'V. A. Wall, the surveyor who has
been placed, In charge- of nil the opera

already made, the conclusion has been
reached tha,t the line must run along on
the upper lands of Kona and Kau be'
tween 1000 and 1400 feet above the level
of the sea. The Kona terminal has not
yet been decided on but It will undoubt
edly be at the very best landing place
that can bo found. As you know, there
Is a choice between Bome of the ports.
"The Kau terminal wilt be Pahnla

this land has already been opened up
but the gceat majority Is still In Its
'original shape, waiting for Just some
thing like a railroad to develop Its vast
resources. This will mean an untold
benefit to the owners. The railway Is
to pass through tracts of land owned
by the Kona Sugar Co., tho South Koua

Mr. Wall was asked If he knew any
thing about n proplstlon to connect
the Kona. Kau and Kohaln-lllo rail
way systems but he replied In the nega
tire. However, It has been learned on
good authority that, as soon as the ro.il
Is built, there wilt bo a proposltti
mado for such a connection. It will bo
but a step from that to a complete cir
cuit of the Dig Island.
As to the matter of stockholders In
tho proposed corporation, nothing can
be done until a charter for tho building
of the road Is obtained from the gov
ernment. However, It Is pretty well un
derstood that the great bulk of 'h
capital will come from Chicago. Mr.
Coerper will undoubtedly be tho big

Honolulu men will also hold a con
siderable, amaount of stock.

'It Is my firm belief that thero Is net

There Is no evidence to show that tho

likewise no evidence to show that theio
had been any Intimate connection be
tween Miss Schneider nnd Dennett. A
