her failure to arrljre.

Thare will probably be ao voluntary

g of the next fiscal year. The num
her of deaths and resignations in the
Sarvle duriag the past six months
has beea extremely large, and it is
poselbte that by the beginning of the
next fiscal year the number of vacaa
eies required by the Personnel act
win nave beea created. The Bureau
of Navigation now actively at work
preparing the Xavy Register, which
will be Issued this year about tfc lSth

point to this particular case as
argument for the need of a patrol

Custom House people themselves.
Treasury Department's Ruling.
This is the first case which comes
under the new ruling of the secretary
of the Treasury, by which sailors of
foreign vessels are considered as im
migrants. By this rqling, they must
leave American ports in the vessels
in which they came', or In case of
transfer, approved by their respec
tive consuls, in some vessel of the
same nationality. They will be con
sidered as immigrants even If they
ship immediately on some other ves
sel. This ruling arose oat of a case
which was brought to the attention
of the Treasury Depart;n-M last Aug
ust by Collector Stackable of this port
The occasion was the desertion of sev
en sailors from the bark Sea King.
which came to Honolulu from Newcas
tle with a foreign crew on board. Sev
en sailors deserted, and Collector
Stackable decided that they were to
be considered as alien immigrants
and he levied a fine of $1 a head for
each man against the vessel, and
wrote to the department asking for
Collector's Good Judgment.
The Treasury Department then
gave out the following decision:
"This rule is a prudent one (refer-
TO SAIL NEXT WEEK
HER LEAK HAS BEEN LOCATED.
Diver Alec Lyle Makes Last Trip to
Bottom of Bay and Finds Hole
Underneath Mainmast Board of
Surveys Orders Unnecessary.
After live days of hard work un
derneath the waters of tho harbor of
Honolulu, Alec Lyle yesterday located
the leak on the ship Benjamin Sew
all. Captain Halsted is delighted, as
he will not have to discharge cargo
and will be able to proceed on his
voyage to Australia at the beginning
of next week.
Yesterday morning Lyle resumed
his diving operations and discovered
the leak in thu butt of the garboard
streak, just under the mainmast, and
on the starboard side. Th$ leak
was a big one, for the water was
flowing Into the vessel at the rate of
5 inches an hour. How it started is
not known. Captain Halstead says
that his vessel did not strain herself,
and he cannot account for the pres
ence of the leak only from the fact
that the particular butt was overlook
ed when the vessel was last over
hauled. About three days will be sufficient
to make all necessary repairs.
A short while before Diver Lyle
discovered the leak the board of sur
vey, consisting of Captains Fuller.
Brokaw and Auiesbury. inspected the
vessel aad ordered that she be dis
charged. Inasmuch as the leak has
now been located, it will not be neces
sary to follow the instructions of f.ne
board, as the repairs can be mude
without unloading her.
TWO BIG FREIGHTERS COMING.
Hawaiian and the Hyader Are Both
Due Here Next Week.
Two vessels of the American-Hawaiian
line are expected here next week
from San Francisco, The Hawaiian
is due here on the 15th and tie
Hyades on the 16th.
The Hawaiian will bring about 2.500
tons of freight for Honolulu and will
begin loading here, then she will go
to Hilo to discharge and finish her
cargo. The Hyades left San Francis
co yesterday, and will bring about the
same amount of cargo as the Hawaii
an. She will discharge part of her
cargo and then go to Kahulul to dis
charge freight and take a full comple
ment of sugar.

.' ring to Collector Stackable's ruling),
and he should be encouraged to carry
it out. In the particular instances he
cites, he seems to have properly ex
ercised his duty as collector upon
the reasonable presumption that the
deserting sailors were, in effect, alien
immigrants. A sailor by the act of
desertion does not necessarily cease
to be a sailor any more than a soldier
ceases to be a soldier by deserting
his regiment. Either may be arrested
and returned to duty. If. however, j
the sailor is not arrested or returned j
to duty, but is permitted by tho mas
ter to go free, then he cannot claim
any immunity or protection as a sail
or, and may be considered, if he
chooses to remain in this country,
an immigrant, to be inspected and
dealt with by the proper authority!

In the case of the Lord Shaftsbury
several sailors were deserters but
were afterwards captured by Captain
Harrv Flint of the Harbor
When the vessel was being towed outi
to sea by the Fearless, .however, one
of them seized a propitious moment
to jump overboard and made good his
L. Johanson, the sailor of the Lord
