NEW PALI ROAD
tie Bi Riflie Blown
ROCKS AND EARTH REMOVED
Success of Blasting Oper
Large Number of Spectators Pres
ent Contractors Are Well
Upwards of . 200 people rode, djore;
walked or pedalled, up toJheTall yes
terday afternoon to" see the big ledge
of rocks blown out into space. Two of
the brothers of St Louis College
had a number of pupils at the
summit, and they walked all the
way. President Dole made the trip
horseback and showed the keenest in
terest in the work; strangers, malahi-
nis and kamaainas were there, and ev
ery one pronounced the blast a success.
The ledge was the large one on the
right, about 1,000 feet from the top of
the Pali, beginning from the road and
extending at an angle of 40 degrees to
a point where the clouds come down
to eartn. . The portion blasted was
from a point where the narrow trail
marks the line of the new,: road, and
extending about 500 feet straight up
the slope. In all, there were 19 holes
bored to ah average depth of 20 feet, in
each of which was placed from 100 to
250 pounds of black powder. There was
but one exception: the eighth hole
from the end, for some reason, had 150
sticks of giant powder, and this blast,
while making the loudest , report,
ioosened no more rock than the others.
The blasts were booked for 2 p. m.,
and at that hour the crowd was ready
to take observations, but, one of the
holes was not ready, so the crowd wait
ed and the people occupied their time
watching the preparations from the
top of the Pali. One lady permitted
her little child to climb to the stone h
wall and throw rocks down the hill.
This act of casting temptation into
the face of fate prompted some of the
bystanders to make mental calcula
tions as to how long it would take the
kid to go to the bottom, provided it
should slip while the mother was away.
Then shouting was heard from the di
rection of the ledge, and half a dozen
white flags in the hands of as many
employes were seen fluttering. These
were signals that everything was . in
readiness for lighting the fusees, and
the laborers began to scatter. Johnny
Wilson was seen to hang by the rope
that has been used to help tie boys up
the incline. Quickly he ran along the
trail, followed by Henry Crane. When
they reached the point where the crowd
had assembled, they waved their flags
and the stately form of L. M. White
house, with W. G. Gorham, Joe Cuni
and Charlie Winchester as a back
ground, came into view. Whitehouse
shouted again to the men below, waved
his arms and started upward. Cuni
went down to the first hole and the
A little later a curl of white smoke
was seen coming out of the ground,
then another and another, so near to
each other that their smoke mingled
together. Joe Cuni's part of the work
was done, and he made his way down
the bank and around the corner.
Then Winchester took up the trail, and,
with a lighted cigar, touched off the
fusees of three more. Gorham was
next with three; then he joined White
house, and the two would dart up the
steep hill for a short distance, stoop
down and start' another fuse, and a
curl of smoke would shoot skyward
When these two reached the top they
were mere pigmies in size to the eyes
of the spectators, and the ledge had
the appearance of the sulphur banks
at the Volcano.
Scarcely had Whitehouse and Gor
ham disappeared from view when there
was a roar and a mighty upheaval of
earth and lava. Thousands of pieces of
rock, from the size of an egg upward
to that of a window, were loosened and
shot out into the valley a thousand
feet or more from the bed they had
rested in for time immemorial. Down
ward rushed the tons of red dirt and
boulders like a torrent of water and
carrying sticks and trees with it to the
bottom of the gulch. This blast closed
the old road forever not for a month
as Minister King ordered. The first
explosion was at 3:08 p. m., and in 15
minutes the finale was rung off. From
start to finish there was an almost
constant roar, caused by the rock and
loose soil rolling down the mountain.
Tnis had hardly ceased when sharp
cannonading was heard coming from
the other side of the ridge. About 10
blasts, smaller than the 19, were sent
off, but they nwere not in view of the
In the main blasts the tendency of
the smaller rocks was upward and out
ward across the old road and far out
into the valley; only, once did they
come in the direction of the spectators,
and then not near enough to cause any
alarm. It was estimated that nearly
8,000 tons of rock and earth were sent
down the mountain by means' of the
19 blasts, to accomplish which more
than 3,000 pounds of black powder and
50 pounds of giant powder (75 per cent
nitro-glycerine) were used. Contractor
Wilson was seen last night and asked
as to the success of the affair from the
standpoint of a contractor.
"It was a success in every way, and
Mr. Whitehouse and myself, are per
fectly satisfied. It is gratifying to us
that such large blasts could be set off
and such a volume of rock removed in
the presence, of so many people with
out a single accident You know," con
tinued . the young man, "we promised
to 'give the show' at 2 p. m., but the
rain we had last night got into the
holes and gave us a lot of trouble. One
of thenuwe-could not clean out even
after working three-quarters of an
hour at it so we decided to use giant
powder. You remember it the noisy
fellow that threw out the big boulders.
CONTRACTORS AND BUILDERS
Whitehouse? Oh, he's tickled to death.
He and Gorham reached the top of the
ridge just as the first charge went off;
severe rumble followed, and 'they
thought the entire ridge would give
way, so they went down the other side
as far as they could, counted reports
and waited results. When they found
the ridge was not going to tumble they
climbed back and surveyed the debris.
"The ridge for almost its entire
length along the side where the blast
ing was done has been so loosened that
we will have no difficulty in removing
it with picks or bars. We are well sat
isfied and the road will be completed in
PATCH EN WINS FROM POINTER
A Match Race for a Big Parse at
: s Milwaukee.
MILWAUKEE, September 22. Joe
Patchen easily defeated Star Pointer
two out of three heats at the fair
grounds today. Pointer won the first
heat in 2:03, breaking the State rec
ord. The big bay acted badly in the
second and third heats, and Patchen
got the 2000 purse.
Patchen got the pole in the first heat
after several bad starts. They had gone
but a few yards when Patchen broke
and and did not get down to business
again until he reached the three
eighths pole, after which he gained
on Pointer, but the latter passed under
the wire a winner by two and a half
lengths. Time by quarters, 0:31
In the second heat Star Pointer had
the pole. Just as the quarter was reach
ed he began to break and made a very
poor showing the rest of the distance,
Patchen leading him at the finish by
several lengths with ease. Time' 2: 11.
In the third heat Star Pointer was
again on the pole and proved to be an
easy thing for Patchen. The starter
had barely said the word "Go!" when
Pointer commenced to break, and the
heat was won by Patchen without any
exertion in 2:07.

OF THE NEW PALI ROAD.
the company's debt to the United
States will be accepted. The Govern
ment mortgage will be foreclosed, the
road sold and the company reorganized.
This statement is made on the highest
authority. For some days recently the
President had been in conference with
the representatives of the company
and with the Attorney General, and be-
fore he left Washington he agreed to
the sale of the road and the reorgani
zation upon the basis upon which the
Reorganization Committee suggested.
The announcement of the decision
may be looked for at an early date. It
will come in an order for foreclosure,
issued by President McKinley to the
Secretary of the Treasury. The agree
ment to which the President has de
cided to give his sanction is the same

this has not yet been advanced by. the
United states. The interest paid by
the Government amounts to $36,954,
The agreement for. a foreclosure
sale also contains a provision for the

bonds, $75,000,000 of preferred stock
and $61,000,000 of common stock.
It is said that the reorganization of
the company will be effected immedi
ately atter tne roreciosure sale, as
plans for it have already been made.
AGREE TO DIVIDE.
Understand lnc Made to Control-, the
LONDON, September 21. The Rome
correspondent of the Daily News says:
It is learned from a high source that
Germany's want of alarm over the
Franco-Russian alliance is thought to
be due to an existing understanding be
tween Russia, Germany, France and
Austria about the Levant which has
been made with a view to future events
leading up to changes in the Levant
and which deals wih their several por
tions m the eventful division.
Germany finds her satisfaction in
security from attack. She will thus be
at leisure to develop her internal re
sources. Efforts are making to induce
Italy to join the league, whichit is as-
serted, does not look with displeasure
upon the prolongation of the present
situation, that leaves an opening for
startling complications if considered
advantageous to the four powera. So
the settlement of the Cretan question
will not be so quick and simple as pre
dicted. It is asserted that Russia will
propose that the Governor of Crete be
a Turk. ' " - "

want to pay for labor in silver, like
other silver countries. Selling their
products abroad for gold, they will pay
off their laborers in silver, and - make
the profit of the difference in value." J
Returning to McLaurin . and hl3
course in the Senate, Judge Mackey
said: "The young Senator's vote, with
those of some other Democrats, will bo

annexation measure. As eight Repub

postmasterships in the Southern States
is concerned, I will frankly say that
