at with Rodiek and Sehroeder in
the ease. . He gave thia interview ia
answer to a question of the probability
of pleas of guilty being entered by
himself, (.Frans Bopp,. Baron Eehardt
voa Schaek, Georg Rodiek and U. A.
: Sehroeder. This waa the aight before
the change ef plea. 1 ;'-'
CHvea Different Aspect .''!'..'
Von Brinekea's' reasons for a change
of plea from guilty to not guilty do
not harmonise very well with the state
meat tent here for publication by the
attorneys for Bodies. .. and Sehroeder.
, . He makes no excuses of ignorance of
, the law, that he and they did net
know they were violating the laws of
the XTnited States, nor does he pretend
... loyalty to . the United Htatea after
the declaration of war. He eomes out
. clearly and squarely and advisee the
entering of a, plea of guilty' for the
good of Germany. He advises them to
' sacrifice possibilities of freedom for
the aake of preventing Germany ap
pearing; in an even worse light thai
, now, ia order that their native eoun-
; try be spared the shame land humilla
' tioa .of further and, worse disclosures
... of infamy.--
It was ia the United States diseiplin
' ary barracks. st'Aleatras Island that
' the lieutenant gave, his interview t
.: the'" ban . Francisco Chronicle and
relative to it that paper published. the
. following:
... V I think we can aerve our country
beat . by . pleading guilty and avoiding
. further, exposurea in court ; proeeed
' - ings.ae aaid. . Every nation at war
' ia bound to be involved in conspira
cies, and the less said about these
case the better it" will be for Ger
- many. But if we don't plead guilty
tomorrow I believe we never will. ,
Confession Out of Quae tioa
"Asked if he thought it likely that
uy one of the defendanta might sup
. plement his plea of guilty with a eon
fession, Lieutenant von Brlneken said:
. 'Confession ia out of the question.
Remember, I am an officer of the
German army. If I were to rcr 1
' would be a traitor to my country.'
''According to voa Brlneken, former
' Consul-General Bopp and Vice-Consul
. von Schick were advised yesterday
afternoon ., by their attorneys, George
v .; A, MeGowaa and Theodore Roche, te
plead - guilty, and apparently - were
; ready to accept the advice. Rodiek
and Sehroeder, German agents arrest-
' ed . in Hawaii, are held at Aleatras
. 'Island.
. Warm To Begin Sentence
"'."Hitting on a low wooden chest,
-while Capt. Robert T. Hnow occu
pied the chair and another visitor
, eat oa tbe bed in. the little room ia
which he had been confined for three
: week's, von .Brineken enlarged on his
reasons for pleading guilty.
" 'I want to begin to serve my sen
tenee,' he said, 'I want to take my
medicine. . It is possible that I will be
paroled or pardoned; this way I am
. held prisoner indefinitely, and if we
7 lose on nppeal, I will have to start an
', ether term in prison.'
"In a larger room adjoining von
Brinekea's, Bopp nnd voa He hack and
a number of other priitanere sat and
' read a ad wrote or paced up and down
m the chamber. Von Brineken was wait-
. ing for a final conference with them.
According to, von Brineken, each man
waa ready to sad it, and awaited a
f MU discussion' of the matter with the
-.' ethers.'! .
BmnggBng Scheme Explained
' ,"Von Brineken explained freely a
report that he bad beea iavolvcd in a
..' plot te smuggle arma into Mexico.
" Tne proposition was advanced to
my secretary and. we refused to touch
. it, he (aaid. . 'Two men approached ,ns
' with a. plan to salvage two Diesel en-
tinee t?om a sunken vessel off the
rexicsn coast.' They said a high Mex
irsn official wanted to smuggle lurjre
amount, of gold' into the United States
and wasted us to send machine guna
" Into Mexico.
" 'Jt!did not appeal to me. I felt
that tw adventurers were trying to

Out of Revelations
United States Attorney Believes
Disclosures Found In Diary of
Geier's Captain Will Not Be
Followed Up Locatlf
. The revelationa of Hun treachery in
Honolulu as disclosed in the personal
diary of Capt. Karl : Grasshof , torn
maader of the former German cruiser
Oeier, will . not be the subject of a
federal grand jury investigation n
leaa specific Instrnctions are received
from the department - of .justice at
Washington, according to a statement
made yesterday afternoon by United
Htatea Attoraey 8. C. Huber.
It is the- opinion tt Mr. Huber that
ho such instructions will be received by
him. because, he says, the most import
ant features of the evidence revealed
in Grasshof 's diary are directly con
nected with the charge to- which both
Georg Rodiek and H. A. Hchroeder have
pleaded guilty ia 8aa Francisco. .
"F. V. Klebahn, head of Haek
feld's shipping department, was not, in
my opinion, involvsd ia the conspiracy
here to such an extent aa would war
rant the federal grand jury conducting
aa investigation," said Huber. "From
the extracts of Grasshof 'a diary pub
lished la the papera, Klebaha did not
figure very prominently," he added,
"and I think it is hardly likely that
tbe department of justice will order an
inquiry ia his connection. '
"Bot apart from everything," said
Mr. Huber, "my office ia unable to be.
gin any investigation or prosecution,, in
a certain list of casea, without specific
instructions from the department of
justice at Washington. These eases in
clude treason and tbe violation of .neu

"I have two more weeks to finish
the school aad then it 's Han Diego or
some other flying school for six weeks
or so and then the Front.
"There'll be less of a strain in the
air at the Front than that under whict
we have been and are now the strain

Of course we ore getting drill regular

an aviator nhould know.
"There are about 400 flying cadets
(that's our rank) in the school. A

t Changes of general Interest to tbe

false. One of- the oldtime.and best
known houses of the Fort Street busl
aewyiection is to go into new hands. -On
or about the first of the year the
business of Whitney k Marsh, Ltd. Is
to be taken ever by Ferriandea k Cor
rea, say reports that have not been de
nied by 'any of the interested parties,
although, at the store of. Fernandex
Correa, Frank M. Correa aaid yester
day ' afternoon that he would . prefer
neither to connrm nor deny the report
at this time. He admitted, however.
that he, was aware that the report hail
become current. Neither was any. de
nial made at the Whitney k Marsh rs
Two Btorea For Time
It ia understood that immediately af
ter the first of the year the business,
stock and fixtures of Whitner Marsh,

overto Fernandez k Correa and that
firm will proceed to dispose of the
stock and will sontinue at the present
Whitney Jb -Marsh store In the same or
a similar line of business. . Pending
the disposal of the present stocks' of
both houses the younger firm will, it is
expected, , retain its present store at

Joseph V. Fernandex and Frank M.
Correa are; 'representative buainess men
of the younger element of the city. It

aneount.' (Their'" Home of Linens and
Fancy Dry Goods" at the corner of
Fort and "Beretsnia Streets in the Har

ond, while the . once formidable Hui
Nalu waa outdistanced throughout,
earning but three points during the
whole , meet. With Duke" P, Kahana
moka.out of the racea, he being unable
to compete owing to- the orders ct his
physician, the Hui Natus made but a
sorry showing. . . .
There were a number of close and ex
citing events last bight, the girls stag
ing particularly two thrilling numbers.
One Hawaiian record waa broken last
night, when little Eleanoa Lyaer of the
Women's Auxiliary made the hundred
yards in 1:17, the previous record being
1:20 I S. The pride of tbe Outrigger
Canoe Club waa treated to round after
round -of applause as "Dad" Center
ilped her out of the' tank, and Cen
r s smile stayed with him the re-
ter's smile stave
niainder of the evening.
Ludy Langer On His Mettle
. Another exciting event was the .lOO-
meter race between LiUriy . Langer, un
attached, and Harold "Stubby" Kru
ger. Prom start to finish, it was seen
that Langer meant to make some kind
of a showing, even though he has been
out of the swimming game for two
rears or more. He signalied hia fare
well, for Ludy goea to the Schofield
military- training camp next month, by
breaking the former European (Eng
lish) record.
.Langer defeated Kruger by' one lap
aad sixteen feet, tbe 600-meters requir
ing twenty -seven laps and sixteen feet.
World and American record is 6:61 3 5.
The Kuropeaa record, bath with four
teen turns, being 6:66 4 8, while the
Ludy made the rlstance la 6:83 2 6.
This . race waa thrilling and exciting
yet, withal, even though Ludy Langer
was generously congratulated, to hi"
game young opponent weut also healthy
icunds of applause. ".
Belay Baca Decides Meet
,The'0-yard club relay race between
the Healauis and Outrigger waa also
an, exciting event. Stubby Kruger and
Kelil, the List two mea to take tbe wa
ter for the victorious Healanis, brought
their team and club the victory and
laurels not only in this event but for
the who) meet, for bad the Outrigger
won this l. M event they would have
raptured the meet by one point.
Although coming second ia the meet
the' OutriKfferitee ahould be congratu
lated for their showing, for the organi
sation has but only recently gone into
the swimming game. Given another
year and perhaps less it will easily take
first place in any meet in Honolulu.
There waa a fair audienee present
Inst night, although it eould bave been
better. Htill, everything went off
