DEATH OF JUNIUS KAAE.
A Prominent Resident of Maui Dies in Honolulu Was a
Member of King Kalakaua's Privy Council The
Maui was visited by heavy rains
last Friday and Saturday that sot
the streams running at a Hood pace.
During Friday night ninny of the
hackmen went to McGregor's to
mcot the Kinnu and whilo waiting.
for the steamer the road was wash
ed out in places so that they 'were
unable to return to town. This
fate was shared by those ..who' ex
pected to return to 'town by the
Mauna'Loa. Instead of reaching
town about ten o'clock as is usual
they did not arrive in Wailuku
until nbout ten o'clock the follow
ing day, and when the passengers
did reach town they were about the
wettest lot of passengm-s ever ,sccn
The damage to tho road between.
town and thp landing was not se
rious and may be Tepaired at -little
expense. The brido 'between Olo
wnlu and the mountain on the
Lahaina-Wailuku road wns washed
out and vihicles were compelled to
follow the beach and then drii-eCttml,be,11. fath of W
through tho pond near Oldwalu.
There were several small washouts
on tho pali road but of minor im
portance. One small brido near
Puuhele was washed out, but was
temporary repaired by Road Su
pervisor Sommerfeld and County
Engineer Howell. The Hood from
the Iao Valley was higher than
has been seen in town for years and
as the water rose it overflowed the
batiks and ran across the" road on
the Waihce side of the bride. Many
people turned out in tho night and
dug down an embarkment and
turned tho water back into tho
stream just above the bride.
Two small cement piers just be
low the bridge that supported the
pipe that carries the water for the
mill were washed down and the
pipe broken. As tho pipe was not
a large one tho damage was slight.
Some damage was done to the
Iao Valley road, but in general
there was not as much damage
done as one would naturally expect
from the unusually heavy rains
that pervailed at the time.
