B. farad ford, chief of the bureau of equipment, show that tb Nero Drat proceeded directly to the Midway isl ands, sounding on the way And then aig-sagged Across the line to determine tre best polnu to locate the proposed cable.

Most of the Chinos born In the Islands have forsworn their allegiance to the emperor of China. They wear no oupue. and after living their lire here they have no desire that after. death their bodies should rest In the soil of the Flowery Kingdom. Chinos have Intermarried largely with the Tajtalos and Mestizos, and a a class the Chinese Mestizo have seem Ingly mor than held their own.
