HENS LETTER TO
The letter of J. F. C. Hngens to
Delegate Kuhio in regard to Nawi
liwili breakwater, to which reference
has already been made in these
columns, was as follows:
Honolulu, T. II.,
DccemlKr 5th, 1916.
Honorable J. K. Kalanianaole,
Delegate to Congress,
Washington, D. C.
My dear Kuhio:
Last nirfit's press dispatches, in
enumerating the items in the Rivers
and Harbor Bill relative to comtc m
plated improvements in the Islands,
listed the Hilo and Kahului haroor
projects, with a Federal appropria
tion of $100,000, or thereabouts, ;
each, hut failed to make any m -n-tion
of the Nawiliwili harbor pro
jeet. I hope that the latter has not
been overlooked by the friends of
Hawaii in Congress. I need not
dwell on the great importance of
having, or rather in securing for
Kauai a safe and adequate harbor
and landing; you are fully posted
in the premises, and I believe, aside
from recognizing the crying need of
the contemplated improvement at
Nawiliwili, you are somewhat per
sonally attached to fair Kauai by
home-ties', the Garden Island being
Any expenses that may become
necessary during the various stages
of bringing the Nawiliwili project
for proper consideration before Con
gress and of keeping the interest
therein alive, will be, of course,
gladly borne by us and the people of
Kauai; and I appeal to you to watch
that the project is not dumped I
feel that you, with your long years'
experience in legislative matters and
j'our knowledge of local affairs and
local needs, are in a better position
than anybody else to impress upon
Congress the necessity and import
ance of the project, and that the
ever increasing passenger and freight
traffic, following in the wake of the
astounding development of Kauai,
as well as the growing tourist inter
course, practically make the planned
Some time ago, when at your
instance Mr. McClellan was retain
ed as representative of the Chamber
of Commerce, the Kauai people and
especially the Lihue residents, res"
ponded nobly to the call for funds
to make the arrangement possible.
I only mention this to show that
the Lihue people have their hearts
set on this project and wish Con
gress to see the great need thereof;
it would certainly prove a keen dis
appointment to them should the
enterprise fall by the wayside at the
I should appreciate it very much,
indeed, if you would drop me a few
lines advising me of the status of
the Nawiliwili harbor project, as I
am very anxious about it, and 1
hope that you will not take it amiss
that I have addressed you in the
(Signed) J. F. C. Hagicxs.
(The wireless reply of Delegate
Kuhio to the above has already
leen published. Early in Decem
ber Kuhio introduced in Congress
a new bill covering the Nawiliwili
IIar!)or item ami tin; same will
come up for consideration early in
January. It is believed that there
is a line chance of the appropriation
being secured ht the present session
and of work ln-ing begun in 1!U7.

KAPAA RAILWAY A
According to statements given out
by the Governor in the Honolulu
Star-Bulletin thcKcalia Kapaa rail
way is a private enterprise. The
Governor Pinkham, who hash, en
tudyiug the Kauai railway situa
tion, declared today that there is no
government control over the wh irf
at Kealia or the railroad which leads
to Kapaa from that town.
"There is no one in the govern
ment that has any control of the
wharf," says the governor. ''The
government has not and never has
had any agreement covering this
stretch of traffic between Kealia i nd
"The only agreements the govern
ment has affect the homesteaders of
Waipouli and South Olehena. The
governor lias been trying for two
years to get a common carrier riil-
oad on that side of Kauai, as no
common carrier road exists there
today. The more feeling that is
stirred up over this trivial matter,
the more difficult it will be found
to secure such a road."
Governor Pinkham took up his
recent study of the railroad situa
tion on Kauai following a declara
tion by Commissioner James Wake
field in a harbor hoard meeting tiiat
something ought to he done to com
pel the Kapaa railway to haul freight
for merchants there.
