No estimate of the time It will take to complete the work can be given by the . company at' this time, owing to present' shipping facilities and the dif ficulty In having orders for equipment filled on the mainland. At present the double tracking on King street extends from the cane fields just ewa of the Palama fire sta tion to Kawalahao street, near Ka waiahao church.
