AN IUU OF FIRE
An alarm of lire was turned In at
about 10:30 o'clock last night from
King street In the Immediate Iclnlty
of the fire of Sunday night. The blaze
started In a Japanese lodging house
and but for the prompt action of Olll
cer Esplnda, the building would In all
probability hno burned to the ground
and Jeopardized adjoining property.
The building in question Is In tho
rear of the Oceanic (las & Electric Co
It Is a long two-story affair used chief
ly by Japanese. Tho room on the cor
ner of the nlleyway leading to King
street Is used ns the office. Behind this
Is a room where cooking is done. Di
vided oft fiom this with Japauese lat
tice work aro two or three small rooms
fitted out with bunks. These were oc
cupied In tho evening.
A Japanese lodger in this place acci
dentally overturned a lamp nnd the
bowl breaking, the oil spread about and
set tho room on lire. The boarder made
no attempt to extinguish the flames
but made a grab for his clothes and
allsc and started for the alley, secral
of the Inmates of the place following.
Officer Esplnda was on King street
at the time the alarm was sounded
and ran Into the place where the tiro
was blazing. He organized a buckit
brigade and soon had the flames under
control so that when the fire depart
ment arrived on the scene, there was
nothing to be done.

VAIu WI SIFTED
OAUU COLLEGE PROPERTY
IN TAX APPEAL COURT
CLAIM OF EXEMPTION OF OLD
PUNAHOU SCHOOL LOT COM
BATED OTHER CASE3
Suburban property alucs were sift
ed before the Tax Appeal Court ester
day. The appeal was that of the Oahu
College Trustees from assessment of
$233,180 Instead of the returned al-
nation of $03,020. The Increase was
on the College Hills tract of town lots.
returned at $01,000 and raised to ?1G4,'
000 by Assessor Pratt.
Percy il. Pond, real estate man for
II. Waterhouse & Co, who for a time
was the agent of the property, was the
principal witness called b A. F. Judd,
who appeared for the trustees. Pond
testified that he considered the full
cash nlue of the unsold portions of
the College Hills tract to be $60,000. He
based his conclusions on the fact that
the unsold lots were the culls; the le8
desirable pieces. The prices brought
at tho auction were remarkably good
owing to the fact that the bidders wern
wealthy men who had an interest In
Oahu College. Among these he men
tioned P. C. Jones, II. P. Baldwin. J
B. Athcrton, etc., some of whom wero
now desirous of disposing of the same
property. Ho admitted that the
scheduled prices set by the trustees
made the total of $164,000 but said this
figure was too high, as It could not be
obtained, unless the lots wero sold
singly. Even taken singly the lots
were not worth oor $131,000 and If
purchased as a whole by any syndicate
not one-half of that price could bo
obtained. Other similar tracts held by
syndicates were costing as much as
sixteen per cent annually and at the
present outlook the College Hills tract
would remain unsold for fie enrs or
more. Pond said that he personally
would not undertake tho sale for lcS4
than ten per cent, which would lean1
fle per cent for his commission and a
similar amount for advertising and
other expenses. Taking this Into con
sideration and also the cost of water,
taxes, a reasonable profit on the In
vestment, etc., he did not consider tho
tract taken as a whole to be worth
more than half what the trustees had
set upon It, $00,000
Mr. Pond said that his wife had pur
chased a lot a short time ago, at ten'
cents per foot, but she bad to take It
because of other ln estments. The w a-!
ter works upon the land were not en
tirely satisfactory and cost the college
$000 per )ear, but he had allowed $700
per acre for It. Without the water
the land could not be used as residence
lots. Speaking of other tracts of land
the witness said that the Hawaiian
Board had been offered a tract of land
of 24 Vi acres at the crest of Walalao
Ridge, Kalmukl for $20,000 by the
Gear-Lansing syndicate but had refus
ed It. This land was tquare and better
located, and there was a guarantee ot
rapid transit. Besides the Hawaiian
Hoard was veiy anxious to secure n
tract of land but would not pay such nr.
L. C. Abies stated that, comparing
the lots btlll remaining with those al
ready sold, he did not believe the land
In the hands of the trustees was worth
tenty-fle per cent less. This was the
general depreciation all ocr the city
on suburban propcity, though he d'd
not believe there had been such a de
preciation In the values of city proper
ty, which Is scarce and Inore desirable
To sell the whole tract he thought
would be worth forty per cent, this In
addition to the twenty-five per cent
deduction already spoken of. The hold
ing of the trustees nt $164,000 ho
thought was too high, and he did not
believe the value a man puiB upon his
land should be taken ofr taxation pur
poses, as It Is not the market value.
The tax assessor's claim was that
ho Is entitled to estimate the value ot
property for taxation purposes ut tho
figure set upon It by the owner.
An Interesting question was raised
In regard to the college property at
Miller and Vlncjard streets, which had
been returned for taxation at $1020
and which had been increased to $10.
000. Professor French, principal of
Punahou Preparatory School, testified
that the property had beeii used by the
school during the ear. Proper!) usel
for educational purposes Is exempt
from taxation under tho statute. At
torney Wilder for tho assessor asked
that the court tulc out all tho evidence
given by Mr. French on the giound
that the college was not entitled to any
exemption, having failed to claim It in
the return to tho assessor. He argued
that the return of the piopeity ut $10.1(1
was evidence that the trustees had not
Intended to claim the exemption, and
the) could not make any deduction un
less bhown In the return. Mr. .lurid
claimed that the assessor could at any
time allow a return to be amended. Tho
court reserved Us decision until todav
Itcgnrding the Manoa pasture tract
of land of 135 acres, which had been
Increased from $3500 to $4200 by tho
assessor, there was evidence thut tho
land was steep, Inaccesslblo and of no
value for cultivation, and worth llttlo

two other small appeals were also
