MEAT FAMINE RUMOR
Tho leport was curient this morn
ing thnt a scanity of fresh meat and
vegetables In the local market was
seriously impeding tho work of tho
local pay olllce In provisioning tha-
crulscr squadron and that, In conse
quence, tho ships would have to
start on their long Journey without
sufficient fresh provisions.
Investigation proved tho rumor to
be gioundless. Accoidlng to an olll
rlul who is In n position to know,
thcro Is .ill tho meat available that
can be used, and more. Every ship'
will go from hcio with refrigerators
full of fresTTTneat.
A little trouble has been experi
enced in getting ns largo a supply of
potatoes And cabbages ns tho officers
of the squadron would lllto to have.
Tho reason Is that the changed Itin
erary, which scuds tho ships from
hero to Mngdalona Hay, mal.es It ad
visable to carr) n supply of green
vegetables sufficient to last u month.
All of the vegetables called for In
the bids have been delivered, and
about 20 per tent over. On shoit
notice tho contractors could not do
mote, however, though they would
hue been nblo to furnish almost any
quantity hnd thoy known ahead of
None of tho ships wfll suffer from
