1. .()(! acres of land at Hunlo, Maui,
from Mr. Cat ton the agent of Win:
Raincy Watson of Scotland.
Mr. Smyth, as trustee, made a lease
of this land to the Huelo Sugar
Company, which lease was never rati

ember last a meeting of the share
holders was held at Huelo. and was
adjourned to March 8. VMM.
Between these two dati s, Judge
Kepoikai. representing the Hawai

bought a controlling interest in the
shares of the Ilui. thirty-six shares,
which was one more than a majority
of the stock.
On March 8th, the date to which
the meeting was adjourned, another
meeting of the shareholders was
held at Huelo, at which meeting the
president, secretary and treasurer
resigned. The majority of the share
holders present Immediately proceed

constitution of the Hui permits.
Their names will be found in the no

We received an Interesting com

shareholders,' which, however, Is too
lengthy for publication.
The writer is somewhat dissatis

holders in holding the meeting with
out giving a special notice to all the
shareholders, but he states that it
was an adjourned meeting to a fixed
time. The names of the men at the
