visors last night by the Honolulu wa

and John H. Alison, aivwea me re
port Into two partstbe historical data
on the water supply of Honolulu aod
its own findings The latter cott
slsted of inTestlgations on the toh
lowing subjects: gurfac waters aa4
sprtngs on the. sotttherry.. watersiietl
of Oahu, and also ba tt&e : xrortJisrly
watershed for both the storm and per
xnal flow; artesian water and pumping
plants,' water available by -pumptaa
storage and distribution reserrolrs
and sites and filter and purification
From these inrestigatiotfa the com
mission found, according to its report,
that , the following sources are feas
ible to develop: The surface wafer
flowing from the valleys from Palola
valley to Moanalua valley, , artesian
water, by tunnelUng the Koolau
mountains back of the city and col
lectlng the water which may be ob
tained from springs and .streams oa
the north side of the island.
The commission strongly recom-
In favor of surface water instead of
artesian water because of the cost of
pumping to high levels and because
the surface water in question cannot
be spared. In regard to tunnelling,
Jorgensen recommended that a series
of concentration ditches and tunnels
be run along the northern base of
Koolau mountains both north and
south 6;: point opposite Kallhl and
a - tunnel" through the mountains
emerging in Sailhi valley on the Hono
lulu side at an elevation of wo reel
The Oommfttlon strongly, recom
mended a filtration plant for Nuunau
vaTJey because of the constant danger
of diseases -without it.
Speaking of the water supply of
Honolulu the report says:
The water supply system of this
city has been created haphazard and
no comprehensive plan for its devel
opment has been formulated or adopt
ed. As an instance $100,000 was spent
in developing 20,000 gallons in Paloki
and again surface water has been
overlooked which could be cheaply
secured while an expensive pumping
plant was erected."
The report says, however, that the
development and present condition of
Honolulu's water ibstem is not at
tributed to any man or body of men
but Is because in a few years Hono
lulu has grown from a primitive vil
lage to a city.
The report was accepted by the
board of supervisors. The historical
data was ordered placed in the terri
torial archives and the report of the
commission and the' Individual reports

The fact that county officials are
to bear largely the responsibility of
registering citizens, and that these of
ficials will change more or less on
July 2 owing to the recent election,
makes it seem probable that no date
sooner than this will be chosen.
Estimates from Washington compil
ed in the census bureau upon the last
returns place the number of Hawaii
registrations expected somewhere
around 36,000, this being the number
of certificates that arrived today

registration officials. Twice as

also received today. It is said that

registration are expected. . The mate-
