"Walahole Water "Company, Limit
ed, will be organized to develop the
water rights under the agreement
s Just made 'with the government for
the benefitof Oahu Sugar Company's

epective options, besides which there
are rights of way to be acquired from

cinlty of .the water resources.
No steps have ,yet been taken to
ward finlnrlng - the water company,

auctioning of the water license by
the . government. It . has been esti
mated 4hat the works will cost about
$1,500,000, a tunnel having to.be driv
, en through the Koolau '"' range." Prob
ably the capital stock will bo around
that figure, and the-talk of the street
is that there, will be no difficulty
about floating It. - Although, as inti
mated already, some negotiations" for
incidental privileges are still pending.
. it li not thought that there will be
any trouble in that regard. - The mag
nitude, of ; the enterprise and its un
told economic value can hardly fall to
appeal to all neighboring Interests

- atively inconsequential;: consldera-
tions, vV;. '' ,
I So far as appears on the surface of
things,. It ought not 'to be many
'.months until actual work begins on

will; add one more to the great irri
gation achievements that have help
ed to make the sugar industry of Ha
waii world-famous.
-The government's rights have been
nettled and the plans for the auction
of these rights were given 1 nthe Star
Bulletin yesterday. , The most 1m-
portant , private rights involved, it is
stated, are those of Lv L. McCandless
atWalahole and Walkanel Mrs.. Mary
Foster and the Bishop estate. - This
estate has lands on the lee side of
the island extending up to the top of
the range, it was explained today.

-clal Star-Bulletin Cable
SEATTLE, Wash., Oct. 11. Secretary of the Interior Fisher arrived
here today on the cruiser Maryland, together with Secretary Knox. In an
interview given out here in which he touched briefly upon the investiga
tion he conducted in Hawaii, Mr. Fiisher makes the statement that "one
reform we all agreed on was that public utility corporations in the islands
ought to be placed under the supervision of a public utilities commission.
The charges against Frear were lost sight of because of the bigger question."

L. L. McCandless and the Demo
cratic r 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
orm announcements, but of finances.
The story from Democratic campaign
headquarters is that McCandless has
refused so far to contribute to the
county campaign, and no secret Is
madcr of the fact that the county
campaign management resents it
deeply. - . " .
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
penre in' running -his 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.
According to the "inside" political
tips, the county campaign is not at
all flush of 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-1
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
respondence went on which finally
resulted in the pretty bride traveling
all the way front Dublin to Honolulu
to become the wife of her former
school chum.
After the ceremony a reception
was held at the home of Mr. Thomas
Kennedy on Kalakaua avenue, where
the happy couple were the recipients
of many beautiful presents and were
given the congratulations of a host of
friends. The guests danced until the
small hours of the morning and dain
ty -refreshments were served. The
bride cut the wedding cake, carrying
out the time-honored tradition.
After a short honeymoon at Hale
iwa. Mr. and Mrs. Dinele will h at

Jack: Desha, the Harvard student
whom Delegate Kuhio has chosen as
his private secretary, will not be nam
ed representative of the commercial
bodies in Washington, if the present
sentiment among leading members of
the Chamber of Commerce and the
Merchants' association holds good
next winter.
The resignation or George McK. Mc
Clellan has left two bodies without a
representative at the national capital,
and Desha, as the private secretary to
Kuhio, is in the natural order of suc
cession in line for the job, but local
businessmen express the opinion that
he has neither the influence nor the
experience to make the kind of repre
sentative they want at Washington.
Desha is highly regarded here, but
his youth is against his getting the
position, as he had been planning to
enter the Harvard law school when
his appointment as secretary to Ku.
hio sent him to Washington Instead.
It was reported today that both bod
ies are looking around for a repre
sentative and that so far there has
been 'no choice made.
The question of increase in wharf
age charges at all public piers in the
Territory will be taken up by the
uoara or Harbor Commissioners at
an early date, on the report of Com
missioner Wakefield, who was re
cently appointed a committee of one
to investigate the situation. His re-
port is now completed In part, and
De &aId yesterday that he will recom
mend the increase in wharfage rates
as a result of the facts he has discov
ered in the course of his investiga
tion. 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
entitled tne dignity ot tne 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 Dy surr

point on which local experts are
more than doubtful.
"It is hard to make out from the
brief newspaper dispatches just who

Campbell, adjutant general of the De
partment of Hawaii- this morning.
Naturally, every army officer is in

little is known here of actual condi
