connect a one and one-quarter inch
(1V4") pipe to the County's main 'at
Kapaa, to carry water for the uses of
the petitioner was received. After
careful consideration of this matter,
upon the motion of Mr. Menefoglio
seconded by Mr. Bettencourt Jr., the
petitioner was permitted to put in a
pipe the size of which to be approved
by the County Road Supervisor on
condition that he build a water tank
on his premises from which tank he
draws water for his uses.

Upon a motion of Mr. McBryde, sec
onded by Mr. Menefoglio, the County
Road Supervisor was empowered to

The report (P 1652) of the County
Road Supervisor for the month of
March was received and filed: The
clerk was instructed to forward cop
ies of this report to the Senators and
Representatives of the County of Kau
ai now in the present Legislature of
Hawaii. This report is as follows:
Lihue, Kauai, April 2, 1919.
Honorable Board of Supervisors,
County of Kauai,
."Following is my report for the
month of March, 1919:
In Waimea, Koloa and Lihue Dis
tricts patching of macadam roads
went on and all roads are now in fair
condition. In Hanalei District at Ki
lauea the asphalt was extended to
within half a mile or so of Kawaihau
District line. Paving work went on
at the Camp 4 short-cut, Makaweli.
The new machinery for macadamizing
the above road will be assembled this
week. Fair progress was made on re
surfacing at Lawai-Kalaheo whore the
new work was extended across the cul
vert at Kalaheo stream a distance of
about one n.ile from Lawai stream.
The Lawai ' grade will be resurfaced
within the next two weeks when the
machinery will be removed to Walii
awa. Preparations are being made to re
sume work on the Wailua Bridge
which will start up in full force in a
week or so. The Kanac'e road con
tract is nearly complete. Work was
started on the Lawai road contract.
I wish to call the Boards attention
to the condition of some of the small
er bridges throughout the County.
Thera are a number of wooden bridges
that should have been rebuilt long be
fore now, we have repeatedly patched
them in order to carry them over un
til they could be replaced by concrete
The time ha3 come that many of
them will have to be renewed or re
placed by concretG immediately.
At present high prices of lumber
and comparative cheapness of cement
it is poor economy to build of wood.
The bridges on the main road that
must be attended to are as follows:
40 feet bridge at Waiawa-Waimea
District. This bridge is propped up
by posts or underpinning in the
stream and would probably last an
other year provided the underpinning
is not knocked out by a freshet.
Bridge at the mill Eiti at Koloa. The
bridge has beep kept up by patching
, and repatching for years and is now
in 'need of nearly all new lumber.
Half-Way Bridge. The center pier
J and west abutment are not good;
; they should be strengthened or re-
built provided a new bridge is not to
be built soon.
I Nawiliwili Bridge is in need of new
; stringers and new flooring. This
bridge is a makeshift, was hurriedly '
built to span the washout and was In-,
tended to stand only for a Bhort time.,
The foundation bents are very light
timbers and most of tLo stringers
were out of o'd bridges. To carry this
bridge over another year it will bo
necessary to strengthen tho founda
tions, put in some stringers and put
in a new floor.
Kapaia Bridge is in need of some
now stringers and a new floor or else
a concrete bridge on the existing abut
ments which are good masonry struc
' Anahola Bridge ns it stands is a
very light makeshift. It was hurried
ly erected out of light lumber for
bents which are placed very wide
apart for this typs of trestle. This
bridge will not stand heavy loads. It
not to be replaced this bridge should
be provided with additional founda
tion bents and with bo many posts to
obstruct the passage of drift wood the
whole structure would likely go out
with the first big freshet. As this
bridge stands now it could easily be
swept away by high water
Lovell Bridge half mile or so beyond
Koclau Bchool, Hanalei District. This
bridge was hurriedly erected to span
a big washout. It was intended to
last a few years, not longer than the
life of the first floor-flanking. By put
ting on a new floor and doing minor
repairs the above bridge could go over
another year or two.
Small bridge hall-way between Pi-
laa and Kilauea, a makeshift trestle
affair cut of all old bridge lumber
thrown across the washout and has
been in immediate need of renewal
ever since it was erected.
Kilauea school bridge, 30 foot span
of all old lumbe r abutments were
built of stone with the intention of
puting on a concrete top. This bridge
is in immediate need of a new super
structure. Kalihiwai Bridge is of very light con
struction and will not stand the in
creasingly heavy traffic unless it is
kept practically as good as new.lt will
not stand much rust some of the mem
bers have already rusted so badly
that they had to be reinforced by put
ting in false members.
Waipa washout was spanned by
temporary trestle of light construe'
tion and will last about two years or
Lumahai Bridge. .A year ago this
bridge was patched up so as to tide
It over for a year or two and is now
in need of some repairs in order to
tide it over until a new bridge can be
The small bridge at Wainlha will
soon need a new floor and some
stringers. On account of increasing
ly heavy traffic wooden structures do
not last as they did formerly and on
account of the extreme high price of
bridge lumber compared with the
more moderate increase in the cost
of cement, the difference in cost of
concrete and wooden bridge is not so
great proportionately as it formerly
I recommend that all bridges that
are renewed be done in concrete
Some provisions should be made by
the Board on account of the above
Schools: Kapahi School was en
closed with glass and painted outside
Wailua school house was also en
closed and painted.
Mr. Brodie's cottage at Hanapepe is
being overhauled and a new bath tub
An addition to the carpenter shop
at Kapaa was put on.
Water Works: The pipe for Ana
hola water works wa3 delivered and
the trenching is now being done.
Tunneling Lawai stream into Ka
laheo water works is going on and it
looks as if It can be put through with
out striking a great amount of rock."
The Board upon the motion of Mr.
Menefoglio appropriated the sum of
Fifteen Hundred Dollars ($1500.00)
out of available moneys in the Treas
ury for the construction of concrete
culvert at Puuou, between Pilaa and
The following resolution, which was
offered by Mr. Menefoglio and sup
ported by Mr. Bettencourt, Jr. was
unanimously adopted by the Board
Whereas the changes brought about
by the war have made living condi
tions much more expensive, and
Whereas all corporations in the
Territory have materially increased
the wages of all their employees, and
Whereas this Board of Supervisors
has deemed just to increase the pay
of the County laborers to a minlmnm
of $2.40 per day, and
Whereas the demands, especially
on the Public Works Department of
the County are continually increasing
also on account of increasing home
Whereas with the increased rate of
wages it may not be possible to take
care of all need on account of short
age of money.
The Board of Supervisors of the
County of Kauai petition the Legisla
ture of the Territory of Hawaii now
assembled, that an act be passed
whereby Section 1236 of Session Laws
of 1917 is amended so that the County
of Kauai be allowed to increase, it
necessary, the Tax Rate to 3 5 of one
per cent for Current Expenses and
