tho Kahului Railroad Company

the pipo from Kahului to Keauhua
and the trucks carry it about four
miles further up Ilaleakala and
roll it off on the roadside near the
boundary line between Kula and
Makawao. Each truck for a load
takes .12 or 13 pieces of this lS-foot
pipe. As there aro seventeen miles
of it or about 5,000 pieces, and as
the motors can make but few trips
a day, it will take months for the
transportation of it. After has been
conveyed from Keauhua, nearly
double the number of trips must
bo taken to bear it still further up
the mountain to the pipe line, ei
ther at Oniaopio or Kaonoulu or
A road at Oniaopio is being espe
cially constructed by the County
for the purpose.
One of the trucks made a suc
cessful run to-Kaonoulu and back
tho other day.
Transporting this heavy pipe is
hard on the gasoline drays, but
much more burdensome upon ox
carts. T. Awana of Makawao has a
contract for hauling some of the
pipo from Brewer's, Makawao to
Olinda and finds three pieces a
sufficient load for his oxen.

The Other afternoon Dr. W. F.
McConkey and Chairman Pogue of
tho supervisors held a conference
at Paia concerning tho establish
ing a sanitorium in a simple man
ner at Keokea, Kula. The idea
(roughly stated)is for the County to
lease a small piece of land at Keo
kea and set up a few tents upon it
for tho use of indigent tuberculo
sis patients, the establishment to
be under the charge of the govern
ment physician aided by the resi
dent policeman. Whether such a
scheme will be found practicable
or not, it is certainly most compli
mentary to the humanitarian mo
tives of its originators.
