REGAL SHOE STORE McCandless Building, King and Bethel Streets. HAWAIIAN SOUVENIRS JEWELRY and WATCHES H. Culman 1064 Fort St. "The O. E. & L. railroad company has a signed contract with the govern ment for the transportation of supplies from Honolulu to Pearl Harbor." B. F. Dillingham. "The Eapid Transit eompany has never quoted any exorbitant transpor tation rates between Honolulu and Pearl Harbor to the government be cause we have never been askea to name a rate. I am told that the story concerning the excessive rates was bas ed on the statements of a high naval officer, but I doubt if there is any foun dation for the statements." L. Ten- ney Peck. The statement that the Federal gov ernment is contemplating the construc tion of a military road between Hono lulu and Pearl Harbor is doubted very much by the presidents of the two transportation companies planning to connect the two places by their lines. The story, as published in the Bulletin, states that the figures for freight trans portation flbmitted to the government are so excessive that the government will build and maintain a road of its own, while as a matter of fact only one of the two companies referred to has been asked for a bid and that bid has been accepted. Not only has the bid been accepted, but the O. B. & L. has a contract for the carrying of freight all signed and sealed. Mr. Dillingham, president of the rail road company, stated last night that it is probable that the story of excessive quotations for freight arose from the fact that one, of the contractors figur ing on the construction of the Pearl HaPbor drydoek has been asking for figures for the transportation of rock, but that no satisfactory rates have been arrived at because no definite figures of the quantity of rock tv be transported, no information as to the nature of the cars needed for the'work or other particulars can be supplied at present. y i V O Corsets o C.ISES O'l SUPREME xThe following matters are on the calendar of the Supreme Court tor Monday January 4, at 10 a. m., the be ginning of the January session: Motions.

Opposite Catholic Church IAT OVOHI Si ABOUT LOCAL QUAKES August 11, 1906. Professor F. Omori, a leading scientist of Japan, and recog nized as among the world's leading authorities on seismic questions, on passing through Honolulu en route to Japan from California, where he had been sent by the Japanese government to investigate the earthquake in San Francisco in April 19, 1906, made the following statement to the Advertiser: "I would say there is a very slight possibility of there ever being an earth quake of any magnitude in the Hawai ian Islands. "It is noticeable that in the imme diate neighborhood of large volcanoes, - i. 11 a ll no liA.n Rn.n -. t 1 I. .. T. uj 1 v7, Liinc aic 11 u vjuicut cai iii quake shocks. Naples, for instance, is free of them. And it is therefore quite safe to say that these islands will never be visited iby such a shock as has been had in California. "That earthquake was extraordinary in the extent of the area affected and in its surface manifestations. Much of the affected area extended under the sea, for at least 150 miles, I should aay giving it an extreme length of 550 miles. The center of the disturbance was some 'distance from San Francisco, J fortunately, where the earthquake it self did little damage in comparison 1 HMHIJI JU. jj.ui The ft 0M Process oFtr?

THE WORKER MUST BE WELL In these days of sharp competition everyone who works should be keyed np to the highest pitch of efficiency. The rewards of business life go to the clearest thinkers, to the men and women who know and do things better than other people But who can do his best work when the health is impaired, when the appe tite fails to demand the food necessary to sustain the body, when strength if lacking and ambition gone! Surely the part of wisdom is to begin at once to build up the body to its normal condition, and this may be done more certainlj by the use of Stearns' Wine of Cod Liver Extraci than any other medicine. It checks hacking coughs, sharpens the appetite, aids di gestion, enriches the blood, restores flesh to the emaciated, and renews health ami vigor. It is so agreeable to the taste that its regular use is a pleasure.

Do not wait until the time comes for recitation and then com plain that you 'did not hear' or 'did not understand' when I talked." "Yes'm," chorused the scholars, cheer fully. "Very well." said the teacher, "we will beo-in today with James I., who came after Elizabeth." The new scholar raised his hand. "What is it?" asked tie teacher, graciously. "What made him come after her?" asked the new scholar eagerly. The Standard.
