Slow Progress In
New Makawao Tract Has Experienced
Much Delay Of Red Tape Variety
Last Delay Will Be Advertis.
ing The Lots To Be Opened
Work on the road system through
the new Makawao hompstead tract be
low Ollnda is almost finished and a
large number of prospective home
steaders are anxiously waiting for the
tract to be opened. The opening of
this tract has been delayed for nearly
3 years on one excuse or another.
Getting the roads surveyed, was the
first delay. When this was finally ac
complished another delay resulted be
fore another department could get
men on the ground to subdivide the
tract Into lots. This second lot of
surveyors consumed many months of
time at the work. Then after all the
surveys were made a period elapsed
before tenders were called for the con
struction of the roads, without which
the Governor (very properly) refused
to open the tract.
Some time was also consumed In
advertising for and getting the work
efvfijncing the tract cpmpleted. This
work, however, was done by young
Portuguese residents of Makawao
who bid low on the contract and rush
ed the work through in record time.
Now the prospective homesteaders,
who took the contract for the roads,
have about completed their work, and
another period of waiting must ensue
during which the lots must be adver
tised, as required by law. Land Com-
