Ambassador Page Going to Orient on Red Cross Mission On his way to the Orient on a RcC Cros mission. F. N Douoleday, whosa busins? parner is the American sin bassador to Grat Britain. Arthur W Pare of the firm cf Doubleday A Page, the big publishing house at Gat den City. Long Island, arrived in Ho nolulu Sunday from the mainland and ill stav over in the city for a few days. He is accompanied by Mrs Oonbleday, who is also an acme Amer lean Red Cross Society member "I used to be a publisher, but no I'm a Hcd Crosser," smiled Mr. Dou bleday, who in appearance is a wei. built man past the 50-year mark. A slightly gray mustache helps to con ceal the smile that ever hirks in th corner of his mouth and his twinkling eyes betrav the happiness that is hu s being wrapt up in Red Ctoks work for he has the sole charge of the Red Cross magasine. Last August II. P. Davison, head or the American Red Cross Society, glanced over the Red Cross magazine department, saw that the mgaziue was not even paying for Itself an l wired for F. N. Doubleday. Mr. Double- day went to Washington, and though a busy man wasted half a day waiting for an opportunity to see what it was that his friend Mr. Davison wanted. Mr Davison "wished" the Red Cro3 magazine on him. "Well." replied Mr. Doubleday, "the best thing I can suggest for any organ that's not paying is a polite death. I'll take it out in the bacit yard and kill it gently by raising tbe subscription price from 50 cents t $1." That was In August. The price wai raised to $1 and Doubleday & Page proceeded to make a magazine out of It. Today the Red Cross Magazine has a million and a quarter subscrib ers where it had 30.000 last August and Instead of losing money it Is making a profit of $20,000 a month for the Red Cross. "Before the end of 1918 it will have a circulation of two million.'' said Mr. Doubleday. "Our advertising rat have gone up from $30 a page to $1200 a page and everything in the magazine Is contributed but the adver tising "Coles Phillips, Charles Dana Gib son and other artists are drawing free tor us; writers of note send articles without charge and there Isn't a ceut made out of it that doesn't go to the Red Cross "The best thing about it is that the schools are taking it. The teachers are using 4t as a textbook more and more' and teaching the young children me laeats of tne Red Cross." - wttrt - ' . v.. i wouia mucn ratner prefer to tell ou when I come back from the Orient that I hare done instead of telling you now wnat I nope to do.

Adopting of the American cus tom of sending out wedding invi tations led to the tragedy. Ichi roku Sata. the prospective bride groom, escaped from immigration detention two years ago after he had been ordered deported be cauee he was the victim of a loathsome disease. Until Saturday no trace of him could be discovered and then there fell into the hand? of an immigration inspector an invita tion to attend Sata's wedding at Kwa that same evening. A hur ried trip was made to Kwa and the man apprehended At 5 o'clock that evening he was aboard a steamer bound for Japan. He begged for leniency, declaring that he hated to disappoint his bride, but without avail. Sata has a former wife and two children in Japan. He secured a divorce by correspondence, Japa nese style, since he escaped from the immigration station. Despite the intervention of Uncle Sam in Sata's marriage plans, the invited guests were all present at the hour set for the wedding Saturday evening. It is reported that when he failed to show up they consoled the expectant bride by eating and drinking all the wedding banquet delicacies. HALIFAX PROBE GETS AT STORY OF COLLISION Investigation of tbe Halifax dlsaa ter has not yet either confirmed or disproved the story of German agen cies responsible for the explosion,, ac cording to the latest information by mail. The inquiry is now revolving around the steamer Imo, at one time believed to have been sent purposely into the munitions ship, the Mont Blanc. : A despatch printed in the Pacific coast papers under date of December 14, says: -HALIFAX, N. S.. Dec. 14. There were no Germans or Austrians aboard the Imo's course prior to the collis Mont Blanc. Alex B. BJorssen, second officer of the Imo, testified at today's session of the government inquiry in to the explosion. So far as he knew the captain and pilot-were both on the bridge of the ship until after the col lision. He bad noticed no change in the Lmo's course prior to the collis ion. Twenty minutes elapsed, he said, before the explosion occurred. Changed Her Course "Bjorssen said he did not know the Mont Blanc was carrying munitions, and he recalled that while he was be low after the collision to see if the Imo was leaking, he overheard Third Officer Jonnas say the French ship could not be carrying munitions or she would be flying a red flag. BJor.v sen stated that if the Imo had not gone astern the French ship would have rammed her near the sterm on the port side. He said the Mont Blanc changed her course after three blasts on the whistle, swinging over to the Halifax side of the channel. Nearest Witness "Edward McCrossan, seaman, who was the nearest witness of the explo ion on a steamer in the-harbor. said the Imo struck the Mont Blanc near her No. 1- hatch. Less than a minute later, McCrossan said, he saw some thing rise from the deck of . the Frenchman. Then he 6aw the Imo's propellers going as she backed out from the Mont Blanc. As the two ves sels drifted apart McCrossan noticed a tiny flame on the munitions ship, just at the water's edge. From where he was the flame did not seem to be more than a couple of inches in ex tent, but it grew larger and larger, as the Mont Blanc drifted in toward tin pier, where she blew up. The seaman was able to give a graphic picture of the disaster." t IMMIGRATION EMPLOYES GRANTED XMAS HOLIDAY Telegraphic permission was receiv ed this morning from Washington granting that all employes of the im-. migration service, "who can be spar ed." a Christmas holif from today noon until Wednesday morning. As this is "war time" special per mission from the department in Washington had to be secured for granting this day and half holiday by Richard Halscy. the inspector in charge of the immigration station. Tbe telegram granted a holiday un der similar terms for the immigration staff on the last day of the year and for New Year's Dav. TWO RESERVE CORPS CAPTAINS ARE SUMMONED ' Two army field clerks, . quarter master department, were today cabled into active service as captains, reserve corps. These are ('apt. Charles A. Morrow; who is called to the states for duty, and Capt. Henry Cummihs, who win remain in this department, More than $250 was raised by the members of the Christian Church Bible school at the entertainment which was given on Friday evening at the church. This amount will be given to the starving children of Armenia. The play jiven was "Uncle Sam to the Rescue." - 4 MAYOR STANDS PATOHHAM FOR PARK SUPT. "The appointment of the parks su perintendent will take place Friday i.ight at the meeting of the loard. de clared Mayor Joseph J. Fern this morning. Will you reappoint A. K. Vierra? ' ho as asked. "i will not appoint A. K. V;erra un der any condition. John Markham's name is still on the table and 1 will put it before the board for confirma tion. The mayor has the power ot appointment and not the board of su pervisors, and 1 will not reappoint Vierra. "And if the board turns down the appointment of MarkhamT" the mayor was asked. "Then there is tne other candidate Valentine S. Holt." he replied, and when questioned what he would do if the hoard turned down Mr. Holt, he remained silent. At the meeting Friday night the board will also decide when to meet again to finish up the work of making up the 1918 budget. Little progress on the budget was made at the special meeting of the board held Sunday morning. The extraordinary large increase asked by Sheriff Charles Rose for his department drew forth some com ments. The increase was for $32.."3i for six months. The board referred it to the police committee for Investiga tion. Mayor Fern explained the large increase in incidentals for the band was needed because of the necessity of procuring new quarters for the players where they could practise without complaint on the part of the neighbors. The incidentals were laid over. Salary raises asked by heads of department for deputies were turn ed down. Following a long harangue by several members of the board on the way that certain civic officials waste the city's money for gasoline and tires it was decided to investigate tbe appropriations for incidentals ask ed by various departments. The mat ter of Dr. Ayer's car for which, one of the members of the board said, the city and county has to supply tires and gasoline, was referred to the po lice committee for investigation. ALL PASSENGERS ARE SUBJECT TO SEARCH FOR LETTERS TO HUNS Instructions have been received by the customs ofricers to search tne baggage and persons of all steamer passengers leaving this port in order to guard against letters and other forms of communication being sent to Germany or any country allied with her. Search is to b made of passengers and their baggage arriving here tbe same as those departing from main land ports. Violation or attempted violation of the war restriction against corres ponding with any person in Germany.

SPECIAL XMAS AT HEINIE'S There will be a special Christmas dinner served at Heinie's Tavern, "on the beach at Waikiki." tomorrow evening from 5:30 to 8:00, which will far outdistance any of Heinle's former triumphs.
