The tanker which was swept by fire

Kilauea Arrived at Coast.
The Inter-Island steamer Kilauea
with, a small amount of general cargo,
arrived at San Francisco early this
morning, the distance being covered
in eight and one-half days.
The Kilauea left her home port to
receive general repairs at the coast
shipyards. Some months ago the ves
sel scraped the rocks near Kailua
and as a result several plates were
dented. To replace these the vessel
was obliged to return to the Union
Iron Works. The Kilauea was given
a liberal supply of oil as fuel before
starting on the trans-Pacific voyage.
The time made by the little liner oc
casioned considerable surprise among
local shipping men today.
The Kilauea is to remain at San
Francisco for about ten days before
starting home. The vessel may be
given a general cargo to serve as bal
last. Liners Meet With Fine Weather.

VICTORIA, Sept. 26. The British-India
Navigation company is to es
tablish a trans-Pacific steamship line
from Calcutta by way of Hongkong
and the usual ports of call in the far
east to Victoria and Puget sound, ac
cording to a report made to Washing
ton by the United States consul gen
eral at Hongkong. The British-India,
which recently absorbed the Apcar
line in the Calcutta-Japan trade, is
one of the strongest of the British
shipping companies. The new serv
ice is to be maintained with four lin
ers of 10,000 tons register.- Another
anticipated increase in the trans-Pa.
cific lines is the coming of the Glen
or Shire line across the Pacific
When Mr. Nash, representative of the
Royal Mail Steam Packet line, which
controls both those services, was in
Victoria investigating conditions here
in view of the opening of the Panama
canal, he announced that the coming
of a -line from Europe by way of the
canal would be followed by the exten
sion of either the Shire or Glen line
across the Pacific to connect with the
Royal Mail line by way of Panama.
Glen liners have already plied to Vic
toria, several having been used by
Dodwell & Co. when that firm main
tained a trans-Pacific service.
Piracy a Menace in Chinese Waters.
Piracy continues a menace to ship
ping in the inland waters of southern
China, according to stories brought
to Honolulu with the arrival of the
Pacific Mail liner Siberia. At the
time the Pacific Mailer was lying at
anchor in Hongkong harbor, the re
port was circulated that the pirates
who made the raid on Dumbell island
made a larger haul in money than
was first stated. Besides looting the
safe at the police station, they robbed
a pawnshop and a grocery store.
Dumbell island is a large fishing cen
ter, and the arrival of the gang
aroused no suspicion because it was
thought they were fishermen. As
soon as they landed from their junk
they went to the police station and
shot down the Indian constable guard
ing the door. The other constables
ran to his assistance and they were
murdered at once.
While this attack was being made
others of the gang held up the pawn
shop and grocery store and it is esti
mated they got about $6000.
The European sergeant was arous
ed by the shooting, but when he ap
peared the gang fired a volley at him,
failing, however, to wound him.
Escape was made in a launch which
the gang seized. There were two
launches at the landing and one of
them was disabled to prevent pursuit
before the gang shoved off in the
The pirates ran to Colowan in the
launch and there abandoned it. mak

seized. Further trace of them is lost,

HUNT BIO GAME
(Vp'ain Harry Morton, well known
'o HoTioh.lans as one of the most
popular skippers that ever trod 'he
bridge on a Pacific Mail liner, and
who was a regular visitor here with
the calling of the Mongolia at this
port, is having the time of his life as
the com .anion of the Due de Mont
pensier. which iarty the Pacific Mail
.nan joined some moirhs ago fo a
two years' cruise over the globe.
Captain Morton obtained a two
.war leave of absence in July to join
the Duke and his party in France,
where he wa.s to taKe command of
the yacht Maund for a cruise around
the world. The trip has now been
postponed for several months. The
San Francisco captain will be a mem
ber of the hunting party which will
traverse the valley of the Nile and
penetrate into Northern African fast
nesses in search of strange game.
In the party will also be the Due
vi'Orleans, brother to Montpensier
and heir, if the centuries could be
rolled back, to the throne of France.
Manuel, the dejxised young King of
Portugal, and nephew of Captain
Morton's friend, will be included in
the party. The former admirer of the
dazzling Gaby Ueslys was to. have
been a member of the around-t he
world cruise in an effort to forget his
troubles. With the party will also be
other notables of European titles,
who may or may not hit the game
they will pursue.
The hunting party will leave for
Cairo on the Due de Montpensier's
beautiful 1,200-ton yaclt, and will
proceed up the Nile Valley to the
hunting grounds, where their trip
will be continued on horseback. It
is understood that Captain Morton
has refused to get astride of a land
lubberly camel. C-ocodiles, hippo
potami and similar big game will be
Returning to Cairo, the little party
will penetrate into the Arabian desert
and the Tigris-Euphrates valley in a
round-up of more big game. Several
months will be consumed before the
huntsmen board the Maund for the
return trip across the blue Mediter
ranean. Captain Morton and the Duke be
came chummy once when Montpen
bier crossed the Pacific on the Mon
golia, The skipper left New York on
July 13, where he went across on the

visit at her old home in Little Ire
land, Cionmel, Ireland. Joining the
Duke in Paris, they have recently
completed a motor trip across the
The cruise around the world, to be
held later, will be steered first across
the Atlantic to the Caribbean sea,
then down the South American coast
and around the Horn. Whenever
fancy dictates, the yacht will drop
anchos and the party will go ashore
for a hunt or a bit of exploration.
They will then sail across the South
Seas, visiting the out-of-the-way
places made famous by Robert Louis
Stevenson. From the China coast
they will make for the Suez Canal.

his life, according to letters received
here by his friends.
