On Tobruary 15, the government will

U.-S. May Take Right-
Of-Way For Military
Road To Pearl City
Rumor has It that tho United
States Government may condemn n
right-of-way for a military road be
tween Honolulu and Pearl Harbor for
tlio purpose of transporting freight
and heavy nrmament. The verlllcn
Hon of this proposed action by the
authorities cannot be secured at this
date, but tbo 'truth of tho story has
been vouched for unulllrlally.
If such a move is taken by the Gov
ernment It will mean tho expendi
ture of a vast sum of money, not only
In the securing of property for the
roadway but In Its construction also. Articles of Incorporation of tho A.
for It would of necessity bo of the v. Arlelgh Company wcro filed yester

It Is stated that the reason for this
action by the Navy Department Is
because of the high prices that have
been submitted by railway companies
for transporting tho freight. Tho
Oabu Hallway & Land Company has
been conducting negotiations for this
work, but It Is understood that no
(on tract has been signed. Rumor
names tho price asked by the railway
company for hauling nil the freight

$8260. The capital stock Is $12,000.
