whole the part-Hawalians are becom

Besides Mr. Rath, the others who
were called upon this morning were
B. F. Dillingham, who told extensive
ly of his railroad operations here; A.
W. T. Bottomley, of Bishop & Co.,
who was asked about the homestead
lng operations around Olaa,' and II.
Gooding Field, the expert accountant,
who was: called on briefly to com
ment on whsre he considers local
conditions to need remedy. Mr. Field
said that .there la too much politics
in local government affairs, but gave
as his opinion that the larger inter-
ests here sincerely desire a change
in the direction of more efficient go?-
ernment but are handicapped because
they "are outvoted at the polls byjjt'to lapse by not beglmrmg 'work in
forces which stand for Incompetency
in office. Mr. Fisher asked Field if
ihev interests wou:J not exert' more
influence provided thejhould adopt
a policy of doing more M the smaller
fry. but Mr. Field did not answer this
one way or the other, saying he has
been a resident here buf a short time
and would not. undertake to talk cn
this point. ... v .
The secretary went into railroad op.
eratlons and financial history here to
a considerable extent, finally ask Jig
for financial statements from the com
panies, which Mr, Dillingham said te
would. be. very. glad to furnish. Dil
lingham declared that; 'the railroads
have no objectiom whatever to a pub
lic utilities commission to exercise su
pervision over .'.their operations pro
vided such a commission were made

nien? " "We welcome any, properly ap
pointed commission, he said;

somewhat upon the question of water

tail Mr. Dillingham expressed some
. doubt as to the feasibility, of home-
steading the government lands under

ham answered somewhat sharply that
. the road had developed this Island
from a point where taxes were around
$220,000 to a point wher, ethey are
close to two millions.
, '"It would have given; me great
pleasure to adjourn the hearing to-

- The Secretary r called his , attention
to the numerous .State railway com
missions on the mainland, which had
been generally commended and in
dorsed by: the railroads: themselves.
. "As v far as t am 1 concerned," or as
the local railroads Ure concerned, I
believe the appointment of a local
commission would be welcomed, If it
is deemed 'necessary. So far I be
lieve we have given satisfaction and
-can see no immediate necessity for
such" a body. ' ; v;. , rr
Fisher, tben took up tne quesuon oi
combination between the railways and
the steamship lines. -Mr. Dillingham
denied that any attempt had been
made at 'a combination that bordered
on" monopoly." He entered into a dis
cussion concerning the manner In
- which the various "steamship lines
uu.a giarieu uuu , uio nuiwujra uu
been built, giving a brief, history of
the enterprises.
As to tne financial results, ne saia
the Oahu line was started with ; a
capitalization of $700,000 'and Intend
ed to extend onlv abont 20 miles, or
to Ewal There was no apparent bus
iness in sight beyond that point The
franchise provided for a1 subsidy of
:" $700 a mile, granted after the first
15 miles should be bhllt. ' It was only
possible to .build it on bonds, and the
lirsi - jau.uvw wtib nuaeu m imj in
lands, v Seven" per cent bonds" were
sold amone the farmers. The $700' a
mile was ; paid only on the road b'e
yond the .first 15 miles. The - road
was finally extended to Kahuku, first
to Waianae, where a plantation was
already established. This was '' in
1893, he thought about' four or five
' years after the original line to Ewa
' had been built . r;,'4' y..v "i
i Stock was issued equal to the total
capitalization. , The road began to
pay dividends about ten or eleven
years alter its estaDiisnment wnen raies, saia n is me poucy oi me rau
the dividend reached' 12, per cent, the road to comply with all the require
capital stock was doubled. It wasiments of the interstate commerce act
again increased in 1907 and again In J believing that it was for the best in
1912. The original capitalization was ' terests of the company, as well as
$5,000,000. The last Increase was $1T-
000.000. '
- The present market value of the
company '8 bonds runs, he said, about
102 or 103. '
, The net earnings he said are about
11.000,000. The surplus dividend baa
largely gone Into new rolling stock
and extending the line.
Fisher asked if any of the original
stockholders ever paid into the treas
ury. Dillingham answered he could
not remember any large amounts thus
paid by stockholders. The Secretary
again asked if any of the stock now
outstanding had ben paid for by
actual cash, . turned into the com
pany's treasury. Dillingham replied
in the affirmative, and gave the name
of one man who had purchased his
stock outright
. Mr. Dillingham then gave a history
of the development, of the Hilo rail
way. That was an economical line,
easily constructed,' he asserted, cost
ing only about $20,000 "a mile. He
told how' he and his associates with
drew In favor of some others who
claimed to have several millions to
begirt work immediately. The oth
ers, who, he thought, were headed by
two men known as Gear and Brown,
obtained their franchise, but allowed
I rive years time.
Mr. Dillingham then told or going
to Governor: Carter f and taking up
with him the matter of the Hilo Rail
road construction, asking " 20 . years'
evemntlon from taxation as - one of
the encouragements. Carter favored
this for ten years anyway, and the
Legislature passed a bill - to this ef
fect. Mr. Dillingham stated briefly
how he sugge"sted to Gov. Carter that
in i view of the Obstacles of building
the road, the Government get, if pos
sible, the organic act changed so that
The . Territory could guarantee four
per cent on bonds for rail road a au-
thoH2Mt and - that -the read itself
should pay six per cent ou Its "bonds,
two Der cent" of which should go ior
a specific punose--bnil ding; and de
velopment of interior carriage roads
on Hawaii. He said the -only advan
tage to the railroad " wbiild be that
Ihe promoters could take this propo
sition to New York and sell itsDonas

"He thought it a very improper
proposition." said ; Mr. i Dlllingram.
saying there were a 'few holders' of
government bonds here who wouldn't
like it So we went ahead on our
nwn ftianeement" 1 He '. then dut
lined the financing of the Hilo road.
A four percent . dividend was paid
early in the history; of. the line, but
no dividend has been declared in re
cent, years, because the earnings did
not' warrant itv The net profits last
year, however, were about $SD,000 to
$35,000; while thir fear they were
. Asked about homesteadlng, Dilling
ham said he bfelieVed It would be a
cood thine to have more people here
if . Ihey -could, make : a; living. He
would naturally desire to from a rail-
ioaa BL&uuyuHu . i . - . ;
" "But I cannot see how it is going
to. do any good to uproot a system
that has cost so much to establish
and which is proving so successful In
a financial way, - to make room for a
lot of malfhlnls who' doh't understand
' Regarding " pineapples 5 as a crop, ' he
said It lias been only within, the last
few years It has had a: real test, but
thought It: would not prove practical
to the small homesteader because of
the great expense it entails. There
are only a' few known crops that are
known wlll.be successful, he aserted,
and that sets a large limitation on the
prospects : of, the homesteader..
Of the government lands on ; which
leases are expiring, V he thought- it
would be " a Tather daugerous experi
ment to open these" for homesteadlng,
seriously crippling the plantations.
The mills are expensive; propositions!
and the owners need control; of suf
ficient land to 'insure enough business
for the mills to make them -pay for
themselves. If the land,, goes to the
small farmers,; the mill owhers will
never have that 'assurance," because
they will never know how soon the
farmers -may 'turn to some .culture
other than cane. vv.-- "
; He admitted, 'however1, that there
are limitations to the land, that about
the only alterhate crop I is the pine
aDDle. Th Secrfelary 'informed him
that' others have testified that -land
best suited for sugar is generally not
ra success as pineapple land. ' "
'T presume r that is true," DUllng
ham admitted". ; .:
Attorney Ashf ord ; then questioned
the- railway man regarding the estab
lishment of the plantations along .the
Oahu railway line. Asked if any pro
moters stock was Issued on the , Ewa
Plantation.1 he reDlled:
"Well,- II there was, 4 1, didn't get
any." . ;.;;:.. . -'.' ;.-v; ':
. Mr. Dillingham . went into Ewa's f I
nancial history, saying It was capital
ized originally for a : half million,
which was a million or a million fend
a hair too low, ana wnea uasue ec
Cooke: had carried .'the plantation al
most to the point of suspension they
were finally able to raise more money
and later : the: capitalization was In
creased. ' He also told of Waialua's
inceDtlon. developed " from ! a cattle
ranch, the lease of which was held
by himself and Mark Robinson. The
railroad directors declined to take
this up as , a plantation proposition,
and Mr. Dillingham told how he him
self had taken hold of the proposition.
The Halsteaa' holdings Were secured
and a. fifty-year lease on Bishop1 es
tate land. He. incorporated the plan
tation when he let go for the value
to which it had been brought
; Ashford asked Jilmi "So that the
property which you secured for $25,-
000 was divided, the cattle sold to
the railroad - and the plantation for
two or three ! hundred thousand ' dol
lars f You mean you did that?" ;
Mr. Dillingham: "Yes; of course
1 did." v-.;'--'-- .
Mr. Dillingham in response to ques
,tIons by Ashlord a3 to the. railroad
for ; the public He then told of the
conditions under which the Wahiawa
extension was built under guarantee
of business from the pineapple grow
ers" and of the voluntary reductions
rade on the freight upon a schedule
previously agreed upon;
What Railroad Has Done.
Ashford questioned Dillingham fur
ther on the stock Issue- and ' dlrh
dends of the O. R. & X Co.
"Ill tell you what we paid for our
franchise." said Dillingham. "The
Government granted us this franchise
and we've bulk up the' tales on all
this ' Island from $220,000 in 189 to
between a million and a half or two
millions, which this government re
ceives from ,the efforts of one or two
men. Beyond the point .where the
railroad reaches on this Island, the
taxes hate remained about as they
were. That's what we paid for the
Stock. .. i I .'"v; ; ..
Questioned further, Mr. Dillingham
said . warmly : "I dont own all the
stock, Mr. Ashford. Humanity ' has
enjoyed the bleslns of this railroad."
- Ashford asked as to the trustees o
the bondholders and Mr.' Dillingham
said Governor Freaf. and R. ;W. At
Fisher asaed uuimgham . .. ii any
statement has been prepared and
made public showing the financial
condition of the 1 Oahu railroad, in
cluding the capital account Mr. Dil
llngham said; he did not know
whether this had , been publicly
shown since the start because of or
ganization and reorganization in the
early stages of the road, but; that It
can all be determined from an exam
ination of the books. ;ThQ annual , re
ports, he said, . show these accounts
in all their, details. . Mr. ' Fisher' said
be Is . anxious to get an accurate re
port showing what amount : of cash
money has been actually, put into .the
road In . con.struction, extension, etc
: On examination by Attorney' Olson
Mr. Dillingham said that Governor
Frear has been trustee for the Oahu
bondholders for some eight, years
"Well Mr. Dillingham." said Fisher
good,humpredly, "If you've got a road
with -the capitalization f you've men
tioned, your stock selling at 140, and
only , two millions of - bonds outstand
Ing, . we can safely: assume that the
duties of a trustee for. the bondhold
ers would , be rather .perfunctory."

a story of a" proposed partnership n

the white lad; as being beneath him.
Asked regarding the so-called Japan

In the city, who were, paid about
$1.50 a day, and that there was con
siderable competition for JMie JoW.
He said the larger boys rushed to the
O. R. & L. depot at 4 a. m. to get
tickets early and reach the planta

Asked by ' Attorney 'Ashford what
he thought the effect of $1.50 steady

Rath said 1 he could not answer, not
in answer to 'a question by Attor
