Dohrmann made In 1909:
"The United States government has
spent' a good deal of money on the
Islands already. and large contracts
forwthe' Improvement! of Pearl Harbor
and other matters connected with the
future naval station there have either
been given y out or are about to be
called for.
"A new government building is to
beerected7 a cost of several hun
dred thousand dollars shortly.
"Fortifications are being erected at
the foot -of Diamond Head and else
where rand a considerable number of
Roldiers.' as well a sailors will bo

and a numUr of government officials j
connected with both the army and i
navy, even as engineers and others,
will be permanently required on the
"I understand, for instance, there
will be several bands connected with
tho army located in Honolulu.
'This, will bring much money into
circulation there, and will make Hono

to Its attraction for tourists more than
anything that has yet happened down
"Finally, wnehever the Panama can

After a conference this morning
with Land Commissioner Joshua Tuck-
e and Surveyor W. E. Wall, during
which he inspected the map of tlT?
Walakea leased lands near Hilo, the
Governor announced that (the tract of
approximately 216 acres which The
V.'aiakea Mill Company recently re
leased gratis and which the govern
ment now Intends opening for sale as
residence lots, is the 'tract which he
discussed with the citizens of Hilo

j September, and is the land which they
said they wanted to help Hilo grow,
It appears, from dispatches from
Kilo, that this particular tract, which
is a part of an old lava flow and con
sequently very rocky and unproduc

' highways, is extremely unsatisfactory

Owner of Keaau Tract on Ha

"What's in a name?
Tq W. H. Shipman, owner of the
Keaau lands on the Island of Hawaii

one, letter In a certain proper noun
may mean the addition of about two
square miles of land to his domain.
By the same token, that difference
may act contrariwise on the tern -
For a long time there has been
doubt and is yet, for that matter
concerning the boundary between the
Keaau lands ih the Punu district, and
the government's land at Waiakea.
When the grant of the former was
made during the oid monarchy this
j boundary was describcl ns evtendin?
.along a mawae, or fissure, in the lava
, flow toward the sea in the general
direction of the ancient Hawaiian
'temple of Kawiakawa. At least that
appears to have been the general un
derstanding. j The lam' suth of that boundarv b

followed the granting of the original

The Canadian Pacific Railroad has
decided upon a new departure in con
nection with the first sailings of the
"Empresses," two new liners which
have just been completed and which
will be ready for service early next
summer. The C. P. R. will divert the
ordinary course of sending the vessels
around Cape Horn to make the start
in the Pacific service from Vancouver,
and instead have arranged attractive
round-the-world trips for their first
voyage. A start will be made from
Southampton, England, and the
"Empress of Russia" will be the first
vessel to sail on April 1. while the
"Empress of Asia" will leave the
English port on May 27. Both the
steamers will call at Port Said, Glb
ralter, Suez, Colombo, Panang, Sing
apore, Hong Kong, Yokohama, and
other points of interest and arrive at
Vancouver two months later.
Arrangements have been made for
adian and American ports in time to
adian and America nports in time to
catch the Empresses and the fare for
the round trip, exclusive of the cost
of hotel expenses in England ana
berths and meals on the C. P. R. R.
will be $630.10. According to a state-
i ment made this morning by Secretary
Wood of the local promotion com-
i nnttee, the committee win at once get
i in touch with W. G. Annable, general
j passenger agent of the Canadian Pa
jcific Railroad at Montreal, urging that
j Honolulu be included in the itinerary
of the two vessels. The dates of the
sailing of the two vessels from Eng
land would bring the passengers to
Honolulu too late for tne floral
Parade and Mid-Winter Carnival, but
nevertheless. Secretary Wood is of
!the Pinion tnat the tourists would
never regret me inp.
These two verbis are sister ships I
and 590 feet long. f0 feet beam, with j
gross tonnage of IP. 850, and have a
speed of 20 knots per hour. They are
the first vessels with cruiser sterns,
a feature which is especially adapted
for speed, besides securing more
room for the various decks.
