MAY GO -DIRECT. The general impression in this city sis to be that the transports War ren and Crook, which have been placed on the run to Manila on account of the large number of troops who were sent out to the island possessions, will not stop here on their way back to the Coast. It seems tnat mey gress. In speaking of the trip Admiral take large cargoes of coal to the Coast iJayton said: William O. Smith Trust Department Estates Managed, Revenues Collected, .

It is a beautiful body of water and appears to -be admirably fitted for the . 1 - - V, and will in all probability maw w run from the Orient direct to San Francisco. Another rumor, which seems to have a great deal to back it up is that the larsrer transports, the Logan, Sherman use of the navy. I am very glad to and Thomas, will be laid off for re pairs as soon as the anenaan is. oc"-. on the run. They all need a thorough overhauling and will have much work to be done before they are put back in the service. i t The Sheridan is at .present in the dry dock at Mare Island and the work on her is being rushed. It is expected that she will leave San Francisco for this city for the regular trip on Jan urary 5. The temporary repairs which were made here by diver Paddy Kernan have excited the aamiriuuu of the naval men at Mare Island, who would hardly believe that such good work could be done under water. It is stated that the, plates which were repaired tightened on the way to San Francisco instead of becoming looser and that the vessel was leaking less when she arrived than when she left Honolulu.

The officers of the Big Four express themselves as. very much pleased with the coaling which has been done in this city. Approximately 6000 tons of fuel has been placed oi board the four cruisers in five days, an unusually good average. The officers of the fleet state that they have not received coal in such good time since they left New York on their long trip through the Suez canal to finally reach, this port. Paymaster Brooke and his assistant, Thos. Dunn have been greatly compli mented on the way in which the coal ing has been carried on. The Pennsylvania, the last of the vessels to coal, took, in .her complete supply Wednesday night and yester day the men on board were busy scrubbing the decks and getting the vessel back into jhape once more after the clouds of black dust which have settled on her. Painting and scrubbing occupied the entire day and will be kept up today till the big warship is In the condition which i3 customary in the American navy. RECEPTIONS AND TEAS. Two of the cruisers were In full regalia yesterday and the social side of naval life came to the fore. On board the Maryland the Hawaiian band played during the afternoon and the officers of the ship entertained a number of their friends at tea. The flasrshio West Virginia was prettily decorated with flags and bunting and a party of fifteen young ladies of this city were entertained by trie omcers of the wardroom. Afternoon tea was served on the after deck and a pleas ant hour was enjoyed by all. This afternoon the officers of the squadron will be entertained at tea by the officers and ladies at Fort Shafter. Arrangments have been made for .the cars to be met by conveyances which will take the guests to the new army post. THOMAS DUE SATURDAY.

Rorert of Rock ville Center, L, I., suffered so from headaches and ner vous trouble that she could not sleep. She has failed to derive any benefit from the many other remedies she tried. She has been completely cured and re stored to health, and now enjoys restful sleep, thanks to DUFFY'S PURE MALT WHISKEY. Mrs. Rorer is 64 years of age and cannot say too much in praise of this great family medicine. 4i I have been a constant sufferer from headache and nervous troubles, sometimes lying awake at night. I saw your advertisement in the paper and made up my mind to try your medicinal whiskey, and it did me so much good that I continued it, but now only take it in the evening and at noon time. I think that it is better than any medicine I can get. . I have not had the doctor once since I commenced using it. I thank you again and again for the good it has done me. Mv aee is C4 years." MRS. G. W. RORFR, RockvUlc Centre, L. 1., Dec. 3, liH5.

There is evi dently a glaring error iu the last re port of the Bureau of Statistics of the Department, of Commerce and Labor at Washington, in regard to the move ment of shipping at the port of IWo. The official ligures published last week, gave the number of entries at Ililo as 35 and the clearances at 29. The re port of Harbor Master Fitzgerald, made to Superintendent Holloway, for the year ending December 31, 1906, gave the entries at 53 and the clear ances at 51. These figures do not in clude any of the Inter-ls!and steamers or schooners, nor do they include large vessels coming lrom Honolulu, such as the Enterprise whpn she has gone there, or sugar ships such as the Kenilworth, Bangalore and Mohican, coming hare for cargoes. . Comparing (the "Washington official figures with the actual and correct ones of this port, for the same periods end ing June 30, 1907, they stand as fol lows: ; . Entered. Cleared. Correct. 'L 55 51 Official. . . 35 29 Difference. . . .........20 25 Jn the "correct" figures of vessels entering at Hilo are those that came from Pacific Coast ports, Australia, Japan and China; while the clearances were for coast ports, Delaware Break water and, during the first six months of this year only, for Salina Cruz. Snark will not leave for ten days at least. ' The Enterprise took a consignment ot 25 sample cases of pinearplesthe first lot from the Hilo cannery, The S. S. Alaskan took 22,181 bags of sugar from Hilo for Salina Cruz, leaving on the evening of beptemoer 4. AMERICA MARU DUE. The Toyo Klsen Kaisha steamer America Maru, coming from the Ori ent should arrive this afternoon. She will probably leave for the Coast this evening taking mail 'but no passen gers or freight. - NEW LEAGUE TO OPEN SUNDAY A meeting of the Atkinson Baseball League, which has been organized re cently, was held last night, at which the final arrangements were made for the oDeninsr of the season. The first ball will be pitched over the plate, or, rather, at the plate, by ex-Secretary A. L. C. Atkinson. Joi. Bam jonnson will be the batter who will endeavor to make a home run on this occasion The first game will be on Sunday morning at 9 o'clock at the Atkinson Park, Kakaako, and will he between the Pearl Handles, formerly known as the Police Team, and the Sanitary Steam Laundry. The second game. commencing at 11:30, will he between the Stars and the Honolulu Brewery, En Sue, of the St. Louis baseball team, has been chosen as official umpire. MK CATIICART DEFENDS HIS CHOICE. In a further statement of his posi tion regarding his proposed appoint ment of Arthur M. Brown as the pros ecuting attorney for the police court, County Attorney Cathcart said yester dav: "I have said that my proposed ap pointment of Mr. Brown was approved by the District Magistrate and by the Sheriff, and this statement is abso lutely true. I stated subsequently to both the District Magistrate and to Sheriff laukea, that unless they ap proved that appointment, I would not appoint Mr. Brown. -I do not know that the exact word approval was used by either the Dis trict Magistrate or the Sheriff, but the effect of the language used was the same as though that word was used. "I anticipate no trouble in reference to his appointment further than the op position of Mr. Hustace. He will act, undoubtedly, according to his lights. 4,I am the responsible head of the de partment. I owe a duty to the public; that duty I will try to fulfill. "I propose to appoint Mr. Brown be cause he is the most available man for that position. I will expect tnat x win be treated as fairly as I have en deavored to treat even those who are opposed to me politically. "If my judgment in this instance proves faulty, I vrill take the whole blame, as I now assume the entire re sponsibility."

He also had there the books showing certain payments which had been made to the company by Sing Loy & Co. He was perfectly willing to show all the hooks of the concern to the prosecution, provided that it would go to the office to see them. "Before we adjourn," he said, !1 wish to say that Mr. Hart has been suspend ed from the service of the company on orders from its officers in San Fran cisco, and he is now being investigated for shortage of funds. "You might state what the short age amounts to," prompted Frank Thompson, his attorney, who was pres ent. ! "The . shortage amounts to about $1700," continued Mayer. "I tripped him up on an order of 300 cases which were sent to Ewa. I asked him If he was short in his accounts, and he said that he had not taken anything, while at the same time I had it In black and white that he had. "The reason why nothing was said about tis matter before was because I was so ordered by the officers of the company. They told me that as Hart was under a bond of $2000 furnished by a trust company, I should not en gage an attorney to prosecute him, as the trust company would attend to that." Following the session at the police station the members of the jury and the officers and lawyers proceeded to the office of the Standard Oil Com pany at Iwilei, where the books were examined. Here Hart told that the original books had been destroyed and a new set made on purpose for tne investigation, while yet another pho ney set had .been .prepared for other contingencies; He further stated that' Mayer had drilled him on .'the evi dence he was to give at any investiga tion regarding these (books. His state ment respecting the books and in an swer to what Mayer had testified to at the inquest, was: "We also made up another set of dummy books as a blind, which were not to be shown unless everything was "O. K., but here you can see them here. I was instructed as to what testimony I should give in regard to them. Only the stubs remained in these books. The orders were burned by Mayer himself. We did not need a new supply of order hooks, and I did not tell Mayer so. As a matter of fact, we had a large number of them in this drawer up to the Saturday 'before Labor Day. On Labor Day Mayer called me over to the office. He showed me the draw er and called my attention to the fact that it was empty, in spite of the fact that I had seen the books there on Saturday. He then ordered me to order a new set of hooks from the Star. "On another occasion, before the fire, when there was a shortage amounting to several hundred cases. Mayer had that charged to leakage." Following the revelations made at the last two sessions of the Inquest it was thought by the police department that a formal charge of errtbezzlement against Hart should he laid and that Mayer should be arrested and held for investigation, hut on the advice of R. W Breckons this has not been done. Hart is still toeing held in custody and no one is allowed to see him. It was stated yesterday that his confes sion was secured through a threat that otherwise prosecution against him un-Ae-r the Edmunds Act would be com menced. U. S. District Attorney Breckons denies this, however. CLEANED WASHED RAGS. We want clean washed rags at thl. office. Three cents abound paid. Bring all you have and get cash for them.
