This steamer, operated by Arm strong & Armstrong, the British, syn- ington islands; arrived today from one of Its periodical visits to Fanning with supplies for the industrial colony there. . According to the reports, the Ger man landing force from the Nurnberg not only made sure that the cable was cut; but also that the station appar atus and buildings were wrecked be yond any hope of hasty repair by the cable company or British forces.. The news that came today confirms earlier reports here that ' when ; communica tion' between ; Vancouver island, B. C. and Australasia, by way if Fanning, was interrupted oa:-. September 7, the Germans did a complete job of it. : On the other hand, one report has It that enough repairs have, been made to re-establish communication from Fanning southward. In some details, though not in essen tial particulars, stories from various sources aboard the ship were told here a little at variance today. Captain Tin dell, skipper cf ' the Kestrel, : de clined to make any statement this morning and the cause of his peculiar reticence was quickly disclosed when, he stated1 that he wanted to be paid for giving the information to' the news papers. Failing to receive any offer of money in exchange for a statement, he relapsed into silence and would be of no assistance.

One report is that the cable station colony was taken completely by sur- prise wnen tne Germans landed; an-1 other that the Nurnberg flew a French a party in a boat . , It appears that shortly after the Nurnberg left Honolulu she must have picked up a friendly collier lying somewhere near local waters, for it is EASTERN BIDS TOO SHALL; TERRITORIAL TREASURER WHICH ARE DECLARED TO BE TOO LOW GOVERNOR ANSWERS WITH INSTRUCTIONS TO I REJECT ALL TENDERS LOCAL BIDS ARE ACCEPTED - ; - Hawaii is to feel the deterrent ef fect of the European war.- All the eastern bids for the new territorial bond Issue, of which 750, 000 was to. be floated this month, wUl be rejected, because, with only one exception, the tenders were at figures lower than 98 per cent of par, while the total number of bonds bid for at New York was only 155,000. . Governor Plnkham received a cable from Territorial . Treasurer Conkling this morning stating that, only five bids' for the purchase of the Hawaiian bond issue were received and opened at New York yesterday. The message said that the highest bid offered 98, while the other four ranged downward to 70. The territorial bonding act sets 98 as the lowest figure at which any territorial Issue may be sold. In consequence the governor cabled Conkling today to reject all. the east ern tenders" , ' , ' ; This does not mean that the .blda received at the treasury office at Ho nolulu by local Investors yesterday, are to be rejected, however. On the contrary the latter are accepted and the sale of at least 160,800. of the Issue is thus assured at home. -A . .
