Advertising The Southern Pacific is planning to
For Tourists bring California to the attention of the
Eastern tourist durin? the approach
ing autumn and winter months as it lias newr
been done before. The information was given
out yesterday that the company hits set aside
1100,000 for the purpose of advertising the Coast
Line and Shasta route in the Eastern magazines,
beginning with the November issues, and an effort
will be made to show the Easterner who spends
his winters away from home that there is a stretch
of coast country in California that is worth cross
ing the continent to visit.- Chronicle,
The Hawaiian Islands can offer almost as varied an assortment
of scenery as California, or any other western state, and when it
comes to out of the ordinary attractions the islands are hard to
beat. Maui has its share of attractive scenery, which will com
pare favorably with that of the other islands, but the trouble is
enough of the tourists who come to the islands do not know what
is to be seen, or if they do know and express a desire to see them
some one is at hand to discourage them. If a state like California
through its railroads, finds it profitable to expend a hundred
thousand dollars in twelve months' time to let people thousands of
of miles away know what they have worth crossing the continent
to see, surely these on Maui who are directly benefitted by an in
flux of tourists should be willing to contribute one-hundredth as
much towards putting forth the attractions of Maui.
Who Is To
The Literary Digest, in speaking of the doctored
cotton reports, says:
The proof that the Government cotton crop reports
were "doctored" and sold in advance of official publica
tion to brokers interested in the cott on market; the charge
and growing suspicion that trouble of a similar nature
exists in regard to the tobacco reports; the exposure of
the scheme of a department scientist to exploit under the
prestigo of his position an invention to the profit of a pri
vate commercial company; and the dismissals and reig
nations which have followed these scandals, together with
the return of one proirinent ex-oflicial to his old home in
England and the refusal of other men recently connected
with the Government to testify before the grand jury for
fear of incriminating themselves, prompts the New York
Herald (Ind.) to remark that " the public is getting a good
idea of the conditions wbicn prevail in the Department of
This unpleasant outlook seems to be due largely to the
fact that Secretary Wilson has found something to con
demn or correct in the several bureaus which have so far
been examined in the course of the general overhauling
which he is giving his department. The June report of
the tobxcco crop was as glaringly wrong as was the report
of the cotton crop. The increase of acreage was given as
20 per cent. The Secretary detected the error immedi
ately after publication and issued a revised report show
ing that the increase was only 1 per cent.
No blame is attached to Secretary Wilson nor is there any in
timation of collusion on his part, rather has he done all possible to
ferret out and stop the "leaks."
The Hitch In . As forecasted in the mainland press the
Negotiations hitch in the negotiations came when the clause
ceding the island of Saghalian was reached, the Japanese envoys
askintr sixty million dollars for the upper half. The San Francisco
Chronicle intimates that a settlement of this clause may be brought
abcut by the joint occupation of the island, yet this is hardly
believed possible by those who are in close touch as the former
ejectment of Japan from Saghalien with Ku riles islands as her
only compensation was the original cause of her enmity towards
Russia. Possibly President Roosevelt's suggestion of paying an
indemnity in a round about way may be the means of Russia's ac
ceptance without losing any of her dignity which still seems to
Promotion There seems to be somewhat of a difference of
Publicity opiulon of the work performed by Secretary Boyd
and the Hawaiian Promotioa Committee. This association had at the
outset an excellent opportunity to do good substantial work for
the Islands in a general way, but preferred to confine the data
published principally to Oahu, giving only short mentions of the
sights of the other islands. An institution of the nature of a pro
motion committee must naturally be more general in its-work.
Work on the same lines as has been adopted by the California Pro
motion Committee will show better results at the end of two years
than that of Honolulu organization and cause less fr'ction.
New Charts That it is about time the charts of the islands
Needed were being brought up to date has been demon
strated by the two wrecks which have been caused apparently on
the same chain ot uncharted coral reefs on the Maui coast. The
News has been informed that the only chares available are some
compiled many years ago and the data was taken from very old
sounding made by British Warships.
Governor Carter in an Interview in a San Francisco paper says
that he is a changed man and that on his return to active duty he
will work in perfect harmony with his official family. The Gover
nor was always alright, only it needed a trip and perfect rest to
show the Governor that the party would stick to him if he would
stick to the party.

we let go the starboard anchor and
paid out some 30 fathoms, follow
ing the dragging of the port cable
and checking her from tune to
time. I now ordered all hands
down from aloft, leaving the fore
sail mainsail only partly furled,
because the ship was now striking
hard with everything standing on
a tremble aloft.
As I said, she pounded pretty
hard, making everything shake
aloft and below. The captain now
ordered dinner, which of course un
der the circumstances was rather
improvised; but we Noweigan sail
ors are pretty much to the front as
sailors and incidentally as naviga
tors. After dinner I consulted the cap
tain about the safety of, the crew's
life from falling spars, in case any
thing should give way aloft. We
decided to put over the two life
boats and dinghy and transfer as
much as possible of the captain's
and crew's effects, including the
ship's papers, oflicial log, mate's
log, some compasses, etc., and other
small and portable gear. At 2 p.
m. the ship had three feet of water
in her hold. In the meantime I had
the boats over on the lee side, one
man tending each boat. Between
2 and 3 p. m., July 19, we trans
ferred pretty near all the loose ef
fects to the boats, the captain in
sisting upon staying by the ship
until I was finally ordered off in
No. 2 life boat, myself in charge,
with three sailors, the cook, cabin
boy, carpenter and deck boy and
one or two others. The ship by
this time had five feet of water in
her hold and striking heavily mak
ing everything tremble aloft and
Two men, Mr. John Anderson
and Bill Stevens, an A. B., had
volunteered to stay by the ship and
the dinghy was left at their dis
posal, fully equipped with oars,
rowlocks, rudder, etc., all ready to
leave in case the ship should break
up at short notice. The captain
left the ship in No. 1 life boat
about half an hour after me. We
