HAVE VC'wR BAGGAGE HANDLED BY RELIABLE BAGGAGE-MEN
The master of the Cesie Dollar a
vessel of th well-known Dollar line,
which has just left this port Captain
J. Graham, is a Liverpool Irishman,
and he has a decided and entertaining
lersonaIity, says the Vancouver News-
Advertiser. Special interest attaches
him just now as the inventor of the
Graham davit, a davit which has al-
ready been tested and found satisfac-
tory by the British board of trade,
zwl which will probably be installed
I upon the White Star line's new mam
J rroth liner, Drittanic a proceeding
j which, added to the board of trade's
! approbation, will add the necessary
In the official tests which followed
the Titanic disaster, Captain Graham's
invention was chosen before 65 other
davits as the b'est, both for strength
and for facility, in loading the boats.
Some idea may be given of the ad
vance which this invention has made
over all previous inventions by the
-tateroent that the time occupied in
lowering, raising and placing back in
position on the deck a boat, when the
Graham davif was used, was five min
utes, the next best davit taking twenty-three
minutes to perform tne same
operation. The Graham davit has just
been erected upon the Southampton
, In the course of a chat while at Van
couver, Captain Graham, who was for
some years chief officer on the Blue
Punnet liner Glaucus, narrated these
and other things. He has. he said,
been engaged for five years puzzling
out and perfecting the davit.
He explained its mechanism. It is a
single, double-plated davit with lattice
work sides. Instead of using Manila
rope, which, after it has been wetted
a few times, is apt to swell and jamb
in the blocks, Captain Graham has in
troduced a chain fall for lowering and
hoisting the boat The chain runs over
a. roller at the projecting point of the
davit and passes down through the
middle of the doutye plated davit over
a serie's of rollers, being operated by
a. small windlass situated at the base
of the davit Instead of having the
ling bolts on which to hook the falls
at each end of the boat, this Invention
has two rigid rods made fast to the
thwarts of the boat, the idea of this be
ing to atop it from canting. The davit
(alls are attached to the boat not in
the center, but two-thirds towards the
fore part, this arrangement making it
possible to swing the boat in by means
of the single davit The rigid rods,
when the small brass pin is pulled out,
falls Into the bottom of the boat when
It is iu use and thus do noti obstruct
the working of the boat at all. The
hook at the end of the davit falls, auto
matically disengaging itself as soon as
rhe boat is in the water.
This davit was Inspected by a well
known officer and recommended to the
White Star Line.
Captain Graham has experienced a
remarkably rapid rise with the Robert
Dollar line. He came to the Pacific
Coast as chief officer on the Robert
Dollar comparatively recently upon her
maiden trip, and after seven months
jn that posiiton was made master of
.he Bessie Dollar.
Chiyo Maru Delayed Awaiting Mail.
The prospect of mail from the coast
caused a slight delay in the departure
cf the Toyo Kisen Kaisha liner Chiyo
Maru for San Francisco. The big
steamer remained at the berth at Ala
kea wharf, pending the arrival of the
sister ship, the Shinyo Maru. The
spectacle of two immense transpacific
steamers of the same company lying
t.ide by side at Alakea slip was one
that may not be presented to fccal
waterfronters for some time to come.
The Chiyo Maru sailed for the main
land with a few layover passengers.
Hilonian Made Brief Stay.
The Matson Navigation steamer Hi
lonian, an arrival from San Francisco
and Seattle by the way of Hilo late
yesterday afternoon, did not remain
long at Honolulu. This vessel took
a line from the station ship Falls of
Clyde last evening, and towed that
vessel to Kaanapali, where the Falls
of Clyde is to be discharged of a
shipment of fuel oil. The Hilonian
is expected will return to Honolulu
today, while the sailing ship now
used by the Associated Oil Company
as a Btorage tanker will remain at
the Maui port until a later date.
Schoornr Dauntless Has Been Dis
charged. The last of a consignment of luni- j
ber brought down from the Sound j
and arriving here on December 30th
in the American schooner Dauntless '
has been discharged and that vessel j
is being made ready for sea. The i
Dauntless will be sent to the quar
antine wharf for fumigation. It is the .
present intention to dispatch the vet?

S IT OPIUM
OR STEADY JOB?
Officers in the Pacific Mail trans
Pacific service have been given their
iast chance at a continuous connection
with the paymaster's department.
"Take your choice between dabbling
with opium, or retaining a steady job,"
is the slogan that has been sounded.
The discovery of a single tin of
opium in the quarters of an officer or
employe of the Pacific Mail Steam
ship company will hereafter result in
the officer's discharge from the com
Tbis, the most drastic action ever
taken by a steamship company oper
ating out of San Francisco, has been
decided upon as a result of the numer
ous discoveries of contraband in the
staterooms and quarters of the Pa
cific Mail's employes.
In each of these cases a fine has
been levied against the company and
the amount of fines now assessed by
Uncle Sam has resulted, it Is said, in
the company determining to assist the
government in the elimination of the
For months it has been the conten
tion of the San Francisco 'customs of
ficers and special agents that although
the opium has usually been discovered
in the possession of the Chinese em
ployed by the company, the traffic has
existed with the full knowledge of at
least a portion of the white officers on
According to customs officers the
action of the Pacific Mail will result
in the practical elimination of the
opium traffic on their steamers. If
the same rule had existed during the
past year it is said that dozens of the
officers now in the employ of the Pa
cific Mail would have been discharged.
"The company has concluded that it
is time for it to take some decided
action in the matter," satd one of the
official. "It seems to be the Impres
sion among many that the officials are
winking at all efforts of the smugglers
to carry on their business while em
ployed by the company.
"This is not true and does not re
flect the attitude of the company
toward the men in its employ that
break r the la ws of this country. If
there is any doubt about what the
company means to do in the matter
just wait and see the result of the
first case in which a tin of opium is
discovered in the quarters of one of
"It will not matter who the officer
is. Even if a five-tael tin or the smok
ing drug is discovered in the quarters
of one of the captains, the result will
be the same. We will get a new com
mander. The rule will apply from the
skipper on the bridge to one of the
watchmen or quartermasters below."
Chiyo Brings News of Many Changes.
A number of important changes have
taken place in Pacific Mail official
circles in tne Far East according to a
report that reached Honolulu with the
arrival of the Japanese liner Chiyo
Maru. R. C. Morton, agent at Shang
hai, has been promoted to the .Kobe
agency. W. W. Campbell, who was the
agent at Kobe, has been transferred to
Yokohama and W. A. Matteson, who
was chief 'clerk in the Yokohama of
fice, has been appointed - agent at
Shanghai. These officials are all more
or less well known at Honolulu, having
passed through the port in transit from
the Far East to the coast on several
The story also comes from the coast
by the Shinyo Maru that A. M. Gar
land has resigned as freight and traf
fic manager for the Pacific Mail Com
pany and that F. F. Connor has been
appointed as his successor.
Hawaiian Pines May Be Saved.
Two thousand cases of preserved
pineapples from the Hawaiian Islands,
supplied the Harrison Direct Line
freighter Workman as part cargo on
the occasion of the visit of that ves
sel at the port some months ago
may not prove a total loss as first
supposed. A cable at San Francisco
received from London at the time of
departure of the Shinyo Maru was to
the effect that the Workman which
went ashore near the entrance to the
harbor of Rio Janeiro is leaking but
slightly, the pumps keeping down the
water to a satisfactory extent It is
reported that the results are uncer
tain and coupled with a heavy expense
the prospect did fair for the refloat
ing of the vessel. A portion of the
heavy cargo of preserved fruits has
Salvator to the Marine Railway.
The keel of the schooner Salvator,
which was badly damaged through
contact with the reef, some weeks ago
will be replaced and the vessel was
hauled to th marine railway this
morning in order that the necessary
repairs could be completed. The Sal
vator will be given a general over
hauling before proceeding to the
Sound to load another cargo.
The American-Hawaiian freighter
Columbian is to sail for Salina Cruz
by the way of island ports tomorrow.
The Columbian is expected to carry
the regulation 1 2.000 tons sugar for
transhipment at Salina Cruz.

NEW YORK. Dec. 23 In the sum
mer of 1910 the Matilda, a sloop of 7
tons, dropped anchor in the Galveston
barbor earl) one morning. Five hardy
oung adventurers formed the crew
and the articles stated that the vessel
was going on a cruise in the Caribbean
From that day to this not a word
had been heard of the Matilda
Today the little steamer Altai of the
Hamburg-American line, bound from
the West Indies, tied up in the East
river and seven passengers came
ashcre. " One of these was Charles
Morrison. 6 feet 4 inches in stature.
Morrison was one of the men who sail
ed on the Matilda in quest of treasure
"I was one of five who sailed on the
sloop Matilda from Galveston two and
a half years ago," he said. "A man
named Hastings was the leader of the
expedition. He said he waa a descend
ant of Captain Hastings, who pirated
on the Spanish main in Morgan's time.
The captain had left a chart showing
where his treasure was buried on an
island in the Los Roques group. We
found the island without difficulty and
Hastings and three more went ashore,
leaving me in charge of the boat A
fierce gale came up and wrecked our
boat. We were marooned, but there
were plenty of birds and lots of fruit
"We found a cave in which was the
skeleton of a man, and the bones were
spread on the floor of the cave in the
shape of a Maltese cross. It looked as
if the man had been staked or pitted
to the ground.
"We saw nothing nor heard nothing
from the sea until about a year ago.
Then one night we saw rockets break
ing and sputtering in the sky. A ship
wa3 nearby and in distress, but we
could not help her.
"We waited till morning and then
went down to the shore. A littkl
schooner was wedged fast on the spit
and the waves were completing the
work of the storm of the night before.
We found that she had a cargo of lux
uries consisting chiefly of tea, coffee
and champagne. It took us a week to
carry the cargo ashore, then the vessel
"About two months agt a boat put
in our island for water, i was assigned
to come back to the states to fit out
"And how about the treasure trove V
Morrison was asked.
"Oh, I had forgotten about thef
treasure trove. Well, I am going to
get another boat and go after my com
panions,'' and he smiled a knowing
smile and would not say just where
the island is.
OFFICERS HERE FAVOR
THE OLD ARMY CANTEEN
News that the House committee on
Ti'ilitary affairs had come out. in favor
of the re-establishment - of the army
canteen, carried in Washington dis
patches to the Star-Bulletin yesterday,
waa received with unqualified ai
(.-ioyai by officers of this department,
who believe almost to a man that stop
ping the sale of beer and light winea
by the post exchanges has been direct
ly responsible for much of the interm
it rence and disease in the ranks.
At Schofield Barracks especially,
would the canteen be a boon to the
soldiers, who are cut off from much;
of the social intercourse and amuse
ment that the men stationed at posts
nearer the city can take advantage of.
It is believed that f the post ex
changes were run more as clubs for
the enlisted men, along the old lines,
the soldiers would make fewer trips,
to the city, save more money, and be
generally more contended.
Local officers call attention to the
fact that Secretary of War Stinason,
in his annual report says:
"I believe that the so-called anti
canteen legislation has been respon
sible for much vice. During the last
year I have visited and inspected per
sonally nearly half of the 4! mobile
army posts in the United States. In
almost every instance I have found
the military reservations adjoined by
dives and ill resorts of the vilest
character. The testimony of officers
of the army is almost unanimous to
the effect that these establishments
have risen, or greaTiy increased in
numbers since the sale of lignt wines
or beer at the post exchanges has
been abolished. By that legislation
the soldier is in effect deprived of his
garrison club, where formerly it was
comparatively easy to keep him for
his amusements, and he now resorts
for his liquor to places where every
form of temptation surrounds him.
There may have been, and probably
were, abuses in the methods of some
of the so-called canteens as managed
under the system now abolished by
law; but these abuses were not neces
sary or inherent to the system, and I
am very confident, from my personal
investigation, that most of the post
exchanges under that system consti
tute effective and practical instru
ments toward army temperance and
cleanness of living, and that a very
considerable percentage of the evils
from which the army is now suffering
is directly attributable to their aboli
tion. Wm. J. Coeiho is to be editor of Ke

gone by the board. The local com

days and seemed to think the usual

shaved down. And then National

Three Great Parades
If the military plans are carried
out, Honolulu will see three great
parades in one day. The Floral
Parade in the afternoon is expected
to be much larger than the last one
It appears from work being done by
various decorators that the figure of
Washington is likely to loom large
among the various decorations, and
that Honolulu will show that, if she
is lively for entertainment, she ia
also lively in patriotism.
In the evening will come the great
Japanese lantern parade. This is an
idea originated some years ago, by
the Japanese themselves, and carried
out with an enthusiasm that aston
ished the community. Honolulans
and visitors alike cheered and raved
over it, and this year the Japanese,
with a strong committee, are planning
to repeat the performance.

The printed order of the Western
Division, moving. the Vocal, organiza
tions and designating, station for tne
troops soon to arrive, reached depart
ment headquarters in this morning's
mail. It assigns the, 10th company of
coast artillery to Fort Ruger. but this
has already been corrected by cable,
substituting Fort De Ruasy. It seems
that the mix-up occurred because the
code word for De Ruasy in the orig
inal wire from the adjutant genera'
of the army to the Western Division
commander, was misunderstood. , The
troops were designated to station! aft-,
er consultation between the adjutant
general and General Macomb, who
is now In Washington.
The board oT officers convened at
Schofield Barracks and Fort Shatter
to examine officers for promotion,
have been annulled by division orders.
This is due to the removal from
Schofield of the two battalions of the
Second, and the consequent increase
of high ranking officers at Shafter.
When the Twenty-fifth Infantry and
Fourth Cavalry arrive, new boards
will be named.
