Much of Negros has been clothed with a similar mantle. On a small scale, also, off the coasts of these islands, and particularly about...

Mr. Karuth, who is president of the Philippines Mineral Syndicate (Limited), says in the letter to Ambassador Hay accompanying the pamphlet: " These notes were written in 1894. Since then the exploratory work under my direction has been carried on as vigorously as circumstances permitted.
