I AMOY MOST MORAL OF MEMBER OP COMMERCE COMMISSION DOESN'T BELIEVE THVING GREAT DEMONSTRATION AT TENYO'S!! DEPARTURE EIGHTY V MARRIED, JAPANESE WOMEN GET AWAY ONE MILLION GOLD IN TREASURE LOCAL MJ3N MUCH THANKED BY VISITORS. Max Schmidt of the commercial giants who have passed through here from the Pacific coast of the-United States en route to Japan, stood on the deck of the S. S. Tenyo Maru this niornipg and .wavjng his hand toward the shore, said: 'tWhether I come back this way or not I do not know. I may return to the United States by way of the trans- Siberian railway; I may go home by way ot Europe, but the next time I pass through Honolulu I intend 'to take In the wholo island and I intend to learn more of Pearl Harbor than I learned when I made the trip with the official party yesterday. What struck me more forcibly than anything else was the meager information I received in re gard to Pearl Harbor on yesterdays trip. It seemed to mo that there was a purpose in the fact that little or nothing in he way of Information was -given out in regard to Pearl Harbor. "There's another thing of which I wish to learn more, and that is in re gard to the so-called Immorality of Ho nolulu. I learned while here from. a man by the name of Thwing that Ho nolulu was one of,' the most wicked towns on the face nf the earth. Now, to look at it,- one would not suppose such to be the case; but nevertheless Mr. Thwing, I believe he Is sonjekind ot a preacher,' stated -to me in all se riousness, that this., city was, worse than New York or Chicago, in propor tion to Its size, in the matter of . mo rality. Well, we got In here yester day morning and we are sailing at 10 o'clock this morning for the Orient and to save my soul, I have not been able to verify what this Mr. Thwing has said." I consider Honolulu one of the most moral towns I have ever visited and I want to say so; -I want to-.leayo this as a word of friendship In a city where, in the brief stay I made, I re ceived the most cordial reception: And I want to say this: I believe that if some of the professional reformer were eliminated from Honolulu society there would bo loss unpleasantness In a land where all at first, blush seems eo duclve to pleasantneSsl''" vftSStfy t There was a ereat crowd on, hand, at the Hackfeld wharf to see tHo' c0flmer - cial representatives away. Some '6f Honolulu's most representative citizens were on tho wharf and there were many good wishes accompanying the departing ones.

We shall bo glad to advise you without charge. Hawaiian Trust Co,, Limited, SCARED TOPSD EARTHDOM was Sheba, the "Hearst of Hawaii," he who so lavishly entertained, while here, the representative of the Examiner, Al Clark, a cousin to Hearst. He was most prominent figure among a bunch of distinguished local men who wished the commercial party God-speed, There were leis In abundance at the departure of the Tenyo Maru; leis for wives of the members of the commer cial expedition and lets for many oth- era besides. Very significant in the list of de partures was a detachment of Japanese women" in the steerage. Out of 130 Japanese who were leav ing here, there were almost eighty wo men, and most of them, were married women. Why it is at this time that there happen to bo more than halt of number of departing Japanese who are women Is a mystery that is difficult of solution. Those among the Japanese who were leaving and who could talk English had no solution to hand and there seemed to be no explanation. ' It may be noted, as an Interesting item of the Tenyo's cargo, that she took from Honolulu one million dol lars in gold for deposit In Japan, money sent hence by Japanese. There are all kinds of rumors In re- gard to the large and unsuual number ot women, Japanese women, leaving here and' one is that Japanese husbands in thls( city are, anxious jto see their wives safe in their own country for the reason that they anticipate trouble here before Christmas; that they want to know that their wives are out ot range of shot and shell. Such a demonstration as occurred aboard the decks ot the Tenyo Just 'be fore she moved out. J. P. Cooke and others who had made themselves va luable to the visitors during their all too brief stay here were lionized, asked questions by the hundreds and request ed to write, and this and that, why, they were almost fagged out when they at last were allowed to go ashore. C. M. Cooke and John Waterhouse joined tho commercial commission tn Japan here and right warmly were they received nhn.i - with leis and, be it said, scarce could there be two better local reprcsenta- tlves. They will have a good time and they will have a busy time and tho good wishes of all Honolulu people go with them.

Hosiery Hosiery DIVORCE GRANTED SOLOMON, ROBERT BURNS AND A HEARTY ROAST FROM BENCH FOR FAMILY. The Will divorce' sUlt,TWhlch has AX been before Judge Lindsay for the past three days was completed today' the judge granting the cross libel filed by the husband, who was represented by Attorney John Cathcart, but plac ing the children in the custody of the mother. Ho explained his reasons tor this decision as follows: -This Is a case that would need a Solomon with allhls wlsdoth to come to a really Just and proper verdict up on. I am frank to confess I .am very much In doubts Just what my deci sion should be, not my decision upon divorce question, but as to the care and custody of these children. It is said that once upon a time Burns was , walking in the country and ho was entertained over nlgnt ln a house, and the Inmates, of this house were such a fine family, father and motner, brothers and sisters, that the poet was very much impressed, and be fore ho went In tho morning he left a souvenir of the kindness shown him, by writing a poem, expressing the hope that after their Uvea were over they would all tye: united in heaven. He certainly was not thinking of this family, for I don't thinit 1 ever had occasion to try a case where all the members ot the .family were tarred with the same brush. It has been dis graceful, and disgusting to listen to the case, and have the rather and brothers tell of their sister's shame and disgrace. I don't want Mr. Will to think In saying this that I have any great respect for his conductirttq say tho least it has been very ' poor. We have no showing at all of his try ing to keep his wife straight, .of try ing to do the right thing for his wife. It Is .1 pretty poor outfit, .'the whole lot, and as I say, in tho matter of di vorce aiono 1 would not have very much hesitancy in granting. It Id theso poor children I am thinking about. I don't think that Mr. Will has been very lavish in his support or theso children, at the same time from all the evidence I cannot come to tho conclusion that he has failed to" sup port them in a legal sense. Ho evi dently lias done something. I am not able to say that he has not sup ported the children from the evidence. I am convinced that tho wire has been guilty of adultery with tnls Cabral. 1 had some doubts, still .have some doubts as to whether the husband was cognizant of this, whether by his ac tions he has condoned the offense. 1 say this to show that my mind Is not altogether clear on that point, but 1 am going to give him the benefit or tho doubt and I will decree a divorce I Will dismiss the libel ror dlvnrra and grant the cross-libel.

There is anything but harmony in New York, since tho nomination of Hughes Was forced upon the Republican bosses, for. they; realize that tho re-election" ot Hughes means their own anni hilation. Naturally the machine Republicans are not enthusiastic; some will bolt the , state ticket, preferring a democrat to Hughes, and this knifing may affect tho national ticket as well. Exactly the same situation prevails In West Virginia, where the Republican state ticket is sure to bo knifed in royal fashion, and notwithstanding two republican tickets are In the field, each bearing tho same presidential electors, the vote on tho national ticket will be smaller than if harmony prevailed. In Indiana the liquor question Is a the unpopular end ot it. Combined with man Is running on tho Democratic ticket been named for governor.
