Accepting an invitation from
acting superintendent Pratt oE tho
Wator Works to visit tho now ro
ourvoir, a livLhcrm iopoitr
learned somo items in connection
thoiowith that will be of public
Although tho rosorvoir is full
no water has been used from it
for over a weok. This is on ac
count of tho construction of a
roof, which wa9 part of tho origin
al plan and is now boing pushed
forward under orders from Min
inter King. Tho main trusses for
tho roof aro made of heavy tim
bers bolted together, which rest
on two piors in tho middlo of tho
reservoir and extend therefrom to
the outer wall. Theso piers arc
Bteel tubes fifteen inches in dia
motor, tho iusides being tilled
with concroto. To savo tho ex
pense of Boaii'olding tho work is
being done by moans of a largo
raft which is ilontod about
tho resorvoir as required. Tho
exterior of tho roof will bo of cor
rugated iron, heavily painted.
Proper ventilation will bo pro
vided, as a mattor of course.
When the roof is completed tho
leservoir will bo thoroughly
cleaned and will then bo ready for
permanent use. The objects to be
attained by ronling tho reservoir
are additional purity of tho water
by stoppiug dirt and dust from
blowing in and tho prevention of
tho accumulation of "Hum"
around tho sido. It is maintain
ed that the lattor will not grow in
All signs of lcakago or scepago
from tho resonoir have disap
peared and no more troublo is
anticipated on that score, as tho
pores in the cement have tilled up
by this timo. As to their being
any danger of the reservoir burst
ing on the town bide Captain Pratt
says the idea is preposterous. In
addition to tho two foot brick
wall on the inside of tho resorvoir,
thero is a nolid stono wall behind
varying iu thickness from two
to five feet, which at tho
lowest part extends sovon feet
under the reservoir. This Btone
wall is fitted into a natural stono
bank over twenty feet wido, all
crevices and holes boiug carefully
filled in with rock and comout.
All brick and stono work about
tho reservoir has boon laid in
With regard to tho present
wator supply Captain Pratt says
tho Porotauia streot pumps aro
furnishing all tho wator needed,
although the rainfall at Kuuauu
valloy has boon vory slight. It is
a singular fact that although it
rained more or less nearly every
day in October, litllo or no rain
fell above tho Electric Light Sta
tion. Tho rain all seemed to
como from ovor tho Manoa ridge,
missing tho Pali altogether. Ow
ing to froquont rains tho demand
lur water lor irrigation has boon
very light, and tho pumps havo no
difficulty in kooping tho pipes
fillip Yesterday at IJ o'clock the
Makiki and lower Nuuunu ro
sorvoirs woie full to overflowing
and tho sorvico pipes in tho
btroets wore all filled up. The
pumps had to bo shut down for
fear of bursting tho pipes.
George Boardmau confirms tho
statements uiado in this paper re
cently to tho effect that tho Jap
anese wore going into tho busi
ness of browing on an extensive
scalo. Tho Japaneso beer, he
says, is vory good but too heavy
for this climato. It more nearly
resembles tho Gorman brand
known as Spaton Brow' than any
other kind, and it is coming into
use all ovor Japan.

The statement ha8 boen mndo (o
tho Bulletin that tho recent con
ferences between representatives
of tho Hawaiian Sugar Planters'
Association and tho government
has resulted in an uuderbtaudhig
by which the plcntors agree hero
aftor to tako a certain proportion
of European laborors in li u of
Oriontnls. Tho proportion ia
stat.ul to bo 10 per cont, and Iho
plautors are required to file bonds
to employ such European immi
grants whenever furnished by I lie
In reference to tho abovo a
representative of this paper called
on J. B. Atherton this morning,
who said that somo time ago tho
government submitted a proposi
tion to tho planters looking to tho
importation of a certain percent
age of European labor which wns
not agreeable to tho plautors. Iu
its stead they submitted a counter
proposition. Several meetings
wero held which havo finally
culminated in an official noliro be
ing givoii to the Planters' Associa
tion through the medium or tho
Board of Immigration that here
after they must import a certain
proportion of othor labor
with every importation of
Chineso nnd Japanese. This
other labor, Mr. Atherton
explained, is uot necessarily Eu
ropean, it may bo American or
any other nationality other than
Oriental. It may iucludo negroes,
Armenians or any others tho plan
tors choose to bring, but for ovory
shipment of Oriontal laborers
horeaftor brought to tho country
thoro must be the agreed propor
tion of others. Theso people must
bo employed ou contracts on tho
plantations nfter boing brought
hero but not necessarily ns agri
cultural laborers. They may bo
used on tho plantations as lunas
or mechanics, but they must not
leave tho plantations until tho
expiration of their contracts.
Theso Europeans or whitevor
they may happen to bo aro
to bo brought here at tho
expense ot the plautors, but an an
inducomont for them to briug out
families tho government has
agreed to allow 1!J0 towards tho
expense of briuging each married
woman with one or moro childron.
This agreement is now in force,
said Mr. Atherton in conclusion,
but eithor sido has tho privilego of
terminating it upon giving tho
othor acortain notico, tho duration
of which ho did not caro to state,
neither would ho say definitely
that tho amount of the now class
of labor to bo imported waB 10

Patrick Cullen, who was con
victed noarly two years ago of tho
murder of a Chinese at Koolau
aud sentonced to livo years im
prisonment, has escaped from tho
prison and at this writing has not
bt'on heard from. Cullon's con
duct has been such during his
stay ou the reef that ho was mndo

privilego of occasionally going
outsido tho walls. Ho was
missed between 5 and 0 o'clock
yesterday evening. Immediate
search was made and his striped
suit, which he must havo exchang

afterwards. At tho police station
today nothing now had been
