The Colonel question 19 still agi
tating theC'nblnet. On behalf of
the tiresent Incumbent. Col. V. V.
Ashford, It Is being contended by
the minority of the ilig Four that
the ofllce will not be vacant until
next February, that being the first

missioning of the present Colonel.
There h likely to be an invcatlgn
tlon in the Courts Into the appoint
ment of Mr. C. L. Carter a9 a tnetn
ticr of the tax appeal commission on
Hawaii. It is alleged that besides
his family connection with stock
holders of C. Hrcwer& Co.'s planta
tions, Mr. Carter is himself a stock
holder and therefore to that extent
a party to some of the appeal cases
that he adjudicated. If this is the
case it is high lime there was an in-
Referring to a report that the
members of two of the election
hoards in ICona had been arrested
for not complying with the law,
the lltlo Reeoid says if they
huve intentionally disobeyed the law
it is "glad to have the thing brought
out", but to the average mind our
present election law may be said to
he very intricate." ThU is the
opinion of a lawyer who helped to
make the law as a legislator. To
the average l.ty iniiicl the statute is
an intermixed integration of inex
The development of steam com
merce in the Pacific is only in its
youth not to say infancy. One if
not two new American lines to the
Orient, are projected. With the
twilight-of Western civilization in
Japan, and symptoms of its dawn
even in China, there must be ex
pected a stupendous development of
commerce between F.nst and West
in the North Pacific. Within the
years left to some now living the
steamship lines crossing this ocean
may approach in numbers those
whose keels now furrow scoies of
unites across the North Atlautic.
(lobc-trottcra are promised a new
diversion by the Canadian Pacific
Railway Co. An article in the Mont
real Witness telegraphed to the San
Frnuctaco papers says that corpora
tion is arranging to have a line of
three or four steamers to go straight
i.otind the world. They will start
from Montreal, Halifax and New
York in the fall, so as to avoid the
summer heat in India and the Sue,
canal route. They will run to Lon
don, Gibraltar, Malta. Suez, Po
uting, Colombo, Calcutta, Hong
kong, Yokohama ami Vancouver,
and the passengers will be on the
same steamer throughout the voyage.
The Hilo Record commends a de
cision of the Police Court at that
place, whereby three men were freed
from their labor contracts, on ac
count of the failure of the master to
settle with them. Our contract labor
law is probably to tome extent a ne
cessary evil, but it bhould be
amended so that no man could be
bound to service, without his mailer
being penally bound to pay his wa
ges at regular intervals. As the
Record says, "it is not often that
laborers are found who can stand up
for their rights in the matter."
Therefoie the' laws hhould provide
for protection to the laborer in his
rights without Involving him in the
ibk of losing heavy legal expenses.
A few days ago a well dressed in
dividual enquired of the housekeeper
at the Hawaiian Hotel whether
"Juke was in," looking in at the
door of the room of a gentleman
who had jiiht gone out for a drive.
Upon finding that the coast was
clear he remaiked to the housekeeper
that "Jake" was his brother and
that as "Jake" was in the habit of
keeping an uncommonly line brand
of whibkoy ho would try to find
some. The unknown then proceeded
to open a chest of drawers, and euro
enough dropped upon the bottle of
a special brand of Ilourbon that hud
been prescribed for the Hotel
boarder for medicinal purposes. He
poun.d out a tegular fivc-flugercd
nip which nearly half emptied the
bottle, mopped it down, and draw
ing a long breath remarked to the
astonished housekeeper that she
could tell "Jake" that he would
"call agaiu." It is needless to say
that the unknown "brother" bus not
since been seen.
HE ONLY PAPER rrad by
cuae "iiie ifuiiy nuiuuu."
THAT PASSPORT TAX.
Wc notice that our contemporary
tho Uut.uvriN is again at the fore on
that passport lax business. During
tho last session of tho Legislature,
the editor of tltis paper laid before
the house n bill abolishing said tax
and also one to abolish that lax of
$2 levied on incoming passengers.
He was ably upheld by the Uui.i.k
tin, but both bills failed to pass.
The two objections urged were,
"that our merchants would hove no
hold on absconding debtor," and
that "Queen's Hospital needed the
Now, us to the former, we. do not
believe that our Government ought
to net as special policeman for such
merchants a are willing to trust
people coming here and living here
without any visible means ol sup
port. Collecting detts Is not a port
of Its duties. The need of such pass
ports is only caused by the foolish
and reckless manner in which the
credit system is run in this country.
If this system was dono away with,
we as a "people would be better off.
Rut as long as our Government h
used as a collector of bad debts so
long will it be kept up.
The injury the passport system
does us Is great. We are inviting
travelers here from all parts of. the
world, nnd after they get hero we
say to them, "Two dollars, if you
please, to land," and being here a
weeks tho said travelers arc again
asked for one more "to prove that
you are not a rascal." What kind
of a way to do business is this? We
advocate our country abroad, and
ask tourists to come, and then sub
ject them to the petty annoyance of
paying 82 when they land and one
more before leaving. This passport
system is a relic of the "dark
years" long gone by, and wc are
among the last of all the enlightened
nations to hold on to it. i-et mer
chants and others be more careful
whom they trust and there will be
no absconding debtors.
Again, why should a few tourists
or travelers be mulcted out of 8-1 for
the sustaining of Queen's Hospital?
That is not a "national hospital,"
open to the "poor of any people"
dwelling or coming here, but it is
only free to the kanakas. If a for
eigner wants the benelit of it, he
must pay for what he gets. If it
was made a free hospital under the
charge of the Government, then not
one of our people would growl, when
appropriations were made by the
Legislature for its support. Rut to
tax foreigners coming here for "its
support, nnd then deny them admit
tance if it were needed, is a good
reason why foreigners object to pay
the tax. Let our Government sus
tain the hopital out of our public
funds and don't let us place such a
mean, petty annoyance in the way
of those calling in to see our beauti
ful countiy. Let our doors be open
and free to all without let or hin
drance. We then call on our new
members of the Legislature to abo
lish both of the above-named taxes.
If you do, the majority of your con
stituents will say, "well dono."
Keep at it, friend Rt'i.i.r.nx.
Don't give them any peace and we
will win tho day. Hilo Record,
Pursuant to a call issued in the
Huu.ktix a number of gentlemen
met at the Hawaiian Hotel last night
to take the initial steps toward or
ganization of a chess club. The
meeting was called to order by Mr.
Gear. Mr. Uruce Cartwright was
elected chairman and Mr. Frank
Godfrey was chosen secretary. On
motion' of Mr. Gear a committee of
five on Ways and Means with full
discretionary powers with Mr. Cart
wright as chairman was appointed.
Toe oilier four members of the com
mittee are Mews. A. V. Gear, Dr.
J. II. Kimball, Col. C. P. laukca,
and Dr. Rradley of the Nipsio. On
motion of Mr. Logan, a committee
of three, consisting of C. M. White,
A. V. Gear and U. II. White was
appointed to draft a prospectus or
preamble setting forth the objects
of the proposed association. After
a short recess the committee sub
milted a repoit which was adopted.
The meeting then adjourned subject
to the call of tho committee.
The committee above alluded to
will make a thorough canvass of tho
city for players and also for a favor
able location of cottage for club
purposes. From statements of Mr.
Cartwright and others at the meet
ing there is reason to predict an
active membership of fifty. It is
designed nlso that the association
frhall embrace a large honorary
membership. Now that the organiza
tion is fully under way let all lovers
of this intellectual game give the
movement the beiieflt of their active
null zealous participation. It is
probable that like other clubs facili
ties of instruction will be afforded
for novices iu the game. This being
tho caso there is no argument against
a very full roll of membership.

REMARKABLE SEA ADVH1TURE.
The following story is going tho
Captain William Goodling, com
mander of tho bnrquu Tcwkesbuiy
Sweet, lost in the South Pacific last
spring, has just arrived at Yar
mouth. He and his crcn had been
given up for dead. The vessel sail
ed from Newcastle, New South
Wales, on March 17 for Hongkong.
On April 9 she encountered a gale
nnd was driven ashore on Susanro
Reef, near Pozeat Island, one of the
Carolines. The crew escaped in
one of the boats and managed with
great difllculty to reach a small Islet
to the northward. After the storm
had subsided they made for the M
and of l'ozeat, which is inhabited by
fierce savages. As tho boat ap
proached the island a fleet of canoua
put off from the shore. There wero
about 30 canoes, with eight or 10
men in each, and all wero armed
with knives and spears, Some of
the savages in their eagerness Jump
ed overboard and swam to the boat,
each with a long knife held between
his teeth. The first savages to reach
the boat clambered in until the boat
was nearly swamped. Then they
began to strip the sailors of their
conts and outer garments, throwing
the garments aboard their own ca
noes. The men were soon despoiled
of everything but their undershirts.
This done, the whole fleet drew in
towards the land. Tho sailor ex
pected no better treatment than to
be killed and eaten, but, as they
learnt afterwards, the natives of this
island are not cannibals. While the
shipwrecked crew were standing sur
rounded by the noisy crowd a man,
dressed as all the others, with only a
cloth about his hips.camc forward and
spoke to them in English. He gavo
his name as Charles Irons, tin En
glishman by birth, and offered to
tender any assistance possible. It
seems that ho was left at Pozeat by
a trading vessel about four years
ago, his business being to represent
traders iu Cocoanut Island, but tho
vessel never called for Irons since
leaving him, and he had gradually
assumed the habits of the natives.
Irons had even forgotten many of
the common details of civilisation,
but he was of good service to tho
captain and no doubt saved the lives
of him and his crow. Captain
Goodling, the second mate, Georgo
W. Harrison, and one of the ship'a
crew set sail ten days after their ar
rival, leaving tho rest of the men
and first mate, Richard Watchman,
seven' men iu all, at Pozeat.
