Government Dredger is
Reported to Be
Breaking Up.
' New ranges have been, placed at
IPearl Harbor by order of the Lighthouse
Board and entrance to the lochs
.may now bo easily picked up by all
masters of vessels who wish to mako
-an entrance. While the new marks
place the range of the dredged channel
exactly and are therefore valuable
-olds to navigation, the navigators
themselves are not at present forthcoming
the only people who pass In
.and out of Pearl Harbor channel be-Ung
the yachtsmen who know the .way
in the dark and whose craft do not
-draw sufficient water to compel -them
to keep to the channel, the rice sloop
if rom Alea, the cordwood schooners Ada
-and Rob Roy whose skippers still use
the old land mark ranges of the
windmill and the point where
range dips into the plain, and the
Japanese sampans whose draught enables
them to get In easily as long as
they avoid the reef (breakers.
The new range however, will be used
occasionally by the government tugs
iand such vessels as may ultimately
make use of the lochs and show that
the government still takes some Interest
In the development of the harbor.
"The old fairway buoy which drifted
.way has been brought to Honolulu
but has not been taken back and Its
presence Is now unnecessary with the
"now ranges. The entrance proper to
the channel It marked with spar buoys,
-red for starboard and black for port
The ranges as planned by Lieutenant
Slattery and placed by Lieut. Nlblack
-are easily picked up and consist of a
-diamond shaped target with two small
tinders one on each side and set well
"back of this and plainly visible against
the green back ground, what is technically
termed a windmill, consisting of
two cross pieces fashioned like a St.
lAndrew's cross. When this windmill
is completely obliterated or covered
by the forward diamond the fair way
to the harbor Is clear and further progress
plain by the aid of the piles put
down by Captain Rodman which mark
the reefs of the channel and Inner
water. .
Last Sunday the naval launch and
Conradt's power boat with the yachts
Tdi Paloma, Spray, Hawaii and Gladys
discovered that a portion of the old
government dredger which was sunk
and remained on the edge of the reef
Jiad become detached and was floating
In mid channel a menace to incoming
or outgoing craft. The body of the
dredger was still vlilble lying In Its
-usual position but this free portion,
a foot below the water apparently,
was drifting round aimlessly, constituting
a danger to yachts keeping
the channel. It has probably drifted'
to sea or washed up on the reef by
this time but It Indicates that the body
of the dredger Is breaking up gradually
under the stress of wind and tide
and surce.
Solomon Kcapunl, a Reform School
3ad, was committed for trial to the
"Federal Court by Commissioner A. F.
-Judd yesterday, on the charge of forging
the name of a payee to a
money order for $5. The boy was
.given the benefit of the usual caution
that he need say nothing which might
criminate him, while being
by Assistant District Attorney
Dunne. Yet he admitted he forged the
signature of George Hlpa, to whom
the order had been endorsed by Mrs.
Hlpa. He said further that he assumed
the name of Henry Smith so
thnt he could not be Identified. When
Ills Identification ns the holder of the
-order was demanded at the pay window,
Keapunl was Identified as himself
by a letter carrier who knew him.
He had taken delivery of four letters
out of the postofllce, one of which con- '
tallied the prize package that may
dvo him. penitentiary Instead of reformatory.

Agneo C. Gait vs. Lulla Walanuka,
ejectment, developed some Interesting
points before Judge Gear yesterday. S.
M. Ballou represented the plaintiff,
and D. L. Wlthlngton and W. L. Whitney
for the defendant. One question
seemed to be upon adverse possession
In relation to crown lands. Mr. Ballou
went largely Into history. One of
his observations was that, little by
little, a process waq accomplished In
the Hawaiian Islands between 1848 and
1865, which had taken a thousand years
to accomplish in England. This was
the segregation of the crown lands
from the private estate of the sovereign.
Owing to the Incumbrances that
Kamehameha IV. left upon the crown
lands, the Legislature in 1864 passed a
measure for the relief of the sovereign,
which Kamehameha V. approved. Besides
providing for payment of the
late king's mortgage debts: this law
made the crown lands forever Inalienable.
Judge Gear asked If crown lands on
Maul were not alienated to Claus
Mr. Ballou replied that the grant to
Spreckels was by Princess Ruth and
toeing attacked the Legislature had to
pass a special law to ratify but a portion
of the grant, the ahupuoa of
to Spreckels as a compromise.
At the close of yesterday's hearing
a proposition was pending to have the
fine points that developed submitted
to the Supreme Court before spending
more time on the general merits of the
Following the filing of exceptions by
defendants In the suit of Territory of
Hawaii vs. Cotton Bros. & Co., to the
verdict before6 Judge Gear for $25,000
damages and to the court's denial of
motion for a new trial, E. J. Cotton, C.
E. Cotton and Jas. B. Agasslz as principals
and the PacMe Surety Co. as
surety filed a bond In 125,100 on appeal.
This secures the Territory against any
removal of property by defendants
from the Territory.
Judge Gear has signed an order approving
the accounts and granting the
discharge bf James E. Fullerton, administrator
of the estate of W. C.
Clench of Honolulu, deceased.
Judge Gear has appointed Henry E.
Cooper executor of the will of Leonldas
Blllman under bond of J3000.
Judge Gear has approved the accounts
and ordered the discharge of

estate In Hawaii of John C. Balrd, who

District Attorney here.
Waipahu, June 7, 1904.
Editor Advertiser: I see by your issue
of this date that Sheriff Fernandez
of this district gets the credit for arresting
the Porto Rican, Echinto Sanchez,
at this place on yesterday. Permit
me to say that Mr. Fernandez did not
make the arrest, un yesterday morning,
June 6, Mr. Fernandez informed the
policeman of the Oahu Sugar Co. that
Sanchez was employed on the plantation;
at the same time giving a photo
of the man. The plantation police showed
the photo to the team Luna, who
said the man was working for him. They
then arranged to no to the field and get
the man; but before starting they were
joined by Mr. Fernandez who accompanied
them to the field where the arrest
was made by the plantation police,
who handcuffed the man and took him
to the plantation office where the prisoner
was turned over to the Sheriff.
Mr. Fernandez watched the Porto Rican
camp for several hours Sunday night,
hut could not catch his man. But within
two hours after giving the photo to
the plantation police the man was in
custody. FAIR PLAY.

J. S. Low Brings Suit to
i . II 1 I, I
as Guardian of Annie T. K. Parker.
Makes Strong Charges.
(From Thursday's Advertiser.)
Proceedings were entered In the Circuit
Court yesterday to have Alfred W.
Carter removed from tho ofllce of guardian
of Annie Thclmn K. Parker, a
minor. J. S. Low, ns next friend of the
minor, mnkes the motion In probate,
backing It with an affidavit. Judge
Gear signs an order appointing J. S.
Low as guardian nd litem of the minor
In all the matters of tho motion, and
setting the motion for hearing before
him at chambers on June 2S. It Is also
ordered that the papers be served upon
A. W. Carter, upon the minor and upon
Elizabeth Jane Knight, mother of the
Annie T. K. Parker Is the daughter of
the late John P. Parker, Jr., and granddaughter
of Samuel Parker, and she
owns a half Interest In the Parker
Ranch. , As previously reported, Eben
P. Low went to Hawaii In the4steamer
Kinau on Tuesday, under Instructions
from Samuel Parker, owner of the other
half Interest, to take over the management
of the Parker Ranch. A wireless
message was received from the place
yesterday morning stating that P. W.
Carter, the manager In possession, refused
to surrender the management to
Low. Alfred W. Carter Is on the ground
and said to be advising his brother to
make resistance.
, J. S. Low, In the suit entered, moves
that A. W. Carter "bo removed as such
guardian on the ground that he Is an
unsuitable person to act as such guardian,
In that he Is charging the estate
of said minor with unreasonable and
extortionate commissions." Vurther,
"that he Is mismanaging the estate bf
said minor, and refuses to consent to
a sale of certain of the real estate of
said minor, when It Is for the benefit
of the said minor that the same should
be sold."
Mr. Low's affidavit opens with a
statement that his mother is the first
cousin of Samuel Parker, grandfather
of the minor, over whose property A.
W. Carter was appointed guardian on
September 25, 1899. John P. Parker,
father of the minor, and the deponent
were reared together In the home of
John P. Parker the elder. They "grew
from childhood to manhood together,
and were as fond of each other as
though they were brothers." By reason
of such relations deponent "has always
taken a great Interest In the affairs
of said minors." From such ground
Mr. Low proceeds to make hlB complaints
against Carter as follows, much
condensed from the legal document:
A. W. Carter has charged the minor's
estate wltb commissions at the rate
of 10 per cent, 7 per cent and E per
cent on the gross income, which though
the statutory commissions are, in view
of the large Income, "In excess of the
value of the services rendered. Thus,
In 1903 the guardian's commissions
amounted to $2091.48. Deponent Is Informed
that reputable and responsible
business men In Honolulu would do the
same work for a commission not to exceed
5 per cent; he believes that a
competent and reliable person can be
secured to do It (or 3 per cent, and
that Carter Is only charging 3' on
gross Income for almost similar 'services.
Since the death of John P. Parker
the elder about thirteen years ago,
Samuel Parker has carried on the business
of the Parker Ranch partnership.
Nearly all of tho Income of the minor
Is derived from said partnership, and
Carter has charged 3 per cent on the
gross Income of tho ranch, so that not
only docs he charge tho statutory com-
missions before mentioned, but tho 3'.4
per cent stated, making his conimls
solns exceed 1314, 10V4 and S',i per cent,
nnd that 3Vi per cent is also nn
ninount for Carter to charge for
looking after tho business of tho ranch.

III. Ittllk in tllillv lit
Remove Alf. W. Carter
or tho enterprise will bo abandoned.
Tho Paauhau Plantation Co., is willing
to grant the ditch right of way
In case It purchases tho land. A. W.
Carter 1 said to havo mado a verbal
offer, after Inspecting the land, to sell It
to. Paauhau Plantation Co., for J121.00O.
The ofTcr wns accepted, "whereupon,"
the deponent says, "said A. W, Carter
Imposed another condition, namely,
that he would sell only In case he
could purchase the Interest of said
Samuel Parker In sold partnership or
Parker Ranch.
"That deponent believe that this
condition was Imposed with tho expectation
that Influence could thereby bo
brought to bear upon said Samuel
Parker to sell his said Interest for less
than Its actual value, for the reason,
as deponent also believes, said A. W.
Carter supposed that said Samuel Parker
was largely Interested In said Ditch
Company, and. In order that said ditch
could be constructed, said Samuel
would sacrifice his interest In sold
Mr. Low goes on to state that the
condition being unreasonable and beyond
the power of Paauhau Plantation
Co., to comply with, the sale of
the land was not consummated. Tho
price Carter agreed to accept was a
very high price, for tlfe reason that as
good or better land In or near the sam
locality In small lots sells for $40 and
less per acre.
It Is set forth that the said sum of
$124,000 If put out at interest would produce
to the minor about 17440 per annum,
which would Increase the net annual
Income of her estate $6240. In
addition deponent Is Informed and believes
that It Is very doubtful If, at
the end of seven years, anything like
$124,000 can be obtained for said land
In case said ditch shall not be constructed,
and he also believes It will
then be Impossible to lease the land
for a sum equivalent to the Interest
on $124,000, as a large part of It might
then be valuable only as pasture land-Finally,
the affidavit says:
"That deponent alleges that sold A.
W. Carter has disregarded the best
Interests of said minor, and that Bald
minor Is being subjected annually to
great loss by reason of the mismanagement
of her estate In consquenca
of the acta of said A. W. Carter."
J. T. MoCrosson, who is Interested in
the Hamakua Ditch Co., said yester
day afternoon that It was the blockade
on the Parker Ranch which prevented
the success of tho mission of
Mr. Pollltz from San Francisco, who
remained here flvo weeks making a
futllo endeavor to purchase the right
of way for the ditch.
J. Alfred Magoon, who 1a attorney,
for Mr. Low, stated on filing the papers
that he understood F. W. Carter
was making a shotgun resistance to
tho assumption of the ranch management
by Eben P. Low.
J. W. Pratt, Commissioner of Public
Lands, yesterday made the startling
statement that thirty thousand dollars
would scarcely cover the shortage In
the Land Office and its sub-agencies.
It was when he was depositing $7D00
of land receipts in the Treasury that
Mr. Pratt made the remark to A. J.
Campbell, Treasurer, that he would give
four times the sum of the deposit then
being made In return for the total
shortage still under Investigation by
Auditor Fisher, now engaged at the
Hllo sub-agency.
.Another piece of dishonesty in land
transactions has Just been discovered on
the Island of Hawaii. Through false
testimony a surveyer was deceived into
making Incorrect maps, whereby tho
Government has been done out of seven
thousand dollars' vorth of rlco land.

Dr. Mays Gives Opinion
About the Alleged
Leprosy Cure.
President L. E. Pinkhatn'a weekly
message to tho Board of Health yesterday
was a short one. Those present
with the president were Dr. W. II
Mays, John C. Lane, Fred. C. Smith
and Mark P. Robinson. Dr. Pratt act
ed ns secretnry, Miss Mae Weir,
stenographer, being nlso In attendance,
The president's letter follows:
"The business before the Board at
this date Is limited and routine In
"I ask your approval of n commission
Issued to Dr. J. S. B. Pratt a
Chief Sanltnry Officer, Inspector of
Cemeteries and Agent of the Board of
Health dated May 1, 1904.
"Tou are requested to authorize n
call for tenders for supplies for tho
various branches of this Department
for ensuing six months.
"Vouchers have been made up for
the subsidies to tho various 'hospitals
covering the tlmo reports required havo
boon roolved."
Approval was passed of tho presi
dent's action In granting a permit to
Mr. and Mrs. Myers to go to the leper
settlement, nlso one to Who Lcong
nnd Who Chin to visit the settlement
whllo the steamer is In port.
Tho calling for tenders for supplies
was also approved,
Dr. W. H. Maya presented tho following
report, signed by himself and
Mr. Robinson:
"Tour Committee on Cemeteries, to
whom was referred the request of Rov.
M. E. Sllva for permission to bury In
Lot 2 of the Kalaepohaku cemetery,
report aa follows:
"Wo recommend that such permission
be granted, provided that each
and every interment be recorded in a
book kept for that purpose, and correspondingly
numbered on a plot of
said burial lot. And provided also that
each grave be accurately marked by
a Btake or post at head and foot, and
numbered thereon."
A plan on file shows the lot In ques
tion to bo situated within an angle
formed by the meeting of the Insane
Asylum burial ground and a prlvato
burying ground. So long as Interments
are permitted In those plots, the
committee did not see how Mr. Sllva
could be refused the requested permission
for his people.
Reports of the rood commissioner, tho
plumbing Inspector and tho Hilo
Inspector were read. Inspector
Bowman of Hllo gave details of his
work for May, Including 138 orders carried
out and 520 inspections.
Dr. L. E. Cofer, crief quarantine offi

Yokohama two weeks to May 22
Mr. Lane offered a resolution on tho
subject of a reported euro of leprosy
in Louisiana, which was read and discussed.
Thu preamble mentioned a
newHpaper clipping attached as tho
basis of tho report.
Dr. Mays while expressing npprovnl
of the purpose of tho resolution, stated
his belief thnt the alleged remedy wns
simply Chnumoogra oil, which had been
tried In every leper settlement In thoi
world. It had well-known pnlllatlvo
effects, but there had never been a j
enso where It had
cured leprosy. There was a furore
over the claimed virtues of this oil
fifteen years ago, but thorough tests
mndo In this country and elsewhere
hnd not yielded tho results anticipated.
After Homo general dlscUKslou, Dr.
Mays seconded tho resolution, which

The Local and Federal
Troops Settling
Camp MacArthur, near Camp Mc
Klnley, Wnlklkl, Wednesday, Juno 7:
Afternoon arrived before tho camp
of the First Regiment, National Guard
of Hawaii, became a tented city, and
the guardsmen were a hungry lot before
their appetites wcro satlsflcd wltb
bread, pol, beans, bacon and coffee.
Tho two battalions arrived at
by 9:30 a, m.land at once began
to prepare tho camp for a residence
which will continue until Sunday afternoon.
Owing to tho nrrlval of tho
transport Sheridan from San Francisco
tho U. 8. army wagons, -which wero
to transport the Impedimenta from tho
armory to tho camp, were mostly required
by tho U. S. Quartermaster's
department, and the baggage arrived
at tho camp quite late.
This delayed tho erection of the
tented city, but by 4 p. m., the companies
had been provided for, streets
were laid out, tho otllcers tenta had
been raised in a row facing the company
streets at right nngleo, and headquarters
accommodations were in
Tho regulars at Camp McKinley had
previously staked out the anticipated
canvas city under direction of Lieut.
Wesley Hamilton, Artillery Corps, U.
S. A., in Woiklkl at a point oppoatt
James B. Castle's promises, and between
tho Watklki drive and the roc,
track. A portion of tho camp is covered
with trees, headquarters being
established In the thickest portion, th
companies being assigned to less shady
places. Tho ground is somewhat
weedy but by Friday the trampling ot
hundreds of feet will lay tho weeds
Company A occupies the townslde of
tho camp, tho remaining companies
being arranged toward Diamond Head
in alphabetical order. The Walluku
Company, In khaki uniforms splashed
with tho red insignia of tho arUlleiTf
arrived early In the forenoon on the
steamer Llkellke, and tho Hllo Company
came during the evening, reservations
of tents having been made for
both organizations.
Col. Jones, Lieut. Col. Zelgler, Majors
Wall and Riley superintended ths
laying out of tho camp.
The kitchens for tho various companies
were arranged on tho seaward
side of tho company quarters, and soon
tho cooks had savory edibles boiling,
roasting, broiling and steaming to tho
entire satisfaction of the guardsmen.
Big loaves of bread, barrels of pol,
meats, beans nnd canned stuff were
prepared and nt 6 o'clock tho tired
militiamen were given tliclr first
square meal elnco breakfast.
Col. Jones's first order after making
plans for the erection of tho camp
tents, was to post sentries and the
men "hiked" their tieats as If to ths
manner born.
It was a busy day throughout, every
man being required to work, and work
hard, until ho had contributed to ths
collective industry In making the camp
a placo which would meet tho approval
of tho regular army officers. Several
nrmy ofllcers from tho transport and
Camp McKinley visited the tented ctty,
and showed much Interest In tho
guardsmen's work.
Late In the day lanterns wero distributed
to the companies and the
camp at evening beenmo a conglomeration
of glimmering beacons.
The officers of tho regiment early discarded
their old and familiar blue
blouses for khaki. Thu entire regiment
will probably appear In khaki during
tho enenmnment.
Tho officers, with ono exception, In
the person of nn olllclous captain at
tached to headquarters, were most cordial
to visitors. Tho officers wore visited
by a number of pooplo Interested
In tho regiment nnd Col. Jones person,
ally saw to thulr comfort.
As Saturday Is a holiday, there will
