A Big Celebration
Sunday at Eleele
Work on the Nawlllwili breakwater
will bo speeded up within tho next
few days, as some changes In re
gard to quarrying the rock havu
been completed and these changes
will facilitate work In the quarry.
Very little laying of rock In thci
breakwater has been done In the
past month owing to the fact that
the changes In the quarry required
most of the force and equipment.
To enlarge the quarry It was lie
cessary to remove a large amount
of waste rock and earth to uncov
er rock suitable for breakwater pur
poses. It must be remembered that
all stones on tho scusldp of the
breakwater above tho low water
mark must weigh eight tons or more
and as a rock of this slzo is needed
for every foot of breakwater con
structed It can be seen that a largo
number of eight ton rocks must be
quarried to carry on the work.
Removing this waste earth and
rock was rather a large undertaking
on the part of the breakwater force.
Two hoisting engines wore used
in this work. Ono was placed at
the foot of the slope and tho other
at the top. Tho lower engine was
on the Koloa side of the slope while
the upper was on the Lihuo side.
A large scraper was then hsed to
scrape across the face of the slope.
Tho principle Is the same as used
In steam plow work on the planta
tions. The steam shoved will then
follow the scraper and will com
plete the clearing of tho face of the
rock after which the cranes will
bo used to remove and load the
A portion of the face has now
been cleared for tho crane and the
attain shovel will go ahead clear
ing more space. When tho cranes
have worked all the way across
tho face of tho quarry tho process
will be repeated,.
Work' on removing the rock from
the new portion of the quarry will
begin today. A large amount of good
rock has been found In this part
of the quarry, but owing to the
fact that it was necessary to uncover
it, has slowed down tho work on
tl)o breakwater a bit. About four
hundrejl feet of breakwater has been
completed to date.

LIZZY TRUCK GETS
SQUEEZED AT KEALIA
K. Shlrakl of Anahola, oporating
Ford truck No. 40782, went amiss
in his calculation on the Kealla
bill last Friday morning, and, as a
result sustained two broken wheels,
a cracked radiator, two smashed
headlights and other injuries to his
truck which will cost him .a rather'
high sum to repair.
Shlrakl was going toward Ana
hola and tried to pass a Morelaud
truck belonging to the Hawaiian
Canneries company, going up hill
in the same direction. A Denby
truck, loaded with pineapples, was
coming down the hill, but Shlrakl
miscalculated and failed to make
the necessary distance. The driver
of the Denby Jammed his brakes
and tho Moreland also stopped, but
the accident could not bo avoided,
the Ford truck being struck by both
the Mbreland and the Denby at thci
The Moreland was undamaged, but
the Denby had its tool box and run
ning board smashed. The driver of
the Ford agreed to .pay for all dam
ages. BOYS AT CAMP RICE

The scientific party that has been
exploring tho Na Pall side of Kauai,
returned Wednesday afternoon af
ter a most Interesting trip spent In
the many valleys on tho lesser
known side of Kauai.
Much Interesting Information was
gathered by tho party, In regard
to the former dwellers of Nualolo
and Kalalau. According to Prof.
Gregory these valleys show tho fin
est typo of terracing for agriculture
In the Hawaiian Islands. The Irri
gation system used In those terrac
es In which taro evidently was
grown displayed great engineering
skill on tho part of tho early Ha
wallans who lived there.
According to ancient Hawaiian
stories these people were the only
ones In thci Hawaiian Islands who
were not conquered by Kamehamoha
tho Great, anil tho story goes that
Kamehameha spent a great deal of
time nnd men trying to subdue them.
But duo to the Impregnable posi
tion of their valleys that could be
held by a handful of men, he was
finally forced to give up the attempt.
The entrances to tho valleys from
the sea and land were up ladders
or on narrow trails and It was easy
for the dwellers to repel any at
tacks by outside for.ces.
One of the most Interesting dis
coveries was that of a prow of an.
outrigger canoe in ono of tho caves
high up on the cliff, that was brought
down after somo rather precarious
cliff scaling by Ronald Von Holt
and Lindsay Fayo. In tho prow of
the canoe were three skulls that on
first examination appeared, to Prof.
Gregory to belorg to some race
other than the Hawaiian, probably
some race that biionged moro in
the south seas. This Idea Is only
a conjecture on his part and he will
not be able to give a final decision
until ho has studied tho skulls more
fully. Tho sk'ulls are much smaller
than tjie typical Hawaiian skull and
unless it is proved that they are
skulls of children, they may give
some interesting light on the mys
tery of the origin of the Hawaiian
DR. ELWOOD MEAD NOT

Dr. Elwood Mead, of the University
of California, who is acting in the
advisory capacity to the Hawaiian
Homes Commission, and who was

will not be able to make the propos

ceived by H. D. Wishafd, President
of tho Kauai Chamber of Commerce
last Tuesday from Geo. P. Cooke,
secretary of tho homes commission.

"I beg to acknowledge receipt of
your very kind letter Inviting Dr.
Mead to Kauai. He would deeply
approc'atc such a visit, but owing
io th shorti'es'J of his visit will be
unable to givo tho time to this visit
to the island of Kauai.
"Ho appreciates your very kind
invitation and desires me to thank
you on his behalf and to state that
ho he regrets ho will not be able
to como to Kauai."

A spectacular raid on a do luxo
moonshlning plant was made by fed
eral prohibition enforcement officers
In the Hanalel district last Wednes
day and one Yaroku Kamekawa, a
Japanese was arrested and, fined
$200 by Judge Achl.
The plant was ono of .ho best
equipped that the officers have run
across In quite awhile In their raids
arounds the Islands. The still was
a huge aftnli and there was ercugh
nash on hand in manufacture about
one hundred gallons of oko. There
was also twenty flvo gallons on
hand which was dcstroycl,
One .of t'n efficient features of
the still was a cablewav r.cross the
valley about 1000 foot loi'g tm. was
wed to brln.; in II root from tho
mountains to tho still. The ti root
'would be leathered and tied in
bunches and lot down to the still by
means of hooks. One of tha bad fea
tures of the Mill was th.it It was
made entirely of galvanised Iron.
It took over two hours and a half
hiking up the Hanalel valley by tho
officers to reach the plant. The
at 111 was destroyed and a sample
of the okolehao was brought down
as evidence. Kamekawa was
brought before Judgo Achl and
plead, guilty and was fined $200.

possession which they found while
looking for contraband liquor.
