UUIUUI 1 in 1 I FOUNDRY TO MOVE The -Iron Wort to Have Six Acres Id Kaiaak AH EXTENSION OF PLANT May Have Marine Railway New Large Buildings Something About Heavy Operations. The city district which has so long con tained the site of the Honolulu Iron Works will soon be minus the smoke from the furnaces, the reports of the hot blast ings, the hum of the machinery and the wild clanging of the hammers. This great industrial plant of the mid-Pacific is to be moved. Negotiations for new land have been under way for several weeks. Mr. Swanzy, the vice-president of the company, said last evening that the trans action would in all likelihood be closed today. Further than this he would not proceed when asked for information. It is learned that the Honolulu Iron Works Company has secured from the B. P. Bishop Estate six acres of land in Kakaako on a long lease said to be fifty years. It is understood that the company will secure the prize it has so long covet eduse of harbor front, with the priv ilege of having its own marine railway and coffer dam on the premises. The Bishop Estate land at deep water is mau- ka immediately of the Healani boat house. The location chosen is in every way admir ably adapted to the uses of the Iron Works Company. It offers the advantage of the most economical handling of the enormous amount of shipping repair trade that has grown up during the past few- years and that is increasing constantly. Another great feature for the company will be that its great cargoes of material can be landed at the storage yards. This alone will save thousands of dollars an nually. The Iron Works Company is one of the best patrons the drayage concerns have. Every effort had been made by the Iron Works people to use the small space at the old stand. But the business has sim ply extended beyond the proportions of the place. In Kakaako there will be built large structures after the style experience has proven will be best suited to the ex act work of the company. I.i providing these buildings there will be expended lit erally fortunes in material and labor. An army of men will be employed in con struction work. It is said to be the set tled purpose to move to the new place without unnecessary delay. For a long time the Iron Works people have been cramped at the present compound. From time to time small bits of ground have been secured from adjoining possessions and within a very few months new build ings of considerable size have been add ed. This new turn of the Iron Works will have a marked effect in several direc tions in Honolulu. It is anticipated that a new residence district will appear. Thu force of men will be increased. More work will come, as it will be advertised all over the world that the largest ships afloat can be repaired in Honolulu. In all likelihood the plant will be so extend ed in the new location that vessels of considerable size can be built right in Honolulu. Freight from the East will be as cheap as San Francisco concerns en joy. As was pointed out by Theo. H. Davieu in his address recently at the annual din ner of the Iron Works employes, the es tablishment is largely a local concern. Mr. Davies is the president, F. M. Swanzy is vice-president. Other local stockhold ers are W. G. Irwin, John F. Hackfeld and Castle & Cooke. The three widow ladies living abroad mentioned by Mr. Davies in his speech as owning stock in the concern are Mrs. Greene, Mrs. Janion and Mrs. Perry. What was probably the largest, heaviest and most interesting casting made at the Honolulu Iron Works this year, was drawn yesterday. Every man about the place was anxious concerning the job. Spectators still more nervous about the casting were officials of the Wilder Steam ship Company. The great weight ta.ken from the mold w-hich has been a full month in preparation was a piece of ma chinery for the steamer Kinau, the larg est, finest and fastest boat of the Wilder fleet of inter-island packets. Chief En gineer Johnson discovered the serious break in the high pressure cylinder while the vessel was alongside. Had the Kinau been at sea there would have been not a little trouble in running her with the low pressure cylinder alone. It might be explained that high and low pressure cylinders mean the double expansion sys tem. The steam is used twice. Its ini tial force is applied from the high (44- inch) and its secondary force from the low (24-inch) pressure cylinder, with 36- inch stroke. Mr. Johnson who has charge of all the machinery for the company and who for the past two years has been most of the time at the Coast overlooking the construction of new steamers, found the break in the cylinder in the regular course of inspection. The flaw was more a natural wear than anything else. The piece had been in use fifteen years. Tha contract for casting a new cylinder was given without delay to the Iron Works Company from figures made by Manager Hedeman and head Accountant Kennedy. Since the order was accepted the Iron Works Company has kept a number of its most skillful men on tie job night and day. The men take the keenest interest in an affair of this sort. The critical climax comes on the day of casting. If a single mold is placed wrong, if the stream from the cupalo is too hot or too cold, if there is a sudden turn of the weather, if there is the most trifling carelessness anywhere, the entire work, involving sev eral thousand dolhys, may be a total failure. This big casting looked all right yesterday and the men who had made it a part of their lives for four weeks were confident that it would prove successful. Besides the manager and his immediate lieutenants, the heads of .three depart ments at the Iron Works are important men, with great responsibility, in a mat ter of this character. First the patterns are made. In this room, H. C. Reid is the veteran foreman. His establishment is a line art carpenter shop and wood working mill. He and his men make, from blueprints, the castings for the molds. California redwood is the favored material. Thos. Smith is the chief of the molders. Everyone knows that the Iron Works Company imports a lot of sand for molding. The large majority of people are under the impression that when a pattern is ready, this sand, perhaps slightly moistered, is packed around the form, that then the form is withdrawn and the molten metal poured in. Well, the sand is only a portion of the mold composition. Every, year the Iron Works Company uses tons of flour and thousands of gallons of molasses to mix with the imported sands for molding. Once made the molds are baked in a huge oven and then faced with plumbago. They are then almost like iron. Mr. Smith looks after all this, and much more. This new high pressure cylinder will weigh out in the neighborhood of four tons. To be certain of enough metal, with several technical allowances, the head molder had fiy- ton? of iron melted up for the run. It was picked scrap, too. Qld castings are smashed up down there in rather a primitive wray. They are, laid out under a tripod derrick and a massive weight is hauled up by steam and dropped on them. A casting like the high pressure cylinder is quite open and cools rapidly in comparison to the "setting" of a roller, for instance. After the casting is released by the chief molder it goes to the head man of the machine shops, Mr. Cushing harn, in this instance. He must see that the trimming and finishing are properly done. On a large piece like the cylinder twenty-five or thirty men are employed under the direction of the master mechan ic for a couple of days. When a job like this is completed, it is a handsome thing to look upon new and shining, a tribute to the skill of a whole lot of trained and careful men who take the greatest pride in their work. When the cylinder is de livered to the Wilder Company, Engineer Johnson places it in the Kinau. This part will be done in quite a rush, for the pre sent is the busy season with the company in the transportation line and the vacation of the Kinau means a lot of idle money a considerable loss. There are busier times at the Iron Works here these days than even on any of the big plantations with grinding in full blast. Twenty-five new men came to the Works by the Moana yesterday, but there will be no stoppage of overtime operations. Men come from the Coast readny, leaving certain positions up there, because the wages are better and the hours shorter here. A steamship man who was at the Works yesterday while the Advertiser reporter was making a visit said that it was be coming plainer every day that it would be necessary for the Works to complete its marine repair department. "This place is a station in ocean business," said he, "and must be equipped to do the work. Here they have work for the Klondike steamer. That ship would have drifted about on the Pacific for a month or six weeks unless it was able to get its work done here. The Honolulu Iron Works has saved those people from mak ing a failure of the voyage. The same thing has happened a dozen times in a few years." One of the gentlemen heavily interested in the Works hinted that the marine re pair department was to be enlarged. Work is piled everywhere about- the Founary. In the boiler making annex men are using from a recently arrived shipment or order of 12,030 tons of steel plate. Nearly all of this is going into water pipe for various plantations. Five teams have been at work for some time hauling this material from the wharves. The steel was shipped from New York to Panama, thence to San Francisco, then down here in the sugar and other packets. Besides the rush or emergency work on the Klondike steamer, the Iron Works people are making some pieces of engine for the local Electric Light Works. Probably half a hundred men are labor ing in various ways on rollers for Oahu and Lahaina plantations. It's a grand thing to drop into the Iron Works once in awhile and see how men use steam and master metal. THAT "PETITION " Ssnt to f asMfliM Bj Hawaii fins Is Unfler Fire. SIGNATURES WERE EXAMINED By L. A. Thurston Who Says Some of Them Are Forgeries His Analysis. The Hawaiian anti-annexation peti tion of 20,000 odd names, .has been ex amined in Washington. The analysis of the petition by L. A. Thurston is as follows: The petition consists of 5oG pages, of which 30S pages conain what purport to be male signatures; and. 248 pages, female signatures. The number of male signatures purports to be 10,378; the number of female sig natures purports to be 10,891; making the total number of signatures 21,269. The petition contains a column in which opposite each name, the age of each petitioner purports to be written. The male petition contains a nummary iu which it is stated that the adult signers number 8,116; and the minors between the ages of 14 and 20 years, 2,262, making the total of 10,378 males. The female peti tion contains no summary of adults and minors, but examination thereof shows that there purport to be, adults 8,213; un der 20 years of age, 2,678. The face of the petition therefore shows that there are: male adults, 8,116; women adults, 8,215; total adults,. 16,331; male minors, 2,262; female minors, 2,676; total minors, 4,93S. :It thus appears, even from the face of the petition, that 23 per cent, of the petitioners are .minors. There is strong reason to believe that a much larger number of the petitioners are minors, for reasons hereinafter stated. REASONS FOR DISCREDITING THE PETITION. The following facts, tending to discredit both the genuineness and the good faith of the petition, appear upon its face. The certificate or summary accom panying the male petition states that the minors are between 14 and 20 years of age. The petition shows on its face that there are 3T0 male petitioners, and 327 female petitioners, or 677 in all, under 14 years of age, of whom 7 boys and 6 girls are only two years of age. The page of the petition and number of each male peti tioner under 14 is given above. There is strong reason to believe that the number of minors under 14 is much greater than that given above, by reason of the fact that several hundred fraudulent changes in the ages of petitioners is apparent on the face of the petition, particulars of which are hereinafter given. The number above enumerated is simply that appearing on the face of the petition. Second fact tenduog" to discredit the peti tion. The ages of 52 of the male peti tioners, and 228 of the female petitioners, making 278 in all, have been fraudulently changed from a lower to a higher figure. The object of these changes is manifest ly to try and make the face of the petition comply with the statement contained therein that the minors are over 14; and second, to give an appearance of greater responsibility and weight to the petition than it would have if so many young children appeared to be signers. The page of the petition and number of each male signature which has been fraudulently changed, is given in Table 2, hereto attached. The page of the petition and number of each female Signature, the age opposite which has been fraudulently changed ia given in Table 3, hereto attached. There are a great number of other ages which appear to have been tampered with, but only those are enumerated above which have plainly been fraudulently changed. Third fact tending to discredit the peti tion. The signatures of over 1,400, or near ly 10 per cent of the adult petitioners are not original, but forgeries. There are an immense number of other signatures that appear to be forgeries, but only those plainly appearing to be so are enumerated above. The pages of the petition and numbers of each of the signatures which are not original are enumerated, as to the male signatures, in Table 4; and as to the female signatures, in Table 5, hereto at tached. The following are some of the most glaring instances of wholesale incorpora tion of signatures all in one handwriting. On page 95 of the male petition, 10 signa tures, Nos. 22 to 40, as are all in the same handwriting. On page 161 of the male petition, IS signatures, .Nos. 33 to 50 are all in the same handwriting. On page 1G3 of the male petition, 7 signatures, Nos. 9 to 15, are in one "handwriting; 9 signatures, Nos. 17 to 25 are in one hand writing, and 14 signatures, Nos. 32 to 45 are in one handwriting. On page 164 of the male petition, 46 signatures, Nos. 5 to 50, are all in one handwriting. On page 1k of the male petition, 20 signatures. Nos. CO to 49 are in the same handwrit ing. On page 212 of the male petition, 20 signatures, Nos. 29 to 4S are in the same handwriting. On page 255 of the male pe tition, 12 signatures, all there are on the page, are in the handwriting of Edward K. Lilikalani. All of the signatures on page 8 of the women's petition, 16 in ruitfare also in this man's handwriting. Qja page 77 of the women's petition, 16 s'gnatures, No?. 34 to 49, are la the s.uue handwriting (not Lilikalanl's; but a number of the names signed by Lilikalani on page 8 are written again by some one else, on page 77.) A strong side light is thrown upon the petition as a whole by the fact that IJli kalani' is an Intimate personal adherent of the late reigning family, a prominent office holder and member of the Legisla ture under the Monarchy, and is now an implacable Royalist and advocate of re storation of the Monarchy. In addition to signing his own and all other names on the two pages above in dicated, he attests his enthusiasm by, again signing his own name on pages C3 and 255 of the male petition. I am per sonally and intimately acquainted with Lilikalanl's handwriting. Mr. John Ross also signs his name on page 307, and again on page 30S. On page 260 of the male petition, 23 signatures, Nos. 2. to 27 are In the same handwriting. On page 294 of the male petition, 23 signatures, Nos. 2 to 24 are In the same handwriting. On page S of the female petition, all of the 48 signa tures and the age, are in the same hand- r a. . - . 1 A I wrnung. kjji page a oi me lemaitj men tion, all of the 16 signatures are In the same handwriting. On page 12 of the women's petition, 44 of the H signatures are in the same handwriting. All the signatures on pages 108, 109 and 111 of the women's petition, 126 in all, are in the same handwriting. All of the signatures (except 13 on page 120) on pages 116, 120,' 121 and 132 of the female petition, 178 in all, are in the same handwriting. On page 240 of the women's petitionee. K. Pa, a man, has signed all the names from Nos. 6 to 36, 31 In all. His own signature appears as No. 1 on page 134 of the men's petition. All the numbering: of signatures on pages 130, 131 and 132 of the men's petition, is in his handwriting. The pages of the petition and numbers of the signatures of male petitioners, whicn do not appear to be original signatures are given in Table 4, and of females in Table 5, hereto attached. Fourth fact tending to discredit the petition. The petition purports to give the ages, on whole pages of the petition, are filled in, all in the same handwriting,, and manifestly without attempt on the part of the enumerator to insert the real age of the petitioners, the ages all ending in even, or round numbers. The following examples will suffice to demonstrate that no reliance can be placed on the correct ness of tho nirps ir1vMi On nairo 75 nf the male petition, signatures Nos. 30 to 49 inclusive, have set opposite them, all in one handwriting, the following, as their respective ages, 30, 20, 30, 35, 48, 42, 45, 20, 48, 45, 42, 30, 40, 60, 30, 40, 60 years. On pages 78 the ages set opposite signatures, Nos. 9 to 22, inclusive, all in the same handwriting, are 45, 40, 20, 30, 40, 35, 40, 45, 30, 50, 55, 40, CO, 43 years. There are scores of other Instances of ages all in one handwriting manifestly inserted by a different person and at a different time ' from the signatures. Again, the ages of 27S certainly, and probably many more petitioners have been fraudulently changed. The ages of peti tioners are not ordinarily an essential part of a petition; but having in this case been made a part, frauds in connection affect the bona fides of the whole peti tion. Fifth fact tending to discredit the peti tion. Each and every page of the male petition is countersigned with the original signatures of Enoch Johnson, secretary,' and James K. Kaulia, president of the "Hawaiian Patriotic League" and each page of the female petition is counter signed with the original signatures of Mrs. Lllia Aholo, secretary and Mrs. K. Campbell, president of the "Women's Patriotic League." These four people are all intelligent. Johnson and Kaulia are members of the bar of the Supreme Court of Hawaii. Kaulia is now chairman of the Royalist delegation in Washington, and: toernnnallv brought the petition from Honolulu.,!? 1 y (Continued on Page 2.)
