THE CLARION, Fort and Hotel Iened to German steamers on the mainland it would be. folly to con sider any further concessions. We should order the Pommern and Setos to outside anchorage immediately.' Commissioner C. J. McCarthy said he only differed from Commissioner Wakefield so far as the place where the steamers should be put.- "I want them by all means removed from the territorial wharves they now occupy," he said. "I am in favor of applying to the United States, engineer's office for permission to moor them in "Rot ten Row." ; ; After a general discussion of the situation, in which it developed that the board's plan is to anchor the Pom mern at the outer anchorage far enough ewa of the harbor entrance to keep her from blocking it in case her officers and crew should raise anchor and let the ship drift, opening the sea cock when she was directly across the channel, the board got down to business and passed the resolution or dering her out. It Is the board's in tention to tow her in again and tie her up with the Setos In Rotten Row after the "dolphins," or mooring piles, have been driven. The cost of the dolphins will be be tween 14000 and 5000, the cost of which the board plana to pay; by means of a special mooring charge. To legalize it a new ruling is to be made, probably .on the same basis as the present Kahulul mooring, rates. There is now no mooring charge at this port as all vessels use territorial piers and pay the regular wharfage rates. All three motions to move the Pom mem out, secure the. Setos. at her berth, and get permission to drive dolphins were unanimously passed by the board. The resolution .ordering ing. Taking provisions aboard would not require more than two or three hours. Assistant Harbormaster W. if. Curtis said at 12:30 this afternoon. If Capt. : in seen refuses to go outside the harbormaster is authorized to hire tugs and have the boat towed out . The Pommern is the largest of-the eight refugee German . merchant . ves sels in the port of Honolulu. She came- here seeking refuge on August 19, 1914, fleeing from Sydney, which port she was about to enter when her wire less caught news of warnings, caus ing her to turn back to Honolulu. The Pommern Is of 4086 net tons. She has a captain, six officers and 18 men in her crew. Governor Urges Extreme Caution At 1:45 this morning, immediately after the board had adjourned, the commissioners were requested by Secretary Will Wayne to meet with Governor Lucius K. Pinkham in the executive chamber. The' board at once conferred with the governor. It was learned that the executive read a letter he had writ ten against taking any action relative to the German refugee merchant steamers . which might be construed by the imperial German government as an act .of war, or w hich might re suit in any diplomatic complications He asked that - the board, in effect, keep the territory's skirts clear of Honolulu Lodge No. 618.

Hatch Thursday . on the 500000. in demnity bond which H. Hackfeld k Company refused to sign-was given by the board of harbor cdmmissloners at Its meeting today. The letter was mailed to Hatch by Smith.: " The board voted to approve Smith's reply, place a copy in the minutes and give out a copy for publication. Com missioner James Wakefield made a pertinent comment on a phrase of Hatch's attack in which the supervisor is quoted as referring to "certain over heated aliens," when he said: "It looks to me as though Super visor Hatch is suffering from overheat as well as the 'overheated aliens' to which he refers. Wakefield's remark drew smiles from all the commission ers.' ! . The deputy attorney general's letter of reply reads as follows: T. M. Hatch, Esq Honolulu, T. If. "Dear sir: On page Id, column 3, of this morning's Advertiser (March 16, 1917), I note the following statement, purporting to be a portion of an inter view attributed to you by the Adver tiser: - . ",'As to the unspeakable bond, what gratitude we owe to Messrs. H. Hackfeld & Co.. Ltd., for not signing it. A law officer of the gov ernment drafts a bond to compound a felony; to provide in advance a! maximum money penalty to cover liability for damage In case certain over-heated aliens conclude to com mit the contemplated felonies (in cluding murder). I say contemplat ed felonies; that is, those specified in the condition of the bond. It might be appropriate for some grand jury to give its views on this pro- '.; ceeding.' : "Inasmuch as I drew up the bond for the harbor board, I trust you will not deem it amiss if I request an ex planation, particularly of your sugges tion that a grand jury investigation of the 'proceeding might, be appropri ate. I can assure you that neither the harbor board nor myself,' at the time the bond 'was drawn and approved, realized for an instant that it could be open to the criticism of an attempt to compound a felony, any more than js your bond as supervisor, aa provided for by Sections 1670-1677.
