ENFORCING SHANGHAI, August 33. The foreign consuls conferred today regarding the enforcement of the neutrality of Chinese ports, growing out of the threat of the Japanese to attack the Russian cruiser Askold in the harbor. The matter was referred to their various governments for further orders. Admiral Sterling, the commander of the American Asiatic fleet, says that the movements of the United States torpedo-boat destroyer Chauncey in taking up a position near the Askold are not in connection with the arrival of the Japanese destroyer which took up a position close to the Russian ves sel in this port.

MAKIKI ill A FAILURE WILL HAVE TO BE ABANDONED, AS THE STONE HAS NOT PROVED SATISFACTORY GOVERNOR CARTER FINDS MUCH TO CRITICIZE IN THE GOVERNMENT LAUNDRY BUT MUCH TO PRAISE IN OTHER GOVERNMENT WORKS. The Alakiki quarry has turned out a failure and sooner or later will have to be abandoned. In the recent tour of inspection made by Governor Carter .the quarry was one of the few matters tnat came in for criticism. "The locating of the quarry was nobody's fault," said the governor. "There was every indication that there would be good stone there but as it has turned out the stone is not there. We only get about two per cent of rock out of it. The machinery will have to be moved to some other location in order for us to get value for its work." The governor's trip was made in company with Superintendent of Public Works Holloway and Capt. Sar.i Johnson and was most satisfactory to him. "I was not only surprised at the amount of work that has been done dur ing my absence, but I was delighted," he said. "Every section of work that the department has undertaken has been characterized with a display of en ergy and economy that does the greatest credit to those in charge.

DILLINGHAM COMPANY, A PEARL HARBOR LANDS AGREE Lieutenant 'Slattery, representing the War Deportment, has reached an un derstanding with the Dowsett Com pany nnd the holders of 17 lots at Pearl lharbor .regarding the terms on which the property will be sold to the federal government for forts. The land cov ered by the agreements extends for a distance of about two miles along the Ewa side of the entrance to Pearl har bor, the outer end being practically round the bend In the open sea. The negotiations were conducted by Lieutenant Slattery with the B. F. Dillingham company, which has had three other land deals with the federal government and has settled them all without condemnation suits. The fig ures at first named by the property owners did not meet with Slattery's views, but after discussion reductions were made and as matters now stand the government can take the property nt an agreed figure, without any suit to condemn.
