SOME TALK OF USING A PORTION OF THE SAN FRANCISCO RE
LIEF FUND TO ASSIST THE BAND IN GETTING HOME THERE
IS $$,000 ON HAND MATTER, IS IN THE HANDS OF THE CONTRA
There Is a possibility that the band
will bo relieved with money that was
given for tho relief of Stricken ' San
Francisco nnd never used. There Is
In the hands of the Treasurer of tho
relief committee the sum of $S,000 and
a portion of this may be used for the
relief of the band.
There was much discussion over tho
condition ot the band as reported by
Captain Berger In his communication
to the Board of Supervisors In town
this morning and many expressed tho
opinion that tho money should bo sent
to them for their return If they aro
unable to return otherwise.
It was suggested that tho fund In tho
hands of tho San Francisco Relief Com
mittee bo used. Treasurer L. Tonny
Peck was called upon and he stated that
there was still $8000 on hand.
"Wo havo been awaiting tho return
of Chairman C. M. Cooke before taking
any action towards tho disposal of tho
fund and as he returned yesterday the
committee will now moot at tho call of
tho Governor, probably Within a week
or SO. At that time it will bo decided
just where the balance of $S00O will go.

It to the General Relief -Committee In
Ran Francisco nnd shall do so unless
those Instructions are altered.
MRS. RIGGS' SUIT AGAINST HER
MOTHER INCLUDES BROTHERS
AND SISTERS AS DEFENDANTS.
Judgo Do Bolt yesterday afternoon
signed a temporary injunction which
ties up all of the Afong fortune that Is
In the possession of Mrs. Julia Afong,
until such time as the court shall de
cide who Is entitled to the money. The
Injunction was signed In the case of
Mrs. Carrie D. Rlggs vs. Julia Afong, a
proceeding to have the trust deed con
strued. The petition for an injunction, be
sides setting forth the fact that a fund
of about $200,000 has accumulated from
tho trust estate, declares that Mrs.
Afong was about to withhold It from
all other children excepting Albert F.
Afong, who, It Is declared, was to bo
specially favored. Mrs. Rlggs' petition
saya that all the children aro equally
entitled to tho money In question, and
the court Is asked to order that It bo
distributed among them.
Mrs. Julia Afong and all of her chil
dren aro made defendants, tho reason
for making the sons and daughters de
fendants being set forth, that they
havo refused to Join wltV Mrs. Rlggs In
bringing tho suit, and aro Interested
in the funds concerned.
Tho action Is based on a trust deed
by Chung Afong to W. F. Allen, since,
whose decease S., M. Damon has been
trustee. Tho deed conveyed 2,000 shares
of stock In the Pepeekeo plantation, In
trust, for Mrs. Afong and her chil
dren, stating the manner In which tho
property should bo held and used In
ho following terms:
Third. After the decease of the said
Chung Afong, as well as when he shall
bo absent from the Hawaiian Islands,
and during his said absenco or bank
ruptcy or Insolvency or failure suitably
to maintain, support or provldo for tho
said Julia Afong or any of her children
by him begoten, the trusteo shall pay
the Income of tho trust funds to said
Julia Afong If living for the support of
herself and her said children, and if
sho bo not then living, tho trustee shall
pay tho said Income In equal shares to
all of tho children of tho said Julia
Afong begotten by tho said Chung
Afong and to tho lawful issue of any
deceased child such issue taking by
right of representation tho sharo which
the parent If living would havo taken
until tho youngest surviving child of
Julia Afong begotten by Chung Afong
shall reach the ago of twenty-one years
and then to pay, transfer and deliver
tho trust funds and all, If any, tho un
applied income thereof In equal shares
to tho said children and lawful Issue of
any deceased child such Issuo taking by
right of representation tho sharo which
tho parent if living would havo taken.
And if there shall bo but one such child
and no such Issuo or only ono child of
such Issuo then living then tho whole

"If the donors of the fund would llko
to see It used for tho relief of tho band
they would havo to signify a willing
ness to that effect. In other words
they would have to recall their previous
Instructions and Issue new ones to us
which wo will follow."
When George W .Smith, chairman
of the Board of Supervisors, was told
of tho proposal of tho scheme he
thought thnt it would be a very good
one to follow. The county has no
funds on hand which can be Used and
the only way tho boys could get back If
Cohen was broke would bo to raise
the money by public subscription
which has already been undertaken.
James F. Morgan, the relief agent,
was very decided In his views. . "That
money should go to help tho needy In
San Francisco," said ho, "and it should
not be diverted for any other purpose.
If the people want tho band back badly
let them raise a different fund."
Probably before tho matter progress
es much further Joe Cohen will be com
municated with and his side of the
story learned. There Is a possibility
that the story told by tho band boys Is
greatly exaggerated and that Cohen
will bp on hand "with tho goods" when
he is ready to return.
WELL KNOWN MASTER REPORT
ED TO BE SLATED TO SUCCEED
CAPT. PORTER OF MONGOLIA.
According to news brought by tho S.
S. Alameda yesterday Captain Curtis,
who was formerly In command of tho
schooner W. II. Marston and later in
th0 Pacific Mail service, Is to be plac
ed In command of the Pacific Mall S. S.
Mongolia succeeding Captain Porter.
Curtlg will, therefore, It Is stated, bring
the Mongolia out next trip.
Curtis Is well known In Honolulu
where he has many friends. He was
master of the Marston for a number of
years. Over three yeave ago he left
that vessel to accept the command of
the Pacific Mall S. S. Barracouta. He
had charge of that vessel when she
was captured by the Japanese during
tno recent war. The vessel was trying
to run tht Vladivostok blockade. Lat
er Curtis was given command of an
other Pacific Mall vessel. His rise from
the command of a windjammer to that
of one of tho biggest vessels of tho Am
erican merchant marine within a period
of less than four years, is exceptional.
