Dear Mr. BridgewAter:

The big steel building for the
Lihue hydro-electric plant, which
is being intsalled by the Hawaiian
Electric Co., is now completed and
the work of erecting the generat
ing equipment i s being pushed
along vigerously. The concrete
pole line from the power station
to the sub-station and to Lihue
and to Hanamaulu mills, is erect
ed and the transmission wires are
ready to be strung. It is expected
that this will make the best and
most modern electric plant in the
Territory as the Hawaiian Electric
Co., has had wide experience in
the installation of plants of this
character, and the huge water
wheels and electric generators
manufactured by the Pelton Water
wheel Co. and Westinghouse Elec
tric & Mfg. Co., contain all the
latest improvements in design
which have been developed, S. T.
Carr, engineer of the Hawaiian
Electric Co., the general contrac
tors, has spent sometime in Lihue
inspecting the work, and states
that, he is confident that the people
will have electric lights by July
fourth. He also announced that
the Hawaiian Electric Co., carries
a large stock of assorted lighting
fixtures, lamps, electric house
hold and heating devices to supply
the needs of the people and that

My dear Mr. Bridgewater:

appeals to our public school chil

IN PLOW LINE
Last week the cane and pine
apple planters of Oahu were invit
ed by Mr. Geo. Angus o f the
Theo. H. Davies & Co , to witness
a demonstration of a large disk
Engine gang plow drawn behind
both a regular traction engine and
the Caterpiliar type.
From all reports the exhibition
was a great success and the gentle
men present have evidently con
cluded that this system was worthy
of their careful consideration for

The island of Kauai has in this
particular like i n many others,
apparently been more aggressirt
than Ohau since on the Kilauea
Plantation Mr. J. R. Myers has
for some time been employing this
method of plowing with much pro
fit, even having used similar
plows. However, the representative
of the John Deere Plow Co., claims
special advantages for his plow
which have attracted the attention
o f every planter whom he was
As it is well known, the
character of the soil of all the is
lands is such that a moldboard
plow can not scour this results in
the plow's congesting easily and
in ineffective turning of the soil.
Disk plows are made for just such
conditions and the Deere plow has
generous proportions weight and'
strength which qualify it for the
heavy soils and permit of its plow

lands. Again such tractors can be
used for other purposes such as
hauling cane or for anything that
needs traction or. belt power.
Mr. Geo. Angus of Honolulu and
W. L. Paul from San Francisco
have been investigating conditions
on Kauai this week and from in
formation gathered from the
planters have concluded that from
60 to 70 of the cultivated area is
in ideal condition for the use of
this plow that has already met
with much favor in the States.
Where the soil contains too
many rocks for a disk plow or the
hills are too steep for any form of
traction engine the plowing must
of course be done in the usual
method which at best is a difficult
The investigators have found
the planters in a receptive mood
since improved quality of work
and economy are two factors that
always interest them.
The conditions at Maui and Ha

stock will be provided to fill the
demand that it is expected the ad

The Teaching Faculty and
grades five and six, met in grade
six room of the Lihue school to
hear the addresses given by Mr.
Lydgate and Judge Dickey on the
life of the late Doctor Alexander.
Mr. Lydgate's talk was most
pleasing, and was so graphically
given that one could almost
feel the personality of that most
learned man. Judge Dickey told
some most interesting details of
Doctor Alexander's early life.
Both addresses were much ap
preciated by the Faculty, the only
regret being that more of his life's
work was not given.
