15; IDE INCOMES OF RULERS Enormous Sums Drawn by Fe alties in Europ?. RUSSIAN HOUSE THE RICHEST 'Queen VIcloriu'a Snlary Small in ComparlHon. "WItU tlic Extent of Her Kmtflrc Sonic o Her Subjects Ilava Large llMennc-TUe Cmr Draw About $2,000 ail Hour. The popular notion in England that Queen Victoria, the ruler of the biggest and richest empire In the world, is the richest person on earth, is contradicted by the London Mall. In fact, it says her sal ary, $1,925,000 a year, la one of the small est paid to any ruler on the globe. And of that sum all except JlSO.frW is spent by the lord chamberlain, the master of the liorse and the lord treasurer, who are re sponsible for the maintenance of the royal household. -And of the latter amount. $1SO,OM is put by for a rainy day. so that the exact amount received by her majesty is only $303,009, as fixed by Parliament. Compared with the huge Incomes of many of her subjects, this is paltry in deed. Hera, too. Is the smallest salary that any British sovereign has ever re ceived. Most of the Queen's predecessors on the throne had at least ti,0M.OJH a year. ' OiMhe Queen's accession this was reduced to the present amount b the nation rak ing over the crown lands and paying Iti ' tstead a fixed sum annually. At one time the Queen's expenditure far exceeded her , income, and had it not been for a couple of legacies from her subjects the court expenses would have had to be curtailed. John Camden JCIeld bequeathed the whole of his property, more than $2,&00.X3 in value, to the Queen, and Mr. Xevvhouse, aylng without heirs, left $50,009 to her majesty. Riper years brought wisdom, and by frugality and economy the Queen has been able to purchase 37,009 acres of goo'l land in Great Britain, yielding a rent roll of about 5105,000 a year. She alto owns con siderable property in Germany, a large quantity in New York and thousands of acres in Manitoba and "out west." Claremorit house, Osborne, and Bal moral are the private property of the Queen. The first-named, standing in its estate of -1C0 acres, she bought for S3?0,oa0 .c-a decided bargain, for it originally cost Iord Clive $730,000. Balmoral and Osbo-ne are said o be worth half a million sterl ing, In addition to he property at Co lwrg the Queen also poat,eses a villa at Baden, bequeathed to her by the Princ ess ef Ilohenlohe. The royal family Is not only the cheap est this country has ever had. it is afeo the most inexpensive In the world. The entire expense of the whole British royal family amounts to only SS5S.0M a year. -for against the total expenditure of 42. SOiJjO must be set the receipts of 52.075.W9 from crown lands, leaving the above net cost. ICearly all the European sovereigns re- ceive much bigger salaries than the Queen The Emperor of Russia has control over the revenue of his country, but he only ,4casvs, 512.70,000 a year. The Sultan takes $7,Cw),000, the Emperor of Austria $l.f&V Q and the Kaiser Wilhelm S3.,9. The King of Italj receives $2,ft5,0y0 the same Mm as the whole British royal farml and the King of thaBelglans gets only 62i.00Q a year. As the British empire is the biggest in the world, and as its sov - oraign roeive nrarlj- thysmallcst salary, it must be admitted that Victoria is t lie cheapest as well as the best of rulers. The private property of foreign sover eigns Is alto very great. The Ruslan imifenal family Is ihe richest of all roy al houses, and probably among eommon eps also. Apart from his salary as ruler, -which amounts to two and a half mil lions yearly, the Czar, as head of the lieoe of Romanoffs, owns 21.009.090 acr-s of land in different parts of Russia. These yield more than $10,000,09 per an num; S2.7j90.000 of this is paid in allow ances to forty-six grand dukes and duch esfes. and the remainder Is at the dis posal of the Czar, who thus enjoys the ft society' secrets I often eak out.

The Italian royal family have a private Income of $3,000,000 a year, also very largely derived from American prop erty. Thus, the British royal family Is by far the poorest of the great ruling houses. The Sultan of Turkey as a despot Is, of course, fabulously rich. His annual ex penses are said to amount to $30,093,000. A million and a half of this goes for the clothing of his harem, $109,000 for his own wardrobe, $7,CO0.0O0 for presents, $3,000,000 for pocket monev, and another $3,000,000 for his table. It seems Incredible that one man can spend so much money In one j ear. but when it Is renumbered that some 1.S09 people live within the palace j walls, llvo luxuriously and dress expen sively at the cost of the civil list, it ap pears more comprehensible. DEWEY'S LIVES. An Italian Ssirrrron Deprives Him f a 1'nrt of It. (rrom the New York Tribune.) There are a few olllcers of the navy who can recall when Rear Admiral George Dewey once before faced death, and an occasion when that oflicer didn't have half a chance; but It was an occa sion that he did not wish to have made public at the time nor for some time j afterward. Perhaps some will be prompt ed, when they meet him after his return from the Phipplne, to say to him. "Well, you had a liver!" But that is just what Admiral George Dewey hasn't, nor has he had one for several years. .New a good, whole liver Is regarded as indispensable to keep a man goinj, but De.vey has shown to the world what he can do v. th only a part of a liver. It was -when Dewey tva.s a captain only that he underwent a terrible operation under an Italian surgeon's knife and hazardc-d a possible chance of life, and for a long tim- afterward he suffered In tensely from the effects of the marve'ous excision. He wa? commanding officer of the sloop-cf-war Pensacola In the Ea.- pean squadron at the time,, and he had becomp-desperately ill from what marin ers are frequently troubled with, a "tropic liver;" In other words, what IS more comm6n!y spoken of an a "baked liver- r tropical liver ailment, which is as mi;:h more Severe than yellow jaundle? as all tropical diseases are more virulent than the cjrrespiding types In temper ate zones. On two ccvasion. Medical Di rector Hoehllhg. expressed alarm as to the result un ess.some relief v.as brought to hand. , Finally at Alalia a consultation was held between Surgeon Iloehling and his ass'st anT and an Italian specialist of Southern Italy, who bel ng d to theclas that make ihemjjcHes fnml':ir with those trou.ej. bec-auce in the el.mate of th? Mediterra nean they are an indigenous proJue-. The trouble was soon diagnosed, and it was suggested that the only relief was to remove that part of the liver that had become hardened. It was also recognized that the operation would be a hazardous one. When spoken to about It. Capt. Dewey asked whit was the chgnce of making the operation successful. The Italian expert responded ;-. "There's only one chance In ..en of your living through it." To this the officer replied that he would take that chance, and for the sur geons to go to work as soon as they wish ed. The patient was put under the in fluence of anatsrhetics. his stomach was cut Into, and the diseased end of the liver drawn out and inspected and then cut off. The remaining part was treated to prevent hemorrhage and then put back in place, and the lips made by the sur geon's knife were sewed up. The recov ery was a slow process, but it was a suc cessful operation, and he is as able :o do duty today as if no operatloln had ever been neeessary. But his most intlm.u acquaintances tay that the operation worked a change In his temperament.

The recent taking of the L.adrones by the Americans recalls the old theory of the peopling of America from tliejje islands. Magellan, some years be fore he sailed westward as a naturalised Spaniard, to discover the Xadrones and Io.se his life In the Philippines, had al ready, as a native of Portugal, sailed eastward to the Spice Islands, a part, geographically, of the Vhlllpplnes. When the Portuguese settled In the Sp:ce Islands they found the natives exchang ing bpices for silver and emeralds from the Ladrones. The Portuguese, however, were never able to find any mines of precious stones or metal in the Ladrones; and the question arose, "Whence came the silver and emeralds of the Ladrone Islanders?" Considering that emeralds were not produced In the East Indies, that the Ladrones had been evidently the home of an old civilization, and that the Ladrone Islanders were "still remarkable as navigators, it was concluded by cer tain writers that their silver and emer alds were from America; and, this con nection established, it was conjectured that here lay the answer to the fiue.Jtion, 'Whence came the American Indians?'' Of tlie Hying pioas of the Ladrone Isl anders, the reports of travelers are al most incredible. The appearance of the proa tilled the early voyager with as tonishment, and Its speed with wonder. "This invent Ion," says a recent wrl;er, "would do credit to any civilized na tion." The stem and stern are alike, cnd are very sharp. The boat sails in cither direction, and always with tho same side to the wind. On the windward sfde is a long outrigger, and at Us extremity is a log of wood pointed at both ends and parallel with the boat. This prevents the capsizing of the boat, the lee side of which is vertical, to prevent drifting to leeward, while the weather side is built in the ordinary manner. To change the direction of the boat, the free end of the yard is brought down while the other Is raised, and thus the direction of the boat is reversed, with that of the lateen or triangular sail, while the outrigger is still to windward. These proas passed between Magellan's ships going at full sail and the boats they towed astern, "so quickly and skil fully that It was a marvel." Van Noort, ihe lirst Dutch circumnavigator, says that "sometimes two hundred of these I proas, with four or five men apiece. would come to trade, all hallowing to gether Iliero, HIero, that Is. Tron, Jron,' and with very eagorness run their proas upon the ships." Jacques le Hermltc, who was off the coast of Guam in 1023, says that the Inhabitants came out six miles to meet him. with all sorts of re freshments to exchange for old Iron, and that there were a hundred and fifty proas trading with him at one time. An old writer says that "one of these proas being dispatched from Guam to .Manila, which is -iOit good leagues; performed the voyage in four days." Dampier, who was at Guam, during one of his voyages around the world, says; "I believe they are the fastest boats in the world. Sailing one by our log, .ve had .velve knots on our reel, and the whole of It was run out before we had turned the half-minute glas. which wa twelve miles per hour. I believe they run r.ear'y twenty-four miles an hoisr." Malte-l'rvn speaks of these Hying proas as "models of naval architecture." From thrse pioas ilagellan gave the IslanCs the appropriate name Isla de las Velas La Unas, or the Latcen-sall Islands; but hjs ailo-s called them Ladrone or Robber Islands, fifty-eight years later, .he Islands of Thieves. The Ladrone islanders were honest among themselves and kind to the stranger In distress. In 1G3S the ship Conception was wrecked on one of these islands. "The natives," writes Le Goblen. "gave friendly assist ance to those who were saved of the Spanish crew, and endeavored to alleviate their misfortunes by kind-treatment." r.ns Jardines. or The Gaidcr.s, and Dos Prazeres. or The Pleasant Islands, are among the names that have been given to these Is'ands; but since 1GRS their of ficial designation. In honor of Mariannc of Austria, has been The Mariannes. The first period of their known history 1521 to 1GCS. Is one of voyage and discov ery. That master spirit. Magellan, with his scurvy-stricken, starving crew, sreerfj his failing ships across the vaste of wa ters towards the high peak of Rota then southwestward to the evergren aylum of Guam. Refreshed, they proceeded. Ma gellan to his dea h In the Philippine? and the Victoria to the completion of ner cir cumnavigation. The Trinidad, endeavor ing to recross the Pacific, touched at two other islands of the Ladrones, and thrte sailors ran away, one of whom was pic'ted I up five years later by the ships oi Loya-a in still another inland of the Ladrones. i In 1523 Saavedra took nominal posses sion, as did Legaspi in IjTO, but no settle ments were made. Gaspar and Grijalva, writing in this latter year, describe the housvs as lofty, neatly built and well di vided Into apartments, the whole raised a story from the earth and supported upon strong pillars of stone. Besides these dwelling houses the natives had others for their proas, built likewise with great stone pillars, one of which con tained four large proas. During this pe riod Drake, Cavendish, Van Noort, Spll bergen, Schouten, Le Maire and the Nas sau lleet, on their way around the world, stopped at the Ladrones and were hearti ly welcomed and entertained by the na tives. The account given by Dampier of he remarkable bread-fruit tree is the best: "A certain fruit called the bread-fruit growing on a tree as big as our large apple trees, with dark leaves. The fruit is round, and grows on the boughs, lik? apples, "of the bigness of a gwod penny loaf. When ripe, it turns yellow, soft and sweet; but the natives take It green, and bake it m an oven -till the rind Is b'ack. This they scrape off. and eat the Inside, which is soft and white, like the Inside of new-baked bread, having neither seed nor stone; but if it is kept above twenty-four hours. It is harsh. As this fruit is in season eight months in the year, the natives feed upon no other sort of bread during that time. They told us that all the Ladrone Isles hatl plenty of it. I never heard of it in any othr place." Little ele Is known of the orig inal flora, but the crops at present are maize, tobacco and sugar, while cotton, colfee, rice, cocoa and Manila hemp are grown and the cocoa-palm is abundant. Deer are numerous, and cattle, hogs and fowls have run wild for more than a century. There are no snakes In the La drones. The second period, IOCS to 1G33, is that of conquest. The religious conquest is rep resented by the "Apostle of Mariana." Diego Luis de Sanvltores, the scion of an illustrious house of Old Castile, and de scended by his mother from a nephew of The Cid. He gave up the most brilliant prospect of court preferment to enter the Order of the Jesuits. He arrived at tho Ladrones with five other priests and some lay assistants In 1G6S. Ho established his faith In thirteen of the islands, founded eight churches and three seminaries, bap tized 30,000 natives, and was killed, at the age of forty-five, while successfully at tempting to baptize a baby against the will of its parents. His monument Is a few miles northwest of Agana. The political conquest is represented by soldiers who came with Sanvltores and by others who came later. The apostle did not want them, and the Historian lets us see them only Incidentally. A melee occurs, and these soldiers, happeniug to be there, fortunately find a cannon lying on the seashore. A ship from New Spain Is wrecked, and a hundred soldiers, guard ing some convicts bound for the Philip pines, are saved; and Goblen, the histo rian, says: "It was a succor which God seemed to send for the reduction of the islands." Burney, in his "Voyages," says: "Of all the intercourse of Europeans with the natives of the South Sea Islands, the settlement of the Ladrones by the Spaniards has been the most unfortu nate."

Goblen says they lived In peace and happiness; and they them selves said, after a few of their number had been killed: These Kuropeans had better remained at home; we needed not I their help to live happily," In complex ion, language, manners and governmctit they seem to have borne much resem blance to the Tagals of the Philippines. An ancient feudalism existed among them, the people being divided Into no bles, priests and plebians. Their religion was a sort of ancestor-worship. Kr?y- cinet. who commanded- the Uranle In a scientific expedition to determine the fig ure of the earth, says of the Chamorros: "We see these Islanders employing all their force, heroism, and cunning in the defense of their customs and of their independence. Twenty times beaten, twenty times they rise again. But In the end, decimated by war and by diseases until then unknown among them, they ceased to oppose a useless resistance to the powerful arms of European civiliza tion. Expatriation succeeds to these dis asters; and those who remain, the un-, happy remnant, are taken from their towns and their native Isles, and are concentrated at Guam,-at Saipan, and at Rota, and placed, aslt were, under the guns of the forts a guarantee of their obedience." The third historical period. 1C99 to 1S33. Is a chain of administrations by a "succes sion of governors appointed by the gov ernor general of the Philippines; the test of whom.

Agana, tm? capital, Is also a convict settlement. Ib-ls beautifully clean and possesses good government officials a hospital, schools, and i. church. The Spanish residents have usually numbered about twenty and the regular soldiery about 200, all quartered here. The mil itia, comprising about 'all the male popu lation, is commanded by native olllcers. Tho civil government Is similar to that of the Philippines. Postal communication has been quarterly. J , When first discovered the Ladrones had a population of about 50,000. Xot one of the original race survives, and the- is lands are peopled chjelly by Tagals and Bisayans from the Philippines, mixed de scendants of South American Indians, a colony of Caroline islanders who found ed Garapan In the Island of Saipan, and numerous Chamorro-Spanish half-breeds. The census of 1SSS reports a population of 6,470 In Agana, and a total of 10.172 In all the islands, 5.031 being males and 5.133 females. There are eighteen schools In the Island of Guam. Only 10 per cent of tho Ladrone Islanders are unable to read and write. Spanish is the recognized Ian-, guage; but many of the natives speak a Utile English.

The San Francisco Argonaut assumes full responsibility for the truthfulness of what It calls a characteristic anecdote. A number of years ago Schley was- In command of one of the old navy ships that was fitting out at the Brooklyn navy yard for a foreign cruise. A few days be fore Schley';, ship was to sail a big party of Brooklyn Sunday school teachers vis ited the ship In a body. The crew were engaged In stowing and breaking out stores. On the main deck stood a big hogshead packed full of beer bottles that had been emptied. As the bottles stuck out of the packing straw ite re was no way of telling whether they were filled or empty. The Sunday school teachers held a conference over that hogshead and de termined to send an emissary to the skip per about It. Schley received tho emis sary In his cabin. "Sir," sdtd the messenger, "it is re grettable to observe the huge quantity of liquid intoxicants your vessel Is re ceiving." "How's that?" Inquired Schley. The emissary told about the enormous hogshead filled 1th beer bottles. "It is simply shocking," exclaimed Schley. "i'H attend to the matter at once. Bo'sun's mate." called out Schley, as soon as he reached the main deck, end me a few hands at once." The hands were aft Instantly. "Rig a tackle and dump that hogshead over the side and at the bottom. The Sun lay scnooi teachers looked on approvingly, and when the hogshead had disappeared they Hocked round Schley and told him what a fine, noble example he was set ting. Schley took it all with becoming modesty. For -the fun he had out of it he paid a couple of dollars Into the wardroom mes, for the. loss of the empty bottles, which should have been returned to the bottler. A STKAY MOON". It Im Snid to IJc- II("imiinUi1c for thi l'r-Mtiit Wratlier. (From the Xpw York ?un.) "Dr. Geo. Waltemath, from Hamburg, Germany, son of an American citizen from California," Is still hunting for a stray moon. It should cross the sun. he says, on or about July 31, or in the first days of August, and will not take- longer than an Jiour and live minutes for its transit across the sun's surface. The course of the moon will be from left to right and from bottom to top of the sun's disc. The moon, which In his German circular Dr, Waltemath calls the third moon, was observed by Postdlrektor Zlegler of Greifswald on February 4. In a separate slip printed In English he says: The second moon was seen before the sun on February 5 at Wiesbaden, Germanv. and by three German olllcers in China. It will be seen again on or about July CO. a few days sooner or later, like a dark round spot crossing- the sun. Look out for .this rare slghtl" Professional as tronomers have expressed doubts as to the correctness of these observations, but for their skepticism Dr. Waltemath feels only contempf. His moon runs runs from east to west. In a direction contrary to that of the bright maun, nnd Ir nnnro fa i-o- j centric. It is a real weather and magnet moon, ana whenever it is about to cross the earth's course It disturbs the atmos phere and surface of the earth, producing storms, rain, tempests, magnetic devia tions and earthquakes, which are of course much stronger when the moon comes closer to the earth. This has been the case for more than half a year and probably accounts for the mild winter and the moisture of the last few months. The Importance of finding out where it is, therefore, is self-evident. Any one who stumbles upon this second or third moon is requested to communi cate the fact to Dr. Waltemath. He will do well to have his evidence corrob orated by as many other persons as ho can. for the astronomers do not believe in the new moon, and will work havoc wlfVi 1i!c rpnntntinn ffr wt Mtt- 1 """' A3IUSE31E.NTS.
