HI IX). Hawaii, Jan. 9 The matter j
or the proposed sale of water rights
an 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 j
supply of water available for the city '
Is limited, and that before long itl
would be necessary to obtain more,!
and for this reason thought that the;
county should safeguard itself and
make sure that no waior shwuhi be i
leased, unless the water supply for the;
v'ity of llilo was first safeguarded.
Vannatta's letter was referred to j
tla' committee on roads and internal
improvements and to tie eounty at
torney. At a meeting which was held i
on Wednesday morning it was shown

U. S. District Attorney Breckons
this morning began the presentation
of the government's case in the
f fourth Mahuka site condemnation suit
in Federal court. In his opening ad
dress he argued that the valuation
placed pn 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 $22.50 per square
foot was the estimate of Expert R.
R. Reidford. This was exclusive of
the building, which he figured worth
$65,000, the two making a total of
$233,637.50 for the entire property.
J. M. Dowsett, called to the wit
ness stand by Breckons this morning,
said that a one-ninth interest, in the
land on which the new Pantheon
block has been constructed, was sold
in January, 1908, for $3,500; that an
other one-ninth interest in the .land
was sold in September' of the same
year for $4,000, and that in January,
1909, a similar share in the land,
which as yet was unimproved by the
new business building which has
since gone up there, was disposed of
for a consideration of $5,000.

That President Taft is likely to
withdraw Governor Frear's name and
present that of either Gilbert J. Wal-
er or E. M. Watson to the senate for
confirmation as governor of this ter-
ritor', as rumor current yesterday
had it figured, is doubted by the pres
ent chief executive.
"As near as I can learn, the rumor
is of local origin," said the governor
when questioned on the subject today,
"and is not the result of any recent
information from the capital.
"Of course none of us know what
may happen, but it looks extremely
doubtful that Taft will send in the
appointment of a Democratic candi
date because the senate apparently
has no intention of letting him make
any appointment, of either Democrats
or Republicans, to any job, desiring
to hold them all up for the incoming
"The sr:te probably has no assur
ance that " ft'8 appointment of a
Democratic office-holder would be
any more a leptable to Wilson than
his selection cf a Republican might
he, and from present indications it
would seem they are not going to
take any chalices.
"It is quite likely that the appoint

be held in abeypnee. together with all

There may be over 6000 men in

birtnday. they found a good start made on thelr
Last Washington's birthday saw j new tome. Of course there Is still
what was described as "the greatest t to be done and jt win bo sev
military pageant ever seen in llono-
lulu." There is every reason to be
lieve that this year will see one
twice as big. The prospects are that
the 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 win be uere some will
be new, but in any event there is
a disposition to see that the day is
patriotically nonored. 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

Colonel D. J. Rurobough, command
ing the First Field Artillery, at Scho
field Barracks, is dead. This word
reached department headquarters this
morning, in the form of a mail copy
of a telegram to. the adjutant general
of the army from Chicago, where the
officer passed away, December 26th.
This is the first nc that the regi
ment has had of its colonel's death,
and it comes as a shock and a sur
prise, for while Colonel Rumbough
left here nearly six months ago a Tory
sick man. recent advices were that he
was on the mend. His death' followed
an operation in a Chicago hospital
for a complication of appendicitis and
liver trouble. He was a native of
Virginia, born March 5, 1856.
The question of a successor to
command the First at once arises.
There were two additional colonels in
the field artillery, making eight, in
cluding the late officer, and with only
six regiments, this still leaves seven
colonels. It is therefore unlikely that
any promotion will result from Col
onel Rumbough's death. Three' full
colonels of the Field Artlljery are now
on detached duty, any oho of them be
ing eligible for the local command.
