The, two committees appointed by

quite busy, and their reports are be

There is some diversity of opinion
s to the route which the lao Valley
oad should take from Wailuku to
th entrance to the- valley. A road
from the end of 'Vineyard street.
passing tnauka of the cemetery was
nggested , but the consensus ol
opinion now is that the lao Valley
roed should be extended from Main
street, deflecting from the street at
he west end of town ' and followitiK
the grade of the ditch, whioh . would
practicully make a level road, or one
on an easy, and regular grade from
town to the entrance to the vulley,
and the News heartily endorses this
proposition, believing that a better
road could be cecured than could be
made from the end of Vineyard
From the entrance to the valley, a
new road should be laid out, which
would avoid all crossings and be
above high water mark. This could
be done by turning to the left at the
tirst crossing, and follonitig up on
the Waikapu side of the stream till
the table lands are reached. If how
ever it would be better to go up on
the Waihee side, tban a substantial
bridge should be erected at some
suitable point above the first cros
sing. These are matters however,
wniun can best be aetermiuca by a
competent and impartial survey of
the proposed road.
The question of a road extending
from the end of South Market street
through the sandhills to Kihei is also
being discussed. While it is of prime
importance to have a good road to
Kihei, still the route through the
sandhills seems to be of dubious util
ity. J. he Maaiaea Hay road runs
directly from Wailuku to Kihei, and
by leaving the Kihei road where it
enters the Ida we brush near Camp 7,
swinging round the marsh lands, a
good and almost straight road which
could always be travelled could be
built to Kihei, at but small cost com
paratively. The objections to a road
through the sandhills are prst the
original cost and secondly the trouble
which Would always be experienced
