etty officers on the receiving ship
Hancock, stationed at the Brooklyn
aavy yard, have been selling ratings or
promotions to sailors for cash. The
reports were started by bluejackets,
who talked freely of the matter ashore.
When the commissioned officers on the
ship and in the navy yard heard of
these reports they reported it to the
navy department and a board was de
tailed to Investigate the rumors.

peared on the Hancock. It was said

GROWERS' ASSOCIATION FAILS.
Fresno Raisin Men Unable to Get To
gether This Year.
Fresno, Cal, Aug. 2. After two
months of strenuous effort to get the
Raisin Growers' Association through,
President R. K. Madsen has abandon
ed an efforts to preserve the associa
tion and1 announced that all contracts
so far signed would be returned. This
baa been brought about by the failure
ef the association to reach an agree
ment with the packers and growers
to Join the association. Every grower
In the valley must now do the best
be can for himself without aid from
any organization whatever. It is be
lieved that the result will be the fail
ure of many raisin growers.
The association has been in ex
istence for six years and has handled
about three million dollars' worth of
raisins a year, representing 75,000
acres of grape land. The low price of
raisins last year caused the downfall
ef the association.
At the beginning of the season this
year there still remained on hand 2000
cars of last year's crop. This fact,
with an outlook for a poor season this
year, seemed to cause a loss of faith
In the association. But 23,700 acres
f the 75,000 acres were signed up this
year. The association will remain in
existence this year only long enough
to dispose of the hold-over crop. An
other attempt to revive it will be made
aext year.

Butchers' Strike Working Great Hard

Chicago, Aug. 2. One of the seri
ous questions which "confronts the

fish, which was only about two lengths
away from the sloop. In Its flurry the
fish made a break for the dory and
