examine into the morits of some
of tho Btoamora thoro availahlo for
U80 in tho proposed steam lino be
tween San Francisco and Hilo.
Captain Rock remains at the
Coast to look after tho iutorests of
tbo compauy at that point during
the nbsenco of Mi. Matson. It is
possiblo tho steamer purchased
may bo ouo that will ruako tbo
voyage from Sau Francisco to
Hilo in seven days.
Now that tho Matson steam line
to Sau Francisco and tho lino to
Seattle aro practically assurod it
is probablo Robeit Young will
plaut fifty acres of his land at
livo miles with bananas. Tho
nearness to point of shipping and
tho adaptability of tho soil in that
vicinity to growing bananas
makes Mr. Young's investment
much moro valuable. With tho
cultivation of this faiit Lo will
then havo ou his placo threo pro
fitable products, tho othors boing

Surveys to Form Counterpart of Hydrographic
Work of the Navy Treated to Break
fast In Town.
Company I of tho Second Regi
ment, United States Volunteer En
gineers, marched into town from
Camp McKiuley this morning.
There aro about eighty mon in the
company, commanded by Captain
Drapor. The company is on its
way to Penil Harbor. It was
marched into the Ar'intou Hot. 1
grounds, where, upon a table
spread on the lawn, was laid a
very enticing breakfast. This was
a treat to the company from Mr.
nnd Mrs. Thus. E. K rouso, host and
hostess of tho hotol. Mr. Davoy
took photographs of tho tablo be
foro and aftor tho arrival of the
Captain Drapor told n BULLETIN
reporter that the company was go
ing to Burvoy tbo land around
Pearl Harbor. Tho work would
be tliH eountorpnrt of the hydro -graphic
havts prepared by naval
Mirvoyo'H. 1'his company would bo
encamped at the place for fourteen
dayn, whnn it would probably bo
relieved by another company.
Tho company was marching to
(ho place, and would camp for a
rest halfway out.
Mr. Comstocli, a member of tho
company, was on tho staff of the
Denver Ropublicnn beforo oulist-
ing. Ho said in conversation with
tho reporter that ho thought tho
work of tho company at Pearl
Harbor would bo lnrgoly tho grad

projected naval station. Tho do

torin, and really does not convoy
to tho mind of a lawyer any Bpccific
