"Who is the tall good looking young
fellow that goes around with Dr.
Cofer? Is that his son?" was a query
addressed to many people on the water
front yesterday afternoon.
The person in question is not the son
of Dr. Cofer but a fine style of an
American who is to succeed Dr. Cofer
as head of the Quarantine service in
Honolulu. Dr. Cofer goes to the Coast
on the Oceanic liner Ventura on Sep
tember 9th. On the 8th he will turn over
his work to Dr. William C. Hobdy, his
Dr. Hobdy has an interesting per
sonality. He has the stamp or a way
down South" man all over him. He is
a native of Kentucky. Although past
thirty years 'of age his appearance is
very youthful. Regular features set
off with blue eves and wavy brown
hair, with a face bare of whiskers,
give him an appearance that ladies
would term handsome. He is six feet
two inches' in height and weighs over a
hundred and eighty pounds and in hisj
younger days at coiiege was quite an
Dr. Hobdy graduated from the Ken
tucky State College and then entered
Columbia University in New York
where he obtained his medical educa
tion and graduated. After leaving the
University he spent two years in doing
hospital work in New Tork and then
entered the U. S. Marine Hospital Ser
vice. In the Quarantine service he has had
considerable experience and has been
at many different stations. After serr
vice at Old Point Comfort, Va., Phila
delphia and New York, he was one of
the few doctors in the service who had
the honor of being sent abroad. He
was stationed at Southampton, Eng
land, the half-modern, half-ancient
English seaport. After leaving England
he was ordered to Savanah, Georgia,
where he remained until he was sent to
Hawaii. . .
From the little he has already seen
of Honolulu Dr. Hobdy says he is
charmed with the place. He hopes to
be here for some time. He is accom
pnied by his wife, formerly a Kentucky
girl, and by one child. For the pres
ent they are making their -home in a
cottage in Emma street. :

KOREA SHOULD BE

Yet There is Uncertainty as to

RODMAN DOING .
THE RIGHT THING
Captain Rodman, of the U. S. S.
Iroquois, is doing a work in Hawaii
which, if carried out in the same way
by all of the officers of Uncle Sam's
navy, would materially benefit the ser
vice. Recently he received orders from
the Navy Department to recruit men at
The agents for the Pacific MailSteam
ship Company expect the new mail
liner Korea to arrive on Friday or Sat
urday. It has been considered some
what uncertain ag to whether the ves
sel would arrive this week or not ow
ing to the trouble with the government
because of the Chinese crew brought to
San Francisco .for the Korea on the
steamer Gaelic. Eut it is considered
here that a great deal depended on the
sailing of the steamer on August 30th
as she had already been delayed for
four days and if the schedule was to
be kept jgp at all she would have to
leave San Francisco on that date, and
for this reason everything possible
would be done on the Coast to get her
away on time. .
" It is not known here who the passen
gers of the Korea are to be as, no list

It is known however that her passen

The Korea will be brought alongside
the Pacific Mail wharf. There has been

vessel will have any trouble In reach--ing

TRIED A SHORT GUT
With the Result That He Nearly
Drowned and Was Severely
John Marcus, a Greek fireman em
ployed on the Inter-Island steamer
Mauna Loa, which is tied up at the
Inter-Island wharf, thought life too
short to go by roundabout ways and
took a short cut from the stern of the
vessel to the wharf twelve feet away,
with the result that he now lies at the
Queen's Hospital in a precarious con
Marcus stood on the after deck of
the Mauna Loa and made up his mind
to go ashore. To do this in the right
way he should have gone forward about
thirty feet and journeyed to the wharf
by means of the gang plank, but he
was too tired. A sailor saw him pre
paring to jump and remonstrated but
Marcus only said: "What you take
me for? Think me no jump to wharf?
I show you." The Greek showed every
body. He made the jump, landed on
the edge of the wharf, but, losing his
foothold, fell back into the water be
tween the steamer's hull and the wharf
and nearly drowned. The sailor and
some carpenters who were working on
the vessel fished him out. He was sent
to the hospital where it was found that
the injuries he had received were seri

Kennedy to Go to Hawaii.
The steamer Mauna Loa which has
been undergoing repairs for sometime
will resume her old run to Maui, Kona,
and Kau ports next Tuesday. The ves
sel has been completely overhauled.
Her hull has been cleaned, caulked,
and painted and her decks repaired.
The passenger portion of the steamer
has been renovated and painted and
everything is now in first-class order.
Manager Kennedy of the Inter-Island
line will be a passenger on the vessel
on her first round trip after undergoing
repairs and it is said that his trip may
result in several changes in the itiner
ary of the steamer's voyage to the
Gertrud Sails Saturday.
The German ship Gertrud, Captain
Henke, left Railway wharf yesterday
and is now anchored in the stream.
