More Than Twelve Hundred Miles Laid in a Week. San Francisco, Calif., December 20. Th? first link the great ocean cable which is to connect the United States with Hawaii has been laid and thu cable ship Silvertown is proeeeOing so rapidly with the work of laying the cable that it would not be surprising if a Christmas greeting from Governor Dole of Hawaii to President Koosevelt is sent over the cable from Honolulu cn Christmas day. At noun today 1,054 knots cable has been reeled out fiom the hold of the Silvertown, since leaving San Fran cisco and in spite of the heavy storm which somewhat retarded the work. If a slightly better ratio is maintained daring the next rive days with no storms or accidents to interfere with the work it is reasonable to expect that ummuiiiration with Honolulu w ill bo held on Christmas day. The Associated Press representative on board the Silvertown tiled the fol lowing ine.-':ag.' from the vessel at noon to-day: Latitude, 30.1S north: longitude 1J;i.oS wist.

Twelve or tiftcc n people are killed and about thirty more or less injured. The killed and injured wire riding in the rear car which was filled with passengers for Fresno, Cal.

Indianapolis, Ind., December 20. "It Is time to organize," is the keynote of four circulars being sent to manufac turers throughout the country by D. M. Tarry of Indianapolis. Mr. Parry is president of the National Associatioa of Manufacturers. He found his text In various resolutions of the recent American Federation of Labor conven tion at New Orleans. The circulars are directed more against organized labor in general than against the eight-hour law bill, which Mr. Parry has attacked in circulars recently. Referring to Ihe Max Hayes resolution adopted by the federation Mr. Parry says: "John Mitchell's United Mine Work ers organization cast 1,080 votes solid- iy icu- ims resolution, int: is the or ganization that evoked so much maud lin sent!ment and brought the whole country to its knees In the anthracite strike. "It is c-ii.fidentially prophesied that the socialists will be in full control of the trade unionist movement In the United States by the next A. F. of L, convention." The charge is made that Hayes' res olution means an attack on the pro ductive possession of all the money and private properties.

After a session of less than three hours, the senate today adjourned until January 5 next. Today's session was largely given up to an address by Senator Mor gan uMn the question of the construc tion of .n isthmian canal. The sena tor declared that it would be in the interest of the United States to resume negotiations with Nicaragua and Costa Rica with a view to utilizing the Nicaragua route for the reason that,' as he believed, if we should continue to depend upon the Panama route we would never have a canal. A number of bills passed and the ; conference report providing for the payment of the expenses of the anthra cite coal siriKe commission vu ugieeii ! to. The eight-hour latjor bill as amended I by the senate committee on education i and labor was reported to the senate from that committee, accompanied by a written statement of the commute' reason for its action. It is stated that the bill is substantially the same as the house bill, and it is favored by a ma jority of the senate committee. The report contains a review cf former fed eral legislation in favor of the eight hour system and also a summary of state enactments on the subject. Senator Jones of Arkansas introduc ed the following resolution: "Whereas, on -ctober 14, 1902. a sworn statement or petition was filed with the attorney general of the United States by William R.

The sherift j said that he did not consider boxing 1 as dangerous as football. "I have de- I t ided to take an expert with me to j the Corbett-McGovern contest." said j Mr. Dickson, "to see that things are as they should be. If the contest is j legal I do not see how 1 could prevent the men entering the ring." Governor Bliss, who is in the city, j announced his intention of conferring! with the sheriff today about the con- ) test. He said today: "I thought 1 j made my letter to the sherift plain ! enough.
