"This is the first time I have been fooled," said Post-master General Oat last evening in speaking of the non appearance of the Pacific Mail S. S. Peru on schedule time. Had the Peru arrived yesterday she would have taken the mail to San Francisco ahead of the Miowera. As it is now, it is a case of bad luck and while the con sequences of delay will not be dangerously grave, there will be re sultant not a little inconvenience. Captain Nichols of the U. S. Gun boat Bennington sent word yesterday that he expected to leave here with his vessel immediately upon the ar rival of the U. S. S. Mohican, expected hourly and that he would be pleased to carry forward a mail. Mr. Oat thanked the commander of the Gun boat and accepted the offer, condi tioned on the further delay of the S. S. Peru. Mr. Oat found that he had on hand last evening about twenty- live bags of papers and between 10,000 and 12,000 letters. This big lot in cludes the mail of the Boys in Blue. All mail marked "Miowera" was sent by the steamer for Vancouver. A great many people held back their letters till the Canadian boat had gone, wish ing to use the Peru. The trouble that the Honolulu mer chants have is that their orders for goods to arrive here the latter part of the month are still in the PostofIice and will remain there till the Peru or Mohican happen along. To catch the next steamer bad with the goods the orders should be in San Francisco by the 21st. A number of business men interviewed yesterday said that while there might be experienced some an noyance, there could be nothing like a famine. The largest houses all have on hand stocks of staples that will last several months. A few sailing vessels are on the way and will re- ieve the shortage in some lines. Hay and grain will feel the effects of scarcity first. Feed for stock has been on the up-grade as to price for some months. It was expected that by the ime the mail now in the PostofIice ,iere had reached San Francisco hay and grain from the mountain States and from the northwest would be in San Francisco for immediate ship ment. Mail for British uoiumma, Canada and the northwestern States went on by the Miowera and the Seattle, Portland and Vancouver boats will bring quantities of goods in due time. There was mention yesterday of a proposal to dispatch the Wilder S. S. Co. Claudine, to San Francisco with mail and to return with a cargo of freight of urgent character. Up to a late hour last night there was nothing tangible of the enterprise. Wilder's had not been called upon with a busi ness talk. It is more than likely that the Chamber of Commerce would take the lead in such a matter and the plan has not yet been brought before that body. In 1S93 the Claudine was sent to the coast with the Annexation commissioners at a charter price of $100 a day. When the Miowera re fused to take mail from here during the cholera visitation in ISO." it was proposed to again dispatch the Clau dine and a meeting of the Chamber of Commerce was held and the pro ject discussed. It was finally abandon ed. At that time the Wilder people stated that they would ask more for the steamer than they had receive! in ISC'3. as the first charter had not pal.. Should the Claudine he sent at this time she would have a number of passengers. A score or more of people perhaps half a hundred are waiting for some chance for a steamer trip to the coast. Some of the travel ers detained hro have important busi ness abroad. ler Red (.'ro.s Fund. The Inter-Ishind Steam Navigation c oni puny lias arranged a neat plan for the profit of the Red Cross So- vjeiy Fund, ami Mrs. S. M. Bailou who is at the head of the Entertain ment Committee, has taken the mat ter in hand. Karly in the campaign for the reception and entertainment o the Boy.s in Blue, the Inter-Islanc Company offered to the Committee of 100 the use of a steamer or steamers for the purpose of traveling with both incoming and outgoing boats. The company continues Indefinitely this concession, without any profit lo itself. 15ut hereafter, the Red Cross Society will handle tickets for the ex cursion steamers. Passage will be free to the band and to authorized persons. Everyone else must pay the small fee of four bits. The half dol lar pieces will go into the treasury of the Red Cross Societv direct. LABRADOR CREW Tlic Japanese Cook Tells His Story in Court. .-"The trial began before Judge Stan ley yesterday of the captain and crew of the British schooner Eabrador. The prisoners are charged with smug gling intothe country the opium found on Kahoolawe. Inspector Beokwith, of the customs, was the first witness. Then came the Japanese cook -who. has turned state's evidence. The Jap anese was on the stand for a couple of hours and repeated in full and the same as before the story given to Sheriff Baldwin and C. A. Doyle. Paul Neumann, of counsel for defense, ob jected to Mr. Doyle as interpreter on account of Mr. Doyle's connection with the police department as detective and; arresting officer. The objection was overruled. Among those in Court dur ing the hearing were Collector-Genera!" MeStocker, British Commissioner Ken ny and a secretary from the Japanese legation. The representative of the Japanese Minister took a rather ac tive interest- in the hearing and up on an opportunity being presented, questioned the chief witness at 'length. The cook went into close detail in tell ing his story. He said that after sail ing three days the schooner stopped for water at a place where there was a red lighthouse and also some red men called Siwashes. The cook told of repainting the schooner at sea. Marshal Brown is not up on Indian lore and had to have Siwash translat ed. The Japanese said he shipped for a sealing cruise to Alaska. Mr. Kenny speaks Japanese and listened careful ly to the testimony of the cook. 1 ne hearing mav be concluded today. mm The Colonel is Confident. Col. J. II. Fisher, commanding the First Regiment, N. G. II., is one of the men positive that annexation is close at hand. In a circular letter to the captains of the companies of the Regi ment, Col. Fisher prefaces with the intimation that the command is likely soon to be called into active service. The anticipation appears to be that when annexation takes place the ser vices of the Regiment will be tendered for campaigning in the Philippines. Capt. Kiii. Capt. Jas. A. King, Minister of the Interior; is now ordered to remain at his home here and in a dark room. This is on account of an ailing eye. t was the trouble with the eye that brought the Minister back from the Volcano House, where he was rapid ly regaining his health. In sight of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa and on the brink of Kilauea he had so far progressed that he was able to sleep almost full allowance. Salvation Army. The Salvation Army had a most en thusiastic meeting on the corner of Fort and Hotel streets last evening. There was a very large turnout of members with Colonel Evans in com mand. Prof. Theo. Richards of Ka mehameha was in the procession on the march from the hall to the usual meeting p'.ace and return. During the meeting on the street corner. J'ro Richards addressed a few worus to the assembled audience. A GENERAL INVITATION. The millinery displayed at L,. B Kerr's Queen street store is a sight long to be remembered.

One Hundred and First Day, June 13. Notification was received from the House of the passage of the bill cre ating a marine park ori the east side of the arbor. The first of the series of reports on examination of the books of various departments came in from the Finance Committee. The report received was on the Marshal's office and treated the subject exhaustively, going into the details of the books of the Marshal's office and of the Jail, a careful exam ination of which had been made by an expert. Several features of the meth ods of keeping books and the balanc ing of cash accounts were condemned by the expert. The committee stated that the changes had been made and that the accounts of the present period would be kept differently. The com mittee went at some length into the perquisite system in vogue in the Mar shal's office. Some time in March the committee asked the Attorney Gen eral for information on the subject, and he in turn asked the Marshal, who replied quoting various sections of law as authority for retaining a portion of the revenues of the office. During the last period the committee reported, something like $5,800 was re ceived in the Marshal's office as per quisites. One of the sources has been the fees for sealing weights and mea sures. A bill passed by the Senate several days since directs the payment of these fees in the treasury as Gov ernment realization. The report was istened to with interest. It was re eived and placed on file to be consid ered later. A preliminary report was also made on the Finance Department. The com mittee found that there was $29,000 in he treasury under an act of 1SG4 which provided that moneys received from sale of land should be used either to purcase other lands or be retained as a sinking fund for the payment of bonds due. The committee recommended that it be so applied. Notice was received that bills had been presented to the President for his signature relating to the marine park, Heiaus and Puuhonuas and homestead acts. There was some discussion on the bill making regulation as to in which circuits different civil cases shall be brought. The various inconveniences to which litigants are subjected by the press of business in the First Circuit Court were mentioned. The bill as passed at second reading specifies were cases shall be tried. Third read ing was set for Tuesday. The bill passed second reading reg ulating the requirements for persons eligible to be employed by the Gov ernment. Several questions asked by Senator Brown of Minister Damon on th sub ject of assessment of taxes by the Board of Equalization were referred to that official. At 11:20 o'clock the Senate adjourn ed. HOUSE. Heps. Isnberg and McCandle'vs spoke in favor of paying hack the fines and costb of certain men who had been active in the revolution of 1893. Rep. Achi wanted half the money paid. A motion of indefinitely post pone the matter was carried. The appropriation bill was again taken up for consideration. The claims of Hoffschlaeger & Co. and Lovejoy &. Co. were considered with the majority and minority reports of the committee. The report of the ma REPORT I disallowing the claim, was adopted. Roads and bridges. Honolulu. S12rt- 000.

The special committee to whom was referred the consideration of items "Pay of Forester" and "Pay of Labor ers," present their report, in part, as follows: "Your committee, after careful con sideration of the necessity existing for the employment of a forester have come to the conclusion that it would be far better to obtain the services of an expert at once, rather than to experiment with unknown and untried people. "In a compilation published by W. M. Giffard, Esq., for the Planters As sociation there appears a statement which touches upon this subject and to the effect that, 'It certainly will not' pay to proceed by the 'rule of thumb' or at least upon such acquaint ance with the subject of Forestry as could be acquired by study of publica tions relative to the science as pro duced by the Governments of other countries. Such person would have to learn their 'business at the expense of this country it being impossible but that -many very expensive mistakes would be committed by them. Prof. Furnow, Chief of the Bureau of For estry, U. S. Department of Agricul ture, says: 'Without forest manage ment no national water Taanageroent is possible.' Forestry is like all other professions, proficiency in it does not and cannot come by intuition. It in volves not only questions to be dealt with by the scientific arboriculturist but others of a purely economic char acter the knowledge of which can only be acquired by fdudy under those whose experience has been large and varied. "In view of the foregoing presen tation your committee considers that they can well recommend the employ ment of an expert forester. "In connection with the employment of an expert forester or arboriculturist, your committee would recommend that an item 'Pay of Expert Forester, $1,500,' be inserted in the appropria tion bill and 'Pay of Chief of Forestry, 2 years, $1,800,' be inserted in the ap propriation bill. "With regard to the items relating to 'Forester at Makiki, Island of Oahu,' your committee recommend that the sum of $1,800 be appropriated as sal ary therefor. "Pay of laborers, nursery, $1,080. "Pay of laborers, Makiki, $10,800. 'Respectfully submitted, "PAUL R. ISENBERG." "I agree with the foregoing excerpt ing in the going ahead with the re foresting in Nuuanu Valley which I consider should await the examina tion and report of an expert. "W. F. POGUE." "I agree in the main with the gen eral proposition that the Government should fully enter into the consider ation of forest preservation and the problems involved, but I do not con- (Contlnued on Page 2.)
