Tho engine which is now beiug taken

It will be sent to tho coast, wher , with
some slight alterations, an increase of
steam pressure and an increase cf
present one indicates horse
power of about 350 will be augmented
to, say 500 horse power, which will then
make it suitable for the required power
for new hull now being const ucted.
The boiler'now being taken out Df the
Iwalani is worn out so it will be thrown
away. The engine and boiler recovered
from tho wreck of the Kilohana, which
is to replace the present outfit nt the
Iwalani, will place the Iwalahi un the
same basis as Niihau. She will have
somewhat less power than her i resent
outfit gives, but her coal consumption,
repairs and attendance will be irreatly
Two new boilers of the Scotca type
will take the place of the one being dis
carded. They will make steam lor the
augmented horse power of th new
hull. The Iwalani engine was constructed
by the Risdon Iron Wcrks of
San Francisco a Ions time ago, but it
was so far in advance of its tim ihen
that it will be as neat a job as .ny of
the most modern compound engines
and as strong.
Space will be gained by putti ig the

An engine for the new hull will also'
be gained, which, taken together is the

NEWr YORK, July 17. A Sun cable
from Berlin says:
The Tagliche Rundschau to-day
published a letter written by Professor
von Braen of tne Peking University on
June 6. After describing the growth
of the Boxer trouble, he tells of the
barricading of the Hotel Peking by
foreigners on May 28, and of the wall
surrounding the compound of the
French Legation being broken in one
or two places, In order to afford means
for the women and children to reach
refuge in the event of an expected attack
being made. A number of engineers
who had been wounded in an
attack by the Boxers outside the city
brought the news to Peking of the
danger threatening French railway
The wives of the latter and the intrepid
wife of the keeper of the Hotel
Peking, an American woman, took
matters in their own hands and organized
a relief expedition consisting
of nine persons. M. Pichon, the French
Minister, secured for the little band a
military escort from the Chinese Government,
and the expedition started
for the relief of the railway officials.
Von Braen describes the anguish of the
defenders of the hotel when Information
had been annihilated, and that this
tion had been annihilated, and this
would give the signal for a general attack
on the town of
for which place the expedition was
bound. Finally the expedition returned,
having successfully accomplished
the object of the mission. Forty
Europeans who had been at Chang-Hsin-Tien
had fought 300 Boxers for
two days and two nights'. The expedition,
whose moving spirit was a lion-hearted
American woman, saved all of
them except five, who were killed.
MRS. GHAMQT WELL MOW H
IN SAN FMNCISCO.
SAN FRANCISCO, July 19. The
plucky young American woman at Peking,
whom foreign dispatches describe
as chiefly instrumental in preventing a
massacre of foreigners, is a well-known
San Francisco girl, the sister of Supervisor
Eugene McCarthy of 565
street and for the past five years
the wife of A F. Charcot, proprietor
of the Peking Hotel and of the only
foreign store in the Chinese capital.
News had come to Peking early in
June of the peril of a company of
French railway officials at the town of
and Mrs. Chamot,
aided by women In the different embassies,
organized a relief expedition
consisting of nine persons, for whom
the French Minister, M. Pichon, secured
a military escort from the Chinese
Government. The interpid California
woman went out as the moving
spirit of the little party. After a prolonged
absence, which became agonizing
to the friends waiting in Peking,
the rescuers returned, bringing wih
them forty Europeans, the survivors
of forty-five, who had fought oft 300
Boxers for two days and two nights.
Mrs. Chamot was Miss Lizzie McCarthy,
a San Francisco girl by birth,
and bv education. On the 15th of lost
March she left thU city to rejoin her
husband in Peking, after a visit of a
year to her mother aaa brother ncre.
She is a fine type of the outdoor, ath
letic Western gin. sae is a chick, tavi
with both rifle and pistol, can row as
well as a man. can a?l boir like a
skillful yachtsman, and. according to
her brother's deacripUdB, is absolutely

"When the Imperial Government
finally permitted foreign Ministers to
reside in Peking a concessioa was also
granted for a store to supply their peculiar
needs, and a European hotel became
a. necessity for the
of tourists. From a small alfair
intended as an exclusive accommodation
to the Ministers and their households,
the Peking; Hotel grew to be
quite an establishment.the only foreign
institution In the great city of
2.000,000 people. .A bakeshop became a
necessary part of the hotel, and that
grew to be a regular bakery, supplying
all the legations. The store grew and
maintained a large stock. Upon the
store supplies the legations are now
probably subsisting. There Is more
danger of a lack of ammunition than a
scarcity of food.
"During the Chinese-Japanese war
there was a definite plan among (he legations
to combine for shelter in the
French compoundrwhich Is right next
to the hotel, and to make a hole
through the wall that separates the two
properties. In that way it was believed
the foreigners could survive a siege
and be close to a base of supplies. The
recent telegraphic dispatches indicate
that the foreigners chose to concentrate
in the British compound. If they
sought that shelter they probably had
time to move the supplies from the
store and the hotel and prepare for a
waiting defense. The wells will furnish
sufficient water, though it is of poor
quality, and must be boiled before it

to prove murder.
Dr. Garvin haspv.blicly proclaimed the fact that morphine poison was
found In Kane's stoach.
Mr. Shorey, the tiemist of the Beard of Health, when seen at his residence
last evening, said: "Yt3. I fouri'l morphine in Kane's stomach. Enough
to kill? I can't say. I found norphiae, perhaps a grain, but the system
might have absorbed more. I; is my judgment that Kane died of morphine

Kane is dead. He was one of eight; eight that hare died. It was supposed
that all of these had died, either from alcoholism or a malarial condition.
It is now proved that Kane died by opium poisoning. That being true,
the presumption is reasonable that all the other deaths were due to the same
"I am still at wojk on the contents of the stomach of Kane, and hopo

I found the poison, brt I have not goue sufficiently far to tell the whole
truth. Such examlnat." cs cannot be made In a day, you know. I discovered
the morphine poison incidentally. I was really not looking for it, but it
came in the tests, and :herefore, It has to stand."
Dr. Garvin made ( e assertion in the open Board of Health that poison
had been found in tht body of Kane. The statement caused no commeut.
It passed as a matter .f course, because, perhaps, of the lordly manner and
superior bearing of t.e executive officer of the board. He said, after tha
meeting was over: ""iesl told the truth; we found the morphine poison.
And I have nothing else to say."
Meantime, doesn't this case suggest tOj the Board of Health a cause for

If Kane died of poison, then tho presumption is reasonable that the other
seven Palolo colonists also died by the poisoners' art perhaps a kahuna.
The Board of Hea.th yesterday scarcely listened to Dr. Garvin's report.
That may have been due to hl3 man nerism the way In which he presented
