M. P. Cropley, the recently imported
Association of Fish Story Prevariealors
by his wonderful account of Hying liMi

experience 011 the nrrlv.il of his vessel nt
Knilun last week. About 4 o'clock in tl e
morning, ns the sleniner Manna Loa wan
I ,i..fll, w t...l.tr ,t1,1. In .llililtiHlial,
clearly the shore lights, Caplain Siinerson
gave the order to "let go the anchor."
The starlio.iril anchor was dropped nud
length nfter length of the chnin spun out,
until no more chain remained in the
locker. The vessel was not in dcip
water nnd the master and crew were
dumbfounded to find the ship moving
with considerable velocity, although the
engines had been slopped when the order
"lo let go" was given. Gradually the
nose of the vessel Hwung awny from tl c
shore, nud it wns not until the steamer
began rapidly to attain ti high rale of
speed that the Captain rcnlired some
monster of the deeji had gotten hold oT
his mud hook and wascairylng his vessel
out to the high seas. lit. reversed his
engines, but still the ship continued to
move along by nil irresistible undeitow.
A happy thought came to the veteran
sailor, nnd lie immediately ordered thrown
overlionrd a carcass of mutton, which wns
in the ship's stores of provisions. No
sooner had the carcass been dropped
than the strong flavor of Honolulu mut
ton permeated the water, when the nni
mal or submarine demon relaxed ils hold
oil the ship's anchor nud tiinde for the
meal. In the meantime the Captain
hauled up his anchor and changing his
course put into Knilun two hours late.

R. T. Guaul, agent of the Matson Nav

of discrimination on island freights by
local steamship companies before the Ex
ecutive Council of the Hoard of Trade

on ten cases of pineapples shipped from
Mahukoua to Hilo was $5.00 per ton,
whereas the rate to San Francisco on the
same shipment was $ 3.50 per ton. He
declares such exorbitant rates are prohib
itory. On the other hand, the Wildir
S. S. Co. stale they nre willing to make
special rates on Urge shipments, nud will
make special concessions for island pro
ducts. The shipment ill question, it is
claimed, wns from Niulii, pirtlv by rail

to cover the railroad rate as well ns by
