    The Canadian Government in Vancouver had authorized the reconstruction of the railroad lines to the east. This bill had been passed in 1890 and the progress was slow as lines and , bridges all had to be restored to working order. Progress was slow and no work could be carried out from late October to late March . Still the line did move further eastward. Some towns were rebuilt and slowly gained people.

    William Kamehameha and the Canadian Prime Minister visited Ottawa by airship in 1897 and they could see what might be needed to be done. Hawaii and Canada had become very close and their relationship would always remain so.

    An outpost had been set up in Chicago. The population of the city was barely 90 people. Most of the work carried out by them involved survey work and demolition of unsafe buildings. Ohio had seen much more in the way of an effort to get things moving. The National Government was attempting to get industry working again but it was a slow step forward.

    While the weather had begun to move in the direction of a return toward normal it still had a way to go. This clearly was handicapping the ability to move the population back to the northern region. New England continued to remain unpopulated with few exception.
    Teddy Roosevelt was making progress with his efforts in New York.

    The United States was slowly making progress is restoration work. Work continued in New York to clear the debris from the port and the city and the same was happening in the Norfolk region of Virginia. There was a rail line once again ting the nation together and another rail line had moved through Texas into New Mexico and into Arizona. There was a giant inland Sea in Southern California.

    The Census of 1900 put the population of the United States at 36,800,000. It was slowly increasing but The Fall had really reduced things as had the wars that had taken place. Canada had seen a return of some of the people who had been living in Australia, New Zealand and in Hawaii. The Population was approaching 700,000 in 1900 but was steadily growing.

    In Canada there were now outpost in both Toronto and Ottawa and further East one had been set up in Quebec and Montreal. Still none of the four places had more than 100 people. Ottawa had an airship base and there was expectation of a regular rail connection to both Toronto and Ottawa and hope that the rail connect further east would be completed by 1910.

    Prime Minister and Mrs Kamehameha traveled to the United States and Canada in the late Spring of 1900. He had a chance to talk with his friend Theodore Roosevelt who was running fro President. He met with the Canadian Governor General in Toronto and held talks with the Canadian Prime Minister over plans. The Hawaiian Base at Fort Louisburg was discussed with the thought of a treaty allowing the base to continue being leased for another 25 Years.

    President Roosevelt received a call from the Hawaiian Prime Minister regarding a health problem in Africa. The President thanked him for the alert and he in turn called a cabinet meeting which would take measures to prevent entry into the US of people from that region.He also contacted the largest drug company in the US to make sure that production of drugs to treat the illness was made available.. Hawaii had purchased 2,000 units and had moved them to South Africa by airship.

    President Roosevelt called the Canadian Prime Minister and spoke to him regarding the health problem in Africa and the steps that he was taking. He then called the Hawaiian Prime Minister and spoke to him on the phone for 45 minutes and suggested a get together on Catalina.

    Six of the plotters were put aboard a US Navy Ship and transported to the Hawaiian Islands by US Marshals. Two members of the US Secret service were aboard the cruiser Chicago and they were transporting documents for the Hawaiian Justice Department. They were greeted by the Royal Hawaiian Navy's Shore Patrol and taken to the Office of the Special Investigator. The custody of the prisoners was transferred to the Royal Hawaiian Constabulary and they went to the Prison where they would be held until a magistrate
    could see them and charges were filed.
