yesterday. "Whilo ho has been to

besides his own office, that of
commissioner of lands and uf agriculture,

other official positions as well, but tho
rearrangement mado by tho last legislature

Mr. Campbell's position in tho government,

NOT COMPLAIN, IS
"Tkero is not much to bo
said regarding the action "of tho
convention," said Governor
Frear, yesterday afternoon, "tho
results wero satisfactory. I don 't
beo that tho side that lost can
havo much to complain of on tho
part of tho other sido outside of
a very generous proposition of
compromise in tlio interests of

There was nothing to be done
except what was done. Tho main
object of tho convention was to
elect delegates instructed to voto
for tho nomination of President
Taft at Chicago, Of this, I think,
there was never any doubt."

of tlio Interior Fisher announced
after tho cabinet meeting today, ns has
already been cabled to Tho Advertiser,
that ho would leave hero about tho
middles of April for Honolulu to conduct
an investigation of tlio case of
Governor Frcar, ns pertains to charges
by Delegate Knlanianaoio ana icinurcu

San Francisco this afternoon, making
reservation on tho steamer which sails
from there April 20. no stntcs, however,
that lio Is not absolutely certnln
of being able to make that steamor.
He thought it possiblo ho might havo
to cancel that reservation and mako ft
later ono. However, ho expects to bo
in Honolulu sometime Into in April or
early in Mny.

fully nnd without qualification the

that tho President had

Thcro has beon studied effort in somo
quarters at Wnshlngton to provont any
confirmation of tho President's

officials who know thoso donials wero
not true. Tho statement, of course,
mnv sound vory strong, but it stands
nono tho less ns accurate. Of courso,
ns many peoplo in Honolulu probably
understand, tho situation is distinctly
political nnd tho promise was probably
mado to tho Dolegato in no small part
because of political oxigoncics.
Helped All Bound.
As far ns ono can soo now, thcro is
no particular reason to expect that
Secretary Fisher's trip will result in
a reeommondation to tho Presidont not
to nominate Governor Frcar ior another
term. Certainly the Honolulu
peoplo in Washington oxpect that tho
Govornor will havo another term. But
Secretary Fisher's trip to Honolulu
should bo helpful to tho best interests
of the Torritory in many ways. Ho
will havo opportunities for gaining information
nt first hand which should
assure further cousidcrato administration
of Hawaiian affairs at Washington.
Tho Dolegato 's reply to Governor
Frcar 'a reply was received hero today
nnd was discussed by tlio President nnd
Secretary Fishor, before tho arrangements

visit to tho Islands.
Ono hears it said that if Governor
Frcar is renominated tho Delegate and
Attorney W. A. Kinnoy and othors will
try to prevent confirmation in tho senate.
Thoro is also gossip about tli?
prospects of a commission form of gov
ernment in Ilnwnit, as soon ns tlio Japanese
voto gets formidable, which gos
sip, of course, is not altogether news in
Honolulu, llowovor, it is very doubtful
whethor nny opposition can bo
raised which will bo strong enough to

Somo idea of what tho wrocked steamer

White Star company. They aro:
Tonnage, registered, 45,000; tonnage.

2500; crew, 860.
Tho largest plates employed in tho
huH wxjro 30 f cot long, weighting .4
tons- each, and the largest steel beam
used 92 feet long, tho weight of this
doublo boam being 4 tons. Tho rudder,
operated electrically, weigh 100 tons,

wero 2000 sidelights and windows.
As ulrendy intimated, nothing was

"My doggio hasn't beon out of my
sight twenty-four hours for tho last
two years, and ho just ould not livo
without me," stormed Mrs. George Pullman
yesterday morning, whon sho found
that tho Japanese poodle, aho brought
from homo would havo to undergo four
months quarantino beforo bexng allowed
to land in Honolulu.
Doctor Norgaard said that tho dog
had been in San Francisco, thoro is
rabies in San Francisco and in Honolulu
thcro is a quarantine on all dogs
from that infected port. It did not
matter that the Japanese poodlo of
Mrs. Pullman had beon in San
a couple of days, and during
that timo in hor room at tho Fair-
Imont, tho law must bo enforced and
tho dog go to quarantine.
After using her persunssivo powers
mo ml. . ""
man t"011 lt ou tuu agents of tho Mat
Bon lino and John Drew thought she
jwas right, but did not seo how ho could
"My dog shall not go to that nasty
quarantino, ho would dio without mo
and I could not .'Ct nlonf? without him
all that timo. 1 shall havo to remain
on the Wilhelmina nnd tako caro of
the pet. I shall go to Ililo, and I will
como back hero and stay nil the timo
'with my doggie. Ho needs attention
and ho can not get along without me,"
continued tno lair ono wuuoui stopping
to tako breath.
From nil accounts lt appears that
this Japancso poodlo is somo dog. Ho
has his "biMvth" ovory morning, his
teeth aro brushed carefully, his toenails
manicured and his glossy coat is
brushed with most oxpons'ivo brushes,
with solid silver mountings. The maid,
Celeste, attends to nil theso details as
well as to caring for randamo's toilet,
so bIio might appreciate a short stay in
quarantino for tho pampered pet.
At all accounts last night it appeared
that Mrs. Pullman was destined to
tako up her abode permanently on tho
Wilhelmina so as to bo near her pot.

MONDAY 'S FIGHT
EEFOETS THAT HAWAIIAN OP-
FICEBS OF PEECINOTS CLTJBS
QUIT TURN OUT FALSE.
(From Wednesday's Advertiser.)
Hard upon tho heels of tho Froar
and open ballot victory of tho
convention of Monday night camo
tho rumor yesterday morning that various
Hawaiian officers in Jiepublicin
precinct clubs were filing their resignations
with the contral committeo.
Crowding this rumor for first place was
another that Prince Kuhio had sent a.
cablegram to somebody that ho would
resign as a dolegato, but no olio appeared
to havo any very definito information
ns to whother ho was resigning
his seat in congress or his prospective
seat in the Chicago convention
in June. Tho rumor was traced back
to statemonts mado by Stephen Dosha
whilo tho battle was on, Monday night.
It appeared to to bt only a holdover.
The faction did not crow,
but throughout tho day they showed
their spirit by making' efforts to hoal
tho breach in tho party's ranks so that
tho coming campaign plans could be approached
with a solia front. J. P. Cooko
expressed tho hopo that the spa-it of
unnnony would now prevail, as thcro
woro bigger things nhead than tho con
Somo of the Kuhio faction button
holed known Frear advocates and
ea tucm witn being sore ovor their
victory, and particularly because thoy
had won out for the open ballot. Tho
latter appears to bo tho bugaboo of tho
Kuhio faction, 'and it is understood
that a propaganda will be commenced
through some of their workors to
tho open ballot from obtaining
foothold in tho coming county conventions.
W. O. Achi stated openly yesterday
that ho as ono of Kuhio 's "lieutenants"
intended cabling tho Prince to
resign, and not ait in the Chicago
with tho Frear delegation.
Friends advised him to hold on to his

With tho matters of state relating to
tho diplomatic status of tho littlo
coral speck in the Pacific known as
Palmyra Island finally settled and tho
ponderous wheels sot in motion by the
near-controversy ovor it at rest, Washington
hastens to assure Hawaii that
it must now consider theso specks a
part of its territory.
Governor Frear received in yesterday's
mail, a, letter from tho department
of the interior enclosing a letter
from tho ' department of state. As a
result of tho visit of tho cruiser West
Virginia to Palmyra Islands, it was
recommended that in the administration
of Hawaii all official acts should
rocognire them as a part of tho Territory
and that thoy hereaftor appear on
all official maps.
Tho department of tho interior also
requested a map of Palmyra Island for
the commissioner of tho general land
ofllco to bo used in making notations
on tho maps of tho "United States, its
outlying territory and possessions as
well as on maps of Hawaii.
