"It doesn't matter how many people

just the same. I shall not quit under
any circumstances." In these words
Charles Hustace Jr., Independent can
didate for mayor of Honolulu, stated
his position this morning. The state
ment was due to the publication of an
article to the effect that a petition to
which the names of 1000 white voters
in the Fourth District would be pre
fixed, asking Hustace to withdraw, is
in circulation.
"Why doesn't the Advertiser publish
the names of those who signed my
requisition, he continued, "instead of
trying to make capital out of one

Waxing warm, Mr. Hustace further
stated that if the petition was pre

an enterprise involving the filling and
grading of a large area of land near
Kakaako and the expenditure of
something -like $200,000.
While the supreme court's decision
may prove adverse to the territory,
which is the defendant in the suit,
this is not anticipated, and the . big
work probably will begin within the
next two tt three weeks. The con
tract already has been let to the
Lord-Young Engineering company,
which is merely awaiting this decision
before starting active operations.
The suit is in the nature of a test

quires this interpretation in case it

The suit ; was filed by Senator
Brown, who owns some land in that
neighborhood, several weeks ago, but
there has been some unavoidable de

that the contest between the three
candidates for mayor will be a close

Hilo Railroad
Passenger and Freight Busi
ness Indicates .Big In
crease Over 1911
For the twelve months ending June
30, 1912, the gross earnings of the
Hilo Railroad Company were $338,
379.S5, according to the thirteenth an
nual report of the president and board
of directors to the stockholders. Op
erating expenses were $181,335.24,
leaving earnings net of operating ex
penses $167,044.61. From this sum de
duct fixed charges of $125,913.45 and
there is left $31,131.16, to which add
net earnings of Hakalau extension dur
ing construction, $17,207.62, and there
remains as total earnings $48,338.78
for the fiscal year.
Gross earnings have steadily grown
since 1908, when they were $141,435.
45. to 1912, when they were $338,379,
85, and the, total net earnings over the
same period from $45,675.40 to $157,
044.61, except that there was a de
crease of $30 in the latter in 1911,
wben the increase in .gross earnings
was less than $35.
Total passenger earnings, including
mail, baggage and express, for -the
year just passed were $67,118.91, as
compared with $39,398.44 for the pre
vious year, an increase of $27,720.47,
or more" than 70 per cent.
3ig Freight increase.
Total freight revenue in 1911 was
$176,329.59, and for 1912 $232,465.85,
an increase of $56,136.26, or nearly 32
per cent. In 1911 there were 185,465
tons of freight hauled, and 241,475 in
1912, an increase of 56,010 tons, or 30
per cent. "Of the total tonnage of
freight hauled during the two years,"
says the report, "there were only 23,
281 tons of sugar in 1911 and 26,597
in 1912. Less than 12 per cent, of the
total freight in tons was represented
in sugar from Olaa. The completion
of the northern extension of the road
will gradually develop the miscellane
ous business along tne line, in freight
tonnage and passenger traffic."
During the fiscal year the stations
of Onomea, Kawainui, Pepeekeo, Ho
nomu and Hakalau were opened to
traftic. Up to writing of the report,

Delay On The
Not Believed Any Appointment
Will Be Made for Month
or More
That there will be a delay of a
month at least in action on the reap
pointment of Governor Frear is the
belief of those who have followed
Secretary Fisher's investigations here
closely and who are acquainted with
the circumstances.
Secretary Fisher will not go direct
ly from here to Washington, although
he will be at the capital in a compar
atively short .time. He stops at sev
eral places enroute.. Moreover, there
is a great mass of testimony to be
transcribed, some of which President
Taft may wish to see. This testi
mony will be several weeks in reach
ing Washington.
There seems a general expectancy
that Fisher will report to the PreslH
dent as soon as he reaches Washing
ton, but also there is a tendency to
believe that the President will not
act until after the election and very
possibly not until after Congress con
venes for the winter session.
