Tho four masted barkentine "Ha
waii , Uapt. iMcIjCOU, lormoriv ot
,tho ''Lurlino", arrived outside of
Kahului on Thursday afternoon with
coal for Kihoi. Being a foreign
vessel flying the Chilean flag, the
customs officer at Kahului refused
to allow her to unload at Kihoi, that
not being a port of entiy. Tho
United States shipping law Is quite
positive on this point, and she will
have to enter and unload either av
Kahului for which port she cleared,
or at some other port oi entry on
tho Islands. The bark "Antiopo"
experienced the same trouble some
time since, under similar conditions,
and had to unload her cargo at
Kahului and have it carried to Kihei
by rail. A law has just been intro
duced in congress to correct this.
