U. 8,. Post Commander
TAKES LITTLE STOCK IN
MR. HERBERT'S CAUTION
Ee Is Satisfied the Government will
-Not Prejudice Federal Rights
Nothing to Do with
Captain A. Slaker, commanding tha
U. S. 6th ArGllery and acting depot
quartermaster. Is not afraid, that the In
terests of the United States Govern
ment will suffer from the concession of
water rights In tho Kaukonanui
stream. He Is perfectly satisfied with
the written assurance received from
Secretary Cooper, In answer to his
noto enclosing Allen Herbert's suppli
cation for his official Intervention, that
tho Territorial Government bad done
nothing, nor should do anything, which
would Injure the rights of tho United
States In tho premises,
"I sco no reason why I should Inter
fere In the matter," Captain Sinker
said this morning. "I do not, know
what Is behind tho request for Inter
vention on behalf of the United Stairs
Government. I never met Mr. Herbert
until ho brought In his lette'rV'
Captain Slaker showed the reporter
tho location of the United States reser
vation on a map of Oahu. It Is a long
Btrlp extending from Kahana west
ward. Lands Immediately abutting It
on tho north are occupied by home
steaders, the much debated stream
running along the boundary line 'for
two miles. When tho reporter stated
that he thought the homesteaders wera
the California colonists who were par
ties to the agreement on which tho
water corporation obtaining tho con
cession was based the post commander
said he knew nothing, about the ar-
rumrementH- " fc '
"The Government of tho Territory
contains able lawyers, who know the
rights of the United States Govern
ment In the matter, and nre men who
would not do anything to Jeopardise
"Here Is tho place where the post
would be situated on the reservation,"
Captain Slaker pointed It out on tho
map, "and It would have to get Us
water from this stream. If dams are
built, as Mr. Herbert says will be done,
they will probably conserve and In
crease the supply of water.
"As to the warning about tho de
struction of forests In tho lands above,
I do not see that we have anything to
do with that. It the owners of the
forest choose to cut them down, we
have no right to interfere with them.'
Captain Slaker had not seen the pub
llshcd summary of the water conccs
slons, but he emphasized his full con
lldenco that nothing the Territorial
Government had done or should do In
the premises would prevent tho United
States Army Post from obtaining It
water supply when required out of the
BettlnjJ On 390.
