AT TACOMi Northern Pacific's Docks Carried Into **uget Sound. PERSONS WERE DROWNED. tobmerged Strip I* 1,800 Fnat Long and ) 800 In Width— Work <>f itepalrlng Will I Commence at Once— Freight Hotme | Wont Down In the Crash— Safe With I Money nnd Valuable Paper* Lost, /. I TACOMA, Wash., Nov. 80,— Investigation proves conclusively that Wednesday night's great landslide was caused by neither a tidal wave nor earthquake, Puget sound has very steep shores. Jtist outside the Northern Pacific docks the Ij bank elopes into deep watjr at an angle Y>£ degrees. Fif$ fnel from the dock the water is 150 to 200 feet deep. At 'great expense the railroad has -put in solid docks of main land, supported on jthe waterside by a rock wall, built against piling driven into the mud, This was not strong enough to b§ar the immense pressure and when the high bank further up had been made slippery and' loose by recent rains the outer edge of the dock began to slide and finally gave way, precipitating into deep water one of the most valuable portions of the water front. The submerged strip is 1,800 feet long and 200 in width. . Two persons were killed: Emma Btubbs, the 15-year-old stepdaughter of H. H. Alger, a boathouse proprietor, and John Hanson, the night watchman,' who was carried down with the engine house containing the boiler and pump which furnished the • power with which the bluff side was being washed down by hydraulic pressure and the balance of the wharves filled in beneath. A few minutes before the slide Hanson had been talking with Policeman Keene. The latter is certain that Hanson had no chance of escape. Neither of the bodies have been recovered. Superintendent McCabe says the permanent damage to the railroad docks will not amount, to over $7,000. . The work of repairing the dock will commence at once, but the rebuilding of the sea wall for 1,800 feet will bo deferred until chief engineers at St. Paul decide what plan shall be adopted' to insure future permanency. The south end of tho freight house, in which the offices of the cashier and 24 clerks went down in the crash. Tho safe contained $2,40(i in cash and valuable papers worth iJ12,uOO. It WJH supposed the safe and the valuable freight records had been sunk in 'iiib feet of water, but the two story building in which tho officers were located was found partly submerged ou .the baach at Gig Harbor, eight miles away. The safe and records are now supposed to be safe. A diver has been telegraphed for to come and search for them. The dauiags to shipping and other losses is estimated at $!«,000. __ _____ POPULIST LEADERS TO CONFER. Will Meet at St. ii.uls to DUoou New , l,lne»*f Action. ST.

ItMervntlon* — Beeotnmeitdi • Chunge In .System of Surveying— Olevo land Much (jbetter. Nov. HO.— The annual report of Secretary Hoke Smith of the Intel ior department deals largely with Indian affairs, and he^ presents some practical ^ suggestions for the development and' civilization of the Sacs, He discusses the subject of education and of allotments of land in severally, and urges that the education of the Indians should be for the purpose of fitting them to perform the particular responsibilities most likely to fall to their afterlot. He presents t'no possibilities of the reservation as land to be improved and developed to which the Indians should be taught to apply those modes of agriculture recognized in civilized life. The education should fit them for this work and they should be led on with the assurance that the government dealing with this land will treat the Indians with perfect honesty. Allotlng of I nd Inn Land*. Upon the sn'bject of allotments he says: "I do not question the advisability of al- loting lands to Indians in severally, but I do most seriously question the propriety of this course before the Indians have progressed sufficiently to utilize the land when taken. The allotments should be made to the Indians in severally for the good of the Indians and their advancement and not for the purpose of obtaining land connected with the Indian reservation to satisfy the insatiable desire of bordermen who obtajn it frequently not for homes, but for speculation. ,1 urged 'a treatment of Indian land based solely upon the purpose of realizing from it for its own highest possible value, what is best for the Indians — to keep their land or to sell it. If the members of a tribe have reached a state sufficiently civilized to be able to progress still further by selling a portion of their laud, the sales should be made. It should be sold for the Indian by the United States.' The department acting as a faithful trustee and obtaining for the Indians every dollar which the land will bring. "The policy of the government should be to recognize tha land of the Indian reservation as tho property of the particular Indians who own it. The different land should be studied to see how best their value can be increased. There are ample public lands in tho United States for hoineseekers; can we not be satisfied to allow to the administration on behalf of the Indians the little we have left them?" Self-Supportlng Agenole*. With reference to the development of the resources of the agencies and the character of the people, he urges that each , Reservation must be treated in view of its resources as a separate business problem and he says: "Many of the agencies today taking into connection the trust funds held by the United States for the Indians upon them are already self-supporting. By a faithful effort to preserve the properties for its real owners and at the same time to compel' 1 the reservation Indians to work and labor for a livelihood, I believe that it is possible to make self-supporting nearly every agency. "But to accomplish this agentsl|abso- Intely faithful and thereby capable must be placed in charge. Something of the missionary spirit should be in tho heart of every employe of an Indian agency or Indian school. I cannot claim that the present administration has uniformly succeeded in selecting people of tho character described, but it is tho earnest purpose of the Indian bureau and the department to study the employes thoroughly throughout the entire service to make proficiency tho chief standard of retention in office and to wake apparent capacity the sole ground for new op. pointmenta. I believe it is possible to develop a complete, permanent, iionnar- tlsan Indian csurvloo and I hope before the oiul of another year that such progress will have been made iu that direction that its realization will be assured," Among other things iu connection with education of the Indians, the secretary says: "Iu tho management of the Indian schools u definite pluii for the Indians wluiu school Is finished must always bu iuvitud if practical results, are expootod from his oducatiuu. Education should bo practically directed with a view to tho probable future of tho Indians, If hu is to romaiu away front his furmur hoiuu anil to i>utur tho struggle of lit'o iu our citio* and towns us any othur uitiiwu, tliuii his viluca.tiou should b i HH bi'oiul ami iiborul la )XMsiblo, But if ,hu is to u'turu to tho reservation to tliu nlaco of his birth to roconimeuce hU life iu tho development of the resources of thu reservation than his education should b;> iliruot'i.l ujpecially with a viuw to the lifu hu will Ittad upon the raurvatlou aud to tha possibility of the I'OsurvHtiun." loSculu Upon the siibjuuts of ountruct schools, ho nays: "1 agree fully with those who I oppose thu ua-> of money for the use of tuv^ioriau scliooh.

So dense was the throng that many were still outside the gates at 2 o'clock, when the play should have been started. la order to enable these to have an equal chance with the early comers the game was not started promptly at the appointed hour. At 2 o'clock the crowd became restless and admirers of Ihe two teams yelled themselves hoarse in their endeavor to outdo each other.
