Construction' on the Puukapole and
Olohena roads will start Immediate
ly according to 'the Information giv
en out by the county engineer's
office this morning.
Grading has ulready been started
on tho Olohena road near the Cheat
ham placo and It Is expected to
move tho crusher from Llhue on
Friday. Tho crusher will be set up
at the corner" of the JeiiBen home
stead and should bo In operation
In about a week or ten days after
moving. The first part of tho road
to be constructed will bo the 4,000
feet from tho Jensen homestead to
the Kapaa, Wallua border. When
this Is completed, the work will
continue In tho opposite direction
for about a mile and a quarter.
The crusher will then bo moved
to a point near the reservoir and
the rest of tho road completed from
this spot.
Anyone who has had tho misfor
tune to be forced to travel over tho
present road after a heavy rainfall
will not doubt that this road Is go
ing to bo a boon for tho homestead
ers In this district.
In regard to tho Puukapelo road
according to law It Is necessary that
bids for tho construction must be
called for, but it is doubtful if any
or tho bids will meet the approval
of the board of supervisors and tho
work therefore will 'bo done by the
Tho first part of the work will
be the first mile and half above
the cane, necessitating removing C,
000 yards of earth. There will bo
no macadamizing on this road, grad
ing being tho only work to be done
at present. When this portion Is
completed, another section will be
worked until a total of about six
miles of grading is completed.
This will bring the graded road
about eight miles above the govern
ment road which Is tho worst sec
tion of the road at present.
With this improved road, thoro
is no doubt that travel to Puukapele
and ' Kokee will be stimulated, as
tho main drawback to visiting this
district is the condition of the road.
A forged county warrant was cash
ed at tho Llhue bank early last
mouth and as yet the forger has
not been apprehended. Tho warrant

rant had been cashed but tho en
dorsement did not agree with the
endorsements on previous warrants
to tho same party.
Tho sheriff's office was notified
and they made an investigation and
searched among the cashed war
rants for a handwriting similar to
that on tho forged warrant. Ono
was found taht was thought to bo simil
ar and this person was brought to
the bank. lie was asked to sign tho
forged name and it is alleged that
tho forged endorsement was very
similar to his effort.
Tho bank clerk who caBhed the
forged warrant stated that tho sus
pected man was not the person who
presented It for payment. As there
was not enough evidence to hold
the suspected man, ho was released.
