This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1913 edition. Excerpt: ...beyond the KAHALUU (upper) village, is the south road to Kailua. All three are good. The upper road passes through numerous other villages, populated by whites, Hawaiians and Japanese, and, mainly in the south end of the district, also by Koreans and Filipinos, most of whom are engaged in coffee and tobacco planting. Some awa is also being planted in recent years. The villages run into each other, so it is dil-ficult to say where one ends and another begins. South of Kahaluu are KAINALIU, (whence a trail leads to the makai village of the samenanie), KONAWAENA and KELAKE KUA villages, forming the central part of Kona. At the former is situated the Weeks garage (livery), at Konowaena is a branch of the First Bank of Hilo, and the Yates garage (livery), and at Kealakekua the upper mill of the Captain Cook Coffee Co., a lower mill which handles both coffee and pineapples being situated makai on the road leading to Napoopoo. At Konawaeana is also Miss Paris' hotel (Rates: $3 a day). Makai hereof a good trail leads to Kaawaloa and a road to Napoopoo. Further south another road leads to Napoopoo, and still further south lie KEEI and HONAUNAU, which is connected with the lower village by a trail. Still further south comes KEOKEA, the headquarters of a tobacco company, with great barns on both sides of the road. A good road runs from Keokea to Napoopoo. From Keohea southward the road traverses wooded and sparsely settled country to PAPA, a small village, whence a road leads to Hoopuloa. Further south a trail leads to Hoopuloa (it is shorter than the main road, but poor). Hence the road strikes southward to Kau, passing on the mauka side a couple of trails leading to the HONOMALINO ranch, and makai trails leading to the beach more
