AN ARTESIAN WATER SUPPLY First Well Is a Success Not Deep. A Million Gallons a Day. More Wells. Jas. S. (Kimo) McCandless, the pres ent field man of the well boring firm of McCandless Brothers, says he can not presume or undertake to make any statements for the Molokai Ranch Company as to its plantation pros pects or plans. Mr. McCandless, who is over from Kaunakakai, to return to day, tells willingly enough something of his work there three-quarters of a mile from the beach. From what Mr. McCandless says it is more than rea sonable to believe that the Molokai Ranch Company, on the Island giving the corporation its name, is to have one of the largest sugar enterprises of the country. Water is available. That was the only question. The prob lem was surprisingly easy of solution. It took but a fortnight of time and what may be called only a small amount of money to settle definitely and most satisfactorily what has been guessed at for from thirty of forty years. A plantation on Molokai is practicable and is being established. ' The experimental well that has in- I sured cane fields and a sugar mill for Molokai is an insignificant affair when compared to the plantation wells on Oahu. It is only seventy-five feet deep and is referred to by the contractors as a "nost-hole." But the reservoir at the bottom of the "post-hole" has sustained a drain of one million gal lons of water a day without showing or exhibiting any diminution of sup ply. The supply was brought through a six-inch pipe with a centrifugal pump. The fluid is all right for do mestic use. J. S. McCandless returns to Kaunakakai today by the Mauna Loa, of the Inter-Island steamer line. A good many more wells are to be bored. Plans for pumping stations have been under way for some time. These will of course now be completed at once, and orders will be placed for pumps and engines as well as an en tire mill plant. So swiftly have events moved with the Molokai Ranch Company that . there is already growing cane on me estate. Two acres have been planted and the green spears came above the ground in nine days. Ploughing is un der way. There was shipped to the new plantation from here yesterday 300 bags of seed cane. More will fol low. With this comnanv there is am ple capital and aggressive management and the business will be pushed from the very first. The property went to a syndicate with General Hartwell and Judge Carter at the head locally. For many years the land has produced only beef. There are large herds of cat tle and flocks of sheep and bands of horses UDon it. The stock will be got ten rid of gradually and the cane area, to be large from the first, will be ex tended as time ffoes on. The trade between Molokai and Oahu will become a considerable business factor. Air. Jas. McCandless, who has been in the well making business all over the group, says the Molokai Ranch Company soil is sure to be quite pro ductive. In sinking the first well there was found about twenty feet of soil. There is no coral at all at the distance from shore of the first well. After tiiP twpntv feet the drill passed through hard and soft volcanic forma- ion.

Tne Hawaiian hotel people have se cured a lease of the Snovs' Cottage pre mises from T. K. James. Others were after the place, but Mr. James and Colonel Macfarlane came to terms yes terday morning and for a long period the rebuilt Snow Cottage and the pret ty new cottages on the premises will be a nart of the hotel. The Snow place is now decidedly attractive. The new cottages are beautiful and the original big house is a handsome structure. Mr. James has done all this work during the past four months. The hotel man agement has shown both faith and en terprise in securing the Snow premises. It will now be almost impossible for the hotel to become over crowded and the accommodations have been decid edly improved. Police Court. In the Police Court yesterday morn ing Kapukana was sentenced to two weeks' imprisonment at hard labor on the charge of vagrancy. The cases of Charles Kaanoi for as sault and battery on Sam Leslie and Jim Mahoe for assault and battery on a police officer, were both nolle pross'd. IG STEEL BRIDGE Two Spans 100 Feet Each Over Waimea Gulch. What Has Been Done In Repairing: Flood Damace-Excellent Time Made. The end of repairing bridge damage inflicted on Oahu by the big flood is in sight if there is reckoning without Waimea gulch. Mr. Rowell, superin tendent of Public Works, has employ ed very large forces of mechanics and laborers and has shipped material in quantity and with dispatch. Waimea bridge was carried out to sea. Some of it landed on Kauai beach. The wooden structure swept away will be replaced by steel. Plans have been made for a bridge of two spans of 100 feet each. Advertisement will soon be made for tenders. The whole will require several months, as the steel must come from abroad. Meantime temporary provision will be made for traffic between Kahuku and Waialua. Perhaps the railway bridge will be finished before the wagon bridge. Mr. Rowell said yesterday tha,t the new bridge would be farther inland than the. old one and that the spans being 100 feet should be a certain protec tion against flood damage in the fut ure. Two bridges destroyed at Waialua have been replaced. One was a single 75-foot span and the other had two spans of CO feet each. Borne of the old material was brought back from the reef beyond the river mouth and used. There yet remains to be built at Waia lua one bridge of two spans of 75 feet each. Work has been commenced. Piles are being driven. The pile driv er, which had been in use at Hilo wharf, is doing, service at Waialua. Besides the driving of piles there will be considerable masonry. Nearly all the bridge work made ne cessary by the rush of waters in Koo lau has been finished. There is yet to be done a big bridge of 2G0 feet at Punaluu and a small one of 40 feet. Stone work is underway and piles are being driven at Punaluu. Large forces are employed and every effort is being made to expedite matters. Material i3 shipped around by steam ers and landed close to the work. The only other piece of work to be looked after yet in Koolau is a bridge of a single span of CO feet at Laiewai. This will be completed in short order after the preliminary work. - In a couple of months at most the only missing feature of the "round the Island wagon road will be at Wai mea, where the big steel bridge is to go in. Mr. Rowell says that at two points there is yet considerable road work to be looked after. This includes the road between Waialua and Wai mea and a long approach to one of the Waialua bridges. The country road boards and all the men who have been engaged in repairing the flood damage have worked with a will and the town dealers and the transportation com panies have done their best in filling orders for material.
