Five and a half miles from Waipahu railroad station and only five miles from Wahiawa, the "Pineapple Pla teau, a construction gang of the Oahu Railroad was working yesterday with might and main to bridge a chasm so that the locomotive on the Waipahu side could cross and leave more new steel rails and ties with which to carry the line on to the pineapple district. Ten days from tomorrow that same gang win be laying the last rails a Wahiawa and then freight cars from Honolulu laden with cans and con tamers, boxes ana much other mer chandise will be carried over the line nd left at Wahiawa for the planters who are now ready to harvest their pines and ship them to all parts of the world The work of the construction gangs at the farthest end of the railway line so far completed toward Wahiawa is an object lesson in fast, sure and gen uine work. There are no laggards there and every moment of the day is devoted to activity. "Forward" is the watchword, and those in charge of the work set an example by perform ing labor with their own hands as well as directing it. After many vexatious delays the work of laying track began a few weeks ago, after the arrival of the ship George Curtis from San Francisco. The rails were originally shipped in the bark Gerard C. Tobey which put back to San Francisco dismasted. They were transferred to the Curtis, which was damaged in a collision off the -Faral-lones and was forced to return to San Francisco for repairs. The connecting point for the Wahi awa branch will be at Waipahu sta tion. The station has a pretty setting of cocoanut trees and .a-group of quaint Chinese and Japanese stores nearby, while all about are fields of rice and sugar cane. A spur runs up to the mill of the Waipahu plantation and there the Wahiawa line parallels the plantation railway. In order that trains will not have to De dispatched in reversed order a Y is being constructed between Waipahu station and the plan tation. ' The Wahiawa line then leaves the plantation mill, going through a portion of the sugar lands and after rounding a bald, rocky, towering point, swings into Waikakalaua gulch. A pumping sta tion for the plantation is encountered just after rounding the point. A great pipe leading from the station crosses above the track on high stone piers and climbs the hill to the main sugar , i . .. . . . . . i F 0 We have built our reputation largely on our lace and em broidery sales.

TREASURE-LADEN BURROS IxOSI The American owners of the Guada lupe de los Reyes mines, situated in the Slate of Sinaloa, are still mourning the loss of $100,000 of gold and silver bullion which was lost several months ago in a remarkable manner. The train of donkeys, loaded with bullion, was on its way to Mazatlan, at which point the precious cargoes were to be shipped to San Francisco by water. The animals were going along a nar v trail bordering high above the Piaxtia River, when the roadway, softened by the rains, suddenly caved into the "river, the animals and bullion and a number of Mexican drivers dis appearing in the current. As soon as the news of the heavy loss reached the owners of the mines, a large force of men was sent out to search for the treasure, a search that has been in progress for some time, but not a single bar of the bullion has been recovered. It is supposed that the animals with their freight swept down the river into the Pacific Ocean. The hunt for the bullion is still on, and a group of employes of the mines are pa trolling the river day and night for a distance of more than a hundred miles, to keep outsiders from searching and getting away with the treasure.

The line hugs close to the Waialua side of the gulch and there is an everchanging vista. The canyon is picturesque, especially where the sugar cane is encountered. Then farther up, where apparently lit tle water ever drenehea the hillsides, the scenery is more cf bold, rocky slopes covered with dried vegetation, principally lantana. The road follows the curve of the hillsides. In some places great headlands have been blown away with powder and the rails pass almost beneath beetling crags of igne ous rock, which shows the formation of the mountain in the various stages of volcanic eruptions ages ago. Now and then culverts are crossed, all of which are nicely walled up with hewn stones. Then the road passes over high fills and then through deep cuts. Some of the cuts have been hewn through almost solid rock, others through a clayish formation which is more readily pierced. Three long bridges have been necessary thus far, and only three bridges have been con structed. The construction gangs are now engaged on the fourth. A. A.

In an hour's time a walk was laid across the eleven frames and by 1 o'clock all the timbers were in place ready for spiking down. Today ties will be laid on and the steel rails upon them.
