The Surprise, which was engaged in

the IB Annamese comprising the crew,
loot their lives as a rasult.
Only Masts Left Protruding.
The customs launch Argus, while en
gaged on the same service, passing In
the neighborhood noticed the tops of
two masts protruding from the water.
The launch approached and picked, up
some floating objects, tables, chairs,
etc.. which were identified as belonging
In the Surprise, and left no doubt that
this was the vessel lying at the bottom
of the sea.
Three Bodies Recovered.
Shortly afterwards" Captain Coulon. of
the Argus, continuing his search In the
vicinity, picked up the bodies of three
native sailors belonging to the Surprise

ft is supposed that the Surprise. Tying
before the typhoon, was caught by a
side wave, which must have burled her
completely, sinking her In a few moments.

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington. Nov. . If Joseph G. Cannon falls
of re-election as Speaker of the House of
Representatives, and some prominent
member of the anti-Cannon faction Is
chosen to succeed him. there will prob
ably be a complete readjustment of the

Repetition of Ciar Rule.
This "Big Five" has had little regard
for the individual rights of members;
It has had little regard for the wishes
of a great majority of the House. With
the co-operation of the committee on
lea. It has mapped out tne legislative
campaign of the House, and by sheer
force, has nut through the programme
over the protests of members entitled to be
heard. With one of this hunch In tne
Speaker's chair, the same tactics would
be pursued In the next congress as in
the present and past Congresses, and the
Individual member would be as much a
"two spot" as ever.
But the men who are fighting Cannon
are ahxfous to get one of their own
number In the Speaker'a chair, so that the
Big Five" can be wiped out. and a new
governing body be organised. And If
Representative Burton, of Ohio, or any
other anti-Cannon man should be ehoBen
Speaker, It would very soon become ap
parent that Messrs. Cannon, Payne., Dal
sell and Tawney would be deprived of
the right to dictate. This power, to a
limited extent, might be conferred upon
others, but it would go to men of the
opposing faction to the Insurgents.
Cannon, as speaker, very naturally
placed the best chairmanships In the
House in the hands of his friends. If
Cannon Is defeated by an Insurgent,
Payne will no longer be chairman of the
ways and means committee, Dalzell will
no longer hold his membership on the
committees on rules and ways and means;
Tawney will be relieved of appropriations,
and Alann will fall to go on the steering
committee. Other Cannon supporters
holding good chairmanships would find
themselves dispossessed, their places being
given to men opposed to tyrannical rule
of the House of Representatives.
The Cannon men, and the chairmen ap
pointed by Cannon, are well aware of the
situation, and for that reason they will
be found actively campaigning for Cannon
when Congress comes together next
month. They will fight for Cannon not so
much because of their love or admira
tion for the Speaker, but because of their
desire to save themselves to save the
choice appointments which they received
at the hands of Cannon, and which they
cannot again receive If Cannon Is de
throned. And this very organization, led
by the "Big Five. or "Big Four" as
I: became when Sherman resigned to run
for Vice-President, will be one of the
ma'n supports upon which Cannon will
depend In his campaign for re-election to
Sherman Wanted to Be Speaker.
The mention of Sherman recalls the
fact that Sherman, had he not resigns!
from the House to accept the Vice-Presidency,
would have been a very llke'y
candidate for Speaker In case It becomes
Impossible to re-elect Cannon. Sherman'
was a candidate for Speaker when Hen
derson was chosen; he was also & candi
date when Cannon was first elected, and
among the varied aspirants he was per
haps the best qualified. Therefore, had
he not accepted the Vice-Presidential
nomination, he might today be very clos-
to the Speakership of the House, and
there is not the slightest doubt but what
he would much prefer the Speakership to
the Vies- Presidency. -
But it is everlastingly too late for Sher
man to become Speaker. The opportunity
will never again be presented to liim.
When he reflects upon "what might have
been" It must depress him considerably.
And he win have abundant time for re
flection while presiding over the Senate,
without "a voice, without a vote, without
the slightest Influence over the delibera
tions of that body. How much bigger he
would be presiding over the other house,
at the other end of the Capitol.

NIPPON YUSEN KAISHA BEGINS

VICTORIA, B- C, Nov. 8. (Special.)
The Nippon Yusen Kalsha has de

Canadian Pacific Railroad for the pre

the North Pacific
Since the ruling of the Interstate
Commerce Commission. by whli;h
ship companies advanced their rates,
the lines connecting with United States
railroads, and more particularly those
under the United States flag, were
placed at a disadvantage. The Can

advantage of Its position and declined
to advance its freight rates.
.Wliea the conference at Seattle de
cided to increase the rates, the pro
posed Increases were cabled .to-Japan,
where a meeting of Japanese shipping
companies was called. Advices re
ceived by the Royal Mail Steamship
Empress of India were to the effect
that the Nippon Tusen Kaisha with
drew from this conference and has
made a general reduction of about 17
per cent lower than the former freight
rates. The Japanese steamship com
pany proposes to bear the burden of
the increased railway charges and will
give a lower rate across the Pacific.
A reduction of 25 cents per 100 pounds
will be made on silk and other valuable
The Intention of the Nippon Yusen
Kaisha Is to Issue through bills of lad
ing at the present "rates on certain
goods. Including steam and rail transit,
and to' take upon its own shoulders
the increase In the American rail rate.
On other goods the Increased rail rate
will be partly counterbalanced by re
ductions In the steamer transport. For
example, the rate' on tea is to be re

In an interview today, "and the North
