Ml 101 REGULATIONS MAKE TROUBLE Provisions Governing Tehuan- tepec Shipments May Annoy People. The new set of regulations governing shipments via the Tehuantepec route have been received at the Custom House. Had the regulations arrived some days ago, before tha S. S. Arizo nan was cleared, their enforcement might have caused considerable trouble to the local customs officials. Under the provisions of the new reg ulations it would seem that it was re quired of the Inspectors at this port to check every piece of cargo that was loaded into vessels bound for Salina Cruz. Inasmuch as two or more hatches are constantly worked aboard the big American-Hawaiian, freight steamers loading sugar during their stay In this port and at other island ports, tne " customs inspectors would have a very laborious task. In fact the work that such application of the regulations would involve would more than tax the present force of inspec tors. At least four, or more extra men would be required on duty during every day and night that the vessels were In port. Such an enforcement of the reg ulations would seem to be unnecessary and, Incidentally, expensive. Inasmuch as the cargoes have to be checked at both sides of the Mexican coast, an additional checking at any Hawaiian port would appear to be use less. It is more than probable, how ever, that the new regulations, which bear the date of December 13, 1906, were intended to apply to the transfer and shipment aboard the cars in Mexico and not at Honolulu or any other is land port. - Acting Collector Stackable declined to make any statement yesterday afternoon, relative to this' feature of the new regulations and the possible annoyance that its application might cause his force. The Arizonan was cleared here be fore the new set of regulations were received from Washington, so there has been no opportunity of putting them into operation. If the regulations should be given the literal application that their provisions - would imply. It would cause a great deal of trouble to all parties concerned, in Hawaii. By a unanimous opinion of the Su preme Court, written by Justice Hart- well, Judge Robinson's decree of fore closure in the suit of August Dreier v. Jonn D. Holt Jr. et al., is amrmeo.

Church, an American painter whose personality has made him popu lar with many of his brother artists and who is widely known here for his paintings of imaginative subjects, re cently, at the age of sixty-four, "re turned from his first trip to Europe and gave to the Herald his impressions of what he had seen there, he created an international episode. Neither Mr, Church nor his critics, both here and abroad, have minced matters; but while his views have generally been condemn ed as extreme, he has found some de fenders in part, as both the European edition of the Herald and the special cable despatches to the Herald have re ported. Here are some of the things said by Mr. Church : "I subscribe to ' Fred ' Remington's gospel, To hell with Europe!' I thought the Louvre a terror. You have to wade through an immense gallery of stuff to see a few fine things. What impressed me most about the old masters was that they did too much work. In. the National Gallery I saw a lot of people standing with a rapt expression before a big Raphael, whieh is dark and hard, and which I wouldn't have for a gift. Tr oil ff T?nrtTia T .liiln'f Hon a landscape painting, whether by Turner or any one else, that touched Homer Martin's 'Sand Dunes of Lake On taria,' whieh hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art." The artist added, however, that pictures played a sec ondary part on his tour, or, as he phrased it, "Figuratively speaking, I went through the pieture galleries on roller skates." Putting it mildly, Mr. Church's re marks created amazement, in some in stances, however, as it is onJy fair to him to Btate, mingled with admiration for a man who has shown the courage of his convictions. Mr. Roland Knoed ler, of Messrs. Knoedler & Co., who commented more sarcastically on the interview than -any one else, asked if "Mr." Church might not by mistake have gOBe to the .Magazin de Louvre instead of to the Museum." Mr. Louis R. Enrich, of the Ehrich Galleries, agreed with the artist in his estimate of American landscape painting. "On the other haad," added Mr. Ehrich, " the great galleries of Europe contain examples of the old masters which far surpass anything that is created today Or likely to be produced in many-a long day to come.". Mr. Blakeslee, of the :BlakesIee Galleries, ' characterised the attack as "silly. " "After the consensus of many minds, lay and professional, expressed in hun dreds of years," said Mr. Elliott Dain- gerfield, "nobody will suffer except Mr. Church. I take it that neither the Louvre nor the galleries of Holland will close their doors." 4 'It must be remembered," said Mr. Irving B. Wiles, "that this was Mr. Church's first visit to Europe. The sort of thing you see over there does not dawn on you at once." Mr. William M. Chase frequently goes abroad and has studied the great galleries of Europe thoroughly. "Had Mr. Church been a young man," was this artist's comment. and with art schooling, which he never had, he would have a different story to tell. He is a typical Amer ican, loved by. every one who knows him, yet his intense Americanism has prejudiced him against that which he found on the Other side." ft LITTLE C SETS FATAL BURNS Rebecca Kelley, the six-year old daughter of Frank and Annie Kelley, of Gulick avenue, died yesterday fore noon at the Queen's Hospital, the re sult of severe burns" accidentally re ceived some hours before. The little one suffered extremely, death coming- as a welcome relief, the hospita! doc tors having held out no hope to the parents that the child could recover, although doing everything in their power to relieve the agony and save the young life. - Rebecca had been left alone In the house, the mother having gone for the moment to a neighbor's, when she at tempted to start a fire with kerosene in the cookstove. In some manner the oil exploded, setting fire to the child's clothing, and by the time the mother returned the clothing had been con sumed and the child was terribly burn ed. A summons for a doctor waa sent immediately, Dr. C. B. Cooper answer ing the call and doing what was possi ble- The ambulance was also telephon ed for and the little sufferer taken to the hospital. The accident occurred early yester day morning, death coming to the lit tle victim shortly before twelve o'clock. There will be no inquest the coroner deeming such unnnecessaxy. . : POLICE AT THE BALL. Col. Iaukea, as chairman of the com mittee on law and order of the Kilo hana Art League, will have member of his force present in costume at the Mardi Gras ball to preserve decorum. This was the policy at the last Mardi Gras ball, but nothing was said about it. MARINE According to reports brought here by the b. b. Sonoma the Spree kels' tug Relief is to be sent to Honolulu short. ly, to replace the Charles Counselman. The latter craft will be transferred to Ililo. the nort Ttu,,. it,. ,.,..! on service. The Relief is a vessel of j about 825 horse power and has about inn i. . . iW aorsepower than the tug earless. The latter craft is to le converted into an oil burner and as soon as the renovation of her be corn- pleted, the Relief .will be dispatched to Honolulu. It was not stated wheth - er Captain Olssen, the commander ofj the Counselman would be transferred to the Relief but it seems likely that he will, m view of his success in the towing and salvage business of the ipreckels' interests about the Hawai- lan Islands. , AWAITING NEWS FROM OCEAN TST.AWT1 The S mm- ... -w. JCT u an AAf3 aviso from Ocean Island before she departs for that place from Honolulu. The Sildra is under a charter that pays about 1100 pounds a month. She is to secure a eargo of 5000 tons of guano at Ocean Island, half of which is for Honolulu and the remainder for San Franciseo. It is at present unknown whether a sufficient amount of the stuff is on hand in the warehouses at Ocean Island to supply her, so information on this score is being awaited before she is to be dispatched from Honolulu. Communication is maintained between Ocean Island and Fiji the nearest place where a eable station is located, by means of a dispatch boat. As soon j as word ean be received relative to the available supply of guano for the Sildra, he will be dispatched.
