when his subordinate, Dr. A. N.

- Captain fienard replied that it
was against all rules of good sea- '

the side when a vensel was docking .
and naturally thought that Doctor
Hinelair with all his long seafaring
experience waa cognizant of this
fact. However, he felt sorry that

sion, - - . ' , ' v . - , .(

ed Through' on Barges.
Cabled advices from the head olllce
in New York to C P. Morse, general
agent for ' the r American-Hawaiian
Suamship Company Jn Hawaii, which
were received yesterday at one o'clock,
stated that the 12,000-toa sugar cargo
of the steamer Alaskan, now at Pan.
ama, , would be moved within a' day
or so through the ranama Canal,
Ihe Alasaha lett Hawaiian waters
on April 17 for Sulina Crux. Prior' to
its arrival at the Mexican port wire
less orders were sent to the commander
ef the vessel to change his course, mak
ing Panama hia destination. Owing to
the 'unsettled condition ia Mexico,, the
Tehuanfeepee Kail road had ceased opera
tions, and its truflio was diverted to the
ranama Kailroad across the isthmus.
Advtcea received by Mr. Morse and
the agents of the Sugar Faetors Asso
elation within' the past few dava have
contained the . Information that owing
to tbia extra burden of trafue on the
Fanama Bailroad the line is blocked
and business is practically at a stand
still. . ..--.'
The cable to Mr. Morse states briefly
that the sugar on the Alaskan will be
conveyed through the canal on barges,
and a steamer will be dispatched to
Colon, the Atlantic entrance of the
canal, to convey it to Philadelphia.
Mr. Morse notified the Hawaiian Bugar
Factors Association to this effect short
ly after the receipt of the cable.
wneiner Hawaiian sugar will con
tinue to be shipped in this manner Mr.
Morse was unable to state, as no in
structions have been received here to
change the course of the steamer Mexi
can of this lin a, The Mexican ia sched
uled to sail for Philadelphia from Hilo
on May 23. . It la not thought likelv bv
Mr. Morse that these plans will be.
changed, as In his opinion the allowing
of the Alaskan cargo to be shipped
tarougn tne ranai is being done as an
emergency measure to relieve the con
gestion or the Panama Hailroad.
The Virginian leaves Beattle today
for Honolulu with a Urge cargo of
Bound products. In addition the vessel
has westbound New Yoik cargoes 40

The steamer Columbian will be die

June A. Beattle and Tacoma were
eliminated from the vessel 's schedule
this trip owing to the time lost by the
steamer at Balina Crux when the out-i
DreaK or hostilities started between
Mexico and the United States.
A cable received here at that time
by the Bugar Factors Assouiation stated
that the Columbian had been seised bv

was never confirmed by the Associated
