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 anchored warships.

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 Americans. 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 ots, and when wc take a given decision wc take it, not as against foreigners, but for the benefit of Mexico." LOSE UNDER 3-CENT FARE.

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 eral messages were received and transmitted. War on House Fly. Washington, July 23. A national campaign against the house fly and mosquito has been planned and is about to be begun by the government bureau of insects, ft will cover the entire country, and in its prosecution measures arc to be urged by which not only communities but whole states will be enabled to rid themselves of these deadly enemies of mankind. In 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 lowaru extermination.

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 the matter. 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. PACIFIC COAST LOSER. Government Accepts Montana, Washington. Tulv 22.

RACIIIN KHAN NOW A FUGETIVE Artillery Captured and Reactionary Leaders Seek Asylum With Russian Cossack Guards. St. Petersburg, July 21. A dis patch from Tabriz, by courier post to Julfa. affirms that the shah's cause in northern Persia is lost. The artillery and ammunition which were abandoned by Rachin Khan, who was commander-in-chief of the troops during his flight from Tabriz, passed into the hands of the revolu tionists, who are now in full posses sion of the city.

Fohitinoff, have gain retired to the consul s country villa outside the city, which is being guarded by a large detachment of cossacks. The casualties resulting: irom the recent bombardment and fighting between the troops and rev olutionists were slight. 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 to act. 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.
