunts a pound being a good price
tot us under present conditions is far
from the fact.
"To get sugar in I-ouisiana to meet
the shortage in New York it wa neces
sary tp pay 6.30 cents. I am in hopes,
and I think it is the fact, that the su
gar eoiuwlssjun recognises that with
added costs , and taxes, first figures '
nnsned wcre.toq low."
California ia sending, a. megaphone
note across the continent saying that
this vast State haa exceeded all rec
ord ever attained before by producing
beet thi yeaf that tested 84.1 per ,
cent sugar content. The beets were
raised near Corcoran on a 4000-aere plot.
The crop is running from 10 to 13 tons
an acre. This 1 a most remarkable
record though the reader will note that
the tonnage is not. what California al
ways produces, but men have studied
the close correlation between quality
and quantity and know some of ti.
factors that reduce both and factors
that assist the bead as well as the
heart of the beet.
The Utah-Idaho Company is offering
prizes at the Utah State fair for the
best exhibits entered there of jams
and jellies and other preserve canned
with-beet, sugar. The competition is
keen and much Interest is being dis
played. V ,',, . J , iJi
