In Discharging Steamers
and Sailing Vessels
LARGE FIRMS ARE NOW
'' CONSIDERING MATTER
Will Do Work Cheaper and More
Quickly Than Agents Themselves
Will Be Responsible
From present Indications, tl would,
spiieac that tlio next three months will
sco all the work of loading and dis
charging steamers nnd sailing vessels
at this port ilono by the stevedores.
The big shipping firms havo now
under consideration the employment of
stevedores to do tho work now done
by tho several ngents. Their Idea Is to
savo time, aud money. As It Is now.
whentlic.agents ilo their own discharg
ing, they must make good any damage
dono to ship or cargo.
When tho stevedores do tho work
thoy nro tho responsible parties and
na they have appeared to do the work
cheaper and quicker than U can be
dono by tho agents themselves, there Is
a great likelihood that their offer will
bo taken up..
lleforo this port came under Ameri
can law, tho crows of American sailing
vessels could generally be relied upon
to work cargo In port Now they can
not and, as a result, tho stevedores
havo very generally, been employed.
Willi the steamers, It Is different. Out
side help Is always necessary for coal
ing nnd handling cargo and of late,
there has been n good deal of trouble
tn 5ft tho longshoremen to work ns
font as, was wanted.
Where a stovedoro makes a con
tract to do the work, ho specifies (he
price and timo It will take and It is to
his iidvantngo to keep to his contract.
This is tho only port on tho Paclfl"
where stevedores nro not emploed ns
a matter of course and, of late, there
have been scleral examples of what a
saving can bo made by employing them.

way they worked, It looked as If the
shlp would bo a year In getting rid of I
her cargo. At last, after a delay of nl-
moat thrco weeks, during which time
about seven hundred tons of coal wns
discharged by the ship, the stevedores
were .called In. They did tho work

Among other things, tho judge said:
"Mr. Bush, jou must not treat your

You should get Bomeono to do the hard
work on your place If you cannot do It
yourself. Tho husband is supposed to

Among the smokers who earned for a good cigar after tho v easel was
Bevcral days emt wero Captain F. Mosher of the Kenuhnu and Dr.
Shoreman of Chicago. They had forgotten to bring a supply of cl
gars for tho trip and tho brands tho barber sold on tho steamer
were beautiful to look upon but most terrible to smoke.
Chas. Schlcsslnger of Sin Francisco, another of tho passengers,
had n box of cigars that wero reallj fine. Ho smoked them himself,
however, ns ho had only ono box nnd a seven dajs' trip to use them
up on. Mosher nnd tho doctor got several of theso clgnrs but, as tlnio
went on. their nnturnl modesty forbade their asking for or even hint
ing thnt they would very much relish ono of Schlpsslnger's weeds.
Schlcsslnger, being n generous man, had done what he could to help
tho Bmnkers out but bis cigars were worth a quarter each .
Tho doctor at last grew desperate and went to tho ship's barber
who sold cigars. Ho bought a bi. They wero tho regular 'Snielln
dora" brand used a great denl during elections. As soon ns Mosher
saw tho doctor's cigars, a. happy thought Btruck him, Ho took them
down Into Schlesslnger's room and thero ho changed tho good cigars
for tbo cheap ones lJnch paper label was taken off the good cigars
nnd replaced w Ith tho brands from tho cheap cigars Then tho cheap
cigars with their new bands wero put back In tho box which had con
tained tbo good cigars.

tho sea captain nnd the doctor, did not lacm to enjoy his smokes, Ho
complained to Steward Joo Seelny that tho salt air hnd ruined his ci
gars Ho tried to Binoko two or three and, giving up In disgust, do
nnted tho clgnrs to ono of tho wnltcrs nnd smoked a plpo all tho rost
of tho trip.
Mosher offered hlni clgnrs several times but, thinking that they
