Dr. Weddick's new residence on
Main Street is about completed, so
far as the carpenter work is con
cerned, and as soon as the paints
are landed from the Alexander, the
building will bo painted. A very
neat and handsome office has been
. . . L
bui',t near the residence.
Mr. T. B. . Lyon has commenced
the construction of a residence on
Main street, opposite Judge Kepoi
kai's residence. This will be a large
and commodious building, consisting
of four bed rooms, parlor, hallway,
dining room, kitchen and pantries.
The site is a beautiful one, and Mr.
Lyon will have one of the most desira
ble and charmin g residences in Wailu
ku. The entire cost of the building and
improvements, will bo nearly $3000.
A. Enog & Co, have begun work on
Market street. From the Meat Mart
ket, the entire row of shacks has
been torn down to the alley way, a
distance of 88 feet, and a substantial
row of two story building will be
erected at once. 'Mr. David Crowell,
the contractor, is laying the founda
tions, and will start to work fts soon
as the ground is ready. Commencing
at the other end of the butcher shop,
the entire row of shacks toward
Main street for a distance of about
230 feet will be torn down by Enos &
Co.t and new two story buildings
W. T Robinson, who owns the
property adjoining Enos & Co., and
extending to the Young Hee butcher
shop, will at once tear dowu the old
buildings on his lots .and erect new
ones, the lumber for which is already
bought and partly delivered.
These improvements w add much
to the appearance and sanitary con
dition of Market street. Other
improvements ou Market street are
in cointemnlation, and it is believed
that eventually all the disease breed
ing shacks on Market street will give
way to neat, healthful and comnio
dious business houses.
Plan have been submitted to a con
tractor, who is figuring on estimates
for important changes and addition
to IJailey Block. S'nce Mr. Roblusou
has been appointed postmaster, he
is desirous ..of having the tax collec
tor's office adjoining the post office,
Consequently it is probable that a
large room will be erected in the
rear of the post office and the News
office. This room will be 14x32 feet,
and wiil probably be occupied by the
Maui News as a composing and job
office. The prchent sanctum of the
News will bo turned over 1o the tax
collector, and the present work
room of the News will be converted
into the sanctum, with glass doors
and transom in front, to correspond
with tbe adjoining fronts.

An Interesting Reception.
At 10 o'clock on Wednesday morn
ing, a large gathering of the political
and personal friends of the Hon.
A. N. Kepoikai met at the Windsor
Hotel, Wailuku, and accorded him
a hearty welcome home from his trip

Water Works Items.
Mr. V7. E. Bal of Wailuku has been
appointed Superintendent of the Wai
luku & Kahului water works, and
and his appointment gives universal
satisfaction. Mr. Bal is an Hawaiian,
born and raised in Wailuku, and is a
skilled mechanic. He is also a man of
excellent habits and of high moral
character, and well deserves the
honor conferred on him.
Dr. Pratt of Honolulu, connected
with thp board, of public works, came
over on Wednesday a assist Mr. Bal
in regulating the initial affairs of the
w.ater works, and it will prove quite
a task for buth gentlemen to get
things ino, running order.
The ne.w. reservoir is about com
pleted, and is a substantial job, re
flecting much credit on Supt. Taylor
and his assistants, The reservoir is
circular, 80 feet In dianipter and 12
jfeet deep. The sides and bottom are
Iir.ed with a wall and bed of concrete
a foot thick, which is coated with
water proof plaster. The only dan
ger is that this plastor may shell off
n a ttle while, but so far as can be
judged from a casual inspection, it is
being, substantially put on. The wa
ter is introduced into the reservoir
through a stand pipe 12 feet high.
This pipe Is placed in the center of
the rpjiervoir and stands perpend!
cuiar-, pemg scitwy set m tno con
crete. The Uwer end is connected
with the main pipe, and when the
water is turned pn, it comes up from
below and overflows the (op of $he. pipe
which is slightly abovp thp tup of the
water level when thp reservoir is full
A discharge pipe will be laid near
the top of the reservoir, which will
draw off the surplus water and feed
it into the plantation ditch. At the
I xj. f it
oonom ot me reservoir is a pipe
which connects with the city water
mains, so that no floating matter
can find its way into the city
mains, but is carried off through the
surface drain into the waste ditch
The reservoir is to bp covered with
a roof which will shut off the light
from the water, thus preventing the
growth of scum on the water.
At the bottom of the reservoir
neap the center, the whole floor of
which slopes to the eppter, is an
other drain pipe whioh will be used
to draw off all the water whenever it
is desirable to clean the reservoir.
Dr, Pratt states that from observa
tion oi tiio covered reservoir on
Punchbowl, Honolulu, it can be ftat
ed positively that if a reservoir be
so covered as to bo kept dark, there
ill be no growth of vegetable lite in
the nature of green scum or other
matter of an unhealthful nature. A
gable door for an entrance to the re
servoir will be built, a wire screen
will take tne place of walls, and in
the center of the roof will bo placed
a ventilator, so as to give plenty of
free circulation of air. As the water
will be additionally aerated by flow
ing up and discharging through the
stand pipo in the open air, it will bu
as pure and healthy in the reservoir
as it is at tne head oi tne water sys
tem in Iao Valley.
The surface surrounding the re
servoir is being graded off so as t
slope from the reservoir, thus druininj
off the surface water which otherwise
would run into it. A carriage drive
will be built around the reservoir
and in tune trees and grass will be
planted on the surplus ground; which
if tei raced, will make a charming
little park, from which au enchuntiug
view of the Island and sea can be

Hilo is equal to Honolulu in every
way. Tht steamer comes right up

roads are even pttcr than some of
the Honolulu roads, and wuy ahead

heads together and have fixed up
Hiip in great style. One Ihing they
lost there and that is the rains.
You go there witli clean shoes and
you come away with clean shoes.
The business houses arp brick
buildings and not woodeu shanties,
like Wailuku. Their fish market and
general market is in Hie back part
of the town, and Is three times as
large as the fish market in Wailuku.
The side walks arc stone and
boards. You can hardly ee a steel
tire hack, all are rubber tires with
the exception of its busses that go
to Waiakca and back every 15 min
utes. Others go to Olaa every
morning and back in the afternoon.
and others go to Peptekeo and
back every day.
