The upper and lower Ilaroakua

of fifty-two miles. They supply four
plantatlqns with water, besides 500,

between Hakalau apd Wailuku river

convey it 100 miles through Puna and

up at least 20,000 acres" of land that
are today worthless, making them pro-

Just Like a Romance. !
Almost as enthralling as the finest
romances born of the imagination of
genius is the story of Mr. McCros-; .
son's share in the development of wa.' , .stor!f the Privation and suffer
ter for irrigation in Hawaii. All the ing, without precedent in the history
more do the achievements of his fore-
llt Ul uia. lui c
thoughtful enterprise reflect luster '
u.uuguuu. cuir.M.. u
upon his name when it is remembered,
that when he began promoting irri
gation. works the science was only in
its infancy in this western world.
Mr. McCrosson conceived the idea of
the Hamakua ditch more than twenty
years ago when he was employed on
a Hawaii island plantation. For a
time his arguments of the wealth that
lay waiting to be evolved from the
water running to waste into the
ocean fell upon deaf ears, but event
ually Samuel Parker went in with him
and provided the necessary capital for
the upper ditch. A company was
formed which issued bonds for the
construction, and the upper ditch
was opened with a great celebration
several years ago.
Next came the labor of financing the
lower ditch. Bonus theretor were
sent to London in the hands of Geo.
W. Macfarlane, who failed to place
them just as he had been assured of
success, when the issue was returned
to Honolulu, where it jvas floated in
thirty days. Of the issue of one mil
lion dollars, $S0(t,oiO was devoted to
construction of the lower ditch and
$200,0M) held by trustees for retiring
outstanding bonds of the upper ditch.
Upper and lower ditches were con
structed by separate corporations, aft
er which both were amalgamated fi
nancially by the organization of the
Hawaiian Irrigation Co.. a holding
concern, the officers being: Fred. M.
Iewis. president; John T. McCrosson,
vice-president; K. 1. Spalding, treas
urer; C. F. Clfmons. secretary; H. F.
Lewis, Richard Ieis and F.' E.
Thompson, directors. Lewis & Co.
were the purchasers of the bonds.
haing courageously staked the capi
tal upon their faith in the enterprise
and the man.
The Lower Ditch.
The work of building the lower
ditch was completed months ahead of
the time calculated. Water was turn
ed on the night of June 3o, 1H10, and
reached the irrigation channels of
Kukuihaele plantation 1 Pacific Sugar
Mill next morning. Contracts had
been made for a total supply of 46,
12.".""o gallons a day as follows: Pa

NOVEL FISH ATTRACTION.
Fishermen of Cezirabo. Portugal, I

News. This is obtained from a fish 1
known as Malamocephalus laevis and
is a thick yellowish fluid which pos-
sesses a bluish phosphorescence in the '
dark, believed to be due to the pres-
ence of a luminous microbe. The fish-1
ermen rub this substance upon a mus
cular tissue, such as a piece of cuttle-;
tish, and this is used as bait. The

At the conclusion of the Olympiad,

team, made a tour of all the big Eu

Swimmer to Return.
The Duke Is' In love with America,
end particularly with California, A1-!
1 hough up until a few months ago he
had spent all of his twenty-two years
in his island home, his experiences in
this country have infused him with a
strong desire to make his permanent
lesidence here. He has been away
from hime for close on to eight
months, and outside of his wish to
see the "old folks," as he put it last
night, he has no wish to return.
. On his departure this morning a
large delegation of local athletic
lights accompanied him down to the
pier. He was plainly affected by the
hospitality shown him, and expressed
his thanks in a quivering voice. As
the steamer backed away from the
wharf he leaned over the rail and
cried out that -he would be back at
the first opportunity. v
"I can't wait until 1915 boys. I'm
coming back just as soon as I can,

As the liner turned up the 'bay he
was still shading his eyes' with his
hands and gazing on one lktle group

(Continued from page 9.)
In order to even up matters, the
committee at last winter's meeting
voted to allow the offensive team four
downs to make ten yards. This Is
sure to result in more rushing and
there will be more of the spectacular
play than there has been since the In
auguration of the forward pass and
the ten-yard rule. JThis is one of the
most important changes.
The next change of importance Is
in regard to the forward pass. Un:
der the old ruling, a . forward pass
could not be completed behind the
goal line. This ruling made . it al
most impossible for the offensive team
to gain ground when close to its op
ponent's goal line, because the secon
dary defense was pulled up to
reinforce the forward line, which vir
tually meant that an offensive player
had to penetrate two lines of defense.
Under the new rule the defensive
eleven can not pull its secondary line
up too close because some players will
have to stay back to intercept for
ward passes. Consequently the offen
sive team will have better chances of
scoring, which is only Just as a re
ward for Its efforts in rushing the ball
to w ithin scoring distance. This is an
important change and should be re
membered, as -there are many possi
bilities of the amendment which can
result in plays being evolited which
will result in scores if executed prop
erly. No Field Judge.
The elimination of the field judge
is the next change of importance. This
otncial was not a necessity. Several
times officials had arguments with the
field judge in regard to certain in
fringements of the rules, which came
under the jurisdiction of all four ar
biters. Instead of the field Judge
keeping time, the head linesman now
will hold the watch.
The time between the first and sec
ond and third and fourth quarters has
been reduced from two minutes to one,
while the intermission between the
second and third periods, which gen
erally is known as the time between
halves, will be the same as usua!,fif
teen minutes. As the rule books al
ready have been published, the first
point fr football beginners -is to get

a coP i ine coae
It is not necessary to purchase all
; the armor which so many football
players wear. A lot of hard training
i will put the novices in condition to
stand a .few hard knocks, besides giv- j
ing their musclse more freedom of .
action. A suit padded on the thighs
is sufficient. Light headgears should
be worn by the linemen, but the backs
and ends should not wear helmets, as
they interfere with their work, espe-1
cially in offensive play, when the sig-1
nals can not be heard distinctly. It j
is all right for a plunging back or a
smashing back to wear them, but they
should be of light material. Jerseys
padded at the shoulders to protect the
collar bones are sufficient. Nose
guards never should be worn except
in rasp nf n hnrilv hriiissr1 nnco FrPP.
