INTERESTING RAINFALL DATA
The Annual Summary of the Wea
ther Bureau for Hawaii hat Just been
Issued and furnishes some very Inter
esting Information for even the gen
The records have been kept long
enough running In many cases over
15 or 20 years; and have been widely
enough extended to furnlBh data for
averages and deductions of much value.
Kauai has 63 stations, where regular
records have been kept for many
years. A large proportion of these
stations are in the mountains, or
other wilderness places, where the
conditions are more or less abnormal
so that we have more general and
better distributed data perhaps than
anv other Island.
The following are some of our lar
gest rainfalls for the year 1920:
Waialeale elev. 5075 649 In.
Hanapepe Mauka, 2080 256"
Hanalei Mauka 625 247"
Kalihiwal Mauka 650 243 "
Walniha Intake 700 187 "
North Wailua 650 182"
Summit camp, Power line 1900 180 "
Kauai Far Ahead
Kauai far outruns the other Islands
in rainfall. The Waialeale section
has an average of 500 inches, and the
Kablll section 250, and the whole cen
ter of the Island shows from 250 up.
The only other rainfall approaching
this is that of a small area en the
summit of West Maul with 250 inches.
The far-famed Hilo rainfall Is 180 in
ches back of Onomea, and 130 at Olaa,
Other Islands Not In It
The Koolau mountains of Oahu, back
of Wahiawa, have a rainfall of 180
Inches, while back of Honolulu the
best they can do is 125. Keanae on
Maui, another wet place with a rep
utation, has 175 inches. The Wai-
manu region on Hawaii, generally
supposed to be very wet, has only
It is no wonder that Kauai Is the
'best watered Island of the group, and
that It has the only rivers."
Diagram Maps Tell the Tale
These and many more rainfall rec
ords, are put into graphic pictorial
form in a series of diagram maps on
which are traced lines, of equal rain
fall. These maps contain some em
A Current Misconception
It Is currently supposed that the
windward side of the Island, exposed
to the Trade winds, gets the rainfall
while the other side goes dry. This
it seems is a mistake. These maps
show that the lines of equal rainfall
pretty well encircle the Island on the
basis of elevation rather than wind
ward location. The circles may be
tilted a little in some cases, lower on
the windward side, but they run right
around without break.
Lines of Equal Rainfall
Eighty inches strikes Haena, Kallhl
wai, Kapaia, the Halt-way Bridge,
Lawai, and runs mauka along the
upper edge of the cane fields at Mak
awell, and so on around to the Napali
Rainfall Increases With the Elevation
On Kauai, at any rate, the rain-fall
Increases rapidly up to our highest
elevation 5,000 feet. Whether it
v.ould still continue to increase beyond
that limit Is a question; probably not
One section of upper Mauna Kea has
only 10 Inches.
Lines of Equal Temperature
In much the same way the temper
ature lines follow round the Island,
being tilted less however than the
rainfall curves. The 73 degree line
(average) keeps within easy distance
of the sea-shore the whole way except
back of Kekaha where it retreats
Below that there are short broken
bits of curve that run a little way for
short sections and then disappear.

5. That at the preseut time the
shipment of freight from Kapaa, Kealia

supplies and other Ingoing freight for
the district which will be served by

railroad will greatly facilitate ship
ments of both Ingoing and outgoing
freight in said district;
6. That, by reason of the facts In
the foregoing petition, petitioner
