Wheeler, who is epialoved in the

Tavlor it is known here, is the negro
.Spanish linguist, Talafero, who was ar

been arrested on a larceny charge. He
was recently taken to San Franrlsco by
lyteetiVe Burke of that city.
Taylor Not Owner
Wheeler indignantly denies that Tal
afero, or Taylor, us ever a part owuer
with himself and his adopted sister of
the Agassi. He says Taylor's only coy
Vuc.tion with the shipping company was
flint he solicited business for tho ship
mid collected some money which he
fulled to account for. As soon as he
learned the character of Taylor he got
id of hi 111, suys Wheeler. This wus
after he had gone to Mazatlan, where
l.e was warned to not trust Taylor by
a .Mexican friend, he add.
According to Wheeler it was pnrtlv
through his nid that Taylor was tuken
into, custody here bv Detective Mr
Kegardiug the manufacturer who
financed Miss l.ochrane, the l.os Auge

VORK DEPENDS ON
City Sees Need .For Municipal
Plant Unless Individuals
t'iiles th,. , ,tv can make arrange
inents either to induce private parties
to engage in . cim-nt manufacture iu
Honolulu or .'ii 11 dev ise some means of
making cement for itself, the cessation
of all road and paving work in the
county is feme. I by rity officials be
eanse of the possibility that shipping
conditiuiis will prohibit its delivery
here in requisite quantities.
City I'ngineei . s. Cautin has taken
the lend 11, the attempt to avoid the
hindering of road work by an analysis
of gravid that i to lie had near Mono
hill, nnd an investigation of the Ksi
bility of man 11 In, taring cement advan
tageously. On account of the fact that
a plant for the manufacture of cement
would cost not less thaa 20,0(W), the
tty is not in n position to undertake
he project unless it is found to be
impossible to interest private capital.
Demand Is Here
One of the firms which has been
approached on the subject is Alexander
& Baldwin, a subsidiary of which has
successfully manufactured cement on
Maui from a gravel that is not so good,
chemically, as the gravel Which Mr.
Cantin has found around Honolulu. In
the case of the Maui coinany, its ac
tivities have extended only to a limited
manufacture of cement and for its own
"I believe if thut plant hail been
erected at Honolulu, instead, the firm
would have found it to have been a
flue commercial privosi tion, " said Mr.
Cautin yesterdnv. "As to its ilisjHisi
tiou in the matter of moving to Hono
lulu I do not know, luit I am sure it is
In touch with the cement situation and
I hope that other interests which are
deen,lnnt upon imported cement will
also bring the matter to attention.
"On account of the initial cost of the
plant I dou 't see how the city can
undertake it." he added.
Figuring on one third of n barrel a
lineal foot of pavemeut that la twenty
feet wide, the requisitions of the rltff
engineer for cement to complete pro
jected road work will be enormous, aud
the probability that many agencies will
interfere with its delivery here twin to
city oflicinls, who spoke of the matter
yesterday, to foreshadow the .loom of
mil. h needed road work 11 n less some
thing can be done.
Attention was called yesterday to the
fact that the shipping board will tnke
0 ruling hand indicating what com
modities shall be handled in the bot
toms which arc assigned to Hawaiian
tralo and It ia feitred that road build
ing will come luudoj the kea.l of non
essentials, unless the special instance
of the military belt Toad aronnd the
island is made an exception. This how
ever dos not come under thi- city en
gineer who has, outside of thut, project
e.l road work iu the city and county
which will require at least ",5,000 bar
rels, figuring four sacks to the barrisf.
Price Is Way Up
l!vcn though it shall prove possible
to secure thnt great amount of cement
fioni the mainland it is believed that
a great saving cau be effected because
of the Ave hundred rrent increase in
the price of this commodity which has
o, eurred in the post two years. Cement
i- now- delivered here at a cost of "i.l.'i
per barrel whereas It could have been
bought two years ago for a little more
1 1,:. 11 a dollar a barrel.
An effort line beeu made by Vu
pervisor Mott Smith to have public
winks iu the county continued so far
us it can be done, hi order to avoid
panic conditions arising from in, cm
plovinent of skilled labor. Other per
sons who appreciate the gravity of tike
-I'uation in this regard believe that
every effort should be put forth to
Veep the road bliildiug program from
sniveling a complete collapse through
l-ii-k of cement.
Bonds Are Proposed
s a means of flnaneiug this work
-in d other projects which are threaten
ed liv the lytate of the city's finances,
Mr. Mutt Smith is, together with mem
bers of the chambecof commerce, form
ulating plans to have them all lloated
by menus of band, Which is designed,
also, to increase the amount of money
in circulation. .Tha cement sit nation,
however, threaten to defeat even this
