FRUIT FOR FLEET.
Honolulu Donates Llborally to Officers
and Mon of LJuttloshlps.
Jloiiohilu, July 21. A feature of the
entertainment of the fleet Sunday was
the presentation of hundreds of tons of
fruit and delicacies of all kinds to the
various battleships. The great store of
good things was loaded on a lighter,
which was towed to each of the twelve
ships in turn, the Hawaiian band being
aboard also, and playing native and
American airs as the distribution pro
ceeded. A generous supply of iced fruit and
plenty of reading matter was'scnt to the
island, where t)50 men of the Nebraska
are in quarantine, the entertainment
committee being determined not to for
get any one.
Sunday has been a quiet day with the
men of the Atlantic battleship fleet. Out
side of the Star games, which took place
at the league ground, and which hun
dreds of sailors attended, there was little
in the way of formal entertainment ex
cept excursions to I'earl harbor, many
of t lie men taking advantage of the op
portunity to inspect the site of the naval
station that is being planned.
The officers were privately entertained
at many residences, and there was hard-
y one of the cool porches along the
strcefs of the residence district that did
not offer retreat to the white-clad vis
itors. The men, too, sought amusement
in many parts of the city and the streets
of the downtown section, as well as the
ree-shaded roads and lanes further out
were populous throughout the day with
groups of strolling seamen. On every
land they were welcomed by the citizens
and found hospitable entertainment
wherever they sought it.
Out on the ships, hundreds of visitors
were made welcome, and every yacht
and private launch in the bay was
pressed into service to carry parties of
plcasurc-scckcrs in and out among the

Sentiment Against Foreigners Is Rap
Idly Gaining Ground.
Mexico City, July 21. The anti-for
cign feeling in Mexico is assuming large
proportions, and a bitter controversy
over the question is being waged between
the foreign and native press. La Patria
printed an article in which it proclaims
the time ripe for a policy whose slogan
shall he, "Mexico for the Mexicans."
Mont of the tirade is directed against
the "Yankees," a term of contempt used
by Mexican editors in designating
Among other things J-a Patria de
clares that if Americans think the gov
ernments of Argentine, Chile or Brazil
more enlightened than that of Mexico,
they should journey to those parts, the
sooner the better.
After referring to the efforts on thr
part of the foreigners to kill the pro
posed new mining law restricting cor
notations in Mexico, the paper says:
Wc repeat our attitude toward tor-
ciKiicrs. Wc arc not uoxcrs, uut patri

Ctoveland Traction Company's Reports

Cleveland, "O., July 21. Cleveland has
had nearly three months of a-ccnt car
fares, and two of the monthly reports
have shown a deficit. A similar report
is predicted for July. The operating
expenses and fixed charges have been
from $10,000 to $50,000 a month in ex

Traction company, which is operating
the local lines under a lease, also is
under nromisc to give free transfers

the directors will be held next Tuesday
to consider the inauguration of free

Washington, July 25. Assistant

WIRELESS IN FAR NORTH.
Government Will Establish New Sta
tions in Alaska This Year. 4
Washington. Julv 23. There is
probability that, after all, wireless
stations at Nome and Fort Gibbons,
Alaska, will be established this year.
I lie chief siunal officer of the army
is advised that the steamer Ohio
reached Nome with her cargo in good
condition. The cargo includes equip
ment for the wireless station at Fort
Gibbons. As the equipment for the
Nome station was damaged by the
flooding of the hold of flic boat in
which it was shipped, it was feared
that it would be impossible to install
the Nome station this season, but now
t is believed that the working instru
ments can be got together to establish
the Nome station, and every effort
will be made to do so.
The war department is highly
pleased with the work done by the
wireless stations. It has just received
a report that the station on the Far-
ralloncs held communication with the
St. Louis for S3 hours outside of
Honolulu, 1,400 miles distant, her sig
nals coming in loud and clear. Sev

Washington, July 23. A national

measures arc to be urged by which
not only communities but whole states
will be enabled to rid themselves of

order to attain this end it is necessary
merely to adopt a few simple and
well-understood methods, the applica
tion of which may be entrusted to lo
cal hoards of healtli. Where the mos
quito is concerned, however, it is
deemed advisable that there should be
a general control by the state, be
cause of the fact that certain species
of these tuneful marauders are mi
gratory and liable to appear suddenly
in muiuuiuinous swarms in places iar
from their breeding areas, giving pro
found discouragement to local efforts

Railroad Companies Cannot Increase
Rates by Concerted Action.
Washington, July 20. The interstate
commerce commission may take action
on the increased freight rates agreed to
at the meeting of the Southeastern
rcight association and 'the Southeast
ern Mississippi Valley association, at
Louisville, Ky., Saturday, when the new
tariffs arc filed with the commission by
the roads having membership in these
two associations. Action cannot be
taken by the commission on its own in
itiative or on the complaints of ship
pers or shippers' associations. If the
nterstate commerce commission should
find that the increase in freight rates
was made through concerted action, and
that there was -evidence that the Sher
man anti-trust law was violated, atten
tion will in all probability be called to
In speaking of the powers of the in
terstate commerce commission where an
advance in freight rates has been made
oy any railroad, cnairman Jtuiapp, oi
the commission, said:
The railroads must file their tariffs
with the commission with 30 days' no
tice of a contemplated change. Changes
in rates between competitive points must
be made simultaneously by all the roads
operating between those points. This
in a measure protects the shipper. When
railroad files notice of an increase in
its freight rates the commission can on
its own motion make an investigation as
to the reasonableness of the advance.
"In a case where the commission acts
on its own motion, however, it cannot
issue an order. If a shipper makes a
complaint to the commission against a
railroad charging an unjust increase ot
rates, each side is given a hearing, and
the commission can then issue an order
based on its decision in the case.
Should it develop that the increase
was made through concerted action, the
commission would very likely refer the
matter to the attorney general. The
department of justice can also call upon
the commission to investigate as to the
reasonableness in rates.

Transcontinental Shippers Claim Rate
Ruling Fatal to Oriental Trade.
San Francisco, July 20. The South
crn Pacific and Sata Fe railroads and
the Pacific Mail Steamship company are
preparing to have a hearing before
tho interstate commerce commission on
the question of transcontinental rates
for goods shipped across the Pacific
ocean. The new rule of the commis
sion compels the railroads to charge the
same price for these goods as for any
other, whereas it had been customary
for the railroads to make this rate
cheaper to the steamship companies
ihe information that the interstate
commerce commission has decided to
postpone until Octobor the day on which
the rate would become effective, because
of a protest from Japan, has given the
railroads and steamship company time
The plea will be made to the inter
state commerce commission that steam
ers traveling through the Suez canal
will get the trade if the transcontinental
roads are not allowed to juggle rates
as they please. The steamers change
their rates often and quickly, they say,
and if the American railroads are com
pelled to adhere to the published rate
they will lose this oriental business.
