The splendid work done , by Battery
Hasbrouck, the battery of quick-load-ing
mortars at the Pearl Harbor artil
lery post, was the subject of much
local commendation at the time,
it was thought that the battery had a
good chance of being first when the
percentages were computed. The oth
er coast defense guns and mortars of
Oahu also did well, according to the
official figures. Battery Hasbrouck's
record was 10 hits out of a possible
20 for the first practice, and 14 out of
"0 for the second, at about 10.000
yards range.

ant discover)', but it was announced
too prematurely it has not yet been
fully worked out"
This statement was made this morn
ing by Dr. J. Sautner, a biologist of
some prominence in the scientific
'world, who is connected with the Pas
teur Institute of Paris, and who is a
stopover passenger in Honolulu en
route to Japan. Doctor Sautner comes
direct from the Rockefeller Institute.
New York, where for 14 months past
he has been engaged in biological
work, and It was while in New York
that he came'in touch with the Ger
man scientist and worked for some
time in close association with him.
He is strongly inclined to, believe that
something of much value will yet
come from Doctor Friedmann's dis
covery. Mr. Sautner arrived yesterday by
the Sonoma, and stopped off to get a
glimpse cf the islands pending the ar
rival of the Shinyo Maru on the 27th.
He is en route to join the . Pasteur
Institute sub-station at Nikko, Japan,
where he will spend about six months
and then return to France. He is a
specialist in the diseases, cholera, ty
phus and syphilis.
Dr. Sautner was a fellow passen
ger from San Francisco of Miss Fay
Milburn cf Washington, who yester
day afternoon became the bride of
Lieut. Roland U Gaugler, of the 4th
Cavalry, stationed at Schofield Bar

A new charter and by-laws, -the for
mer setting forth the foregoing ob- 4
jjcts, were accepted yesterday after
noon at a meeting of the members of
the Associated Charities. s a re
sult, the organization will become a
corporation with a capital not to ex
ceed $500,000, and. when t:.!3 project
is completed, will be known as the
Associated Charities of Hawaii.
The action of the members of the
charities in voting to incorporate is,
perhaps, a direct outgrowth of the
business of the last annual meeting,
at which time a resolution was Intro
duced and accepted providing for an
extensive enlargement of the policy
of the Associated Charities. At a re
cent meeting of the members of the
organization the matter of a new char
ter and by-laws was taken up, and,
after some discussion, was referred
to the directors for their; considera
tion. The directors, in turn, referred
the matter to the executive commit
tee, v'
The executive committee appointed
a committee to draft a cnaner and by
laws consisting of Sanfora B. Dole,

The foregoing cablegrams, the first
to the governor and the second to
the Hawaii fair commission, received
this morning;, from Chairman H. P.
Wood of the commission, have caused
satisfaction in l various quarters. :.

building. It is just between the Fine
Arts building and the California build

and there- is! a large plaza- between
this and the Fine Arts building.
The Hawaii building will occupy a
much mere , advantageous site than
that of- any of the states whose lots
have been picked. It Is almost in the
center of he eries of sites and in
such a position that it can not but
attract the attention of all visitors.
Sidney Jordan, acting secretary of
the Promotion. Committee, called on
Governor Pinkham this morning to
show him the site selected. --
The governor expressed himself as
much ploased Iwith the new site,
