$3300 pr mile of tux-payors'
money on govommont bonds.
Without this the O. It. & L. Co.
could or would not have been
built. It was advocated by its
promoters that (his road would
open up the couutry along tho Boa
coaat for Binall homes, farina,
orchards, beautiful villas, otc.
Tho writer, being a fairly largo
rat1 piver, oncouragod aud gave
what little assistance ho could in
thuy way of tolliug its manager
that any laud owned by him or
uuder his control tin) lt.lt. could
pa-s through without charge. Wo
took a rouud trip over this excel
lent road a lw days ago. Tho
faro was reasonable, cars clean and
airy, attendance courteous aud
tho hennery, boautiful; but do
cosy lhtlo homesteads could
bo seen anywhoro ouly coolie
camps from one ond of tho road
to tho other. It tins roau was
built for tho plantations, tho Gov
erumout may have put its raonoy
to better use, as tho plantations ou
Oahu havo hotter landings than
they havo on tho othor islands.
Is it not a fact that tho manager
of this road (which Ho could not
have built without tho Government
wfQubaidy) has beon tho advauco
agent of tho road aud gobblod up
all availablo large t acts of land
as well as small kill -nuns?
Wo know of aovonl small home
steaders who i" n ted or leased
land from tho said company, built
houses, planted fruit troos and,
aftor a fow years of strugglo, had
to leave as they could not pay tho
. rent, wator rates, etc
" Thoro is no landlord so exact
and cruel as tho middloman,
Speculator or second landlord.
i That has boon tho case in Ireland,
'Australia and othor countrjoB and
i it is hore today;but with tho advout
I of ono man, ono vote, under our
now Americau laws, it is to bo
hoped tho power of corporated
wealth in this littlo country will
bo held in check.
Tho valuo of such association
can easily bo apprecia'ed, but the
question is how to b ing tho sub

thoso Islands. As it seems to us
thero is but one w ly, and that is,

W. G. Graco, the great English
cricketer, is still at it. Tho pru

and a London papor rccallB that
31 yoars ago, when Graco was a
slim young man of 10, ho played
for tho samo sido in an identical
match. Of tho other 21 players in
that match thoro aro ten survivors.
In tli9 table of "first-clasB nver

eighth ou tho list of 87 players. His
fiuuros aro: Innings, 35; runs,
1372; most in the innings, 1G8;

W. G. Quaifo, at tho head of tho
batting list, has this record: Innings,-23;
runs, 881; most in an

not out, 7; avorage, 01.50.
Albort Ward did some Quo work
at the bat iu a recont match be
tween Lancaahiro and Surroy
which ended in a draw. He car
riod his bat out for G3, to tho
credit of Lancashiro,' aftor playing
with extraordinary pationco and
skill for nearly four hours. That
was good for a dofensivo game
such as ho played, but was totally
eclipsed by Hay ward for Surroy,
in carrying his bat out for 315.
In this match Lancashiro play
ed for the draw in their second
inningB, having had o follow on
against a balance of -101 runs.
Thoy Bimply had to koop up their
wickets for four hours to avoid
