Particulars of the bombardment
of San Carlos by Coast files add a
few details. At the time no rea
son for the bombardment was ap
parent as the, Panther began firing
as soon as the guns were brought
to bear, and the impression was
that this was part of the program
to reduce the fort before Mr. Bow
en reached Washington. Gen
Bello, who was in command of the
fort, had only two guns, but in the
first action landed on the Panther
The fort is twenty miles from
MaracaiLo at the entrance to the
gulf an,d the blockade station is
twenty miles further away. None
of the files tell of any allegation
that mails were delayed as the first
cause of the bombardment.

Thf 'Affair Cnuics UiiPiislness
New York, Jan. 19. A cable to
the Herald from Maracaibo, Vene
zuela, says: The German attack
on the San Carlos fort at Maracaibo
was premeditated. On the morn
ing of January 17th the German
gunboat Panther sent three boat
loads of men to rcconnoiterthc fort.
The Panther forced an entrance at
noon and attacked immediately.
The 'fort replied and fired 117 shots.
Several of them hit the mark, for
the Panther turned about and re
passed the bar at 6 o'clock in the
evening. She again took up her
position on the blockade, twenty
miles from the fort. During the
attack four Venezuelans were bad
ly wounded and ten slightly. The
fort was little damaged.
The reports of the German gun
boat at the time of the engagement
was trying to force the entrance of
the. lake in order to capture the
Vevczuelan gunboat Miranda,
which is in hiding there, are gene
rally believed here. The Venezue
lan Government has given out a
statement to this effect.
Maracaibo (Venezuela), Jan. 19.
There is no communication be
tween Maracaibo and the fort of
Sau Carlos, which was sh .'lied on
Saturday by the German cruiser
Panther and which returned the
fire, with the result that the war
ship retreated in the direction of
Berlin, Jan. 19. The Navy De
partment has not received any offi
cial advices regarding the bombard
ment of Fort San Carlos, at the en
trance to Lake Maracaibo, by the
German cruiser Panther on Satur
day, and is unable to either confirm
or deny the press dispatches. TheJ
officials say, however, assuming
that something in the way of a
bombardment took place, no orders
were sent from Berlin. Whatever
was done was the result of the ini
tiativeof thecommauder on the spot,
in whose discretion the conduct of
the blockade was left.

A Tourist (Joes Into Kcstncy
"Neither California nor 1;
is in it for a minute with Haw
said John Uweu, ot l.olonuto, a
wealthy mine owner whose home
is at Idaho Springs, on the slopes
of the Rockies. Mr. Owen, who is
largely interested iu the mines at
Cripple Creek and all the region
around about there, has traveled
extensively on the mainland of the
United States, and has found at last
the perfect resting place from the
cares of business which he has
sought for a long time.
"Why this place," he said, "is
absolutely perfection. There is
nothing like it anywhere, that I
have seen. I cannot understand
why more is not done to attract
tourist travel. There is every, pos
sible attraction, in climate and
scenery to draw travel. It is dif
ferent from anything on the main
Isnd, and charmingly different.
Even the s'tcamer trip is an added
attraction, for it rests a man and
the air of the sea is a life-giving air.
And then, when you get there,
when you find this soft, delightful
atmosphere and this wealth of tropi
cal trees and flowers and this pleas
ant, hospitable people iu a laud far
removed from the hurry and bustle
of business, when the busy man
finds that he can get away from his
cares so far that it will hardly pay
to call them back by wire and when
letters cannot reach him every two
or three hours, assuredly he can
find 110 spot in which he can rest
better, building himself up for a
renewal of the struggle.
v-ertatmy mere snotiiu ic a
great future for this place, if only
as a resort for tourists. The more
I see of it, the more I am charmed
with it, and I assure you it, is the
place for my money, hereafter. I
intend, moreover, to tell my friends
about it when I go home. The
trouble with Hawaii, it seems to
me, is that there is a lack of accu
rate information abroad concerning
its climate and its attractions as a
resort. The peculiar charm of the
place has not been made known.
When that is better understood, I
think a large share of the tourist
travel must come this way."

Editor Triiiunm: You ought

desirability of procuring the stat

will find that the sections of the

he is innocent or be incarcerated in

Cooper Succeeds Sloggctt on llourd .
Honolulu, Jan. 22. Dr. C. B.
Cooper was yesterday unanimously
elected by the Board of Health to
succeed President Sloggett. The
choice was a matter of considerable
surprise ds it was supposed that the
mantle would fall upon the shoul
ders of Dr. Moore. Just prior to
tne meeting, However, tue com
bined efforts of the remaining mem
bers of the Board compelled Dr.
Cooper to consider his declination
and after much argument he agreed
to accept. At the opening of the
meeting K. A. Mott-Smith took the
chair, and Dr. Moore placed the
name of Dr. Cooper in nomination.
It was immediately seconded by .
Mr. Robertson and the vote was by
Upon taking his office Dr. Cooper
said that he accepted the position
only under pressure and that tak
ing only selfish reasons into con
sideration he could not take it.
"The last Board had a great
crisis to face for two years, and
while I do not wish to throw bou
quets at ourselves, I think we can
congratulate ourselves that
commerce has not
and the internal welfare of the
country has not been threatened.
"It will be my policy to continue
on the same lines laid out by my
predecessor and I thank you for the
confidence reposed in me. I wished
to remain only a member of the
Board and would have liked to see
Dr. Moore accept the honor. It
will be no easy matter to make the
record of my predecessor."
Attorney General Dole then arose
and stated that as it would probably
be his last meeting, he wished to
express his appreciation, of the
cordial good will and fellowship
which had always existed between
He referred to the criticism in

ferred also to causes of a personal
