What is Best for Maui
is Best for the News
IHOW MAUI'S $100,000
lExposed Piping Buckles Few Breaks-LooksOdd,
But Will Still Be Useful.
The work of laying miles and
miles of water pipe for the Kula dis
trict has been going on merrily for
sometime, and prompted partly by
curiosity and partly by stories that
are being carried about concerning
isaid work, a representative of the
Muui News made a thirty mile trip
on horseback last Sunday, for an
actual look at the 8100,000 itnprove
ment, and to get first hand informa
tion of what is going on and what
has taken place.
In several places on the six-inch
"section, between Waiakoa and Oliri
da, it had been reported the pipes
had buckled, twisted and had brok
'en from no apparent cause at all,
except that the sections had been
joined together by Contractor Land
graf. The breaks happened where
the piping were hud across ravines
and had been repaired in a way, so
thejforeman of the section gang said,
that would preclude further breaks.
Probably his predecessor had as
much faith in his own work, but
the forces' of nature are beyond us

Originally it had lain in a straight
Hn. hut sun heat and the chill of
night had forced it to expand and
contract so that a twist to the right
followed a twist-to the left in regu
lar succession over miles of piping
At one place, on the five-inch
section, the pipe line ran syphon
like down one side across the bot
, torn and up the other side of a wide
ravine finally crossing the rpadway
to disappear in a green field
of growing com. Across the bottom
of the ravine it was held above
eround on some Bhaky wooden
making a curve to the right and,
after crossing a small rulge in
the middle of the ravine, where the
piping lay in a small trench, it bal
anced off the first curve with
similar one to the left.
Experts in civil engineering work
say this buckling and twisting will
keep ' right on until water flows
through the pipe which will then
tend to keep it cool and prevent
further bending and buckling. Al
though to the eye the buckling of
the piping looks odd, yet in fact,
the actual damage, if any,- will be
very small, no greater than what
should be; allowed for breaks or
wear and tear from usage.
From Waiakoa to Olinda the six
inch Dining will bo buried in
trenches, and, except where laid
across the numerous dry ravines

fects, but from Waiakoa to Ulupa

in fact tenders for that work is be
ing advertised to be handed in July
30th, so at least, it will be between
four and six months before water
could be conducted through the
water mains laid by Contractor
Langraf in the Kula district. And
in the meantime until the water be
gins to flow through the pipes they
will buckle and twist, as a resident
of Kula said, buckle and lift itself a
foot off the ground between morning
and noon, and repeat the operation
ilinost daily, let alone its twisting
from one side to the other like an
uneasy fretful thing.
The work of laying the remainder
of the piping is progressing satis
factorily under the conditions, aver
aging about 1,500 feet daily, and
Contractor Landgraf maintains that,
but for the delay in delivering the
piping on the line, he could push
the work ahead faster and finish it
sooner. The piles of piping lying
besides the government road towards
the Ulupalakua end of the line
seem to favor his contention.
The contractor has laid or joined
all of the six inch piping, except
ess than five thousand feet at the
Pulehu section of the line. All of
the five inch piping has bet'n con

One of the most remarkable
gatherings in Hawaiian history was
held at Kailua the Inst past of last
month, It was the eighty-eighth an
nual session of the Hawaiian Evan
gelical Associarion, which com
memorated the ninetieth anniversary
of the landing of the first band of
missionaries on these Islands.
A large number of delegates and
pastors were present from all parts
of the Territory, and there were pro-.
bably as many as six hundred peo
plo in attendance at the meetings
each day. '1 he Inter Island Steam
ship Company was considerate of the
arge crowd that had to bo handled,
and provided the Kinau on the out
ward trip from Honolulu and the
Maui on the return trip in addition
to regular boats.
The entertainment committee, of
which Rev. Stephen Desha was the
chairman, did exceptionally well in
handling such a big crowd. Abun
dance of the best kind of food was
provided for all who came to the
meeting. An immense lanai was
constructed under the direction of
Rev. E. S. Timoteo, where the
majority of the delegates had their
meals. The English speaking con
tingent'was cared for in royal style
by Mrs. J. C. llobinson in the beau-
ful old dining room of the palace.
The exercises began on Saturday
with an address of welcome by Rev.
Dr. A. S. Baker. In the name of
the old missionaries, whose houses
were still standing near the Church,
in the name of. the many in the past
who had helped in the work in Ha
waii nei, and in the name of the
present members of the old Kailua
Church, he bade the guests welcome.
We are very much in doubt if an ab
ler welcoming speech were ever
made at the opening of the annual
session of the Association. Rev.
W. B. Olsen in an excellent address
gave the key note lor the wnoio ol
the meetings. Ho .spoke of the
early evangelism and the need today
of earnestness and enthusiasm for
the courso of temperance.
Fifteen hundred people were pre
sent at the memorial exercises on
Sunday, when the handsome Mem
orial Arch was dedicated. The arch
was made out of the stono near the
old church, and is a substantial
memorial to the missionary fathers,
Opukahaia and his companions
The speeches of Rev. Messrs. Desha,
Guhck and Oleson were full of
The key note of the six days of
meeting was the coming question of
whether or not liquor shall bo man-
ufac;ured and sold in the Territory
of Hawaii. Contrary to tho false
report in one of tho Honolulu pa
pers that Prohibition had not many
suDDorters at this great convention,
it can be truthfully said by those
who arc thoroughly conversant with
the cnt're session at Kailua that of
the hundreds of people- there, all
but a handful were solidly for Pro
hibition. Thoso who were not with
the majority were for liquor, they
claimed, largely lor political rea
sons. The speeches in favor of Pro
hibition by Messrs. Desha, Nakuina,
Macoon, and others were remark
able- pieces of oratory not only, but
were made of the solidiest kinds of
argument, so that those who dared
to say a word on the liquor side of
tho question admitted that they were
worsted in argument. In fact, those
present at Kailua, who have attend
ed similar conferences in the States
and elsewhere, pronouueed the Kai
lua Convention one of unusual forco
and earnestness. For tho cosmopo
litan spirit and their determination
to succeed, we doubt if this conven
tion could be equalled in the last
1 decado of great religious gatherings
Supervising Principals to be
A centralization scheme was out-
ined in a report on a plan for bet
ter supervision of the public schools
of the Territory, made to the Com
missioners by Superintendent Pope.
The new system is considered gen
erally to be an improvement on the
old, both from an economic and
utility standpoint. A saving in
actual money and a general' cooper
ation of work is expected to be ob
tained at the same time.
The Islands, under the new sys
tem, will be divided into educational
districts. The first of these is form
ed of Kauai and Niihau containing
seventeen schools and sixty-nine
teachers to be in charge of a super
vising principal who will also bo the
principal of one of the schools.
The second will bo Oahu, with
seventeen schools and forty-eight
teachers, supervision in charge of
tho superintendent assisted by tho
The third will bo Muui, Molokai
and Lanai, containing thirty-nine
schools and ejghty-two teachers.
One supervising principal is to re
port regularly on all the schools in
this district, making visits to Mftlp
kai and Lanai once or twice each
term to lay out work and give as
sistance. The Lahaiiialuna Semi
nary is not included.
The fourth is East Hawaii- Ha-
makua, Ililo and Punacontaining
twenty-seven schools and sixty
teachers. Ono supervising principal
also to be a regular principal of one
of the schools of the district, is to
make, regular visits and reports on

All the requests for vacations
Requests for additional teachesr
in schools in all islands were dis
cussed at length. It was shown
that they are needed in "probably
otic-third of the schools but that the
commissioners so far have found
no way in which they can be add
ed. In somo thure is no room and
finances are such that they can not
be stretched over to make appoint
ments for all applications. Proba
bly six or ten teachers can be ap
pointed but the commissioners will
have to wait until the payroll for the
coming year is completed.
There has been some doubt as to
tho status of tho holidays usually
observed in some manner by tho
schools and this matter was thresh
ed out at length yesterday.
J no lollowiug were denoted as
holidays during which tho schools
are to close: Labor Day, if during
school time; Thanksgiving, Wash
ington's Birthday, Good Friday,
Decoration l)ay and Kaiuehameha
Day. The holidays to be observed
on the school premises are Arlior
Day, Lincoln's Birthday, .May Day
and Flag Day.
