THE FLOATIXG CRANE AT MARE ISLAND, SLIGHTLY S3IALLER THAN THE OXE AT PEARL HARBOR.

One of the most Interesting pieces
of machinery construction or assemb
ling ever seen here is now in pro
gress at the navy dock, where the
giant floating crane, the largest in
the world, which is destined for ser
vice at Pearl Harbor, is being erect
ed on the pontoon which recently ar
rived here in tow of the tug Hercules.
The job is a big one, and it "will be
several months yet- before the com
pleted crane will be ready fpr busi
ness. The crane, which was turned out
by the Wellman-Seaver-Morg?.n Co.,
of Cleveland, Ohio, and which is be
ing assembled ,under "the direction of
that company's, engineering represen
tative, Mr. Case, will be the largest
in the world when completed. It
will have a lifting capacity of 150
tons, and the contract price totals
The pontoon, on which the super
structure is being erected, was built
by the Union Iron Works, and Is in
itself a giant affair, incidentally prov
ing one of the most unwieldy tows
that was ever brought from the
Coast to Honolulu. It is to be fitted
with Diesel oil engines, which will
drive the dynamo which supplies the
current for the hoisting machinery.
These engines are of the latest type,
and have been used with great suc
cess on similar machinery. In the
event of anything going wrong with
the generating machinery, however,
the crane will be fitted with the very
latest model Edison storage battery,
capable of holding-enough "Juice" to
run the crane for seven hours. These
storage cells are a great improve
ment on the old model, costing just
twice as much but being more than
twice as efficient
The picture above shows a floating
crane built by the same company for
the Bremerton navy yard, which is
just a trifle smaller than the one de
signed for Pearl Harbor. It is work
ing on one of the armored cruisers of
the Maryland type, which gives a
good idea of its Immensity.

SALAMANCA HUNTS HIS
PAY AS BAND MEMBER
Lazaro Salamanca veteran member
of the Hawaiian band, arrived in Ho
nolulu by the SiberSa yesterday after
a visit to his old h'ome in the Philip
pines to enter upon' a course of trou
Salamanca appeared bright and
early at the city hall today to collect ;
what he thought was money owing
to him from the municipality. He said
he had four months' salary due, and
Auditor Bicknell was enlisted in the
search for the missing pay. The au
ditortmldn't find out what. Salaman
ca's status was, so he appealed to4be
municipal encyclopedia of informa
tion, commonly known as Bert Riven
burgh, secretary to the mayor. Riv
enburgh overhauled his mental card
index and brought up a statement that
Salamanca was given four months'
leave of absence on half-pay, or two
months' pay in all. Lazaro seemed to
have figured that he had the full time
coming and when last seen was still
on the hunt for his musical rights.
Salamanca has been a member of the
band for more than twenty years and
recently decided to take a leave of
absence to visit his former home in
MAPPING THE MOON
Experiments have been made by
Professor Wood of photographing the
moon in light of a certain pure color,
using a small part of the spectrum,
says one writing from London. Con
clusions were arrived at that the
dark patch near the crater, known as
Aristarchus, is covered with some
comf?ound of sulphur. Professor
Wood maintains that the whole sur
lace could be mapped out showing the
mineral deposits, and. it is stated, a
map may shortly be made as the re
sult, of these researches.

taurant proprietor, doing business on
the windward side of Oahu; can read'

following his timely contribution to
city and county coffers this morning.
Feeding the residents of the flour
ishing cannery settlement at eighteen
dollars a month and furnishing a plen
tiful supply of a brew claimed to be
suited to the climate, may have proved
a prosperous financial undertaking
upon the part of the proprietor, but
he failed to take into consideration
that the Territorial officials ' should
have been consulted upon the matter.
Charged with selling liquor without
first having secured a license to dis

at district court this morning, but for
some reason or other he failed to
show up when the names of offenders
against municipal laws were called.
When the third and last note sound

Ah Tai materialized. Judge Larnacb
ordered the bail forfeited.
Fennell claims that the Chinese was
doing a land office business in the
vending of spirituous liquors at his
place of refreshment near the Libby,
McNeil & Libby pineapple cannery.
When placed in custody the Chinese
declared that he had agreed to serve
meals with the nut-brown attachment,
and in order to fulfil his contracts
with his customers was obliged to pro
vide beer in order to make good.
Sue Tuk Yuen, a Chinese with four
bullet wounds alleged to be inflicted
by Ah Hoon, a former partner in bus

to recovery. Monday it was believed
