Bigelow Inspects
New Hanalei Wharf
Lyman H. Bigelow, superintendent
of public works made a flying visit
to Kauai last Friday, coming In on
the Claudlne in tbo morning and re
turning the same evening. The prin
cipal object of Mr. Bigclow's visit
was to Inspect the work at the Hana
lei wharf and he reported that he
was satisfied with the progress made.
The work on the wharf is being
done by Coney and Morris, a, new
concrete deck being laid on the wharf.
The contractors experienced a little
difficulty at the start owing to labor
trouble, but as soon as they got rid
of one of the men, whom It was al
leged was an agitator, the trouble
was soon over.
Tho construction of the Kapaa wat
er works was also considered by Mr.
Bigelow while hero and he made a
short trip of inspection to the spring
that will be used to supply tho water
for Kapaa. Nothing can be done on
this work until tho plans are drawn
up and approved by the board of pub
lic works. This will tako considerable
time and the work cannot be expected
to start for at least two or three
Mr. Bigelow did not have an oppor
tunity to Inspect tho recent survey
of the Puukapela road but he did dis
approve of having the work dono un
der any sort of agreement where the
person in charge worked on a com
mission basis.
John Padella and George Souza. Por
to Iiican youngsters employed by the
Grove Farm plantation, stepped off
with the wrong foot, as It wore, on
July Four.th. Everybody was going to
Makawell to seo the gomes between
the westenders and the soldiers from
Honolulu. John and George both
wanted to be counted among those
present and enjoy the event, so they
purloined an old truck belonging to
Grove Farm and started west.
Inexperience hampered them some
what but It was not before tho pair
reached Koloa that their conveyance
began to balk and foam at tho mouth
and finally stopped for want of wulor
and breath.
In tho meantimo tho car was missed
and a search was made and tho boys
were found at Koloa and brought back
to LIhue and justice.
On Thursday the pair came up in
tho Lihue district court before Judge
Hjorth; they pleaded guilty and were
sentenced to pay a fine of $100 each
besides cost of ?1. Not having a
banking account or ready cash, both
offenders are at Hotel Montgomery
In tho tender care of Kalel for the
next three months. Thus ended an oth
erwise pleasant outing and the boys
are sadder but wiser youths.
Dr. H. P. Choy, recently appointed
as government dentist of Kauai by
Dr. Trotter of tho territorial board of
health, arrived last Wednesday to take
up his new duties. Ho is at pre'sent
stationed at tho Kapaa school but
will later travel to all schools of this
Island. He takes the place of Dr.
Southwell, who recently resigned to
practice in Honolulu.
All dental equipment now at In
spector Cook's office at Waimea will
bo removed to tho Kapaa school this
week and Kapaa school children need
ing attention to their teeth will be
attended to as soon as the necessary
equipment can bo installed.
Dr. Choy has been practicing den
tistry successfully in Honolulu since
191S. Ho in a Honolulu boy and ob
taired his D. D. degree at the Univer
sity of Denver, class of 1018. He will
also open an office In Kapaa and en
gage In private practice after giving
the necessary tlmo to his government
Owing to somo technicality of tho
law, the board of supervisors are un
able to let the contract for tho Olo-j
hena road to George Mahlkoa, as it
was necessary that the county do the
work on tho road.
Mahlkoa was appointed foreman of
the work, which will start Just as soon
as the crusher and other equipment
can be moved to Kapaa.

A Dodge car was almost totally
wrecked last Tuesday when It collid
ed with the heavy concrete culvert
at the top of tho hill Just above the
Wailua flats. Tho car was bound to
ward Kapaa and according to the story
told by tho occupants, tried to pass
another car going in tho samo direc
tion. The occupants of the wrecked
car claim that tho driver of tho oth
er car was a novlco and was swerv
ing all over tho road, forcing them In
to the ditch and against the culvert.
According to the police, tho driver
of the other car was an experienced
chauffeur and that from tho indica
tions of the wreck the smashed car
was being driven at a terrific rate of
speed and tho driver probably lost
control whtlo attempting to pass tho
other car.
All passengers In tho wrecked car

miracle, as tho car was almost a com
plete wreck.

the next. Parking reservations are al
ready being made for next year.

Tho shark fishing party at tho
breakwater last Tuesday was quite
a successful affair, netlng two 8-foot
sharks ami one 10-foot one. All three
sharks put up quite a battle and the
fun was fast and furious.
As Is generally the enso with a
fishing party, tho biggest one got
away. The first shark to bo hooked
was apparently tho biggest of the
lot and when the fishermen tried to
drag him upon the rocks ho broke tho
hook and made his escape.
Jack Coney superintended tho op
erations and it must bo sukl that he
handled things in a workmanlike manner.
Waimea Bank Clerk
Held For Grand Jury
Shlgc Akahane, who was charged
with embezzlement of $520 by the
Bank of Bishop, Waimea, plead guil
ty In Judge Hofgaard's district court
last Thursday morning and was com
mitted to the grand Jury.
Akal.ano did not waive examina
tion and Th. Brandt, the manager
of the hank, was put on the stand
and testified that Akahane admitted
falsifying the accounts to him when
confronted by the depositor from
whose account the money was tak
Evldenco was brought out during
the trial tho money was used by
Akahanu to help, pay some debts
of his father's, who Is now In Jap
an, Uki boy agreeing to pay the
father's share. Evidently his salary
would not cover the burden and he
found It necessary to get money in
some othor way.
His method of operating entailed
considerable booking to kecp the
accounts straight, but even his sys
tem was not proof against the check
system maintained by tho bank.
Akahane will be brought before
tho grand Jury and If a true bill Is
found against him he will probably
be tried in the October term of

Wailua and Kawailoa
Lots May be Opened
Considerable discussion has beon
going on in the Lihue district In re
gard to petitioning tho land commis
sion to open up lots on the Lihue side
of the Wailua river Just above the
Sahr house and also to open up beach
lots on the beach near the Lihue dairy
which is known ns Knwalloa.
According to J. M. Lydgatu, local
land agent, it Is necessary that a pe
tition of at least twenty-five names
be submitted to the land com
m'sslon to have the commission con
nlder the proposition of opening up
these lands for sale.
The lots on the bluff above tho
Wailua river would be ideal Jots for
homes, us this Is one of the most
beautiful spots on the fslnnd. It Is
proposed to ask the commission to
open up a strip wide enough o:i each
side of the road that goes mauka at
the Wailua bridge. With the enlarge
ment of the Knpaa waterworks that Is
Lelng planned, the pipe line could bo
easily extended from the end of tho
present line which Is at tho Hills res
idence, to the so lots across the river.
Tho beach lot3 at Kawailoa would
also bo a boon to the salaried man
on Kauai as there are very few spots
whero a person of ordinary means
may purchase a beach lot. This beach
is said to bo a very good one, being
used now quite a bit by swimming
