The quarantine oi ficials found on board a case of sickness the nature of which they consider suspicious and the liner was ordered into quarantine. The suspicious case, a member of the crewj will be examined by daylight and upon the result of this investigation will depend th« . release or further detention of the Newport. She brought seven cabin and twenty-six steerage ;>ass. ngers. Among the former was Arthur H. IMitton. who left here as executive officer of the Colombian gunboat Bogota. Oliicr members of the little war vessel's crew are also on board the Newport. The Newport was boarded at San Jose de Guatemala by officers of the British cruiser Grafton, who went to Captain Saunders for .information re garding conditions along the '.coast. If re leased from quarantine the Newport will land her passengers early this morning at the Pa ciflc Mail dock Giving Sailors Away. The men that . deal in sailors are sighing for a return of the old days of blood mon?y and would even be satisfied if time would roll back to the day of moderately profitable commissions and there ' stop. The talk of huge, profits in this traffic in "mariners has attracted an unusual number of operators and th<> competition Jias crown keener from day to day. There are many pallors now in port, quite a number of ships going elsewhere to seek charter? and n fairly brisk .Ionium! for <-rew«. The men that supply these crews have divided into hostile camps and a cut-rate war is now l*ing waged to the almost- total wiping oat of profits. In former days, not counting the palmy periods of generous blool money, the boarding master received ?M) for raeh man supplied and out of tills he paid a commission of $20 to the runner who found the man. The boarding master under con ditions as they prevail to-day receives only $17 50 per man. Tliat- is gross: and out ot it comes Jaik'g board and the runner's com mlKFlon. *- • .

The annual reports showed the home to be In a prosperous condition. During the last year 103 boys and girls were taken care of. During the coming year those interested in the welfare of the home will make efforts to raise a building fund to eiect a comfortable nursery In the Rich mond district, where the home owns a large lot. The property is situated on Lake street, between Fourteenth and Fif teenth avenues, and by the end of this year the management hopes to have a fine new building erected, as the one they now occupy must be vacated during this year. II. E. Law has already donated $3000 to the building fund, and Henry Cowell has also given a donation of $1000 toward the fund. It was decided at yes terday's meeting to make an earnest ap peal to the public to subscribe toward the building fund! The San Francisco Nur sery for Homeless Children is one of tho most worthy charities in the city, and the appeal will no doubt result In the raising of a big building fund. nila, via Nagasaki 21 days 13. hours. | Stmr Albion River, Bash, 12 hours from Al bion.

Protection Is Sought for Vari ous Products of the State. RATE EXPERTS OFF FOR EAST Six more counties are affiliated with the board than there were ocs year ogo. All counties now co-operating wtth the board are showing greater Interest than heretofore. Following the recent cit rus fair, and within two weeks of its close, the Incentive being the showing made of citrus fruits at the fair, a corporation was formed In Kern County to engage on a large scale in raising oranges and lemons. Ground has been selected and the devel opment of water for the tract has begun. The delegates appointed to go to Sac ramento next Monday are- B. N. Rowley, T. C. Frledlander. J. A. Filcher. Craisle Sharp and Rufus P. Jennings. Manager Filcher submitted a report of the doings of the board. During the year 1902 the board sent out 3745 letter* in re sponse to inquiries, 200.000 copies of liter ature by mall and about 200,000 copies to attendants at conventions and persons who visited the free exhibit of the board in the Ferry building. The persons visit ing the board rooms In the year 1302 num bered 120.000. The State Board of Trade roted yester day to Instruct the secretary to request the California delegation In Congress to work against any reciprocity measure tending to Injure any of the industries of California. Delegates were elected to represent the board at the meeting of the Sacramento Valley Developmnt Association, the San Jcaquin Valley Commercial Association and the coast counties to be held at Sac ramento next Monday, for the purpose of dJscusslnff the subject of protection to the forests of California and other measures of general Interest to the State. A vote was adopted to publish the pamphlet written by Professor Wlckson of the Uni versity . of California concerning the adaptability of Northern and Central Cal ifornia for the growing of citrus fruits. The original steps were taken by the State Board of Trade some- years ago to have the Calimyrna fig produced In this State by the importation of the blastopha ga, or flg wasp. Since then, with the co-op-' eratlon of the Department of Agriculture, the Calimyrna fig has been firmly estab lished as an article of commerce. Yes terday the board appointed K, W. Masltn. J. A. Filcher and B. N. Rowley a commit tee to prepare an authenticated report of the agency of fhe board in this matter. These are the members of the committee that originally exploited the Idea, of the blastophaga In a communication address ed to Secretary Wilson of the Department of Agriculture. Business Men of Coast Have New Problems to Consider. In this wide range of possibilities there Is seen 'to be ample ground for discus sion. The men who will be at the con ference will be among the keenest In tho matter of freight tariffs in the United. States. On one side Is the Middlo West desirous of getting the Jobbing trade of the Pacific Coast. On the other side ars the business houses of the Pacific Coast. Much has been settled In favor of this coast by the decision of the Interstate Commerce Commission. The remaining questions have yet to be determined. If there is no agreement at Chicago tho Interstate Commerce Commiss»«on will sit at St. Louis next>«cnth to coifclder what Is then undetermined. • "While the Interstate Commerce Commis sion established certain principles, much was left in question. Here it is that di plomacy and expert knowledge will come into play on both sides to the controversy. The commission set forth that while the tariff that fixes the differentials between carloads and less thanVarlomla from th*» Middle West to the Pacific Coast cannot be condemned as a whole, many of the details arc in violation of law. The com modity- tariff was censured by the com mission because, so tHe commission found, it unlawfully specifies a number of va ried commodity rates, especially for th« hardware schedule. In the adjustment of carload and less than carload rates, so found the commission, while the differ ential is not. prlma facie, excessive. It does not follow that every differential un der- the tariff may equal those now ex isting. The differentials between the car load and the- less than carload rates w*«r»» found by the commission to bf? too great in many instances, and it was also found that the varied commodity rates in the hardware schedule, and perhaps in some others, should be readjusted and perhaps greater latitude should be given In the shipment of practically the same articles shipped in mixed carloads, while the pres ent record before Ihe commission fur nished no facts from which the commis sion could Intelligently determine what ought to be done In specific instances. Representatives from the commercial community of San Francisco to tho con fere'neo to take place at Chicago relative to the preparation of a new freight tariff for the transcontinental railways will leave this city for the East to-morrow night. They are W. R. Wheeler. Harry D. Loveland. Wakefield Baker. A. C. Ru lofson and E. S. PHlsbury. the last named being attorney for the commercial Inter ests Involved. This conference is certain to be attended with important results. The Interstate Commerce Commission having intimated that an agreement be tween the parties in interest would ob viate the necessity of additional hearing of the controversy, an effort will be mada to reach an understanding, and represen tatives will be present from all the trans continental lines, and also from the, Busi. ness Men's league of St. Louis, the last named organization being the one that instituted the proceedings that led to zfim long hearing before the Interstate Com merce Commission, involving great com mercial and transportation issues. .
