VKIAH, Nov. 27.— Osborne Deigan, one
of the men who immortalized themselves
with Lieutenant Hobson by sinking the
collier I*errimac in the entrance to the
harbor of Santiago, with the object of
penning in the Spanish fleet, is an in
mate of the Ukiah Hospiial for the In
sane. He was brought to this city sev
eral days agot.
Deigan was recently attached to the
Mare Island navy-yard and given com
mand of the Vigilant. He served but a
day or two, when he was ordered upon
the sick list. After a serious illness his
mind was found to be affected, with the
result that he was committed to the asy
lum. It is believed that the young naval
hero's stay in the hospital will be only
Delgan was a sailor on one of the ves
sels of the American fleet off Santiago
at the time volunteers were called for to
accompany Lieu tenant Hobson' on the
mission that apparently meant death
lor that brave young man and all who
accompanied him. He was eager to go
with Hobson, and was one of the first
men selected. Following the sinking of
the Merrimac, the capture of the daring
party o f Americans and their release from
a Spanish prison, President McKinley was
anxious to reward each of the young he
roes. Deigan was offered a cadetship in
the Naval Academy at Annapolis, but it
was found that he was ineligible. Then
he was appointed a boatswain in the
United States navy. The young officer
was personally complimented by Presi
dent McKinley for his g-allantry." His ap
pointment as a warrant officer was made
on April 5 of this year.

BRITISH SHIP GLAUCUS LOSES
MAN OVERBOARD IN MIDOCEAN
Boat Is Manned and Lowered in Seven Minutes, but Crew Fails
to Save Life of the .Unfortunate — Curacao Arrives From
Mexican Ports — Schooner Alexander Fails to Reach Fort Bragg
BRITISH SHIP GLAUCUS WHICH ARRIVED FROM ANTWERP YESTERDAY, MAKING THE BEST TIME OP
THE SEASON: SHE MADE THE RUN IN 129 DAYS, AND HER CAPTAIN SAYS HE WOULD HAVE BROK
EN THE RECORD HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR THE FOG.
AMONG the vessels arriving yester
day were the Pacific Coast
Steamship Company's Curacao
from Mexican ports, the schoon
er Alexander, that left here on
the 12th inst. for Fort Bragg, and the
British ship Glaucus, from Antwerp. The
latter made almost a record run, covering
the distance in 129 days. This is the best
run of the season, and has not been
beaten in years.
The Glaucus had an uneventful run,
save for the loss of one of the crew. The
accident occurred on July 31, last, when
the ship was in latitude 40 degrees north,
longitude 15 degrees west. L. Eriksen
fell overboard and, in spite of every ef
fort to save him, he was drowned. The
ship was hove to and a boat lowered in
seven minutes, but when it reached the
spot where the man was last seen all
that was left was his hat and a few bub
bles. He had gone down just as help was
The Glaucus comes into port in first
class trim and after discharging will load
wheat for Europe.
Mexican Mail Boat Arrives.
The Curacao arrived from llexican
ports last night. She did not bring a
large passenger list, but among her cargo
was a lot of concentrates and bullion,
valued at more than a quarter of a mil
lion dollars. Those who came up on the
vessel were: Mrs. C. H. Ramirez, Miles
E. Stratton, F. W. Albrighton, Carlos S.
de la Toba, Carmen Jofre, Adelaida Jofre,
Antonio Perez, Francisco Arias and two
children, Estefa Bustamante. Asencion

The Curacao left the United States
training ship Alert in Magdalena Bay.
She was to leave that port for La Pas
on December 1. She will coal at the lat
ter place and then proceed to San Diego,
arriving about December 18.
- The Alexander Is Safe.
The four-masted schooner Alexander,
which was off port Tuesday night, sailed
in yesterday. She left here In tow of the
steam schooner National City for Fort
Bragg, and when off her (destination was
anchored because there was not enough
room in the harbor for her. The National
City went in and leaded, but during the
night a gale came up and the Alexander
had to slip her anchor and put to sea.
Captain Zahn says he was driven away
off shore and then beat his way back,
but ag there was no tug to help him he
could not make his way into the harbor
at Fort Bragg. He accordingly stood
away for San Francisco and made port
yesterday mojrning. At no time was the
schooner' in any danger, and she is now
getting ready to make a second attempt
to reach Fort Bragg in tow of the Na
tional City. Both vesels will sail to
Accident on Ocean Wave.
The Santa Fe's ferry steamer Ocean
Wave will have to be laid up
for repairs. On the 8 a. m.
trip yesterday one of the cylinder
heads blew out and one of the deck
hands was slightly scalded by the escap
ing steam. The vessel's engines were
rendered useless, but the tugr Reliance
towed her to and from Point Richmond
during the day, so that there was no de
lay and no inconvenience. To-day the
Amador will take up the running until
the Ocean Wave is repaired.
Water Front Notes.
The Harbor Commissioners held a short
session yesterday and awarded the con
tract to Healy, Tibbitts & Co. for the re
piling and repairing of the north side of
Folsom street wharf No. 2. The firm's
lvd was J2655. Bids for constructing a
shed over Union street wharf will be
opened December 11.
Edward Brown asserts that he was
robbed on the water front Tuesday night.
Two men, so he says, knocked him down
and rifled his pockets of $7. He reported
the occurrence to Officers McCormack
and Dower, but as he was under the in
fluence of liquor not much credence was
placed in his story. The police are inves
tigating the matter, however.
Reinsurance on the bark Prince Albert
was advanced -to 40 per cent yesterday.
The tug Monarch picked up a two and
one-half ton anchor off Black Point yes
terday. It had been located by some
wreckers and is deemed a good find.

• Cannot Withdraw Resignations.
City Attorney Lane filed an opinion yes
terday with the Police Commissioners ad
vising that he knows of no ground what
ever upon which permission could at thi3
time be given to an ex-officer to with
draw a resignation accepted by their pre
decessors in office. Lane says a member
of the force upon presenting his resigna
tion, and the same being accepted, ceases
to be a member of the department, and
the Police Board has no power to annul
th« acceptance or permit the withdrawal
of the resignation, which would be tanta
mount to reinstatement on the force.
There is no question as to the power of
their predecessors, to accept a resigna
tion from the department, and such ac
ceptance must be regarded as final.

License on Automobile Operators.
The Board of Works recommended yes
terday to the Supervisors that no exami
nation or license be required of the ope
rators of any class of automobiles. The
board takes the stand that in examining
and licensing the operators the city, in
a measure, would take upon itself the
responsibility of insuring the fitness of
the licensee, thereby rendering itself to a
certain extent responsible for his or her
conduct; while placing an operator on
the same basis as any driver puts such
responsibility where it belongs and makes
the operator more careful, both of his
vehicle and of the safety of others.

In "Herpicide" the New Scientific and
; : Successful Dandruff Treatment.
- Have you dandruff? Then you have
a "contagious parasite disease, unpleas-
ant, unhealthy and one that will event-
j ually l«ad to baldness. To cure It you
] must destroy the parasite that eats at
the root of the hair. The only prepara-
tion for destroying these germs is New-
bro's Herpicide. Charles Klein of Lar-
amie, Wyo., says: "Herpicide allayed
; the itching, cured the dandruff and
stopped my hair's falling out; and it is
bringing a new crop of hair." Herpicide
is free from grease or dangerous drugs,
and makes hair glossy and soft as silk.
i One bottle will convince you of Its merits.
