IN HACKFELD STREET
Team Come3 Near Going Over On'o
Rocks--Wa3 Amusing But
Might Have Been
Two genOpmen coming down HacU
feld street n lew mornings ago nuie
treated to a very positive demonstra
tion or the necessity of fencing in the
quarry that borders the street near the
Hackfeld residence. The Incident turn
ed out to be highly amusing but more
through good luck than special care
taken to protect the street from n
closely adjoining pitfall.
As these gentlemen were sauntering
down the street to take the morning
enr their attention was called to the
Hackfeld premises by an unusual rack
ct Inside, the ground. Excited shoiits
coupled with tlio noise of apparently n
whole caravan of drnys woke the
echoes. No time was given for Investi
gation. The cause of the dlstiirb-inro
soon appeared. Two husky mulcx r.liot
through the gate. The animal were
attached to a sort of furniture van.
On the driver's seat were two darkles
and another citizen whose nm! nallty
was not so easily determined.
All these men were trying to drive,
the brakes were on and all were shout
ing wittily In an endeavor to check the
headlong pace of the mules. The out
fit was going at such a rate that It
was Impossible to turn. They were
headed straight for the quarry and ji

depths. A smash up seemed Inevitable.
Just us tlio wagon approached the
edge of the abyss the drivers, still
howling, unloaded thitimelvos Indis
criminately. They gave no studied at
tention to the order of their departure.
Head over heels they left the sent.
Double sommersaults wcro performed
and an Indiscriminate combination of
gyrating arms and legs filled their im
mediate atmosphere. The ulioutlrs
topsy turvy three had no sooner touch
ed the giound than the mules Hopped
at tho very brink of tho quarry. The
momentum of the cart was not sum-
clent to enrry them ovr so the beasts
delayed to contemplate tho scenery
The three drivers gathered them
selves together and, with tho assistance
of the two spectators got their rig In
shape again. No sooner was the out
fit straightened out, than the mules
again bolted, this time being brought to
a btandstill In an adjoining gutter,
finally tho wheels were tied and tho
lively drivers left to work ouf their

WOULD ERECT TANKS

Confronted by a Big
The statement of Flic Commissioner
Urown calling nttcnllon to thu possible
exhaustion of the water supply In case
of a seiies of tires has attracted the at
tuition of tho business community to
the subject. The suggestion was made
by T. K. Davidson of John Emmcluth
& Co. that some schenw should be de
vised to draw on the large supply of
salt water, afforded by the l'aclflc
ocean. He favors the e.-ectlon of three
or four derricks with ample storage
tanks, In as many places in the down
town business district.
"Tho suprrloilty of salt water as a
lire quencher over fresh water Is gen
erally loncrcled. The q.icstlon of erect
ing these tanks Is not one of expense,"
mid Mr. Davidson. "It Is one of utility

parts of the business el'.Mrlct might be

below tide level could be laid to the

tho signal for opening tho Hood gates

"What Honolulu wants Is an Inex

the only solution of this oovlous need."
