Salt production, 1869.

[Found under: “LOCAL NEWS: Oahu.”]

Salt Storehouse.—We’ve seen makai of Kakaako in Honolulu nei, a huge wooden Structure is being constructed by the King [Kamehameha V], and the great riches that will be stored in that building is salt. This is the salt that now stands near the banks of the salt ponds. The past few days it has been drizzling a bit, and it would be best if it [the salt] was stored in a safe location.
