The Oregouiau prints the follow

"Wireless telegraphic communi
cation between the United States
and the Philippines, via Hnwaii, is
promised within the next 18 months
by Dr. Deforest, with whose wire
less telegraph system the Navy De
partment has been experimenting
at Annapolis. Speaking of the pro
jected work the doctor said:
"Long before the success of the
trans-Atlantic wireless telegraphy
was publicly demonstrated, the of
ficials of the American Deforest
Company had completed plans for
an elaboratesystem of gigantic pow
er stations for spanning the Pacific.
By next June there will be two
trans- Pacific cables, and it is safe
to say that there will be no more
cables laid across that ocean. Sever
al months ago the company placed
large orders for high power trans
formers and generators with several
large manufacturers of electrical
apparatus. Two of the stations
shortly to be begun by the com
pany will far exceed in power those
in existence today for Atlantic
work. One of these stations is to'
be in the Philippines, at a point not
far from Manila, and the other on
the northernmost part of the Ha
waiian group. ,
"This range from Manila to Ho
nolulu is the longest and most diffi
cult in the world, and plants for
generating 60 kilowatts are laid
out for these two stations. Three
towers, each 250 feet in height, are
to be erected as near to highwater
mark as possible at each station,
with the buildings for power house,
receiving station and relay offices
erected in the triangular space
among the towers. The power at
these two stations is to be generat
ed by steam a full plant of boilers
and turbine steam engines being
provided. These latter will be
coupled direct to three 20-kilowatt
generators 'of .jo-circle frequency
and of a design to funish a peculiar
form of wave." In addition to the
stations at Manila and Hawaii,
tlje company will erect a small sta
tion at Hongkong, to connect with
the Manila station. The Amer
ican station is to be erected near
the southern end of Lower Cali
President Stands by Crum.
Washington, March 5. The
President has renominated Dr.
Crum for collector of the port of
Charleston, S. C. The President
wishes Dr. Crura, a negro, to be
confirmed as Collector of the Port
of Charleston, and all available
white influence in the South has
been brought to bear on the Senate
to prevent such action. At the
regular session of the Senate the
President sent Crum's nomination
in and it was referred to the Com
mittee on Commerce. This "com
mittee reported adversely on the
nomination and the Senate did not
take n vote on the question. The
President wishes to force a vote
and the negro friends of Dr. Crura
are making great efforts to have
the vote on strict party lines in
order that he may win.

Four British war crafts will
head for Honolulu harbor in a
very short time. Two of these will
be cruisers and two torpedo de
stroyers. The former are to simply convey
the little four funnelled destroyers,
the most interesting of vessels of
war. The destroyers will be here
on their way from Esquimalt to
Hongkong. They have been ordered
to China where they will be cm
ployed in chasing pirates on the
The two torpedo destroyers arc
the Sparrowhawk and the Virago.
These are now at Esquimalt, where
they have been repaired and spe
cially strengthened for the rough
voyage across the Pacific. They
were ordered to China last year, but
a big protest was made at Esqui
malt against weakening that im
portant station and the British Ad
miralty allowed them to remain on
the British Columbian coast. Now
definite orders have been, issued for
them to sail for China, via Hono
lulu, on April 15th.
The British cruiser Amphion,
which is now cruising off the South
American coast, has becin ordered
back to Esquimalt and will arrive
there about March 25th. The Am
phion will accompany the two small
crafts as far as Honolulu. From
China another cruiser is to arrive
to accompany the vessels from Ho
nolulu to Hongkong and the des
troyers will probably be in Hono
lulu for sometime while waiting
for the cruiser from China to arrive.
As the battleship Wisconsin is to
arrive here sometime in May the
prospects are that Honolulu will
witness a great deal of naval ac
tivity around this port during the

Two thousand emigrants have left
so far this month for Canada'. The
Canadian government maintains in
England an immigration bureau
which is doing extensive work in
the way of securing settlers for the
Canadian northwest. This Bureau
advertises the attractions of Canada,
from a settler's standpoint, in news
papers in every section of the Brit
ish Isles and answers to inquiries
contain a large amount of printed
matters dealing with Canada, giving
statistics and general information
concerning the country. Recent
reports from Ottawa stated that
this year promises to be a record
one for immigration in Canada.
