'Secretary II. P. Wood of the
Hawaii Promotion Committee who
last week completed a tour of the
island has returned to Honolulu
and gives a most glowing account
of the scenic beauty of the island
which he says is tho leader of the
In an inteiviow with an adver
tiser reporter he says.
"As a result of what I saw dur
ing my short stay on Maui I think
that I am justfied in saying that
that island has more to oiler in
the way of scenic attractions for
fourists than any other island in
the group," said Secretary Wood at
the meeting of the Promotion Com
mittee yesterday, reporting on his
recent trip. Mr. Wood visitsd the
various points of interest on the
VaMey Isle, including the sum nil
of Ilaleakala, the plateau at the
head of Iao Valley, the trail
through tho rubber country and
tho field of the new pinoapple in
dustry, and comes back strongly
impressed with the necessity of
advertising Maui still more exten
sively as a place for tourists.
Among the lecommendations
which Mr. Wood make?, a recom
mendation endorsed by the com
mittee yesterday is that the govern
ment should carry out its policy
inaugurated with the building of
the Kilauea road with prison labor
and put gangs at work in building
a proper trail to Ilaleakala from
Idlewild and also extending the
trail up Iao Valley, past the Need
les and to the summit crater. In
these matters the Secretary was in
structed to bring them to the at
tention of the Governor.
Tho meeting yesterday, which
was attended by W. T. Lucas, .las.
L. McLean, J. A. McCandlcss and
Secretary Wood, developed into a
good roads' caucus, the main dis
cussion of the meeting being on tho
fact that ir. any of tho macadam
roads of the district wore being
allowed to fail into disrepair. Tho

fact that the road department had
patching slangs now at work was
mentioned, however, as promising
better things. This discussion arose
over a proposal to recommend to
t tie Supervisors tho immediate re
pairing of t he Diamond Head road.
This recommendation was not
adopted, however, as it was not
considered advisable to particular
ize in asking for repair?.
In connections ith the trip made
to Maui by the Secretary he re
ported that the hotel accommoda
tions on that island for tourists
were in fairly good shape. Ho
thought that a rest house at Keanae
would make tho ride over that trail
more popular. This was the trip
taken by tho Longworths and the
Londons, a trip which Jack London
declared afforded him more satis
faction than any he had ever taken
anywhere in the world. Tho Sec
retary was instructed to eommuni
cato with the Wailuku Improve
ment Association and suggest that
tho matter be considered.
