NUMBER 50:. .
Compromise Probable Be
Attorneys J. ?L. Coke and Enos
VihcentiiUHlja number of witnesses
in the suit of the Wailuku Sugar
Company versus the Territory of
Hawaii relative to water for Wailu
ku and Kahului returned Tuesday
evening and announce that a com
promise is , probable betweon the
Thc case can)0,.,.upt cfore Judge
Robinson on Monday the 2 ith.
I' After a good deal of legal fencing
Judge Robinson continued the in
junction suit until Monday, Febru
ary 21 by consent. It is a suit to
restrain Marston Campbell, Super
intendent of'Tuiblie Works, and W.
E. BaVJ superintendent of Wnilnku
water -works, from using certnin
water. In several instances the
court by mutual consent has opened
thetenipprary injunction to pormit
house- connections with the Wnilnku
and Knhului water system.
W. A. Kinney for tho company
pleaded for a continuance, urging
thaCa businesslike settlement of the
controversy might and should bo
inade out of court in tho meantime.
To take up individual rights involv
ed would require weeks of conten
tion, over details. It was represcnt
ed.nlsQ ns.only fair to Mr. Lindsay,
who will become Attorney General
on February 1, tfcat ho should have
an opportunity of studying, thecase
for the Territory. Mr. Kinney re
ferred to the point raised by the
company, as to whether an ancient
water right for a kuleana should
cover the same land when trails
formed into a town lot, upon which
additional, houses, a stable or a
hotel, may have been erected.
Politics had been imported into the
controversy "The Wailuku house
holders being done up by tho wick
ed corporation" and far would it
be from him to obstruct that game.
Howeveri if thero was o bo a
wrangle, in court extending over
weeks there would be trouble on tho
Judge Robinson caused n general
laugh by asking if taro patches were
favorable to the raising of hell.
Mr;' Kinney answered that water
rights caused more trouble in the
oourts than anything else.

drawn and not offered for sale.
Deputy Attorney General An
drews said he would not answer tho
argument of opposite counsel in
detail, although ho disputed his
statements. Mr. Kinney asked him
to say which ones ho disputed, but
he refused to reply even when

ment. The Territory was prepared

brought Mr. Hal and County En
gineer Howell from Maui and Mr,

Deeply to the regret of the mem
bers of the Makawao Church and
congregation, and to his host of
friends- on Maui and the other
Islands, Rev. Edward Bates Turner
resigned his pastorate last Friday
night, January 21st, stating that
he asked to be released from hi?
parish at the first of August this
This action on tho part of Mr.
Turner was decidedly unexpected,
und the news came to his congre
gation with a great shock, for no
intimation of his determination to
leave Maui had been given, even to
the members of the Standing Com
mittee of tho Makawao Church. '
The annual business meeting of
the Church and congregation was
held on tho 21st. The usual in
toresting reports of tho progress of
tho work in tho Clmroh andvof the
varioijs missionary enterprises of
the Church were read. Mr. Tur
ner's report waB of exceptional in
terest. He told in his modest way,
of what had been accomplished in
the past, and reviewed the work of
tho Sunday School, which has
taken so much of his special atten
tion outside, the immediate duties
of his parish, and perhaps stands
out most prominently as the most
striking foatnre, marking his suc
cess in this Maui Church. Tho
membership of the Church has in
creased from 77 to about 125 in
tho three years thaj. Mr. Turner
bus been tho pastor, and tho Sun
day School membership, which was
45 when ho came to Maui, is now
175, which included a nourishing
Homo Department. Tho Church
under Mr. Turner has mado re
markable progress in all other de
partments and is a heavy supporter
of all missionary activity on Maui
