REPORT Olr COUNTY ENGINEER
Wailuku, Maui, May 31, 1906.
To the Honorable Board of Super
visors, County of Maui, Wai
I have the honor of submitting
my report as County Engineer for
the month of May as follows:
II ANA DISTRICT. Owing to
shortago of available funds, work
in this district has been cut down
to the smallest amount possible
consistent with keeping the main
oacls in passable condilioji.
The largest single item of ex
pense has been the overhauling of
about half a mile of , the road to
Keanao Landing which has. been
in a nearly impassable condition
owing to -several years' washouts.
Nearly all tho work done has
been in the rainy belt botween
liana and tho Makawao boundary
at Oopuola Gulch, which has been
in the nature of repairs. Bridge'
improvements, being very, expen
sive have been suspended,' with the
exception of slight repairs, such as
temporary reinforcements and re.
placing of a few planks.
The Kahawaihapapa bridge will
be improved this coining month by
building1 three concrete piers and
removing the 60-foot tuiss which
is rapidly .becoming dangerous.
An examination has beon made
of the location of the bridge and
connecting load at Lalau, Kcanac,
as per instructions of last session
with results as follows:

clear span and 10 feet clear road
1 lie former structure across this
stream was 50 feet long and was
approached by very poor roads of
about 25 grade.
1 recomend that stops bo taken
to erect this bridgo and build the
connecting road at once.
MAKAWAO DISTRICT. Work
in many places has been prosecuted
vigorously in the district this
month, tire most important and
expensive being for macadamizing
the Paia-Makawao road. .Although
tho crushing plant is not yet fully
equipped, owing to delay in ob
taining material ordered from the
Coast lasj February, considerable
rock has been crushed and a lavcr
of the larger size has been spread
for a distance of 300 foot. (May 2Q)
Tho rock from the crusher is being
screened with a small Hat screen
and the small portion of top dress
ing thus obtained is being stored
to bo spread over the road later.
Grading preparatory to laying
rock has been completed for about
1800 feet, r.nd drains have been put
in 'at the lower end to carry all
surface water under tho road and
thence to the sea.
The indications are that tho rock
on Land at tho present crushing
plant will suflice to macadamize as
far as the lower depot and n lso along
the main road west to tho district
boundary. Another quarry has
been opened up a short distance
below Lindsay's house, whem the
crushing plant will bo located as
soon as the present supply of rock
A sprinkling cart Is sadly need
ed on this work, buVono has been
ordered from tho Coast which is
expected to arrive some time boforo
the end of the month.
In the absence of a steam roller,
it is necessary to wait for the action
of regular travel to compact tho
lower layer assisted by a light
sprinkling of earth, This will be
later on sprinkled and rolled with
a 3-ton horse roller and the tor,
dressing of screenings spread, oiled
and rolled again.
Tho road from Ulupalakua to
the boundary of tho liana district
at Auwahi has beon thoroughly
overhauled by clearing out rocks
cutting lantana and in many places
resurfacing. This had beon abso
lutcly neglected for many years.
A beginning lias been made 111 n
small way on the repair of tho Kuln
Homestead road and tho Kula bell
oad, but much extension improvp
ments are needed there, which can
not bo undertaken for several weeks,
partly due to a shortage of labor,
and partly due to the pross of othor
'The "Pineapple Road," running
from KoUomo down through' Pufjoma
lei and Haiku to the Main road,
whielrhas had little uttention, and
none at all in manyjplaces, forsevornl
years, is being recrowned and drain
ed and ditches cleaned out. A portion
of this road from D. D. Baldwin's
place up to the flat above Puu Ka-
uhikoa, should be relocated to avoid
tho excessive grade, if there is to be
any considerable increase in its use,
as the pineapple industry would seem
to mdicate. Tho extent of this relo
cation to reduce tho principal steep
grades would be from 2 to 21 miles.
Without, any survey whatever a rough
approximation of the cost would
place it at about. $D,0U0. If this work
ever should be undertaken, it is high
ly desirablo that the line should be
staked out at an early date, as the
region is settling up, and rights of
way coula be secured with much less
difficulty now than later after they
have been planted and otherwise
improved. I therefore suggest that
a preliminary survey at least bo made
as soon as practicable to enable tho
making of a more definite report on
On tho Paia-Makawao road, the
portion Irom Fleming's house, a short
distance above the Foreign Church,
has been relocated, joining the main
road again just below the junction of
this road with the Kahului Sprcckels
ville-Makawao road. Final grade
stakes have been set, and work has
begun on grading. The maximum
gradient on this relocation is 5.
Greatly to my regret, it has been
impossible to submit plans and spe
cifications complete for this meeting,
of tho relocation of the main road
from Pauwela eastward toward Ila.
lehaku. The field work has been
completed, the line having been stak
od out, grades sot, cross sections
made, etc., but several days ollice
work will be required before the
work can be advertised. This will bo
completed by tho 8th or 9lh of June,
and tenders can bo advertised for in
tho Maui News issuo of the 9th.
Tho line has been staked out com
plete as far as the branch road run
ning down through Ulumalu from the
main road, just to tho west of Puu
Kuloli, and is 18,200 feet in length.
Until the road be completed to
connection with the branch road
Ulumalu, it will be of little use to
the public, but onco this connection
is made I believe all through travel,
certainly all through vehicle travel
will tako tho new road, oven though
it involves a mile of extra travel up
the branch road to 1 each tho main
road again. Tho maximum grade is
C. but this is employed only in the
worst places, to reduce cost.
A wagon for hauling l-ock, earth,
etc., somewhat lighter than those re
cently purchased, has been bought
and enuinued with a bed suitable fo
tho purpose, and this will bo put Into
commission as soon as tho .new mules
have been thoroughly broken to liar
Work on tho Nailiilihaelo bridgo is
going along quite slowly on account
of difficulty in securing labor, which
seems to bo a general complaint
throughout tho distriot.

SINGER SEWING MACHINES
Cannot be obtained through merchandise dealers. They are delivered
directly from maker to user only through the Company's own em
ployees. There is as great a difference in the cost of making sewing
machines as there is in making watches. A cheap watch will indicate
time with fair accuracy for a short time. Pairly good stitching can be
dme on some of the o!U patterns of cheap sewing machines when they
.ire new, but they always work hard, arc noisy and soon wear out.

It is always ready for every kind of stitching and will do better work
and do it longer than any other because it is of better design and
