FOR GOVERNOR FREAR
"WASHINGTON, December 16. The
Washington Society of Engineers met to
elect officers and a board of directors
last night at Eauscher's, and aside
from the eut-and-dried business of the
evening managed to ' have a little fun
on the side. '
The Governor of Hawaii, Walter F.
Frear, was expected to lecture, but he
did not. In his place F. H. Newell of
the reclamation service talked interest
ingly for an liour mi "Irrigation in the
Hawaiian Islands." He laid some stress
on "matters of interest to engineers,
such as the pumping of water to a
height of 500 feet; irrigation, reclama
tion, etc., but most of his talk was the
plain and unvarnished speech ttnder-
stood by unscientific people. He show
ed Hawaii from the time Captain Cook:
landed on one of the islands in 1775
and then contrasted it with a Hawaiian
city of today, which, in the views shown
strongly resembled a city of the New
Other evidences of civilization were
shown in views of Hawaiian customs,
in which several plainly distinguishable
American beer bottles were visible.
After Mr. Newell 's talk, which every-
society should incorporate was referred
to the board of directors.

Dear Sirs: We confirm our cable
message stating "Mahuka site final."
This we do upon the verbal authority
of Assistant Secretary Winthrop. who

proceed with the plan of erecting the

As we wrote yott a few days ago,
ine commumiy action upon tnis pro
posed change was so thorough, hearty
and general, that we felt the fight was
wftolly won from your end. When the
Delegate here so firmly responded to
the public sentiment at home and took
the decided stand that he would oppose
any legislation in Congress seeking to
authorize a new site, that, of course,
clinched the matter.

MAJOR LONG AND
400 MARINES TO GOME
WASHINGTON, December 22. The
marines which have been ordered re
moved from the warships by the Pres
ident will be sent to our outlying pos
sessions, according to information re
ceived today. The first assignment of
them to this duty will be to Honolulu,
where 400 will be sent early in January
on the Buffalo. They will be picked
up at various places and will sail from
San Francisco under command of Major
C. G. Long, now stationed in this city.
There being no barracks to accommo
date this force at Honolulu, the men
will spend the winter in tents.
It is understood that the marines will
be regained in the Navy and many of
ficers believe that they will in time be
restored to ship duty. The matter has
been taken up by Congress and some
action on the matter, independent of
the President, is not unlikely.
