Passenger Tells How It Feels
To Be On a Vessel That Is Ap-
' parently Serving MOTarj&ttU
Man? Interesting stories have bfn
told Of the fueling experienced when a
hot ia fired icich the bow of a vessel
a ((gnat to atop. During tba laiit
two weeks, many sampan captains, ig
norant of the rale laid dowa by the
aaval authorities ia eon nee t Ion with a
yeseel entering port before tunriae and
after sunset, have observsd splashes in
the water several yard ahead follow
ing loud explosions in the vicinity of
Fort Armstrong. . Not only have the
mailer eanipana bee startled by theee
leaden missiles, but it was only a short
. time ago that the Inter-IslnnoT eteamer
(land! no was anddenly Mopped from
entering the Channel before murine,
and It toufc more thia one ehot to im
prove upon the mind of the. eaptala that
.something was radically, wrong.
,',A passenger from Maui, in telling
. the etory upon Teaching dry land, said
he waa rudely Awakened by a grinding
noise,' Which ha later learned wai the
reversing of the engine at full (peed.
, Thia particular Maui passenger aaid
that he wad been dreaming of a bril
liant Allied victory, ia which he waa a
fartirlpant. After waking from hie
roubled Bleep, ha heard a sharp re
port, as from a larga ealibered gun, and
rushing to the deck, he aaw members
of the erew hurrying la every direc
tion certain indieatioa of some un
usual occurrence.
Crew Waa la a Horry
It seemed to him that every mem
ber of the erew was bent upon getting
ft with all possible speed, his ques
tions as to the cause of the disturbance
nil remaining' unanswered. : Ho had
: just reaehed the forward rail of the
deck when h heard another loud ex
plosion followed by splssh ia ths
water a considerable diet a ace ahead.
Glancing toward Fort Armstrong, he
observed smoke being carried away
ob tba morning air, aad it waa thea
that ha realised the Claudia was serv
ing ia the capacity of a target a real
isation not altogether pleasant.
He thought of kis dream. Perhaps
tie hsdnt been dreaming at all. Hera
was a stste of aetoal warfare ia the
peaceful Pacific Isles. It was feasible
to' believe that the Islands bad been
captured by the enemy and that they
were firing good America shells upos
American vessels as they entered port.
- While all the thought of war were
passing through kis mind and ha was
just trying to decide winch was the
beat way to reach land,' and what ha
. would do to the enemy if he wera al
lowed to get there, and a million aad
one other things, the eaptaia earn
dowa from the bridge, greeting him as
ha bad dona before on many occasions.
' We're coming U a littla early,"
be aaid.' ,W(e'U just run out for a
half hour and wait for sun-up. A new
regulation, I guess." , 1
' It ' took considerable explaining an
the part of tba eaptian before tha pas
senger could be eoavinced that - the
naval authorities wera only enforcing
new regulation which had been lmpo
ed while the veesel was calling at Val
ley Isle ports. This passenger aaid that
it required' at least a couple of hours
of mental 'effort before be could con
vince himself that there hadn't been
a glorious victory la which ha was a
pampas is Stopped
- A sampan attempted to enter port a
few days shortly after daylight, and
when just across from Fort Armstrong,
the little fishing craft was brought to
halt by tha Fort Armstrong guns.
Heversl members of (he crew wera yet
asleep on the deck, but tha report of
the guns. on tha Waikikl side of the
stream soon awakened them.
One of the Japanese fishermen awoke
just ia time to hear the exploaioa and
sea 1he ball splash a short distance
ahead. . He quickly told bis mates that
nnless they swsm to Sand Island, their
craft would be destroyed and possibly
severs) or all af them either killed or
injured, 0 saying, ha jumped over
board and closed the gsp between tha
ssmpsa and the shore with Duke Ks
haaamoku speed. The esptain, aware
of having violated a regulation, gave
orders to swing the boat around aad
tetura to sea.
, Ha said later that he wanted to plek
op the fisherman who was swimming ta
shore, but with the shells striking the
water just ahead of the sampan, he
said bs deemed it wiser to get back to
sea, regardless of whether the man was
lost or not, '
The fisherman reached 'land and
perehed himself oa a rock where b
sat pondering over the situation. He
saw his ship lying peacefully Just oil
the harbor, and came to the conclu
sion that he had acted too hastily. He
was picked up by the ssmpsa which
entered the harbor just after sunrise,
, and it is ssid that when he bad the
situation fully explained to him, he
sheepishly retired to the angina room
where he remained until the boat waa

longings, started home, and bas not

Man Accused of Trying To 'Hog'
. Road and Spreading Ter
. ror Punished Severely
Judge Irwin handed out an exemplary
sentence in the police-court yesterday
morning, waea' he fined Joe Psishoo,
a rent service chauffeur, 100 and costs
on a charge of heedless driving.
PaUbon, while returning to .town
from SthotleM Barracks on the after
noon . of October 7, the testimony
showed, attempted to bog the right of
way, while proceeding st a ante of
speed estimated at more than thirty
miles aa hour, continuously sounding
his horn. There wss a heavy Sunday
afternooa traffic -and number of cars
pulled to the right and gave PaishonV
enr the road. About a mile and a halt
from Ktpapa Gulch, Patshon passed a
Ford ear driven by Peter Higgins and
containing four adults and four ehil
dren and, either because the car wa
steered too sudriealy to the right oi
on account of Paishon's car hitting it.
the Ford machine tipped over and
turned turtle, ' the occupants being

day in question and that the car trsv
eled at a alow rata of speed throughout
tha journey on account of a lady pas
senger ia tha ear who was sick. They
denied having struck any car or having
been aware that aa accident occurred.
Defendant testified along the some
line and the point., was raised by the
defense that, ia,aa much as there were
several esrs bearing the same numbei
as Paishoa 's ear on the road in the
afternoon in question, it might have
beea one of these ears which was re
sponsible for the accident.
Other Can Numbered Bams
W. J. West, a ssleeman for the von
Hamm-Young Company, testified that
oa the data in question the Arm had
between tea and twenty cars on the
road bearing tha garage number 8502,

LONDON', October 22 (Associated
1'ress)- llsveUx k Wilson, head of the
Bos men's and Firemen's Union, in
statement eiplaiuiug the policy of his
organization toward Germany says:
"I have recently been iu corresKti-deiH-c
with the leaders of the Germau
workcm, not bv any see ret or under
hulel mesns, but through communien
tions duly suuetioueil. 1 hsve called
attention to the Oermau working class
es to Hie brutal and callous V bout
murders, but the German leaders have
replied onlv tlmt what was done whs
quite justifiable.
' Whether Die rank anil file of the
Gerniun workmen ure of the same opiti
Su I do not know, but evidently those
with whom our peace at-any price
people would iii-inte us are of the
oninion that the murders of British,
allied, and iieuirnl seamen arc only iu
eitleuts of the. wur. "
"The medical profession has fHiled
to realise one basic principle connected
with its part ia this war,", says Major
Richard .Derby la n recent issue of a
medical inagnsinc. Major Derby is an
officer of the- medical reserve corps en
dutjr at Camp Yaphank, New York, one
of the- training, camps for the new
army. He is also the son-in-lnw of Ihs
one and only Teddy Roosevelt.
"Responsibility for- the aggressive
prosecution of this war lies more heav
ily on the medical profession thsn on
any other,", be continues. It is this
fact which the profession fails to real
ise, according to Major Derby,
elective. Draft Suggested
"In order to Insure the obtaining of
sufficient physicians for the continua
tion of the war,' it seems to me impera
tive that n selective draft be instituted.
The greatest . service the profession
eould do for rha country would be to
self-impose luajt a drcft, based on a '
competent classification.
; Vlt Is said that enough physicians
have Volunteered to rare for the first
million increment of the National
Army.' Mill It be possible to obtain
similar quotas for the second and third
millions by the name methods! I em
phatically do not think so. Have we
obtained through the volunteer system
the best qualified men for the dutv of
nrlrig - for-the 'sick : and woundedf
Vgnin, emphatically no. A fair propor
ion of the phyeicans.who bsve volun
teered are men who have been attracted
to (be new life through failure in the
M. The medical reserve corps today
contains too many men over forty and
too few under thirty. Many common
ties throughout the country have beea
tripped of their physicians, wheress
from many othera none hive gone. Do
these facts ahow that the medical pro
fession Is performing the best kind of
national service!",
aonolnlana Are Beady
Doctor Derby's words are interest
ing In view, of the fact that the Hono
lulu physicians, through the president
jf the medical aoeiety, Dr. I. J; Hhep
erd, have declared their entire willing
ness to serve their country in the eveat
of any medical selective draft being
necessary. ' ' '-'
Few of them have volunteered, and
of those few tab hsve received active
eommisions, one has received a reserve
commission, and two others have'been
examined. Drs. Frederick Alsup and
Joseph Mtrodc are the commissioned of
ficers, and Dr. Frank L. Putmaa of Ka
uai has been mode a major in the med
ical reserve. Dr. Young E. Colville
of ' Hilo has been examined, but the
result is not known yet.
' Many Honolulu doctors are unwilling
to give up good practises which are
worth from 4000 to 6000 a year for
a lieutenant commission ia the medical
reserve at 2000. yearly, unices it be
necessary. ' Most of them arc men of
family. Nearly half of their salary
would be required for-their own ex
penses, and they are unwilling to nsk
their families to undergo the hardships
Involved in living on a sum so much
less than they have been aceustomsd
to.. .
Necessity Xa Not Seen
. In a case of real need, ia which their
services would be vitally necessary to
the continuation of the. national wel
fare, they would gladly serve, they say,
but they do not feel that such time
has coma yet. Responsibility for the
aggressive prosecution of tha - war,
which Major Derby states lias with the
medical profession. . Is not theirs', yet.
apparently, but when the time comes in
wbien they reel insi . responsiumij
they will respond readily, according to
statements made bv several.
The 10,000 physicfans needed for the
first million men of ths new army have
been secured, but there will he 10.000
more needed for each of the second
end third millions. Judging by the
response to the first call for doctors, it
will be necessary to put a medical se
lective draft into operation to obtain
the necessary number, unless the phy
sicians of the country come forward
with much more readiness.
Any who would volunteer now eould
be used, without doubt. It is likely
that the second draft for. the National
Army may be made in January. A
rivilian doctor reouires a short train
ing course before undertaking military
niedjf.-al practise. 'Iliose who would
volunteer now would be prepared for
the moment of need, and would perhapi
be able to do their bit for their country
nd flsc when others were still talking
about the necessity of n draft to obtain
enough skilled phvsirlsns to keep hun
dreds of thousands of Uncle Barn's
bnvs in fighting health.

world in 1912, when comparatively un
known in the swimming world, he won
the hundred meters at the Olympic
games in Stockholm and set a world
record. Critics In the East picked his
stroke to pieces and found out mnnv
interesting things. They all bad s
resson to offer for his great speed.
They all differed. It was an elastic
twist of the ankle, or a flip of bis
snaggy head, or some such thing,
"After my experience riding the surf
at Honolulu, or rather attempting to
ride the waves on a surf-board, pad
dllng the heavy board back out through
the surf, and chasing the board aftei
I had fallen off and the wave had car
ried the plank some hundred yards in
shore, I began to see where the Hs
wnliane got their peculiar stroke, and
where Duke had developed bis wonder
ful stamina,
" Paddling a board develops the back
snd shoulders wonderfully, and keeps
ths waistVlown. The secret of Duke's
swimming' Is the ' nisrvrlous strength
of his arms and shoulders, due to his
daily work in the surf. Tbst also Is
ths answer to his remarkable come
bark. He has been out of competi
tion for a year, yet that does not mean
the same upplied to him as it does to
sn sthlete in the States..
. "lie has been in the water nearly
every day for the last year, and has
done more work 'is tbst time than
the ordinary swimmer training bard
for a meet does. Consequently when
the time came for the meet, instead
of failing to come back, as so many
expected him to do, he 'proved that hs
bad never been away."
