OLD BAUK IS LEAKY AND
MEN ON SHORT RATIONS
Vessel Left Colonies Overloaded and
Made Slow Trip in Bad
The old bark Sonoma, eighty eight
elnjs from Newcastle, with a full cargo
of coal, finally arrived hero this morn
ing after beating about to Iccvvuid
since Sunday afternoon In a vain of
foit to get within sight of Diamond
Head. Yesterday afternoon sho wan
Hlghted way to the westward but too
fai for the Fearless to go after her
and get her to port beforo sunset.
The vessel left tho Colonies over
loaded, and. as a result, not being fast,
she made bad weather and poor time
on tho trip. Nearly all tho time tho
pumps were kept going and some
times the water rose alarmingly In
her hold. Tho windmill pump kept
the vessel pretty free when thcro was
wind, but tho men had a hard time of
It, The long passage made tho pro
visions run short, nnd on arrival thero
were but ten bags of flour, half a bar
lcl of beef, twenty pounds of coffeo
and Ave pounds of tea In tho store
room. This morning In tho harbor tho
butcher was the most welcome mnn
who went over the side of tho vessel,
nnd he Immediately put himself In
communication with tho cook, who
gave him an order for a big feast. In
cluding one dollar's worth of whlto su
gar. The men will havo a dinner to
da that they will rolls! and aro all
truly grateful for their arrival hero.
The captain of tho Sonoma reports
that bad weather was experienced a
greater part of tho trip nnd that for
three witeks ho lay on and off Hawaii,
one week of tho tlmo In a dead calm.
The high trades of Sunday night blow
him way to leeward and ho considers
himself very lucky to havo got back
so soon as ho did.
Speaking of the performance of the
old bark, the mate said this morning
that sho was llko the second coming
n to speed and that she had two gaits,
one dead slow, and tho other stopped.

ROOSEVELT IS DETERMINED
SHALL CHARACTERIZE OFFICIALS
Washington, D. C, Jan. 24. ISpecial.l President Roosevelt has decided that the time Is ripe for adjust
ment of Hawaiian affairs and has taken a decisive step towards accomplishment of this desired result. It is the
President's desire that the unseemly factional disturbances, which have marked the affairs of the Government of
the Territory to the present time, be ended and that Territorial matters henceforth shall be conducted with
less friction than In the past.
His solution of the problem is to place In the two most Important offices of the Territorial Government men
of high character and ability who are not extremists and who represent the liberal sentiment of the two
opposing factions. By such appointments the opposing elements may be enabled to meet upon common
ground the upbuilding of the commercial and material interests of the Territory, and the establishment of a
harmonious and American system of benefit to all.
The President has written a letter by this mall to Hon. George R. Carter requesting him to accept the
position of Secretary of Hawaii. If Mr. Carter will accept this place the appointment will be made and at the
same time Hon. Samuel Parker will be appointed Governor.
These appointments. It Is believed, will give Hawaii a Territorial Government with the attributes which
''the President desires. J. A. BRECKONS.

KOHALA WATER SCHEME NOT EXCLUDED
Editor Evening Bulletin: P.ease to correct what is an unfortunate misunderstanding of the scope of
the mass meeting to be held under a resolution of the Republican Territorial Central Committee, namely, that
the Kohala water matter is part of tne plan of said meeting
Trjls is not tho fact. The committee voted unanimously to hold a meeting to oppose the Leper bill. It
would not have voted unanimously, If the Kohala water matter had been Included, for the reason that the name
of the head of the Republican organization Is connected with the water scheme, and the names of prominent Re
publicans are connected with a schema relating to the same water privilege, and our Territorial Government has
taken action of some kind upon It, and It would, therefore, be only fair to hear from Colonel Parker, our Nation
al Committeeman, or some representative of his before striking at him through a private business scheme.
I earnestly hope that there shall be a full discussion of the matter before our committee In advance of any
effort to put the Republican party on record either for or against the Kohala water bill. Any other course
may provoke trouble and destroy harnonlous action at our meeting. T. M'CANTS STEWART.

Geo. R. Carter Receives
Letter from Roosevelt
Next to Col. Sam Parker, George R. Carter Is undoubtedly the most-talked-of
man In Honolulu today on account of the news which came by the
Hongkong Maru last night regarding the Governorship situation In Hono
lulu, and the mention of his name in the dispatches. Mr. Carter was seen
this morning at his office by a Bulletin reporter and asked some questions
regarding the matter at issue.
"Have you received a letter from President Roosevelt?" was the
first question asked by the reporter.
"Yes, I have; but it is of a confidential nature and I do not care to give
it to any of the papers. However, I believe this Is an issue to be faced
boldly, and I will therefore give you the gist of the President's letter
which came to me by the Hongkong Maru and which I did not receive until
"The letter came at a complete surprise to me. I had never had any
thing to do with political matters In Washington and was not aware that
the President knew of me. What he learned about me was found out by
himself. I have never been a candidate for any office which Is in the gift
of the President"
"Did you not receive a telegram from Hon. Samuel Parker asking you
to meet him In San Francisco?" was the next question asked.
"Yes, I did. Mr. Parker sent me a telegram which arrived by the
Alameda on Saturday, and in this he asked me o meet him in San Fran
cisco, 'at the President's request.' The matter was all important.
"This telegram was very vague and having no Intimation whatever of
what there was in the wind, I did not consider I could go. 1 have bus
iness Interests In the city which require my constant attention, and I felt
that on such vague grounds I could hardly throw up everything sacrifice
the interests of those for whom I am working, and go on to San Fran
cisco I wrote to Mr. Parker to this effect.
"To tell you the truth, I did not know what the telegram meant and
so I went to George A Davis and asked him If he could enlighted me in any
way. He stated that he would not be surprised if the telegram from Mr
Parker had something to do with the Secretaryship. From what Mr.
Davis said. I could see that he knew something about the matter.
"Still the whole thing was vague and I could not make head nor tail
out of the situation. The letter which I received from the President this
morning throws more light on the matter."
"If you are offered the office of Secretary of the Territory of Hawaii,
would you accept?" was then asked.
"I do not believe the position has been offered me," was Mr. Carter's
