SHIP SUBSIDY
PLANS TO AID
RYAN URGED
FRUIT COMPANY TO MAKE THIS
HOME PORT
PRESIDENT OUTLINES IMPOR-
TANCE OF DEAL
As Municipality Is Unable to Assist, It
Is Proposed That Commercial
Interests Further
Project
The Los Angeles board of harbor
commissioners met yesterday after
noon to consider what they believe is
one of the most important projects
yet presented for the deliberation of
that body—the plan of President T. F.
Ryan of the Pacific Fruit company
to make Los Angeles the base of op
erations and the home port of an in
dependent steamship line controlling;
one of the most valuable industries of
Mexico, with all its tremendous out
put.
Mr. Ryan's plan Is considered ex
tremely Important, and according to
Secretary A. P. Fleming of the board
of harbor commissioners was strongly
Indorsed, but owing to a. clause in the
state constitution, Los Angeles, as a
municipality, is unable to Indorse or
aid the project. Therefore, it is be
lieved by Secretary Fleming 1, the har
bor commissioners will urge that the
prominent business men of Los An
geles, represented by the Jobbers' as
sociation and the chamber of com
merce, Merchants and Manufacturers
association, etc., lend aid to the plan
and devise some means whereby a
subsidy may be granted.
Frank P. Urcgson, traffic manager
of the Los Angeles Jobbers' associa
tion, submitted the plans of the project
to the harbor commission.
Statistics compiled to Indicate the
advantage of having the Ryan steam
ships call at Los Angeles harbor also |
were presented.
Mr. Ryan opera! several of the
finest and most profitable plantation
in Mexico, the principal product of
which is bananas. The importance ol
this industry to Southern California
was not realized until it was brought
out that 120,000 bunches of bananas
are shipped to Los Angeles every
month. Over 150,000 bunches are
■hipped to California, Arizona, Ne
vada and New Mexico each month, or
3600 carloads a year.
Anxious to Come Here
The Ryan company asks only a guar
anty of 12,000 tons annually, when he
Will make this the basis of his im
mense operations, give the business In
terests of Southern California direct
intercourse with the ports of Mexico,
including Port Manzanillo, and open up
one of the richest regions in the new
world for the southwest American
farmers, cattlemen, horticulturists and
other producers.
Last year the port of New Orleans
handled over 1,000,000 bunches of
bananas, a major portion of which, if
not over two-thirds, would come to
Los Angeles, it is said, if Mr. Ryan's
project is successful.
Mr. Ryan, in his report, states that
he is anxious to live in Los Angeles,
and for that reason wishes, to make it
the base of his operations. His state
ment to the Jobbers' association and
other business organizations of the
city says:
■■1 am now interested In the opera
tion of steamers between Manzanillo
and the west coast of the United
States, principally for the purpose of
handling fruit, northbound, and have
made San Francisco the port of call
on the initial trips. I propose to con
tinue this service and give the people
of Los Angeles a guaranteed service
between the port of Ban Pedro and
Manzanillo, touching at all Important
intermediate ports, and especially such
ports as are favored with railroad
connections to the interior of Mexico.
This service will be regulated by the
transportation of bananas, northbound,
subject to a guaranteed service of fif
teen days or better.
"Upon the part of the merchants of
Los Angeles I should want a guaran
teed tonnage equal to 12,000 tons a
year, or its equivalent, the equivalent
to be based upon nn average of the
existing tariffs of the Pacific Coast
Steamship company, or the Cosmos
line, taking the average distance nnd
rates, per schedule and classification.
"I should expect to credit Los An
geles on tonnage with the revenue ac
cruing from passengers to and from
San Pedro, and would also credit
freight coming from the Interior and
moving on our boats from San Pedro,
including freight transshipped from
one vessel to another at San Pedro.
"I would agree to co-operate in the
equalization of rates between Los An
geles and the port it San Pedro,
through rates in no case to be higher
than the average rate from San Fran
cisco to the Mexican ports involved.
"The boats to be used shall he of
suitable character and of nt least 600
tons burden —the passenger accommo
dations to be strictly first class."
Import and Export Figures
Mr. Ryan also submits the following '
verified table of imports and exports, <
Fhowlng what immense trade is be
ing diverted to New Orleans and else- i
•where, and Indicating the importance
of a serious consideration of his will- 1
ingness to bring his vessels here. This ■•

LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, MARCH 15, 1910,
TARIFF REMOVAL
AIDS ISLANDERS
FILIPINOS COMPELLED TO DO
WORK, SAYS OFFICIAL
TREASURER OF MORO PROVINCE
HERE ON VISIT
Natives Dislike Free Trade with the
United States but Meet New
Conditions with Renewed
Energy
The removal of the tariff from im
ports and expoits to and from the Phil
ippine islands lias affected the United
States' far eastern possessions for good
as nothing else could affect them, ac
cording to F. A. Thompson, United
States treasurer for the province of
Moro on Mindanao island, who Is here
on liis vacation.
"The removal of the tariff has done
one thing which no amount of legisla
tion could have done," said .Mr. Thomp
son yesterday at the tlollcnbeck. "It
has awakened tii«' natives to the tact
that they must get in and work and
progress a little if they wish to con
tinue to exist. The natives fought the
removal of the tariff to the best of
their ability. The more educated Of tlie
people realized the import of letting
American goods into the islands free,
and tried to avoid it. However, now ,
that they see their effort* were useless,
they arc already beginning to hustle f
and compete with the Americans.
"The great trouble with the natives
of the Philippines Is that they disliko
to Change anything. That was why
they wanted tin 1 tariff. The removal
of that meant that Mr. Filipino would
have to quit his easy-going ways aid
compete with outsiders. .Naturally In
hated to do that. He is making the
best of it now, and really doing very
Well at il. Why, every newspaper and
magaslne on the island is commenting
in current issues on the prosperity of
the islands.
"Another thing the removal of the
tariff did which will greatly advance
the islands is to bring about the intro- |
dm tion of much new capital into them, j
Just before I left for the United States I
some investors bought up 5000 acres of
tobacco plantations. Later it was made
public that it was the American To
bacco company which had made lie
purchase and that they intended to
buy up more land.
"Almost at the same time several
thousand acres of sugar plantations
were snapped up by outside capital.
This purchase was also supposed to ,
have been made by individuals, but it
soon developed that the sugar trust
was the owner of It, and both i
great corporations are making ready to
develop the islands' resourci ■ In the
■ and sugar industry."
Mr, Thompson has lived in the Phil
ippines for the past twelve years and Is
thoroughly familiar with them. He
will retire from the office of treasurer
June 1, and will then engage entirely
In the rubber and cocoanut business.
He arrived yesterday from Washing
ton, where he filed hi* resignation re- j
cently, and will leave in a few days
for San Francisco to take ship from
there to the islands. He is accompanied
by his wife.
ONE DAY'S PAY COST OF
VIOLATING TRAFFIC LAW
J, C. Jensen Says It's a Shame, as He
Was Trying to Escape
Car
"It's a shame to be compelled to have
to pay a line for driving faster than a
walk across a crossing." said J. C,
Jensen, stable foreman for the Maler
Brewing company, when he was tried
in police court yesterday for a violation
of tin' traffic ordinance. "I make only
J2 a day. and work ten hours a d ly at
that. I had to hurry up to escape be
ing strui k by a car and am very care
ful about crossing the streets."
"But this witness who wits sum
moned by Patrolman Mosler says that
you trotted your team across the street
without any necessity for doing so,"
said Judge Frederlckson.
"I am surprised at that man making
that statement," said Jensen. "Why,
1 have known him for live years and
know him as well as my own dog.
There must l>" something back of this."
"Two dollars or two days," an
nounced the judge.
"Well, here goes on" day's pay." said
Jensen as he laid down the money mi
the clerk's desk.

ment of Officials
( lad in the vestments of a clergy
man of the Church of England, Wil
liam Morris, who claims to be an
Episcopalian minister and a general
evangelist at penitentiaries and prisons
of the United states, was arrested by
Patrolman McCarron and locked up in
ill- city Jail yesterday on a charge of
petty larceny.
Morris, who admitted he had fallen
grace and yielded to the tempta
tion to gel drunk and associate with
women of the underworld, emphatical
ly declared he is a regularly ordained
minister and that illness caused him
to sick drink as a remedy for his ner
vousness. He denied that the money
he received from various business men
in Los Angeles was used for any other
purpose than to help the poor and
needy.
The specific chart,'.• against Morris is
stealing $20 From Frederick Peatfleld, a
,1, ,] r. while the latter was
asleep in his room at the Hotel W;>t3r
ville several days ago.
Peatfleld, who swore to the com
plaint against the self-styled clergy
man, staled lie met the man at the
I [otel w atervllle a short time ago,

him into my room to have a drink.

that he was unable to go to his own

night, and the following evening the
same thing occurred. This time .Mor
ris had woman with him. After the,
woman left the apartment Morris
again became intoxicated and stayed
with mo. When awoke In the morn
ing I found my money was missing. I
accused Morris of the. theft. He made
son scuse and left the room. The
next time 1 saw him ho was in cus
tody."
Jekyll.Hyde Characteristics
The detectlvei who Investigated the
case .say Morris displayed the famous
characteristics of Dr. Jckyll and Mr.
Hyde During the daytime, tin? police
found, .Morris w»ra his ministerial
garb and sought subscriptions tor his
fund for the poor and downtrodden.
As soon a« the street lights began to
burn he cast off his black frock,
donned a suit of a more cheerful color
and frequented pool hails and saloons
and clinked beer mugs with laborers
and hoboes ill the places in Main

Influence of liquor, so ihe polli c
.Morris sought the sodOt) of the wom

in their debauches.
Shortly before being locked ui> yea-
terdajr afternoon Morris asked to be
allowed to talk with Peattield, and
following his conversation admitted
tli" theft fmm his former friend and
pave an order on the property clerk
for $2, which, Morris said, was to I" 1
credited to him on the amount he had
stolen.
The detectives say Morris is the mnn
who has bopn visiting massage par
lors and endeavoring to induce the
women attendants to have Improper
relations with him. A number of these
complaints have been made to the po
lice but they were unable to find the
man complained of.
Morris is said to hnve obtained an
average of $fiO a month as a result of
his soliciting money from persons In
i,.is Angeles and adjoining towns.
when searched he had a number of
cards on his person to the effect that
he was a genera] evangelist and
