Order to Store Coal at Naval

That the Pacific fleet may pay Ho-

rounds In naval circles here. There
has been no official word to this ef

Navy department : regarding the coal

cruisers may come again for a pro
'traded' stay. :. "

order has been received, but we have
word that we.are to get 7,000 tons of
coal per month, beginning next Febru
ary. It is hoped that the coal-stor.
age plant at Pearl Harbor will be , in
operation by the end of next June; but
until that Ume it will have to be BtorJ
ed around the front here, which
looks as though' there might be a more
or Hss immediate call for fuel. We
have nomTird' as to. how- long the
monthly shipments are to continue,

Transfers of Which Secretary

No Evasion of Law, but 1000
Acres Too Small for a
, Plantation
Under date of September 30, 1912,
C. Brewer & Co., Ltd executed quit
claim deeds to. three corporations for
lands on ; the island of Hawaii.
Asked regarding the transactions,
Richard f Ivers, secretary of Brewer's,
fcaid this morning that the corpora

statement to Secretary Fisher report
ed in yesterday's Star-Bulletin.
VThe ' provision of the Organic Act,
prohibiting a corporation from hold
more loan iuuu acres oi iana, nxa
nothing whatever to do with these
transactions,0 said Mr. Ivers; "AJ1

more than 500 acres. , - ; V ,

more about, a henroost than he did

Attorney General Gives Opinion

After : a careful study of" the .law
points involved, Attorney General Alex
Lindsay - lias reversed the opinion he
gave off-hand to ' the Star-Bulletin a
few?d&ys ago, before he had examined
the 5 statute - relating to the case, and
hepresented to the Board, of Harbor
Commissioners', this : afternoon a for
mal statement to the effect that that;
commission has no right, under tf e
present Jaw,'t6 regulate the dockage
charges at privately-owned wharves. J-
At-,M,first flush" a few" days aso,

Son Coming as One of the Um
pires but Division Chief
Must Stay at Home
It was definitely learned this morn
ing that Major General Arthur Mur
ray, commanding the Western Divi
sion, would not come to Oahu for the
department maneuvers the latter part
of this month. Word to this effect
was brought by the general's daugh
ter. Miss Sadie Murray, and daughter-
in-law, Mrs. Maxwell Murray, wno ar
rived on the Honolulan.
A few weeks ago General Murray
stated in a personal letter to a friend
In this city that he was "merely wait
ing for an opportunity to visit panu
again," and the inference from the
text of the rest of the letter was that
the coming maneuvers might be, the
opportunity he was. waiting for. It
now develops that the division com
mander had been contemplating the
trip, but was unable to arrange his
plans at the last moment Depart
ment headquarters has been rather
anxious to find out whether or not

The . pall of an extraordinary session
of Congress next spring for tariff re
vision has been thrown over business
interests by the recentv utterances of
President Taft. His broad hints In
that direction indicate that 'Congress
will be .convened immediately after
the regular short session of this win
ter, no matter who. Is chosen presi
dent' .i . .
It was taken as a matter of course
that' in-the event of Mr. Wilson's suc
cess there would be the extraordinary
session. However it was expected
that if Mr. Taft .were retained as chief
executive the Republicans would -leave
well enough - alone - and permit com
mercial enterprises to have approxi
mately a year's rest from rumors of
ruinous reductions in protective du
ties. - ' 1 ; ' - ". '
President Taft has promised a revi
sion of the tariff if the Republicans
succeed In . the November elections .
The reason assigned is that' duties
should be adjusted on a scientific
basis to prevent prices for. the neces
saries of life irom becoming too ex
orbitant He hinted that the work of
the tariff board would be resumed
and all modifications of schedules
based on the conclusions of that body.
At the same time the president de.
iclared that the Payne-Aldrich tariff
act had nothing more to do with the

by members of his family at least ends
a period of indecision.
