TRIED TO CUT
MOTION TO REDUCE THE DIVI
DENDS BY THIRD TO CREATE
RESERVE FUND FAILED.
There was a great deal of talk on
the street this morning over the .it
tempt that was made at the annual
meeting of the stockholders of Ewa
Plantation to reduce the dividends. A
motion was offered at the meeting to
reduce the rate of dividends from 1 per
cent a month now, to 8 per cent an
nually, for the purpose of creating a
reserve fund. This motion failed to re
ceive a second, however, so the pres
ent rate of 1 per cent a month will
continue. It was thought by some of
the stockholders that a reserve fund
should be secured, but the majority of
those at the meeting apparently did
not approve of such measure and
wanted to see the dividends continue.
A motion was offered to Increase the
dividends to 1 per cent a month, but
attention was called to the fact that
the Increase of dividends was a matter
for the directors to pass upon, so the
motion was not considered further.

"Wahlawa Dam. The cost of .the

miles of railroad track built to the
quarry, crushed rock prepared and
cement, lumber ami other materials

If there are no unforeseen difficulties,
the dam should be finished by July 1st.
"The successful completion of this

difficulties that has. been met In 'the

will be nbout 11,000 acres of land that

to be found In some of the fields, , The
cane for the crop of 1905, now being
harvested, has not been as seriously
affected as the crops of 1903 and. 1004.
During the year 1901, 1,182,492 beetles
were collected by children nnd des

on for two years and has reduced the
loss from borers.
"The leaf-hopper Is present In all of

collected In fields where they are most
numerous, and have been distributed

bill inasmuch as there are several oth

committee wished to compare them.
Then Aylett blew up. There was no
other bill on the subject nt present
before the House, lie said and the com

back. He moved that the commit
