Hostilities All Over,
That the dispute about certain wa
ter rights on Kniiai between tho Mc
Drjdo and Koloa plantations will bo
luought Into tho courtB of this city
was today definitely stated by W. A.
Kinney, tho attorney of tho Mcllrydo
Sugar Co, Tho Omao stream and its
easterly branch aro tho bones of con
tention. It appears that Koloa has
been building dams on part of tlicso
wator courses, and that tho McDrydo
employees lmvo been trying to tear
them down, largo fotccs of men be
ing employed on both sides. How
ever, tho fight seems to have been
discontinued as far as the main
btream Is concerned, and tho bnttlo
is being carried on nt tho branch
stream at a point tinnuka of that
whero It joins tho main stream. At
prcbcnt there Is apparently an armed
truce, tho Koloa pcoplo being on
guiiril over tho dams which thoy havo
built, fearing a sudden rush by the
Melfrytlo forces, while tho Mcllrydos
is never neglected by the wise. It
costs so littlo'to make the welfare
certain of those dependent on you.
And, when Death, Fire, or Accident
overtakes you, your policy

SOT the hand of Charity! You
have paid for it.
