It gave a Bulletin Toprosonta
tivo much gratification to spend
anthour or two Saturday ovoning
in company with Captain Enrico
Altiorto D'AlberfiB, -of tho Italian
Royal .Naval Uoaorvo, at his quar
ters in the Hawaiian Hotel. 'From
an interview republished 'in this
papor, which the captain had giv
enithe Now Zealand Herald, read
ers -wo-uld have gathered that ho
was a traveler of no ordinary note.
The writor was ufforded evidence
on this occasion that Captain D'
Albertis is also a keen investiga
tor "undanenthasiastic collector of
tho curiosities belonging toconn
triosiio'visitB. In thisconnootion,it
may bo mentioned that bo remark
ed on tho abBonoo of relics of
peace and war, in thia capital of
Hawaii, of tho ancient Hawuiians.
In one of tho stores wbere native
curios. are sold, ho observed with
disappointment that the ouly Ha
waiian nvnpon was one pear.
Captain D' Albertis is a lively
conversationalist, one of those
Europeans, too, who seem ablo to
compel English to their tongues
in an emergency. Still, in his
friendly eagerness to make Iub
conversation perfectly clear, ho
found giat comfort hero in tho
genial comradeship of Eobort "W
Wilcox, who speaks Italian fluent
ly. Mr. Wilcox was assiduous in
his attentions to tho distinguished
visitor during hiB entire stay,
driving him to all the points of
interest in and about the city.
In tho New Zealand interview
on account was given of tho cap
tain's voyoging in his yacht Cor
saro, which came to grief
eventually in a collision
with a British steamer at the
opening of tho Kiel canal in
Germany." The yacht was named
after tho Corsair of Lord Byron.
Captain D'Albertis preserves tho
memory of his loved craft in a
photograph of it taken on board
Emperor William's yacht Hohon
zojlern by Priuco Henry. Ho
Baid he was promoted from liou
tenant in the navy to the honora
ry rank of captain by tho Italian
Govornmont, as a mark of appre
ciation of hiB explorations on tho
route taken by tho caravels of
Columbus when ho discovered
America. Upon an annotated
chart ho showed the writor whore
the official charts of that immortal
voynge must havo been wrong in
denoting tho spot where Colum
bus cast anchor in tho West In
dies, poiuting out at tho same
timo tho more probablo anchorage
and supporting his theory with
tho facts of prevalent winds and
Answering a remark of regret
that his 6tay in the islands was
going to bo so short, tho captain
said lie had erred in not having
his correspondence directed to
Honolulu. It had been some
months since he had received auy
report of hi6 private business, and
it was necessary for him to hasten
on to Sau Francisco. "Opportu
nity ,".as he shrewdly put it, had
carried him from point to point
on this journey.
"I was at Capetown," ho said,
"intending to return homo direct.
But I thought it might bo a long
timo before I should havo so good
an opportunity again of paying
anothor visit to Now Zealand.
Whou I was at Tahiti I had an
appointment at 10 o'clock one day
to visit the Governor. A sailing
vessel was to leave for the Mar
quesas at noon, and hero
was an opportunity. At
11 o'clock I was taking luncheon
with a Scotch merchant, and had
not yet decided to sail for tho

Editor Evening Bulletin:
Tho lautana is year by year
spreading over our large tracts of
uncultivated laufls in spito of the
foeblo pffdrto whioli havo been
made to keep it in check. It will
bo found impracticablo to compol
land-owners to clean their lands
until the lantana is found to pos
sess somo commercial valuo, bo
cause in somo cases tho oxponso
of cleaning would oxceed tho valuo
of tho land. Lantana has been
held in high esteem from timo
immemorial by tho natives of
Brazil, Bolivia, Poru, and othor
South-Amorican republics as an
cfiicieat remedy against typhoid
aud malarial fevers. Dr. Buiza,
of Lima, after a thorough trial of
tho drug ju tho hospital of that
city, arrives 1111116 following con
clusions: I. Lantaniu is superior to qui
nino as a remedy against fevers.
II. Liko quinine it reduces tho
high temperature in fevers, bul
has tho advantage of being well
tolorated oven by tho most dolicato
III. Intermittent fevers which
would not yield to quinine havo
boon cured by lantanin.
IV; Fevers that will not yiold
to quinine or lantanin when given
nlono may bo cured by giving
Y. Lantanin is also an efficient
remedy against facial neuralgia.
Dr. Buiza found that the orudo
drug or a tincture of it iB very
bitter and produces much nausea,
consequently Dr. Negrote, chief
of the laboratory of pharmacolo
gy, isolated the activo principle
which ho named lantanin.
Dr. Lugo-Vina of Cieufuegos,
Cuba, has also used lantanin aud
ho praises it very highly.
Having failed to obtain lantanin
in the United Statos, I wroto to
Merck & Co. of New York, asking
them if they would isolato from
lantana to bo Bent to them from
theso islands about 20 pounds of
lantanin to bo distributed among
tho physicians hero to ascertain if
tho drug really possosses tho mer
its attributed to it by Drs. Buiza,
Lugo-Vina and many others who
have used it. Morck's laboratory
for tho preparation of alkaloids is
in Darmstadt, Germany, conpo
quontly my lottor was forwarded
there for consideration, and tho
last mail brought mo the follow
"Darmstadt, July 29, 189G.

tendent of tho hospital for tho
treatment of loprosy, Honolulu.
"Dear Sir: Merck&Co. of Now
York havo transmitted to mo for re
ply your favor of Juno 18th. I am
perfectly willing to isolate lantanin
from lantana, but I do not know
having had no exporionco in tho
matter what tho yiold of the
drug is likely to bo. For this
reason I am unable-' to say what
quantity ofk tho drug would bo
necessary to. obtain 20 lbs. of lan
tanin. One thing 'isTiortaiti, that
nt least 200500 kilogrammes
would bo requisite for trial opera
tion. Please send mo this quanti
ty of tho drug and I will hold
some of tho lantanin at yoiir dis
posal. Yours faithfully, E,
If Borne of our public-spirited
citizens will boar tho oxponso of
Bonding to Darmstadt a few bales
of lantana and extracting tho lan
tanin, I will distribute it among
my colloaguos of theso islands,
who will tost its raorits. If tho
claims of Dr. Buiza aro true, lan
tana will not be regarded as a
post, for its valuo as a drug will
cortainly pay moro than tho ex
pousos of clearing tho laud.

Richard Gird, owner of tho
great Chino boot sugar ranch and
factory in San Bernardino County,
California, was recently in Sau
Fraucisco in connection with tho
sale of that property to an English
syndicate for $1,600,000. Whilo
thoro ho gavo tho Chroniclo tho
following information concerning
this year's crop of bodts and tho
output of sugar thorof rom :
Mr. Gird said tho Chino sugar
beet fuctory is now turning out
100 tons of grnnulatod beet sugar
a day, and that it will keep this
up throughout tho Bonson until
about' 80,000 tons of beets are con
sumed. Mr. Gird says tho degree of sac-
charino matter., contained in tho
boots this year is averaging 16
per cent, whilo last year tho aver
age wis 15.2, and that thoy aro
gotting 250 pounds of sugar from
each ton of boots. Thoro were
G500 acres planted to beets last
year, but this year tho noreuge
will bo 10,000, aud Mr. Gird hopos
to eoe tho eniiro ranch, -aggregating
40,000 acreB, ultimately plant
ed. Tho factory has recently had
important now machinery added.
Thoro aro 1200 poople now era
ployed upon tho ranah harvesting
the beets and iu tho factory. As
soon as tho harvesting is com
pleted tho plowing will begin, and
thero will bo omploymont for
thoso engaged for a long timo to
come. Tho season opened July
27th and will continue bix months.
Mr. Gird is impressed with the
fact that a higher degree of sao
charino substance can bo obtained
from beets grown in California
than from nny place in tho world;
that beets can be plautod to maturo
in successive mouths to make tho
season longer, aud that sugar pro
duced from beets is destined to bo
tho leading industry of tho Stato.
