PACIFld CLUB SMOKER
Miv good fellowship, good fun, and j
good talent, and you have the ingredi
ents which went to make the smoker
givenT)y the Pacific Club last Satur
day night one of the most enjoyable
entertainments of the kind ever given
in Honolulu. The whole program was
seasoned to taste with the sauce of
wit and the club members who con
ceded the "feast of reason and flow
of soul,, deserve a special medal.
The feature of the evening was" an
interesting talk by Professor Kent, of
the" University of Virginia, on the
presidential situation. Professor Kent
is a Woodrow Wilson Democrat but
his talk was of such general interest
that the partisanship element was lost
feight of in listening to the broader
viewB of one who comes here with a

The Oceanic liner Ventura, now at
Honolulu taking on additional sup
plies of fuel oil, Is destined to clip
ai least twenty-four hours off the

The Ventura Is to sail for. the Col
onies at five this evening, should all
go well with the discharge of seven
hundred tons general cargo brought
down from the Coast Under ordi
nary conditions and in the living up
to the mail contract the vessel Is due
to arrive at, Sydney on the morning
of August 19th. The Ventura Is said
to have easily , clicked off three hun-,
dred and ninety miles a day durin?
a portion of the voyage from San
Francisco and Honolulu.
That the liner can land her pas
sengers and malls at the Australian
port within 'thirteen days .from the
time of departing from Hawaii is the
prediction freely made on board the
vessel, this morning. .
It is the present intention to en
deavor . to bring a the Ventura within
the - protected harbor of Sydney on
August "18th.v ' ;
Thirty-one cabin . and eight steerage
passengers arrived from San Fran
Cisco in the Ventura, which was off
the" port "at five o'clock this morning.
The through list numbers oyer
forty passengers in the several
classes. . . .. ; . ; '. .;,
Purser "Bill" Reld states that the
old Pacific was just like a millpond on
the .way down from San Francisco.

of passengers began to get better ac

to Introduce into his department sev

centralize the business done by nis
staff and work towards a higher de

Chief McDuffie spent some time at
San Diego, where, following a visit
of the United States cruiser Mary
land, he haunted the several, pawn
shops with a view to locating a quan
tity of stolen Jewlry, missed at Ho
nolulu during the stay of the war ves
sel at this port He returns here as
a strong advocate for the passage of
a law making it a misdemeanor for
anyone to have stolen property in his
possession, and at the same time
hopes for such legislation as will re
quire a registry of all such pur
chases by dealers In seeond-hand ar

ON CHARGE OF MURDER
Chung Wong Chce and Chun Kim
Sut, the Chinese couple who were ar
rested last week and charged with
murdering their infant daughter, will
receive their preliminary examination
before Judge Morcarrat on Thursday
Charles Chillingworth, attorney for
the defense, declares that there is
rot enough evidence to warrant their
being held over to the Circuit Court,
while Attorneys Milverton and Brown
for the prosecution are confident that
both defendants wiH be held over for
trial as a result of Thursday's hear
ing in the Police Court.
The first account of Lorrin Andrews

Secret of Activity. V, -; . . '
The secret of the activity among
the Japanese and Chinese la that their
restaurant licenses expired on 'July 1, (
and the Board -of . Health is refusing,
to indorse a renewal until sanitary
precautiona have been complied with.
The city and .county .issues the, 1-,
censes only upon approval of -i the
Board of Health:. - ; , :. - x
The law went Into effect a year ago
last May having been passed by the
last Legislature, t The : inspection this
morning shows that most of the Ori
entals are doing the improvement
work only under pressure from -the
health authorities, and. that the con-,
dltions of dirt: and garbage Increase
are almost Impossible'; to overcome
under the present system. - ' - ;
Repeatedly . the 'comnttee found
that:ordera given tpy . the Board of
Health, have, been; ignored.' These or
ders have to be given 'again and
again. .;; r . ;r ?: ';;'.;..
In the dens . and alleys and cave
like kitchenr back of the; Chinese res
taurants . on'. Maunakea; Beretanla,
River ; and Hotel streetil the , worst
conditions were found. The premises
of, the Japanese . were ' much more
cleanly than thosef of the1 Chinese.
Danger: of Flrii Qi ii:SV, ::A
Mr. von Damm.-who- la a member of
the board of fire underwriters,' saw i
conditions so dangerous that even the
lay members .; of.: the i touring party
could i understand .why most' of the
Insurance" companies refuse to write
any large risks at all in this 'section.
Many kitchens have open fires .bias
ing within a few fcches. of. thin walla
dry aa tinder and waste: paper, .fire

'; Members' . of. the central improve
ment ' committee expressed ' them
selves 'after the trip as satisfied that
much Improvement; has been made by
Dr. Pratt, and .the board and that
there is much, more to be done. Some
stated that the. inspection system does
not seem to be thorough" enough, and j
eviaenwy in unentais ieei. inai iney

Dr. Pratt, explained the difficulties
the . board ; has met. with and . showed
the; party that progress Is being made
faster; and'; faster ) as the owners 1 or

Development" of the 12,000 : acres. ;of
land Yowned- by; tbe T Alameda I Sugar
company at. Meridian, Sutter county,
which was-baited by r the! .directors
when ;. the j free sugar bill passed the
house; was ordered resumed at a meet
ing of the board of directors Friday
and 3,000- acres' will be put into: beets.1
Itf the 1913 season the beets will be1
freighted to the company's factory at '
Alvarado; Alameda county, and there-
convenea mio sugar, loxct mis year
the' erection of a factory at Meridiln
will be ' started" and the new factory
wtll be purinto operation for the 1914
season,, at wnicn tune practically au
the 12,000 acres at- Meiid-an will be
In beets. ; Then "the present factory
at Alvarado" will - be"' dismantled. A
bond issue of $1,500,000 to finance the
building of the factory will be author
ized; very ' shortly.; i-' p'r
' The menace of the free sugar biirl
fathered by the democratic house of
representatives caused "the develop
ment of the company's property 'at
Meridian to bevhalted after the land
had been purchased from earnings and
an additional stock. Issue. , When . the
bill died In the senate it was decided
to await the' outcome of the presiden
tial nominations ; and the publication
of the ; party platforms before1 decid
ing whether or not to resume activity.
It Is understood that the directors now
feel that neither of the great parties
wilf father a free sugar bllU ;,; ';.;-'.
By the 1914 season the company will
be harvesting from 150,000 to-180,000
tons of beets and producing In excess
of 20,000 tons? of sugar. The present
output is '10,000 tons. Now the beets
used in making sugar at the Alvarado
factory are grown In Yolo county;
around Woodland, nearly all being
farmed by the company Itself. f This
acreage will be grown each year as
usual after the erection of the newj
factory " at Meridian and the beets
freighted to the factory either over
the Southern Pacific via JCnights land
ing and the Marysville-Colusa branch
cf the Northern Electric or over the
Sacramento and Woodland, the main
line of the Northern Electric and the
Marysville-Colusa branch. This branch
taps the company's 12,000 acres. At
present the branch has been pushed
outfrom Marysvilie as far as Butte
slough, but within 10 days It will be
to Meridian and the shipping i of
agricultural implements, etc. to the
beet fields will begin.
Officials of the company believe that
the saving in freight rates, when the
ractory nas been esiaonsnea in me ;
midst of-the great beet field on the
Sacramento, will decrease the operat
ing expenses by an appreciable amount
