The History of Lihue
(Continued from last issue.)
"Again we were inuncominonly J did get through. We stopped to
far and Mr. Isenberg and a nativ'rni're the Magnolia and accident
were pushing when Mr. Isenberg 'a al,-v 1 ,,carI-v broke oiT a flower
powerful arm pushed the pole in
so far that it could not be pnl!ed
out and we sailed away from it.
"Another time I was sitting on a
low bulwark when bump we went
into the "hau" bushes that hang
into the water. The bulwark was
carried away and I was thrown
down but safely caught by mv
sleeve, Mr. McBryde being behind
me and helping me to rise. He al
ways persists that he saved me
from falling overboard. Sometinus
Mrs. Burbank was quite alarmed
but Pattie and I made ourselves
very general laughing at and with
all and bragging of our superior
sailorship. Mr. Hardy reclined on
a mat in his canoe laughing at us.
He invited me to join him but I
told him that he looked like a
savage chief and I would not leave
the fun of the scow.
At the break in the mountains,
the scenery is very fine; below that
...... . . ...
it is a rather flat, but indeed we did
not look at scenery much we were
so interested in our mishaps. The
gent'emen did not enjoy them
selves much as they had to work
so hard, but there was almost con
stant shouts and laughter kept up.
Mr. Melchers, Marshall and Wide
mann with Emma, Pattie and Ot
to came aboard, we had to tell
them our history. We came sud
denly upon a place where the hill
rose directly from the water; half
way up there is a singular series
of columns resembling the Giant's
causeway in Iie!ai:d. Then we
came up on a b autif ill place. Beau
tiful kukui trees grew down to the
very water'a edge. The Governor
came riding along, cheers were
proposed, one given; but eie the
2nd and all were laughing so that
it was feeble. At half past two we
landed at a pretty place and alter
washing and arranging hair Mr.
Hardy and I laid out the food.
Pattie came and helped us too.
Sardines, biscuits, three kinds of
loaf cake, cookies, sandwiches,
melons, oranges and ale, composed
the rural feast. My cookies were
much praised, greatly, to my de
light. I made 4 loaves of fruit cake,
but it was so burnt I took but 2.
Mr. Hardy said that it was a wed-
ding cake ana would know wnose.
Mr. Hardy and I passed the food
as everybody else claimed together,
Mr. Widemann, McBryde, Mel
chers, Isenberg and Marshall to
gether; Miss Knappand Mrs. Bur
bank, the Governor and Dr. Smith
on a settee. Papa a'nd Mr. Pome
roy by the table and the girls and
boys together, 30 in all. We passed
food till nearly all seemed well
helped and then Puttie and I sat
down mid'ay between Papa and
the "Gents clan." Everyone was
at Mr. Marshall to know the depth
of the caves at "Haena." I inno
cently asked him too and then Mr.
Melchers with the funniest gestures
began to tell how that two days
before Mr. Marshall had persisted
in going in a canoe alone and just
stood up to make a very low bow
t o Mrs. Wundenberg and the
ladies, lost his balance and disap
peared, timing up quite sobered.
It was all acted" out and we laugh
ed till we cried. When all were
"pau" the natives came and finish
ed the food and I gathered up
the dishes, gave the Ale bottles
to Mr. McBiyde and then we were
ferried over and climbed up the
bank and soon found our horses.
We girls under the guardianship
of Mr. Isenberg reached the house
first and made ourselves at home.
When the rest came those who
were not tired started for the dairy,
etc, We went thro' the garden. As
we passed through the dining room
only one half door was open. Pat
tie was first, Mr. Isenberg sprang
forward to open the other, "I
think we can go thro'" she said.
The look of doubt that he cast on
the lower part of her dress was in
describably comical. But ' we" all
. Tike, Jr.
which was presented lo nie, Pattie
made some exclamation about
Roses and immediately a pretty
bunch was presented to her. We
passed the dairy and made ourselves
comfortable under the peach tree,
where we ate a vast quantity of
peaches. There were no mangoes
iipe. We returned and in passing
m fence' Emily who was consider
ably in front called out that instead
c f climbing the stile we had better
go thro' a breck in the fence. I
was first, Pattie next.. Our hoops
flew out and the gentlemen behind
laughed Mi. McBrvde said he
should believe in "Punch" here
after. At the well house Mr. Mel
chers Vld a pan for us to drink
and to wash our hands. Pattie
could not get her handkerchief
handy and he handed her his nice
silk one. At the dairy Mr. Isenberg
held a nan of milk for thosp wlm
, , , . .
Before we left the house they
. , ,
brought out the Autocranh Hook
and we all wrote our names.
"Pattie and I walked our horses
much of the way home and laugh
ed over the day and far into the
night; we laughed over a day that
I shall always remember as one of
the merriest I ever spent."
Linue Plantation was commen
ced in the vear 1851 bv General
J. F. B. Marshall. The first chim
nev was built in 1851, also the dam
forming the mill pond, thus, pro
curing power to run the rollers.
The original purchase of land was
I an oblong tract cf some 2,000
acres, in 1849. a portion cf the es
tate of Governor Kekuanaoa. Later
were added Ahukiniin 1866, about
300 A., Hamunaulu 17.000A 1872,
purchased of Kam. V for $7,500,
and Wailua 3,000 A was leased
from the government and released
in 1887. Subsequently there was
the Lindemann lease of some 2.200
A in 1868.
The original shareholders who
in 1854 formed the co-partnership,
nudei the name of Henry Pierce
and Co., to grow cane were Henry
A. Pierce, Win. L. Lee, Wm. C.
Parke, Edwin O. Hall.Chas. R.
Bishop, Chas. W. Austin, W. H.
Rice, Jas. E. B. Marshall and Ash
er B. Bates. General Marshall was
the first manager, with Mr. Wide
mann headluna, planting the first
cane in 1850. He was succeeded
by William Harrison Rice in 1854.
The plantaiion was very small, the
entire cftp consisting only 125
tons, dependent entirely upon rain
fall and success seemed a long
ways off if at all, until Mi. Rice
conceived the plan to bring water
from the mountains by means of
ditches and tunnels. The first ditch
from Poo lo Lihue was completed
in 1856 and some of the tunnels
constructed then have done duty
faithfully for over fifty years. This
first ditch proving latei inadtquate
due to the growth of the area under
cultivation, a second ditch was
constructed in 1870 by Mr. Paul
Isenberg. This ditch tapped the
Waiahi stream, or south fork of
the Wailua river and was laid out
by Mr. G. N. Wilcox. In 1877 this
stream was tapped a second time,
as a large supply of water was
needed for Hauamaulu, and in
1895 a waterlead was constructed
to the north branch of the Wailua,
the water being carried across the
south branch into the Lihue ditch
by means of a large pipe.
The laborers of the early days
were Hawaiians at 25? per day
and it was due to their distaste
for tunneling that the early ditches
were so circuitous, involving great
cost of upkeep, which same has
been reduced by the present
management by the construction
of more tunnels and a subsequent
shortening cf the ditches. Con
struction of the several ditches ai.d
a number of reservoirs places Li
hue in the lead i.f the Island plart
ations in matters of irrigation.
