PACIFIC CABLE ALL RIGHT
No Objection by State Department to tbe
Assurances from President Scrymser of PaclDc
Cable Co. That Work Will Begin
at Very Early Date.
A very early start iu the con
struction of n cablo between San
FrnnciBCO and tho Hawaiian Isl
ands is almost an asurod fact.
Wm. G. Irwin recoivod by last
mail lottors from James A. Scrym
ser, president of tho Pacific Cablo
Co., which are in tho highest do
It will bo remombored that a
contract for a cable was signed
between the Hawaiian Govern
ment and tho Pacific Cablo Co. in
Honolulu on July 2 last. Ono of
the conditions of tho contract was
that it should have tho approval
of tho Stato Depaitment of the
United States Government. It is
evident from Mr. Scrymsor's ad
vices that the State Department
will uot disapprove of the con
tract. Upon the basis of his con
fidence that such will bo tho case,
Mr. Scrymser further gives n9sur
aucos that tho work will be takou
up at a very early date.
As tho New York Herald pre
dicted in an article tho middle of
July, it would appear that, aside
from the question of cost, tho
dangor of jeopardizing American
intoiests by unlay iu coramtiuicat
iug with Manila, Hawaii and the
Lud rones, has swept away all ob
jeatious. lhtro is certainly no ob
staclo in tho matter of cost with
tho Pacifio Cablo Co., incorporated
as it is with a capital of 310,000,
000. Beinu incorpoiated under tbe
laws of tho State of Now York, it
is puroly on American company.
Mr. ScrymBor tho president is
also prosidont of tho Contral and
South Amorienu Teleeraph Co.,
which has built and oporatos 11,-
000 miles of cables botween to
United States, Mexico, tho Central

CAPTAIN NAT C, MESSER
Man Who Has Seen Sea and Land
Tells About the Troopship Scandla Does Not
Care About Having Steamer Made
No moro congenial or woll
thought of officer has perhaps ovor
come into the port of Honolulu
than Captain Nat O. Me6sor, an
army officer in command of tho
troopship Scandia, no lying at
tho Oceanic wharf. Tho soldiers
who camo along with him from
San Francisco and tho men of tho

into n troopship in San Francisco
but luck was with us. It would
hnvo takou too long as it would

"The Scandia is not at all suited
for a hospital ship nor yot for a
troopship. However, upon hor
arrival in Manila, for which port
wo will sail in fivo or six day,
she may be convortd
into n hospital shin.

tho enso with tho other mon who
mako up the working forco of tho
ahip. They signed on tho Scan
dia for work on a troopship aud
not a hospital ship. Sorao of tho
officers have takon out life insur
anco policies aud if thoy aro to
sorvo on a hospital ship, these
must certainly affactod.
"Tho Scandia, upon leavincr hpr
stores in Manila, will proceed at
ouco to San Francisco, there to bo
completoly ronovated. Tho old
