The matter was discussed alter
which, upon motion of Mr Mc
Bryde, seconded by Mr. Mi-nefi-g-lio,
a committee of three inn-,iM- .
ing of Messrs. Mclirvde, Bra-ult
and Menefogho, was appointed to
confer with the above Committee
and report at next meeting.
The report (P 13ic of the
County Road Supervisor for the
mouth of April last was received
and filed. It was in substance as
"In Waimea District the load
men were emp.o -d on oiling along
Makaweli and litlutiti Waimea
and Kekaha; at both places a very
ht coat is beiup applied in order
hold the already oiled surfaces
good repair. T h e Waime'a
bridge is being scraped and paint
ed. The macadam road from Ke
kaha to Waiawa has never been
oiled but it is my opinion that it
should now be oiled as soon as
In Koloa district. The work of
widening the road where the Mc
Bryde portable track follows along
the road in Koloa was finished;
the portable track was laid and is
now in operation without inter
fering with traffic. The resurfac
ing at Wahiawa was finished and
t h c small macadamizing outfit
moved to Makaweli where it is
now at work for the plantation on
their main street. Some work
was done on Homestead roads.
In Lihue District work was fin
ished on the Nawiliwili valley
road since which the main force
have been at work on the Niunialu
road. The Wailua bridg is being
given a lieaw coat of crude oil
which is applied after hammering
off the rust scale. This bridge is
too far gone to be saved by paint;
the crude oil will hold the rust
somew hat in check
In Kawaihau District the reg
ular force; was mostly employed on
Homestead roads wliic'i are now
idl in ood repair. At the Thronas'
place the concrete bridge abut
ments are just now completed
ready for either a concrete or wood
spar. Which shall I put on? The
macadam at Moloaa was extended
to about -100 feet Lihue side of the
beach road. The Kawaihau force
look over this Moloaa macadam,
shaped up the gutters and kept
the new surface watered. 2000
cubic vards of rock is now broken
ready for macadam at Lihue side
of Moloaa gulch; ail available rock
has been broken at this place and
the stone-breakers will not begin
breaking at Keaha. It is now
lime to settle the matter of right
of way for macadam road through
the- lands of Kealia. I
be readv for macadamizing
Kealia in August this ear.
Hanalei District. The first l! '?
miles of the new grade from Kali
hiwai toward Hanalei is now prac
tically ready for macadam. The
macadamizing outfit was moved
from I'ilaa, set up at Kalihiwai
an 1 is starling crushing today.
The remaining 2 i i miles f the
new grade at Kawa and vicinity
j will be readv for macadam without
delaying the outfit. I recommend
I that the macadam road along Ha-
nalti river be surface oiled in or
! der to prevent damage to the sur
i face at overflow times.
I Water Woiks: It appears to me
j that the best way to remedy the
1 shortage o f water a t Kalaheo
Homesteads is to replace the old
i 3' j" pipe from the spring to the
distiibuting point with a 5" wood
pipe, lay the 'replaced 3! " pipe
from the distributing point as the
JPZ f T
KAUAI GARAGE Co.
main service main as far as it will
go; the shortage to be made up of
4" wood pipe. Then clean and
relay the present 2" mains so as
to serge the people living on the
slopes of Kukuiolono; this pipe
not to be tapped until it reaches
point to be decided upon later.
County Road Machinery: I am
having the old 25hp. gas engine
overhauled at an estimated cost of
$125.00; tlrs is the engine that
was formerly used to drive the big
macadamizing crushed. The 15hp
engine we now have with the
small outfit is too light to run that
little crusher to its full capacity
and it is intended to replace it
with the engine now being over
hauled. Still this crusher is too
small fot the work it has been
doing and for the work laid out
for it in fufure, when the addi
tional power is applied there will
probably be considerable breakage,
consequently it appears to me it
would be wise to purchase a new
crushei a little larger than the
present one to go with the 25hp
engine and use this little crusher
and engine on light small jobs
such as the outfit was intended
Schools: Considerable repair
ing was done at several schools in
the last two months; apparently
there will be but little repairing
left to be done this summer.
In regard to the proposed change
in drainage to prevent freshet and
floods of the premises of Mr. W
II. Rice, Jr., I believe the best way
is to tunnel from the main road
back to the Lihue Plantation Rail
way on the side of the pali a dis
tance of about 750 feet which will
probably cost near $500.00.
I would like instruction in ie
gard to the proposed building at
Kauai High School."
Upon motion of Mr, Menefoglio
seconded by Mr.' McBryde, the
Road Engineer was fully authoriz
ed to oil the Hanalei valley road.
Upon another motion of Mr.
Menefoglio, seconded bv Mr. Mc
Bryde, the County Road Engineer
was given full power to call tend
ers for furnishing the County of
Kauai with a crushing outfit.
Upon motion of Mr. McBryde
seconded by Mr. Menefoglio, the
County Road Supervisor was em
powered to put in a drain pipe at
a proper point between Fairview
Hotel and the Wireless Station in
A request P 1317 from N. Ka-
wano, contractor, for the loan of
the stone crusher now lying at
Waimea for a period of thirty 30
days he paying all damages that
may de done during the use of it,
was referred to Mr. Moragne with
full power to act in the matter.
At 3:30 p. ni. the meeting was
adjourned, subject to the call of
J. F. C. Hagen. of Hackfeld
