BRIDGES COLLAPSE A telephone niessagewas received from Hanalei at ndon to-day, to the effect that three bridges in the Ilanalei District which are to be replaced with new ones, had collapsed. One bridge had been but fairly cleared by a loaded wagon, when it fell with a crash into the stream, while a second bridge went down, carrying part of the wagon with it. Fortunately the team had secured sound footing and were able to withstand the strain. A third bridge collapsed with no great loss, as the timbers were useless The cause of this wholesale col lapsing of bridges is attributed to the constant strain on the old timbers, during the last week when wagons loaded with crushed rock have passed over them.
