,, . (?rom Monday's Advertiser.
A Btory that is Interesting many
army officers and that 'Is to be told
officially baforo an army" court martial
iajiclng related, among many of tho
'of tbo service 'throughout Hawaii.
It! relates to -a" ceHaln captain of tho
Second Cavalry, wbose father is Baid to
bo prominent in army circles in
iffr issaid to have received
$&G00 for a manuscript lie did not write,
tut -soon to bo published by Houghton,
Mifflin & Co. of Bob ton,
-Local mfan in tho service say they do
not know who tho officer is. but it is
apparent that because the offending officer
lias not as yot been named his
broiler oHicors of the service will not
talk about the matter oven if thoy do
bnow.
Officer and 'Writer.
According to the story, as much as
a' yeiir ago tho army officer in question
was approached by a magazine ytritor
in Now iotk witn mo inunuscripi m
an army story, which ho wantod to sell
tbd Second Cavalry officer is dcolared
to" have bought tho story, which is now
n-press in Boston, but neglected to pay
the 500 stipulated in the agreement.
After waiting a reasonable length of
timo, the magazine writer who was
also a graduate of West Point Military
Academy wrote tho Adjutant
Oonoral of tho Army, demanding that
tho officor bo either court martialed or
made to pay his indebtedness.
o Adjntant Gmornl McCain sent for
tho accused captnin and listened to his
pjrt of tho story- Tho cavalry captain
wiid that ho had already paid for the
manuscript, and, furthermore, that he
bad not offered it for sale. Ho claimed
that he did not at any timo intend
tonUBe. it undor his own name, and that
bewas simply doing a former
a kindly service.
Ordered to Now York.
'f jJco' explanation appeared ,-to be satisfactory
to General McCain and tho officer
w'as ordered back, to Now York. In
thq courso of a fortnight ho was given
n 'special service duty to proceed to
Hawaii, Guam aud Manila in connection
with tho quattormastoT's department.
Ho was on his way hither when a wire
'from Washington held him at San Francisco.
Tho officer accused intended to sail
on 'tho Sherman on that vessel's latest
trip from San Francisco, but at the last
liiomoit his name wii scratched from
the list of p issengors. It Is understood
that an order la9 been received at San
Francisco genuine him back to New
York for courtmartinl. The officer's
name is Well known among army peoplo
here but bis friends of tho service
to divulge it until tho propor time
arrives.

OF SHARE IN RESCUE
Serious criticism has been aimed at
young Duke Ivahanamoku for an alleged
refusal on his part to divo for tho
body of rroderick Shaffer, tho navy
bugler drowned nt Waikikl Saturday,
thcro was still a possible chance
thnt tho man's lifo could be saved.
Statements hayo been freely made that
oung Duko based his Tcfusal on tho
ground that the wator was too muddy
and that ha would bo untiblo to see,
Duko's statement was taken yesterday.
Ho says:
"1 was, in tho Moana
dressing to go downtown," said Duke,
yesterday, "when some ono rushed in
.and said that thcro was a woman
drowning, asking me to come out and
'get' her, I went outsido and saw her
'.struggling in tho water and at once
'rushed in-and put my tights on, got
mu surf board and staited out after
'her.
' 'I Teachod tho spot at tho same time
that Ford and Ralph Williams aid. I got
tho' woman 'a arms around my neck and
was holpcd in with her by thoiothers.
Thoy were Blow and sho "was becoming
unconscious us I finally got her to the
bath-house. Sorao ono dressed her and
I was asked to carry her up to a room
in tho Sfoana which I did. Then I went
, out again aa I heard thero was a man
'missing. I nnd other Hul Nalu hoys
' saw two sailors on surfboards a long
way oat and drifting out to soa. Thoy
wero unable to get back and so I and
tho others went out and brought them
back,
"I was asked to dire for tho other
man as I was carrying tho woman in.
Tho water was very muddy and I knew
that nothing in it could bo seen, and as
I went I told tho other Hui Nalu boys
who wero on the beaeh to keep a wnteh
all over and look for any commotion
nnywhero. Th?re -were plenty of other
people on the beach."

Secretary of War Laughs at Story
of Nippon Veterans in
These Islands.
By Ernest (H Walker.
(Mail Correspondence to Tho Advertiser.)
WASHINGTON, Januaiy 22. Henry
L. Stimson, secretary of war, denied
emphatically t6day before tho houso
committee on military affairs that thcro
are 20,000 Japanese veterans of tho
War living in Hawaii
and formed into secret military organizations,
ready to take possession of tho
Islands at any time.-' This statomont
was made to the couimittco yoster
day by Major General William U.
Carter, '' assistant to Major General
Leonard Wood, chief of stall nf tho
army.
"I have made an investigation of
Major Goneral Carter's statement and
find that the department! has inquired
into this alleged condition in Hawaii.
It is a mistake. Thoro afo many Japanese
Jthere and probably many ono timo
soldiers ajraobg thorn. Thoy aro not in
military organizations, but aro going
about their work like any other inhabitants.
Representative James Hay, of Virginia,
chairman of, the, committee, said
today;
"The only asset of! tho army is war.
The army oillccra are' always talking of
war in an effort to increase tkoariny.
They seem tp think cQPgrcss legislates
for the army. Wo do not. AVd aro legislating
for tab people of tho United
States."
Representative John J. Fit7gcrald, of
New York, chairman of tho houso appropriations
committee, took a similar
view when ho said!
"This is tho army's annual war
scare. It is trying to influenco tho
I military affairs commitloo not to
port the nay Army Reorganization bill,
which is designed to cut down expenses.
I do not think it will have tho desired
result." k
Mr. Hav believes all tho Democrats of
his committeo will support his idea of
rcorcanmnc the army. The republi
cans, ho thinks, will oppose it, taking
the side of Mr. Stimson ami Major
Genernl Wood' against a iivo year enlistment
period und a reduction in lino
olllcers.
"I am paying no attention to tho
differences among officials of tho
fanny," said Mr. Hay. "War
ment politics docB not bother mo in tho
least. J. am trying to reuuee expenses
and treat the peoplo of tho "Unltod
States fairly.'

in tho Bishop slip that 'ho is capab'lo
of becoming a world 's'Cbampion, tVin
cent Gonoves, who will bo his swim
ming companion on tho trip to tbo
mainland, gave an exhibition of what
ho can do in Jong distances. Tho pubiicj '
uaB novcr, smco the aquatic meet of
last summer, doubted tho abilities vf
tho two rjoung swimmers, but their
work yestorday has sorved to inspiro
even stronger confidence.
J)uko snain tho 100-yard distanco in
his
5" 2-5 seconds, just two seconds slower
than his timo in tho meet of last August,
and mado tho 50-yard distanco in
25 seconds. His local A. A. U. record
is 24 1 5seconds, which is albo an un
accoptod world's record for both ama
tcurs and professionals.
In tho covered by Qcnoves,
ho wont tho distance in 14:501-2. His
timo of last August was 13:3G4 5. At
that timo ho did tho milo in 29:28 3-5,
after ho had non first placo in both
tho quarter aud tho half.
No Smashing Expected. ,
Neither of tho bos wero expecting
to break records yestorday. Thoy went
into tho exhibition to show the public
that they could swim. With this idea
in viewj thero is no doubt as to their
success.
Conditions under which Duko swam
wero net by any means ideal, and ns
a matter of fact record time was uli
most impossible. To begin nt tho beginning,
tho raft from which tho start
was mndo afforded a yielding surface,
lengthening tho courso by several
inches when ho took his divo into the
water, and causing him to Bllgbtly spoil
Mb balance. In tho second place tho
stjirt was about as bad as would be
possiblo undor any circumstances. The
blank cartridge did not explode in tho
starter's gun on tho first try. although
Duko and his pacer otherwise had a
beautiful start. Tboy wore called buck,
and without giving tbcm a moment for
recovery from even that slight

Thcro -was more troublp at tho finish,
the finishing gun faillng'to explode on

tho finish, and caught tho exact instant

Aftor tho raco it was discovered that
tho starting raft was anchored fully
eighteen inches bellied the lino marking
tho beginning of tbo surveyed

In addition to all this the wator in
tho slip was covered with small driftwood,
which must have impeded tho
swimmers slightly.
