Tbe prince ot the Lismarck Archipelago
has been iu the city for nearly two weeks,
and left for his home yesterday on tbe
steamer Alameda, says the San Francisco
Although the young man is the most In
teresting character in the South Seas, it
Is hardly to be wondered at that his Identity
was not learned while he was at the Palace
Hotel, for there he registered under his
name, which is J.M.CoeForsiylli
While here the prince drew on London for
as many 500 reiultlnii tsasiuintci ,. .,
required. He spent Uie money with gener
osity. When he came to leave for his home
Quite a crowd gathered on the Oceanic dock
to see him off. Among lho-e present were
members of the family of his grandfather,
who was Jona'sM.Coe, for many years con
sul of the United States at Samoa.
Thearrhipclago potentate will go through
to Sydney on the steamer Alameda. At
Sydney the prince's own schooner, the
Three Cheers, will be waiting toconvcy him
to the Bismarck Islands, spots on the ocean
that his mother owns outright. The palm
covered isles are not far from New Guinea
nnd New Britain. On the latter Island Is
the real residence ot Coe Forsaylli, but he Is
on the other Islands much of his time.
To look at the young man no one would
supect that he is Crown Prince of the
Cannibal Islands and likely to be recog
nized as the only authority on the death
of his mother. There is only a trace of
native blood In his veins and his whole ap
pearance is that of a stcdious gentleman,
more accustomed to European universities
than to the wildness or jungle islands under
the equator. It Is true, though, that on
the ElfnArck Archipelago arc to be found
about the only cannibals In this world
that tbe missionaries have allowed to go
unconverted. While these natives eat each
other, they only Indulge In this diet when
the different trilies are at war.
There are five gronps of Islands In the
principality to which Coe Forsayth Ib nor
returning. While most of Ihe islands are
small, the number of them Is so great that
the aggregate amount of land owned by
the young man's mother Is 151, COO acres.
She has leen offered a half million dollars
for ber possessions, ami bas scornfully re
fused it, as It is believed that the pro

The lifo of this youcg man's mother, the
Queen of thco distant Islands, is one or the
wonders of the South Seas. She is the new
woman of the South Pacific, the one person
of her sex in that part of the world who has
proved herself possessed of great business
and executive ability. To-day she is man
aging the entire property, which consists,
besides the five groups of Islands, of fiv
large trading stores, a fleet of schooners,
and agencies in Sydney, London and Liver
Jonas M. Coe went to Samoa many years
ago. If he was not the pioneer American
consul there, he was one of the rirst. Ho
married a native Samoan woman, a lovely
girl, made all the more lovely by the fact
that an admixture with white blocd had
made her features regular. The result ot
the union was the birth of the girl who
has now grown up to be everywhere recog
nized as the most progressive and the most
interesting ot island queens.
November Winds.
(Atter Edgar Allanroe.)
O, listen to the sighing of the wind.
Will It never cease its crying.
Like the sobbing of the dying.
Or the living by the dying?
Left behind?
O, hark ye to the moaning of the wind.
Weird awful Is Its groaning.
For some treachery atoning;
Now 'tis blaming, now condoning.
Both combined.
O, attend ye to he wailing of the breeze.
All the ghostly Jury hailing.
It is some sad fate bewailing.
As it steathtly goes trailing
Through the trees.
Hark, I bear the distant calling ot the
Now, my spirit, 'tis enthralling,
Witb its dolerul rising, railing,
Aud metbluks I sec the sad.
Appalling hosts.
Just Dropped.
Little drops of nickels
In the slot macules
Makes the owner falter
And the dropper lean.
