although tho newspapers erro
neously represented that tho rail
way lost its case. Holdors of ripa
rian rights wero ontitled to build
wharves to deop water. Ho proceed
ed to advocato placing tho harbor

havo wharves for oOOU feet on

four or five por cent, would in

Mr. Dillingham spoke of the in

no difficulty in getting capital for
a bolt lino railway to wharves on
tbe other side of tho harbor. This
dovico might result in giving tho

decide whothor to havo a larger
harbor of Houolulu or admit the
necessity of developing Pearl har

Chamber should liavo tho benefit
ot oxpert opinion on the drayago
and other questions.

tinued tho discussion.
