The Chief Desideratum Facility of
Hauling Away of Freight by
Fred.W. McCheBney has a plan
for wharf improvements on the
Nuuanu streot side of tho bnrbor.
Ho showed his sketch to a Bulle
tin reporter ot noon. There was
not time for printing n dingram,but
anybody interested may make ouo
for himself by following this des
cription of existing wharf mea
Beginning at Alton & Robin
son's lumber yard, thero is first
tho boat; landing slip. This con
tains sixty feet wido of deep water
by tbo sido of Brewar's wharf,thiH
wharf being 115 feet wide by 210
deep. Crossing a dock 100 feet in
width the Irracard wharf, 80 feet
wido, is reached. Theu another
dock 100 foet aornss brings you to
oorenson a wharf 80 feet wulo. By
extending Brewer's nndSnrennon's
whirf out 35 feet eaob, all of tho
wharves named hero would align
evonly at their outer extremities.
Referring to his skotch, Mr.
"Add Gl feet to tbo "Wnikiki
side of Brewer's wharf, and run
the wholo wharf 35 feot farther
out, nu n line with tho Irmgard
wlnirf. This will givo 175 feet
wide by 215 feet deop.
"Tho Irmgard wharf, which is
only 80 feet wide, has two lows of
posts itpwu OHCh side which sim

make this wharf of duo benefit to
tho publio ii to run tlioao two
small wharves tho Irtnuard and
Sorensnn together and innko one

feet deep. Such a wharf would
permit ot throe lrge voxels uu

" I claim that wo neod thootwo
wharves enlirged a snugested, no
matter what steps aro takou for
tho enlargement of tho harbor.
Theso wharves did well enough
ten yoars ago for tho amount of
frotght wo banilfd theu and the
small vessels, but now uith tho
largo vessels aud tho iramonso
amount of freight including heavy
pieces of maouinery, tho wharves
are entirely too narrow. And to

as tho Government sm-geste, would
