(Received at 2 p. 111.)
To Mr. Saito, Honolulu:
Admiral Kamiinura's report runs as follows:
"At dawn on the 14th of August our squadron found off Ulsan
in the southeastern coast of Korea three shins of the Vladivostok
squadron steaming southward. The latter on sight of us attempt-
ed to escape northward, which we obstructed, and iiguting com
menccd at 5:23 a. 111. The enemv's ships all caught fire several 2
times by our shells and apparently suffered heavily, especially the J
Rurik most. Eventually the enemv fled at full speed to the north
4 leaving behind the Rurik which afterward sunk; thereupon our ,
J? whole squadron started to rescue tin- drowning Russians and
picked up about Goo.

CHEFOO, August 15. It is reported that the Russian cruiser Novik has
"There can be no doubt about It that
Hllo is solid for Admiral Heckley
for delegate to Congress." said Judge;
George D. Gear this morning. The
Judge returned from Hilo on Saturday
aftfcr sending over a week there at the
special session of the court. "The Ad
miral bus every one with him anil I nm
sure he could get the Republican nom
ination if he wished it. He will not
however oppose Prince Kuhlo but if
Kulilo should withdraw there can be
no doubt that Heckley Is the man for
the place. He Is far and away the
most popular man In Hlto .nd every
one knows that his name would be n
rallying cry in Honolulu. 1 hardly
think that the Democrats would put a
man to oppose him for not only would
opposition I e useless, but he is Just us
popular with Democrats im he Is wltn
Republicans. While In no sense cri
ticizing any other aspirant to the of
fice I can only say that the admiral
would make an Ideal delegate to Con
gress. He la shrewd and quick-witted,
has a grasp of affairs that Is surprising
and Is a born leader of men. He would
certainly make his presence felt in
Washington. ' Of course I am not in
politics but I think it my duty to speak
in this manner on so Important a sub
ject." It was learned that while the Judge
was In Hllo a "Good Government Club"
was formed and he was honored with
the presidency thereof.
"The feeling of the club was unani
mous that Heckley should go to Wash
ington" said the Judge "when his name
was putlii nomination by Arthur Berg
the nathuslasm was aslonlshlnir. It Is
p-obn'blo that a committee will wait
on Kuhlo to request him to withdraw n
the Admiral's favor and then I nm sure
lie will sweep the convention."
The Ullo Tribune In telling of the
Good Givei nment Club's gathering says
thut 'Beckley was proposed by Gear and
gives the following account of one of
the speeches seconding the nomination:
Chester Antonio Doyle In seconding the
motion remarked that he did not un
derstand how the president of an or

make a motion without leaving the
chair to a more capable person. He

The Parker Ranch case again has the floor. It will be remembered that
some two weeks ago an affidavit of a particularly sultry nature made by
Mrs. -Elizabeth Jane Knight, mother of Annie Thelma K. Parker, the minor
in' the case, was filed in the Circuit Court, but today a printed bunch of affi
davits was filed by Colonel Sam Parker's side of the controversy which are
The affidavits filed take up twenty-two sheets. The first is by J. S. Low
who denies every allegation made by Mrs. Knight and A. V. Carter that
amounts to anything, and accuses Mrs. Knight specifically of conspiring
with Carter and their attorneys to injure her own child.
Colonel Sam Parker is the next'eontributor to this remarkable collection
of affidavits. He swears that Carter, as a guardian, is a mere interloper,
and makes the further charge that Mrs. Knight when twenty-one years of
age married his son, then only eighteen years of age, with the object of get
ting control of his property as he was afflicted with inflammatory rheuma
tism and serious heart trouble from which he died before coming of age. He
also makes oath to his belief that Mrs. Knight is of an avaricious nature
and is now living largely off the allowance made to the minor. Colonel Par
kes makes a serious charge against some well known attorneys,
accusing them of gross violation of their professional duties which
he says he believes renders them unfit to practice in the courts of Hawaii.

DENY ANNEXATION OF BIRD ISLAND.
LONDON, August 15. At the prorogation of Parliament today, the annex

A committee from the Planters' Association consisting of Messrs. Tenncy,
Giffard, Cooke and Clive Davies waited on Governor Carter today to discuss
with him the political situation in Hilo. It appears that the plantation man
agers on Hawaii have got together and have urged on the Planters' Asso
ciation the necessity of securing good nominees for the approaching elec
tions. The object of the visit from the committee to the governor was to
consult with him as the Planters are not in politics and do not wish to take
any stand which might be so construed. The governor assured his callers
that they would receive nothing but the best wishes of the administration in
any fight made for honest and capable government.

COUNSEL FOR BENSON, SAUTH & COMPANY AND THE ATTOR
NEY GENERAL AGREE TO SUBMIT THE CORPORATIONS
EXHIBIT TEST CASE TO THE SUPREME COURT ON AN AGREED
STATEMENT OF FACTS.
The prospect of long and costly litigation between the government and
different business firms, over the decision of the administration to enforce
the provisions of the act of the legislature respecting domestic corporations
has been dispelled by the joint action of the Merchants' Association and the
Attorney General. The act decrees that all domestic corporations shall file
each year a full and complete statement of their affairs with the TerritonaV
Treasurer, but this law has been honored more in the breach than in the ob
servance, as the records show, and the administration determined to test its
effectiveness by proceeding against several firms.
Such action, while in the line of conserving the Territory's interest could
only result in friction which would profit few beside the legal gentlemen
concerned, and the Merchants' Association therefore took the matter up.
That the law is on the statute book and it is the plain duty of the govern
ment's law department to enforce it was recognized by the Association and
a conference was therefore sought with the law officers.
On Saturday A. Lewis, Jr., of the law firm of Smith & Lewis, represent
ing the Merchants' Association, called on the Attorney General and after a
consultation it was agreed to make the case of Benson, Smith & Co. a test
and to take it before the Supreme Court on an agreed statement of fact3.
The plaint of the Territory's officers Is that Benson, Smith & Company have
failed to file and present a full and true exhibit of the state of their affairs
with the Territorial Treasurer for the year ending December 31, 1903. and
there are many other domestic concerns against which the same complaint
Is made. The firms as a general thing deny the right of the Territory to
demand such a statement, and the Supreme Court will therefore decide.
In order to avoid further friction of the same sort It has been further ar
ranged between the Merchants' Association and the Attorney General's de
partment that a committee shall be appointed to meet the Treasurer and
decide upon the proper form of corporation exhibits to be filed for the pres

Governor Carter was oflleially notified
today, by High Sheriff Brown that the
appropriation made fo rthe maintenance
of prisoners would prove Insufficient.
This notice Is In aceordancc with the
governor's Instructions to bends of de
partments to the effect that If appro
priations are to be exceeded the execu
tive must he notified beforehand and
the mntter made public, In this par
ticular matter tin fact that the amount
allowed Is to be exceeded Is apt to mis
lead as the Territory takes charge of
Federal prisoners and their keep Is af
terwards paid for by the national gov
ernment. The amount so returned Is
not, however credited to the mainte
nance of prisoner. but goes Into the
general funds of the. Territory.
