He was contradicting the report in
the morning paper, which stated that
the Board had decided to stop Rus
sian immigration. ' - r
As stated in the report on another
page, the Board directed its secretary
to address a circular letter to. tne
managers of plantations, to ascertain
directly from them just what they
think about Russians as laborers.; The
recall of Dr. Clark from his investiga
tions In Manchuria, which arc related
to a contract, with the International
Immigration and Colonization Associa
tion, does not necessarily involve, ac
cording to what Mr. Waldron says, the
abandonment of Russian immigration.
'The , Board is merely feeling Its
war toward a change of plans with
regard to bringing In more Russians,"
Mr. Waldron said., "Plantation man
agers are the best 'authorities on the
fitness and 'desirability of Russians
for work on the plantations, and we
want to have their 'opinions on the
matter direct. '. The wholesale con
demnation of theRussians ' from the

: Plans for Oahu

FOR NAVAL RENDEZVOUS
Gen; Macomb May Postpone
',' Furlough as Result of
r .New; Order
That Pearl Harbor is the key to the
mid-Pacific,' and that any plan for
making Oahu "impregnable" should
start with adequate fortifications for
the great naval base, is .the opinion
of naval authorities here. The. Wash
ington dispatch -'stating that a board
t)f army officers had been ordered to
convene here July 31, to consider a.
plan of defense for Hawaii, publish
ed in the Star-Bulletin yesterday after
noon, has made Pearl Harbor defenses
a very lively issue, and the action of
the coming board in this particular is
being . widely discussed in service
circles. In all probability the findings
will be confidential, and will be filed
away until sprung upon Congress with
the request for the necessary appro
priation to carry out the scheme for
an impregnable Oahu, but in the mean
time speculation is rife, and interest
in the. probable action of the board
keen.. . .
"1 believe that there is urgent need
of strong fortifications at Pearl Har
bor," said Admiral Cowles this morning.-

received no intimation that the navy
was to work in conjunction with the
army In planning the defenses of
Oahu and the Hawaiian Islands. That

Get in and help it grow!
The movement for a substantial
gift to Duke Kahanamoku, Jr., who Is
winning fame for himself and Hawaii
by his marvellous swimming at the!
Olympic games, is getting real results
right from the outset. V
The fund started when two admir
ers of Duke up in -Fana, Maui, sent
$15 to the Star-Bulletin and suggested
that Duke be given house and lot
on his return " fror j Stockholm. A
further suggestion " has been made
that a committee be named to handle j
the fund,' secure the house and lot,
place the property in trust for Duke
and make the occasion of his home
coming a 'big, "hookupu or celebra
tion. ;'v .''. , '
Down at the fishmarket. yesterday
afternoon and today the contributions
to the fund began to pour in, James
H. Boyd, market inspector, circulat
ing among the stalls with the follow
ing petition: ' ;;
"We, 'the undersigned,' hereby sub
scribe the amounts set opposite our
names toward a gift for Duke Kaha
namoku 2nd, ' expressing our aloha
and appreciation for -his success atj
the Olympic games at Stockholm,
Sweden." ' ; ;. '
How the money did flow in! Dol
lars, fifty-cent pieces and quarters,
they all counted steadily up, and this
morning Mr. Boyd came to the Star
Bulletin office with $33.75 that had
been given to help encourage Kaha
namoku and clean sportsmanship in
Dr. Hutchinson of the Kaimuki
Land Company yesterday

company will donate $50 on the pur
chase of a. lot and another generous
offer was put .down.
