9 o'clock. Quartermaster Cannon ot
tho Warren stated this morning that
tho only trouble causing tho delay was
mat two furnaces wore out of order.
Tfeso would probably be repaired by
trnlght. Cntton & Nelll wero doing
tho work. When asked whether thero
was any truth In the report that the
Honolulu Iron Works had refused to
lake the job, tho quartermaster said
that tho hollermaker from tho Iron
winks had been down to examlno tho
bellcrs and had refused to repair them.
He understood that this man wns very
Independent and only worked when ho
f.'!t like It. He probably did not fancy
tho Job and consequently the Honolulu
Iron Works did not accept.
Cntton & Nelll were seen with re
the trouble was that two crown Bheets
of tho boiler had fallen down. Their
men were now at work stiffening them
wllh braces and strongbacks and tho
job would probably be finished by to
night. Willie the repairs, which could
made hero would only be of a tern
porary nature, still the transport would
bo able to go to Manila and back to
San Francisco In perfect safety. On
The Honolulu Iron Works people re-
ply that they dlu not refuse to do work
on the hollers, as stated In today's Ad
vertiser, but that they weic called up
on to make an examination of the two
corrugated furnaces in question and
reported to tho transport officials that
no repairs could ho made to tho fur
naces that would permit of their be
ing put Into service, and did not de-
Biro to attempt what thoy knew would
be an Impossibility, and further ad
vised that the Warren go to sea with-
to which there would ue no objection
except to slightly reduce the speed
of tho vobsoI. In fact, a year and n
half ago the Warren made the run
from Manila via Honolulu under sim
ilar conditions with one furnace dis
abled. It Is understood from reliable,
sources that tho trouble lies In tho
crown BlieetB, which have been over-
I heated and by the expansion of the
metal, been pressed down. It Is prob-
' able that somo carelessness In letting
1 down wnter was the Immediate cause
of tho damage.
Tho wholo matter of renalrlnc tho
daniago Is not of as great Importance
; as tins been thought, as tho damage
, only puts two furnaces out of commls-
I slop, whllo there aro some ten others
which can bo us-'d without dancer.
It U also Understood that, notwltb-

that port and even thon It will bo
necessary to send East for new parts
of tho boiler.
