macadamized and roll-l for the entire;
distance, and Honolulu topIe will
have a scenic road of even more lieati-:
ty than that of the Pali, which has not
cost them a cent."
"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

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.
