The machine piloted by Major Clark is a seaplane and not fitted
for landing on terra firma, having pontoons for riding upon the
water. Any attempt to "land" in a seaplane, would result in a sud
den shock and a probable crumpling of the machine. The country
.-iroitnd the Shipman Ranch is covered with timber, and is extremely
rough terrain and covered everywhere wrth lava.
Persons who are thoroughly acquainted with Hawaii believe
that Major Clark, flying high first passed above Hawaii at Halawa,
and then, swinging inward, went southeast, circling a round on the
Hilo side of Mauna Kea until he was over the Shipntan Ranch.
Providing there was ample daylight at that time and the fog not
too thick, the, water on the Kona 6ide of the island could be ob
served by Clark and he could have planed down to that shore, or
could also have seen the water on the Kau side of the island.
If he went down to the latter shore he probably passed over
Kilai'c;i volcano.
In army circles they have every faith in the major's safety and
believe he is perfectly safe.
Hy the time the aviator was heard over Shipman Ranch he had
1 ecu flying about three hours, which is a linger time than he had
Ikini up in his flights over Honolulu. One of his longest flights
was on Tuesday when he remained tip about two hours and a
Whatever may nave happened military air flight service from
Honolulu to the island of Hawaii, via Mani, was an accomplished
.fact, and he "had the privilege of being the first air pilot to make
such a flight in the Pacific Ocean.
His departure yesterday morning from l'ort Kainehameh was
made an occasion for a demonstration, for the entire -army .popula
tion turned out to watch the start. As the seaplane left its base,
three cheers followed him from officers and enlisted men alike.
His flight included a course over Honolulu, acrpSs'the channel,
over the JLeer Settlement on Molokai, over that island, then across
the intervening channel until he dropped down in to. the 'bay of La
haina, two and a half hours after leaving Honolulu.
His plan when he left Fort Kamehameha was to make the trip
to the' Cig''lslaa3' in two flights, and to fly back to Honolulu this
morning direct from Hilo, without making a stop at the Valley Isle.
His flight w, undertaken yesterday after many delays during
t-lK.- past few wekibut during this tjiwe the machine' was wt in
tine running conditio!," and early yesterday mornirtg the major de
cided to make ttf Start, 'd picked Sergeant Gray as his passengfcr
and mechanician.. .
W hen, be flew over NVaikiki he was up about riOOOeet. Kesi--lents
have become so accustomed to seeing and hearing the' machine
ovr their heads almost daily, that only a few people observed the
heuplane ljeqornaniere speck in the sky and then disappear al
together as it kept cm steadily toward Molokai.
No two men evcr made the trip from Honolulu to Lahaina in
such quick time. A message was received here yesterday afternoon
iiv relatives in which he announced he had reached Maui safelv. The
niess.ne was dated at Wailuku
1 clock.
Major ( lark ocpwted to make Lahaina in about an hour .and a
half, fur, although' he had his fast 100-miles-ier-hour machine, he did
:,ut expect to let it out for its full speed capacity.

Question of Representation In
House and Senate
Again Raised
Is Believed His Commission Will
Arrive Some Time After
the Twentieth
Reapportionment of the senate and of
the house of representatives in accord
ance with tin provisions of the Organ
ic Act of the Territory is again being
urged and may be made one uf the im
portant measures of the forthcoming
Miecial session of the legislature Which
is to open next Tuesday.
It in now generally accepted that the
outgoing administration will remain In
power through the specirl session. No
further word was received yesterday
or last night from Washington by Gov
ernor McCarthy and It la now almost
certain that his commission and In
structions about qualifying have been
moiled from Washington.
Tun of Mails
The first boat on which the commis
sion cun arnve will reach port here,
ftnhday. May III, the day following that
On Which it is planned to adjourn the'
special session. If there has been any
delay at Washington about issuing the.
commission, it may not reach Honolulu
until Tuesday May 21 or Thursday,
May 2.1. It is unlikely that it ar
rival will be delayed beyond tho last
named date nnd this means that Gov
ernor McCarthy wit! probably assume
office some time before May 23.
One reason why the question of reap
portionment has ijcen brought up affaia
at this time is that it ha been' held
that according to the atrict letter of
the law it is alt ogrthor 'possible that the
legislature tis constituted at present
is illegal and on this ground aay of Ha
nets may be questioned. On the aub
Ject of reapportionment the Organio
Ar-t Is specific.
Law ia Specific
"The legislature," the act aaya,
"at its first regular session after the
census enumeration shall be aaeertaia
ed, and from time to time thereafter,
shall reapportion the membership In
the senate an d house of representatives
among the senatorial and representa
tive districts on the basis of popula
tion in eacli of said district who are
ritizena of the Territory. "
This act has boon effective all Of
seventeen years, since 1IKH) when the
Organic Act wns first passed by con
gress. The provision of the act on
the question of reapportionment ha
been ignored by one session of the leg
islature after another and itii now be
lieved that 'unless the legtatatur acts,
voluntarily in the matter, and ooa, re
apportionment will;be thrust upon the
Territory by act bY cqngress fn the
shnH? of an amendment to the Organic
Act. ;
Since the act was -passed tlik popula
tion of the Territory has Ijeen steadily
leaning and the balk of the Increase
has come to the Island of Oohn wi(,
the result that the present representa
tion of the various counties has grow'aTI1
whollv out of proportion.
All Efforts Tall
I'lf'irts in the past sessions to carry
out the provision of the Orgnnie Act
have met with defdat When the repre
sentation of the other Islands have com
bine. I against the Oahu re presentation.
In I ormer sessions legislative ." trad
ers'' have successfully defeated every
attempt to bring about the change.
As constituted at present the repre
senntion in the senate b.V counties ia
as t'ullows: Oahu, six; Ha wuii, four:
Mani. three, aud Kauai, two. In the
house tho ; representation is: Oaho,
lourth and fifth districts, si each;
llavvaii. first and aocond districts, four
a . I . : Maui, 'third district, six; aud
Kauai, sixth district, ' fertir.
How out Of proportion this is may he
seen w lieu the population of the Is
lands is taken into account. This is:
iiahu. llOioOO; Hawaii. 65,000; Mani,
.tii.iioii and Kauai, 20,000.
In former years questions concerning
the legality of the acta of the legisla
ture as constituted at present have
been seriously advanced and with the
population constantly growing the
basis for this contention, has been
growing stronger.
Governor' Vlewa
(iovernor McCarthy said yesterday
that as a senator at the 1107 session
of the legislature he introdueod k bill
providing that -a reapportionment bo
made in accordance with the Organic
Act. It was defeated as were subse
quent efforts to effect reapportionment.
' ' I feel as strongly about it now aa
1 did then," (iovernor McCarthy said
yesterday, but be ebcproHaed the view
that little chance exists tliut the legis
lature will voluntarily make the change.
it the project were given the np
poii of legislators from aome of the
other Islands," he 'fcaid, "it eould
probably be curried into effect. There
is uo doubt about the law. The Or
ganic Act is specific and directs that
reapportionment should be wade and
n n oh a opinion iathnt it should be
mud.-. Hut nothing has been done in
past senNioa and I hardly think it like
l Hint tine chauce exists of action at
the e. lining special session.
"The only wny that seems open to
.-. impel renpp.irtionuient lieie is to
htm- t he natter taken care ot in i on
ores- b mi umvndineut to the Organic
.t. milking A reapportionment on the
