has the plaiM for the new staAon in
Honolulu mid with the question of
the site out of the way will take
them up immediately. The plans,
as drawn, are by a Honolulu archi
tect and represent something like
what Mr. Sargent wants. They
will he gone over in detail and ad-
vertisement made for bids for con
structing the building. Mr. Sar
gent says he hopes to have the
building ready for occupation by
January i next.
Mr. Sargent says he observed the
conditions of labor in the islands
very carefully during his visit out
there but that he docs not intend to
make any official recommendations
on the subject to Congress or to his
superior officers "If any informa
tion is desired on the subject," said
Mr. Sargent today, "I shall be able
to tell my official superiors what I
saw with my own eyes and heard
with my own ears."
In the course of quite a conversa-
j Hon upon the subject Air. Sargent
indicated that he entertained views
about tlu-. labor problem in many
particulars friendly to the planta
tions. "I took particular pains,"
he declared, "to talk with the
laborers themselves as well as with
the employers of labor. The pre
vailing opinion seems to be that
Asiatics are needed to perform labor
in the fields, as the natives will not
perform that work and the white
men can not stand it. There was
very general complaint against the
Japanese, for they enter all trades
and generally crowd out other skill
ed labor by working for lower
wages." Mr. Sargent spoke of the
case of hack drivers in Honolulu,
he having had some conversation
with the Jehus who were complain
ing of the invasion of the Japs. He
also spoke of other instances.
"The pay of skilled laborers m
Hawaii seemed to be well up to the
average prices paid elsewhere,
he continued, "so fai as my obser

ment of special legislation for the
Hawaiian Islands, as to the supply
of labor, and commented upon the
habits of the Chinamen in coming
to stay only for a while, whereas
the Japanese come to make a per
manent home. The Immigration
Commissioner objected to the term
"cheap labor" as he thougnt that
incorrect, not being a believer in
cheap labor. "What the planta
tions of Hawaii need," he declared,
"is good labor at a price that will
enable the planters to make a fair
profit. A vast amount of capital is
invested in those plantations and
sugar is the chief industry of the
islands. The people should raise a
greater variety of products, for the
soil of the islands is wonderfully
fertile, but it nevertheless remains
a fact that sugar raising is now the

(Jouiiftcliniiii Aids In Saving
Honolulu, July 21. Yester
day the agents of the tug Charles
Couiiseliuati presented n salvage
bill of $40,000 for the help
given the steamer Claveriug while
it was on the reef. The Fearless is
yet to be heard from, but quite
likely $40,000 will be her figure too.
When the matter of salvage is
brought up in the Courts the ser
vices rendered by the US. S. Iro
quois will be considered and while
the United States laws prevent Cap
tain Rodman from accepting any
money, it being the duty of Naval
vessels to render assistance freely
whenever needed, the money which
would otherwise go to the Iroquois
will be deducted from the total
awards made to the tugs Fearless
and Counselnian. As the two latter
tugs belong to different companies
the claims will be put in separately
by each company. The Fearless is
the W. G. Irwin boat and the Conn-
selman belongs to Matsou.
Captain Barton expects to finish
discharging 200 tons cf coal at this
port tomorrow and if the vessel is
not found to be seriously damaged
will get away for San Francisco as
soon as possible.
A Board of Survey repiesenting
Lloyds began an inspection of the
hull of the Clavering yesterday to
Ascertain the extent of the damage
which the vessel received while on
the reef. T. II. Davies & Co., the
local agents of Lloyds appointed
J. A. Lyle of Lyle and Sorenson,
and J. Dyer of the Honolulu Iron
Works as the board. They began
work yesterday afternoon and ex
pect to finish it and submit their
report some time today. The report
will simply state the amount of
damage done to the vessel, and will
not endeavor to place the blame for
the accident, or touch upon the
question of the amount of salvage.
These matters will be left to other
boards or the courts to settle.
A diver was examining the hull
of tli. Claveriug yauterday after
noon. She has a wide bottom and
it will take some time to thoroughly
examine her, but the Captain re
ported yesterday that so far no
further damage had been discovered
beyond the fact that some paint had
been scratched off of her bottom,
and possibly some of the plates were

Honolulu, July 22. Advices re
ceived by the Ventura's mail from
New Zealand contain interviews
with James Mills, the general man
ager of the Union Steamship Com
pany, better known as the Canadian-Australian
line locally, that
his company would immediately
build three large steamships for the
Vancouver-Sydney run and also for
their New Zealand runs, and that
one of these vessels would be a tur
bine steamer and would likely be
placed in the Sydney-Brisbane-Fiji-Houoltilti
The turbine vessel is a new idea
in steamships. George J. Gould's
yacht, a turbine, recently made the
first trans-Atlantic trip for any tur
bine, and an English company has
recently constructed a number of
these vessels to run in the service
across the English Channel between
England and Europe. The first of
these vessels, the steamer "Queen,"
recently had her first trials which
were successful. The vessel has
three screw propellors. Great
speed at a smaller consumption of
fuel is said to be the chief advan
tage of the new style of steamer.

Irish Laud Bill passed the third
reading in Parliament today. The
House was the scene of jubilant
enthusiasm as the vote neared the
end, assuring the passage of an Act
which, it is firmly believed, will
settle the Irish laud question and
restore peace among the Irish sub
jects of the King.
