The nposlasy of Abraham Fernandez,
who yeslerday dercended from the ear
of the Democrats to thn bosom of the
Homo Itutero, Is tho subject of consid
erable discission lu political circles to
day. Among Hepiibllcnns his candidacy
on tho Homo Ilulo ticket la not looked
upon with sorrow. Politicians say that
what W. W. Harris bad most to fear
was tho anti-Sam Johnson faction
which would have made Frank Harvey
n dangerous rival for him had ho and
Harris been olcino In tho field. Now,
however, that Fernandez Is also In tlia
game. It Is figured that ho will take n
number uf the votes which would oth
erwise luivo been Frank Harvey's ror
nln Bhare, and that therefore Harris
c hain.es for election luivo been mado
Tho Democrats profess to look upon
Hie fall of llnither Fernandez with sor
inw rather than with anger. "Slinnkn"
Mossninn, who Is now tho practical
leader of the Democratic campaign, said
this morning that lie bud always re
garded Fernandez ns n weak sister,
who wns but lukownrm In Ills alleglunce
to the causa of Democracy, John Km
ineluth said philosophically that tho
party was better without suchmen ua
forsook tho party when they thought
they hud a grievance, lrank Harvey
let It bo known that In spite of nil he
still regarded Fernandez an bis frleua,
although tho gentlo Mormon elder hud
not been particularly sparing In lilt
references to llnrvoy. Harvey kaya
that ho was In Iho bauds of his friends,
willing to tuk.; any placo on the ticket
which they wauled to date him In,
nnd that his taking of Iho place of
Hupcrvlsor-nt-!.argc) was not his wor.k.
but that ot tho convention, l'rendm
gast said lather Indignantly that Fer
nandez hud no right to say that tho
Democrats hail thrown him down. It
was true that they bad given Harvey
Iho placo of Pupcj-vlHor-at-l.argf-, on
which Fenandez hud cast sheep's eyes,
but they hud aho nominated Fernandez
for n district siipnrvleorslilp and tlila

There hnva been no new develop'

she Is on so lightly that sho is almost
Moating and It will bo no trouble to take
her off when things nro In rcudlncus.
Woik Is now going on shifting the; po
sition of boilers and heavy machinery
so that the ship will nut be top-heavy
nnd In danger of turning turtle.
The leak Is not regarded ns at all
Rcrlous and thn pumps will have no
llfllculty In Inking out the water that
comes In. '
The Ironuols came In latt night, to
remain until' Captain Poabody Is ready
to have a pull ninde. She will probably
go out again next Friday morning. If
present plans aro carried Into effect.
The Manning and lwalani arc still will,
the Hhcrldaii, ns la tbo transport Un

at this time. The vessel went from
hero to Yokohama, whero she was

Squadron, under command of Admir

orders wcro received for tho fleet to
Ball Immediately for Honolulu. Tho
fleet was hero on Christmas Day,
1903. The stny was not long, but long
enough for the people of Honolulu to
get acquainted with the Wisconsin
nnd her officers nnd men, so that they
aro not atrangcrs as they return to
day. Trouble wan Imminent between Rus
sia and Japan, nnd on December 29
tho fleet sailed again for the Asiatic
station, where thn vessels wero wit
nesses of a part of the struggle be
tween thoso Powers. At Manila Cap
tain Sebree, who had brought the ship
from Dremerto'n, turned over the com
