VaILUKU. Sept. 18, The biggest
job in railroad bridge building ever un
dertaken in Hawaii is now In "progress
at Mallko Guuch. Tbe bridge Is the
most important pne on tbe Kabuiui
Railroad extension, which under Su
Hrrintendent J. X. S. Williams Is be;
inc pushed rapidly through to com
It was no small conception of Mr.
Williams this extension into Haiku
and Pauwela of the Kabuiui Railroad.
The rapid development of that region
ly the pineapple Induitry, and the
coming of so many American families
o. take up land and to begin tbe culti
vation of the pint, and to undertake
small farming for the markets, made
the extension of the railroad justifi
able. When the directors looked over
the proposition some little time ago,
lef ore definite action was taken as to
the laying out of the tracks In the
Haiku region, some felt rather doubt
ful concerning the advisability of the
pioject. After Mr. Williams had tak
en the party over the entire route,
and with his engineers had mapped
out the full possibilities for the exten
sion, and after the rich lands of Hai
ku and Pauwela bad been - visited,,
even the most skeptical were convinc
ed that the extensionyuld te a pro
fitable Investment. Tpe. outlay of
something like 1275,000 is consider
able, however. It is estimated that in
threeyears the . output ,o the pine
apple growth will be more than dou
bled. It la about: 140,000 cat es for
this season, and these . - are now
brought by the teams or auto truck to
the Pala depot, then shipped by the.
railroa'd to KahuluL
Terminus Near Cannery. .
For the present the termlnusf the
ey tension will be at a point below the
Haiku cannery, though the. line "is sur
veyed much further; In fact, ; the offi
cials know just where they would lay
the line or many mtyes yet, '1f J.n ere
should 'be a need-of carrying.the rail
road further than Haiku. I;
v The present plans call for an exten
sion of seven miles from the Pala ter
minus. .! This seven miles is well under
way, f and it ... is confidently expected
that ; the work will be completed by
the first of February, provided; of
course, there are no delays in the ar
rival of the material for the finishing
of the- job. - '
The cuts are being rapidly dug out;
and the material used for fills up

The most picturesque part of the
big undertaking Is the construction of
Uie Mallko Bridge, which is by far the
biggest thing in the bricge- line in Ha
waii, and one of the most exacting
pieces of work ever undertaken in the
"territory up to the present time; ' It is
h&rd to believe that the new bridge

as much as eighty barrels of cement

interruption, he begins to see how it
is possible to use such a large amount
cf material in the construction.
The cpan of tbe bridge will te 780
feet and the height above the bed t
Maliko 230 feet The distance across
the big chasm looks great, and the
height to which the towers must rise
can be imagined, as one looks down
ir.to the gulch. But the real greatness
of the undertaking does not ully im
press the visitor until he has gone
down to the bottom and looked up at
the walls that rise almost perpendicu
larly. v To realize that some day .the
ttains will rumble over the very point
where he Is standing, on a bridge
built high in air, does call upon the
imagination. Admiration Is at once
e cited for drector the Kahului Rail
road that they were willing to put so
much money and effort into the under
taking ,and for ' the engineers who
have worked out the plan and dared
to carry.it into execution. ;
The piers are sunk some thirty feet
into the ground and are, built if p to the
point; where they are to receive., the
steel superstructure In the ' shape of
pyramids of concrete. There are twenty-one
of these In all, andlthey-are
ten feet; square at the 'base The
form's are placed in the ground and
the mixture of concrete, sand " and
gravel is made at the top of the gulch,
230 feet above. This r is then shot
down a pipe line until it reaches the
form where it is to.beet-: In case the
square that; is to be filled Is too" far
away,. so that the mixture will not
reach, it is caught In a box and then
carried ; by wheelbarrows and dumped
Into the big, form. A small donkey
engine is kept busy lifting up the dirt
and stones out of one of the big holes
and at the same time the hole next to
it is being filled up with, concrete. The
dry weaker was a great boon to,; the
undertaking. - . Had a .freshet come
down Maliko at any time during the
construction of thesi ; concrete piles,
there would have been great damage,
and It is possible that .the work would
have had to be done all over again ip
theportions that were, uncompleted.

; No little danger was attached to the
undertaking. v The excavation had to
be large enough to admit material for
a solid block, in some instances; twen

It is a; wonder that "they, were not, all
killed. vyOnly one man was' hurt, .and
he ,had his" legs bruised. The ambu

HUNDREDS OF JAPANESE
SMUGGLED INTO COUNTRY
Four Firemen on One Steamer
Plead Guilty of Offense
TACOMA, (Wash.), August 31.
The steamship Titan brings news from
Yokohama of the discovery of exten
sive smuggling operations, whereby
Japanese firemen on transpacific lin
ers smuggle their countrymen Into
American ports as stowaways.
j Four firemen on the Japanese steam
ship Chlyo Jdaru were taken teTore
the Japanese authorities and charged
with attempting to smuggle twelve
Japanese into the United States.
The steamship company was inter
ested in obtaining a conviction, as the
smuggling of passengers means a re
duction .in passenger receipts. The
This method has been used most sue
cessfnlly in the" States. The almost
perpendicular walls on the sides of
the gulch made this easy method of
handling concrete possible.
On both sides there is a loBg lad
der, but it was a wearisome job Vor the
workmen to go up and down this even
once every day, so a cable car was
rigged up. and men and materials go
up and down on what tbe engineers
call their "scenic railroad." It is a
rather startling experience to ride up
and down on that car, and one keeps
thinking what a tumble it would be, if
the cable snapped, v
; , Five hundred tons of structural
steel and iron are on , their way for the
bridge work on the extension. Anoth
er bridge some 100 feet high will have
to be built beyond '. the big Maliko
bridge. This will be a small task

New Railroad 'CuL "
The new railroad "cut across the
road at Hamakuapoko is just belonw
the house. ofX'W. S. 'Nlcoll. , At this
point there is somewhat of a cut. Fur
ther over toward Haiku one cut is 45
hfeet deep., There arei several big fills,
one of which is about 1500 feet long.
Few realize the extent of the work
involved In. building ; this extension.
The work . has gone quietly along,, but
the ..results are- already showings up
big.' Tlere isf little;, doubts that when
the railroad Is complete many 'people
will take' the train just for the sake of
seeing the newly developed country of
thej pineapple Tegldn. The extension
wllL of course, be Of infnlte value-to
the. homestead region, and be a great
factor also in developing further this
heretofore neglected-portion of Maui.
"The whole development of the Hai
ku and Pauwela homestead lands was
made possible by n exchange, that
was arranged through the interest in
the proposition taken, by the late Hon.
H. P. Baldwin of Maui and Governor
Walter F. Frear ot Honolulu: The ar
rangement was that 1200 acres of land
no longer useful for cane could be put
into pineapples, and 00 acres of a dry
and barren tract, useless, for all other
purposes, -could bev turned into splen
did cane laud by' the bringing in a new
ditch above the oldfiields. The gov
ernment was the : gainer and) so, too,
was the plantation that gave up the
pineapple lands. ; The people of Maul
have' been decidedly f benefited by ; the
development of twa. large - tracts of
idle - land, the employment of many
more people, the extension of the rail
road,' and, best of all, by the coming
of a score or more of splendid Ameri
cam families. ..,.., . ,

this country, v However, they are re
garded with great "terror ln Europe,
and are only used as a last resort. An
Englishman runs an elevator as If he
were moving a barn and only the leis.
ure class has time to ride in them.
Elevators have increased the Joy
of the American businessman by tak-
ing him above the fly line, the dust
line, the noise line, the book agent line
and the skyline. They are almost the
only free thing left in America. The
New Yorker who hasn't the price of a
ticket to Coney Island need never de
spair so long as he can climb on an
elevator and travel so high in two
minutes that he can see half way back
his old western home.
Japanese newspapers reporting tlrs
case estimate that between 300 and
400. Japanese are smuggled into the
United States each year.
Twelve Japanese in question were
discovered after the Chicago Maru Had
been at sea a few days en route to
Tacoma and were transferred to the
Mexico Maru, outward bound, when
the Chicago Maru arrived at Victoria.
The four firemen pleaded guilty to
the charge against them. They bad se
