ANOTHER STEP IN PURSUANCE OF PURPOSE TO MAKE GREATEST
WIRELESS STATION IN THE PACIFIC ARRANGEMENTS WITH
STEAMER TENYO MARII AND CRUISER ST. LOUIS FOR AERIAL
CONVERSATIONS OVER GREATEST POSSIBLE DISTANCE.
The Kahuku long distance station o
the Wireles3 Telegraph Company, now
in process of completion, is to bo a
fifteen kilowat station instead of a ten
It was found that tho added efficien
cy of a fifteen kilowat station was
well worth tbp difference in cost, and
so it will be.
Recent careful comparisons have
been made between coast stations and
tho local station as it will be, with the
gratifying result that it is assured that
tho. Kahuku station will bo superior to
anything anywhere in the Pacific.

HE THINKS WITH JOHNSON THE
DEMOCRATS' CAN CAPTURE THE
Supervisor Frank Harvey, who is a
delegate to the National Democratic
Convention at Denver, was a departing
passonger in tho Alameda this morn
ing. Just before the ship steamed
"Harvey stated that he thought the
Democrats would have a chance at the
, election next November, "as he did not
think that Taft was strong enough to
carry tho Republican party to victory.
"A day or so before the convention
r in Chicago," Mr. Harvey said, "I
thought that Roosevelt would be nom
inated by acclamation, and at that
time did not think that we had any
chance at all this coming November,
But I think now that wo will have a
very good chance if we can have a
good man to lead our party. The man
that I hope will receive the nomination
is Governor Johnson of Minnesota, as
I consider ho is much stronger than
"If the Democratic party want to
get in this year they will have to have
a very strong man, and 1 think that
tho majority feel that Johnson is the
man to lead them to victory, although
Bryan is very strong in certain parts
of the country. Tho campaign this
year is going to bo a hard one in every
part of the country, and I also think
that we aro going to' have a very bit
ter fight hero, but I hope that we will
bo able to win out.
"I am looking forward very much to
my trip to Denver, and will have lots
to ten tho people here on my return, as
being a delegate to a national conven
tion is a great event in any man's life.''

to tho Coliseum, lteaded byhe Cali

The band played stirring selections in
front of tho hotel while tho parade
was forming and when the line finally
moved off the spectators gave a cheer.
M. H. de Young, chairman of tho
California delegation, pinned o'n nearly
every man in the procession one of the
State's gorgeous badges. This badge
is far the handsomest used by any
delegation. It consists of a bar of gilt
bearing tho name "California," and
surmounted by a golden bear. Tho
pendant is a duplicate of tho old fifty
dollar octagonal gold slug, which Is
attached to the bar by a ribbon of the
shade of golden poppy. The delega
tions from the other States followed
in the order in which thy are named.
Delegate Power acted as marshal.
The Calitornians, following their gold
en standard and carrying pennants
bearing the word "California,'' led the
parade. Immediately behind them
came the Hawaiian delegation, with
their banner. Nevada came next with
Senator Nixon heading the delegates.
Utah was there in force. Senators

EASIER TERMS FOR PAYMENT
OF DEBT BY REFUNDING ISSUE.
A deed from tho Honolulu Planta

of San Fraiicisco was filed with tho
Registrar of Conveyances and enriched
the Territory by a'lmost $3,000, 'as
stamps amounting to $29.9S, were need
ed on the document. The deed Is one
to secure a refunding issue of bonds
amounting to $1,UUO,jo0.
Originally the Honolulu plantation
issued bonds in tho sum of $1,250,000
which were duo in lots of $250,000 each
upon February 1, of each year com
mencing with 190S nnd ending with
1012, the Interest being at six per cent.
The first payment of $250,000 was made
on February 1, last, and now the
remaining $l,O00,OQ0 of bonds has
been refunded under a new agreement.
The new issue also carries six per
cent interest but the terms of payment
differ very much. In the first place
only $101,000 per year will bo paid In
the redemption of tho bonds and this
will not commence (Til February 1,
