ed the Russian cruisers which sunk several Japanese transports, inflicting the
heaviest blow of the war on Japan, for the lost vessels carried heavy siege
guns for the Port Arthur attack. The guns cannot be replaced and their loss
will mean thousnnd of lives lost and a long delay In taking Port Arthur. Ue

GOVERNOR CARTER TOOK THEM UP WITH THE STATE DEPART
MENT WHILE IN WASHINGTON, WITH THE RESULT THAT
AN INTERNATIONAL TRIBUNAL WILL BE APPOINTED TO
Tlic long outstanding claims of different British subject against the Ter
ritory of Hawaii, for compensation for what they believe to be illegal im
prisonment during revolutionary times, are at last in fair way towards a
settlement. The matter has been used for a game of shuttlecock between
different bodies and parties for some years and Governor Carter took the
matter up with the Department of State during his recent trip to Wash
ington. "I went over the matter with the officials of the State Department," he
said this morning, "and showed them that It was useless to refer it back to
me, as all that I could do was to pass it back to the legislature with the re
sult that the legislature would send it back to me for further reference to the
State Department. After consultation it was decided to include the Hawaii
an claims with a number of other matters which have to be adjudicated upon
between the two governments. There are a number of different claims
which British subjects have against the United States and others which
'American citizens have against Great Britain, and I understand an inter
national tribunal will be appointed to consider all these."

Thomas Taggart, of Indiana, who has been chosen chairman of the Demo
cratic National Committee, is a politician who believes in action rather than
talk. He hao accomplished some political victories in Indiana that were con
sidered nearly impossible,. He is in every sense a self-made man, having com
menced life in Indianapolis as a lunch-counter boy twenty-seven years ago
and risen to the position of proprietor of tho largest hotel In that city through
his own abilities. As X.itinnnl Chairman he can be considered as a serious
fujtor in the campaign.

club, Is in force and there have been
numerous increases of membership.

test. No light is on nnd little struggle
for election to the various conventions
is likely to occur. In the majority of
precincts a single ticket was nominated.
The voting hours are from 2 p. m. to 8
The Democracy does not seem to lie
swayed with the throes of internal
strife. Nobody seems to bo falling over
himself Keeking nomination on the De

island. Fusion Is being discussed by
the various districts and some sort of a
deal mty be patched up with the Home

Whether the return of Governor Car
ter nad anything to do with It or not Is
at present unknown but people whose
business takes them to the Judiciary
building noticed a remarkable change
In the landscae today.
Manuel, the strange Portuguese who
is high priest of the shrine Knnieha
meha I, hua had a hair cut and a shave.
Every day, rain or shine, the curious
man takes up his vigil. About eight
o'clock he takes his stand across the
road from the Judiciary building and
regards the statue of Kamehameha
from a distance but during the after
noon he crosses over nnd stands In the
shade of tho trees on the makal side of
the street. Occasionally he stretches
out his arms and mutters some sort of
ii prayer to his god b'it what he says
nobody knows but himself nnd prob
ably the spirit of Kameliamehn.
Until today Manuel has been wearing
a straggling black beard and his hair
has been unkempt. He looked to be a
man of forty or more but today when
he went on duty his freshly sbawd face
and neatly trimmed hair showed him
to be very much younger. The poor
fellow Is almost as much of a landmark
as the statue he worships.

ATTORNEY GENERAL HAS DISCUSSED WITH THE GOVERNOR HIS
WITHDRAWAL FROAl OFFICE CARTER HAS NO OBJECTION
TO ANDREWS TAKING PART IN POLITICS AND SAYS HE IS
VERY EFFICIENT OFFICER.
Attorney General Andrews' part in politics does not disturb Governor
Carter. According to the governor's view of it the attorney general has just
as much right to interest himself in politics as has any other citizen, and
any protests to him on that score will meet with a chilly reception.
"Attorney General Andrews is a particularly hard-working and efficient
officer of the government," said the governor this morning, "and the sug
gestion that he neglects his work to dabble in politics is absurd. The trou
ble is that those who arc objecting to his course are merely doing so because
he Is not on their side. If he were, you would hear nothing at all about it.
As a matter of fact he has come to me and has asked me to consider the
question of his resigning, not on this account at all, but simply for the reason
that he feels he is not doing justice to himself by retaining the position. He
states that he can do better from a financial standpoint In private practice,
and I have no doubt from my knowledge of his ability that this is so, but I
have asked him not to resign, and I sincerely hope that he will not."
