OTHER MATCHES IN PROSPECT.
Captain Murphy of the Shenandoah
Beaten Into Port From the Horn
by tbe Jabez Howes.
The British ship Androsa and the
Italian bark Emilie Ciampa had an excit
ing race of it from latitude 16 north to San
Francisco. On that occasion they were in
company »nd exchanged signals. Cap
tain Marestasaid his vessel was from Ant
werp and bound for San Francisco, while
Captain Morgan responded that he was
from Caiota Buena, and also bound for
San Francisco* The result of the run up
the coast was that the Androsa beat the
Ciampa twenty-four hours into port. When
the two vessels were in company it was
only blowing about six miles an hour and
there was just enough wind to keep the
sails filled. During the night a breeze
sprang up and the vessel parted company
to meet again in this port.
The Androsa brought up a cargo of ni
trate, and it turned out in perfect order.
In fact, Herman & Mills, the stevedores,
say they never saw a nitrate cargo that
turned out as well. She will take in 3100
tons of general cargo for Liverpool, and as
she has just come off the drydock should
make a quick run. The Androsa has been
all around the world during the last eigh
teen months. From Antwerp s.e went to
Sutidswall, Sweden, in ballast, and from
there took a load of lumber to Delagoa
Bay. From the latter point she went to
Newcastle, N. S. W., in ballast, and there
loaded coal for Valparaiso. From Valpa
raiso she went to Pisagua in ballast, and
from the latter point was ordered to Caleta
Bunea, where she loaded nitrate for San
Francisco. A new patent anti-fouling
paint was put on her before sha sailed on
er eighteen months' voyage, and it
proved so effective that when she went on
the Union Iron Works drydock there was
hardly a barnacle found on her bottom.
Captain Morgan of the Androsa is well
known in San Francisco. He was here
as chief officer of the Somali when Cap
tain Hanney brought her in after her U ng
passage around tDe Cape of Good Hope
While here the captain of the Androsa
died, and Captain Morgan was at once
offered the uobition. He accepted it and
has been in the vessel ever since. He is a

The men on the Alaska Packers' Asso

that while they were in Alaskan waters
"one net at one haul" took in 73,000 sal
mon ; that the average weight of each ti&h
was eleven pounds and that the total
weight of the Bilvery mass was 412 tons.
Not a bad take (or one net, so it is no
wonder that the salmon pack is a very
heavy one thi« year.
The steamer Zealandia of the Oceanic
Steamship Company's line was towed to
Martinez by the tug Fearless yesterday.
She has been laid up for some time, but
lately made a trip to Central America
under charter to the Pacific Mail. A
thorough overhauling has been given her
at Pacific street, but now that the Aus
tralia is due she had to make way for her,
so the transfer to Mi rtintz was made.
Captain Deering will be in charge of tne
vessel while she is laid up and be took his
wife and family along to keep him com
pany. They will live aboard until the
Zealandia again goes into commission.
The bark Alden Be«se and the barken
tine Archer sailed for Honolulu yesterday.
Both vessels are fully loaded and have
several passengers eacli. The captains are
confident that they will make good time
ana Captain Potter asserts that he will
beat the Archer by twenty-four hours at
least. A number of Honolulu people
went away on the Archer, and the mem
bers of the Hawaiian band were down to
see them off. They played several musi
cal selections and sang a number of native
songs, much to the edification of a crowd
of about 300 people who gathered to hear

Captain Jepsen ib known from San Diego

Captain Murphy of the Shenanrtoah and
Captain Clupp of the Jabez Howes poked
a xood deal of quiet fun at each other yes

Captain Murphy has his wife and
daughter with him, and his eldest son is
third mate of the snip. Miss Murphy
graduated a few weeks before the Shenan
doah leit New York, and this is the first
trip that she and her mother have made
around the Horn in years. The genial
skipper has not changed a hair since he
was here last, and does not look much
older than his son.
When the big ship left here on her last
trip she took away a number of San Fran
cisco boys as apprentices. In speaking
about the matter yesterday Captain Mur
phy said: "Felix Humboldt is now a
cadet on the steamer St. Paul, Harry
Norris tired of the sea and went into busi
ness with his father in New York, Ross
Perkins is now third officer on the s ip
Solitaire, Generaux went out in the ship L.
Schepp to Japan and may now be back in
San Francisco, and Spires is captain of a
steamer. Before his appointment he had
been promoted to the position of third
officer of the Shenandoah, so you see the
apprentices all did well." It will be some
days before the Shenandoah will be able
to deck as it is hard work finding a berth
suitable for the big ship.
The Monadnock goes to the nary-yard
to-day and after a thorough overhauling
she will be turned over to the naval bat

will not go out of the bay and the men

The matter is now being pressed in navy

The matter was taken under advisement.

liable. Their bondsmen have been notified
and the shortage will be collected.

MANY MILLIONS IN THE DEAL.
Mining Men Are Deeply Interested
in It, as It Means a Great
Boom for California.
Mining circles are all in a flurry over
the prospective visit to San Francisco of
Hamilton Smith, the celebrated mining
engineer and manager. The coming of
Mr. Smith involves a deal which may
reach $20,000,000, and that is the chief rea
son for the unusual interest evinced in his
He is expected to arrive in this City
about November 1, coming direct from
London to investigate the Mariposa min
ing grant of 44,000 acres, with a viaw to
purchasing it for the Exploration Com
pany of London, Eng., of which he is the
head managing director.
The Exploration Company is by far the
wealthiest and greatest syndicate engaged
in mining in any part of the world. It is
known to be backed by the Rothschilds,
with unlimited resources, and its opera
tions are conducted on such a colossal
scale that even princes of finance are
astounded at its magnitude. It has many
millions of pounds sterling invested in
South Africa, where its business far ex
ceeds that of any similar concern. Be
sides, the company has heavy invest
ments in West Australia, New Zealand
and the Pacific Coast. Quite recently it
bought mines in Montana ior $34,000,000.
The company owns the Alaska Treadwell
mine, with 240 stamps; the Alaska Mexi
can, with 120 stamps, and the Alaska
Unite ;d also the Oneida mine in Amador
County and tne Lucky Boy in Oregon.
Quite recently the well-known California
mining man, Thomas Mem, who has as
sociated himself with tbe Exploration
Company, returned to California. He
came here und r instructions to hunt for
mining interests and to examine the
syndicate's properties. It is believed tliat
he investigated the Mariposa grant, and
h 8 advice to the home office in London
has resulted in a favorable consideration
of the proposition, since Hamilton Smith
has been directed to come out here for a
The Mariposa grant comprises 44,000
acres in the heart of Mariposa County. It
came originally from the Mexican Govern
ment In the form o: a gram to General
Fremont, and subsequently it has come
into possession of Senator Jones, Alvinza
Hayward, the Hobart estate and J. W.
Mackay, who paid something like $5,000,
--000 ior the property. A large number of
mines were worked on it once, but they
have been sTrut down while still paying
handsomely. And now these broad acres
of gold and silver ores are about to pass
into the hands of the English syndicate.
The fact that tne company intends pur
chasing tbe property has been admitted to
mining men by a co-worker of Mr. Smith.
It is regarded of so much significance, the
Mining and Scientific Press will say in its
issue appearing to-day:
The absorbing news of the week is the well
authenticatea report that the Mariposa grant
has been definitely offered to the Kxpioration
Company (Limited) of London. This is the cor
poration that lathered the South African gold
fields, the Coolgardie mines of West Australia
and the g;eat dividend-pay inj( properties of
Charters Towers in Queensland and intro
duced them to tbe British investing public.
Senator John P. Jones is now on his way from
the East to meet Hamilton Smith, the English
expert, at San Francisco and escort him oven
the grant. During the past year many mining
experts have visited the grant and made re
ports, but it is reserved for Hamilton Smith,
the highest salaried official of the Exploration
Compauy, to make the final report.
The Las Mariposas grunt comprised about
44,000 acres ov ine direct line of the mother
lode, and right in the heart of the mineral
belt. The title to the property Is derived un
der an old Spanish grant, and was acquired
by Colonel Fremont for a song. After floating
around the plains in the San Joaquin, Colonel
Fremont finally located his grant in the Sier
ras and cast anchor at Bear Valley. After
spasmodic speculation, during which, as a
sort of variety show, many actors made their
bow, the grant settled down to a policy of
masterly Inactivity. The Princeton, Mount

The greatest depth attained was at Prince

LINCOLN CITIZENS ANGRY
Marshal Hill Alleges That G. B.
Bates of This City Is a
Detective E. A. Lucas received a letter
from Ed Lewis, City Marshal of Lincoln,
Placer County, a few days ago, inquiring
as to the whereabouts and business stand
ing of one G. E. Bates, formerly the head
of tbe American Tailoring Company,
located at 30 Montgomery street.
Hill stated in his communication that
Bates had been in Lincoln some time ago,
and had there secured orders for suits
of clothes from eight citizens, who had
made a deposit with Bates and been given
receipts therefor signed "The American
Tailoring Company." Since that time
none of these men had been able to hear
from Bates, and no thread of a single suit
had been discovered.
Hill further said in his letter that he
bad been informed that Bate? was in Red
ding September 22, and was now headed
northward. He was said to have pursued
the same business tactics in Redding and
other cities as in Lincoln.
"On investigation," said Detective Lu
cas, "I find that the firm of which Bates
was said to be the head broke up about
two months ago. The clothing houses in
the vicinity, however, say that every day
a large pack of mail comes to 30 Mont
gomery street. It is doubtless from per
sons inquiring about suits that never ma
terialized. Marshal Hill says he will have
a warrant sworn out and- sent to me at
Bates' description is that of a man
about 5 feet 9 or 10 inches tall, 40 years of
age or thereabout, dark-brown hair ana
heavy dark-brown mustache, both shot
with gray, and he will weigh about 160
pounds and dresses very neatly. The men
from whom he is alleged to have secured

Professor J. Rigaed, a noted mining en
gineer of France, who is president of the
lately organized Ralstons Divide Minine

Mr. Rigaed was for some time director
of the famous mining school at Alais,
France, and for many years he has been a
contributor to the scientific press of the
world. It ia not improbable that he will
