Honolulu, Dec. 25. "Pearl Har
bor in its present condition is of no
value for a naval station" said Rear
Admiral Robley D. Evans yester
day. "Until the approaches to the
lochs arc straightened out no battle
ship or crtliser of the size now in
port can enter the harbor. It will
cost millions of dollars to make the
Admiral Evans visited Pearl
Harbor with a party of officers and
town people in the Iroquois on
Wednesday. Prior to that time he
was of the opinion that there would
be no difficulty in making use of
Pearl Harbor. He told an Adver
tiser reporter shortly after his ar
rival that the entire fleet could be
taken in, if he found it necessary,
but his visit to the place has
changed this opinion.
"As far as the approaches to the
lochs arc concerned," the Admiral
continued, it is not available to
the battleships and will not be un
til the government spends a good
many millions of dollars in straight
ening it out. It is so crooked now
that it wouldn't be practicable to
take even the cruisers in port now.
They are too long and could not
turn in there. It might be possi
ble to take the cruisers in with the
assistance of tugs, but even that is
"In its present condition Pearl
Harbor is of no value as a naval
station and it would hardly be
worth while to build machine shops
or docks there at this time. The
first thing to be dotie is to make
the channel available. I don't
know what the plans of the Depart
ment are in regard to the matter."
Admiral Terry was reported some
weeks ago as having said that Pearl
Harbor was not what the navy
wanted, but on inquiry he declined
to be interviewed.

elect, has declarcM that he could
not give a bond in that amount.
In the event of his failure to do so
then the Board of Supervisors will
have to elect an Assessor and Col
lector to take his place.
Section 59 of Chapter 13 of the
County Act, relating to bonds, says:
"Every county and district officer
shall, before entering upon the du
ties of his office, furnish a bond to
the Territory in the amount required
by law, conditioned to faithfully
perform all the duties of his office
as prescribed by law," etc. I ,
Section 66 says: "If at any time
any surety on any official bond l Ay A A ) Tr t s Tr-p.
shall die, remove from the Terri-j TyZ VJrVJLTv. JlvI-CTlVJTJlI'
tory, become insolvent, or trom any
other cause cease to possess the j
qualifications required in this title, j
the Board of Supervisors shall re- j
quire the officer giving such bond '
to give a new bond, with such sure
ties us are required in this title.
On failure to give such bond in!
thirty duys from demand such office ,
shall becr-.ue vacant." I
According to the first quotation
above the office is vacant until the ,
required bond is given, and how
any such vacancy is to be filled is
prescribed in paragraph 15, Section
22, Chapter 8, of "General Perma
nent Powers and duties of the
Board of Supervisors," thus:
"15 To fill by appointment all
vacancies that occur in any office
filled by the Board of Supervisors
and elective county or district offi
cers, except that of Supervisor, the
appointee to hold office for the un
expired term or until the next gen
eral election." I
Another important matter decided
was the choice of county office ac-1
commodation. On motion of Frank '
Harvey it was voted to take steps
to secure rooms for county offices in I
the Alexander Young building.
The meeting adjourned until 1 130 j
p. m. next Tuesday. At that meet-1
ing it is appointed that the various '
heads of departments will be asked
to submit a statement of their re-1
quirements for office assistance and '
All of the Supervisors were pres
ent, viz: Messrs. Gilmau presiding; ,
Robinson, Lucas, Hocking, Harvey, '
Mahoc and Kealoha. Mr. Lucas'
acted as interpreter, Supervisor ,
Mahoe being ignorant of English.

Peking, Dec. 23. Wu Ting
Fang, formerly Chinese Minister to
Washington, is urging the United
States' Legation to impress the
Dowager Empress with China's
peril aud its need of a strong army,
especially in view of the danger of
partition as an outcome of a war
between Russia and Japan. In
such a conflict China would, he
says, endeavor to be neutral, but
could not protect her territorial in
tegrity from either belligerent.
