Carolines were devastated by tho
storm. All suffered alike. With one
exception every buttering owned by the
American Board of Foreign Missions
was levelled to the ground by the
storm. Every native house and hut In
that part of the Islands was blown
dpwn and most of tne trees were level

supplies of the natives were ruined.
Several years will elapse before the
natives can recover from the losses
sustained through the storm. About

News by the San Francisco news-
papers yesterday contains Information
whlch has bearing on the case. This
Information Is to tho effect that tho
American-Hawaiian lino had contract

construction of two new S50 foot steam

This fact taken In connection with
tho dispatch from New York shows
that the company is evidently going
to eliminate the long route around

long trip, will divide the lleet and oper-

SECRETARY McCLELLAN NOT
VERY HOPEFUL ABOUT GETTING
G. B. McClellan, secretary to Dele
gate to Gcmgress Kalanlannole, was
among the passengers on the Manchu
ria yesterday,, returning from Wash
ington. He had discussions with a
large number of the congressmen au.l
c.iators, ond gave them mucn Infor
mation about Island affairs. Among
tho matters discussed were the im
provement of Pearl Harbor and the
possibility of some reimbursement of
Hawaii Cor her large customs pay
"The members of the naval commit
tee and others appeared to be very
non-committal," said McClellan, "In
discussing Pearl Harbor improvements,
when the matter of Immediate appro
priations was talked. This was notice
able yesterday during the trip to Pearl
Harbor. It Is very good for us to have
had Chairman Foss of this committee
here, but it would bo a good thing It
wo could have also some of tho Naval
Board. The fact that we have not had
any of them makes It dllllcult to gft an
appropriation. The estimates come
from the Naval Board, and the work
of the committee Is usually that of eli
mination of Items rather than putting
new ones In, so that It Is dlfllcult to
start an appropriation unless tho Na
val Board acts.
"As to the reapproprlatlon of some of
tho customs duties for Hawaii, it ap
pears to be the opinion of sucii lead
ers as Payne, i chairman of the House
Ways and Means Committee, that we
can do better by asking for direct ap
propriations, rather than for such a re
appropriation. The Idea of returning

and tho horso fell on McVeigh. Tho
latter's left leg was caught under the
