It Is the Opinion that the Behring: Sea.
. Close Season Bill Will Not Phi.
Washington, May 29. Although it
is the belief of the officers of the state
and treasury departments that sufficient
time yet remains in which to pass the
bill to be introduced into parliament
Monday to declare a clo.se season in the
Behring sea, others say that the effort
now being made was begun too late
This, opinion is largely based on Can
adian opposition and ' the possibility
that Canadian influence may be strong
enough to delay parliament's actions.

REPORT ON THE VESUVIUS.
Appliances About the Guns Crude, and
Washington, May 27. The report ' of
the naval board on the test of the Vesu
vius' guns is made Duhlic When the
i board met May 14,' it-found "thegnns
wouia not oe rangea ana no appliances
for sighting were fitted. Temporary
sights were rigged. Accuracy of fire of
the starboard gun under the conditions
was considered good, but the valves of
the middle and port guns were not in
good working order. The effect of a
moderate sea and wind upon the effic
iency of the guns and their range was
very slight. Generally speaking, the
vessel, as a gun platform, behaved very
satifactorily. Many details concerning
steering gear and conning the tower
could be much improved;. . . .
' As to the natural efficiency of the Ves
sel for offensive purposes ;he, board . has
little data on which to base . an opinion.
Or) May 20, three shots were fired at a
target towed by the Gushing, at a speed
of ten knots across the line of fire, the
Vesuvius steaming seventeen knots.
One of these would undoubtedly have
struck the vessel. This is considered a
favorable showing under the circum
stances. The board considered the
fittings and appliances for loading and
firing the guns very .crude and capable
of great improvement. The board
recommends that the guns should be
carefully ranged ; also various modifica
tions of defects found, and the depart
ment has directed the board to recon
vene and submit a detailed programme
for further tests.
. LOTTERY LAW EVASION.
Treasury Department Puts a Stopper in
Washington, May 27. The treasurv
department is still struggling to prevent
the sale of lottery tickets in the United
States. The law passed by congress pre
vented the use of the United States mails
in distributing them, and then the lot
tery people went to Mexico and sought,
under the custom law", to import them
into this country as reading matter, at a
jight duty. Assistant Secretary Spauld
ing put a stop to this by assessing duty
on the face value of -the tickete, the dutv
being placed at $2.50 on a ten dollar
ticket. This was thought to be a final
stoppage on their importation. The lot
tery people, fertile in resource; have had
the tickets printed in the United States,
exported into Mexico and reim ported
into the United States, and now slaiui
that they are exempt from duty, as
American manufacture, returned with
out being advanced in value or improved
in condition. Assistant Secretary
Spanieling, however, has instructed col
lectors of customs along the Mexican
border to assume that all lottery tickets
entered are of foreign manufacture, and
to assess duty accordingly.
New York "Recorder" to Suspend.
New Yobk, May 27. Rumors are cur
rent in newspaper circles that the Re
corder, the new morning paper which
was started with flying colors, paying
large salaries and spending large amounts
in lavish advertising, is about to suspend
publication. .It is said that the million
aire cigarette men who have been back
ing the paper are sick of the experiment,
which, it is alleged, was a losing venture
from the start. The failure of John H.
Starin, another big backer, to furnish
help is given as the real cause of the
suspension. It is even said the Recorder
will not appear after next Saturday.
WAXAMAKElt OIK Fill UNO.
He IJally Crown More Knt liuxlHxtic Over
the Great and Growing West.
Washington, Mav 27. Although
Postmaster-General Wanamaker will
not discuss the San Francisco ostoffice
site lie is always anxious to talk about
his Pacific coast trip. In an interview
he paid :
"I thought I knew something of the
growing countries leforo I net my face
toward the petting sun, but I found be
fore I got to San Diego that the west was
doing more than I conceived. Before we
got on the Union Pacific road to return
and after we had spun around Washing
ton state I was amazed. The west must
have better mail facilities, faster mails,
more of them and better ioHtoffice facili
ties. How quickly they make a big citv
in the west, with line buildings, large
factories and beautiful streets and all
that pertains to a metropolis ! There,
are no signs of hard times out there.
Everything is progress and enterprise.
What nerve the people show, what profit
their real estate yields."
Mr. Wanamaker has been booming the
west and the Pacific coast in this manner
everv dav since his return.
THE ELUSIVE ITATA.
Charleston at Callao, but the Other
Vessel Was Not Seen.
Washington, May 28. The navy de
partment today received the first' news
from the Charleston since she left Aca
pulco, the first of last week, in continued
pursuit of the Itata. When the vessel
failed to touch nt Panama within the
time expected, the department said it
j was very probable it bad been decided
to Keep straight on down the coast, and
that the Charleston wovld be heard from
at some Peruvian port. This prediction
is fulfilleJ, for the port at which the
Charleston announced her arrival is Cal-
I lao. - The whereabouts of the Itata are

" cw uuma lacing Aiiunu ,iu) uciorts, tur
Captain Remy reported he had seen
nothing of the Itata in the. cruise down
the coast. The Charleston will ioin the
I squadron under Admiral McCann in
tinman waters, and it is surmised a re
port will at no very distant date come
thence, announcing the peaceful surrend
er by the insurgents of the elusive craft
which the United States government will
libel and perhaps forfeit for violation of
Chinese Dens Raided.
Washington, May 27. When China
town was raided here last night
Califdrnians in Washington were vividlv
reminded of scenes on the Pacific coast.
It is not generally known, but it is a fact
that Washington city itself, the Athens
of America, has a Chinese quarter that
exists under the very shadow of the
capitol. It is only five or six squares
from the capitol building, south of Penn
sylvania avenue, in that quarter of town
frequented by all kinds of low people,
and some sights are quite as disgusting
as anjr to be seen in Chinatown in San
Franciscc. There are nearly 100 Chinese
here, according to the police census,.'.
The Star tonight devotes a column to the
scenes in Chinese quarters at last night's
raid, and, strangely enough, everybody
seems to be as greatly interested as if
the fact of such dens being among them
was not known before. Altoeether. the
i Chinese raid may have a rather salutary
effect' tin ' next -winter's legislation in
congress. . .
,' The Proceeds of Land Sales. , '
New York, May 27. Kiernan's ' News
Agency says : Colonel James McNaught,
general counsel of the Northern Pacific,
says there is no truth in the report
emanating from Philadelphia that the
company is buying preferred stock with
the proceeds of lancf sales awarded to the
company by the Manitoba decision.
Until a mandate from the United States
supreme court is handed down he does
not see how the company can be buying
its stock. Vice-President Williams says
it will be time enough when the com
pany has a land fund in hand for it to
buy HtocI, aiid when it is in such posi
tion it will not be necessary to announce
it from the house tops.
Sir John MarDonald Reported Dying.
