Site Not Yet Selected. It may be a matter of surprise to the community that the site has not yet been selected. When General Barry, ho was recently in command of the Department of California, returned to the mainland from an inspection tour Oahn, it was thought that the site had "betm determined upon by him. General Barry, however, merelv looked oyer what are called the "Sehuvler Site" and the "Castner Site," and" de cided that as far as he was concerned, the Schuyler site was the better situat ed.

Rumor was about town last night that the one to be de tained would be an officer. District Attorney Breekons, when asked the identity of the party, became as silent as the Sphinx on the main point and merely replied, parenthetically, that he had very much more opium in his keep ing at that moment than he had last Sunday. The entire crew of the Sierra, offi cers and all. were recently under sub pena to appear before the district at torney, and then suddenly all subpenas were withdrawn and the officers and crew released from any obligations to appear. Meanwhile the district attor new, working quietly but surely, has fastened some claim against one mem ber of the Sierra's family and that one will be held here pending an investiga tion. Breekons is burrowing deeper and deeper into the puzzle of opium smug gling and is gradually getting a more definite idea of what vessels are bring ing it here, and about who is responsi ble for its landing from the ships. STRINGENT ENFORCEMENT OF MILK ORDINANCE ORDERED Drastic action in regard to the en forcement of the milk ordinance is ordered after January first. The health I committee of the board of supervisors, which met yesterday afternoon, was notified by the territorial officials that the inspection of the dairy herds of Oalu: would be completed on that date. This is what the city officials have been waiting for, as they gave the , dairymen that much time to purge their stock of tubercular cattle. At the pres- ; cut time about sixty or more per cent. ' of the milch cows which supply Hono- j lulu and the county in general have j been condemned by the territorial veterinarians acting under the powers ' of the city ordinance and with the as sistance of both the federal and terri torial governments. Under the ordinance the milk from these animals can not be sold. The present leniency which permits it up ROYAL EXTREMES TO MEET IN HONOLULU THIS MORNING Who will visit Honolulu today. Two big steamships will bring two big personages to town today. On board the transport Sherman will be the five foot five-inch Sultan of Sulu. whom Uncle Sam is pensioning since the Philippine archipelago was taken over from Spain. On board the Japa nese liner Chivo Jlaru will be the uucle. of the Emperor of China, Prince Tsai Ilsun, both en route to their homes in the far East. Prince Tsai Umiu is going home very quietly and while in port here nothing will be done officially to recognize hi presence. Governor Frear and Secre tary Mott-Smith will make uo calls upon him officially, all honors having been accorded him on his trip to the mainland. The Prince, as already stat ed in The Advertiser, lias informed the local consul that he will remain aboard the liner all day. He will be espe cially guarded during his stay. The Sultan of Sulu has no fear of anybody trying to do him any harm. He is eminently satisfied with himself and the world, for he has just seen the latter for the first time. He is a pen sioner of the American government, al though ruling under the American flag is not what it was when he was supreme in his owa little kingdom. He then controlled the great pearl fisheries. Now he does not, and he has been making a world tour just to separate himself from a magnificent set, the proceeds to be devoted to building up his kingdom and hiring American school teachers to iib'uit a gun are year. At present the great inder the eye of watchmen. Spend More Than Million. Next in consideration is the possible determination of the quartermaster general to decide whether or not a de pot quartermaster's building will be reeled on The government land on lower Fort street between Queen street an 1 the e. anic wharf. Bids were call ed for a buUding there some time ago. but the bids were in excess of what the quartermaster's department consid ered should be spent, and the bids were called olf. All these propositions call for the expenditure of considerably more than a million dollars, probably not less thou i.roo.ooo. Even the English vessels putting in at this port have been subjected to a searching investigation and the district attorney, it is understood, has a clue which leads him to some vessel or ves sels flying the Union Jack. The amount of opium which it is claimed the district attorney has been able to trace to the Sierra is said to be valued in the neighborhood of $3i)00. Suit Against Breekons. A suit of ten thousand dollars dam ages was filed against United States (District Attorney K. W. Breekons yes terday by a Chinese named Chuck Sing, by his attorney, Lorrm Andrews. Chuck Sing in his complaint charges that Breekons, without authority of law and without being armed with a search warrant, entered his house and searched it for opium. Breekons failed to find any of the dope and Chuck Sing thereupon filed suit for damages as above stated. Breckous is an official who believes in taking a chance when there is rea sonable ground to believe that a crime has been committed. It was by taking a chance that he, a short time ago, cap tured $io00 worth of opium in the house of a Chinese on Kukui lane. Breekons stated last night over the telephone that he knew nothing about any suit having been filed against him. "I guess it's all right," he said. "I'm not worrying." Lee Let 's suit for ten thousand dol lars, against Breekons, based on a simi lar charge, has been set for trial on the seventeenth of the present mouth. to that time is in line with a policy adopted by the city health authorities as the lesser of two evils. City Physician Maekall is now tak ing steps to notify the dairymen of his intention to enforce the ordinance, noti fication being given in accordance to an agreement made by him in which he promised to give ample notice of his in tention. The results of the enforcement may have a far reaching effect on the city, creating what will to all purposes be a milk famine, as the herds are nene too plentiful now , and the slaughter of the .tubercular animals will reduce them by half. I'riees of milk will naturally soar, and twenty-five cents a quart will not bs an imjtossible price. The importation of healthy cows will commence prob ably at once in order that by the time the enforcement is ordered the loss will not be felt all at once as it would be if there were no substitutes for the tabued cattle. ft SULTAN OF SULU. iustruct the young members of Sulu.

CASH FOUND TO BE 1110 SHORT Police Court Clerk Clark Arrested on Third Day of His Honeymoon. BRIDE MAKES UP SHORTAGE Checks in the Cash Drawer Are Redeemed Grand Jury Will Probe. With the arrest of Henry N. Clark yesterday, charged with the embezzle ment of $2SS dollars from the police court funds, an unsavory condition of atfairs in the clerical and financial rec ords of the court has been exposed. A week's work on the books of the court by Deputy City Auditor James Lloyd resulted in the discovery of shortages in the cash amounting to over $lS0d, most of which has now been paid buck, a shortage of $1C0 still being left. - The arrest of Clark is taken as herald ing that of others implicated in the wholesale peculations which are said to have extended over a period dating from last February and possibly further. Clark 's total shortage amounted to 1240, all of which, with the exception of $40 was deposited in gold Monday with the city attorney. As restitution is not a bar to prosecution in embez zlement eases, it made no difference in the legal action and the warrant, sworn to by Lloyd, was served on ('lark yeworday morning by Deputy Sheriff ( naries Kose. ; Other warrants might yet be sworn j out against Clark for other sums which I went to make up the total. The $223 j which he is accused of taking repre- ! seiueu iony-eigni lorreitea Dans 01 ?0 each which were turned over to him by Sheriff Jarrett and which had accumu lated during the month of June. This amount was duly entered in the books, but afterwards scratched carefully off and no record now appears. Sheriff Jarrett still holds the receipts for the sum. Of the balance for which Clark is not responsible, $120 lays at the door of Ben Zablan, chief clerk of the court. For this sum, taken from the funds of the court, he deposited his personal check, which, however, is said to be worth nothing but the paper it is writ ten on and amounts practically to an T. O. U. No straight I. O. Us were found. This sum is consequently unsecured by anything as the check is not nego tiable, and represents an actual short age in the accounts. A further sum of $43o was also miss ing, unsecured by anything except two; checks, one of whieh was made out to i "Cash" and the other to the "District! Magistrate of Honolulu." The two! checks are .now in the hands of the ! county auditor, although money was yesterday turned in to the city attor- ney to cover them. These funds are the forfeited bails j ami the fines which have accumulated! during the quarter. Clark's bond was set at two thousand dollars, Carlos Long and Dr. John ('owes going on it. Charles Chilling worth will represent him in court this morning when a continuance will be asked for. The grand jury will take up the en tire matter this afternoon and whether or not any indictments are returned its investigation is expected to result in a complete change of personnel in the police court clerical foree. It was stated yesterday upon respon sible authority that this action had al ready been taken and that the clerks i had been discharged but the rumor came too late to be verified. Clark was an appointee of District Magistrate Andrade. His arrest for embezzlement came two days-after his wedding to Mrs. August Dreier. He! had full charge of the books of the court relating to the finances. His bond for ."0(ie with the Waterhouse Trust Company, lapsed in July and was not renewed. TAUSTSJ ALLIANCE Roosevelt Denounces Democracy Advocates a Commission for Workingmen. ST. LOUIS, Missouri. October 12. Colonel Roosevelt, in a political speech here last night, roasted and denounced the Democratic party of New York and the party leaders. "There is now an unholy alliance be tween the New York Democrats and the powers of Wall Street." he de clared, "between Tammany Hall and the trusts." In his address. Mr. Roosevelt attacke 1 the Demoerats of Missouri and defend o.l his owr. position and the position of the Republican party in regard to the tariff'. He did not discuss the merits of the Aldrieh-l'ayne tariff but came out strongly -in favor of the Republican plan for a tariff commission and ad vocated a new commission to determine it' the workingmen of the country were really getting the benefit they are sup posed to lie enjoying under the protec tive tariff'. WILL INTRODUCE E Supervisors Are to Consider Or dinance Regulating Sale of Food. MEAT MUST BE COVERED Supervisors Take Prompt Action When Attention Is Called to Situation. The next meeting of the board of supervisors will see the introduction of a new ordinance which is expected to remedy the vicious evils of the present system of selling foodstuffs at the fish market and other places about the city. If the present plans of the health committee of the supervisors are car ried out and passed by the full board, it will stand as one of the most radical pieces of sanitary legislation that Ho nolulu has experienced for a long time. Official Chemist E. B. Blanehard ap peared before tne nealtn committee at a meeting yesterday afternoon at three o'clock and outlined the results of his experiments -with meat samples as al ready published in The Advertiser. The whole situation was carefully re viewed and City Physician Mackall and PHOTECT V LM Supervisor Logau, chairman of the kthreatened with a food shortage, mak liealth committee will proceed imnie-1 . ., ?. pn diately to draw up the ordinance. It was first intended to write to Oak land for a copy of a similar ordinance which was passed thre some time, ago over the veto of the mayor. Logan ha,1 this idea in mind for some-time and stated yesterday that he was partially diseouraged by the little support given him in regard "to the milk ordinance and did riot do so. However, after some deliberation it was yesterday determined to draw Op the ordinance at once without waiting for legal assistance and present it to the board at the next meeting if pos sible. Blanehard is already at work on the list of foodstuff's which may not be exposed for sale, but as these will in clude almost every fish, meat and vege table, it will be practically a "blanket" provision. While the salt water sprinkled upon the fish keeps the flies oft' to some degree, some of Blanch ards experiments have shown that the fish develop maggots also, although not to such a great extent as did the sample of meats which he nrocured.

FOOD SHORTAGE IN PARIS Spanish Mobs Grow Restive, but in Portugal Government Has Situation in Hand. PARIS. October 12. All of north western France is tied up today as the result of a strike on both the Northern Ra'lroad and the Western Railroad, in which eighty thousand men are involv ed. The Western Railroad is con trolled by the State, the men on that line going out last night in sympathy with the strikers of the corporation owned line, who struck yesterday morn ing. As a result of the stoppage of rail road traffic into Paris from the north ern and western irovinces, this city is ing the situation a serious one. Military engineers have leen ordered to replace the strikers on the locomo tives of the government line and a de cree has also (been published calling thirty thousand of the strikers, who are in the reserves, to the colors. This call subjects the men of the reserves to military discipline, and as soldiers they may be ordered to move the trains which they, as striking train men, have abandoned. Refusal to obey this order will su1 jeet the striking reservist to punish ment according to military law. lisbdn me FOB THE PRESENT LISBON, Portugal, October 11. The city today is quiet.
