Honolulu, Sept. 2. Hearing on
the Kohala ditch coutrovetsy before
Governor Dole commenced in the
Executive chamber at 1:30 o'clock
The Governor opened the pro
ceedings by reading the correspond
ence that had passed between him
self and Secretary of the Interior
Hitchcock. He had enclosed a copy
of the application of the Kohala
Ditch Company in his letter to
The opinion of the Attorney Gen
eral, to the effect that the question '
of rights of way for water systems 1
were in the hands of the Governor,
were in the province of Territorial
officers to grant, not requiring the '
permission of the Secretary of the
Interior, was referred to bv the'
Governor at the meeting.
F. S. Dodge, K. 15. McClanahan,
W.O. Smith. Samuel Parker, A. C.
Gehr, A. W. Carter and J. W.
Jones were among those present.
There seemed to be some misun
derstanding to start with as to the
status of the ditch proposition.
The Governor understood that the
two parties anxious to secure the
water privileges, Samuel Parker et
al. and A. C. Gehr et al., had come
to an agreement in the matter. He
referred to the long conferences on
the question and stated that he had
been informed by the different par-
tics that an agreement existed be
tween the Hawaii Ditch Company
and the A. C. Gehr people.
Attorney Wundenberg denied that I
there was ever any agreement as to j
a combination of interests and stated ,
that the Govern :r had been misin
formed if he had reen told by indi-
vidtials of the Hawaii Ditch Com-!
pany that there was a combination. I
Attorney McClanahan stated that ,
in one of the former conferences he I
had stated before the Governor that, j
for the purpose of determining the 1
matter of issuing the license, the
two parties could be considered as I
a combination; as a matter of fact, ,
there was no combination, and he ,
(McClanahan) had so stated. I
The Governor said that the ditch ,
company urged their large control '
of water as a reason for there being
no competition in the matter, the
Gehr people not controlling enough
water to warrant their undertaking (
the proposition. (
It was a question, the Governor
said, to be decided after hearing ar
guments in the case. The Gehr '
people wanted to take up the matter
as it was left when Hitchcock, in
1901, closed proceedings.
Gehr thought the whole question '
should be placed on the old footing,
said the Governor. j
Here there was more argument as ,
to the existence of an agreement be
tween the parties. Samuel Parker
suggested hearing Gehr and J. W.
Jones. Gehr said that was what he
was there for and proceeded to pre
sent his case.
The Governor declared he had
believed there had been a bona fide
combination. He remembered, how
ever, that there was a string out
