TIE STAffi. THE PISTOL
POCKET. AND THE DISCLAIMER
GEORGE A. DAVIS TRIED HIS TERRIFIC STARE ON WAL
TER G. SMITH LAST NIGHT ON A STREET CAR AND
(WHEN CALLED DOWN MADE HIS FAVORITE PISTOL
The London office of the cable company has reported a successful
attempt to send messages all the way from London to Melbourne, with
out a smgle stop for repetition of transmission from one line to another.
This is the longest distance a message was ever sent without being re
peated. It is further than from Honolulu tq London wcr the lines as
they exist now, and the success means that if arrangements shpuld be
made, Honolulu and European ports might exchange messages without
any intermediate operators repeating them, the signals being sent
directly over wires connected all the distance.
The success of such a test as that between London and Melbourne
was made possible bv the invention of a relay systfem, says Cable Engi
neer Hibberdine, who is to have charge of the cable repair steamer Sco
tia's operations" here. The relays are instruments which automatically
receive the cable signals and increase them as they; send them on. Two
of them were used" in the London-Melbourne experiment. The message
went from London to Cornwall, to Madeira, St. Helena, Ascension,
Capetown, Cocos Island, Adelaide, Melbourne, and was not handled by
a single operator between the two extreme ends of the line.
The repair ship Scotia is expected here next month, but with the line
working as well as it works now there will be little for it to do. In the
event of a break, however, in some of the depths between here and San
Francisco, the interruption might be for some time, for it is not always
easy to find the cable at such a depth. Engineer Hibberdine has had a
lot of experience all over the world in cable repairing and has witnessed
some extraordinary incidents ,in connection with the deep sea lines. "In
1895, between Bombay and Suez we dragged for a month without find
ing a broken cable," said the engineer. "It was in 2800 fathoms and
every day we grappled back and forth ten miles, over the region where
the line was paid, without getting a trace of it. It had sunk deep in the
ooze at the ocean bed. We returned for coal and started out again and
finally found the line and repaired it. It took two and a half months'
work, at a cost of $500 a day, to repair the break.
"A whale was responsible for one of the breaks in a Suez cable and
when We lifted the line we found the monster wrapped up in it. It had
simply held him down and drowned him. .In some strange manner he
had got tangled up in the line and his struggles had wound it round
and round until he' could not get loose and he was held under water
until he died. His struggles broke the cable. We found the line and
were much puzzled at the extraordinary weight in lifting it. It finally
came to the surface with the huge black mass all tangled up in it and
giving out a fearful odor. This was in only 300 fathoms of water. On
another occasion we found several miles of excellent sponges growing
on the line. ' :
"There are some greatjlepths in the cable-on both sides-of us here,
but it is not likely that weshall have to lp; work in any deeper watc'r
than it has'already been done in other oceans'.''

George A. Davis' Terrific Stare was in action again last night, but it
seemed to have the wrong effect on the intended victim. The result
was a scene between Davis and. Editor Walter G: Smith, on a Rapid
Transit car, and Davis after making the usual gunplay, narrowly escap
ed having to answer for it.
Governor and Mrs. Dole were on the car when the incident occurred,
and there w"erc a number of other, passengers. Davis at first sat at the
other end from the editor, but when he saw the governor and hfs wife
he moved close to bmith and engaged Mr. and Mrs. Dole in conversa
tion for a few moments. The object seemed to be to show Smith that
he was still, on speaking terms with the governor. With this accom
nlished. Davis swelled up and brought the Stare into action.
The well known hypnotic gaze has not lost anything by a vacation
in San Francisco. Davis used it on smith with all the did familiar va
nations. There was the stare long and direct, the stare hasty, the over
shoulder stare and the wild glare that is supposed to fix the whole busi
ness. Smith sat quietly under the bombardment of brilliant eye-balls
until Davis, leaned close over and did some even more incisive staring.
"That's enough of that," said the editor suddenly, rising in his seat
as if to throw the other man off the-car.
Davis rose and a hand went to His pistol pocket. There was a gen
cral alarm in the car and Mrs. Dole appeared to be much frightened, but
the governor sat unmoved, paying-, no attention, perhaps because he
knows Davis and perhaps because ft was proper to preserve guberna
Smith warned Davis against the pistol movement, remarking that
he would kill him then and there it he didn t take care what he did
Davis protested that he had no pistol in his pocket.
The incident closed without further ado, Davis retiring with the Ter
rific Stare locked up for future use.

Has Manna Loa
Broken Out Again?
CAPTAIN MOSHER OF STEAMER IWALANI REPORTS
THAT HE SAW THREE DISTINCT FLASHES OF FIRE.
LAST NIGHT FROM DIRECTION OF MAUNA LOA
NO REPORTS OF VOLCANIC OUTBREAKS.
Has Mauna Loa again flashed into fiery activity? Some very strong
circumstances going to prove that such is the case, are reported. Cap
tain Moshcr and other officers of the steamer Iwalani which arrived
early this morning from Kauai ports, saw evidence of fire from the .vol
cano of Mauna Loa last night. Further corroboration of the report is
being awaited in Honolulu.
According to the statements of Captain Moshcr, the Iwalani was
coming from Kauai last night to Honolulu. When about 45 or 50 miles
this side of Nawiliwili, he saw at ten' minutes past 10 o'clock, a sudden.
flash in the skies directly ahead. The flash mounted high in the hcavr
ens, and the, light lasted about five to1 eight minutes. Ten minutes later
a second flash df light was1 seen from the same sppt, and ten minutes
after a third flash was seen. The. duration of all the flashes was from
five to eight minutes.
Captain Moshcr and his officers were naturally surprised to see such.
a brilliant display. After the first flash, it was thought that the light
must have come from a cane fire on Uahu. I he second flash indicated,
otherwise. Captain Mosher got his chart and took' his bearings.

even some other opening in the big mountain. Certainly, there was
some extensive display 01 nrc ana uie nre must nave Deen driven ay
some volcanic force, for it shot many feet into the heavens. It occurred:
at regular intervals. The last display lasted longer than the others and
was brighter. The reflection was brighter high up in the heavens than,
nearer the earth. .
When Captain Mosher and the officers and crew who saw the
strange sights arrived in Honolulu they expected to hear news df an.
outbreak of Mauna Loa. They were greatly surprised when they
learned that no news of the fire had been received in this place.
If there has been another outbreak of Mauna Loa it is not in the
least surprising. Purser Conkhng of the steamer Mauna Loa reported
last week that smoke was so dense about Punaluu and that section of
Hawaii, that the island and mountain could not be seen from the steam
er. This fact and the reports made by returning visitors to the Volcano,
of evidences of increased activity, indicate that Madame Pele is getting
busy again and that there is likely at any .time; to be another outbreak
from Kilauea or else at some other place on the big mountain.

PROPERTY OF M. G. SILVA HELD BY JUDGE ROBINSON
' THROUGH A RECEIVER, WANTED BY JUDGE ESTEE'S
TRUSTEE IN BANKRUPTCY POSSIBLE CONFLICT OF
JUDICIAL ORDERS IN THE CASE.
A question of conflicting jurisdictions between the federal and first
circuit courts was argued at length this morning in Judge Robinson's
court, in the matter of the M. G. Silva divorce case. Silva's affairs arc
much involved in both courts and Judge Robinson was, asked to let go,
in order to gjye Estee's court full control.
W. W. Thayer appeared in support of a motion to set aside the order
appointing a receiver for Silva, and E. A. .Dou.th.itt had a motion for an
order directing the receiver to pay over the Silva funds in his possession
to Mrs. Silva. to aoplv on her alimony account. Silva is in course of
bankruptcy in Estee's court and 'Thayer contended that the trustee in
bankruptcy should take over all the property of Silva's, including that
Which is held by the circuit court through the receiver. "Judge Estee
has held in two cases," said Thayer, "the Lederer bankruptcy case and
a Chinese case, that the receiver in' bankruptcy takes all the property of
the bankrupt, and that the bankruptcy proceedmg interposes to bring
about a stay of other civil proceedings involving the bankrupt's prop
erty." DJmthitt quoted authorities to the effect that whichever court took
jurisdiction of property first retained it. He said that where the twtii
courts had parallel jurisdiction the rule was that neither court would in
terfere in any way with,the other. Judge Robinson intimated that this
was his view of the case, but did not give a decision. Both sides will
The decision involves the question of whether Mrs. Silva will be able
to collect her alimony in preference to other creditors of bilva. blie was
awarded heavy alimony but it accumulated for months, until a thousand
dollars was due. and then Tudge Robinson granted a motion to place
Silva's affairs under a receiver, ordering the receiver from time to time
to turn over funds collected to Mrs. Silva. The bankruptcy proceed
ings were begun later a'nd the courts have now to decide hi some way,
whether the property which the receiver holds is subject to the proceed
mgs in ustee s court
There is an intcrestimr possibility of conflict between federal and ter
ritorial courts in the case. It is claimed that Estee has held that the
trustee in bankruptcv takes all property from the receiver and Estee
may order Will E. Fisher, as receiver, to turn over the property to the
trustee in bnnkrnntcv. On the other. hand. Tudsrc Robinson may hold
that the receivership cannot be disturbed, in which event the question of
which court he should obey would have to be determined on appeal.
