At last the armored cruiser squadron has been heard from by local wireless. From how far It is Impossible to say, for the sparks were so faint they could but with difficulty be heard by the great receiver at Kahuku. Wireless Expert Arthur A. Isbell last night at twenty minutes before mid night heard the U. S. S. cruiser West Virginia calling the U. S. S. Maryland and saying: "If you have any messages for us give us a few Vs (signals) That was all. From eight o'clock last evening Is bell listened for whatever the .air might have of intelligence to precipi tate, and he had almost given up any idea of hearing from the fleet, in fact ho was not altogether sure of being able to hear the fleer from the direc tion In whljh" tfie warships are, .on ac count of the intervening mountains or this Island, when, suddenly, he was ail alert. A message was coming. A spark out of the mysterious distance hit the receiver and she talked. Yes, it was unmistakably the slgn-Ing-off of the flagship of the Pacific fleet that Isbell heard. He heard- the operator of the flagship sparking out the message "If you haveany mes sages for us give us a few V" and then sign-off with the West Virginia's sign. He had already caught the West Virginia's call, the call for the Mary land, and then there was no doubt Kahuku can now send, though that wireless station has not been geared to its highest power. It is for the present not quite half-power.

She wa3 talking to a sister ship and no one was supposed to be listening. The signals were faint. This falnt ness may have 'been due to one of several causes, or to all, perhaps they were faint on account of the inter vening mountains, or becauso the warships had reduced their sparks for only Inter-shlp communication, or be cause of great distance. The original schedule called for the arrival of the fleet here on Wednes day, October 7, and it was supposed, to accomplish such an arrival, that It would leave, as the schedule had It, on, Monday, September- 28. The -fleet was, therefore, live days late In leav ing, Pago Pago and, allowing five days overdue from original schedule, it should be here soon after noon on Monday next." When tne fleet was heard last night by Wireless Expert 'isbell, supposing it is making ordinary cruising time to this port-and coming -direct, it was about twelve hundred miles from this port It Is now probable that the wireless stations here, Kahuku or Barber's Point, will hear nightly from Admiral Swinburne's command up to Its ar rival In the harbor.

RAILROAD AFTER Just when he Is In the business plirt of his campaign for tho position of Delegate to Congress, seems to bo a rather unpleasant time to bo sued, but Democratic Candidate L. L. McCand less is having plenty of trouble in this line. Only a few days ago he was sued as tho attorney, agent and factor for W. C. Achl, of the "Laborrula" party, and now tho Oahu. Railroad, probably not thinking that MoCandless has his hands full of business, is haling him before the courts. Tho railroad company wishes to ob tain a perpetual injunction against McCandless and James Armstrong, who have it la v alleged built a dam along XfChua avenue, which banks up tho water so that it keeps the road bed over which the trains are run, continually wet and makes It danger ous for the passengers riding In trains. It Jsstated that the dam has been built In order to raise, tho level of the water that, it may. rjin.hrougb,, a. culvert, to their property,. HOLES, 1 Ookala plantation will not be liqui dated but will be reorganized and kept on though Manager W. G. Walker, who has been with the concern for a great, many years, will probably leave that position. The work of quietly ab sorbing tne stock of ,Ooknl;i has been going onvfor some time, In the hands of the Waterhouse Trust Company who are representing a hui whose names cannot be learned. This morning a block of 1070 shares of Ookala was bought for the hul by William William son, broker for the Waterhouse Com pany. It Is understood that this prac tically gives the control of tho planta tion stock Into the l&mls of the re organization. Ookala plantation is one of the old est plantations on the islands, but has never been successful, until the past two years. Finding that things were going from bad to worse it wns decided to wind up the affairs ol the company and that liquidation should take place In 1910. When the reports of the crop for the season Just past came, how ever, it was found that It had overrun the estimates which had been made to such an extent that It was possible to Lpaycoflt-tho- entire bofaS Issue of the plantation this year, which has alreayd been done. It had been estimated at the time that the- liquidation was decided on that the stock would pay, when the af fnirs had been all closed up, a little over $13 'per share. When It was found that tho crop for the year was so much better than the expectations, new estimates were made, and conser vative Judges stated that the stock would be able to pay at least $17 per share. Now tho new management will take hold and keep tho plantation going, with good prospects ahead. The Wa terhouse Trust Company has been pay ing ?12 per share for the stock, which has gone up In tho last six months quite rapidly, but has averaged less than this prlcp. THE COURTLAND.
