    There was a meeting in Madrid, Spain of Representatives from the French, Spanish, Hawaiian, Brazilian and Portuguese Government involved in the reconstruction projects on the Continent .The idea was to share knowledge and experience in dealing with projects and at the same time coordinate the work so as to insure better results. Among the conclusions were that there was a need for a lot more production of both Concrete and steel. Quarries were working to produce cut Granite. Several rail lines had been restored to allow the movement of construction materials

    A second meeting was to take place in Europe to receive reports on the progress in restoration of the countries and proposals for more projects. The greatest effort continued to be made in Portugal by the Brazilian, Hawaiian and Portuguese governments but the greates co-operation among the countries had been on the restoration of rail service from Portugal to Tours, France. Construction work was being made on restoring the lines through France to Switzerland and into Vienna while anothe line moved along southern France to Italy.

    Prime Minister William Kamehameha arrived in Ireland and would be attending the Europe Rebuilding Conference in (NEW) London just the following week. Representatives from Ireland, Hawaii, Brazil, France, Portugal, Spain, Austrian Empire, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands would attend. There was hope for additional action to be taking on the restoration of Europe. Hawaii and Britain had already held talks with Denmark, Norway and Sweden on co-operation.

    The Austrian Imperial Army had begun to increase the border defenses of the Empire and then the Minister of War ordered the mobilization of troops after receiving an order from the Chancellor who in turn received direction from the Emperor . Two weeks latter the Corp commander received an order to cross the border and thus entering the Ukraine. More troops had been ordered to mobilize.

    The Austrian Government was made aware of a problem in Africa that required the production of a certain medication. A Austrian Company produced a small amount of it for Belgium and its Congo colony. The Austrian Drug company could produce more but it would take time.

    The rumble of what was thought to be thunder was heard in the Ukraine but as one got closer to the sound it was in fact the thunder of artillery pieces as Austrian Guns now went into action against the Russians. Polish Cavalry engaged the Russians and the Austrian Imperial Army was now involved in a war against Russia. The Austrians considered that Russia had crossed a red line and the use of military force rather than diplomacy required a response in kind. The Hawaiian Ambassador to Finland met with the Russian Ambassador to try to end the fighting.

    The Inspector along with two Hawaiian Constables and 2 Royal Hawaiian Intelligence officers traveled with a team of Irish Official to where the Prisoners were being held. They reviewed the documents that had been recovered and spoke to the individuals being held. They were to be tried in an Irish Court on violation of several laws. Copies of the documents had been made and were certified as being true copies. These were transported to the Royal Hawaiian Naval Base and placed aboard an airship bound for Hawaii escorted by a Royal Hawaiian Intelligence Agent and a Member of the Royal Hawaiian Navy Police

    The Inspector interviewed the criminals with an Irish Inspector. He asked the Irish Police if they would want to send a representative with him to Austria Garde Sergeant Shannon O'Rourke was to accompany the Hawaiian to Austria. She spoke German, French and some Russian. She had joined the Garde when she was 18 and had been on the force for 10 years. She had earned a degree in Criminal Investigation and had broken several cases in the past. The Inspector left one of his officers in Ireland and was joined by a Special Agent of the Royal Hawaiian Intelligence Service and by Sergeant Tommy Tomara of the CID Royal Hawaiian Army

    The Hawaiian-Irish Criminal Investigation team were now made aware that the case had move into many different corners of the world. The question was Russia involved and if it was what was the extent. There was a disagreement between the Austrians and the Poles over Russian Involvement. Surprisingly the Poles believed that the Russians were only doing it for money and to screw things up. The Russians were believed by the Austrians trying to cause trouble for any of Britain's allies
