Punahou Residences Endan
gered by Fight Now Going,
to U. S. Court
One of the most valuable blocks of
Improved property In the Punahou
residence section is in peril of having
its titles upset by the decision of
U. 8. Judge Dole on the disposition
of the 910.000 award to the John Ii
Httate, Ltd., for land taken by con
demnation for the Pearl Harbor naval
station. If the decision be left stand
ing as final, or if it be sustained by
the United States Supreme Court in
the event of an appeal on behalf of
the Ii corporation, owners of homes
in the locality mentioned will be li
able to become defendants in eject
ment cults that Is, unless some other
legal mode of. settlement with the re
mlnderraen under Judge Il's will can
be made.
Among the properties involved in
this situation of clouded title are the
Pleasanton Hotel-roriglnally the home
of the late H. A. I sen berg, the 'resi
dence of G. P. Wilder, part of the
premises of IL C : Scott nd ' part of
the premises of Richard Ivers. The
area in question; isjiorth of Wilder

F. Judd, aj guardian pi Irene II, then
a minor, under the' presumption that

the property. Judge Dole's decision,
as already reported,' is to the effect
that Irene H. (np.w:HollowayK owned,

will and testament ; In the meantime

. Hawaii was well represented at the
World's Rubber Exposition just held
in New York, both in the personality
or its delegate and in the exhibit. Wil
bur A. Anderson, the delegate in at
tendance from the Hawaiian Rubber
Growers Association, is manager of
the Nahiku Rubber Co. and the American-Hawaiian
Rubber Co., and one of
the leading pioneers of the industry
in Hawaii. As to the exhibit from
this Territory, the following extract
from a report In the New York World
indicates that it was a worthy one:
"This exhibition is the first of its
kind to be held In this country, and
In some respects is the most com
plete over put together in the world.
The value of the crude rubber alone
on exhibition is given as IK75.000.
The two leading exhibits, as to size
and completeness, come from Brazil
and from the British possessions in
the Far East, bu Hawaii and the
Philippines are not far behind."
According to the New York Press,
the exhibit was seven times as big
as the World states. The World re
port was printed before the exposi
tion opened. Beginning its report of
the show the day after the opening,
the Press said: "With 3000 tons of
rubber, valued at $6,000,000. and with
scores of mechanical and agricultural
products on display, the third annual

Land Board at Special Meeting
Dec des on Details of Im
portant License
Plantation Arranging to Pro
ceed with Construction of
the . Great Tunnel
Governor Frear and the board of
land commissioners this morning
reached a definite final decision on
the matter of the Waiahole water li
cense, after a lengthy conference in
the senate chamber at the govern
ment building with Attorney Frank
Thompson, representing the Oahu
Sugar plantation.
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. The
land board has fixed the upset price
that shall be paid the territory for
the use of the Waiahole water
sources at $15,000 per annum, a flat
rate: for which in return the pur.
chasers are to receive license to the
entire water supply for thirty years,
with the privilege of renewal for
three 10-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
flo hot go' toVcQncerns which may
compete with the owners of the big
Should the license be renewed at
the .end of the. first 10-year period,
the territory may. take a still larger
amount dally from the' ditch, and at!
the end of sixty years from the date
of the original purchase of the license
all rights to the use of the tunnel and j
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 only 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.
To make the 6ale of the water li
cense perfectly proper it will be of
fered at public auction, and the ad
vertisement of this sale is to be pre
pared and made very shortly. The
Oahu Plantation will be the only bid
der, however.
"As the prices go up on the coast,
of course we have to raise them here,"
said F. J. Lowrey, president of Lew
ers & Cooke, Ltd., this afternoon in
reference to a Seattle dispatch shown
him telling of a raise in lumber there.
"There will be no change in prices
here until these changes mentioned
iu the dispatch come into effect
There was an advance on the first of
July, which I talked about with, you
at the time, but no further advance
has been made.
"The dispatch speaks of an advance
of 13.92 a thousand, while our ad
vance on July 1 was only $2.50. There
will be no further advance here un
less there be an advance at the other
end. You see the article merely gives
an estimate that" there will be a
shortage in the cut of lumber."
Following is the dispatch to which
reference is made:
SEATTLE. Oct. 1. The average
mill price of lumber has advanced $3.
92 a thousand feet over the low price
of last December, according tt) fig
ures compiled by W. C. Miles, mana
ger of the West Coast Lumber Manu
facturers' association. December 28.
1911 ,the average mill price was $9.99
and the average for the first three
weeks of September was $13.91. Da
ta compiled by Miles also showed that
the shipment of lumber since January
has exceeded the cut by 73,336.000
feet. Miles estimates that the ship
ments for the year, if present demand
continues, will exceed the cut bv 111,
363,000 feet.
The Woman's society of Central Un
ion church will give a retention at 8
o'clock p. m. to Rev. and Mrs. Dean
K. Wickes, the Central Union laymen's
missionaries who are going out to
China in a few days. All members and
friends are invited.
