THE GARDEN ISLAND, TUESDAY, FEB. 22, 1921
of Nawiliwili Harbor
From the U. 8. Engineer's re
port, on improvement of Rivers
and Harbors of Hawaii the follow
ing information is collated in
regard to the Nawiliwili Harbor.
The Harbor is somewhat pro
tected by a high rocky bank on
the North, and a high mountain
on the South, but in strong Trades
a hevy sea rolls in. The Bay
is divided into an inner and outer
harbor by a natural reef extending
from" the South shore about two
thirds of the way acroHs the har
bor. X The outer harbor is deep ;
the Inner is shallowed by many
The Harbor plans provide for a
rubble mound breakwater 2450
feet in length, along the aforesaid
reef; for an entrance channel 35
feet deep, 400 feet wide, and 2400
feet Jong. The estimate of cost
made; in 1911 was $1,086,000, cost
of maintenance 910,000 a year.
These estimates are much too low
for present prices.
' The Breakwater will be built
first,' at least in greater part, and
the dredging out of the harbor
within, and the channel will fol
low. The business dme by the pres
ent Nawiliwili landing is :
1918, freight 8,168 tons, vaul
$1,028,100, passengers 12,439.
1919, freight 9,536 tons, value
11,600,738, passengers 18,987.
The Nawiliwili project was
adopted by the River and Harbor

In Kukulolono Park
- "The garden spot of the Garden

red acre tract on Kauai where nature
and the hand of man combined have
made grow a garden ot exquisite
"Thirteen years ago this tract was
barren hiilsde. Today it is a series
of groves and lawns, pretty little Jap
anese gardens, shaded walks, and fern
and flowered terraces." A
"Waiter McBryde, a nature lover
and owner of the land which is now
the park, has brought about this trans
formation." "After spending years xl painstak

the Park, he has deeded it to trustees
In trust for the public, and successful
plans are being perfected for its per

"The first view is of a wide expanse
ot beautiful grassy terraces, banked
on either s.ae with windbreaks ot
man spocles of tree foliage. Wan
dering about through the paths, two
Japanese gardens ' which nestle In
little dells are seen. Here minature
streams and lakes are bridged in true
Japanese rotunda bridge style."
"Flowers ot every hue and descrip
tion are arranged in neat plots while
a large Japanese monument, a tribute
to the work of Mr. McBryde, presented
by Japanese residents of Kauai, is
near the Japanese -gardens."
Park is a Plateau
"Wandering toward the sea, the
visitor realizes that he is standing on
a miniature plateau with a full com
mand of the coast line for miles and

seen from almost any point In the
park which commands a view of the

which is found at the end of the park
facing the sea, visitors can see on one
side of leeward Kauai, the broad
sweep of plantation fields, from Koloa
beneath the rugged hills that, hide

Mountain View Excellent
"The other livt facing the mount

scenic grandeur. The vista merges
into the hills, cut here and. there by
erosion, and dotted with silver lines
which are - the , mountain streams
tumbling on their way to the sea."
'.'Farther up the hills looms the
great dark' walls of Waialeale, the cen

into the mountain's interior."
FUEL ALCOHOL FOR HAWAII
We have long known that we were
steadily exhausting . our stored up
supply of gasoline and . other petro
leum fuel products, and intelligent
people have been Increasingly anxious
about what we would do when it was
We have heard from time to time of
the possibilities of fuel alcohol, but
it hasn't seemed to materialise as a
practjeal product for daily use, just
why we have never known.
R. Ronton Hind has recently pub
lished a very illuminating article In
the "Planters News" ot Manila which
puts the whole matter of fuel alcohol
so clearly that we venture to synop
slze it. . -
It has long been recognized that
the waste molasses of our sugar fac
tories must contain large and valuable
possibilities in the line of fuel alcohol.
The cost of production, however, and
some unsolved difficulties in its use,
have prevented Its adoption to any
considerable extent. As long as
gasoline was cheap it held the field
against alcohol. Another difficulty
has been that no fuel alcohol could be
used for any length of time without
disastrous results to the cylinder
walls, valves, and valve seats.- In the
course of combustion acetic acid and
other corrosive products are developed
and these attack metal with a deter
mination and energy that are ruinous.
This and other difficulties have at
length been overcome by J. P. Foster,
of the Maul Agricultural Co. mainly
by the addition of pyridine, a strong
alkaline base, which In Its explosion
produces ammonia which neutralizes
the corrosive acids that would other
wise eat up the engine. He also adds
ether as a means ot increasing the
volatility of alcohol so that it will
burn more readily and can be used in
the carburetors now in use in the or
dinary automobile engines.
The formula for this denatured
alcohol under the Foster process is as
follows: To each 100 gallons of al
cohol add 6 gallons of sulphuric ether,
2 gallons of kerosene and one-gallon
There can be no question of the
efficiency of this fuel alcohol. Care
ful tests made on Maui show a gain
of per cent over distillate, and
with no troublesome carbon deposit
In the cylinders.
There are several practical advan
tages which fuel alcohol will have
over gasoline. The supply will be
Inexhaustible since the raw material
is being created every day all about
us. It is more readily, and more
safely stored, with less exacting in
surance regulations. It mixes readily
with water, and continues to operate
even when diluted to a 60 per cent
solution. "Water in the gasoline'
won't be a menace. - It generates
less heat of combustion, so that It is
easier to keep things cool. Cylinder
lubrication is made easier, and'earbon
deposits are eliminated. And perhaps
most significant of all .burned in an
ordinary gasoline engine it will de
velop from 10 to 20 per cent more
power than gasoline does in the same
It is estimated on the basis of con
servative figures that here in Hawaii
we have a potential annual capacity
of about 8 million gallons of such
alcohol fuel from our waste molasses.
When the gasoline wells of the earth
run dry, "we should, worry." -.

IK H. Bowuu of the Planters'
Welfare Bureau made a state
ment to the Women-oi'-all-races
meeting at the Mokihanu Hall,
lust Wednesday which was listen
ed to with much interest and gave
much valuable iuformatiou.
Ue explaiaed that the Welfare
work being done in connection
with the various plantations was
distinctively non-religious, and
was not even philanthropic pri
marily, in intent and purpose. It
was frankly cood business. It
was undertaken' with the hope
that it would be a paying propo
sition to minister to the well-
being of the working population
on the plantation. Better houses,
better sanitation, more facilities
for recreation, athletics, games,
moving pictures, etc, it was hoped
would mean more contented, more
reliable and more efficient labor.
And the outcome, thus far, abun
dantly justifies this expectation.
It has beeu a successful business
venture, which gives us the very
best assurance of its permanence
One of the fundamental factors
in the success of the Welfare en
terprises on any plantation, is the
cooperation of the plantation
staff. It is, of course, all-important
that the manager should be
heartily in sympathy and cooper
ate throughout. But this is not
enough; every luna, or skilled
employee must also be in accord
must believe in Welfare Work,
aud show his faith by his works.
The whole plantation should, be a
unit in the endeavor to make it
interesting and comfortable and
enjoyable for the plantation peo
ple. We are finding out on the plan
tations, what others have found
out before us, that the children;
especially the . . children in the
schools, are our best and most
promising field. They caU learn
easily, they are open to conviction,
they take readily to new ideas',
they are comparatively free from
prejudices, and they are massed
together in school so that you can
easily get at them. Money spent
on the children is going to 'bring
in the best returns, not today or
tomorrow, perhaps, but in the

Diseases of Children and
Their Effects in
It is rare indeed to find a child whose vertebral column is
perfectly normal. The constant activity of children, running,
jumping and tumbling, the postures in which they sit in school
and a hundred other causes too numerous to mention tend to
produce subluxations of the vertebrae and impinge the nerves
leading to important organs of the body. This being true, and
it has been repeatedly proved not only by palpitation but in the
dissecting room, the after-effects of childhood diseases can be
accounted for as follows:
; Nerves impinged, or pinched, at the place where they leave
the Bpinal column cannot carry an adequate supply of energy
to the organs to which they lead, resulting in these organs be
coming weakened aud susceptible to disease, or, if the imping
ment be Bevere, there may be immediate failure of the organ to
The child contracts tousilitis, for instance, through a sub
luxation of the second or third cervical vertebrae. The tonsils
become enlarged and ulcerated ; toxins, or poisons, are absorbed
into the blood stream, are carried to all parts of the body and
act upon those organs which have become weakened.
The tonsilitis is soon "cured" because the disease runs its
course ordinarily in a few days, but the subluxation causing it
has not been removed. The tonsils remain weak and liable to
a second or third infection.
To depend upon nature is entirely too uncertain; the latter
course is by far the most to be desired, since there is no doubt
as to the results.
I feel that it is the duty ot every Chiropractor to explain
to parents the serious consequences which may result from
some apparently unimportant sick spell their children have
had so they may have the youngsters spines examined and all
Children who receive spinal adjustments dttring their sick
ness are extremely fortunate, since not only, the cause of
their trouble permanently removed, but subluxations which
would have caused much suffering later are also corrected.
While Chiropractic spinal adjustments are highly effective in
relieving complications after they have arisen, still it is much
better to correct the subluxations as soon as possible, even
though no disease has manifested itself, for if there has been
sickness there is apt to be trouble at some later time, and an
ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
, Chiropractic is a profession, is a business delivering health
service in the quickest (possible time at the lowest consistent
cost to the customer.
