Cecil Brown Attacks Legality
. of Revolving Fund; Asks
Checked abruptly by an injunction
suit brought by Cecil Drown, president
of the FIret - National Dank of Hawaii,
.the Kewalo .reclamation - project has
encountered a ntumbllng block that now
promises, to delay active work in the
diftrlct for an Indefinite period of time.
Petition for an - injunction against
Territorial Auditor Fisher, Marston
Campbell and the Lord-Young Engin
eering Cempany was filed In the Cir
cuit Court-this morning )y Attorney
A; A.- Wilder, who represents Cecil
i Drown,, trustee under the will of Ka
lelpua, owner of a piece of land 3500
feet In area on -the southeast side of
Kanoa lane, which wouldi be'asuessed
for the proposed improvement.. 7
Briefly,- the situation Is that'the own

to compei the. improvement, also the
constitutionality of Chapter 83 of the 1
Revised . Laws of the Territory, under
which provision for, the reclamation
was made by the Legislature. ,

Incidentally, it is stated, the Lord -Voung

obtained. the contract for filling in tfie

plaintiff to 'be a' friendly .' test case,
which will. be. rushed through the low
er, court and "up to the Supreme Court
for an early, decision; to enable work
to beglri at the earliest possible mo
ment, the fact remains that the filing
of thepetitlon for the restraining or
der comes as a complete surprise to
the attorney gerCeral's office.
Attorney! Wilder, says he Informed
Mafston Campbell, superintendent of
public 'Vprks, some days ago that the
suit was to be filed. Attorney General
Alex Lindsay Jr. has'been out of the
city for some time, and First Assistant
Attorney General A, G. Smith said this

The Improvement in the Kewalo dis
trict is intefided as a part of a vast
project in varipus parts of the city, for
which the Territory set aside a re
volving fund of $250,000. The filling in
of lowlands was to be let in large con
tract. and.it was planned that owners
of individual pieces affected should pay
their pro rata; but in case they re
fused, the cost was to be assessed
against the property. Thus the owners
would be compelled to pay for the im
provement, while the revolving fund,
paid out In bulk for the active work,
would b gradually returned as the
owners paid Up. This sum could then
be used in a. similar manner to improve
other tracts. ' v '

The allegations set forth in Brown's
petition in part follow:
' "That said defendant Lord-Young

H. L Strange Has a Definite
Plan for Bringing Visitors
U. S..WITH LITERATURE
Will Carry on Campaign by
Corresponding With Gas
.I:., Men of Country 1
Aiming, three years In advance, to
get seven or eight nundred gas men
to come to Honolulu In a chartered
ship n 1915, Is the optimistic Inten
tionbut definite plan of H. L.
Strance. manager of the Honolulu
Gas Co. This is not "the dream of a
day," to this ardent promotionist, but
something to which he has aireaay
devoted- considerable thought and
time and to which he expects to de
vote much more during tne nexi mree
years.. ' '
According to statements made to a
Star-Bulletin representative ? this
morning bv Mr. Strange, more , than
twenty gas associations will hold a
Joint convention In San Francisco
during the Pan-Pacific Exposition at
which an attendance or 30U0 to 4iuu
gas : men is expected. All arrange
ments have been made for this Joint
convention . except ' , deciding ; the
month In which It is to be held, but
this will probably be September.
The American Gas Institute, formed
in 1906 ; with a roll of 1400, 1 is the
largest ' of these associations, the
membership being restricted to prom
inent gas' engineers and' managers of
the country. ' H. L. strange Is a mem
the country. ; .
Strange a Member. ,s . - - t
H. L. Strange is a member
cf this association. There are about
twenty-four other associations N; of
cas men In different sections - of
the -United States. Through ; the ef-J
torts Of the Pacific Coast Gas Association,-
these v various organizatiQns
were Induced to hold a joint conven
tion in San Francisco In 1915. j.
Between now and the 1915 convene
tion every association : . will hold
three annual conventions. ; Mr.
Strange intends to deluge these con
ventions with promotion literature in
an attempt to create a desire among
the members to visit. Honolulu. And
from now on, at all times, he will
carry on a constant campaign by cor
responding with the gas men- of the
United States, In his effort to ; get
them to come to Honolulu.
I believe that the fact, that there
are three years in which to carry on
this campaign will result in the suc
cess of my plan," says Mr. Strange. '
Lei s Create Interest
"1 sent two JiLudred leis to a gas
association meeting last year, and the
interest created,, caused me to make
plans to get the gas. men to come here
in 1915. And I am crtain of succees.
It Is easy to persuade people to. visit
Hawaii when the facts are placed be
fore them. While on the coast the
last time-1 met about a dozen gas men
and four of them have already come
to Honolulu during their vocation.
"In just this proportion I expect to
get results In 1915. From the 3000
or 4000 gas men who will be in San

Thompson, Wilder, Watson & Lymer
received the following cablegram from
E. M. Watson, Washington, this morn
ing:' ., ' ; .
"Ivau bill passed Senate 'again
amended. House will not . amend.
Probably pass House next week," "
Mr. Thompson takes it that the
amending again done by the Senate
was to strike out the undestred amend
ment introduced by Senator Knute Nel
son of Minnesota, limiting the issue
of 'stock and bonds to $3,50U,000 of
each. As stated by Mr. McCrosson in
hi Star-Dulletirt interview, this amend
ment would give the company power
to water its intended capital 100 per
cent., and was, in fact, an unfriendly
proposal intended to hold up the meas
ure. Mr. Thompson's interpretation
agrees with the Star-Bulletin's .special
cablegram of yesterday which indi
cated that the-only restriction on the
company's ' financing, in the bil' as it
passed the Senate, was what existing
1 howpwri, f some
by way of perfecting the
bill, was made by the Senate, -for, had
it passed the second chamber;.' as
came from the House. It would not
have to go back to the latter body.

After' a delay of many weeks,
during which the navy engineers
and the Crydock contractors have
been making tesr after test, and dls
" proving theory after theory, by put
ting it to tedious practice, concrete
pouring in the big drydock at Pearl
Harbor will start again. At last
& mixture which will fulfill every one
of the requirements and which will
withstand the unusual ' conditions
found at the naval reservation, has
been arrived t at, and tomorrow ;the
big Tremie sets will continue . the
work of spreading the concrete In the
middle, "pocket" of Section 2; laying
the foundations under nearly .40 feet
of1 water. : -' - - -
While the engineers are sure tftat
they have a concrete that will harden
properly under water,, they are' by no
means- sure 1 that a cheaper one can
9iqt be " found, and.. while the long-delayed
work progresses, experiments
with' different mixtures will be kept
up. .The latest mixture uses Puget
Sound Sand, - and It is hoped that
Waianae crusher "dust can be substi
tuted," if - not,' In - full, at least .in part,
greatly reducing the cost- of the coa-
urete. ' - - '- -''? ;'
In any event, work, will be, cqntiQued

work.""v: ' ' I. ;"''";
With" the arrival next Week ; ofN Iear
Admiral Homer R. Stanford,; chief of
the Bureau of Yards , and 'Docks, a
board of navy officers will convene
to 'adjust the increased compensation
that should be given the drydock con
tractors for the changes in specifica
tions ! bf the concrete, and to take up
several other ' points in connection
with future construction and improve
ment at the new yard. '
As Pearl Harbor is to be the real
naval key "to fhe 'Pacific, and probably
the most important base owned by the
Untted States, every move here is
being watched with the closest inter
est In Washington, and Honolulu isJ
rapidly " laying- the lines for future
naval history. The visit of Admiral
Stanford ft very significant, and the
fact that he comes at almost the same
time that the : Army ; board meets to
consider the problem of defending
Oahu, may result in important joint
Recommendations. ' r ' ' ':
