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.

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. The first

THE
FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. THE DO
B. F. 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.

Much public spirit was shown In the
negotiations by owners of the property

on the representations of the federal
government's desire to use the land,
to sell for less than they had actually
put Into the land .and tho Dowsett
company consented to a substantial re
duction from Us original figures. It
Is thought (that the favorable outcome
of the negotiations will make a good!
