Jones in The Star last night, In which ho advocated efforts to get more American steamers rather than to amend shipping laws so that foreign steamers might do busi ness here, aroused a lot of discussion. Members Of the Promotion Committee took the matter up and dscussled pre paring an answer, in defense of its pe tition for amendment of the shipping laws. "We appreciate fully the force of Mr. Jones' remarks," said J. A. Mc Candless of the committee, "but it is a matter of self-preservation with Ha waii, and wo have a right to protect ourselves. Tho members of the Pro motion Commltte are as patriotic as anyone and fully agree, with Mr. Jones' wish for American vessels, but the fact remains that we cannot get them, and we must have steamers. It seems therefore to the committee that the stand already taken is the property one, and we are glad that Secretary Straus so thoroughly approved it." The Promotion committee has sent out about 600 copies of Secretary Straus' speech of last Thursday after noon. A copy has been sent to each member of Congress and to a large number of leading editors all over the country. The speech is highly com plimentary to Hawaii as a tourist re sort, besides holding out very grea promise for future business develop ment, and it is regarded as very fine advertising for the Islands. EDITOR STAR: No doubt Mr. P. C. Jones wishes to present all of "The Other Side." Such a patriotic gentle man would hardly leave out such a telling little detail as the Oceanic sub sidy by the New Zealand government. The English government do not sub sidize any more than the Spreckels family run steamship lines for patrio tism. Comparing services, accommo dations and jharges on the Pacific and Atlantic highways, one is charged about four times as much as the At lantic voyager and has not the least approach to the some degree of com fort. The condition of the American mercantile navy Is due to nothing less than our foolish laws which while In tended to foster has only destroyed a navy that might have been very dif ferent from what it is now. The ac tion taken by the Promotion Commit tee is one that should recommend it self to everyone who has the Interest of these Islands nt heart and was only taken on the withdrawing of the Oceanic steamers. Sincerely yours, SUBSCRIBER. TOO HOT FOR News was received yesterday by S F.

WARNING TO HILO GURREV TELLS HILOITES THEIR CITY IS SURE TO BURN IF THEY DON'T ACT. HILO, August 8. Probability of a serious conflagration stares Hllo In the face, In the opinion of A. II. Gurrey, secretary of the Board of Fire Under writers of the Territory of Hawaii. Gurrey points out the weak spots anu the needs, at the same time suggest ing remedies. Dangers from poor con struction of buildings, from electric wires, from a lack of .building laws and inspection, all point,, in Gurrey's opinion, to the inevitable, a lire that will sweep along Front street and leave every building in ashes. Tho Board of Trade has appointed a committee to draft an ordinance to provide building regulations and for the appointment of a fire marshal. The need of both Is apparent from Gurreys letter to the Board, which contains the following: "Your city front will surely burn some day if there Is anything in ex perience to be relied on. I think 1 can say with perfect truth that there Is no frame town on the coast from British Columbia to the Mexican lino and as far east as Colorado that exist ed 20 years ago but what has been des troyed by conflagration, and why not Hllo? and when it comes, how far will It burn? Where have you nnx lire stops you can rely on? Jtou have only your narrow streets. The reliability of your one lire engine under heavy streets Is somewhat questionable. Vou have good hose and a good supply your water pressure is good I am not sufficiently informed as to the ade quacy of your water supply under heavy drain to speak of It. "I note too that you are not im proving your fire hazard, In the last year or so there has been constructed right In your business quarter, in the center of the block, some wooden build ings that add greatly to the hazard and still another large frame building was under construction while I was In Hllo. "I hope no one will be aggrieved at this frank statement of conditions, I have stated them as I saw them look' ing at them from the view of an insur ance man. Possibly we Insurance men take more serious views of such mat ters than a layman would but we have had such woeful experience in this class of business that it Is impressed deeply on our minds; but you will see that any reduction of Insurance rates until conditions improve, is out of the question." Prompt attention given to all plan tation brders as well as courteous treatment to local orders Is the secret of K. Yamamoto's immense rai'e. Tel, Main 399. Hotel St. near Nuuanu.

DAVIS AND IS HELD TO AWAIT ACTION OF THE GRAND JURY RELEASED ON BAIL IN THE SUM OF ONE THOUSAND DOLLAltS. H. M. Ayres, editor and owner ot the Referee, who was arrested about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon by United States Deputy Marshal Winters on a charge of sending obscene literature through the mails, was given a hearlug this morning before United States Com missioner George A. Davis, who bound him over to answer before the United States District Court on October 14th. Bail was again fixed at $1,000. The warrant upon which tho editor of tho Referee was arrested was sworn out yesterday afternoon by U. S. Postofllce Inspector Frame J. Hare, on Information furnished by William L. Whitney, Judge of the local district court. The article in question which re sulted In the action of tho Postofllce authorities appeared in Ayres' paper on June 22nd, and Is generally known as the "Palolo story," being an ac count of several teachers who are said to have been surprised while in bath ing by a small boy. Tho manner in which tho story was handled in the Referee was ruled to be obscene and lewd by tho Postmaster General's De partment to which tho matter was re ferred.

ANSWE through the mails, and Postmaster J. G. Pratt and Inspector Hare, also tes tified to the use of the mans by the publication. There was evidence of some sym pathy for Ayres from the fact that since his trouble with Sam Johnson some weeks ago over an Item in his paper, which resulted in Johnson's be ing haled Into police court on charge ot assault and battery, his publication has been much freer from objection able features than previously, and Was generally conceded to be unobjectlon able. The arrest therefore canle some what as a surprise, as it was generally thought that the feeling against Ayres had subsided and nothing further would be done: Judge Whitney, the complaining wit ness, is the judge before whom Sam Johnson was tried for assaulting Ayres and who promptly discharged the de fendant. , Through the courtesy of Deputy Mar shal Winter, Ayres was permitted to send from the Jail last evening for proofs of his paper, and by means of messengers, he was enabled to get the Referee out this morning as usual.
