KANGAROO DISPUTED TRASK IN
COMMAND OF BIG LINER SOU
An "Australian" aEiniing to the
Command of the Oceanic liner Sono
ma., a vessel JlyinK the Stars and
Stripes, while on tne voyage from Syd
ney iju Honolulu, proved one of seve
ral interesting teatures on itlie thirteen

Captain J. 11. Tra.sk, ?. KeniaJ soul,
withal, and one not prone to roniTat,
nevertheless tailed to full iu with the
fctranse actions of the "passengers. '
A few days after leaving Pago Pago
one of three lively and husky kanga
roos broke from the bondage of their
cages, and then things began to hap
pen on board the gallant liner.
Up to (this time the invasipu of Fatn
ci Neptune, arrued with tridant. an
stern vitage had been the only .inci

Purser William H. McNulty, was at
tit usual task spreading good cheer
, Among -the little band of travelers,
when he was nearly bowled over by
the sudden impact from a swiftly mov
ing object. A second glace showed a
heavy set man in rapid movement, the
individual being no other than Chief
Steward Joe Carleton, closely followed
by-Dr. 0. W. Clark.
"Hasty inquiry failed to elicit an in
telligent response, until in the offing,
loomed up a huge sprawling figure,
which soon developed into a luHfledg
ed kangaroo. The animal la breaking
from his captors, started out to make
a personal inspection of the Ameran
boat. That the vessel met with all
leqnlrements was plainly indicated by

Within the past few dajs four large
new steamers have been ordered by
the Royal Mall Steam Packet company
and the vessels will be used for the
proposed service of the company be-;
tween Vancouver and the Vnited King
dom via the Panama Canal. Each of
the vessels will be 6."0 feet in length
and will be the rast thinK n mwlfn

It will be remembered that Mr. F..
J. M. Nash, special representative of
the Royal Mall Steam Packett com
pany was a visitor at Puget Sound
ports for the purpose of looking over
the field with a view of reporting on
prospects for Panama Canal tnisinf es
Since his return to the United King

ordered and it is claimed that they

Le stated that the company would
probably extend the Glen and Shire
line from Liverpool to the Orient
auross the Pacific to this port to con
nect with the new sevrice.
The newest yegsel of the Royal Mail
Steam Packet company's line is the
Demerara, which is now en route from
Liverpool to Brazil ort 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 61 It feet
One of the latest features of ship
building has been applied to the ves
sel .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

large steamers of 15,000 tons the com
pany is building five more.' of 11,500

for the :Nortb; Pacific service will be

H. Haekfeld & Co. came to the aid
of the Kona Tobacco Co. with financial
becking a little over fourteen months
ago. As was said at the time, the ad
vent of the powerful corporation to
the industry, hy such support, assured
every facility needed in demonstrating
that the finest tobacco in the worrr for
certain purposes can be grown here
By the terms of the transaction H.
Haekfeld & Co.. Ltd., advanced $80.-

tobacco company with
which to increase its acreaee
4 th5 Haekfeld company obtained the
soie-ngnt lor-ten years to act as the
selling and financial agent for the
Kona Tobacco Co., its commission for
the nrar year" being 2-l-2 per cent and
for -the re3t of the terra 5 percent
: At the time of the agreement the
Kona Tobacco Co. had 250 lacres of
land suitable for tobacco, but' only
about 100 acres under cultivation. It
was-proposed to plant' 150 acres the
following year, and increase the plant
ing for. the 1 913 crop to 200 acres.
Loss Based on Grades.
When the agreement was made the
services of J. L. Daniels, an acknowl
edged tobacco expert had been se
cured, and the company anticipated
that, under his direction, the propor
tion of wrapper leaf to filler tobacco
would be increased to eighty percent
Wrapper ahd twenty per cent filler,
where before- the proportion waa pre
cisely the reverse.-Wrapper 1 then was
quoted at ?1.25 to : 13.50 ; a pouad,
against about 25 cents a - pound for
filler tobacco. : It will : therefore be
understood why the Haekfeld people
are- not prepared to state precisely
what the loss from the' -fire is, not

Particulars of Insurance.
Therei was 125,000' insurance on the
1911 crop an an equal amount on the
1912 crop. In giving, latest directions
for placing the insurance, the man
agement stipulated for $8050 on the
part of the 1911 crop in the ferment-kthe
ing house. B. von Damm, of Hack-
feld's insurance department, said this
afternoon that it was impossible to
say how much of the 1911 crop was
in the fermenting house at the time
of the fire. Insurance on all of the
buildings amounted to $4500. .

The one regrettable feature of the
review was that it was arranged on
such short notice that the general pub
lic did not know of it in time to take
advantage of it. Had it been known
that infantry, artillery and cavalry
would parade in full force, the Leile
hua plain would surely have been
dotted with automobiles and car
riages, and there would have been a
large attendance of Honolulu people
interested in military matters on the
island. Local snapshot and motion
picture photographers expressed them
selves as keenly disappointed that
they were not on the ground with

the steady grind during the montns

was most evident

But if Honolulu people unavoidably
absented themselves from the review
that was not the case with post soci
ety. Every auto in the conton
rtunts, and the number is now coniid
iable, was parked by the reviewing
point, and other army transportation
was pressed into service by the femi-'
rine portion of toe big garrison. The
reviewr was the spectacle of the sea
son, and no one lost the chance of see
ing it, even though the sight of men
marching under arms Is famfflar
enough to arum wives and daughters.
It took almost half an hour for the
long column, representing the three
arms of the service, to pass the re
viewing point Four regimental stands
of the national colors passed
bv the line, and were saluted by otfl
cers and civilian spectators in the
usual form. It was an impressive sight
fioni the time the head of the column
approacne!, until the mules of toe
machine gun plation of the Fifth Cav
airy, bringing up the rear of the
eciumn, went by for the last time.
After all the troops had passed the
Etand once at a walk, the infantry
regiments were marched to one side
while the artillery and cavalry made
a big swing across the plain and then
came by at a smart trot to the ac
companying rattle of caissons and
jingle of accoutrements. Then the
guns went the way of the infantry
while the cavalry made its third
swing round the circle, and passed
the reviewing point at a gallop. Troon
after, troop thundered by. the ground
for once being almost dustless, ow
ing to recent rains, so that the move
ment of meri and horses could be
watched plainly, and without" incon
venience. Schofield residents are so
used to seeing life through a choking

- "This has been a trip ' that I will
never forget"; said Secretary Knox.
Our. stop here oh the way to Japan
was a pleasant break in the journey,
although necessarily a brief ene. Then,
after the accomplishment of the sad
mission that took. me to Japan, this
last stay in Hawaii ha: 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.
"By" the way," continued the Sedre
tary, "we had a second-hand sight of
-volcano last night when motion
pictures of it, taken by your local ex
pert, were put on at the hotel for our
benefit. And then I expect we'll bear
all the details from Secretary Fisher
for some time to come."
Secretary Walter Li. 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 citizens, the beauty of your well-
named Paradise of the Pacific, and
the hearty cooperation and ood will
I have encountered everywhere In my
inquiry. 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
action and to renew a host of friend
ships that we can never forget.
Probably the most distinguished
game of golf ever played in the Ter
ritory, in point , of participants, took
place at the links of the Country Club
this morning. The game brought to
a friendly climax the visit of Secre
tary of State Knox and Secretary of
the Interior Fisher.
Governor Frear and Secretary Knox
flayed against Secretary Fisher and
Delegate Kuhio, while Territorial
Secretary E. A. Mott-Smith acted as
umpire. The outcome, and the name
of the winners could not be learned
at a late hour this afternoon.
When news of the affair spread
through the streets today it elicited
much comment, and the pertinent
query was raised as to whether or
not it may be construed to mean that
open hostility between the Territorial
officials present has been dropped by
