WHAT HE WILL
The matter of a railway for the
homesteaders at Waipouli a n d
neighborhood does not exactly,
"swing in the balances," for it
seems likely that thev will get
something; but just what or how
many ranroatis uiey will get, or
when and unci r what circuni
stances are still uncertain quanti
ties. A representative of the Makce
Sugar Company has. in thcr past
few days, successfully invited a
number of homesteaders to sign
contracts fur the proposed Kealia
railroad. At the same time, Govern
or Pinkham last Thursday wrote
the tollowing Lt(er to Attorney
Eiauk E. Thomi son. at Honolulu,
the legal representative of the Li
hue Plantation Company:
"it is the intention of the Ad
ministration, to at the earliest pos
sible moment, define its general
policy toward chartered common
carrier transportation Companies.
This policy will be applicable to
the purposes of your clients who
have indicated their intention to
at once apply to the Legislature
for a charter to establish a railroad
on the East and South East sides
of the Island of Kauai, specify its
ultimate destination and terminal
shall be at the harbor of Nawiliwili
when a suitable deep water wharf
shall there be established. It is
understood this railroad shall con
nect with the government-owne.d
railway at Kapaa, where the gov
ernment mtv direct.
"It will be the policy of the
government to grant a free right
of way over all public lands sub
ject to the approval of the gover
nor, as is now the rule of the gov
ernment. "It will be the policy of the gov
ernment, where any lauds revert
to the government, to grant or
confirm any rights of way, pro
vided they are first approved In
"It will be the policy of the
go eminent to continue its cus
tomary approval of planting agree
ments between those termed home
steaders and the mill.
The railroad I regard strictlj as
a common carrier under govern
mental approved rates to be estab
lished without discrimination.
Pending organization a n d

ed by law, will grant a license on
an agreed right of way estaolished
on the above conditions.
