Since yes terday morning he has been, receiving applications for enlistment, and now has enough for a full company. How ever, other applications will be received .and the best men picked when the time comes. The project has received the approval of Col. J. W. Jones of the First Regi ment, and the Adjutant General. Gov ernor Dole will this afternoon be asked to give his endorsement, and will doubt Jess comply. A long telegram to the .Secretary of War offering the services of the company will be sent forward by the Peking tonight. Captain Klemme will command the Honolulu contingent. First Lieutenant W. R. Riley of Company B, has prac tically been selected as first lieutenant. A second lieutenant will be chosen lat ter. Members of every company in the JFlrst Regiment have volunteered for the Avar. Most of them are crack shots and thoroughly drilled. Sergeants and cor ' norals of long standing are among the volunteers. In fact. Indications now are that the cream of the local military will be In the company to serve Uncle Sam in the far-east. If the contingent is accepted an officer to muster the men In will oe nppointeu 'This may be a man on one of the trans- Tort8, or the major at camp Mcivimey. A discouragement In the way Is that numerous offers from other States and Territories have been refused ror tne reason that the Secretary of War Is only authorized to extend the military fnree to 100.000 men. Cnntaln Klemme is a life-long mili tary man. He was one of the first to volunteer his services for Manila, and would have gone had a contingent from Honolulu been mustered in. I IS THERE HOPE FOR WHITES IN PEKING? A Report That Tells of a Rescue Brit ish Minister's Urgent Call for (By the S. S. City of Peking.) YOKOHAMA, July 17. According to a Peking despatch dated the "th inst., received bv the Actlntr Viceroy of Che- klang and Fuklen, General Nieh has en tered Peking with the object or recu inir Prince King and relieving Yulu. The two remaining Legations were at the same time rescued, and it was rtls covered that the German Minister only had been murdered. The Boxers were in low spirits. Prince King and Yulu had received secret Instructions from the Empress-Dowager to attack the Boxers with the forces of Generals Nlch and Sun. The situation In Peking was less critical than before. .A Tsl-nan-fu telegram to Shanghai on July 14th, reports that General Tung Fuhslang's troops attacked the Lega tions on the Cth Inst., that 5 officers and a considerable number of men of the forelcn forces were killed on that occa sion. that on the following day, the 7th, the Chinese troops and the Boxers again attacked the Legations but failed to carry them; that Tung's forces are using cannon, and that the position of the Legations Is extremely critical. An official telegram to the Japanese Foreign Office from Shanghai, dated July 10, states that the following tele gram had been received from a trust worthy source: "A messenger who has arrived in Shantung has brought news of Peking up to the Cth Inst. He stated that two Legations were still standing. The numbers and Influence of the Boxers at Peking were continually decreasing." CHEFOO. July 2. News of the ut most Importance came today with the arrival of a native courier from Peking. He bore the following letter, addressed to the officer commanding any Europe an troops: "Besieged In British Legation. Situ ation desperate. Make haste. Sunday 4 P. m. R. HART.'

Physician Who Attended the Wounded Soldiers After Their Return Dcnounq es Sensational Report as False. Dr. G. P. Smith, who was In chargo of the military hospital, at Tientsin until July 5, arrived today on the Peking from Nagasaki. Jle was prqsent In the city thrdughouSthe entlro bombard ment of the 'English settlement, and saw Admiral Seymour's relief column start for and return from Peking. 'The report that the Admiral killed his wounded men In order to prevent their falling Into the hands of the ene my Is absolutely false," he declared. "I met the column when It urrlved, and I attended the wounded men after their eturn. I talked with them and I will positively say that such a report Is not the truth. The Admiral had barely enough men to carry back his wounded. Had he not had to do this he would not have abandoned the Hsl Gu, the extensive fort and arsenal of the Chinese in the main city of Tientsin. The bombardment of our settlement be gan on June 14. and continued until l came away. The Boxers burned our chapels, and attempted the night of June 15, to set fire to the Roman Cath olic Cathedrfilt The small guard which was left to look after the place was ham pressed for days and nights, ana tm tne 19th, they nearly succeeded in tiling the town, for ail or tne troops were npnrlv worn out. The station was the objective point of nearly all of their attacks. This was held by the Rus sians. On Tuesday, the 13th, tnn de fenders were tired out, and but f r the enforcement of 300 British blue juck- ets, who charged the Boxers with bay onets, they would have taken the town, perhaps and captured us. "By this time the town was In desper ate straights, and finally, a Mr. Watts, a famous- rider, volunteered to ride thir ty miles with three Cossacks to TaKU Fort for reinforcements. The reinforce ments came, and several days after their arrival Admiral Seymour signalled fi-nm the other side of the town or 'ilen- tsin that he was sorely pressed and In need of assistance. A relief force of fmm 1.000 to 1.2000 men was nastily got ten up and started at midnight to work its way around the Boxers. The latter attacked them, but the allies forced their way through and enecteu ine re lief of Admiral Seymour's brave band." WASHINGTON. July. IS. The Pom v. office Department has ordered thul, be ginning with August 1, all mulls for the Hawaiian Islands shall be forwarded exclusively to San Francisco or other American ports for dispatch and that the present practice or uispatcmng mallB via Vancouver, B. C, be discon tinued. Postmaster Oat, on being shown the above, said: "That is the first 1 hatl seen or heard of the matter. At the same time I have no reason to uouot Its accuracy. I suppose the department has reasons for not wlsning to senu mall a few ml es out of the country only to be brought back again. The meaning of the- despatch Is very clfcur. In future mall will come from Ameri can coast ports only, and none via Van couver. This has nothing, however, to do with English and Canadian mulls. They will come via the Vancouver steamers as before. 'I have received no instructions in regard to the matter so that I do nr,t know whether the order works both ways or not. If 1 get no Instructions to the contrary I will send mall by the steamer leaving here next Wednesday for Vancouver." At the office of Theo. Jl. Davies & uo., agents for the Canadian line of steam ers, the following statement was giv en out: "We have received no ndvlces In regard to the American mall, and therefore we do not Know wnetner tne telegram from Washington Is correct or not. It is probably correct, altnougn the policy of most countries now is to facilitate the dispatch of mail in every possible way. It would seem that a move of this kind would prove at times a great hardship to Honolulu, If not to coast shipping men. "We have heard nothing regarding the discontinuance of the culling of the Canadlna steamers at this port, and have no Idea as to what will be done." The first steamer of the Canadian line arrived here from Sydney on Juno 1, 1S93, and was heartily welcomed as op ening the opportunities for new com mercial advantages. Such pr.ved to bo the cuse. Washington anil Oregon quickly built up an Immense trndo In feed stuffs, cereals anu neer in me ib lunds, nnd Honolulu sent back largo quantities of fruits and the like to Sound markets. The United States ruled first that this traffic must stop, ns It took the business from American ships.

VlllilSll Heads of Departments Make Name Conform to American Custom Prog ress In Extending Streets. The name of the old Executive build ing will In future be "capitol." This was decided upon by the Executive this morning, and becomes official at once. From June 14 the Star has called the building "the capitol," which, with an nexation, becomes the proper name for It. At the meeting held this morning Mr. McCandless made severul Interesting reports in regard to streets. Vineyard street, he said, would be extended to Llllha In the next few days. The Su perintendent submitted a map of the purposed extension of Kukul street and the lands required. He wns authorized to go ahead and obtain the land needed for the extension. The street will come out on Emma near Emma Square. With regard to Chinatown the Superin tendent reported great difficulty In get ting land from the owners. He was In structed to proceed to condemn such lnnd as was. required. Mr. McCandless also referred nt some length to the wid ening of Walklkl, saying that the prop erty owners along the route were fav orable to the Improvement, and were willing to make reasonable terms. He thought that within affiw. days tangible terms of settlement would be reached. Mr. Lanslnc renort&l' an application from the Ornheum Cftmnany for an nmendment to Its charter reducing the number of directors from fourteen to seven. This was approved. Akl & Co. of Wnlmea, Hawaii, applied for a light wine and. beer license, Re ferred to Sheriff AiTdrews. The Hawaiian Electric Company ap plied for permission to. drill an nrteslan well on the premises of the Sailors' Honie, which belongs to the Govern ment. The Executive thought the first thing the company should do Is to get permission to lay pipes under the street from the home to the power house. If this can be gotten from the road de partment the request nlready submitted will probably be granted. The application of the Hilo Railway Company to extend its line beyond the second division, from Walakea to Puna, wns considered, but no action was tak en. Governor Dole reported the letter from the Secretary of the Interior re questing a report for the whole period between July 7 and tlle.4resent. This wns referred to at length In the Stnr of yesterday. WAR CORRESPONDENTS. Martin Egan anil Ralph Payne for the Orient. A reflex Of the events in China is found in the number of war correspond ents making haste to the scene "of ac tion. There were two on the Rio, both men who have made reputations not only n Journalism, but In the particular branch of Journalism they now go to prosecute. They are Martin J. Egan of the San Francisco Chronicle, and Ralph Payne of the Chicago Record. Egan went to the Philippines for the Chronicle, immediately atter the battle of Manila Bay, and his dispatches from there and the work he did established his reputation ns an energetic nnd cap able man. On his return to the main land he was sent to New York to rep resent his paper there, and after at tending both National conventions, he was sent on eleven hours notice to the orient. v Ralph Payne has had almost as ro mantic a career as a war correspond ent as anyone whose name has appear ed among the lists of war corresponds ents. He was in Cuba for months be.-, fore the Spanish-American war broke , out, with the filibusters and revolution ary Cubans and had many-daring and hairbreadth escapes. After the war be gan he was with the American forces from the beginning to the the end of the war.

A Man Who Makes His Living by Chewing Awa The Story of an Ex citing Hula. A professional awa-chewer was the principal character in a case which oc cupied about an hour of Judge Wilcox's time yesterday. He was Kuhao the complaining witness In the mayhem case against Kaapana. Kuhao appear ed In cOurt with an artificial nose, which had been grafted by the doctors at the Queen's hospital, after the trou ble with Kaapana resulted In loss of the old one. Kuhao told Judge Wilcox a long and entertaining story of a luau and hula at which he was the chewer, getting a liberal share of the drink for his services, and at which the nose was lost. According to Kuhao's account there was a glorious hula before Kaapana turned loose. It occurred at a native dwelling In Nuuanu on June 9th. Kaa pana and his wife arrived very late In the evening, when the hulas were about over, but, as Kuhao put It, she wanted to hula some and they gave her a chance. He said she hulaed very well, and then asked to be taught some new things about the dance. The leader of the party said she knew all about It and had nothing to learn, whereupon the row began. Kuhao was quietly chewing his awa root, In order that there might be plenty of awa to drink, and lis had a lot of poi bowls round him, one of which he would now and then put to his lips. Kaapana began to kick the bowl3 around, he put out the lights and then suddenly accosted Kuhao with an in vitation to fight. Excuses were not nccepted, and the fight began. It ended, according to Kuhao, in his nose being bitten clean off, and In his receiving other bites on the cheek and finger. The victim admitted that he had hud so much awa that he didn't feel It at all and didn't know till afterwards when his Wife exclaimed "Papa, you've got no nose!" He knew what went on, how- , ever. "Awa makes you numo, lie toiu the Judge "but It's not like a whiskey Jag, because a man can see and hear what goes on." Kuhao's unfortunate encounter made him the subject of an Interstlng opera tion jnt the hospital. The' dctors took skin from near where, the- nose had been' and laid it over In the form of u new nose. The grafting' was success- I ful and Kuhao now has something t f a f nose. "This is all new," he told the judgq, touching It gently and going closeHo the bench, so that hU honor might inspect.

EDITOR STAR The reformers are happy to suffer for the righteousness and good of their native land, even un to death. Our desire Is not alone to effect the enthronement of our Emper or, but to completly reform the gov ernment of our country and place It In the hands of good officials who are ac quainted with the right plans of gov ejrjiment. The newspapers of yesterday eeerhed to regard the representatives of the""Chliiese Empress as timid men. Why? Bec.TUse.they have acted unjust--ly and without conscience. Take the case of John the Baptist. After the ex ecution of John, King Herod felt so miserable that he went nnd killed him self. It would be well for both consuls to think of the conscience of that man, who killed himself for having caused the death of but one person. Although miseries and hardships are falling upon the Reform party they cannot banish our true hearts or diminish our enthu siasm. It is a certainty that blessings and happiness follow persecution and revllement, nnd so It will be with the reformers. Therefore, I say to my re form brothers, "Keep courage and be of good cheer, and let us all hope that the light will no longer be dimmed." A CHINESE REFORMER. MAY RECALL MISSIONARIES.

Three Hundred Dollars for a Mere Chance of Getting Into the Country Eight Sent Back. Eight Chinese who came here on the steamship Rio on her last call here, from China, were sent back as reject ed today, by the United States Immi gration Bureau. They had bought their certificates in China from Mongolians who had left Honolulu with certificates allowing them to return. The prices paid Bhow the great value which Chi nese place upon the privilege of enter ing the United States. In one case, ac cording to Information gathered by the Inspectors, the sum of $323 was paid for a certilioate, upon which the purchaser could have no certainty, but simply n mere hope, that he might get into the country. The Rio left the Chinese here on June 30, when she arrived with a large num ber of them In her steerage. All were taken to quarantine island, and the eight who were sent back today never got away from there.

Murders at Peking Most Atrocious In History Governor Doubts Sincerity of the Russians. Governor Dole was deeply Impressed by the news of yesterday of the massa cres In Peking. "If our Information In correct," he said, "there has been noth ing like It In the Christian era. At Cawnpore the nttrocltles were some what similar, though the rebellion and massacres In India were local, afTectlnjy directly only one nation. In Peking not only were the murders the most savage to be thought of. but all civilization Is by them directly affected. "What surprises me most of all Is that the Ministers did not get their women and children to a place of safety before the outbreak occurred and es cape was cut off. Foreign represen tatives usually know when trouble Is Impending around them. It may have been that the cry of "wolf In China has been raised so many times in China that they did not attach Importance to the storm thnt had threatened for some weeks prior to the outbreak In May. It Is often necessary and noble for a Mln- ister to remain at his post amid the the outbreak. At the same time there is no bottom to RUBRlan scheniPn. and the powers may have trouble with the bear before pence is again restored." 1 MULATTO MAY COMMAND. France has appointed General Alfred Amedee Dodds. a mulatto and a man of great fighting ability, to command her troops in China, nnd as he is a general of division of many years standing, he will probably rank the commanders of all other bodies of foreign troops, n fact that If appointment be made by senior ity would make him International com mander in chief.
