WAILUKU, MAUI, T. II., FRIDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1915.
Contracts Let By
Loan Fund Board
Howell and Lada Get Kihci Road
Job Railroad Company Will Fur
nish Sanitarium Materials.
It now looks as though the Maul loan
Hind commission will soon have some
actual construction work under way.
After five months of preparation, and
various departmental delays, the
hoard, at its meeting Wednesday
night, awarded the contract for the
construction of the Klhcl homestead
road to Hugh Howell and Pan'. F.
Lada, at their hid of $3961, tho work
to he completed In 70 days. Tho con
tractors announce that they will begin
work at once.
Tho commission also accepted the
tender of the Kahulul Railroad Com
pany for furnishing the materials for
tho kitchen and dining room, and the
ice nnd refrigerating plant for tlte
Kula Sanitarium, at its bid of $3100,
delivered at Paia, within the next 90
days; and accepted with thanks the
olter of the Maui Agricultural Com
pany to deliver this material at tho
sanitarium free of charge.
Besides this tho board called for
tenders for the furnishing of muter
ials and construction of tho now
Wailuku-Kahulul waterworks. These
bids will bo opened on February 4.
Tho other tenders for tho Kihel road
job were J. C. Foss, Jr., $4848, 100
davs; J. A. Aheong, $45G7, 100 days;
and William Cullen,$4300, 75 days.
Cullen was the contractor to whom
the bid was awarded tue nrsi umo
tenders were called for, at his bid of
$4350, time 70 days, but who forfeited
bis 5 percent deposit after ho had
taken a look at the job. Tho specifica
tions woro later modified, to bring tho
work within the appropriation.
Still Working on Ollnda Reservoir.
. It was decided that the work of con
structing tho Ollnda reservoir shall
bo lot in two contracts, tho first to
cover tho excavation, corcwall, and
piping under tho dam; and tho other
to cover the lining and finishing. It
was considered necessary to do more
testing of tho materials under tho dam
site, and a coro-drill was ordered from
Honolulu for the purpose of making
these tests. It Is believed that this
will bo completed within two weeks
time, and that tenders may bo called
for at the next mooting to be held on
Kuiaha Macadamizing Still Pending.
Although tho comisslon, at Its pre
vious mooting had ordered tho prepar
ation of plans and specifications for
tho macadamizing of tho Kuiaha
homestead main road, this had not
been done, because Engineer Balch
stated ho believed that a water-bound
macadam, of the type proposed,
would not answer the purpose in that
district. After discussion, however,
tho board was of tho opinion that this
was tho best type to be built, and tho
engineer was again instructed to pre
pare the plans, to bo acted upon at the
Kahakuloa Road Needs Money.
Tho county is to bo asked to co
operate with the loan fund board In
tho construction of tho Kahakuloa
road, to tho extent of building several
hundred feet, for which tho funds are
not available, and without which tho
road will bo of no use. If tho county
will consent to do this, tho work will
probably be proceeded with at once.
It is understood that tho Kahulul
Railroad's bid for the sanitarium ma
terials, is at bare cost, and that the con
tract was taken on this basis for tho
purpose of helping tho sanitarium to
got all it may for tho money avail
able. This was tho reason also that
, the Maul Agricultural Company is to
do tho hauling for nothing.
Tho commission also delegated to
its secretary, R. A. Wadsworth, the
purchasing of tho refrigerating ma
chinery for tho sanitarium.
All of tho members of the board,
with tho exception of S. E. Kalama,
who Is ill, woro present, Including
Acting Superintendent of Public
Works A. C. Wheeler. The board
showed a strong tendency to Impa
tience at tho lack of progress they
bavo been able to mako, and Indica
tions aro that things will bo crowded
to tho limit from this time on. Super
intendent Wheeler indicated his desire
t6 cooperate through his ofllco to this
end, in tho fullest measure.

Lodge Maui Honors
Banquet At New Maui Hotel a De
lightful Affair Local Masons En
tertain in True Maui Style.
In honor of James Fcnton Fonwlck,
district inspector of the Clth United
States Masonic district, and five other
prominent Masons of Honolulu, an ex
ceptionally enjoyable banquet was
given last Monday evening at the
Maul Hotel, by members of Lodge
Maul, No. 98 i. Tho other visitors
were William Bell, Malcolm Macln
tyro, J. K. M. MacLcan, Walter C.
Shields and Irwin Spalding. The ban
quet canto at tho conclusion of some
interesting exemplifying work In tho
lodge on 'Saturday and Sunday, for
whllch purpose tho Honolulu members
had como to Maul.
Tho banquet was notable also from
the fact that It was really In the na
ture of an opening event for tho re
modeled Maul Hotel, and as such was
a real triumph for Manager Brother W.
II. Field. Tho work on the building
had been rushed to completion for tho
occasion, and tho beautiful new lobby,
with Its natural finished wood work.lts
sotting of palms and ferns, and tis de
lightfully Inviting .tropical aspect was
brought into use for tho first time by
Lodge Maul's guests. The handsome
enlarged dining room lent itself ad
mirably to tho purpose of tho banquet,
and the great tables were beautiful
In their decorations of roses, ferns and
There were 73 members of tho order
at the tables when the feast began at
7 o'clock. And it was a jolly party that
discussed tho delicious menu, which
was as follows:
Olives - . Radishes
Filet of Kumu a la Maltro d'Hotcl
Veal Cutlets a la Flamando
Punch au Maraschino
Roast Island Turkey
Mashed Potatoes Asparagus
Neapolitan Ice Cream
Assorted Small Pastry
American and Roquefort Cheese
A number of excellent addresses fol
lowed, Brother Ben Williams acting
as toast-master wtth great ability.
The first toast, "The President," was
responded to by Brother D. 11. uaso in
his usual able manner. He was fol
lowed by Brother D. C. Lindsay, wno
responded to the toast, "The Grand
Lodge of Scotland," and handled his
subject in masterly fashion.
Brother James Fenton Fcnwick af
terwards spoke on "The Grand Lodge
of California," to which jurisdiction,
from tho Scotland grand lodge, tno
Maul lodge is contemplating transferr
ing its affllatlon. Tho topic was nat
urally one of particular Interest to all
tho Masons present.
Brother J. B. Thomson sang a song
something about the "Safety Pin Be
hind," which struck a lighter vein, and
caused much hilarity. Brother Rich
ard LUlico's song, "My Sweetheart
When a Boy," was also appreciated,
as was a poetical note of regret from
Brother Dr. McConkcy to Host Field,
over his Inability to bo present, which
was read by tho toast-master. How
ever tho cental doctor agreeably dis
appointed tho assembly by putting in
a slightly belated appearance.
Congratulations were in order for
BrotherC. C. Campbell, who was unable
to bo present owing to a very Import
ant event which occured at his home
In Puunene tho same evening. It was
announced that mother and daughter
"were doing well.
Other speakers of the evening were
Brothers Duncan, Bell, MacLcan,
Rosecrans. West, Green, Villiors, Bow-
dish, T. D. Collins, Spalding, Scott,
Fleming, Weight, and Howell.
D. C. Lindsay, W. O. Aiken, Hugh
Howell, D. H. Case,, and W. H. Field
rendered Maul's Civic Convention
song "What Maul Means to Mo."
An interesting feature of tho even
ing was tho taking of a subscription
among thoso present for tho Christ
mas fund for tho Molokal settlement,
which resulted In the sum of $107.30
being collected in a few minutes,
which will go towards bringing cheer
to tho unfortunato wards of tho Ter
ritory at Kalaupapa.
Tho gathering broko up about 10-30
with tho singing of "Auld Lang Syno,"
and tho guests of honor took machines
for Lahalna, niiero they boarded the
Mauna Kea for homo.
