New Schedule Benefits
Coast , Cities Have Rates for Irrigation
and Animals Many Times High
er Than Those of
Several months ago tlio Bulletin gave
a dill explanation of tho new systcn
of water rates. 4 It was stated then that
the premises of water rata payeis
throughout tho city were being measur
ed for the purpose of ascertaining thu
rates they respectively should pay un
der the new system. Another thing
clearly demonstrated was that thu
change would result in the poorer
climes having to pay less for watr
than before, while the charges to all
would bs fairly In proportion to the
value of their, respective privileges.
At tho present semt-nnnual time of
payment of rates, the new system Is be
Ins put In operation with new places.
It will be extended to the old privi
leges as soon as the arrangements havi)
all been completed. Then a full sche
dule of rates will bo published.
In tho meantime someone has man-
ngod to secure n local paper as a
medium for rebelling against tho new
rating. To prove how unjust tlio at
tack upon the system Is J. W. Pratt,
so -rotary of the Water Works, showe
n Bulletin reporter the revised schedule
of rates changed somewhat from tho
one Minister Young aproved, which
waj tho one formerly noticed In this
p.tper, by his successor. Superintendent
of Public Works JlcCandless together
with the schedule cards of San Fran

Tlio new rates afford a house mini
mum of $8 a year, which Is far below
anything hitherto charged a domicile.
It Is for a house of one story occupy
ing up to COO square feet of ground

rameuto has tho minimum of id for n

far higher than Honolulu's. It Is In
Irrigation and water for animals, huw
ever, that the new system Is liberal In
the extreme compared .wyth tConst
Sacramento charges 30 cents a month
for 30 square yards of Irrigating sur
face, nnd half a cent for every addition
al yard. Honolulu's rate Is half a cent
n ear for the square yard, no annual
charge to be less than $3, when pre
scribed hours of Irlgatlon are observed,
and where tho liours are not restricted
It Is threo cents a square yard, A cal
culation shows that the rates for Irri
gation In Sau Francisco and Sacin
mento are twelve times as high as iu
Then, as to animals. For each horse
and cow Sacramento charges 30 cents
a month, or I3.C0 a year. Here the
rati?. are: Horses and mules, $3 a
year each up to tho fifth animal; then
$2, 1 and 7B cents for successive stages
until more than fifty animals nro count

Deputy Sheriff Chllllngworth asked

There wa3 a v.y bad accident at :!.
wharf of the a It. & L. Co. this morn
ing nt about 8 o'clock which may "yet
result In the death of l.eong Yin, an
old vegetable Chinaman who has ben
In this country for jcars.
For a long time past, l.eong Yin has
been the owner of a small boat In
which he has been wont to go out to the
various sailing vessel In port to supply
them with fresh vegetables and fruit.
He started out as usual this morn
ing nnd went to the vessels that had
ordered vegetables of him. Having
finished this work, he returned to the,
railroad wharf from which be had
Just at about the time mentioned
above, the steamer Kauai was moving
away from tho wharf In order to re
turn to the Inter-Island wharf, having
finished her work at the former place.
Tho Wind was blowing a galo and all
tho vessels in port were having a hard
tlmo of It. The Kauat waB no ex
ception to the rule. She had both h el
bow and stern lines fast to the wharf
but had swun gout somo distance.
The Chinaman, seeing the opening
between .the wharf on the steamer,
pushed off his boat and made for the
opening In order to get closer In. Tho
natives on the Kauai cried out to him
to get out of the way. He might foe
crushed against the wharf.
Leong Yin persisted In whnt he was
doing Just long enough to plaice him
between the steamer nnd the wharf.
Just then thero was a strong gust o
wind and tho Kauai was blown In to
ward the wharf with great force.
The Chinaman saw what was coming
and scrambled up on the wharf. Had
he remained there, he would have been
perfectly safe but Just us his boat was
being mashed between the steamer and
the wharf, he mado a flying leap Into
It In an attempt to save it.
Thero was n crunching sound. The
boat was mashed to pieces and tho poor
old Chinaman was caught and squeezed
between the steamer and the wharf.
The steamer moved away as soon as it
was possible nnd the Chinaman lifted
from the mashed boat. He was placed
nnd the wharf and the patrol wagon
was summoned. l.eong Yin was put
Into this conveyance and taken to the
Queen's Hospital where he remained
for a very short tlmo for tho old man's
relatives ami friends came around an-1

Mr. Minviello Is a young man of
pleasant address. He is of American
parentage, born In Porto nlco and hus
a complete knowledge of the nntlio
Porto lllcans and their chnractci Utl".
Talking of conditions In his Island
home, Mr. Mlnvlclle In responso to
queries by a Dulletln representative,
"The majority of the Porto Mean

among thoso most seriously nffected by

for Hawaii since the men are all will

was no chance of interference from the

obstreperous and officers of the ship
put them In Irons. Immediately thu
wholo party was In nn uproar doirtand
Ing tho release of their friends, I went

They said 'If you put them In Irons wa
don't object.' This Is simply an Instance
showing how easily tho Porto lllcans
