not authonzod by the trnra. The
announcement was mndo in the

good authority. There was cer
tainly ample time betw-on that
and Tuosday afternoou to change
matters and announce to the
publio that the Stars would not
play but this was not done by any
members of tho team. Aa it was a
number of people went out to the
baseball grounds and saw a fiasco
of a game between tho Sherman
boys and a piokod team, after hav
ing paid twenty-fivo cents. To
moat peoplo it would look as if
the Sta'-a are to blame for the

The United States tug boat Iroquois, Lieut Pond commander,
returned this morning after an absence since last Friday during
which time stops were made at Lahalna, Maui, Kealakeluia Day
on the Kona coast and Hilo. Captain Merry, commandant of the
Naval Station here, was the only passenger in the Iroquois. In
fact, the-tug boat went out at his orders, the idea being to make
the circuit of the islands of Maui nnd Llawaii for the purpose of
inspecting various places with an eye to sending information to
the United States Government. Captain Merry was seen at his
office this forenoon and, in response to questions asked by a
BULLETIN reporter, gave out the following:
" No, the United States Government has no particular design
so far in regard to harbors but information has been asked for by
the authorities and for that reason alone I made the trip in the
" Neither Lahaina nor Kealakekua can be recommended as
places for harbors. A few hours' inspection proved that very
" When von come to Hilo it is a different matter. With the
building of a crescent shaped breakwate) (n matter of very lit
tle trouble) a very fine harbor could be produced. This inform
ation will, of course, be sent forward.
We remained in Hilo two days and the whole situation was
studied carefully. -j
" As you know, my first intention was to go to Kauai, the
Garden Isle, but this was changed. From what 1 saw on the
coasts of Maui and Hawaii, a trip to Kauai wilfnot be necessary.
Now then as to harbor matters in general and Pearl Harbor
" You know that Pearl Harbor whs conceded to the United
States some time ago. Now that the flag of the United
States tiles over the islands, the appropriation of $ioo,odo has
been made for dredging.
" This appropriation still stanJs, but it is insufficient and the
Navy Department has recommended, that nothing be done until
a situation on land is obtained.
When Pearl Harbor was conceded, the concession was
made without any land and that is just where the big pilikia
comes in now. s
" The land all along the water front is owned by private par
ties and, when it was sought by the United States Government
to purchase some of this, the parties concerned held their posses
sions at such an exorbitant price that it was decided to allow
the matter to drop for a while.
" However, something may be done in the near future. The
Bureau of Equipment has recommended to the government that
condemnation proceedings be instituted against some of the
land already referred to.
The law of Eminent Domain is very clear here and if the
lands are condemned they will be valued according to the taxa
tion of previous years. There will be rigid kicks and court pro
ceedings of course. Nothing more is to be expected. That is all
1 have to say in regard to harbor matters.
" I might add that several people wereMnvited to go In the
Iroquois but, on account of that recently arrived malady term
ed in American slang "cold feet," none of these people showed
up. The Iroquois made a very quick trip and was blessed with
the delights of a smooth voyage."
