PRICE 5 CENTSt Change of Route Of Belt Road Is Urged by Tavares Suggests That Extending On From Ulupalakua To Con nect With a Kipahulu-Kau-po Road Is Less Costly. Change of sentiment as to how the road to liana should run was in dicated at the meeting of the Cham ber of Commerce yesterday afternoon when Senator A. F. Tavaies made it evident that lie favors abandoning the Idea of a road llnough the Ditch Tiiall country and going the other way around. On his motion a com mittee of three was named to take till with th board of supervisors the question of in which direction the road should run and to ask the board to have the county engineer furnish figures as to probable costs of both routes. The committee is composed of A. F. Tavares, Frank Sommorfold and V, L. Stevenson. Senator Tavares said there will have to be a load built between Ki pahulu and Kaupo and lie believed the shortest, cheapest and best route for the belt road would bo around the soutli side of the mountain to con nect up with the Kipahdlu-Kaupo road, which must be built in any event. Senator Hice said lie was not ready to express his view definitely as yet but seemed inclined to favor it. County Attorney E. It. Revins called attention to the necessity for definite figures on all projects, said that it took six months to got figures on belt lino road an it had been plan' nod from Kailua on and that the County engineer could not get such figures before January 11 as was sug gested. Senator Tavares then amend ed his motion to February 9. In the opinion of Senator Tavares the cxtenticn of the road from Ulupa lakua woif.d be much loss costly than by way of Kailua, the latter road be ing characterized by him as a road for sightseers. County Attorney I5ev ins said he had been aiound the mountain on that side by trail and while dry, the nature of the country would make the road costly. Senator Tavares said a less costly type of load could bo built by going in that direction. William Walsh brought out the point that the law requires a certain typo of road, which Is costly, when roads are built from the loan fund. The committee is expected to go before the board of supervisors with their proposals at the meeting this afternoon. Supervisor Drummond was at the meeting of the Chamber but did not speak on the subject of the route of (ho road. Irish Have Revenge For Assassinations (ASSOCIATED PRESS) DUBLIN. Dec. 8.
