What wilt thou have, Salome? Salome The head of John (Lynch). Ax Drop. And Lynch's Head Is Bet the Editors and Tie wise men of Republican polities have concluded that everything concerning next year's campaign hangs on the result of the primaries in this city on the 13th of next month. If Spreckels, De Young, Ruef and Lees win control through their Primary League they will be in a position to control the convention of next year. That would mean aD anti-Gage delegation from San Francisco and the complete turning down of all the hangers-on and retainers of Herrin, Burr.s, Kelly and the Governor. But it will mean much more than that. It will throw all the flghu wide open. The machine men are now telling that if the Primary League gets control of things Spreckels is to have the Supervisors while De Young secures the legislative nominations. That would make the General a prominent competitor of Perkins for the Senator-ship, and the General still has a longing for the place. When he went up against Perkins before he lost on the first ballot, but there was a good deal of a fluke about the result and the General is willing to try again, even if be Isn't to have the railroad backing this time. So the success of the Primary League will menace both Gage and Perkins and the machine doesn't feel a bit easy over the outlook. That machine is working as it never worked before. Governor Gage keeps right on the spot to see that nothing is left undone to defeat his enemies and keep his friends in power. Once there Is an antl-Ga?e power established in San Francisco tbe opposition to he machine will become active all over tbe State. General Otis and Senator Bulla and tbe old Grant following in the south would contest every delegation with a fierce determination to defeat the Governor for re-election. Over in Alameda the Pardee-Dalton wing of the party would make a bold bid for control, and Congressman Metcalf would te menaced with the rest. Pardee might decide to get into the gubernatorial fight again and demand the fulfillment of the promises made to him three years gao. Of course, Tom Flint's friends would show increased activity when they saw that the struggle was to be such an open one. And there would be ructions from one end of the State to tha other. John Lynch's head as Internal Revenue Collector will very probably depend on that result or August i, nn. miouio spreckels and Bard's present derr.a place by menacing Le V rra"c,sco "Piemion. even ' I' , v. , '" De ' lifc wan's ,0 bp re-elected, and the machine couldn t make the race himself. Perkins bas put forward Assemblvman W. C. Rals-wculd not dart hold out against the demand ton to beat bi'm. So Davis may be relied on of tbe ne power. Bard is like Salome, to make the effort of his life to bring down dancing before Herod for tbe head of John opposition delegations from the Fourteenth the Baptist as he dances before Perkins for Senatorial district. tna Bead, oi Jonn Lynch. Once his editor rrln wr In m, hi ,.u " ' i v nnuom mu vmejw, i ftiiaawj &t , cmiiou jP mmk it) i X X is nothing in all the Wilt thou dance for on the Game Between the Machine. their powerful applause his steps would become winning and compelling. Poor Perkins would have to consent to the beheading, v But if Gage, Herrin, Burns and Kelly win out those primaries the machine will have shown its power. Policiclans all over the State will want to be with the winners and stay with tbe strong side. The opposition will be discouraged everywhere. There would be little chance for a successful revolt in Alameda county. The south would put less ginger into its struggles to be free from the old control, and the Gage-Perkins programme would go through without a hitch. Some of the regulars admit that Gage and Perkins are programmed together. Senator Frank Leavitt, of Oakland, one of the leaders of the old Burns forces, declares that Perkins will have a walk-over, and that all the programme is that way. Leavitts in a position to know the programme, as he is a most consistent programmer and takes orders without wincing. But some other Alameda county men are not at all so certain that they are going to be for Gage. Take State Senator Lukens, for instance. He is a hold-over Senator and Is for Perkins fast enough. But when asked where he stood for Governor he hemmed and hawed and boxed the political compass. He declared himself a warm personal friend of Tom Flint, but insisted that he felt kindly toward Governor Gage. Behind this, however, was the declaration: "Of course if Alameda county has a candidate I'll be for him." That shows that men like Lukens are watching the outcome of the battle in San Francisco. If the machine wins here they'll take the programme and let it go at that. But If a power hostile to the machine secures control in the metropolis they'll just keep themselves in an Independent position, ready to take advantage of any opportunity to push their own interests or the interests of their friends. Vp in Contra Costa county Senator Charles Belshaw Is sitting up nights to curse the hope that the machine will be defeated here. Though his vote baa been counted as safe for Perkins, be wants to square accounts with Gage and the machine. The machine spent railroad money to beat him with Jim Wilkins last year, and he had a close shave in a Republican district and a Republican year. Then Gage vetoed his bits right and left. So Belshaw may be put down to bring Contra Costa Into the conven tion in opposition to everything the machine wants. uuuiuoprecKi-isana in Calaveras. Amador and the other coun-f could re-enforce ties of the district represented by Senator and for Lynch s John F. Davis, there Is more possibility of I erkins with troubl". The n achine hates Davis. He was In Calavc-ns. Amador and theother coun I vehement in his opposition to Burns, Now U In tbe Thirty-fourth District Kern and lc t . ..- He's another Bard man who has no love for the machine. In front of his eyes 1b the example of Assemblyman Dale, who would not vote for Burns and was slaughtered when he came up for re-election. As Smith's district is heavily Democratic he probably can't get back to Sacramento as a Senator, but he may have influence enough to take an anti-Gage delegation to the State convention. And there is a good deal of an Inquiry as to what "Jack" Wright is going to do in Sacramento. He has been thrown out of the railroad for doing politics and he may take it into his head to have a hand in smashing a few railroad candidates. Still, he always has been very friendly with Gage, and ho may content himself with using his influence to have some of his friends programmed on the ticket. For instance, he might Insist that National Committeeman Van Fleet be given one of tbe Supreme Court nominations again, and failing in that he might use his admitted power in the capital city to break slates and disturb programmes. That Senator Bard will not be friendly to Gage is evidenced by the attitude of his supporters up and down the State. If those supporters had the San Francisco delegation as a nucleus to rally around they would come in very strong with their anti-machine votes, but without such a nucleus their opposition will lack vigor and concentration. Though Senator Bulla, one of Bard's closest advisers, has declared for Tom Flint, some of the other Bard men are not so outspoken. They want to see how the cat is going to Jump before they declare themselves. Their future action depends entirely on the result in San Francisco. It was rather supposed that Flint would get a lively support from the old Grant forces, but Milt Green knocked his hopes In that direction when the two met at the Palace and Flint asked how the Grant men would stand In the coming campaign. Green said. "You can't expect people will be for you, Flint, because you're never for anybody. While you kept your Assemblyman, Dr. Cargill, voting for Giant in the deadlock, you yourself kept voting In a way to give half a vote for Burns. So the Grant people have no use for you and the Burns people despise you." That was rather cold comfort, but Flint Is out and around doing Native Son politics constantly, and as he was a strong Bard man he Is In a position to call for the suport of Spreckels and De Young should the editors and their Primary League gain contro.l of affairs In San Francisco. So everything comes back to the big fight of August 13th, with the entire Republican party of the State watching developments and awaiting results. That John C. Lynch recognizes the importance of that flgbt In his struggle with Bard and Kelly for the Internal Revenue Collector's office Is shown by his activity. He Is very largely the brains of the machine. As an organizer he has few equals, and when It comes to a struggle like the present one he Is tireless and resourceful. When he was Speaker and working for De Young he came within an ace of deadlocking the Legislature against Perkins, and in that campaign Perkins saw the kind of man be was. forgave him and put him in the office he now holds. It seems singular to see De Young now trying to get him out of that office. Perkins hardly will let him be sacrificed unless the editors can re-enforce Bard with the power of San Francisco. If the machine gets San Francisco. Perkins would not dare to let Lynch be beheaded. Anl so It Is that everything !b concentrated here, with the whole, scheme of State politics a year hence hinging on a municipal convention primary. ECZEMA; NO CURE NO PAY.

Fltzmorrls is expected to break the record from St. Paul by nearly an hour. The schedule' time of the train is "o'clock; but it Is expected to rtach Chicago by 6 o'clock this morning. At the highest pressure ever maintained upon a mail train on the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad Fitzmorris Is making hla final spurt In his record-bfeak-ing trip around tbe world. Under orders of President A. J. Earling of the Milwaukee road the fast mail train fairly flew to get the Intrepid Chicago boy to bis goal. "Push that train to the limit," was the message sent to St. Paul. "I'll do it," said Engineer Casey, as be climber on board his locomotive; and he Is. Charles Cecil Fitzmorris will arrive at Chicago Saturday morning, completing the circuit of the world In sixty days and tlf-tsen hours tbe fastest time ever made. He will be met at the depot by the fastest automobile In the city and whirled to the office of "Hearst's" Chicago American," where his race officially ends. Acting Mayor Blocld, Corporation Counsel Walker and Chief of Police O'Neill will have the streets Fitzmorris is to traverse cleared of all vehicles and pedestrians, and tbe minute the lad steps from the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul train at the Union station he will dash to the automobile and be rushed at top Bpeed to the office of "Hearst's Chicago American," where his great race will be declared ended. Preceding the automobile will be a platoon of mounted police riding at a mad gallop with drawn sabers. Following will come a mounted guard of, honor from the Buffalo Bill show, This'guard will consist of an American cowboy, a Mexican rough rider, an Arab, A Cossack, a Boer soldier, a member of the Strathcona Horse, an Indian, a German cavalryman, an American cavalryman and an American artlllerymn. They will ride at top speed in order to keep up with the horseless carriage. When Fitznjorris reaches the "American" office he will be greatly surprised to see the entire front of the big white building draped with flags of all nations, the stars and stripes predominating. At 8 o clock the Chicago lad will be the center of attraction In a monster parade which will move from the "American" office to tho City Hall. There Acting Mayor Blockl will grasp Fitzmorris by tbe hand and give him greeting. Mr. Blocki will speak of the wonderful reeord-breaking tr'p, of its marvelous educational features and of W. R. Hearst, the man who made it possible for three high school students from as many cities to encircle the globe. Colonel George Fabian, as the personal representative of Governor Richard Yates, will then receive Fitzmorris In the name of the Chief Executive of Illinois. Fitzmorris will reply to the warm words of welcome, and after being presented to city officials and prominent citizens will be driven in parade over the downtown streets and to bis home in Emerald avenue. In the evening a reception will be given the lad at the Auditorium Hotel. He and his family will be the guests of the "American," and he will speak from the balcony In front of the hotel and tell of the adventures of his trip to all who come to hear. Samuel J. Williams, who accompanied him around the world, will also speak. The sensational dash across Berlin will be described, when the lesult of the race depended upon a second of time, and the second was saved and the race won. The trip down the Amur, when IFtzmorrls and his companion traveled for days In an open boat rowed by natives, will be more Interesting and exciting tha a novel. The strange sights of which Fitzmorris will tell and the storFes of narrow escapes from missing connections and the exciting incidents which were thick on his journey cannot be surpassed In truth or fiction. That reception will not be the end of Fitzmorris' homecoming. Sunday he will rest at home, If his eger schoolmates, with their thirst for stories of his trip, will let him rest. Monday evening he will again be the guest of the "American," this time at McVicker's Theatre. HUNT CLUB TO HOLD ANOTHER PAPER CHASE.

TACOMA, July 19. A dispatch was received from Bremerton to-day stating that about fOO machinists had been laid off at the Government drydock. It was further said that there was no likelihood of the men being taken back until the strike is over. A member of the Metal Trades Association Intimated that tbe Government would only do work that was absolutely necessary unlll after the settlement of the strike. "The Oregon was to have been put In the drydock at once for extensive repairs," "said the manufacturer, "but the Government has changed Its plans and that vessel will not go Into drydock now until after the strike. Is over. I am further Informed that the Government is contemplating a change in wages, so that the price paid the men at tbe naval station will ccmpare with the wages paid In the local shops. I am not at liberty to sy whore my Information comes from, but I look upon it as reliable." HOPKINS INSTITUTE OF ART Will be opened on tbe evening of Satnrday, July jjMttiy ana so Xaartaj, Julf 2U.

ON BOARD THE EMPRESS OF INDIA, June 14. I have Just time to write of a few incidents of the race around the world which occurred during the brief stops Wil liam Clark Crittenden and I made in'Japan. We thought It advisable to draw some money on our letters of credit, so as to be prepared for emergencies. We asked for 150 each. After a very long delay the clerk brought us 1,409 yen and some' sen each. The yen, or Japanese dollar, is worth almost exactly an American half-dollar or British "two shillings and a 'apenny," as the young man expressed It. I told him we did not want Japanese money, as we were traveling around the world and Were not going to remain in Japan. I added that our letter of credit called for pounds and we, should like to have sovereigns or Bank of England notes. We compromised on 50 sovereigns each and orders on their Londou house (the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation) for 100. The orders were drawn for 98 17s. I asked why he made this reduction. His explanation, If it meant anything, signified that 1,469.04 yen equals 150, but that 150 does not equal quite so much. The calculations were all made by a young Chinaman on an abacus. When sending a cablegram from Yokohama the Japanese gentleman at the window calculated on his abacus that twenty-three words at 3.84 yen per word would cost, something over 92 yen, but as I knew that at 4 yen per word the charge would be exactly 92 yen I declined to accept the calculation and thus saved over 4 yen. At Nagasaki the pleasant young man at the window wanted to make the charge 4.84 yen per word, but when I asked if the charge was greater from Nagasaki than from Yokohama he said he thought I wanted to send "wy" Shanghai. These errors may have been accidental, but pople who ought to know say not. The cable people should certainly furnish better service. Tbe coaling of the Empress of India at Nagasaki was a revelation to us. On going on deck in the early morning we found the vessel surrounded by lighters and barges filled with coal from the neighboring mines. Perched on the coal were the gangs of coal-passers men, women and children. Some of the laWer did not appear to be over seven years old. Tbe men and women soon rigged up a number of stages or stairways tied together like hanging book shelves, the boards at the bottom being much broader than those above, the whole being strengthened by lashing strong pieces of bamboo on each side along the inclined plane mado by the regularly receding edges of tbe steps. The steps were from two and a half to three feet apart and each set extended from tho seventeen-inch port holes of the vessel to or near the surface of the coal heap In the lighters. Bach barge was supplied with innumerable grass baskets, pot-shaped and fitting together like round-topped hats In a hat store bandbox. The baskets were distributed. The gangs formed double lines, extending from the most remote part of eac'i barge to a port hole of the vessel. Immediately the children, men and women stationed on the barges commenced to fill the baskets, which were at once passed with great rapidity from hand to hand along the line to the port hole, through which It was deftly thrown to the person Inside, who, with one? motion apparently, turned the contents Into the coal hole and cast the empty basket within reach of the child, whose duty If was to collect them, pack them in small bundles and pass them out through a port hole to a boy outside, who threw them with unerring aim to the workers on the barge below. No attempt was made to make easier work for the women. Indeed I think they did the heavier work, because they appeared to occupy most of the positions on the ladder-like staging, where the baskets (containing twenty to twenty-five pounds) had to be thrown from step to step. The effectiveness of this way of coaling may be Judged from the fart that some fourteen hundred tons were deposited In the ship's bunkers in less than seven hours. Everything in Japan seems to be best performed by hand labor, the little horses, Invariably led, seeming unable to haul a greater load than two or three men or men and women.

Fitzmorris' Home Run, Tho moment the record-breaking race around the world, upon which depends the award of a prize of $1,000 is declared ended, the Chicago boy will be escorted to the City Hall to receive the congratulations of muni cipal and State officials. SUCCUMBS TO II M1UGIJT FEVER Death of British Consul-General W. Clayton Pickersglll. After an illness of several months W. Clayton Pickersglll, C. B., British Consul-General at this port, succumbed at an Alameda sanitarium yesterday to Madagascar fever, which he contracted years ago In Africa and from which ho never fully recovered. Decedent was born In Lancashire, England, In 1846, and after a college education went to Madagascar In 1873 as an agent of the London Missionary Society. He entered the coWular service In 1883 and was appointed Vice-Consul at Antanarlvo, In Madagascar. In 1892, 'recognition of his efficient service, he was decorated with the Order of Companion of the Bath and made Consul to the Portuguese possessions In West Africa and the Independent State of the Congo. It was during a tour of inspection of tho Congo river to the Free State that he was stricken with a malignant fever and waj HI for eighteen months in England after a hasty return from Africa. He was mada Consul General to this port in 1898, succeeding Joseph W Warburton. Until his successor Is appointed the British consulate will be In charge of Vico-Consul Wellesley Moore. When the news of Consul Pickersglll's death became known yesterday all the British ships in the harbor half-masted their flags and many foreign consular and other officials called at the British consulate to express their regrets. The decedent was a member of the Pacific, tTnlon Club, the British-American Vnlon and the British Benevolent Society. He leaves a widow and four sons. The funeral, which will be private, will b held to-morrow from the Pickersgill home In San Rafael. Connty C'lerU'a Report.

VLADIVOSTOCK, June 15. On this, the' twenty-third day out from New York, we reached the eastern port of Russia, Vladivostock. After a rather uncomfortable two days on the little Japanese coaster from Hakodate we steamed Into the harbor and brought up close to tbe quarantine boat. After we had been inspected by a silent of ficial the Harbor Master came aboard and gave us an agreeable surprise with his cour- 4 teows' manners and flow of English. He ex amined our passports, stamped them and ordered a boat to take us ashore. We were warned not to take photographs about the town as our cameras would be confiscated and imprisonment for one year would be the result of any "snap shooting." Getting into a "droskky," a vehicle worth a few remarks further on, we were'driven to the United States Consulate office, where we met Mr. Greener and his secretary, who afterwards accompanied us about town. Tho afternoon was spent in having lunch, a somewhat lengthy affair, in making purchases of blankets and comforts for the long Journey across Siberia and in getting the much needed bath. The droehky mentioned above is a somewhat novel affair, with its very low body, small wheels and projection from the driver's foot-board. On the .carriages of the wealthy people there Is another Iron piece on the right side, horses are hitched to these and help pull the vehicle up the steep hills of which Vladivostock has quite a number. The most curious things about the outfit are the horseshoe collar over the horses' heads, and the driver, usually a bearded1 fellow with a long, sleeveless coat and polished hat. A ride In one of these carriages is full of excitement and the spice of danger because the horses tear through the streets and around corners at break-neck speed, the carriage bumpong over the stones and the driver shouting to pedestrians to get out of the way. -l OF INTEREST TO US.
