' W HI II I: lit IJ'- u1: WJJ ' wMWMm mm THE HOLLAND SUBMARINE TORPEDO BOAT. The submarine boat built by Inventor Jcsepb P. Holland is now ready for war purposes. In approaching an enemy's battleship the Holland, is kept just below the surface until vilhin raiie of her guns. Then the boat descends twenty or thirty feet and moves forward to within a mile of the enemy, when it coines to the Surface for a moment. During that moment the operator by use of the steering gear points his boat directly at the battleship, thus aiming the bow gun. and at a signal from him the gun is discharged, throwing a dyna mite shell at the enemy. Before the shot can be effectively ictnnied the operator releases the valves which sink the Holland out of the way of the guns of the battleship. Approach ing broadside of the battleship and remaining below the surface, the Holland projects a Whitehead torpedo from its second bow tube. Passing under the ship, it rises to the surface on the other side and a shell from the stern gun is discharged at the enemy. s . A R9 W Jl i Ygu are just right they are sharp.

A summary of the facts which appear upon the face of the male petition, in consistent with its genuineness and bona fides, which must have been known to Kaulla and Johnson vhen they certified it, are as follows: 1. The petition certifies that the minor petitioners are between 14 and 20 years of age. The .male petition shows on its face that out of a total of 30S pages, 105 pages, or more than one-third, contain the names of 350 minors ranging from 2 to 13 years of age. 2. That on 31 pages of the male peti tion, the ages of 53 petitioner! who are under 14, have been fraudulently changed to 14 or upwards. 3. That on IS pages, i'Z persons have signed 308 signatures as high as 46 signa tures on one page being in the same handwriting (Page 164, male petition.) 4. In a great number of instances, the ages are all in the sam handwriting and in round numbers only. The signatures of the boys, 2 and 3 o. WILSON & WHITEHOUSE. SOLE LICENSEES FOR THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS.

The female petition shows on its face that 327 of the minors are under 14 years of age. 2. There is no separate certificate on the female petition that minors are over 14, but the common management of the two petitions is evidenced by the fact that on 73 pages of the female petition, the ages of 228 petitioners who are under 14 years, have been fraudulently changed to 14 or upwards. 5. On 42 pages, 43 persons have signed 1,104 names; as high as 126 signatures in one case and 17S in another being all in the same handwriting; and in one In stance, 16 female names (page 8) and in another (page 240) are in the handwritings of well known men. 4. In a great number of instances the ages are all in the same handwriting, and in round numbers. 5. The signatures of the 2 and 3 year old girls are in good round handwriting, impossible to be genuine. Each and every page indicated above is countersigned by Mrs. Aholo and Mrs. Campbell. . In conclusion I desire to make some explanation concerning: the getting up and signings of petitinos in Hawaii. It is common knowledge there, that even to a greater degree than in this country, there is little feeling of responsibility at tached to signing a petition. Among the native Hawaiians especially, the feeling is tht it is rather an honor to see one's name attached to a petition and that it would be unfriendly to refuse to sign' a petition am act which costs nothin For example, the petition in question was. I am credibly informed, taken to many prominent supporters of annexation and they were requested to sign it simply to show that there was no hard feeling in the matter. Subscription papers were also passed around to raise money to send the Royalist delegation now in Washington, and leading annexationists asked to sub scribe thereto. As an example of the irresponsible signing of petitions, which have come to my personal knowledge, was a member of the Hawaiian Legis lature in 1SSC, and noticing a native mem ber sitting at my side writing at the top of a document which contained a number of signatures. I asked him what he was doing? He replied that he was preparing a peti tion in support of a bill which he had introduced. I said, "Why you don't mean to say that you get youn petition signed first, and write in the heading after wards, do you?" "Why certainly I do," he replied. "Its too much bother to send clear to my dis trict to get a petition, so I had a lot of blank sheets signed up in advance, and every time I want a petition to back up one of my measures, I fill in a heading on one of these sheets." He thereupon pulled open the drawer of his desk and showed me 20 or 30 sheets all signed in blank with a space at the top in which to insert the object of the petition. Another member of the Hawaiian Legis lature once made a wager that within a ALL LEATHER. s . That is the one essential point that should be considered in buying VALI SES AND The line gives the score of the first Rugby football game to be played in these Islands. The match was witness ed by a crowd of 400 at the old Recrea ition grounds in Makiki yesterday after noon. While it was a friendly contest, it was fa'st and furious from start to fin ish, abounding In quick work and bril liant mass or combination and individ ual plays. There was not a single pro test or dispute. It was a great victory for the town boys and ithe public will be all the more anxious now to see the charity game, scheduled for Saturday afternoon. Six of the Klondikers (off the S. S. Cape Otway) played for the Maori team against all England but a few years ago and of course showed rue form yeisterday. For real practice, the game of yesterday with the travel' ers was worth a whole season of hard work at .home to the local XV. The Klondikera were delighted to have the opportunity of a game on their journey. Theye were under the disadvantage of lack of training, but not a man of the lot weakened during either of the hal ves of 25 minutes each. The Klondik ers were immensely pleased with, the treatment accorded them by the Hono lulu boys and they declare that not a town in the world three times the size of Honolulu can show so good a Rugby iteam. Captain Mackintosh and Prince Cupid made the feature plays of the day. In scoring they maae magmnceiiL iuu and were enthusiastically applauded.
