juring four men, two of whom are
dangerously hurt and the other two
w badly scalded and bruised that
they will he on t lie sick list for Nunc
time to come, the bursting of a
steam pipe, on the battleship Rear
surge marked the first accident of
any consequence on the Fleet during
its .stay so far in' Hawaiian waters.
Although none of the men is fat
ally injured, the scene during which
clouds of escaping steam boiled forth
from the depths and out of port
holes wa dramatic in the extreme,
for it was not at first known how
many were caught below in the
death-dealing atmosphere. So vast
were (lie clouds of steam that pour
ed forth that they were quickly no
ticed by the othrr ships lying close
by and launches "were immediately
despatched to render all the aid
The steam pipe which burst was
the one which connected 'the forward
starboard boiler with the dynamos.
Five men were in the room wjien
the pipe broke, but fo quickly did
the escaping steam fill the chamber
that only one of them was able to
get to safety. The others, Wilson
water tender, Ferguson 1st class fire
man, and I'otuton and Minor, coal
passers, were imprisoned.
As soon as the explosion was
heard and word was passed that
liws were in danger, the ship's
crew and men were ready to do any
thing in their power to render as
sistanee, and great nerve and grit
were displayed when volunteers
were called for to go below. Wilson,
the water tender, was the most
seriously injured man of those who
were caught, and Ferguson, first
class fireman, was also badly scald
ed ana nurncu uy the escaping
steam. Pompton and Minor both
received only minor injuries, and,
in fact, the chief hurt sustained by
the latter was received when he fell
from the ladder as he was climbing
out. He was overcome by the chok
ing steam as he blindly fumbled his
way up the ladder, falling hack to
the floor of the room again, from
which he was rescued in the nick of
time by the volunteers.
To repair the damage tohe ship,
it was found necessary to draw the
fires of each and every one of the
boilers and allow everything to he-
come cold before starting.
The men who .were injured are
getting along as well as could be ex
pected, none of them being fatally

Honolulu, July 20 Curtis llus
tacc rescued a drowning sailor yes
terday afternoon at Waikiki, going
out from his home after the sinking
man and after diving and bring him
to the surface, towing him to shore
where Dr. W. G. Kogers brought
him to. The man, an electrician
from the Kentucky, had got out of
his depth in the channel in front of
the Moana,' Waikiki side of tho pier,
and, becoming exhausted, sank.
There were others swimmilig around
him, but none seemed either to have
noticed his danger or to know what
to do. Young Ilustace swam out to
the rescue, reaching the Sailor just
in the nick of time.
Dr. lingers worked over tho man
for an hour before he brought him
around to partial cpnk'iousnoss,

sailor had had.

How to Fumigate
Shippers of fresh pineapples from
Honolulu sent to the Coast one lot
of the fruit that was not thorough
ly fumigated. It was not rejected
but it led Mr. C. R. Holloway, ox
eoutive officer of tho Hawaiian
Hoard of Asrriculturo and Forestry,
to make tho following suggestions:
First -Fumigate the fruit before
Second Use double quantity ol
chemicals and water peseribtd by
the formula. This will not hurl the
Third Lengthen the fumigation
to an ho.ur and over.
Fourth Use none but 08 per
cent., perferably Merck's, potas
Fifth When manienio grass is
used for packing, fumigate the grass
separately in the same way as the
Sixth -He sure the fumigation

She was built by L. IV. Johnston
and Dean V. Johnston, two Seattle
boys, who are with her now, and
who, with Henry Hinkerv, arc the
joint owners of the craft. -They were
at the job a year, finishing her l;:st
February, from their own "jlefcign.
They fitted her out with their own
money, and sailed her under the
flag of tho Hiliot Bay Yacht Club of
Seattle. Coining down to San Pedro
they encountered a stoi;m oil' Cape
Mendocino, bu,t rode it out neatly.
With them on their little craft are
Ed. Pussell; steward; W. B. Jack,
boatswain; Walter A. Brunick, and
Capt. Thornst'on, besides Navigator
L. B. Johnston acts as captain.
And those boys designed a craft

The Lady Maud, built by Kyles
of San Diego, on her maiden trip,
which finished third, is another of
the interesting bunch of racers-. She
is hardly finished yet, as some of
the interior has not been painted:
On her came down John Kyle, jfr.
and Mrs. Wilbur Kyle, Miss May
Daniels, a cousin of AVilbur Kyle;
Captain Lew B. Harris,' sailing
master; Ed. Sehartz, Jas. Jessop,
George Lane, Herbert Bone, William
Simpson, and C. D. Ledger.
She has a green crew of volunte
ers. Her voyage was much in the
nature of a pleasure trip.
This morning, plans for entertain
ing the visitors were decided upon
by the Yacht Committee. On Thurs
day evening a poi supper is to be
held at the"Seaside Hotel, at which
the cups won by the Lurline and
the Gwendolyn II will be presented
by Governor Frear. On tho 27th a
dance is to bo held at the Moana in
honor of the yachtsmen. And on
Saturday, if the event can be ar
ranged, an auto trip around the Is
land is to be given.
Dr. Cofer May
A report is current today that
Dr. Cofer will soon be reappointed
president of the Board of Health.
Cofer resigned when his legal right
to hold the position was brought
in question, and President Robin
son took the ofliee. The latter
stated that he took the position as
ii temporary proposition, and it is
said that tho matter was submitted
to Washington. According to the
prosent report, it is now intended
to resume the old arrangement,
Washington authorities having ap
proved the idea of Dr. Cofer serv
ing "According to the same re
ports, the Kalihi receiving; station
is to bo taken over by the U.S.
Marine Hospital Service, somewhat
as Dr. Cofer is to take over tho
oxocutive work of the general terri
torial health department.
LOUISVILLH (Ky.), July 2.
Commenting upon the report from
New York last night that Alton B.
Parker lj'ad been selected to present
resolutions at the Denver Conven
tion upon ex-President Cleveland's
deiith, Colonel Henry Watterson
"The attempt to drag the dead
body of G rover Cleveland from its
new-made grave into the tumult of
a national convention will deceive
no one. An invasion of the grief of
the noble lady who weeps amid the
silence and the solitude of the
granite hills, a blow at party con-
coin, ii is uio ac.i oi a snameless
hypocrite. - Nor was ever a profes
sional ghoul inspired by a more
mercenary spirit, because the sole
aim and end of the, Murphy-Con-ners
crowd, aided by Judge Parker.
Is the perpetuation of the ascen
dancy of the ljelmont-l'yan com
bination to which Democracy owes
its last ignominous and well-deserved
"It seemed fitting that, having
made sacrifices for predatory wealth,
Judge Parker should have his re
compense in a rich law practice in
the city of New York. He has had
it; and with it and its enrichment
he should rest well content. That
he should emerge from this highly
paid obscurity to make trouble
through sheer malevolence were
pitiable, indeed; but that he should
appear, backed, by money of the
trust magnates and traction thieves,
appealing to Jefferson and Tilden,
the .dead body of Cleveland stretched
upon the dissecting table, is dis
graceful." World's Fair
Honolulu, July . 22. Yesterday
afternoon Governor Frear received
a cablegram from the Secretary of
thi! Treasury notifying him that the
appropriation of $25,000 for an ex
hibit by this Territory at the. Alaska-Yukon
exposition to be held in
Seattle next year, was available and
that it was time to appoint a com
misson from Hawaii. He replied
last night and this morning received
another cable appointing the follow
ing men from this Territory as the
commission which will handle the
matter locally: James F. Morgan,
chairman, W. F. ' Babbitt, A. W.
Carter, J. N. S. Williams and
August F. Knudsen. It will be
noticed that there are two members
from this island and one each from
Hawaii, Maui and Kauai.
A special agent, under a salary,
to handle the details of- the work
both here and in Seattle, will he
appointed and will spend this entire
time on the work. This appoint
ment has not yet been made. The
members of the commission will
