it that , the pleasure trip, which was
originally scheduled to occupy more
than two years, abruptly terminated In
Vnknhimi in the early Dart of this
year by reason of a row on board the
vessel. There are hints also of scandal.
While In Pacific waters the alleged
row, which Is said to have been only
one of a series of quarrels, took place,
and according to one of the crew wordy
warfares; that cams from the quarter
deck, kept the ship in a turmoil. The
climax resulted when the vessel touched
at Yokohama, where It Is stated the
party broke up and sailed for home via
Pacific Mall steamers.

along the apex of the hill. At this
contact frequent blowouts of andeelte
occur, which when crosscut from the
present level will prove the permanent
mineral-bearing cone. The shaft has
been sunk in the rhyollte (foot wall
country rock), in which numerous
trlngers of ore have been encountered,
carrying gold values ranging from
$1.80 to $10. Z9 per ton. These stringers
are all dipping toward the contact,
which indicates the presence of a large
and highly mtnerallz.d ore body at
the contact of the two formations
(rhyollte and quartxlte). The presence
of andeslte at the contact, together
with the distinct regularity of the for
mation, demonstrates the fact that this
property is situated in the same geo
logical horlson as Tonopah and Gold
field; in fact, the character of the for
mation is identically like Tonopah and
the most highly mineralized portion of
the Goldfleld district. The trend of the
formation is northerly, dipping at an
angle of 80 degress to the west.
The property is being developed
through a vertical shaft which Is now
145 feet in depth, from which a cross
cut is now being run westerly toward
