SEATTLE BEER AT THE Sale mm SALOON ON PACIFIC PLANTS The Botany of Raratonga in Particular- some Forms of Plant Life Are Wide'y Distribute! From Hawaii to Nsw Guinea. Mr. T. F. Cheeseman, curator of the Auckland Museum, who returned to that city recently from a botanizing expedition .to Raratonga Island, in the Cook group, is engaged in arranging and classifying the rich store of spe cimens of the flora of that tropical isl and which he brought back with him in the steamer Ovalau. Until his work of classification is completed he will not be able to give a complete sum mary of the result of his mission, but he informs the Auckland Star that the results of his botanical researches on Raratonga are very satisfactory. "I found three hundred and twenty sDecies of flowering plants and ferns during my exploration of Raratonga,' said Mr. Cheeseman, "and of these sev eral were entirely new species. The isl and is rich in varieties of plant life considering its small size. Of course, on other tropical places of large ex tent, such as New Guinea, the flora is much more varied, as the size of such islands is much greater than that of Raratonga. There are some forms of plant life which are widely distributed over the whole of the Pacific, from Hawaii to New- Guinea; but again, there are others which are peculiar to particular islands. In Raratonga found that much of the vegetation was allied to that of Tahiti on the eastern side, and to Samoa on the other hand; a fact which is of deep interest. The flora of most of the other islands of importance in the South Seas has been classified, but previous to my visit nothing had been done in the direction of exploring Raratonga from a botani cal point of view." When Mr. Cheeseman has completed his work of arranging the plants which he has collected he will set to work on a report for the Linnaean Society. His mission to Raratonga was undertaken partly in response to a request from the scientific authorities at Kew. Mr. Cheeseman also took an interesting series of photographs of native life, scenery, etc., during his stay in Rara tonga. VENEZUELAN REVOLT. PONCE (Porto Rico), Sept. 11. The steamer Philadelphia, Captain Cham "I. r . - uers, irom Venezuelan ports, brings news of the spread of the revolution and the waning strength of the' Gov ernment. The insurgent leader, Gen eral Citrano Castro, has 10,000 men un der his command. According to the same authority a strict censorship of cable dispatches has been established. Mail matter is freely opened and a close watch is kept upon outgoing pas sengers. President Andrade has pur chased a Spanish gunboat with an equipment of eight guns for $135,000. Sixty-six prominent politicians, among them Senor Hernandez and the editor of El Preganaro, were arrested on August 14th and more than 500 have been taken into custody since. A fierce battle was fought on August 23d, near Barquisimeto, when the insurgents captured 2000 Government troops and secured a large quantity of ammuni tion. INTERNATIONAL INDIGNATION. LONDON, Sept. 10. With the excep tion of the Jesuit organ in Rome and the anti-Semite papers, the press of the whole world is ringing with "execra tions. Even the Russian press joins in the chorus, although perhaps the Jews are nowhere more hated than in Russia. The judges are everywhere described as criminals and gloomy spe culations are indulged in as to what future is in store for France. The German press is especially indig nant, the National Zeitung remarking that "even the worst enemy of France could not have wished what has hap pened." Papers of all nationalities fall in with the idea of boycotting the Expo sition. ALASKA BOUNDARY SETTLED. WASHINGTON, Sept. C There has been a definite agreement between the United States and Great Britain res pecting the Alaskan boundary and a formal announcement only awaits a re ply to notes sent to Great Britain by Secretary Hay covering minor proposi tions. This information comes from the highest authority. The temporary boundary line, as agreed upon, is slightly in favor of Canada. The Do minion gains a few miles of snow and ice, but every point contended for by Secretary Hay has been gained and no concessions have been made that will be objected to by any reasonable Am erican. Ne?r Bill at the Orpheum Tonight LANDS IN LONDON Worth Sixty -Five Mil lions an Acre. Soma of the London Streets Which ar Worth Their Weight In Golden Sovereigns. One of the surest and safest ways of becoming rich beyond the dreams of EAarice. would, (says the London Daily Mail) be to possess a few acres of land in the heart of the City of London, or, in fact, a single acre would make one wealthier than the most lucky miner that ever starved in Johannesburg This was proved conclusively the other day, when the freehold of No. 54 Cheapside was sold for 2S,500, which is enual to 60 Der sauare foot, or 2,013,600 an acre. The hiehest price ever asked for laad in London was at the rate of 13 million pounds sterling per acre. The golden spot was in Bermondsey, where a few years ago a small piece of pro perty was offered to the South-Eastern Railway Company for 1,250,000. No wonder the railway company declined to buy. Coming back to the city again, we find that the ground about Lombard street 'is worth not less than 2,000, 000 an acre, while something like 40 a square foot was paid for every piece of the land between King William Statue and Trinity-square, E. C. In Cannon-street, in 1880, 600 square feet of land was sold for building sites for 4500, which amounts to 7 10s a square foot, or nearly 330,000 an acre In the same year building sites in GracechurCh-street realized 18 18s square foot, or 820,000 an acre. In 1886 these prices increased by leaps and bounds in the same streets, 12S5 square feet of ground being sold for 37,000, which is 28 16s per square foot, or not far short of 1,260,000 an acre. Going westward land becomes some what cheaper, but still sufficiently high to make it no exaggeration to say that metaphorically sneaking Londoners walk on gold. For instance, one could buy an acre in Pall Mall for half a mil lien sterling, but if ground was requir ed in St. James'-square of St. iames'- street something like three-quarters of a million would be required for a like quantity. Three years ago the Lord-Lieuten ant of Ireland was letting his land on the Cadogan Estate in Chelsea at 550,000 an acre on building leases with an annual ground rent of half a crown a foot. Three acres of his pro perty near Sloane-street was sold for 9? years for 175,000. The Marquis of Salisbury owns five acres of land at Charing-cross, which, 250 years back, was leased for grazing purposes to his ancestors at the rate of 10s an acre for 500 years. These few acres are now worth about a sovereign a foot. The value of property in London has trebled since 1856, and today the houses within its borders are calculated to be worth some two hundred and fifty mil lion pounds sterling, and the land on which they are built is valued ait not less than six hundred million pounds. Upon the latter sum the landlords receive about twenty-five million pounds annually in rent; and, sooner or later, under the leasehold system, house property of enormous value will come into their hands. The owners of London include all sorts and conditions of men and wo men, from dukes to shareholders in building societies and owners of single tenements. These small owners num ber about 200,000. But the great bulk of the rental of the metropolis belongs to comparatively few people. The ground landlords include the Duke of Westminster, to whom a large portion of the Belgravia, Pimlico, and Governor-square district belongs. Then the Duke of Bedford owns chiefly the Coyent Garden district and Blooms- bury; Lord Portman and the Duke of Portland West and East Marylebone districts,, respectively; Lord Cadogan a large part of Chelsea; while the Mar quis of Northampton reigns in Cler kenwell, the Duke of Norfolk in the south of the Strand, the Marquis of Camden in Camden-town, Lord South ampton dn Tottenbam-court-road and Kentish-town, and Captain Penton dn the district of Pentonville. ON HIS DIGNITY. She: "Will you speak to papa?" He: "Never, unless he speaks to me first. It would oe unjust to you and to me, my dear, for he dropped me because I adored you. Any advance towards a reconciliation must be made by him." She What did papa say? He I asked his consent to outmar riage by telephone, and he replied, "I don't know who you are, but it's all right." ' Good Salesmanship ISN'T everything to good store! keeping; even a good salesman fails when he tries to sell cau tiously, clothing that Isn't made as it should be. In the long run only the best clothing pays; especially when the best clothing can be had at the price of the next best. Our clothing is so well made, so at tractive in appearance and looks so desirable that it re quires less energy and breath and persuasion on the part of the salesman to sell it. After we have sold it once, we can sell it with still less ef fort to the same customer. It is the kind of clothing that brings your customer back again and again the kind with which we can build up a lasting trade. And that is what we are doing in all our lines.
