JAS. M. CAMERON,
with Admiral (then Captain) I.eary
as the supreme power, one of his
assistants, Lieutenant W. K.
vSafTord, obtained one of the very
good dwelling-houses on the island
by purchase from the owner and im
proved it to such an extet t that it
became practically the most desir
able residence there.
Governor Leary finally concluded
that Lieutenant Saflbid's house
was needed by the Government as
an executive mansion, and opened
negotiations for its purchase. The
price asked, however, the Govenor
thought excessive, and when he and
Lieutenant Saflbrd could not agree
Govenor Leary finally condemned
the premises for Government pur
poses and took possession.
Lieutenant Saflbrd made a vigor
ous protest against this summary
proceeding, and appealed to Wash
ington for redress, financial and
otherwise. Kvcr since then the case
has been under consideration, and
finally became .so complicated that
it was referred to the Attorney
General for an opinion on the legal
The Attorney General has now
sustained the action of Governor
Leary as being legal under the pe1
culiar circumstances oi the case.
In his opinion the Attorney-General
holds that the Constitution has
not been extended to Guam by Con
gressional enactment, and that the
sole power of government of the
island has been necessarily and prop
erly committed by the President to
the Naval Governor, and that in ap
propriating the property of Saflbrd
he was entirely within hisauthority
in the exercise of the right of emi
nent domain, and that the United
States Government has a clear and
valid title to the property in dis
pute. He holds that the Treasury
can lawfully allow the owner the
price paid for the property by order
of the Govenor of the island. Ad
miral Leary has died and Lieuten
ant Saflbrd has resigned from the
Navy to accept a position in the

Washington, D. C, Sept. 21.
Dispatches ftom Honolulu, printed
here this morning, that the agent
of the Federation of Labor on an
inspection tour of Hawaii had dis
covered many Japanese coming into
the Territory by aid of their govern
ment or other aid attracted wide, at
tention in administration circles.
But the matter seems not to have
taken the Department ol Commerce
by surprise. Immigration Commis
sioner V. I Sargent is absent, hav
ing recently gone to Montreal,
where he has business in connection
with the smuggling of Chinese. It is
learned here, however, that Mr.
Sargeant made an investigation of
that topic when he was in Hawaii a
few months ago. He is said to have
prepared a report on that and other
labor topics in the territory of the
mid-Pacific, which he has with
him now and which he will proba
bly talk over with President Roose
velt before coming back to Wash
ington next Thursday.
In the absence of so many offi
cials who have anything to do with
the special subject, it is, impossible
to make any definite statement as
to what will be done. Secretary
Cortelyott of the Department of
Commerce and Labor is away on
his vacation and will not be back
for a week yet. It was said at the
Department today that Commission
er Sargeant also had looked very
carefully into the complaints of The
Porto Ricans in Hawaii and that
probably he will have something to
say about them in his report to Pres

Captain Coath tells the following I UKNEH CO Ltd
Storv of his extraordinary ex-
perience in the British ship Ornis-
ary I ucsday ol last week oil the I
coast of West Hawaii.
"At eight o'clock Monday even
ing as my vessel was off the coast
ot Hawaii we had a most unique
experience. The sea gradually he-
came very much disturhed and
whirling currents set 111. They
whirled around first to one side and
then to another, and raced in all
quarters of the compass like mael
stroms. Sometimes such a whirl
pool would suddenly reverse and
start racing back in just the opposite I
direction to that in which it had
previously been running.
"llie waves at times oroke over
the vessel, which was rendered abso
lutely unmanageable. She would .
not answer her wheel and could not j
make any headway whatever in the
tumultuous currents. She remained j
almost stationary and acted exactly '
as if she were anchored.

which I judged must have been
