HILO. Hawaii, Jan. 9. The matter
of the proposed sale of water rights
on the Wailuku river was taken up by
the board of supervisors at its meet
ing Wednesday as the result of a let
ter from Superintendent of Water
works Vannatta. He stated that the
supply of water available for the city
U limited, and that before long it
would be necessary to obtain more,
and for this reason thought that the
county should safeguard itself and
make sure that no water should be
leased, unless the water supply for the
city of Hilo was first safeguarded.
Vannatta's letter was referred to
Frear asking that a watershed reserve
be set aside above the intake of any
pipe-line which might be constructed,
to make sure that this water was not
polluted before being taken into such
pipe-line. This was decided upon by
the committee, which passed the mat
ter up to the territorial government
in the form of a resolution.

TJ. S. District Attorney Breckons
this morning began the presentation
of the government's case in the
fourth' Manuka site condemnation suit
in Federal court. In his opening ad
dress he argued that the valuation
placed on the E. O. Hall premises, of
$22.50 per square foot. Is far too high,
in comparison with the values of
neighboring properties, and -followed
ed this up with the introduction of
documentary evidence showing values
In that vicinity.
'- The valuation of $22.60 per square
foot . was the estimate of Expert R.

There may be over 6000 men in
the military parade on Washington's
Last Washington's birthday saw
what was described as "tne greatest
mllitary pageant ever seen in mono-
lulu." There is every reason to be
lieve that this year will see one
twice as big. The prospects are that
tbe forces here on February 22 next,
to do proper honor to the birthday of
George Washington, will be larger
than those here a year ago. Some of.
the same forces wlii be uere some will
be new, but in any event there is
a disposition to see that the day is
patriotically honored. Probably no
other American city will see honors
done by the military, to the flag
Washington established among the
nations of the earth, on a much
greater scale than will Honolulu.
"We hope to have a fine military
parade," said Major A.. Archibald
Campbell, when asked regarding' the
plans being formed, "but nothing
definite can be assured yet, and no
orders have been issued. We expect
something on the lines of the last
Fourth of July, observances, .with ath-
e. it is lmpossioie to say
regiments will take part, ror
various changes are going on, and iti'"" 7 .k ureet- The
is not known, definitely, just what j 8tall a telephone system for the policSjerg had

Forces Probably Here
The forces that will probably be
here on Washington's birthday are
the First, Second and Twenty-fifth
infantry, and the Fourth Cavalry. If
they parade it will be the first appear
ance of some of them on the streets
An Impressive Parade
According To the present prospects
of army movements, there may be
over t0o0 men on foot and mounted, in
the parade with which the army
forces here will honor Washington's
birthday, on the morning of February
22. Honolulu has seen big parades be
fore, but never anything like the one
with which Uncle Sam's forces here
are likely to bgin the proper ob
servances of the national holiday
which is regarded by many Americans
as the greatest of all their patriotic
days. Honolulu will have been cele
brating for several days, enjoying her
Carnival week with enthusiasm, and
she will be ready with colors flying
when the army men, cavalry and in
fantry, march through the streets
with their colors and their bands, foot
and mounted. Those in charge of the

for a grand patriotic decoration and

Colonel D. J. Rumbough, command-

officer passed away, December 26th.
This is the first n that the regi
ment has had of its colonel's death,
and it comes as a shock and a sur

left here nearly six months ago a very
tick man, recent advices were that he
was on the Vend. His death followed
