THE KEWALO DITCH

Ecrybody donn Kewalo way does

the suburbanites there domiciled, with
al a. man of considerable practical
knowledge regarding useful works, has

It will drain the soil through Its solid

The Kewalo ditch had to be con

correspond with the mean tide lcel.
So flat Is the Kewalo moiasi that the

be given a gradient of but one foot. Its
