on nrrlval at -San FranciacQ from an
extended tour 'of the eastern cities, s
reported as declaring that the com
pany can hardly see its way clear in
spending some fourteen million dol

vigorous denial of the reputed sale bt
the v steamers - Mr. Schwerln further
statedri' 5it U Ti:.
"Of course the drastic law passed
by iCongress .hits the ? comDanyi ambi
tious plans a hard . blow. And, in tnjy
opinion, also dealt the best Interests
of the coast and the American mer

But the deed Is -: done and -that ends
Schwerln . says it must be borne, in
mind' that- the1 law has nothing1 vto - do
with the company's existing service.
"But it Ji as? he concluded, "stopped

far east and also on the malpland that
a 1 powerful Oriental syndicate" "had
been casting-longing eyes on -the fleet
of palatial vessels traversing the Pa
