Price gave balloon ascensions and parachute drops in Honolulu. This is his seventh tour of the world. Again referring to his card, it is found that Captain Price is member of the Aero Club of America, the inventor of the airship Messenger and of the balloon cannon) act. He is also a, designer ana" builder of alr Bhlps, aeroplanes, balloons and para chutes, and he gives instructions in aeronautics and furnishes exhibitions at any time and place. Thirteen years and the perilous vocation of his life .from boyhood havo scarcely set a mark on the gallant voyager of the empyrean. Captain Price Is the same husky and sturdy athlete of yore, with a strongly built head crowned with a thick mop of black hair, and set upon a neck that suggests' an unbreakable guarantee. Moreover, hp wears the old genial smile as uncome-off-ablo as President Taft's. All this about him should be inter esting to the people of Honolulu, not not merely because Captain Price is the first flying man of the new avia tion era to pass through here, but be cause he is coming again t o make a stay and give exhibitions of his aero- .nautic craft,. ..Bofore. giving the-de- LOU TOK SDQN TO 11 11IH SAN FRANCISCO, December G.

With a view to enabling any one to deter mine tho denomination of a postago stamp at a glance. Postmaster Gen eral Hitchcock has decided to have printed, as an experiment the ten cent Stamp in a rich brown Ink on yellow paper. If tho experiment proves a success, other stamps of a higher de nization will be so printed. A sup ply of the new stamps will be placed on sale as soon as possible.

Wo aro still engaged in perfecting our machine, among oth er improvements designing an auto matic balance that will prevent it from capsizing in a wind. Also wo are devising a lifting process that will ob viate the necessity of giving the ma chine a run aloDS the ground to make it rise. "We had been thinking of making a voyage in the Messenger from here to San Francisco, but coming down in the Asia found that the trade wind was too constant and strong to navi gate an airship against. "We are going through to Manila, where wo shall give exhibitions at tho carnival if we can make a deal witn tho management. First, however, we are going to make a stop at Hongkong, though we have no engagement tnere. 'lAfter visiting Manila we will go farther into the Orient. We expect to give performances before the King ot Slam, and from that country go to India. 1 nope we shall return this way .lu-three or four .months from now and tails of his plans it may be mentioned give flying exhibitions if arrangements that Captain Price was about the lastcan be made. We cannot make a white acquaintance of tho late Vol-flight in the Messenger without a gua cano Marshall to see him alive. rantee of fifteen hundred dollars. You "Yes, I have the last photograph of old VolcanTj," he. said yesterday. "It was taken while he was standing jjy the generator of my balloon in Shang hai, when I was about to make an as cent. Volcano .Marshall had arranged to go up with me and write up the as cent for the papers. But he left tho ground on somo errand and although I "waited an hour or two he did not re turn and I made the trip wltho'ut him. At four o'clock that afternoon I heard he was dead." Asked, after the first exchange of greeaings, about his reported inten tion to exhibit in Honolulu, Captain Price said: "I am sorry that the stay of the Asia in port is so short that I cannot even show the people our airship and aero ' place. It would take too long to get the parts put of the ship and- unpack them. "The airship Messenger is a dirigible balloon, the balloon part being sixty feet in length. We do not have a car but a framework forty-five feet long suspended to the balloon, carrying the motor, propeller and rudder. The. balloon is of silk properly ' reinforced with metallic braces. "She is a beauty all right. Always see the hydrogen gas is expensive. It requires six tons of sulphuric acid, three and a half tons of Iron turnings and eighteen tons of water to inflate this monster airship. But it is the sight of a lifetime to see her sail around far above the solid earth. "We did not wait to take part in aviation week at Los Angeles because we could not get satisfactory arran gements with the people handling tho affair." Tne "we" in Captain Price's conver sation Is duo to the fact that he has a partner in his present tour. This is Ivy Baldwin a son of one of the famous 3aldwln brothn, one of whom was the first man to make a parachute jump from a balloon in midair. THE PECULIAR MOTION of railway cara cause many to suffer from dizziness, sick stomach' and neaaacne car sicitness. This very annoying trouble Is always cured by taking Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Pllb, the "Little Comrorters." They relievo the pain, and soothe the nerves so that all unpleasant sensations disap pear like magic. First package ben efits, or money back.

Ho is merely relieved from his duties as yard cap tain, enabling him to give more time to other details of the big government institution which are constantly de manding more' and more of his attention. In t,he first dispatch received there was an intimation that the removal of Captain Young was a development of the recent investigation into Mare Island management. Captain Young had not been in any manner concerned with these investigations, however, and ho was at a loss to explain the meaning of the order. Tho explanatory dispatch of yester day sets forth that Captain Young is relieved of such duties as he per formed as captain of thevard. and that tney are to be' assumed by Cap tain Tappan, who baa been ordered here for that purpose from Philadel phia, The Navy Departfnent says that this change is not in any way an indica tion ot lack of confidence in the com mandant, but, an acknowledgement of the growing importance of the Mare island institution. The department ex pects prompt and satisfactory results from its plan of reorganization as re cently promulgated by v Secretary Meyer. The whole scheme of that reorgani zation was the concentration of power in one man, even as to the decision or questions arising at,-the yard affect ing hulls and machinery. Since the announcement by President Taft op the selection of Pearl Harbor as the Pacific base for tho fleet,. attention has been' concentrated by the department on the Mare Island yard. ' ' Captain Tappan will retain his grade and position for two years, which win be the length of term of yard cap tains under the reorganization rftan. Commandant Young, it is under stood, will be raised to the rank of rear-admiral next year. H. HEME 0 1 QUESTION OF TRANSFER OF THE SALOON LICENSE SAID TO HAVE A PERSONAL ELEMENT.
