SALT WATER FOR STREETS
many nnnn reasonn wht it in

ITIurli Superior lor Sewer Flnxlilnif
Hiid Vroienti llic Generation ill
Tlio city of San Francisco, or
rather un association of merchants
which nttonds to kcoping the busi
ness streots swept and watered,
paying for the expenses of the
same by voluntary contributions,
has lately been conducting a
series of experiments in stroet
sprinkling, having for their object
the determination of the problem:
Which is more preferable for
street "sprinkling purposes, fresh
or salt water? Judging from the
evidence at hand everything
points to the superiority of salt
These experiments should be of
Great interest to Honolulu prop!?.
If one-half what is said of the
superiority of salt water over fresh
for'the purpose istruo the experi
ment should bo tried hero at once.
Owing to the prevailing trado
winds the business streets of Ho
nolulu are generally in the condi
tion that Market street in San
Francisco used to be every after
noon before the Merchants' As
sociation took it in hand and
showed the street department how
to clean and sprinkle a stroot.
Superintendent King of the
Merchants' Association has sub
mitted a report of the results of
the experiments with salt water
for street-sprinkling purposes in
which he sayB. "Last Sunday
Market street was sprinkled three
times from Tenth street to the
ferries, between 8 a. m, and 4 p.
m. Experiments were also made
on the north side of Market street,
from Jones to Foil, Fifth street,
from Market to Mission, and Mis
sion street, from Fourth to Fifth,
and in each case the superiority
of salt water over fresh for
sprinkling purposes was very
marked. The reasons for thin, as
Htated in tho report, are: Salt
water makes the dirt between tho
cobbles more cohesive; it does not
dry so quickly as fresh water and
it is claimed, in cities where it,
is used, that one load of salt water
is equal, in effect, to three of fresh
water; tho salt deposit on the
streets absorbs moisture from tho
air during tho night which, in tho
morning, leaves tho street thor
oughly damp, as though it had
been freshly sprinkled, and thus
prevents dust bofore the morning
sprinklers get over tho ground; it
is morn healthful than fresh water,
destroying many deletorious
germs in the dirt on tho streets.
"In the experiment on Market
stroot, one side of that thorough
fare was sprinkled with Bait water
and tho other with fresh.
"Beginning today, salt water
will bo UBed around the New Oity
Hall and on Eighth street, be
tween Market and Mission, and
tho experiment will bo continued
tho rent of tho week.
"The cost of sprinkling, it is
said, will bo vory materially less
F. W. Dohruiauu, Presidout of
the Merchants' Association, has
received reports and communica
tions relativotosalt watort sprink
ling. L. M. Kiug, Superinten
dent of tho association, cites a
numbor of citieB using salt water
for Buoh purposos, and submits
the reports from tlio Superinten
dent of Streets in Alameda, de
cidedly in favor of tho ohauga
from fresh water. Santa Barbara
oflicials favor salt water and will
resume its uho in tho uoar futuro.

Jug yearly, especially in England,
whero tho fresh water supply is a
question of serious consideration.
Mr. McOulIough recommends
salt wator as much superior to
fresh for sewer flushing. It has a
greater specific gravity, prevents
tho generation of sewer gases,
causes less deposit, and loaves no
bad effects upon the metal and
The writer understands that ono
of the reasons given for not using
salt wator in this oity is a preva
lent impression that tho saline
dust which arises after sprinkling
with sea water is conducive to eyo
and throat diseases among those
frequenting the streets on which
it is used. From conversations
with physicians and others who
should know, the conclusion is ar
rived at that there is nothing in
this idea, and that it is only a
fallacy to be easily dissipated by
actual experiment. The trial can
not be made too soon to suit the
long - sufforing merchant's and
tradesmen of this city whq point
daily to piles of gooda in their
stores actually ruined by tho pre
sent unsatisfactory system of

Hawaiian Delegates at the

Convention in San Francisco,
made addresses during the ses

makes tho following mention:
"L. A. Dickey of Hawaii was
introduced as the first president
of the first Christian Endeavor
Society in tho islands. Mr.
Dickey is a young man, scarcely
25, but he spoke in a self-possessed
manner that carried the con
viction of sincerity with every
word. He first disclaimed the
titlo of 'reverend,' stating that ho
was a lawyer. He gave an inter
esting review of missionary and
Endeavor work in the islands.
"Rev. D. L. Naone of Hawaii
was presented to the audience as
the first president of the first
native Christian Endeavor Socie
ty in the Hawaiian islands. Ho
sang a hymn in the native tongue
to the accompaniment of a plain
tive air. It aroused the enthu
siasm of the audience and the ap
plause accorded him was spon
taneous and vigorous."

Af.MO.T LOST ART.
Tnpn Mnklnir Hern t thr Home of
AVm. An Id.
The ancient Hawaiian handi
craft of tapa making cnu be seen
in performance at tho homo of
Mr. and Mrs. William
Auld, Falaraa. It is almost
a lost art, thore being vory
few Hawaiians left who are ex
port at it. At the Auld home
stead it is a native woman from
Maui who is doing tho work.
Tapa cloth is mado of the bark
of tho wauko tree, reduced to a
pulp by soaking and then beaten
into a fabric. The pulp is spread
on the top of a log square on three
sides but grooved out hoi low, on
the lower sido. This hollowness,
as Mr. Auld explains, is to produco
a choerful ring to accompany
the toil. Tho beating is done with
square clubs having fluted and
crisscross surfaces to bito into tho
pulp. When a' good-sized square
of tho orude tapa is beaten out; it
is doubled and doubled again,
with lots of beatirig between times.
A web of tapa' elbth can be made
any sizodesired within' reason. .
Figures nro introduced by lay
ing a pattern with pigments of tho.
desired colors between the last
folds before they arcpounded to
gether. Properly speaking tapa
is pnper. In Mr. Auld's yard the
wauketreo is growing, 'so that the
process of making can be seen
from the beginning.
With the decline of the art, the
price of the product has been
greatly enhanced. A1' tapa that
would cost $2.50 some years ago
cannot bo bought for loss than
S20 today. One is offered by a
woman selling native goods on
King street at $30.
Niihau mats woven out of grass
by hand represent another fading
industry. Mr. Auld has some good
ones. These mats could be bought
onoo for S5, but you want to show
$40 today to own ono.
Queen Kapiolaui had a retinue
of tapa and mat makors, who ex
hibited their craft at a great fair
held in the old armory,
Beretania street, a few years
ago. The wauke bark seem
ingly has fiuo fibrous com
bined with cohesive qualities,
and in the evont of tho establish
ing of plants here for working
vegetable fibres as will happen
before long tho raw material now
laboriously worked into tapa may
by machinery be turned into a
variety of useful and ornamental
articles of commerce.
