the subject Is so delicate, they evi
dently had not flrmlv established
their respective statuses, as editors
of this one Ilulletln, beforehand. At
times It looked to the deck-hand as
though some of the undisciplined and
Insubordinate under-edltors were
running riot In their efforts to be
thankful. It looked very much Uko a
case of too many rooks. For In
stance, the flagrant manner In which
tho longitudinal Mr. Penny, who was

From the standpoint of a court re

ern California edition of tho Hulletln
was a wonder. The court news was
very brief and to the ixilnt. No un
necessary details wero given and yet
tlio news was complete. The court
man also did a small amount of other
work which would not romo In his
Jurisdiction on the ordinary paper,
writing a few of the heads und also

Tho expeditious manner in which

redouble our efforts In our 48-hour

Mathews a Hot One
On tha Waterfront Beat.
J. I,. Mathews, tha waterfront re
porter for the special edition ot the
ICvenlng Hulletln Issued by tho Cali
fornia editors last Thursday, Is a red
hoi exponent of the efficacy of tho
glad-hand. In one day's work along
the waterfront he Bhook hands with

Mathews bad been on board five min

In ;thelr brains, he had It before he

lo protect herself against the dower
Interest of Mrs. Parker, .as she did
not sign the deed. However, It Is
provided that this 1 50,000 shall bear
Interest at the rate of 6 per cent, a
year. The.same Is tha case with all
the other deferred payments.
"The mortgages are -estimated to
amount to about $270,000. As a con
sequence Colonel Parker makes $175,

ed." Breckons was considerably amused
at the way In which tho purpose of
tho expedition had been kept secret,
until tho Bulletin's exclusive wireless
message put straight the erroneous
conjectures which tho public had been
Indulging In until its appearance In
yesterday's first edition gave the
first ami only news ot tho big deal.
The misleading character of the
start was n featuro which had been
provided on purpose, nnd the' taking
along of Marshal Hendry was the
studied masterstroke of genius
which was to mislead, as was Intend
ed, those who attempted to guess
What tho purpose of the mysterious
charter jynat Breckons explained
that Ilia purpose 'of (cee'plhg the trip
secret was to prevent at reopening,
through Injunction or otherwise, as
as formerly been tho case, of tho
long drawn-out litigation; now that a
conclusion was .In sight which was
satisfactory in all 'the parties'.
From the deed from Col. Sam Par
ker' to Annlo T. K. Parker, now on
fllol I nthe secord ofllca, the fojlowtng
data relating to this big deal are gath-,
A decree by Judge Matthcwman or
dered that within ten days a deed of
partition should bo executed by Bam
Parker and Annlu T. K. Parker, by
her guardian, A. W. Carter.
The deed shows that Annlo T. K.
Parker, acting by Av W. Carter, In
consideration of a cdnvcyanco mado
by Samuel Parker to her and of one
dollar, grants to Samuel Parker all ot
the homestead premises at Mana, Dis
trict ot Hamakua, being the house oc
cupied as a homo by S. P., and the
lot together with 250 acres of land
surrounding tbol lot, to bo measured
oft so us to make the houso as near
the center as possible.
Tho Indenture further wltnesseth
that Samuel Parker, In pursuance of
Iho decreo ot partition and the con
veyance before made Uy Annie T; K.
Parker to him. and lir consideration
of $000,000 paid and agreed to bo paid
to or on account of him, at the times
and subject to the conditions and
limitations In the decree, tho receipt
of 50,000 as first payment being ac
knowledged, does grant, bargain, sell,
convoy and lellver to Annlo T, K.
Parker all of the property, real, per
sonal and mixed, whether standing
In tho nam- of Samuel i Parker, Annie
T. K, Parker or bo li. or In trust tor
either of them, unjd In connection
with, lying within or forming any
part ot the Parker Hanch, Including
all lands, tenements, hereditaments,
cattle, sheep, horses, llvo stock and
personal property described In the
plaintiff's bill ot complaint, etc.
Then the deed excepts and reserves
to Samuel Parker tho following prop
erties: 1. The homestead. 2. Fifteen
acres to be selected by S. P, from tho
Claude Jones lot within the ahupuaa
ot Walkoloa, to be located on the Ko

dock was 'Crossing the Atlantic, going
through the Mediterranean and thn
Indian seas and, making her slow way
lo the East. He gives an Interesting
account of this accomplishment of
American enterprise nnd pluck, 'the
successful passage through the Sues
Canal, Mr. Isaacs says, was made In
four days and a halt. Instead of the
anticipated seven days. When tho
Dewey arrived at tho canal, tweuty
sea captains who wero thera strongly
advised against trying to tnko her
through until after the monsoon sea
son had passed. They said that to
do so before would lid nothing 'less
than foolhardy, and predicted all
sorts of disasters It tho attempt were
made In the faco ot their advice. But
It was mode, and without any mis
hap. Tho Dewey went through and Is
now at her destination..
