Sausalito. was suspended Passage on Record, ing she has been in a succession of terrific gales and high seas. About November 15 she was discovered to be leaking and the donkey engine was set to work to keep her free of water. After a few hours' pumping, the engine broke down and the water had to be controlled by the hand pump until a windmill was rigged up. During the lulls of the wind, which came at frequent Intervals, the crew had to stay at the pumps while the ship was tossed about by the waves, a continu ous rain pouring down at the same time. Owing to the tremendous swell running, the vessel strained a good deal. Her upper sails were carried away by the wind and blown Into shreds. for thirty days and that of Captain McKenzie, of the San Rafael, which expires on January 2d. was revoked. Ed. Anderson, Treasurer of the Sailors' Union of the Pacific and delegate from the Union to the Seamen's convention at Buffalo, is visiting a number of ports on the Atlantic Coast in the Interest of that organization.

CORRESrOXDBXCab WAILUKU, Dec. 27. The Omega arrived at Kahului on Thursday for orders. The tug Leslie Baldwin was sent out to her and she immediately proceeded to Honolulu. Tho schooner S. T. Alexander, Johnson. Is fully discharged of her Inward general cargo. She is now taking on sugar from tho different plantations and will sail the latter part of this week for San Francisco. It is not expected that she will carry a full cargo as the mills have only started to grind next year's crop of sugar. The schooner Manila is still discharging her nitrate cargo at Kahului. She will probably clear the latter part of this week or the early part of next week for British Columbia where she will take the balance of her nitrate cargo. She has about 750 tons of nitrates for KahuluL The barkentine Quickstep, Captain Mellin. Is still unloading her North- est lumber, and will probably be out the middle of next week. There are about 400 tons of scrap iron to be shipped by the Quickstep by Robert "VVinkleman. This scrap iron was purchased from the H. C. & S. Co. and j the Wailuku Sugar Co. From the latter firm the old mill at Walhee was purchased, and this as well as the Spreckelsville material will be shipped by the Quickstep to Tacoma. She will probably sail the latter part of next week.

Her cargo of lumber is held ac countable for her safe arrival off port. Arrangements are being made to make temporary repairs to allow the vessel to continue on her trip.

She is a full rigged ship built in 1S74 and is commanded by Captain Halstead. She Is a large carrier and has one of the biggest cargoes of lumber ever carried in a sailing vessel.

Senator Perkins has changed his mind regarding the introduction of a bill extending the coastwise navigation laws to the Philippines, to take effect not later than January 1. 1903. This was requested by the San Francisco local bodies, and Perkins was preparing to introduce a bill modeled after that which extended the coastwise laws to Hawaii. But he has discovered that the treatv with Spain provides for the open door in the Philippines and that the United States Is precluded for ten years from the date of the treaty from passing navigation laws discriminating in her own favor. NEGOTIATIONS ENOEO FOR DANISH ISLANDS WASHINGTON. Dec 16. -As a result of the negotiations that have been in progress between Secretary Hay and Mr. Brun, the Danish Minister, the last obstacles to the preparation of the treaty of cession whereby the United States will become possessed of the Danish West Indian Islands, have been removed. It Is said that the points of difference have been adjusted in a manner to insure the acceptance of the treaty by the United States Senate, and It is even possible that the convention may be laid before that body before the holiday recess. The decision of the Court in the insular cases made easier the preparation of the treaty on satisfactory lines, it is said. MAILS CLOSES G AIOXjTDAYFOR OTHER ISLA2sXS For Halawa, WaiUu Lahaina.
