NEW KIND OF
WALTER KIGHT DISPUTE WITH HAWAIIAN COMMERCIAL IS SET
TLED AND THE AHUFUAA OP WAILUKU SECURED FLUME TO
HE REPLACED I1Y A TUNNEL AND TUNNELLING FOR WATER TO
JiE CARRIED ON ON A LARGE SCALE.
Wutluku Sugar Company Is entering
upon an era of expansion that will
make it not only one ot the oldest plan-
tations In the Islands, as It has long
been one of the most proIUuuie.out win
make It also one of the largest In the
amount of Us output.
Litigation which has been going on
for years over water rights between
Walluku Sugar Company and Hawai
ian Commercial & Sugar Company has
been settled and an arrangement has
been entered into by which Walluku
exchanges water for land to the benefit
ot each plantation, the land enabling
iWalluku to expand and increase its
acreage. The exchange involves sev
eral considerations. First, the present
lease of water rights by which Ha
waiian Commercial gets two thirds of
the water from the Walluku com
pany's rights In Iao valley, continues
until the expiration of Its term, May
1907. After that Hawaiian Commer
cial is to get five-twelfths of the wa
ter. Tills is the settlement of the
water right dispute which has been a
subject of litigation foi seven or eight
In exchange. Walluku gets the Ahu
puaa of Walluku whlcli Claus Spreckels
got from the Crown Land Commis
sioners years ago and .which his sons
got from him and added to Hawaiian
Commercial and Sugar Company. In
addition Walluku gets all of the Ha
waltan Commercial & Sugar Company's
water above the hitter's ditch in AVal'
kapu commons, and alsp the Hawaiian
Commercial & Sugar Company's water
above the road wheh runs down to
Maalaea Ray. ,
These are the natural resources
which Walluku gets by the settlement
of its old standing diniculty with Ha
waiian Commercial. To develop these
resources, Walluku Sugar Company
lias voted to double its capital stock,
increasing ' t from $700,000 to $1,400,000.
Among other Improvements will be .a
new and larger mill of the general pat
tern of the Olaa and Walalua mills.
This Is expected to be ready for the
crop-of 1907. Other improvements are
the replacing of the flume, or .a part of
it which brings the water down from
Iao valley, going around a ridge, by a
tunnel, which will carry the water
through the ridge, thus shortening the
distance and thereby Increasing the
fall that can be given to it. The flume
has always been liable to damage by
falling rocks. This liability will be

ing water. Tunnelling for water de
velopment will be done In the four val
leys, Walliee, Walehu, Walkapu, and
Iao. The tunnelling In Walkapu Val
ley will be above the Hawaiian Com
mercial & Sugar Company's ditch. The
tunnelling In Iao and the other valleys
wiil be with a view of reaching and
using the water that now runs by un
derground channels to the sea, and so
fur as the purposes of sugar growing
are concerned, is wasted.
The Ahanuua of Walluku will add a
vast acreage to the plantation, but to
make sugar land of It, It requires wa
ter. An addition to the present sources
of water will come to Walluku Sugar
Company with the expiration of the
present lease of Iao Valley water to
Hawaiian Commercial, in May 1907. It
is hoped and expected that other large
additions will be made by the tunnell
ing development now going on nnd to
lie still further increased.
In the matter of the increase of the
capital stock, a plan of issue entirely
new to the Islands, though one that
is in vosue on the mainland, has been
introduced. The stockholders are to
be given the right to subscribe for the
new stock In proportion to their hold
ings, ut liar. Instead of Issuing the
certificates of stock to the subscribers,

BELLINGHAM, Wash., Dec. 29.
Although the dispatch gives the name of the vessel as the "S. B." Carle

ship S. D. Carleton. This vessel is well known in Honolulu, having former
ly operated to this port in the coal trade both from the Sound district a3
well as Newcastle.
The vessel sailed from San Francisco December 16 for Puget Sound. She
was evidently in ballast and was going for a load of coal. The heavy
weather that has been prevailing off the northern part of the Pacific coast
was probably the cause of her getting ashore.
The vessel Is owned bv the California Shinnine- Comnanv of San Fran-
cisco. W. F. Mighell, the president of the company, arrived in San Fran
cisco last Tuesday by the S. S. Alameda from a visit to the Colonies and
The vessel was built by Carleton, Norwood & Company, at Rockfort,

Alarmed For The Fate
Of Viking Weisbarth
FRIENDS AND BACKERS OF THE BOLD OLD MARINER ARE APPRE
HENSIVE THAT HE AND HIS CREW ARE LOST OR A1AROONED
CARRIED ONLY TWO MONTHS STORES AND IS OUT NINETY
Friends of Captain Weisbarth, the old Hawaiian Viking, are beginning: to
feel apprehensive over the fate of the bold skipper and his little schooner
Lavinia. The vessel has been out over three months and it is feared that
she is either lost on Palmyra Island or else the captain and crew are
marooned without food.
The vessel left Honolulu September 21 for Palmyra Island. Captain
Weisbarth told his backers that there was considerable cash to be made out
of a trip from Palmyra Island to San Francisco with cocoanuts. The vcs.vtl
carried stoPes however for only two months. She has been out 98 days
and unless some stores have been secured from an unexpected quarter the
captain and crew must by this time be tossing up lots as to which will
be the next man to go into the soup tureen. Captain Weisbarth is used to
buffeting with fate, however, and as he can stomach all sorts of disappoint,
ments, which arc certainly the most sickening mental food known,
he could probably stomach a pair of gum boots or any old thing in case of
getting short of grub.
Inquiry was made at the Naval Station recently If a vessel could not be
sent in search of the missing crew. It is thought that the crowd is maroon
ed and with nothing but cocoanuts and waving palm trees in the way of
food. No naval vessel is to be sent however.
It is now declared in view of his probable plight that Weisbarth made a
great mistake in not taking his better half along with him. It was only the
other week that a man was arrested for chewing a piece of her lip. If she
had to undergo such a cannibalistic experience it seems like a waste of good
raw material for her not to have gone along, with her husband when he Is
perhaps starving on some South Sea island. She might help sustain him:
in his time of starvation.
