JAPANESE LINERS RECEIVE FAVORS Mail Dispatched in Orient in Half the Time Required by Pacific Mail Postal Agent Informs De partment of Discrimina tion Shown Japanese trans-Pacific liners are fa vored ln Japan ln the transportation of mail, according to a letter to J. M. Darrah, postal agent, to Joseph Stewart, second assistant postmaster ! general. He reports the mail of Japanese liners from San Francisco is dispatched in half the time the mail from the Pacific Mail liners is. Darrah's letter follows: "I have the honor to again call your attention to the unnecessary delay in the transference of American mails ln Japan dispatched from the United States by other than Japanese mail steamers. From the appended table you will note that delays never occur with mails arriving from San Fran cisco or Seattle by steamers of the Japanese lines. Tt Invariably happens in cases where Japanese steamers are concerned that tbe mails are received In Shanghai in advance of the steamers which carried them across the Pacific: and, when the steamers omit the call at Shanghai, tbe mails are trans shipped and seldom occupy more than four days in transit from Yokohama to Shanghai. Mails dispatched from the United States by the Pacific Mail steamers are never transshipped unless the steamers omit the call at Shanghai, and, in cp =es where they are trans shipped, they are unnecessarily delayed in Japan and not infrequently occupy nine days In transit from Yokohama to Shanerhai. "This is a subject of great com plaint, and pnything that can be done to prevent the annoyance will be ap preciated by the patrons of the office."

ALLEGED PHYSICIAN IS ARRESTED FOR BRIBERY Effort to Secure Evidence Results in Purchnae of Brick From Police Officers Dr. George P. Fisher, with offices In the Lincoln building, has a more seri ous charge against him as a result of a plan concocted by himself. Fisher was arrested last week for practicing medicine without a license. The alleged physician, believing that if he secured three bottles of medicine, five bottles of pills and a book on health, which the state board of med ical examiners seized as evidence against him, he could be acquitted, made a bargain over the phone with A. J. McDonald, an agent of the board, and S. A. Earle, city detective. They agreed to turn over the evidence for $18.50. Yesterday afternoon they met the doctor in Union square and handed him a package. In return he gave the detective and examiner $18.50 and then found himself under arrest. The pack age contained a brick. Fisher was charged with bribery. MINE FIRM SUED TO RECORD SHARE OWNERS P. B. Lynch and W, H.
