To Our We wish to thank tho romiers of tlio News for thoir
Readers, patience when seeing many items of interest crow
dedout each week during the past live weeks for want of space
due to the publication of advertising matter.
News paper work is far from a lucrative business proposition
and while the public are entitled to read of all matters of interest
in the immediate community it is impossible for us to resist the
temptation to publish all good puying advertising mailer whenever
we are able to get it for this is the best paying part of any news
Lack of type has made it impossible for us to publish another
sheet. Lack of space has matie it impossible, for us to publish
many items of interest.
The circumstances under which wo labor is understood by our
readers here and we appreciate their altitude and will try all tho
more in future to give the public the best service possible.
Good times Tho cablegram announcing the plan of the Fid-
In Sight. eral Government to make Honolulu a great Naval
base while not official is probably the truth and will mean much
for the whole Territory and will result in the expenditure of large
sums of money here annually. The effect of this will be felt in
every line of business and will do much to build up the Territory
in lines other than the one great staple that has been almost the
sole source of income for the Territory in the past.
If this plan becomes a realization which it seems that it will it
will give a market for large quantities of produce that now rinds no
market whatever. It will give employment to a great number of
men for a number of years and put incirculation large sums of
money for purposes never before known to the Territory. Even
after the completion of whatever improvements are contemplated
much money will be-expended hero annually assuring good times
for the whole Territory and will lead many to open up new indust
ries and add to the taxable value of the property here.
The great interest in the Territory shown by many members of
Congress means much for Hawaii and better times and more in
telligent legislation for the Territory is assured.
No War Cloud Those who felt that a war or any serious coin
in Sight. plications with Japan was probable evidently
have not studied the situation.
Those who were the most persistent in their demands for pro
per redress for the wrongs done certain Japanese in the city of
San Francisco by a crowd of irrespons iblo hnodleums demanded
an apopogy from the Mayor of the city. Now as he was then un
der indictment on many charges of graft and all felt certain that
he would be sentenced to prison the natural inference is that these
same agitators of Japan were anxious to accept an apology from a
criminal who would have had to write his apology in San Quentiu.
Certainly those who would accept an apology from a criminal while
in one of the nost noted penal institutions are too easily appeased
to be taken seriously.
Schmitz's The announcement of Ex-Mayor Schmitz
Announcement, that in the event of his escape from prision
he W'll again be a candidate for the highest ollice in the gift of the
city of San Francisco is not to be wondered at if one tenth of the
reports of the guilt of the man are to be believed. With him ollice
holding seems to have been one of the greatest grafts ever per
petrated on a suffering community while he reveled in ill gotten
gold He tasted of the forbidden fruit and it was good.
He seems to believe there are enough thieves in the city to
again place him in power. In this he is probably mistaken. The
government of the thieves for the thieves may be all very well for
them but their tyranny and oppression will not bo endured for any
great length of time without their overthrow and ones such a mob
is put down and out it is not reasonable to believe the public
would again place them in power.
If the claims of the prosecution are true, and most people be
lieve they are true, Schmitz should be sent to San Quentin for the
rest of his natural life. He is entitled to no mercy whatever and
his sentence should be a warning to others.
Kumerlc Pllikla Pau.
Honolulu, July 1. The sooner the
steamship Kumeric shows Honolulu
her heels the better pleased will be
the Federal Quarantine officials and
the better off everybody concerned
, will be, including Charles Frederick
Chillingworth who has chartered the
vessel to carry Japanese to Vancou
Smoke and acid have been used in
the Kumeric's hold and she is ready
to put to sea except for taking aboard
her Japanese passengers.
This morning instructions were is
sued by the Marine Hospital Service
for her to yet away from the quar
antine wharf and anchor in the
stream. It was at la st desired that
she be towed outside the harbor and
her passengers embark there, but it
was learned that eighteen hours
would be required to fiet up steam
and no tuy or island steamer would
take the risk of towing the great,
unwieldy towering hulk through the
channel without any assistance from
the vessel's own screw.
Then it was planned to move the
cable-ship Restorer to some wharf
and give the place occupied at pres
ent by tho Restorer in naval row to
the Kumeric, but the Restorer also
would have required several hours to
get up steam to handle her heavy
anchors and shift position and it was
urgent that the Kumeric be moved
iu a hurry. She was ordered moved
from the quarantine wharf to lie be
tween that wharf and the Restorer
with guards in smailbouts to see thai
none of the seventy-three stowaways
aboard should endeavor to escape.
Yesterday these stowaways made
an effort to get away and many of
them did manage to gel- c& far as on
the quarantine wharf. They were
secured and placed back aboard shij
and eighteen guards employed to &ee
that they did not again make un at
tempt to escape.
United States Inspectors of Hulls
and Boilers Bulles and Iinlger this
forenoon went aboard the Kumeric
to examine her hull and boilers and
view her steerage past-engf r accom
modation. At noon they completed
their work nid the ship was ready
to take passengers.
Tomorrow the Japs going to Van
couver bag and baggnge, will bo
husiled aboard and it is expected
that the emigrant ship will be ready
to sail on Wednesday.
While there are, according U Chil
lingworth, ten thousand Japanese
ready and anxious to get to Ccnada
and while it is believed the Kumeric
eiuld be packed with between 2,000
and 3,000 in the steerage, the number
to leave here at the present reckon
iaj; will be 1,571, and to accommodate
these 305 new bunks will have to bo
put iu at once.
Chillingworth himself will not go to
Canada in the, Kumeric. He will take
passage for San Francisco in the S
S. Alameda sailing at 10 o'clock
Wednesday morning and will go to
Vancouver by rail from San Fran
The greatest, trouble in connection
with the Kumeric, s presence here is
experienced with the stowaways. For
these people the ship is responsible
and a heavy line would be imposed on
Captain l.laird if t ny one of them man
aged to affect an escape. They must
be taken a.vay in the Kumoric ard it
is immaterial to the Quarantine olfi
eials what becomes of them as long
as they are not landed here. The
immigration law requires that they
be returned whence they came and
by the steamship people.
Inspector Hendricks of the Immi
gration Bureau, Washington, the
doctors and nurses who came from
Funshal with the Portuguese immii
giants in the Kumeric will remain
here, staying in quarantine until
fourteen days from the vessel's arri
val have expired.
