In all probability, there will bo

Ths 3:15 p. ra. train of yester
day left on time. Upon approach
ing Waimoa, at G o'clock, it was
found that the rain was coming
down in sbeots. Tho train waited
until 8:30 o'clock, the rain all (bo
whilo pouring down Bteadily. At
this hour, thore was a lull in tho
storm nd the train was ablo to
paes over tbo bridgo and continue
on its way tq Kahuku.
Soon after this, tho rain began
again and poured down steadily
for several hours. Tho road mas
ter stated this morning that ho
had seen heavy rains in Waimea,
but last night's was a record
broaker. Tbo stroams became
swollen end dirt was washed down
from t,ho sido of tho cut with tho
result given nbovo.
This morning, the Kahuku train
was of oiurso uuablo to got past
tho cut and was forced to remain
at that place. Learning of tho
daratge, Superintendent Donison
dospatohed a special train to Ewa
and Pearl City to bring up tbo
