Gal'inger Reviews Conditions Un
der Which Ships Operate.
RAISES NO NEW ISSUE
It Leaves Existing Steamship Services
Exactly aa They Are NowOnly
Eight of the Fifteen Sblpa That Ply
, the Pacific Are Left i
WASHINGTON, Feb, 24,-Speak
Ing in favor of the passage of the
ocean mail subsidy bill in the Senate
today, Senator Callinger reviewed
conditions under which the merchant
marine of this country is operating,
ami cited many advantages that' he.
believes will accrue to the commer
cial intercuts of the United States if
better mail service to South America
and other points is established.
"The bill raises no new issue, intro
duces no new principle, . said Mr. Gal
linger. "It leaves existing and pro
spcctlve Meamihlp services exactly as
they are now1, and without changing
one iota the tried and approved meth
ods of the present law, increases the
compensation on routes which 16
years of experience have, conclusively
proved to 'be Inadequate the long,
costly and, important routes to South
America and ' the Orient, the routes
where our lack of steamship service
is severest and our need. of such. ser
vice most imperative.
Only eight of fifteen ships that
were plying across the Pacific Ocean
last March are left, he said.
"Since the shipping bill of the last
Congress was defeated almost one'
half of our feeble . American-Pacific
naval reserve has disappeared," he
added, "and when Admiral . Evans
steers up through the Golden Gate
from the Straits of Magellan, we shall
have the grotesque disproportion in
the Pacific of two battleships to every
commercial vessel engaged in foreign
trade sight which has never yet
been seen beneath the sun.
"And unless the new shipping bill
is speedily passed , we snail tee an
even more grotesque disproportion
than that 16 battleships and not one
commercial steamer in the Pacific
away from the ports of the United
States. For the remnant of merch
ant marine in that mighty ocean is
now facing the absolute extinction
which long since overtook our com
mercial fleet on the routes to South
Only J4.00.000 a Year.
The passage of this bill, he predic
ted, will revive the waning American
marine and all that the bill seeks can
be accomplished for $4,000,000 a year.
It would strengthen the Pacific lines
and .create new lines to the Southern
Hemisphere. -It would, he said,
promptly establikh a line from the
Atlantic Coast to Brazil and another
to Argentina, a line from the South
Atlantic or Gulf Coast to South
America, and similar communication
to the Pacific Ocean. 1
Tht proposed payment for these
dvantages is about half the amount
England and , France pay for their
stcamhsip service and less than is
paid by Japan, Last year the United
States made a profit of $3,600,000 on
ts carriage of foreign mails, and he
lipped to have at least that amount
cvoted to building up the foreign
In view of these facts," he said,
need we wonder that in spite of the
Monroe Doctrine we are being shoul
dered out of the South American re
publics by other people whose gov
ernments understand the relation be-
ween ships and trade? Great Brit-
ian, France, Germany, Italy and Spain
have long had their own steamshio
lines to South American markets.
Japan had no sooner closed her vic-
torous war with Russia than she sub
sidized into existence a steamshio
line across the Pacific to Peru and
Chile, and our Consuls note that this
is about to be extended to Argentine
and Brazil, , What a mockery of fate
is that the people of a hermit na
tion, which the United States 60 years
ago first opened and introduced to
the modern world, should now be
able to boast better, more regular
and more direct shipping facilities
than .America. The most smarting
and humiliating episode of the entire
year is the revelation which the great
battleship fleet is bringing out around
outh America. , s I

MAGIC MIRRORS. , ,
Peculiar Effaote In tome f the Pel
Isbee Brenss Refltetore.
Now and then mirrors of a curious
kind are aeon In Europe. They are
called "manic mirrors" end are of Jat
aneae origin, made not of glass silver
ed, but of cast bronze, polished on tbe
face and bearing on the, back raised
patterns. Inscriptions, symbolical do-
Signs, crests or pictures, when ex
posed to a bright beam of light from
the aun or from an electric lamp they
reflect in the light from their polished
face the Image of tbe pattern on their

baa of course nothing in common with
the fortune telling magle crystals of
the astrologer, (or the alleged magic
mirrors or necromancy, yet tt long puz
sled the scientific optician and even
now H llttlQ known or believed. Tbe
researches of various scientific men
have established the fact that tbe phe
nomenon Is due to very minute differ
encee of curvature In the polished face,
differences so minute that they do not
affect the ordinary use of the mirror
as a looking glass and that can be de
tected only by delicate optical tests.
The only remaining mrstcnr bss
been as to bow these delicate differ
encee of curvature were produced In
exact correspondence to tbe pattern on
tbe back. Tbe makers themselves are

is" to learn m to the 'relative standing: and reliability of the . leading manufactur
ers of medicinal agents, as the most eminent physicians are the moat careful as to
the uniform quality and perfect purity of remedies prescribed by them; and it is well
known to physicians and the Well-informed generally that the California. Fig Syrup
Co., by reason of its correct methods and perfect equipment and tbe ethical character of
its product has attained to the high standing in scientific and commercial circles which
is accorded to successful and reliable houses only, and, therefore, that tbe name of the.
Company haa become a guarantee of the excellence of its remedy.
" TRUTH AND QUALITY
appeal to the Well-Informed in every walk of life and are essential to permanent sue-.
cess and creditable atanding, therefore we wish to call the attention of all who would
enjoy good health, with its blessings, to the fact that it involves the question of right
living with all the term implies. With proper knowledge of what is best each hour
of recreation, of enjoyment, of contemplation and of effort may be made to contribute
to that end and tn use ol pedigiqes dispensed with generally to great advantage, but
as in many Instances a simple, wholesome remedy may be invaluable if taken at the
proper time, the California Fig Syrup Co, feels that it is alike important to present
truthfully the subject and to supply the one perfect laxative remedy which has won
the appoval of physicians and the world-wide acceptance of the Well-Informed because
of the excellence of the combination, known to all, and the original method of manufac
ture, which is known to the California Fig Syrup Co. only. - f s ' ' ;
V This valuable remedy has been long and favorably known under the name of
Syrup of Figs and has attained to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of
family laxatives, and as its pure laxative principles, obtained from-Senna, are well
known to physicians and the Well-Informed of the world to be the best of natural
laxatives, we have adopted the more elaborate name of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of
Senna as more fully descriptive of the remedy, but doubtless it will always be
called for by the shorter name of Syrup of Figs and to get its beseficial effects always

NEW ASH EXPELLER.
A new way of disposing of the
large amount of ashes and clinkers
which materializes every day in the
stoke-hole of a ship has been found
a machine, which expels the ashes
and clinkers straight down through
the bottom of the ship instead of
from the side, says Popular Mechan
ics for March.
The underline cxpcller, which is
riven oy air motor, eliminates an
these disadvantages. The machine
is absolutely silent in its workings,
all its parts are at all times accessible
for .examination and the ashes are
projected with sufficient Velocity to
carry them deep enough to clear all
suctions. The article is illustrated.
