thousand. tons coal were being placed
aboard, and at the. same time repairs

In the troopship.
A storm that created great havoc
with shipping at several northern
ports, missed jthe transport much to
the Joy of the staff of ocers.
Philippine scout officers are travel

across the PacUc is said to have been
a very pleasant one, smooth seas ana ,
favorable; winds . being the : rule most
of the long voyage. .
The Sherman was berther at Alakea
wharf shortly after two o'clock yester
day afternoon and is scheduled to de

hospital.
The transport has a large first and
second cabin passenger list, but com
paratively few in the steerage. Among
the latter are 104 enlisted men of the

James Fisher, the young man ar
rested last June by the U. S. marshal
and suspected of complicity with Nor
man B. Smith in smuggling opium in
to the Territory, entered a plea of
; guilty this morning to the opium
smuggling charge. He will be sen
tenced by U. S. District Judge dem
ons tomorrow morning.
Although a tin of the contraband
stuff was found in his suitcase when
it was seized by the customs officials
: at the Wells Fargo express office in
' June. Fisher steadfastly asserted his
: innocence, also declining to make any
defense further than to say he did
j not know how the drug happened to
be in his possession. The hearing,
i finally set for the October term in
! Federal court, was called last week,
j and a jury obtained after two days'
I work in the selection of its members.
The actual hearing of evidence was to
begin this morning, but was checked
by Fisher's request for permission to
change his plea.

Chapter of Accidents.
The police were called yesterday to
quell a large-sized disturbance in a
Palama tenement, in which several
soldiers, including William .Miller, and
a Hawaiian. John K. Kalimapehu, were
inwlved. The Hawaiian was sent to
the hospital with a serious cut over
one eye, caused, it is alleged, by MiU
er, who, as a member of the party, at
tempted to take a hand in a family
altercation between the Hawaiian and
his wife. A ten-gallon keg of beer ev
idently proved the incentive for the
affray. This was in process of being
consumed by the party when trouble
loomed upon the horizon. Miller was
placed under, arrest, pending the re
sult of the injuries to the Hawaiian.
Would Lick His Weight in Wildcats.
"I .am ready to lick my weight in
'i
wildcats," proclaimed Moau, a Hawai
ian,' frbm; the balcony of a Kukul
street tenement house yesterday aft
ernoon. - Uttering this challenge in
tones. that might well be mistaken for
thejsiren call of a freight steamer,
Moau r then proceeded (o carry his
threat-into execution. The Hawaiian
was. raising the roof when the police
appeared on the scene. The man suc
ceeded in smashing a section of the
neighboring fence, and when corraled
ini his : own premises he was caught
in the act of subsisting off the grass
on the lawn. Too. much red eye is
assigned as the. cause of the disturb
ance. The Hawaiian was placed in
durance .vile.
Hit by An Auto.
t Henry Steward was sent to the hos
pital to receive medical attention for
injuries sustained in being run down
by, auto ,No. l002i driven by a Japan
ese. Steward is alleged . by the po
lice, who, have investigated the case,
to have deliberately stepped - in front
of. a, slowly-approaching . motor car
which . was . proceeding s along Hotel
street at about six miles an hour. De
spite the continued honkrhonk from
the horn, Steward is declared to have
paid no attention to the warning, with
the result that he waa thrown down
and received -a. number .of bruises,
none of which. Are considered serious.

u the regllious rather than the politi

' Altough disinclined to make the

observer of men and events and has
kept .fully informed on the trend 'of

He is a man of .ntense humanity, and
his offer of mediation is to be regard

Under Czar Ferdinand of Bulgaria,
who will lead the troops in person,
the allied Balkan armies are being
rushed toward the Turkish frontier
for an attack on the hated Turkish
foe. Whether intervention or media

WANTS
UNTIL AFTER
The reiort of Secretary of the In
teiior Walter L Fisher on the Jl'eni
tcry of Hawaii probably will not be
made to President Taft before the
UMddle of November, or at least six
weeks from the day he left Honolulu.
His statement in his final talk here
t'rat he could not make public his con
clusions concerning the reapiwintment
of Governor Frear until such recom
mendation has been presented to the
I-'esideht will mean therefore, that no
news on this subject is likely to em
inate from the national capital until
after the presidential election.
Maurice P. Mahon, the otflrial
stenographer who accompanied, the
Secretary and his party on the tour
oer the islands, and who took the
nctes of the last few hearings in Ho
nolulu, estimates that he has about
700 pages of writing to transcribe,
and that this work will not be finished
fcr about a month. About 500 pages of
this will be occupied by tbe testimony
taken at the hearings on te other is
lands, with 200 pages devoted to the
Ir.st session in this city.'
In a talk with the stenographer just
before his departure Secretary Fisher
said he expected to be back at Wash
ington in about three weeks' time.
According to McMahon's present seti
ment the traris-scription cannot be fln
isled until a week after that tim.e,
and it will take about two weeks for
the copy to reach the Secretary after
it Is mailed.
Much of Mr. Fisher's report may be
prepared of course without these
rotes, but.lt is considered likely that
he will desire to review the entire
mass of written evidence before com
pleting his own report, possibly sub
mitting the transcript, to the president
as a part of his statement on Hawai
ian affiairs ,
This is moving day at the naval
station ,and all morning men with
boxes, maps and books filed up and
down the stairs. The entire office of
the public, works, officer, Vivil t En
gineer E. R. , Gayler, . Is being taken
f rcm Honolulu to Pearl Harbor, and It
is proving no easy job to transport the
maps records and furniture from one
place to the other, and to do it in such
a i, way that the wheels of the depart
ment will be kept turning all the time.
Civil Engineer Gayler, who has
charge of all construction work at
Pearl Harbor, has arranged to occupy
the upper floor of the wood working
shop at the new navy station, until
the administration building is com
pleted, and. the permanent offices of
his department ready for occupancy.
Tomorrow, morning a coal barge, load
ed with all the fixtures and appliances
of the office here, will be taken In tow
by the, navy Tug Navajo, and landed
at Pearl Harbor, where the work of
getting, settle will. commence.
Civil Engineer Gayle himself ex
pects to live "on the job" for a while,
and has made arangements for tem
porary, quarters at the Pearl Harbor.
Chief Clerk Roenitz, of the naval
station, leaves for the Coast on the
transport Sherman this afternoon. He
Is on a short leave. His place will be
taken, by- Assistant Clerk Keoho.
Lieutenant Blair, U. S. M. C, leaves
on the Sherman. He has been tyinsfer
ea to Philadelphia, where he wiJl at
tend one of the service schools.
Mrs. E. R. Gayler, and two children
are passengers to the Coast on the
transport. Mrs. -Gayler experts to
nake. a. visit Of 'several months dura
tion at her hopx ,4a St. Louis.
"Another campaign yarn' is the des
ignation that leading Republicans to
day gave to an article in the Sunday
paper stating that Delegate Kuhio
has been telling political meetings
that J. M. Dowsett's candidacy for
delegate some time ago was announc
ed because he thought Cupid did not
intend to run. The article and its
criticism was resented by a number
i of prominent Republicans.
Investigation among a number of
people, both Hawaiian and haoje, who
attended the meetings at which Kuhio
spoke does not show that he told the
story with which he is charged. It is
declared that so far as is known the
only person who is credited with the
story is Sol. Mahelona, of the fifth dis
trict. The story created something of a
political sensation but those who were
at the meetings say the Prince never
even referred to such a yarn, which,
of course, is not the true statement
of Mr. Dowsett's candidacy at all.

mulated sugar stored at Kauai plants-

FOR MANEUVERS
Returning from Philippine duty on
the General Staff, Colonel Wm. D.
Beach, cavalry, was a visitor at army
headquarters this morning. Colonel
Beach is the ranking officer on the
transport Sherman, and today he
spent some , time with the department
commander, making a short flight-seeing
tour of the city.
Particular Interest attaches to the
visit' of Colonel Beach at this time
owing, to the fact that he has - been
assigned to the Fourth Cavalry, and
will come here In command of that
regiment next February, when- the
Fifth returns . to the States. While
he. has passed through Honolulu ; a
number of times, Colonel Beach has
never been stationed here, and he nat
urally wanted to see, as much as pos
sible of his fu Aire home before com
ing here with troops.
. There has been a provisional ; as
signment of umpires for the coming
department; maneuvers,' subject, now
eyer, to change or modification on the
arrival, of any'lnstructlons from dtrl
slon headquarters. - The present plan
of. Generar Ma.comb, who will himself
act as chief umpire, is to have Major
McClure, who has just returned from
the Coast where he was one of - the
umpires at the California maneuvers,
senior umpire with the. Blue, or
Southern army, and Major Pennr who
comes on the next transport to Join
the First Infantry, in a similar capa
city with the Reds or Northerners.
There will be no lack. of . umpires and
observers, the latest addition to the
already, long list to come here being
Major George Blakely, C. A. C,:who
was recently here as a member, of the
defense board. He has ben ordered
back again to view the maneuvers,
and his familiarity. with the territory
makes him an especially valuable offi
cer.
