The situation is one which is likely within a
to affect the whole of the coal trade of the Pacific C
Canal is opened to affect the coal trade generally.
As it would take action by congress to get anything done toward placing
the matter in the hands of the courts, the opportunity will be open for an
extremely bitter struggle on the floor in which the wh'ole
Ballinger-Pinchot controversy can be aired. This controversy is in a very
delicate situation, at the present time, owing to the widely different reports
made yesterday by the majority and minority of the investigating committee.
It was known, vf course, that at least two reports would be offered by different
sections of the- committee at the opening session of congress, and news comes
from Washington that intriguing in behalf of each side of the controversy
lias been under way foe come weeks. It would be considered unfortunate for
the administration to afford another opportunity to pti-h this matton promi

THE SUCKER LIST.
The Purr P.rothers. the New York stock swindlers recently unmasked by tht
postollici- authorities, had in their oilice what is known on Wall
"sucker list."' This list contained the names Xif pe
who would "bite"' at anything offered them in tin
scheme, if the list was at all representative it must have been a long one. One
of the discouraging signs of the times is the eagerness .wit h which temptations
for reckless investments prevail. Not only inexperienced women and young
men just out if school, but men of mutiny years and some success sometimes
snap up propositions that should not, on their very face, deceive anybody. The
love of money is the root of a good deal of credulity.

Through error, either in the Associated Pre-s oliice in San Francisco or in
the cable transmission, a recent message was received by The Advertiser and
published to the effect that Secretary Uallinger was the author vf a ship
subsidy hill, which he expected would be passed during this session of congress.
Instead of the bill being from Secretary Ballinger, however, mail advices show
that it is the bill formerly presented iu the senate by Senator Gallinger. dust
how Secretary Hallinger was to have a hill presented in the senate was not
apparent, but the Associated message received was clear enough.

"This sort of thing lias got to stop," said Judge Cooper from the circuit
court bench yesterday, referring to the number of cases vf assault upon girls
in Honolulu. The judge might have gone further ami annouunced that the
making of agreements between the lawyers for the prosecution and those for
the defense that, if a jdea of guilty were made sentence would be suspended,
has also got tv stop. It leads to sn-picion and it also gives the city attorney's
department the power to be not only the prosecuting department of the gov
ernment but the sentence imposing part as well.
Every week, a dozen or so. notices which the writers would like to see
appear in the Ivcal coliimn of this paper, are thrown in the wastepaper basket
because the ones writing them have not seen fir to follow the yle of this paper
iu their communications. If a notice is worth being printed, it is worth being
properly written by the one it benefits. A few minutes devoted to studying
notices that do appear will shvvv others how to write. The Advertiser office
is a busy place and there is no time to spare to correct other people's mistakes,
made week after week.
Ihmolulans are uniformly considerate. This is a trait generally shared and
one for which the citizens of this city are noted at home and abroad. P.ecause
of this de-ire to be considerate, Ilouohilaiis will do their Christmas shopping

Desertions in Army.
WASHINGTON. November lo. Ac
cording to the annual report of Adjt. (
Gen. Ainsw.irth, there are 4. 310 otlicers !
and fi7.4o!t enlisted men in the regular ihe war department or th
army and ;i otlicers and "r.liti.t enlisted j ment and their desires an
men in the Philippine S.-outs. making j I'11'''1 with- This is a itli'tti"
a total of 4.470 otlicers and 7l.'.."i."i!t en- !
listed men. not including .'!,ls0 enlisted i
men of the Hospital Corps, hut includ- ;
ing If'7 first lieutenants of the Med'oa! !
I'eserve Corps on active duty. The I
commanding generals of a majority of j
jth" geographical military departments, I
as in previous years, invite attention m i
their annual re; orts t the shortage of!
oliicers due tnanily to the relatively
large numl-rs of oliicers absent from
their comma mis on detached service.
From these reports it appears that
l!-"."!! per cent of the ! ne oliicers and
lo.f,7 per cent of the general and staff
oliicers were al sent from their com
mands. Of the (U-2 line otlicers on de
tached duty. ")'"). or 4 per cent, were
captains or lieutenants.
.. Reductions in Desertions. "
Tn the matter of desertions, the nd-
infant general says that the condition
that confronts the government is a very
grave one. The ollieial returns show
".111 desertions from tht1 enlisted force
during the past fiscal year. This num
ber is :J,.r,ii per cent of the whole number
of enlisted men in service, or of en
listment contracts in force, during that
year. The number is Mn.fi per cent less
than the number of desertions during
the preceding fiscal year.
The adjutant general says that the
'eduction in the desertion ratio is un
doubtedly due to the continuance of
svsfemat'c a ml vigorous efforts to ap
prehend and punish deserters.
The regiments serving in the United
States that had the lowest percentages
of desertions during the year were the
21th Infantry and the lblh Cavalry,
both colored organizations. The regi
men s with the highest percentage-: of
desertions were the 4th Field Artillery,
the sfh Tnfantrv and !th Cavalry. Of
the white troops 11.77 per cent and
of the colored troops hut 1" per cent
were reported as deserters, as compared
with o.oVi per cent for the whole army.
Compared With British Army.
Comparative tables show, the adju
tant general says, that the desertion
rate of our colored troops compares
favorably with the very low desertion
rate of the P.ritish army, and that both
of these rates are very mtn-h lower than
the .lescitioii rate of our white troops.
"Ina-mtich as our colored soldier-,
including tho-e who desert as well as
those who do not," says the adjutant
general, "are treated in every way pre-
nit white sonnei-s, i: s
Expert witnesses are allowed to give
evidence as to what is their opinion,
and hence are out of the reach of an
indictment for perjury, which always
hangs over the head of the ordinary
witness, who can testify to fact Qiily.
Apropos of this, there used to he a
--.aying current, years ago. of a judge
who recogi ized three degrees in liars:
the liar simple, the d d liar, and the
expert witness. There is another ver
sion which is of interest namely, the
three degrees of liars, which are said
to he the liar, the d d liar, and the
