ON PACIFIC PLANTS
The Botany of Raratonga
some Forms of Plant Life Are Wide'y
Distribute! From Hawaii to
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
