Transcript Dredging—Sandwich Islands The cut on the opposite page shows Hydraulic Dredge deepening the bar at Honolulu Harbor for the Hawaiian Government. This work was done in a very exposed locality, and the material was pumped ashore on to a coral reef, where it was used for filling in and making land for dock and storage purposes. The material was retained by means of a wall built of coral, which was excavated at low water from the coral reef. The material was transported ashore through a pipe line, the outer end of which was floating, as shown in cut, while the inner end was supported by a pile trestle constructed for the purpose. This proved to be a very efficient and successful method for removing the bar and opening the inner harbor to vessels of the deepest draft, which are now enabled to pass in over the bar to the inner harbor and docks, whereas formerly cargoes had to be lightered into the inner harbor. Owing to the heavy ocean swells that prevail on the bar during the greater part of the year, it was necessary to adopt a flexible suction pipe in lieu of the ordinary stiff suction pipe, with rotary cutter. This was successfully done, and enabled the work to go on continuously during the roughest weather. While the material generally handled was coarse gravel and sand, yet many heavy articles of metal and stone, from wrecks, notably a seventy-pound cannon ball, were raised through the pipe line by the powerful centrifugal pump on this machine. The hydraulic dredging method is well adapted to the removal of bars in front of harbors, and has recently come into very general use.
