Colonol Z. S. Spalding, who has
bocomo on nbsonteo sugar mng
noto of Hawaii, lately droppod
down in tlio midst of his old
frioudB und noighbors, aftor living
for soveral yoors in thogront cities
of the world. Ho was not hero
many days when it was uunounc
od that ho had a Puoifio oublo
Eoherao cut and driod in his
pockflt, which offered immodiato
if not soonor tolcgraphic commu
nication not only with Sun Fran
cisco but botwoon tho hnbitod isl
ands of this group. For soveral
days tho Govornmont doomed tho
Colonel's proposals of such sub
limo importance to tho public
that it was afraid to trust the
public with tho particulars. At
laBt tho Govornmont recovered
from tho shook and yesterday di
vulged tho portentous mystery.
in all substantial respoots tho
proposals of Col. Spalding are as
Ho has in his possossion full
information of the stylo of cable
required for tho routo to San
Francisco, also that of one suit
able to connect theso islands.
Also full figures from tho Tolo
graph Construction Company,
Limited, "tho largest cable con
struction company in oxistence,"
of tho cost of laying both lines,
and of a cablo ropuir ship. And,
withal, ho has "mudo conditional
arrangements for securing all
money nocessary to construct, lay
and equip such lines and ship."
Tho conditions of tho financial ar
rangements nro tho securing of a
cortain amount of subsidies from
tho governments interested, "as,"
ho says, "it is manifest that for
some time, at least, tho onterpriBo
cannot bo solf-supporting."
The terras of a contract between
tho Hawaiian Govornmont und
himself aro as follows: Ho will
bpar nil the oxponso alroudy in
currod for getting information
and any further expense neces
sary for the same purpose. Ho
will couduot all negotiations with
other Governments, with cablo
engineers and constructors, and
with financial agents. Ho will
undortako to provide all tho
capital without any assistance
from this government outsido of
its subsidy. His preliminary ar
rangements are to be complotod
within eighteen months from Oc
tober 31, 1895, and both cablo
systeuiB will be in operation eigh
teen months thereafter, say Octo
ber 31, 1898. Ho will undor
tako to maintain both systems in
good working ordor, withput ex
pense to this Governmoni, for
20 years. And if there should bo
any suspension in tho forking of
tbo cables tor more than ninety
days, tho subsidy is to bo sus
pended at the rate of $10,000 a
yoar for the inter-island systom
and $40,000 a year for the line to
San Francisco. If the interrup
tion sh ill continue for ono year
ufter such niuoty days, tho Gov
ernment tdiall have power to can
oel tho contract.
Tho Government will huve its
messneos transmitted free, at
regular rates, up to $50,000 por
annum, A maximum scalo of
charges for the intor-isluud sys
tom is to bo agroed upon and in
serted in the contract. Tho soulo
of charges over tho Sun Francisco
lino will bo fixed in his contract
"with any foreign govornmont
contributing a subsidy to such
cable, with the usual conditions
regarding reduoed ratos for press
messages, etc" Col. Spalding will
deposit soourity in $25,000 of Ha
waiian Government bonds, which
is to bo roturned to him if within
oighteon months ho notify tho
Govornmont that he declines to
proceed with the enterprise, or if
theroufter by mutual ogroomont
tho contruot bo either canceled or
extended, ilo will make a free
gift of the intor-island cablo to
