' Pacific Mail
Shipping chiefs, in San" Francisco
were at war over the Canal bill at last

Declaring that the board of direct
ors of the recently reorganized Cham
ber of Commerce had a mistaken im
pression In endorsing the rider sub
mitted to the Panama Canal bill by
W, R. Wheeler, manager pf thejr traf
fic bure&u in Washington, .a group of
insurgents headed by Captain John
Barneson, the millionaire shipping
man, had arranged for a big mass
meeting to thresh the matter out on
the floor of the chamberon Friday or
last week, the day after the Mongolia
The meeting was decided, upon fol
lowing the refusal of the board of di
rectors on Wednesday to accede to
the request of the insurgents to re
scind the action of WTieeler In 'sub
mitting the rider jo the Panama Canal
bill, which was passed by the House
ofRepresentatives on May 23 last and
was; reported by the Senate, committee-with
amendments killing'the rider
on "June 12. The rider, however, can
come to life again when the ? bill re
turns to the House for ratification. 1
Vi to prevent this that the insurgents
are fighting. ' " '
Say Industries Suffer.
Since reorganizing" with the allied
commercial bodies of ; San 'FranciECO
the Chamber of Commerce includes in
its membership nearly every branch of
industry in the city,' and the Insurg
ents headed by Captain Barneson take
the position that the majority of these
Industries will .-suffer gravely it tne
rider proposed bv, Wheeler is incorpor
ated. into the bill. v ' f: ; -; ' ;
The rider follows section '11 Of the
bill,: and provides that no sMp owned
or controlled' by a railroad shall pass
through the Fanama canat uniess ai
least Z0 per cent of Its cargo, In ton
nage, Vi destined to; or 'shipped irom
Oriental or European - ports.
The insurgents, who have aligned
with them the Hotel' Men's Associa
tion,, the Home Industry L'eague and
other commercial bodies In San Fran
cisco, contend that if the rider become
a part of the bill It will not only dis-
criminate Eealnst tne Facinc Maii.ana
other shins flying, the American flag
In the matter of freight, but that it will
kl?Q affect their pasflenger traffic, and
react on the business at large 01 tne
port. y-J'A: ' '
It was after several conrerences De-
tween the Insurgents and the chamber
directors that the latter finally decid
ed to stand pat on the Wheeler prop
sltion CaDtain' Barneson In an inter
view said the nrotrotmg members had
no grievance against Wheeler. Jmt
they believed the directors would nev
er have endorsed." the rider if , they ap
preclEted ' its real ' tignificance on the
business of the port of San Francisco.
Captain Barneson proceeded to say:
Pacific Mail's Position. ' v
"In the conference we had with the
board of directors, on Tuesday I sub
mitted an argument against the rider.
It was pointed out in this argument
that the Pacific Mall Steamship Com
pany proposed to bufld four new. pas
senger and freight-carrying steamers
of a displacement of 37,000 tons, a
cargo capacity of 350 first-class, 250
second-class and large steerage ac
commodations. These steamers are
to use oil fuel. Bids were obtained
on them from American yards last
January, and they approximate a total
of $12,000,000. v
"The Pacific Mail also proposes to
convert the steamers Mongolia, Man
churla Korea and Siberia, at present
onerated between San Francisco ana
the Orient, into oil burners and to
provide additional passenger conven
iences, in order to bring them up to
date. . '' ", - -'. ''-
"These American ships, built at an
expense of at least 50 per cent in ex
cess of foreign vessels of the same
class, and also operated at consider
ably greater expense, will in this ser
vice be in direct competition with the
subsidized Nippon Yusen , Kaisha,

Dining Saloo'n Will Meet Popular
. Demand. ..' .-
A ixjpular demand for Individuality
has caused the dlrectcrs of the Mat
son Line to take special pride in the
equipment of the dining saloon on th-?
new ship. A saloon large and airr,
with the latest appliances for ventila
tion, is to be located well forward.
One feature, heretofore never attempt-'
ed to any extent cn any liner in the
trans-Pacific trade, is the small taolea
which will dot the spacious hall.
. The dining saloon is to have ac
commodation for two hundred and two
passengers .at one sitting. Tables
will be placed of such size that part
ies of 2, 3, 4, S. 6, 8 and 9 passengers
can dine together insuring both com
fort and ' privacy. This arrangement
will be found pleasing3 to travelers,
judging from the expressions com
ing from those who have been riv
eleged to inspect the plans fori the
A smoking, room, with a series of
circular tables is to be situated on
the bridge deck. A reading 'room as
well as a social hall are planned fcr

Every Provision tyade For Safety.
, The new Matsob steamship will be
prepared to carry two wireless opera
tors. The same number. of steward
esses will be a feature in the assem
bling of the staff
Life boats, will swing from , the
upper deck to such a number that
every soul including passengers, offi
cers and qrew will have the required
amount of space as perscriled by the
United States regulations. The Jie
boats ss well as life rafts are tr 1Te
constructed along the latest lines.
Purser's Office Pretentious. .
The purser in the new liner m!11

par with the best vessels afloat In
addition to private apartments that
official will attend to his duties la
a specially fitted office room which
will adjoin a large steel vault. A wait
ings room Is to adjoin the main 3fTite.
Two hospitals, one for men and another-
for women are to be located
in the after part of the new . veel.
These will be used in case of emerr
gency. '-'. , '' '
The latest, addition to the. Ma'son
fleet will be provided with public and
private bathes In such numbers as tp
lead? one to bellve that the directors
are great believers in the oft reiter
