WASHINGTON, May 18. Hon. H.
L. Holsteln, speaker of the Hawaiian
Houso of Representatives, and Repub
Hcan National Committeeman for the
Territory, accompanied by Col. Sam
Parker, is In the city. Mr. Holsteln
will remain here for sovoral days and
then go to Chicago to attend tho meet
ing of the Republican National Com
mitteo which will arrange the details
for tho coming National Convention
and pass upon tho contests In the
various states between rival delega
tions. While here Messrs. Holsteln
and Parker will call upon the Presi
dent and place before him the facts
concerning the Republican conven
tion In Hawaii, which selected dele
gates to the National convention.
They contend that an Investigation
of tho facts and circumstances con
cerning the convention, and of the
controversy relative to Governor
Prear's desired reappointment, will
show that an .attempt has been made
on tho part of tho Governor's friends
to deceive the administration in their
efforts to show that his reappointment
is demanded by the citizens of tho
territory. It is doubtful If Messrs.
Holsteln and Parker call upon Secre
tary Fisher in reference to the mat
ter, as they believe that ho has pre
judged the case and that It would be
useless to submit facts to him.
There arrived in the Siberia this
morning a notable visitor of eight
years ago, In tho person of Nikola
Kaumanns, Imperial German Special
Commissioner for Agriculture to tlio
United States. He called on the old
friend of his former visit, Emll A.
Ucrndt, manager of W. W. Dlniond &
Co., Ltd., on arrival.
Mr. Kaumanns. is here on n mission
that will bo of great Interest to many
people here, it being to' study the
cotton, pineapple and other Industries
of the Islands, with a view of apply
ing the knowledge gained to tho de
velopment of tho Caroline Islands. He
expresses himself as being very much
amazed at the growth of the pineapple
industry In Hawaii. Mr. Kaumanns
will remain in these Islands about ten

also believes that the increase in

pace with the improved shipping. De
signs for the new Matson liner, which
have been accepted, Mr. Waldron
says, indicate a very fine vessel, with
passenger accommodations that will
excel anything at present on the Pa

according to Captain Matson, within
