Practice In Coaling At

Tho matter of coaling tho fleet whllo
It is in this port Is attracting a goo If
deal of attention, as it Is felt that thoi
amount of Interest which tho pooplo
will rhow will bo In some manner af
fected by this featuro of tho stay of
tho fleet In tho Islands. Tho specula
tion Is'naturnlly more nctlvo on tho
waterfront than at any other place.
The latest on the matter comes from
nn unofficial source, In an Interview
with a prominent citizen today. "Tho
ships will probably bo largoly coaled
here," ho said, "but soma of them
ulso may be coaled outsldo. Tho pur
pose of this would be to give tho col'
Hers a (ryout In ths work of coaling nt
sen, though I think tho place for It
would bo off Molok.il, or between this
.Island and Molokal,"
"What do ou think of tho matter
of their going to Maul?" was nsked.
"1 think thero Is nothing In It," ho
It is generally supposed that at ono
tlmo and another all of tho ships will
come Into this harbor. That they will
all bo In at once, honover, Is a matter
of some doubt. A fleet of that slzo
would rather fill things up In the har
bor, It Is thought.
