"The plantation is going to

product thev m a v raise. The
surveyor has just arrived from the
coast and will go right to work in

hoTV long it will take to build the

"The Chamber of Commerce

governor could not law fnllY give
an extension of the lease, for 'bat
purpose, before a certain time p i-

is easv for people to sav that this:

all things must b done according

After the old lease of the Kapaa
lands fell in, Col. Spalding explain
ed, a section of the plantation rail
road was left upon the portion of
the domain reserved for homestead
ing purposes, which lay idle for
some time. The agreement with
the government stipulated for the
extension of the railroad, and as a
railroaJ cannot run itself , the plan
tation was licensed to operate the
line in conjunction with its own
svstem. Besides being of mutual
benefit to the company and the
homesteaders, with rcuard to the
production of sugar cane, the line
will afford an outlet to the sea at
Kealia or Kapu for pineapple an !
