decided upon for tho release of over
six bundled Russian Immigrants now
ut Quarantine Island, und It will be
the date from which ten dajs of

begin to run.
A conference was held this morn

Perelstrous made uu emphatic denial
of the, statements tharv tho" HuisUns
have been misled and brought 10
work on tho sugar plantations ot

Governor t-'rear declared that ac
cording to the statements of Perel
strous, Instead of any effort or mis
representation being required to se
cure Immigrants, Atkinson and Pe
relstrous were besieged by hundreds
who deshed the opportunity of com
ing to Hawaii.
It is expected that Monday will
result In definite developments as
far as the Russian situation Is con

ot Ills visit to Quariiiitlno Island

must either accept work of some
kind within ten dajs of their release
