mored cruiser squadron, consisting of
tha Colorado, West Virginia, Pennsyl

some time ago that the venaels should
rendezvous in Japanese waters, but In
asmuch aa the ships will coma to San
Francisco by way of Honolulu, they will
not go to Japan. The squadron will sail
from Cavlte about September 1.

constituents are permitted to see unless
they come east.
Contracts for nines.
The formation of another armored
cruiser squadron for the Pacific coast
has. already been announced. It will
comprise the Tennessee, Washington,

full amount appropriated by congress,
for fire control stations, submarine
mines and accompanying apparatus to
work them, and searchlights to be used
In connection with the coast defense of
the porta of the Vnlted States and Its
possession's. A larife portion of this
mney is to be expended around Man
Frnnclsco. The work of providing sub
marine mine defense for some ports Is
being pushed forward niplrlly on both
the Atlantic and Pa Iflc coasts.
The plans contemplate the aowlng of
mine fields on the Pik-IAc count In the
neighborhood of B in Francisco, at Forta

Chicago, July 10. One hundred and
sixty-three Chlcagoans, among them
nine women, have been called upon by
the United States government to show
that they are not anarchists, possible

of organised government. Unless they
prove that they are not enemies of the
government, they will be stripped of

Disregarding the request of the city
council to withhold letting of contracts
for street Improvement In the Irving
ton district, which haa been in contro
versy between the bltullthlo and asphalt
Interests for some time, the executive
board yesterday awarded six streets to
the Warren Construction company,
agents for bltullthlo pavement This is
a signal victory for the bitulithic peo
jle In the paving war which has been
waged between the two firms, aa It
removes the principal weapon from the
hands of the asphalt converts uni
formity. 1
Both sjM ronght Said.
Both aides have made a determined
fight to gain control of the paving
work of the twenty or more streets In
the district which are to be Improved
with hard-surface pavement. First It i
was a conflict between the bitulithic
and the bituminous macadam interests,
the latter being led by Ellis O. Hughes.
Hughes later switched to the asphalt
pavement and haa supported that im
provement In recent meetings of tho
council street committee.
In the last meeting of the committee
Hughes succeeded In getting a recom
mendation for tha rescind m en t of all of
the work heretofore done by the council
for the Improvement of the district.
This meant that both bltullthlo and
bituminous macadam were to be ousted
from consideration and supplanted by
asphalt. Hughes promised to have over
two-thirds of the property owners in
the district sign for asphalt
However, an obstruction beset the
path of the 'asphalt people In the shape
of Councilman. Vaughn, and after an ar
dent speech trie latter was successful In
getting the question referred to the
committee on streets, whence It came.
Had the council voted for reaclndment I

unable to award the contracts, but In
referring It to the committee a hole was
left open for this action.

A request was made the executive
board to refrain from letting the con
tracts until the street committee could
make further Investigation, but the ex
ecutive board members could see no rea
son for this action, Inasmuch as the re
quest contained no argument In favor of
delay. C. A. Coggsvell thought the
matter ought to be referred to the ex
ecutive street committee, but his fel
low members were averse to doing this
and voted to award the contracts.

which had, been advertised and made
ready for improvement at this time, and
which were awarded yesterday. The

tage of, the board members sav. and
no delays must be countenanced un
less the cauaes are good.
Talked to the Board.
R. W. Montague, representing the
Warren Construction company, talked
briefly to the board and explained tha
situation from the beginning, showing
that two-thirds of the property owners
In the district wanted bltullthlo pave
ment. He suggested that the petitions
presented by the people favoring bitu
minous macadam and later, asphalt
should not be considered, alleging as a
reason that the title vested in them.
George W. Simons, representing the
Pacific Bridge company, urged that the
Improvement be begun at once. He
stated that hla company had contracted
for dirt from these streets to fill por
tions of Vancouver avenue and delav In
starting them would mean loss of
money to his company.
Upon complaint of Mrs. Millie R.
