Tho new ditch for the Wailuku
Sugar Company and the Hawaiian
Commercial ami Sugar Company
that has been in process of con
struction for the past two years
has been completed and the water
turned in the ditch on Wednesday
May the loth at the new dam that
has been built at thoniauka intake
in the Waihce river.
The water was turned in at
twelve o'clock noon. F. F. Bald
win, C. 13. Wells, Congressman
Keifcr E. Faxton Bishop and a
few others were present wKcn the
water was turned in.
It took just three hours 'and
forty-five minutes for the water to
reacli the end of the ditch where
the two companies aro interested
n the division of tho water.
There are twenty tunnels in
tho new enterprise of the following
lengths, No. 0. 320 ft., No. 1, 135-1
ft , No. 2, 22-16 ft., No. 3. 1002 ft.,
No. -1, 1433 ft., No. 5, 470 ft., No. G,

TAX APPLiAL TAKGN.
An appeal has been take by the
Hawaiian Commercial and Sugar
Company from the decision of the
Tax Assessor lowering the deduc
tions of tho company in its returns
by which the company would be
taxed $24,359.84 on its income tax
instead of $20,005.88 as claimed is
just by the company. The income
tax returns as mado by the officers
of the company show a gros3 profit
of $2,077,302 91 from which was
deducted for running expences and
depreciation of plant tho sum of
?1,044,00S.G0. The latter figures
were not allowed by tho Assessor
who reduced tho samo to $1,457,-
If the lax Assessor is correct
then tho income tax of the corpora
tion would bo'raised to $24,389.81
or two per cent of its net profits.
The papers in the suit have been
drawn by Attorney James L. Coke
who represents the plaintiff.
Tho taxation value of tho realty
and personal property of the com
pany as nxeu by tno Assessor is
not questioned by tho corporation.
Wo hallow thy colors three.
