Tbo arrival of tho brig Percy B.
Edwards oil port this morning
bas given the waterfront oracles
plentySlot mnttor for talk. Sho
Las on board a queer expedtWir
of about 100 porsons who are in
torested in a sort of co-operativo
colonization scheme, but they
seom to bavo but d vory queor idea
of what particular island they aro
going to colonize. According to
the Coast papers, which havo boon
full of tho strango expedition for
weeks, tho scheme owes its incep
tion to a fake story in a sensation
al morning newspaper about an
island in tho South Pacific that
was desolato of men by reason of
war and "blaokbirdiug." This
wired narrative declared that tho
crew of a passing ship had been
ontroated by tho great numbers of
lonosomo women to romain and
marry thorn. Thero wore othor
liko embellishments and tha
"Adamlcss Eden" island began to
bo taken seriously for a timo.
Subsequently tho myth was ex
ploded in tho newspapers, lloiu
hart, the projector of tho enter
prise, so it is said, at first bad in
view the idoa of supplying the
dusky and husband hungry fe
males with mates. Subsequently,
whon the story was oxploded, he
changed tho charter by calling
it a "colonization scheme." What
the end of it will bo remains to bo
Each member of tbe expedition
has paid in $100 to tho general
fund, which has been placed in
tbe hands of general managor
Reinhart, who up to tho timo of
sailing bad received about $10,000
in this way. Of this 2500 was
paid for tho brig, and about as
much for ropairs and provisions,
leaving boiuo $5000 still in Rein
hart's pockot book.
The clearance papers of tho
Percy Edwards, which wore issued
to Captain Peterson in tho name
of the United Brotherhood of tho
South Sea Islands, designate Le
vuka, in the Fiji group of islands,
aa tho destination of tho voyage.
Prom that point Captain Potorson
announces he will proceed to Bou
gain Island in tho Solomon group.
Beyond this all is hazo and mist.
The expedition then loses itself
nnywhoro in the coral dotted ocean
if tho word of those who aro man
aging it is to be taken seriously.
There aro provisions aboard tho
vo3sol sufficient to feed tho voy
agers for one year. In all thero
aro just 100 men in the crowd.
They hail from all points along
tho coast and embrace almost
ovory trade and profession. Thoro
is one notable vacancy, aud, con
sidering the co - oporativo Bido
of tho affair, it is an important
ono. Thero is no shoemaker in
The provisions and general
supplies havo beon paid for out of
tho funds collected by Roinlinrt.
Each member of tho expedition,
howover, has laid in some extras
on his own accouut. Iu tho item
of firearms and ammunition, a
Koarny-Btreet eforo sold stock to
tho amount of' SM00 to the Percy
Edwarda' passeuger list. Theso'
arms woro purchased with a viow
of mixing up with cannibals.
The baggage list comprises some
queer articles. An Italian, who
hails from Stockton, took with
him as his possession a fiddlo and
a ten-gallon demijohn of chonp
Tho brig is 189 tons net and
but 104 feot long, consequently
Roinhart and his followers find
their now quarters nono too
spacious. In faot, the mattor of
Bleeping accommodations has
boen n source of much worry.
Tho cabin has boon provided with
bunks at tho oxponso of tho cubic
air regulations. In tho stern an
additional house has been built,
equipped with a cooking galley,
wboro more bunks have bopu
constructed. Below in the hold
the remainder of tho crowd will
sleep as best they can.
The crow of tho vessel will con
sist of sixtoon Bailors. Like every
body else on board, they too havo
a largo stock of faith, for their
wages for tho most part consist of
projective profits in tho South
Seas. Tho highest salaried offi
cer aboard is tbe first otHcor, who
will recoive 75 cents per month.
Four cabin-boys, niguod for 25
cents a month. Tho rank and filo
of the crow will work for GO cents
a month. Thero will be a boat-
I swain, cockswain and many othor
potty omcors at cabn-boy wages.
Captain Petersen expects to
reach Levuka within sixty days.
From that point to tho Solomon
Islands is over 1500 miles in a
northwestorly direction, and the
courso is tortuous with islands and
coral reefs. Here all dofiuito ideas
of the voyago end, but with tho
best of woathor over 100 days will
bo spont in getting this far.
According to the Call, some
where in tho vaguo ideas that
iloat through the brains of the
promoters of the expedition they
havo a plan to drop a portiou of
tho expedition on one island and
tho vessol is then to proceed to
a second island and laud tho re
maindcr. Roinhart had a lucid
interval tho day beforo starting
long onough to realize that ho
anft his colonists would probably
have some difficulty in lauding
nnywhoro in tho South Seas with
out tho consont of the authori
ties that bo. Almost ovory island
in that region is undor tho pro
tectorato of oithor England, France
By way of getting a littlo in
formation along thoso lines Rein
hart called on British Consul
Wnrburton to learn that ho would
havo to consult tho British Gov
ernor at Suva if ho wished to
locate his regiment of ad venturers
in either the Fiji or Solomon
groups. German Consul Rosen
thal was sought for information
about New Guinea, which is one
of the prospective promised lands,
nud ho told his callers that per
mission to settle thero must bo ob
tained from tho "Now Guinea As
sooiatiou." It is in' tho pro
gramme of tho expedition, if stress
of circumstances should warrant
it, to place itself by means of a
declaration of naturalization un
dor tho protection of somo of tho
foreign protectorates to bettor aid
in any struggles with natives.
Ouco the passengorB aro safoly
landed Captain Petoisou and
Reinhart say they will return to
San Francisco with n cargo of
mahogany. Thoy thqn anticipato

colonists to tho South Seas.
Reinhart says he has now ovor

tho vessel. He has orgauized his

Tho last decision of tho Janu

was filptltliiH morning. It was
upon the t'iu)ro.Qif Jowph O. Car

IJorry and AV. R. Castlo, moraber
of tho bar, tho two last sitting in
placo of Chief Justice Judd and
Associato JuHticti Whiting, dis
qualified. The quo3tion at issue
was whether the widow of tho

first defendant named, should

one sixth of defendant's cstato loft
by will to his bou, the said Chas.
L. Cartor, its iucome to him for,
his lifo aud, after his death, tho
property itself to bo divided among
his heirs according to the laws of
thia country, or whether tho child
ren should toko tho proporty alone.
In the Circuit Court a formal de
cree was mado that tho childron
alone wero tho heirs, aud Mrs.
Carter appealed to tho Supremo
Justice Frear writes tho unani
mous opiuion of. tho Court, in
which tho decree of tho Circuit
Court is affirmed. It is hold, that
tho heirs were thoso who would
take undor tho statuto of descent
and that, although tho wifo would
bo an heir if thero .wero no child
ren, yot upon tho son's doath leav
ing children the wife took nothing.
The opinion defines tho difference
botwoen a dower cstato and an ob
tato by descent.

The ilnv.tumu steamer Kahu--lui,
the vessel with a dozen
aliases, !b to bo remeasured, given
au American register and renamed
tho Cleveland, nfter tho stout
prophet of Gray Gables. Tho
Kahului is in Oakland creek un
dergoing a thorough overhauling.
Her owner, Captain Nolsou, will
piobably charter Grovor'a numo

Company and placo hor iu the

The Kahului is a vessol with a
history. Sho was originally the
steamer Columbiu, a trans-At
lantic liner under tho Jinglish flag,
that was considered ouo of tho
fastost steamers of that poriod.
This was years ago, however,
when steamors woro very slow.
Next she was heard of as the
Siiius, and b1i6 plied between
coal ports aa a regular cargo
carrier; then sho bocame tho
Scauclinaviii nnd bolonged to tbe
Weeks Brothers, a couple of gen
tlemen whoso meteoric career got
them into trouble and left thoir
Bhip on their hands in San Fran

F. B. Oliver, the well-known
local commission merchaut, then
secured possession of the Scandi
navia and decided to send hor to
Central America for a cargo, then
placo hor regularly on tho Central
America route. Mr. Oliver gave
the stoamor tho namo of SiriuB
for tho second timo.
Tho Pacific Mail was too much
for Mr. Oliver and ho had to aban
don his Coutral American projoot.
Ho turned tho ship ovor to a local
bank and tho bank sold hor to tho
Johnson-Locko Morcantilo C6m
pany. Again sho was given a now
name.jhia timo tho Santa Clara.
Johnson-Locke organized nn ex
pedition to go to tho South Africa
gold fields, but had to give up the
undertaking becausoof lack of ap
plicants for berths.
Captain Nelson then camo into
possession of tho vessol and called
her tho Kahului. Sho was regis
tered under tho Hawaiian ilug.
Captain Tyson took command of
her and oporated her as success
ful as was possible to operate tho
craft, but sho waB too slow to moot
