add considerably to the burdens of the
shippers of package freight. A t the

Washington, May 25.— Admiral Ev-

cruise o f the Pacific and its benefits
and the future policy and prospects of
the American navy.
"W hat, in your opinion,” he was
asked, ‘‘is the most vital question af

“ The shortage of officers and men,
particularly officers,” Admiral Evans
replied. “ W e have not a battleship in

“ In case of a sudden outbreak of
hostilities, we would find ourselves
seriously handicappd from this cause.”
The Admiral was then asked what
was the chief lessrin to be drawn from
the cruise of the battleship fleet.
“ There are two,” he replied. “ First,
the absolute necessity for two fleets,
one on the Atlantic and one on the
Pacific; second, that we took the fleet
to sea with one-third of the men un
trained and arrived at the Pacific en
trance to the Straits of Magellan and
Magdalena Bay absolutely in condi

Nevada Executive Killed by Oveawork
at Extra Session.
Reno, Nev., May 23.— “ I don’t fear
death. I have done my best. I am
tired and am ready to go. Good-bye.”
Surrounded by his wife, three sons
and a daughter, Governor John Sparks,
conscious to the last, sank to death at
8 :30 yesterday morning, after uttering
the above words.
The illness which culminated in the
governor’s death was directly due to
overwork and nervous strain attend
ant upon the extra session of Nevada’s
legislature late last fall.
Mr. Sparks was born in Mississippi,
August 30, 1843, and came to this state
in 1868, engaging in stockraising. He
owrted large cattle ranches in Nevada
and Texas, as well as a large cotton
plantation in Texas. He was elected
chief executive in 1902 and again in
1906 by large majorities.
Lieutenant-Governor D. S. Dicker-
son is now governor o f Nevada. He
came to Nevada eight years ago and
went to work in a mine at Cherry Tree.
