At a meeting of the stockholders of the

proved which will result in the transfer
of the dock nnd the corporation's liabili

action was taken pursuant to an under

What Mr. Scott Says.
J. A. Scott was seen by a TuiutlNit rep
resentative yesterday and asked if he had
anything to say on railroad legislation.
"Neither the Hilo Electric Light Co.,
the Hilo Sugar Co., nor any of their
officers had anything to do with the
introduction of Senate bill No. 155
dealing with railroads, nor are they in
any way interested in its passage. I also
know that neither the Sprcckels nor Mr.
Irwin were interested in having such a
measure introduced. From what I can
sec, as amended by the Judiciary com
mittee, Which takes the arbitrary power
of vetoing Ixntd issues out of the Superin
tendent of Public Works, I believe the
bill is n good one and should become a
law. To me the sole object of the bill
seems to be to simplify the laws relating
to the acquirement of rights of way.
"I wish to say too, that I have not been
fighting the Hilo-Kohala railroad, nor
attempting to injure their interests in any
shape nor manner. I would only be too
glad to have railroad communication
completely around the Island. It would
be a great help to the city of Hilo and
the entire Island."

Hare Narrow Escape
At Laupahoehoe last week the Captain,
Purser and crew of the Hawaii, bad a
narrow escape from drowiulug. The sea
was running heavy when Captain Bennett
and Purser O'Hrien with four of the crew
put off for the shore. They pulled along
alright until they came close In. A big
breaker capsized the boat, turning her
upside down with O'Brien underneath.
After a terrific struggle OUIrien, got out
of his dentil trnn mil v In h lctirwlrr.il
about by the immense breakers. All he
cuuiu no was 10 iry 10 Keep tns neau
above water, and hope the breakers would
carry him to dry land. Once he was
landed 011 the rocks only to be dragged
back by the waves. Finally he was
thrown upon the beach unconscious.
The Captain fared the same way but not
so badly. On the shore they were taken
in hand by people who had seen the boat
capsize aiid were brought around alright.
They were able to resume their posts of
duty the same day.

A Lawyers Opinion of It Compared
With Present I.un.
Senate. Bill No 155, a proposed new law
relating to the construction of railways is
not such a scarecrow as some seem to
think," said n member of the local bar to
a Tkiiiunu representative yesterday.
"The law as proposed in the Senate is
considered the best law by legal writers
on eminent domain. Under it the right
of all parties are belter safeguarded, and
compensation for lands used by railroads
is determined before jossc8sl6n is ob
tained. "The worst feature in the bill or prob
ably the only bad feature, is that requir
ing the consent of the Superintendent of
Public Works before n railroad may issue
bonds. r sec the Judiciary Committee
has recommended that this be stricken
"As to the time required to settle right
of way differences under the new law,
this feature can scarcely be a burdensome
one. The railway corporation can make
all who arc interested in lands thrnuob
J which it proposes to run, defendants in
unc aim. 1 111s, 01 course, applies only to
residents of the same judicial circuit. If
the public Interest demands it the law
j provides foi special sessions of Court. A
I right of way case might be of sufficient
importance to' require a special term and
"Under tle proposed law, 'should any
defendants appeal, or ask for new trial,
the railroad is not compelled to wait for
final determination of the case. It can
proceed with construction at once by de
positing the nmoutit of the judgement
verdict and giving good bonds.
"The present law provides first for nn
agreement lietwcen the parties; this fail
ing, two arbitrators nre nppoiutcd; these
failing, a third arbitrator is called In:
then provision is mnde for opplication to
a Justice. of the Supreme Court, who may
appoint an arbitrator to determine the
value of tlic land.
"Under the proposed new law the rail
way corporation begins proceedings in
the Circuit Court when unable to agree
with the land owner on value of lands.
Upon the filing of the first verdict of a
jury provision is made for the road to cu
ter upon grading."

Where it Originated.
Attorney F. M. Hatch who is iu the
city on business, and who is 'in close
touch with matters in the Legislature,
was asked by a Tribunk representative
what he tlfought of the proposed new
law relating to railroad construction. He
said, "I have understood that the bill was
drawn up to benefit projected railroad
enterprises. It is somewhat generally
understood in Honolulu that tile bill was
drawn up at the direction of the promo

object was to simplify and make more
expeditious the methods of securing
rights of way and of determining the
