The last piece of pqulpraent to
f arrlvo for tho Nawlllwlll breakwat
tor waa tho 160-ton crane tbat nan
boon expected for the past month.
This makea two cranes on hand, the
other ono being an 80-ton Industrial
crane. It is not to bo understood
that the two above weights are tho
capacities of the cranes, but aro
tho actual weights of tho cranes
Tho capacity of tho larger ono Is
forty tons with the boom In as near
a vertical position as possible. Tho
capacity with the boom able to awing
completely around with the weight
17 foot from the center of the crane
Is 30 tons. When the swing Is. 60
foot tho capacity Is ton tons. This
crane will bo UBod to place tho rock
In the breakwater while tho smaller
one will bo used to load tho cars
In the quarry.
The smaller crane Is an overseas
veteran, having served with the A.
E. F. In Prance. It waa somo of
the equipment that the government
had on hand at tho close of the
war and waB Bhlpped directly to
Kauai. It was loaded on tho trans
port Dlx in San Francisco complete,
but when It arrived In Honolulu It
was found that thero was not a
crane large enough to handlo it bo
It was necessary to dismantle It on
board the transport.
The larger crane Is tho largest lo
comotive crane that's been brought
to the Hawaiian islands. Ono moro
industrial crane and a steam shovol
will be able to handle 400 yards of
rock and dirt every eight hours,
are expected some time in tho very
near future. No. work will be dono
on the breakwater Itself until the
Bteam shovel arrives. This makes
the laying of the first stone some
where In the near future.
R. L. Garllnghouse has succeed
ed Mr. Morris as local engineer In
charge 01 construction.

BIG GANE FIRE
Owing to dry weather enno fires
seem to havo becomo habitual dur
ing tho last month. Makavell plan
tation 'was tho latest and heaviest
sufferer, 110 ucres being burned off
Tho oxact origin of tho fire Is
unknown but it Is thought that It
was started by a lighted cigarotto
stub that was thrown in tho grass
alongside of tho road. There was a
broeze at the time and In a very
short while tho flames woro sweep
ing over tho field of 90-ton cane.
The fire started about noon in
field six. It was necessary to
call out all tho men on tho plan
tation before tho fire waa finally
put under control. Duo to tho dry
ness of the field no attempt was
mado to' cut a tiro break through
tho cane, but It was cut parallel
to a railroad track that runs thru
Tho heavy columns of smoke
could bo Been for miles on tho west'
sldo of tho Island and it attracted
spectators from all parts of the
Only tho efficient and rapid work
of tho lunas in charge prevented the
fire from burning off more acreage,
as tho wholo field consists of G4ti
acres. It will take from ten to
fifteen days to harvest tho cane
burnt and there are possibilities
that quite a bit of tho cane will be
spoiled, as the problem of getting
that much cane into the mill before
tho juice sours is a big ono. The
McBryde Sugar company Is helping
with cutters, loaders and cars.
A GHOST STORY
Wo have a report from Kealla of
a very interesting story In which
four boys were nearly scared out of
the cause for tho fright being the ap
poarance of two ''ghosts' along side
their wits last Wednesday evening,
the Kealla graveyard that ovenlng
about 9 o'clock. v
According to tho story, this party
of four started to walk to Kealla
their machino being stalled in Ka
paa and left in tho garage for re
pairs. Seeing their predicament, two
enterprising jesters went homo, pull
'ed a couple of bedsheets from their
beds and started for Kealla in their
automobile, taking tho long route
via the Kapaa school, but not until
tho hikora had passed the road lead
lng up to tho school. They reached
tho Kealla bridge, hid their car on
the side of tho road and made their
way up to the graveyard on foot
and waited for their victims to ap
pear. Tho night was pitch dark and tho
"ghosts" stooped down along tho
fence of tho graveyard, their pres
once being first noticed by tho walk
era when thoy wero -only a few
feet from them. One of tho walk'
ers, who bad often talked about his
courage and how bo had no fear of
ghostB, started to uphold his reputa'
tion and called out to tho "ghosts",
"say spirits, you go back to tho
grave where you came from," but
ono of tho white figures who had
been in a crouching position, roso
and Boomed to tower nbovo tho sky
and came slowly toward them. Two
of his companions- lmedlately fled
and the brave ono turned and fled
with tho other two. Tho fourth
membor of tho walking party was
so scared that he could not run and
seeing his path blockod by tho two
"ghosts", rushed for tho tailor of
tho two and was Immensely relieved
to find it only ono of tho boys
he know. Tho other threo bad by
this time broken ull speed records
for sprinting and were already In
Kealla talking about their encounter
with two "ghosts." Even as thoy
wore running tho "courageous" ono
Insisted that tho "ghost" they met
was tho same ono he had met at tho
same placo some weoks ago.
To tho wonderful pluck and pres
ence of mind displayed by his friend
David Crulckshank, the second engi
neer at Makawell, Frank Broland, bu
gar boiler, also of Makawoli, undoub
tedly owes hlB life. Tho men, ac
companied by Charles Hammond, a
boy of fourteon, wero bathing at La
wai beach on Sunday tho 22nd, and
not understanding tho danger, wont
out n llttlo too far. Diving undor a
wave they were caught in tho nndor
tow and Broland was .carried Into
the current which took him further
and further from shore. Crulck
shank, knowing that he was only a
beginner at swimming, Immediately
swam ashoro calling out for ropo.
This fortunately was at hand, Mr.
McBryde having ono always roady
for tho purpose. Crulckshank 'Im
mediately fastened It around hl-m-
self and started out, but soon found
that he could not got on .very well,
so returned and snatched an Inner
tube which one of the children was
wearing and set out again.
By this time, tho boy, Charles
Hammond, who had staid by tho
drowning man until ho could scarce
ly move himself, was coming ashore,
and seeing his exhausted condition
mado tho people on shoro reallzo
what a serious thing was happening
and that Crulckshank, who was only
a poor swimmer himself, was literal
ly taking his llfo in his hands. After
a terrific struggle against tho waves
he was seen to bo getting noarer to
his man, who fortunately kept his
head throughout tho terrlblo strain.
Then came a tense moment when
It was seen that the ropo was too
short, but here, tortunatoly somo
others arrived to join the "picnic par
ty, and James Stackhouse of the
U. S. Engineers, Lihue, took tho end
of tho ropo and wont in far enough
to give Crulckshank enough way to
roach the drowning man. This he
did jUBt In time and even then had
it not been for the tube keeping
them afloat it would havo gono
badly with them, for ono was almost
drowned and tho othor exhausted
Thoy were slowly hauled In under
the guidance of Alexander McBryde
who directed when to haul and whon
to slack, knowledge which meant
that tho men wore not injured, as
they might easily have beenu had
they been pulled through tho waves
by main force.
Both rescuer and rescued sorved
through the late war. Seeing tholr
presence of mind under such torrify-
lng circumstances makes one reallzo
in a way tho spirit which had taken
them through their war experiences
Seon on Monday, Frank Broland
said that though feeling just one
big ache all over, he was otherwise
fine. Ho also said that though ho
had been in many a tight place, both
In Franco and the Balkan campaign,
ho had never been bo nearly gono
Dovld Crulckshank fortunatoly Is
also none the worse for his export
