There promises to be a sharp com
petition in the mntter of railroad con
struction on the leeward sldo of Ha
waii. J. L. Coerpcr, as is generally
known, has had on foot for some time
plans for the construction of a railroad,
connecting North and South Kona.
Ills roadlhas been spoken of oh the Ko-na-Kau
railroad and It Is understood
thatae has back of him u powerful
Gefraan syndicate. In which his broth
er Is a leading figure. ,Tfi preliminary
survey Is n,ow nearly tompletc.
T.wo days ago, Senator-Acht Intro
duced. In 'tho Senato a bill which had
for lis purpose the securing of a fran
chise to build a road connecting North
and South Kona, Hawaii, The appli
cants for this franchise nro J, ..I. Mc
Chcsney, W. A. Greenwell and W. O.
Mr. Achl talked freely about the mat
ter to a Ilulletln reporter. Ho said'
the purpose of securing the franchise,
was not to antagonize tho Coerper
railroad but to protect the interests of
the parties behind this second proposi
tion. Mr. Achl owns and controls a
large amount of land in both North and
South Kona and the Castles, who are
also behind the railroad scheme have
extensive holdings of plantation lands
which are on the line of the proposed
"We aro not asking for nn exclusive
franchise," said Mr. Achl. "We do not
care how many railroad franchises are
given In that locality. All we want Is
protection for our own Interests. The
parties who aro Interested In the pas
sago of the bill I Introduced aro tho
owners of plantations, which will fur
nish the bulk of business to any road
that may bo constructed between North
and South Kona.
Tho road wo propose to build nt first
will bo about sixty miles In length,
running from South Kohaln to 'knu.
It will be a 3-foot gaugo ond Its main
business will be derived from tho two I
plantations which It will connect. I
"Tho fact that wo own bo much of
the land along the route gives us as
surance of the right of way, which tho
possessors of any other franchise
would not have. This guarantees tho
building of the road, Just as soon as
Congress ratifies the franchise, which
we have asked the Legislature to
"No corporation for the construction
of the road has yet been formed, but
ns soon as tho franchlso is secured, tho
company will be formed. It will be
baiked by somo of the heaviest capi
talists In tho Islands,"

THE IIELDNE'8 DAMAGE.
After discharging moat of her freight
on tho quarantine wharf the steamer
Helena was pit on tho marlno railway
yesterday for repairs to her rudder
step mado necessary by contact with a
rock at Laupnhoehoo Inst week. That
It was the, merest ovcldeut that the ves
sel was (njuied was proven by tho Im
pression of tho rock on her rudder
etep. Had tbo steamer been six Inches
further ahead or In tho swell had she
not pitched 00 low by half an Inch sho
would not havo been injuicd. As It Is
her rudder step Is badly bent and It
will bo an exponslvo and tedious Job
to straighten It out agnlu.
It was decided today that It would
be necessary to send tho Helono to San
Francisco for repairs as they could not
bo made satisfactorily here. This will
be done as soon as a rudder can be Im
provised that will allow of tho vessel
making the trip. Superintending En
gineer William Johnson of tho Wil
der Company will go up In the Helcne
and tho repairs will bo made atl.thc
Union Iron Works. Tbo Helcne will
leave next week.

had been In the Legislature for years
nnd that he bad never known any
thing to be accomplished through night
sessions. Mr. C. Drown also spoke
against the resolution. Although the

Charge of the
Miss Rose Davidson, assistant secre
tary ot the Board of Education will In
all probability be chosen to accompany
the Hawaiian school exhibit to tVo
Pan-American Exposition at Buffalo.
This fact was brought out yesterday
when Senator Carter introduced a bill
n the Senate providing an appropria
tion of J3.o00 tor the purpose of send
ing the school exhibit to Buffalo.
Carter's bill was prcicnted without
even the formality ot notice, and thi
Senators on both side took the propo
sition favorably and thero Is no doubt
but that the appropriation will b
rushed through without opposition. To
Senator Carter "belongs the credit for
prompt action In this matter which Is
of great Importance to the Territory.
Ho accidentally dropped In upon th
Educational Department and saw tin
splendid exhibit that has been prepared
by the pupils and pedagogues of thu
Territory. Ho saw the merit and valuu
of the display and took Imniedlato
steps In the Senato to provide the wn
for transferring the collection to Buf
falo. The choice of Miss Roso Davidson to
go lu chargo of tho exhibit Is a guar
antee that tho work will bo wisely and
effectively exploited at tho Exposition.
