different officials vary as to tho cause
of tho accident, but tho damage sus
tained by tho steamship will probably
amount to several hundred thousand
Tho St. Paul left Southampton 111J
Cherbourg on October 2ttli with a full
cargo, 31C cabin passengers and 215 In
tho steerage. About 8 o'clock on tho
evening ot Monday last, while some, of
the Huloon passengers were still at
dinner nnd others wcro promenading,
a sudden shock was left all over the
ship, although It was not sufficiently
severo to cause a panic. Tho engines
wcro stopped In a few minutes, but it
is said that during that brief time tho
whirling machinery, free ot tho weight
ot tho propeller, wrought havoc In tho
engine-room. The officials of thd
steamship refused to allow any one to
enter tho engine-rooms.

In Territorial Executive quarters
there Is wander fclft ps to the occasion
and form of proceedings reported as
contemplated by the Federal authori
ties to attack public land transactions
effected slnco the inauguration of tho
Territory of Hawaii on June 111900
As the Organic Act makesc the ad
ministration of Territorial lands sub
ject, to the Hawaiian land laws wltn
certain limitations, tho only cause for
Federal Interference would bo a tia
versing ot such limitations in transac
tions. A sale ot Olaa lands Is believe 1
to be the subject of the threatened pro
ceedings. J. C llalrd, L S. District Attorney,
does not feel nt liberty to disclose the
nature of his Instructions In the premi
ses before tho matter comes Into court.
With regard to tho reported Instruc
tions to Commander Pond to proceed
ulththe naval station steamer Iroquois
on a crulso In search of Bqtiatti-rs
among the Islands, Mr. Balrd Is at a
loss to know what the occasion and thu
mode of search may be. Many of tho
Southern States havo laws practical')
affirming the sovereignty of squatters
long ago a subject of strenuous con
troversy In national politics. On this
account, valuable plno timber lands In
Mississippi may be had for a dollar an
acre, but are practlcall) unsaleable on
account of the liability of a purchaser's
being confronted with squatters on the
Tho Northern States and the Federal
Government are not so kindly dispos
ed toward squatters. On several oc
casions tho national authorities have
driven squatters off tho public domain
so that they might not havo titles to
ripen under tho law of twenty ears'
possession. It Is probnbl) In pursuance
of the same policy, that the Iroquois
Is ordered, if such Is tho case, to cruise
for squatters. The term of ndveiso
possession to give tit,tio has.ln the liana
Han Islands, recently been amended
to ten Instead of twenty years .
