Landing Not Used
Will Remove Light
Iarbor Board Decides Kihei Light Is
Unnecessary Expense Steamship
Company Has Refused To Make
Use Of Expensive Wharf
Because the Inter-Island steamship
company ban consistently refused tn
make use of the Kihoi wharf follow
ing the abandonment of the old Me
G nor's tending, several years ago.
the harbor board has decided that
there is no sense in keeping up the
light at that point, and consequently
as decided to discontinue the same
as soon as rssible.
At a meeting of the board last
wc"k, it was proposed to take away
the lighl the 1st of October, but on
repi scntation of Lighthouse Inspec
tor i. 'ledge that the matter should be
referr "I to Washington through pro
per channels in order that the light
may be olllcially marked from charts
and navigators notified, it was decid
ed to suspend action till November 1.
The Kihoi wharf, on which many
thousands of dollars have been spent,
is used only by a few small fishing
boats and an occasional freight boat,
the dangerous Lahaina landing re
maining the only landing place now
served by the Inter Island on the lee
ward side of Maui.
Under a former administration
when the Kihoi wharf was built, it
was declared that the steamship com
pany would be forced to use the land
ing, but the company steadfastly re
fused to do so and apparently t ho idea
of compelling it to do so has long
;lnce been abandoned.

The wedding was a very quite one,
and was attended by only a small
number of the bride's family and
more intimate friends. The happy
couple expect to leave shortly for San
Francisco where they will make their
home, Mr. Smith being connected
witli the Ann of Shrove & Company,
The fact that the bride is leaving
