RAILROAD ritOHl'KCTS. President l'cck or Kohtila-llllo Railroad Talks or Ills Trip. Mr. Philip Peck, President of the Kohala & liilo Railroad returned on the Mongolia from San Francisco, making close connections with the Kinau nud arriving in Hilo Thursday night. He expressed himself ns being much grntl fied with the result of his trip east, nud while unwilling to make any definite promises us to the outcome ofhls visit to New York, he accomplished very much In the short time at his disposal. He was only three days In New York, but during that time took up the railroad project with eastern capitalists who as sure him of their ability to dispose of the whole or patt of the bond issue. Two trust companies, one 111 Pittsburg and the other in New York are rivals for the privilege of placing the bonds, but he re fused to give cither n binding option for any given length of time. Owing to the custom of banking and financial institutions In the east closing up their business for the year from Jan uary 1st to 10th, Mr. Peck said nothing could be accomplished by his riiniinhV longer in New York, and lie had return cd to the islands to be present at the stockholders meeting, which occurs in Honolulu on January 23rd. At that time the proposition made by the two trust companies will be ltild before the Com pany, nnd he hoped before the end of the mouth to close ucgotlatians with one or the other of the parties bidding for the bonds. Mr. Peck was much provoked by the two suits against the railroad which had been pressed to judgment during his absence, nud was frank to confess the in formation which had been cabled to him that an attempt was being made to Issue execution against the leasehold and terminal site, had very greatly embar rassed his operations in the East. If the persons behind these actions had the prosperity and best interests of the com munity at heart, neither would hamper the railroad project with embarrassing litigation. Referring to the merits of the two claims, Mr. Peck said the indebted ness for which these two suits were brought, were incurred prior to his tak ing hold of the project and if correct, they would ultimately be paid. The railroad is not now, however, in n posi tion to meet these claims, und he re gretted exceedingly that the parlies interested had begun legnl proceedings. The suits referred to were those of Walker & Howland and of J. VS.. Fuller ton, if both of which cases judgments had been rendered against the Kohala Hilo Railroad. ' Mr. Peck spoke of the prevailing snow storms in the Eastern States, causing the City of New York an expense of $380,000 to remove the snow which had fallen in 24 hours. They employed 13,000 men during the day and 10,000 men at night and 4,000 teams to get the business streets clear of snow, which im peded railroad and street travel. He I returns in the best of spirits, much im proved in health aud appearance and expects shortly to be able to make public 1 a report 01 ills trip wliich will restore confidence in the much delayed railroad from Hilo to Mahukona. 1 Dissolution or Partnership. Frank E. Thompson of Honolulu came to Hilo last Thursday nnd formnlly took I charge of the nffairs of the Hilo Wine & I Liquor Co , having been appointed tern porary receiver by the First Circuit Court in proceedings in equity institated by ' Seely I.

Canario of Hilo. doing n ' wholesale liquor business in Honolulu ! under the name of Shaw & Co., and in Hilo uuiler the name of Hilo Wine & ' Liquor Co. They also operate a general retail business with branch establish. I meiits in Hilo nnd Olan. There has betu considerable friction between the partners j for some time, to such an extent that they have been unable to agree as to the terms of dissolution. Tlie disagreement has rebuked in throwing the whole matter into court, the appointment of a temporary receiver and a division of the assets of the firm. No question has been raised as to solvency of the firm and It is stated that it..,-.. r. .! ,urr;niii.. i.. i ' in.. i- nu itiiuv.uiii.iwo 111 mc way 01 final adjustment of the differences be ,, " I tween the two partners. E. E. Richards has been placed in charge of the local establishment, by mutual agreement be tween the parties, and as soon the diffi culties between the two partners ure arranged, J. S. Canario expects to resume business on his own account in Hilo. Both the Olaa Saloon and the Hilo Saloon, as well as the" Hilo Wine and Liquor Co., are open and doing business as usual. From outward appearances, an outsider would never suspect nuy change had occurred in the management. Mnttoou Rejected.
