THRO' GOLDEN GATE'
MARCH OF MEN OF FLEET.
Big Battlaslilp Fleet Completes
13,000 Mile Cruise.
BILIS BLACK WITH HUMANITY
Practically Every First Class W rshlp
in Amsrlcan Navy Anchored
In Spacious Harbor.
San Francisco, May 7. Through
the towering portals, of the Golden
Gate heavy laden with the romance
of centuries into the harbor of the
city of a hundred hills; into a new
San Francisco risen from the ruins of
two years ago, the Atlantic battleship
fleet steamed yesterday in review of
a multitude unnumbered. It was the
same imposing pageant of immaculate
white ships that sailed from Hampton
Roads nearly five months ago in the
wake of the President's flag, but with
the splendid accomplishments of a
record-breaking cruise of more than
13,000 miles and three weeks of won
derful target work behind it.
Yesterday the white - anchored,
four-starred blue flag of the Secretary
of the Navy, flying from the main of
the trim little gunboat Yorktown,
fluttered the welcome of the Nation.
while the Governor of California, the
Mayor of San Francisco and the peo
ple of 100 or more towns and cities
voiced the greetings of the. enthusi
The exciting thrill of possible ad
venture lurk'ng on the dimly distant
horizon which marked the departure
of the fleet from its Eastern base was
gone, but there was still the satisfy
ing sense of preparedness which trav
els with this self-reliant force of fight
ing vessels and the manifest pride of
nearly 1,000,000 residents of the great
western country who gazed for the
first time upon a column of first-class
Once inside the entrance to the
bay, the heavy vessels of the Eastern
Coast were joined by the armored
cruisers of the entire Pacific fleet, and
the Navy of the Nation all save a
few newly-commissioned or reversed
ships on the Atlantic and some pa
trol boats scattered in the Orient
joined in a parade, which for- im
pressive beauty and strength of fight
ing timber has never been equaled.
Forty-four vessels, ranging from the
16,000-ton Connecticut and the five
sisters of her class, down to the tiny
torpedo boats no larger than a rac
ing launch, passed through the har
bor to the anchoraee south of the
Market-street ferry terminals, where,
outlined in the fire of their electric
illuminations, they lie in four long
lines awaiting the review of Secre
tary Metcalf on Friday morning.
The parade and maneuvers of an
choring occupied fully four hours of
time and gave to the people who
made blark the hills of the city, the
islands of the harbor, housetops and
mountain heights twenty miles' away,
the most wondrous naval spectacle
they have ever known. For, after all,
whatever may be the elaborate festi
vals planned ashore in welcome of
the fleet, the ships themselves, steam
ing along in varying formations,
really present the picture that is most
beautiful to see.
Harrlman Declares It Will Be Higher
Rates or Lower Wages.
Chicago, May 7. The rate war
which is raging between the railroads
and the shippers promises to be a bit
In Chicago the fight against the ad
vance in freight rates will be fought
principally by the Chicago Associa
tion of Commerce, which represents
nearly all the commercial interests in
the city. The organization will hold
a meeting today to plan opposition
to the increase in the East at once,
and to pave the way for similar action
when the rates go up all over the
country. . ,
It is said that E. H. Harnman de
clares it is either a case of boosting
rates or cutting the salaries of the
railroad employes. The railroads fig
ure that the increase, under the pres
ent tonnage, will net them $200,000,
000. Troops Scare Insurgents.
Lima, May 7. Closely pursued by
government troops, the insurgents
who rose last week at Chosica and
neighboring towns and who are un
der the leadership of Dr. Durand, are
retiring into the interior. It is
rumored here that a revolution is in
progress in Cuzco, the capital of the
.department of that name, and that the
insurgents hold the city government
and have seized the arms and ammu
nition of the rifle clubs. Cuzco is an
inland region east of the Andes, and
has a population of 30,000.

London, May 7. A dispatch to the

the first reading last month and which
the government is understood to de
sire to have constructed speedily.
Rockefeller's agents offer to complete
the railway in five years, to use only

Departure Is Delayed.
Washington, May 7. A change in
the order governing the movement of
the Pacific fleet, commanded by
Rear-Admiral Dayton, was announced
at the Navy Department yesterday,
by the operation of which the vessels

May 15, when they will sail for a
southern cruise. j

COAL IS WASTED.
Officers of Federal Survey Discover
; Valuable Fuel Is Left.tSS
Washington, May 8. Coal valued at
$200,000,000 is being wasted every year
through improper mining methods. It
is estimated by officers of tho Federal
Geological Survey that tho loss repro

amount would supply tno country for
six months. The coal is worm ui icus.
