SHELDON THINKS ORADMEOES TO
THEtEGISLATURE ilVEIL THE
SHOULD ACT EMORIAL
William J. Sheldon.- of Waimea. Ka
uai, veteran representative from the
Garden Island, believes that the pres
e,nt controversy, between -the-- Inter-
island Steam Navigation Company
nd thei Masters. Mates and Pilots1 As
sociation is important enough to de
serve , legislative attention, and ac
cordingly Mr. Sheldon plans to bring
the '.matter up when the legislature
moots next month.
Representative Sheldon is Quoted
by a man who returned from Kauai
yesterday as saying that if the Inter-
sland tries to put new men in as
mates there Is lltosly to be a marine!
master that will shock the territory.
He holds that the men brought down
from the coast have not enough expe
rience in local waters. ,
According to reports from Kauai,
Mr. Sheldon-hones to have the legis
lature take the matter up and if feas-
ble pass a law that would prevent
men unfamiliar with Hawaiian waters
being put in responsible positions re
quiring them to navigate the steamers
which ply in these waters.
It was pointed out this morning that
the territory very likely has no power
to pass such a law because of the
ederal regulations controlling inter-
island and high-seas navigation.
According to the following cable
gram received by Alexander & Bald
win, Ltd., this afternoon, the basis for
future arrivals of Hawaiian sugar in'
New York is a shade below the latest
quotation of 3.45 to the planters:
Oregonian arrived today, basis 3.45,
ast half of Alaskan's cargo.
American and Howell quote basis
for refined at 4.45. Federal and Ar-
buckle at 4.30
"Raws in position to affect basis for
Hawaiian arrivals are worth 3.42.

The generosity or S. M. Damon in do
nating to the navy all the fresh water
necessary for Pearl Harbor, has beeu
officially recognized by congress. Ad
miral Stanford, chief of the Bureau of
Yards and Docks who: was here last
gummer, brought the matter before
the house committee on naval affairs.
The army and navy Register re
ports the incident as follows:
The House committee on naval af
fairs has placed on record I s appre
ciation of the act of a citizen of the
island of Oahu upon which is
located the naval s'ation at
Pearl Harbor as well as an
Aimy post. Mr. Damon owns, a mag
nificent estate on the island upon a
parcel of which the government sunk
a well from which a natural flow of
500,000 gallons of water per day is ob
tained. This water is piped to the
raval station, a distance of three
miles. The water is unlimited and
provides a very satisfactory tupply.
.Vr. Damon made the nominal charge
lo the government of 1.00 for this
valuable privilege and civil Engineer
Stanford, chief of the bureau of yards
aud docks, stated that the result had
only been made possible on account
of the public spirited and generous
attitude of Mr. Damon.
It is well to makespecial mention
cf such an act as this and we publish
that part of the hearings before the
committee relating to the matter.

i A well has been sunk which is
yielding 900,000 gallons of water per
day. The water has been prononuced
by the bureau of medicine and sur-

fered by Mr. Damon at a cost of 11.

ernment what might be called an un
limited and satisfactory supply, whith
should be good for an indefinite
period. Execution of title papers
transferring the property is now be
ing arranged. The money perviously
appropriated will be used for neces
sary pumping equipment and for pipe
line to connect the well with the yard
a distance of about 3 miles, and to

as the men have been.
Without flowers of eloquence, but
with a directness an dforce that had

as much along social service and Drac
tical civic improvement lines as on
ethics and dogma. Mrs. L. Tenney

presided and on the rostrum were a
number of prominent women of Ho

sciousness of Christ." Raymond Rob
ins delivered his message simply but
powerfully. Hp read the second chap
ter of Luke and laid especial emphasis
on the 19th verse. "But Mary kept
these things and pondered them in
her heart." He spoke of the close
contact that Christ had with his fel
low men and of the great work he
accomplished through this associa
tion. One o the strongest points
brought out by the speaker was the
responsibility of the women in the
Men and Religion movement that is
going on all over the world. The
women must heln, he said, or the

stress was laid on the value of per
