Tim Inforiiiutlou given out today by
tho member, of the club Is that, under
the plans drawn up by tho department
for tho Kaplolanl Ulrls' Home In Kn
lllil Valley, there Is no provision for a
water supply. This tlicy think may
lead to the water that is to bo piped
uciohh from Nuiiunu being mixed with
their artesian wuter for the supply of
the homo and the upper parts of thu val
ley. If such a thing Is attempted they
are preparing to sun for an Injunction
prohibiting tho superintendent from
lurrying out this plan.
At the same time they are not iiullii

tendent, and a deputation Is to wait on
him this aftetnoon to try and llnd out
Just what his plans really ure. They
are going to Insist, however, that their
water supply be left strictly alone and
that some other provision bo mutlo for
the girls' home.

WHERE IS PERCY
Where Is Percy Hunter;
That Is 11 question that Is uppermost
in the minds of Alexander Hume ford
and other lle wires connected with
the Hands. Around-tho-PiicUlo.
The dinner to have been gjvcu at
Iho University Club this evening In
honor of Hunter Is therefore declared
postponed pending tho appearance of
tho distinguished Australian booster.
A wireless message received this
morning from the purser of the ('ana-dlaii-Atistrtillan
liner Makiir.i, dun to
arrive from Vancouver and Victoria
this afternoon, states that Percy Hunt
er Is not 11 passenger In that vessel
bound for Australia.
The last word from Hunter was to
the effect that If he caught the Ma
kurn he would spend but 11 single day
In Honolulu, but that If he missed the
Makurii lie would go on to Han Krnn
clsio and sail from there, spending two
or threo weeks In Honolulu, so that
at uny time lie may urrlvo here.
