Commerce held yesterday aft , emboli. The meeting was called, ori ginally, to formulate some msthod to prevent the placing of an embargo on the shipment of luxuries to Hawaii, as was reported to Emil Berndt by cable to be": the intention of Pacific coast railroads. , J. T. Warren of the Honolulu Photo Supply Co., who was largely responsi ble for the calling of thel meeting yes terday to consider what effect the embargo would have, on certain Hono lulu merchants said in explanation that he had had a change of heart. At first he had thought perhaps it would be right to protest against the luxury embargo, but after conversations with a number of other merchants had de cided that, a sa matter of patriotism, fsacrif ice should be made if "sacrifice was . necessary.' .. What ho did object to, tnoiigb, was the possibility that ships might be, al lowed to come here empty for sugar cargoes as in the past.; He wanted ac tion taken that would assure all ships coming here loaded with merchandise. Mr. Warren feared that if the lux ury, embargo was imposed during the w ar a number of stores might have to close, or limit their business mate rially, his included.: It this was done it would throw a number of persons out of employment. "John Effinger favored securing the suspension of the : coastwise shipping laws for the Dutch boats and the T. K. K.; liners, 'as a means of affording some relief for the shortage of ship ping situation. He asserted that the T. K. K. company would not take the initiative to secure the suspension, but wanted to be requested by the government to handle freight or pas sengers for Honolulu. - Fred Bush of the Honolulu Iron Works said he doubted whether there was an ; embargo on Hawaii ; freieht CAPTAIN FILMER TAKES- r COMMAND OF KOREA MARU saY francisco, Oct. 29? with the arrival of the Korea Maru yester day afternoon, Captain WVC.

In all she brought 153 cabin, 40 second cabin and 342 steerage passengers. UiilNS UlvllLlf luLnnlJ HARBOR NOTES t: Plans are being considered by the harbor, board for the dredging of the harbor directly in; front of Kuhio wharf, Hilo. so arf to allow Inter lsland vessels to utilize the end ad joining the road that leads toward town.: :v .': The harbor - beard at a meeting yesterday afternoon . approved the form of a .letter to be sent, by the chairman v proposing . an agreement whereby the Inter-Island Steam Nav igation Company would" sign its will ingness to use a new wharf at Kuhio bay, Hilo. If the company agrees to use th6; wharf , for a period , of five years the harbor ..' board will com mence ' work within a short time. He had been of the impression that such was the case, although iron works freight continued . to come through. He had sent a; cable. to. the New York office' of his company, where it had been' ascertained that there was no embargo, he said. : ? Arthur Coyne, furniture dealer, was also;pf the opinion that, there was no embargo, as he continues to receive shipments of furniture. . -The retail board finally decided to appoint a committee -which will re quest the traffic and : transportation committee of the' Honolulu Chamber of Commerce "to secure all possible space privileges on steamers .calling v While there are accommodations for 400 passengers, two times Ihe number Ihe biggest Matson steamer will carry, there are not bathing facilities sufficient to accommodate one Hawaii family. . To be exact, deck charts of the Gov ernor and President show that on the three passenger-carrying decks there is just one bathroom. . And, poor male! this is marked "woman's , bath room." The staterooms are small," and square in shape, with a double deck of berths extending across one" end. On the side opposite tho "dressing sofa" is another berth. The theory is that the cabins will serve three pas sengers, and on a pinch four, when the sofa is forced into 'use. Othr ship's accommodations are in proportion to the single bathroom. As freight carriers the two Pacific coast vessels are nearly as disap pointing as they are as passenger ships. Their deadweight carrying capacity is estimated to be only 3000 tons. If the plans of the representative of the shipping board in San Francisco ate carried out Honolulu probably will see the first of these vessels on De- j cember 5," the date when the Matsonia was scheduled to make her next, voy age here. Earlier plans were to have one of them take the place of tho Maui on her next voyage, although this plan has been altered In order to accommodate the 22 congressmen. COOK COULDN'T COOK, CREW COULDN'T SAIL, v SCHOONER PUTS BACK SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 31 Cap tain Taylor, who took the-Seafarer from this port and who left her at Honolulu, is back in town, and yester day told some of his experiences. The Seafarer was formerly L. A. Norris' schooner yacht and was bought by Atkins & Kroll and transformed into a trading schooner for the copra trade. Captain Taylor took her out ml ; HONOLULU CONSTRUCTION & DRAYING CO., LTD PHONE 4-9-8-1 ; - mmm:m JJBELSERn : : STORAGE k TO 71 SOUTH QUEE1T ST. her with the. intention of delivering at Zamboanga." He said: "We left here with one other sail or on board besides myself. The others were useless. They could not go aloft and about all they could do was to haul on a rope if it were plac ed In their hands. That was bad enough but the cook could not cook. . "I found out that this cook was an English slacker. He got out of Eng land to avoid the draft and went to Australia. Then he left there to avoid joining the army and got to some- of the South Sea islands. His only experience In cooking, he con fessed to mc, was acting as chef for a gang of Portuguese railroad labor ers in Tahiti. "Then again there was no wind. The most we made in one day was 140 miles and it took us 25 days to reach Honolulu. There the whole crew quit. So I signed on a crew of Filipinos. This - time I tested, tho cook and he served up a good meal in port, but as ebon as we left Hono lulu be became so deathly seasick that I thought be would die. "None of the Filipinos could stand a trick at the wheel. They were all too seasick; My mate and I stood it as long as we could and then I put about and beat back against the trade winds to Honolulu. "Meantime another crew had been sent down from San Francisco, but they gof talking with my original crew and refused to go. A man nam ed Edmunds took my place. I hope he has a pleasanter yachting trip than I did.",-" PASSENGERS EXPECTED The following passengers are booked to sail by the , steamship Wilhelmina from San Francisco: Miss Lizzie Scharton, Miss M.

For 42 days the men sailed and rowed through the northern Pacific Ocean until they reached Ikeda Bay; Charlot te Island, September 10. : ..- 'v They were practically without food for a week before they reached Ikeda bay . No word had been received that the little craft in which they were sailing had capsized. After the Kotohira Maru crashed onr a rock in a heavy fog, July 27, the officers and crew put out in three lifeboats, well provisioned, and landed on Am chitka Island. -ATwo days were spent in dividing the stores and supplies saved in the hasty flight from . the doomed freighter and the three boats set out on. a' 600-mile voyage - to Unalaska. Two of the HfeboaU were forced to put back by a heavy storm, which arose shortly after they left the Island, but Captain M. Shibuya's boat was. unable to return to shelter and;was last seen battling the heavy seas.. Fujiwara' who spent tall the time with Captain Shibuya i gives a thrilling description of his adven tures: ;;: 'i ; ; 'Driven before a terrific; wind and mountainous seas, we grounded on the southern point of Amchitka is land on Jul v 27. after a ? hard but fruitless struggle, with the elements. We had only grounded a few minutes when the seas broke the engine room hatch, flooding the engine room and boiler room. The bulkhead gave way and hr quick time the holds were also flooded. As we ran great danger of being engulfed by the big 'seas, the boats were lowered on the lee side, and we were subsequently seated. This, was not easy to ac complish, but air aboard succeeded in getting! away from the vessel, which was abandoned to the storms : :c "We remained ashore for six 'days and then decided to divide ' the forty nine men Into three parties, one party to each lifeboat, and try . and make Dutch Harbor. On the evening ' of August .13 we' attempted to make Dutch Ha.rbor, but the weather pre vented us, and, running before the gale, we were driven, far to the south. On August 17 we brought up abreast of the Alaskan peninsula and were enabled to replenish our exhausted supply of water.. : i "The bad weather continued, and we decided to alter our plans land head: for Canada. We were at sea for several days before we were abje . . . ' - i - . - - ' - - iir . 'P.0anSSflainnisWBp oD DAYS TO SAN FEANCISCO ' Hegular Sailings to San Francisco and .Sydney, IT. S.
