Park for Hanapepe
J. M. Lydgate exhibited a map of a
proposed park and playground for Ha
napepe down near the sea at the
mouth of th9 river on the west side.
It was a stretch of about ten acres
lying between the road and the Maka
weli railway. It was a fine flat stretch,
overlooking the sea, and of a sandy
loam composition that would give a
splendid turf; ideal for all kinds ot
games and always clean.
It waB movefl and carried that the
Board of Supervisors be requested to
petition the governor and the land de
partment to reserve and sot aside this
tract for the benefit of the Hanapepe
community for park and playground
The Puu ka Pele Road
Mr. Brandt reported informally on
the progress of the Puukapele road
pipe line, etc. He had just recently
been up there with the supt, of public
works and others. In regard to the
road, the plan approved was to spend
the greater part of the $30,000 in grad
ing to a six per cent basis, a stretch of
about eight miles above the cane fields.
This would cost about $2500 a mile
which would use up about $20,000. The
balance would be spent in grading and
macadamizing below. The road is to
go up what is known as the Puehu
ridge, starting up, just beyond the
Faye house. The work will go forward
all through the summer, but It will
not interfere With the present road,
as it is a different location.
Work Is well along on the pipe line
for water supply. The pipe is all dis
tributed. The tunnel Is well under
way, and thus far no draw back has
developed, so that the work will b
pretty well completed during the sum

to the parks committee, feeling conft
dent that he would prove a valuable
addition to the same.
The secretary was Instructed to
draft a proper resolution of apprecla
tion for the late E. E. Mahlum, who
was the first treasurer of the chamber.
and ever an active member in all mat
ters ot public interest and welfare, and
send a copy thereof to his relatives.
Disgraceful Prevalence of Booze
Mr. Broadbent called attention to the
very .deplorable and disgraceful condi
tlon that the country was getting intc
in the matter of booze. It was every
where, openly, and could be had any
where by anyone who wanted It; and
drunkenness was becoming notorious
"Why, it Is worse, far worse, I really
believe, than in the old license days.
And the worst of it is that the children
are taking to it. I saw three boys tht
other day, not more than twelve years
old, as drunk as old topers. They saj
the women make it while their hus
bands are at work, and have it tot
them when they come home.
Contempt for Law
''One ot the worst features of the
matter is that it is a flagrant violation
of law. The makers, and dealers, and
drinkers openly glory in their con
tempt for the law. 'Law doesn't cut
any figure these days.' The result is
that all law is more or less discredited
and we are raising up a generation ot
BolBheviki that will be increasingly
lawless and criminal
"Now, the question is, what can be
done about it? They say there are no
funds to do anything with that it is
iid to the Internal Revenue depart
ment, and that they can't do anything.
Mr. Brandt also felt very strongly on
the subject. It was a deplorable con
dition of things, and some action
should be taken immediately. He sup
ested that a letter should be written by
the secretary to the federal authorities
setting forth the wretched condition of
things, and calling for some immediata
remedy for the same, and suggesting
that an agent of the revenue depart
ment be stationed here, to give hla in
dividual attention to the matter. This
was put in the form of a motion and
Incident Sunday Movie
C. B. Hofgaard called attention to
the immoral aud indecent moving" pic
tures that were being shown on Sun
day evenings under the special con
cession granted by the board of super
visors. The condition was, as he un
derstood, that the Sunday evening pic
tures should be "educational, moral, or
Biblical," but instead of that they are.
many of them, immoral. Indecent, scan
dalous, and nasty. "Why, it looks as
though they got hold of the very worst
pictures they can. and run them on
Sunday night to outrage an injured and
long-suffering public! Is there no way
(hat this sort of thing can be checked?"
Make Protest o Treasurer
Mr. Brandt, as a member ot the
board of supervisors which granted the
concession, said that the matter was
put into the hands of the Treasurer,
who had the power to suspend the con
cession it the conditions were not
lived up to. He suggested that a com- j
plaint be addressed to tne Treasurer,
and that It should be made emphatic
and vigorous; It was a evil that
should be checked.
A motion was passed to this effect,
and the Secretary was authorized to
take the matter up with the Treasurer.
Several new members were" pro
posed for membership and were duly
The meeting then adjourned.
