HURti m. Coke,
A Happy It is doubtful if llierc was over a more satis
Termination, factory termination of lilt lo family rivalry than
that between the coiitenilinir parties in (lie Kepuhliean jwimury
election of last Saturday evening when bolh sides claim almost a
complete victory and bolh sides are ploasod with the result.
An arliclo appearing in the Evening llullotiu of thcMli instant,
which was written by one of the Hart followers, says that the Hart
ticket elected ten of their men and but two of the opposition, 11. M .
Coke and R. A. Wadsworth, were elected. This seems to us to !
very astrango statement when it is a matter of record that, II. M.
Coke nominated eleven men for the County Convention and all but
one that be nominated, who ran. were elected. Those nominated
by II. M. Coke included V. E. Dal. Charles lluiley. A. I'.orba .Jr.
P. Goodness, Kamaku Kailianu, II. A. Wadsworth and others while
the friends of Wadsworth and Coke nominated cloven of the candi
dates who were elected and but one, E. H. H u t, was elected who
was opposed by them and as he got but four more votes than CoU
we fail to see the Hart victory and are especially pleased that In
does. In spite ofstories to the contrary there was no issue at stake
until Hart came out with his anti white ticket which was resented
as much by the Hawaiians as the whites. His printed ticket did
not have a white man marked to be voted for.
Opposed to this scheme were those who contended that the Ha
waiians, Portuguese and Americans should be represented and the
election was fought out on these lines with the result that Kawai
hoa was defeated and Hart elected by a bare majority of seven
votes over Kahookele while Coke and Wads worth were both elected .
So far as known there is no particular slate, program, or cam
paign contemplated by either of the parties and as each side seems
to feel satisfied with the result of the election it is now up to all
concerned to get together and work for the nomination and elec
tion of good men for the various ollices and for harmony in the
Thwing has at last decided to go to China where he will find
green fields and pastures new among the IJoxers. The Lord be
praised. We wish him a speedy departure, a pleasant voyage, and
a prolonged absence.
Court Grants Temporary In
junction re Water Case.
By stipulation an injunction has
been allowed to bo granted that will
tie up the question of right between'
the YVailuku Sugar Co. and the Ter
ritory, to the water in Iao Valley
that is in dispute.
The contention of the sugar com
pany is quite different to that re
ported by wireless last week. The
sugar company does not deny that
many pieces of land here have water
rights but does deny that the gov
ernment has any right to or use of
The company denies the right of
the government to cany water in
excess of twenty thousand gallons to
Kahului where it claims no water
We clip the following rc'xrt from
The injunction case of the Wailu
ku Sugar Company vs. the Terri
tory will not come up for a couple
of months at least and in the mean
time the waterworks at Wailuku and
Kahului will remain in status quo,
no improvements or changes being
made till a final decision has been
reached in the courts. A temiorary
injunction to this effect will !e issued
by the courts.
This situation will last for at least
a couple of months, an agreement
having been reached this morning
between W. A. Kinney, of the lirm
of Kinney Jr Marx, attorneys for the
sugar company, and Attorney Gen
eral Hemenway. This agreement
provides that a temporary injunction
shall be issued restraining the Terri
tory from taking more water from
the Iao Valley supply or making
any further additions to the. water
works of Kahului and Wailuku.
The pre4xsition was broached to the
M ini, Hawaii, ns ocond cl.e-s matter.

Attorney General by Mr. Kinney
and was immediately agreed to, as
it was everything that the Territory
could possibly ask in a suit of the
Mr. Kinney leaves for the Coast
tomorrow on the Hilonian and will
be away for at least six weeks, which
means that the case cannot come up
for some time. rlhe attitude in
which the sugar company is behav
ing in the suit has been a very
friendly one. While believing that
the Territory is taking too much
water and wishing to settle the wati
right in Iao Valley and the Wailuku
stream it has refrained from taking
a if) steps which would N inconveni
ence the people of Wailuku and Ka
hului, who are . dependent on this
source of suiply.
The Advertiser has the following
to say of the case.
Wailuku and Kahului may lose
their water ritpply. At present their
water-works system takes its suj
plies from the Wailuku river and
Iao valley. But the right to this
supply is vigorously attacked in a
bill filed in the Circuit Court, and
according to some of tlfose who know
the circumstances of the matter a
very strong case against the Terri
tory has lieen made out. An in
junction has been asked for to pre
vent the Territory from taking more
than twenty thousand gallons a day
from this source, an amount that is
so grossly inadequate for the needs
of these communit'ies as to amount
virtually to no supply at all.
It may be that the Legislature
will have to come to the relief of
these communities by providing for
them an adequate supply, as the
Legislature came to the relief of
Lahaina by purchasing sullieient
water rights, after the Territory had
been helping itself to water for four
years to which it had no legal right.
The bill for injunction which has
been tiled by the Wailuku Sugar
Company denying the right of the
Territory to anything like the
amount of water it is taking from
Wailuku river and Iao valley, makes
out a very interesting story of en
croachment. If the story as the bill
tells it is true, Mohammed's camel,
who began by getting his nose inside
the tent and ended by crowding
e( rylhing else out, is discounted.
According to the bill, the Territory
liegan by buying a tarn patch and
ended by having a eomjlcte water
works system for two communities,
fi'c(tieiiily using half a million gal
lons of water a day.
The story told in the bill goes
thus: Prior to IS!)!) or l'.KX) the
Wailuku and Kahului had no water
works. Almut that time W. K.
Howell, the SnHTintendelit of Public
Works under Minister of the lnterir
.lames A. King, bought ataro patch
from John W. Kalua, which hail a
water rij;ht. The laud iurchased is
thus eh eriUl and limited :
"All of Apana l,of Land Com
mission Award ".":.".), Boyal Patent
IM.V.I to H.uia, containing an an a of
I . I" acres, and consisting of almut
three-quarters of an arce of tarn
land, entitled as such to water for
that area nf.taro laud from said
waters of .-aid Iao valley, the balance
thereof In ing kttla land and nfit en
titled to any water in or from the
waters of said Iao valley or hraneln s
In PKHI, it is alleged, Alexander
Young, as Minister of the Interior,
pun based from the Wailuku Sugar
Company for one thousand dollars
1.01") acres of land, together with a
right-of-way across the lands of the
Wailuku Sugar Comiany for a j)iic
line from this laud to that purchased
It is alleged in the bill that, at
the time, it was represented that the
land purchased from the Wailuku
Sugar Com any was for a reservoir
site where wvs to Ire stored the water
to which the land bought from Kula
was entitled, unil from thence to
distribute it to the people of Wai
luku. Water was led from the Wai
luku river to the Kalua land and
from thence by the pipe-line to the
reservoir . site, and then distributing
mains and pipes were laid through
out the town of Wailuku and the
town of Kahului, . and a regular
waterworks system was established.
This having been established,
the next ste is thus recited in Hit
'"That very soon after the instal
lation of said waterworks, but'im
lorceitibly at first, the said Minis
ter of the In'erior beuau to iippro
priah more and more from said
Wailuku and Iao vallev streams
into said Apana 1, of Royal
Patent 4050, and thence by pipe
line to said reservoir, and thence
from said reservoir through sub
sidiary pipe-lines to the users
thereof in said towns and villages
of Wailuku and Kahului aforesaid,
said aggressions by said Alexander
Young being continued and enlarg
ed and increased by his suei essors
in the duties of said cilice, includ
ing said defendant, which said in
creased appropriations of waters
were wholly illegal, and made
without right or authority or justi
fication therefor." .
The next step, according to the
bill, was when a storm in Iao vaL
ley in November, 1900, broke and
carried away the pipe-line leading
the waters from the stream, but in
stead of repairing it as it was be
fore the sujHTintendent of the Wai
luku waterworks changed the head,
to a joint near the first crossing of
said la-, valley and upon land
owned by the Wailuku Sugar Com
pany under the plea of necessity
and the promise that when he had
more time he would restore it to
where it ought to be.
These encr Kichments, it is alleg
ed, have grown until now there is
often diverted a half million gal
lons a day, and always more than
the Territory is entitled to, the
amount so far illegally diverted
being worth ten thousand dollars,
it is claimed, and the water taken
is needed by the Wailuku Sugar
Company to irrigate its plantation.
"One excuse or pretense made
hy the defendant." the bill goes on
to say, "for its action aforesaid,
now made, is Unit there are a num
ber of persons residing in the
village of Wailuku entitled to a
share of the waters from the Wai
luku stream and Iao valley for
their lands in Wniluku districts,
and that the government is divert
ing through its pipe and water
system aforesaid (or the most part
the waters of rivate individuals
for delivery lo them through said
pipe-line?, and that the charges
ind water rates made to such in
lividuals are'solely for the use of
said jiijie-lines and the expense of
transmitting the Fame therein,
rather than through the onen
litches, as was formerly the case."
The jilaintiff denies that this is
in, and while admitting that there
ins some people in Wailuku who
are entitled to take water from
Wailuku stream and Iao valley, it Whkrkas, section 36,- chapter 10, of
