Kipapa Street in central Oahu and its beginnings, 1912.

Kipapa Street Goes to Lord Young.

Last Saturday, the selection was opened, for Kipapa Street, which is ten miles and a half long.

Lord Young, $98,500; A. A. Wilson, $105,297; J. H. Wilson and Linc McCandless, $119,358; Honolulu Draying Co., $131,216. So Lord Young was the one with the low bid and to him went the job to build the road. Lord Young stated that Kipapa Street will be done like King Street with bitumen and that it will be finished along with Leilehua Road, on April 15, 1915.

Here is the question. Who will be the laborers who construct the road; will it perhaps also be Asian laborers like he is using in Hilo? Let us wait, and we shall see how it all unfolds.

[Overall, this is just a regular news article, but the question raised in the last paragraph is interesting.]
