    Hawaii began a long involvement with Ireland and Portugal. Since the American Canal was still under construction a lot of Hawaiian goods had to be shipped by rail across the Central American Republic from the Pacific to the Caribbean coast. There ships carried the goods to Portugal. Brazil, Ireland Iceland or Canada. In fact a small Hawaiian_American Shipping company operated out of the Central American Republic. It started out with 3 ships that went through the Straits of Magellan all the ways up. The company eventually had 3 more ships built in Brazil. In fact contracts were made to build at least nine additional ships in that country. A passenger ship was built and it was used to transport Hawaiian Army Engineers to Ireland and Portugal

    The Hawaiians, Brazilians and Portuguese Representatives met and hammered out a plan of action to ensure the maximum impact on the country. The Hawaiians and the Brazilians wanted an impact that could be felt by all of the people as well as the reconstruction of Lisbon.

    Prime Minister Kamehameha's visit to Brazil resulted in agreement between the two countries on their approach to the rebuilding of Portugal. In addition the two countries signed a trade and a Mutual Security agreement, Hawaii sought Brazil's opinion regarding relations with other Latin American Nations. Hawaii was seeking a long term oil agreement with Neuva Granada as part of a overall trade agreement. There was also an agreement concerning the American Canal and the Panama Canal.
    His Next stop was Ireland where he would seek to make headway on the rebuilding of the country.

    Europe was seeing a lot of reconstruction as an effort began to put the Fall behind the as if a page was turned. It would take decades but the effort had begun. France was slowly taking steps. As mentioned before efforts were being made in Portugal and Ireland to help. Talks had begun with Spain.

    Word came that Hawaii's Prime Minister would be visiting Ireland, Spain and Portugal for talks with the government of the three countries. With regard to Ireland and Portugal the Hawaiian Prime Minister would visit several sites where Hawaiians were involved in major reconstruction projects.

    The Government of the Kingdom of Ireland was quite impressed that Hawaii's Prime Minister arrived for a visit. Dublin was humming with construction and a lot of progress had been made There was a lot of construction going on and the Irish Government was working quite hard to ensure that progress continued to be made. Hawaii's Prime Minister was greeted in Spain by the former Viceroy of the Philippines. Relations between Spain and Hawaii had improved and despite having supported independence for the Philippines the Hawaiian had assisted Spain with ensuring that its forces were able to defend the colony from invaders as a result og the Fall.
    The Welcome that William Kamehameha received in Portugal was warm and friendly. The people were well aware of Hawaii's generosity and its continuing assistance.

    Progress continued to be made in the rebuilding of Portugal. It was also resulting in a stimulation to the Spanish economy and already the Hawaiians were meeting with Spanish and French Officials about rail road reconstruction and the building of roads.

    The French Government was slowly rebuilding the country. Some railroad lines had been restored and some villages in Southern France had been rebuilt and repopulated. Paris now had a population of about 2,000 civilians and also had a garrison of French Army Engineers and Legionnaires. There were a few outpost in the north but they were few and far between. Legionnaire patrols were becoming more regular as the weather continued to improve.

    The Man who had overseen the construction of the American Canal had now traveled to Europe to check on some projects that Hawaii was involved with . He had also been asked by the French to give his opinion regarding restoration work. It was to be a 4 month job and he had a staff of 12 Royal Hawaiian Army Engineer personnel with him.

    Hawaiian Military engineers were kept busy for the next 12 years on a variety of projects. For many of them this period was one in which they were happy. They were reshaping the face of Europe. The Man who had overseen the building of the Canal and had accomplished much found more satisfaction in being able to reshape Ireland and Portugal. Still he was willing to help out his fellow engineers in France when they had a problem Still by 1906 he was ready to retire and he returned to Hawaii where he taught a class in Engineering at the Academy and another at the Royal College.

    While Western Europe was seeing a lot in the way of rebuilding and some immigration back to Europe it was taking a lot of effort The Netherlands had seen some restoration which had allowed some immigration from the colonies in Soth America and the Far east back to the Motherland. In the Ukraine here had been clashes between the Russians and the Poles. The Russian Imperial Government was attempting to restore its authority. The Austrian Empire was supporting the Poles.

    Europe was seeing a lot of reconstruction . The Dutch were rebuilding the dikes and getting help from the Hawaiians. France was attempting to make some major effort at restoration of the country. In Portugal the railroad had been rebuild and was now connected to the line in Southern Spain. Spain had been the first country to see a moderation of temperature and as a result had made a great deal of progress. The Germans were rebuilding Germany but there had been a lot of damage. Both Germany as a nation and the Austrian Empire were very suspicious of the Russians. Thus the Austrians continued to support the Poles and the people of the Baltic states.
