THE CONDITIONS IN CHINA LOOKING SERIOUS
Ship Subsidy Bill Passed Senate.
London, Feb. 12. England has radde a demand upon the Chinese
government for compensation to the missionaries for the destruction
of their property by Chinese mobs nt Changpu. The punishment of the
perpetrators of the outrage is also demanded.
New York, Feb. 15. Missionaries throughout China havfc been
warned to keep in touch with the treaty ports.
General Manager Schwerin, of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company,
says that he regards the situation in China as very serious.
General Manager Schwerin, of course, is kept in touch with Chinese
affairs by the officers of the Pacific Mal liners, ' who report directly to
him nt his San Francisco offices. All the indications, indeed, continue
to point to approaching trouble in. China. And, in the event of serious
complications, the missionaries will be the first to feel the wrath of the
aroused Chinese. It would seem, indeed, that the powers having inter
ests in Chiua'caunot too speedily strengthen the forces they have avail
able to cope with a grave situation.,
Consul General Saito to Return.
Honolulu, Feb. 15. Consul General Miki Saito, the Japanese gov
ernment's representative in the Hawaiian Islands, who was recently
called to Tokio, will return to Honolulu In March or April.
The Federal Grand Jury.
Honolulu, Feb. 14. The Federal Grand Jury will, with the assist
ance of United States District Attorney Breckons, probably break all
local records for speedy work. It has now been in session only three
days, aud it is probable that all its work will be finished this afternoon,
aud that its report, accompanied by the indictments found, will be given
to Judge Dole tomorrow. The Grand Jury will, however, not be dis
charged for a week or so, in order that it may be in readiness should
any trouble arise over any of the indictments.
Today the inquisition was busy maiuly with the case of Wnikoloa, the
Haleiwa postmaster, who is charged ivjth embezzlement of postoffice
funds. A number of Hawaiian, Chinese and Japanese witnesses, and
also Postoffice Inspector Hare, were examined in regard to, this matter.
The case of the two marines who wre arrested on board the trans
port Sherman on a charge of countdffeiting, will probably be taken up
this afternoon. Altogether this Grand Jury has handled about ten cases.
Governor Carter's Vacation.
Honolulu, Feb. 13. It was stated this forenoon that Governor Carter,
accompanied by Mrs. Carter, would in all probability leave Honolulu
on the Manchuria for San Francisco'-jrnyRhorsday and that they would
go to Southern California, where Mrs. Carter's father, Mr. Strong of
Rochester, N. Y., is wintering.
The Governor and Mrs. Carter do not want to get too far away from
Hawaii, where their children will remain during the Governor's recup
eration trip. This plan is not absolutely arranged, but is considered the
best of the various trips discussed. Other plans which have been dis
cussed are a journey to New Zealand or the Orient.
Arrivals of First Molokans.
Houolulu, Feb. 13. The steamship China, left San Francisco today,
bringing with her, as is supposed, the first lot of Molokans from South
ern California to settle on Kauai. They will arrive here next Monday
morning if the steamer makes schedule time, and arrangements are be
ing made here to look after them and send them to Kauai at once. They
will probably leave Honolulu for Kauai on the same day they arrive
here, and their terms of labor will startiat once.
The Molokans come prepared to build their own houses and lay out
and settle their own village somewhere on the lands which the Makee
Sugar Company is to surrender to them. There are buildings on the
ground now, which they will take as temporary quarters. There are
quarters which were built for Portuguese and others. The Molokans
will settle in these, and work for the plantation. It is understood they
are to receive a cash advance for their immediate needs.
The selection of a site for their village is to be left to the settlers. The
Makee Sugar Company has agreed to surrender leases to the irtuds they
are to occupy and as fast as this is done, Land Commissioner Pratt will
be prepared to transfer the land to the Molokans. The location of their
homes, the distribution of sites, etc., will be left to the Molokans. It
will probably be some time before all these preliminaries are straight
ened out and the construction of new homes for the Molokans is begun.
In the meantime, it is expected that the Molokans on the Chtna will be
reinforced by a considerable number more, and a year will probably see
quite a village of homesteaders settled somewhere on the five thousand
acres of land to which the Makee Sugar Company is preparing to sur
render its leases. Star.
Hepburn Speaks For Hawaii.
Washington, Feb. 10. The importance of Hawaii as a strategic point
was emphazised today in a speech delivered by Congressman Hepburn
of Iowa before the House Committee on Territories favoring a refund to
the Territory of 75 per cent, of the Federal revenues collected there. Mr.
Hepburn declared that Hawaii was the most valuable acquisition made
by the United States since the Louisiana purchase.
New Line of Freight Steamers.
Vancouver, B. C, Feb. 3. R. A. Alley has returned to Seattle from
Ottawa where he arranged for steamship service betweeu this port and
Interviewed at Seattle Mr. Alley said that all English capital is be
hind the enterprise which appears to be only in its infancy.
"The company I am to manage has been awaiting the decision of the
Canadian and New Zealand governments in regard to a subsidy which
we applied for some few months back," said Mr. Alley. "They have
at last decided to grant it and we will immediately frame n schedule of
sailing dates for two steamers the Budentaur and Africander of 5600 and
4250 tons net and with a speed of nj4 and 104 knots respectively.
They will have no regular passenger accommodations, both being the
tramp type, with as much cargo space as possible.
"After leaving Vancouver, our first port of call will be Honolulu, T.
H., on the route to New Zealand and Australian ports.
"Within a period of six months we will be putting two more steamers
011 this run and will continue to put others on as fast as conditions

The bill increases the subvention of the Sprcckcls line of steamers,
and provides for the establishment of four new lines in the Pacific ocean.
Two of these are to run to Japan and China, and one to the Philippines
direct by way of Honolulu. The fourth line is to run to South Americati
If the further progress of the measure is favorable, it will mean a
great deal to the commerce of the Pacific, the "ocean of the future." In
the first place, it will put the Oceanic ou its feet. The Philippine line,
presumably, is to run from San Francisco, and as it is to make Honolulu
a port of call will play an important part in the future of this port. It is
entirely possible, also, that the two new lines to China aud japan will
bring their steamers here. The fourth line subsidized to South Ameri
can ports, presumably will origiuate in San Francisco.
To Vote On Municipal Ownership.
Chicago, Feb. 15. The City Council has voted to submit to the peo
ple the question of voting $75,000,000 in bonds to purchase the street
railways of the city.
At last Mayor Dunne, who was elected upon the platform of munici
pal pwncrship of 'the street railways, seems to have arrived at the point
where he has induced the Council to submit a definite proposition to Un
people. The sentiment of Chicago has been very strongly for municipal
ownership, and there is every probability that the bonds will be voted..
