"The explanation given 'by the col

"In the flint place, he point out,"
the atatement that the existing ' con
dition u due to, the failure: of the
owner not entering the goods at Out
port, or obtaining permisaion to with
draw aame for exporta,, hardly placet
.". the owners in a, fair light.- .The ehip
'nnd its cargo were brought to thin port
. without any knowledge whatsoever on
' the part of the owners of the cargo.
Owners Surprised ' . t '
"It was only by' chance la their in
rjujjrinj? why certain officer on the
Oceania liner arriving at Sydney was
not aboard the boat that they ascertain
'. ed Hat lie had bee detailed te take
the steamer 'ElsAse' from the-port of
' Honolulu to Ran Francisco. Thin gavt
tho owners the first knowledge that the
, cargo was at, Honolulu. This fact may
be appreciated when it was realized
"that the steps taken by the shipping
board and the movement of vessels ars
kept quite secret from the ' world at
large. Immediately upon the Austra
lians learning that the eargo, was here,
they cabled for advices as to what con
dition the cargo , was landed In and for
information ' as ' to - what . procedure
would be necessary to secure a release
of the cargo.
"No reflect ioa Is made . upon , the
collector of the port, who was acting
under instructions from the treasury de
partment and the shipping board, who
ordered the goods landed from the vee-
, sol here. The collector then found
himself saddled with this miscellaneous
1 cargo with no place to store same.
Tho harbor board immediately insisted
- that the goods be removed from the
dock on very short notice, and, it be-
Jngf very hard , to obtain - -suitable
warehouse, the collector of customs
availed himself of the only apparent
opportunity of storing the goods at
Twilei.
Warehouse Too Small
"It developed that the building was
entirely too small for the eargo which
van destined to bo stored therein and
probably, without the knowledge of the
collector or his deputy at tho time,
the goods were thrown into tho ware
house in a manner which elearly show
that no thought was given to their
withdrawal should individual shipments
lie required ' for entry or trans-ship.
; merit. .
"The cargo is a, very general one.
and from the nature of some of the
urticles, has been somewhat damaged.
One of the main points, however, is
thnt the goods were placed in such
manner in the warehouse it is next to
impossible to obtain any individual
consignment as a wholn, or, in fart,
to get at any of some of the goods in
Knmo of the .shipments which have been
applied for.
"Mr. Terry's statement In a roeent
Issue of The Advertiser may clearly
be brirne out by the facts, and, while
no one wishes to throw discredit on
the collector of customs, or his force,
the rirrumstanoes remain the same, that
the Australian consignees have through
no fault of theirs become subject to an
unusual burden of costs, which not' onlv
includes the storage charges and two
enrrage charges, but a very heavy
freight rate from this port to Aus
tralia. "In view of Mr. Franklin's state
ment tliat be pays only 1150.00 for the
Fogarty warehouse, it is hardly rea
sonable to expoct that the TT. B. govern
ment wishes to mnke a profit of six
or seven hundred dollars per month
for storage collected from the unfor

Plentifully supplied with bonus
money, about 'one ' hundred" And fifty
Fiipino and Portuguese laborers ar
rived yesterday morning on the Mauna
Kea from the plantations of the Big
Island. While most of these are on
what they term their vacation, merely
seeking a means of spending their
superfluous cash, many passed the day
in visiting the various steamer agencies
in an endeavor to engage paNttnge to
the mainland, where they have been
led to believe fortunes are awaiting
them.
It was impossible to accommodate all
of them in the steerage and many of
the overflow had to be given cabin ac
commodations. , It is thought that nut
of them will nave spent their bonus
money by next Hnturday when they will
be ready to return te the Hawaii plan
tations by the Mauna Kea sailing that
afternoon. It is also thought that
ninny who would otherwise have gom'
to the iiir.i'il.'iM.i will return to the
Inland, owing to the temporary .mi
mandeei'iiig of the Mntsou vcsseli and
the consequent cancellation of all book
ings for passnge u tlioso steamers.
Fire broke out last night in the ser
nants' quarters at the resident?) of
John I Fleming, corner . Liliha and
Wyllie streets, and in addition to com
pletly destroying that building, burned
down, a garage in which was a Ford
machine belonging to M. Fleming, to
pother with au udjucent garage own
ed by Dr. F. L. Morong...
The call was received at the fire de
partment at nine o'clock, aud when
the engines arrived on the scene a few
minutes later the buildings were too
far gone to permit of thoir being saved.
Fire Chief C. 11. Thurston subse
quently learned that the flames had
made considerable headway before the
alarm.. was given.
The origin of the fire' is unknown,
but it is belie-ved. that it commenced
wTth. the over turning of a kerosene
oil .lump in the quarters occupied by
the Japanese servants. The only per
son at home when the Ann started was
the Japanese woman, and she, at the
time, was having a bath. (Seeing the
flames she rushed, quite nude into the
street culling for help,
Mr. Fleming is at the present time
visiting in Han Frnnclsco, and Ms.
Fleming--was Inst ' night cnlling on
friends, nhc hud gone out in the lig
machine, which was fortunate, its lind
ii imcn hi me gitrugc it w ouiu umioiini -cclly
have gone, up with th Ford iu
smoke. There was no niuchiue in Dr.
Morung's garage nt the time.
According to Fire Chief Thurston
tho buildings were all frail wooden
structures, und the loss, beyond the
Ford car, Is not thought to be'grent.
It is not known whether the buildings
and tho machine were covered by in
surance. Beyond u gold wntt-h and chain,
which was found by a fireman after
the fire hud been extinguished, nothing
wus suved from tho servants' quurtcrs.

"In circulating the" petition asking
congress to aid the Territory in pro
hibiting the liquor traffic I have found

George P. Castle yesterday. Mr. Cas
tle is one of the three men who spent
yesterday oldnining signatures to the
two petitions, ono to the senate and
one to Jhe house of representatives of
the United States, asking for prohibi
tion. "K lnrgr majority of those spoken
to would gladly see federal prohibition
here,", continued Mr. Castle "They
do not ton-ider that it would prove aa
entering wedga fof complete federal
control aav more than the present opi
um regulations pave the way for fed

"Nearly all the prominent business
firms, banks, and trust companies have
already eigi.od, and more will sign oa
Monday,"
;,The petitions which are belnjt 'cir
culated, by members of the Anti-Baloon
Leagua are as follows:
. V We,, ''the undersigned residents of
the Territory of i Hawaii, . being con
versant with the industrial and moral
conditions in this , Territory, are con
vinced that the liquor traffic is one of
the greatcxt menaces to its prosperity
and welfare, and. should be prohibited.
We, '.therefore, respectfully petition
your Honorable Body for its assistance
to attain this end.',' . , .- ;
: Only three men refused to siga the
petition for one of the caavaseeri yes
terday. One of these gave aa his rea
son the fact that it would hurt him
in a business way.' Only one stated
that . be objected to prohibition and
would not siga for that reason,- while
the remaining one of the three said
that in his opinion the local legislature

Boat Which Travel
ed "Eight
and Fifty Miles
f llnggard,' pain-drawn faces, - lips
swollvn and parched and cracked from
lack- of fresh water, puffed and bleed
ing feet, were the fearful sights which
Japanese sampan fishermen aboard the
Tin mb Maru saw when they raa down
upon and pirked up an open sailboat
.containing - fifteen men of the Nor
wegian steamer ,Thor off the Kahuka
roost yesterday morning. The suffer
ers had been fourteen days in the boat,
sailing' 850 miles in that time.
, Incredible hardships were encoun
tered, by .the officers and men aboard
the -Norwegian ' vessel iu the terrino
gales which buffeted her while she was
far to the north of Honolulu en route
to China.' Dav and night trreat seas
pounded., the, decks of the steamer,
crushed In . deck bouses, tore off the
hatch combings and filled the holds
with water. The gale increased to
hurricane strength until the 'Vessel be
came a mere eockle shell. Rail were
twisted and wrenched and tha engine
room flooded, but the Sturdy men of
Norway and many of other national!
ties, for she waa just the ordinary
eargo tramp steamer which picks .its
crew from the Hea-World of the earth's
ports, Norwegians, Danes, Russian
Finns, Australians and Americans, stood
at their posts even when they knew
tneir svp waa doomed.
Buckles Under Strain .
Ueel and iron at last succumbed -to
the' nilghty trip-bammer blows of the
seas until the plates amidship bnekled
and a rending of steel apprised them
that the death-knell -was soundins.
The split grew and tor down the side
of the hull. Vast, chaotic wave surg
ed and eddied around and over the
vessel. Maelstroms of water and fierce
a-inds rolled and pushed the. vessel
over until it seemed she would turn
turtle, but she righted only to heave
to the otber side while tons nnd tons
of water-wero engulfed in the holds.
Craw Takes to Boate
The captain ordered the hoofs stow-
ed with provisions and beakers of
water. Oreater rendinga were the sig
ns! for taking to the boats, the captain
ind fourteen men In one, and Mate
Rolf Anderson and fourteen men and
boys in the obher.
The seas began to subside and it was
then thst the crew quit the vessel tak
ing as much provender and clothing
r.nd effects as possible. In a twenty
two foot boat the captain nnd his men
launched out upon the waste of water,
and in a boat of the same dimensions
Mate Anderson and his men esst off
from the sodden, stricken hulk. As
they left they saw tho vessel splitting
in two. Darkness came and they
never knew the fate of their . vessel.'
But in their imagination tbey saw the'
craft part in twain to le sucked in two
parts to the deep abyss of the ocean
far to the north and west of Honolulu.
First Newn of Otbext
In the darkness the boats became
separated and only yestorday did Mate
Anderson's crew learn that the cap
tain and his men wero safe in Japan,'
picked up by a Japanese steamer.
Fifteen men in a boat laden with
boxes and tins of provisions, overcoats
and bags, with a single mast hnd
single sail, ndiit't upon the vast oceu.i
was an almost iiiHiiitesimul thing ami
to the men it grew to seem even nunc
infinitesimal, for soon they became
rramped mul muscle-bound. Deep laden
she was, with her gunwales only a few
free inches aliove the choppy sen. The
gale, which had mihsidfld, came n t
again. The mate hn 1 a compass and
only a pilot chart showing the entire
Pacific region on a small square of
paper, on which the island appeared
as mere pin dots. It wus not a uaviga
tor's I'liait with wide spaces to kIiom
the degrees.
True Course Steered
The Norwegian is a born son of the
sea. The Viking clarity of vision and
diroctiou seemed as inborn ia this lit
tlo party us In the bold navigators of
centuries ago. They, . set their course
aud steered true for the Hawaiian Isl
ands. Men in that boat had beeu.in
Honolulu. They knew.ct hat safe har
bors awsitwl them iu thews isles,, and
that only barren, unfruitful shores were
in the islets to south aud west
Packed la Tightly -
Cluttered us the bont was with its
dunnage snd extra clothing,, the boxes
and tins, the oars and. tha required
spnee for shifting the rudder tiller
back aud forth made the quarters seem
smaller day ty day. ' Bleep rould only
be obtained when ' exhausted nature
dulled their senses and even then the
movement of bodies of the sleepless
failed to arouse thmn. " The boat filled
with water from seas slopping over the
gunwales, men were constantly on duty
bailing. Their feet were seeped in sea
water made rou Irom. iti) sloshings
amid dunnage and refuse. Their clothes
became soggy and never seemed to dry
even with a clear sky. The boat hwk
ed and the scums widened.
Food Ca'efully Conserved
' Hard tack and lighter soil bun-nits
u ii I it little salt incut was their daily
portion, but the mute knew that tin
greatest of all tragedies would come if
the water heukers failed, and short ru
turns of it were ordered. As daylight

WEEKLY MARKET tEHER
. . .. ... November .10. 1017
. There has been very few changes, la
the market prices during the week,
targa Island corn has advanced two
dollars, per.' tea and there .is very .lit
tle Island cvra for sale, as most of the
Hawaii and . Maui crops have beea
sold. .- ' ;. - ' . ., ' -.
. Large quantities of Maui beans have
been received, and are not selling very
fasti , We have made a trial shipment
to the Coast. I do not thiak it will
be necessary to make more shipments
to the Coast, as the grocers Of Honolulu
nave promised to push the Island beans
and we hope that all. the housewives
and the fresh swelled until the skin 1m
came thinly stretched and in. soma in
stances burat and the blood flowed slug
gishly. Day by day, with. the heat at
times stifliug, at other timet cold sod
damp, and the nights, long and sleep
less, the .muscles became stiffened. Some
were wJtbout hats and the glare of the
ocean struck their eyes like darts. The
sea water drying beneath their cloth
ing produeei) chafe and U was agony
to sit, but it Was equal agony to tand
op. Feet became puffed and shoes
could not be worn. Socks became aa
unknown quantity. Vndershirts were!
rew among . them. A few overcoats
had been saved. Knotted handkerchiefs
were used in lieu of raps. Constipation
made them inert; swollen feet and
hands and the cramped space almost
hatted their circulation. '
Welcome XaM Seen , '
At half past four yesterday morning
tbey spied a coast. . As daylight grewj
they saw towering masts ahead and!
those who had beeu in Honolulu knee
them to be the masts of the Marconi
Wireless Company at Kahuku. They;
had reached a haven at last and with
out the loss of a life.'
They sped on and then only too late
found themselves in the great billowi
surging In across outlying reefs, and
lelt that after all they were doomed
for they were too weak to battle
singly iu thq water for their lives, in
surf which pounds Tituulike upon the
rocky coral and lava coasts where even
strong swimmers hesitate to plunge.
unce more the oar were manned,
manned v swolhtrt, lists , which, -qogld
Imrely hold tho stubs. Hnnds that bled
from burst skid worked the , little
bout out to deep sea again.
" We. thought we,, were gone" said
Mate Anderson, "but luck was with
us.
Then they saw a moving speck and
discovered this to be a fishing sampan.
Tbey signalled, the sampan turned iu
their direction, and soon the samps u
was alongside and the battle for life
was over. A painter was sent from
the 'sampan to the Thor's boat. ' .-.
The Japanese captain, and his men,
true manners aa they are, recognized
the plight, of the castaways, and made
hut tea, rooked rice and sent it together
with big gallon jars;of milk aboard.
They drank the milk out of their aaitnon
tiss, and then drank the tea aud the
nce aua became more use themselves
uguin. It was the first hot food ,tkey
hud lasted jince they left the Thor.
Baff In Hwbor ,, . .. ,
The hours seemed long until Jhe nam-
pun aud its tow steered up the chan
nel into Honolulu harbor. At length
