SAN FRANCISCO, June 6. The
American bark Er3kine M.
Phelps, now on her way from the Philippines
to Honolulu to load sugar for
New York, made the fastest run of the
year from Norfolk. Va.. to Manila, abe
left Norfolk on November IS and averaged
125 knots a cay for 7 days, whlci
carried her to the Island of Sumba, at
the entrance to the straits of Bomber,
on that showing Captain Graham expected
to make the run to Manila la
record-breaking time, but light cad
contrary wlnas, calms and adveise currents
In the passage spoiled the ship s
chances, and the average each day was
only 65 knots, much to the disgust of
everybody on board. The Phelps was
122 days making the run, which is, nevertheless,
a goou showing, considering
uie average ran is 150 days. The
Phelps discharged 4627 tons of coal at
the navy yard "at Cavito and on April
24 sailed for Honolulu in ballast The

excellent nieces of character work,
vocally and dramatically. Mr. Rogers

Diavolo which is a pity, the rank and tile
of tbe Orpheum folks beina blessed with
good voices and. well drilled precision
of attack and climax reaching powers
that are most refreshing. What little
chance they had however they made the

in bringing about that mot desired
