That was the statement made l Thurstcn to the Star-Bulletin in re view lng the department's needs to day. ' These necessities for a better fire bureau cande purchased and in stalled and kept in running order at alt times without any increase In up keep or cost beyond the initial ex pense required in purchasing, he said. . Host important of the department's needs Is a combination gasoline pump in" vnglnc, chemical and nose appar atus, good for a speed of 20 to 30 miles and hour. This autoapparatus, Thurston says, would be a saving In upkeep cost over the horse-drawn ap paratus the bureau now has. In ad dition, the gasoline combination wag en takes the place of three vehicles and carries the firemen to the scene or the fire. It is equipped with 1000 feet of hose besides chemicals and the pump. The same engine that i used to propel the apparatus to the scene of the blaze is used on arrival to pomp water. "I am trying to convert this depart ment into a motor-apparatus bureau." said the chief, "and if I can get rid of the tire horse-drawn vehicles we are using and get motor-machines in stead, I can at once increase the ef H- itiency of the department ') ier cent. ; llorsea cost considerable to keep, while the gasoline apparatus costs enly when it is running. It has al ways given satisfaction where used.'.' The fire chief spoke enthusiastically 0FTSI1TAUIS TOLD IN LETTER (Continued from page one) ill!

The commissioner says the tracts, v.hich will be sold, either for cash or on time payments, are especially desirable as summer: or week-end homes. They are situated on the belt road around Oahu and thus easily accessi ble, while electric light and power In unlimited quantity will be available. The view and climate is unsurpassed, says Tucker, and altogether the lots are among the. best of their kind ever offered the public. The land commis sioner is a good land salesman and the tracts probably - will command top notch prices. " MAY START SUIT TO FJX BLAME FOR AUTO CRASH .

The next night we went out again and dropped a few mines, which afterwards one of the Japanese ships tried to play football with and got the worst of it. A few days later' on the 17th of Octo ber we got past . three destroyers un- notioed and gained the open sea, to attack one of the battleships prefer 'ably the Triumph. We had almost given up hope of sighting any of them when at last we spied the Japanese cruiser Takachlo. Wtgot within 300 yards unnoticed shot 3 torpedoes, "ev ery one hitting its mark and !n 40 seconds the Takachlo was torn to shreds. It was wonderful but takes some nerve. One of the torpedoes hit the ammunition room; 2 pieces of Iron weighing about 8 pounds each flew oyer on our boat and hundreds of smaller pieces besides, so you can imsgine how close we must have been. The Japanese had absolutely no time to. do anything at all. Of a crew of 325 only 12 were saved. After that, there was only one thing for us to do, that was to try and reach the coast somewhere under cover of the darkness before they captured us; there was no chance for us to get back to TBlngtau, and Shanghai was too far and unsafe. We landed In Gefion Bay,-, threw overboard all we could, blew up the boat and marched away in the dark night None of us was hurt. We marched for ten days including two rest-days over Ichaonsien, Itchoufou to Sautschan to the railroad. We rode on the train to Nanking where we were ' interned by the Chinese gov ernment But we can go and do where and what we want, I have been in Shanghai twice and go there again to morrow. The Chinese government treats us the very best, only they seem to be, a little scared of complica tions. During the first days of the bom bardment of Tsingtau from the sea side most of the shooting was . done by the Japanese battleships "Sawo" and "Tango," which shot with their 30, 5 cm. guns and the British bat tleship "Triumph" with' the 25. 4. cm. guns. The otherwise so proud Brit ons!. I wonder if they regarded it as a Triumph, that one of their admirals stood under the command of a Japa nese admiral? And that their flagship trailed as the last ship behind the Japanese? Britannia rules the waves? What about it! i We left ; Tsingtau on the 17th of who sv thev witnessed the flight of a big automobile proceeding in tile direction of Ewa at a speed of from 30 to 40 miles an hour the night of the tragedy. The iolice have been told that immediately after the ma chine collided with the aged man all lights were extinguished, making it impossible to read the number on the rear and the front of the car. Several army men and women are believed to have been passengers on a ride which brought death to Kauhi okalani. The deceased had resided on this island for 56 years. He leaves a wife and two children in destitute circum stances. The wife learned for the first time this morning of the death of her husband. ; Enlisted men returning: to teir posts at Fort Shafter after a New Year's celebration found Kauhiokalani lying in the road. He was then dying and could make no statement. MISS CATHERINE HICKEY TO WED MR. H. C. BRUNS Announcement was made today of the engagement of Miss Catharine Elizibeth HIckey to Mr. Harry C. Bruns. Both of the young people are well known here. Miss Hickey has been a resident of Honolulu for some two years! Mr. Bruns is known all over the islands. He is treasurer of the Coyne Furniture Company.
