IN THE EXECUTIVE COUNCIL
H. Hackfeld & Co.'s Wharf Application
for Kaanapall Granted.
Conditions Imposed Gomnment May Take
Over Wharf If It to Desires -Kanuku
Plantation Charter Amended.
Tho principal business at the
meeting or the Cabinot this foro
noou was tho consideration of tho
application of H. Hackfeld & Co.
to bo allowed to build a private
wharf at Kaanapali, Maui. In
granting permission for the build
ing of such wharf tho government
imposed tho following conditions;
"The looatiou and plaus to be
subject to the approval of the
Minister of the Interior, the en
tire cost of constrncting and main
taining the wharf to bo borne by
yourselves; customs and polico
ollicors to have access to tho wharf
at all times; tho government to
have the right at any time, upon
six months' notico in writing, to
tako wharf over upou paying tho
value of tho stiuotnre at the time;
tho public to have the right to
use tho wharf at any time, subjpet
only to suuh reasonable charges
as may be made fir lifting freight
upon the wharf or from tho wharf
by your h listing pi int."
I is a well kmwn fact that II.
Elackrel I & Co has already built
a wharf at Kaanapali but this
having been found inadequate to
ihe n ie Is of tho plao, it is now
souujit to extend it so that per
mission is really asked for tho
Another matter that came up
for the c mi-idoratioo of the Oabi
uet was the application of thu Ka
huku plantation for permission to
amend its charter denominating
theshares at $20 instead of $110.
This was k ran ted.
Tho potion of Peacock & Co. to
amend its chatter so as to bo able
to purchase stock in other corpor
ations was considered but no de
cision was reached.
