TOER FR0XT.I Skippers '-Will Soon Lose the Use of Navy Wharf. IT IS TO BE PAVED AND FENCED. HOW TJNCLE BAM SPENDS GOOD XONEY ON HIS TRANSPORTS. The Fannie Adele off for Kauai- Sailor Almost Killed Albert to Go on Dry Dock The Cur- tis Sails. The ships Iroquois and Republic, now at the Richards street wharf, will be the last vessels to discharge there for some time after they finish. It is the Intention of the navy officials to have the contractors begin work of laying the bitumen topping immediately the two big ships are through. This will necpssarily close the wharf as far as using It to discharge cargo goes, and the probabilities are that 't will be held as a naval dock from the time the work Is done. Pians and specifications for a fence to surround the entire naval reservation were forwarded by the China, and as soon as they are approved bids will be called for doing the work. The contractor started yesterday to place the moorin,. piles and experienced great difficulty in getting them through the hard coral. The end of the wharf damaged some .time ago by a transport has been repaired and a dolphin head has been placed on the corner to better protect it in future. FANNIE ADELE SAILS. The little schooner Fannie Adele le."-on her maiden trip as a coaster yeste: day, in command of Captain Piltz. She sailed for Eleele, Kauai, with a carcj of 370 tons of coal for the McBryde plantation. Since arriving here from San Diego, where she was purchased by John Ena for the Inter Island Company, she has been overhauled and fitted for the trade that she is now In. She carries her own hoisting power and will be used principally in transporting coal and heavy machinery from hero to the other islands. She was towed to sea by the Niihau. NEARLY KILLED. C. "W. Steele, a sailor on the British ship Republic, was nearly killed yesterday by having a bucket of coal dumped on him while working in the hold of the ship, The contents of the discharging bucket fell upon him throuch tho hatch bv some accident to the trip line. The man was taken to the Queen s hospital in an insensible condition by the patrol wagon. An examination flowed that no bones were broken, out it is feared that In may be internally injured. His whole body was badlyr"cut and oruised by the falling coal and it is a wonder that he escaped instant death. TRANSPORT SERVICE. Every available ship has been chartered by the transportation bureau of tht quartermaster general's department, tho time of Colonel Bird at Washington having been engrossed with this business. Several fine steamships that were about to be secured by the government went into the hands of other countries as a result of their activity in sending troops to China. Two vessels in particular which this government was negotiating for were secured by Russia. The total tonnage in Pacific transports is 130.S39. Of this 77.919 tons represents chartered vessels, of which tons has been added since the outbreak in China. There are nineteen Chartered vessels in service on the Pacific coast, eight of which have been chartered since July 11th. The average daily cost to the government is JIO.S'H), or $327,000 per month, an average ' over $550 per day for each transport. In addition the transport service has a fleet of fourteen vessels owned by the United States, representing a tonnage of 52,920. Only two chartered vesse's are used to transport troops, all the others being used for freight and ani mals. Chartered vessels are receiving compensation under a new charter. which provides for a considerable reduction over former prices, and nearly all the newly chartered vessels conform to the new standard of rates. Following is a statement showing chartered ship the rate of charter, the lesser tonnage and cost of charter per day, with the former price, showing the reduction un der the new charter: Athenian, May 14th. the Canadian Pacific, tonnage 35S2, $600 per day, for mer price ?S00: Conemaugh.

WASHINGTON, July 30. Reports of I i.ited States shipping commissioners for the year ended June 30, 1900, rendered to the Bureau of Navigation show 142,632 shipments, discharges and reshipments of seamen on American vessels at those offices, compared with 122.468 for the previous fiscal year. Shipments, discharges and re-shipments at New York were 48,469. compared with 35,627 for the previous year. ' Shipments and reshipments aggregate 90,325, nationality into Americans, 32,333; British, 1S.4S0; Scandinavians, 16,735; Germans, 8,449; Italians, 1.1S6; French, 635; other nationalities, 12,506.

Shipments and reshipments on steam vessels numbered 47,409 and on sail vessels 42,916. TORPEDO BOATS. VICTORIA, B. C, Aug. 9. The naval and military force at Esquimalt and the forts which surround Victoria has been engaged in an interesting series of maneuvers during the present r eek. On Wednesday night these were brought to a conclusion by three, torpedo boats and the torpedo boat destroyer Virago making an attempt to enter Esquimalt harbor, where the largest ships of the fleet are at anchor, without being detected by the sentinel at the forts which guard Victoria and Esquimalt and extend toward Race Rocks. All lights on the little vessel were extinguished and they made a dash for the harbor entrance from the straits. The sentinels did not know of their coming, but the boats were still some way off when the searchlights from the forts and navy yard were thrown on them, several attempts being made To get into the harbor by different routes, but oach failed. The officers are much pleased with the result, expressing the opinion that it would be impossible for an invading fleet to get past the forts and submarine mines which guard Britain's base en the North Pacific. NOTES. The tern Reporter went to the new railroad wharf yesterday. The schooner William "Bowden sails for the Sound In ballast today. The ship J. B. Brown took the vacated at the railroad wharf by the Curtis. The bark Sea King has finished discharging and will haul into naval row today. Her place at the coal wharf will be taken by the Dechmont. H M. Sewall has presented the flag-T-le formerly used at the American legation to Captain Merry. It has been erected near the commandant's office and will be used -when returning flag salutes with foreign men-of-war. The bark Albert Is alongside the Aloha at the Oceanic wharf waiting for a chance to go on the marine railway to repair, caulk and paint. While she Is waiting her fore topmast has been lowered and will be replaced with i new one. The ship George Curtis went to sea yesterday. She took a load of suzar for San Francisco. At the time she parted company with the tug then4 was a good breeze blowing and the Curtis made tracks and was soon but a small speck on the horizon. The cost of maintaining a liner Is enormous. It being estimated, for example, that food and sup plies for the Deutschland. one of the latest Atlantic greyhounds, will cost $750,000 a year, while the salary list for each round trip is about"10,000. The little steamer Gpolu came in from Hawaii ports yesterday with 142 bags of charcoal and ninety sacks of awa. She reports the schooner John G. North at Honolpu, after a voyage of fifteen days from San Francisco. When the Upolu left Mahukona the brig Consuelo was just making port from San Francisco. The Callforaia Coastruction Cc's dredger, which Is oa the, marine railway, was worked as long as possible without beimg repaired, bat at last it was fouad to slakta. so ifwaat oa the ways. An examination of its bot tom shoved the ravages of tee teredo in these waters and a month losger in the water would oroteblr have been the end of the barge part of the chine. ARRIVALS. Wednesday.

Gurioosly enough, certain parts of the United States are less likely than others to suffer from a teatamine on account of the war in China. In the east. Philadelphia, for example, a rise of 2 cents per pound is already noted, but it is thought that the west will scarcely be affected. The tea nsod here comes largely from Japan, while Indian and Ceylon teas are gaining in favor and importations are heavier each year. 'Ihe southern people, mtxo cling to tne Hysons and gunpowder teas of their great-grandfathers, will not be atfected unless the war spreads to the extreme southern end of China. Philadelphia, with its taste for Formosa and Foochow Oolong, and Boston, which uses For mosa almost entirely, will be more likely to suffer. Pittsburg will feel any spread of the war first. Her Eng lish and bcotcn population like the Congou, or English breakfast tea, a tasfkcarried from the old country, 'uland thought she could finish tnSButh African war in a few months," saidra prominent importer recently. The powers will find the Yellow Terror just as difficult a proposition. Four years is an extreme, and one year a conservative guess at the length of the war. Since we get 31,000,000 of the 84,-000,000 pounds of tea we import to this country from China, prices may go kiting, unless Japan and Southern Asia can be drawn upon to supply the deficiency."
