(Special SUr-Sun-tla Oorttwyoadmc )
WAILUKU, Maul, May 22.--Mucb
speculation haa been occasioned dur
ing the past week by the presence off
the Maul coast of a mysterious two-
funnel steamer. The stranger has
been reported from several sources so
there seems little doubt that ahe was
not somebody's "pipe dream." But
what she is or what her business is
in these waters is still a mystery aa
far as Maun Is concern ta.
The ship was first reported oft west
Maul on last Friday and waa watched
from the cliffs by Capt Parker, iCahn
lul pilot and others1, who were unable
to come to any conclusions concern
ing her. -i
A Matscn steamer, in Kahulul har
bor at the time, on her way, to Hilo,
took no chances on being 'captured
or sunk by a German raider, and
waited until after nightfall before
sailing, and then did . so with all
lights doused.
Submarine investigates
The stranger had been reported in
Honolulu by an Inter-Island vessel,
and this possibly resulted in the pres
ence of one of the K submarines from
Pearl Harbor off shore on Molokai
and Maui for several days. .
On Wednesday, Capt Harbold. U.
S. A., and a contingent of national
guardsmen armed with service rifles, i
made a cruise by sampan out beyond
Kahoolawe on a reconnoltering expe
dition. They did not succeed in-rais
ing the hypothetical raider.. Another
sampan party which tried to approach
the vessel caused it fto steam up and
disappear over the horizon,' according
to one report f
May Be Japanese Collier-
The fact that the Japanese cruiser
Azuma, bearing the oody of. the late
U. 8. ambassador to Japan, G. W.
Guthrie, whd died at his post recent
ly, has been In Honolulu -lor . some
days, has led to the suggestion that
the vessel may be a Japanese collier
which is accompanying the war craft
The fact that Japanese war vessels
have used these waters previously as
coaling grounds lends some color to
this supposition. ' '
Was Seen By Claudine
That the mysterious - vessel was.
either ft Japanese scout boat or col'
ller which is accompanying the Azu
ma to the coast is believed by Capt
William G. Bennett of the Inter-Island
steamer Claudine. Capt 'Bennett
sighted the steamer a week ago Mon
day night She was 'cruising slowly
between Makapuu Light and the
northwest end of Molokai. He could
not make out how many . funnels she
had, or her nationality, i Returning
from Kahulul to Honolulu,- tha vessel
was . not seen. The ! captain" thinks

NEW TAIL SHAFT
"On the shelf" for a new tail shaft,
the Oahn Shipping Company's power
schooner J. A. Cummins went on the
Inter-Island drydoCk today and will
be on for several days.
Supt Eben Low of the shipping
firm said this morning the Cummins
broke her tall shaft Saturday night
between Makapuu Point and Diamond
Head. The shaft's breaking made the
schooner lose br propeller.
' Using sails, the Cummins was able
to reach a point nearly off Diamond
Head, when the wind gave out Her
chief engineer hailed a fishing sam
pan at daylight and came Into. port,
where he notified Supt Low, who
took the launch Elizabeth and towed
the Cummins to her berth.
Reports are in circulation today
along the local waterfront that the
steam schooner Columbia, now the
property of the U. S. shipping board,
having recently been purchased ay the
United States, will bring 12.000.0JO feet
of lumber from northwest lumber ports
inis summer, to reari Harbor naval
station.
. The Columbia will make a dozen
trips, it is said, bringing a million
feet of lumber on each voyage. The
lumber will be used In constructing
the group of naval storehouses and
other structures at the big naval base.
The contract for the buildings was let
a few weeks ago. m
On her next arrival here the Colum
bia will have a cargo of coal for the
Inter-Island Steam Navigation Com
pany. She will tow one vof the ex
German merchant steamers from Hono
lulu to the mainland tor repairs.

COD FISH ELEET
READY FOR DASH
TO NORTHERN SEA
ply Aiioctotd fnu)
SEATTLE Ore. The North Pacific
cod fishing fleet of twenty-five sailing
vessels, divided almost equally In
owership among San Francisco, Puget
Sound and Alaska is in Northern
waters, fishing along the Aleutian
Islands and waiting for the ice to
break sufficiently to permit the boats
to operate in Bering sea,, which is
closed half the year. The codfish
schooners are the first vessels to en
ter Bering sea In the spring. The
fish are caught with hand lines
operated by men In dories, the same
as in the Newfoundland fisheries.
The schooners lie often for a long
time in the same place while fishing
is good, a ue men, each In a dory,
leave the ship In the morning snd re
turn at night or when the dory Is
loaded with cod.
A gilded codfish hangs in the
Massachusetts state capital in Boston,
a cod was engraved on the seal of the
Massachusetts colony and the first
Nova Scotia bank note had a cod
printed on it but the codfish of the
North Pacific ocean In unhonored and
unsung. Naturalists are still engaged
in cotroversy over whether the
Atlantic and Pacific fish are the same
species, but the consensus of opinion
is that they are identical. When
served on the table the fish of the
two oceans have the same appearance
and . favor. For many years the
North Pacific cod was regarded as an
inferior fish and to this day Glouces
ter codfish are sold in retail stores
on the Pacific coast. The Alaska cod.
however, is driving out the Easterner
and even getting a foothold in distant
markets, large orders having been re
ceived recently from the West Indies
and South America.
Fishermen say that the old pre
judice- against the Pacific cod was due
to the careless way In which it was
handled. In the realy days the fish
were dumped into the dirty holds of
the fishing ships, the salting being
badly done. When unloaded the fish
were rusty, grimy and otherwise un
attractive. Now the fish are pre
pared as carefully as those of .the
Newfoundland banks. Each year the
catch in Alaska waters increases, the
number taken last year having been
nearly four million larger fish.
Fish experts say the North Pacific
cod fishery may yet outrank the sal
mon; fishery. The fishing banks of
the Aleutian islands and Bering sea
are said ttr be as extensive as those
of Newfoundland,1 which are regarded
as - inexhaustible? Several' years ago

USE FOR VANADIUM
