JAPAN AT THE EXPOblTiQrt
Combination Seeking to Obtain Control
ot Hawaiian Electric Co. Stock.
Six Hundred Shares Already Purchased by J.
S. McCandless Some Stockholders Id
There is just now a doal on in
town that involve! thoPeople's lco,
Hawaiian Eloctrio and tho Rapid
Transit companies. Although
the people concerned nro unwil
ling to talk, a few points have
leaked oat. Oao of those came to
light the other day in the publio
ation of tho story telling of the
pnrehase by J. S. McOandless of
600 sharps of stock in the Hawai
ian Eleotrio Go. Further points
have been learned since. A man
who has intimate businpss connec
tions with somn of the men con
corned in the deal had tho follow
ing to say this morning:
"I know as a mntter of fact that
a certain combination of which J.
8. McOindless is one, is trying to
pain control of tho stock of the
Hawaiian Electric Co. ' I have it
from ono or two of thi combina
tion that they have already gained
Bach control. In what manner?
Well, in this way. McOandless
has bought G '0 shares. Now then,
there are a quite a nnmb-r of the
men in the Electric Go. whi hav
stock in the People's Ice Oo. and
they expect these men t join
hands with them.
"Now then there is anothor side
to this qa'stiou. I for one do not
believe that control hat yet been
obtained by tbo combination for
some of those men of ih Eleotrio
Go. who have stock in tho Ice Oo.
will not. join in. Tnore is one
man, a Qerman, who controls
quito a lot of the stock, may Uht
the combination if ho is uot elect
ed proBident of the Eleotrio Oo.
"Now you ask mo what the ob
ject of this is. It is iajt here.
The men fighting for control on
the outside are interested in tho
Rapid Transit Oo. Does it not
look to you as of an attempt is be
ing made to gain control of tbo
Hawaiian Eleotrio Oo. so that the
Rapid Trausit Oo can dictate to
the Pain company that is now
putting in doable tracks for eleo
trio cars ?
"You, of course, know that the
Pain company cannot put in
poles, as there has been no right
granted them to do this. Tbo
Hawaiian Electric, People's lco
and Rapid Trausit Oompauies are
the. only corporations that have
each riiiht. Mr. Pain and his
peoplo will have to get their power
f'om uuothor source than thoir
"Hero is another thing to be
looked at. In seven years from
now tbo agreement between the
Eleotrio and Ion Companies runs

I believe that there are two ob

tinned. At all event there ii a

parties who aro watching the fight
