HOT SPRINGS, May 25.— The pool
rooms were unmercifully fleeced to-day
by a clever wire tapping, easily exe
cuted on account of the recent stoppage
of the Western Union service. Four
races were wrongfully reported and
settled for, and as a result the local
poolrooms lost thousands of dollars.
In the first race at St. Louis they
paid on Sylvan Belle to win. which
ran third. In the third race settlement
was made on JIngler to win, which was
not In the money. P. J. Somers. in the
first race at Chicago, was wired a win
ner, when "Watermelon *von, and in the
third race Aunt Katherine was given
as the winner when La Londe came in

and good weather aided in making the
racing to-day the best of the season
at Kenilworth Park. The feature of
the card was the Petaluma stakes.
Mrs. Coffey's colt Laocoon won by a
head, with Forest King and Colonel
Van driving hard a length apart. The
time was the fastest made for the

the card was hotly contested, except
the first, which Tom Kingsley won
handily. Sir Preston took his second
stake, leading the favorite, My Sur
prise, out a length. Rafour's Chicka
dee, which has been made a favorite
throughout the meet, took her first
race to-day. The summary:

It is feared that disaster has befallen on*
of a number of sailing vessels which left New
Tork or Philadelphia about a month ago, load
ed with case coal oil and bound for an oriental
port. The British steamship Florida, which
arrived at New Tork yesterday from Cal
cutta, reports that May 5. about 100 miles east
of the Nantucket light, she passed a lot of
wreckage, among which were, many cases of
coal oil. A rait and small boat, the latter
upwldedown. were seen among the flotsam. The
day before meeting the wreckage the Florida
experienced a very severe gale. As a result
of this report every Hailing vessel loaded with
coal oil that could have been in the vicinity
of this wreckage was posted for reinsurance.
The wreckage may have come from any of the
following vessels: Brlttsh ship Juteopolls. out
SI days from New Tork for Penang: German
ship Neck, out 21 days from New) Tork for
Yokohama: British bark Wynford. out 28 days
from New Tork for Shanghai: British ship
Queen Elizabeth, out 87 days from New Tork
for Hongkong; French nhtp La Rochecoucauld.
out 34 days from New Tork for Shanghai:
British chip Largo Law. out 31 days from
Philadelphia for Fremantle and the German
ship Willy Rlckmers. out 26 days from Phil
adelphia, for Nagasaki. They are all quoted
at 6 per cent, and the reinsurance speculator
who can Dick the lost vessel will realize big
returns on bis Investment.

Whenever an advertisement is de
clared, to be beyond the pale of Ameri
can law the Paper Publishing Associa
tion will be notified and this associa
tion in turn will notify the papers con
taining the/objectionable matter. Pa
pers not reported in the publishers' as
sociation will be notified by the de
partment directly. Whenever a paper
persists in publishing such advertise
ments after notification, it will bo de
nied the use of the mails. This plan of
procedure was made and announced
at the Postofflce Department to-day.
The Postmaster General has been in
correspondence for a long time with
the publishers' association and with
medical societies and others on this
subject and they have promised thor
ough co-operation.
Mr. Robb, former assistant attorney
general for the 'Postofflce Department,
when the postal scandals were on, went
into the question of patent medicine
advertisements and his work in issu
ing fraud orders has been continued by
Judge Goodwin, his successor, who al
so has taken up the question of other
It %vas announced that there was to
be no general crusade against objec
tionable advertisements in newspapers,
but that each case would be taken up
individually by law officers of the de
partment and whenever a violation of
the law was shown, the newspapers
containing such advertisements would
be prohibited the use of the mails. The
law department of the postofflce will
itself pass on the character of the ad
vertisements and its decision will be
considered final.
WASHINGTON, May 25.— Officials of
the Postoffice Department have decided
to establish a censorship over news
paper advertisements and, with the
avowed intention of improving their
tone, will go into this question with
some thoroughness.

The movements of the Stewart Fruit
Company, recently organized with a
capital of $100,000, are being watched
with considerable interest by Northern
California fruitmen, for It is generally
understood that the new concern is
part of the Santa Fe Company's
project to compete with the Southern
Pacific Company in securing a big
share of the deciduous fruit shipment
from the Sacramento Valley.
The Santa Fe officials have denied
that their road is backing the'com
pany, but the denial has not satisfied
the public curiosity, especially in view
of the fact that the president of the
Stewart Fruit Company, "W. H. Stew
art, was until recently the Southern
California representative of the Cali
fornia fruit agency, and Its vice pres
ident, R. E. Lyons, was connected with
the distributors' combine, both of
which organizations are closely allied
with the Southern Pacific Company.
Yesterday the distributors' associa
tion, of which Alden Anderson is the
head, held a meeting at the Palace Ho
tel and invited J. S. Leeds, manager of
the Santa Fe's refrigerating car serv
ice, who is completing the plans of that
company for its Northern California
invasion, to be present. Although the
members of the association declined to
give out any details • regarding Just
what took place at the meeting, it was
learned that they closely questioned
Leeds about the new fruit company,
and particularly regarding the reports
that it has the financial backing of the
railroad company.
Leeds, it is said, denied that the
fruit company was being financially
assisted by the Santa Fe, but one
thing he did not deny, and that was
that the company was inspired by the
Santa Fe. According to the best re
ports the Stewart Fruit Company has
extensive plans for establishing agen
cies throughout the Sacramento River
district and will contract to handle all
the fruit it can get over the Santa Fe
line into Chicago. In short, the cre
ation of the company is looked upon
as the fulfillment of the threat recent
ly made by' the Santa Fe that within
a month it would have representation
in ever^ shipping point north of San

pany is in this city conferring with

Another reception was held in the
divinity school this afternoon with
evening prayer conducted by the Bish
op and newly-made deacons. The new^
deacons have been assigned to duty as'
follows: C. M. Marrick, assistant to
the rector of St. Luke's Church, San
Francisco; "W. It. Hodgkin, assistant to
Rev. E. L. Parsons. St. Mark's Church.

SAN MATEO. May 25.— The Church
of St. Mathew was crowded beyond its
seating capacity by a fashionable audi
ence this morning to witness the ordi
nation exercises of the divinity school.
Three students were ordained into the
order of deacons— C. M. Marrick, W.
R. Hodgkin and F. U. Bugbee. The
services were conducted by Right Rev.
William Ford Nichols, Bishop of Cali
fornia, assisted by Dean Trew of Los
Angeles, who preached the ordination
Besides the Rev. "W. H. Powell of the
Santa Clara Divinity school and the
local rector. Rev. N. B. W. Gallway,
there were also several visiting clergy
men and a large number of the laity
from other parishes. A special car* was
required to accommodate the visitors
from San Francisco. The procession of
priests, deacons and students, headed
by the choir, from the parish house to
the church, was a most impressive and
interesting spectacle, which became
more dramatic as it proceeded down
the aisle singing the "Processional" to
the accompaniment of the . mighty
music from the grand organ.
Immediately following the solemn
and impressive ceremonies of ordina
tion a "reception was held in the parish
house at which all visitors and parish
ioners were Invited to partake of re
