wetter , woe bronght to the at

Washington and specific instances men
tioned of Individuals who would thus
be barred from participation in the new
company, To this the custodian r
rdled that he did not core. The United
Statea. government, he said, was not
tniing the stock away frua eaemv sub
jects to transfer it to the custody of
any other foreign nation, oo mnttnr
how friendly. It was to insure a hold
int of the com pan v which should be
entirely American during the period of
the war and for three vears thereafter
that the forfeiture of stock to the gov
crnnvat daring the war period and Int
er to the company was provided.
Tat ar Leave
Some Criticism of the "overnment 'r

objection were raised on various
grpnhds. , One of theaw was that there'
would be difficulty In floating "the

pew eocapaay aalesa the limit m rais
ed. Tbie was answered in part by the
Inereaslag of tbe number of shares Um
it ad to a sisgle subscriber. . But the
real answer to it Is the provision in the
plan Which eaya th eimtodinn will take
for th (rovernmsst the residue of cani
l tick In th;new eompnnv left after
the Hoaolulu nnblle ha aubaeribod. In i
other words if Bonnlulans do not want ;

Speculation Is Rife
As To Changes
Will Make
Officialdom Is Guessing Anxious
y wOne Suggestion Is That
Pinkham May Step Down' Into
While officialdom at the Capitol
building is awaiting tbe change la the
office of the Governor, which will be
mad when the nomination of Col. C.
J, McCarthy ia confirmed by the son
ata and he is inaugurated, speculation
eoaeeraiag what the new Governor will
do in connection with a number of
appointments that are to be made is
the one absorbing theme. Colonel Mc
Carthy has dee lined to go into ques
tions of the kind until he takes of
Nothing has come from Washington
in the past tweuty-four hours indicat
ing when actioa will be taken by the
senate concerning the nomination.
Colonel McCarthy said, yesterday that
he was as much in the dark as any
one -eo-far as the matter of his con
firmation ia concerned.
Expect Quick Actios,
It .was, held that as the question of
a special session of the legislature is
being held .up, this may hast on actiou
at Washington and the senate may net
within a day or two. Until Colonel
McCarthy's nomination was made on
a Thursday, it was accepted that imm
lnations were usually made at Wsh
ington on Fridays. Ordinarily in the
post confirmations of nominations have
been made on Thursday, but an the
rule was broken in the matter of the
nomination, it may also be disregard
ed in the matter of confirmation. It
is generally accepted, however, that
the confirmation will be made within
the next week.
No pretest from any quarter over
the nomination of Colonel McCarthy
has arisen in Honolulu and this in tak
en as another reason for believing Hint
there will be little or no delny about
I confirmation. After action is taken
by tbe senate Colonel McCarthy's
commission as Governor will bo issued
and notice will be forwarded to Ho
nolulu by cable. As soon as this mes
sage comes Colonel McCarthy will take
over Ii i h new duties. Colonel McCar
thy said himself yesterday that it may
happen that he will not take oflice um
til the first of June.
May Nam Pinkham
One report heard about the Cnpitol
building concerning the appointment of
a successor to Colonel McCarthy in the
oflice of territorial trasurer is that
Governor Pinkham himself may be
named to take this place which would
effect an exchange of offices bo
tween him and Colonel McCarthy.
Questions as to who will succeed Col.
Curtis V. Iaukea ia the event that he
leaves the oflice -of secretary f the
Territory have been answered in vuri
us ways. It is said that Land Com
missionor Bur tram G. Riveuburgh, who
has been a heel horse of the Dein
oerutie party here, is in line for the
plat; and should the vacancy occur
it is believed tbe office may be his for
the asking. Whether or not ho wants
it i another Matter.
Charles Jt. Parbea, who has remained
uoininsl superintendent of public works
since he entered the national forces,
uoid who is low in i'rauee, probably
will be dropped, though how this will
be brought about is a question, as it is
not thought that It will be practicable
to call for his formal resignation.
Since Forbes went away, W. B. Hobby
has been acting superintendent of pub
lie works and is lu line for the place.
Another appointment that is to be
made itf that of a successor to Colonel
McCarthy himself as uiembvr of the
harbor board.

Compels Vessels Carrying Goods

Return To Port
WAHHINOTOX, April oOermaay
has forced Spanish ships that had
cleared Spanish port loaded with sup
plies for General Pershing's army I
rrance to return to port. This was
j learned this afternoon from an author
itative source. The Spanish ambaasa
dor, Benor Kiano, called at the elate
department today and conferred with
Counsellor Frank I. Polk. It I n
- deratood the Rpanish shipping agree
J ment was discussed. Neither the art-
baeaador nor the state department offi
cials would comment en what took
place at the conference, however.
WA8HINGTOX, April 6 Germany
has served what amounts to aa alti
matum upon Spain, demanding repu
diation of the trade agree me. at reached
between that nation and tbe United
States. It has been made plain to the
Madrid government, the Berlin des-
f atrhes received here today say, that
f the trade agreement ia enforced,
Gcrmaa submarines will inaugurate, a
general campaign of sinkings agaiaat
Rpanish ships bringing supplier front
this country. As a result, a really
serious condition has developed, which
may have far-reaching couseqneocee
to this country.
May Prove Serious
, Great quantities of supplies that are
badly needed by General Pershing's

the Spanish government finally decide
tney cannot live up to the trade agree
ment, the lack of these supplies may
prove serious.
That these goods have not gone fore
ward Is declared to be due to the
American war trade board. It hal
failed to take advantage of the agree
ment and send forward the supplies
that were 'promised to Spain in. re
turn for ! rd, nf the P.ku
mcuts. It la nn.ierstrKMt th.r tkt. aZ
lay has been due to the necessity ot
completing certain investigations, but
nevertheless, the reorts received here
from Madrid indicate that the Spaar
lah government is intensely displeased
because of it. And the action of King
Alfonso's cabinet may be influenced
by this unless a satisfactory explanftV
tion is forthcoming through diplomatic
sources. ,
While Spain has given more er leas
aid to Germany and that eountry ia a
veritable nest of German spies operate
Ing against the Entente; officials had
built great hopes on the new trade
agreement to change this situation.
The Madrid government is understood
to have frankly promised that it would
enforce the strictest neutrality aaf
would stamp out the- U-boat bases that
are known to be along the Spanish
