ADA CAME BACK
WITHOUT THE BARK
The little schooner Ada returned to
Honolulu yesterday morning from
French Frigate' Shoals without having
accomplished her purpose of wrecking
the bark Connetnble de Rlchemont.
Cnptnln Welsbarth says however that
he would hae been successful had not
his men gone on u strike and refused
to aid him. The sailors however claim
that the expedition is n foolhardy one
nnd that only a large vessel, properly
equipped, has any hope of Moiling the
wrecked French bark.
Captain Welsbarth Is not discouraged,
however. He left Diver Ellison
with one nmn In the vicinity of the
wreck, in order not to lose ills rights,
nnd he expects to return with another
expedition Saturday. He has a plan
by which he expects to raise the wreck
by hoisting the vessel up nnd off tho
locks. The sailors who went with
Welsbarth claim this scheme Is utterly
absurd for n small vessel like tho Ada.
The salloi s on the Ada s ly that they
v. Ill not return to the shoals and Captain
Welsbarth will have to ship n new
crew. They say nlso that he had a
chance to bring bnck some $3,000 worth
of mnterlal off the wreck which he
didn't do. They had taken off the wire
cable, rope .nnchors nnd tackle, and
tho sailors claim this might have been
easily brought bnck to Honolulu. Tht
Ada lost both her nnchors, one nt Bird
Island, and this wns one of the reasons
why she wns compelled to return. The
w reck Is said to lie in the same position
as It wns when deserted, and later
when seen by Captain Rodman of the
Iroquois. The men say that there is
not the slightest possibility of taking
the vessel out excepting by an experienced
man nnd that the ehnnncl

NEW ENGLAND NOT
THE WHOLE CHEESE
Editor Advertiser: I find this In today's
Advertiser: "The conception of
town meetings originated in the determination
of New England colonists
to govern themselves In all matters
that were municipal." In tho Interest
of historic truth, exception must be
taken to this statement. Township
government is not n conception but
a growth, n political fabric, tho warp
nnd woof of which has been woven on
the "Roaring loom of time."
Robinson, Endicott nnd Bradford
brought It from old England to
New England. It wns bi ought to
Virginia by the founders of that colony
under a sllRhtly different name,
viz.: vestry meeting.' It Is the oldest
form of government known to tho
Indo-European race. It was brought
to England our
In the sixth and seventh
of our era. It was known and
commented upon by Tacitus In his
"Germnnla " It is of very nncicnt
origin in Russia, theie known under
the name of the Mir. Sir Henry
Main, In his "Pilmltlve Society," says
that It was known to the Aryans while
they jet lived In central Asia. The
township was the geogrnphlcnl nrcn of
the clan, and the town meeting was the
open government of tho clan, In full
meeting by the assembled people.
New England Is the orlginntor of many

OLD ARMORY SITE
(Continued trurn Pace 3 )
Government. There being nn appropriation
of JTO.O00 for a new armory
for the National Guard, the Government
desires to obtain the lot In question
for Its site.
The Governor and Superintendent of
Public Works pointed out to General
MucArthur that no great Improvements
had been made to the lot by the Federal
government, while It was an Ideal
location for headquarters for the National
Guard, etc. AVhat was more
Important still was Its central situation
In case of Insurrection. They felt
emboldened In approaching General
MncArthur on tho matter, because he
had urged upon the administration the
great importance of fostering nnd
building up the National Guard of Hawaii
having expressed the opinion thnt
he considered this one of the most Important
positions for a National Guard
General MncArthur was very cordial
indeed In his response to the nppcal.
He said that so far as the Army was
concerned they had a site down on the
waterfront for a Quartermaster's
building, but the bnrrncks building was
the only place they had now. There
were two out-of-town Bites located,
but they were encumbered by leases.
He would be glad to take up the matter
of an exchange of sites with them,,
as they had suggested.
Tho result of the meeting was that
Mr. Hollow ay was directed to prepare
a map or maps of available ground,
and the negotiators will come together
ngaln shortly to find whether or not It
is feasible to effect an exchange.
Governor Carter assured a reporter
that this movement was not Intended
for delay, as the administration was
nnxlous to provide a suitable armory
for tho N. G. H. It was believed,
however that the old site was the best
In every way and if it can be recovered
by the Territory considerable expense
would be saved when economy was so

STOP A LEAK
Editor Advertiser: Being a taxpayer
and as such in favor of an economic
administration, more so as our treasury
Is not In a too flourishing
and necessary public improvements
are retarded 011 nil sides by
the lack of funds, I consider it fair
and Just that delinquent tuxpajers
should be made to their taxes, and
no partiality or lenie'ney shown to any
one, except In stringent cases for good
and sufficient lea&ons, and thus made
to contribute their pro rata to the sustenance
of the government.
These are evidently the views of our
tax cojlector, Judging from the number
of suits dailj' filed in our courts against
delinquents, chronic and otherwise, a
pioeeedlng which meets the full approval
of the people, for the money is
needed and should be collected, but on
the best and cheapest plan, sd as to
make the jleld as large as possible.
If this be done there can be no kick
from but I doubt that such is
the case, If the attorney representing
the government receives 5 per cent
commission on all monejs collected by
him, as I am creditably Informed, and
as the delinquent taxes are bald to
amount to $100,000 or even more It will
leadlly be seen that the attorney
draws a fee of about $5000 to $6000 for
about one or two months fcerviees, a
good enough pay for half a dozen
in these hard times.
It may be argued that not all Judgments
will realize, but as taxes constitute
a preferred claim they musst be
paid it the person sued has nnj thing
at all to pay with, and we all know-that
taxes, as a lule, are levied on
The Government's nttorney In this
matter must either lank far above the
average In the profession, or have a
pull with the government, unknown to
the general public, to be entitled to
such a snap, for I wuuant that for
one-half of his lemuneration the best
lawjer In the Teriltory will take the
Job and make good out of It.
If thefce matteis fall to the duties of

H. P. Stlpp of Hackfeld & Co., a German
who Is now a citizen of the Unite J
States, and who participated In the
war with Spain, contradicts certain of
the statements made General Mac-Arthur
relative to the Germans.
Mr. Stlpp, who was a member of Iho
Eighth New York Volunteers during
the Spanish war, called at the Advertiser
office jesterday and made the
"I wish to deny emphatically the
statement mnde by General MacArthur
that there were 'few Germans In the
American army In the war with Spain,
so few, Indeed, that the presence of u
German was noted ns a rare occurrence.'
"When the Spanish war broke out
the German Grand Army In New York
offered to raise three regiments of a
thousand men each for service. Thesa
regiments were recruited and In April,
1898, were offered for servlc, but the
President replied that the volunteers
could not be then nccepted, although
they might be mustered In later. 'J he
men In these regiments then obtained
permission from their officers to enlist
In regiments of United States Volunteers
already accepted, and many of
them Joined the Eighth, Ninth,
Twelfth and New York
Volunteers. The Volunteers,

In Brookljn, also was nearly half

MEN IN HAWAII
TRAINED TO ARMS
Colonel A. Mackenzie, general staff,
U. S. A., by letter requested Col. J. "W.
Jones, commanding the National Guard
of Hawaii, to furnish him with a statement
of the probable number of men
trained for military service li the Territory
of Haw-all who might be available
In case of need. .
Colonel Jones in stated that 2000
men could be raised who have had
some Instruction In the United States
infantry drill regulations, and nn additional
GOO could be raised composed
prlnelpallj' of Havvalians.
From January 17, 1S93, to date. Col.
Jones stated, there had been 2818 men
enlisted In the N. G. H., more than
2C0O df them on the Island of Oahu,
with services averaging three years.
In 1SDS the armed forces of the Republic
of Hawaii National Guard,
Sharpshooters and Citizens- Guard
numbered 1200, of which about fifty per
cent were Hawnilans.
Such a force, the N. G. II. commander
said, could be readily organized and
quickly trained, and would be reliable
In the presence of an enemy. The percentage
of Havvalians would be thirty-five
to fifty in a total strength of 2000
Col. Jones recommended for the militia
force of Hawaii the establishing of
an ordnance depot with the necessary
equipments, standard service rifles,
field pieces and machine guns.
The available meat supply of the
Territory is stated by islands, leaving
out Nllhnu, to Col. Mackenzie, the totals
being 100,000 sheep and 107.SOO cattle.
IN LOCAL TRADE
The American-Hawaiian Steamship
Co. has permanently withdrawn the
freighter Nebrnskan from the local
trade and hereafter the Nevadan will
be depend d upon to take enre of all
the carrying business of the company
between Honolulu and San Francisco.
No reason for tho change Is given In
tho letter received yesterday by Agent
Morse, but the order was anticipated
as the Nebraskan had been temporarily
withdrawn some time ago.
The Nevadan has been put on a regular
monthly schedule. She leaves
San Francisco for Honolulu December
18th, then again on January 19th, February
19th, and March 22d. She will
make her usual trips to Kahului.
The Nebraskan will however be here
In February to load sugar for New
York, and hereafter will bo on the
regular around tho Horn run. She is
now undergoing slight repairs and her
tanks are being enlarged so that ehe
will be able to carry enough oil on
her long trip, without the necessity of
stopping en route for fuel.
The American Is now on the way
to Honolulu and Kahului from the
Sound, with n cargo ot merchandise.
The Hawaiian will follow her on Jan-'
unry first nnd the Nebraskan In February.
The Alaskan Is scheduled to
sail from New York for Honolulu via
San Francisco, January 1st.
A curious instance of the Celestial
"tricks that are vnln" came before tho
Board of Health at its weekly meeting
afternoon, which was
attended by Dr. C. B. Cooper, president;
Fred C. Smith, jr. P. Robinson,
Dr. W, H. Mays, and B.C. Winston,
members; Dr. J. S. B. Prntt, chief
health officer; C. Charlock, secretary;
and Miss Mae Weir, stenographer.
Edmund P. Dole, attorney, appeared
on behalf of the Chinese cook employed
by Judge Dole who had got himself
pinched bj self-contradiction. This
Chinaman became the father of a child
born here, whose birth he neglected to
register within the statutory time.
When he wanted a passport to go to
China with the child it became necessary
to produce a certificate of the
child's birth at the Secretary of the
Territory's offlce. This must be had
from the Registrar of the Board of
Health, but the child's birth has to be
To avoid the penalty of being behind
time with the registration tho
father post-dated the birth of the
child. As however, he gave the true
dnte at the Secretary's office, there was
a conlllct between that and the registered
date shown In the certificate.
Mr. Dole applied to the Board for
the man's relief nnd It was voted to
allow him to register the birth correctly
and give him a certificate.
QUESTION OF CEMETERIES.
The following letter from the city
sanitary officer was read:
"Gentlemen: Permit me once ngaln
to bring up the question of either closing
the cemeteries within the city limits
to further burials, or of so regulating
them that the present very
and dangerous practices be stopped.
'"I felt that hasty action should not
be taken and that the different keepers
should be allowed to remedy tho
conditions existing ns far as lay In
their power, and that the organizations
controlling these cemeteries should be
nllowed to take the Initiative and of
their own accord to close at lqast the
crowded pottlons of their holdings, and "
for thnt reason they have been allowed
to go ahead and we have seen to it
that all graves were at least the required
depth of six feet and that the
burial was made at that depth.
"A record has been kept of each Interment
since the first of September,
showing each case out
of the ordinal y has happened. I find
that In this time cdtfius
have been disturbed, some actually
chopped In two nnd part of the remains
reburied beneath the new one. Some
of the cemeteries are so low that when
graves are dug to six feet, the coffin
will be entirely submerged In water.
This has happened not only once but
five times In three months, and no
move hns been made on the part of the
organizations controlling these burying
grounds to stop it.
"A which to far has not
been brought before the Board as a
place necessary to be closed Is the native
Piotestnnt plot nt Knllhi,
Two burials havo lately
been made nt this place and In each
case it took two full to blast a
grave out of the rock. As all
know, unless soiqe means Is taken to
arrest decomposition changes In the
this Is too long for it to
remnln nbove ground.
"Trusting that the Board will see fit
to take some action In this matter, I
"C. H. TRACY,
Sanitary Officer and Inspector of
President Cooper remarked that the
question of cemeteries had been before
the Board for a long time. It did not
seem to be advanced from ,what It was
fleveral months ngo. He thought the
matter should bo referred to a committee
to ascertain If something definite
could not be done.
On motion the suggestion was adopted
and the president appointed Dr.
Mays, Mr. Robinson and Attorney
General Andrews as the committee.
