Richard Hauling Davis, always at
the very front, has already
sent back to us an account of some
of the hardships now being endured
by the coi respondents in the far
east of the never ending toiling
up hills to those little ten shops
of Tokyo; of the incessant sipping
of tea to the accompaniment of the
shnperings of the little slant eyed
hantltuaiiiens; of men who never
did an bout's tailoring in all their
lives sitting for hours at a time in a
cramped, cross legged position on
the Hour during a long Japanese
mcnl, sweetmeats when 'one is ac
customed to eating meats, aiu'l vice
verso. Mr. Davis has told of all
this in a manner to start the tears
Of the sympathetic.
If, however, one has been touched
by Mr.' Davis' story, how much
more by that which now comes
from John lox, Jr.? For it is not
lea and geisha girls in general that
have made the hardships of Mr.
1 'ox's correspondence campaign, but
one in particular, and it is said
one in particular can cause much
more trouble and suffering than a
houseful in general. After this
particular little maid of Miyano
shita and John Ifox. Jr., have spent
hours tossing bits of biscuits to the
goldfishes in the pond, beholding
the glories of the cherry blossoms
and listening to the nightingales
as the swift dusk is falling after
all this, there is always the language
lesson to be gone through, a tedious
thing, truly, after a hard day's
campaign. Hut a war correspond
ent must learn the language of the
country he visits, so they begin at

With" liimder selling 'fcfpeF thou
sand lower than it was a vear ago,
says the Seattle Post-Intelligencer,
157 of the mills in the Northwestern
States have been shut down to
wait the decison of the transconti
nental railroads on the petition
for a .jo-cent rate into Missouri
river territory. Other mills run
ning are sicking up their lumber to
await a market demand.
Millmen claim that present mar
ket conditions will not justify their
operating plants permanently.
Many of those that are running are
doing so merely because it is cheaper
to continue business at a loss than
it is to allow the mills to lie idle.
The millmen are confident that the
transcontinental lines will grant
the .lo-rcnt rate asked for and
many of those operating at a loss
are piling their lumber in the hope
of obtaining a new market.
There are 1, 00S lumber mills in
Oregon, Washington, British Co
lumbia, Idaho, and Montana. Of
this number 439 are in Califor
nia and approximately 800 in Idaho,
Montana, Oregon and Washington.
The Hritish Columbia mills are not
affected as are the plants on this
side the Hue, by the lack of the
'Missouri river market. The num
ber of mills already closed are those
in the Northwestern States. The
the past fifteen lumber market has been going to
pieces for several months. The
cargo trade has fallen off together
with the decreased rail demand, and
conditions in California have made
the position of milliiieii more 1111

Kfght bundled tons of mils ar
rived in Honolulu last werk aspnit
of the cargo of thcTill'ie K. Star
buck, of New York, consigned to
the Kohala-IIilo Railroad. The
cost of the shipment is approxi
mately $25,000, and immediately
upon discharging her Honolulu
cargo, tlie vessel will proceed to
Hilo to unload this cumbersome
freight. Piesident Peck is much
pleased to learn of the arrival of
the first section of twelve mil's ol
the road, which will enable him to
begin very shortly the work of con
struction. Already sufficient island
capital has been subscribed to put
through this first division of the
line, and it is Mr. Peck's purpose to
begin operations without subscrib
ing the entire issue .of $3,500,000
bonds. Mr. Peck has received nu
merous inquiries from foreign
houses and others, asking for op
tions on placing the bonds, which
he has refused seeking rather to
build the first ten or twelve miles
of the proposed road before offering
the entire issue on the mnrkct.
The new survey has been about
completed and he hopes to be able
to let the construction contracts at
an early dale.
The following article appearing
in the June issue of "Farm Loans
and City Honds," a financial jour
nal published in Cliicago, contains
the following summary of the char
acter of the enterprise as nu invest
ment: "The bonds of the Kohala-IIilo
Railway are considered by the most
conservative men on the islands as
a very choice investment, con
sidering the management of the
road and the probable earnings.
The right of way of the road has
been surveyed twice from Hilo to
the port of Mahukona, a distance
of some 100 miles. A third survey
is now being made for final location,
as the steel rails for the first section
of fifteen miles have been shipped,
and the roadbed is to be ready foi

prospects for the Kohala-IIilo Rail
way arc full of promise. Next to
Honolulu, Hilo is the largest town
in Hawaii, and is situated on a
large deep harbor. The new road
will start from Hilo, running north
for fifty miles to Kukuihaelc, and
tapping 011 the way twelve large j
sugar plantations wan an approxi
mate total yearly output of 100,000
tons of sugar. The experience of
the Oahu Railway is that as much
freight is shipped to the plantations
as sugar is shipped out of them.
As nothing but sugar is raised 011
the plantations, all provisions, hay,
grain, lumber, etc., have to be
brought to them. The sugar
shipped from the Island of Hawaii
is at present done by vessels on the
open sea coast, where the water is
frequently rough, so that small
steamers which act as tenders to
carry the sugar to larger vessels in
Hilo are often unable for weeks 10
take on or discharge freight, and
it occasionally has happened that
sugar mills were obliged to shut
down, their sugar houses being full
to overflowing and unable to hold
more. Prom Kukuihaelc the road
will extend through the famous
Waiamea plains, a fine distric of
200,000 acres. Partners declare
that these plains can raise all the
hay and grnin used on the entire
! islands when the railway can
furnish transportation. Ivvery su
gar plantation may bj likened to a
village, as they employ from i ,000
to 1,500 hands each, and these
