JAPANESE MAY PLAN TO EVADE
PAYMENT OF PANAMA CANAL TOLL
That ofce or more ' Japanese steam
chip companies at present contemplat
ing doing business between the At
lantic and the Pacific by way of the
Panama Canal may be successful in
evading the payment of canal dues, is
Xhe prediction made this morning by a
Japanese business man, returning to
the Orient as a passenger in the Toyo
Klsen Kaisha liner Tenyo Maru.
In this connection it was stated that
the Toyo Kisen Kaisha was generally
, believed to be opposed to the payment
of canal dues, and to avoid this con
tribution to the American government,
following the opening of the connect
ing waterway, the steamship line
might evolve a plan whereby through
cargoes would be' transhipped at Ho
nolulu or San Francisco to American
bottoms, and in this manner carried
through the canal to ;the East Coast
of the United States or together lands.
. The Tenyo Jdaru was an early ar
rival this morning, the huge hner com
ing alongside the Alakea wharf short
ly after S o'clock:
Captain Fllmer' reported' a fine trip
with a: fair T wind and comparatively
' smooth sea. , The Tenyo Is well crowd

' - Purser Grasett of the big Tenyo

a fine trip down from San Francisco,
. is withal a brave man and fears 'not

. doo." ' ' ' .- ? 1 vv' ''
He was reminded this mowiing' that
l an anxious Inquirer from shore had
failed to locate room thirteen" in the
Toyo Kisen Kaisha liner. , "' t
- here's nothing to fear from num
ber thirteen," declared Grasett, while
, successfully attending ,to the wants of
a half dozen passengers at one and
. the same .time. r v
-A Pacific Coast steamer from the
Sound to San Francisco was followed
by thirteen sharks, and had thirteen
passengers aboard. ' The; captain or
dered one of the passengers to shoot
one of the sharks to change the luck
of the vessel;" which was making poor
- time. At the thirteenth shot one shark
'turned over :on its back t and died,
whereupon the 6teamship "made thir
teen knots an hour to port it is be
lieved that the originator of the story
was thirteen years old.
