Nov. 1.—The two sur»Mag beln-at-lair of the estate <>i' George Wasblngton, one of wb9m is' an emploree of the. Congressional Ii-' brary here, hare uken steps to lay before ciongresa claims for three tracts of land!in Ohio, one of them now oc- copUd by the city of Cincinnati. They *ere granted to Washington by the British gorernaienc and by the I'aited Sutes government. The tracts com- pris* mora than 10.000 acres. It la not believed by the beirs-at- Uw that ooogreaa will award them tbe BpecMc tracts which were granted to the first president, but they do expect tfcey will be given a' money . equivalent. It the money award is based oa° the va)u« of the tracts In .'Wtahtngton's time iLwill not be very t *^ Urg«. Bat if it shoufd be based on tbe VW present Talue it would run up into ll (he hundreds of millions. The claims will be laid before congress as soon as it meats in December and a contest that wlJf attract the attention of the whole country will begin. Back, to Fairfax Caart Hoase. The stepv by which the helrs-at-law opened proceedings was taken yesterday at Fairfax Court House. Virginia, when the estate of General Washington, which had lain dormant in the circuit court of Fairfax county more-than IDO years, was reopened and an administrator appointed for tbe-aadistributed assets. The suit filed tor the appointment of tbe administrator, was by Lawrence Washington, i^ho is employed in the Congressional library here and lives in Alexandria, and S. W. Washington of Lexington. Va.. the heirs-at-law. Robert E. Lee of Fairfax count>'. a grandson of General Robert E. Lee. and a great-grandson of "Light Horse Harry." General ^'a«hi^yfi >n'« fhUf of staff, was made { finr7an &ial8trator and will push the claim before congress. Subsequent to the grant of three tracts of Ohio lands to Washington, they mistake granted to ac- tnal settlers and on one of them the city of CInciiinati now stands. Another of the tracts embraces Point Fleas- ant, the birthplace of General Grant, and the third is at tbe mouth of the Kanawha and is valuable for .coal and oil. Of this tract, Washington sald-in bis Will: 'This tract *as taken up by General Lewis and myself on account of the bituminous spring which it con- taips of so inflammable a nature as to burn as freely as spirits and is nearly as difficult to extinguish." Was He Petraleaai'a Dbcoverer! It is said this is the first mention of the existence of petroleum in the United States and It appears probable that in addition to bis order services to the conntry. Wasbingtbn was the discoverer of coal oil. In his will, be urges bis heirs not to dispose of this tract of land at tbe mouth of the Kanawha, as he predicts it will in time be of immense value, which shows that The father of bis Country bad a good ^siness head on hira. Tbe present heirs-at-law are great grand nephews cf Washington, being grandchildren of Bnshrod Washington."a nephew of the general and an associate justice of the first supreme court.

AO dTMllstj, 25 ctatfc COUGHS ^ COLDS . Philadelphia, Oct. 30.—Dr. George . B. Gordon, curator of the University of Pennsylvania's archaeological department, who rettirned to-day after a sly month's expedition through the wildest regions of the Far Northwest, an- nouncca the discovery of a new race living along the Arctic Coast on the Koskokwin River in Alaska. Dr. Gordon brings back a~strange story of those people who had never before seen a while man. who differ from all other tribes of Alaskan Indians. Dr. Gordon heard rumors of the race In ]90 .'t and after inmimerable hardships, reached the territory la which these aborigines live In Adamic simplicit.v. They are called by the Eskimos "Kuskwagarautes" and show strong traces of .Mongolian ancestry. Crime and vice are utterly unknown among them and their t-eligion is natural Pantheism. Dr. Gordon says they know absolutely nothing of cnrniptinn and degeneracy with which the whites have nifpcted the Athabasoen Indiana and Rskimo.s. Dr. Gordon lived for several months among them. The Rare is Dying. "Though they aie dying out." Dr. Gordon said, "ttae.v are strong and clean physically and Intelligent. They have retained the most ancient char- arteristlcF of dress and speech- In clothing. Instead of wearing furs, they sew skins nf birds Into robes, using the breasts of the loon and various species of ducks which abound in the river." Of their clothing: utensil.s. arms, otr.. Dr. f;ordon gathered collections and when they arrive he and other ethnologists will try to discover whether the tribe Is of Asiatic origin or whether ft emigrated from Low^er California. • This new tribe is the onlj- one in Alaska which makes pottery. -Dr. Gordon says. All the others are basket weavers. Dr. C!ord6n believes the race to b« of ancient Asiatic origin, [madually driven by Athabascan Indians and Eskimos to ita present qnar- ters which is a natural fortress.' They represent perhaps the most ancient dwellers of Alaska who made their way there from Asia. Onljr 400 of Them Left Dr. Gordon says these people are monogamists and no such thing aa vice is known among them. They are permitted by their priests to have more than one wife, but never do'so. They have no laws at all, hut are governed by patriarchs. They are tall and the women graceful and beautiful. "There are only 400 of them left," said Dr. Gordon: "It Is to be hoped for their sake that they die out before the white traders get to them. Then they can die as cleanly and happily as they live." Dr. Gordon and his helper traveled down the Koskokwin l .'iOO miles In a small sloop. When they reached Bering sea they sailed for Nome, were caught in equinoctial gales and were 'adrift three weeks. Dr. Gordon was forced to throw his provisions over- hoard to save his specimens. He landed at Nome nearly dead with hunger and exposure. . .
