NO BREAKWATER MEANS
Board of Trade Make Detailed Report to Engineer
Slattery Hilo Bay Deepest Harbor and Largest
Area of Anchorage in Territory Loss Sustained
By Absence of Hilo Breakwater.
In response lo the inquiry made
by Lieut. J. K. Slattery, Corps of
Engineers, U. S. Army, who visit
ed Hilo a few wasks ago for the
purpose of preparing the prelimin
ary surveys of the proposed Hilo
Breakwater, the Board of Trade of
Hilo have prepared an elaborate
statement giving an estimate of the
increased cost of shipping and loss
to shippers by reason of the absence
of such breakwater.
All of this information is now in
the hands of Lieut. Slattery at
Honolulu, who has the breakwater
project under consideration and
who is preparing estimates as to
cost of construction of such a pro
tecting wall across Hilo Bay, which
figures and recommendations he
will forward when completed to the
Chief of Engineers, War Depart
ment, for an official report to Con
gress this winter.
In addition to tables showing the
imports and exports, the number,
tonnage and draughts of vessels
arriving and departing for the past
year, a committee of the Board of
Trade also went into the subject of
the area to be comprehended within
such a breakwater. A sketch of the
proposed sea wall, beginning at a
quarter of a mile east of Cocoanut
Island and extending to the whist
ling buoy, accompanied the report
which has been forwarded to Lieut.
Slattery. The Board recommend
that the breakwater be so construct
ed as to include the so-called
"pocket" or deep depression with
in the bay, which would almost
double the available anchorage of
the harbor. It is also claimed that
by including the deep "pocket"
within the scope of the breakwater,
the shipping would be protected
from the winds and high seas
which come from the north.
It is understood that Lieut. Slat
tery approves of the construction
along the lines indicated. By the
adoption of wider harbor scheme,
it is maintained the breakwater can
be built practically in shallow water
and at a nominal cost.
The report of the Board of Trade
in substance, is as follows:
Vessels arriving in the port of
Hilo are compelled to stay here
three days to three weeks, about
half of which time is lost on ac
count of rough weather. This time
could be saved if we had proper
protection from rough seas, which
would result from the construction
of a breakwater.
The port of Hilo is the largest
port in the Territory of available
anchorage and deep enough to
accommodate the largest ship afloat
and can be entered either by night
or day. Upon the completion of
the Panama Canal, Hilo will be a
port of call and probably a coaling
station for the various steamers
bound to and from the Canal
As to the future possibilities of
this port in the event of the con
struction of a breakwater, we beg
to .say that in the table .submitted
to you we have figured only on the
sugar actually shipped from here
during the year 1904, whereas with
the completion of the breakwater
and a railroad running north,
which would naturally follow, we
could increase the outgoing sugar
from 68,000 tons to fully 150,000
tons, basing this upon the follow
ing: Upon the completion of the Ko
hala Ditch, now under construc
tion, the Kohala District will in
crease their annual yield of sugar
from their present output of 10,000
tons to ,10,000 tons, and the yield
of the llamakua District will be
increased from their present output
ui iuuu luin iu yj,uuu u.iH'j un
reason of larger acreage under culti
vation, till 01 which will probably
be shipped through Hilo instead of
being sent direct.
In our communication to you
dated June 22nd of this year, this
Board failed to include the yield of
sugar for the Kau District. This
amounts to 18,000 tons and if ship
ped through this port would bring
our outgoing sugar up to 168,006
At present we are shipping about
60,000 bunches of bananas every
year, whereas hid we proper protec
tion from the rough weather,
wharves would be built and steam
ers would call at Hilo permitting us
to raise and ship a very much larger
Since you have left Hilo we have
'ascertained that there is plenty of
rock available in the near vicinity
to build the breakwater. About
one mile distant from town there is
a flow of lava from five to twenty
feet in depth covering an area of
about 200 acres. The Hilo Rail
road have tracks running almost to
this flow and it is described as be
ing in three layers, the first layer
being soft, the second layer being
sufficiently hard to be hammer
dressed, and the third layer being
as hard as flint,
The enclosed estimate of loss to
shipping and shippers is based on
the actual number of vessels enter
ing and the actual amount of incom
ing and outgoing freight for the
year 1904, and is, to our minds, a
very conservative one. We have
not based our figures on any prob
able increase in the future which
would amount to fully 50 per cent.
The proposed breakwater would do
much to increase property values in
Hilo and the surrounding country
and in every way tend to build up
this Island in a commercial sense.
Touching on the item of $30,000
loss to plantations, plantation land
ings, property and lumber yards
adjacent to the beach, is a very con
servative estimate inasmuch as it
includes loss to plantations by not
being able to rapidly receive incom
ing freight and ship outgoing sugar,
damage done to plantation landings,
damages to property, lumber yards,
etc., by reason ofhigh seas.

Going into the question of tlie
probable increase in shipping which
will follow from the construction of
a .safe breakwater and the proposed
Kohala and Hilo Railroad, the
Hoard give detailed answers to each
'of the inquiries propounded
I lieutenant Slattery, as follows:
j "Would such a railroad be of any
particular advantage to these plan-
tntious?" Yes, for the following
reasons: 1st All the plantations
outside of Ililo bay have to ship
their sugar and receive their sup
plies at rocky landings on the wind-
ward side of the island where the
sea is often so rough that loading
and unloading is impossible for sev
eral days or a week, thus delnying
the ships that may be loading 111
Hilo bay. 2nd This condition
leads to great uncertainty of ship
ments with consequent uncertainty
as to the time of marketing. 3rd
The plantations are put to the cost
of maintaining the landings, nml of
warehousing the sugar until it can
be shipped. 4th The railway can
handle the sugar cheaper than does
the steamship company.
"Would it cause these planta
tions to ship a greater amount of
their product through Hilo than
they now do?" The construction
of the Kohala and Hilo railway will
not nfiect the shipment of sugar
from those plantations which now
ship through Hilo, for the reason
that their entire product is now
shipped through this port. It
would, however, add to the num
ber of plantations so shipping. At
present all the plantations lying be
tween Hakalau, on the north, and
Olaa and Puna, ou the south, ship
through Hilo. With the comple
tion of the railroad there would be
added to these all those plantations
and mills lying between Haktilau
and Kohala, with the possibility
that those in Kohala might also
ship some of their product through
Hilo instead of sending it direct.
The rate per ton on sugar and mer
chandise from and to those planta
tions now shipping through Hilo
by the local steamship company, is
$1.60 per ton.
"Could the plantations ship their
sugar to Hilo as cheaply by such a
railroad, as they now do by sea?"
We cannot say whether the rate
would be any less by railroad than
by sea from those plantations now
shipping through Hilo, but the rate
from those plantations north of Ha
kalau, which send their product
through Honolulu, would be very
much cheaper if sent through Hilo
by rail. The present rate by
steamer to Honolulu ranges from
$2.50 to $3.10 per ton, while the
rate by rail to Hilo would be from
$1.50 to $2.25 per ton.
