NEW YORK, N. Y., Oct 11. "Smoky" Joe Wood again held New
York's batters at his mercy today, and again the Red Sox defeated the
Giants on their own grounds, making the series two to one in favor of
the American leaguers.
Although Wood yielded nine hits, they were so well scattered that
New York could make but one run, while Boston's eight hits produced
three tallies. Each team had one error.
"Big-Jeff Tesreau started in the box for the Giants, but he could not
stand off the hard-hitting Bostonians and he was replaced by "Red" Ames.
The Bostons were fleet on the bases and in the fieldand every Nek York
rally was nipped in the bud.

Democratic Leader Fails to Put
- Up as Expected for the
County Campaign
L. L. McCandless. and the Demo
cratic leaders of this county, are on
the verge of another , break such as
helped to defeat McCandless two
years ago.
This time it is not a matter of plat
form announcements, but of finances.
Ihe story from Democratic campaign
headquarters is that McCandless has
refused so far to contribute to , the
county campaign, and no secret is
made of the fact that the county.

According!- to what the Democratic
leaders say,' , McCandless was ap
proached just before he left on his
present tour of Hawaii and Maui 'and
told that the party was very short of
cash; dangerously short, In fact He
was told that the campaign In this
county would help his chances a great
deal and that as a matter Of fairness
as, well as politics he ought to help
the party exchequer. ,
The.' story ? goes that ; McCandless
said' he was under considerable ex
pense In running bis own campaign
for Delegate, And " that just , then he
wasn't 'In a position to contribute.
His point has not been at all , well
taken by the county campaign man
agement, and one of the prominent
Democrats was frank in saying today
that McCandless' attitude had antag
onized the party here' to a consider
able extent, .v !-:X
According' to the "Inside" political
tips, the county campaign Is not at
all flush ot cash, . When the news
came out some days ago that the
management had secured a small cor
ner on the auto supply for election
day, It was supposed that the treas
ury must be full, but this is denied. -

Mr. Dingle came to Honolulu five
years ago and engaged in the carpen
try business. Back in the "old coun
try" he and his bride were school
mates and during the years that he
has been a resident of this city a cor

The question of increase in wharf
age charges at all public piers in the
Territory will be : taken up by the
Board of Harbor Commissioners at
an early date, on the report of Com
missioner vvaKeneia, wno was re
cently appointed a committee of one
to investigate the situation. His re

he said yesterday that he will recom

Below are given some of the fig
ures he has compiled, showing briefly
the general situation as regards both
private and public piers.
In all there are sixty-one wharves
in the Territory outside Oahu. Of
these twenty-six are Territorial
wharves and thirty-five are privately
owned. The majority are not really
enuuea tne aignity or the name
"wharf." as they are little more than
mere landings; in fact all the Ter
ritorial landings handle freight and
passengers by surf boat. Three pri
vate wharves land freight and pas
sengers direct from the vessel to the
pier; thirteen land freight by cable
and nineteen land freight by surr
boats. v
The estimated value of the Terri
torial landings structures only is
$175,000 to $200,000; the Territorial
funds invested during the presenl
biennial period in government land
ings approximate $56,680, and the cost
of maintenance and repair for the
same period has been $19,500. The
revenue from the government land
ings on all these islands, which, as
already stated are outside Oahu, is
At nine private landings no charges
are made to consignees; at eleven
practically no business is done out
side that of the owners of the land
ings, and at twelve private landings
charges are made to consignees of
freight, and at three where general
freights are handled and charges
made, the landings show a loss to
the owners. These last three men-
