The report of the company for the
past year was also made public. Man
ager Wni. Stoddart says:
Crop 1910: This crop fell short of
the estimate ami 'turned out 10,434. FiG
Crop 1911: This crop, now being
harvested, which at the sfart expe
rienced several months of dry wea
ther, had full and regular irrigations
during the following twelve months.
The yields of cane from tho fields
already harvested have so far come
up to my expectations, and this crop
bids fair to yield in the neighborhood
of 14.000 tons. '
Crop 1912:' This crop consists of
1,597.88 acres of plant cane, 9fi7.01
ncres of long ratoons, and 110.30 acres
of short ratoons, or a total of 2,675.19
acres. The planting. of this crop com
menced in February with top seed, and
ended August 31st, 1910. The ra
t'Oohs ere also all hilled up in good
season, so that with favorable wea
ther conditions it ought to give a good,
return. ' '. '
- Stoddart's report takes up in detail
the progress of the company toward
securing permailent water supply, In
cluding the installation of an eight
niillion gallon pump, the total expen
diture for the year for water develop
ment being $50,130.93. The new Wal
niha pow,er house has been completed
at a cost of $.r,9,821.89.
Three years experience of the Ka-
mooloa Ditch, Which brings storm
water from the mountains back of
Lihne, has emphasized the need of
further storage capacity, for the Ko
loa end of the plantation. 1
The usefulness of this ditch has been
very much handicapped by the inade
quate reservoir capacity for storing
the water, and to meet this need, four
new reservoirs have been const ructoa
In the Aepo -Valley, with a combined
storage capacity of 250 million gal
Advantage la taken of one of these

The preliminary work in connection

that the building of the dam and all
other necessary work in connection
with it ready to store water will be
completed early this summer. The
amount spent up to Dec. 31st, 1910,

Thcro was a time when the now old
and somewhat decrepit United States
army transport Crook would have
sailed in circles around the present
record made by that vessel in her
trij) down from San Francisco. When
the 'Crook plied the- seas' years be
fore the first outbreak of the Spanish,
American war and was then known
as the steamship Romania and proud
ly flew the British -colors from her
masthead, she would have done much
better than an eight and a half day
trip from San Francisco to Honolulu,

It was in 1882 that the vessel that
has now settled down to the routine
of a common ordinary troopship, leit
the ways at Dumbarton, Scotland and
made her maiden plunge in the briny
as a smart British freighter.
The yellow flag of quarantine was
prominently displayed from the Crook
upon her arrival at the port last even
ing. Among the yonthfu! progeny of
tho officers of the famous Second In
fantry, there broke out an incipient
epidemic of measles. The malady
spread until by the time that the slow
old troopship showed dp off Diamond

It was a long trip as well as a
monotonous one for the 821 officers
and men on board the vessel.
. The enlisted men aboard are divid
ed as follows; Second Infantry," 488
men; for the Held artillery there are
thirteen recruits; for the coast artll-rei-y,
thirty-five recruits; for the
Fifth Cavalry,' 141 recruits; for the
Twentieth Infantry, twenty-two re
cruits. The Crook hiis gone to the railway
wharf where some hundred thousand
feet of lumber and a quantity of camp
eqlitppflge will be discharged to wait
ing railway' cars' which will convey
the same to the army posts how in

laden with refrigerated cargo and had
a large shipment of cement. - ,
The well known Second Infantry
band attempted to add to the merri
ment by an impromptu program of
melodies as the transport was being
shifted to her berth. Measles was the
cause ot a partial quarantine being
observed for a time last evening. The
Crook is to remain at the port but a
few days before being returned to the
coast. The prediction i8 made that
the old-timer will then go out of com
