How Will Floyd and Party are Prospering. Were at Taldes Pas', Twenty-third i Alasfca, on >f April, tbe Bound fer the Headwaters of Copper Rirer—Trials of the Trip. Valdes Pass, Alisfca, April 23, '98. Editors Pharos:—We left the Valencia just a month ago today and pitched our first camp In a grove of cotton wood, about half a mile from the beach. We were In company with about "00 more people,' making Ifc quite a city of tents. Boats are coming In every day, hue they are all small, carrying from 100 to 150 people. The Valencia arrived again on April 20, with 125 passengers and 40 soldiers, The soldiers are to survey a route to Dawson, so it is reported. The next camp that we moved to was at Glacier City, fire miles from the beach. Ws are now camping on top of the third bench of the glacier, eight miles from the beach and about 900 feet above ssa level. We wlil move from here to the foot of the summit of the glacier, about April 25. We will then De about 19 miles from where we left the boat, and have a five mile climb to the summit, when the hardest part of outwork will be over. Pass is 1,900 The summit of Valdes feet above sea level. We will still have about 100 miles to go before reaching copper river. Most of the gold hunters are bound for tbe headwaters of Copper river, but they can't make it before next winter. You don't hear the stories of gold you read of in the papers bacfc In the states, still everyone going there believe they are going to find something. Quite a number of people are going back on account ot the bare- work. Some work too hard and break down. Those having some sort ot beast to help them are In luck, as they can make big money hauling for others. Dogs head the list In numbers, while horses, donkeys and goats come next In order. All kinds of big prices are asked. Western horses sell from «125 to «400, and hard to get at that price. There were quite a number of donkeys brought in by the last boat, but the owner would set no prise on them I suppose he will use them In hauling goods, as there Is more money In that than in looking for gold. Hay commands fancy prices, as a bale costs $5. Sugar sells for 1" cents a pound; flour 14 for 50 pound sack; wood upon the glacier 10 cents a pound. Wood has to be hauled up on the glacier by everyone coming this way, unless they have an oil stove and plenty of oil. An oil stove will save much time and labor, as you have to haul wood from five to eight miles over some very steep benches. The timber lice on the other aide Is ten miles from the summit. We had to combine with two other parties in hauling our goods over the benches, mating twenty men in all. We used a block and tacfcle and rln that way could put on about 1,000 pounds on a sled, where one man pulling his sled can only haul 100 pounds. On account of so many people going this way part had to haul their goods up at night, we worked two nights getting the three benches. We were lucky enough to see the northern lights, the grandest sight I ever witnessed. With snow and ice everywhere you] look it is hard to believe that flowers are in bloom ^ere, and that large, beautiful butterflies give our camp a visit every day, but such are the facts. A hunter brought from the mountainside a handful of the flowers. They went fast while they lasted and will find their way to the states, pressed In the letters.as proof that this country Is not as bleak and barren as reported. Well I will finish, hoping the next time you hear from me I will be on Copper river. W. R. FLOYD. Improved Train Service.

There are more than 1,200 islands in the Philippine archipelago, but only nine of them are of any considerable size, the others being little more than bare volcanic rocks. They have a population of betvreen 7,000,000 and 8,000,000 inhabitants. Luzon, the largest of the Philippine group, has an area of 41,121 square miles, being about as large as Cuba, and it has a population of over 4,500,000. Manilla, the capital of Luzon and of tbe whole Philippine archipelago, is situated at the mouth of tbe river Pasig, •which empties into tha bay of Manilla. Including its suburbs it has a population of 175,000, of -which about 5,000 are Spaniards, 12,000 are Creoles, or Spanish of mixed caste, and tbe remainder are mainly Tagal Malays, mestizos, Chinese and Mohammedans from India, with a fuw European foreigners. The Philippines are the most northerly division of the great Indian archipelago. The bay of Manilla has been called the finest commercial harbor in the world. It is 120 miles around it, and the water over much of its inclosed area is 300 feet deep. All the navies in the -world might anchor in the bay at the same time and have room to spare. After entering Manilla bay a vessel still has 28 miles to sail to reach the city. In the Philippines the rainy season lasts from May to November. The heaviest rains fall in July. During the wet monsoons—the rainy season—the island of Luzon is subject to typhoons which often cause great destruction to tbe shipping and to property inshore. Like Havana, the Philippines' capital city is famous for its cigars. The Manilla cheroot, highly appreciated in the East Indies and in Europe, is far milder than the heavy Cuban cigars. Malays of the Tagal and the Bisayan tribes form the bulk of the population of the Philippines. The aboriginal inhabitants, a dark people, called by the Spaniards Negritos, live in the mountainous parts of the islands. Tbe Philippines were discovered by Fernando Magalhaens (Magellan) in 1521. He -was killed on one of tbe islands. Wet gun cotton, 220 pounds, is tbe explosive material used in tbe United States pattern of Whitehead torpedo. Up to 1851 pirates infested the Philippine -waters. At that date a Spanish expedition against the island of Sulu put an end to their depredations. The Spanish laws for the Indian are simple—and Spanish. Every male inhabitant raust pay a personal tax and give 40 days' labor annually to the public works department. Besides this, in Luzon tbe coolies must cultivate tobacco for the government or pay a money equivalent. A leading production in the Philippines is hemp. Manilla, as a term for rope, is in use the world over -wherever vessels sail. It is probable that balloons will be used effectively by our troops in the conflict with Spain. Volcanoes are numerous and active in Luzon and other islands. The city of Albay was destroyed in 1814 by aa eruption from Mount Mayon. lood's Pills Should be in every family medicine chest and every traveller's grip.

Hi Henry's minstrels plaved to a large and appreciative audience at Dolan's last night, Mr. Henry has the largess anfl best minstrel band and orchestra that has ever visited Logansport. The first part setting was grand. Chief among the entertainers are Oscar Miehaells and C. A. Skelcher, vocalists; Arthur Demlng and Dan Allmon, comedians. Mr. Michaelis was given a hearty greeting by the audience. He won his reputation as a singer while a citizen of Logansaort. Arthur Deming is without a doubt one of the best comedians in his class. Harry Lelghton, who was iatroduced as "the phenomenal alto," <s a frost. Griffin and Cowper are splendid buck and wing dancers. The musical act of Locke and Allmon is good. The after piece, "On the Klondyke," contains some funny features. The company went from here to Pern. PRIZES AND PRIZE COURTS. How the Spoils of » Captured Enemy's Ship Are Apportioned. Any ship of the enemy may be made a prize on the high seas, even though it belongs to private citizens. The question of the legality of prizes taken is settled by a specially organized prize court. The prize court now in session at Key West is composed of three judgns appointed by the president. The sentence of the prize court is conclusive upon all the world. The original owners of a prize seized and condemned -have no appeal from its decisions. ~-.-M=ufc^ •: '- "• One-half of the value of all prizes captured by the navy goes to the government. One-twentieth of one-half the value oJ all prizes captured goes to the commander of the fleet to which the captora belong.

The up to date cycles seen thus far indicate that tbe brighter the color the more popular tha machine this year. Dealers say tbe call for the somber black colored machine is greatly exceeded by tbe demand for gayer colors. Tbe most popular hues of those asked for are bright yellow and olive green. The vermilion tinted -wheel is not so much in evidence as the yellow, green or maroon or nickel. The last named colors seem to predominate this year, and only tbe mild cyclist who is afraid of attracting attention will stick to the quiet black frame model.—New York World, +++«•»•••••«••••»»•••••»»* > * DYSPEPSIA, Heartburn, Gastritis and all Stomach Disorders positively cured.
