A resolution urging connive to
tnkr immediate net ion to rxtctnl
and protect the luirlmr of N.iwili
wili will le presented t tlie lonnl
of hiH'lwr commissioners and adopt
ed at it, next regular inoetinjr, in
accordance with a motion put-mid
carried by the board yesterday.
The action catne up in connection
with the report of Charles H. Forlx-s,
chainnan of the commission, on hi
recent visit of inspection to Kauai.
Fori cs inspected the various wharves
on the island, and said, regarding
the Nawiliwili wharf:
"I would recommend that the
board go on record as recommend
ing the congress the imperative
need of better protection at Nawili
wili. "With the proposed road to Na
wiliwili there is every reason to be
lieve that this will become an im
portant port of commerce."
The debate that resulted brought
up the report of several years ago
of the federal engineers in regard to
a breakwater at Nawiliwili. Com
missioner McCarthy was o f the
opinion that the board should rec
ommend to the legislature that that
body once more urge upon congress
the claims of the port. It was
finally agreed, however, that no
harm could result from the board
itself petitioning congress to begin
the barbor work at Nawiliwili.
Chairman Forbes in his report
said, regarding the Waimea wharf,
that on the occasion of his visit
there. NovemU-r 8, he "was in
formed ' that, the work would be
completed within a week. ' The
track had been laid and the piles
1 cut off.
Regarding the Nawiliwili wharf,
he said be had instructed the con
tractor to proceed with the work.
He also recommended the installa
tion of a new five-ton stiff-legged
The Hanaloi wharf, the chairman
reported, is in need of some im
mediate repairs. The new shed is
well built and is being well patron
Forbes called the Imam s atten-
i tion to the inability of the Knpaa
merchants to have freight delivered
from the Kcalia wharf. This, h
said, was on account of a question
that had arisen between the rail
road and the interstate . commerce
commission relative to the status of
the railroad as a common carrier
The interstate commerce commis
sion held that the railroad was a
common carrier and the railroad
took the opposite view, and, in
support of its contention, discon
tinue! the delivery of the freight
from the Kcnlia wharf totheKapaa
The chairman recommended that
some steps be taken to offer relief
5 to tlie Kapaa merchants, and sug
nested the condemnation of the
present wharf at Kealia with
view of having it under the control
of the bn;ird, ''whereby the public
would be benefitted."
Th" board granted a request of
the liord-Young Engineering Com
pany for a thirty-day extension of
time, without penalty, in which to
complete the work on the Nawili
wili wharf. Discussion developed
the fact that the contractor was not
to blame for non-completion of the
work within the time limit.
