of Public Works Holloway, object
ing to giving his approval to the
proposed change in the mauka line
of Front street was, on motion of
supervisor Fernandez, referred to
tho oupcrvisorB of the district of
Hilo with power to act. James Gibb,
of Hamakua, offered for re-location
of the road a right of way 40 feet
in width through his land in Kai
wiki, Hilo, in exchange for present
road 25 feet in width. As opening
new roads is in the province of the
department of public lands, the
matter was left in the hands of the
Supervisor Fernandez, as a special
committee to obtain facts and figures
on road machinery, reported and
considerable discussion followed on
the question of the road require
ments of the county, character of
machinery needed and where it
The Board completed the work

Out of the general fund, bills amoun

A resolution introduced by Super
visor Desha, and referred to the
finance committee, that on or be
fore July 1, 1906 each road super
visor should execute a good and
sufficient bond and file the same
with the county clerk for approval
of the Board of Supervisors, was
reported on favorably and adopted.
The police committee reported
favorably on claims of the police
department amounting to $2023.35.
It recommended that the demand
contained in the communication
from H. Irwin, which had been
referred to it be referred to the
committee of the whole. This was
a claim for salaries as deputy sher
iff of four individuals in Hamakua.
Appropriation for a police officer
for Pahoehoe, S. Kona was appro
ved, and the salaries of two police
officers in S. Kona were recom
mended cut to $30 each. Report
was adopted. ,
On motion of Supervisor Fernan

At the request of the clerk of the

was authorized to confer with the

ing elections, etc.
Supervisor F. Woods, returned
to me board invarratu us iraa re
ceived from the auditor's office for
last session's mileage, not being en
titled to the same on account of
absence from the meeting.
The Board went into the com
mittee of the whole to consider
various matters, with chairman
Moir in the chair. The communi
cation of the commissioner of pub
lic lands in reference to the Fur
neaux application for land in
the Volcano road reserve, was tak
en up. Shipman disapproved of
of allowing filings in the reserve, as
it has been sent apart for road re
pair and construction porposes and
a motion was passed instructing the
county clerk to advice the land
office and express this as the opinion
of the board.
Geo. H, Williams, sub-land-agent,
was invited to explain what the
land department proposed doing in
the way of offering Mokaoku
park for filing. Mr. Williams ex
plained that permitting filings to
be made would necessitate the open
ing of new streets through the tract
and, also, the widening of the pre
sent ones, work that it would de
volve upon the county to perform.
The communication of Attorney
Irwiu was considered and the
claims of the parties for pay as
deputy sheriff disallowed, Super
visors Desha, Fernandez, Makua
kaue and Moir voting "aye;" and
Supervisors Kalawaa, Shipman nnd
The question of road machinery
was discussed at length and it was
unanimously recognized as most
important. Ferandez thought the
county needed two more road rol
lers and suggested that Hilo dis
trict be provided with a large one,
and the smaller ones in use at pre
sent be transferred. Hamakua needs
a roller badly. Mr. Shipman stated
that Puna needed a roller very
much. Chairman Moir favored
buying machinery from time to
time along some plan to be decided
upon and favored providing the
Hilo quarry with a large crusher
and transferring the Hilo crusher
to some other point. Woods stated
that the Kohala ditch people had
a good crusher of large capacity
now out of use that would be
obtainable. On motion, chairman -Moir
was authorized to advertise
for bids, for furnishing n ten-ton
steam roller' to cost about $3,550.
The committee rose and re
ported to the above effect by items
and the report was adopted.
On motion of Shipman, $5000.
was ordered transferred (rom the"
gencrul fund to the road funds of
the various, districts, on the table
of percentages in effect.
Fernandes rose for information,
stating that he had heard the coun
ty had been sued.
The chairman stated that such
was the case, papers having been
served on him asking $10,000 dam
ages from county on acouut of dam
ages sustained by the laud slide
occurring at Onomea gulch about
the date of Feb. 4, 1906. County
Attorney Williams was called in
for an opinion in the matter. The
county attorney read the summons
served. Kumazo Matsumura, was
named as plaintiff and the com
plaint was signed by Carl S. Smith
as attorney. The complaint charges
that under the County Act the
county may be sued as a natural
person, that the county has been
legalfy authorized to have by its
agents, gnieral power to open
maintain and construct high ways,
that the land slide was caused by
the act of its agent in turning the
water from a flume into the earth,
uuderming a section and causing
the' slide that resulted in the de
struction of complainant's store,
dwelling house, stables and out
houses, together with their contents
of the value of $10,000.

''The most remarkable experience
of Edward Devauchelle, who reach
ed land after swimming nearly
thirty miles and being in the water
seventeen hours, recalls many old
tales," says the Advertiser. "E.
G. Hitchcock, marshal under the
repjiblicwas capsized in a boat in
that " same cTJaTTrieT oncer aid
reached shore after he had been in
the water 24 hours. It was be
cause of that experience that Hitch
cock got the name among the na
tives of being a great kahuna.
They thought he had conquered
the sea, perhaps. .
"Judge Kalua, Circuit Judge on'
Maui, was in a boat with his wife
in that same vicinity, when the
boat was swamped by a heavy sea.
The Judge and Mrs. Kalua were in
the water for the better part of
twenty-four hours, and finally
reached the shore of Iuiai safely.
"A native, going from Kauai to
Niihau in a small boat, was cap
sized, and reached the small island
after having been in the water
for more than twenty-fotir hours.
This man, too, landed ou the islet
from which he swam to Niihau.
"On Sunday, 10th of May, 1840,
schooner Keola foundered in Ha
waii channel, a considerable dis
tance west of Kohala Point. A
Mr. Thompson of L,ahaina was
djpwned but his wife and two
young men reached Kahoolawe
next day. Mauae of Lahaina, and
his wife, Kaluahinenui, swam to
gether, each with an empty bucket
for support, uutil Monday after
noon, when the man's strength
failed. His wife then took his
arms around her neck, holding
them with one hand and swim
ming with the other, until she found
he was dead, when she was obliged
to let him go in order to save her
own life. After sunset she reached
Kahoolawe, having been in the
water thirty-six hours."

Honolulu, June 5. A deplorable
automobile accident occurred about
9:30 last night, in which Louis
Marks was almost instantly killed
and Charles A. Bon received serious
injury to his arm. The other occu
pants of the machine, Mrs. Marks
and Mrs. Bon, escaped injury in an
almost miraculous manner.
Mr. Marks was acting as chauff

auto plunged twenty-five feet to the

Bon was pinned beneath the seat
when the auto came to rest, his
left arm severely torn, but he
managed to free hiniself and go to
the aid of Marks, who was lying at
the foot of the bank.
A Saying To Plantations.
"In my opinion this alcohol bill
now before Congress, if passed, will
prove a great thing for the sugar
plantations in this Territory," said
Senator L. L. McCandless.
"The bill provides for the remo
val of the tariff on alcohol manu
factured for fuel and machinery
purposes. At present the planta
tions of Ewa, Aiea, Waipahu and
Waialua ou this Island are only
spending about $1,200,000 every
year for coal and oil fof fuel, while
molasses, waste is being put out on
the fields for fertilizer. With the
internal revenue tariff on alcohol,
for fuel purposes, removed, this
molasses waste could be converted
into alcohol for fuel and a great
saving realized." Bulletin.

With 1000 tons of Chinese fire
crackers, torpedoes and joss sticks
beneath her hatches, the steamer
Yeddo arrived at Boston recently
after completing in safety a 13,000
mile voyage from Japan and China.
Great caution was used during the
voyage to prevent any fire from
lamps, and matches, and the officers
and crew were greatly " relieved
when port was reached without
accident. The value of the Yeddo's
