NO BREAKWATER MEANS LOSSJTO SHIPPERS. Board of Trade Make Detailed Report to Engineer Slattery Hilo Bay Deepest Harbor and Largest Area of Anchorage in Territory Loss Sustained By Absence of Hilo Breakwater. In response lo the inquiry made by Lieut. J. K. Slattery, Corps of Engineers, U. S. Army, who visit ed Hilo a few wasks ago for the purpose of preparing the prelimin ary surveys of the proposed Hilo Breakwater, the Board of Trade of Hilo have prepared an elaborate statement giving an estimate of the increased cost of shipping and loss to shippers by reason of the absence of such breakwater. All of this information is now in the hands of Lieut. Slattery at Honolulu, who has the breakwater project under consideration and who is preparing estimates as to cost of construction of such a pro tecting wall across Hilo Bay, which figures and recommendations he will forward when completed to the Chief of Engineers, War Depart ment, for an official report to Con gress this winter. In addition to tables showing the imports and exports, the number, tonnage and draughts of vessels arriving and departing for the past year, a committee of the Board of Trade also went into the subject of the area to be comprehended within such a breakwater. A sketch of the proposed sea wall, beginning at a quarter of a mile east of Cocoanut Island and extending to the whist ling buoy, accompanied the report which has been forwarded to Lieut. Slattery. The Board recommend that the breakwater be so construct ed as to include the so-called "pocket" or deep depression with in the bay, which would almost double the available anchorage of the harbor. It is also claimed that by including the deep "pocket" within the scope of the breakwater, the shipping would be protected from the winds and high seas which come from the north. It is understood that Lieut. Slat tery approves of the construction along the lines indicated. By the adoption of wider harbor scheme, it is maintained the breakwater can be built practically in shallow water and at a nominal cost. The report of the Board of Trade in substance, is as follows: Vessels arriving in the port of Hilo are compelled to stay here three days to three weeks, about half of which time is lost on ac count of rough weather. This time could be saved if we had proper protection from rough seas, which would result from the construction of a breakwater. The port of Hilo is the largest port in the Territory of available anchorage and deep enough to accommodate the largest ship afloat and can be entered either by night or day. Upon the completion of the Panama Canal, Hilo will be a port of call and probably a coaling station for the various steamers bound to and from the Canal Zone. As to the future possibilities of this port in the event of the con struction of a breakwater, we beg to .say that in the table .submitted to you we have figured only on the sugar actually shipped from here during the year 1904, whereas with the completion of the breakwater and a railroad running north, which would naturally follow, we could increase the outgoing sugar from 68,000 tons to fully 150,000 tons, basing this upon the follow ing: Upon the completion of the Ko hala Ditch, now under construc tion, the Kohala District will in crease their annual yield of sugar from their present output of 10,000 tons to ,10,000 tons, and the yield of the llamakua District will be increased from their present output ui iuuu luin iu yj,uuu u.iH'j un reason of larger acreage under culti vation, till 01 which will probably be shipped through Hilo instead of being sent direct. In our communication to you dated June 22nd of this year, this Board failed to include the yield of sugar for the Kau District. This amounts to 18,000 tons and if ship ped through this port would bring our outgoing sugar up to 168,006 tons. At present we are shipping about 60,000 bunches of bananas every year, whereas hid we proper protec tion from the rough weather, wharves would be built and steam ers would call at Hilo permitting us to raise and ship a very much larger quantity. Since you have left Hilo we have 'ascertained that there is plenty of rock available in the near vicinity to build the breakwater. About one mile distant from town there is a flow of lava from five to twenty feet in depth covering an area of about 200 acres. The Hilo Rail road have tracks running almost to this flow and it is described as be ing in three layers, the first layer being soft, the second layer being sufficiently hard to be hammer dressed, and the third layer being as hard as flint, The enclosed estimate of loss to shipping and shippers is based on the actual number of vessels enter ing and the actual amount of incom ing and outgoing freight for the year 1904, and is, to our minds, a very conservative one. We have not based our figures on any prob able increase in the future which would amount to fully 50 per cent. The proposed breakwater would do much to increase property values in Hilo and the surrounding country and in every way tend to build up this Island in a commercial sense. Touching on the item of $30,000 loss to plantations, plantation land ings, property and lumber yards adjacent to the beach, is a very con servative estimate inasmuch as it includes loss to plantations by not being able to rapidly receive incom ing freight and ship outgoing sugar, damage done to plantation landings, damages to property, lumber yards, etc., by reason ofhigh seas.

Yes, for the following reasons: 1st All the plantations outside of Ililo bay have to ship their sugar and receive their sup plies at rocky landings on the wind- ward side of the island where the sea is often so rough that loading and unloading is impossible for sev eral days or a week, thus delnying the ships that may be loading 111 Hilo bay. 2nd This condition leads to great uncertainty of ship ments with consequent uncertainty as to the time of marketing. 3rd The plantations are put to the cost of maintaining the landings, nml of warehousing the sugar until it can be shipped. 4th The railway can handle the sugar cheaper than does the steamship company. "Would it cause these planta tions to ship a greater amount of their product through Hilo than they now do?" The construction of the Kohala and Hilo railway will not nfiect the shipment of sugar from those plantations which now ship through Hilo, for the reason that their entire product is now shipped through this port. It would, however, add to the num ber of plantations so shipping. At present all the plantations lying be tween Hakalau, on the north, and Olaa and Puna, ou the south, ship through Hilo. With the comple tion of the railroad there would be added to these all those plantations and mills lying between Haktilau and Kohala, with the possibility that those in Kohala might also ship some of their product through Hilo instead of sending it direct. The rate per ton on sugar and mer chandise from and to those planta tions now shipping through Hilo by the local steamship company, is $1.60 per ton. "Could the plantations ship their sugar to Hilo as cheaply by such a railroad, as they now do by sea?" We cannot say whether the rate would be any less by railroad than by sea from those plantations now shipping through Hilo, but the rate from those plantations north of Ha kalau, which send their product through Honolulu, would be very much cheaper if sent through Hilo by rail. The present rate by steamer to Honolulu ranges from $2.50 to $3.10 per ton, while the rate by rail to Hilo would be from $1.50 to $2.25 per ton.
