Preliminary Estimates For $hip
. ping Purposes Made At Bad
Time Indicate Shortage
Probably thp .Smallest Outturn
Islands Have Known In Past
Six Years of Sugar
. Nit year's sugar crop, will b a
terialljr entailer than tbia year's, sad it
. is probable that it will be the smallest
sine 1910. . This ha been forecast for
the past few month,, ever since the
, drought became' serious oa Maul and
llawsii, bat other Influence have also
been at work and it ia certain that the
crop, as a whole, Is to be a disappoint-
.meet. The shortage has been variously
estimated, sometimes being placed at a
hundred thousand tons below the 1917
cropj and it is even likely that it will
be even smaller than that. . In 1910 the
. outturn was 517,000 tons, and it la net
bqlieved that the production for the
coming year will fall below that figure.
Early Shipping Estlmataa V
1'rellmlaary estimates, made testa
.titcly for the purpose of determining
how much shipping space will be re
quired by the various plantations, are
being sent la to the various agencies by
the managers. These show in various
instances crops far . below , those that
have just been ground. In the in
stances that will be here cited the esti
mates were made at aa - especially bad
time, toward the end of October and be
fore the drought was really broken on
Hawaii and Maui. It is probable,
therefore, that the managers have lean
ed toward the aide of conservatism and
It la likely that in a number of in
stances, providing conditions continue
.favorable from now on, that these early
estimates - will be considerably sur
passed. ;'..- t- : r- ....

the drought The damage there was
'.variously estimated and generally over
estimated, for the manager gives pre
liminary figures of 12,500 toas, about
500 tons below 1917. .
Hawaii Is Hard Hit
On Hawaii nearly all the estimates
. show smaller crops to bo expected, in
the list that was secured, yesterday
from Brewer A Co. Onomea ia pat at
,17,000 for these- preliminary shipping
arrangements, about 4000 . ton under
the last crop.' ' fepeekeo shows a fall'
ing off of 2000 tons to 8400; Honomu of
100 to 7700 tons; Hawaii Mill, 1100 to
500; Hutchinson, 1000 to flUOO tons;
l'aauhau, adjacent to the; aeverely af
flicted drought districts, falls 4500 tons
to 0200; Hakalau, 2700 tons to 13,400,
and Hilo, 1800 tons to 14,000. ...V
' On -Kauai there is aa estimated fall
ing off at Kailua of 1000 tons to a total
Of -47HO.
On Maui, Olowslu ia reduced 40 to
ft total of 1700, and on Oahn, Waima
nalo is eut 700 tons t9 4000.
Two Hold Their Own
' Two plantations give the 1917 crop)
as a 1918 estimate Hawaiian Agricul
tural Company and Honolulu Planta
tion 17,000 and 19,000 tons respect
ively. . -
'; These plantation give a fairly gt 1
idea of what may be rxtiected ia the
. way of estimates on next year 'a crop
on plantations in the same districts,
and if the others run along the earns
line an estimated reduction of ft hun
dred thousand tans will be too small.
Here are fourteen plantations which
last year .produced 155,500 tons of
sugar and are expected, on the possibly
, too conservative basis given above, to
produce in the - coming season 23,350
; tons lest than last year.
Others Lose likewise
. There are other plantations that have
been more seriously affected by bad
conditions thsn have these.' Honokaa
. and Pacific Mill are instances of tbia,
ud ia the three upper districts of Ha-
' waii most of the plaatations have been
as' seriously or more seriously damaged
than the plantations on Hawaii men
tinned above in this article.
Tut ia dollars and cents the loss that
lias occurred by reason of the adverse
, conditions of the past season can be
, more clearly seen. At six cent sugar
will mean ft return of 412,000,000 leu
than last year 'a erop would have
brought at the same price.

New Sugar Price

llinier Six Cents
Cuban Price With Freight. Insur
ance and Duty Added Is Evi
dently, Basis and Equalization
of Price Goes Forward
Cabled quotations of the price for
Hawaiian sugar received yesterday
morning by the I'lanters' Association
gave the figures as 5.92. Since Amo
ciated Press despatches had told of an
Increase Of ten cents ft hundred in the
wholesale priro of beet sugsr some had
expected that the quotation for Ha
waiian cane raws would be higher. It
is evident, however, that the price of
5.92 was fixed by the sugar commis
sions. In figuring on the newly announced
siigar price it would appear that it has
been arrived at from a. basis previously
announced for Cuban taws. That basis
was 14.60 ft hundred f.o.b. Cuba, thirty
cents for freight and an added cost for
marine insurance. The differential, be
cause of duty is 1.0048 which would
make the cost of niarimi insurance
something less than two rents a hun
dred pounds. .-'
' Here the impression prevails that
there may be some little fluctuations in
price owing to ft varying freight rate
between Cuba and the I'nited States.
Now that freight is figured at a to.,
while ft few months: sgo, when there
were rumors of the submarine warfare
being carried into Atlantic coastwise
waters, the rate was I2. Huch a rate
would make ft difference of thirty cents
a hundred on New York prices for Cu
ban raws and ft consequent stabilizing
rise of the same amount in the price
for Hawaiian raws. v
It is believed here that the reported
ten rents rise in beet sugar is a dis
trict affair, done by the sugar commis
sions ia nn effort a't prire-wualizatiou.
The country was divided into two sones
to bring about this gradual adjUHtment
nil thus far little beet sugar has reach
ed the Eastern none. Home did reach
the New York market ia an effort to
alleviate the sugar famine in the Kast.
As yet but little Cuban sugar has reach
ed the market and the Louisiana crop,
smaller than expected, has been some
what held back also. In the fare of
this, and with no cane competition,
there has been n 'op in the trice' of
reBned ia New York. Eastern- beet
sugar waa somewhat late but ia now
reported as moving and the Cubaa crop
ia exjiected to be moving soon. An ad
justment of ten rents on Eastern beet
would therefore seem to have been a
matter of fairness to briug about a
eloser equalisation of beet and cane
prices in the East.

Vessel Now In Port Which Was
Expected To Take Big Cargo
May Be Requisitioned
It now appears possible thst the last
of the 117 crop and the first of the
19IS crop may not leave the Islands
so soon as has been expected. Plans
had been made for the shipment of
7500 tons at an early dnte in a steam
er that is now in port, hnving arrived
with a cargo of coal. This stosmer may
ie utilised in whole or in part by the
government, It WAs learned yesterday.
In consideration of the use of such
steamer, she has been nienfiire.l, at the
request of the government, and the
possibility Of her uel; is still under con
sideration. Shippers yes'erday were
hoping thst at least enough space to
carrj tin rant of the old crop could be
spared in ease the government did find
need of her service.' fhe hud been
sent over with the idea of taking away
a. full cargo- and arrangement made
arrordingly by the shippers.
No more definite information as to
what ' bottoms may be made available
for the movement of the 1918 crop has
been received- locally. The fact that
the government hns recently requisi
tioned ' number of . vessels on arrival
here has not. been encouraging and with
grinding already 'commenced in ft som
ber of mills there has been an increase
in the sense of anxiety which has been
more or less manifest since the com
mandeering of the Matson liners. The
hie and belief still prevails that ways
and menns will be found by the food
administration and the shipping board
but urgent government necessities in
other lines may result in a considerable
delay in the getting away of the crop,
at the outset at least.
Local Refinery Allowed To Raise
Stocks In Stores Njt Affect- ,

It waa rumored along the waterfront
yesterday that the watertender Pioneer,
which ia owned by Haekfeld Co.
is for sale, that firm no longer having
any use for a boat of this kind, having
lost all of its steamer agencies during
the past few months. This formerly
waa one of the busiest craft in the har

Co, were agents for the majority of
vessels entering the port.
It was only a few months ago that
the American Hawaiian, which had been
associated with them for a uumber uf
years, opened separate offices up town
and this was followed a short time later
by a severance of business relationa be
tween the Pacific Mail and the Germans
firm. This left them one agency that
of the China Mail, a company with
only one ship, the steamer China. Now
that the business of the China Mail
will in future be handled by Castle ft
Cooke, local Matson and T.K.K. agent .,

I (In Pacta About Sugar) .'
MKI.BOURNK, Australia, .October 1
The first attempt to establish the
beet sugar industry in Australia dates
bock to 1AIKI, when the Government of
Victoria was induced, at the instance
of a press campaign, to endeavor to
make that state independent of import
ed, supplies of cane sugar. Victorian
farmers, however, proved very loth to
undertake cultivation of beets, and it
was not until 1897 that' the movement
made any headway, ' In that year ft
number of farmers in the Maffr dis
trict formed . cooperative " company
and,' having ; been - subsidized by the
government to the extent of two
poanda sterling for every one pound
subscribed by shareholders, erected
factory for making sugar from beets at
cost of aeverrty thousand pounds. ,i
First Attempt ft FftUnro
. The company carried on : operations
for two years, but owing to a variety of
adverse conditions it waa closed down
and the eovernment entered into pos
session of the factory ; and plant as
mortgagee. From 1WH) to 1909 the fac
tory remnined closed, the government
of Victoria confining ita efforts In the
meanwhile to purely experimental agri
cultural work. At the end of the period
named .the farmers of the Maffra dis
trict .were ' sufficiently ' educated as to
the advantage of beet growing to jus
tify the- reopening of the factory. ' The
government thereupon caused the whole
plant to be overhauled aad modernised
and procured the services' as factorf
manager! of ft most capable American
beet augar man, G. 8. Dyer, whose fam
ily has been honorably connected with
the industry in America ever since Its
The first campaign was started nnder
Mr. Dyer's management in April,-1911,
and It successfully demonstrated that
beets, can be grown commercially and
profitably b'y Victorian farmers and
that n standard marketable sugar of
high quality could be manufactured at
a profit at the government rate. Most
of the grower realized handsome pro
fit, aftor paying U expenses. The
sugar ' prodrrred commanded a higher
price than MX cfttie suga placed on the
V ictorian market. The area under erop
in 1911 was only 458 acres. . ,
Awakening Takes Place
In the following year 752 acres were
planted end since thst year the area
planted hss increased annually by
about 100 acres. The tardiness with
which the industry has developed is at
tributed to the extremely conservative
temprrnm.-r.i of tho Victorian farm.ir,
vihicb forbids him engaging -in any en
terprise v. ith which he ia not perfestly
familiar mid makes him stubbornly re
luctant to receive instructions. Dur
ing the last couple of yeara, however,
there has been a noticeable awakening,
nnd not merely in the Maffra, district
but in all parts of Victoria the farmers
are showing themselves anxious to un
dertake the cultivation of beeta. Their
increased interest is due to the success
of the two last Maffra crops.
In 1915 there were produced in Maf
fra 14,400 tons from 1200 acres sown,
and most of the farmers made very
handsome profits. In 1910, more than
15,130 tons of boets were put through
the factory from the same acreage,
from which about 18S9 tons of refined
sugar were manufactured. The sugar
content of the beets exceeded 12.6 per
cent. Tho gross factory profit on the
year's working wns 15,000; and there
was net profit of 8000, after payiug
interest ou all capital charges and
working and manufacturing costs. The
price paid for the beets to farmers was
20,280. Manufacturing charges ab
sorbed 15,000 and factory repairs and
discounts accounted for 2200.
Favorable Prospect
Prospects for the coming season are
highly favorable, but unfortunately the
area planted will not exceed that of last
year, owing to governmental lack, of
foresight iu procuring aeod. Had suf
ficient seed been available, the plant
ing for the next season probably would
have exceeded 5000 acres. The Vic
torian Government obtaina ita aeed sup
plies chiefly from Europe and acta a
sole supplier to the producers. With
lamentable shortsightedness it failed
last year to order reasonably increased
quantities in advance. The consequence
was it was obliged to disappoint the
expectations of numerous new and old
customers, and by the time it waa
able to announce that aeed was on the
way and already outside of the sub
marine danger cone, score of farmers
bad already devoted their land to other
purpose. ; imnJI
tiucu a setback is unlikely to occur
again. The sugar beet industry has
taken an inconceivable time to ''catch
on" In Australia, but it may be confi
dently said that ita future- ia now a
rure. It is rapidly growing in' popu
larity and it ia no longer a, novelty.
Moreover the primary producers of Vic
toria have at .length, become onvine,ed
that they can secure better all round
returns front beet growing than from
any tit her crop, despite the extra cost
and enre demanded by the cultivation
of the beets.

No protects against tb new . bonus
system announced by . the Hawaiian
Hugar Plantera' Association last, week
have been received by that body un
less the editorial comment of the Jap
anese paper be considered in the na
ture of the protest. Plantation agencie
say that - ao unfavorable . comment
have come to them from the plantation
laborer themselves.
It was expected that the action of
the aasoriation would eause disappoint
ment and it is still expected that it
will, but the announcement of tbe
lower price of sugar and of the in
creases in freight rate came st
time that made the mora significant
and convincing the reasons which the
association gave for its action.
Trustees Take Action '
-The action of the augar planter fol
lowed the executive session of the first
afternoon of the meeting when trustees
and plantation managera discussed the
labor and wage, situation. - No com
mittee wa named at that time other
than tbe whole board of trustees and
A. Wt T., Bottomiey, mentioned ftl
chairman of that committee, hal no
more to do with the formulating of
the new plans than had any of the
other trustees, despite tbe credit that
was given to him, : . i
; When the trustee decided Upon the
method that was employed it was their
effort not to make any reduction that
would affect 'the monthly receipts of
the laborers so that they would feel
the cost or living more than formerly.
This was brought about by letting tk
reduction, which waa inevitable if some
of thet plantationa were to continue,
Come at the end of the bonus yeat
only. They were still to receive their
monthly earnings and the lidded thirty-three
percent of that amount each
month, assuring them of a third more
wage than they were paid before the
war.' . .' - ' V i
. The reduction which come at the
end of the year amount to twenty-one
percent, the incf-eased .basis being ilA
s ton in the sugar price and the bonus
being one and half percent on each
dollar anerease in price over too mini
mum. '
Does Not Pay Freight
r ' It has beea estimated that the bonus
paid this year will approach 7,000,000
so that the saving another year should
net about ftl,4(KljK)0. Thje increase
in freight, figuring that the whole of
next year's crop be sent to San Fran
cisco, which will not be the . case,
will amount to 12,000,000 so that
it is . evident that the eut in
tbe bonus will not .begin Ho make
up for the increased freight rate alone,
not taking ito consideration the other
increases' in costs of production.
After February, most of the. New
Tork sugar will go by rail from Kan
Francisco and it is expected by that
time an increase of fifteen percent will
have been allowed tbe railroads which
will bring the freight between1 Hono
lulu and New York up to $20.80 with
a sixty-two cent bill- of lading tax
added, as against $9.50 by water, at
the present time. That is each
ton of sugar sent to New York in that
n ay after February will cost ' the
planters here fll.12 moro than have
shipments to New York by way of the
canui uuung the past year.

Representative of Food Adminis
tration Is Optimistic
Few if . any. import of refined
sugar from tbe mainland to the Island
iu the coming year is the promise re
ceotly made' by J. Fi Child, representa
tive of the food administration in Ha
waii. He claims that recent imports
were made as the result of mistake
aud will not occur again.
It is the opinion of Mr., Child that
national price; fixing ia sugar will re
suit in the ending of imports here pf
refined sugar and of much of the ex
ports made in the past. He expect to
see tiie Islund niu.de refined supply tbe
Island markets. In bis opinion it was
the fluctuating price of sugar 'that
mad profitable shipments from here
rather than sale at home. There would
be times, he said, when the market was
higher on the mainland for refined
than here. The local producer might
then take advantage, of that higher
market. Ou the other hand, there
would. be time, when a, sudden slump
in sugar price on the mainland would
permit the wholesale grocer here- to
make a purchase there for a shipment
here aa required later and thus to ben
cf'it, despite the freight rates.
While the representative of the food
administration admits that tba space
used in the past for sugar imports
could now be better utilised for Im
ports that are really necessary be is in
clined to minimise the ' necessity by
Nityiitg that such imports have not been
large. As a matter of fuct, suar and
entiily imports have been nut far from

of. costly naval? construction, , Thin
country will, no doubt taka its proper
place ia bringing ahout. such, provisions
in th peace treaties ss will nevsr again
constrain any nation to adapt its naval
program to the program of aome other
nation rrom whlcn mere is tne com
nelline mensce of possibl and unpro
yoked attack. Buck compulsion Is the
vry negative of natural and orderly
naval development, it means- the ty
ranny of a program dictated by appre
hension rather than the free ehois of
standard suggested by national. needs
and supported by national ideal. An
international. nvy, ou ths contrary,
will make, possible such naval develop
men as each nation deems fitting for
its own people. It will also serve "ths
parliament- of man " by 'providing
- naval fore ample enough to give valid
ity ta international decree and strong
enough -to keep inviolate the peace of
th world."
