Marries Millionaire Miner "Nig- ger Jim" Dougherty, TOPEKA, KAN,, Jan. 25.—Miss Emma Kelley, the Kansas girl who recently went to the Klondike to represent a syndicate of Chicago capitalists, is now the wife of James W. Dougherty ("Nigger Jim"), the millionaire miner, and in company with her husband is en route to the United States. Miss Kelley's parents live in this city, and from a letter received to-day from M. S. Evans, of Hiawatha, who recently returned from Dawson, learned the particulars of Miss Kelley's marriage to the millionaire. Mr. Dougherty is on route to Ottawa to secure from the Canadian government a modification of the mining laws.
