Gold Fields of Cebu.
Captain Meany of the U. S. gun
boat Nesan, makes a trip through the
southern islands every fortnight. He
has probably the best opportunity to
know the islands and their possibili
ties of any one there. In the many
cruises he has taken, he has gleaned
much informatian which will be of
interest to our readers.
The captain when seen by a New
Otieitt man had the following to say
concerning the islands:
"The Island of Leyte is probably
the most promising in mineral
wealth, especially in the precious
metals. The other islands have
every evidence of abundant mineral
wealth, but Leyte contains metal in
paying quantities. About 12 to 15
miles from the shore of Leyte a party
of six men found a ledge of pure
quartz ore, which assayed on the sur
face $28 in gold, besides carrying
small quantities of copper and silver.
The vieti was about three feet wide
on the surface and had well defined
walls, It was, what is known in
mining parlance as, a true fissure
vein, or one which was formed when
the island was created. Consequently
it is permenent. Other similar veins
were found, but no assay of the ore
was made, but it looks like fine rock.
"Gold in places is also found on
this island, but just in what quanti
ties I could not learn.
"On the other Islands Minandao,
Sampango, Sunna and Cebu, gold,
silver and copper is found. The Isl
and of Leyte and these just mention
ed have an abundance of coaljbut it
is an inferior quality, possessing the
same characteristics that the Japan
"The mineral outlook is extremely
favorable, and the natives with a
little persuasion can be influenced to
permit the white man to enter the
Americans resident in Yokohama
complain that their resources are not
equal to the great drain on their
hospitalities which is a consequence
of the visits of American transports
and hospital-ships to that port.
Their hearts are enlarged by the
sight of American soldiers, especially
the sick soldiers, and they want to
do them all good and make them
happy; but though they have sys
tematized the work, they find it too
great for them to handle, and one of
them, in a recent letter published in
the New York Evening Post, calls
upon the War Department .to help
them out by establishing in Yoko
hama, a temporary reception hospi
tal, with surgeons and a few nurses.
The rest the local Americans will be
able to manage. The behavior of
the American soldiers who have
visited Yokohama has been very
much admired. There have been
several letters about it, and all re
ports concur-in proud approval.
The Filipinos have issued $3,000,
000 in paper money, the acceptance
of which is made obligatory.
Lawrence Hoon, a private in the
United States army at Manila, P. I.,
has been sentenced to be dishonor
ably discharged and serve one year's
imprisonment for having addressed
General Otis directly instead of
through a subordinate officer.
Near Grohogana, Java, there is a
lake of boiling mud about two miles
in circumference. Immense columns
of steaming mud are constantly as
cending and descending.
Public story tellers still earn a
good livelihood in Japan. In Tokio
600 of them ply their trade, provided
with a small table, a fan and a paper
wrapper, to illustrate and emphasize i
the points of truir tales. j
Reports from Manila say that
prices of raiment are rising, and that I
a suit of cotton drill now costs $3, '
and of white duck, $6. Shirts, it ap-)
pears, are not in fashion or use in !
Luzon except under shirts.
