SAX FR.AXCiSCO, Sede'iiber 21.-
A sharp fie ht for the export tra 1 of
San Franciseo to European points has
broken out between the Pacific .Mail
and American-Hawaiian steamship com-
n.'iiiies'. New rate sheets sent out nv
8 the Pacific Mail reveal a substantial
I cut below the schedule of the American-
Hawaiian. For the last two years the
American-Hawaiian has been enjoying
the bulk of the business. The Pacific,
Mail's slash in rates has brought it
the lion's share of the business and its
boats are sailing with h'-avy cargoes for
European points

company is regarded as part of its plan

eflect that the boy scout movement had
spread to Russia. The Russian organi
zation, while modeled on the lines of
the movement inaugurated by General
Baden-Powell, appears to differ in on?
important detail. The British boy
scouts are prepared with a view to
their becoming good and useful citi
zens, and not with a view to their being
specially trained as soldiers.
In Russia, however, the movement ap
pears to be connected with the army,
since the minister of war lends consid
erable support to the movement as be
ing of great assistance as a necessary
corollary of short service with the col
ors. It is said that there are already
ten thousand boys enrolled in the Rus
