TO LAY 01 Tl'ATII For Ships Between San Francisco and I Honolulu. New York, June 11. A special to the Herald from Washington say: I Important work tor the benefit of commerce in the Pacific is io be per formed by the navy now that congress has auth-'iized the appropriation of JlOrt.Oi'O for oeea.li and lake survevs. Rear Admiral Bradford, chief" of the bureau of equipment, has approved a recommendation submitted by Com mander Todd for an elaborate charting of the triangle formed by the Hawaiian islands, the sotithermost point of the Philippines and the islands of Japan. It is also propdsed to establish a path between Honolulu and the Philippines to be followed by American wai ships, so that if any become disabled others following may pick them up. It is be lieved that merchant vessels will be prompt to adopt the route. There ia now no general path Germany has not been expected to join the survey of the Pacific, though it is belie'ed that when she learns of the action of this government she will fol low its example in making complete surveys of her Pacific islands. It is unil.'i stood, of course, that the United States can obtain more expedi tious results by co-operating with other nations. Japan has expressed her will ingness to chart the waters in the vicin ity of her islands, and Great Britain bas chartered to some extent the China Sea and the East Indies. Is it a burn?

New York, June 11. A special to the Times from Washington says: In making their calculations on car rying the house of representatives next fall most of the Republican arithmetic ians concede the probable loss of Mr. Boutelle's district in Maine. Mr. Bou telie has been renominated, and will doubtless be re-elected, but his physical condition is such as to make it very improbable that he will be able to at tend the lirst session of the Fifty-seventh congress. One of the most significant indica tions of the general belief that Mr. Boutelle will be unable to resume his duties for a long: time to come is the announcement just made that Repre sentative Foss of Illinois, will not take a vacation. He intends to put in the summer up to- the beginning of the ac tive part of the fall campaign in studying- matters pertaining: to the navy. He will visit the different naval stations, and otherwise study to make himself thoroughly expert in all naval matters. There is very little doubt that Mr. Foss will be chairman of the naval committee for a long time to come, if the Republicans retain control of the house. He is next to Mr. Boutelle on the committee, and has been acting chairman throughout this session. This chairmanship has been held open for Mr. Boutelle as a matter of courtesy, but Mr. Foss will probably become chairman tn name as well as in fact before long. Mr. Foss is one of the younger rep resentatives. He has narrowly escaped a blow which -would have ended his in fluence in naval affairs in the house. When "I'ncie Joe" Cannon, on the day before adjournment, humiliated Fcss by getting the house to take the naval ap propriation bill out of his hands and put It In those of Cannon, Moody and Shafroth, the young congressman was face to face with a serious blow to his prestige. Had Cannon and his colleagues suc ceeded in accomplishing what Foss did not, the latter's influence would have been badly broken. Cannon, however, failed even more completely than did Foss and the vote of lack of confidence was followed the next day by a vote of confidence. Naval affairs will there fore probably be in Mr. Foss' hands, unless Mr. Boutelle unexpectedly re covers during the next session. TO STAHT BUS LINE In Competition With St. Louis Transit Company Cars. St. Louis, June 11. The Central Trade and Labor Fnion proposes to establish a bus line in St. Louis to compete with and run parallel to the lines of the St Ixiuis Transit company, on which there is a strike, to be operated by union men. At a meeting last night, the first step was taken toward this end by the adop tion of a resolution to raise at least Jl'iti.eoo to purchase and equip the nec essary bus system. From tiie resolution adopted and the declarations of the speakers, henceforth the policy will be to win the strike if possible on the basis of a general boy cott, which in all its ramifications is to reach to all every industry in the city. The fare on a bus for a distance equal io that transvessel! by the street car line will be five cents. ON A NEW TACK. Union Labor in Chicago Starts Union Label Lyceum. Chicago, June 11. The Tribune says: Union labor has taken a new tack, and started what is to be known as the Union Label Lyceum of Chicago. The promoters of the movement declare that it is a strictly educational one, in which politics will not be allowed to cut any figure and questions of religion will be barred. At the same time it is acknowl edged that the main object of the move ment is to cultivate closer relations be tween the members of labor organiza tions and to assist one another as far as possible. Behind the movement is a scheme for the oiganization of ward clubs ail over the city, the preliminaries' of which were settled at a meeting last evening at the building trades headquarters. It is be lieved by those acquainted with the growth of the idea that the future of the organization will have an important bearing on politics, notwithstanding the protestations of the promoters that pol itics will be barred. . .
