Tho America Maru ran into the
"Willscott at tho Pacific Mail wharf
this morning, causing quite a little
damage to tho eailiug vessel. Tho
accident camo about in this way.
Tho last whistle had been blown
and tho staamer waB about ready
to go. Captain Lorenzon, the
pilot assignod to the duty of talc
ing out the America Maru, bnd
not gnneon tbo bridge. Captain
Cope hud junt corao down to at
tend to tome little mattor but be
fore leaving, had given the order
to make ready to sail. It is
thought that tho lever went a littlo
too far and pointed out "slow
ahead" while the peoplowbo went
aboard to say good-byo to friends
wero still streaming down tho
gangway Suddenly, tbero was a
crash. Ono of the bow linos of
tho America Maru had parted and
she had poked her nose uudor tho
awning that was stretched over the
deck of tho Willscott, far astern,
toaring away quito a section of the
rail on tho port side and directly
Captain Loronzon rushed on
tho bridge of the Amerioi Maru
aud gave tho command to reserve
engines in time to save any more
damago. Tho T. K. K Company
will, probably, have to pay tho
damages to the Willscott.
Second Mate CNil of the
AVillsoott was ono of tho inon who
remained very cool while the Am
erica Maru was poking her uoso
into his ship, ho stood uoir by and

Land Agent Brown Answers Some Bulle
Says There Is No Work In the Dark Attention
of People Called to Tbese Lands In
Accord With Land Act.
Editor Evening Bdlletin:
I nm interested in tho communi-
cations to your paper of Feb.
2nd, made by partios signing
"Disgusted" and "Ono who wants
to know" and roforring to the laud
of Wahiawa on this Island, re
cently taken up by a Sottlomont
Association. Tho first named
scorns to think somo great mystery
attaches to this matter thero is
The parties applying for infor
mation abont lands on this Island,
this Wahiawa tract has invariably
been moutioned, and various par
ties havn boen furniehod with
plans and have inspected tho laud
without expressing auy further
interest or desire.
Tho present Sottloment Asso
ciation, and this offico, has pro
ceeded strictly dndor tho provi
sions of tho Land Act and amend
ments for such association, and
tho result is gratifying that tho
land is now taken up by persons
of skill and experience, who pro
pose to establish homes for them-'
selvos and families on this land,
aud to risk time and money iu tho
dovelopmcnt of what was but a
short timo ago pronounced by a
woll known gentleman acquainted
witu tuo laud, "not at to support a
family of pigs.'- ., - . ,
The Settlomont Association
clause of tho Land Act has heeu
in force since August 1895. Hun
dreds of copies of that Act have
boen circulated and your corres
pondents, who are presumably
familiar with tho same, could at
any timo havo obtained full in
formation, organized a settlement
association, aud havo acquired
this land if they had seen fit.
Your second correspondent
'I believe it would havo fetched
much moro money than tho Gov
ernment will now recoivo if put
up at Publio Auction in small
sized lots." Perhaps so quite
likely so, but that might bo trno of
evory Right of Purchase Lease
lot, and every Homestead in tho
If it was simply the question of
cottinK the last cout for Publio
Lands, the wholo area could bo
pat up at auction without any
conditions, and bo knocked down
to a limited numbor of capitalists,
but to whodo good?
Tho purposo of the Land Act
was to establish homos, to devolap
the lands and to devote to now
uses tracts that heretofore havo
sorvod no better purpose tbau to
furnish limited feed to wandering
cattle. The experiment at Wahi
awa is a risky ono to judge by tho
discouraging tales of formor at
tempts; but it is nn important one
and its' success or faiiuro means
I can only say in conclusion:
Thero has been uo "myBlory,"
no "work in the dark."
This land and tho matter of
this Association has beon repeat
odly drawn to tho attention of
parties applying at tins ouicc.
The whole transaction has been
under tho law and in accord
with its intont.
I belie vo your correspondents
aro houost, and correct in drawing
attention to what they may te
lievo to be irregularities, and 1
slial,l be glad at auy timo to give
thorn any information iu my pos
