THE PEARLS OF THE ILLINOIS Very tittle pearling was done on the Illinois previous to 1892, although some years before this dat occa sional pearl hunters made frequent trips and extended investigations from time to time over the greater part of the river. During the earlier period pearls alone were the object of the search, there being no particu lar demand for the shells, and, be sides, the pearler of that day had neither time nor inclination to save them; they were left after examine tlon, usually in smnll piles along the shore as a waste product. If a lo callty in which he was working did not show immediate results he would move further along, always hoping and expecting to find a mussel bed which would produce a pearl of con siderable value, thus amply repaying him for his. time and outfit The WILSON Will SEND (Continued From Page One) sent to the canal zone at any moment when they are needed to prevent the use of radio apparatus for any un neutral act by ships of any belligerent nation." The probability Is that some of the cruisers now on the west coast of Mexico will be sent to the zone instead of destroyers, ' ' At the British Embassy it is sug gested that the British colliers wbich are alleged to have been using their tireless within territorial waters of the canal zone may not have received word of canal regulations on this point, as these only reached London yester day. British officials state that Great Britain has no objection whatsoever to the enforcement by the Unite States of the wireless regulations which the latter has proclaimed, and has been in sympathy with the censorship idea from the outbreak of the war. It is pointed out by high officials of the Washington government in this con nection that belligerent warships, after being given due warning, probably will not use their radio apparatus within the three-mile limit, as it is easy for them to move out a few miles to the high seas, where there is no prohibi tion. NEED ARMY AT CANAL. Naval Officer Says U. S. Not Well Prepared. j WASHINGTON, Dec. 15. Com mander Sterling, of the Atlantic fleet submarine flotilla, inresponse to a ser ies of questions before the house naval committee regarding the preparedness of the United States to defend the Pan ama canal In case of war, expressed the opinion that a large mobile army would be required in addition to the navy, to protect and keep the canal open. Sterling pointed out that the lack of base would handicap operations of my hostile navy against the cah'al. The nearest foreign base, he said, is Jamaica, a British possession. Reply ing to the qutstlon of Representative Farr of Pennsylvania, if the I nited States was prepared to defend the can al against "a navy of any size, say that of Germany," Sterling said: "Not very well prepared." Questioned about the Pacific Coast, he said he thought both coasts of the United States woidd be equally as safe, so long as the canal could be kept open for the passage of a fleet. pearl hunters are indeed the pioneers of the mussel industry, and in their extensive search for the elusive gein; they have usually found not only th best mussel streams of the country. but the best beos and the morn pro ductive portions of the rivers as wed. At the present time it might be said that th pearls and slugs are o secondary consideration, and when found are regarded by the mussel fishermen as so much clear profit. The sale of slugs is generally suf ficient to meet the actual running expenses of the camp, and a ienrl is considered as so much extra. Keardstown, 111., is a center for pearl buyers, and during the shelling season buyers are there from Paris, New York and other places, besides the local dealers. One man claim-! to have bought $20,000 worth of pearls and slugs along this river in twenty days. No particular work was done dur ing the present survey toward the study of the origin of pearls; how ever a number of distomids and cyst- forming parasites were observed in the meats of the mussels. The Il linois is a good river on which t carry on scientific pearl investiga tions, as It is rich in pearl mussels and" affords many retired places ind favorable mussel beds especially suit ed to pearl study. Among the most interesting localities for observing pearl formation and development mav be mentioned Peoria lake. Havana, Bath, Beardstown. 'Meredo.sla, Pearl and Hardin, at which places, as well at many others, excellent pearls have been found, and no doubt th.-re are many more there yet to be taken.
