FOR SAN FRANCISCO.
For probably the finest time in the
history of tho Pacific Mall S. S. Com

large shipment of sugar from this port
to tho mainland. The S. S. Korea which
arrived this morning from Yokohama
Is to 116 in this port until Wednesday
at noon, taking on a special shipment
of 3000 'tons of Migar. Tho vessel

however, between this place and 'San

shipment of sugar by tho Korea Is that
there Is a shortago of bottoms to carry
sugar from these islands. Tho oppor
tunity of sending somo by the Korea
presented Itself so tho necessary ar
rangements wero made.

of freight at this port -brought from the

SAYS SHE WILL NOT GO UNDER
ANY CONDITIONS THINKS SHE
'HAS BEEN MISREPRESENTED.
Madame Alapai will not accompany
the Hawaiian Baud.
She made this positive announcement
at half-past one this afternoon.
The announcement was not the result
of a failure of negotiations as to
terms, she says, but tho result of a
deliberate conclusion reached that she
would not go under the circumstances
on any conditions as to salary or other
"There might have been a different
conclusion on Saturday," said Madame
Alapai this afternoon, "though I have
felt nil tho time that Mr .Cohen was
bringing my affairs beforo the public
more than was necessary, or than he
had any right to. The matter was a
business proposal between myself and
my husband on one side and Mr. Cohen
on tho other. 'Because I did not accept
tho terms ho offered, and made a coun
ter offer, he immediately took the mat
ter before tho public, seeking to put
me and my husband in a disadvantage
ous light, seeking to represent that we
were grasping and unreasonable. Still,
up to .Saturday I should not havo al
lowed that to interfere with tho course
of negotiations, and If what I consid
ered a suitable offer had been made, I
fchould havo accepted it. But Mr. Co
hen kept appearing in interviews to
seek to lead tho public to bellevo that
I was .unreasonable In tho position I
took, and I have therefore decided that
I will not go W(th the band under any
circumstances. I feel that no consid
eration has been shown for my feel
ings, and vory little for mo as a sing
er. Theroforo neither I nor my hus
band will go. This is final,"

'Another complaint, against Deputy
Sheriff George K. Kekau'oha has been
filed with Sheriff Brown. Kekauoha is
in effect, charged with Ignorance. Tho
allegation as made to the Sheriff are:
liast Friday Kulhada who with some
natives has leased tho fishing rights at
Kahana for $310 yearly rental, wero
told that Manu and seven other natives
Invaded their fishing rights and cap
tured about 8000 abules. Deputy Sheriff
Kekauoha was hunted up and asked to
Issue a warrant for tho arrest of the
eight natives on charges of violating
tho fishing rights of Kulhara and his
partners. But Kekauoha smiled and
said no. It was boyond his Jurisdic
tion. He said that tho limit was too
high for him. "If the yearly rental for
tho fishery rights ling beon $300 then he
could tako cognlzanco of the matter
and Issue the desired warrants, but as
It was $310 a year, that sum mado it $10
over tho limit of his authority and he
could do nothing. But he was very
sorry for the people who claimed that
their fishing rights hnd been Invaded.
A ropresentatlvo of the lossee camo

matter. They had a communication

Sheriff had gotten confused In tho mat

Tho resolution does not nnnnnr in

that tho Republican party wants good

"It doesn't say so," was the reply ot
tho man who asked tho question.
"But that is what Hustaco, who of
fered the resolution said," was answer
ed. "Ho made it commit tho partr
to accept the 'business community'
selections and this would be an Inter
ference with tho rights of tho con
vention. Moreover It was a "haolo
proposition. It was regarded by tho
llawallans as simply a move for a
'hnole' ticket, and tho county commit
tee didn't approve such a, proposition."
"What It really meant," said Col.
Zeigler of tho committee, "was that
the party wanted tho aid ot business
men to the extent of allowing their em
ployes to run, as, In tho enso of W. W.
Harris, Lowers and Cooko uldcd us by
allowing him to run, and wo thereby
got a good man in the legislature."
Other members of tho commltteo say
tho resolution was "raw." In any
event It was voted down, though tho
most careful reading of it seems to
show only a wish for help in 'getting
good candidates. Acting on their
suspicion that there was a joker In it,
tho county committee of Oahu uppoars
to havo broken a world's record by a
formal rejection of a proposition ot
asking help to get good candidates.

laugh Is on the committee.

tion on Saturday evening tho matter
