A' disturbing rumor nas been per meating tho Capitol today and threat ening the "former cordial relations' existing between the retiring governor and his staff. It Is to tho effect that Carter some time ago advised Frear that the best thing for him to do on taking office was to "make a clean -sweep" of all tho heads of departments. Tho heads are said to have been so "sore" at this report that they pro posed giving up the dinner to Carter which they had planned, but the din' ner had to be given up on account of his indisposition anyhow. Today they presented him with" a loving cup, Ignoring tho rumor. (Associated Press Cable to The Star.) SAN FRANCISCO August 13.

Kim Bong Chuen is the name ol the coiner. He is a Korean, and was recently captured on Hawaii througn tho efforts of United States Marshal Hendry. After being brought to Ho nolulu he came through with his con nection with the making of tho large quantity of spurious ten-dollar gold i Dleces which have been causing: so much trouble on the Big Island, and confessed the whole game. Dlstrhit Mtorney Breckons expressed incredul ity regarding his ability to make the money he claimed to havo done, ana forthwith tho Korean's professional pride was spurred, and ho offered to demonstrate his skill if given tho op. portunity. District Attorney Breckons there upon made arrangements for him to prove himself, and right well has he done It. Tho resutl of about a week's With Captain J, W.

Kim Bong Chuen was first allowed to use materials and space in Wiclv man's jewelry store, and his remark able skill with tools was a great sur prise to all who saw him. Afar, wards he was fitted out with a bench in a room off tho Marshal's ofllce, where under guard he has daily pro secuted his work until tho present time. The dies which the Korean has made are of copper or bronze, which he has some sooret method of hardening. They are certainly very nearly perfect, and tho fact that the money he turned out before he was captured was lacking only In the matter of ring and weight. showed to what perfection he had attained. With a more perfect imml- tation of metal his coins would have been almost Impossible to detect.

AND UNSUITABLE ATTITUDE One ot tho last acts of the retiring governor was to sign a ringing letter to the Department of Commerce and La bor on the subject of coastwise ship ping restrictions. In his letter Car ter brings out a lot of now facts and arguments and sets them forth In his best and most forcible stylo. The letter Is as follows: August 12, 1907. "E. T. Chamberlain, Esq., Commission er of Navigation, Department ot Commerce and Labor, Washington, D. C. "Dear Sir: Permit me to acknowledge receipt of your of Juno 18th, with its enclosure of J. D. Spreckels & Bros. Company's letter, from San Francisco, under date ot June 11th. "I cannot hope to compete with paid experts of corporations, who. as you are aware, have heretofore played so Important a part in shaping our na tional legislation. It Is but natural that they should fall to recognize the. cd on Midway Island to keep them from starving, after they had generous ly divided their stores and food supplies with the large number who wero land ed there from the strannel 'Mongolia?' I need not mention the fact that it has already been recognized that Guam and Samoa should be exempted from the application of this law, it being Im practical of npplicatidn there. "Now, the public of Honolulu and this Territory, prior to annexation, en- Joyed tho passenger service ot every steamer that stopped here. Thus com merce was enabled to grow because of the personal contact between buyer and seller, so essential to credit and trade. The application of the coast wise law to these Islands, two thousand miles from tho mainland, has in no way built up or fostered American shipping.

"An administrative officer has often to meet perplexing questions concern ing his duty. No one disputes that ho is expected to enforce the laws, but every law Is an abridgment of a pri vate right as to somo and tho granting of privileges aB to others. Thus its Justice and permanency depends upon its usefulness to tho majority. Every rule has its exceptions, and a law In our country which is obnoxious to the people will not stand for any length ot time, nor will they long tolerate Its en forcement An administrative officer often will enforce an obnoxious law in order to secure its early repeal. But we In Hawaii' realize that tho coast wise law has much of merit in It, and, do not believe that your department should enforce it in such a manner as to make it obnoxious, with a view to securing its repeal, for tho lawmaking body, as I understand it, gave to the Secrotary of Commerce and Labor the exclusive power and privilege ot re. mlttlng such fines for violation ot this Act as In his Judgment he might think wise. "To show how impossible It is to strictly enforce a law of this nature, which does not tako cognizance or varying conditions, I need only ask it your department believes that, in the protection of Spreckels Brothers ship ping Interests, It was wrong for you to consent to the British ship Restorer carrying supplies to the marines locat- This, lit conjunction with other losses, has deprived the people of Hawaii within the last year ot over one-third of the already restricted accommoda tions which they have been forced to accept since annexation. "I have It on so high an authority as that of Mr. Schewerln, General Man ager of the Pacific Mail Steamship Co. that the trade of Hawaii was imma terial to his company. He stated in an interview lately In San Francisco that it he had to move a small coal pile from land of the Naval Reserve or pay ground rent for their coal storage (which is borne by all other steamship companies here) he would sooner cut out Honolulu from his service entire Jr. , "For a long time every effort has been made by tho peoplo of Hawaii to force the Pacific Mall Company to re cognize the local trade and permit a small portion of each steamer to be set aside definitely for the Honolulu trade, so that thoso who might be here, for business or other reasons, could be sure of accommodations, and not be subject to tho inconvenience, as has repeatedly been the case, of (Continued on Page Four.)
