Number 21S

Percy Owen (above), federal pro-
hibition director in Illinois;aand, his
predecessor, Ralph Stone and four
others are under indictment in Chi-
cago, following a year's probe of an
alleged sacramental wine'scandal in
which the graft is estimated to have
exceeded $1,040,0000. All of the ac-
cused deny the charges.
ATURALISTS RETURN
FROM THE SOUTH SEAS
(-By The Associated Press)
an Francisco, Aug. 1.-The a,
S. S. Ortolan, a minesweeper detaile
by Secretary Wilbur for temporary
duty with the California Academy of
Sciences, has returned here from a
trip of several 'months to islands off
the west coast of Mexico, whither it
took a party of scientists. The expe-
dition brought, back many rare speci-
mxens of birds, plants, fishes, reptiles,
fossils and insects for .the museum of
the, academy.
The party, in charge of Dr. G. Dal-
las Hanna, curator of palentology in
the, "acadmny, sailed April 15, bound
particularly for the little known Rev-
illagigedo islands, 400 miles west of
the Mexican mainland.
Make Fish Collection
"One of the most striking collec-'
tions made," related Dr. Hanna, "was
of fishes about the coral reefs of these
Islands. Here abound great numbers
of gaudy and grotesque species show-
ing' close relationship to the fishes of
Hawaii. These species are slow swim-
"ming; and persistently live in shal-
low waters. The question for the ich
thyologists to answer is how did they
get where they are. Vast abyssmal
depths separate the Revillagigedo is-
lands from all other known land Can
it be,,that these volcanic peaks are the
above-water remnants of a former
continent or archipelago now lost be-
neath the waves?
Find "Botanists' 'Paradise"
"The deep canyons of Socorro Is-
land are heavily forested and here we
fotnd a veritable botanists' paradise
untouched by human hands. Strange
trees,' flowers, vines and shrubs were
on every side. Among the trees was
one which immediately attracted ou
attention because of the large number
of parrots and other birds which were
feeding on the fruit. Our Me'xican
companions informed us that they
knew of no similar fruit in Mexico
and thus far it has not been learned
even to what family it belongs. It
is about the size, shape and color of a
ripe olive but there the similarity
ceases, because the pulp is sweet and
delicious. It was very useful to us
on some of our long journeys over-
lahd, where all food and water "had to
be carried on. our backs.
Region Inhabited By Whales
"We found the region about the Re-
villagigedo islands inhabited by many
whales, mothers and young, just as
our fathers did in the early days of
whaling. They called the place the
Cow Pasture for that reason.
"A spring of fresh water was re-
located on Socorro island and marked
in such a way that henceforth it can
be readily found. This, the only fresh
water within hundreds of miles, was
first -found by Colonel Grayson, a Cal-
ifornia pioneer who was wrecked on
the island in 1869. While getting his
scant supply of water ashore from his
stranded vessel his Mexican boy no-
ticed a small bird drinking from

a tide pool. Investigation showed a
large spring of excellent water flow-
ing out of a lava wall below high tide
line, and the'lives of his entire party
were saved thereby. Although he de-
scribed the location of the spring and'
printed it in 1872,amanypeople who
searched for it after that failed to
