COOOCOO OOOOO OCOOCO OOOOOOO 1 O O Mil Another Expedition to Leave the Coast. Mermaid" Fitting Out to Start About May 1st For South Sea. 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 Battery street. 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. HOW RUIZ DIED. Official Investigation to fc Corn- menced 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. More Trouble for sultan of Otto man Empire. 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 the. hope that the Porte would put a stop to the existing situation, a contin uation of which, it is added, may have serious consequences. Turkish officials in the Epirus are forcibly preventing the Greek Rahays (persons not Mahommedans. who pay the tax), who are Ottoman subjects. from Jeaving Epirus to join the Greek forces. IIAIUSISON'S ONE REQUEST. Wants to Namo Public Printer Uo- Itiest CirnnteVI. 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. Two years ago R. J. Warren, a drug gist at Pleasant Brook, N. Y., bought a small supply of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. He sums up the result as follows: "At that time the eoods were unknown in this section; today Chamberlain s Cough Remedy is household word." it is the same in hundreds of communities. Where ever the good qualities of Chamberlain's Coush Remedy become known the people will have nothing else.
