Another Expedition to
Leave the Coast.
Mermaid" Fitting Out to Start
About May 1st For
SAN FRANCISCO, March :!0. An
other band of colonists will tempt
fori one in the South Sea Islands after
the .style of the Brotherhood of the
South Seas that left in the Percy Ed
v.'uds. The new expedition is headed
by no les.s a personage than the noted
Capt. Alexander McLean, who will
command the vessel which will take
th" colonists to the- South Seas.
McLean has not been able to find
any daring and risky operation to
busy his mind recently, and an adven
turous trip to the South Seas will just
ruit him. The man Who will guide the
colonists to an island where peace and
prosperity are to be found is Captain
Quinton. He has commanded four dif
ferent vessels running to the South
Sea Islands both from this city and
Sydney. He has been all through the
various groups and speaks the lan
guage of the natives.
The promoters of the new scheme
are not as secretive as the Brother
hood leaders were, and talk plainly of
their venture as a business proposition.
Captain McLean, Captain Quinton and
some others have bought the whaling
bark Mermaid, now laid up in Oakland
Creek, and will bring her over to this
city in two weeks to fit up for the trip.
The proposition is to take l.0 colonists
down to ore of the Solomon Islands in
the bark Mermaid cn or about May 1st.
A little after that a good cruising
schooner will be purchased and an
other band of colonists will go down to
the islands in her. The colonists will
develop the island they select, and the
schooner will be kept there for trading
purposes, while the bark will ply be
tween the colony and this port.
The bark Mermaid is an old vessel,
but her timbers are strong and well
preserved. All evidences of her hav
ing been a whaler will be destroyed.
Already most of the whaling tackle
lias been taken off the vessel. Between
decks will be fitted up for passengers,
and the bark will take nothing but
colonists and supplies. The promoters
of the scheme have had an advertise
ment in the papers for a day or two,
and there has been a rush of applicants
already to A. S. Lowndes' office, at HOG
Captain Quinton is full of enthusi
fism about the project. ITe says that
the Solomon Islands are very rich, and
only want to be developed. He has no
fear of the cannibals, as some islands
have very few inhnbitants. and they
live along the shore without ever pene
trating into the interior. Captain
Quinton is posted on the resources of
the islands, and gives glowing ac
mints of the prospects. Tho islands
are rich in valuable woods and fruits
"Wild coats and hogs roam about wait
ing to be hunted by enthusiastic sports
men. Flocks of pigeons darken the
sky. and the waters teem with fish. He
says that there are pearl fisheries
about the waters, and that on one of
the islands there is a copper mine.
As for the cannibals. Captain Quin-
ton's own words on tho subject are:
"There is no particular fear of the
cannibals. I have eaten with them.
They live on wild pigs, game and fish,
except when there is a battle, and then
those slain are eaten just as if they
were pigs or goats. Because they are
cannibals does not indicate that they
are going to kill you in order to eat
you. Where we are going, however,
there are very few natives, and they
are not troublesome. We would out
number them and they would fear us."
PARNELLITES IN DUBLIN.
Representatives From all Ireland
to Meet in Conference.
LONDON. March 20. At a meeting
of the Parr.ellite members of the Par
liament on Thursday last it was decid
ed to request John Redmond to call a
conference of representative Parnel
lites from all parts of Ireland to meet
in Dublin during the Faster week for
the prospects of the party. This step
was rendered necessary by the recent
attitude of Timothy Harrington, and
it is intended to make vigorous efforts,
both in Ireland and America, to
strengthen the r&rty.
The Lord Mayor of Dublin has is
sued invitations to a meeting at the
Mansion House there to float a Parnell
fund. Already a considerable sum has
been collected for the project and it is
expected it will meet with great suc
cess. It is learned that not only Mr.
Darnell's mother, but his brother. John
Parnell. are in pecuniary want, and but
for the prompt action of Mr. Redmond
and others they would have lost the
family estate at Wicylow.
Preparations are already on foot in
Ireland to celebrate the centenary of
the rebellion of 170S. A central com
mittee has been established in Dublin
and it is expected tnat large numbers
or Irish Americans will participate.
WASHINGTON, March 21 It is ex
pected by the State Department offi
cials that the inquiry to be conducted
into the causes leading up to the death
of Dr. Ruiz, the naturalized American,
in a Cuban prison, will soon be com
menced. The investigation will be con
ducted in Havana or in the place where
Ruiz was imprisoned, and Consul-General
Lee will be present in person or
will be represented by some one to
look after the interests of the family
of Ruiz. Secretary Sherman tonight
expressed the belief that the investiga
tion into the affair will be a thorough
and fair one, assurances to that effect
having been given by the Spanish Gov
ernment. SEKVIA COMPLAINS OF TURK.

CONSTANTINOPLE, March 19.
The Servian Minister here has called
the attention of the Turkish Govern
ment to the situation of affairs exist
ing in the Province of Kossovo. where
it is asserted the Christians are panic
stricken in consequence of the mobil
izing of the Turkish reserves and Ba-shi-Bazouks.
The Minister also drew the Porte's
attention to the recent attack upon
Servian and Austrian Consuls in a cafe
at Uskuk. situated about 100 miles
northwest of Salonica. and referred to
the correct attitude observed by Servia
during the present crisis, expressing

IIAIUSISON'S ONE REQUEST.
Wants to Namo Public Printer Uo-
WASHINGTON, D. O, March 19.
Ex-President Harrison, when he called
upon President McKinley on Wednes
day, said to him:
"Mr. President, I have one request
to make you, and one only, and it is
that you appoint as Public Printer Mr.
Palmer of Illinois, who served in that
capacity during my administration."
President McKinley assured General
Harrison that- bis request would be
granted, so it is certain the Palmer
will succeed Public Printer Benedict
as soon as the latter's term has ex
pired, and perhaps sooner.
