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 steamer ar
rived with a varied cargo including! a
mill roller, 0 cords wood, 9791 feet of
planking, 3441 feet flooring, .11,300
paving blocks and a quantity of
empty bottles, and drums, 45 barrels
wax, 15 bales hides, 19 hogs and 264
packages sundries.
A rather small list of cabin and
deck passengers returned to this port
in the Claud ine
Schooner Kona to Load Sugar.
Sugar will be supplied the Amer
ican schooner Kona destined for San
Francisco refineries, and 'that vessel
is now on the way from Ahukini to
Hana, Maui. The windjammer was
towed to sea.on the last visit of the
steamer Hall at the Garden Island
port. At this season of the year .the
length of time consumed in sailing
between the two island ports is prob
lematical. The bark Nuuariu is about
three weeks out from Honolulu to
Hilo, with no signs of arrival at the
Hawaii port

; 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
"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. Had Governor Frear taken his j

cessfcns that he has made in his
printed complaint as to my ability and
honesty. 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
am sure, I do not know - to what ex
tent the same f act may- vbe true with
reference to the other side of the con
troversy, but with reference to us
wo are proud and perfectly willing to
aimit that many ..things', that seemed
to us at the time of making specifica
tions to be serious; have In a large
measure lost their seriousness as a re
sult of the explanations that have
bten given by Governor Frear or oth
ers, and of ithe examinations and' ob
servations that we have been able to
give to the circumstances themselves the facts here so that you people of

"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

a wireless telegraph I was called out

his own connection with the cas.

The statements of both Mr. Thurs

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
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

Mr. Thurston ' asked - permission
from the Secretary to make a state

years ago to get evidence against the

Kinney, who was In charge of tb
prosecution apparently, had told him
that a previous ' Supreme Court, deci
sion held that evidence taken under
pressure .of law was inadmlssable, on
account of the constitutional provi
sion against self-incrimination. - Kin
