Of the industries of Honolulu
the operation of the Marine Railway
is one of the most important in a
variety of ways. It gives employ
ment to much skilled labor, thus
helping to keep a good class of peo
ple in the city. By a large consump
tion of shipbuilding material, the
railway adds much directly to local
trade. Its existence is a powerful
inducement for shipping in these
seas to call at this port for needed
repairs; also for vessels trading be
tween this and foreign ports to have
works of renovation done here thai,
without such a convenience, they
would require to go to San Francisco
or elsewhere to have accomplished.
When it is considered that vessels
while waiting for repairs are the
means of circulating money from
outside sources, in addition to the
expenditure of the railway work
men's wages in the shops, the im
portance of the work, in.lhat respect
alone, to the city needs no magnify
ing. As a convenience for inter
island shipping, which was one of
the main objects held in view by the
projectors of the enterprise, the
railway has been a boon of incalcula
ble value. It would be needless to
go into particulars to prove this
manifest advantage of having such a
work established in the chief port of
The Honolulu Marino Railway is
a monument to the statesmanlike
forethought, public spirit and enter
prise of the Hon. Samuel G. Wilder.
In the year 1880 the Government of
this kingdom,Jof which Mr. Wilder
was Premier and Minister of the
Interior, advertised in England,
America, France and Sweden, for
estimates from engineers for cither
a dry dock or marine railway at
Honolulu. Of all the responses re
ceived the estimates of Mr. Horace
I. Crandall, forwarded through the
Hawaiian Consulate of Boston, were
accepted. In April, 1SS1, Mr.
Crandall arrived here to make the
necessary surveys. 'After an ex
amination of the harbor and its
bottom he reported to the authorities
that a stationary dry dock was im
practicable, on account of the coral
formation, that would form its lloor,
being so porous that it would be im
possible to keep it dry, even at an
enormous expense for pumping. A
(loating dry dock was also out of
the question on account of the cir
cumscribed limits of the harbor. A
marine railway was therefore decided
upon by the Government, and Messrs.
Wilder & Co. contracted to build it,
the bead of the linn having in the
meantime retired from His Majesty's
Cabinet. Of course, Mr. Crandall
was selected as engineer, and in
view of his record, particularly as a
submarine engineer, it would in
deed have been dillicult to have
found a better man. la the year
18o-l, while living at New Bedford,
Massachusetts, he invented an im
proved style of marine railway,
since known as "Crandall's Patent
Marino Hallway." Up to the time
ho became known here, Mr. Cran
dall had built no less than twenly
three of these railways on the coasts
of North and South America, from
North Sydney in Nova Scotia to
Hucnos Ayres, Argentine Republic.
In addition to these works, he had
built an important bridge on one of
the Pacific Railway lines, and was
for a time propietory manager of a
coal mine in Cape Breton, N. S.
He was also the author of many
mechanical inventions of great uti
lity, and is a relative of Mr. James
Crandall, of the United States, the
inventor of the famous and ingeni
ous "Crandall's Toys,"
The work of construction was
begun on the railway on February
11th, 1882. A large amount of
material for filling up the ground on
the site being required, it was ne
cessary to build a land railway from
the spot to the base of Punchbowl.
This work was accomplished under
the mechanical superintendence of
Mr. James Lyle, who had been em
ployed as foreman of the works.
' He had been Mr. Crandall's fore
man, many years previous, in the
' construction of the Buenos Ayres
marine railway, and also in later
works of the same kind at other
places. Mr. Crandall came out In
the same season from Canada, with
a brigade consisting of two skilful
divers, thirteen shipwrights accus
tomed to marine railway work, and
one mechanical engineer. So expe
ditiously was the work forwarded
that on (he first day of January,
188!!, the railway was ready for
The engines for the railway were
made at Geo. Forester &Co.'s
works. Liverpool, England, and all
the wrought iron work, chains, etc.,
were made by Henry Wood & Co.,
Liverpool. Oregon forests provided
the wood, the native woods being
too heavy, as well us difficult to get
and work. The railway has a
capacity for vessels of fifteen hun
dred tons with ballast. It cost in
the neighborhood of one hundred
thousand dollars to build.
Upon the completion of the rail
way it was leased for fifteen years
from the Government by the Hon.
Mr. Wilder. lie operated it suc
cessfully until Feb. '-'1st of the
pfesent year, when, with the per
mission of the Government, he made
a transfer of the lease to Messrs.
Sorenson & Lyle, the latter having
been superintendent of the works
from the start. Mr. Sorenson is
the veteran master shipwright
this port, having been engaged
mat uusincss ncre lor auoui -'i
years. Many a gallant craft has he
"hove down, " when that was the
only method in vogue here, and
translornied lroin the condition or a
more or less battered and fouled
hulk to her original seaworthiness.
Mr. Lyle, his partner, has spent his
whole life in shipyards and on dry
docks and marine railways. His
father was a leading ship-builder in
Nova Scotia, a country second to
none for the class of wooden ships
it sends forth, whoso sails speck
every sea with whiteness. Ship
building is therefore second nature
to both members of the firm now
operating the Honolulu Marine Rail
way. Ample stocks of material arc
always at hand, and shipowners and
masters sending vessels away from
here for rehabilitation cannot possi
bly fare any better in obtaining the
required services elsewhere. Every
facility is here provided for ship and
boat building and repairing. As no
slight guarantee to the safety of the
works and the assurance of prompt
service thereupon, the fact may be
stated that from the beginning of
operations to the present time there
has been no mishap of any kind on
the railway. A thorough ship's
blacksmith, in the person of Mr.
Hugh Monro, is employed at the
works constantly, and his execution
of any kind of ship's forging cannot
be excelled in workmanship. Then
the Honolulu Iron Works can always,
in an emergency, provide any ordi
nary metallic fittings of a ship, so
that on the whole this port is ex
ceedingly well equipped for repair
For the benefit of readers who
may not know what a marine railwaj'
is, a word of description will not be
out of place. It is an inclined rail
way, descending from a repairing
shipyard into deep water. A heavy
platform with high frames at the
sides, called the cradle, slides upon
series of rollers running in grooves
in ironclad timber rails. A system
of chains connected with powerful
steam winches is employed to let the
cradle down into deep water and
haul it up again. When the cradle
is run out into a sufficient depth,
the vessel to be hauled up is floated
between the arms of the cradle.
Then a system of movable blocks,
worked by cranks from the tops of
the cradle frames, grasps the hull of
the vessel, and the cradle and its
burthen are drawn up high and dry.

THE CIRCUS OPENING.
The Circus gave a very successful
performance last night, to a large, audi

and latecomers had to stand. After tiic
band overture comic specialties, some of
which were very laughable, and acrobat
feats of great dexterity were performed.
Musical nonius by L. Shillito was im
mense, the oddest Instruments imagin
able, such as old cans and bottles, being
iied. Above all the acting of the ani
mals was marvellous: they evinced al
most human intelligence. The horses
displayed a piccision in military drill
movements that would not discredit
veteran soldiers. Other feats of the
trained milords were equestrianism by
dogs mill goats; rope skipping and
cannon llring by a pony, and many oper
ations by horses and dogs which would
be dillicult even for men. ''Circus rid
ing exposed," the last piece, sent the
crowd home sore with laughter.
HAWAIIAN LIMESTONE COMPANY.
Messrs. Sorenson & Lyle have just
completed building a wharf at Waialua
for the Hawaiian Stone Company. The
whaif is 110 feet long, lit feet wide in
side anil 8 feet outside. It is provided
with a sixteen feet chute, for loading
Hie scows with the stone. No pile-driving
was required, the log.-, being placed
upon shear legs, slung and braced with
wire ropes. The shore ends of the logs
are fastened to the rocks with Iron bolts.
A boat shed has alno been built, and
furnished with roller ways for hauling
up the boats. A railway extends In two
directions from the quarries to the
wharf, with a turntable at the Inner end.
These works will afford ample facilities
for tlm shipping operations of the Com
pany at that end of the line. Mr. ,101111
