Spitzer died at sea after trying
bravely to hide his identity, and doing
the hard worK of a forecastle hand
under the racking pains of a consump

Spitzer was the hero of the oriental
waters for a decade or more. With
his. brother, Dick, he revived in reality
the most adventurous days of the free
lances of the seven seas. As pearler,
blockade runner, gun runner, Louis
Spitzer had hair breadth escapes
which would fill many volumes. Again
and again he laughed at great fleets of
the world powers, at the spitting guns
of heavily manned forts, the gold lace
of angry admirals and even the stone
walls of oriental jails. His brother
shared most of his later adventures.

Lowering the Honolulu Passenger

frn .-an Francisco to 'Jonolulu
was a message received by agents
that the fare one way, with berths
on the main deck, inside rooms, had
been lewered from $75 to $65, and
for the round trip it had been cut
from $135 to $110.
The rates apply on the "Big Four"
of the Pacific Mail fleet the stum
ers Manchuria, Korea, Siberia and
Mongolia. The changes are made ef
fective with the sailing of the steam
er Korea October 12. The news was i
of interest here because of the num
ber applying for accomodations on
later steamers, intending to make
winter trips to the Hawaiian group.
Recently it has been difficult to se
cure berths for first-class passengers
unless arranged for weeks in advance
and for that reason the rate war
theory is advanced, because it is felt
that the Pacific Mail has been en
joying a heavy business to the is
lands and that the fare would not be
cut voluntarily. Rates are made from
Portland so passengers are routed
on the "Big Three" liners.
