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

There is no possibility that the officers
of the organizations named did not know
of the frauds and forgeries enumerated
above, and yet they have certified to the
genuineness and correctness of each in
dividual page, and have even taken oath
before a Notary Public certifying thereto,
and secured the certificate of the United ! TT 1 1 "D T . .t-

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

1. 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.

. 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

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.
Hamilton, Prince David, Sam Johnson,
Sam Woods and Vida made a splendid
forward line.

did .satisfactory work. The experts re
marked on the "passing" of Rev. Mr.

visitors. For the home team Captain

Woods scored. Goal was kicked from
