As one result of Superintendent
Forbes' visit, it willl be recom
mended that Anahola wharf be
discontiucd entirely, and that all
whatf material be removed from
there to Hanalei. The Superiu
jtendent says that it would cost $7,
i 000 to put Anahola wharf in servic-
cable condition again, and that the I
amount of business is not sufficient j
to justify this large expenditure.

DROWNED IN CANAL
A Japanese woman named Kiyo
shi Agawa fell into the stream, or
canal, above the old Koloa mill
about 10 o'clock last Thursday
morning and, being unable to
swim, was drowned. The water
was quite deep at the place.
The woman presumably went
down to the stream preliminary to
doing some washing, and circum
stnnces point t o the conclusion
that she slipped into the water.
A coroner's jury returned a ver
dict of accidental drowning.
Luiue Social Hall is beinu gm
