Dec. lo.Offt ccrs of the Union Steamship Com pany's steamer Paloona. which arriT ed here yesterday from Tahiti with the marooned victims of the Seeadle? aboard, said they had recognized the steamer Maverick, suspected of oper ating as a German raider since the disappearance last August, about 6)0 miles from San Francisco, on the route to Honolulu. On the night of December 8. the of ficers said, they sighted a vessel ap parently -wrapped in flames. They put over their vessel to give aidi only to make out the silhouette which stooa out against the ragged spot of ligh. in the background of sea and night as that of the Maverick. The outlines of the vessel were declared to be dis tinctive and unmistakable. The Maverick, formerly owned by Captain Fred Jebsen, dropped out of sight last August while on a run from Manila to the canal. Reports that a German raider had been operating in the Pacific have led masters to be ex tremely careful. It is believed by many in marine circles that the Mav erick, a fourteen-knot boat, is lying in wait for 6ome faster vessel which the crew hopes to capture and turn into a second Seeadler.

DECLARES COLLEGE OF HAVAII REGENTS RIGHT IN THEIR STANI Honolulan Says Bitterness of War Warps Judgment in At tacks on College Faculty Members for Alleged Dis loyalty December 22. 1917. Editor Honolulu Star-Bulletin. Sir: Permit me to take this occa sion to congratulate Mr. Farrington and the other members of the Board of Regents of the College of Hawaii on the stand they have taken with refer ence to the two instructors at the lo cal college, who were charged with disloyalty to our country by idle and gossip mongers. By this act alone. Mr. Farrington has shown that he is a patriot and, at the same time, a Just and conscientiou3 man. The hatred and bitterness of the war, resulting from the barbarous acts of the Huns, have made inroads into our daily lives, and we are gradually carrying this war against our neigh bors who, perhaps, have never offend ed us except in difference of opinion. Hence, it is very difficult to find a patriot now-a-days who is also just and conscientious. As I understand it, the purpose of a college is to seek after truth. This is more so in view of the fact that our college was created primarily for scientific investigations. Science is an effort to obtain truth. That being the case, the feeling of bitterness and hatred of this war should never be a factor in deciding ,who should or should not be teachers in the college. The sole ami only question, it seems to me, should be whether the instructor is competent aud efficient. Academic freedom should not only be encour aged but insisted upon in order that the end of scientific research be at tained. The instructors, who were so un ceremoniously and unnecessarily brought into public scrutiny, have never been guilty of any specific act of disloyalty to our flag. Miss Math ews, who can trace her ancestry bacK to the landing of the pilgrims, has more claim to being a good citizen than her accusers ever desire or hope to be. She has shown explicitly and conclusively In her answer to Presi dent Dean's inquiry that prior to the United States' entrance into this cata clysm, sne was neutral, absolutely aeainst this war in any shape or form. She was loyal to one flag only, and that flag is the Stars and Stripes. When our country entered the war, she followed the lead of the presi dent, suppressing whatever personal opinion 6he might have entertained previous to the declaration of war. To her the paramountcy of the United States is unquestionable, and yet she has been accused of acts of disloyalty. I challenge her accusers to state wherein and whereby they are any more loyal than she is or was. 1 doubt whether they had been as neu tral and loyal to the United States as Miss Mathews had been before wo joined the Allies. The question fore most In my, mind is whether these people, particularly those who had been naturalized, are permitting their feelings for the country in which they were born to obstruct the performance of their duties as American ritlzens and public servants. If the perform ance of these duties were made sub servient to the feelings for the coun try of their birth, then it would be an outrage and the. height of inconsist ency to bring a lady of Miss Mathews' scholarship and refinement into the public press. To say the least, it is unchivalrous, not to say indecent. Respectfully yours, HOOX WO WONG. vThc coody that Is 4 beneficial to teeth and stomach Is best for chlMixfi?
