Availing tnemselves ot a lucid In
terval in the weather, which threaten
ed not to last long, the Heleloas made
Olokele Canyon Saturday Feb. 19th.
There were three car Joads ot them,
15 or 16 all told, each one with his
little package of Individual lunch, and
an eager expectancy for whatever was
It had rained frcm the Southwest
the night before and' the road up
through the plantation was . so wet
and slippery tn places that It was
touch and go as to whether they could
make it; but with some skidding they
Because of the damage done by the
recent storms It was no longer possi
ble to motor in to Tunnel 12, as form'
erly, so they left their cars at the
entrance to the Canyon and hiked in,
a distance of two miles or so. This
Is not without its compensations. You
have a chance to appreciate and enjoy
the wonderful scenery without the
distracting tears that your car is go
ing over the edge at any moment.
As they rounded the last turn go
ing in .to Tunnel 12 an impressive
surprlae awaited them in the magnif
icent waterfall resulting from turning
the water out of the Ditch so that it
rushed down the bank and over Sul
cide Cliff, a drop of some 300 feet.
This was an unusual favor not granted
to most visitors: they flattered them
selves that it was a special Just for
them. Pela paha!
The Dltchman being absent at
work they took possession of his prem
ises, especially his kitchen, and pro
ceeded to make coffee, boll rice, etc.
The lunch however was served under
the great overarching kukul trees In
full view of the wonderful panorama
before them. However, Just then, hot
coffee and sandwiches appealed to
them more than wonderful panoramas,
Following lunch the more ambiti
ous hikers set out for the Intake
some 4 or 5 miles away, and In de
tachments, according to their speed,
they made it in an hour and a half
or two hours. It is only right to say
that the gentler sex more than held
their own in this strenuous pull.
They saw many evidences of the
great damage done by the storms. In
some places hundreds, or perhaps
thousands of tons of rock and debris
had avalanched down the mountain
side Into and across the ditch, sweep
ing everything before it
In many places the trail had been
tilled up or avalanched away, more or
less, and in others great boulders had
fallen upon It with such force as to
punch great holes In it
And even as the writer passed, a
great rock came hurtling down from
the heights above and struck with a
crash, only a few feet away. The
Intake headates, though set In a
protected recessed porch, had been
struck and one ot the wheels broken,
and one of the screw rods bent out
It proved, in spite of the threat of
rain, an ideal day for the outing, the
rapid alternations ot brilliant sunshine
and shadow giving wonderful high
lights against chiaroscuro shades, with
deep purple distances.
All agreed that it was a wonderful
experience, on the whole, the best yet,
and they wouldn't have missed It for
anything, though some of them were
afraid they wouldn't be able to stir
the next day.

"I thank you for your kind letter of
December 1 and was probably more
surprised than anyone else when
found myself featured In one of the

old friends In Honolulu to. ascertain
the source of this information and to
say to my friends, that even if such
an offer did come to me, for business
reasons, I could not consider it. Tour
