Customs Meji However
Pared 111 In Office
When the new Alnkca-street wharf
was thrown open to the public for
the first time yesterday and uti
lised by the Hamburg-Amerlcun
liner Cleveland for the landing or
her six hundred and fifty round-the-world
tourists, and also the Pacific
Mall steamer Manchuria, which left
over four hundred passengers at Ho
nolulu, It wub fittingly demonstrated
that the wharf left little to be de
sired in equipment and adaptability
for the speedy and convenient hand
ling of passengers and freight.
While the structure Is still In the
hands of the builders, Its temporary
use on Sundny, at which time over
a thousand passengers made use of
Its conveniences, was looked upon as
a move In the right direction.
The Cleveland entered the harbor
drawing n little ovor twenty-eight
feet and came alongside the wharf
with the greatest ease and dispatch.

.thirty1 feet, because of her large Ho

mission coming from Captain Demp

disappointment underlying his re
marks. Captain Dempwolf, his officers and
soyeral hundred attaches of the Ger

throughout the greater part of yes

They thronged the beach resorts and
frequented the downtown streets.
