Hawaiian waters, that vessel will be

equipment. It is stated that the de

Preparing for its annual Christmas
activities, the Salvation Army is
sending out broadcast the following
Dear Friend: Once again the Christ
mas season is upon us, with Its fes
tivities, its gifts, its comforts for
those blessed with this world's goods;
with its deprivations, its realizations
of need and its heart-lonliness for
those who are not.
We are planning a more thorough
distribution of good cheer in this city
than has been possible in the past.
For Christmas itself we must prepare
our usual gifts of substantial aid, sup
plying well-filled baskets to as many
as will be found to be in need, that
the family may partake together of
the good things in their own homes.
Then there will be the homeless to
provide for, in a sit-down dinner at
our Working Men's Hotel. We- must
make them forget that they are lone
ly and far from home and friends.
In addition to these there are the
little ones in the Manoa Home, for
whom all the delights which mothers
plan for their babes must be provid
ed. This has reference to . both the
Xmas turkey, the well-filled stock
ings and the inevitable Xmas tree.
' But we must not forget the child
ren I of Poverty's homes; " they, too,
must have' their Christmas tree at
our hall, and there must be the usual
quota of toys, candies, huts, etc They
have so little to brighten the sombre
mornings of their lives.
All this Is to be united In one great
scheme, for the first time in the
Army's history in Honolulu, as all
branches, are now under one head.
, We cannot attempt, or work to a
happy conclusion any of these de
sires without your generous aid. Will
you give It freely ."In His Name,"
even to a larger extent than in the
past. 'and you have ever been kindly;
Enclosed you wm find a sjp,1 aesig-.. too much for the small tyacnt, which

Angeles. - There tvas a reunion there
on the volcano road, while Mr. and
Mrs. Copp and Dr. and Mrs. Robin
son were shaking hands and thanking
their stars that ; everybody was safe.
The Robinsons and Copps -are old
friend l from : Los Angeles, and al
though Dr. Robinson had heard that
the Co'ppsi were in the islands, he
hadn't expected to meet them,, last of
all down Under an overturned auto
on the volcano road.
As for the escape, it was miraculous.
The back car had turned .turtle com
pletely, but as luck would have it, the
front end of the car was up on the
top of the three-foot bank, and the
radiator cap caught on a piece of
rock and held the machine from drop
ping lower. The, passengers got a ter
rific shaking-up but not so much as a
scratch, and the driver suffered only
the cut in the knee, which was given
the benefit of some rude surgery and
didn't bother him. . But the passen
gers In both cars were given a fright,
didn't look as if anybody could come
alive from under the car that had been
flung from the load like a stone from
No blame was attached to either of
the drivers, though the passengers in
the cars declare that the autos on the
road should be equipped with louder
horns or sirens, as it is almost im
possible to hear cars coming and
tbere are many curves on the narrow
The other two passengers in the car
were Mr. and Mrs. B. B. Wilcox of
Santa Barbara, Cal. Mr. Wilcox was
the last of the quaret taken from be
neath the. machine. He was pinned
down by the back of a seat across his
shoulder and his shoulder was slight
ly strained, but nothing serious. Ever,
pinned down, by the car and hardly
knowing whether he was dead of alive
he pluckily insisted that the rescuers
help out his wife and Mrs. Copp first.
Both of them had been taken out, how
ever, before the car was lifted enough
tc show Mr. Wilcox -underneath.
As for the auto Itself there was only
the top and windshield broken an:l i
damaged wheel. A new whtl v,'a9
brought from Hilo. the car pir on its
"feet," and it ran down to Hilo wiih
The four people were taken bark-to

rest proceeded on their w.iy. .
Silvertown Comes Into Print
The British cable steamer Si!er
town, which brought the submarine
cable laid by the Commercial Paeifio
Cable Company from San Francisco
to Honolulu some twelve years arc.
and remained in these waters for
some weeks pending the landing and
adjustment of the line of commvra
tion with the mainland, is referred to
by Australian newspapers as having
arrived at Sydney. The Silvertown
was to have proceeded to a point i t 7
Bondi. where the operation of laying
the shore ends ot the new cable be
tween Bondi and Auckland will b"
commenced. This work will probanh
last under favorable conditions until
about 11 a. m. Immediately after
laying the shore ends the Silvertown
will steam away for New. Zealand,
paying oat Cable as she goes. It was
expected that she will arrive at th
New Zealand end within a short time.
Five pirates were captured near
Brisbane, Queensland through being
driven ashore In a storm Just when
they had made plans for a successful
escape with which they intended go
ing to the Solomon islands, according
to late Australian advices.' The men
have been caught by the police.
The 'pirates began stealing stores
and firearms m Brisbane from dif
ferent . merchants and after securing
what they needed for a long cruise
stole an automobile. In the latter
they conveyed their loot to the aux
iliary yawl, Dora, owned by Mr. John
McTaggart, and moored in Brisbane
harbor. Hastily cutting loose from
the " moorings the five freebooters
sailed out to the open sea, but their
piratical cruise did not last much
over a day.
Had Read "Treasure Island."
The barometer had dropped shortly
after the signal station at Cape More
ton had reported the craft was pass
ing out to sea and thereafter a gale
began to blow directly on shore. It
is reported that the pirates, who ' had
secured a good store of rum from one
merchant, were singing as they pass
ed the cape, "their ditty being the fam
ous pirate song and chorus:.
Fifteen men on & dead man's chest;
Yo ho, and a bottle of rum.
Drink and the devil have done for
the rest , '
Yo ho, and a bottle of rum."
The- quintette could., not have sung
for very long, however, as they were
soon at their, wits end trying to keep
(he craft from being driven ' ashore.
One of the number had recently lived
in the Solomon Islands and had fired
the imagination ' of the rest with
stories of restful realms under "palms.
They all knew that no regular steam
er .would leave Australia for the - Isl
ands inside of a month and -they had
planned well. , The : rough weather
which had set In, however, proved
tttre the boat and men While one
party went by rail along ' the shore
line the rest vthartered the ; steamer
Albatross and set out In pursuit. ;The
chase did not last long, . however, aa
the five men were driven ashore near
& lighthouse. -'.v;- ; .
They told, conflicting stories to the
lighthouse keeper.who detained them
tntil the police arrived and took them
back to Brisbane to jail. The suspi
cions of ' the lighthouse keeper! had
been aroused by Beelng the name of
the stranded,; yacht-painted out. and
although he ' knew nothing of the pi
racy the delay he caused them gave
the shore patrol , its chance tp fjnd
