and cunty engineer, for the biennial
reriod cf'l'il5-16 ha. been handed to
Mayer John XV I-ane. After telling
what the department baa done It givca
a number of suggestions for the better
ment of the derailment and also an
estimate of the amount of money
which would be needed to put all the
prin.lpal roads on Oah i In first class
The rejort ays that the department
ban undei'. mf ruction by virtue of
the frontage ux law $H0,ilti.7 worth
of 'street Iraroemrnts of which the
city will pay im.ZlG.W and the prop
erty bolder whom the improvements
are to benefit $321,401.67, wblch. on an

Collins then recommends the follow
ing three posoible revisions ;of the
frontage tax law:
Some method w hereby It is possible
to award a contract immediately after
receiving bids for the work, allowing
the remaining steps In the proceedings
to follow after construction has com
menced. '. '
A change in the amount of the bond
exacted from the contractor from 100
jer cent to 60 per cent of the amount
of contract. The 100 per cent bond
unnecessarily Increases tle cost of im
provement work.
A provision whereby the city of
Honolulu may furnish crushed , rock
and other materials to the contractor
on any improvement in lieu of a cash
contribution as its share toward the
improvement. This looks forward to
the time when the city shall own its
own quarry - and operate an efficient
rock crushing plant.
There are 474 miles of roads in the
city and county of Honolulu exclusive
or lanes and alleys, 234 being con
tained within the city limits. In the
city there are 185,95 miles of improved
streets and 48.03 unimproved and in
the country districts 128.5 improved
and 42.5 unimproved. ; ' I
It is estimated by Collins' that It
will take $2,309,750 to complete the
road system, $1,179,750 in the city of
Honolulu and $830,00 for the belt road.
Of the former amount $528,500 would
be borne by the county. ;

; Here i another snglc on the cele
brated. Japanese 'mystery freighter"
Kotohlra Maru. which left Honolulu
at 6:15 Wednesday morning for Yoko
hama, after bunkering here. - She ar
rived Monday morning direct from
Manzanillo,. Mexico, where she unload
ed either ammunition or munition
making machinery brought from Ja
pan for the Carranza government
The following news story. Associat
ed Press correspondence from Tokio
says the Kotohlra will carry from Ja
pan to Mexico not. only ammunition
for rifles, but field artillery and ma
chinery for agricultural and industrial
purposes. The kotohlra Is now re
turning in ballast to Japan, having
turned down offers of 160fr tons .of
cargo made her by Honolulu shippers.
The Associated Press story is as fob
lows: v.:; ..r
TOKIO, Japan. Considerable inter
est has been caused in Japan by the
arrival and activities of three Mexi
cans, who represent the government
of Gen.1' Carranza, and who are said
to he making extensive purchases In
behalf of their country. According to
the information at Tokio the prospec
tive purchases' include munitions of
war ammunition, rifles and artillery
and a steamship, in addition to ma
chtaeryfot agricuTtur'ar ahd : Iridus-"
trial purposes. ' . - '
The Mexican agents,vwho 'are" in
charge of CoJ. Carpio, are reported to
have succeeded in their quest for
rifles and even .for a steamship. Itj
had been understood that they . were I
negotiating for the freight steamer!
Kotohlra Maru, a vessel of some 3000
tens, and the announcement that this
steamer;: cleared from Yokohama on
January 2, with its declared destina
tion as Salina Cruz, Mexico, was ac
cepting In some quarters as proof that '
the negotiations were 8UcceBfuL The
manifest gave the cargo as general
merchandise and machinery, but the
report was current in Tokio that the
vessel had on board a number of rifles, ;
estimated at 23,000, consigned to the
Carranza government This report
could not be confirmed here. - j
Jn response to inquiries by The As-;
soclated Press the Mexican legation
at Tokio denied that the . Kotohlra
Maru carried any rifles. The legation
admitted that tHe. steamer had sailed
for Mexico but said that her cargo
was confined to general merchandise
and machinery- consigned to a com
pany in Mexico, . The legation added
that Mexico had" been seeking rifles
but had been, unsuccessful, as all the
available weapons had been purchased
by the ; Entente Allies. The legation
confirmed the departure of the Koto
hlra Maru. saying it was under charter .
to a Japanese , firm. . ' -
It Is believed here that the Mexican
government recently opened a credit
in Japan of $1,000,000 .for . the- trans-'
action of, general business. During the (
presidency of Gen. Huerta the gov-!
ernment of Mexico opened negotia
tions with Japanese firms for the pur-1
chase of rifles and ammunition, de
positing some 3,000.000 yen for. that
purpose in the country. About 12.000.
rifles, modelled after the1 Spanish in-
fan try weapon, were actually deliver-!
ed to the Huerta government but be-'
fore other consignments were pos
sible the European war broke out
This Interfered, with" the delivery of
further orders to Mexico. Some 60,
000 rifles originally Intended for that
country were sold to Russia and
France and the weapons that went to
Russia ' are now being used by the
Russian troops on duty in Northern
Manchuria. , " '
AMSTERDAM, Holland. Several
buildings of the famous Cockerill
works at Seraing, five miles southwest
of Liege, Belgium, have been destroyed
through an incendiary fire, the news
paper Leg Nouvellea says. The loss

works and machine shops, making it ;
one of the largest In Europe, will bo
110,000,000, it is eetimated.
