A Franklin. This meant that the crew and pas sengers of both the Niagara and Ma kura. whether going south or north, will be prohibited from landing while in Honolulu. When questioned Tuesday regard ing the application of the order to Union Steamship Co. liners, the col lector first held thst vessels inward bound to British Colombia were not amenable to the rule. But this de cision haa been reversed, aa the or der plainly includes all veaaela bound for foreign ports, touching at porta of the United States. WITH COAL FOR II With from 6000 to 7000 tons of coal for the Inter-Island Navigation Co., the 8erspis, one of the former Ger man merchant vessels taken over by the shipping board, sailed from Van couver yesterday for Honolulu.

Java - like flavor it a Reason" SERAPI8 COMING MR-ISLAND Kills VAIRUNA MAY BE DRIFTING TOWARD COAST OF CHINA That the long OTerdue steamer Wal runa of the Union Steamship Co. is drifting towards the China coast Is tht latest theory advanced in San Fran cisco. If the vessel is still afloat her crew must be suffering terrible de privations for she only had food sup plies for a voyage of 17 or 18 days and the is now over 40 days over due on her voyage from Sydney to Ban Francisco. It is said there was little in her general cargo which could have been used to appease the hunger of the crew. Shipping men, however, are pessi mistic about the Wairuna being still afloat, although her San Francisco agents still cling to the belief that she will eventually make land. Some think that the earthquake which caused the Sonoma to be grounded at Turtle island baa destroyed the vessel, while others stick to the opinion that the Union liners are being destroyed, one bv one. either by agents or the Ger man government or by labor antagon ists of the company. If the Wairuna has sunk this will make the third ship ot that line lost since last Christmas. Cspt. Lorentxen ot the Hind, Roiph A Co. schooner Koko Hesd. advances the new theory that the Wairuna is drifting helplessly toward the China coast, with her engines disabled. After his arrival in San Francisco re sently from Papeete he was question ed by Reginald Beck, San Francisco agent of the Union Steamship Co. He said he had seen no vessels on the way from Papeete with the exception of ships that have been accounted for. It is Capt. Lorentten's theory, based on knowledge of the currents near the equator, that the Wairuna may be drifting toward the Chlneae coast Prna.rinr far a vorace which Will eventually taka her into the aubma rina zona in tha Mediterranean, a 4- masted full rigged aaillng ship, the Katharine, is Toaaing oauast tor a vovac to Manila where she will take en carco of tobacco for ahlnment to Spain. Waterfront men lay she may be the last tun rigged 4-master which will ever be seen in Honoima harbor, as this rig is becoming scarcer every year. The KJttnerine was xormeny u Countv of Llnllthrow and under the British flag, but during last Septem ber she was registered as an Ameri can vessel and given the name ahe now bara. Tha Katharine came here from Chili with 8398 tone ot nitrate. She is in command of Capt. zacaray who Avidantlv haa no fears but that he can evade German submarines.

K. liners to Hono lulu waterfront men is contained in the current Issue of "Japan," the mag azine published by this steamship company. Under the caption "Heard In the Captain's Csbln," this trsvei magazine says: "The Toyo Kisen Kaisha has been most fortunate in the masters who have had command ot the various steamers which the company has operated. With the start of the trans pacific aerviee by the three steamers, Nippon Msru, Hongkong Maru, and America Maru, all the masters were British-born, and the mates and chief engineers were, also, for several years. Gradually Japanese were trained to take the duties and now there are only two . non-Japanese . commanders left in the aerviee. Captain W. C. T. S. Fllmer and Captain H. Stanley Smith. "There la the retired commodore of the fleet now living In England, Captain W. E. Filmer. who brought out the Hongkong Maru from England where ahe was built and who is the father1 of Captain Fllmer, who is now in the service. "'Young' Fllmer, as he was known as long aa the commodore was In the service, to distinguish him from his father, la now In command of the big turbiner, Shfnyo Maru. He has been with the Toyo Kisen Kaisha for many years, coming to the company first as chief officer from the Shell com pany where he was junior snd first officer for several years. "Captain Smith is older in point of service with the company than any other commander. He was in com mand of the Rosetta Maru which plied between Hongkong and Manila in the years prior to the Russo-Japan war, and which was sunk during that con flict. He then came to the transpa cific service and haa been contin uously in the Shinyo and Tenyo for several years. "Rankina all the other Japanese masters in the company is Captain . Togo, now port captain of the royo Kisan Kaisha in San Francisco. He waa the firat Japanese to be given command of one ot the ' big three ot the fleet in the transpacific trade when he waa made akipper of the Tenyo iaru aeveral years ago. "He is a fine shipmaster and haa always been popular with the travel ing public. At present Captain Togo Is in Ban Francisco as port captain for the Toyen Kisen Kaisha. and at tends to the loading and repairs of the many vessels of the fleet, both transpacific and the South American passenger liners snd freighters. During 16 years that Dr. N. P. Crooks baa been in the service of the Toyo Kisen Kaisha aa ahip'a surgeon, he haa made 184 voyages across the Pacific and Is now on his one hundred and thirty-fifth on the Tenyo Maru, which aalled for the Orient late in June.
