I "Just as I am, without one plea, But that Thy blood was shed for me, And that Thou bids't me come to Thee, . I Oh Lamb of God, I come." Hundreds of men kneeling on the hard board floor of the chapel of Cen tral Union Church sang that verse last night with an expression that brought a new meaning to many hearts. There were men of every race and color; tnere were men of many creeds and men of no creed. There were men in uni form and men in citizen's clothes; men in frock coats and men in rags. But all bowed with one accord and one purpose and poured out a common petition to a God who is no respecter of persons. There were men there last night who count their assets in seven figures, but who knelt down beside men barefooted and penniless, seeking to find a Saviour whose love is big enough and wide enough for alL It was a remarkable meeting, the service last night. The address was strong and- to the point, the congregational singing was inspiring, the soloist's work was beautiful and touching. But the most remarkable scenes were en acted in the chapel, where men met for a heart-to-heart meeting. There was hardly a man in the audience who did not respond to Dr. Ostrom's invitation to go into the after meeting. Mothers and wives and sisters and friends remain ed in the auditorium for a brief service while the men went out. And while the meeting was going on they prayed for the sons and husbands and brothers and friends within. Inside the chapel Dr. Ostrom made a short, straight-out-from-the-shoulder talk. He laid the question, "What will you do with Jesus!" plainly. before the men. He spoke of the duty of a husband toward his wife and children; of the great opportunity for young men to make their lives tell for good, espe cially here in Honolulu, where influence goes out to the four corners of the globe: and he thanked especially the men of the transport and cruiser, many of whom have regularly attended the services and made a special appeal to them. At the close, the evangelist gave an invitation to those who wished to accept Christ or reconsecrate their lives to him, to come forward. Eight men came up and made public confession of their decision to follow Christ, then all went down on their knees in earnest prayer, singing as a petition the hymn, "Just as I am." At the conclusion, many pressed forward and grasped the hands of those who had made their decisions, while others stopped to talk with the pastors or workers. fi The revival is gaining strength. Yesterday noon's meeting at the Y. M. C. A. was crowded and a great spiritual uplift was reported. Today there will be three meetings, at noon in the M. C. A. auditorium; at 3 p. m. in Central Union, and at 7:30 p. m. in the same place. All are invited to each of these services. Dr. Ostrom will speak and Mr. Butler and Mr. Hillis will sing.

Many rose ana reported meetings full of interest. Aft- er prayer Dr. Kincaid reported from - m.. the noon meeting. The pastor of the Portuguese church spoke of the en- thusiastie spirit in which his people entered into the morning meetings. During the singing of a hymn an offer ing for the incidental expenses of the revival was taken up. Dr. Ostrom took as his text "Thou shalt call his name Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sins." He said in substance: "Man is pictured as great all through the Bible, except when he comes Into contact with God. It was said 'he is a little lower than the an- gels' and later 'Ye are gods.' Man is i - Wl,,,.i s0 great inai ne ran world quicker than I can speak. He is so very great that God has given him a law, he has made a covenant with him.

COCHRAN IS NOT COMING WITH THE TAFT PARTY A private letter received by the Korea conveys the information that W. Bourke C.

"1 am sorry that I will not be able to come to Honolulu with the Taft party,'' Mr. Cochran writes. "I had intended to sail from San Francisco with Secretary Taft, but have changed my plans and shall go via the Suez canal and join the Secretary either in Japan or Manila."

Japanese in mass meeting last night bitterly arraigned Consul-General Miki Saito for his alleged relations with the Japanese immigration companies and the Kei Hln Bank. The mass meeting was held at the Japanese Theater. The speakers said that Mr. Saito's influ ence in Hawaii was a thing of the past, and that the sooner he left the islands CONSUL-GENERAL MIKI-SAITO. and returned to Japan, the better. Not i only did Consul Saito come In for cen- sure, but the immigration companies "and the Kei Hin Bank were charged , with false dealings with immigrants. The i nnsul a '1 companies were classed as an "odious clique." The meeting was attended by hun dreds of Japanese, the theater being crowded to the doors.

He asked that if any friend of the con sul's wanted to reply to his remarks he desired him to do so then or before he went away, not after he left. Such a course would be cowardly. Mr. Shimada discussed the duties of a Consul-General. Primarily they were to protect the interests of thoce given in his charge. The Japanese looked to their Consul-General for protection. The consul was sent to HawaU to rep resent the government, to prevent strikes, if possible. In all cases the consul must uphold the dignity of the (Continued on page 7. FROM THE CAPITAL Mr. Walker's Letter on Washington Affairs. (Mail Special to the Advertiser). WASHINGTON', D. C. April 28 There has been a recent quickening here at the Capitol. The lethargy, fol lowing the departure of the President weeks ago and the virtual removal of the seat of the government to the wilds of Texas and the mountain fastnesses of Colorado, is dispelled. The President is hurrying back from his hunting tr.ip, sooner than was generally anticipated. All sorts of reasons are being given for the cutting short of his vacation, except what is possibly the strongest one tnat ne has become tired of rough ing it in a snow bound, bleak, and al most uninhabited country at the most inhospitable season of the year and hankers to return once more to civiliz- ition. Within a few days, also, there has been a decided stir here over charges, alleged to have been made by Minister to Venezuela Bowen, involv ing Assistant Secretary of State Loomis. The latter has vigorously de nounced the charges as fal?e in every particular but Bowen is to come home and there will be a settling of scores apparently when the President is put in possession of all the facts. There will be plenty of business for the Pres ident's consideration, when he returns. Castro is stri a problem to the adminis tration and Minister Bowen may throw a little light on that situation as well as on the Loomis charges when he reaches here. But there are also other matters of state, which would certainly make it look better for the President to cut his play days short for the present. Re cently the great increase of the Treas ury deficit has been emphasized. It is by no means likely that the President can check the growth of this deficit, now promising to reach $35,000,OCO be fore the close of this fiscal year but there are many questions in connection with it. on which he must ascertain public sentiment. Above all, the wheels of the government turn more smoothly when the President is here. Human nature is the same in Washington as in other parts of the country and when the official head is away there is re laxation in every department of the government service. Washington is greatly interested in the Loomis-Bowen embroglio, because both are well known to the official acute stage. He has reat avoirdupois At the temperament. Loomis is lean, and calm. He has had a remarkible car r ' all toId having risen largely by h.'s own effort from the station o?. a news paper correspondent to that of uuni3t r to two countries and is now supposed to be on the way to amba m i-l rs'iip at the city of Mexico. He h.is been the center of a deal of turmoil ant' this has causeed some men to doubc his real capacity for affairs. On the othr hand he has had some very good ideas ab.ut writer and there can be no question that Loomis has ability in more than one direction. In advancing the com mercial interests of this country, he has done excellent work wherever he has been, whether as consul at St. Etienne or as minister to Venezuela or Portugal. At present he is known to have the President's confidence. If he retain It and proves himself entirely free from the charges that Minister Bowen is supposed to have promulgated. Loomis will emerge as a bigger man than ever. Two or three years aaro it was suppose'! he had received about all in the way of official honors he could hope for but notwithstanding the oppo-ition he has encountered he has been constantly growing stronger. He ha- been much the acting secretary of state, which has undoubtedly caused him to be a target for more criticism than otherwise would have been the case. AS TO TH E3 DEFKTT.

Wilkie, Chief of the United States Secret Service, was in Hono lulu yesterday en route to Manila, where he will establish a branch of the service. On his return next August he will stop off at Honolulu and arrange for a branch here. Mr. Wilkie was seen aboard the Korea by an Advertiser reporter yesterday afternoon and asked concerning the installation of the service in Honolulu. "Our service is primarily to see that the country has good, honest money. and not counterfeit. It extends all over the country and this will be the first step toward extending it to Hawaii and the Philippines. Our service looks pri marily after the Treasury Department. The postoffice has its own secret ser vice. Of course, there are many other matters pertaining to other depart ments o ftbe government which require us to keep men in touch. The seeret service will have no connection with the Territorial government, no more, in raft, than the United States Marshal has here." Mr. Wilkie expressed himself well pleased with his first view of Honolulu. "It is a progressive city. I was surprised," said he, "to see that it was such an American city. Of course, there is the Chinese and Japanese sections, but the city as a general thing strikes one as being American in the main. It has all the American characteristics. ' "The scene as one comes along in a steamer gives one, so to speak, an optical jag. I have never seen such a riot of vivid colors in nature before, as saw this morning when our steamer approached Honolulu." Chief Wilkie was born in Elgin. Illinois. April 27. 186". He began news paper work on the Chicago Times in 1877 and was twice abroad as its repre sentative. In lw!' he went to London and engaged in banking and steamship business, returning to the United States in 1896, and resuming special work for Chicago papers with a specialty for criminal investigation. He was selected by Secretarv Cage for chief of the secret service in 1898. He organized a spe cial force of men to checkmate Spanish spies during the Spanish-American War, and succeeded in driving from the country or arresting the chief Spanish, emissaries. ' While in the Philippines Mr. Wilkie will investigate a fraudulent issue of Philippine American dollars with which the Islands are being flooded bj a gang of clever counterfeiters. Mr. Wilkie admits that some of his men have been collecting testimony for the Federal Grand Jury in Chicago in the meat packers cases. These men are being paid out of the $."300,000 appropriated by the last ' ongregg for the purpose of pushing this investigation.
