CAPTAIN WEEDEN MAKES RE
CORD IN REPLACING PROPELLER
BLADE OF HIS STEAMER.
Captain Wcden or tho Lurliuo de
serves tho credit for one of the neatest
jobs ever handled in this harbor, In
the placing of tho new propeller blade
of the Lurllno In position. Tho Ko
rea, bringing tho new 5,000 pound blade
arrived at the Hackfeld dock yesterday
morning at 10 o'clock and at three
o'clock yesterday afternoon Captain
Wceden telephoned to tho office of
Castlo & Cooke mat It was in position
and everything was O. K.
Tho work was handled very nicely.
While in Kahulul Captain Weeden cal
culated out the matter to a nicety. Ho
decided thai tho work could bo dono
without the expense of docking tho
vessel and set about tho task. Tne
Lurllno was placed alongside tho rail
road dock whoro sugar was dumped
Into her forward hatches in huge quan
tities. When at Kahulul all tho su
gar was taken on board forward. Gra
dually the stern of tho big steamer be
gan to rise from tho water, till finally
the propeller appeared. It rose till
tlio hub to which the broken blade was
attached could be seen. This was de
tached and tho new blado placed in
position and secured. Then a coffer
dam of canvas was used while tho new
blade was cemented into its proper
position and the work was done.
Many or those on the waterrroi
were doubtful of the success of the
work, but Weeden "showed them."
The same sort of a job was dono in
this harbor some years ago on the
transport. Warren, but in that case the
time taken was much longer and tho
work was not handled in the shlpshapo
manner that was seen yesterday. Cap
tain Wceden was hero at the time and
watched the job, which enabled him to
avoid some of the mistakes which were
made at that time.

THE SUGAR MEN
Thoro has been a general onlckor at
tho Indictment ot the Seven Wicked
Weighers ot tho American Sugar Re
fining Company, and tho grove nssur
anco of tho company's officers that
tho men had all been discharged from
the company's eervico as soon as their
malfeasances wero discovered. They
had to bo discharged, of course, and
or course it is right that they should
be indicted; but as our neighbor, the
Wall Street Journal, points out, tho
officers or tho company that employed
them "cannot, as men or ordinary
common sense, supposo thatt he world I
ordinate employees, receiving salaries
of not moro than thirty dollnrs n
wok each at tho outside, would, among
themselves, organize a plot to put up
ward of two mlllons ot tho public's
money into tho pockets or the Ame
rican Sugar Refining Company out or
sheer altruism." No, that would be
absurd. These Indicted weighers and
checkers wero as much sinned against
as sinning. No other conjectuu is
ttnablo than that they wero employed T
for many years, and paid, to cheat.
