QUESTION OF CEMETERIES
Discussion by Conference of Three Bod
ies Yesterday Afternoon.
Kabauikl vs. Halawa Diamond Head
Punchbowl Distance and Soil and
Water are Mailers In Question,
Tho conference on the cemetery
question was hold in President
Dole's ollico at 3 p. rn. yesterday.
There wero present: President
Dole, Minister of tho Interior
King; Attorney General Smith,
piosideut, and Dr. Emerson, Dr.
Day, Dr. Wood nud L. D. Kolii
pio, of the Board of Health; A. S.
Ologhorh, David Dayton and H.
M. von Holt of the Oaliu Cemo
tery Association; F. A. Sohaefer,
vice-president, Mark P. Robinson
and Goo W. Smith of the Queen's
Hospital Trustees, nud Dr. Gar
Attornoy tienoral Smith ex
plained, with tho aid of maps, dif
ferent propositions lor new como
torios, one to each oud of tho citv.
Reserving tho Nuuanu nud Mn
kiki cometeripB for tho present,
the Attorney General advocated
two such sites. Whatever locn
tious wero deemed most suitable
the Innd, if not owned by the Gov
eminent, should be acquire 1 un
der tho Eminent Domain Aut.
Tbo sites when obtained should bo
turned oyer to the Oabu Cemetery
Association. He had littlo doubt
that the revonuo from the lots
would pay tho expeneo. Either
Halawa orKalmuiki ho would ad
vocato for tho cometery at tho
northwestern end. Halawn, how
ever, could not be obtained within
ton years except by condemnation
Mr. -von Holt nked if Kalihi
valley had ovor been considered.
Iho Attorney Genpral answered
with two objections to Kalihi vnl
ley. Ono was the distance, the
other tho fact of that being n
source of water supply.
Presidont Dote asked for opin
ions of choice bolwebn Haluwn
Mr. Scimefer was decidedly in
favor of Kabauikl. It was about
three miles from the conter of
town, and would be convenient to
the growing suburbs in tbatdiroo
tion. Halawa was too far away,
boaides being in tho midst of new
canefields. He did not agrcp with
tbo Attornoy General's opinion
that tho rcsidenco section would,
for a loug time at least, crowd
ngninst a cemetery in that place.
President Dole nsked why the
old cemetery surmounting the
Asylum grounds could not be ex
tended for the prosent needs.
Mr. Dayton replied that tbe
ground was too rocky. It took
nbout a day to dig a gtavo there.
Mr von riolt nan riiuton over
giouud in tho vicinity and believ
ed that Butliciont depth of free
earth could be found not far away.
Mr. Daytou, nfter further con
verfntiou, enid tho Association
would hold n mooting and decide
whether to put tbo scheme through,
as tho President had suggested,
whenever a site had been selected.
President Dole, in the course of
genoral convocation, mentionod
that all along he had beeu iu favor
of Punchbowl crater. Thoro might
bo other suitable places not yet
mentioned. S. T. Alexander bnd
suggested the crater of Diamond
Mr. Cleghorn spoke of the prac
ticed ho had noticed in European
countries of having cometerics on
hillsides overlooking cities. Ho
thought tbe Punchbowl nud Dia
mond Head propositions worth
Dr. Day was sorry if tho con
ference settled upon any site that
was liablo to Iv (nought within
the city limits. His idea was that
if Haluwa could not be obtained,
they should go farther, lie ask
ed Mr. Dayton if it was not a fact
that tho Catholio cemetery iu
King stroot was when started
away out of town. Mr. Daytou
answered that it was nothing but
n bullock pasture. Dr. Day,
proceeding, urgod that it was in
advisable to havo a cometery en
croach on giound that was likely
to become residential property.
Somo of tho outlying suburbs
wero already so beautiful ns to
causo people to drivo there to see
them. Whon olectrio enrs would
bo uiuuing in every direction, the
growth of tho residential sections
would rapidly increase. Tho
spoaker thought tho questiou of
crematories ought to como into
tho discussion not to mako cio
mation compulsory, howovor, he
said in answer to" Piosidont Dole.
Upon a motion of tho Attorney
Geuernl, tho President appointed
the following joint committee to
report on tho whole matter: Dr.
Day and Geo. W. Smith of tho
Hoard of Health, H. M. von Holt
nnd A. S. Clegboru of tho Onhu
