important position on the stage of

"Secretary Long intends to send
Rear Admiral Robley D. Evans out
to the Asiatic station to be second
officer in command. Both Admiral
Remey. commander in chief of that
station, and Admiral Kempfl, junior
squadron commander, will return
soon to the United States, having
served out the term allotted for service
in Asiatic waters. This will
leave Rear Admiral Rogers, now senior
squadron commander, in supreme
command.' Though It has not

that there will not then be three admirals

needed for service at home, and two

WHAT MRS. ROOSEVELT
SPENDS FOR DRESSES
Absurd Story That the Maximum Is
Three Hundred Dollars a Year Denied
in the White House.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22. Mrs.
Roosevelt has been subjected to much
annoyance by an interview, purporting
to be had with her in the White
House, printed in several papers about
a fortnight ago and copied all over
the country and abroad.
In this publication the wife of the
President was made to say that she
dressed on $300 a year, and to go
into details as to how she "made
over" her gowns. It was also told
that Mrs. Roosevelt made her children's
clothes last by passing "Teddy's"
outgrown salts to Kermtt and
then on to Qaentin.
The absurdity of this was patent to
all of Mrs. Roosevelt's acquaintances,
bat there were hundreds of thousands
of persons who did not see it in that
been deluged with letters from women
addressed to the President's wife, asking
for information as to how she has
been able in the past, and how- she
can now. as the wife of the Chief
Magistrate, when she will have to attend
so many dinners, teas, etc, get
along on ?30 a year. Farmers wives
in the far West wanted to know how
she could make one suit do for three
The story travelled so far. was so
generally believed, and the annoyance
became so great that a denial of the
yarn was made at the White House
Mrs. Roosevelt's private matters ;
are her own. but It Is paloablv absurd i
that light- The White House mail has 1
hat she should limit her wardrobe j"
expenditures to $300. or any sum near
that, and it is equally absnrd that
her wardrobe and its price should
be discussed at all.
Mrs. Roosevelt spends as much
more than 5300 for dress as her station
and tastes demand.
Miss Wong Kong Injured.
Miss Wong Kong, a graduate of
Kamehameba School for Girls and of
the Normal School in Honolulu, met
with a rather serious accident at
Maui, Sunday week. After returning
from a horseback ride she
leaned over in the yard to pick a rose,
and at that moment her horse shied,
throwing her to the ground. She landed
on the back of the head and was
unconscious for a half hour. At last
accounts she was still in bed as a result
of the shaking-up received.
Miss Wong Kong Is now a teacher
in the Waihee school.
Gunboats for the Philippines.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 14. The report
from Japan that the United
States Government has placed an
order for six gunboats with the Urga
Boat Company is not strictly accurate.
Some time ago the Secretary
of War authorized the Philippine
Commission to purchase thirty or
forty gunboats, to be used among the
islands for revenue and police patrol
purposes. They were to be bought
at Hongkong and other places where
they could be obtained to the best
