they occurred, owing to the censor
ship on such information imposed up
on the wireless companies.
As reported in tho Maul News last
week, the Japanese cruiser Hizen is
maintaining a patrol off tho port of
Honolulu just outside the three-mile
limit, presumably waiting until tho
little German cruiser Geier, under
going repairs to her machinery, ia
compelled by tho laws of neutrality
to leave tho harbor. While thus oc
cupied, tho little German trading
schooner Aeolus, from tho Marshall
Islands, seeking tho friendly shelter
of a neutral port, blundered right into
tho gray war vessel last Saturday
morning, and was made an easy cap

of definitely deciding upon tho site
for tho structuro, and working out
other problems in connection with
the undertaking. Tho committee held

Another Trader Expected.
It is reported that a third German
schooner, the Atlas, also from the
South Seas, started for Hawaii about
the time the Aeolus and Hermes did,

and headed for some other port.
Ahlers Gets to Hllo Safely.

which somo weeks ago reached Hono
lulu as a place of safety, raised her
anchors last Wednesday night and
slipped away to Hilo. It is reported
that sho had information of tho ar

is denied. At nil events, tho German
had a narrow escape, for tho Hizen
was very close when she left Hono
Tho German cruiser Gcicr, it is said,
has been permitted by the American
government to send to San Francisco
for certain materials needed in the
repair of her machinery. Rumors arc
current that other German cruisers
are expected to arrive before tho re
pairs arc completed, and the little
vessel compelled to leave the harbor
under tho neutrality laws. A Japa
nese collier has appeared during tho
week and icplcnished the fuel supply
of tho Hizen, and it is reported that
other Japanese war vessels are within
easy call, in caso there is "anything
doing." Tho Hizen is one of tho ves
sels captured from Russia during the
Russo-Japanese war, and was then
named tho Retvkan.

By Big Seas
Tailend Of Northwest Storm
Made Things Lively at Kaliu
lui Present Breakwater Stood
Some damage, and a great deal of
inconvenience was occasioned tho lat
ter part of last week by tho tremen
dous ocean swells which for a day or
two rendered most Maul ports unten
able for shipping. The Claudine man
aged to land her passengers at Ka
hului last Saturday morning, but was
unablo to lay up to tho wharf to put
freight ashore. Tho tankor Santa
Rita, which was unloading a cargo of
oil for tho ICahuluI Railroad, was ob
liged to take in her lines Friday morn
ing and leave the harbor with still
12,000 barrels of tho fluid In her tanks.
This was later discharged at Hono
lulu. The sea was apparently smooth, but
tho swell, which camo out of the
northwest, was tremendous when it
reached tho land. It raced directly
into Kahulul harbor, and at times in
undated tho beach road, strewing it
with gravel and drift wood, which had
to be cleared off several times. Tho
breakwater was submerged during tho
heaviest of tho onslaught, but stood
tho terrific pounding with compara
tively little damage. Tho supremo
need of the proposed west wing break
water was made unusually apparent
by- the storm.
The Claudine, after running around
to Lahalna, returned on Sunday morn
ing and managed to get her fre;gUt
ashoro Most of the Honolulu bound
passengers, went down by tho MiEa
hala from Lahalna Saturday evening.
Tho landing at Lahaiana was also
rough as a result of tho swell, but
boats managed to land their pasEcn
gers with some difficulty.
Engineer Pleased. (
Richard Qulnn, of tho U. S. Engin
eer's office, who is here on an inspec
tion trip, is greatly pleased with tho
way tho Kahulul breakwater came
through tho big storm of la3t Satur
day and Sunday.
"Practically no damage was done,"
declared Mr. Qulnn after he and Su
perintendent William Walsh of the
Kahulul Railroad had infido a careful
inspection of the bis structure. "A
fow stones out towards tho end of
the breakwater shifted, but three or
four days work will replace them.
Few persons realize that tho break
water stands Ilfty-flTQ foot high, or
just what such a hetgnt means. Tho
force of a sea that height moving
against it is something tremendous,
and I am extremely gratified at the
way tho structure stood this extreme
Another feature of Interest which
Mr. Qulnn pointed out, is that ?lnee
