r- Indefinitely In ,
For the first time in over two
years, the United States Army trans
port Crook, placed in temporary com
mission and dispatched from San
Francisco for Manila via Honolulu,
has again paid a visit to this port.
Tht transport Crook arrived at
Honolulu shortly aftar 9 o'clock last
night, after a slow but rather un
eventful passage dowm from tho
Tho Crook has been lying up at
San Francisco since July, 1908. She
was at one tlmo on the regular
route, carrying troops and supplies
between the Coast and the Philip
pines, but owing to her small cabin
passenger and troop accommodation
the vessel was substituted by larger
gnd more speedy' vessels.
The Crook will proceed to Manila
direct, it being the Intention of the
quartermaster's department to cut'
nut Guam on the present voyage.
It Is expected that tho transport
will sail for the Philippines tomor
row night. She Is now lying at the
Channel wharf, where one thousand
tons of coal aro going Into tho
bunkers, while ono hundred and fifty
tons of quartermaster supplies and
personal effects of tb,e officers and
men now stationed at the various
army posts of Hawaii are being dis
charged. Throo passengers will bo taken
from Honolulu to the Philippines,
theyJielng army officers.
A mainland mall amounting to
twq hundred and fifty sacks arrived
by tho transport. Tho vessel Is
carrying two hundred marines and
a number of quartermaBtor depart
ment clerks and employes to Ma
nila. While not authentically stated, It
Is believed that the Crook will again
go out of commission upon arrival at
