THE RAILROAD OUTLOOK.
An Act to authorize and encour
age the construction of steam rail
roads on the Island of Oahu became
a law barely thTceTnonths ago. The
grantee of the franchise, Mr..,13. F.
Dillingham, informs us that nearly
twelve miles of line have been sur
veyed and staked out for the Pearl
iEiver, tEailroad,7; leading from the
iishmarkct in Honolulu to the Ewa
Court 'House. Hon. M. 1 Robin
sonf'Mr." Samuel C. Allen, lion. S.
1 NCastle, Messrs. Ilackfcld iVCo.,
and others huvc subscribed liberally
for bonds ,in the prpspective com
pany, the aggregate amount being
sufficient to ensure the success of
the enterprise. The Zealandia
which steamed from here on Satur
day evening, Dec. 15th, took an or
der for 700 tons of steel rails, for
war'decPby Messrs? Hf HatkfeM &
' Co.- of tins city,' to " San 'Francisco,
to be transmitted 'to'Germahy by
cable. The'rails are to be shipped
if possible, on their January ship.
Mr. Dillingham has secured already
2,000 acres of land in fee and 18,
000 acres under long lease, for the
R.- R. Company. This superior
. tract of land has a frontage of three
miles near to the lineof road, and
extends to the mountain top. com-
manding 'a-charming view, overlook
ing Peail river harbor and the blue
waters, of the Pacific beyond. A
ymore,pvely site for a town or city
could hardly be found than the one
now under control of the projectors
t .of )this grand scheme.
Railroads and telegraphs create
new life and business energy wlier
. over .they, arc extended, and must
therefore receive a cordial welcome
by every body in this country, espe
- cially at a time when mechanics and
'laboring men generally are demand
ing employment. It is not well that
Y n soliome&f this kind should be kept
in the hands of a few capitalists ; it
jfiis.a public enterprise. The pro-
pcrty upon which it is proposed to
tissub 'first" mortgage bonds is amplo
.i security for more money than it is
proposed to borrow, and the general
public, should be nllowqcj to sub
scribe. Honda should bo issued in
j' denominations as small as 825. The
investment will pay well if properly
'monageu, and the names o"f the gen
tlemen .w1iq arc to -form the com
panjnvuich will be published later,
'are'a'gtiarantecof such management.
Applications for homestead lots have
already begun to come in, and there
yvjjl prqbabjy lu a bppm for lots in
."Peart Kiver City" that will aston
ish the most sanguine.
The formation of another railroad
company to build n lino to Koolmi
is also contemplated, and will be
pushed forward at no very distant
day, if property-owners, planters,
andbthers living on the windward
side of this Island aic sufllclently

alive to their own interests, and will
ilo llicir fluty to themselves and
meet tlio inilroaci projectors half
way. Thero is plonty of uood su
gar land in Koolau, upon which all
the Natives, Portuguese aud many
good white men in tins country and
out of it might cultivate on their
own account and get their cane
ground at the various mills on that
side of the island if railway facili
ties were provided. It is to he hop
ed that wo arc waking np to the pos
sibilities around us. Let us grasp
our opportunities before they slip
into the hands of others.
AN EARLY BLAZE.
About half past four o'clock this
morning a native policeman wearing
badge No. 13, was going along
Emma street when he noticed a
bright light in an unoccupied house
belonging to Gilbert Waller and
opposite Emma Square, lie yelled
eut "fire," and the neighbors hear
ing him one of them turned in an
alarm. Messrs. J. F. Morgan, W.
F. Love and others were soon on the
spot and breaking in the door put
the fire out with buckets of water.
It started in a small room in rear of
the house and was fortunately dis
covered in time. The walls of the
room were badly charred. The
origin of the lire is unknown but
it looks very much like the work of
an incendiary. Engine Co. No. 2,
and a couple of hose carts were on
the ground but their services were
THE BARK G. R. BISHOP.
The German bark C. R. Bishop
left San Francisco, Nov. 29th, for
Qucenstown. Two days later smoke
was seen issuing from the cracks
and crevices of the deck. Just as
the fact was discovered the Ameri
can ship Stirling, bound to New
York from San Francisco, was sight
ed, and that vessel bore down to the
Bishop's assistance. The Stirling's
crew assisted in battening the
hatches and caulking every possible
seam, and, after supplying the
Bishop with provisions, went on her
voyage. This took place about 280
miles from San Francisco.
Soon after the bark dropped an
chor the tugs Etna and Anasha went
alongside and began to pump water
into the Bishop's hold. About 10
o'clock Dec. 5, the vcs&el was taken
up to Mission flats, whcic she was
beached at midnight. Her cargo
consisted of 28,1)15 centals of wheat
valued at $44,000, and was shipped
by G. W. McNcar. She has also a
quantity of general cargo, including
wool, and it is supposed by the cap
tain that spontaneous combustion
caused by the latter aiticle is the
cause of the fire. The mizzenmast
was burned off from the Lecl to the
deck, and was hanging over the
The entire loss by the lire is $20,
000, the greater portion of which is
covered by insurance.
