NEW YOHK. Oct. 8. Admiral

cngrucs mid the rcmnlnlng thirty
miles In tho cnli of No. 34ii0, a 22
ton steam locomotive.
Admiral Scjmour had expressed a
desire to sco what an American lo
comotlvo could do, nnd as soon as
tho switches and low speed signs of
tho city wero left hchlnd, linglnoor
"Hill" Klley gave No. 3450 a chance
to display her proweis. The admiral
watched tlio throttle open wider nnd
wider until on a clear stretch of
track near Ostlnlng, tho pointer of
tho speed dial mounted to eighty
four miles nn hour and tho heavy
train whirled over a inllo of rail In
a fraction less than 43 seconds.
The admiral's trip was tho out

hy J. Plerpont Morgan at one of the
Hudson-rulton functions last 'week,
Tho two had been discussing tlio
comparative speed ot ships nnd lo
comotives, "lleforo Jnu leavo us,"
(.aid Mr. Morgan, "you should (alio

Tlio admiral's many engagements
prevented his making tho suggested
tilp until today.
A half dozen members of tho ad
miral's staff and olllcers of tho Now
York Central ifccompanled tho Ilrit

civilian clothes. Admiral Seymour
was very much Interested In tho

Admiral Seymour returned from
Osslnlng nt onco by n special train.
Tonight ho received tho fnrowclls
of his New York hosts and sent a
letter to Major McClellan thanking
him officially for tho courtesies ex

WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. IB.
Treating of every branch of the
army, the animal report of Inspector
General C. A. Gnrllngton, mado pub
lic todnj-, Is devoted to careful com
ment on existing conditions, tome of
which are criticised, wherenB others
nro praised. Gencrallj"spe.iklng, tho
belief is expressed that tho army is
greatly in need of nn Increase, In 111
fan try nnd Held nitlllory nnd of 10
organization ot the cavalry nnd the
opinion Is advanced that legislation
tn this end would be facilitated by
quartering tlio troops whero thoy
would como ir,oio Into contact with
Increase in Irregularities.
An Increase ot about 40 per cent
In defects rind Irregularities was 10
portcd for each post during tho last
year. Tho liregulailtles and defi
ciencies nro, however, In tho blunt
ly enpietsed opinion of Gen. Gar
llngtou, such as may bo reduced If
officials would mako a rcisonablo ef
fort to mustor the regulations and
exorclso good common sense.
A SECTION able to nroduce such a variety of tropical articles as may be produced in the Hawa
iian Islands, and having free access to a market demanding such enormous quantities of
- - those various articles as does the market of the United States, ought to become not merely
prosperous, as it already is, but one of the most prosperous and perhaps the most prosper,
ous of all the tropical communities of the world. With the power to prcduce sugar, of wliich
the, United States imports more than qne hundred million dollars' worth a year; with the power to pro
duce coffee, of which we import from seventy-five millions to one hundred million dollars' worth annually:
with the power to Rrow rubber, of which we import fifty million dollars' worth annually; with the power
to produce tropical fruits, of which we import thirty-five million dollars' worth annually; with the power
to produce sisal, of which we import fifteen million dollars' worth annually; ariS with t'Ke power to pro
duce cocoa, of which we import nearly ten million dollars' worth annually, the po'ssibilitits of increased pros
perity in Hawaii seem to me very great." 0. P. Austin, Chief of Bureau of Statistics, Department of Com.
merce and Labor.
The report deals with the problem
of absenteeism of officers fiom thc,lr
command, thero being complaint
from all direction. It In said, that thn
i service Is crippled by this practice.
Gen. Gnrllngton says It should bo de
termined whether tho vnluablo ser
vices rendered tho government by
ufficcrs In certain lines ot detached
I duty compensatu for loss of efficiency"
in their own organizations because
I of their absenco nnd for tho discon
tent of officers who hno to perform
I tho additional duty without moio
pay, wlillo those absent frciiuently
iccelve extra emolument.
Roosevelt Tests Are Criticised.
In a chapter devoted to tho an
nual physical tests Introduced nt tlio,
direction of President Kooscvclt Gen.
Garllngton makes tho statement
that a rulo requiring each officer to
tnko exercise commensurato with his
duties nnd age during tho entire
jenr would accomplish the purpose
sought by Mr. Hoosevolt's orders bet
ter than the plan'now followed.
Tho midshipmen rlflo team, which,
under tho nillng of Lieut. Col. Hub
ert K. Kvans, Cth Inf., commanding
at tho Camp l'erry National Illllo
Meet, was excluded ns disqualified
becauso of a violation of tho regu
lations with regard to rapid firing
at L'OO yards and In skirmish firing,
will make an appeal to the National
Klllo Hoard, which meets next Jnn
uarj. Thero Is no foundation what
ever for tho virulent nnd malicious
attacks mado by somo newspapers
upon tho members of tho midship
men team for their course of action
nt Camp Pcrrj What occurred wnB
purely u technical error, and It has
been commented upon In several offi
cial reports by Army and Navy offi
cers, who tako that view of tho mnt
tcr. Tho midshipmen would have
had about sixth placo, whereas dis
qualification placed them nt the foot
ot tho list. It tho board should act
favorably on tholr appeal they would
go back to about tell tenth place.
A novel nnd Ingenious plan for
barracks and quarters In tropical
and outlying Army posts Is under
consideration. Tho Idea Is .to con
'stiuct these buildings in a large
qundrnngle, the buildings to be
mado of concrete, thrco stories high,
with the colonel's nnd lieutenant
colonel's quarters nt tho corners, tho
Hold officers' at the center of the
liriuclpal facades, and the bmaller
apartments between, with the bach
elor qunrtcrs adjoining the barracks.
The general depth of tho structuro
Is proposed lo bo thirty feet nnd the
dimensions of tho principal quar
ters Is thlity by forty feet, thoo of
tho colonel nnd lieutenant colonel,
however, being 5C by G5 feet on the
outer face, In order lo glvo size
enough to sccuro adequate light and
air on the Inner side of tho quad
rangle. Tho court within the offi
cers' quarters is to ho 293 feet by
H23 -eel. Tho rear sldo of tlio
qiiadriinglo Is nllotted to quarters
fur tho men, nnd nn extension ot tho
building enclosing another quadran
gle lo tho i ear affoids sufficient bnr
i neks and storerooms. Tho plan Is
wholly tcnlntivo at present, and, II
approved, will bo first tried probably
Orders hnvo been Issued during
tho past weok fer tho transportation

non-commissioned officers who have
been for the past two months under

providing for such service. The luw
provides for tho allotment of 11G
non-commissioned officers of tho Ke
gularArmy for duty with the Na

CCASIONALLY it is necessary for us to read the statements of outsiders to appreciate the value
of- our opportunities. In the above statement of Hon. H. F. Austin wc learn of the possibilities
of our agricultural and commercial interests, which means n greater Honolulu, the natural dis
tributing point and commercial center of our islands.
When you consider our agricultural, commercial and military possibilities, you must ad
mit that Honolulu will some day become a great city, and at the present rate of increate she will double
her population in the near future. Then when you consider her unlimited residential area and our present
real estate values, you will find that you cannot make a better investment than the purchase of property
in our NEW SELECT RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT at KAIMUKI. If you purchase one or more of these lots
and place your deed away for one or two years you will find yourself in possession of a valuable piece of
property that will be worth several times the amount you nav for it. In this New Select District and
this Ideal Location with newly improved streets and such a delightful and healthy climate wc are offering
lots with an area of 11,250 square feet upon liberal installment terms at $500,00 for corner lots and $400.00
for inside lots. These lots some day will be worth $2,000,00 each, and we cannot suggest a better way
for you to employ your savings.
