AMERICAN PACIFIC CABLE,
Line To The Orient Considered Already
In ftlK* t.
Oyster Hay, Au^. 11.—Several months
ago the Pacific Commercial ('able com-
pany sought permission from the ex-
ecutive branch of the government to
lay a Pacific cable running from San
Francisco via Honolulu and (iuam to
China, there to connect with the llrit-
ish cable to the Philippines. The
proj>o.sition of the company was to
assume all expenses of laying and
operating the cable and to grant to the
United States government special rates
and in certain conditions of war prac-
tically absolute control of the cable.
Mr. Roosevelt referred the whole
subject to Attorney (Jeneral Knox,
with a request that he go carefully
over the proposed conditions. The
result of his investigation and his con-
clusions Mr. Knox presented to Presi-
dent Roosevelt, during a long inter-
President, Roosevelt approved of the
amended conditions, and so far as the
executive branch of the government is
concerned the company now may pro-
ceed with the work of laying the cable.
It, is regarded as essential, however,
that the conditions be ratified by act
of congress, as some doubt exists of the
right of the executive branch of the
government alone to grant such priv-
ileges as are included in the Pacific
Commercial Cable company's proposi-
Attorney General Knox is inclined
to the opinion that the company will
practically proceed immediately to con-
struct its line. Considerable time will
be required for the preliminary ar-
rangements before the actual laying of
the cable begins, but it is regarded
now ascertain that an American-owned
and operated cable line to the Orient is
lly those who have studied the sub
jeefc it is believed that a cable laid
under the conditions proposed will be,
to all intents and purposes, a govern-
ment cable line, with few, if any, of
the disadvantages attendant upon gov-
ernment construction and maintenance

FOR COLLECTION OF RENTS.
Frinra Transferred Title* to Facilitate
Washington, Aug. 9.—The war de-
partment has Known for some time
that portions of the Friar lands in the
Philippines have been disposed of to
companies, and all of the recent nego-
tiations conducted by Secretary Root
have carefully taken into account any
contingencies which might arise
through these transfers. The facts
were fully communicated to the gov-
ernment here by Governor Taft. The
latter also explained this matter of
alleged transfer to the senate commit-
tee on the Philippines. In the course
of his evidence before the committee.
Governor Taft said, in answer to the
question whether the Friars were in
actual possession of the lands:
"Generally in order to avoid hostili-
ties, they have transferred their titles
to companies and retained a majority
of the stock*."
As to the bona-fide nature of the
transfers to certain companies, Gov-
ernor Taft said that he had cross-
examined the heads of religious orders,
"I think after you read the evidence
it will become obvious that while it is
true that transfers have been made,
they have been colorable in this sense
—not fraudulent, I do not say that—
but they have been colorable in the
sense that the transfer made was for
the purpose of giving the public the
impression that the Friars had parted
with their titles and thus facilitating
the collection of rents, while in fact
the ownership is still retained. That
is my information as to the condition
of the titles now, in spite of the pro-
test filed by some stock-holders with
respect to the ownership of some

the prompt reply. "Then I'll have to
