Cultivation of Pearls In lower Cali

In the gulf of lower California there Is
In operation the largest pearl farm In the
world, where the cultivation of pearls has
been taken up as a practical Industry. To
harvest the annual crop of pearls on this
farm requires the labor of 1,000 people. In

methods have been completely revolution

shells during the season when the eggs
are being deposited, are placed In pro

little artificial channels, made to Imitate

is taken to protect the young mollusks
from their natural enemies. When they

NEW YORK, Oct. 10. Colonel deorste W.
Goethals, perioral directors of the Panama
canal wan placed on the witness stand yes
terday In tha Inquiry that Is being- conducted
before Inspector General Garllngton as the
result of charges of discrimination and
favoritism In awarding cableway contracts
for the canal by the govrmmont officials.
Colonel Qoethals took the stand toward
the end of the session replete with sensa
tional Incidents. A. T. Brothers, who
brought the charge, had accused Bpencer
Miller, a representative of the Udgerwood
Manufacturing company, of perjury and
had followed this accusation by the charge
that the Inquiry was not being conducted
on fair lines, saying the witnesses for the
defense were the only ones given a hearing.
Mr. Brothers became highly excited and
announced that he would withdraw from
the hearing. Ho went so far as to leave
tho room, but returned a few minutes later.
It was shortly sfter this that Colonel
Goethals was called on to testify. In a
voice that betrayed his deep feeling over
the chsrges made by Mr. Brothers Colonel
Goethals entered Into a defense of the
manner In which the cableway contract
had been awarded.

these charges fully, but the matter will not

taken up until tomorrow when Colonel
Sleberts, who Is familiar with the entire
Charges Snap Jndgrraeat.
In his endeavors to explain how contracts
had been awarded In as fair a manner as
possible. Colonel Goethals talked at great
length and answered questions put to him
by Senator Slater and others Interested.
The witness repeatedly stated that the In
quiry was so quickly called that he had
not been prepared to combat tha charges
made, saying on this point:
"I knew 'nothing about this Inquiry until
I came up from the Isthmus to take a rest.
When I arrived In New Orleans I was hit
In the face with the charges. I have had
to get my Information from Washington
as to the details, but I will be able to prove
the absolute lack of foundation for any
claim that there has been favoritism shown
In the bidding for the cableway system is
"If an attempt has been made to prove
collusions between the Lldgerwood company
or any other company and myself, I deny
any foundation for It," sail Colonel Ooe

are not expert In many other lines. When
we want to get materials we consult as fur
as possible business men who are experts
The New York Cableway company Is not
the Judge of what we want. Neither Is Mr.
Slater or Mr. Brothers nor Mr. Miller."
The charges that the specifications ad
vertised in the second bid had limited
the bidding to two companies was then
taken up by Colonel Goethals and ha
named nine other companies which he

"If anyone can show me that I have

Colonel Goethals. "A matter I want I

of Mr. Wood of the New York Cableway I
and Engineering company. Mr. Wood
asked' If It would be of any use for his
firm to bid on other works He said he
had been told on the Isthmus that his
firm could never do any work down there.
I told htm that his Informant was a

my office I would tell him the same
Spencer Miller asked to be heard before
an adjournment was taken, saying he
wished to look at a set of patent plans
of a device proposed to be used If the
cableway company secured the contract.
Senator Slater objected on the ground
that Mr. Miller wanted to criticise the
plans. A discussion followed which re
sulted In Senator Slater asking permission
to have the plans withdrawn as an ex
