The Sec retary of War today transmitted to the House of Representatives a num ber of reports regarding the trans port service on the Pacific. These cover a series of special investiga tions into the entire service5 practi cally down to date. They reveal among other things, a state of af fairs which resulted in the transfer of Major Oscar F. Iong, general superintendent of the transport ser vice; enforced the resignation of Captain John Barnesoii, marine superintendent of the transport service, and will, no doubt, lead to a reorganization of the service. While there is nothing in these re ports reflecting upon the integrity or ability of Major Long, the cor respondence clearly shows that the Secretary of War reached the con clusion that Major Long could be of greater service to the depart ment in another field. Regarding Captain John Harnc son, it is charged that he was a member of the firm of Barneson & Chilcott of Seattle after he assumed the office of marine superintendent of the transport service, and as a member of that firm chartered two vessels, the Morgan City and Cen tennial, to the Gdvernment. The reports show great extravagance of the conduct of the service during the early period with a later im provement. It concludes by prais ing the general superintendents and assistants lor the herculean task performed. Charges against Captain Harne son are contained in a supplemental report by Lieutenant-Colonel John L. Chamberlain, Inspector-General, dated San Francisco, August 12, 1 901. In this he states that the steamers Morgan City and Centen nial were chartered to the Govern ment by Barneson & Chilcott in January, 1899. The charter papers were signed by John Barnesoii on account of the firm. The charter the Morgan City was renewed on July 1, 1899, Barneson & Chilcott still acting as agents for the owners. I From the date of the charter until I the sale of the Centennial in July, 1899, nml until the loss of the Mor gan City, September 2, 1899, most of the vouchers were signed by John Barneson for Barnesoii & Chilcott. Most of the checks in payment for the same were receipt ed for and received by him. Infection From Clgnr Clippers. In these days of general micro biphobia, new perils to health and life are constantly unfolding them selves before our troubled visions. Some of these, as given out, are without question exaggerated and comparatively negligible; others, however, are worthy of some atten tion. The dangers from certain methods sometimes employed by cigarmakers were recognized long ago, even before the popular fear of germs had been aroused. The latest danger from this source is lloir Much Per Word Will II Cost to Talk With Frisco. Mr. Ward, general manager of the Commercial Pacific Cable Co., in an interview in the Kxaminer said: "Mr. Mackay has taken upon himself the responsibility of carry ing out this work. A more pa triotic American docs not live. He always desired to see a Pacific cable laid; he felt the country needed it. He got tired of the fighting in Con gress for several years over differ ent bills, and decided, after Con gress adjourned last session, to take up the scheme without any aid from the government. The public owes a great deal to Mr. Mackay. He has saved the community mil lions of dollars by bringing the rates down fifty per cent on the Atlantic, as well lis considerably reducing the rates on the land lines. The service, too, has been greatly improved since wc started, on both laud and sea. Business is done every day between New York and London in two or three minutes, which formerly took hours, and we shall be able to exchange mes sages witu Manila and Uliiua, across the Pacific, 111 hlteen min utes. This quick service will stim ulate business more than anything else. "We propose making the rate to Honolulu 50 cents per word until the cable is completed to Manila, when we shall reduce it to 35 cents. We intend to make the tariff from San Francisco to Manila and China Si per word. The present rate is Si. 78. and yet. with all these re ductions I have spoken ot, you may have observed that wc are charged by Mr. Corliss, member of Congress fur Michigan, with vio lating the law by combining to 'raise' rates.

During the past two or three years agents of persons interested in cork culture have beer, turning up in all parts of the tropics, test ing the soil and making general observations of conditions. Inter views with these agents from time to time have elicited the informa tion that, notwithstanding the re port of the French Journal Ofliciel, the outlook in the cork trade is by no means brilliant. Indeed, some pessimists in that quarter are in clined to think that a few years hence there will be a famine in that article. From the statements of these agents it would appear as if this would be true, lo a certain ex tent, unless some new field is opened for the propagation of cork trees. Hawaii has the necessary quali fications to make cork culture suc cessful, and already it is reported that the industry is making a fair start; cork-oak acorns are being imported there for planting. This is almost sure to be a good thing for Hawaii. There is money in the venture apparently, for, ac cording to authorities on the sub ject, the supply of cork from Spain, France and Algeria is becoming very limited owing to the rough treatment given to the trees there while young. Of course, it is contended by some that the demand lor cork is indicated, according to the news-' not likely to increase very largely, papers, in a wattling of the Chi- owing to the growing popularity of cago board of health, which pro- Pa,ent mctal cal)S for bo"les- Ht, ..ounces the -mechanical cigar- "riViS""1 S" J?!?1"1 clippers in general use where so i0IIg as ti1(. consumption of wine For Terms of Sale, which are equivalent to San Francisco prices with fieight and other charges added, address: L.

It is a common practice for a smoker to moisten the tip of his cigar with saliva before inserting it into the clipping machine; he thus leaves whatever pathogenic germs his mouth can convey to infect the next coiner. A continual series of I such procedures can, it is easily imagined, make these little con veniences excessively dangerous disease-promoters. There is a still further danger to be considered: the infected clippings are not thrown nway or destroyed, but serve, at least in many cases, to meet the demand for tobacco in some other form, as cigarette or snuff material, which are other agents for spreading infection. increases, so will the demand lor good corks. Cork is a very neces sary article in the wine trade, for wine is helped to maturity by the ! porous nature of cork, which ad-1 mits the oxygen necessary for oxi dization and, so far, no substitute for it has been discovered. ! sotMUSf G2sf1 W H3 V A Patented Coinh.
