' Ind'anapolis, May 24.—The state mili- tmrr Authorities find a cumbersome and lone task before them In adjusting the tartness affairs connected with bringing the Indiana National Guard to this city •jld maintaining: the troops until they were mustered into the federal service. About the only part which has been accomplished Is that of paying: the troops out of the state treasury. The treasurer of state says this expenses amounts to a total of 581,156.06. These figures, however, rio'not include the pay ot men who came to the city from jnany points in the state to enlist and •who failed in their federal examinations. As soon as it »'as known what men had failed to pass, they were sent home at state expense. Stiitti Will He He!mbursi>il. There were several hundred of Vhese recruits and they want their money, •white Paymaster W. T. Durbin finds that there will be much work and time required to square accounts with them. It is probable that three months may be required to get these accounts set- tl*d, and in the end about $100,000 will tave been taken from the state treasury to pay off the officers and men who •niwered the governor's call for troops. Congress wil!, however, reimburse the •tat« this expense. To meet the pay tolls the state authorities took money •from what is known as the Indiana militia fund. There was not enoug-h money on hand for the purpose, and after an opinion was given by Attorney General Ketcham the treasurer took the additional money needed from the general fund. Total Will Be About $300,000. There aro clothing bills to meet, camp *quipment to be paid for, and other expenses which will swell the total to per- 3hap3 $130,000. The grocers and others liave not submitted their accounts to the state, and it will be several weeks before all of these affairs are closed. The expenses, other than the pay of the troops, will be added to the claim of the state, which will be sent to congress, and it may be a year before the money gets back to the state treasury. It is estimated that the cost to Indiana «nd the United States in centralizing the volunteers from this state, feeding and clothing them and transporting them to their camps, after having been mustered into the regular service, will reach a total of more than $300,000. BETRAYED BY EIS FRIEND. Who \Vas Afraid of Murder at the Hands of a TVoman Slayer. Terre Haute, Ind., May 24.—Policeman Dan Mullen will ask for the $1,000 re- jr&rcl offered for the capture of the murderer of Mrs. Eliza Siultz, near Portland, Ind., in February. Sam Marshall, the man just arrested by the Pinkertons, was located by Mullen, who told the sheriff at Portland, and he in turn came here and after investigation sent the detectives to make the arrest. The »lght before the tragedy Sam Marshall, then a laborer in the strawboard mill at Anderson, asked a friend for the loan of $1.50. saying he was going to "turn a trick" by which they would get a good deal of money. Two days later Marshall reappeared In Anderson, with much money. Then came the news of the murder and robbery at the Stulfs toome. The amount taken is said to have teen several thousand dollars. A young man named Lafollette was »n(Jer suspicion, but Marshall was not, *xcept to the friend who made him the loan and who advised him to leave Anderson. He did and came to Terre Haute, where he represented himself to be from the western mining country. and for a few weeks he was the high roller of the "tenderloin" district. The friend to whom he had virtually confessed having been connected with the crime was afraid he would kill him because of his knowledge, and this friend told Policeman Mullen of the matter. After Marshall left Anderson ' and Portland the dead body of a murdered man was found in a corn shock near Portland, but could not be recognized. The theory now is that this man was with Lafollette and Marshall when the crime was committed and was killed by them In a quarrel over the division of themoney. Thedetectiveskcpt a shadow on Lafollette and went to his home to •arrest him. As they entered the house lie killed himself in a room overhead. There is much circumstantial evidence at Portland against Marshall. IHISKS SHE HAS BEKN DUPED. A Woman Who Became » SiTunpcr's Wife After » Month's Acquaintance. Terre Haute. Ind., May 24.—Mrs. Olis- Ba Thomas who was the widow of the late Professor Thurman, of the high echool, is in doubt whether she is now the wife of S. J.

Lafayette, Ind., May 24.—Returns on fruit crop prospects have been collected from seventy-five counties of this state by the agricultural experiment station of Purdue university. Twenty-four counties- report the prospect for apples good, forty-two only fair, and ninepoor. The only counties reporting a poor prospect for peaches are Dubois, Lawrence, VanfierburR, Floyd and Monroe. Grapes, blackberries and raspberries promise well, while strawberries were seriously injured by the drought of last season.

No Sign Yet of the Princeton Inn and McGiffert Ciixes. Winona Lake, Ind., May 24.—The proceedings of the Presbyterian general assembly yesterday were of a. routine character. The interests discussed were those of the board of missions of freedmen, the committee on Sabbath observance, board of education and com- mitttee on authorized missionary periodicals. As yet no sign of the Princeton Inn or McGiffert cases has been seen. What action may be proposed in either is still in doubt, though' speculation is rife. In the latter case individuals are laboring to secure instructions to the-New York presbytery to proceed to a judicial investigation of the alleged heresies 9f the Union seminary's professor'of history. This ce.se may come up at any time on a report from the committee on bills and overtures, but the Princeton Inn case will not come up till the end of the week with the temperance report.

Dnngrn of the Trail to Damon — The Boandary Qae&tion a Difference In Methods of Measurement — Lake Bennett a Typical Boom Town. [From Our Special Correspondent.] LAKE BENTTETT, Alaska, March 28. I have jest had a long talk with ila- jor Walsh, administrator of the Yukon for the Canadian government. I found him at bis own headquarters^ a little back from the tented town of Lake Ben nett, and busy with a mass of correspondence. He impressed jne by his soldierly bearing and a modest and unassuming manner which is usually the concomitant of real- merit. Few men DOW living have had a more varied experience in frontier life or with hostile Indians. He spoke in complimentary terms of General Allies, whom he knows personally, and also referred feelingly to the late General A. H. Terry and tc General Phil Sheridan, whom he likewise knew 011 the border. Major Walsh seemed a bit surprised •when he learned my wife was -with me. "But you are not going to take her to Dawson City with yon?" he asked. "That is my plan," I replied, "and why not?" "Simply because if yoa do yon will be impaled on one of the three horns of an uncomfortable dilemma," said he. " 'xou will either be obliged to hire Indian guides to either drag you up the Yukon from the shore or pole you up to the lakes, which must be done late, say in October, and at considerable expense, for yon can never get ap that swift current yourself, or yon will be obliged to stand your chance of going home by the way of St. Michael's in a vessel that yoa wonld not trust your life in for a moment on the ocean, and at a heavy food lor this animal in this locality I have been unable to find much of it." What Alaika Need*. Major Walsh is of the opinion that •what Alaska needs most as present is toe means of securing provisions at the cost of ordinary transportation. He thinks this will be consummated a little later by the Canadian government by means of the railroad from Glenora into the interior, and that the country will then be a good one for the prospector who is satisfied with a modest income, say from $5 to $10 a day. He says that while it may be doubted that many more rich strikes may be made there are fields capable of supporting hundreds of thousands of people provided the cost of living can be reduced so that the independent miner may find it profitable to wash out $5 per day. _As_to tjje_J^undary~~nhe quesTTon, he said, the Chilkoot pass line, whare the mounted police are now stationed and are'collecting duty, is not disputed territory. "The case in a nutshell is this," he continued—"your government measures from inland waters and ours from the sea; or, if you please, you may put it in this way—your government claims that the inland waters are the sea and we claim tbat they are not. This is al the dispute there is or ever can be con cerning the boundary question." J>awson City High Prices. WP are already beginning to get : taste of Dawson City high prices, be cause from here on, when the ice breaks up, it is an unbroken waterway to tba place and the cost of transportation is not exorbitant considering the distance For instance, meals consisting of beaus, rice, bread, ham or bacon and coffee, are $1.50 each. Lodging in a bunkhouse, where all sleep in one room and each provides his own blankets, is from 50 jents to $1 per night. I had occasion to buy an ordinary crosscut band saw the other day and was obliged to pay $ S for what would probably cost $1.50 in the States. Plonr is worth §45 per faarre: today, or rather §12 for a sack of 50 pounds. Lake Bennett is one of the most live ly settlements we have seen thus far on the trail. It has two or three' bunk houses, called hotels, the ubiquitous sa- CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE. Chicago Grain and Produce. Chicago, Mar 23.

I thanked him for his advice, but have not yet changed my plans. Ignorance About the Situation. "As to getting in or oat of Dawson City," continued Major Walsh, "there is yet an astounding amount of ignorance as to its actual difficulties, and I wonder that your government entertained the thought of a relief expedition for an instant. Of course anything like a so called snow and ice engine is out of the question, and, as for horses or mules, after they have been packed with the 600 pounds of forage, which is the least which can be provided for their use to Dawson City, and the food and blankets and camping utensils necessary to the man who accompanies them, they cannot be relied to take a •ingle pound for relief. Indeed I qnea- MAJOR J. M. WALSH. tion whether any one can come ont of Dawson City to the coast or go in during winter ontess he strikes a spell of the most favorable -WBather." "But people have come out the past •winter," I interposed. "Yes, bat how did they do it? ID every case, so far as I know, they were given food, shelter and good cheer as well as information concerning the neit post by our police. They have come into onr posts well nigh exhausted, and have helped them on repeatedly when without onr assistance they must have perished. The reindeer idea is also chimerical one, for if there is any common along the trail. When a poor devil gets discouraged or ill and re solves to go no farther, he can always find some one to take his outfit off his hands and pay him—not a fair price ; but possibly a little addition to what it cost him in the States. Than the outfit is sold piecemeal or complete to whom^o- ever may want it and at a handsome profit. In fact, any one who has a speculative nature and a disposition to profit by his fellow creatures' misfortune can easily make considerable money here. There are "corners" in a small way that are in every way as shrewd and quite as daring as any perpetrated in Wall street. For instance, there may be a shortage in flour or coffee or candles or kerosene oil or any other article of prime necessity. Tho shrewd speculator goes quietly around and buys up all he can get hold of. Then if no more comes in he sells oat at about any profit he chooses to ask. A Wood Famine Imminent. Timber and wood promise to be scarce articles here erelong if the rate of devastation continues. Onr party has carted firewood three miles for use in onr tent, and timber for boatbuilding is becoming almost estinct. Lumber at present is worth $500 per 1,000 feet, and a sawmill company has received a grant of a large portion of the timber in the locality. The price of boats thus far is from $200 to $400 each, but no rational being would care to trust his life in any of those which sell at the first named figures. Two steamboats are to run on the lake this season, but from present indications they will not be clear of ice under two months ac least I have made diligent inquiry to learn the destination of the majority of those who are on their way to the Yukon and find that a large number intend going through to the American side. There will also be quite a number go to the Big Salmon and Stmart rivers, and a good many, perhaps the majority, hare no fixed ideas whatever as to their destination. They will "follow the crowd" —go anywhere if there be a possibility of their finding the ranch gonghtfor gold. Some indeed imagine they can pick up nuggets almost anywhere. It is a pity tbat such a golden dream must tare » rude awakening sooner or later. A, A. Hm,.
