Editor EvENisa Bulletin:
When tbo congestion of tho har
bor front and wharf facilities,
about a year ago, caused pressuro
in tbo mercantile portion of this
oommunity and becamo public
property by discussion in the
newspapers, tho undersigned by a
communication to tho Bulletin
of Fob. 1, 1898 date, suggested a
rolief to be found iu tbo future
by opening a canal betwoen tbe
prison and tbe O. R. R. & L.
Company's work shops running
through the rico plantation to the
Kalihi hadin or harbor.
It now seeinB that tlio pressuro
from tlio increased trail! a of steam
ers and coal ves'ols caused by tho
war at tuu L'uiuppiue islands, and
also by a large prospective crop of
sugar (luring the coming )oar,antl
its hhipinent by numerous vessels
to Sau Francisco and also to New
York, has increased tbe demands
upon already over worked
wharves, and immediate assist
ance is required To this, it is an
nounce! tuat tbe Government bos
responded, and that tbo Kinau,
Nuuanu nnd Sorronson wharves

ling is all won and right, but
is it enough? Permit me to sug
gest a plan, which has dawned
upon mo within tbe last fow days
nud which I have nover been sue
gosted or recommended before.
If wise or otherwise lot those in
terested and the public jaduo.
Should tho Inter Island Steam
Ship Co. as it has proposed, loave
its present quarters and go ov-r
to the old Fish markot wharves,
and should tbe Government ao
quiro tbo Job. Robinson & Co's
ship yard property, it would havo
a long line of harbor frontage
from tho turn in tho I 1. S. S.
Co's wharf to close upon tho
Alloa & Robinson block build
Now eomraonoing at tho turn in
tbe 1. I. 8. S. Co's wharf and
running at a correct auglotbo full
loiiath or perhaps a littlo more

to meet the present wharfage
front, and you havo prosorved nud
perhaps improved their wharfage
front. Tbey will havo to oxtond
their storngo building to adnpt
themsolvt's to their now frontage;
for a gooil proportion of their
present buildiug will fall to tbe
ubo of tlio next coming wharf.
From tho Oceania Steam Ship
Company's now wharf onward
is still a long distance; sufficient,
I think, to run thioe slips 200 or
mora foot inland to near Fort
My remomberauce of tbe dis
trict below the James Robinson &
Co.'e ship yard, and tbo old Fort
site adjoining, now called tbo
Esplanade, is that there was cou-
siuorablo iloptli or. wator upon
It must be bourne in mind that
tho drodgor of that timo was a
steam scoop shovel, which with a
dive, a hoist and a swing dolivor
ed by moans of a bingo in its
bottom, a half to a full car lotd of
mud, nccording as it had luck iu
its dive, to sundry cars stationod
on floating scows, which wero
towed by the tug Pelo and deliver-
ed by convict labor on the Espla
nade. It was therefore easier and
rnoro economical to fill up water
too shallow for tho uso of ship
ping than to dig it out.
Tho articlo iu tbo Advortiser of
last week upon shipping and tbe
wharves sayB, that tbo lumber,
coal nnd iron, should bo delivered
and stored on tho Ewa sido of tho
harbor, and that as business in
creases wo must work into tbo Kit
lilii harbor. Very true. Tho
communication to tbo Bulletin
roforred to, suggesting tbe way
through tho rico plantation, was
mado becauso it was supposed
that tho way botween Quarantine
Island nud tho Prison was im
practicable on account of coral of
If it is practicable of which
fact I am ipnorant it is tho better
woy, so far rb tbe city is concern
ed; as tbo rico plantation way will
requiro a heavy, expensive and
probably unwieldy draw bridgo
across tho canal, constantly called
into uio by ships desiring to pass
iu or out.
If this plan ,or suguostion of
mine is of auv ubo. or dovolops in
tbo handling of other minds into
auy plan that is practicable, it
has accomplished its purpose.
