KUKUIOLONO PARK IS DEDICATED TO PUBLIC

Flag Pole Exercises Mark the Dedication Of Beautiful Park to The Public By Walter D. McBryde.

RACE TRACK IS INCLUDED

A Gift Which Will be long Appreciated by All True Lovers of the Various Kinds of Sport.

The Kukuiolono Park, which was recently dedicated to the public by Walter McBryde, with flag raising ceremonies is a gift which carries more significance than can be realized by a passing thought. It means much as an everlasting stimulous to athletic sports of every discription and is further indication of the thoughtfulness of the donor laboring class, has become a second nature.

The park is situated makai the government road, perhaps a mile, but a splendid approach has been provided over which an auto glides up the glade, with perfect ease. A graded race track 30 ft. wide encircles the park, while the inside is arranged for baseball, football and any other desirable sports. The location of the park may probably lead to a centralization of all sporting events from Makaweli to Koloa, as it is situated at Homestead, a sort of half-way place between the above places.

LAND MATTERS.

All of the interests of the estate of the late L. Ahlo in the rice industry were bought at auction sale on Monday by Jas. F. Morgan, trustee, and have since been incorporated under the name of Kaneohe Rice Mill Co., Ltd., with a capital of $50,000, the incorporators being Arnim Haneburg, W. Pfotenhauer, Geo. Rodiek, August Humburg and P. Bartels.

An agreement of sale has been made by the government with Walter McBryde for the mountain lot of Kukuiolono, in the Kalaheo tract, Kauai. The price is $894, one-tenth deposited on signing of papers, and the purchaser agrees to plant 3000 trees every year for ten years on the land. At the end of that period he is to receive a deed of the lot. The purpose of the agreement is stated to be conservation of the forest and of its water resources.
