THE MAHUKONA R. R.
Last Saturday wo were shown a
sciics of 33 beautiful photographs of
the plaecs of interest on this line,
executed by Mcssi's.' William's &Co.
to the order of the Hon. S. G.
"Wilder, who will lake 'them with him
on his travels eastward. .Being
struck with the beauty of thee
photogwiphs and the many fealuies
of inteiest which the line possesses
we proceeded to glean as much in
formation as we possibly could about
it. We arc indebted for the matciial
from which the following account is
written to Mr. Williams and to air.
A. Gilfillau, the courteous conductor
of the line. '
The line is veiy nearly 2t miles in
length on account of the sinuositv of
the track, but the distance, as the
crow tlics, between the termini is
only about 1C miles. There is only
about half-a-inilc of track without a
curve in it in the whole Hue. This
will give the reader some idea of the
diiliculty of laying such a line and,
when laid, of, running trains over it.
'The following is a list of the stations
(at each of which, except the
second, 'is a sugar-mill)' and their
distance in miles from Mahukona :

Tiains leave Mahukona on the
arrival of the Likelike, and every
"Wednesday and Saturday morning
leave Niulii at 7,-arriving in Mnhu
koua nt9:30, and taking about 13
minutes between each station. On
Fiiday morning a train leaves Mahu
kona at 8 a.m. on the arrival of the
Likelike from Hilo, This gives
visitois an excellent chance to go
over the road and back, seeing its
wild and wonderful beauties, and
thoso who are of a practical turn of
mtnd may sec the workings of dif
It seems as if at least one-half of
the road was built on trestlc-woik,
there being so mauy gulches to
cross. . The rolling 6tock v consists
of 2 engines, G passenger 0030110.",'
3 flat-cnis and 33 trucks. Water is,
taken 1 hi at Star Mills Station, just
where the road overhangs a frightful
and precipitous gulch. , The line is
built on two curves here from 40 to
CO degrees. ,1C hands are employed
at Mahukona and 1 at each other
station. Mr. C. L. Wight is super-,
intendent, A. Cllfllliur) conductor,
J. Williams, br,ikcimtn, Jas. Shaw,
engineer, and Max Schlcmmcr fire
man, and all are well-known in the
distiict for'' their obliging "couitesy.
, One rcmarkablo point in connect
ion with the line is thnt no one has
been killed or even seriously injured
bitice the start. It is contemplated
to have an electric light --on the
engine, and run at flight time, and
' also ouo at -Niulii mill which it is
thought must be i'nn all night to
keep up with the yvoik.
The pictures by Messrs. Williams
& Co. show the wend and woudctful
beauties of the ride splendidly j those
who have been them giving it as their
opinion Unit better or more charac
'tciistlc views could-1 not ' have been
taken. Amongst the most striking
aie .Uioso of Makapala bridge (G3

picting. (Evirlcueo was taken as to
ticatmeat experienced by plaintiff.
Half an ncro of land for vegetables,
&c, was to be given each by con
tract. These, single men waived their
right to it in consideration of the
plantation paying a cook for them.).
It is admitted by defendants thnt the
evidence in .all the cases, as to fail in e
,to pi ovule half an acre of land for
each laborer would be the same as
in the case piescntcd. Plaintiff's
counsel argues on the point and
relies on that as sulllcicnt to warrant
the Court in giving judgment for
plaintiff, not relying on the other
charges. Defendant's counsel ad
mits that in the question of the hnlf-an-ncie
of laud the contract has not
been complied with, that the law
here does, not ndtnit of a modiuoa
tion of the contract except in writ
ing, and that the plaintiffs are en
titled to be dischaiged from further
obligation under said contracts,' and
contracts must, be cancelled.
The Court after addressing defen
dants gives judgment fot plaintiff
and concels contract, costs- 2.20.
