Lydgate In Plan
To Save Park Site
J. M. Lydgate, chairman of the
Kauai Chambor of Commerce public
parks committee, presented tho pro
position of an addition to the Folia
hu park to the chamber at Its meet
ing last Thursday night that met
with hearty approval of that body
and that got unanimous backing.
The proposition, which is of inter
est to every Kauai resident, is ful
ly explained In the following letter
which Mr. Lydgate has written:
TO HIS EXCELLENCY W. R. FAR-
RINGTON. Governor of lluwuil.
and HON. C. T. BAILEY, Com
missioner of Public Lands, Hono
lulu. T. II.
The Kauai Chamber of Commerce
hereby urgently requests that that
certain portion of the land of Wal
lua, known as the Puukl Ridge, and
lying between the Wailua river on
the south, and the lot lands on the
north, as shown in the sketch map
herewith, be set aside by executive
order, for public park purposes, and
be added to the existing Polluhu
And the said Chamber of Com
merce begs to set forth the follow
ing considerations in justification
of the same, to-wit:
1. The tract in question Is of lit
tle or no value for agricultural pur
poses, being an absolutely barren
ridge, entirely without wuter, prnc-
tlcaly beyond the means of obtain
ing the same, as it Is un isolated is
land ridge far above the water level.
2. It is contiguous to and a con
tinuation of the Poliuhu ridge mau
ka, which has been set aside as the
Poliahu park, and as a part of which
it should have been included.
3. It lies between, and contiguous
to the lurge population areas of the
future, Kapa on the north, Lihue
on the south, und the homestead re
gion at the back.
4. The addition of this region to
the Poliahu park will give to the
same a very needed available water
frontage, for boating, aquatic sports,
etc. While the Poliahu park does
border on the river for a short dis
tance, the Litiiks of the same nro so
precipitous that they are not avail
able as i;vjr frontage.
5. Included In this region are two
places of great historical Interest
and antiquarian importance, viz.: tfte
ancient royal Heiau of Kalaeonmna
with Its large and famous monolith
sacrificiul stone, and the equally
famous Birth stone of Holohoioku.
These a "? places of unique ln'.eie-.t
in HawttKm history, and should by
ail means be carefully preserved,
and thrown open to tho public. If
thoy are included in a public pnrk
area this can be readily done, oth
erwlse they will probably be broken
up and used for road macadam or
6. The late governor, C. J. McCar
thy, shortly before his withdrawal
from office, and on the ground, re
commended that this ridge should
by all means be included in the
Poliahu park, and it was his inten
tion to set it aside for this pur
pose, but the lack of the necessary
survey description, and the press of
other matters prevented.
For the above reasons, and with
an eye especially to future public
needs, we respectfully petition that
this region be set aside for tho pur
poses set forth.

Prof. F. G. Krauss, professor of
agronomy at the University of Ha
waii, made his annual agricultural
extension tour of Kauai during the
past week. While on the Garden Is
land he lectured to several groups
of homestaaders and plantation men,
and also did some original Investi
gating into the new banana enter
prises springing up on this island.
Prof. Krauss arrived a week ago
Tuesday morning. Ho npent tho first
day visiting the various Wailua
homesteads, giving technical agri
cultural udvice and making recom
mendations for the improvement of
crops. He expressed gratification nt
the fact that several of tho home
steaders are raising small areas of
diversified crops, are putting in gar
dens and are raising chickens and
keeping cows. All these help to keep
down the coBt of living and Prof.
Krauss feels that they nre highly
Important at this time.
Reccomends Diversified Crops.
Mr. Krauss says that some of the
best amateur goat raising that he
has yet observed is being practic
ed on some of the homesteads. This
little animal, he points out, can be
kept on a very small space, requires
comparatively little feed and now
can be purchased at very reasonable
prices. He believes that more home
steaders can well afford to keep
milking goats and has recommended
this to a number of farmers.
Tuesday night Prof. Krauss spoke
to the Wailua Homestead Associa
tion members and others at Olohena
school. He told them of his experi
ences as a homesteader at Haiku,
Maui. After listening to his account
of how a number of "green" farm
ers tackled the Haiku proposition,
how they had to provide their own
roads and even drinking water, how
there was not even a school in which
they could educate their children,
many of the Wailua homesteaders
befan to feel that they did not have
such a bad row to hoe after all,
that others had faced harder propo
sitions and won and that they could
do as well or better on Kauat.
Eats 'n Everything.
The most Interesting part of Mr.
Krauss' meeting was the personal
discussions that followed the main
talk. He invited the farmers to ask
questions and they certainly did so
"How do you kill mealy bugs on
pea trees" "How would you find
out what fertilizer to put on your
cane and other crops?" "What crops
can be raised at Wailua to success
fully intercrop with cane?" "How
do you cure a cow with a caked ud
der?" "What is the best remedy for
chicken sorehead, for lice, and
These were a few of the ques
tions asked. All the homesteaders
are well satisfied with tho meeting.
They served a delicious little buf-
fet supper after the meeting and a
f most enjoyable social hour follow-

On Wednesday Prof. Krauss in
spected the' new irrigation projects,
the dairy, the banana fields, the
pigeon peus and the cane at Kllau-
ea. He was very much Impressed
with tho new orchard system irri
gation project that is installed at
that place. He expressed the opinion
that the system would In a very
short time be found in Hawaiian
fields now irrigated by the old slow
er system and pointed out its possi
bilities in irrigating other crops.
Talks at Kilauea.
Wednesday evening Mr. Krauss
spoke to about 60 employees of the
Klluuea sugar plantation. The meet
ing was held in the new commun
ity house. Mr. Krauss wus asked to
talk on "Chickens." He took up the
raising of the birds from A to Z.
He gave some very definite rules
for feeding little chicks, laying hens
and all types of fowls. He told how
to select a laying hen, how to com
bat various poultry diseases and
pests, what twpe of fowls to mate,
etc. It was a practical talk from a
practicul man and was greatly en
joyed. It is a pretty sure thing that
there will be some better poultry
raising at Kilauea as a result.
Pineapples and Bananas.
On Thursday, Mr. Krauss accom
panied Walter McBryde over the var
ious fields of the Kauai Fruit &
Land Co. in the afternoon he spoke
to a group of pineapple growers in
Mr. McBryde's community house In
Kukuiolono park. Practical problems
of pineapple growing were discuss
ed. Mr. Krauss told how they are
now raising better "pines" in the
second und third cycle than In the
first at Haiku by means of using
pigeon peas as an Intercrop and
plowing under the'' green manure.

Thursday evening and Friday morn
ing Prof. Krauss spent with Mr.
ltrodle and his associates at Klcele
looking over the new banana enter
prises springing up there. Prof.
Krauss feels that the banana in
dustry is destined' to be Hawaii's
third industry in size and import
ance. He believes that the crop is
ideally adapted to many of our con
ditions and that it can be satisfac
torily and profitably raised on many
small farms. z
