SITES VOU GliliAT FORTIFICA
TIONS TO lili DECIDED UP
ON WITHIN A FF.VV DAYS.
Within a week the locations of
the first two big batteries in the
great system of fortifications con
templated for the protection of tho
Territory, will have been made.
One of these, as lins been staled,
will be at Pearl IJ arbor,- and the
other on Diamond lleid.
Lt-Col. S. V. Roessier, of the U.
S. Army Engineer Corps, who ar
rived litre from the Coast on tho
Korea, is here for the express pur
pole of consulting with Capt. C.
V. Otwell with reference to the
matter of fortifications, and before
he leaves on the Mongolia next
Tuesday, the sites of tho two first
works will have been determined.
This of course is but the first
stop in the big project, and it will
lie. months possibly upwards of a
year before tho actual construc
tion work will begin. Tho loca
tions as determined by Col.
Roessier and Capt. Otwell will first
have to be submitted to tho War
Department at Washington and
approved; after which the prepara
tion of tho plans and specifications
will require some time, and then
the slow work of getting machinery,
cement in Vast quantities, and
other material, most of which will
mobablv havo to como from the
Atlantic coast, will commence.
But tho important point is that
tho work of fortifying Hawaii has
actually begun, and however slow
will progress steadily until the
completion of fortification works
which at the present time contcm
plates the expenditure of $1,500,
000. Appropriations mado by the
last Congress are only to the
amount of $010,000, but this will
be sullicicnt to practically com
plete the Pearl Harbor and Dia
mond Head projects, which will be
Ihc chief protection for Honolulu.
Of tho appropriation at present
available, $150,000 is for the pur
chase of tho sites for tho works

As soon as the locations have
been approved, steps will at once
be taken to secure the property and
prove, the titles, and at tho same
limp plans will be prepared for tho
work by Captain Otwell, who will
have direct charge of the construc
tion. As this ciass of work 13 not
done by contract, it will mean that
the entire responsibility for the
planning and executing of the work
will rest on this ollioor's shoulders.
The materials for the work will be
of tho very highest quality, es
pecially thovcement, of which im
mense quantities will be used. All
this material, as well as the ma
chinery needed must bo purchased
and brought here by the Govern
ment, through "the ollicor in charge.
Before the appropriations for the
first fortifications are expended it
is expected that more money will
bo forthcoming for other work of
si miliar character, for the Terri
tory, and the work will bo able
to proceed without break.
With the construction of tho
lighthouse at Makapuu Point, the
one on Molokai, and other lesser
lights planned, and harbor worl
which will be in progress within
the next year, the local U. S. En
ginecr department will be exceed
incly busy, and tho amount of
money to bo expended by tho Fed
eral Government will be of nnicl
importance to Honolulu.

Otwell is looking over tho ground
for tho new fortifications, is station

has charge of Government river

KAMULUIS H WAIKAPU8 ii.
Such was the result of last Sun
day's game of baseball between
the Kahuluis and Waikapus at
Well's Park. Quito a number of
people were present but as a letter
addressed to the association asking
that all noise be stopped, it was a
very quiet audience. Some one in
the audience several times asked
whether it was a game of the great
American ganie they were attend
ing or a funeral.
Tho f,ame in itself, although
very much one sided, was a pretty
fast one. Tho Kahuluis were in
excellent from and showed that
they have, had some practice since
they were defeated by tho Stars.
Their batting was certainly a
decided improvement and when
they again meet the Stars it will
In the eight inning pitcher Hat-
tie of the Kahuluis hurt himself
while running to first. After re
covering he went into tho box and
tried to pitch hut as every throw
would affect his injured leg ho was
substituted by Hampton. The
Waikapus immediately protested,
claiming 'that Mr. Hamilton had
been barred from pitching by the
eague. Umpire Kcohokalolo paid
no attention to tho verbal protest
and ordered the gamo continued.
The lino up of tho two teams
was as follows:
