Graphic Acconot of the Flood In
SEVERAL BRIDGES SWEPT AWAY
Nearly.Two Inches of Rain In One
Hour People Fled for Their
Lives-Water On All Lowlands.
(Special Correspondence from Hana-
For a week all this section has been
deluged with rain. At Eleele 1 inches
of -water fell in one hour.
The climax came at midnight, March
26. The bridge at Hanapepe, the new
bridge at Lawai and the three or four
new ones built on the road being con
structed north of Koloa, whica is a
short cut from Lawai to Lihue, were
The Waimea bridge is damaged not
passable, but not carried off. In Wai
mea the water rose over all the low
land, coming into Mr. Hofgaard's store.
In Koloa it was the same, flooding all
the low land and rising high enough
to submerge the bullock carts in the
plantation corral. At Lawai, Wahi
awa and all the above places, rice suf
fered more or less and in some places
Hanapepe had no immunity from
the torrent. Water rose about nine
feet, and all one could hear above the1
pouring floods, was the Japanese or
Chinese saying, "Too muchey pilikia,"
with a prolonged, voluoninous em
phasis' on the "too." Numerous lan
terns were seen, above the surface of
the flocd lighting the refugees to plains
of afGi.y Now and thn a pig went
down the stream, and an other pig with
a rope around its hind leg and the
owner at the other end of the rope,
went less easily to higher ground. One
Portuguese was rudely awakened from
his deep slumbers, and jumped out of ;
bed into a foot of water on his floor. !
His chickens were already among
the lamented and his cow had to "be
driven to higher ground. The water
rose two feet high in some houses anil
people had to' 'wade -waist deep to get
out. It rose to ithe steps of the teach
er's cottage and within four inches of
the floor of ".lie school house. Here and
there fences and outbuildings are car
ried eff, and the remaining ones are
loaded with weeds.
The Hanapepe bridge was made of
heavy timbers and when the water rose
to it a mass of rushes and debris was
collected. Against this the water press
ed and rose uritil the bridge gave way.
As soon as the bridge broke the water
fell 18 or 20 inches. I am told that
the bridges at Waimea, Hanapepe and
Wailua were carried away some 17
years ago. Since the Hanapepe bridge
costing about $S,000, was built in 1SS5,

times, and in one case was six inches
over the floor.
From this disaster a few points are
worth noting, for the construction of a 1
new bridge. It should be raised some j
two feet and then the lower timbers
would be above high water, the
substructure should offer as little re
sistance to water as possible; the ap
proaches should be as low as the im
mediate grade to the bridge would per
mit, in order that the flood water might
have extra room for escape. The
bridge could be strengthened for these
extreme occasions by running cables,
possibly old steam plow cables, to the
banks and there anchor them m ex
cavations filled with sufficient rock. I
believe this simple addition would have
saved Hanapepe bridge and probably
Well In Kewalo.
McCandless Bros, have just finished
in Kewalo, back of the Old Plantation,
an artesian well for E. Peck & Co., the
draymen. The well is of a 10-inch bcre
and something over 200 feet in depth.
The flow is a foot above the surface,
supplying an enormous amount of wa
ter every 24 hours. This is in every
way o e of the most satisfactory pieces
of work of the well 'boring firm. E.
S Peck & Co., will now soon remove their
stables to their new land and will, as
mentioned some time ago, supply cot
tages for their employes.
National Hand Funeral.
The National band-was at the head
cf a funeral procession yesterday after
noon. The dead man was C. K. Wilio-
kai. He pased away at Waikiki on the
night of the 31st inst. The cause of
death was dropsy, as reported to the
Board of Health. Wiliokai had been a
well known Hawaiian and a prominen
member of the band. Besides playing
an instrument he was a splendid bass
singer and his services were always in
demand with quintette clubs. Wilio
kai has not been in ..the best of hearth
since his return from the States. :
The Intter-Island Co.'s steamer Waia
leale had a big passenger list when she
glided out the channel for Oahvx porta
yesterday morning. Amongst those
aboard were a large number of dele
gates to the Mormon church conference
to be held at Laie during next week.
This sect, is of Salt Lake connection or
branch. In Utah these conferences,
iieicl twice a year spring and fall are
iemarkable gatherings. At Laie there
will be preaching and addresses from
the prominent men of the church in
Hawaii. In the Mormon faith the eld
ers are in the habit of offering from the
pulpit hints on the economies of life
and it is not unlikely that the delegates
to Laie will be advised on farming,
The Nominal Consideration Figure
Up 4 gain.
It will be remembered that the S. S.
China, before securing Hawaiian regis
tration, was sold to Colonel Macfar
laine for the nominal sum of 5 shillings.
Immediately a mortgage for a heavy
amount was filed. The Government
claimed that the stamp fee for filing
the deed should be a percentage on
something like the value of the prop
erty and the matter was carried into
the Courts. Mr. Macfarlane won, the
judges refusing to go behind the bill of
sale made by the owners of the S. S.
China to the Hawaiian citizen.
Now there has grown out of this
China transaction just what represen
ta'..es of the Government urged in the
lawsuit. A few days ago at the record
office in the Judiciary Building there
was offered a deed for $1 and a "mort
gage back" for $1,200. The Government
insists that the $1 is a fictitious valua
tion and that the fee for placing the
deed on record must "be a proper per
centage of the actual worth of the
property changing hands. The parties
to the sale and purchase say that the
value they have agreed upon as shown
in the deed is correct for all legal pur
poses. .Another suit will be instituted. The
Government officials believe that the
S. S. China and the real estate case
differ and if the Courts say no will

eral farming and the land laws. The

Reported Highway Robbery,
Some of the natives arriving by the

story to the effect that a highway rob
bery had been committed in desperate
fashion in South Kona, near the settle
ment of Hookena. The report was that
a Japanese known to be carrying a
large sum of money was followed on
the road by several Hawaiians and was
waylaid, relieved of his mony, beaten
and left for dead. The Marshal had not

in the Foreign Kindergarten, many

congratulation in the persistency with
which the Portuguese children main

the remarkable increase of attendance
of the little Japanese.

Tom her recent illness as to visit

Some new committee appointments

added to the anticipated gladness of
Easter in several of the kindergartens
yesterday morning. In all of them the
teachers have been developing by
means of stories and songs and plays
the Easter thought of the awakening
of sleeping things butterflies, birds
.d flowers. Yesterday the celebrations
dealt with Easter emblems,-
In Miss Snow's room 'the little
Chinese children hunted for eggs that
had been hidden away, and as they
found the gaily colored eggs, they
placed them in a large nest in the mid
dle of the room. Then after the bliss
ful indulgence in orange-water and
bananas, came the ceremony of the
good-bye, hand-shaking, which left an
egg in each child's hand. It must be
added that out on the play-ground
some of the children enjoyed hard
boiled duck-eggs as a later course cS
the repast. Every face was radiant
with joy and the twelve visitors found
the occasion most enjoyable.
In the Japanese Kindergarten mat
ters were arranged somewhat diffe-r-

each child had a nest all its own. In ;
the Hawaiian room a characteristic j
touch was added to the hunt for candy

Kindergarten not eggs but bags of
candy rewarded the hunters, and tiny
bouquets of carnations or roses decor
ated each plate for all sat down at
long tables for .their Easter cake.
Miss Alexander had no festivity for
the Foreign Kindergarten, since many
of them had been ill and the Portu
guese Kindergarten will celebrate
Easter next week.
All the kindergartens closed fcr the
Easter recess of one week.
An Official Inspection.
W. E. Rowell, Superintendent of Pub
lic Works, left Honolulu early yester
day morning for an official visit of
three days to flood devastated regions
between Kaneohe and Waialua. It has
been reported that along the road indi
cated 16 bridges have been wrecked.
Mr. Rowell will report on Monday, if
he can on that day compile the notes
made while absent. He will 03 well
submit rcommendatlons. "Jim" Olds
was in town yesterday from Kaneohe.
Mr. Olds has bv-cn on this Island since
1S4S. During all these years he has Been
no such storms as those of the past

Railway Bridges and Line.
It is understood that as a result of
observations, taken after the recent
general storm on the island, Mr. Klfi:e-
gel, chief engineer of the Oahu Rail
way -and Land Company, will run some
new route lines and revise some bridge
plans. There will be an especially cans--fill
investigation between Waialua an.d
Kahuku. The Waimea gulch has al
ways been a problem. Now the water
has made a stronger stiowing there
than ever known before. For this rea
son some important changes will bo
made in the vicinity of the gulch. Such
a storm that of last week would
have carried away some of the line if
the road had been in operation on tho
survey first made.
Repairing Damage to System lly
Andrew Brown, Superintendent of
Water Works, reports that the damago
to the system by the flood of last week
while considerable, was not so grext aa
people might suppose. Mr. Brown, and
his assistant J. Little, were on guard
at the reservoirs in Nuuanu valley each.
evening during the heaviest rains. Ono
of the big ponds was injured and this
broken wall has been repaired But for
prompt and efficient advance meas
ures of precaution, one or more of the
reservoirs might have broken badly.
In that case the flood volume would
have been much increased. 'There was
slight damage near Luakaha. In Ma-
;kiki the small screening plant was ren-
dered incapable for several days. Only
.yesterday the work of clearing It was
completed. Tons of stones had been
washed down from above. The re-
servoir at Makiki was handled so that
there was no overflow from it. The
flood in that vicinity was down he
stream bed an was not harmful to tho
water system. Mr. Little, the new as
sistant of the superintendent, had a
fine initiation during the-storm period.
. He was on one job for three nights and
three straight times found his work
undone during his absence.
