Superintendent R. W. Filler of
the Kahului Railroad Company
has tendered his resignation and
tho same has been accopted to take
effect at a later date.
Mr. Filler has hnd charge of the
Kahului Railroad for eight years
and has increased the value of the
Company from, sixty thousand dol
lars to half a million while the
amount of shipping on the road
has increased at even a more rapid
rate. The success of tho Company
is very largely duo to his intimate
knowledge of every branch of the

Few men possess tho energy and
close application that Mr. Filler
has Bhown during all tho years ho
has boon in Kahului and no man
could bo missed as much as ho
where ho has becomo so thoroughly
a part of tho place.
