MAUI WANT8 HEARING
ON PROPOSED CHANGE
IN KAHULUI PROJECT
A letter from the Maul Chamber of
Commerce, signed by Secretary D. H.
Cane, wis received last Tuesday by
the otfice of the U .S. district engin
eer, asllng that a public hearing be
authorised at which the question of a
change in the pierhead and bulkhead
. lines at Kahulul harbor can be taken
up and liie views of all Interested par
ties obtained, says the Star Bulletin.
The lettor reads as follows:
"When the pierhead and bulkhead
lines .. In Kahulul harbor were estab
lished In April, 1909, It was anticipa
ted that piertiead wharves, separated
by slips, would be constructed. This
plan has now been definitely abandon
ed, and the first unit of a series of
bulkhead wharves is now about to be
constructed by the territorial govern
"Under these circumstances It
appears that the present pierhead line
serves no useful purpose, and la our
opinion It should be changed so as to
coincide in location with the present
bulkhead line. We therefore request
that 'a public hearing be authorized
and called at which this subject may
be taken up and the views of all in
terested parties obtained."
Col. C. A. P. Flagler, district engi
neer, is now on the mainland on leave
of absence. , Richard Quinn, assistant
to the district engineer, said today
that he will write to the chief of en
gineers, Washington, T. C, requesting
permission for a hearing.

Dr. Waterkouse is a strong believe
in Twigg Smith's Toggenburg goats
tor Kauai. He emphasizes the fact,
which is very abundantly confirmed
by his experience as a plantation phy
sician, that good milk Is a moot vital
necessity for , babies and growing
children, and that this Is not readily
obtained on most plantations.
A first class dairy, like that recent
ly established at.Llhue, is of course a
most satisfactory solution bf the
plantation milk problem. But. this
involves a very large outlay, as well
as favorable conditions that are not
always readily found. Pending such
solution good goats would be a
It is well known that goats milk la
richer than cows milk, and under fav
orable conditions is just as palatable.
Goats are not subject to tuberculosis,
so they have that advantage over
cows. Tney can be very easily kept,
and at a- very nominal cost.
His suggestion Is that a few high
class animals be secured, and from
these a less expensive grade of stock
be bred, which would come within the
means of plantation ' laborers and
others. Thorough bred Toggenberg
kids can be got for JS0.00; these bred
with our own native stock would give
good, grade of stock that would be
reasonable in price, yet satisfactory
as miikors. ,
The current prejudice against goats
milk on account of odor, is without
foundation as far as the Toggenburgs
It is Impossible, we are told, for the
ordinary person to distinguish this
kind of goats milk from the beet cows
KEEN TO COME BACK
VENUS FLIRTS WITH THE MOON
A wonderful performance of two
heavenly bodies was observed on Fri
day evening last at Lihue "about 7:30
In the evening.
In the western sky sailed the young
moon, crescent Bhaped and showing
plainly the darkened' part of the circle.
Apparently perched on the left horn
of the moon sat ..Venus in all her
glory, do close to the moon as to
seemingly overlap , the dark part;
this was perhaps caused by refraction.
The observers were awestruck by
the beauty of the two .luminaries and
watched silently for ' a few 'minutes,
when clouds obscured the view.
' la over fifty years of life, many
spent at sea, It has never been the ob
server's good fortune to see anything
nearly as beautiful as this sight was.

The Bank of Hawaii has moved Its
central .department and bookkeepers
to the second floor of the buliding,

has been put through and a record
vault on the second floor built by

also installed a unit telephone system
putting each department of the bank
on a private exchange.
The change will give the tellers and
offices of the bank more room on the
first floor of the building and has the
effect of concentrating the depart
