The Government did not do so with
the object of injuring shipowners,
but to do good to the people and res
idents of the nor'-west The vessel
had already made a profit on her
first trip from Newcastle to Fre
mantle, and had been booked up with
cargo for four trips ahead. The Kwi

7T0 head of cattle and 10,000 sheep,
and ff they could bring her down
fully loaded about twice a month it
would be readily seen that they would
be able to make some Inroads into
what was termed "the cattle ring."
It might be urged against the Gov
ernment he added, that they were
buying ships only fit for the scrap
heap, but he would like to point out
that many of the ships owned by
those who levelled the charges were
older than the Kwinana.
It is reported that the Swan Meat
Company, a large retail establish
ment, has made a verbal offer to
sell to the Government its plant and
organization, at 10 per cent less than
cost price. This offer is the outcome
of th e Government's, purchase of
steamers to engage in the cattle trade
with" the object of reducing the price
of meat to the consumer: The Cab

Japanese Back Manila Service.
Plans are fast ; maturing . for the
proposed new steamship service be
tween Japan and Manila; backed by
Japanese capital with1' government
subsidy, says the Manila Bulletin.1'
The plan of the new company that
Is launching In the business Is ' to
start operating in October of the
present year, with 3000 ton steamers.
Some time ago a company was pro
moted 1 by r .the - Mikami ' Steamship
Company In Kobe and somes bther
Japanese with the purpose or estab

to Manila," Saigon Singapore ; and

opinion among the promoters as to
the distribution of shares. -According,
to latest advices from Japan, the
negotiations have been resumed and

the success of present negotiations,
the Japan Advertiser says;. - 'The
promotion' of the company' has. It ap
pears, been taken charge of "by three
gentlemen," Messrs." rJujird' ' Harada,
KwakicM Itaya ant Kelzb'Oakf,' whd
will takev up all the 'shares.' Their
plan is to start business In October
"With two 3pO(Vton steamers, which

The matter of the needs of Portland
for more steamers tb the Orient h
recently become so imperative that
the Chamber "of Commerce of that city
has seriously considered the advisabil
ity of raising J8U0.000 for ;. the pur
pose of operating steamers between
Portland and the Orient It 'ls now
believed, however, that there will be
little difficulty in ' making arrange
ments with commercial lines to place
vessels on this run. '
The amount of 'money which Port
land proposed to raise for a steam
ship line is considered entirely inad
equate for the purpose, but the fact
that the citizens pf the city were pre
pared, to dig " into their purses and
bank accounts shows that the cities
of. the Northwest are alive to the sit
uation and are prepared to fight for
some of the benefits which wfll ac
crue with the opening of the Banama

Committee of His Own Pre

Off Ticket
A committee consisting of John Wa-
terhouse, Geo.rge W. Smith and Wil
lard E. Brown called on W. H. Hoogs
yesterday forenoon and notified him
that his nomination for supervisor
from the Fourth district was impos
sible and as politely as possible told
him to get "off the ticket.'
Whether Hoogs had gives! oit. his in

er this interview'ls not known. The
candidate for the Fourth precinct ot
the Fourth district is John ILfCraig,

garbled, with apparent deliberation,
said, There is just one, statement of
fact in Billy Hoogs' presentation of
the situation through- the columns 1 of
the -Advertiser.- I did state that I re
fused to longer continue as a football
fn the political play of businessmen

or in the election, and I thought that
the Star-Bulletin' would . also 'oppose
him. ' v'-v. V !;.Jr-:V ,;:v.f '.''.:f'''
"It is not true -that the caucus re

"The caucus endorsed J- both Mr.

"r did not say and have not said at

MORE LAWS NOT NEEDED.

to a set speech which,, he tola his

NOTED ROCKJ
Pawnee Rock, the historic bluff on
the Santa Fe trail at the edge of the
town of Pawnee Rock, was at one
time much larger than it is now.
There were many names, now his
toric, carved in the old rock, but a
good many of these were cut away
when the Tock was quarried. Back
in 1845 Robert E. Lee, the noted Con
federate general, carved his name onj
the face of Pawnee Rock beside those '
of Custer, Grant, Sheridan and other '
men noted in the country's history.
