In that communication I mado
this 3tatomont: "With roferonce

that tho failure of the second com

of tho first Company was their

not granted to us and now wo are
told wo aro too late."
I regrot to learn that tho fore
goiog Btatoment, together with the
copy of the letter, is regarded as
misloding and calculated to ro
fldct unjustly upon the Govern
ment. I wish to state that thoro was
no intention of doing injustice lo
tho Government, but merely to
stnto tho facts as I understood
thorn; that from tbo information
I had received tho impression
mado upon me wbb, that while
the Government had practically
agreed to tho proposition of tho

that it was not too late to havo our

no dilicronca witu your plans.
You cau filo your papors at any

I replied: "Vory woll. We
will go ahead jnst the same. I will
see you again and would liko to

you think that Iho matter will bo

Mr. Coopor replied: "Thore is
no regular mooting of the Cabinot

not beeu signed, but the mattor
may be closed up at any timo, as
it has practically seen settled on."
I asked Mr. Cooper further if I
could havo a copy of tho contract
with tbo othor Company.
Ho replied that after tho papers
were signed I could huvo a copy.

Reply to Mr. Dillingham's Latter
Mr. Bonjamin F. Dilliugham,
Presidont of tho Hilo Railroad
Company in bis letter withdraw
ing objections to tbo uranliuo of a
second franohiso states: "Tim
undersigned desire to avail thom
solvos of this opportunity to dony
most emphatically the truth of
certain statements mado by Her
bert 8. Gohr in tho Evkning
Bulletin of Juue 5lh, and espe
cially of tho statements that,
'twenty-ono days beforo tho Gov
ernment entered into tho Hilo
Railroad Contract wo requested
vorbally nnd in writing that wo
be allowed to appear and placo

Tho fact is, tho contract with
this Company waB signed by the
mombors of tbo Executive Council
on March 23, tho aarao date as
its chartor. It had been nmefi.
cally agroed upon for some time
prior to this. After Mr. Mott
Smith camo into tho Cabinet,
reasons wero suggested why it
might bo advisable to ro-oxecute
tho contracted it was re-oxocuted
on tho ICth day of April."
In roply I wonld say that tho
Charter and tho Contraot wero
dated tho 18th day of April. This
fact was verified by tho President
and Members of tho Executive
Council by reference to tho docu
ments during tho discussion ot
the matter, and through nil nf
thoso interviews at which not only
the ProsHent and Members of tho
Executivo Council wero present,
but also members and counsel of
tho Hilo Railroad Company and
members and counsel of our Com
pany, nothing to the conlrory was
lf tbo papers were exroutod on
some day prior to. tho 18th day oE
April and afterwnrdo changed,
that fact was within tbo knowl
edge of tho mombers of the Ex
ecutive Council, but there was
oothing to suggest it lo ua. In
fnc, it wai not m'H IttTiU-y,
tho 10th day of June, whon Mr.

Presidont Dolo at n mooting of
thoExocutive Couucil, at which.
uiuiuuers 01 our uompany woro

In my former arliclo I endeav
ored carefully not to misstate or
over-stalo any of tho foots connect
ed with the case, and mv Htntn-
ments woro all based noon mutters
of record and information from
tbo Executive Oonncil.
President Dojo, himsolf, in tho
article published over bis own

as ho says: "On tho 18th day o
April tho Hilo Railroad Company
