Punahou Residences
gered by Fight Now Going
to U. S. Court
One of the most valuable blocks of
improved properly in the Puliation
residence section is in peri! of having
if k titles upset by the decision of
U. H. .Judge Dole on the disposition
of the !Jl(i,0(iO award to the John li
KM ate. Ltd., for land taken by con- ,
dtinnation for the Pearl Harbor naval
station. If the decision l-e left stand
ing as llnal. or it it be sustained by
the United States Supreme Court in
the event of an appeal on behalf of
the li corporation, owners of homes
In the locality mentioned will be li
able U) become defendants in eject
ment suits that is, unless some other
legal mode of settlement with the re
mindermen under Judge Ii's will can
be made.
Among the properties involved In
thfs situation of clouded title are the
Pleasanton Hotel-originally the home
of the late II. A. Isenberg, the resi
dence of G. P. Wilder, part of the
premises of R. ('. Scott and part of
the premises of Richard Ivers. The
area in question is north of Wilder
avenue and west of Punahou street.
It was sold in 1879 by the late A.
P.'Judd. as guardian of Irene li. then
a. minor, under the presumption that
a fee simple title vested in her for
the property. Judge Dole's decision,
as already reported, is to the' effect
that Irene li (now Holloway) owned
only a life estate in the property en
Joyed by her under her father's last
will and testament In the meantime
the Punahou property mentioned has
increased in value through improve
ments and otherwise probably from
50 to 100 per cent.
Possibly Mrs. Holloway may her
self make a settlement having am
ple means with the other heirs of
the estate which will protect the in
nocent grantees of her guardian of
thirty-three years ago and their suc
cessors in possession, as well as the
settlement that 6he will be required
to make, if the Dole decision is main
tained, on her own behalf for what
benefits have accrued to her from the

As a result the Oahu Plantation ' or
whatever company is formed to han
dle' the undertaking agrees to begin
actual construction of the long tunnel
through the Koolau mountain range
within the next six months. Tin.
land board has fixed the upset price
that shall be paid the territory for
the use of the Waiahole water
sources at $l."i.ooo per annum, a flat
rate: for which in return the pur.
chasers ate to receive license to the
entire water supply for thirty years,
with the privilege of renewal for
three lo-year periods at the expira
tion of that time.
At the end of the thirty years the
Territory shall be entitled to take
4.000,000 gallons daily from the
stream at the leeward side of the isl
and, which it may sell to other con
sumers provided the 4,000,000 gallons
do not go to concerns which may
compete with the owners of the
Should the license be renewed at
the end of the first 10-year period,
the territory may take a still larger
amount daily from the ditch, and at
the end of sixty years from the dale
of the original purchase of the licence
all rights to the use of the tunnel and
ditch shall revert to the territory.
Of course these details have been
worked out in conference with the
Oahu Sugar plantation's representa
tives, as that is the onlv corporation
in a position to construct the long
tunnel. The form of the contract ar
ranged this morning is understood to
be satisfactory to that concern.

vertisement of this sale is to be pre

Oahu Plantation will be the only bid

the famous $18,000 battery New York secured from Indianapolis, today
evened, up the score in the world's series by defeating the Boston Red
Sox by a score of 2 to 1.
It war the play-off o yesterday's tie game and an immense crowd saw
the great Giant left-hander mow down the heavy hitters of the team
from Beantown.. Marquard was steadier than he has been for months
and he kept the seven hits well scattered. The New York infield braced
splendidly and but one error was counted against the National leaguers.
Manager Jake Stahl of the Boston Americans, sent his prize spitball
pitcher, O'Brien, to the box, but O'Brien was unsteady at critical moments
and Bedient was sent in to succeed him. Carrigan started to catch and
was replaced by Cady, who is more used to handling Bedient. The Bos-
ton team put up. a magnificent fielding game, not a misplay being regis
tered but they could not hit Marquard whn men were on bases and were
almost helpless at bat.
