Rumored Butchers and Gra
There is a current rumor that
graziers and butchers are about to
combine or to come to an under
standing so that the prico of beef
would go up.
It is reported graziers are asking
10 cents a pound for beef on the
hoof and butchers are about to ask
15 cents a pound for beef, and it is
also reported that owing to the
long drouth and incident a scarcity
of beef cattle certain graziers have
entered into a combination to sell
beef on the hoof at 10 cent a pound
which will virtually force but
chers to raise the price from 124
to 15 cents a pound.
Mr. W. T. Robinson, proprietor
of the Wailuku Meat Market,
denies this and states that as long
as he can obtain beef cattle at pre
sent figures he would not be a
party to any combination to raise
the price of meat to the consumer.
At present the two wailuku inu-
cher shops are killing and selling
in all about twenty head ot aver
age beef cattle a week.
When the Circuit Court opened

their opportunity for a change in
the dry aE dust daily routine and a
pleasant departure from the strict
formalities prescribed by the so
lemn precedents and customs which
doth hedge us round the austere
precincts of tho temple of justice.
Mr. A. Enos., for the jurors took
the floor and affably reminded the
court of the long wait between
smokes for court and jury alike,
when lawyers are arguing law
points or indulging in wordy tilts
over grudgingly given testimony,
whilst court and jury sit and won

Surveys Made and Much
The County of Maui has been do
ing the preliminary work of obtain
ing data, and surveys for the pro
posed pipe line to carry water from
the Koolau mountainside to the
parched fields of Kula., Following
is the report submitted by Engineer
Report of J. C. Foss, Jr. surveyor
in charge of the proposed Kula
pipe line for November, 1!)0S.
November has been spent in in
vestigating the permanency of the
flow of the stream as far as Ilono
inanu (No. 15). All streams from
Honomanu on until rea'ching Koa
nae Valley are of no value with the
exception of two stivams flowing
over the pali into Keanae at an
elevation of about 5000 feet. These
I estimate as being able to furnish
12,000 gals, per day during the
dryest times. But for present de
velopment, I am not plunnitig on
extending the pipe farther than Ho
nomanu. The data tabulated at
the end of this report will give an
idea 01 the stream How at tlieir re
spective elevations during climax of
the intense drouth. One can esti
mate of this drouth by knowing the
fact that the Haleakiila Ranch pipe
never before since being installed,
10 years ago, failed to be able to
supply water to the ranch.
Rasing our judgment on this fact,
Mr. C. H. Kluegel, Mr. W. F.
Pogue .and myself came to the fol
1st. That with a (i in. pipe, laid
. , t 1 1
on a l' per cent grade and leaving
the woods at an elevation of -1150
feet, enougli water (00,000 gal.) can
be gotten during the most unfavor
able time with the cisterns of Kula
is-storage places and also small re
servoirs to be built by the Territory,
to guarantee an adequate supply for
20 years hence.
Note: (i in. pipe from Honoma

made will have to he run over again

Triangulation work for the sur
vey has been greatly hindered by
rain and fog, but one clear day
more will see it completed. The
water to be utilized is on Haiku but
tho exact location of which can
