Plans for the industrial railroad
on Kauai to serve Kapaa home
steaders are taking shppe quickly
now and some definite develop
ments ate expected within the next
few davs. according to a reptrt at
the capitol building this morning.
Land Commissioner Tucker aid
that J. F. C. Hagen of H. Hack-
feld & C:., agents for Li hue plan
tation, and Frank E. Thompson,
attorney representing the planta
tion, will go to Kauai tonight to
look over the situation there.
Governor Pinkhani said that he
has outlined plans to the planta
tion on which an agreement and
early action may be secured. It
was reported todav that Lihue
directors, after au important meet
ing, are inclined to look upon the
recent developments as pointing
toward a feasible plan for the con
struction of this road.
The details of the railroad
scheme have been much discussed
for several months past and are
rather complex. In fact, two rail
road schemes have been in process
of discussion. One of these is the
plan of Col. Z. S. Spalding of Ma
kee Sugar Company, as outlined
in au interview in the Star-Bulletin
several weeks ago. Under
this plan Col. Spalding would ex
tend the plantation line, which
ships from Kealia, to serve govern
ment and homestead lands. The
other scheme is that of Ltl'e plan
tation to extend its line. Thus
the .government lands may be ap
proached from two almost opposite
directions. It is the Lihne line
that is the subject of local nexotia-
I lion now.
E. M. Cheatham, Fred R.Tracy
and C. Ii. French, homesteaders
in the district needing railroad
service, came to Honolulu and have
had a conference with the gover
nor. They will probably return
tonight. They have nothing to
say for publication.
It is reported that Col. Spalding
called a meeting of cane growers a
week ago and offered new con-,
tracts, to pay $1 per ton for cane
for every cent in the sugar price;
that is, with sugar at four cents,
he would pay $4 per ton for cane.
With two railroads possibly com
peting for shipments and two
plantations available as a cane mar
ket, the outlook for the home
steader in the Kapaa region is ex
pected to brighter materially.
