6ig Steamers For Panama Service.
Within the past few days four larsje
new steamers have been ordered by
the Royal Mail Steam Packet company
and ' the vessels will be used for the
proposed service of the company te-
tween Vancouver and the United
com via the Panima Canal. Each of
the vessels will be 650 feet in length
and will be the last tbint; :n mod
ahlpjconstruction through out.
It will be remembered that Mr. K.
J. M. Nash, special representative of
the Royal Mail Steam tpaekett 'com
pany was a visitor at Piipot SotiuU
porta .for the purpose of looking over
ihm field with a view of reporting on !
prospects for Panama Canal business j
for the company. J
Kinr his return to the United Kir.c i
dom the four new vessels have been
ordered and it is claimed that they
will be placed in the service from Eng-

Le stated that the company would
probably extend the Glen and Shire
line from Liverpool to the Orient
across the Pacific to this port to con
nect with the new sevrice.
The newest vessel of the Royal Mail
Steam Packet company's line is the
Dt merara, which is now en route from
Liverpool to Brazil On her maiden voy
age. She is one of five new steamers
built for the company by Harland &
Wolf of Belfast. She is of eleven thou
sand, five hundred tons and Is 518 feet
One of the latest features of ship
building has been applied to the ves
rel ,and she will be built-in the same
class as, the other new liners being
built for the company. The engines
are arranged on the "balanced" princi
ple, which is said , to eliminate all. vib
ration. The increase of tonnage of the
Royal Mail line is "continuing , its Re
markable career In addition to, two
large steamers of 15,000 tons the com
pany is building five more of ll,50d

Section 4, of Act 163, ef the Session
Laws of 1911, gives such control to
the harbor, commission."
The section to which the Attorney
General referred reads in part as fol
lows: ' .. .' . '
"The board may from time to time
make, alter, amend and repeal
charges, fees and compensation . for
the-, storage of, and the duties and
powers of carriers, shippers and con
signees, in and' to, f any such freight,
goods, wares , and merchandise in and
upon : any , landing, dock ;,' or public
wharf within the Territory:'! : ''
The questidn is whether privately
owned docks, because of their general
use by the public, can be brought un
der the class of "public wharves." as
set forth in this clause. The Attor
ney General Is Inclined to believe that
this may be found feasible.
Might React on Public. ;
At the same time, he says, it might
be possible that the enforcement of
such a rule would react upon the pub
lie. Taking the supposition that a big
plantation sould build a wharf on a
coast where for miles no other land
ing could be obtained,, and1 the plan
tation had sufficient business of its
own to warrant the expenditure for
this pier for its own use solely, the
business that would come to it from
other people, while tolerated and
charged for, might not be enough, to
be especially desirable. In case, he
said, that the owners, for reasons of
their own, might stop all public use
of the wharf if its charges were to
be regulated by the harbor commis
sion. Whether an instance. of this charac
ter would be likely to crop up in the
Territory is unknown, but it is coii-
Kin-fSidered extremely unlikely
The subject was taken up by the
Attorney General today for a full and
careful consideration, and all phases
of the question will be passed upon
before a definite opinion will be hand
ed down upon which the harbor com
mission can be advised for 'future, pro-J
cedure. To date the law has been
taken merely at its face value in this
respect, and it has - generally ben
thought that the .commission had no
such power to regulate rates.

H. Hackfeld & Co. came to the aid
of the Kona Tobacco Co. with financial
I bsiking a little over fourteen months
ago. As was said at the time, the ad

jthc industry, by. such support, assured
I every facility needed in demonstrating
; that the finest tobacco in the vvoirr for
ctrtain purposes can be grown here
; ! to perfection.

Hackfeld & Co.. Ltd.. advanved $S0
;&1 six per cent interest, the Kona To-
bicco Co. agreeing to repay the money
iar the rate of $0,000 a year out of the
proceeds of the crops.
In return for this accommodation,
the Hackfeld company obtained the
sole risrht for ten years to act as the
selling and financial agent for the
Kona Tobacco Co., its commission for
the first year being 2 1-2 per cent and
for the rest of the term 5 per cent
At the time of the agreement the
Kona Tobacco Co. had 250 acres of
land suitable for tobacco, but only
about 100 acres under cultivation. . It
was proposed .to plant 130 acres the
following year, and increase the plant-
ciselv the reverse. Wramer then was
quoted at $1.25 to $3.50 a. pound,
against about 25 1 cents a . pound for
filler tobacco! It will therefore be
understood why the Hackfeld, people
are not prepared to .state, precisely
what the loss from the fire Is, not

"This has been a trip that I will
never forget,"'; said Secretary t Knox.
"Our stop here on (the way. to Japan
was a pleasant break In the journey,
although necessarily a brief one. Then,
after the . accomplishment of the. sad
mission that took up to Japan, this
last stay in Hawaii has been every
thing that could, be desired. It was a
disappointment to Mrs. Knox and my
self that we weren't able to visit the
volcano, and If It had been very active
at the present time, I should have
made a greater effort to arrange it
but time passed, and we must hurry
back to business. 1
"By the way," continued the Secre

pictures of it taken! by your local ex

Secretary Walter L. Fisher also ex
pressed his regrets at leaving so many
"Give my aloha to the people of
Hawaii," he said. "I shall count my
visit to the Islands as among the most
pleasant experiences of my life and
shall never forget the hospitality of
your citibens, the beauty of your well
named Paradise of the Pacific, .and
the hearty cooperation and good will
I have encountered everywhere in my
inqiury. The greatest regret Mrs.
Fisher and I have is that we did not
see your Kilauea in full, red bloom,
and hope that our affairs will so
shape themselves that we may come
back some day, to see the volcano in

game of golf ever played in the Ter

place at the links of the Country Club
