SEATTLE. Wash.. March 7. A Times special from Washington quoted Col. Bird of the Transportation Bureau of the War Department as follows: "We are asking for bids for 7000 tons of freight now stored at San Francisco. If British shipowners offer the cheap est rate they will get the contract for transporting this freight to Manila. If they bid the same as American owners, the American ships will be given the preference." KIPLING CONVALESCING. NEW YORK, March 7. Mr. Double day tonight reported both Rudyard Kipling and his little daughter Elsie to be slowly but surely convalescing. Mr. Kipling has not yet been informed of the death of his other child and he will not be told about it until he is practically well. She was his favorite and the physicians dread the possibil ity of a relapse should he learn of her death in any manner. Some of the more important cablegrams and mes sages are daiily read to Mr. Kipling, and occasionally he is allowed to read i-em himself. Every such message is carefully censored, however, to prevent the father from reading even an allu sion to his loss. Great quantities of flowers continue to be sent to the Gre noble Hotel by friends of the Kip.ing. THE LATEST. L. B. Kerr's latest importation of goods, just received per S. S. Austra lia, and direct from the leading man ufacturers of Europe, comprise 120 cases of dry goods, dres3 goods, lac., embroideries and artistic millinery. All to be sold at prices that will astonish you. A PEACE POLICY!- . IlALLUNTYMl. II. P. UAKIN. Japan Now for Reduction of the Army and Navy.
