LOWRTE Manes' HERE is a bare possibility that the , went over with a mighty splash. The TP Iold Government dredger now ly ing idle and unprotected in the harbor at the mouth of Nuuanu stream, may be secured by Clark & Henry, dredging contractors of Stockton, Cal ifornia, to dredge out the bar at Pearl Harbor. Clark & Henry have just been awarded the contract for this work, which amounts, in round numbers, to about $100,000, from the Government, to which will be added a bonus from the plantations around Pearl Harbor of $26,000. The latter is conditioned upon the work being thoroughly satisfactory to the Government. The contract was awarded for 44' cents per cubic yord. Captain Parker, who is in charge of the Oahu Railway dredger, put in a bid for Mr. Dillingham of 45 cents per yard. Representatives of the successful bid ders are expected on the next mail steamer to go over the harbor entrance. It is not known what dredging plant they will use. The Oahu Railway dredger would have been used by Captain Parker had he been successful, but he will now de vote his entire time to completing the dredging around the Oahu Railway wharves. Captain Parker states that the probabilities are that the Govern ment .dredger will be sought by harbor is about twenty-four feet deep at this point, and the heavy wagon took the horse under. He arose once and went down again. The Japanese dived into ihe water and endeavored to rescue his animal. He called to a Ha- I waiian to assist him, telling him he would give him $8 if he would pull the horse and wagon put of the water to the wharf. The native got some lines and a hook down and managed to cat.:h the latter in the harness. The horse was still alive when brought to the surface but died before reaching the wharf. The wagon was also hauled back to terra firma. make it convenient for the handling to all vessels of the Navy staying in this port their supplies. It is intended to make of the Naval Station reservation a waterfront park. It is also probable that an addition to the present office, or an entirely new office will be built, the present one being too small. There is an appropriation of $3,000 for office buildings for this station. The Naval Station has already assumed a pleas- The Japanese then refused to pay the waterfront.

The Japanese said ne had bargained for the man to div;, for which he was to give him $8. The man did not dive but only threw line3 end a hook down, and therefore he had not done as agreed upon. Therefore, ar gued the Japanese, he was not entitled to anything. The Deputy Sheriff per suaded the Japanese that in order to save himself a whole lot of trouble he had better pay it. It then developed the Japanese had no money, but a friend loaned him the $8 at 50 per cent interest for a week. True Story of the Empire. F. F.

Raced Frem Honolulu. A very interesting if not exciting ocean race was finished yesterday. Four of the vessels made port so nearly together that the captains have decided to call the contest a draw. The ships Marion Chilcott and George Curtis sailed from Honolulu on June 26. The same day the bark Santiago left Hilo for this port, and the schooner William oBwden left Honolulu for Pu get Sound. Early yesterday morning the Chilcott passed in, and a few hours later she was followed by the Curtis and the Santiago. These vessels had barely their anchors down before the Bowden was reported passing Neah Bay. The passage of twenty-three days is a long one, but none of the captains are grumbling, when they consider that one vessel was as slow as the other. The Marion Chilcott is now owned in San Francisco. She was formerly the British ship Kilbrannan, and was wrecked in Puget Sound. She was con demned and sold to Barneson & Chil cott, who raised and repaired her. Later she obtained an American regis try and made several trips from ' the Sound to Australia for her new owners. Then she was used as a freight trans port by the government, and again went back into the Australian trade. While on her way from Newcastle, Australia, to Honolulu, she was pur chased by William Matson, and will be added to his Hilo fleet of clippers.

Furthermore, the hy draulic pumps the debris through pip ing and by moving the end of the pip ing the stuff can be spread in any desir ed direction, and all this by one hand ling. With the scoop the debris has to be lifted out, dumped into cars on a scow, which has to be towed to a rail road connection, from whence an en gine draws the loaded cars to what ever place the debris is being dumped and unloaded. In dredging for the Railway wharf slips the Oahu Railway dredger took out 550,000 cubic yards. This was pumped onto tide-water lands until several acres of new-made land have thus been acquired by the railroad company, whose value at nresent equals the cost of the dredging and leaves a handsome bonus to its credit. Captain Parker also dredged 100.000 cu "Some of the statements made in the Bulletin and the Republican were ri diculous and it would be better if the parties responsible for them attended to their own business instead of both ering with matters of which they know nothing." Albert and Mauna Ala Arrive. At noon yesterday the bark Albert was sighted, followed soon after by the announcement that the Mauna Ala was also bearing down past Koko Head. The two barks came into the harbor about an hour apart, the Al bert mooring in the Irmgard wharf slip. The Mauna Ala is moored at the end of the Brewer wharf.

The Claudine will take the Kinau's run next week, in order that repairs can be made to the latter. Joe Seeley, the chief steward of the Zealandia, looked tired and careworn yesterday, but he pointed proudly to his coat lapel, where an Elk pin shone brightly. The United States gunboat Petrel, now lying in Naval Row, will com mence taking on 195 tons of coal today, and will be ready for sailing to San Francisco on Saturday. She will go out of commission at Mare Island. The bark Rithet has made the best record for loading at the Railway wharf thus far. It was common talk yesterday at the wharf that the Rith et's crew and the excellent manner in which the officers looked after the stowing of the cargo of sugar, that the vessel has made a splendid record. The Rithet will probably put to sea to day. The Hawaiian Band played yesterday afternoon at the departure of the steamer Claudine. The band render ed several of its most inspiriting cake walks, and kept the small gathering in good humor. A couple of members of the Legislature were aboard bound for their homes. Most of tne Island boats got away about 5 o'clock, and followed out of the harbor, tandem fashion. On the recent trip of the Zealandia Mrs. Teresa Wilcox, Wife of the dele gate, endeavored to have the hula per formed on the deck, but Captain Dow dell would have none of it. Mrs. Wil cox was the pianist, while a young lady companion danced the hula as if to the manor born. An interested au dience crowded around until the cap tain heard of what was going on. He put a stop to the performance lnstant er, and at once made an enemy of Mrs. Wilcox. Her position as the delegate's wife, she is reported to have said, was sufficient for her to take the initiative in social matters on board, and as such she would report Captain Dowdell's conduct to W. G. Irwin. It was Inti mated that Captain Dowdell might have to take his trunk and leave the Zealandia. but he still occupies his cabin. "No hulas on the Zealandia," says Captain Dowdell.
