Has Had Very Successful
Fish Trip Through
FROM LOCAL MARKET
Give3 His Views on the Chinese Sit
uation Feels Positive of Good
Faith of Japan in the
Dr. David Starr Jordan, president of
Stanford University and one of tho
most eminent scientists In the Unit!
States, Is a through passenger In the
Nippon Mnru for San Francisco. Ito
and 1'rofessor Synder, an Instructor at
Stanford, nre now on their way back to
tho University after an absence of
about three months in Japan where
the) have been collecting tho fishes to
be found In Jnpnncso waters for the
museum nt Stanford, Dr. Jordan very
kindly made tho following statements
to a Bulletin reporter this morning
"During our threo months' stay In
Japan, we sliced ded In collecting soven
hundred dlffeient species of fish. Out
ot this number, one hundred and twen
t aie new to science. Naturally v.e
are verj much elated over the success
which has crowned our efforts. Wo
have all our specimens aboard, put up
In good shape for the long trip.
"The Japanese llsh, taken as a whole
are very much less hlghl) colored than
the fish to bo found In jour water?
Tho Hawaiian fish arc noted nil ovtr
tho world for this feature.
"You perhaps know that. In coun
tries such as Hawaii, whero the coral
formations nre to be found tlio color
ing of the llshcs conforms to tho sur
roundings. Dy this 1 mean the deep
blue of the ocean, tho Intense coloring
of tho si a growths, etc.
"Hawaiian fishes have been thor
oughly worked up. Two professors
from Stanford were here in IS'JO and
their work was most complete."
Later on, Dr. Jordan and Professor
Snjder went to the flshmnrkct wheio
they were fortunate In being In time, to
pick specimens from tho early morn
ing catch which had Just como In. Tho
Chinese and natives very soon learned
the object of Dr. Jordan's visit and kept
him busy from one stall to another. A
keiosene oil tin was filled before tho
scientist had completed his purchases.
"I have In the neighborhood of sixty
or seventy Hawaiian fish now," Dr.
Jordan said. "On my way to the, Orient
I got a few specimens but no where
near the number I havo succeeded In
getting this morning. I shall continue
to collect throughout tho day and
eirlj In tho morning, before tho w
parturo of the steamer."
Having finished with Ills story ot the
fishes Dr. Jordan was asked for his Im
pression on tho present situation In
China, In nnswer to which ho male
"Chlnn Is todny In a state of chaos
and, to my mind, there nre but two
vnvs out of tho dilemma for tho Pow
ers at piesent concerned. One Is n to
tal reorganization of China and the
other Is for a quiet removal of the for
elgn troops, allowing tho Chtncso to
to carvo out their own destiny.
"Tli" first of these Is a question of
great magnitude. It would mean tho
choice of some eminent and liberal
statesman ns ruler of China with ad
vlsets from tho various nations of Kit
rope. It would mean also a complete
change In tho long established custom
of lot) lug petty taxo on tho people of
tho various provinces that have proven
"As you know, each province is sur
rounded with Custom Houses wheie
theso taxes must be paid. This money
never reaches tho government but gees
to tho rulers of tho provinces, Ily this
unceasing levy ot taxes and the con
stant watch on the people, ono province
Is kept Ignorant ot tho dolngi In tho
next. If reorganization Is to I o ef
fected, this must all bo dono away vvllli
You can seo tho magnitude of tho an-
dertaklng from what I have Just staled
This Is only ono of the many proolems
that would havo to bo solved In con
nection with reorganization,
"Tho second way out of tho dllomma
Is for the nations to gracefully with
draw and leavo China to fight out her
own salvation. This would bo danger
ous for China but It would savo any
amount of trouble to tho other powoit
Of course, China could piomlso a mon
ey Indcmnltj for her recent acts but
this would nevci bo paid.
"Yos, I believe Ruasli lias designs on
tho territory In China south of hci
rajlioad, Sho wants to connect Port
Althtir with Vladlvostock and I bo-
IImo Hint, sooner or Inter. Iiy (air
mean or otherwise, she will get II. o
foothold In China alio U now striving
ntter It In nt)' opinion that Russia I
tho only countr) Hint Is out for Chinese
"I havo heard a great deal about Ja
pan hating designs on Chlnn but I
can sny posttvely that till li not so
for 1 know the Japani-so nmt have bail
occasion lo learn what the Sllkado'n
government I after.
'Japan's nolo purpose In Joining the
nllleil powers was to march to the relief
of the Ministers nt Peking. This ac
complished, she now stands ready to
withdraw her troops when the proper
"Tho only thing Japan wants Is th
control of Corca In order that that
country mny not be turned against her
self. This accomplished, she Is will
ing to relinquish everything else."
Beware of the Pier.
For tho benefit of the public tho
Sljrtlo Do.it Club boys wish It staled
that those people who nttend tho races
at Pearl Harbor Saturday should bo
very careful about tho pier In front of
tho Macfarlane house, the hcndquarteis
of the Mjrtlcs. This pier Is only sup
ported by two outer piers so that If a
crowd of people gets upon It, there will
very likely bo a number of baths taken.
A sign will bo put up on the pier warn
ing people off.
