C DeJean, who returned the other day to his home in this part of the state from Alaska, does not cpk very encouragingly of the prospects mere, and makes ser!ou3 charges against the transportation companies and accuses them of knowingly misrepresenting the situation in that rer glon. He states that perhaps one out of a thousand reports ent out to the effect that gold has been found may be believed. In his opinion the p'orics of fabulous flnd3 Rre set afloat by the transportation companies for the ?o!e purpose of increasing their business.

Believe si 8a e Back if Yon Want It, Means What It Says, the Immense amount of gold brought out by them. DeJean asserts that many of the disappointed gold seekers are thus compelled to perjure themselves In order to get out of Alaska at all. He expresses the belief that gold in anything like the quantities reported is not to be found there, and that nobody In Alaska is making much money except the transportation companies. His advice to intending gold hunters 13 to stay at home unless they have plenty of money to take the trip for pleasure. He states that in juneau good board can be secured at $1 per day at two different hotels. Plenty of carpenter work can be had, but as It rains about half of the time the man who works at this trade or any other finds himself so exposed to the elements that even the $5 per day offered is small Inducement.

A COURTMARTIAL PROBABLE Said There Was Ko Necessity for Abandoning the Teresa. 00MMA1TDEE MOORE'S - CONDUCT It Is Hinted that lie Was AY illiua: Com mander Harris, a Volunteer Officer. Should Shoulder All the Blame Other OfScers Criticised by Navigators. Washington, Nov. 13. According to the 6tories of the officers and men of the Leo- nidas, which brought captured guns from Spanish warships, the inquiry into the abandonment of the Maria Teresa . will in all probability result in a courtmartial to somebody. They are nearly unanimous in saying that there was not the slightest necessity for . abandoning the captured Spanish cruiser, and this view is borne out by the fact that the ship drifted over thirty miles and went ashore on Cat island the follow ing morning without serious damage. The men on vbe Leonidas .eay that the proper plan would have been for all of the crew to have abandoned the Maria Teresa except two or three men. A catamaran or life raft could have been towed astern of the ship, and the men left aboard could have-cast off the towllne and taken Ao the life raft if it became necessary. Before the ships left Guantanamo Lieut. Commander Harris, who represented . the navy on the Maria Teresa, arranged to show the ensign on the mainmast in case he wished to confer at short range, with the Leonldas. ' The ensign was shown during the day of November 1, but Commander W. I. Moore, of the Leonldas, was afraid to : put hls ship about and go to the relief of the Maria Teresa because of the necessity of getting into the troueh of the sea. Later in the afternoon he executed this ma neuver twice, but it was too late. . It appears that Commander Moore was the senior officer, of the fleet and should have assumed the responsibility. This he apparently declined to do, leaving Lieut. Commander Harris on the idarla Teresa to exercise his own Judgment, although the cruiser was really under command of Capt. Chittenden of the wrecking company. Harris was a volunteer officer, .while Moore belonged to the regular service, and it is hinted that the latter officer purposely kept out of , the way to avoid responsibility and fix the blame , upon the volunteer officer. . , However this may be, some of the officers of the fleet say that a great ; mistake was made in attempting to make a direct course northward in the open sea.' These were the original' Instructions . of Capt. Chester, of the Cincinnati,. when the litUe fleet left Guantanamo, but Commander Mcore, it is said, would have been Justified in varying them owing to the storm, and instead of coming up-through Crooked Passage and thence out into the tpen sea beyond Salvador, he might easily have run westward along the north coast of Cuba to Key West and thence up along' the Atlantic coast to Norfolk. By so doing he would have had a harbor . of refuge every hundred miles or so. ' Experienced navigators say that Capt. Chester wa3 seriously at fault in sending a half wrecked ship northward in the open sea through Crooked Passage, and they also blame Commander Moore, first for not having exercised the usual discretion and taken a route under the lee of the island, and secondly for not having turned back promptly and assumed responsibility for the abandonment of the Maria Teresa. , With all these facts before it the court of inquiry can scarcely do less than order the courtmartial of. Capt. Chester, Commander Moore and Lieut. Commander Harris. - RISE IN S0LEMX. PROTEST.'' Nejrroes Will Appeal to President Mc-Kinley to $top Race Outrages. St. Louiu, Nov. 13. At a meeting today of the Forum club, composed of about 300 of the most prominent colored citizens of St. Louis, Trof. O. M.

In an Intertiew tonight, Senator Hauna said the tariff would have to be revised to meet "existing conditions. . "The war revenue measures, : he said, "must be revised, but we will keep many orglnal features of the law simply becaus It is now necessary. ; Under the old tarit law we are not getting very much revenue, because we are exporting instead of importing, and something must be done to meet these new conditions We must have a new revenue measure. So far as I am concerned, I favor putting -a duty on tea and coffee. The revenue for the support of the government must be raised in some way and the indirect is the best way, ac cording to my Idea. . When the people do not realize that they are paying a tax .there is no complaint. Still it will be necessary to retain some of the features of the war revenue measure. The tax is now on the people and in some instances It is the proper method of taxation.", t ,-. ' Cnpt Pr-yton Randolph Dead. Lexington, Ky.7 Nov. 13.-Capt.

Burton, of Indianapolis, has a clock which has not been wound In three years and six months, but which has run all the time. It is wound by a more reliable source than anything human. It may be said to be wound by the solar system. In this Invention the axiom of heat expanding and cold contracting is the basis. The clock'is wound by changes in the temperature, the principal force being in the day and night differences. Mr. Burton found that there is an average difference of 20 degrees In the temperature of the nlcht and th day.- The day. of course, Is the warmer. The heat of the day ex pands the atmosphere and the lower temperature of the night contracts ir. This is how Mr. Burton applied the force to his clock an ordinary old style clock- using a Weight: Outside of his house he has a tin tank, 10 feet high and 9 inches in diameter. It Is air tight. From it a tube runs Into the cellar. This tube leads to a cylin drical reservoir, which receives the air from the tank. In this reservoir there is a piston. whose rod moves with a ratchet between the chain on which the tdftton depends. The heat of the sun expands the atmosphere in the exterior tank, thus forcing any excess Into the reservoir near tne clock. During expansion the piston rises. In the night time the contraction of the air In the exterior tank reduces the air in the reservoir and the piston lowers itself. The ratchet arrangement winds the cloek. - Exchange: An Item of local news picked np Is that John W.

Chadron, Neb., Nov. 13. Special: The Indians on the Sioux reservation in South Dakota -were never in a more peaceable cr prosperous condition than at the present time. . . The reports which have been sent out for some time past from correspondents remote from the Pine Ridge agency would indicate that the Sioux Indiana were on the verge of an uprising, but such is not the case. An investigation of the af fairs at the present time on the Pine Ridge agency has been made by your corre-spondenL The present agent at Pine Ridge is Maj. W. H. Clapp, U. S. A., who. in the several years that he has been in charge of the Sioux, has achieved remarkable success and under his guidance the Indians are making rapid strides toward civilization. The story of 500 young Indians, or any number, having banded together or organized to subvert the exist ing order of things, is entirely and wholly untrue. The Indians are now as quiet and contented as they have been at any time in the past. As evidence of the progress that they are making, there are thirty-two day schools and a large boarding school in operation on the reservation, and practically all the Indian children of school age are now, for the first time, in school. Duf ing the past two years Maj. Clapp has scld to these, Indians haying machinery, wagons and harness to the value of more than $20,000, all of which they have paid from their: own earnings, and this has teen taken up and credited to the United States. They pay for all repairing done at the agency sheps, and they are steadily learning: to value property and money. The Sioux Indians on the Pine Ridge re-fcerve are the owners of over 40.000 head cf . horned stock, and sell annually to the government mere than one million and a half pounds of beef raised by themselves. During the present year, over 8,000 calves were branded and the Indians each year are ccming better to appreciate the value of this industry. The amount f.crtme on the reservation is far less than would be found among the same number of white people located anywhere. : ; That Boundary Fence. Maj. Clapp was interviewed concerning the reported uprising of the Sioux and said; :-- :,-D'':- ''- r- -- : ' y 'There is no truth whatever; so far as I am informed and believe, in these assertions which have been made. I am not aware' of any dissatisfaction among the Indians with regard to Mr. Pugh and myself, beyond the usual small discontents common among Indians. Nor am I aware of anv effort on their part for the removal cf either cf us. For several years the northern portion of the reservation has been overrun by , large numbers of cattle from ranches located along the line. These were so numerous and the number of cattle ostensibly held so large as to make it clear that the locations were chosen in crder that the cattle might feed upon the reservation.-" As a remedy for these intrusions, it was decided to build a boundary fence -along the northern line, and it is now about completed.: When the question: of building the fence first came up, the Indians were enthusiastically in favor cf it, but after th-contract-was let a considerable amount cf opposition was developed, confined almost entirely to the districts remote from the fence. Several councils were held by the Indians and every imaginable excuse urged against the erection of the fence. - Some threats of violence were rr.aic. and for a tins matters locked rather serious. It soon became apparent that this. opposition was chis8y the work of cne man; an educated mixed blood, who waff doubtless paid for his work by parties - living outside the reservation. This's conduct was so subversive of peace and good order as to causa 'his ex-puls'on from the reservation. Either he, or tome of - bis" employers, are responsible fcr the report that the Sioux lidian3 aro on ths verge of an uprising. Since this man's xpuMoc, all opposition to the fence has eeased, and the fence is being erected without the slightest difficulty. No other occasion for discontent among these la- ' 'D .i a .5k & F . f ft dians is known to no, and it is believed none exists." . Liquor S ld, 'o Indians. . The towns in northwestern Nebr-iika, lying adjacent to the Pine Ridge and Host-bud Indian reservations, notably anion; them Valentine, Rushville and : Gordon, have experienced a great deal of trouble for some years past by Indians who cose in from the reservations and succeed in getting whisky, which Invariably males them drunk, boisterous and freuenily dangerous. The United States law a ironclad in its provisions against the filing of liquor to Indians, but despite tba many men risk their freedom, for the purpose cf gaining the few dcUara which tea Indians freely give for "firewater." Tb4 practice has been' carried to such an extent that it is rapidly culminating is tU arrest of all evil doers In this directiei In Valentine last week two Indians were taken to the court of Judge Towne chare?! with drunkenness. The court took a s:.es1 wnich at once won for him the respect oi the best citizens in Valentine. He refuse to punish the Indians for their intoxication until the person or persons who lui sold them the liquor could be ' apprthesiW and punished, as he said that this . si the only way to effectually put a stop t? the nuisance. The judge had hardly finished his remarks before another Ini-s: appeared on the scene with his hand badlj lacerated and bleeding, and otherwise ia-jured as the result of a drunken biawi . with another redskin. .This caused t business men of Valentine to agree cpoi heroic steps to put a step to the nuisaa and a number cf prominent business raea including George Elliott, John Sc-.v-r Hon. C. II. Conneil, T. C Hornby, J. Yeast, J. A. Vincent, W. S. George H. Hornby-and W. A. PcUymi swore out a warrant against Charles T.;'b charging him wih selling liquors to I!' I-ndians. Tate was immediately arm:?: and is now waiting for his trial. i y Trouble at Other Towns. A case almost identical has been esper enced ia Rushville, and a man EatE?; Wheeler is now under $300 bonds wai'ia for his trial on the same serious fchar?-of selling the Indians whisky. In Cord 'i the people have the same abuses to res tend with and the merchants of that s -are preparing to organize and put a st" to the unlawful sale of liquor. ChaJrct has been particularly fortunate in ths matter as the saloon men refuse to s?l liquor to the Indians, or to anyone wtoa they know w ill f urnuh liquor to the re-1 men. Most cf the trouble which has te experienced with the Indians has been rt direct cause cf this practice, for the to diansr when intoxicated, are ucreasouaW and their savage spirit usually asserts ii self, thus making them extremely ; daa gerous. : : ;- -. .. - To Cure a Cold ia One Day Take Laxative Bromo Quinine Tablets.
