Ohia Ties will be Freighfed
by Honolulu Captalist.
IIILO, April 30. The Hawaii
Mahogany Lumber Company lias
' arranged with James B. Castle, of
Honolulu, to handle 2,500,000 ties
for the Santa Fe road between llilo
and Southern California ports.
This information came to 4he
Herald yesterday from Honolulu,
and, when asked as to its correct
ness, Manager Harris said: "I re
'fuse either to deny or confirm it. I
have no authority to say any
thing." What steamers or sailing vessels
will be used is not started, but Air
Castle will be the freight contrac
tor. Thiols in line with his policy
for the development of Kona, and
the steamers, probably, will go
from here to Kona for light freight
to be furnished by tho Brunei-pineapple-

Mr. Castle has just acquired, sugar
.and fresh fruits. Kealakekua Bay
was surveyed about a' year ago for
Mr. Castle, and Mr. Hedcmann of

Daniel P. Mumbrue, a tic con
tractor for the Chicago, Milwaukee
and St. Paul railroad, has been in
Hilo within the past week and will
leave the Volcano House today in
company with Manager W. W.
Harris, of tho Hawaii Mahogany
and Lumber Company, for Kona.
There they will inspect (he com
pany's forests, as Mr. Mumbrue is
anxious to see the prospects for
getting ties, of which he wants one
million. His idea is to erect his
own plant as he does in other
places where suitable tie lumber
can bo found; making an arrange
ment with a local company for tho
product of the fofest as it stands.
The company has 112 square miles
of forest on the other side of the
