The plan, as it is alleged, is to sell the names appearing on this list to Celestials and thus allow them to use the names in entering this country, coming here un der the guise of reutrning aliens. Whether the two delegates from China ' have been successful in their c fforts : to obtain the list and are no w cn their way to China ready to begin the fraudulent immigration campaign cannot be definitely learned, and the statements of Chinamen who have been approached by the alleged schem ers are at disagreement on the point While one believes they have secured the list, another says they are still seeking to get it and are increasing their fee. John W. Akana, one of the men ap proached, "says he does not know how the matter stands at this time. He affirms that the delegates came to him some time ago offering to Tetaln his services in compiling the list On ex amination, he says, he found thai, there Were more than 30,000 Chinese w hq . have returned to their country from here since 1880, and he there upon informed the men that" it would be impossible for him to compile the list within the short time desired, lie also intimated to them, he states, that they were going to put it to an un lawful use. ' - v ' . ' . 'The Chinamen did not come to mo again after that' he declared this morning. "They probably suspected that I would: disclose their plan to the officials. : I understand that they be gan negotiations with . other persons, but with what success I cannot say. "There seems to me no doubt but that tjey plan to use the list to evadt the immigration law. 1 co not know their names or where they came from. But I am of the opinion that they rep lesent a moneyed huL Because of the disturbances in China there are un doubtedly a large number of China men who would give a big sum to get out of their country : and live in the United, States. , So they would have little trouble selling the list if once in their possession," Other . Chinamen- expressed' them selves in a similar tone. They all pro fessed to be ignorant of the names of the schemers, their whereabouts or whence they came. But they are in agreement in the matter of the planned use of the list The federal immigration officials stated this morn fag that their attention had not been called to the scheme of the China- men. WRECKS THE The recently completed battery at Fort De Ru3sy was proof fired yester day afternoon; the department com mander and a few staff officers not ing with anxious Interest the test which determined the success of the mounted gun3. Two rounds were fired from each of the two guns, everything going of f, according to calculations, and without accident or incident. ' The only damage done by the con cussion was to the post ' hospital, where dozens of bottles came rattling and crashing to the floor, making an Indescribable mess of broken bottles and spilled chemicals. : The guns were sighted for 6000 yards, and fired one at a time, first lith a three-quarter charge, and then with the full service charge behind the cast iron projectile. The field of fire was absolutely clear of any ob struction, and there was little or no delay in firing, as soon as General Funston put in an appearance. 'The fall of the projectiles was easily spot ted by the splash, a column of water fully 80 feet in height shooting sky ward as the shot buried itself in the open sea. "The guns and carriages are in every way successful." said Captain C. W. Waller, of the ordnance department,- who had charge of the proof firing. "The test is all that could be desired." Those who observed the proof fir ing included General Funston, Colonel Jlafferty, Major Wooten, Major Conk lin, Captain J., S. Johnston. Captain Stayton, Lieutenant Ball and Lieuten ant Tilton. .

Practically, all the certificates are taken by Japa nese,, who desire to send their , chil dren, born in these islands, back- to Japan for an education.: Several hun dred Japanese children, it.is said, are sent back to the land of -the Mikado every ! year for instruction in the schools of that country. : . V - RUIN IN FREE "If the Underwood " tariff bill re ducing the duty on sugar to 1 cent a pound, becomes a law the sugar Indus try of Hawaii will be practically, ru ined," says J, A. Gilman, a prominent sugar-grower of Honolulu, who Is In Portland On buSmess.. ; - "It is impossible for. us to compete with the German sugar growers on an open market," said Mr. Gilman yester day. "The cost of labor and transpor tation and the general expenses are much greater with us than our Ger-' man compTftors. " - : - "Since the islands have been an nexed to the United States the cost of labor has more than doubled. With the present dutr of $33.60 a ton cn our raw sugar it costs, us about $58 a ton to lay sugar down in New York to day. Our average selling price is $80 a ton. This gives us a margin of $22, but out of this vie have to pay the cost of selling it and other expenses. "Now the Un Jerwood bill proposes to cut the duty to 1 cent a pound or $20 a ton. At the end of three years the duty is to be removed altogether. This virtually -would confiscate our business. Wexould not operate un der a free sugar system, as" the Ger man growers could cut under . : our price at every turn." . . v Mr. Gilman points out that 90 per cent of the people In the Hawaiian Islands depend upon the sugar indus try .either . indirectly or directly,' for their livelihood. The pineapple indus try now is becoming .a' competitor of sugar 'In the numher of workirien it employs, but it Is comxsMveiy In its infancy. .' ':Vv Hawaii now sends 600,000 tons of cane sugar to the United: States an nually. The "mainland," as the Ha waiian ; people refer to the United States proper, produces annually 775, 000 tons of cane and beet sugar. The total production of maple sugar and molasses in the mainland is 15,000 tons. Cuba furnished 1,665000 tons, the Philippines and Porto Rico 340,000 tons and outside 1 sources, including Java and Germany, 105,000 tons. The total sugar consumption in the United States.. according to these figures. Is 3,500,000 tons annually. The price for the whole world . is- fixed every day at Hamburg. It is natural, the Ha waiian growers point out, that in the event of a tariff reduction the Ger man growers and dealers will do their utmost to Invade this country with their products. Just now Germany finds ready sale for its sugar at home as well as in free-trade England and other European countries.-Portland Oregonian.

PVORMANN MURDERS MOTHER AliDS LIFE PlIKELAUGHS 1 PIPE-DREAM (Continued from page one) "Where are there any professional swimming meets, I'd like to know?" said Rawlins. "Certainly there are not enough for a man to make a very good living out of them. I know though, that some persons here, have tried to get hold of Duke to make a few dollars out of managing him for a while, but thev haven't been manly -enough to come out in the open with their propositions. As to going on the stage, Duke Isn't Just cut out for an actor. There is nothing to that story." ';; ' "I'd like to meet the guy that wrote that story about me getting an offer of $lfO0 a week for 5S weeks to appear on the stage," commented Duke, "Maybe he can tell me whetcto find the man that made the offer.: I nevcr. heard of it before, and Td kind of like to get such an offer, believe me, iGee.J I'd hate to think what I wouldn't do for 58,000 simoleons! That's an awful lot of coin." "No," Duke said, in answer to a query, "I've not received any theatri cal offer of any kind yet I've never heard a proposition of that kind, until one of the boys tol d me about that story in the morning fjayer today." However, the theatrical otter or the lack of it Isn't worrying the champion to any extent In fact Duke Is' fortu nate.

After the San Francisco' contest he expects to go to Long Beach, and says he wants to see what he can do in a race scheduled for that place over a tbree-quarter-of-a-mile course,. In the open salt water. Reminded that the water probably will be pretty rough there for record- smashing, Duke said: "I don't mind that I like , the ron eh water and somehow I feel more at home in At than in the still water. I've never tried for a record in rough water and I'd like to make the at tempt, just to see what I can do." puke yesterday picked out his spe cial surfing board from among the lot at Wafkikl and will take It to Long Beach, wbere his performances In the surf should prove an enormous attrac tion to the Californians. Duke? also has an ambition to visit the beach resorts of Florida with his beloved 'surf ing-board, but he doubt less will have to forego that pleasure a few months, as few people Visit the Florida coast In the baking hot sum: mer months and the big hotels are vir tually closed until late in the fall.

A feature .will be a re plica of the famous volcano of Ki lauea. In addition to exhibits of the varipus products and resources of the islands there will be a lecture-room where - moving pictures, showing isl and scenes, will be on display.
