MONDAY, JULY 20, 1&)7.
Ton years ngo the croakers woro
in full er at tlio heels of Ben
jamin V. Dillingham, who up till
that time had been known chiefly
as a eucceebful haidwaro mer
chant and an euthusinstic and not
les successful dairy proprietor.
About a year previously Mr.
Dillingham had ventured to make
known his faith in the develop
ment of ngricultuinl land on this
ibland of Ouhu manifold in ex
cess of what was then profitably
cultivated in sugar, lice, bauaiias,
taro, otc. and his belief that a
railway skirting tho bhores of the
jiblaud would bo tho best agency
forsvicJijlovolopineiit as well as a
profitable venterpriso in itself.
Whon ho hal the temerity to
broach a practical scheme of rail
way constiuution ten years ago,
and wont to England at his own
eipoim to raibo the capital, mauy
people regarded him as a crank.
His project was as fruitful a
source of ourbatoue discussion as
the question of annexation is now,
producing just as great a variety
of views and predictions express
ed r .tu an equal air of
infallibility. Owiug to obstaoles
that need not now bo desciibed,
Mr. Dillingham failed to lloat his
scheme iu either tho United
States or England. Ho came
homo defeated but not daunted.
Some large landholders became
convinced of tho merits of the
project, ohief of them being Mark
P. Robinson, and with a basis of
largo tracts of fortile laud, hither
to mostly utilized for pasture, the
Oahu Railway aud Laud Compa
ny was organized. Tho Logisla
tuie granted a subsidy to tho
railway, payablo as tho construc
tion progressed. So much for the
genesis of the corporation just
named. Some particulars of its
present condition and prospects
are givon below from the sixth re
port to the stockholders just issued.
Tho railway, which was opened
from Honolulu to Manana, on
Pearl Harbor, a distanco of about
15 miles, on July 1, 1890, haB now
a main lino nenrly U4 miles in
length extending to Waiauae, and
there aro fivo miles additional in
branches and sidings. Tho divi
sion from Ewa sugar mill to Wai
auae sugar mill, built in 1895, is
lo utiles iu length. It is proposed
to have the lino extended to Ka
huku, a distanco of 38 miles from
Waianao, by somo time in 1898.
More than half tho distance, or
tho extuubiou to Waialua, is under
contract to bo completed this yoar.
The opening of tho liuo to Kahu
ku will thus tap tho old sugar
plantation nt Waialua and tho now
ono at Kahuku, and besides will
touch extensive tracts of laud
highly suitablo for sugar cane
cultivation and other branches of
Tho gross earnings of tho com
pany increased from 8105,920.18
in 1892 to $172,232.:i7 in 1890.
Tho railway department's gross
earnings in 1890 woro 119,918,U!!,
against S90.718.15 in 1895. Thoro
is an iucroaso, as botween tho last
two years, of $20,301.75 in gross
receipts of tho ranch department,
while tho laud department shows
a falling off. The gross expenses
of tho company increased from
79,714.95, in 1892 to $83,009.03
in 1896, tho railway department's
share being $04,841.93 in 1892 and
$68,141.16 in 1896. From those
figures it will bo seen that the
ratio of expense to income has
diminished in a dogroo that must
bo gratifying to tho stockholders.
Tho not gain of the company has
been $26,211.23 in 1892, $39,955.
51 in 1893, 852,293.83 in 1894,
856,724.17 in 1895, and $89,102.74
Mention has been made of two
sugar plantations to be reached
by tho extension to Kahuku. It
5n nlan in Uo oiulftil Mint the oxten
sivo now plantation of tho Oahu
Sugar Company has been started
on tho existing liuo in Ewa dis
trict tho present yoar. This is
the third large plantation that has
been started as a direct conse
quence of tho operations of the
Oahu Railway and Laud Compa
ny, whoso railway lino will on
reaching Waialua have connected
with two flourishing old sugar
plantations. Tho report montionB,
among tho new industries started
along tho lino of tho road, the
Huwaiiau Fruit aud Packing
Company and tho Sandwich Isl
and Honey Company. Tho can
ning company shipped 55 tons
of canned fruit iu 1896. Tho
honey company control miles of
algeroba forest fioin which bees
gather a superior quality of honey,
and, placing beo hives by the
thousand, may be expected to re
port with roturn freight later-
Two thousand tons of pineapples
and other green fruits were car
rid to market by rail last year.
Tho growing demand for firewood,
sand and limorock has added con
siderably to tho freight tonnage.
An interesting comparative state
ment of the freight hauled each
year, showing tlio rapid Increaso
in agricultural products along tho
line, is given. Iu 1893 it was
24,910 tons; in 1894, 35,806 tons;
in 1895, 38,097 tone, and iu 1890,
00,430 tons. Sugar was carried iu
1890 to tho amount oi 15,923 tons,
aud fertilizer aud fertilizer ma
terial 10,100 tons.
Passenger statistics of tho road
make a good showing, according
to tho following table mado up
from tho report:
Number of Passenger
Ye ir. l'li'-soiijjoni. KectlpU.
1893 82,023 $24,707 35
1894 79,642 25,521 00
1895 70,351 20,195 03
lb'JG 85,590 30,993 50
The incroase of earnings, it is
explained, is due to the average
increase of distanco each pas
senger has been oarried. The in
creaso in the receipts has not
been at the expense of the pas
sengers, as the average rate per
mile has decreased steadily since
the road was opened. Tho total
passenger traffic in 1893 was equal
to carrying 844.342 passougors
one mile, whilo in 189C the traffic
was equal to carrying 1,325,059
passongors tho samo distance,
which at tho samo rate per mile
as charged in 1893 would amount
to !f38,42G.01, instead of 30,993.50,
the amount received.
One of tho most important oper
ations of tho company tho past
year was tho refunding of tho
debt, whereby indebtedness bear
ing 7, 8 and 9 por cent, interest
was plaoed at 0 por cent. This
was effected by tho consolidation
of all tho prosont property uudor
one deed of trust, providing for
the Kahuku extension, the re
demption of bonded aud floating
indebtedness, and tho rolaying of
tho road from Honolulu to Ewa
Mill, a distance of 20 milos, with
18ll. stool rails, all by the iusuo
of $2,000,000 six por conl. consoli
dated first mortgage bonds.

"In time of peace prepare
for war" is an excellent adage,
and one which the United
States evidently believed in
when the new navy was built.
We in Hawaii have especial
reason to be thankful that in
times of peace such a magni
ficent specimen of marine ar
chitecture as the battleship
Orernn was made teadv for
to heart, not alone in national
affairs but in those of the
household. Suppose the Japa
nese licet dltuuld blockade Ho
nolulu, for instance, we should
soon find ourselves run
ning short of lots of little
household necessaries other
This week we have one of
our windows filled with an as
sortment of articles necessary
