A Second Lieutenant, who was
apparently conducting the party,
handed tho haokman a dollar after
making somo inquiries of him in

ed drive to Waikiki. The offioers
were not satisfied with the terms,
and, dropping the subject, turned
to go aboard tho trannport. The
hackman, however, addressing tho
officer who had paid him, com
plained that a dollar was not the
required fare. "way yon toiu

Dunwell continued to talk in no
complimentary manner and the

for his man again; Dunwell fought
desperately but was overoome and
severely punished bv the officer.

An important meeting of. tbe
stockholders of tbe Ewa Sugar
Go. was held during the latter
part of last week.
On statements mado the stock
holders were givon to understand
that the present mill at Ewa will
bo too small to handle the increas
ed crops of 1900 and 1901.
It was at onoe decided to in
crease tha capacity of the mill by
putting over it a now mill frame,
making a fireproof building. It
was also decided to purchase now
machinery, put in nw pumps,
build new laborers' quarters and
raise tho present floor so that tbe
sugar may be emptied into tbe
bags from tho osntrifagala direot
instead of by means of tho shovel
ing procoss, now employed.
To bandlo thti criu ot tue next
two years it wonld take the present
mill tbat length of time, working
everyday. Iho manager basal
ready been allowed $160,030 to in
crease tho capacity of tbe mill so
that tho o.opj may be haudlod.
Ot this, $GO,000 has already beon

bonds on tbe whole plantation as
security, tho plantation reserving,
tbo right 'to pay book the monny

be found possible. The Hawaiian

named but it was thought best to
spocify no company or individual
aa thero might be a change io
ft was also voted to rescind tbo
motioa passed at the last mooting,
making a reserve fund of $30,000.
Tho shareholder wore given an
insight into the financial condi

000, approximately. Thero was
$80,000 of tbe plantation's money
on band at tho office of tho agents.
Tho sugar sent by the George
Curtis brought in $120,000 and

to be reported. According to eal
