Four of the sevon twelve-Inch inor- tars o the fort behind Diamond Head, the extinct crater o Leahl, are ready to fire and their three sisters will be in condition to belch blanks or brim- stone in a few days, but there is no ammunition ready for the test. This is expected before spring and when the wherewithal for a test of the Leahl battery arrives thero will likely he some detonating, some rattling ot near- by windows and some vibration of the red crust of that section of the City and County. Tho-flrst test will be with "blanks," that is the mortars will be tried out with the exnloslve and without the pro- jectlles. All the guns were tested ue- fore they were sent here, as all guns always are tested before they ace sent from the "shop," but the mountings and emplacements must be tested and there 'can be no test other than firing. Later, though this is not certain, -there may be target practice, either with specially constructed and simple raft targets or with some hulk. The old Kaimiloa, the only and ori ginal Hawaiian man-of-war, in fact tho finHro Hawaiian Navy at one time, mlght be used as a target If her pres- ent owners would surrender her as an n i, .

The tunnel through the crater side, from near the fort Into the basin, is progressing, but before this is finished there will be other excavations start- cd. The plan is to "peek the peak" on the makal side, on the side toward the sea, that is, to cut out peeping places, observatories which cannot be observed from the sea, but from which the ocean can be observed. This will be one ot tne incidents of the "lire control," one of the stations from which can lie directed the aim of the big mortars now slumbering in the rear of the ex- unci voicano, There will be other peekaboo places f from which may be observed the wa- ter on all sides upon which tne ocean borders, and a'l will be dug out in such a way tnat they may not be spotted by the watchers with glasses aboard ships. The watch-holes will be connected with the fort by telephone and they will be mysteries to people here, even. Incidentally, curious ones are not permitted to pry about the crater pre- mises where the army has reservation, and even those who trespass will have difficulty, when the watch holes are complete.

Tho facts of these matters have repeatedly been gone into by the papers, so that there was nothing rally new until just before noon when Ateherley stated that Wallach was leleased from Jal) at the instance ot Secretary Garfield when that official was here last sum mer. "We sent a memorial to Secretary Garfield," said tho witness, "telling about Wallach and giving him the particulars of his case. Mr. Garfield took tho matter up and communicated with the Government, with the result that 'the specialist was immediately released from prison.

In answer to County Attorney Cath cart, Dr. Ateherley stated that he ilrst suspected that designs were had upon his remedy when Dr. Wayson stuted in tho Board of Health meetings that the Nastlno treatmotii was a- fail ure. Sure enough tho next move ot tho Board was after Wallach's euro. They obtained from Wallach exactly what Wallach had communicated to the witness, except for the one seenst which had just been fixed up for use at Kallhi, was stolon. Ho was sure that Dr. Wayson had either taken it or employed others to carry it away. Pressed as to why he felt so suro of this Ateherley said ho based his state ment upon Dr. Wayson'a attitude prior to tho loss of tho medicine and hap penlngs immediately following. Ho told ot cases that Dr. Wayson had since treated and declared that tho re sults showed conclusively that tho mo tlfclneof witness alone was being em ployed. Ho told of samples ot other medicines that had been taken at tho samo time as the secret romedy had vanished, showing that a general ana lysis of his medicines had been under taken.

ATTORNEY'S A LABOR OF When the storm between the Mayor; and the Supervisors, as to who's boss, blows over, or betore, there will like ly come before th0 Board ot Super visors an appropriation bill for attor ney's fees. It is a public secret that Attorney W. A. Kinney, Democratic leader and ndviser and public spirited citizen, put a lot of brain-work into the Meyor's veto message In regard to Supervisor Logan's appropriation bill for general expenses, the consideration of which bill comes before the Board on Thurs day evening. The laborer is worthy of his hire and It is expected that Supervisor McClel lan, the Democratic minority of the Board, will introduce a bill for re muneration for Kinney's services. If he does, the Republican majority is almost likely to kill It, which event, by the way, will not causo iKInney to worry, for his was a labor of love. SET FREE George Wade, pardoned on New Year's Day after about nine years' Im prisonment under two sentences touch ing the killing of Gillespie, was yet in the custody of U. S. Marshal Hendry under a pending writ of habeas cor pus. This morning Judge Dole signed an order In court discharging the writ and releasing Wade, "said Wade hav ing been pardoned by the authorities of the Territory of Hawaii for the of fenses named in the writ." These of fenses were murder and assault with a deadly weapon, the second charge having been prosecuted while the first was held in abeyance on nn appeal up on tho question of whether the consti tution followed the flag at annexation and beiore the Organic Act went into effect. A. D. Larnach presented tho order to the court, District Attorney Brec kons suggesting changes of wording which were adopted. Judge Dole, both in usklng Mr. Breckons beforehand to appear as the court's adviser and In granting the or der, expressed his gratification at the pardon of Wade. .He said It was a wiso action on tho part ot the Terri torial authorities. "If I had released Wade on habeas corpus,"' Judge Dole remarked, "It might have caused an embarrassing sit uation. Ho might possibly have brought damage suits for false Im prisonment."
