Cotton Marke*
NEW YORK. May 4. — Hutton's wire says:
•Trsdictr on the local exchange today was |
quieter than for taany months past and there was
virtually no outside business to speak of. A
great many bullish crop reports are reaching tlie
\u25a0rrehanpe daily, but *>o far these reports have
fulled to stimulate any desire on the part of the
put'.ic to come In and take a hand. | A. Norden
& Co- issued e&newhat of a bullish circular on
acreage and conditions today, making allowance
for an Increase of only 2.3 per cent. They fur
ther say that the general outlook is virtu afly the
Fame as prevailed tn 1905-06. when the <rop was
only 10.726.000 bales, and in 1907, which was
11.-i2G.CKX> bales, and Is much poorer than lni«t
r<»ar. when the crop was only 10.5C3.000 bales
according to United States censes figures. A
marked improvement In the demand far spot cot
ton in the south has been noted since the open
ing of the week, and, if thi6 demand contiuues
and becomes general, higher prices will prob
etily be seen for futures in New York In the near
future. The rales of 13.000 bales of spots in
New York yesterday represent sales by the bull ;
pool, about *10,000 bales going abroad and the re
mainder to southern mills. The leading spot
merchant of the bull crowd is said to have told
people who asked him for firm offers during the
i*ft few days that he has no cotton for sale."

ALBATROSS IN PORT
AFTER LONG CRUISE
Fish Commission Vessel Spends
Two Years Dredging in
Philippine Waters
Visits Many Out of the Way
Corners, but Comes Home
Without a Scratch
HE United States
fish commission
steamer Albatross,
Captain C. M. Mc-
Uormick, arrived
•esterday from the
orient after an ab
sence of more than
:wo years. During
;his time the scien
tists aboard the Al
batross have been
Investigating the
fisheries of tlie
Philippines and the
results, although
not exciting, are
said to be of scien
tific and commer
cial interest.
According to the
officers of the Albatross the Philippine
waters teem with fish, but are not
likely to attract large operators. Fish
ing is an important local industry in
every island, but the fish will not stand
shipment to any distance on account
of the temperature of the 'water and
the general climatic conditions.
F. M. Chamberlain of the bureau of
fisheries jyas the head scientist on
1 board and he was assisted by scien
tists and students senf'out from time
to time from Washington and Manila.
The Albatross made its headquarters
at Manila and returned there at regu
lar intervals for the purpose of ship
ping the specimens to Washington.
; After leaving Manila the Albatross
spent about three months in the vicin
ity of the Celibes, Borneo, Formosa and
th<> Liukiu islands. The little steamer
poked its nose into many odd corners
bristling with coral reefs, of which the
ancient Spanish charts showed nothing.
The clearness of the water saved the
ship more than once from puncturing
its skin on a coral pillar and the whole
cruise was without mishap.
Many of the islands visited by the
Albatross are inhabited by head hunt
ers and other savages, but no trouble
was experienced anywhere, chiefly,
Captain McCormick says, because the
vessel's visits were brief.
. Most of the reef fishing was done by
dynamite. The deepest dredge haul
was made in th<» Sulu sea. where fish
were brought up from a depth of 2,500
fathoms. In some of the hauls were
found more than 200 varieties of fish.
The Albatross came home by way of
Yokohama and Honolulu and enjoyed
fine weather all the way across the Pa
cific. At Honolulu the steamer was
detained in quarantine on account of
two cases of suspected smallpox.
The Albatross left here October 16,
ISO 7, in command of Captain Marbury
Johnston. The enlisted men who were
on the ship were detached at Manila
and their places taken by Filipinos,
who served throughout the cruise and
gave good satisfaction. The little brown
men were put ashore at Manila and
their places taken by a crew of en
listed men from the Cavite navy yard.
Captain McCormick relieved Captain
Johnston more than a year ago at Ma
nila. The other officers are:
Lieutenant B. G. Barthalou, Chief
Boatswains F. R, Hazard and R. Ro
nange. Boatswain' H. T. Johnson, As
sistant Surgeon A. E. Lee, Assistant
Paymaster R. K. Van Mater and Ma
chinist Charles Crater.
The Albatross is now at Sausalito
but will go to Mare island for repairs
in a few weeks, and when again ready
for sea will make a cruise In Alaska
waters.
Bear Will Have Trial Cruise
The San Francisco and Portland
sttamship company's Bear the new
vessel built by the Harriman interests
ror th»» run between here and Port
land, will be given a final trial trip
today. The trip will be more of an
excursion than an official trial and a
number of guests have been invited.
The Bear will leave pier 44 at 10 a.
m. and will return about 4 p. m. A
visit will be paid to the Mare island
navy yard and luncheon will be served
on board. The Boar and its twin sis
ter. Beaver, were built at Newport
News specially for this service.
The Bear will leave here on its first
trip to Portland Saturday morning and
will carry a large number of passen
gers. The Bear burned coal on its
voyage from the Atlantic side, but
since arriving here has been converted
into an oil burner and will use liquid
fuel exclusively hereafter."
Explorer Sail* for Alaaka
The United States coast survey
steamer Explorer, which spent the win
ter in this vicinity and left here re
cently for Seattle, sailed yesterday from
the Puget sound port for Alaska, where
tne summer will be passed in surveying
the waters near the salmon canneries
As many ships are now engaged in the
salmon trade it is of great importance
that complete charts should be made
of these northern- waters. At the' end
of the summer the ' Explorer probably
will return here, as there is still much
surveying to be done along the lower
coast.
Changes of Officers \
W. D. Cameron, chief officer of the
army transport Sheridan, has been
granted three months' sick leave and
R. T. Bain, who was mate of the
Thomas, has been transferred to the
Sheridan as chief officer. It is said
that Barn's successor as mate of the
Thomas will be Captain Pierce, who
once commanded the Sheridan and later
served for a short time as dock super
intendent.
Mii.il line Their Own Boat*
Orders have been received from the
treasury department. Washington, D. C,
instructing the customs department and
the revenue officials that the boats of
their respective departments are not to
b«» at tho^eervice of the immigration
officials In the future, except where
special privilege is given. This order
was made on account of the immigra
tion department having its own boats,
including the Inspector, which was
recently built, and the treasury depart
ment desired separate expense accounts
from the two departments In relation
to operating their boats.

OILMEN GOING
TO BATTLE BILL
Delegation to Protest Against
Pickett Leaves
/ Tomorrow
A delegation composed of San Fran
cisco. Los Angeles and San Joaquin
vall«y oilmen will leave- here* tomorrow ,
for, Washington to make formal protest
against the Pickett bill now pending In
congress. In the party will be Captain
John Barneson, T. A. . O'Donnell. W.^W.
Orcutt, Ralph Arnold, Attorney A. L.
.Weil and- possibly 'others. 'Senator
Flint has arranged a hearing before
the senate committee for, next Wednes
day, and at that time the Calif ornians
will be given an opportunity to set
forth their objections to the bill.
The measure, as it passed the house,
strikes a blow at the oil industry of the
state that may nullify much of the
development already under way. From
telegraphic reports from Washington,
however, there is every reason to be
lieve that congress and President Taft
will accept the view' of the Califor
nians and eliminate tne objectionable
features.
Specific protest has been directed
against, that portion of the bill which
seeks to ratify the withdrawal order
of . last September, by which several
thousand acres of land already located
were placed in reserve. | It was pointed
out yesterday by Attorney Weil that
the legislation contemplated was retro
active and of a nature forbidden the
states under the federal constitution.
"We expect to be able to show the
senate committee," said Weil, "that this
would work 'an irreparable hardship on
a great many people in the oil business,
not to the advantage of the community,
but to the benefit of corporate inter
ests." v
