A. Sir: As a citizen, taxpayer, resi
dent on these islands for the past thirty-
years, I desire to call your attention to
a certalmgrant of-water lights report
ed In the papers of this city yesterday,
ns having been granted to the Wahiawa
Fruit & Plant Co. by the Governor and
Council of this Territory.
"In calling attention to this matter I
desire that you should know that I
have no private alms tn be affected
thereby nor have I any animus what
ever. The water rights In question af
fect the future productiveness and
prospect of colonization of a tract of
land of which it forms the only water
supply, and will also largely diminish

streams of these Islands. Having la
bored for years In these matters, I
naturally protest against any and every
attempt to restrict tho setttlemcnt of
our public lands through alienation of
water from natural sojrecs, Without
which the lands will bo forever use
less. The rights proposed to be given
will cause to be erected largo reser

large Government forests which will
ultimately result In damage to them

. YehPemocrat Who :Has
Nerve to Wager.f
Eugene P. Sullivan placed a bet this
morning of $25 to $50 that the next
House of Representatives of the United
States would be Democratic. Mr. Sul
livan says he wants to see tho money
of "the prominent Democrat," mention
ed In yesterday's Bulletin; who express
ed tho opinion that Sanr. Parker would
be elected as Delegate to'Congrcss.
The Rcpubllcah 'rally At W. C. Achl's
In KapatoimJast night was ono.of the,
very best of tho campaign, Tho placo
was very prettily decorated wth Chi
nese lanterns for thcTiccaslou.lt.w8e
a little after 7:30 o'clock that Nnhora
Hipa, heading a large number of Re-.
publicans dressed in red and whlto and
carrying, torches, appeared on tho
seine. The band played, the proccssToh
marched around the yard andthen Mr.
Achl called the meeting to order, in
troducing Mr Paradlao as the first
speaker. Next came S. M. Pulchu, Wm.
Aylett and Kaanaana. George R. Car
ter spoke briefly and then Samuel Par
ker appeared amidst great ' applause.
Messrs. McClellan Joe Kalana and J.
W. Moanaull -were among, the others
who spoke. A feature of tho evening
was the music by a club of nativo boys.
Thlsls the night of tho big Repub
lican rally, at tho drill shed. Paul
Neumann will preside nnd will make
tho opening speech. Samuel Parker
and other prominent Republicans as
announced yesterday, wl'l speak on live
topics of the campaign. There Is no
doubt whatever that tho drill shed
will be filled to overflowing.
A feature of the meeting will be the
singing of the Tuxedo Quurtet. A new
campaign song will be presented. Char
les Elston will do the solo part.
The torchlight procession will Btart
at about 7 o clock, taking tho samo
route as In the former parade. It Is
calculate? that tbero will be over Ave
hundred Republicans In line. Every
body should be out to sec what the Re
publicans .can do when they got their
minds made up.
One of tho most enthusiastically re
ceived speakers, at the Republican rally
In Kapalama last night was Kealakal
who was one of the delegates to tho re
cent convention of tho Independent
party. Kealakal, who was at one time
a "poola" or wharf laborer, told his
audience that he had seen somo of the
inner workings of the Homo Itulo party
nnd, on that account, did not cara to
remain longer in tho ranks. Ho had
seen some machine work back of Ka-
lauokalanl, Kaulla and others In their
"turning down" of J. O. Cartor and E.
C. Macfarlano which would causo no
end of surprise It mado known.
Kealakal has control over that por
tion of tho wharf workers who havo
stood by tho Independent party nnd
now ho la converting these men to tho
Republican faith. He Is certainly a
laluablo addition to tho party.

In time, McClanahan, Wle and others

If not, they will await 'he Klnau.
Republicans will go down the road
tomorrow to do some good work. They

Kaulla, Mossman, Doyd and others of
the Independent party, are at Lalo to
day trying to counteract the Influence
of Kekauoha who recently deserted the
ranks of the Revenge party and "start
ed out on an Independent campaign.
That they.wlll meet with no success Is

THE QUEEN HAS MADEWO DECLARATION
Yesterday afternoon a rumor
party had a tremendous shell to explode between the twothottlle but
not allied camps. Upon the first appropriate occasion the anr!ounce
ment was to be made that Queen Lllluokalanl had declared herself on
the, side of Prince David Kawanakoa's candidacy for Delegate to Con-
To ascertain the truth a Dullettn reporter called at .Washington ft
Place this morning. If tho rumor were not true it was important to H
have Its wings clipped at the earliest poulblo moment, asMf uncontra-
dieted it would pu e Its flight and have equal effect unttl stopped
with a statement of .. "t 4'
The Queen Intlmafd through the medium of her gentlemanly young
usher that she was not feeling very well this morning, but, desired to
know If fnere wcro any special object in the requested Intervldw. An
answer was communicated to the effect that, while the visitor would
feel honored by an opportunity to pay his respects personallyto Her
Majesty, ho desired to ask her if the rumor of her declared preference
for the Prince wero correct or otherwise. Except with her pemlnslon, it
howover, no mention of the visit would be published.
Returning, 'with a negatlvo'gcsture, the usher said:
"There is no truth In the rumor. The Queen says she Is out of poll-
tics entirely. She presumes that the rumor In question aroje from her
attendance at Prince David's luau to the Shriners. Yes, you are at
liberty to publish this statement." it

Washington, Oct. 1(1. Confirmation
has been received hero of the execu
tion on July 20th of Chang Yen lloou,
tho former Chlnoso Minister to the
United States. Chang was a loyal ad
herent of tho Kmperor and a warm
supporter of tho latter's reform move
ments. When the Umpress Donager
supplanted the Emperor two years ago
Chang was ordered to be beheaded, but
through tho Intervention ot the Ameri
can and British Ministers his punish
ment was commuted to banishment In
the district and province ot Knshgarla.
It now appears that the Empress Dow
ager, taking advantage of tho late
reign of terror nt Peking nnd knowing
Chang's Influenco with the Emperor,
ordered his execution by decapitation.

"Tho general rule Is that when a

proach each other at Bea, It Is the duty
kpf tho steamship to keep o.it of the way
o tli cothcr vessel, and In such case
it Is the duty of tho silling vessel to
keep her course. Poslble exceptions
may arise, but the rase at bar is not
one of them,
"In such a case It Is the duty of the
steamship, from tho moment the sail-
Ing vessel Is men, to watch with the
-highest diligence her course nnd move-

measures of precaution as will
necessarily prevent tho two boats com-

the lights of the sailing verscl were nut
placed as required by law will not de
feat recovery by her owners for her
loss, if such misplacing of the lights
did not in any way contribute to tho
collision and tho same was caused by
the negligence and Incompetence of
tho officer In charge of the steamship.
"Upon the evidence in this case, the
steamship held to be tn fault."
The foregoing Is tho uyllabus of a
unanimous decision of the Supremo
