States In the Court of Claims on ac
count nt the wht.rf-bulldln: contract of
claimants In Honolulu. William It. Da
vis has arrived from San Francisco as
one of the attorneys for the claimants
to represent tliem at tho taking of tes
timony, which was begun today by
Clerk W. D. Mallng of the United Statca
The caption ot tho petition Is as follows:-
"In life Couvt of Claims. Oc
tober Term. 1001. Ernest J. Cotton,
Charles i:. Cotton and James II. Agas
slz, partners, trading as Cotton Ilroth-
crs & Company, vs. The United States.
Wm. U. Matthews, attorney for claim
ants; Charles A. Kclgwlu, of counsel.
Petition filed February 4, 100:'."
Petitioners state that they are brldga
builders and general contractors nt
Oakland, California. On March 22,
1899, they entered Into n contract with
the United States, the defendants being
represented by nnd acting through II.
II. Bradford, chief ot the bureau ol
equipment In the Navy department, by
which petitioners agreed nnd under
took to construct two wharves In ths
harbor of Honolulu, and defendant!
agreed In consideration of the construc
tion of said wlu.'.vea to pay petitioners
Certain materials and labor were sub
scquently omitted by agreement. th(
agreed value of which was $2020.60.
The contract was completed with tho
modifications nnd petitioners were paid
the full amount stipulated under the
Dot during the progress nt the work,
the petitioners go on to say, tliey were
-required to do certain work and fur
nish certain material which were not
provided for In the contract. Admiral
Dradford had advised that no vailing
was required on the north side ot wbart
No. 1, yet during the progress of the
work the petitioners wero by the naval
olllcers In chnrgo of tho work required
to build 290 feet ot walling on that side,
which cost 977.SO.
Petitioners bnd sounded tho .water
at the location and made their con
tract with defendants according to the
depths thus ascerialncd; but beforo
work began the United States had by
blasting and dredging increased the
depths from six feet to twenty feet.
This caused an increase In amount of
yellow metal and other sheathing re
quired which made an addition of
$2531.23 to the estimated cost of con
Their contract required tho petition
ers to have skilled labor and machin
ery on the ground not later than Oc
tober 1, 1S99. Defendants were not
ready for the starting of operations at
that time, and for keeping the machin
ery Idlo and paying labor during wait
ing tlmo $1700 la claimed.
Vincent & Helser contracted with
claimants to lay asphalt pavement upon
tho wharves, but wero delayed with
their plant and material through the
unreadiness of defendants at tho timo
stipulated. Thcirby tho claimants bo-
came liable to those subcontractors for

J. D. McVeigh and C. II. Reynolds
returned from the leper settlement last
night. Tho new superintendent had
been shown over the ground of his du
ties by the old one. Doth of them were
met nt the Health olllce by a Bulletin
reporter this morning,
Mr. McVeigh quietly dented the re
ports of his having been met with hos
tile demonstrations Including the pre
sentation with a mars meeting's resolu
tion asking-him to resign tho position
of superintendent beforo he had enter
ed upon Its duties.
"The fact is," said Mr. McVeigh,
"they left mc bravely alone. There had
been n meeting called but It did not
materialize. Tho views that prevailed
were that It wS tlmo enough to show
opposition to me nftcr I had taken hold
and done something objectionable.
"Yes, Dr. French went over with us
and Is taking hold In great form. It
looked as If he were already very popu
lar. The doctor Is working hard, night
as well as day, making calls on those
who need special attention."
Mr. McVeigh said that tho tua-tua
remedy had not thus far received any
adequate test, owing to tho fact that
the supply was dispensed so generally
that It was too soon exhausted to de
termine Its effects. However, a large
number of slips planted by Mr. Rey
nolds were growing well, assuring an
adequate supply In tho near future. AY
The big freighter Alaskan which ar
rived In port yesterday attcrnoon and
which Is now lying at the railroad
wharf, Is giving a practical Illustration
of what can now be done In this clty
wltli regard to rapid handling of freight
with the modern appliances wuli wlili-h
the wharf is furnished .
The two conveyors which are now '
throwing sugar Into the capacious hold
of the freighter have two chutes. Kuril ,
one handles sixteen bags a minute,
which makes thirty-two bags for each
conveyor, or slxt''four bags altogether.
This means that four tons of sugar can
be put Into the hold each minute.
Last night between tho hours of 6
and 11, 800 tons were shipped and to
day the apparatus Is running full blast.
The Alaskan will tuko &000 tons of su'
gar In this port ot which 246 tons aro
