t Extract from statement made by $
'$ Manager Balch. of the "United, 3
' Wireless Company this morning.
-4 . 4
That Honolulu will soon be In even
closer- touch wlth the mainland; and
the rest of' the world, by means of
tie largest wlrelfis station ever built,
was the gist of the Information givta
out by" Manager Balch of the United
WlreleBB Company" this morning. This
stlatloa which will, when completed
cover more than two miles of ground,
with masts; moite than four hundred
feet; high, and weighing in. all more
than a thousand tons, is to be rushed
to completion as soon as possible.
Orders, to this effect have been re
ceived by .cabte from the Marconi
'headquarters in the East, and a spec
ial resident engineer, who jhas been
detailed . for several months I studying
the construction of the greet chain
of wireless .stations planned, by the
British government, will be here with
in a short time tqtake charge of
rtie 'construction work. ; ;
The selection of a site has not yet
been made,; said Mr. -Balch but the
station will probably go up either in
the Vicinity of Koko Head, whTre an
option on a. large tract of land has
"been -secured, or near the present
Kahuku Wireless station of the
United Company, Either" site .is most
desirable declared Mr. Balch.-
There wilL be In reality two separ
ate stations, one for receiving only.
which will not , be equipped wlthN
power, and the other the monster
.power station Tor sending purposes.
This arrangement allows the station
to send two and receive two messages
from the same direction at the same
time.- In other words, it will be pos
sible to end at the same moment,
two separate messages to Japan and
and two to San Francisco, and to
Twelve at the moment of sending two
rassages from either directio'n. This
-multiplies the work of all other sta
tions by four "quads it" as the ex
perts 8ay. , ;
; The sending station will be com
posed of two separate iegs.H one for
sending to San Francisco, where ,a
huge station Is now being construc
ted about sixteen.; miles north of the
cijy,t on the shore of Bolinas Bay,
and the other, a longer and heavier
one, for sending to the Oriental sta
tions.V There will be ten masts In
this leg, jabout 1000 feet apart, and
stretching a total length of 4509 feet.
The leg for sending to the Orient will
also have ten masts, stretching over
about 5000 feet, making twenty send
ing masts in all. ...
. The station for receiving from San
Francisco will consist or a row., of
masts four hundred feet high, and
about 4500 feei apart That for work
with the Orient will be five masts,
about 5000 feet apart.
Work on these masts as well as the
steam turbines and other structural
steel work' and machinery is well ad
vanced, says Mr. Balch.

C. A. COTTRILL
Robert W. Cathcart is out for the
position of collector of Internal rev
enue, now held by Charles A. Cottrill,
appointed last year by President Taft.
His name will come before; the Dem
ocratic central committee for. endorse
ment in a few days, he having -been
connected with that party hete eyer
since Its organization.
- In addition, to his party affiliation,
Mr. Cathcart 'presents his business ex
perience in support of his candidacy.
He was 1 the accountant of the late
firm of Wilder & Co., Ltd., for twenty-1
six years.' After the dissolution of
that, corporation he did special work
for various ; concerns, and under the
first municipal board he was chief
clerk of the road department. Lat
terly he has been connected with the
Kaimukl Land Co., Ltd. Mr. Cath
cart makes the pardonable boast that,
although in his time he has handled
large amounts of money, he has never
been required to give a bond.
Although Mr. Cathcart's ' eye isvon
the collectorship of internal revenue,-!
be ' has, , been practlcaljy ; picked fo!
immeGiaie onice as cnier ciertc or tne
road department . when the new board
of supervisors carries out its plan of
reorganization .during the .next.' few-

ability that leading Democrats here
will le content to have Collector Cot-
trill serve out his term "of office even'
under a Decormatic administration
O'ER HUGE EGGS
If the present board of supervisors
cannot lay good streets, the hens of
Kaimukl can lay good egg& that are
not to be sneezed at, and are some
thing to be proud of.
J. Lando of Twelfth avenue, Kaimu
kl, has a white Plymouth Rock hen
that lax t week presented him with an
egg, the raeasurmenta of which were:
circumference the long way, eight and
five-eighths inches; circumference the
short way, seven Inches. The eggs
weighs full five ounces. The egg t-as
rot been broken yet so that the cn-,

A white leghorn hen belonging to
one of the staff of thi& paper, also of
Kaimukl, recently presented the fam
ily with an egg that was slightly un
