A FLYING VISIT
(From The Star-Bulletin April 19)
The island of Kauai is off the
beaten track of tourist travel, but
it is more beautiful and more pic
turesque than any other island of
the Hawaiian group. Because it is
away from the usual tourist routes
and because his curiosity had been
excited b y descriptions of the
Garden Island," George Hamlin
Fitch, literary editor of the San
Francisco Chronicle, paid a flying
visit to Kauai yesterday. Mr.
Fitch gave the following account
of his impressions to a Star-Bul
"The trip to Kauai is far easier
than I had been led o- .oftJeet-.
The ocean was comparatively calm
yesterday and neither on the trip
down nor back did I have any
touch of sea sickness. I was forced
to take the old Inter Island steam
er W. G. Hall, but she proved to
be a comfortable boat and I was
the only cabin passenger. In the
early morning we reached Ahuki-
ni station, where suRar is loaded
from the neighboring plantations,
and from this station I took the
mail automobile to the citv of Li
hue. The road was through fine
fields of cane of the Caledonia
variety which grows larger than
the Lahaina cane seen near Hono
lulu. "I had a letter to L. D. Tim-
rnons, editor ot the oarden IS'
land, but as this was his publi
cation day, he was unable to "pilot
me around the island as he wished
to do. After breakfast at the Fair-
view hotel, where I met Judge
Charles Dole, Mr. Timmons turn
ed me over toE. II. W. Broadbent,
who took me in his machine to his
experimental ranch of 26 acres,
which he has planted to cocoanuts
This ranch is beautifully situated
on the road to Hanalei and it has
one of the prettiest bathing beaches
on the island. Here Mr. Broad-
bent has planted cocoanuts which
have made a remarkable growth
He is alsjo experimenting with
beans, corn, watermelons, alfalta
and other crops between the trees,
which are planted 18 feet apart
Mr. Broadbent proposes to use
this place for a summer camp and
has erected a pretty bungalow.
"Here I was passed over to the
Rev. J. M. Lydgate, of Lihue, who
is an acknowledged authority on
Kauai and tht other islands. Mr.
Lydgate surveyed the road to the
volcano of Kilauea and he has
done good service to the Hawaiian
communities on Kauai by aiding
them in the division of their
communal revenues. He h a s a
store of information about the
island and its history, which makes
him an ideal guide. In a powerful
road car we made the trip to a
point six miles beyond Hanalei,
where the road ends and the sheer
rock wall that runs part way
around the island begins. In no
part of the world is there any ride
of 35 miles which will equal this
read from Lihue to Hanalei in
grandeur, beauty and variety of
scenery. If it were in Kurope it
would be famous and thousands
would visit it
"The road follows the sea coast,
now cut into the face of soft rock,
with the breakers dashing against
its foot, now among pretty little
valleys formed by the descent of
rapid streams from the mountains.
The soil is brilliant red and the
contrast between this and the vari
ous shades of green was very
effective. Bold headlands reach
far out into the ocean; against the
rocky points dash snowy masses
of breaking foam. Rounding these
points one comes upon lovely,
crescent beaches of dazzling -white
sand, while as a background for
these pictures rise the rugged
mountains, deep green almost to
their summits, and with silvery
threads of mountain streams fall
ing from the deep clefts in the vol
"We passed Wailua beach
where Jthe river is spanned by a
line steel bridge and where the
road skirts the breakers that dash
against the rocks. Then we came
to the Kipaa flats, with a curious
village of several nationalities, and

rice fields, with the lighter green
of the sugar cane patches o d the
highlands above. Beyond are the
lands of the Moloaa hui, a native
Hawaiian community which ob
tained possession of a large tract
of good farming land but has done
little to develop it. Near by are
groves of kukui trees, which are
of great age and beauty. Then in
quick succession we passed Kilau
ea sugar plantation, with i t s
little church end sohool. Kalihi
wai, with a perfect beach, and
lastly Hanalei, the gem of the is
land. Here is a quaint hotel which
looks upon the solemn grandeur of
the Napali mountains great mas
ses of sombre volcanic rock pres
enting a skyline that is rugged and
singularly impressive. Here are
deep gorges that seem riven by
some great cataclysm of nature;
slow-dropping, misty streams that
remind one of Tennyson's pictures
of the land of the melancholy lotus
eaters, and moving masses of fleecy
clouds that veil the face of the
mountains and recall the banks of
fog that sweep in from the Golden
Gate and hide the summit of Ta
maliais. Take it all in all, this
view from Hanalei is one of the
finest that Nature can produce.
"Near here I saw one of the
grass houses which were once
common to Hawaii. We went as
far as t h e road ran, about six
miles from Hanalei. Bevond is the
sheer rocky wall against which the
breakers dash with resounding
roar. The sentinel peak is a tre'
niendous headland, from which in
the old days natives cast burning
brands. In returning, a visit was
made to the MoBrjde Sugar Com
pany's hydro-electric plant, on the
edge of the Wainiha valley. Here
water brought from far up in the
mountains is dropped 595 feet
through three large pipes to the
l'elton wheels and Westinghouse
"On the return trip we stopped
at the old mission house after
wards occupied for many years by
the Wilcox family. Here in the
large kitchen is a great fireplace
like that in the missionary house
in Honolulu. It was my misfor
tune not to see the Waimea side
of the island, but the day was
ideal, and memory will long hold
these pictures of mountain and
valley and a sea as blue and lus
trous as that of Greece."
