Tacoma, Decembor 22.
"Barneson fe Cbilcott have mado
a bid for tho transportation of
10,000 tons of sugar from tho Ha
waiian islands to Now York by
way of Puget Sound, and possi
bly by way of tho port of Tacoma
and the Northorn Pacific."
So said Richard Cbilcott, of the
firm of Barnoson fc Cbilcott, Puget
Sound stovedoros and shipping
mon, and manager of tbo Pugot
Sound-Hawaiian steamer lino in
which tho Centennial and tho City
of Columbia woro placed several
wooks ago. Ho returned from the
East last week and was in TaconTa
"Should wo get tho contract,"
continued Mr. Cbilcott, "we shall
bring tho sugar to tho Sound in
sailing vessols. I havo today
been speaking with tho Northorn
Pacific peoplo in regard to having
sidings pat in at thoir wharf.
"The prospective freight is to
bo moved this season, and the
first cargo, should wo got tho con
tract, will start to movo about tho
first of tho year.
"This movomont by way of
Pugot Sound would givo tho
Northern transcontinental road,
hundreds of cars of freight, but it

heavy enough for us to maintain
