Capt. Nelson H. Duval and other mem
bers of the party. Col. Rees is in
charge ol the engineers on the island.

ilian in the territory thus far who has
applied for admission to the pas and
flame corps now forming at Washing

have been received from men in the

days ago, recruits are wanted at the
Hawaiian department engineer's office

have had to. be refused.
