Los Angeles. July 10. Information
coming from an authoritative source
has just brought to light the fart,
supposed to be carefully guarded,
that E. H. Harrlman Is preparing to
recoup his loss of freight that has
been allotted the Santa Fe from Pa
cific Mall steamships In Kan Francisco.
Harrlman, with the co-operation of
H. K. Huntington, Is preparing to
build at San Pedro, in the southern
part of the state, quays, docks and
warehouses for the accommodation of
steamships to ply between San Pedro,
the Hawaiian islands, Japanese. Chi
nese and Philippine ports.
Not only will this line offset the ap
portionment of freight that Harrlman
has been compelled to concede to the
Santa Fe on every third steamship of
the Pacific Mall line that arrives In
Kan Francisco, but It will offset the
Oriental traffic gained by J. J. Hill
for the Great Northern and Northern
Pacific at Seattle and Tacoma. In ad
dition it will mean the upbuilding of
San Pedro as one of the Pacific coast
ports and add another factor In the
commercial progress of California.
The United States Is building a
large breakwater at the harbor of San
Pedro. In addition, the Pacific Elec
tric company, which is owned by H.
E. Huntington, has been since last
Sunday running cars between Los An
geles and East San Pedro wharf by
way of the Long Beach line to Do
mingues. At this wharf the boats of the Wil
mington Transportation company from.

The selection of a steamship line to
enter San Pedro will give routing to
freight over a railroad of the stock
of which Harrlman owns over 50 per
cent. Routing can be made ty way oi
Salt Lake, which is shorter by 60
miles to the coast than by way of Og.

ed will, with little doubt, be the Toyo

Within a short time Harrlman is to
make a visit to Japan. The object of
this trip will be to enter Into negotia
tions looking to the completion of ar-
rangements with the Japanese line to

Whenever the conversation turns on

there Is always some one who has a
story of the mysterious to tell, says
a contributor to Pearson's Weekly.
About 10 years ago, on a large open
tract of land In the north of London
(now fortunately covered with red
brick villas) a number of boys were
playing cricket. Suddenly there came
a loud humming noise like the com
bined drtnlng of thousands of bees,
and a great stone, larger than a man's
fist, whizzed across the center of the
patch and embedded Itself In a blank.
Almost immediately It was followed
by another and then a third.
Although they waited in hiding for
some time, there was no repetition of
the mysterious missiles. The question
then arose, where could they have
come from? The nearest house was
quite 400 yards away, and a machine
to have sent these large stones whirl

distance would be rather an extraor

But for the mysterious instinct that
caused the dog to enter the house and
attract this gentleman's attention, he
would probably have been killed by
the falling chandelier, for he had been
sitting directly beneath it.

NO GAM RUNG ON BOATS.
Steamboat Insicctom Will Stop Tills
Vicious Custom, it Is Said.
Seattle, July 10. Reports reached
here that Supervising Inspector John
Itermingham, of San Francisco, has
issued orders that gambling will no
longer be permitted on vessels plying
in California waters, and it is said
that the order will in a short time
be made to Include Portland and Pu-
get sound boats.
Gambling is being conducted open
ly on boats plying on Columbia river,
but Captain Whitney, the local steam
boat Inspector, stated Saturday that
during all his years of experience on
Puget sound boats he had never seen
a cent of money pass over the gambl
ing table, but that sometimes sailors
would engage in a friendly game for
cigars or drinks. Others familiar
with the beats, however, think other
wise, and say that gambling is run
ning on more than one boat that

NO ROOM FOR SCHOOL.
Promoters of Walla Wallu College

The plan for the erection of a nor

Walla Walla, an announcement of

Some Dayton kids had lots of fun

as they ostentatiously set it down In
the middle of the street In front of

drivers yelled at them to wait till their

lined at a safe distance by morbidly
expectant people who were figuring

In 1906 the road will be pushed on

pected that the revenues of the com
pany will Increase heavily. Prairie
City has long needed railroad connec

of that section are looking forward

great anticipations. This extension of

Value of Advertising.
It would take 5000 circulars to
reach as many people as the Wednes

up carefully and you will find that it
will cost you about $150 for what we
