Start In
Sand dredged from the channel lead
ing into Honolulu harbor is to bo tak
en out to Vfaikiki to form one of the
protective belts upon the emplacements
at Fort De Hussy Walkiki where two
monster guns are to bo erected present
ly for acacoast defense Forty five
thousand cubic yards of sand dredgings
are to bo transported from the Fort
Armstrong sand spit to Do IlUBsy and
thero spread over the great emplace
ments which aro being made the most
powerful of the modern fortifications
under construction by tho war depart
ment of the United States Torcplnco
this sand further dredgings from tho
channel will bo umpcd up and spread
The rnpid transit company has been
awarded the contract to transport these
thousands of tons of sand from the
channel frontage and in order to ob
tain it n spur will bo run from the
present terminus of the Allen street
lino down past the federal immigration
station to Fort Armstrong Tho dredg
ings are to bo deposited on tho sand
reservation on which the war depart
ment Is finishing strong emplacements
for sheltering harbor defense guns and
loaded into cars at that point
Tho emplacements at Waikikl will
themselves each weigh about forty
thousand tons composed of cement
i rmln Tnilroad Bteel and concrete
Tho work of constructing them lias

ing has been heard locally as to when
tho fourteen inch guns aro to be

protecting shields Larger caliber
euns will bo mounted later and thoso
now In place will bo used mainly for
saluting purposes
Fort Armstrong s already an attrac
tive fortification as grass has been
crown all over tho slopo facing tho
sea Passengers on Incoming vessels
aro always interested in this ongH
erccn spot so close to the sea and little
suspect that it shelters dcath dcnling
guns and that its innocent nppearancc
merely masks a plnn of tho war depart
ment to keep hostilo vessels at arms
Torpedo Station
Fort Armstrong hns more than ono
purpose It Is a seacoast defense forti
fication and it is also designed as a
protection to tho torpedo and mino
stations which ore to bo established on
the samo reservation Tho war depart
ment officials at Washington are now
engaged in going over plans for a
wharf to bo constructed nlong tho
channel frontage on the outer end of
tho reservation nnd not far distant
from tho Myrtlo boathousc This wharf
will be used exclusively for the ord
nanco and torpedo station
The wharf will bo largo enough to
accommodato vessols of small size It
is proposed to havo n mine planting
steamer located in Hawaiian waters
exclusively devoted to whatovcr work
may bo required of it in laying mines
The war department is working out
tho plans for tho mining of tho har
bor channel and cntranpe to tho chan
nel and an electric station with con
duits lendlnc to the wntcr is already
boing installed for this purpose This
conduit Bvstcm relates exclusively to
the mine planting operations Tho sys
tem is so arranged that whenever
necessary the harbor can bo mlnod and
connected quickly with tho flro control
from which tho wired conduits run
Control from Diamond Head
Not only will there bo an exclusivo
fire control for torpedoes but the gins
of Fort Armstrong will bo under tho

control thero is sow arranged go that
the mortars of Battery Hnrlow Fort
Ituger may bo fired on orders sent
from this station and the control also
extends to tho fortifications at Fort
Do Itussy nnd from thero to Fort Arm
strong Eventually ns has been des
cribed it will be extended to the forti

twelve inch euns are already mounted
and emplacements aro being built for
two smaller guns near by Tho war
department will also nnd probably
within a year commence tho building
of more fortifications on tho Wnlanno
