Terry to Honolulu.
Captain White, acting coniman
ant of the Naval Station, was ad
vised by cable today of the appoint
ment of Rear Admiral Silas W.
Terry to be commandant at the
Honolulu Naval Station. No de
tails as to the time of the new com
mandant taking command here
The appointment of Admiral
Terry to this port is regarded as
very significant. He is at present
the commandant of the Washington
Navy Yard. Recently he was
ordered detached from that position,
said detachment to take effect July 1.
Admiral Terry's appointment to
this station is made, it is thought,
in connection with the future plans
of the department regarding the
construction of the navy yard at
Pearl Harbor. He has been close
to the head officials of the depart
ment in Washington and is familiar
with their ideas and intentions
regarding the establishment of the
naval base in the Hawaiian Islands.
His transfer to the Honolulu station
has unquestionably been dictated
1 by the desire of the department to
have some one intimately acquaint
ed with its wishes, in charge of the
extensive work that is to be under
taken shortly at Pearl Harbor.
Inasmuch as Admiral Terry's
detachment dates from July 1 it is
highly probable that he will arrive
I iu Honolulu the latter part of next
I month to take command.

for Ncn Vcxirl. 1
Wilder's Steamship Company '
will the first of next year make a
notable addition to its fleet. Presi-1
dent Charles I,. Wight, on his re
cent visit to the Coast, placed nn '
order with the Union Iron Works!
of San Francisco for the construe-'
tion of a new steel steamship. ,
This vessel is to be built upon
the model of Wilder's steamer Kai
ulani, these being the dimensions: J
Length 134 feet, beam thirty leet,
depth of hold twelve feet six inches. 1
She will have a carrying 'capacity '
of something more than 400 tons j
dead weight, net. Her contract
speed will be 9 knots when the
vessel is half loaded at sea. j
The new steamer is designed I
especially 'for the Molokai route,
with passenger accommodations to
give perfect satisfaction from a sani
tary point of view. There will be
five staterooms for first-class pas
Hoisting gear will be installed
like that in the rest of the Wilder
fleet, which, it is noteworthy, has
been copied in the great freight
boats of the Hawaiian-American
Steamship Co. This type of gear
was designed by President Wight
and Captain Johnson, superintend
ing engineer of the company..
The steamer will be ready in
1904. Her name will be selected
in the meantime. The cost of the
vessel is $90,000.
Chinese Deposits Alright.
Honolulu, June 20. Enough
Chinese fund depositors have pre
sented their claims to Secretary
Carter now to make it possible to
judge whether the accounts were
straight, and there are no indica
tions aside from the $800 shortage
that matters were not kept right by
Wray Taylor, who had the fund in
charge. The opportunities for
wrongful disbursement of the fund
were quite good and when Taylor's
$800 shortage was repotted the pre
diction was made that an examina
tion of the fund and the accpunts
connected with it would disclose
The Chinese, however, have been
coming in by hundreds, and in only
a couple of cases, explainable by
natural errors, or frauds on the
part of the Chinese, has it been
found that the money owned by
Chinese has been drawn by others
than those entitled to the coin.
"Aside from the shortage at first
found, after the departure of Taylor,
there are no signs of irregularities,"
said Secretary Carter.
There are no more crowds about
the Secretary's office now, but the
number of claimants represented is
as large as ever. The mails from
other islands bring passbooks by
the hundreds, with assignments to
other parties for collection here.
There are enough books and ap
plications on file now to keep the
office busy till Friday next if no
more come in.
