"How are lots selling. Mr. Desky?" I am not selling lots yet," was the answer. "I have not sold a sinple lot yet. nor will I until the road is entire ly finished and the water laid on." "You can't cot the Government wa ter up here." ventured a member of the party. "What do I want with the Govern ment water. I have my own water works. I own nine-tenths of that stream of water you see runnlnc down the Pauoa valley, a never- falling sup ply in the driest of seasons. This comes from a spring on my land which I have already df veloped into a sup ply sufficient for o.oo people, so my engineers tell me. I have aleady con structed a reservoir at the spring from which ahout a mile of six-inch pipe line will conduct the water to an alti tide of 720 feet above sea level on the heights. There another and larger reservoir will lie made to receive it. from which it will he pumped to the hotel, still higher up, by nit ans of hy draulic rams." W hat do you mean by pumping to the hotel? was asked. Why. I am going to have a hotel lere. The site is already picked out and reserved. And when I say a hotel mean a hotel, not a boarding-house." "What else are you going to have?" "Oh, lots of things. Electric lights and electric street cars, for instance. This is no joke, but said In all serl- qi;sness. The water from my reservoir will furnish me all the power I need to generate electricity for an electric light plant and run a street car line all eround the property. Anil the beauty of it is everything will le on my own land. I don t have to bother about franchises and such things. All these improvements will be finished and In operation before I could get a fran chise In the ordinary way of doing business here." Hut these things cost money, Mr. Desky." "That's true." he replied, "but with money anything can be done. Yes. it has cost $100,000 for the property. The roadway will cost me another ?23.0O0. pipe line and reservoirs $$.00; electric light system about $13.oo. and the electric railway some Sltl.Omj more. You would hardly believe an electric read could be built for that sum. would you? Hut wait till you see mine in operation, and you won't have to wail long, either." "Hut how are you going to get even on all this expenditure?" Well, that s my look-out. I am in vesting my own money. It is not cor poration funds, and there are no stock holders to do any kicking. The land suitable for residence property will be divided into lots of from one-half to ore acre in extent, which will find ready sale at from one to six thousand dollars, according to choice. Right here is two acres that I have been of fered $s.000 cash for. And I refused it, too. Much of the lower land will 1 mane nice 101s wnen me rocKs are cleared off and terraces made. I have more than twice the number of appli cations on file for the choice lots than I shall be able to divide the land Into." After an hour spent In viewing the property, a visit was made to the Pan oa spring and the reservoir already built and full. It is fifteen feet long and twenty-five feet wide by five deep Just above it the bed of the mountain stream has been dammed by a wall of solid masonry so constructed that any water irom smiuen rresiiets win pass around instead of over the reservoir. This little reservoir and dam repre sent an outlay of $1,500 alone. Incidentally, it may be remarked that this latter trip up this most for tile of all Oahu valleys was marred by the horrible condition of the road, which brought into very vivid contrast the way a private individual and the Government does the same work.
