that will consume many days, and
in the meantime the flow of water
from the only reservoir situated at

argument for a largo storago reser

an emergency, which is certain to

Tho observation of Mr. Howell
that the consumption is about 50,
000 Gallons a day is nearer the

fact that tho Waiakamoi re.-ervoir

Tidwoll came to Kahului just at

had been no duties collected for a
long time. If he had visited Kahu

different state of affairs. If ho had

that in a period of ten weeks or so,
84,103 tons had been handled and
