Steamer Rosecrans To Again Go Into
The American oil tankerRosecjrans
which has figured in more' than one"
sencational episode in Honolulu har
bor may yet play a return engagement
here In carrying fuel from the coast
to the local plant of the Associated Oil
The tanker which was swept by fire
ana itorn by explosions at Gaviota
some time ago, is. now undergoing re
pairs at San Francisco. The explo
sions which started the fire were con
sidered to have been due to an accu
mulation of gas in the vessel's holds.
1 is said 175,000 will cover the loss.
The Rosecrans was built in Glasgow
in 1883 and launched as the Methven
Castle. lfwas later purchased by the
United States government rechris
tened the General Rosecrans and used
as a troopship during the Spanlsn
American war. One of the Phoenix
pirk murderers, Carey the Informer,
v. no gave tip to Justice his " confed
erates in the murder in Dublin of
Lord Charles Fed erick Cavendish and
Thomas F. Burke, was killed on the
Methven Castle near Capetown within
a few years after the launching of the
'vessel. - ;f
For several years the, Rosecrans
was operated by the Associated Oil
company as a tank ship, being char
tered lately to the Union Oil company.
In a heavy gale at Gaviota, Jusi pre
vious to the recent disaster which
overtook the vessel, the Rosecrans
dragged its anchors and went ashore,
two of the crew being lost in t5e
heavy turf., When at Honolulu 2 years
ago the chief engineer was murdered
by a drunken fireman, who was con
demned to die. The sentence was lat
er commuted and he is now serving
a life sentence In Fort Leavenworth
Kilauea Arrived at VoasL .
Tbo Inter-lsland steamer Kllauea
with a small amount of general cargo,
arrived at San Francisco early this
morning, the distance being covered
in eight and one-half days.
The Kilauea left her home port to
receive general repairs at the coast
shipyards. Some months ago the ves
sel scraped the rocks near Kailua
and as a result several plates were
dented. To replace these the vessel
was obliged to return to the Union
Iron Works. The Kilauea was given
a liberal supply of oil as fuel before
starting on the trans-Pacific voyage.
The time made by the little liner oc
casioned considerable surprise among
local shipping men today.
The Kilauea is to remain at San
Francisco for about ten days before
starting home. The vessel may be
given a general cargo to serve as bal
last. Li hers Meet With Fine Weather.

LAi Mi
Name of Maui Engineer Urged
as Next Superintendent
of Public Works
Hugh Howell, former county engin
eer of Maui, was prominently men
tioned today and yesterday as one of
the best men that Coventor Frear
could possibly pick out as a successor
to Superintendent of Public Works
Marston Campbell, whose resignation
ought to have taken effect some
months ago.
Howell's name is unofficially in
dorsed by several prominent engin
eers and contractors. Although there
is an engineering association, it has
made no indorsement of -a man to
succeed Campbell, It was said today,
but there is talk that a meeting for
this purpose may shortly be called un
less Governor Frear should in the
meantime make an appointment.
"Howell Is the right man for the
place," said a leading engineer to
day. "He is a good engineer and a
good executive. I feel sure that all
of the engineers and contractors of
the Territory would 'fcokua' the sug
gestion that he be named."
Engineer Howell has been In the
Islands for many years and has both
the experience and the training, say
his admirers, to fit him for the posi
tion. In some quarters there is a disposi
tion to believe that the Governor
would like to get H. K. Bishop, en
gineer of the Hawaii loan fund com
mission, for the place. .
Returning four indictments of minor

mnking no mention of the investiga

district court this morning and was
discharged from further duty.
The four indictments finds true bills
against Saiki, a Japanese accused of
selling liquor at retail without paying
the special government tax; Thomas
Onokea, for adultery; Joseph. Francis,
for selling opium, and Robert A. Mor
ton, on the charge of bigamy.; All of
the accused were arested some time
ago by U. S. Marshal on warrants Is
sued. by U. S. District Attorney
Breckons, and the indictments are
largely a matter of legal formality fol
lowing the apprehensions.
Saiki will be arraigned next Satur
day.' Ohbk'ea and Francis both have
entered a plea of guilty and wil re
ceive their sentence Saturday, while
Morton has pladed not guilty and has
been given until Monday to obtain
counsel. . A statutory charge Is con
tained in a secret indictment returned
this morning. This will be put on the
secret file until the accused person is
placed under arrest.
