Tho representatives of the Hilo
Railway Oo. asked for an immedi
ate decision ns the rails and o'her
materials wero now on the way.
The Government favored the
idea of granting the Hilo Railway
Oo. a location substantially as
asked for, with modifications. No
final action was taken, but- there
1b no doubt as to the granting of
terminal points on Hilo bay and
Wailoa river. Tho only hesitancy
on tho part of the Government is
in regard to the area applied for.
Tho land sub-leased by the Ko
hala and Hilo Railway is nearly
all under an eighteen years' lease
by tho government to the Waia
kea Sugar Company. Some of tho
minor portions are private lands.
However, this harbor front stretch
runs across tho land applied for
by tho Hilo Railway Oompany in
three or four places.
Speaking of the matter Presi
dent Dole said: "Tho Govern
mont will not tolerate any land
grabbing polioy on tho part of

to bo a granting of rights of way
on tho part of soxo one.
Tho Onbinet discussed further
