Pa Purser Kibling of the Inter-Island steamer Claud ine reported the arrival of the American schooner Defender at Honoipu. the windjammer being sighted as the Claudine steamed past that port on last Monday evening. The Claudine met with fair weather on the return trip.

The windjammer was towed to sea.on the last visit of the steamer Hall at the Garden Island port.

So yes terday came a wireless from the .Mary land, engaging a canoe for 4 o'clock, Everything -vaa ready but the surf, and, as above mentioned, that acted in a very sulky and ungracious manner. Ran From Typhoon. ; Secretary . Knox, was enthusiastic about his trip to JapaQ, which, aside irom the sad errand which took him there, twas most enjoyable. With. the exception of a couple of days, the voy age of the Maryland both going and coming was like a yachting trip on summer seas. VWe had a little rough weather the first twjo days out from .Yokohama," said Secretary Knox. "The fact Is, we were chased by the big typhoqn that did so much damage to the coun try, but the Maryland is a good ship to be at sea on in a storm. "The ceremonial part of our visit was most impressive," continued the Secretary. "The whole nation mourn ed sincerely for the dead emperor. The suicide of Count Nogi caused a great sensation, coming, .just as it did, and created much comment and speculation." . "How about politics; what's the news?" asked th,e Secretary of the Star-Bulletin reporter, "beating him to it" with the question. "I'm really asking . for Information," Mr. KnoS added, for you must . reme.m b.er that we haven't seen a paper for days, and are completely out of touch with world news and mainland affairs. Don't question me, for I really don't know a thing. Mexico, politics, San to Domingo it's all a cKsed book to me." "We made a fast run from Yoko- j-hama to Honolulu, said Rear Admiral Miller yesterday. "We got same ex ceptionally good coal aboard at the former port, and this enabled the Alaryland to do some great steaming. We arrived almost a day before we expected to when we started out. Tbe outside edge of the typhoon was the only incident of the trip worth mentioning." ' The Maryland will probably finish coaling tonight, and will pull out some time Friday, probably early in the afternoon, but the exact time depend ing on the convenience of the two cab inet ministers who will be passengers, accompanied by their respective par ties. Navajo Will Salute. There was a great booming of guns this afternoon when the party left for Pearl Harbor on the Navajo. In fact, had all the high civil and naval offi cers been accorded the salutes they were entitled to, the start would have been much delayed. As it was the two cabinet officers were given the nine teen guns each that is their due, and the firing of these 38 shots took up quite enough time and made enough noise.

It has been practically decided to eliminate the trip to Hilo and the volcano, as the result of the report from the lat ter point that the crater is not very active at the present time. As the gnests of Rear Admiral Cowles the two cabinet officers, their families and retinues this afternoon are taking a trip by boat to Pearl Harbor. They will return this even, ing hTtime to be present at the poi dinner at the home of Princess-Kawa- nanakoa.

I take this occasion also to express my appreciation of the cour tesy and fairness which his attorney. Mr. Ashford, has shown during this investigation. While it is hard to be made the goat, as some have express ed it, at these hearings I do not know but that 1 can stand that any Gov ernor of this Territory must , expect a liability to such things. It is known here that this is a thankless job, but sun, that is so anywhere. Again still, I believe that a great deal of good is going to result to this Terri tory from this investigation, and I be lieve that it is a good thing to wash out the dirty linen; that it js a good thing to air these complaints; that it is a gooa inmg ior us. to see our selves as others see us and that it will be valuable for this Territory to have such suggestions as you have made and coming from such a person as you. I believe that the result' will be, referring to your address of yes terday, that more of the people of this territory win come rorward with a helping hand and not leave the brunt of things to others, reserving the right to take a crack at them for things which do not suit them. 1 believe that the result will tbe that the people of this Territory will not be so content hereafter to dwell on the minutes of the previous meeting; but will go'forth with renewed -zeal for the accom plishment of new business." Ashford Makes Statement. Mr. Ashford said; "Although the hour is late, might I claim a few minutes of your time. "On behalf of both the Delegate and myself, I desire to reciprocate all the pleasant things .that - have been said by Governor Frear of us. There weren't very njany, but.hat tnere were very sincere. v We .desire to re turn to him and to his counsel, the tribute of fairness and of courtesy that he has extended to us--I am tree to say that the closer and more intimate association tyhlch - these nearly " four weeks have brought about I. am quite J free to siy, for - cleared out ,of our minds, or at least the minds' of. some of us, many of the cobwebs the 'mis takes that previously existed there.

"I entirely concur with Governor Ft ear in the belief that there are gTeat advantages ., to be expected from this investigation, I desire? at this point to accord -to you the most sin cere tribute of respect from both the Delegate and myself with reference to not only the absolutely unbiassed and fair methods ln which you have con ducted this inquiry, but to the ability which you have shown and the deter mination to go t the bottom lof things, and above that, the absolute indifference as to where the . blows might fall. We expect, as I say, as a result of this inquiry, a great many good things. I think those things may be multiplied in proportion as you say it may be If desirable or ,tf te time could be afforded to dwell upon them in any report which you may be able to make, but even if this incident should be absolutely, closed today and not another word was written concern ing it, I think there has been enough information come out from the hidden and secret places to so far enlighten our community as to matters hereto fore unknown among us, that the re sult in this community alone will be a vastly better understanding as to what have been our conditions, what is the cause of some of them and what is the method by whith they can Tie bet tered or remedied; It may be that if the Governor and the Delegate or those who represent ed him at the time had known each other better and had known each oth er's views better, that this investiga tion would not have been necessary, for the reason possibly' that the mat ters may have been arranged between them and nothing in the shape of for mal complaints would have been made. I say that is a possibility. I can speak for myself only when I say that when I was first brought Into the contro- j versy, when through the medium of a wireless telegraph I was called out of a sick bed and brought here to Ho nolulu to take the steamer here twenty-four hours later for Washington for tiie purpose of representing the Dele gate in the matter, it was absolutely j the beginning pf my connection with ! tne matter, t torn tnat point on l nave law wilfully or against public policy, foreign, or newly arrived-labor.

Interesting.; I, The statements of both Mr. Thurs ton and . Mr. Jvexs were particularly Interesting. Mr. Thurston was first called on to explain about the Hilo Railroad's acquisition of its forty-five acres of terminal at Hilo, and after dealing ; with . railroad matters at length, he was asked about immigra tion, homesteading and general sub jects which Mr. Fisher has, been tak ing up-. He declared that while pres ent conditions do not favor home steading, he believes a solution of the problems can be worked out and ex pressed himself. as greatly in favor of working them out with governmental assistance. Mr. Thurston scored em phatically what he alleges is the pol icy pf secrecy among Hawaiian plant ers regarding the publication of their experiment station data and reports, saying that he is utterly against this secrecy. There Is no use disguising the fa,ct that the general tone of the larger landholders has not been favorable to small holdings in their vicinity,' he asserted. He favored legislation to regulate transportation matters by a public utility commission appointed by the Governor with the consent of the Senate, but opposed an elective com mission. Both Mr. Thurston and Mr. Ivers were asked at some length about the compart nership of corporations here to evade the Taw against any one cor poration holding more than one thou- sand ac res of land, and both declared thaf there is no attempt to evade the , thought better to form the companies and to handle them more in connec- tion with the plantations.
