port to Contrary
'They know more than I do about
it" was the quiet comment of John
T. McCrosson on a report in the Ha
waii Herald shown to him, which was
that tho Kau ditch project would like
ly be abandoned on account of the
death of Edward Pollitz.
'There is no ground for such .an
opinion as far, as 1 know," Mr. Mc
Crosson continued. "Mr. Pollitz nat
urally took a great deal of interest in
the scheme' because his company had
contracted to take sixty million gal
lons of water from the ditch."
"That is Hutchinson?"
'Yes. As to my interest in the mat
ter being only the lending of my name
to help' friends who had helped me, all
1 need say is that it is my coin and
that of my associates which has been
expended on the project up to thei
present time. If 1 made the state-

Following is the article the Herald
"A good many local people are ex
pressing doubt at the present time as
to whether the plans for the Kau
ditch, for which a franchise was ob
tained from Congress during the last
session, will go through. The reason
given for this doubt comes as the
result of the death of Pollitz, the San
Francisco broker, who was the presi
dent op the Hutchinson Sugar Com
pany, it is believed that it is likely
that his death may result in the aban
donment of the plans for the big irri
gation project or at least cause their
postponement for some time.
"Mr. Pollitz was one of the strongest
supporters of the Kau ditch plan and

would never have gone th rough to the

T.hich distributed the khaki-clad so

defending force through which the
companies belonging to Fort Shafter
tried to force their way. As 13 usual

The problem was divided into two

so that the Schofield battalions could

Shortage in: Crop May. Reach
100,000 Tons, Says
Stock Broker
"If the rains continue, stocks will
boom again," a stock broker said this
morning. "They may say it's politics
that's causing the slump, but politics
really cuts very little ice In the situa
tion. "Many people have no idea of the
seriousness of the drought to the
sugar crop. Olaa, for instance, will
have but 24,000 tons instead of 28,000
as estimated. Taking the whole terri
tory, the shortage on the coming crop
due to the dry period will be from 50,
000 to 100,000 tons.
"Some of the Hamakua plantations
have come short in their stipulated
supply from the ditch. Without rain
the ditch has run low and the losa,
from seepage has been very great"

j The long drought was partially
1 broken early this morning with a
downpour that lasted, off and on, fo
some hours. The territorial . water
works department said this afternoon
that the rain was not heavy enough to
relieve the water situation very much,
and the level in the Nuuanu reservoir
system is still very low.
Neither Castle & Cooke nor H. Hack
feid & Co. received any definite news
about the rain at the different plan
tations on this island. From other
sources it is learned that showers fell
all over the island yesterday and last
night. Three-quarters of an inch is
one estimate of the precipitation,
which is perhaps not far wrong. From
the appearance of the horizon over
the mountain ranges all. day, it looks
as if a rainy season of some conse
quence had at last arrived. Occasion
al drizzles in town all day encourage
the hope.
Circuit Judge Cooper this morning
signed the order for the final con
demnation of the Palolo water source,
which is to be acquired by the Terri

to the Palolo Land and Improvement
Company this afternoon, completing
the transfer of the property.
