Battleship Fleet Coming to
LOEB ANNOUNCES FACT
First Statement From President
Abont Voyage Metcalf Free
From Criticism Japan Has
Made 3o Protest.
OYSTER BAT, Aug. 1. Secretary
Loeb said today that there had been
no change in the plans to send the At
lantic battleship fleet to the Pacific
Ocean, and that the necessary prepara
tions for the trip are now being made
by the Navy Oepartment. Upon their
completion and approval by the Pre
ldent. the voyage will be begun when
the President gives the word.
Mr. Loeb made this statement inci
dentally by saying that there was no
foundation for the report that Secre
tary Metcalf had been or would be
asked to resign from the Cabinet be
cause of his announcement that the
fleet would be In San Francisco har
bor In the near future. Mr. Loeb
said there was no reason for criticism
of Mr. Metcalf on account of his an
nouncement. Mr. Loeb's statement
that the fleet will go to the Pacific
is regarded here as significant, as be
ing the first direct announcement to
that effect made at Oyster Bay.
Xo Protest From Japan.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 1. No protest
has "been received from the Japanese
Government against the plan to send
the Atlantic battleship fleet to the Pa
cific and none is expected. It is pointed
out there that no basis exists for
protest or complaint, as the fleet is to
remain in American waters.
TJSUAL DEFICIT FOR JLLY
But Revenue From AH Sources
Shows Large Increase.
WASHINGTON. Aug. 1. The com
parative monthly statement of the
Government's receipts and expenditures
Issued today shows that for the month
of July, 1907, the total receipts were
$55,906,465 and the disbursements 166',
S13.345. leaving a deficit for the month
of about $11,000,000. This deficit is
explained by the fact that at the be
ginning of each fiscal year nearly all
the appropriations made by the last
session of Congress become available
and large sums are immediately with
drawn from the treasury. It is a rule,
with hardly an exception, that each
July shows a deficit. A year ago It
was about $163,500,000.
The receipts from customs last
month amounted to $28,836,44!!. which is
nearly $2,700,000 In excess of July, 1906;
Internal revenue $22,840,304, increase
$738,000. Miscellaneous $4,229,712, In
The expenditures for July. 1907, ag
gregate almost exactly $1,000,000 more
than for July, 1906, the reductions be
ing balanced by nearly $4,000,000 in
crease account construction of Panama

acted upon the findings and recommen
dations of the board which investigated
the accident on the battleship Oeorgla

mendations, most of which have here
tofore been published, were approved
by Mr. Newberry, who has ordered
them put Into effect. The Navy De
partment la now convinced that the
cause of the accident was beyond ques
tion a "Bareback," which It regards as

tions. SEW CRUISER IX COMMISSION
California Enters Navy and Will
Join Pacific Squadron.
VALLEJO, Ca!., Aug. 1. With appro
priate ceremonies, the new cruiser Cali
fornia, recently completed, was placed In
commission shortly before noon today.

mand the cruiser, made a brief speech

by the raising of the flag over the war
ship, which Is the finest vessel that ever
came to this yard.
The California was built by the Union
Iron works, but was turned over to the

Middies Put on Torpedo-Boa ts.
WASHINGTON. Aug. 1. Orders issu
ing from the Navy Department today
show that a number of midshipmen
have been placed on torpedo-boat duty.

showing that the Navy is deficient as
compared with foreign navies In torpedo-boat
work. There are 60 torpedo
boats of various types In our Navy,
yet only 16 of them are In active serv
ice. This has been caused by the
shortage of officers, resulting from the
heavy demands for such officers for
the new battleships going Into com
mission. Troops Start for Philippines.

panies of the Twenty-ninth Infantry left

drugs In Seattle stores and will send sam
ples either to San Francisco or Washing

first investigation of food products and
drugs the Government has made here
since the National pure food act became

MacDonald was ordered here without
warning and both grocers and druggists
were taken unawares. There is consider
able uneasiness, for the National In
spector will not give any information of
the result of his visit.
It was expected the State Pure Food
Commissioner would co-operate with the
Federal authorities, since the last Legis
lature passed an Sxact duplicate of the
Federal act as a state statute. National
authorities have been disappointed as a
result of the state's inactivity.

written to President Roosevelt against
territorial government, but Hoggatt' s
managers sent word Into the Yukon

November Republican Convention to
name National convention delegates not
to oppose a territorial plank.
When Fairbanks heard of the awson

Miners Adopt Novel Method of Self
Protection In Minnesota.
DULUTH, Minn., Aug.' 1. Working
men employed at the Fayal Mine to
day carried babies In their arms when
on their way to work. The infants
were kept at the mines all day by the
men as a" source of protection against
any possible violence. It was eppar-ently-their
belief that the strikers or
any one else would not attempt to do
any harm while the children were In
the danger zone. The mothers of the
children met the fathers when the
day's work was done.
Although hundreds of men are go
ing to work daily they cannot be per
suaded that the police protection fur
nished Is adequate to the case and some
of them are very much frightened. The
city is apparently on the verge of the
worst trouble of the strike, If rumors
are to be believed.

and did not make fools of themselves or
declare war, and the questions were de
cided by the Supreme Court and no bad
results followed. If all state authorities
are going to usurp functions of the Su
preme Court and judge what Federal act
shall be nullified, no one can tell where
It will end.
"Why should state authorities decide
they shall exercise every power at their
command to prevent auch consummation?
This is an unlawful attempt to oppose
"This talk about state authorities re
sisting Federal power by armed force
will sooner or later end in bloodshed,
possibly In the disruption of the Union."
In conclusion, Mr. Jenkins says the Su
preme Court of the United States may err,
H may differ with the views of a great
majority of the people, but however that
may be, the Constitution says Its decision
is nnal, and must be regarded as the su
preme law of the land, and that is what
must govern us.
"Better live under a wrong decision than
amidst anarchv that must prevail in this
country If each state authority Is going
to disregard the Constitution of the Unit
ed States and assert its own power, right
or wrong, in defiance of the National pow
er, thereby weakening and absolutely dis
regarding this great Government, that
has cost so many generations so much to
make and preserve."
