MR. CLEGHORN DISSENTS
Hon. A. S. Olegborn is still a
firm bolievor in tbo Punchbowl
crator as a site for a now cometery.
Ho attaches no importance to tbo
opinions of tbo experts who do
Dot have any knowledge of tho in
ternal structure of tbo mountain.
"Tbo summit of Punchbowl is
500 feot high," Mr. Clegborn says,
"and tho reservoir is rooro than
300 foot distant, laterally, from
the ruin. It is simply absurd to
bold that deleterious filtration'
from a cemetery can take place
through 800 feet of soil."
H. O. Hiart urged upon a Bol
letin reporter the desirability o
having tbo now cometery upon
low land oasy of access to the
poorer inhabitants. A placo ho
suggested aa suitable, both as to
location and soil, is part of tbo
beach territory near Indopendonoo
park or between Sheridan and
South streots. This is whoro tho
old rifle ran go was. Mr. Biart
was promised that bis suggestion
should roach tho committeo.
Tho experts to whoso opinions
Mr. Gleghoru dissents are Prof.
Brigbam and Dr. Maxwell. Those
gontlemen submitted their views,
ad verso to tho Punobbowl propo
sition, to President Dole as chair
man and committee. Their theo
ries woro to the oixoot that a
cemotery thorn situated would
communicato, through subterra

Ono of tho latest and most im
portant departures "in tho indus
trial progress of tho country is a
schema to utilize tho streams of
Kauai, owned by Giy& Robin
bod, for electrical power.
Tbero is u well founded rumor
that Gay & llobinson hav leased
their water rights in the Hauapo
pe falls and tbostronmBofKoulato
a syndicate that will proceed with
immediato development for elec
trical power to bo transmitted to
tbe mills iu tbo closo vicinity.
Mr. Gay wob asked about tho
lease tbis morning and stated that
F. J. Cross tho expert electrician
of Honolulu, had boon talking
with him with a view to obtaining
a loaso but nothing dofinito had
boon donn. Mr. Cross hns refus
od to oitbor deny or affirm that
ho baa boon connected with this
work or that tho loaso has been
obtained. It goos without saying
that if tbo leaso has been obtainod
Mr. Cross has boen and will be
an important faotor in tbosohemo.
Ho has a well established refuta
tion in the electrical world and in
making bis first tour about tbe
country was surprised to find so
much water power that might well
bo utilized with profit by tho
Elantations, runuing to waBtw. He
as mado several trips to Kauai
and it is safe to say that if no
agreement has been reached for
utilizing the water power of tho
Kauai rivers, it will bo reached
soon and betoro tue end ot six
months work will begin establUh
ing a power house aud tho para
pbornalia neenssary for harnessing
the water power and transmitting
it to the mills and pumping plants
of tbe Kauai plantations.
Investigations by expert electri
cians show that tho streams men-

tioned will dovelop at loast 1000
horao power and this powor can
bo transmitted to tho neighboring
ftlautations at an exponso of not
ess than ono cent per horso pow
er hour. To plantations that
require pumping this will reduco
tho exponso very materially and
will provo an important factor in
lessening tbo cost of sugar pro
duction. Tbo plantation makes a
saving by wiping out tho largo
item for coal required for steam
pumping plantB to say nothing of
tho reduction in running expenses
and doprociation of the plant.
F. J. Cross, who unquestionably
is interested in this now schemo,
came to Hawaii somo- months ago
to look into tho industrial field
from tho practical electrician's
standpoint. Aftor making a tour
of the islands and noting how lit
tle, bad been done in developing
tno power ot tuo stroams, no de
cided to remain, and associated
himself with tho Cation Noil Com
pany whoro ho baB beon responsi
ble for tbo introduction of many
modorn features of oleotricity as a'
cheap and practical motivo powor.
His reputation among theoretical
and practical electricians of tho
United States is of the highest
and tho worth of his work is re
cognized in the loading elootrical
journals of tho country.
While refusing to give anv do-
tailed information about tho Kauai
eohemo Mr. Cross said, "I know
that it is foasiblo to utilize tho
streams of this country, for tho
benofh of tbe plantations or any
other industrial project requiring
motivo power. Thoro is-no reason
why a groat saviog to tho planta
tions should not bo made by de
veloping tbo stroams of Kauai and
any othor of the islands.

B. F. Dillingham pointed out
to tho Chamber of Commerce tho
othor day a recourse for addi
tional harbor nnd wharf cpneo in
tho excavation of a channel to
ward Kalibi basin. The opeaker
had moro in hid uiiud when ho
uttered tho suggotton than he ex
pressed. Tho possibilities of tho Kalihi
basin for brooming a most useful

often been affirmed by practical
men who had given thon?bt to tho
subject. Within tbo past few
weeks, no readers of the Bulletin
aro nware, borings havo been
sunk in the route of tho proposed)
channel. These demonstrate, that
excavation would bo comparative
ly easy and inexpensive.
