SHELDON THIISpilf CES TO
THE LEGISLATURE UNVEIL THE
SHOULD ACT MBlllI
William J. Sheldon, of Waimea,Ka-
nak veteran representative from r-. the
Garden Island, believes that the pres
ent' controversy between the Inter
Island Steam Navigation Company
and the Masters Mates and Pilots' As
sociation, Is important enough to de
serve' legislative attention, and ac
cordingly Mr. Sheldon plans to bring
the matter up when the legislature
meets next month.
Representative. Sheldon is quoted
by a man who returned from Kauai
yesterday as saying that if the Inter
Island tries to puf new men in as
mates there is likely to be a marine
disaster that will shock the territory.
He holds that the men brought down
from the-coast have not enough expe
rience in local waters.
According to reports from Kauai,
Mr. Sheldon hones to have the legis
lature take. the matter up and if feas
ible pass a law that would prevent
men unfamiliar with Hawaiian waters
being put in responsible positions "re
quiring them to navigate the steamers
which ply in these waters.
"It waa pointed out this morning that
the territory very likely has no power
to pass such a law because of the
federal regulations controlling inter
Island and high-seas navigation.
Seven million dollars for an in
vestment of $125,000 inside of nine
months is about as "nifty" a killing in
finance as has ever been recorded.
That is what Hon. Paul Isenberg of
Honolulu and his associate, Dr. Rein
hold Hoppe of Oakland, California,
have landed in a little flyer in Cana
dian coal lands. And Mr. Isenberg.
with whatever side partners he may
have in Honolulu, is owner of three
fifths of the interests in the property
heferred to, the sale of which to an
English syndicate he is going over in
the Mongolia to consummate.
"It was not for recreation that I
went to the coast last year," said Mr.
Isenberg this afternoon, "but to look
into the prospects for investment in
Canadian coal lands.
"Meeting Dr. Hoppe in California.
I sent him up there ?r? investigate,
and on his return he sent for me at
ixs Angeles, where we talked the
matter over. I decided to come down
and consult with my friends about it,
and I raised enough money to go
ahead with the preliminary work.
"Then I returned to the coast and
Dr. Hoppe went to Ottawa and had
the leases signed ovr? in my name.
The leases are for twenty-one years,
with an option of extension for an
other twenty-one years, at an annual
rental of one dollar an acre and a
royalty of five cents a ton on the
coal. There ;re eleven- claims of 2560
acres each, making a total of 28, 16
acres, and we have paid a year's
rental in advance amounting to $28,
000 and odd.

socialists hate planned and carded In
? The Armstrong memorial will be
unveiled cn Thursday- of ternoon at
half-past three . o'clock In front of
Panahi Hall, 'Puriahou. The unveiling
will be performed by Mary and Ida
Weaver, grand-nieces of General Arm
strong, and daughters of Judge and
Mrs. P. L. Weaver of this city. The
memorial will be dedicated by a
bevy of small girls from the Punahou
Preparatory School who are descend
ants of the missionaries. This exer
ciser will form one of the pretty and
attractive featares of the program.
The exercises will have special
significance to Kamaainas from the
association of Armstrong with the
early life of the islands and from the
historical character of the addresses
which will be delivered. To malihlnis
the oil, now very rarely heard in Ha
waii, which recites in lofty and poetic
language the glory of the man who
has uplifted a race will be of unusual
interest. Dr. N. B. Emerson, Hawaii's
most learned scholar in the field of
the mele, has written this oil. He has
given a touch of sentiment and of
fire which would do credit to the
mightiest bards of the Hawaiian
people. The oil win be rendered by
Mr. J. T. Kaplhanui of Hauula who
not only oils with old time fervor and
skill but who also brings to the task
a student's interest in the form ad
history of this literary expression.
While a few special invitations have
beea- issued to those who have some
particular connection with the exer
cises, the committee cordially invite
to be present Thursday afternoon all
who are interested in the program
or will wish to unite in doing honor
to General Armstrong. The invita
tion Is to all nationalities and to all
persons who wish to attend.

The generosity of S. M. Damon in do
nating to the navy all the fresh water
necessary for Pearl Harbor, has been
officially recognized by congress. Ad
miral Stanford, chief of the Bureau of
Yards and Dockiv who wa3 here last
summer, brought .the matter before
he house committee on naval affairs.
The army and navy Register re
ports the incident as follows:
The House committee on naval af
fairs has placed on record I's appre
ciation of the act of a citizen of the
island of Oahu upon which is
located the naval station at
Pearl Harbor as well as an
Aimy post. Mr. Damon owns a mag
nificent estate on the island upon a
parcel of which the government sunk
a well from which a natural flow of
500,000 gallons of water per day is ob
tained. This water Is piped to the
naval station, a distance of ;thfee
miles. The water is unlimited and
provides a very satisfactory tupply.
r. Damon made the nominal charge
to the government of $1.00 for this
valuable privilege and civil Engineer
Stanford, chief of the bureau of yards
and docks, stated that the result bad 1

MORE THAN THOUSAND WOMEN
HEAR RAYMOND ROBINS TALK
More than a thousand women
crowded Central Union church last
night for one of the most remarkable
religious meetings ever held in this
city. It was the special meeting for
women held by the Men and Religion
campaigners, and Raymond Robins,
spoke to a church full of women just
as eagerly interested in his message
as the men have been.
Without flowers of eloquence, but
with a directness an dforce that had
more efrect. Mr. Robins dwelt quite
as much along social service and prac
tical civic improvement lines as on
ethics and dogma. Mrs. L. Tenney
Pack, president of the Y. W. C. A.,
presided and on the rostrum were a
number of prominent women of Ho
nolulu Taking as his text the "Social Con
sciousness of Christ." Raymond Rob
ins delivered his message simply but
powerfully. He read the second chap
ter of Luke and laid especial emphasis
on the 19th verse. "But Mary kept
these things and pondered them in
her heart." He spoks, of the close
contact that Christ had with his fel
low men and of the great work he
accomplished through this associa
tion. One oP the strongest points
brought out by the speaker was the
responsibility of the women in the
Men and Religion movement that is
going on all over the world. The
women must help, he said, or the
work wil be of no value. Great
stress was laid on the value of per
sonal service. IV said that under
standing people only comes through
close association. He spoke of his

of the public spirited and generods
attitude of Mr. Dampn.
It is well to make special mention
cf such an act as thii and we publish
that part of the hearings before the
committee relating to the matter.
In explaining what had been done
with a previous appropriation for a
water supply Civil Engineer Stanford
i A well has been sunk which Is
yielding 900,000 gallons of water per
day. The water has been prononuced
by the bureau of medicine and sur
gery Luitable for portable use. The
veil is on an area which has been of
fered by Mr. Damon at a cost of $1.
a nominal charge, and gives the gov
ernment what might be called an un
limited and satisfactory supply, which
should be good for an indefinite
period. Execution of jtitle papers
transferring the property is now be
ing arranged. The money pervlously
appropriated will be used for neces
sary pumping equipment and for pipe
line to connect the well with the yard
a distance of about 3 miles, and to
