As predicted by Tire Gardkn Is
land in its last issue, the Board of
Supervisors at Thursday's special
meeting, took steps to releive the
state of affairs which has existed
in Waimea as the result of a short
age of water. The plantation has
asked to be allowed to place an
automatic valve at the intake, and
after due consideration, permission
was granted, the county obligating
itself to reimburse the plantation
for the necessary outlay in install
ing the same.
The Lihue Power Plant
The Ditch System for the Lihue
power plant, situated on the bank
of the Waiahi Stream is rapidly
anoroaching completion. The Ditch
lti'y mostly tunnels, will aggregate
about 4 miles in length in two
branches uniting a short distance
above the station. The capacity of
the ditcli will be about 25 mill
galls, a day. The fall will be about
265 ft. and about 500 horse power
will be generated which will be
transmitted to Lihue over a pole
line about 6 miles long. It is said
that reinforced concrete poles will
be used and that every precaution
will be taken to make a thorough
ly durable and efficient line of it,
so tint there may be as little trouble
and expense as possible in the oper
ation. The substation where the
power will be "stepped down" will
be on the edge of the Kapaia Valley
near the Koreanchurch. The wheels
generators, transformers etc. are
said to be due in September. Mr.

representing the Hawaiian Electric

For Wailua District
Plans are being drawn f o r a
new school building and teacher's
for the Waialua District. The Li
hue Plantation has granted the De
partment of Education a lot suitable
for the purpose on a site, on the
belt road, near the residence of
Sunday's Ball Games.
Last Sunday's game in Eleele
proved to be a one sided affair.
The McBryde's started off from the
beginning and never had a sign of
trouble ahead of them. The score
at the finish was 21-2 in favor of
the locals. The Lihue team played
poorly without any exception could

Through tffc endeavors of Super
visor W. D. MtBryde, the govern
ment has set aside a seven-and-a-half
acre lot, situated on the hill
on the Eleele side of the present
Kalaheo school grounds, upon
which will be constructed when the
needs require, a new and modern
school for Kalaheo. Mr. McBryde
has for sometime felt that the pres
ent school grounds were iudequate,
and in going into the matter, dis
covered that the only available
land for a new Site lay along the
road towards Eleele. Getting into
communication with the lan d
officials in Honolulu, he succeeded
interesting them with the result
that a n agreement was reached
whereby the government has set
aside the above lot in accordance
witli Mr. McBryde's views.
Under Mr. McBryde's guidance,
the ground is to be plowed and
leveled, grassed, fenced, and trees
planted. AccordingtoMr. McHryde
the new school will not become a
necessity for several years, but by
planting trees and putting the lot
into shape at the earliest possible
date, will mean that when the
building is constructed it will be
the climax to an otherwise most
complete and pleasing combina
tion. In Walter McBrydc, is to be
found the personification - of pro
gressiveness, and ability to carry
to perfection plans for extracting
beauty from Mother Nature's
bountiful stoic. The Kukuiolouo
park, one of the most popular of
Kauai's parks, is a monument to his
eltorts. llie DeautiKU L a w a l

the neat little cottages ,for the

homesteaders w i t h their pretty
homes scattered from Eleele to
within the. vicinity of Koloa, the
beautifying of the roads by border
ing them with trees, and numeious
other improvements, all of which
hive for their object, the upbuild

testimony of Mr. McBryde's worth
as a proniotor who has-no superior
