Ins the little fellow was seen In the
Jail yard. He stated that the reason
he did not sail with the W. If. Dlmond
on which vessel ho had been shipped by
his father was because the cook on the
vessel had pulled his ears and slapped
him And threatened to break his back
when he got him to sea. He had taken

And Talks of Benefits
in Franchises for '
KONA PLANTATION ARE
. BROUGHT INTO WAR
Castle Now Visiting Mainland Sup
posedly to Secure Outside Capital
Takes Up Argument in
J. L. Coerper, promoter of the Kona
Kan railway Is disposed to believe that
Mr. Achi has not told the whole story
In connection .with tho popular desire
for railways In the district of Kona,
Hawaii. As a further explanation of
the situation, Mr. Coerper jiave the fol
lowing statement to the, luUctin this
morning: ' .
"In reply to Mr.,Achl'H article of is
terday In the Star. I will say, nrpt,
"Anybody who had read the former
articles of Mr, Acbl. can notice fur
themselves, that be increased his own
ership from time to time.
"Second: It Is n fact that I spoke
to Mr, Achi about the trntter ot cutting
up part of his lands for homesteads, as
be told to me about the fine lands he
had. But after an Investigation of
tbrco days hard ride, I found no valu
able lands as I was told I would find.
However, there may be some valuable
lands underneath the lava flaws.
"Third: It Is none of my affairs
whatsoever, how much Mr, Achi paid
for his lands, or Invested thereon. It
mutt como out ot his pocket and docs
not concern me or my supporters.
"Fourth: Whoio the nigger Is I may
state shortly. Tho Kona Sugar Com
pany Is not concerned In this matter
at all. They have the right of way nnd
even If a railroad compiny was started,
does Mr. Achi mean to say that the
Kona 8ugr Company, under the-fran
chise he asks for. could condemn (And
of small holders?"
"Fifth: Who does Mr. Achi call
'wo'? Does ho mean the Kona Sugar
Company nnd the South Kona Agricul
tural Company and himself? Docs he
know who aro tho shareholders of tho
Kona Sugar Company or their Ideas?
"Sixth: I have no idea of bringing
any families in misery on Mr. Achl's
lands after I Import them here. I can
get all the lands that nro necessary
for 1000 and more farmers to make a
good living, without Mr. Achl's lands.
"Seventh: The $2,000,000 bird Is not
In my pocket as I have not been as for-1
tunnto as Mr, Achi and bis Associates.
But I should like to bilng In outsld
capital to that amount, which will bn
mostly expended here for the benefit of
the public This sccmi better than
skinning the home country, whero It
Is a fact thnt the capital for such an
undertaking cannot be procured. Why
did Mr. Castle go to the, Coast to float
the South Kona Company? Why does
ha not get home capital wttb Mr. Achl'i
"Eighth: I think Mr. Achi needs
English schooling first, If he claims
that we ask for exclusive franchise.
Or does ha say things, without read
ing and first examining into what ho Is
going to talk about? Where does the
monopoly come In, when tho Hllo rail
road company already has a franchise
for the wholo of the Island of Hawaii?
Surely In Mr, Achl's game. Ho wants
a franchise for self protection and to
use tho same to giro two other cor
porations tho right to condemn smnll
holders' lands for their own benefit
This ho thinks can be dono under som
"Ninth: I never had any desire to
become a Huntington, I havo worked
honestly In every way, and surely when
It concerned Hawaii, where I havo been
a citizen and resident for twenty-two
years, no one can say that I hnve not
done my duty when It concerned tht
"Tenth: Tho private affair comes In,
when a man asks for a thing that he
i will only use for himself, not consider
ing others. Why do Mr. Acbl and his
associates want five yenrs tlmo to
finish ten miles of road? At the end of
thirty years, If ho will live thnt long,
bo might havo his sixty miles of road
on his and Mr, Castlo's proposed plan
tation, Hut where Is tho benefit to
tho public coming In?
"Eleventh: Speaking of tho fair
prlco, when a man has tho right by a
franchlso from the legislature and
government to condemn lands, It has
been known for ages what the prtct
"Twelfth: I sco Mr. Acht is willing
that I should get n franchlso, Hut why
Is he not willing to dcsl fair with tho
public and bind himself to finish tho
sixty miles of roid ho speaks ot
through Konn and Kau , within five
years after the approval of Congress?
Or, docs ho think to Infringe on the
public, and build for his own benefit,
first ten miles, and leave tho rest to
his own discretion to be built when
ever he fcols like It? Why does he not
say where his road will begin nnd end
within a certain time? If he has such
good intention, these details should bo
frankly stated. Why does ho not
define himself In his bill as I do? I pro
poso to start at a given point nnd finish
the wholo' within three years, a dis
tance of eighty or one hundred mile.
I wish to see the nigger soon.
"Thirteenth: I shall call Mr. Achl's
affair a private one as long ns I can
not .see either beginning or end. but
simply got up for tho purpose of dam
aging my concern and Infringe on the
nubile for the sake of n few dollars hi
wishes to save for his south Kona piftn
"Fourteenth In regard, to my back
ing, I will gle n few names of my
Associates, with their ronsent. It Is a
wonder to mo that Mr Achi keeps on
speaking of an exclusive franchise.
Does ho not know as .in nttorncy. that
such cannot be got. even from tho
Legislature. Or does he Intend to
throw sand Into the eyes of tho pub
lic? As rcanrds Mr. Achl's self pro
tection, I wish to kn'jw whero It
romes In. There Is one plantation at
present which has the right of way for
a road, the other Is far from sight yet.
but may romc by securing outside capi
tal, which Mr. Achi hates so much.
Now comes n railroad scheme. Does
Mr. Achi mean to say thnt he will us
the right asked for in the franchlsn
bill, for condemning small holders'
land for the benefit of those planto-
tlonS? Will the public Stand SUCh
an Infringement on its rights nnd nl-jth(, ttuWn ot whlt0 vvope wien lie
low him to trample upon the tnalljwuil perfectly comctont to rulo tho
land htOdeiB fur his own benefit? I nrin.ol herself. Mr. Achi was nnother

Senator Achi Talks
On Kohala Railroad
W. C. Achi Mild last night that he ex
pected his bill for n franchise for
railroad on Hawaii, ould reported
favorably from the Senate commltteo
today. The Senator explained that tho
railroad proposlttoln which he Is push
ing In tho Senuto grew nut of the posi
tive need of a railroad to accommo
date the plantations.. He said they had
waited until Inte In the session of the
Legislature, expectln; tho Coerper
propocltllon to' come to the front. "As
nothing was doing." eulit Mr. Achi,
"we got our heads together and de
cided we would have to build the road
ourselves. We had faith In the Coer
per road, Now he Is making a lot ot
noisa about our effort to shut him nut.
"I am tree to say that wo want a
road becauso it will enbnncc the value
of our property as It will Increase
values of nil property nlong tho line.
W must have n franchlso in order to
extend our road across lands which wo
do not own, I have not fought Mr.
Coerper's franchise. I say give him
franchise, but give us one too. We have
little faith In tho statement that he has
$2.00.000 behind his scheme. All we
want Is a railroad and wo are. sure we
wll havo It if we Jiulld It ourselves."
