EUCALYPTUS TREES AS
ANTI-MALARIAL AGENTS
I/Are Being Planted in Gvjba as an Experi
ment to Jest Their HealtKgiVing
Qualities.
*• HAVANA, Aug. 27. — Owing to frequent recommendations to Governor #
. -fc General Brooke of the eucalyptus tree as an anti-malarial agent, some ■¥■
* investigations into the subject have been carried on under his orders. At- -fc
* tentlon has been called to the success obtained in cultivating the tree in ♦
the vast Campagna dl Roma, Italy, where eucalyptus is now recognized "*
! as rendering the whole territory much less unhealthy. The City of Mcx- *
i leo is cited as another instance, where the Vigo canal, the Boating gar-
; .fc dens and other malarial districts are now well stocked with young trees,
; -fc with the results that the places which -were once marshy and unh-alth- -fc
■fc ful, have been rendered dry and inocuous. -fc
I "fc One recommendation says that the camp of the British troops in -fc
* Jamaica, which was formerly malarial, has been planted with eucalyp- "fetus,
* * tvs, the outcome already being a steady disappearance of marshy spots. *
ijr The tree, which absorbs the moisture, grows very rapidly, often ten feet "\
_^ ln a year. The wood is valuable and honey bees seek the flowers. The
honey, it is said, contains important medicinal properties.
!-H The Tree Department at Santiago de Cuba, now knowing of the investi- fc
■ -fc gations in progress under General Brooke's direction, recently made a re- -fc
i "fc quest for several thousand eucalyptus slips, the requisition being strongly -fc
'"* Indorsed by General Leonard Wood. The officials in charge of the yellow "fc
"* fever hospital planted several slips some months ago and these are now *
* thriving. It is believed that great good will result from the investiga- *
»j tions.
' -^ Several years ago experiments with the eucalyptus tree were tried +__
fc here, the result being satisfactory for the first four years, after which, lt fc
-fc is said, the trees died, but the consensus of opinion among the medical fc
-fc authorities is favorable to a repetition of the experiment, which General -fc
■* Brooke will probably attempt at an early date on a large scale. fc

NEW YORK. Aug. 27.— 1t is learned on
excellent authority that the Northern Pa-
cific Railway Company some time ago dis-
posed of its entire holdings of Oregon
- Railway and Navigation Company stock
to a banking house in this city which Is
closely identified with Union Pacific in-
terest?: The Oregon Short Line, which
is controlled by the Union Pacific, is the
(.wner of practically all the common stock
of the Railway and Navigation Company.
The controlling interests in the preferred
ftock of the latter corporation nas been
owned jointly by the Cnion Pacific. North-
crn Pacific and Great Northern, the hold-
ings of the last two being equal in amount
but the Union Pacific holdings being much
larger than those of either of the others.
By the transfer of the Northern Pa-
cific's interest, it is understood, the Union
Pacific secures control of the preferred
■stock of the Oregon Railway and Navi
gation Company, the common stock of
w hich it already controlled through its re-
lation with the Oregon Short Line.

Special Dispatch tn The Call.
TACOMA, Aug. 27.— A representative of
a Boston syndicate has just closed one of
the largest mining deals ever perfected in
the West;
The syndicate named, with a capital of
$3,500,030, becomes the owner of -22
placer mining claims in the Cover d'Alene
distil In Idaho. The claims are all lo
cated In Shoshone County along Prichard
and Eagle creeks and within the dis
trict where the recent miners' troubles
have attracted world wide attention.
Hiiliard and his associates have been
successful in securing several patented
claims held by operators and speculators
in and about Tacoma. The purchase of
these claims gives th, company control
of about 75 per cent of theiplacer diggings
In Idaho. The total investment is said to
be about $1,500
Arrangements are being perfected to
equip the property with a (750,000 dredg
ing and hydraulic plant. The most im
proved machinery and the latest methods
known to science will be employed in the
full development of all the properties.
Th, practical part of the work will be
under the management of B. Stanley
Revatt, a mining engineer who has long
been connected with the North American
sold Dredging Company of Colorado -and
the Continental Gold Dredging Company
n California. It was largely through his
recommendations, made after an ex
amination of Coeur d'Alene in .833 that
:he new company was formed and con
solidation made possible. For years these
ilaeer- mines were successfully worked,
md have been producing gold ever since.
The beginning of the new consolidation
was several months ago. when Hiiliard
aegan quietly to buy claims on Prichard
'rt-ek from Raven to the mouth of the
?reek. and on Eagle Creek. The whole of
this district, about twenty-three miles in
length, has been purchased and turned
over to the Boston syndicate.

Captain English Dead
SANTA CRUZ. Aug. 27. — Alexander
English died suddenly last night at his
home in Blackburn Gulch. In the early
days he was a sea captain and amassed
a considerable fortune. He was a native
of Scotland and 87 years of age. The
time for the funeral has not been set,
but will be as late as possible, as Mr.
English always had a horror of being
buried alive.
Killed by a Train.
BAKERSFIELD, Aug. 27.-The body of
James Gilman, a Southern Paciflc section
boss, was found beside the Valley road
track this morning with the head crashed.
It looks as though he walked from the
Southern Pacific yard and lay down beside
the Valley road, and rested his head on
the track for a pillow. It Is claimed he
was drinking last night. He was 60 years
of age and an old employe of the road.
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, MONDAY, AUGUST 28, 1899.
CRUISER BOSTON, SCARRED AND BLACKENED BY
MONTHS OF WAR
GENTLY tugging at the anchor that
holds her in her place amid the
placid waters of the bay rides a yes-
sel that has made history and helped
o change the map of the world. It is the
cruiser Boston, the vessel that opened the
May Hay festivities which signalized the
commencement of American power In the
Philippines. It is nearly four years now
since she was last seen in this harbor, and
she has greatly changed since then. When
she was here before she appeared to the
beholder as one of the most beautiful of
our modern ships of war, and she fairly
glistened with the paint and polish which
had been bestowed upon her to make her
look at her very best; and the square rig
ging which she carried aloft brought back
to mind the days when sailors fought
yardarm to yardarm with their enemies.
To-day, battered and soiled, she re
turned shorn of the delicate tracery of top
hamper and running gear— a scarred old
veteran, soiled and ugly, but more be
loved than ever by the country whose flag
she flies.
Yesterday tugs were plying to and fro
from early morning until way into the
afternon carrying the great crowds of
visitors anxious to look at the guns that
had sent Montijo's ships to the bottom of
Manila Bay. The visitors were cordially
received by the men on board, and the
bluejackets seemed just as anxious to ex
hibit all there was of Interest as their
visitors were to behold and listen to the
stories of how the battle was won.
The objects which were lingered over
The objects which were lingered over
longest were the patches covering the
spots where Spanish shells had torn their
way through. There were live such places
altogether, one on the foremast, where a
shell had struck and then plunged onward
to explode over the side; one in the side.

The police are hopeful of connecting
Jack Casey, the Australian crook, with
the robbery of the specie room of the
j steamer Alameda.
Shortly after his arrest Saturday night
Detectives Gibson. Ellis and Sullivan.
who took him into custody, questioned
: him, but as he seemed dazed from the
effects of an overindulgence in liquor,
they decided to allow him to become
sober before putting him through the
! "sweating" process.
Yesterday morning he was taken before
Chief Lees and closely questioned. Casey
emphatically denied that he had a hand
in the Alameda robbery. He claimed he
! was in San Francisco at the time and
; that he did not leave the city until after
! tlie robbery was made public.
Casey also denied any participation in
the diabolical scheme to murder Million
i aire Green.
"If Howard put up the Job," he re
; marked with considerable emphasis, "I
know nothing about it. Howard, it is
I true, was my friend and I still regard
I him as such. So far as his dealings with
j Green were concerned I know nothing
I about them, as Howard was strangely
I uncommunicative even to his warmest
friends."
Casey, when asked about his partner,
I "Jimmie" Kelly, who is also suspected of
I being one of the Alameda robbers, de
! clared he had heard Kelly had died in
j New Orleans a short time ago. He ad
; mitted that after tae robbery was made
I known, thinking they were suspected, he
! and Kelly went East. He left i\.elly. so
he claimed, in New York, but expected to
! join him in New Orleans. On learning of
! Kelly's alleged death, he declared, he re
i turned to this city, intending to inform
the police that Kelly had "gone to a
higher court," as he expressed it.
Notwithstanding his statement the po
| lice are morally certain that Casey and
! Kelly, on learning that the detectives
were after them in connection with the
Alameda robbery, went to Howard and
were advised by him to leave the city.
From a reliable source the police have
learned that both Casey and Kelly were
in New Orleans and thinking tuat they
were being watched they agreed to sep
arate. Before leaving his companion in
crime Kelly concocted the scheme where-
by Casey was to circulate the story that
he was occupying six feet of earth in an
unmarked grave.
Casey returned to this city last Thurs-
day, but learning that the police were hot
on his trail he went into hiding. Late
Saturday night he ventured out and get-
ting gloriously full, he was picked up by
the detectives and taken to police head-
quarters.
The police think Kelly is also in this
■city, and every effort is being made to And
him. *;.*■• .

at the carriers' national convention, to be
held here next week.
He says that unless the mistake is rec
tified the big labor day parade is likely
to be disrupted, as the 1700 carriers from

for the decorations. _

Secret Work of the Com-

Special Dispatch to The Call.
CHICAGO, Aug. 28.— special to
I the Tribune from Washington says: In
I spite of the apparent abandonment of
■ the negotiations with Canada, it is
j learned on the authority of an official
whose connection with the boundary
j question has been constant and confi
-1 dential that a secret agreement had
i been reached, as the result of which a
: temporary arrangement will be ac
\ complished before Congress meets in
! December.
As the result of negotiations conduct
ed in the utmost secrecy assurances
have been given the American Com
missioners, it is said, that if they will
allow matters to rest until after the
: Canadian elections in October a tempo
: rary agreement will be readily reached.
! It is suggested that the basis of the
I new modus Vivendi has been sketched
out and practically agreed upon by
! the American and Canadian Commis
sioners.
This temporary arrangement, or
! modus Vivendi, will provide, first, that
j the Canadians shall have the use of a
port on the Lynn Canal, Pyramid Har
bor being the most likely one. The ar
rangement will provide, however, by
means of a special protocol, a distinct
declaration that this temporary occu
pation of a port on the Lynn Canal by
British customs officers shall in no way
affect the final settlement of the bound-
ary question, but both British and
American interests and claims will be
fully reserved. The use of the port is
to be temporary until the question of
ownership of the disputed strip is final-
ly settled to the satisfaction of both
countries.
Under this temporary agreement also
Canadian white pine lumber, not dress
ed, tongued or grooved, but Including

AMERICAN ON TRIAL
FOR MURDER IN JAPAN
YOKOHAMA. Aug. 11, via Victoria, B.
C. , Aug. 27.— The foreign community here
is watching with eager interest the first
murder trial of a foreigner in the Jap-
anese courts. Though there is no doubt
of the guilt of the accused; an American
named Miller, curiosity is greatly
strengthened by the opportunity thus
early given to note the rulings of the
Judge and the method of procedure. The
conduct of the trial has been exceedingly
dignified and fair, and in the opinion of a
leading foreign barrister will prove to be
far more efficient in securing a just ver
dict than could be possible under -the old
system. The promptness with which the
accused was brought to the bar and the
entire absence of any disposition to delay
the proceedings excites favorable com
ment and goes far toward allaying for
eign fears of Oriental dllatoriness.
Another assurance to the same effect
was given in the speedy trial and acquit
tal of the engineer of the United States
transport Sherman, arrested for larceny.
This case is notable as being the solitary
instance of police interference with any
one connected with the .American troops
passing through here. Five thousand
nave now come and gone, roaming through
the streets of Yokohama and Tokio for
an average of two days without causing a
ripple of disturbance.

Employer.
The police have been asked to find
I "Billy" McNess, who is wanted for the
j alleged embezzlement of about UOOO be
longing to Van Vliet, the pawnbroker, at
9 Grant avenue. McNess was a trusted
employe, and frequently handled large
sums of money belonging to the pawn
broker.
Some time ago he became infatuated
with a young woman whom he met at
the People's Palace and proposed
marriage to her. She readily accepted
the offer, but on account of the opposi
tion manifested by her parents, it was
agreed between them that they should
elope.
As 'McNess did not have the necessary
cash, it is claimed, he helped himself to
the funds "of his employer and then de-
parted with his sweetheart for Seattle.
As the girl insisted that they should be
married, McNess took her before a
Seattle Justice of the Peace, where they
were made man and wife.
Learning that Van Vliet has enlisted
the secvices of the police in apprehending
his former clerk, McNess, evidently fear-
ing arrest, went to Denver, but through
a letter which he wrote to a friend in
this city, the police located him and It is
expected that an officer will be sent to
bring him back.
McNess was a familiar figure on Market
street and was looked upon as a model
young man.
Louis Van Vliet is loth to communicate
anything in regard to the alleged defalca
tion .of his trusted clerk. He admitted
the robbery, but stated that he must see
his brother before giving any further in
formation.
"Did McNess rob you of $1000?" he was
asked last night. .
"No, not that much," he replied.
Van Vliet said he could not tell the
exact amount he had lost without con-
sulting his books. He stated that he had
never suspected that there was anything
wrong with McNess, but had trusted him
absolutely until his defalcation. He
would make no further statement con-
cerning the affair.
