The amount of hot nlr which is be

League of Australia causes mo to
stirgo up luto tho atmosphere nud
dcclnro myself. I have just returned
from Australia and New Zealand,
where I spent nearly two years trav
eling over the Inhabited portions or
portions supposed to bo Inhabitable,
and feel so glad to bo onco more
whero tho Stars and Stripes flutter
that I cannot express my feelings.
(Havo to send them by freight.) Any
farmer who would' leavo tho poorest
hillside farm In tho U. S. to go "on

asylum or ho will come back so quick

thoso spots have been taken up long
ngo, nntl tho selector who goes thero
now goes Into the country where
there are no roads, whero to get his
produco to market lie has to haul It
for long distances, whero lie Is curs
ed by pests of rabbits (which the
law says ho must destroy or pay n
fine), red water, ticks, drought, or
flood; ho Is eaten nltvo by mosqui
toes, sand flics, gnats, atting by
'green heads," and n hundred other
species of vermin. Ho goes to n coun
try whero the trees glvo no shade
and shed their bark In placo of their
leaves, where tho birds don't sing,
but whero tho "prickly pear" grows
with jo) oils abandon and covers tho
land, driving out everything else
therefrom. Ho goes to n land whero
it co3ts him $2.2. for n pound of to
bacco labeled "American" and which

ple who have lived thero all their

If. thero Is nnj thing In the claims

making, whlc.1t Is true, It Is that "It

A whclc.u from the Tcnvo Marti
dated S o'clock last evening was this
morning received hero by Hackfcld
& Co. Now that sho has got going,
somo of tho waterfront authorities
find It hard to figure out why she litis
not mndo mora headway. It does not"
seem that film has picked up the Ala
meda, and It Is figured that nftcr,
28 1-" hours of running, sho has
made only ISO miles.
Tho wireless rends: "I'lcaso tell to
my ngents, Ilackfclds, tho position of
tho Tcnvo Jlaru at, & o'clock: I..tt.
25 degrees, flG minutes north; Long.
150 degrees, 16 m I mi lea west."
Captain Fuller, the htirbormabter,
figures out tlfnt this would m'eht
that tho Teno hncf traveled about
i 80 miles, all told, at 8 o'clock last
evening. It Is figured 'that she miiilo
80 miles, up to 8 o'clock on the pre
vious evening, which would make thu
run fo'r tho 24 hours 400 mile even.
This will never get her to tho
Coast on tho time sho expected when
leaving hero. It would bo necessary
for her to average about 18 knots, to
make It In I days and 8 hours, or 13"
knots per 2 1 hours,
Tho speed at'wlilch sho Is traveling
Is apparently uomovvhat over ,15
knots per hour.
