The report follows:
Wailuku, Maui, August 10th, 1915.
Hon. S. E. Kalama, Chairman
Board of Supervisors,
County of Maui.
Your committee appointed at tho
July meeting of tho Board to investi
gate the Makawao water works, begs
o report as follows:
Several days wore given to a close
btudy of this water system both to the
general outside management and to
tho clerical side. In addition to the
nformation thus gained, your commit
tee has beon' given much valuable In
formation and assistance by the Coun
ty Auditor; and all figures hereinafter
given have passed his inspection, and
can be verified by an examination of
his official records.
The following tabulation shows tho
eceipts and expenditures of the Ma-
kawao water works system, from Jan
uary 1, 1913, to Juno 30, 1915, as taken
from the Auditor's records.
Year Receipts Expend.
1913 $2,303.71 $5,194.73
1914 2,288.74 C.17G.79
1915 (1st half) 1,191.30 5,239.07
Tho following list shows names of
all parties appearing on tho books of
the superintendent, as delinquent in
sums of $5.00 or more, on March 31,
W. Miner, $10.5G; W. C. Crook.
$6,33; W. Cooper, $15.12; Tam Loo,
$14.44; Kanoho, $9.59; Hop Fat,

$04.52; A. F. Tavares, $37.97; Edsar
Morton, $75.39; Ah Sam. $12.G3: Ray
mond Ranch. $499.37; A. David, $0.38;
naieauaia Ranch, $10.81; Mrs. K. Pa
lo, $0.00; Nakamura, $39.92: Maul Tel.

to, $12.17; Mrs. Olsen, $10.01: Est.
John Kaluna, $15.87; S. Kailewa,
1ii.iv; Kama, $s.42; Fat Sing, $10.17,
sundry accounts less than $5.00 each,
$138.27; total, $1,122.0S.
It. is claimed by some of the parties
mentioned that they have received no
bills for the past quarter or two, hence
are in arrears.
Your committee is not able to pass
upon tho validity of theEO contentions,
but puts before you conditions exactly
as they appear on tho waterworks
Tho following table shows penalties
unlawfully remitted by the superinten
dent; such action being diiectly in
violation of Section 21 of Ordinance
No. 27; the list is so long that only
names or parties owing 50c or over
nre given. (This list is omitted here,
nut totals $85.69.)
Wrong Rate to Ranches.
Attention Is called to tho accounts
of the Raymond and Cornwell ranches,
both of whom have been undercharg
ed for their water from January 1,
1914 to March 31, 1915, tho period your
committee has covered in its examina
tion. Section 10 of Ordinance 27
states that water used up to 450,000
gallons per quarter shall be charged
at 15c per thousand, and all in ex
coss of that amount at 12c per thou
sand. In both cases above cited, all
water has beon charged at 12V&C
A table shows amounts as chargeU
these parties against the proper
chargos for the tamo term, by quar
ters. It shows thoso two parlies ow
ing for water delivered to them, but
paid for as follows:
Name Amt. 10 p. c. Total
Cornwcjl Ranch.. 71.05 7.10 7S.15
Raymond Ranch. 141.27 11.12 155.39
Your committee rocommonds that
hills ho promptly sont these parties
for tho amounts stated above. It Is
unfortunate that an examination of tho
accounts previous to 1914 cannot bo
made at present, as interesting feat
ure might bo uncovered thoro also.
Where Has the Water Gone?
From a careful examination of the
books for tho first quarter of-1915,
we notice that of the 200 or so rate
payers on tho books of the Makawno
water works, slightly over one-hnlf
are aliens or alien concerns. Of the
213 privileges, 151 are paid for on n
"lint rate" of $1.50 per quarter: 00
are at the rate of 15 cents per thou
sand gnllons; two, the Cornwell and
Raymond ranches, together using over
21 per cent of the total water deliver
ed by tho pipe line, wero charge in
error at 12 per thousand gallons
straight. Assuming that no "flat rale"
privilege holder has been using more
than the 10,000 gallons per quarter (It
was a matter left to the discretion of
the superintendent to Install a meter
wherever or whenever he had reason
to believe that a flat rate payer was
using more water than tho 10,000
gallons per quarter which he was on
titled to on his $1.50 flat rate), and
using the superintendent's ledger
charges as a basis upon which to work
we find that tho amount of water ac
counted for has been ns follows:
151 flat rates $2?G.50 or 1,000.000 gals.
00 15c rates 448.84 or 2,992,2G0 gnls.
2 12'c rates 103.99 or 1,311,920 gals.
213 $S39.33 or 5,310,180 gn's.
for the entire quarter. During this
same period the Venturl Meter at the
head of the Iron pipe, showed that
approximately 17 million gallons of
water passed. The question which re
mains unanswered is, what became of
tho difference? If the Venturl Meter
does not record correctly, why has it
not been adjusted ere now7 If its rec
ord Is correct, why such a discrepan
cy between tho amount of water deli
vered and that accounted for?
Your committee has not been able
to arrive at any definite conclusion on
Ibis point, for the superintendent's
books are In ruch a shape that any
thing but conjecture is impossible.
System Going to Pieces.
Your committee also made a care
ful examination of the pipeline ilself
from the Intake at Walkamol to Omn
oplo, a distance of probably seven
miles, of which the first four miles,
or from the intake out as far ns Olin
da is 12 in. wooden stave pipe, and
the balance G in. galvanized iron pipe.
It is evident that the stave pipe will
not last many years more your com
mittee believes that after four or five
years from date It will be giving so
much trouble that it will bo neces
sary to renew it. Even now, almost
every trestle supporting the pipe

between Olinda and tho intake is in
bad condition, and in some cases these
trestles have already been renewed.
The longest and highest trestle of all.
crossing Kakipl gulch is in tho worst
shape, and must be repaired at once,
or it will certainly go down taking a
long stretch of pipe with it, such a
break would be serious, as there is
very little material for pipe repair

would bo required for repairing. Plen

Your committee has heard much
complaint on the grounds that the

and his assistants. Your committee
in Its investigations found such con
ditions existing; but is not able lo
state definitely that partiality hap or
has not been generally shown.
The superintendent in making col
lections for water rates, has not
thought it necessary to deposit with
tho Treasurer all county funds in his
hands at the end of each and every
month, as he' certainly should have
been required to do; but instead, has

scattered around the Kula district,

laxness Is around tho entire system
from top io bottom.
Such unbusiness-like comildons as
exist in the Makawao waterworks ayi
tem are much to bo depre-atcd, and
come about from two i-iures: First,
an unfit man as superintendent; and
second, laxness in ho Comity Engin
eer's department. Why tho County
Engineer should have delayed making
a change in tho management of the
Makawao waterworks system until
this time is not plain to us, it he wero
at all cognizant of tho condition of

strictly prohibited In paragraph 4 of

as his reason for delay In carrying out
this order, that ho had orders from

Loss of $10,000 Per Year.
Your committee also wishes to make
tho recommendation that tho water
rates be Increased. That this system
can over be made a paying Investment
for the county wo doubt; but It Is our
opinion that no great loss should bo
allowed. What motive prompted the
reduction of 37V& percent In rates on
July 1, 1914, to that specified in Ordl-
nano 27, In view of the expense of up
kepp, the Interest on investment, etc.,
is not clear to us. Briefly stated tho
situation in tho past two years has
been approximately thus:
Interest on Investment on

Total annual oxpenso to tho
Less annual returns from

We believe that with tho Olinda
reservoir completed the prospect of a
steadier water supply will bring more
rate payors 25 per cent at tho out
side. But this increaso in revenue
will be more than offset by the inter
est on tho now loan. Then again, re
pairs on the lino will Increase, as tlmo
goes on; and a further expenditure of

Editor Maul News:
I wish to draw attention of the
people of Mnul County to the fact that
liana district might ho an Island by
Itself, as a person to get to Wailuku
has to take a steamer and be absent'
from his work for a week.
If our county fathers had a little
more foresight they should have had
a road on the dry side of the Island
instead of trying to make roads on
the rainy side of the island. The
County will never have money enough
to mnke these, and if said roads should
bo made tho upkeep would bank
rupt the County. But If there was a
road on tho dry side of the Island, the
cost of building would not be near
what it would cost to build a road on
the rainy side and tho upkeep would
bo very little.
This is written by ono who has been
on an island where they know how to
make roads and keep same in good
condition. Also It has been their good
work to sco that all the people can
easily drive to all the districts.
