An officially reported sea serpent
makes the peoplo wonder whether
there will be nnnther temperance in
u-stli;atlon In the navy.
If V O. Smith were a betting tnai
the people would be disposed to think
he was playing the aocrnorshlp game

The man who has obtained financial
backing for the manufacture of (2000
Hying machines Is deserving of greater
respect than the angel who puta up
harbor development. Every Federal
department will seek appropriations
for carrying out plans of development
In Hawaii. Operations contemplated
by the army and navy are perhaps the
most extensive, but no lens Important
than the work of the agricultural de
partment. The President Is said to take a par
ticular Interest in the western nota
tion for Irrigation of arid lands. Ha
waii will come In for its share of atten
tion In this lino through the Congres
sional action necessary to determine
the rights of thoso now seeking license
to contere the vast water facilities of
districts threatened by periodical
drouth. This matter will doubtless
bring up the Hawaiian land question
and it is to be sincerely hoped that
this Congress will take positive action
that will remote the land sales of this
Territory from the schedule of doubt
Directly and Indirectly Hawaii will
be very much before Congress during
the present session and It behooves our
citizens to be ever watchful that this
Territory shall not lose favors or sutler
from damaging legislation by reason
of failure to be on the alert or active.
In presenting claims to consideration.

Arrest Follows Case in Police Court
Today Woman in Hospital
There was much excitement In the
vicinity of the McCully tract on King
street between and 8 n clock last
night and lliu firing of shots from re
volvers attracted quite a crowd to the
house of a Portuguese, J. Tavas by
name. When the excitement caused
by the shots and the yelling of the
Portuguese of tho neighborhood bad
somewhat subsided, it was found that
the wife of the Portuguese named had
been shot by Tavas, whether by acci
dent or by design remains to bo seen,
The story of the affair, as told by the
younger Tnvos, a tramcar driver, Is as
"The trouble began early In tb
evening. A young man by tho name
of Mersberg came around to our house
nd Insulted my sister by Baying all
manner of vile things and making all
kinds of Indecent proposals to her.
My father ran out of tho houxi and
told Mersberg to get out. Just then.
Harney Joy, a police officer, happened
around and said there roust not bs
any trouble. He showed his badge and
my father said that ho did not care
anything about tho badge. He was in
his own house and ho did not propose
to have anyone coming around insult
ing his daughter.
"It was just at about this time that
someone opposite us fired off a couple
or three shots from a revolver. My
father thought that either Joy or
Mersberg did this and ran Into the
house saying he also was the posses
sor of a revolver. Procuring the wea
pon, he ran out again to the front part
of the houso and fired two shots Into
the air. Later on, ho went back Into
the house and. In attempting to ex
tract the remainder of tho cartridges
from the revolver, there was an acci
dental discharge and tho bullet struck
my mother in the hip.
"The story In tho Advertiser this
morning which Is to the effect that my
father had n quarrel with my mother
Ik not true. Tho discharge of the re
volver wns altogether accidental."

HAWAII IN CONGRESS.
The Congressional session that opens
today In Washington will deal with
and doubtless act on more subjects In
wheh Hawaii is directly Interested
than any yet hed. Hitherto Hawaii has
been before the Nation with a single
purpose, first of closer trade relations
and finally with annexation. Having
accomplished the last our Territory
now comes In for its share In the work
of Federal departments as well as the
national policies whoso object Is to
strengthen American prestige in the
President Roosevelt's message read
In Congress at noon today will have n
powerful Influence In shaping legisla
tion and Is certain to deal forcefully
with matters having a direct bearing
upon this Territory,
Hawaii will look first for the Presi
dent's attitude townrd Cuban recipro
city. Thcro seems to be no Question
that ho will favor such measures as
will strengthen the American hold on
Cuba, at tho same tlmo fulfilling the
American guarantee of Cuban Inde
pendence following the war. The
stralghlcst road to Cuban annexation
'will bo freo trado which Is almost cer
tain to result In a later appeal for poli
tical union. Very little of a positive
nature has been given out regarding
Roosevelt's Cuban policy but It Is
probable that ho will lean towards
some concessions for Cuban trade.
The President's position on the Nica
ragua canul, the Pacific cable and Chi
nese exclusion seem reasonably cer
tain. He will advocate the adoption ot
'lio new canal treaty and tho passage
if the canal bill. He will advocate the
arly construction ot tho Pacific cable
nd the rcenactment of the Chlneso ex
'uslon act. At tho present writing
ic opposition to these measures has
ot shown its hand with sufficient
trength to warrant probable defeat
'.or the President's recommendations.
Outsldo these national measures, Ha

for one entertainment. Tho following
comment Is from tho Hllo Herald:
"The finest musical entertainment
Hllo ever had was given by the Boston
Concert Company at Halll church be
fore a very large, appreciative and en
thusiastic audience last evening. Each
and every member of the company Is
an artist of exceptional ability. Hern
hard Wolthcrs, the violinist. Is not
only a great player but a genius. Ills
style reminds ono of Musln. Ho makes
his violin talk. He moves his audi
ence nnd he was encored again and
again. Lillian Norma, the mezzo so
prano Is an Kngllsh lady of wonderful
personal magnetism and beauty. Her
voice Is one of raro purity und sweet
n ess and her enunciation Is perfect. It
was worth tho price of admission to
hear her sing. Newton, tho humorous
Impersonator, Is a lemarKably fine er
tertntner. He kept his audience In a
continuous road of laughter. Jessie
Tessdale proved a satisfactory accom
panist. Wo regret they had to leave

guaranteed them a liberal amount. A
