From One to Four Thousand
Dollars Above Appro
priation. VifiLL DRAW NEW PLAN
Nearly Five Thousand Dol
lars Bid For Sanitary
At the meeting of the Loan Fund
Commission last Wednesday after
noon, bids for Hanapepe's new
school building were opened, there
being three bidders, two of whom
came within eight dollars of the
same amount. T h e bids were
opened by Chairman McBryde and
were as follows:
Geo. Marshall, Honolulu $24,500
C. B. Hofgaard, Waimea 21,990
Mr. Chapin, Honolulu 21,982
The bid by Mr. Marshall also
included a bid on toilets, etc., for
the sum of $4,500, while the bid
of Hofgaard & Co. allowed for the
construction of ordinary buildings
extra at the amount of their bid.
As the only difference between the
two, last bidders was eight dollars,
and the. fact that Mr. Chapin's bid
did not include these outbuildings,
' it will be seen that our local firm
was in reality the lowest bidder.
jrtfHowever,. as the appropriation
t, Jiouifts 'to buf $20,000 the bids
verc'all turned down, and a reso
lution passed for new specifications.
After the meeting, C. T. Green
when asked if it were possible to cut
" 'iJ$ie exPenses down to meet the
f; -'appropriation, replied that the
only remedy he could think of was
to put in smaller beams, etc., but
that it was his opinion that new
specifications should be drawn.
The general trend of opinion
concerning the affair was that the
present specifications called for a
building which could not be con
structed for the amount of the ap
propriation. At present, the
thing is in the air and while it is
certain that the bids were all
'consigned to the waste basket,
there is no one who can prophesy
what the next turn will be. Those
present besides the members of
the Board were R. P. Spalding,
F. M. Prosser, C. S. Dole, W. H.
Rice, Jr., Philip Rice, C. B. Hof
gaard, R. Mahlum, W. F. Sau--dBioru,

The second Kntiai-Maui lHuvlingv,i:oiilest was pulled
the Kegel Club Alley last Saturday and, as predicte.l by
Gakdkn Island, the homo team had a walk-over with
down, which is indicated by the 'score of 4,755 to 4.235 in
favor of Kauai. An enthusiastic audience greeted the players
who played a tip top game throughout. Wolters crown
ed himself with admiration in securing such a high score,
while Maser and Hills crowded their" seconded and third places.
Kuhlman, Crawford and W. H. Rice were not in their usual
form and consequently did not bowl up to their standard.
This, however, was offset by the excellent work of the other
trio. The scores individuallyand colk'ctively are as follows:

Mr. Prossei .ollowed this com
munication with a strong argument
supporting his cause, explaining
very plausibly, the benefits which
would accrue to both contracting
parties: that the company regard
ed the proposition as a mutual
benefit to all parties concerned and
tlfat his company could easily con
struct a biltlg' of its own, but if
possible would prefer to enter iuto
a copartnership with the County
purely from a business standpoint.
Supervisor Guy favored the peti
tion, explaining that in his opin
ion, in instances where thecounty's
interests -could become identified
with those of corporations of the
importance of om sugar industry
he could see no objection to per-
! mitting trains
to pass over the
to , couuty bridges. Chairman Wish
