Honolulu, Aug. 6. Captain U.
S. G. White of the United States
Naval Station, is ready with a large
map of the station land at Pearl
Harbor which will in all probability
' be used by the Hoard to be ap
pointed by the Secretary of the
Navy for the purpose of taking up
the matter ol the general outline
t plan of development. Upon this
I map is nil the conceivable data that
will be of use to the board in its
1 ' deliberations. A Bulletin reporter
called on Captain While at the
Naval Station this forenoon and
from him learned the sites of the
1 various structures it is proposed to
erect, as well ns many other points
of interest in connection with the
j proposed station.
After passing in from the railway
on the navy yard side at Ktmloa
Navy will have full ...id absolute
control of the channel.

Ve,also take particular pains with Chil
there is a stretch of land the eleva
tion of which is between 26J4 to 27
leet above low water mark, it ts
between fifteen and sixteen hundred
feet in length, is approximately
eight acres in extent and runs from
east to west. This has been chosen
as the proposed site for the quarters
of the officers of the yards. It is a
fine location which overlooks the
southeastern loch and Kuahua
Island and will lend itself to devel
opment as no other place within
the boundaries of the navy laud.
The driveway already running'
through the land is just to the
north and it is proposed to have
the main driveway directly in front
of the quarters.
To the westward and on a pro
longation of the line of the officers'
quarters is the site selected for the
commandant's office. This is on
the eastern bank of the large bight
which is covered with water at
high tide. The idea regarding this
bight is to build a low retaining
wall across at about a third of the
distance in, dredge out the portion
contained and use it as a fitting out
basin for repairs, etc., after vessels
have been on the dry dock.
To the westward of the bight is a
peninsula about 800 feet wide and
1500 feet long which extends out
to the northward and this place has
been chosen by the Naval Station
engineer for the-construction and !
steam engineering machine shops
and foundries where the ship re
pairs will be made.
Westward of this peninsula is
another bight which is a fine loca
tion for the dry docks. The prop
osition is to construct two of these,
the larger one to be 750 feet and
the smaller 550 feet. The width of
the gateway will be such as to per
mit of the entrance of vessels of 90
South ot the dry docks and the
peninsula is the site upon which it
is proposed to locate the storehouses,
and westward of the dry docks and
peninsula is the site for the marine
barracks and any additional store
houses that may be required. To
the east will be a line of store
houses, and at the head of the first
bight, where the fitting out basin
will be, it is proposed to erect the
yards and docks, machine shops
and electric plant.
The extreme western end of the
Navy laud, known as Kanapuaa
Point, will be erected the coaling
plant, which it is proposed shall be
made up of the most improved coal
storehouses and -mechanical means
of handling coal. The capacity
will be not less than 60,000 tons.
On Kuahua Island, which com
prises about fifty acres, it is pro
posed to locate the entire ordnance
plant, consisting of magazines,
storehouses and such machine shops
as are required for ordnance pur
poses. To the right of the railway and
on the crest of the hill at the east
ern extremity of the Navy land is
the place all of the different of the
station. The areas of the land
taken over from the Bishop Estate
is 693 1- acres and the total area,
papers which will result
in giving us a clear title to the laud
at Pearl Harbor are now in Wash
ington nud should be here soon.
As soon as the laud matter is settled
for good, the Secretary of the Nnvy
will very probably appoint a board
to take up the question of the gen
eral outline plan for development.
This is the regular course whenever
there is a new station to be estab
lished. The maps and plans are
all ready for the board and will be
sent on .as soon as they arc required.
The space for the various depart
ments will then be allotted and the
work to be done first will be decided
"In my opinion, the first thing
to be started will be the dry docks,
and Congress at its next regular
session will undoubtedly appropriate
the necessary money so that we can
begin work here by July of next
year. I shall urge that two dry
docks be built and if my suggestion
is followed, there will be about
three and a quarter millions set
aside for this purpose alone. Offi
cc'rs' quarters will undoubtedly be
erected simultaneously with the
docks. I think Congress will set
aside about $4,000,000 for the in
auguration of the work.
"Pearl Harbor is undoubtedly the
prettiest site owned by the Navy
Department of the United States.
It is a natural navy yard site and a
better place for the purpose could
not be imagined.
"With regard to fortifications ut
Pearl Harbor, you of course know
what this work is under the War
Department and that our fortifica
tions come directly under the De
partment of California.
"The Islands constitute the key
to the whole of the Pacific Coast
and with the proper fortifications
and fleet here, no enemy's fleet
would dare go in and make an at
tack at any port. In order to pro
tect ourselves, we must have a
large fleet of ships here, and this of
course means that we must keep an
enormous amount of supplies which
in turn must be protected by ex
"My plan for the Pearl Harbor
defenses is as follows: Fortify both
sides of the mouth of the harbor
with batteries of 12 or 13-inch and
8-inch guns; fortify the south end
of the Waipio peninsula with 10-
inch guns and Aim a Point (half
way between the mouth of this
harbor and the mouth of Pearl Har
bor) with 12-inch guns. This bat
tery at Ahua Point would protect
both harbors and prevent ships of
the enemy from getting close enough
iu to throw a shell into our navy
yard. It would also prevent land
ing parties from getting into Kalihi
Returning to the matter of the
improvements at Pearl Harbor,
Captain White stated that the build
ing of the docks would take about
three years and that when all the
improvements had been completed,
the United States Government
would have spent something like
With reference to the power to
be used in the Navy Yards, it is
the idea of Captain White that all
the machinery and everything else
requiring power shall be run by
electricity supplied from one central
station. Even pumping out the
dry docks will be done by electricity
and large motors will be necessary,
The pumps will have to be of suffi
cient capacity to take out 200,000
gallons a minute, since the capacity
of the docks will be 18,000,000 gal
lons. The estimate for the con
struction of the electric plant is

Honolulu, August 7. The oil
steamer Rosecraus arrived off port
from San Francisco last night.
She entered the harbor early this
morning and is docked at the rail
road wharf, where she is discharg
ing her cargo of 23,000 barrels
crude oil. The Rosecrans was for
merly a U. S. A. transport and as
such visited this port several times.
She was converted to an oil-carrier
and took oil up North. On June
24, she had her bow punctured by
floating ice in the Uehring Sea.
Her bow was repaired iu San Fran
cisco before the Rosecrans started
on her trip to this port. The Rose
crans is expected to arrive back at
San Francisco iu time to take
another cargo of oil north before
the close of the season.
