Inquiries Are Now
Honolulu, March 16. While the
work on the local fortifications un
der the direction of Captain Otwell
is going on quietly but surely, th
military authorities at Washington
are already beginning to get ready
for the shipment of ordnance which
;s to make Hawaii the stronghold
of the Pacific, and it is expected
that in the near, future the guns
which are to defend this outpost
against enemies coming from any
where will soon be here.
Along the waterfront it has bee
reported for the last few days that
preparations were being discusse
for the landing of the big guns
On inqury being made at the office
f the Depot Quartermaster this
morning it was learned that the
War Department a short time ago
sked that inquiries be made as to
hat facilities were offered locally
for the handling of a shipment of
lortars which were to be sent to
Honolulu in a transport in the
near future. This matter was re
ferred to McCabe, Hamilton it
Rennie, the stevedore firm, which
answered that it would be able to
take the gun? from on board ship
ithout any difficulty. It was
stated that these- mortars would
weigh between sixteen und eighteen
tons each, without their carriages,
Inch could be handled separately.
"Yes, we were asked if we could
take the guns ashore," said Charles
Bon, of McCabe, Hamilton & Ren-
ie, this morning, "and we answer
ed that we would be able to do so.
We have handled plantation ma-
hirtery which was as heavy as
that, and we? have taken ashore
steam rollers weighing as much as
twenty-eight tons. The inquiry
wus merely in regard to the land
ing of the mortars, and nothing
was said about the transportation
of them from the wharf to their
While the shipment of the mor
tars will take place very soon the
waterfront is more interested in
the arrival of the big 14-inch rifles,
which will come later. It is un-
stood that these guns weigh about
thirty-eight tons each without their
carriages, and that the matter of
transporting them to their destina
tion will be one which will present
considerable difficulty on account
of their enormous weight. In San
Francisco, it is said, the contractors
who handled some of these guns
lost money on account of the fact
that much damage was done to the
roads over which they took them,
culverts and drains being broken
by the pressure, and it is believed
that the same difficulties will pre
sent themselves here to an even
more marked degree. Several
mechanical experts who have been
useu tc the handling of heavy
weights, are at present figuring on
devices for the purposj, and there
will probably be some competition
offered if the contracts for the haul
ing of the guns are to be let by

Mr. Parsons' eyes took on an ab
stracted expression. "I knew a
man who once owned a pile driv

piece of work, and when it was in
action its stroke sounded as if the
real thing was pounding the table
in the white House. Now this man
finally got a real human affection
for the pile driver and would talk
to it in a friendly and endearing

tinkering with it when one of the
workmen warned him to stand

came quite peevish and retorted in
a heated and unchristian spirit,
saying that his pile driver would

chance it got busy and the poor
man fell quite flat."
"What become of the pile driver
then?" he was asked.

"No," said Mr. Parsons, "not a

along with more names. But I
guess Herbert is all right. That
shows how tilings change. If I was
Bertie I probably would not, be de

nevertheless considerably obscured.

Wife is Afraid.
PORTLAND, Ore., March 9.
Declaring that Mrs. Robert Louis
Stevenson, her mother-in-law, is
endeavoring to induce her to seek
divorce from her husband and that
she fears Mrs. Stevenson will kidnap
her children, Mrs. Lloyd OsUmmc,
wife of the author, has left her San
Francisco home and, with her sons,
is staying at the residence of Colonel
II. E. Doseh, near Portland. Mrs.
Osbourne reluctantly told her entire
story today and severely censured
Mrs. Stevenson as the cause of all
her domestic difficulties.
For several years Mrs. . Stevenson
has done her utmost to bring about
a legal separation between her son
and his wife, according to Mrs.
Osbourne. By using her control of
the Stevenson estate the mother won
Oslxiurne to her side, the wife de
clares, and I Kith have used every
effort to bring about a divorce,
among other things offering her n
large amount of money if she would
institute charges, Mrs. Osbourne
Finally Mrs. Osliourne says she
hoard that Mrs. Stevenson was try
ing to kidnap one of her sons to use
as a club in bringing alout a divorce.
Employes of Mrs. Stevenson, she
ays, watched her San Francisco
louse, and so she sent Allan, her
Ider son, to Portland several weeks
ago. Mrs. Osliourne and her young-
it son, Louis, have been in New
York and arrived in Portland yes
terday and went to the Dosch resi-
lence at Hillsdale.
I came to Hillsdale hoping to
lido from Mrs. Stevenson," said
Mrs. Osliourne. I have feared that
she would attempt to kidnap the
children from our San Francisco
ionic. If Mrs. Stevenson could gain
possession of one of the Uiys she
knows she could compel me to seek
a divorce from my husband as the
price of regaining him.
Mr. Osliourne is at present in
New York, and we are good friends
As my friends know, the only thing
that has come Ixtwecn Mr. Oslxmrnc
and myself has been Mrs. Stevenson
Always an eccentric woman, she
became apparently insanely jealous
of me. Mrs. Stevenson has complete
control of the Oslxiurnc estate dur
ing her lifetime. She is very wealthy
and used tins wealth as a means to
rule everyone alnmt her. She made
life so miserable for me during the
time that Mr. Osltourno and I livec
with her that Mr. Oslndime himself
suggested that I leave for my own
"During the four years that we
lived in Italy I received an , allow
ance regularly and Mr. Osliourne
and I corresponded. His mothe
gave him his choice of living wit'
her and having his regularallowance
or of remaining with me and lwing
cut off. Mr. Osliourne is clever and
a nice fellow, but was not able t
"A pile driver is a
tand by his own family against his
lother and her money.
"Since then Inith Mrs. Stevenson
and Mr. Oslourne have tried re
peatedly to force me into securing a
livoree. They very recently made
me an offer of a very large sum of
loney if I would but bring charges
gainst him. I have too much res
pect for iMith my self and for Robert
Imis Stevenson's memory.
'When she found that she could
not buy me into securing a divorce,
he attempted to starve me into it.
She instructed the New York attor
ney through whom my allowance
ame not to pay me any money. He
thheld each month's remittance
as it was sent him by Mr. Osbourne.
This I discovered while in New
oik, and I will say that Mr.
OslKturne knew nothing of it.
'Mrs. Stevenson in now staying
n Santa Barbara. At last her atti
tude iK'came such that I no longer
ared stay in San Franciscov I fear
ed that any minute she or her agents
light kidnap one of the lxiya. Men
ere watching the house and I de
cided to come to the Dosch place at
lilldale, where I believed no one
ould know where or who we were."
