CRITICISM IS UNJUST

A. M. Hunt, manager of the Inde
Itemlent Electric Light anil Power
Co. San Francisco, who arrived hero In
the Sierra, left for homo In tho Zeal
nndln. ilia company Is tho one organ
ized by Clans Spreckcls. Its works
have a capacity of 7000 horse powir
and distribute light and power over thn
city. They furnish power to tho San
Alutec electric railway and to the RIh
iloii Iron Works, besides a great many
of the smalled factories, laundries, etc.
Mr. Hunt's visit to Honolulu was
for the purposes of tccuperatlon from
overwork. "It has been n very pleasant
ti lp and very becnflclal to me," ho said
to n Bulletin leportcr who met him at
Hon. Paul Neumann's rcsldenco a fe-v
hours before his departure. Mr. Hunt
.-a formerly n partner In engineering
of V. F. C. Hasson Mr. Neumann's
HOn-ln-law, and gave up a flourishing
business nt tho urgent solicitation of
'M. Spreckcls. 'This .Information Is
not from Mr. Hunt himself.
In answer to a question, nt the closd
if the reporter's Interview, Mr. Hunt
expressed confidence In a bright fu-
tuie for Honolulu, "both on account of
the productiveness of the Islands and
nf a port of call whpn n cable ha
been laid and the Isthmian canal con
Mulcted." Mr. -Hunt was hero In the
1 . rV5. AlbatrosijVwhen she was on
her cruise making soundings for the
. cable. He was n Passed Assistant En
glneor In the Navy, retiring In 1894.
Hcsldes the facts already given re
gardlng the company of which ho Is
manager, Mr. Hunt stated: "Our sys
tern la all laid out as an underground
" one In tho business Bcctlon, but pola
lines are used In outlying sections. An
linderaround system would be proh!
the In Honolulu, not on account of th6
expense but because of low-lying
ground liable to flooding. Where tin
lighting Is so scattered It Is almost
entirely residential work you could
not get adequate service without clmrg
'lug exorbitant rates. In tho present
, growing period of your city an under
ground system could not be laid, out
Asked whether he had looked .into
the status of the Hawaiian "Electric
.Company and 'If so how he regarded I;.
Mr, Hunt replied as follows:
"Yes, I "was over matters with
Mr. Oartley the manager on the Coaft
before ho .placed the orders for nuw
marhlnery. It seems to mo that tho
public are unjust In tho criticism made
upon the company .
"I do not Vnow the history of af
fairs since Mr. Oartley was up there,
but I know that orders' were place .1
for machinery of highest efficiency. Tho
greatest efforts were made to meat
the 'winter peak load.' " This Mr. Hunt
explained to mean the extraordinary
strain upon an electric light plant when
the nights lengthen and tho holiday
lighting demand Is greatest. "Tho
demand then,' he said, "far exceeds
that of any ither time of tho year.
"The situation as It stands now Is

that thero Is not enough power. Thu
clcctrts machinery Is overcrowded. It
Is running always at the danger point.
"Another thing affects the lighting
service here, which tho laymandocj
not .recognlte. This Is the great
amount of foliage, making constant In
terference with tho lines. Tho sway
ing of branches causes short circuits
that mnko tho lights flicker. I no
ticed this particularly at Walkiki.
"As soon as the new machinery on
tho way Is Installed It ought to remedy
everything. Thorc will of course bo a
transition period while changing from
tho old to tho new machinery. The
whole trouble has been that the de
mand has overtaken the supply. Two
years ngo It might hae been posslbln
to foresee the Incrcaso of demand. Tho
Increase In population tins been very
marked and It has been a struggle to
meet tho new requisitions tor light anil
"If, however, people would exercise
Judgment, when the strain Is great,
and not Icavo useless lights burning
thero would bo far less difficulty In
coping with tho situation."

OF CHINESE SOCIETY
At a Meeting Held Last Wednesday

llctoro Leong Chl-tso, the young Chi
nese rcforn.c . i j me to Honolulu, thero
was peace In thp camp of the Chlneso
of tho Islands but, since ho departed
for tho Orient, after having Induce 1
many of the Chinese of the country to
ally themselves with the Ileform party,
thero has been all manner of troublo
between these people anil thMns Wi'j
refused to foreswear allegiance to the
old order of- things. This growing
abyss hns been widening gradually but
surely and fins now assumed propor
tions that may lead to an open rupturo
In tho near future. Those, who have
followed theeports of th doings of
tho 'various meetings of the Chlneso.
published In this paper, will have seen
the trend matters are taking.
The very latest cvldencn of this split
came to light yesterday when notices
written on red paper and posted In
prominent places In the new China
town by members of the Lung Til rlnn,
were-rend by the men of tho lluk.i nr.d
Puntee clans. In passing, It might be
said that the Lung Tu people nr
against reform and the Hnkn and Pun
tec people, for It. In order to nrrlvo
at the cause of this action on the paitl
of the Lung Tu men, it will be nocea-
sary to revert to the meeting of tho
Chinese United Society last Wedno-
day night nt which the officers for the
ensuing year were chosen.
At that time, the Haka and Puntee
men carried the day. Tho former put
In a president, a secretary and u treas
urer from their ranks while tho Pun
tees, the friends of tho Hakas. put In
the vice president. The Lung Tu men
were left out In the cold and, naturally.
they did not like In They sworo they
would call for another election and thut
they would yet succeed In ousting the
officers, eld-ted legally, and put In their
own men. The Hakn and IJuntco men
did not think much of this threat and
laughed at tho Idea that the Lung Tu
men would be fon'leli enough to mnk
such n break.
However, ns Is stated above, the red
notices wero posted up yesterdaj.
There were to tho efftrt that the elec
tion referred to lud nut been legal and
that there should be a new election.
Tho meeting for this purposo was an
nounrcd ns being arranged for Wednes
day night Instead of being In tho
least disturbed by the notices, the Haka
and Puntee men are laughing In their
sleeves. They say that fifteen member
constitutes a quorum nccordlng to their
by-laws and that thero wero twenty
four members at the meeting. This, of
course, precludes all possibility of thn
Lung Tu men being able, to make their
point Btlck and the Chlneso nro non
looking forward with a great deal of
Interest to the night of tho meeting in
order to see how the Lung Tu men sr
going to get around this.
