of the road overseer, which was
given Buhjcct to the approval of the
hoard to make a fill of a pond that
is a menace to health' and an un

approve the action of the road over

which was unanimously carried.
County Attorney Coke wrote that

The following letters are self ex
planabiryj Huelo, Maui, Sept. 21, liHKI.
Hon. Marston Cnniphcll,
Commissioner of Public Ijind,
Dear Sir: In the matter of the
reservation of public land in Kula
for a "County Farm and Sanitar
ium," I have the following to say
at this time.
We are told by those who are
supposed to know physicians, and
others that there is no climate in
the islands, and erhaps, in the
world, like the Kula climate for
convalescents, those afflicted with
tuliereulosis and other similar dis
eases and for the cure of sick mt
sons generally in other words, tin
air of that part of this Island is the
best in this Territory, anyway, for
the improvement, if not the cure of
the sick. Believing that this is so,
have we not a right to claim that
this climate is an asset, one of our
resources, if you will, which we
should use for our benefit and pro
v It seems to me the very liest use
that this asset of ours can lie put to
is the establishment of a "County
Earm anil Sanitarium," a plact
where the sick. of all grades of socie
ty may go and lie satisfied to stay
and receive the benefit of that
By sick I do not mean the ordi
nary sick alone, hut those with any
serious illness, whether contagious,
infectious or otherwise, a place
where relief can lie given to all
kinds of diseases, anything from
childbirth to leprosy, where no one
will lie turned away.
To accomplish this will take years
of labor and thousands of ilollars, I
know, but is not the good to Ik- de
rived from such rm establishment
worth years of work and thousands
of ilollars to obtain? 1 believe it is.
X Now to establish such an institu
tion, we must have land, not only
on which to place the buildings,
etc., but land for cultivation, land
for the pasturage of stock and land
The Territory now owns the land
is likely to dispose of what is not
needed for County and Territorial
purposes before very long.
What harm can there lie in re
taining, at least for the present, a
large tract from the present govern
ment road up to the top or upper
boundary of the future homestead
lots and between the Kamaole kule
ana or grant and the Kamaole
boundary for this "County Farm."
If in a few years it is evident that
there has lieen more land reserved
than should lie, the Territory can
then dispose of what seems to la
the surplus. If sufficient land is not
reserved now it may lie and is very
likely to lie very hard and exjiensive
to purchase land for enlarging this
establishment later on.
I am very sure if this land is re
served, the County will next year
fence it all up and make a start at
improving the pro.)erty. We cannot
do very much next year as we are
committed to a road and school 'nil
ley that will use up about all our
funds but the next Board of Sujier
visors will lie able to and I firmly
believe will appropriate sufficient
funds to provide for the care of at
least all tuliercular .patients in the
County of Maui, which will itself lie
the most sanitary moves that can lie
That this disease is increasing, we
lielieve, hut only vaguely know how
many among us have the disease.
We, however, have sufficient data
to know that there are many tuber
cular patient in the plantation
camps and among the Hawaiians in
the country portions of the County.
Probably there are 'more deaths
from tulierctilosi in this County
than all other diseases combined.-
In starting this County Farm
and Sanitarium, primarily it would
lie for the benefit of the people of
the County of Maui, but it would
be open to the sick of the whole
Territory and eventually should lie
the retreat, cs-iecially for all those
afflicted with tuliereulosis in its
various forms, from all over the
Territory, something on the same
line as Kalihi Receiving Station is
for leprosy, only of course absolute
ly free and pleasanter for the
A large tract of land would give
the Institution a much better chance
to lie self supjHirting and that is
what we want to make it as near as
tmssihlc, otherwise the County of
Maui alone could never support and
maintain such an institution.
The Kula Pipe Line" will pass
along about the lower boundary of
the Reservation and would supply
the lower mrtion of the property
The Pol i nil i pipe line passes
down n I tout the center of the whole
lot and that water stored cared for
and not wasted would supply the
upper or any ixirtion of the lot.
The foregoing are some of my
reasons for desiring and asking you
to reserve a large portion of tin
land of Keokea for the Maui Coun
ty Farm and Sanitarium. I hnvi
ere this probably tired you out, so
will reserve further reasons and
arguments for some future time.
Yours very truly,
Signed Win. F. POGl'E,
To this letter Commissioner
Camplicll made the following reply.
Honolulu, September 27, 1!H)!I,
Sir: I am in receipt of your
favor of the 21st inst., in the matter
of reserving certain public lands in
Kula for the County Farm and
1 Ml I "
ii you win rememiier l wrote you
sometime ago for your opinion as to
whether you did not consider 200
acres too large a reservation for the
purpose. There is no question in
my mind that the conditions in ku
la are Meal for a sanitarium and I
am quite in sympathy with the
matter and at present writing, can
see no reason w!v the reservation
should not he made in accordance
with your 'request.
