'way. ' - -
This Idea came to the banker and
former Minister of Finance with 'ir
resistible force when he took his first
ride to Pacific Heights yesterday utter
noon In one of Mr. Desky's electilc
cars. The Jaunt Into the clear air ot
the Heights was keenly enjoyed by
him, and right up there he made the
suggestion that the line should be ex
tended to Tantalus.
"I think It would be a grand thin?,"
Mr. Damon said to a bulletin reporter
today, "to have MrrD'eaki'ji electric
railway carried around by Pauoa to the
summit of Tantalus. . (,.t
"No, It should not be.wlth the, ob-,
Jcct of settling the land along the route.
I would advocate It solely for the bem
ill of the people, and believe the Gov
ernment should assist It. That Is why
1 am a Democrat," Mr. Damon laugh
ingly explained. "Instead ot having to
hire a back as now, which few people
can afford, anybody could ride up In tho
cars for ten or twenty cents and enjoy
the cool atmosphere charged with pure
ozone on the top of Mount Tantalus.
. "There must be a difference of tea
orjlfteen degrees between the tempera
turo of Tantalus and that or tionoimu.
With an electric. car Jlno. people neoJ
lng a change of air, but who cannot go
to California or1 even to the Volcano
House, would get the benefit for a few
cents and within half an hour's pleas
ant ride from tho city."
' 4"What form do you think Govern
ment assistance should take, Mr. Da
"Well. the finances will hardly Justi
fy a money subsidy, but tho Govern
ment ought at least to grant the right
of way. Then It should set apart fifty
or a hundred ncreB at the summit fnr
u park, to bo placed In charge of com
missioners llko Kaplolanl park. Pre
cautions 'would have to"be taken
against Are. In tho dry season, along
about August, It would be necessary lo
hae guards. An outbreak of fire would
he a calamity. X
"The Government should assist the
scheme purely for the good of the 'peo
ple. This would bo according to demo
cratic principles. The attraction to
tourists is a mercenary motive." Mr,
Damon responded to a suggestion of
public benefit in that line. "My first
consideration Is the health and pleasure
of our own people. At the same time,
the scheme t would be a great one fo
tinelcrs passing through or visiting
the Islands. They could step off their
steamer and, for fifteen or twenty
cents, be carried rapidly to Mount Tan

He went to the Collector, who refuted
to deliver the goods. He went to the

his goods. There is said to be a long

yarn is that two men had to put up

Mancos. In tho side ot sheer cliffs 2000 ftet above the river were bulk the
lomes of this ancient people. The only way of reaching them was by climb
Ing up from the second terrace below or down from above. In this region 1
counted 10S largo buildings, and I believe there are more than 100 moro of
them along tho river."
Dr. Colo located a pyramidal building containing 400 rooms, and In the
same district found another building built In the form ot the letter "Z." This
had originally been four stories high and had contained 1500 rooms. In this
building was found the bones ot a woman who must have been from seven
