Since tho early days of November
the I-aFolletio soman's bill has bean
! in clfect and tho eyes of all interested
in shipping have been turned toward
it to note its olrcct upon American
commerce on the high seas. So far the
tendency has been to emphasise the
points of conflict with the employer's
interest and the actionof tho Dollar
company in transferring its ships en
gaged in Oriental trade from the
American to the British registry has
been hailed as a prophetic omen of
Hut it must not bo supposed that
an act tlmt has been debated through
half score of Congresses nr.d finally
passed by both houses and signed by
the president, can be whololy without
good that may be said in its favor.
Therefore tho first years trial of
the measure will bo a matter of groat
interest to shippers.
Such shippers as the Dollars claim
that they can not compote with Jap
aneee boats and still comply with the
provisions of this law which would re
sult in raising the wages of sailors
enraged in foreign trcde and in chang
ing the regulations of saa life as to
make competition with the little Or-
j0J1jnj jm ,ossj,e

Th Dollar boats which now will un
load their cargoes at British Colum
bia ports instead of in U. S. ports arc
manned by Chineoso sailors.
The provision especially objected to
J puts down certain regulations on ves
sels clearing from American ports..
Friends of the bill contend that it
will raise the wages and standards of
living for sailors all over the world.
They claim that foreign vessels put
ting in at American ports will bo de
parted by their crews anil no new
erews can bo taken on except under
the standnrds as outlined in the bill.
That tho word will soon spread
among sailors that a stop at an Amor
ii in port will mean increaso in wag
es and improved living conditions and
tho result will bo tho improvement of
co dition of railors all over the world,
favor of the bill is that the Japanese

j la'vei i'wii Known io romHo it cuniu'o
to bot'?r himself financially and along
with the adoption of Europern cus
toms will be a readiness lo take ad
vantage of this Yankee scheme for
their own improvement.
It is readily admitted that if the bill
will do what is claimed for it, this will
bo done in a short time and the work
ing of the bill will be watched with
We huuard tho opinion that if this
condensed fog lasts much longer some
one will havo to constitute a relief

DRY ROT IN BUILDINGS
As a result of investigations recent
ly made by Mr. C. J. Humphrey, Path
ologist in the Department of Agricul
ture, it has been found that dry rot in
'mill constructed" buildings in Wash
ington and Oregon is due, in all tho
cases roportcd to ignorance and gross
negligence on the part of the users of
wood as structual material.
It has boon found that timber intel
ligently used unilor normal conditions
will not rot, and furthermore that dry
rot is easily preventable. In 00 per
cent of the cases reported, the cause
was insufficient ventilation in the
building or around the timbered joints
A lack of fresh air and heat creates
a moist and musty atmosphere con
ducive to the growth of fungi. It is
well known that decay often starts in
a damp cellar.
Soini'mes lumber Itecomcj infect
ed with dry rot in the yard or shed of
the mill and is Mien ignora..t'.y or .ieg
gligontly sold for building purposes.
Yard infection is usually caused by
itnpropor piling of the lumbor. The
lumber is not piled so thnt there is a
free circulation of air throughout or
with sufficient slope to permit the rain
to run otf. In tho shed the infection is
generally caused by contact with a
