WHAT IS A COUGH?
A spasdomlc effort to expel the rau
cus from the bronchial tubes. A cold
causes a more abundant secretion of
mucus, and when the lungs and bron
chlal tubes are Inflamed, they are ox
tremely sensitive to the Irritation. Un
less care Is taken, the cold may result
in pneumonia, which Is swift and dead
ly. If the cold Is a lingering one, the
more leisurely but equally fatal con
sumption may set In. Do not neglect

"The encouragement of genuine set

land commissioner. this morning
"While I think it well for Hawaii to re
tain control of her own lands and to
carry out to a large extent her tawn
land laws, I believe that the American
precedent should be followed. The
stability and prosperity o( the United

caused by Its policy of encouraging the.--
settlers who take land and make their-

OIL STEAMER BATTERED
TRIP FROM SAN FRANCISCO-;MATES SWEPT ALONG
DECK AND INJURED VESSEL BOARDED REPEATED
LY BY BIG WAVES MUCH DAMAGE DONE.
The S. S. Rosecrans was badly dam
aged by a succession of gales on her
trip to this port rrom San Francisco.
She encountered the rough weather a
week ago last Wednesday and Thurs
day. The wind freshened up Wednes
day from the southeast and by the af-
ternoon there was n. moderate gale
blowing. There was the same westerly
swell running that every Incoming ship
has reported, and the combination made
an ugly dangerous cross sea. The wind
shifted during the night to the south
west from where It blew a full gale.
The Rosecrans was loaded too deep
with fuel oil for this port. She was
nearly three feet lower than her ordin
ary draft. The seas 'boarded her re
peatedly. The worst damage was done
during the early part of Thursday
The port lighthouse was stove In and
the starboard lighthouse cap was bat
tered down by the heavy seas. The
chock blocks of the forward port life
boat were broken and the boat through
doubled lashed was picked up bodily
and thrown from the upper deck down
on the main deck. Every companion
ladder was carried away. The hand
steering gear was smashed hopelessly.

got adrift. Mate P. C. Dellegar went

onto the main deck, Olson saw the sea

along the deck. The gale lasted for 3j
hours. No damage was done to the
hull of the vessel and none of the hat'
ches were smashed In. Both sails were
lost. The Rosecrans arrived off the
port last night and came In the harbor
this morning. She will sail probably to
morrow foe Hllo.

SERIES OF SUGGESTIVE COINCIDENCES WHICH IN

EDITOR STAItt Three peculiar
events have been reported In I believe

The first was a peculiar record made
by the tide guage In this harbor, show

disturbance across the ocean, ns has

violent earthquakes In Japan, also once
from the Krakatao eruption in the
Straits of Sunda In 1833.

THE OLD MAN RKTURHS FROM
TAHITI THIS MORNING TO RE
SIDE IN HONOLULU ONCE MORE.
John K. Sumner of litigation fame
arrived this morning on the S. S. Aia-
meda. With him came a very formld-'
able number of relations, retainers, etc.
As' Sumner made his way through the
crowds that lined the Hackfeld wharf
his course resembled the wake of a
battleship. His numerous retinue fol
lowed close behind him, while behind
this big party of arrivals came a crowd
of curious people who were anxious to
see the specimens of Tahltlan beauty
that the old man had brought home
with him. '
But Sumner did not waste time talk
ing to the curious, or money, with the
hackdrlvers. He escorteu nis cnarges
over to King street where all hands
took the electric car to Sumner's Kallhl
There were nine In the party, four
grown people, one pretty little miss of
about 15 years, and the rest small chil
dren. Sumner seemed to be greatly at
tached to the little miss and he walked
with her to the car.
'Yes," he said to an Inquirer, "I have
come back. I think I will live hero
now. I did not get settled In Tahiti.
No I did not go Into tho cattle busi
ness down there. I did not care to do
so. I wanted to come back to Hono
lulu. These people with mo7 Oh, they
ire my cousins and my relatives. Yes
they are going to live here too with me.
I can't tell Just yet what I will do In
Honolulu or whether I will go Into any
business or not."
Among those who returned from Ta
hiti .with Sumner were Mr. and Mrs.
Paul Keller, Hawallans, who formerly
lived In Honolulu. They havo been In
Tahiti for some years. Four of their
grandchildren returned with them.

CALLS ATTENTION TO A
Neither of the two "tidal inundn-
tlons reported were violent enough to
do great damage, although long con
tinued, thus proving that they were
undulations transmitted from seismic
disturbances thousands of miles away.
The direction of these disturbances
was from the north. The (source ot
them was therefore not In Japan. Also
had It been there, the cable would,
doubtless have reported It.
I have been told, orally, that the
magnetic station near Barber's Point
also recorded seismic disturbances at
the same time.
I venture the surmise that on or Just
before the 29th, a violent earthquake,
and probably a volcanic eruption, took
place In the well known volcanic region
of the Aleutian Islands, which Is re
mote from telegraphic connection.
