OBBEBED TO HONOLULU FROM
roEOE NOW IK PHILIPPINE
A special dispatch from Washington:
to the San Francisco Examiner, o April
-4, announces tbat another regiment hns
been ordered to Honolulu from tlio
Tlio dispatch reads:
"Making ready to concentrate its
entire mobile forco along tlio soutliorn
border, the war department today ordered
three completo regiments now in
the Philippines to hurry with nil possible
BDced back to the United States.
These regiments aTC in addition to tho
Fourteenth Cavalry, now on tho sea
homeward bound from tho Orient.
"Two of the regiments ordered" homo
today are cnvnlry and ono is infantry.
Tfpon their arrival at Snn Francisco
tho cavalry will proceed to Port Clark
and Port Mcintosh. Tho infantry will
hasten to San Antonio. A fifth regiment
now in the Philippines, was
to Hawaii and informed that it
must arrive at that station heforo tho
first of May.
"Tho donartnient of state today ad
mitted the almost incredible fact that
it is nctnnlly treating with tho Mex
ican ambassador on tho demand of
Mexico that the United States Bliall
pay duty on the arms consigned to tho
American ambassador nt Mexico City
for tho protection of Amorican citizens
whom tho Madero government admits
it cannot protect.
Government Is Taxed.
"This putB tho American government
in the amazing position of being taxed
for the privilege of preventing its own
citizens from being murdored in a law-loss
country. And what is Btill more
amazing, tho state department is show
ing decided symptoms of capitulating
to Mexico's demands.
"In response to an appeal from Gov
ernor Colquitt of Texas that former
Policeman Roberts of El Paso, who is
held a prisoner by tho insurrcctors in
Mexico, bo released, the stato depart
ment began a Iceole attempt today to
unwind red tape.
"It contended that if it made a pres
cntation to the insurrectos to release
him. it would thereby recognize their
belligerency, which it does not intend
to uo. At tnc same timo tno aonart
merit realizes the futility of appeal to
Madero, who is unable to release his
own men held prisoners by the revolu
tionary forces. In the meantime Roberts
has been acquitted by a rebel
court martial on charges of being a
spy and will bo rclnnscd.

Senate Wants Facts,
"Exorcssinir oxtrcme dissatisfaction
with the manner in which tho state
department has permitted Japan to pull
tno wool over its eyes as to her inten
tions in Magdalcna bay, a member of
the foreign relations committee said today
that tho object of tho Lodge
, ution is to take the entiro problem out
of the hands of the department and of
the President and invest it in the sen
"So anxious was the foreign relations
committee to accomplish its object that
the President was not apprised that
uch a resolution was contemplated
ontu attcr it nad been introduced and
"If President Taft was not informed
by the stato department that on Tuesday,
when tho Lodcro resolution was
introduced, a Japanese syndicate was
actively engaged in negotiating for a
vast tract of land along Magdalcna
oar, no win be made awaro of that
fact tomorrow when Senator Lodge
cans at tno wmtc jiouso.
"Tlio sentiment entertained at tho
White House for the senator since the

RESCUE OE SWIMMER
Kalua, a Hawaiian swimmer, became
a hero for an attempted rescue at Honomu,
Hawaii, April 2.' The nows of
it reached Honolulu yesterday, although
tho swimmer's bravery has
been dUcussed in many a homo throughout
the Honomu district ever since tho
day ho attempted to savo a young
Spaniard from drowning.
The Spanish youth, whoso name is
act disclosed, made a bet that ho could
swim to ono of the Honomu Sugar
Company's lauding buoys and return.
Tho stake was a gallon of wine.
The pea is treacherous at Honomu
and tho waves run high. Into tho
foaming surf and tho perilous undertow
the Spaniard forged, reaching tho buoy
in safety. His friends on tho alioro
watched breathlessly. The young swim,
mer did not begin the return trip but
clung to the buoy making signs of distress.
Kalua offered to attempt a rescue.
He is a strong swimmer, but his friends
urged him not to go into tho water
on what seemed a hopelesB task. Kalua
icraisted and thoy tied a rope
around bis Lody. With it ho breasted
tho breakers and reached the buoy.
Darkness had descended. Tho men on
aliore could not make out tho two swim-more
clearly. They pulled in on tho
rope but ouly Kalua returned with it,
Summons had been sent to Hilo in
tho mean time, for a launch. It arrived
two or three hours later and effected
a rescue of the 8panish lad. The

. WHAT KUHIQ TOLD
MUST SHOW WASinNQTON THAT
PEOPLE BACK- CHARGES
Stephen Desha continues to impress
upon his political flock tho fact that
tho couvontion tomorrow is to demonstrate
to tho administration at Washington
that the Republican voters of
Hawaii aro back of and endorse all
that Kuhio, Asbford and Kinney hnvo
said against the Governor and tho sugar
planters of tho Islands. At a meeting
of tho Hilo delegates, called by David
Ewaliko in Hilo Wednesday, tho political
parson repeated what ho had
been told by Kuhio 1n tho Kuhio-
Desha letter and afterwards told by
word of mouth, tho wholo tenor of
which was that now tho Hawaiians
must comblno to back tho Prince
against tho haole Governor and tho
Although politics has of late mndo
somo very strange bed-follows in Hilo,
this mooting called by the labor 'union
leader and Democratic boss, for tho
purpose of getting a public expression
from tho Republican delegates was sum
cicntly anomalous to create
blc comment and amusement in tho Big
The meeting was a scmipublic affair,
and, being antiadministratlon in its
sentiment, it was fairly enthusiastic.
Vhilo John Kealoha acted as presiding
officer, in his capacity of president of
tho Hilo labor union branch, David
Ewaliko was, as usual, tho power be
hind tho throne and not so very far
Bcors, Bohnenberg, Osorio, Hose,
Cabrinua and Namnnoo all testified to
their loyalty to Kuhio and the labor
union. Then Desha exhorted.
Ho remarked that, at tho recent prim-
ary election, he himself had probably
been tlio main bone of contention, par
ticularly as tho "other element" had
used all its influonco to down him. He
had, however, liko a seasoned veteran,
stood through their attacks, and ho
had, through tho support of Ewaliko
and tho labor union, secured tho
coveted nomination. If only the labor
element would stick together in tho
future, it could vanquish all its opponents,
said Desha. It was doing so
on the mainland.
Tho election of a Kuhio delegation
snowed that tho Hawaiians had then
privileges at heart, as Kuhio had told
him that this was their only chance.
If tho victory over Frear was won, it
would show to the 'administration at
Washington that Kuhio was. right in
his charges against tho Governor.
Hereafter tho Hawaiians and the
Portuguese must pull together, as tho
election just past had shown what they
could accomplish when they worked in
Tho speaker expressed surprise that
tho interests had used money so freely
in tno country districts, and he was
sorry to sco tho Hawaiians in these
places voting for the plantation reo
pie, although they were the very ones
wno nad been lucking about the home
stead policy of the government. On
the other hand, tho Hawaiians 'in the
city, though not themselves personally
concerned with homestead matters, had
shown their interest in tho question by
giving tno victory to tno uilno men.
Homo Eulor for 'Kuhio.
Pacheco was called on to speak. He
said that although ho was a Homo
Ruler, ho felt that it was his duty to
help elect tho Kuhio delegates, as Kuhio
had been working in tho interests
of tho homesteaders. Pacheco had no
use for Frear or his administration, and
ho hoped that at the next election all
the former Republican votes would bo
thrown to tho Homo Rule candidates.
Paahao, tho well known Democrat,
expressed tho wish that Holstein would
bo soloctcd as Hawaii's delegate to
Chicago, and that Osorio be chosen as
Ins alternate. He urged tho delegation
to work for this end, and was greeted
with loud applause.
Ewaliko closed tho meeting with a
short speech, in which he called attention
to the reception which had been
given Gompers during his recent visit
to tho West. Tlio labobring men on
tho mainland had dono much towards
bettering their conditions by taking an
active interest in public affairs, said
Ewaliko, and thoso on tho Islands
should follow their example.

having been abstracted by somo bold
and bad burglar while tho jailer was
playing with the angels of dreamland.
The case of the deputy sheriff was
more spectacular. At about half-past
four last Wednesday, ono of tho two
smaller Fetter girls was awakened when
her mosquito net was lifted By a person
who peered into tho bed. Tho girl
awakened her sister, who slept in tho

goods bought by tho spendthrift, plus
two dollars in coin which remained in

grounds for suspicion developed in a
