ould not be found last night but he is ,
id to have made a threat when, al
though the vessel was short of fire- .
food and water, the Judge insisted on
lontinning the Voysge to Honolulu In
tend of stopping at Waimea for sup- '

Referring to the lack of wood and
water on the schooner, Mr. Hitchcock
admitted that the voyagers had been ,,
reduced to the necessity of making tea
jut of canned soup and' using it as a
substitute for water. This was after
the Luka had been beating about three
lays la the waters off the Kauat eoast
and making little headway owing to '
-ontrary winds. The vessel had thus
traveled about 300 miles ia excess of
the distance between the Palmyras and .
this port, which is 895 miles. Under,
these circumstance's Mr. Hitchcock as
serted that all on board were willing to
land at Waimea without threats of
punishment. .''..' . ". , ..;'
Reports of the difficulty said to havo

schooner indicated that the alleged in
terference of Judge Cooper in the
routine aboard ship had annoyed hint
(reatly. The judge is said to have be.
gun early on the trip to note exceptions
to the captain's orders regarding the
steering of the vessel and to have con-
tinued this course throughout the voy
sge. The captain 'is quoted ss. declar
ing the judge might be sound on legal
points but that his information on coin
psss points Was seriously at fault
NaUves Brought Back.
The original intention- of . Judge
Cooper was to leave four Tahitsns on
Palmyra Island to look after his in
terests there but this plan was changed ,
and all were brought back, although '
part of the provisions taken on the
voyage were left behind., As the Is
land is uninhabited they probably will ...
be. there when the Judge returns, as
he expects to do in about two months,
unless a stray band of smugglers should
