AIRPLANE TAKES SQMERSAULT
IN THE SHALLOW WATER
DEMAND FOR SUGAR IN
STATES IS INCREASING
Lieut. L. D. Weddington of Luke
Field aviation corps and Sergeant
Meyers, mechanic, sustained slight
scratches and norrowly escaped
death about 8:30 o'clock this morn
ing when they made a forced land
ing in the shallow water of Kewalo
basin at the foot of Sheridan street.
The aviators had made a short
flight from Luke Field and had
just turned back to Ford island
when the engine started missing.
As the piano passed over The Pier
point, spectators noticed that it was
coming closer to the ground and
the pilot and mechanic signalled to
workmen on a dredge nearby to
come to their assistance. Lieutenant
Weddington .tried to keep the plane
up until he had reached shore where
he could land on the Ala Moana road
but the engine died, and as the
plane hit the water, the wheels
struc'i a rock and the machine turn
ed a somersault, landing with nose
down and the top wing under water.
NEW DAVIES BLOCK ,
WILL BE COMPLETED
WITHIN SIX WEEKS
According to Louis Mullgardt, ar
chitect of San Francisco in charge
of the new Theo. II. Davies & Co.
building, the structure will be com
pleted in about six weeks. Lack of
window glass has delayed the build
ing nnd not all of the glazing ma
terial is yet on hand.
Some parts of the new building
are already in use by the firm for
storage space. An art fountain is
being installed in the open court of
the building which will add much to
the beauty of the structure. The
mosiao floors are being finished and
practically all the offices are fin
ished in a hard white plaster which
gives added light to the interior.
HERE'S A COMPLIMENT
The Honolulu Star-Bulletin has the
following little bit of a boquet to
throw at us:
A. L. C. Atkinson, deputy attor
ney general, in charge of the col
lection of delinquent taxes, has re
ceived a report from Carlos A.
Long, in charge of the tax collec
tions on Kauai, ' which shows that
of the total $335 delinquent taxes
on Kauai, $278 has been collected,
leaving but $57 in delinquent taxes
to be collected on the Garden Is
land. "If tax assessors from all over
the territory turned in reports like
that," opined Mr. Atkinson this
morning, "there would be little need
for a special deputy attorney gener
al." KAMAIOPILI IS GIVEN
HEARING BEFORE BOARD
Rev. 6. K. Kamalopili of the Oahu
Evangelical association, who has
been refused admission to the leper
settlement at Kalaupapa, owing to
the fact that on the occasion of a
religious meeting he sold stock in
a local promotion company to the
inmates at Molokal, will be given
a hearing before the board of health
on August 10, it was announced by
Dr. F. E. Trotter yesterday.

retary of the Hawaiian Pine Pack

IAO VALLEY NEEDLE TO
BE MADE ACCESSIBLE BY
NEW ROAD; BIDS ASKED
Approval has been given to the
plans for the lao Valley road by the
Department of Public Works and ten
ders for the work are being adver
tised to be opened at the August
meeting of the Board of Supervisors.
County Engineer Low went to Hono
lulu last week and went over the
plans with Superintendent of Pub
lic Works Lyman H. Higelow. Notice
of approval of the plans followed his
return. There is now nothing ,to halt
the important improvement for even
if bids should not be forthcoming or
within the appropriation the county
can, under the law, perform the
work for itself.
Ever since the lao Valley flood of
January 1916, for nearly six years,
one of Maul's greatest scenic assets
has been difficult of access. Several
efforts for the rebuilding of the road
were made, an appropriation going
through the legislature which was
permitted to lapse and at length an
other appropriation in the loan fund
which would also have lapsed but
for the efforts of a committee of the
Maui Chamber of Commerce which
placed the bonds. Since then the
committee has been insistent that the
funds be used speedily and has at
tained its desired result in the call
ing for bids.
With the road and bridge the view
of the Needle is made accessible to
both residents and sightseers and
there is brought close to Waiiluku
one of the best picnicking grounds
that can be found in all the Islands.

Mr. Rickard and several of those

to the summit of the mountain be
fore. They report having enjoyed
the experience very much and to
have obtained a wonderful view from
the highest io'nt.
Through what was evidently an ac
cident, as far as can be learned two
small Japanese children, one a boy
3 1-2 years and the other a girl, aged
6 years, were drowned in the Waio
hi ma drainage canal on the after
noon of July 24. The children were
