HEAVY RAINFALL PLAYS
HAVOC IN HAWAII
Landslides on the island belt road,
a washout on the Hawaii Consolidat
ed railway line and an automobile
party stuck in the mud for six hours
on the slopes of the Kohala moun
tains were reported this morning,
following the continuous downpour
of rain for the past 18 hours. Four
inches of rain fell in Hilo Friday
from 8 a. m. until noon.
While the heavy rainfall continu
ed throughout most of the night in
Hilo,. the greatest precipitation was
during the morning. The rain came
down In torrential floods and the
streets were washed in all sections
of the city.
If the rain storm continues there
is fear that the flood of last spring
will be repeated and that mercan
tile establishments on Kamehameha
avenue will suffer considerable dam
age. Extensive damage was caused on
the Kalopa Homestead extension road,
now in course of construction, accord
ing to reports received by Deputy
Sheriff William Rickard.
Water swept along the road course
and the building material was wash
POSTOFFICE INSPECTORS IN MUD
Cow boys came to the rescue last
night of a motor party of postoffice
officials, after it was mired in the
mud yesterday afternoon and evening
for six hours on the lonely road
crossing the Kohala mountains.
One woman, Mrs. Smith, wife of
H. S. Smith, a postoffice inspector,
was in the party which had the un
pleasant experience, but exciting
thrill of rescue.
With the Smiths were F. M. Vailie,
chief clerk of the postal railway mail
service, and John Akoni, driver of
a car from the People's Garage. The
party left Kohala yeBterday morning
for Honokaa, but when a few miles
from the Frank Woods' ranch their
car sunk In the mud and stalled.
All efforts to move the car proved
useless and there was no other traf
fic on the road until late in the af
ternoon. Finally H. C. Austin dis
covered their predicament and sum
moned cowboys to their aid.
With lassoes attached to their sad
dles, the cowboys pulled the car out
of the mud and across a stream that
was running dangerously high.
Afterwards the postoffice party,
without further adventure, succeed
ed in reaching Waimea where it re
mained over night.
We thank the Public for its patronage
during our reduction
