the following islands, rather than via
Honolulu
"Our largest island. Hawaii, is now
being provided at its main port, Hilo.
with a very extensive breakwater, par
tially complete that will assure a most
ample harbor for its tribuiary intern
al commerce, and su h transpacific
commerce as may make it a port of

"The commerce of the island of
Maui ig of local origin and no trans
Pacific call port business is expected..
At Kahului it has a good protected
harbor, which, in ome respects, might
be Improved.
"The island of Kauai enjoys some
' direct open roadstead shipping con
nection with the mainland. There is
; an endeavor to concentrate at one
port, go a reasonable showing can be
made to apply for a breakwater.
."The territory does not present an
unlimited field for internal commer
cial expansion.' but seeks to fully
profit by it mid-ocean situation as re-
juieu to irans-i -acme commerce as a
port of call and supply, and particular
ly that "reaching the Pacific Ocean
through the Panama canal.
"In considering this question we
may well draw a lesson from the
great ports of call in the Far East
such as Manila, Hongkong. Shanghai,
Kobe, and Yokohama, for their expe
rience with through traffic via the
Suez canal will be little varied in our
future experience in Honolulu.

handed you herewith. Indicates that,
with the wharf improvements decid

the not distant future of the navy de
partment to Pearl Harbor and the re
lease thereby of wharves No. 5 and
No. 5a, all shipping that requires
berthing can be accommodated.
' iln the ports of call I have men
tioned the transient' through shipping

allows both sides of steamers to be

and from the wharves. I
.This we show by the red lines as

"position, for egress from wharf or har
bor. From this it is perfectly obvious
that Honolulu needs anchorage space
and moorings to hold against the
swinging of vessels by tide aud wind,
the former is moderate and the winds
are rarely of great effect.
"We should be able to accommodate
at one time six large steamships at
anchorage with space for lighterage.

Duplicate Time on Long Voyage.
Having left Portland April 5. the
schooners Samar and Encore, both
laden with lumber, arrived at their
destinations on the west coast of
South America recently, completing
the passage In 67 days. The Samar
went to Callao and the Encore to Val
paraiso. A message relative to their
arrival was received by the Mer
chants' Exchange.
That, they left in company and
reached their destination on the same
day is .regarded in shipping circles as
remarkable, particularly when. .out ''oh
such a long voyage. The. run was con

time occupied by sailing vessels cov

was in command of Captain Asmussen
and the Encore of Captain Palmgren.
Each carried less than l.OOP.DOO feet
of lumber.

French Flag in the Philippines.
The" much talked of French steam-
ship line between Saigon, Halfong
and Manila will soon be a reality, the
first of the French steamers, the Phu-
yen, being due at the Philippine -port
about July. The new line is the Com-
pagnie d' Extreme Orient, a French
company of 4,000,000 francs capital,
with headquarters at Paris.
' At first there will be but one vessel
on the run and a monthly service will
be maintained during the rice season.
Later it is believed that more vessels
will be added. This will be the first
time in many montho that a vessel
flying the tricolor of France has
dropped anchor in Manila bay.
Unwritten Law of the Sea.
There is another of these unwritten
laws which we think could be re-
pealed to advantage. It is that which
requires the captain of a ship to stay
on the bridge during fog or very bad
weather, no matter who long it con
tmues. It is a fairly common thing
to read in dispatches that the captain
of this or that. ship had been on the
bridge for twenty-four or twenty-eight
or even sixty hours at a stretch be
cause of storm or fog. Why should
this be the practice? The most rug-
ged man alive cannot be as alert,

age transpacific passenger, we fancy,
would much prefer to trust his life in
an emergency to a feesh chief officer
than to a jaded captain.

PLEA NOW MADE
FOR IMPROVED
WIRELESS
In sp.te of the willingness of the co
lonial government of Hongkong to
meet the wishes of t.ie commercial
and shipping interests of the colony
in the establishment of adequate
wireless connections with other parts
of the Far Fast, definite action has
been prevented by various circum
stances and for rarious governmental
reasons and apparently the colony is
no inarer a realization of Its demands
in this line than it was four years
ago when an American concern
sought a concession from the colo
nial government for establishing a
service in the colony. The colonial
government has 'made an appropria
tion from year to year for the estab
lishing of a plant and it is now prom
ised that something definite may be
done in the course of the coming
summer. In the meanwhile the col
ony is without wireless service ex
cept such as is possible from the pres
ence of mail ships and warships in
the harbor from time to time which
may be in a position to transmit mes
sages within the limitations and re
strictions upon such service bv local
law.
In connection with the proposed
Hongkong service considerable local
importance is attached to the conces
sion granted by the legislature, of the
Philippines in its recent special ses
sion to the Marccnt Wireless Tele
graph Co. of America for the establish
ing of a wireless plant for long dis
tance service, especially to Hongkong,
Singapore, Shanghai, Japanese ports,
and other points.
The company's concession runs tor
50 years and the concern is given the
right to construct a plant in the isl
ands ror long-distance service, the ser
vice not to be allowed within the isl
ands without rurther authority rrom
the insular government. The com
pany pays 1 per cent ot its gross re
ceipts as a tax on its franchise. It
must begin the construction or this
long-distance plant within two years
and complete it within rour years.
The company's station may consist
of two parts, one ror receiving and
the other tor sending. The plant is
subject to preemption by the federal
or territorial governments in case ot
war or insurrection.
"Bob" Menary is Promoted.
R. V. Menary, who but a few years
ago, became identified with the Matson
Navigation Company and recently
stepped ' from he Enterprise of ' the
Hilo service to the Lurluie, only to
be called to take up far more import
ant duties on board the Wilhelmina,
arrived at the port today as purser in
Captain Peter Johnson's command.
Menary is a popular official with the
