Ahuktni Landing Can Be Secured
By Government For Shipping
Purposes- Word Brought From
Plantation Directors Ready To
Receive Proposition From the
Territory, Says Kapaa Home
steader , Ahukini landing in Hannmalu Bey,
Kauai, ran be secured by the territor
ial government for shipping purpose,
together with ample land area for ware
houses and wagon road right-of way.
according to statcmcnte made yesterday
to th harbor board by Elmer Cheat
ham, a Kapaa homesteader, who quoted
one of the directors of Lihue planta
tion to that effect.
The prospect of securing these valua
ble right, hitherto a seeming jmpos
ibility, ia expected to change the en
tire plan of the harbor commissioner
with regnrd to the upbuilding of Kapna
a a lit earner landing aite. Superinten
dent of Public Works L. H. Bigelow
was immediately authorised to viait
Kauai and learn first hand whether the
proposal of the Lihue directorate, a
voiced by one of it member, ran be
put throngb.
The board, at its meeting yesterday,
wa prepared to enter into a long dia
uaaioa over the Kapaa proposition, in
asssoch aa Mr. Cheatham waa know a to
hare rome from Kauai to discuss it
with the board and to urge that a
board meeting be held at Kapaa so
that the majority . of homesteader
Could five their views on the subject.
Mr. Cheatham, following the reading
of his letter on the aubjeet, which had
preceded him to Honolulu, said that a
conversation which ha had held the
Bight before aboard the Kauai ateamer
with a director of Uhue plantation
would, ia all probability, pave the way
. to the government 's acquisition of the
Control of the Ahukini landing and
necessary rights of way,
Mr. Cheatham wished to be under

not used the word "roll" in his conver
sation wun regard 10 wnaiever agree
nscnt might be made, whereby the gov
rnmant secured control of the landing,
but said the director put the matter

people ia a way that would open the
aubfect to a series of conferences.
"I also believe from this that the
way ia now open to link up the rail
toads of Lib us and Maker plantation
nd that in a year 'a time Kapaa will
have direet rail communication with
Ahukini landing."
At a meeting of the Kapaa home
teadera held on August 17, they de
aided to ask the harbor board to ho hi
the Kapaa meeting on Kauai instead
of in Honolulu, on the ground that a
better attendance could be hail and the
matter threshed out more intelligently
with the localities clow at hand. Thi
letter was read at the meeting, in which
the matter of inadequate harbor farili
tira for that section t Kauai wa
referred to. Mr. Cheatham's letter
the subject was also read, in which he
proposed that the Inter Island could
handle freight at Kapaa by the use of
lighters at least ten months out or
twelve. He also an il he did nut favor
the expenditure of :t)0.000 for a wharf
at Kapaa, or even half that sum. In
this loiter he suggested that the board
might find a way to open negotiation
to ronnert up the two plantation rail
roads to Ahukini.
