A good many of the hours of the Senate during the last session of the last Legislature were used in discus sion on the new Diamond Head light house. There was strenuously urged the contention that Mr. Howell, Sup erintendent of Public Works, had raised up for the support of the light a nimsv suiuLuiv Lint. wi"" ''l'l"- over at the first heavy wind. It was solemnly assorted taut the trame or tower as placed was wholly insuffici ent for strength. Some of the re marks were quite warm and with one man particularly the condemnation of Mr. Rowell was frequent and strong as expression oi nu'i uimnuu en the tower. This tower, by the way, is the same as used for lighthouses every where. There are scores of just the same kind precisely on the Atlantic coast. Framework of iron or steel is preferred over the masonry foundation. Stone foundation are being replaced on the New England coast by the metal towers, yet a few of the Senators and a number of the Representatives were confident that Mr. Rowell had made a mistake. After many speeches had been made in the Senate a committee was appointed. It made a solemn and formal report. Following is a copy of the serious document: The item in line 45 is the estimated n mount needed to complete the Dia mond Head lighthouse, including the installation -of the lectric light for same. ,? Your committer have personally in spected' said"nev light house 'now be ing constructed, and consulted mrter .nt - authorities regarding the strength and stability of the structure, which is all of iron above the concrete founda tion and is simply four 4-inch galvan ized iron pipes, in 20-foot lengths, f'A Til tho n-iTk-in,? to thn lierht house proper -in .eet. It i. suitably bracet and abov- this is the superstructure with the lights, 20 feet high. The iron of :he supports is 1-4 inch thick, which i-s cut hv the thread in each ot the joints at least half of its thickness, leaving 1-S inch in thickness at each joint, which would appear to be a weak point in the same. It may, however, be strong enough to support the 15-tons weight of the superstructure and stormy gales while it is fresh and new, but it is in a po sition constantly exposed to the salt spray of the sea, which will sooner or later cut the weak joints of the iron with rust and endanger the safety of the structure with final collapse of the supports. On general principles a lighthouse should be a permanent institution that can be relied upon, with its light al ways on hand, especially in stormy weather. To accomplish this, it should be constructed in the most substantial manner and not in a way to do service for two. three, five or even ten years and then be missing, having collapsed or toppled over. The lighthouse now being construct ed can be made substantial and as per manent as possible by building up a good substantial stone and cement tower from the ground up to the super structure and securely fastening the upper structure to the stonework. It would then be doubly strong, and when the iron pillars become weak from rust the stone tower will, con tinue to hold all firmly in its place. This will require an addition to the original appropriation, which was $10,000. There has already been ex pended for the foundation and tower, tools, etc.. $1,S24.29; for the lantern. $.3,:G1.00, total, $7,350.19; and we are now asked to reappropriate from the unexpended balance to complete the construction and put in electric lights $1,000. which will make the total cost sAmMO. To build up a substantial sfnno tiwvov .-m si j irtrest ed above would require, say $2.."0t additional, or ab:ut ?i ihio ho-iiiip imhouiU already ex pended. It seems at first sight as if this is a large amount to expend in addition to the present outlay on this structure, but if we consider for a moment it .is only a drop in the bucket when com pared with the loss of any one of the ) a rare steamers now coming to this port, as a result of the collapse of the now Diamond Head Lighthouse. We cannot afford to run any chances in such a matter an 1 rely upon a cheap, temporary structure, when we can have something permanent. Your com mittee, therefore, recommend that in addition to the $1,."00 asked, the sum f s .".no be nnnronriated to build a substantial stone tower for sai-. light- house, to be completed before :ie sup- erstructure is finished.
