JL According to recent advices Russia's second fleet was being got ready in the Baltic dockyards in anticipation of orders being received for service in theo
East. The most formidable part of the fleet is the quintet of 13,000 ton battleships, comprising the Borodino, Imperator Alexander III, Orel, Kniaz, Suvaroff
0 and Slava. T he description of one the Borodino-yvill serve generally for all. She is 37 feet long overall, has a beam 0176 feet, and is protected by a 9-in. V

,A whether it would effect its purpose or whether it would increase the effect of the explosion of a torpedo is a moot point. Above the water line belt only the p
V turrets, hoists and casemates are protected by armour, the two big turrets with 11-in. plating, the secondary turrets with 6-in.. and the casemates for the 12- q

E LOOKED
Unknown Backers of a Local Enterprise
Portuguese and Natives Investing in a
Concern of Doubtful Standing.
By the next mail to San Francisco
enquiries will go forward from several
banks and business concerns regarding
the Equitable Underwriting and Trust
Company, (inc.,) which a new local
qompany advertises as guarantor of
its business. The local company, "The
Co-Operative Home Purchasing Soci
ety," P. E. R. Straueh, Manager, has
been doing an extensive trade with
Portuguese and natives during the past
couple of months. These people have
paid into it a considerable amount of
money for the purpose of ultimately
securing loans with which to build
homes. As some of these natives un
der the plan of the society, may not
secure the loans promised them for
several years and some considerable
amounts of their money will be in the
custody of the "Society" during the in
tervening time they have naturally
looked for the. guarantor that their
money will be safe in such hands. The
"Society" turns out to be a co-partnership
consisting of but three partners.
The trust company, which is backing
the Straueh company, is either not
very well known, a new corporation,
or a corporation which is hiding its
light under a basket. No local bank
or commercial house among a number
seen yesterday could give the Adver
tiser any information concerning it
and, although the concern advertises
as "The Eciuitable Underwriting and
i Trust Company of San Francisco, Cal.,
Incorporated," no such name as that
appears in the 1903 San Frnncisco di
rectory. The corporation hovever may
have been organized since tne 1903 di
rectory was prepared.
The "Co-Operative Home Purchas
ing Society, a co-parnership, of Hono
lulu, Territory of Hawaii," fhas offices
at 74 south King street. in its
j pamphlets it states: "This Society has
: been organized in Honolulu, t. h., for
the purpose of securing a Home for
every family in the Territory of Ha
waii, and it is to be known as the Co
operative Home Purchasing Society."
In the opening part of its pamphlet
the concern states:
"OUR CO-OPERATIVE PLAN.
"The contract of the Co-Operative
Home Purchasing Society of Honolu
lu, T. H., presents an ideal plan to
people interested in securing homes
and paying off mortgages, whereby
everybody interested can secure an
unincumbered home in a short period
of time. Practical Co-operation has
JAPAN NOT TO BE HAVEN
FOR HAWAIIAN FUGITIVES
Governor Carter Discusses Extradition With Sec
retary Hay War Secretary Promises to As
sist in Returning Armory Lot to Hawaii.
Negotiations are under way at the State Department, Wash
ington, for the establishment of an extradition treaty between the
United States and Japan, as the direct outcome of suggestions
made by Governor Carter and Secretary Atkinson to Secretary
Hay. The Acting Governor received a letter yesterday from Gov
ernor Carter in which it was stated that he had had a conference
with the Secretary of State and had been informed that the matter
vvas under way.
After Adachi and a voting Hawaiian cleared out from Hawaii
for Japan, the local officials called the attention ot the parent gov
ernment at Washington to the wisdom of having an extradition

and easily slip away for Japan where they would be safe from
arrest.
Governor Carter also discussed the British claims (revolution
of '95), and passport matters with the Secretary of State.
In a conversation with Secretary of War Taft, concerning mili
tary matters in Hawaii, Governor Carter states that Taft promised
to do what he could to return the Armory lot to the Territorial
government.

been the means by which thousands
of families of the United States have
become the owners of their homes. The
plan is comparatively new In this coun
try, but has come to stay, and will
bring the same blessings to the work
ing classes on the Islands that it has
brought in the United States to home
seekers. It is fair and just to all.
"Contracts are written for $500.00
each and a person can take from one
to one hundred of them. The money
paid on each contract, before the loan
is made, is credited to the contract
holder, making the amount to be paid
back to the Society, after the loan is
made, that much less. When the con
tract holder secures his loan, he of
course gets possession of any house,
lot. or farm he chooses to buy and for
which the Society will pay spot cash.
"When a party applies for a loan, he
pays the membership fee of $4.00 for
each $500.00 he applies for, which is
credited to the Expense Fund; his con
tracts are then put on record in the
regular order and then the contract
holder pays $1.40 per month on eacb:
$300 contract until he gets his loan.
After he gets his loan he pays the so
ciety $4.40 per month on each $500 the
society has loaned until he has re
turned to the Society the full amount
they have advanced for him. He may
pay as much more than $4.40 a month
as he chooses, thus paying off his loan
in a much shorter time.
"When a contract holder is entitled
to a loan we pay spot cash, thus en
abling the members to secure a bar
gain and incurring no liabilities which
unforseen contingencies might make It
impossible to meet on the Installment
plan. Not a dollar is ever paid out of
the Home Fund except on approved
real e.state security.
"CO-OPERATION ILLUSTRATED.
"By co-operation time for securing a
home is shortened a great deal, as the
following illustration plainly shows:
Five laborers are enabled to save $4.00
a month each, after paying the -family
expenses, including $16.01) house rent in
each case. In talking over the plans,
they find that each is striving to get a
$1,000.00 home, and that each has saved .
up $200.00 to that end. One of them
suggests that they put their money to
gether and co-operate to the end that
each gets a home. They know that
by working alone it will be 133 months
before anyone can accomplish his pur
pose, including interest on his money,
so they put their money together, and
buy a home for No. 1, who then puts
into the common fund the $16.00 a
month he has been paying as rent In
addition to his savings. Then their
combined savings is $3G.OO a month, and
in 27 7-9 months they have enough to
buy a home for No. 2, then their com
bined savings are $32.00 a month, so
in 19 3-13 months they buy a home for
No. 3, then their combined savings are
JC8.00 a month, so in 14 12-17 months
they buy a home for No. 4; then their
combined savings are $84.00 a month,
