A Model Camp.
When Camp Wood was abandoned
as a quarantine fetation, the build
ings were purchased by the H. C. &
S. Co., for the use of the laborers of
the Kahului Railroad Company, and
more than one hundred of them are
omiciled there now.
At the invitation, and in company
with Superintendent Filler, the
News man visited the camp on Wed-
esday afternoon, to observe its
sanitary conditions. The population
of the Camp consists of Hawaiians,
Chinese and Japanese, some of whom
vre single men and some who have
families. The grounds are covered
with a growth of soft, velvety grass,
and are kept absolutely free from
all rubbish and garbage which is
gathered every morning and carried
early half a mile from the camp.
Lime is freely used, aud the houses
and grounds are perfectly free from
11 disagreeable odors.
When the buildings were first
turned over to Supt. Filler, he re
moved the rough board floors, and
fitted every building in the camp
with neat, tongued and Grooved
floors. Tho buildings are kept neatly
whitewashed, inside and out, and tho
occupants are required to keep the
floors "of their rooms scrupulously
clean. Each family has one or more
ooms of its own, and the single men
are assigned to rooms in croups of
not more than tivc to ouc largo room.
No cooking is allowed in the living
rooms, kitchens having been
build near the living rooms,
for culinary purposes. Supt.
Filler states that at first he had
some difficulty in making the occu
pants keep their premises clean and
finally he adopted the plan, after in
effectual warnings, of simply taking
the offending members, with their
household goods and putting them
out into the road without further
warning. Two or three Repetitions
of this was sufficient, and as a result,
ivery room m the camp is kept as
neat and clean as a parlor.
A number of the rooms of the sin
le men were inspected, and the
most careful housewife could have
found nothing in their condition to
complain of. Then the families of
the married men were visited in their
homes, and everything was as spick
and span as a new pin. The women
seemed proud of the neat appear
ance of their rooms, as they well

their physical condition aud mental
and moral characters seem to have
undergone a change so that they
absolutely look different and more
manly. It would be a good idea for
some of the plantation managers on
Maui to visit the camp and imitate
some of the reforms there initiated.
Another thing for which Mr. Filler
deserves much credit is the number
of trees which ho has set out in the
camp. In a few years beautiful rows
of trees will adorn every avenue in
the camp. This improvement in the
condition of the laborers was not mi
dertaken as a philanthropic, but
rather as a utilitarian' measure, aud
the company is already reaping the
fruits of its work, in securing a well
fed, well housed, healthy and content

The corrugated iron warehouse,
ouilt by Supt. Filler, on the site of
ho old Paia depot, is a pretentious
looking building, but for the present
will be used as a warehouse only,

separate building under charge of
Mr. A. K. McLane.
It would be greatly to the con
venience of the travelling public, if
there were three instead of two
round trips per clay from Paia to
Kahului. If the schedule could bo so
arranged that one train could reach
Paia at, say 11:45, leaving for Kahu
lui and Wailuku at 12 m., it would
be a great accommodation to the
Wailuku Water Supply.
Within. a few days after the pipes
of the Wailuku water system were
washed out, Supt. Hal had made a
temporary connection at the first
crossing, which supplied Wailuku and
Kahului with an abundant supply of
On Wednesday, Superintendent
Rowell of Honolulu arrived in town
and spent the day in Iao valley. On
his recommendation, Supt. Bal with a
force of men at once proceeded to
make a permanent connection at the
first crossing. This will remain a
pei'manent point of diversion, but as
soon as funds are in hand, the pipe
line will again be completed to the
third crossing, tapping the stream
purchased by the government. "When
this is done water will be taken from
this source exclusively, except when
the pipe line is again damaged by
high water, in which case water can
at once be taken from the point of
diversion at tho first crossing.
Mr. Rowell states that ho finds
that about 500 feet of pipe, in addi
tion to what is now on hand, will be
needed to repair the pipo destroyed
by the flood.
Mr. Rowell states that there are
no funds now available to repair the
damage done above the first cross
