Hngens to Delegate Kuhio in regard to Nawi liwili breakwater, to which reference has already been made in these columns, was as follows: Honolulu, T. II., DccemlKr 5th, 1916. Honorable J. K. Kalanianaole, Delegate to Congress, Washington, D. C. My dear Kuhio: Last nirfit's press dispatches, in enumerating the items in the Rivers and Harbor Bill relative to comtc m plated improvements in the Islands, listed the Hilo and Kahului haroor projects, with a Federal appropria tion of $100,000, or thereabouts, ; each, hut failed to make any m -n-tion of the Nawiliwili harbor pro jeet. I hope that the latter has not been overlooked by the friends of Hawaii in Congress. I need not dwell on the great importance of having, or rather in securing for Kauai a safe and adequate harbor and landing; you are fully posted in the premises, and I believe, aside from recognizing the crying need of the contemplated improvement at Nawiliwili, you are somewhat per sonally attached to fair Kauai by home-ties', the Garden Island being your birthplace. Any expenses that may become necessary during the various stages of bringing the Nawiliwili project for proper consideration before Con gress and of keeping the interest therein alive, will be, of course, gladly borne by us and the people of Kauai; and I appeal to you to watch that the project is not dumped I feel that you, with your long years' experience in legislative matters and j'our knowledge of local affairs and local needs, are in a better position than anybody else to impress upon Congress the necessity and import ance of the project, and that the ever increasing passenger and freight traffic, following in the wake of the astounding development of Kauai, as well as the growing tourist inter course, practically make the planned undertaking imperative. Some time ago, when at your instance Mr. McClellan was retain ed as representative of the Chamber of Commerce, the Kauai people and especially the Lihue residents, res" ponded nobly to the call for funds to make the arrangement possible. I only mention this to show that the Lihue people have their hearts set on this project and wish Con gress to see the great need thereof; it would certainly prove a keen dis appointment to them should the enterprise fall by the wayside at the eleventh hour. I should appreciate it very much, indeed, if you would drop me a few lines advising me of the status of the Nawiliwili harbor project, as I am very anxious about it, and 1 hope that you will not take it amiss that I have addressed you in the matter. Yours sincerely, (Signed) J. F. C. Hagicxs. (The wireless reply of Delegate Kuhio to the above has already leen published. Early in Decem ber Kuhio introduced in Congress a new bill covering the Nawiliwili IIar!)or item ami tin; same will come up for consideration early in January. It is believed that there is a line chance of the appropriation being secured ht the present session and of work ln-ing begun in 1!U7. Ed. Gard. Isl.) S.

Tel 37 L NAWILIWILI KAPAA RAILWAY A PRIVATE AFFAIR According to statements given out by the Governor in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin thcKcalia Kapaa rail way is a private enterprise. The article follows: Governor Pinkham, who hash, en tudyiug the Kauai railway situa tion, declared today that there is no government control over the wh irf at Kealia or the railroad which leads to Kapaa from that town. "There is no one in the govern ment that has any control of the wharf," says the governor. ''The government has not and never has had any agreement covering this stretch of traffic between Kealia i nd Kapaa. "The only agreements the govern ment has affect the homesteaders of Waipouli and South Olehena. The governor lias been trying for two years to get a common carrier riil- oad on that side of Kauai, as no common carrier road exists there today. The more feeling that is stirred up over this trivial matter, the more difficult it will be found to secure such a road." Governor Pinkham took up his recent study of the railroad situa tion on Kauai following a declara tion by Commissioner James Wake field in a harbor hoard meeting tiiat something ought to he done to com pel the Kapaa railway to haul freight for merchants there.
