THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESDAY, MAY 2, 1916
Ripley & Davis have completed
plans for the tuberculosis hospital
which will be erected on Terri
torial lands, donated for that pur
pose, with funds supplied by Hon.
and Mrs. A. S. Wilcox. It was
generally understood that the land
would become available when the
cane was taken off in December,
but report has it that it tnav not
be occupied until a lease expires
some months hence.
A Honolulu paper has the fol
lowing to sav of the hospital plans:
The institution will be modern
in everv respect. Its initial capaci
ty will be about fifty patients, but
it is so designed that acoommoda
tions may be incre.sed indefinite
ly by mere addition of new wings
and cottages. In the beginning,
however, it will cmnsist of seven
or eight buildings, grouped in the
center of the tract. All are to be
of frame material.
Long, Open Corridors
The administration building will
be the center or hub of the plan,
with the others radiating in all
directions from it. This main
structure will contain the waiting
room, office, dispensary, X-ray
room, laboratory and similar apart
ments. At the rear and connect
ed directly with it another edi
fice of similar size will contain the
general kitchen, nurses' dining
room, servants' dining room and
it a considerable distance from
ectangle formed by those two
.dings, and directly from the
, corners of the rectangle, the
rds are to be located These
ill be connected with the main
structure by covered, open corri
dors. The total length of these open
corridors will he about 450 feet.
These will serve not orly as pas
sageways between the buildings,
but as sitting room for convales
cents. In addition to the four wards
there will be four separate cottages
for private patients, a separate de
tached cottage for the nurses, a
large detached building for ser
vants, a laundry and a morgue.
Planned For Ventilation
The chief aim of the entire de
sign is to get the greatest possible
amount of ventilation for patients
at all times. A liberal number of
windows is provided, but besides
these each room will receive fur
ther ventilation from an opening
that will extend around the four
walls of each apartment just un
der the roof, these apertures being
well protected from inclement
weather by wide overhanging
All windov.s will be the patent

pants to catch the breeze at all
times, keeping them open in the

to permit the ingress or egress of
wheeled chairs. A modern system
of plumbing planned particularly
for hospitals will be installed, and
nn indirect lighting system , afford
ing a subdued light at night and
eliminating the glare that is so
harmful to the eyes is included in
The administration building is
large enough to accommodate all
business that would be necessary
in an institution far larger than
the one to be built now. Tnis
with a view to the future and the
possibility of adding materially to
the accommodations in years to
come. In its arrangement the pro
posed institution will be second to
none in the islands.
OUR NATIONAL PARKS
Special Washington correspondence of 'CHL
Washington D. C , April 11.
In reporting favorably upon the
bill to create a national park in
Hawaii, the House public lands
The bill proposes to establish
the National Tark, including the
three crater areas and natural
wonders of the three treat vol
canoes of Hawaii, respectively,
Mauna Loa volcano, Kilauea vol
cano, and Haleakala volcano.
By the provisions of this bill
75,295 acres are set aside, four
ninths of which is public land, and
the balance, chiefly waste land,
belongs to education aland eleemos
ynary trusts said to be willing
to cede the land in large measure.
No appropriation is carried by
the bill, and it is provided that no
appropriation shall be made until
proper conveyances in the matter!
of the private lands shall be made
to the United States such as the
Secretary of the interior shall find
necessary. Otherwise existing
claims and piivately owned lands
are unaffected by the bill.
Strong reasons for creating a
national park in this district are
that the craters in question are
among the most remarkable of
natural wonders. Kilauea is the
ost continously active volcano,

A plea for a "drv'' Hawaii wss
made at a meeting of prohibition
advocates held here yesterday at
Poli's theatre under the auspices
of the Antisaloon League of the
District of Columbia. The Rev.
J. W. Wadman, of Honolulu,
who is here to urge the passage of
a prohibition law for the Territory
of Hawaii talked on the evils of
drink in Hawaii. He said the
natives wanted prohibition, but
that certain interests in the States
were spending thousands of dol
lars to perpetuate the saloon in
Mauna Loa the largest volcano,
and Haleakala the largest and
most spectacular crater i n the
world. There is urgent need for
the protection of curiosities now
being damaged. Scientific studies
in inaccessible parts of the area,
of importance for the public safe
ty, will be furthered by Federal
control and park improvement.
Scientifically and popularly, the
volcanoes are a national rather
than a local asset, and the opin
ions of travelers appear to be
unanimous that this area is of na
tional importance for park preservation.
