Tho Interest which litis been exhibit
ed in tho proposal to open up n Kind
around Diamond Head, to connect with
tho Wnlalao road, lins become gcncr.il
and, ns thcro has been some dtllciir.ue
of opinion on tho route to bo selected,
tho following gentlemen Intel csted In
tuo matter havo been aBkcd to brlcil
express nn opinion. There Is no dlff jr
enco of opinion as to tho necessity tmd
utility of tho road, but as two loutcs
havo presented themselves thcro has
arisen somo discussion thereon.
Mr. L. A. Thurston said: "I nra
thoroughly in tavor of tho road because
wo havo reached a point In tho novel
opment of tho city where wutor front
property Is unavailable elsewhere
than beyond Diamond Head" Thl !
ccssltatcs a road around the Head. A-
to whether tno new rood should bo lo
cated on tho beach or bo n pi obliga
tion of tho road which runs past the
light house Is a question. I am in fa
vor of tho upper road, for two reasons.
There will havo to bo more cutting
along tho beach at tho baso of the
bluff in order to get a permanent rond
vway secured. If tho road bo built on
tho beach, whero It la now, tho first
. I heavy kona will wash it nil away. The
road to bo safa would havo to bo buili
at nn elevation of at least eight feet
Again, tho upper road will cost no more
and probably less than tho lower, tine
will have a tino sea view throvghou
tho entire length. Therefore, I favo.
tho upper route."
Mr. A. W. Carter said: "Wo sent li
a petition for a road around Dlumon
Head nlaug tho beach. The nutti
was brought up In tho Council o
Stato nnd Minister Young exposed his
approval of tho routo selected, but
stated ho did not consider that tho
amount asked was sufficient to con
struct tho road as far ns Wnfalap; mid
ho therefore recommended tlv.it the
amount of $15,000 Instead of ?5,0n lis
appropriated. This sum will undoubt
edly bo needed to construet tho new
road nil tho way to Walalae. The nuln
road to be built will bo about three
or four miles long and will meet the
Wnlalao road recently constructed by
Mr. l'nul lsenbcrg. Tho new load 71 II
open up n considerable tract of Gov
ernment land, which will bo nvaltablo
as building property ns soon as water
Is laid on. In addition to this thcro 13
a largo tract of tho bishop Estato land
which tho trusters hopo to make avail
able. This is now about the only Kind
left near tho city which has a wide,
white sand beach frontage nnd good
I Mr. A. V. Gear said: "Tho Minister
'of tho Interior promised In the Chnm
'bcr oi Conimerco that as soon us funds
were avnllablo ho would start upon ths
construction of tho road around Dia
mond Head. Tho routo was selected by
Minister Young and tho Road Super
visor, who drove over a portion of tho
present road accompanied by Mr. lsen
bcrg, Mr. .Dodge, Mr.. Alfred Cartor
and myself. I understand this road
, will run over Government property up
to Kaalawal, whero it will branch to
Walalno and pass through prlva'o
property. I also undei stand that tho
bulk of this prlvato property belongs
to the Dlshop Estate, and I bclievo it
would bo a public spirited nrtlon if
tho Dlshop Estate would locate the
road through their property and along
the sea beach.' '

Improvements mado In connection with
tho Oahu Sugar Co. during tho quaran
tine. Manager Ahrcns is branching
out In ulrcctlons that aro bound to re
sult most advantageously to tho plan
tation. It will bo remembered that a short
tlmo since, a long lcaso of Ford's Isl
and and tho II peninsula was obtained
from tho 11 Estate.
Tho trees havo been entirely eleared
from tho former placo and now, wherp
tho only activity was tho (light of birds
to and fro, steam plows and Japanese
laborers arc to bo seen bard at work.
Sixty acres of cano wero planted dur
ing tho quarantine, a couplo of months
ago and this Is now doing ns well ns
tho cano on tho plantation proper
which, as overyono knows, Is tho beat
that can bo found anywhere
Two steam plows aro now busily en
gaged in tho work of preparing moro
land for tho planting of cano. At n
rough estimate, it is calculated that
tho plantation will bo able to get near
ly six hundred acres of flno enno land
out of tho Island.
For irrigation purposes, two wells
with excellent flows havo already beon
sunk and another Is now boring.
On tho Island is a camp of seventy
Japancso under hustling limns who
lire rapliliy transforming tho plnrc hit
n vast cancflcld. Sixty mules have als
been placed on the Island.
On the II peninsula Is n camp of 18
Jarantse, doing tho same work n
thebo en Ford's Island. Here nlso i
vast nvmbcr of trees have been cu
down and tho land turned Into cant
fields. Wells are now bslng sunk oi
tho new addition.
Heretofore the waste water from tli
mill has br"n runpln" Into the !i b"1
now it will bo turned on the peninsula
cnneflelds, thus saving n good deal ti
tho plantation. As tho land Is on
;rent level stretch, no pumping will ot
necessary nnd llumlng win be a thlur
very easily accomplished.
It Is estimated that something In tlu
iclghborhood of 3,000 cords of wood
'invo been obtained from the algeroba
rces cleared away from Ford's Islam'

Minister Alexander Young speaking
of tho new Diamond Head road tint
nioiuing said: "I, of course, icconi
mend tho beaeh road. Ono reason for
this is that tho country over which tho
upper load runs would make It expen
sive, and even dangcious In soinu
places. Tho angle of tho natuial slop':
Is, In some places, ns great us 43 do
iec3; consequently to mako a road
even 40 feet wide on tho solid ground
would require n cut on ono sldo 40 feet
deep. From this gicnt height over
banging tho road material would be
constantly detaching Itself and falling
upon tho roadway. Again, tho fllU, ns
well ns tho cuts, will bo vciy deep In
somo places and will requlro great
masses of material to fill up with, lnas
much us tho ulopo of tho fills will haw
to tnko tho limited angle of resistance.
This would probably bo about 30 de
grees from tho horlzontnl line.
"Now that the upper road will bo the
best from tho scenic standpoint there
can ho no question. Hut on the beach
road, which would probably bo In most
places ten or twclvo feet above high
tide, a person can see far enough sea
ward for all practical purposes. Tho
upper road would simply extend tho
horizon n llttlo farther. Tho ronntrue
tion of tho lower road will bo moder
ate In cost nnd can be made of a per
manent naturo, without f'-nr of distur
bance by tho sea. Again, when Dia
mond Head has been rounded, tho load
will lead through a tract of valuable
laud, from which branches may lead
towaids tho scashoro and towards the
hill slope, passing through Govern
ment land and Joining ono of tho roads
through tho Gear, Lansing & Co.'s tract
on tho Kapahulu road near tho Knplo
ldnl Park. Tho main road will pro
ceed over an oven country most of It
good Innd, where nrtcslan wells could
be easily sunk, thenco Joining Paul
Isenbcrg's new road which runs into
tho Walalao road. Thenco tho return
could bo mado by the Walalao road to
either tho Kapahulu road or Dcrctaula
"If tho upper road Is swung around
on tho lino laid out by Mr. Bruner, not
only will a largo sum need to bo spent
for construction, but the road will not
open up tho territory necessary In that
locality. Tiiereioro i strongly rccom
mend tho beach road. I havo no per
sonal Interest In tho matter, but I have
reached this conclusion after carefully
going over tho ground."
