hood of 22 bags of cleaned rico to tho
acre. Kalihlwai rico will yield well
tills year totaling about 1300 bags for
tho rico area, whllo Kalihikai which
has slightly less area than Kalihlwai,
will produce a crop slightly over 1300
bags if weather conditions remain
favorablo for a little while longer.
Throughout Hanalel district only ono

The New Wailua Bridge
High Class Engineering
It has been ovident for a good whllo
now that there was something doing
at tho Wailua bridge, but in the early
stages It has not been ovident what.
Tho old steel bridge which has been
In placo some twenty-iivo years or so,
owing to the action of the salt spray
from tho sea, and perhaps to neglect
In early years, is now pretty badly
gone, especially at the Kapaa end
farthermore it is too narrow for tho
present greatly increased traffic. At
first there was somo thought of re
pairing and widening it, but It was
finally decided to put in a new con
crete structure which should bo equal
to tho growing demands, and good for
Tho now bridge will consist of six
concroto arch spans CO feet In length,
making a bridge 3G0 feet long by 18
feet wide. It will bo what is known
as the through arch type of bridge,
with the road-way part way up the
arches and suspended from them.
Tho concrete reinforced arches will
havo a radius of 32 feet and a cross
section dimension of 22 x 20 inches.
The arches will rest on concrete
piers built up from solid foundations
deep in tho bed of the river. These,
with the exception of the end abut
ments, consist of two concrete cylin
ders securely banded together at tho
top and extending down to a solid
foundation, from 20 to GO feet below
tho water. Tho wooden caissons, or
retaining barrels, In which theso con
crete cylinders are built, aro made of
long staves banded together by hoops,
nnd driven down by a pile drlvor
hammer, two at a time, little by little,
around tho circle until they have
reached a solid bearing at the bottom.
Tho water and sand aro then pumped
out and the concrete filled in.
The abutment on the Kapaa end,
whero tho present structure does not
rest on a very good foundation, will
be reinforced by driving about it a
series of concrete piles which will go
down well Into tho coral stratum, and
tho whole will then bo banded to
gether into a solid mass.
About 1200 barrels of cement will
be required for tho bridge, and some
CO tons of steel. Tho completed
structure will cost from $35,000 to
$40,000 and will bo the largest bridge
of tho kind in tho Territory, and the
best. It will bo completed about tho
end of tho year.
The design of tho bridge is one
much used in modern times, and of
demonstrated einciency. Tho plans

County engineer, who hns given the
closest and most careful supervision
to tho construction, being camped

THE NEW ITER
SYSTEM FOR LIHUE
For some years tho Lihuo water
supply, as distinguished fromthat of
Grovo Farm, has como from a small
reservoir about half a milo back of
tho County stables. This in turn was
supplied from ono of tho main ditches:
This supply system Is now to bo car
ried far mauka to a recently construct
ed line of tunnels abovo tho German
foreBt, which ultimately drew the sup
ply from tho Waiahl stream in tho
mountains near tho Waiahl power
house. Being thus almost entirely
above population, and mostly safe
from contamination by tunnel location
the supply will bo excellent, only just
short of that which is drawn direct
from tho original springs.
This very commendable improve
ment is In lino for the final finishing
climax which will intercept tho under
ground supply of tho various stroaniB
that flow from tho slopes of Kilohana,
in tire samo way that Grovo Farm has
done, and thus furnish an absolutely
ideal sanitary supply.
