has handed down two decisions in the
case of Fan Chung and Foon Wing,
who have been held under the Chinese
exclusion act. The court overruled the
point made by the atorney for the de

territory, and being British subjects,
they were not subject to the Chinese
exclusion act. It was held by Judge
Speer that the act affected a Chinese

prisoners will be deported."
Squadron Sails Again.
Toklo, June 18. (4 p. m.) The
Vladivostok squadron has disappeared
off the west coast of Aomorl prefec
ture. The Russians recently searched
two merchantmen, and to one of them
they transferred the Englishman taken
from the Japanese transport Sado.
They then permitted the vessels to
forth prolonged cheers from th mA
lcais, and there was an attempt to de
clare the nominations closed, which
brought forth cat-calls and hisses from
the ranks of the conservatives. Dele
gates sprang to their feet. The chair
In vain rapped for order. The police
finally quelled the disturbance and the
nominations continued. Another high
school delegate presented the name of
Winifred Hlggins. The convent nom
inated Mamie Shanahan. Shlvely
school nominated Maude Van Dusen:
Alderbrook presented the nnmp f

After the third ballot there wan a

decided that the name of Upshur
should be withdrawn and that the
Upshur delegates should Join the ranks
of the Gray followers, thereby electing
the compromise candidate. There were

Fort Stevens, still taking pictures at
a rate' that would make a war corre

men were having a good time, but they
went too far. Being Ignorant of the
