It is not known what officer will
K sent here to assume command of
the Honolulu naval station, and the
important naval work which is. going
on at Pearl Harbor, but the opinion
prevails in local naval circles that

years to wait for his stars, will assume
tlu reins of government It is possi
ble however, that' another rean, ad-

Busy Time Here.
Admiral Cowies has been closely
identified ' with Pearl Harbor, many
preliminary details of the great nava1
project having been carried out by him.
He has seen the new station grow
from a mere channel dredging project
to one of the most extensive and im
portant naval undertakings ever at
tempted by the United Stales orany
ether government. The drydock,
coaling plant, barracks and industrial
buildings are .now well on the road
to completion, and within another
year the pommandant and other offi
cers stationed iu Hawaii will be living
at Pearl Harbor, and the yard will be
in partial operation.
"I am sorry to leave Honolulu,"
said Admiral Cowles this morning.
"I Hke the, place, and I like the peo
ple, and my work here has been some
cf the most interesting that- I have
ever had to do during my naval ca
reer. I am sorry not to see Pearl
Harbor further along toward comple

dered 'to sea duty he goes, And of
course I am getting a fine command.
I shall always feel a warm personal
interest in Hawaii, and I am-sure that
my successor, whoever he may be,
can not lie'p but like the station as
I have liked it."
Mrs. Cowles and Miss Cowles are
expected to return tomorrow on the
transport, after a visit to the main
land. They will probably leave here
with Admiral Cowles, and take up
their residence either in San Fran
