Half a Cargo.
After an experience with the ele

minds of her passengers for many a
day, the smart schooner Hosamonil,
Captain Andrew II. Johnson, arrived
at an early hour this morning, 22 days
rum San Frauclsco.

new suit had been drawn on from tho

Captain Johnson this mornfnB, "than
anything else' afloat. A schooner, and
particularly tho-Rosamond, can stand a
living galo better than your squnrc

Telling the story of the vessel's voy
age, Captain Johnson had the follow
ing to say: t
"With half a cargo of General mer
chandise and a number of passengers,
chiefly ladles, we left San Francisco
behind on February 13, an unlucky
date, so they say, but as good us an)
other as far as I am concerned.
, "Southeasterly winds met us out
islde the Golden Gate, and they woro
blowing at n good rate, too. I saw
promise of a change, however, and,
sure enough, we hadn't been at Bea
twenty-four hours before the wind
hauled round to, the south, blowing
stronger than ever and threatening nil
kinds of weather.
"The passengers, especially the la
dles, were dreadfully seasick and there
were very few faces nt meal times.
"Pretty soon the wind from the
south Increased In force and presently
was blowing n living gale. Something
had to go and the storm amused ttsclt
. now and then by ripping off n piece of
canvas. The sails went like handker
chief In a whirlwind.
"Tremendous seas wero running nnd
we took water on our decks by the ton.
Of course the passengers staid below;
no one ventured on deck who had no

we could stand In the way of wind.
Then we got It from the west and got
It strong. If It blew a gale from tho
fcouth. It surely blew a gale and a half
from the west and more of our canvas
flew adown the wind.
"Next a gale from the southwest had
Its Innings. From southwest the wind
blilfted to south again, and then to
southeast, keeping up Its fury nearly
all the time,
"For fifteen days we had gales from
the southwest, south and southeast,
then the blessed northeast trades took
hold of us and brought us along Hy
ing, the Rosamond making sometime?
275, 260 and 255 knots a day. Some
times we were moving from 12 to 14
knots fn the hour, I wlsli wo had had

When the Rosamond was In San

At tho regular monthly meeting ol
tho Free Kludergartcn Association this
morning, the question arose as to the.
value of a garden In kindergarten
training. Since 1899 a yearly rental ol
$150 has been paid for the use ot a va
cant plot near tho Fort street kinder
garten. A small portion ot this was
paid by residents of the neighborhood,
but the great part has been met for
three years by ono generous member
of the association.
Tho Forst stret kindergarten Is a
small one, and with the many cnlls
upon the association for money. It has
become a question as to whether so
great an cxpenso is Justified In order
that thirty little Chinese children may
enjoy a garden. It was shown, h.l
ever, that aside from the decided
hygienic value of out-of-door work, the
children are being trained In good cltU
zenshlp. They are being taught to
love fresh nlr nnd Mother Earth, to
grow nutritious vegetables and bright
flowers, to produce something ol
economic value and all this wU cer
tainly add to their desirability as cltl'
Consequently tho Association decid
ed to continue the rental of the garden
plot, even at some sacrifice, and the
children will still delight In luncheons
of beans and other vegetables which
they have themselves raised

PUBLIC LAND RULINGS
Governor Dole was seen today re
garding what effect If any the public
land rulings from Washington might
have upon the Nnhlku leases compris

Reference was to tho opinions of Willis
Van Ucvantert Assistant Attorney Gen

tory of Hawaii, dated February 7 last,
relative to an application of the Mc
Drydc Sugar Company for the ex
change of 2000 acres ot that corpora
tion's land for C000 acres of public land.
Commissioner E. S. Iloyd, who was In
Washington when he wrote tho com
munication, propounded tho question
"whether such exchange ot land, If In
other respects advisable, would be pre
cluded by reason of the proviso In Sec
tion 55 of tho Organic Act of the Ter
ritory, which requires that no associa
tion hold nnd ncqulre over one thou
sand (1000) acres."
Governor Dole spoke ot the Mc
Ilryde matter to tho reporter before
answering the question regarding tho
Nahlkti leases. Ho. Bald when shown
tho Washington opinions in print:
"That Is about tho exchange of land
proposed by tho McUryde company. It
was not an even exchange nnd the

what was offered .did not come within

cluded that the transaction was clearly
forbidden by tho Organic Act. Tho

"I don't know why Mr. Uoyd should
have submitted tho question at Wash

it was received, and I presume took It
In his head to submit the question to'
Mr. Hitchcock." I
Respecting tho leases of the so-called
Nahlku lands, tho 19,000 acres lu tha
District ot Koolau, Mr. Dolo said:

P. Dole, It will bo remembered, drew
a. distinction between feo simple and

etymological definition of the phrase,
"to hold and ncqulre."
Governor Dole was next asked If tho
power to lease public land was not
limited to a term of five years, and ho '
"That is for agricultural lands. The
Nnhlku leases nre for forest lands.
There Is n clear distinction between
the two classes of laud."

F. A. Schaefer, the president ot tho
Planters' Association, states that at
tho present tlmo nothing will bo done
with regard to tho Importation of VI
sayan laborers from the Philippines.
Upon tho whole, ho does not bellovn
that Hawaii will over obtain laborers
from this source, for tho reason that
tho fact that Chinese labor has to be
employed In tho Philippines shows
that tho natives of theso Islands must
be undcHlrablo as laborers.
Tho Island steamers Nlihau, Koau-

An ambiguous or rather meaningless
passage In Governor Dolo's letter to
Secretary Hitchcock, as quoted In tho
second opinion of Mr. Van Devnnter,
was pointed out to the Governor. Tho
reporter presumed n line had been
dropped in the printing.

William McCarthy appeared In the

charge living thu outgrowth of tho
samo old trouble oil which ho appeared
recently !n tho Circuit Court.
The piellmlnarles In tho case result
ed in quite a war of words between the.
uepuly bhcrlfl and Mr. Hitting, tho at
torney for tho defense, nnd the final
ccntlmmnce of tho enso until tonior
rw toropoon. Attoruoy Hitting first
olijrcltd that tho complaint was do
led ivo und moved that tho same be
qiiached. It did not state the Torri
lory of Oahu. There were only the
words "Honolulu. Oahu." This mlgh
ho In tho Gilbert Islands or any other
Deputy Sheriff Chllllngwnrth an'
Bwored that tho complaint was headed
with tho wools "Honolulu, Oahu, Ter
litory nt Hawaii," and that that was
riifiiclcnt. Judge Wilcox stated that
ho would allow an amendment. It wna
hard to tell nowadays Just where tho
HghlnirK would strike. Mr. Chllllng
wnrth 'mmcdlatcly asked to Insert tho
words "Territory of Hawaii" In tho
(cmplulm, nnd the motion was grant
ed. Upon asking the nttorncy for the
defenso what, tho plea would bo, Mr,
Hitting answered that tno defendant
would plead once In Jeopardy on Iden
tically tho same charge. Judge Wilcox
stated that If tho defendnnt refused
to plead, he would order the clurk to
enter a plea or nut guilty. Mr. Hitting
thereupon stated that he was not at
tempting to trifle with tho Court hut
that ho had meant Just what ho said.
Judge Wilcox answered that It tho
Court thought thcro was any trifling,
something would surely happen.
At this point In tho proceedings,
Sheriff Drown arose nnd asked that
il-c case go over until tomorrow morn'
Ing. Tho matter had been presented
to the Grand Jury and this body might
havo some report to make. Mr. Bit
ting was on his feet In a minute, de
manding that his client bo given an Im
mediate trlnl Ho could not and Bhould
i.ot bo held simply becauso the pros
ecution was awaiting what the Grand
Jury might havo to say. He should bo
freed nt onco.
At this point Deputy Shorlf! Chilling
worth sprang to tho floor and stated
that there must bo something wrong
wiih Mr. nittlng's head in tho matter
of memory. Time and tlmo again ho
had tomo Into tho Police Court and
asked lor continuances and on one oc
casion had had the audacity to ask for
a tonthiiianco of two weeks, Now,
when tho prosecution, on the first ap
peal unco of tho defendant, asked fur
h continunnco of one day. ho objected.
T!uro wns certainly something wroug
with the counsel for tho defenso.
Judge Wilcox Interfered at this point
saying that tho ntlornoys should be
llko an electric light, giving out a
great deal or Illumination but no heat
Mr. Hitting then said that tho Deputy
Sheriff should get a new lamp, ns tin

Thu matter ended by Judge Wilcox
granting the continuance asked for
