What The Kona Did.
At the time of going to press,
last Saturday morning, very little
was known of tho actual damage
done by the Kona storm, and it was
Tuesday before full reports reached
A great deal of damage was done
in Iao Valley, principally on Thurs
day night and Friday morning. The
Hood of water which came down
began its work of destruction at the
head of the pipe system of the water
works. Last week's News reports
as to the destruction are confirmed,
but the damage was greater than
was then stated. From the first
crossing up nea ly to the second,
the river overflowed its bed and
changed its channel, flowing directly
down the pipe line. The pipe was
uncovefed, and as it was in the bed
the new stream, huge boulders
.ere camel clown, crushing the
ipe into fragments. The road was
also washed out, so that it is now
ifficult to go up 'the valley on horse
back, even. Above the second cross
ing, the pipe was also washed out
and crushed by boulders. Practically,
the pipe system above the first
rossing is a total wreck, beyond all
lope of repair.
Below the first crossing, and at
the point where Iao Valley begins to
widen out, the htige volume of water
overflowed the banks of the stream
and cut numberless new channels,
washing out the taro patches, rice
fields and cottages that were in its
path. At a point some distance
above the tunnel being run by Mr.
Waldeyer, for the Wailuku Sugai Co.,
the whole river left its old bed at a
bend in the stream, on the Wailiee
ide, and cut a new bed through the
cane and taro patches, forming quite
an island. A dam is being put across
the new stream at its point of diver
tion, with the view of forcing it back
into the old channel. Fortunately,
but little damage was done to the
tunnel the new stream having paral
leled it down to the cut, where the
new stream entered the cut washing
out the flumes and Anally filling it
up with gravel.
Just above the bridge across the
iver on Market street, the water
sought a new channel on tho V aihee
ide, ruunir.g under the fish market
and adjacent buildings and doing
some injury to the road. Another
heavy storm, following on the heels
of the present one would permanently
change the course of the stream,
and leave the present bridge high
The storm raged with gvetit severi
ty at Lahaina. The Bangor, the
vessel reported by the mail carrier
last week as being in great danger,
drifted to within 2.") feet of the reef.
She had out one anchor and two
bowlines made fast to the buoy, and
was barely able to hold.
Between 73 and 100 grown trees
were blown down in the town, fortu
nately doing no further damage. A
heavy wash came down from the
hills, destroying some cane on the
Pioneer Plantation. The worst dam
age done was the filling up the pit
of the Lahaina pump, a new Worth
imrton. A part of the rock wall
around tho pit was toppled over
falling on the pump and doing it
considerable injury. The mud and
rocks were dug out, and the injured
portious of the machinery were taken
out and . shipped to Honolulu for
Tho Olowalu plantation suffered
severely from the wash fjom the hills
several tracts of young cane beitog
completely buried out of sight.
Mr. F. Kohler, bookkeeper at the
Pioneer Plantation, Lahaina,-aceorii-
panied by Captain Saxe, of the
Euterpe, came over from Lahaina
toWailuku last Monday, on horseback,
being five hours on the road. They
report that from Lahaina to Olowalu,
there is but little damage done to
the road. From Olowalu to the
foot of the pali however, they report
the road to bo in a very damaged
condition. In a number of places
for fifty yards it is full of big boulders
la other places, huge washout are
t ut through the toad
'Across the.pa'i lnueh damage has
been done. Ju many places, vast
heaps pf, mud have been pilpd up in
the road. A number of the rock
walk on ithe lower side of he road
have brokeji loose, opening lateral
irapt several inches wide for their
entire leugUi. the crevices being too
deep to see the bottom of them
From ; Maalaea Bay to. Wailuku
There are-a'Junjaberfpf denaahouts
across the road. Mr. Kohler state
that it" will take from six weeks to
two months to repair tho road, and
that it will cost several thousand
From Thursday of last week until
Tuesday of this week, the road from
Makawao to Kahului was impassible,
on account of the mud deposits in
the low places. Wailuku, which gets
its milk supply from Makawao, had
to take its coffee and tea "straight"
from last Thursday till Tuesday of
The destruction of cano and cane
lands on the plantations is not nearly
so much as at first thought. On
many of the plantations, some of the
cane was overflowed and covered
with debris, and some of the ripe
cane was broken off, but the loss In
this direction will not make any
perceptible reduction in dividends.
Manager Lowrio of the Hawaiian
Comercial reports that the loss of
cane on that plantation is com
paratively slight. The principal dam
age was done to the old ditch which
was filled with gravel by the wash
from above. The new ditch was but
little injured, only two flumes having
Olowalu suffered more than any of
the other plantations in the relative
amount of cane actually destroyed.
The Kihei cane was not injured at
all, but was immensely benefited by
the rain. Paia plantation and those
lying east of it, around to Kipahulu
were not injured, as they were on
the lee side of Haleakala from the
brunt of the storm.
Outside of Iao Valley, but little
harm was done to tho Wailuku Plan
tation cane, except at Waikapu.
Air immense amount of flume has
been washed away however, and will
have to be replaced before the next
sugar making season begins.
A Narrow Escape.
Mr. Carl Waldeyer, superinten
dent of construction of the tunnel
in Iao Valley, had a close call. He
was stopping at the old Lamb resi
dence, in the Iao Valley. This resi
dence is below the lower end of the
tunnel, and directly in the path of
the new stream. About two o'clock
on Friday morning, the water began
to rise rapidly and soon filled the lower
part of the building. He attempted
to escape from the rear of the build
ing, but the water drove him back.
He immediately telephoned to friends
in u ailuku to come to his rescue,
A party headed by Dr. Boots and
Mr. Field was at once organized, and
proceeded to his relief. In the mean
time, the water has risen so much
that debris and logs were washing
in at the lower windows, and threat
ening "to demolish the house. Mr.
Waldeyer started down stream along
some high ground, catching at the
trees to prevent being carried too
fast. Finally he reached a point
opposite where several natives stood
on the opposite bank of the stream
with a lantern. They waded partly
across the raging torrent, and then
formed a chain of their hands, ena
bling one of them to roach out near
the middle of the stream. Mr.
Waldeyer approached as near as
possible, and making as spring,
succeeded in grasping the outstretch
ed hand of the native, and was safely
hauled across to shallow water. He
waded out and started for Wailuku,
meeting his anxious friends half w
The storm has done much damage
to tho Kula corn crop. A mouth
ago the prospects were that an
enormous crop of corn would be
raised and that corn would be cheap
Some damage was done to the crops
by rains early in October, but much
was still left. Tho Kona however
has almost destroyed the Kula corn
crop. Corn on the lower lands was
already ripe, and on the higher land;
was ripening. Much of tho corn was
washed completely out of the ground
and carried away by the rush
water. In other places it was simply
prostrated and covered with mud
A large number of eucalyptus
trees were blbwn down in Makawao,
The potato crop is also damaged by
the stoim. The blight, which
pronounced by some observent resi
dents of Makawao as simply a milde
caused by too much moisture, still
continues its ravages. Makawao
also afflicted with another pest.-little
red ants. The ground is simp!
honeycombed by them. Mr. E. H
Bailey of Makawao states that he
notieedi'that one of hi young peach
trees had fallen, and upon examina
tion he discovered that the reason
was that the ants hadisfc honcycombe
the grou,Fd around it that tho root
had no support.
Tho people of tho United States
generally, and of the Territory of
Hawaii particularly, have reason to
congratulate themselves on tho result
of the election. The doubtful states,
New York, Indiana, New Jersey,
Maryland and even Nebraska nil
went republican, giving McKinlcy
tho largest plurality ever received
by any presidential candidate. Bry-
anism.-but not democracy,-lias re
ceived its death blow.
Ex-queen Liliuokalani will novf
reap what she has sown. Had Bryan
elected, she might possibly have
been profited there by, but now she litis
alienated herself from the republi
cans who arc the only ones who can
help her. She has also alienated
herself from a large and respectable
clement of the democracy, who will
not forget her treachery to her own
louse. A sober second thought will
convince anyone the Bob W Hcox
could not have made the run he did
the face of the opposition of the
ex-queen, whic h practically demon-
trates the fact, in addition to his
open avowal, that it was Liliuokalani
who really welded the independents
nto the compact and powerful body
which controlled the election.
Congress is largely republican in
both branches, and there will be no
hange in the domestic or foreign
policy of the administration.
The United States will now enter
on a career of prosprrit3f which will
dim all her ancient glories. The
Hawaiian Islands will share bounte
ously in this prosperity. Even the
democrats, who were defeated, would.
f the veil were lifted so that they
could see the good times coming',
agree that the defeat itself means a
glorious victory for our common
Epitor "Maui News":
In relation to a recent editorial in
one or the columns ot your paper
regarding a brass band that Wai
luku should have, I beg to say that
although it is hardly possible for
Wailuku to have one, yet a good
orchestra can be organized. A com
bination of wind and stringed instru
ments would be just what our progres
sive town should have, and if the
residents or Wailuku would rai;e
subscriptions to purchase the instru
ments, I would be willing to under
take the difficult task, of organizing
the club, and a Sunday Concert will
be something which should be uppreci
ated by all.
Thanking you for the space, '.
