It t with profound regret that Hono-tab toaraed by yesterday's mall of the daatk of CoJoael J. C. Balrd. United Stat as Attorney for this district. For knh tiaM prior to bis reco&t departure mat Hawaii, Cotoael Balrd had not kMi la good health; and though he bora ap against this misfortune with ctHaateaa'able fortitude, yet he reached trhi eJd aone only to pass away. Goteoel Balrd was a good example of tbe beat type of American His aspirations were always tafgh: hla methods wore always wooliy; aad his successes were always deaarved. He was a by birth, and after receiving -public school education, followed by ?5ie practical training at Pittsburg. "Tsa aaedmad the editorship of a local newspaper. Ho then combined and law, devoting his spare moments to the study of that profession in which he afterwards became so prominent. Upon hiB removal to Wyoming, his merit was recognized by bla appointment 03 Judge District Attorney, mom-bar of the Board of Trade and of the Wyoming Legislature. In all of these positions. Colonel Balrd distinguished himself highly; and when, therefore, ho was selected by President McKlnloy for appointment as United States Attorney in this District, the selection was approved and ratified by the unanimous judgment of all wbo Xnew Ulm. His administration of tbe offiiM in Honolulu has been in coin plate accord with the life and cbnntcter of the man; nnd no one who had to do with him. officially or personally, could refuse him esteem or doay blta reapect. His whole life was a worthy object lesson; It was an example worthy of emulation; and now that it has gone out, wo have th-i sombre satisfaction at least that it want out upon the scone of former and in the place wherein wuro laid the broad foundations of his high reputation. LITTLE FOR GOVERNOR. News arrived by tho Vontura yesterday that prominent friends of Hawaii in the East were urging the name of Judge Gilbert F. Little' for tho office of Governor of the Territory. Judge Little has for a long time been tho nominee of the people of Hilo nnd Hawaii island, and made many warm persona! friends during his short stay In Honolulu a few months ago, when be heard a number of cases in which tho presiding Judge was . disqualified. His judicial acts at that time were marked as above roproach. and hd carried with him from the city the admiration and esteem of many who had theretofore boon strangers to him. Judge Little Is n. most striking personality and an interesting acquaintance. He has made friends wherever he has gone in the Islands, and these friends are among all nationalities. Tho groat ability of Judge Little is recognized in Washington as it is horo. If the latest reports from the are only halt true tbe situation In the Archipelago is not satis factory. That tho insurgents are supplies from the outsido Is certain; and that munitions of war are being smuggled Into the Islands In vary large quantities Is now almost tally established. Tho decision of the authorities to vigorously "prosecute a campaign against smugglers and smuggling comes none too .soon. la no other way can the outlaw bands now operating In the group be effectually suppressed. amtjsem:snts The Nelll aggregation of stars and will agan delight the lovers of the drama at the Hawaiian Opera House this evening, presenting "The Roval Box." which possesses In Ita novelty and gsneral charm much that will surprise and please.

A special to the Sun from Norfolk, Vasays: The $5,000,000 shipbuilding plant and dry docks which West Virginia capitalists propose to locate at Seawell's Point, near Norfolk, appear to be taking shape. A former Governor of West Virginia, G. W. Atkinson, and several other capitalists frpm that State, today inspected 1000 acres they hold an option upon, announced that they will buy the land. and. at a meeting here tomorrow of others interested, will probably arrange to begin work on the plant.

Notwithstanding their light weight, California outclassed Stanford In every play. Not once was thi California jroal In danger but Stan- ford'a territory was repeatedly Invaded. California relied upon mass formations, which they executed with rapidity. California was under the ball after each punt with telling promptness, while Stanford was extremely slow in starting after catching. The game was a great punting one. Stanford's line was vulnerable at every polnt and California made gains at ever)' attack. California relied chiefly on end runs, which, .however, were never long or spectacular. The lirst half was a fierce one. After each initial scilmmage men were laid out for several minutes. After th. first kick off Slaker. upon whom Stanford had placed her highest hopes, was badly stunned. For California, Captain Womble, Mini, Overall, Duden aud Moore played excellent football. Traegor, Clark and Slaker did most of the work for Stanford. The line-up was as follows. Stanford. California.

TIME IS MOT YET RIPE FOR GHaHSES BUSINESS IS NOW SUPPORTED BY STEADY AND VERY HEALTHY DEMAND. Nicaraguan Canal Route Will Be Chosen in Place of the Panama Concession Report on Pearl Harbor. From a Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Nov. S. The sugar interests of tbe country have heard with Joy that there Is to be no tariff tinkering during tho coming" session of Congress. President RoOseVelt, after conferring with the leaders of his party from all sections of the countrv, has flnallv decided that the time is not yet ripe for changes in the tariff system, through direct tariff, fefiislation. at least. There stifi remains, of course, tts possibility of reciprocity at some time Or another, ae article is attracting nvon thit svstfm of roduclns spread attention; because in some re- ..... .... ....... -- -i the tariff will not be put into effect during the ear thit is ahead of us. The reason for this decision is that the business of the country is booming as it never boomed before. I am just back from a bit of a trip into the Middle West. Even-where train? are late and traffic blocked from the glut of freight that is be'ng offered lor transportation. The like of it never wag seen before, even during the enormous boom that the country experienced last winter. They do not call It a boom. Nobody is trying to boom business. The business simply is rolling un under a steady and healthy demand. W'th these things in his mind the President has decided to, leave the tariff evidently alone for the time be" ing. There will be presented to Congress during the session a measure for reducing the internal revenue taxation the war taxes. so-called. Presumably most of these taxes, which are a nuisance, will be repealed, and In that wav the accumulation of nionev in the Treasury will be stopped. The only danger to busi ness that exists in the United States today is that there will be accumu lated bv the Trasurv so much ev that there will not be left a sufficient circulating medium for the transaction of business outside. Tnat can be avoided bv buying bonds, thus reducinjr the National debt, and bv stopping some of the internal rev enue taxes. The business men of the countrv are delighted with this decision by the President. It means that they will not be put into a state of uncertainty during the whole winter by a lot of tariff revision talk in Congress. The countrv never prospers when the tariff is being dallied with, because business men, in that event do not know where they are at Will Be Nicaragua Route. WASHINGTON. Nov. 9. President Roosevelt has had several Imnortant conferences lately with members of Congress who aie interested in the Nicaraguan Canal. As these letters have told, there has been talk during the entire summer about the possible construction of tho Panama canal. That talk will be stopped for good in a few days, and the President and Congress will proceed upon the correct assumption that the Nicaragua route offers the better advantages and is the only feasible one for tho United States,, The agent of the Panama company Is still in Washington dickering for the sale of that property to the United States, but he asks so much for it, and is so vague as to terms, that the whole matter will be dropped, and the Isthmian Canal Commission will recommend to Congress that the Nicara gua route be chosen, President Roosevelt will recommend the same thing. Reoort on Pearl Harbor. WASHINGTON. Nov. 9. The an-; nual report of the Bureau of Equipment and Repair. Navy Department, contains the following on the Naval Station in Hawaii: "No facilities for equipment or other work exist at the present naval station in Honolulu. As a coal depot It has been of the greatest value since the time of the late war. There Is storage accommodation for 20.000 tons of coal, and only moderate handling facilities. Two excellent wharves and two slips, capable of accommodating the heaviest draft ships have been fully completed during the present year, and have, during construction and since completion, been of much service both to naval vessels, army transports and merchant ships. "During the present year much thought and attention has been given to securing a good site for s, naval station at Pearl Harbor, just west of Honolulu on the same island. Oabu. This harbor constitutes the most available and iu fact the only good harbor In the Hawaiian group. Its importance was recognised by the last Con gress in its apropri.atioc of 5150.000 to acquire land for a naval station and harbor and channel defense. Efforts were made to obtain prices and op tions oa. the lands recommended as a site for the naval station from the owners, but entirely without success. Under Instroctioas from the Department, the acting; commandant of he naval station. Hawaii, was directed to institute proceedings In July in the proper court far th condemnation of about 8W acrrof land In and about 1 Pearl Harbor' necessary for the naval I station. It is believed that these f lands. If acquired, will furnish ade quale facilities for the development of a first-class naval station, and place the Government on a good footing for the repair and maintenance of all vessels coming or operating in central Faclfie waters." Insular Shipping. WASHINGTON. Nov. 5. The Commissioner of Navigation says In his aanual report made public today that the merchant shins of the United States have, during the year, reached a tonnage higher than ever before. The Commissioner says, in summarizing the returns: "Porto Rico appears in the returns' with 25 vessels of 3,237 tons, and Hawaii with 64 vessels of 3744S tons. In the Philipnines 2,340 vessels of 162.5S1 tons (of which 14? vessels of 43.59 tons are steam vessels) are under American protection. Until Congress has so enacted the Philippine vessels are not vessels of the United States." E. S. L. ESTIMATE OF ROOSEVELT. Conflict Between United States and Germany Impossible. BERLIN, Nw. 12. The National Zeltung publishes an article dealing with President Roosevelt as a man and a statesman. After giving a" just description of bis character and tastes, the article proceeds to forecast in a conservative way his relations with foreign countries, and particularly with Germany. "Mr. Roosevelt will be an American President." says tbe writer, "in the fullest sense of the word, without sentimentalism. and basing his course solely on American interests. A conflict with Germany at present is out of the question, but it m'ght spi'ng up if economical difficulties should widra." , ,. . .. . etiAfe if fc tO'firct rf ifre r.lrn33 ing with President Roosevelt to appear in Germany. -.- ' i Honolulu Man to Wed. MADISON (Wis), Nov. 8. L. Assistant Postmaster at Honolulu, arrived here yesterday to claim a Madison bride. Next Thursday he will be united in marriage to Miss Jessie Woodward, the daughter Qf Lestei Woodward, and they will leave at once for Hawaii. They met at Santa Cmz, Cal., where Miss Woodward has passed several winters with her family. A brother of "the bridegroom will come from Boston to act as best man. Blackmailers Bravely Foiled. Jean Valjean of Hugo's masterpiece stepped from heights won under a new name and proclaimed himself a felon to save another man from suffering in his stead. President R. F. Wolfe, of the Shoe Trust, prosperous for years in a new life in Ohio, lays bare to the world, that he may thwart a gang of blackmailing scoundrels, a page of his early manhood which includes a brief term in prison. Two fine exhibits of courage these, one in fiction, one in fact Mr. Wolfe's conscience made no coward of him. He expatiated his offense long ago. He did not propose to endure an endless expiation by persecution. His example should go far amon gthe myriad cases wherein blackmailers flourish today. He is a winner through his brave avowal not only in peace of mind and in pocket, but in public confidence nnd approval. Inevitably the Wolfe Incident brings a reminder of the case of Philip Moen, the barbed wire millionaire of Worcester, Mass., who was blackmailed for years by Levi Wilson, commonly- known as "Doc." and who died in 1S91 without revealing the secret upon which the blackmailer preyed. Wilson made his collections openly. They amounted to more than $500,000 and were spent in luxurious living. Afier the death of his victim, Wilson added Moen to his other names. "Because I was entitled to do it," he said, which was the nearest the mystery ever came to solution. Bernhardt's Criticism. Madame Sarah Bernhardt is coming forward as a reformer of the methods of official histrionic training. Herself an old pupil of the conservatoire, where she obtained a second prize for comedy In the Provost class of 1S62, she reverences that famous institution, nespite the criticism directed against it of recent years. "It is." s'he writes in a theatrical paper, "an Institution necessary for the preservation of dramatic art, but it is ill. it is ia a bad way, and must be. I reiormeu in a nun- ! ner." The terrible words written by the leading actress are: "II est de faire un boulevc rssment complet au conservatoire," Now for the reasons. In the first place, Madame Bernhardt tb'nks that there is excessive favoritism. Then the have too much "precocious Intimacy" with the public, tbe are not energetic or zealous enough, and ther are too manv Indiscretions committed by the press in connection with the conservatoire. The acress is especially hard on the professors, who. In her opinion are inclined to shirk their responsible work and to hand it over to deputies or understudies who have "no notion of art" and "no talent" This is i most torrib'e indictment aftr which. j the other Bernha'desoue objections are meek and mild. These refer to the indiscipline of tho pupils, who came to anvhow. if thev come at all. which some of them do riot, being, it appears, inc'ined to pls truant l'ke idle boys and girls at ordinary schools.
