Kxtending the road up, this flow, which interposes no serious ob
stacles in the way of grade or toad material, would require about thirteen
miles of construction to the point called Halealoha, elevation 5000 feet.
Flanking the road on either side are the government lands of Waiakea
and Piihonua, which may be looked upon as farming lands eventually
to be opened up for settlement.
Leaving the flow of 1855 at the aforementioned point, this road would
continue for eight miles, crossing the upper line of the Hilo forest on
Fiiliouiia and Httmutila on the Matiua Kea slopes and opening up the
undeveloped values of the Hilo and Hamakua uplands, with eventual
connection to Waiamea distance only forty miles, finally reaching Ka-
laeeha, on kahoe, elevation 6,600 feet, another government land with
lease about to expire.
From Kalaeha, a wagon road now encircles the base of Mauna Kea to
Waimea and could be followed for twelve miles to near the base of the
hill called Pu Keekee, one of the chain of hills near the common mauka
angle of the Hamakua and the South Kohala districts.
From Puu Keekee, the connection could be made with the present
Waimea-Kona Road below the Keamoku sheep station on the South
Kohala-North Kona boundry, distance only fourteen miles from Wai
mea and a distance of twenty-four miles from Kailua and thirty-eight
miles from Kcalakeakua.
This route is through a rich country, unbroken by irregularities or
obstacles, of a grade not exceeding 6 and lastly and what is of most
vital importance, being the shortest distance pver the finest lands of this

Transport Makes Presence Knnmi
The naval transport Solace made
her presence in the neighborhood
of Honolulu known last week by
means of wireless telegraphy. At
about half past three the Honolulu
wireless station was surprised to
I find its communication with other
islands interrupted by outside waves.
These proved to be a message stat
ing that the U. S. S. Solace was at
that time about 140 miles west of
the islands. The message gave
the latitude and longitude of the
vessel. Several other signals were
received from the transport but as
the instruments at the Honolulu
station are so much more delicately
adjusted than those on the Solace
no replies could be sent. At 5:50
p. in. the Solace reported as follows:
"Island of Kauai sighted but no
reply to our signals." Another
message arrived in the midst of an
other from one of the islands but
nothing was obtained from the
