The unprotected condition of tho
shipping in the harbor from fire was
illustrated last night by tho fire on the
schooner Eclipse which, although It
was discovered In time, might have
been very serious.
This morning, Messrs, E. Faxon
Bishop, r. W. Klebahn, John S. Walk
or and several other gentlemen Inter
ested In Insurance, wcro Invited to be
present at tho fire drill held aboard tho
tug Fearless. They were given nn
object lesson In what the tug can do
as a flro department.
The nlarm was given and. In less
than two minutes, the big tug had sit
powerful streams of water playing In
nil directions.. Her pumps were work
ed to their fullest capacity and, had
tho water not been diverted, the sheds
on tho Pacific Mall wharf would have
been torn down. As It was, tho wharf
received n very thorough cleaning.
Somo of the streams were thrown n
distance of 200 feet, s an agent for
the quenching of fire, those present
voted tho Spreckels tug n great suc
cess and It Is probablo that. In view
ot tho fact that nothing has been done
by the Leglslatme looking to the pro
tectlon of the harbor nnd shipping
from fire, tho insurance companies
will make somo arrangement with the
eFnrless to look out tor things in fu
ture. Francis Murphy Hall

tho firms named which aro engnged In
the Hawaiian trade.
For several years tho action lately
tnken has been under way ns it was
considered to the mutual benefit of tbn
ships and their owners that a single
management would be of great advan
tage. Under the new arrangement,
tho operating expenses nnd earnings of
tho licet will bo pooled nnd the net
earnings divided among tho share
holders of the corporation, who con

There was some talk among tho
Home Rulers of prolonging the session
If posslblo until Beckley's return.
Whether this will bo dono or not Is
not known. Prendergast was appoint

Agriculture. Mossmnn took Becklcv's

CONFERENCE WAS HELD
WITH BOSSES YESTERDAY
Employers Offer Important Conces
sions.But the Men Say They
Won't Work With Non
There was a conference yesterday be
tween a committee from the stilklng
machinists and President Swnnzy and
Superintendent Dyer of the Honolulu
Iron Works. It was hoped by both
tides that this conference would settlo
all differences and that the Idle men
would go back to work and that ac
cumulated orders awaiting attention
could bo rushed out.
At tho cloao of the conferenco the
parties wero nearer together than at
any preIous time but wcro nt a con
siderable distance from n settlement.
Tho officers of tho company wero will
ing to concede tho demands mado by
the strikers relative to the employ
ment of apprentices. They even went
so far ns to say It did not matter to
them If they had no apprentices In the
shop nt all. Other minor demands
were ncceded to and It was frnnkly
rlated that there was work at the shops
for tho Idle men to Jo and the man
ngers would be glad if they would do
Tho strikers wero willing to ndmlt
that they wanted to work and seemed
to appreciate tho spirit In which their
old employers wero willing to niako
concessions. But they refused to go to
work unless tho non-union men, now
nt work aro displaced.
This Is as great n difference ns the
ones thnt at first caused Iho split. The
position ot tho company on this de-
nnnd as stated by President Sivanzy Is:
'We havo never broken faith with any
man and can not begin now. Wo have
brought theso men here nnd have no
right to throw them out ns long as
they faithfully discharge their duties."
Ono ot the striking machinists dat
ed to a Bulletin reporter: "Union men
never work along sldo of non-union
It Is therefore clear that tho differ
ences have narrowed down to the old
ono of a union endeavoring to dictate
whom shall havo employment.
