Pacific Mail liners from San Fran cisco after November 1. "We bear that the vessels will be laid up indefinitely at San Francisco when they return from their Oriental runs." said one officer in the Korea today. There was no one in an official ca lclty on board the vessel who was willing to predict the outcome of the reported decision upon the part of the Pacific Mail directorate regarding the retirement of the fleet. "They may go" back Into service under a Japanese or Chinese flag for all that we know," was said. The Korea met mlllpond weather the last few days of its trip to the Hawaiian Islands.

'PENDULUM' PLAN TO DE TRIED OUT IN F-4 SALVAGE Naval Officers Watch Results of New Experiment With Great Interest ABRUPT SLOPE OF BOTTOM PROVES GREAT HANDICAP! Difficulty of Hauling 300 Tons Up Steep Incline Is Tremendous The sunken submarine F-I was raised eight feet this morning, and towed approximately 60 feet shore ward. Salvage operations were halt d hv the nartinz of one of the lines which held the stern of the submar-j senate concerning the pay t of a lne to the lifting scows, and this will 'gum approximating 12,O03f H. Ki bave to be repaired before work can shi. Japanese . caterer-conk..,. tor, 'for be resumed. According to what luck is met with in getting a new line fast, operations will be resumed. The use of the Maryland as a tow- tug vessel proved a success and while navy officers are extremely conserva- 1 Hva In their nredirtlons. it seems to opinion that the present pla' operations is the right one. At-2 -o'clock this afternoon actual jutely no stretch left in the lines thit connect the F-4 with the lifting scows. Eight feet more cable Is reeled In and therefore a lift of eight feet has been secured. The pull Inshore can only be estimated and the figures range from 60 to 75 feet With the Maryland on the job as a towing vessel, it Is hoped that sub- sianuai . suorewara progress wui uv made with the sunken submarine F-4 within the next few hours. Much de pends on the developments of this afternoon, and if the plan now in op eration fails, those In charge of the salvage work will be hard pressed for a new cne. There Is no disposition toward pessimism by the navy offi cers who have the task in hand, but It is generally conceded that the un dertaking is stupendous, and that a large element of luck will be -essential to a successful conclusion. This morning shortly before 8 o'clock the Maryland worked her way I out from the navy dock and maneu vered into position shoreward from the lifting scowg from which the sub marine is suspended fore and aft by four wire cables. It took all morning to get the cruiser into position and pass the towing gear from the Mary land to the scows, the work being ac complished, however, without hitch or accident Weather conditions greatly favor operations, the sea be ing as smooth as the proverbial mill pond, and there being no wind to in . terfere with operations. F.4 t0 gwlng out far enough to enable a considerable lateral move ment to be secured before she grounds on the slope of the sea floor. The scows could then slack off to a position directly above the submarine, take up the slack on their hoisting gear, and repeat the shoreward rush and pendulum swing. Were the slope of the bottom less abrupt ordinary pontoon methods would probably accomplish results, but the sea floor rises so abruptly that with an ordinary lift of six to ten feet only a very short distance can be gained toward shore. There is the chance that with the I tremendous towing power of the Maryland, something will be carried away cn the scows or on the submar ine itself, but this is a chance that must be taken. It is figured by the navy men that the tow line itself will part before the four heavy wire cables .which hold the submarine in a sling will give way. SUGAR SAN FRANCISCO, CaU April 23.

Cohan, social represen tative of the Gaumont company, who has been recording wir's tragedies and high lights on the movie film, is in Honolulu again, a passenger in the Korea, bound for the Far East. No vember 20 last Cohan was here, head ed in the same direction. At that time he had circled the gl.)le three- times during the year and now he his added another lap of the globe to his reccrd. Cohan was a victim of the tmden's raids in Orrln(al waters and after ieav ing here he;, again became connected with the German hawk, this time, how ever, as a photographer of her finish on the rocks of Cocos island. After leaving Honolulu last Novem ber Cohan proceeded to China, and took pictures round Tsingtau- He then went through ,the Suez canal and ac companied "New Zealand ?nd Austra lian troops tf the front in France, seeing, he said , today, the first ad vance of theiAllies fleet in the bom bardment of che Dardanelles. "I left the battle-grounds of France only a few weeks ago," said Cohan this, morning, ''2nd I found conditions far worse on this visit than when I left there last October. The horrors of this war can never be described.

I am hurrying out to the Far Est again, because it is ex pected that big things will be doing there shortly. "This trench warfare tends to dull the senses, so that the men who are doing the actual fighting get more or less used to sights that the average man couldn't stand. In France on this last trip,-1 saw one soldier eating his ration, nd using the body of a dead comrade for a table. It is sometimes two or three "days' before bodies can be collected for burial and the pres ence of death has ceased to mean any thing at all to most of the soldiers. The stench is frightful. "Conditions for caring for the wounded are poor, s a rule," con tinued Cohan. "Even if men are pick ed up soon after they fair they are likely to spend a whole night in an ambulance before they can get to the field hospitals." When here last Cohan gave per sonal testimony as to German abuses in Belgium. When questioned on this subject today he said: "You hear nothing more about Ger man atrocities now. That . seems to be all over with. There are no more complaints on that score." Cohan has taken many thousands of feet of film since his last visit here. Some of the films will never be shown, being entirely too gruesome for public exhibition. These have a certain historic 'and military value and are made for that reason. splMjapan Anti-Government Parties Ar ranging Demonstrations, Say Tokio Despatch (Special to Ntppn JijL) TOKIO. Jaoan. April 22 Anti-eov- ernment parties are arranging mass meetings In Tokio to voice opposition to the government's, policy in the ne gotiations with China. The newspa pers, supported by the anti-govern ment parties, are attempting to incite the people against Okuma's enforce ment of the demands. The Nippu Jiji is of the opinion that the Seiyukai party, still smarting with the defeat at .the recent election, is responsible for the movement. For the first time In the history of Japan public opinion has split on its foreign policy. When war was declared on China in 1894 the entire nation backed the Japanese government in all the poli cies of the period. Likewise during the war with Russia the Japanese na- j tion was united ;n its. foreign policy. , The Jiji predicts grave results in ternally if the mass meetings are as effective as the leaders hope to 'make them.

He illustrated grauh- ically the development of the moral force by effort and action with the example of the runner who gets his "second wind" by. effort.
