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
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.

The private property of foreign sover

An Italian Ssirrrron Deprives Him f

(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.

Tlioir lH'nerliiiiim nml History Since
Tliclr Discovery ly JIukcIIuji.
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." In this war of extermination we become

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

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

(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
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
