OBTAINS HEAVY CUT
IN INSURANCE RATES
SAN BERNARDINO PROFITS BY
Underwrites Announce Reduction of
Twenty Per Cent, Action Taken
Being Made Retroactive
for Sixty Days
Special to The Herald.
SAN BERNARDINO, June 18.—A re
duction of 20 per cent in Insurance
rates has been made by the under
writers, the reduction being retrifictlve
for sixty days. The rates for the en
tire city have been readjusted and the
25 per cent arbitrary figure placed two
years ago has been removed entirely.
The reduction in the rates here comes
largely as a result of the work of the
water commission, which has paid spe
cial attention to the placing of plenty
of fire hydrants, there being scarcely
a building in the entire city limits that
cannot be reached by from one to a
dozen lines of hose.
OBJECT VEHEMENTLY TO
NAME BEING ELIMINATED
Notification That San Bernardino Ter

SAN BERNARDINO. June 18.—The
elimination of the name "San Bernar
dino" in designating the forest re
serve, and the extension of the name
San Gabriel over all the territory for
merly designated by the former title
has raised a roar among the people of
this city and valley. It is probable
that protests will be made to the gov
ernment by every board of trade and
other organization in the valley and
section. The name "San Bernardino"
stood for a much greater area of re
serve than did "San Gabriel," and it
also stands for a mountain range, a
county, a city and a high mountain
peak. The peoplo here believe that If
one name must be dropped It should be
"San Gabriel," which stands for noth
ing in the minds of the majority.

OCEAN PARK, June 18.—Colonel W.
W. Coolbaugh, the man who built the
Chicago alley elevated railroad, and
is experienced as a prospector and
surveyor, has been all over the Santa
Monica mountains, camping for long
periods, and he is about to return to
them for the greater part of the sum

painstaking observations. He snld
that under the sage brush and scrub
oak lies unemployed and unlimited
storehouse of valuable minerals, oil,
coal, asphaltum, gypsum and precious
stones, only waiting man's effort to
bring them forth.
"Beginning at the Malibu creek, or
at the southwestern slope of the range,
and extending northeast at an average
width of five miles and for a distance
of ten miles In length," he declared,
"sufficient minerals can be found to
keep 1000 men employed for years to
come, and when the area is thoroughly
developed it will surprise the country.
"It also will prove a large field of
study for the scientific student. The
crustaceous sandstone and the marine
crustaceous stone, showing petriflca
tion, can be found throughout the en
tire area. The minerals lying in these
mountains are the chief attraction for
man today. The minerals are there be
yond a doubt and it is only a matter
of time when they will be developed.
"It is my prediction that within the
next ten years the Santa Monica range

most every kind. The canyons will be
thickly inhabited and the at present
primitive roadways will, have been Im

STEAMSHIP FREIGHT LINES
SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION
Several Companies Have Decided to
Lay Off Freight Carrying Vessels
a,nd Some Will Change
NEW YORK, June 18.—Tbe agents
of the ocean steamship companies have
been hard hit by a general depression
in freight traffic to Europe, and they
say no relief is in sight.
Since the first of the year they say
there has been a gradual falling off in
freights and a number of lines have
decided to either take come of their
freight off altogether or to transfer
some of them to other ports, where
the shrinkage in freight has not been so
great as here.
They say that although the depres
sion in freights and carrying business
is general at the principal ports it has
been felt most heavily by the steamship
lines at this port.
The laying oft of five freight steam -
ships by the White Star line last week
was attributed in a large measure to
the diversion of grain snipments from
this port to Montreal, but many other
lines besides the White Star have also
felt this diversion of freight keenly.
A Joint meeting has been called lor
tomorrow between the trunk line as
sociation and the special committee ap
pointed by the produce exchange. This
meeting will be for the purpose of try
ing to get the railroads to agree to
lower their rates on grain between New
York and the Northwest so as to put
a stop to the great increase of grain
shipments to Europe through Montreal.
A member of the executive staff of
the International Mercantile Marine
company said yesterday that competi
tion between the lake boats for the
grain transportation Is in a large meas
ure responsible for the position in
which the New York steamship lines
now find themselves.
