Aaserlsaa Katarmllats Kttsrs From the Afriess Deaert. Copyrighted lIK by Associated Press. London. Nov. 11—Prof. D. O. Elliott, leader of the Field Columbian Museum at the Chicago exposition, with Mr. E. C. Akeley, head of the taxidermist depart ment of the museum, left Southampton today by the 8U Louis, on their return to America, after a successful expedition Into fiomallland. where they went last Maroh for the purpose of making a nut ural history collection for the museum. Asked as to ths result of ths sxpsdition, Prof. Elliott said: "I have a very largs collection, chiefly of large mammals, probably the most complete ever brought out of any coun try by one party. No less than flfty-elght rases and barrels wers shipped direct from Aden to Chicago, where they will arrive at ths end of November. I ob tained more than 300 specimens of birds, nsh. insects and reptllss." In conversation with a representative of the Associated Press, Prof. Elliott said: "We left Berbers at the end of April with a caravan consisting of sixty-eight men. all armed with Bniders and Win chesters.. and flfty-slx camels, which were afterwards Increased to ninety eight. Our Intention was to explore cer tain districts of Somallland, between Ber bera and the river Chile. "During our stay In Africa we mads three distinct expeditions from the coast. The first was to the east of Berbera. to the Gobera plains and the range of the Oolls. This journey inland, which was undertaken expressly for the purpose of fettinr wild asses, occupied three weeks, he second was to the south of Berbera, \is Marnier* and the Jorato pass of the (lolls range, to the south or the Toyo plain. This trip lasted six weeks and was embarked upon because we wanted to get «pecitnens of Swain's haarte beste snd Clark's antelope, both of which are ex tremely rare, and of which very few sne. clmens hav*- ever come to Europe The third expedition lasted over two months. This time we went from Berbera and »ro*«»d the Hand desert by a route dis- by me over the MaridJen plain to it point twenty miles from Mllmll. Al together we were lu the interior six months and returned to Aden at the be ginning of October." Ankol regarding the character of the country visited, the professor said: "A lsrgf: portion of the districts visited by me were unknown to European*, a: 1 certainly had never been traversed by * naturalist before The whole country *»» abs-olutcly m waterie** desert. True, there w«s some kind of stuff with which to *NBti*|te our thirst btit the only water to be rot is from th-» pools left by the tains' or by digying beneath the psrthed rtver beds.

Tbo opec tscslsr todaHkt raid spaa tbo electric light wires of tho Commercial Electric Light a Power Company conducted last summer by Acting Mayor Augeio Vance Paweect, area recalled by the de cision of Judge Pritchard. tn the ault brought against the city by the company, whiob woo rendered today. In tbo court's opinion. Mayor Fawceu and hla army of electricians were nothing more than mid night marauder* and rioter* against whom criminal proioodtim might property bo brought Tbo language and effect of (bo decision oauaod a aenoation tn oficial circles, On receipt of tbo intelligence that tbo court had decided against the city. ' the city council thla afternoon passed a resolution directing Mayor Orr to notify the com pany to remove lta wtrea from tho city'* pole* within sixty day a. Tbo reeoluUon reads as follows: "Whereas, It appears la the opinion rendered by Judge Pritcbard tn the case of the Commercial Light a Power Com pany va the city of Taooma. that tn order to terminate a certain oontract aasde be tween tbo Commercial Company and the Tacoma Light and Water Company, re garding tba use of tbo poles now o«ncd by toe city. It Is necessary for the council to authorise notice to be served upon the Commercial Company of tho intention on tho part of tha city to terminate aald con tract; "Now. therefore, without recognising the existence or binding force of **id con tract. which is hereby declared terminated, if it exists, be it "Heoclved by the,city council of the city of Taooma. That the mayor is hereby au thorised, empowered ana requested with all rpeed possible to sign, send and deliver to the said Commercial Company such no tice as rosy be necessary to speedily ter minate the aald contract. If it exists, and requiring the aald Commercial Company to remove its wires and all thlnga pertain ing thereto from the city poleo at the earliest possible moment." The resolution also directed tbo board of public works to remove the city's wires from the pole* of the Commercial company with all dispatch possible. It was adopted by a unanimous vote. Evidently the war between the city and its competitor In the electric lighting busi ness Is to continue. Ever since the city came Into possession of the plant of the Tacoma Light and Water Company, there ha* mnrf nr 'o'vtn the municipality and the Commercial Electric Light and Power Company, which pos sessed a franchise for lighting and furnish ing electric power. When tho city at tempted to cut rat«»s it was met with an injunction, secured by the company. Fin ally. Acting Mayor Fawcett startled the community one summer morning by atoeh tng the wires of the company right left' wherever they oocupied the cross nrma on the city's poles. It ep peara that the city had inherit ed an agreement from the light and water company whereby the Commercial Company was allowed to use its poles. The agreement was to be broken by either party only upon serving sixty days notice. The Commercial Company thereafter secured an Injunction against Fawoett and the city upon a showing that this clause In the sgreement had not been complied with. The Commercial Company owns a gas plant, which will enable H to cut the rates for residence and business lighting. The city has given notice to the company that It must get off the city's poles. Thus the controversy stands. The dogs of war have been let aiip, and it will be a pretty fight. The court thus described Mayor Faw cett's action in the premise*: The arbitrary removal by Mayor Faw cott and the officers of the cltv was a wrong, and one that might be redressed under criminal jurisdiction of the cour? a remedy might be sought to punish those who were engaged in these actsss * c,ion mI * ht ** tutea to iiwpeach th® mayor for conduct unbecoming an officer occupying the ex alted position he did. "In actions of such character the fact that such parties proceeded in the man ner they did. viz , that of the midnight marauder. Instead of in the ordinary mode adopted by business men to assert their rights, might make a great d£?Tf difference as hearing upon the question of malice and evil design. As stated by the supreme court of Pennsylvania in the appeal of the Easton Railway Company, "they were merely trespassers and rioters, and liable civilly and criminally as f>uch.' We are emphatic upon this point because we do not wish to be misunderstood. Th*re is H crowing disposition in this commonwealth, es pecially upon the part of corpora lions private as well as municipal, to take the law into their own hands and settle controversies by force instead of appealing to the courts to redress their wrongs and enforce their rights in tO» orderly and peaceable manner " ROGERS REJECTS THE CROWR.

Favored Oaee Prefer ta Da Inside Dety, Leaving Tbelr Censredeo te Be BnEeted by Sterne at See ■ Wken a fleet Cornea, tbo Service le laadegante. Soeelteei Caes ins Leee ef a Vessel—leveetige tiee ta Be Made. Port Townsend. Nov. 14 —Special.—Trou ble among the pilots la brewing, and an interesting controversy will soon be launched, which will prove highly enter «»<ptny to the marine interest* of Puget sound. Before the board of pilot commis sioners today complaint was filed by two active pilots, said to be Capts. Power* and Nichols, that other than regularly exam ined and duly qualified pilots were engaged in the business of piloting vessels. The complainants further allege that there are certain pilots who passed the examina tion and agreed to abide by the rules of the board that now refuse to assume their share of the responsibility of going on duty at Cape Flattery, and contributing to the support of the pilot boat. The pi lots who have performed Cape service say that 6 per cent, of their earnings Is with held by the board, which the actively en gaged pilots, as they call themselves, say entitles them to the protection of the law, and that the board should see that their rights are guarded. The commissioners, composed of Capt E. Biondl, Capt. C. H. Jones and Mr. F- Al Bartlett, limited the number of pilots to six, and refused to allow others to take the examination, claiming that there was not more than enough work to support that number. Nichols snd Powers took the examination and In good faith at tempted to perform the duties required by law and by the board. Then, as one of the commissioners and afterwards one of the pilots said to a Post-Intelligencer cor respondent, Capt- Gatter, pilot for the Northern Pacific steamship line; Capt. Ollmore, pilot for the Nippon Tusen Kalsha. Capt. DeLano. a merchant of Ta coma, and Capt. Jordison, of the steamer Flyer, passed the examination, leading the board, it Is said, to understand that they would Inaugurate an active service at Cape Flattery. DeLano and Jordison did put In two or three week* at the Cape during the summer, but they say that neither Gilmcre nor Gatter deigned to go down to the Cape and pilot vessels to their respective destinations. Gatter meets his steamers at Victoria, and Gllmore comes to Port Townsend to bosrd the Japanese liners. Powers and Nichols are trying to ccn pel these two men to assume part of the expense and dangers Incidental to Cape Flattery pilotage. Then connes another phase. The ptlots aver that other than regularly llcsnsed pilots havs taken vessels tn and out of the Sound. The board called for verified complaints, saying action toward enforc ing the law would be Instituted at once. Reference, it is said, is made to one of the ex-pilot commissioners, whose resignation was called for by Gov. IfeGraw, and to another man who lives in Beattle. In speaking of the matter tonight one of the ccrimissioners said: "If upon Investigation we find that the licensed pilots are not living up -<o the laws and regulations, we will in all prob ability revoke their licenses, and should they persist in piloting vessels thereafter, we will prosecute them to the full ex tent of the law. We are endeavoring to perfect an efficient pilot service off the entrance to the Straits of Juan de Fuca, and every licensed pilot must assume part of the duties. It is the duty of the board to remove any pilot who refuses to per form that service. It is unfair that four of the pilots should reap the cream of the business and discriminate agalnat the other two by compelling them to remain at the Cape and not allowing them to board or pilot the steamers which ths others board later on somewhere up th« Straits, after all the dangers Incidental to navigation are passed. There is a fair living for six good men. but two pilots at the Cape, as was demonstrated several times last summer, are Insufficient when a fle*-t of vessels arrives In the vicinity of the entrance to the Straits. Then It often bapens that when the two pilot* en gage vessel* There are no others to at tend to the remainder of the fleet. When a man takes the examination he must perform the duties; not take all of the easy Jobs and keep others from doing likewise," Foreign shipmasters In particular are anxious to have a good pilot service es tablished at the Cape. The service last summer was highly appreciated by ths master* owners and Insurant romps. r.;e« The dangers and hardships inci to t+f »ri" srv r»' t »n sneered at. consequently not many of the i-i.oi. * - ar >i K kli>u f -«■ v- ice. When any piloting Is to be done up Sound, these Cape pilots are discriminat ed against, it is claimed, and tbe work iroes to what the Cape pUota term "the kid gloved brigade." The board ts to meet again next Satur day. and probably determine whether any licenses should be revoked or prosecu- tions commenced. Tbe opponents to the service say that the law is Invalid and unconstitutional, and that the supreme court will so deciare it. DROH XKn OFF OAK BAY. J. G. Mlllrr end J. H.
