; , This last denial was , made when
Secretary Knox - was told of the sUtt
inent published in .. the Coast and

Vcance had been given to his visit to
the Far East by the announcement

Secretary Knox. said that, the rumor
was .without foundation, and that he
had no mission besides the mission of

S;es Hawaii from; Quarterdeck.
The secretary 'received his first
impressions of Hawaii at 5 o'clock
this morning, from the quarterdeck of
the Maryland. At 6:00 the cruiser
came alongside the navy dock, where
acting Japanese Consul Y. Mori, in
full diplomatic uniform, and accom
panied by a committee composed of
the - Influential Japanese residents of
Honolulu, was waiting to receive him.
Territorial- Secretary E. A. Mott
Smith, accompanied by Norman Cour
tenay, 'private secretary to Governor
Frear,. arrived a few minutes after
the ship docked to welcome the Sec
retary officially to Hawaii, and to
confer with Him regarding the enter-
tainment arrangements during the
brief stay. s
Solemnity of Mission Recognized.
The nature of Secretary's Knox sj
mission is such that bis visit here
will, natrually not be marked by much
formality, and he will spend his time
in Hawaii quietly. The solemn duty
of conveying to Japan the grief ol
America over the death of the Em -
peror makes his visit one when pomp
and ceremony are not in order, ana
he is naturally declining dinners, re
ceptions and other public engage
ments. Informal Reception on Deck.
