By Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Oct. 24.
Charles R. Page of San Francisco,
who has just assumed his duties in
Washington, D. C, as a-member of
the F'ederal Shipping board, comes
from a family which has devoted itself
to the shipping business and its allied
activities as few American families of
the present day and generation have
During the good old clipper ship
days, when the American merchant
flag dominated the- seven seas, this
common interest of a family in ship
ping activities was a characteristic of
many New England households.
Mr.. Page's father, the late Charles
Page, for jyears was associated with
Milton Andros in San Francisco in the
practice of admirality law, in which
both won a wide reputation. The new
shipping board member is a nephew
of Arthur and George Page, prominent
San Francisco shipbrokers; and he is
a brother of Stanley H. Page, vice
president of the Union "Gas Engine
Company' of Oakjand, manufacturers
of marine engines.
Through his father, he is related to
famous Liljewalch family, owners of
the Neptune Salvage Company of
Stockholm, probably the largest com
pany of its kind in the world.
Mr. Page was born in San Francisco
on May 24, 1S78, which makes him 40
years of age. It was natural that he
should be encouraged to develop an
early interest in maritime affairs
After graduating from Yale with the
class of 1900, he shipped from New
York as a member of the crew of the
Arthur Sewall, of Bath, Me., a well
known sailing vessel. Upon his return
he went to Europe, where he traveled
extensively for the better part of a
Last year Mr. Page, in behalf of the
Firemen's Fund Insurance Co., of
which he was general auditor, made a
careful trip of. investigation along
both the east and west coasts of South
America. In view of our rapid trade
development with South America, the
knowledge of conditions and customs
! which he obtained on this trip should
be a material asset. ,
For the last ten years he has been
chairman of the adjustment commit
tee of the San Francisco Board of Ma
rine Underwriters. He wa3 also for
merly president of the Association of
After ' arriving in Honolulu yester
day morning xn her regular fun from
Maui ports, the steamer Claudine
made a special voyagle to Kahului to
get a contingent of the Maui Nation
al Guard. The Manna loa made a
special voyage on the previous night.

Fate is Kind to Congressmen
and Smooth Seas Prevail
on Run to Kaialua
fjhe power that controls the action
of the sea waves was kind to the
congressional party which went to
Kona by the Inter-Island steamer
Kilauea on Saturday night, state the
ship's officers. An extraordinarily
smooth voyage was enjoyed and the
congressmen are declared to have
been delighted with the entire voy
age. Many expressions of wonder were
heard from them at the excellence of
food served on the Inter-Island ship.
They also expressed surprise that on
a steamer the size of the Kilauea so
much comfort could be enjoyed.
The Kilauea left Honolulu Satur
day evening at .5 o'clock on the spec
ial voyage. The ship arrived in Kai
lua about 7 o'clock the next morning,
After the congressmen disembark
ed, the Kilauea went to Mahukona
where the Kohala contingent of the
National Guard under the command
bf Captain Samuel Parker Woods
was taken aboard. The steamer ar
rived back in Honolulu this morning
early, after a stop of two hours or
more was made off Lahaina. There
were 114 guardsmen in the Kohala
Captain A. C. Simerson was in com
mand of the Kilauea on the special
voyage and James Friel, chief landing
clerk for the Inter-Island in Honolu
lu, made the voyage s purser.

cide of Sylvester H. Law ton, U.S.N..,
one of the best known and most pop

shot himself at the Navy yard hospi

fact that he was unable to return to

at war .with Germany.
Lawton was formerly navigating
and executive officer of the cruiser
St. Louis, and was stationed at Yerba
Buena for seme time. When the ship
was ordered to Hawaii he made the
trip to Honolulu and returned hero
