LIHUE, KAUAI, TERRITORY OF HAWAII, TUESDAY, JUNE, 27, 1922 SUBSCRIPTION RATES. $2.50 PER YEAR 5 CENTS PER COPY Work To Speed Up On the Breakwater Band and Ball Team Makaweli Attraction Important Finds By Exploring Party Large Still Found By Federal Officers Kilauea Plans for Big Double Header A Big Celebration Sunday at Eleele Work on the Nawlllwili breakwater will bo speeded up within tho next few days, as some changes In re gard to quarrying the rock havu been completed and these changes will facilitate work In the quarry. Very little laying of rock In thci breakwater has been done In the past month owing to the fact that the changes In the quarry required most of the force and equipment. To enlarge the quarry It was lie cessary to remove a large amount of waste rock and earth to uncov er rock suitable for breakwater pur poses. It must be remembered that all stones on tho scusldp of the breakwater above tho low water mark must weigh eight tons or more and as a rock of this slzo is needed for every foot of breakwater con structed It can be seen that a largo number of eight ton rocks must be quarried to carry on the work. Removing this waste earth and rock was rather a large undertaking on the part of the breakwater force. Two hoisting engines wore used in this work. Ono was placed at the foot of the slope and tho other at the top. Tho lower engine was on the Koloa side of the slope while the upper was on the Lihuo side. A large scraper was then hsed to scrape across the face of the slope. Tho principle Is the same as used In steam plow work on the planta tions. The steam shoved will then follow the scraper and will com plete the clearing of tho face of the rock after which the cranes will bo used to remove and load the rock. A portion of the face has now been cleared for tho crane and the attain shovel will go ahead clear ing more space. When tho cranes have worked all the way across tho face of tho quarry tho process will be repeated,. Work' on removing the rock from the new portion of the quarry will begin today. A large amount of good rock has been found In this part of the quarry, but owing to the fact that it was necessary to uncover it, has slowed down tho work on tl)o breakwater a bit. About four hundrejl feet of breakwater has been completed to date. "SANDY" HUTTON ACCEPTS A POSITION ON HAWAII A. G.

LONGSTRETH. Postmaster. The scientific party that has been exploring tho Na Pall side of Kauai, returned Wednesday afternoon af ter a most Interesting trip spent In the many valleys on tho lesser known side of Kauai. Much Interesting Information was gathered by tho party, In regard to the former dwellers of Nualolo and Kalalau. According to Prof. Gregory these valleys show tho fin est typo of terracing for agriculture In the Hawaiian Islands. The Irri gation system used In those terrac es In which taro evidently was grown displayed great engineering skill on tho part of tho early Ha wallans who lived there. According to ancient Hawaiian stories these people were the only ones In thci Hawaiian Islands who were not conquered by Kamehamoha tho Great, anil tho story goes that Kamehameha spent a great deal of time nnd men trying to subdue them. But duo to the Impregnable posi tion of their valleys that could be held by a handful of men, he was finally forced to give up the attempt. The entrances to tho valleys from the sea and land were up ladders or on narrow trails and It was easy for the dwellers to repel any at tacks by outside for.ces. One of the most Interesting dis coveries was that of a prow of an. outrigger canoe in ono of tho caves high up on the cliff, that was brought down after somo rather precarious cliff scaling by Ronald Von Holt and Lindsay Fayo. In tho prow of the canoe were three skulls that on first examination appeared, to Prof. Gregory to belorg to some race other than the Hawaiian, probably some race that biionged moro in the south seas. This Idea Is only a conjecture on his part and he will not be able to give a final decision until ho has studied tho skulls more fully. Tho sk'ulls are much smaller than tjie typical Hawaiian skull and unless it is proved that they are skulls of children, they may give some interesting light on the mys tery of the origin of the Hawaiian people. DR. ELWOOD MEAD NOT TO VISIT GARDEN ISLAND Dr. Elwood Mead, of the University of California, who is acting in the advisory capacity to the Hawaiian Homes Commission, and who was to have included Kauai in his tour, will not be able to make the propos ed visit according to a letter re ceived by H.
