For Ships Between San Francisco and I
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.

Defeat of Boutelle is Considered Prob
able. 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
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
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.
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.
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. . .
