Near the nuarry site materials, lum

A graded road will be made from

A landing derrick is expected over

f WORK ON THE AHUKINI HARBOR
Good progress Is being mado onthe
Ahukinl harbor. New moorings have
been put in to meet the requirements
of larger vessels and a larger business,
and the channel has been buoyed.
About half of the concrete piles for
the wharf construction have been
mado. Work on the Breakwater will
bo held up for a time on account of
the difficulty of securing a railway
power derrick to handle tho rock.
THE NIUMALU ROAD
At tho meeting of tho Board of
Supervisors last Wednesday C. B.
Hofgaard mado a strong appeal for

mea Stables who are doing hauling
for the new harbor development, and
secondarily on behalf-of the poor peo
ple who were marooned there.
Judge Achl also spoke very feelingly
on the same subjeat out of his own
Tho Supervisors recognized tho to
portance of this road, especially undor
the new conditions, with so much
work going on there.
There was some discussion as to
whether It would be advisable to im
prove the grade before macadamizing.
It was finally decided, however, to
let the grade 'stand since the alter
atlon of it would very much prolong
the work. Also it would finally bo
superseded by the now road along
the sea to Nawlllwlli. Furthermore
the heavy loads would bo mostly down
hill, into tho valley, and the grade
would be no serious objection.
It was finally decidod to macadam
ize the road just as speedily as possible.
Tho reception given to the Princess
at tho Armory was rather an unusual

One of tho surprises of tho occasion
was the very largo delegation of Haw
ailans thoro must havo been 200 or
more, from tho different sections of
tho Island. One would hardly have
believed that there wero so many
Hawailans, especially so many of tho
higher class, on the Island.
There wore no as many Haolos as
thoro might have beon. It was a
chanco that should not havo been'

In an exciting game, tho Pacifies
lost all chances of winning tho champ
lonshlp of the Kawaihnu Winter
Leaguo by loslhg to tho Allies on Sun
day by the score of six to five. Tho
Pacifies scored n run in tho last half
of tho 8th with tho scoro at four all,
which looked to bo tho winning run,
but tho Allies managed to tic it up in
tho ninth and won tout in the 10th.
Tho loss of yesterday's gamo by tho
Pacifies leaves tho Farmers tho un
disputed champions of the second scr
ies. The first series ended in a tie
between tho Liberties and Allies, but
as tho Llbcrtys withdrew from tho
leaguo during the second scries, the
Allies will clash with tho Farmers for
tho league championship in a special
two out of three gamo series begin
nlng next Sunday.

just as fresh as ever.

K. C. Ahana, County Treasurer, paid
