3TRANGLER KILLS TWO
BODIES OF TWO WOMEN FOUND
IN NEW YOItK WITH FINGER
MARKS ON THROATS.
New York, July 31 The bodies of
two women with the marks of the
stranglcr on their throats have been
found here within the last twelve
hours, and the police believe that one
man committed both crimes. Neither
of the victims have been identified.
One woman was found in an area
way on East Nineteenth street. The
marks of a thumb and a forefinger
were visible on her throat, and her
face and neck were smeared: with
blood. She was about 27 years old.
No one In the neighborhood heard
sounds of a struggle.
Tha body of tha other woman, also
the victim of a strangler, was found
last night in a Twenty-second street
boarding house. Tha woman cams
to the house with a man who gave
his nama as Davis. Her body was
found last night In the room the
couple had ocojupled. A necktie had
been' knotted! tightly around her
throat and she had been dead for
several hours.' Tha blood vessels In
the neck were broken and the
woman's clothes ware drenched in
blood. No trace of the man, who had
occupied tha room with her, has beea
found. The dead woman was about
14 years old.
Braall Eager for Japanese Trade.
Washington, July 11. Tha daily
consular report states on the autb
orlty of Irving B. Dudley, minister to
Brasll, that special effort Is being
made by Brazil to Induce the coming
of Japanese labor, and that It Is
largely to this end that a subsidy is
offered for the establishment of a
regular steamer 11ns between Rio de
Janeiro and Japan.
Mr. Uchlda, who presented his
credentials as Japanese minister td
Brasll June 3, said in a conversation
that the consummation of this pro
ject Is the principal aim of his mis
sion. Tha new stemshlp line, according
to Minister Uchlda, will be in opera
tion as soon as arrangements can be
perfected, and will probably touch at
the west coast ports of Ecuador, Pe

Admirals Capps and Conies to Visit
the Paclllc to Deride on Place to
Locate New Supply Point.
Washington, July 31. It Is prob
able that another naval station will
be created on the Pacific Coast as the
result of the forthcoming visit there
of Admiral Capps, chief naval con
structor of the navy, and Admiral
Cowles, chief of the equipment bu
reau. The former left Washington
today for New York, where he will
be joined by Admiral Cowles, and
the two will go together to tha Pa
cific Coast to make a thorough in
spection of the yards and stations on
that coast, and report upon the fu
ture needs of the navy In that quar
ter. Admiral Hollyday, clhef of tha bu
reau of yards and docks, will follow
these two officers to Sau Francisco ou
a similar errand. This will Involve
a careful examination of the Mare
Island Navy Yard and that at Brem
erton. The resources of the two navy
yards are scarcely sufficient to make
even temporary repairs and dockings
that will be required by Admiral
Evans' battleship fleet If it makes
only a temporary visit to the coast.
Hence, the Inspection of these yards
will probably result in recommenda
tions to Congress at its approaching
session for a considerable enlarge
ment of the plans at both places.
The difficulty of procuring skilled
labor in these yards, especially at
Bremerton, will also be considered,
with a view to making the conditions
more attractive to such labor, if by
no other means than assuring the
men of 'continuous employment at
good wages. But from a naval point
of view probably of more Interest is
the proposition to establish a naval
station at Ban Diego, Cel., which will
be etaminad from all points of view
by the visiting admirals. The harbor
at this point possesses superior ad
vantages as a naval anchorage.
There are good railroad connections,
assuring abundant supplies of coal.
If water communication Is cut off in
war time, and tha harbor can be
The distance of San Diego south
ward from San Francisco and upon
the same Una with the projected
Panama canal would also make It an
advantageous coaling point. Of
course, the consent of Congress
would be necessary to render effec
tive its selection.
