The Pacific Mail will leave no stone
ur.'urned in carrying forward a risid

"The' Harrlman railroads are in
very good shape at present, and I pre
dict a very successful year under the
new organization," said. J. P. O'Brien,
vice president of the Harrlman. lines
in. Oregon, during an Interview this
afternoon. , Mr. O'Brien ; arrived in
Honolulu on the Siberia this morning
accompanied by his wife, for a two
weeksV visit In the Islands.
"The Oregon and Washington lines
are looking forward to. good crops In
that section of the country this year,
and the outlook for a large amount of
business is very ? favorable." Mr.
O'Brien went on to say. . '1 do not
thfnk that the loss ot the citrus crop
In California will affect the Harrlman
lines to any extent on account of the
fact that there will.be sufficient other
traffic to cover the loss. -v : .
"In regard to the proposed, merger
of the Harrlman lines, I have very lit
tle to say. For-the past year the dif
ferent lines have had their own offi
cials, such as 'president, etck and so
far things have run smoothly. In case
the merger goes into;effect, the lines
will all be united, under one head and
this will fee arranged through, the New
York offices." When asked concern
ing the recent act of Secretary Root's
action in the controversy regarding
the Panama Canal tolls, Mr. O'Brien
said that he did not care to talk on
that subject.
"This is my first trip to the Hawai
ian Islands and I must say that I like
the country and the city of Honolulu.
It is modern in every respect. I
would like to remain here longer, but
business affairs necessitates my re
turn to Portland in two weeks."

P. Wilder today were reappointed

mission by the governor.

i ' Half; of the Fourth Cavalry, includ

entrained at the railroad wharf at : 8
o'clock this morning and pulled ,out
for: Schofield barracks. On their ar
rival., the men will move . into v the
quarters vacated by . the correspond
ing organizations of the Fifth Cavalry,
which will , entrain and come to the
city, this afternoon, embarking on the
Sheridan, - Tomorrow, morning: the
balance of the Fourth will proceed to
Schofield by train, and the other half
ot the Fifth will board the same train
on its return trip.
But lor . the incident of the quaran
tined recruits, the Fourth would have
met with no inconveniences in chang
ing stations, but as it is, the recruit
detachment has taken one of the squa
dron barracks, adjacent to the post
hospital, and therefore four troops of
the- Fourth will have to go under can
vas for about three weeks. This is a
hitch that could not be foreseen, and
must be taken as the fortunes of
Property Transfers.
In -order to facilitate tne exchange
of stations, several officers of the
Fourth Cavalry fyere sent out to Lei
lehua last night to check up regiment
al and troop property with the out
going Fifth. This will allow the Fifth
to entrain .without delay, as soon as
the sections of the Fourth arrive.
All day today the men of the
Fourth will be busy working, cargo
on the Sheridan, loading their belong
ings on the box cars and fiats that the
busy little engines are shunting on
the switch alongside of the big troop
ship. There is a mass of stuff to be
handled, and while the holds of the
Sheridan are being emptied", of the .
Fourth's property, that of the Fifth, I
which began arriving this morning, is
being swung aboard. This unloading
