Prom an Interview with General George
H. Randall, commander of the Federal
troops at Nome. In the Nome Gold Digger
tit June 27 the following excerpt is
"It is wise to give the truth to the
outside, else all kinds of wild stories aro

lessness, when It does not exist. There
Is a bad clement here, it Is true, but
that elom it rm bo managed very well.
The most serious thing we have to con
sider is typhoid fever. There are a num
ber of cases already, and there are sure
to be many more. The camp must be
cleaned up. The conditions in the rear
of some of the saloons is frightful. It
Is a serious menace to health. I will at
tend to the cleaning up promptly."
The General spoke of St. Bernard Hos
pital "being full of patients, and said what
to do with the sick was a problem. De
partment Surgeon Ebert estimated there
would probably be 10 per cent of the
people attacked, or 1500 cases.
There are 1C patients in the St. Ber
nard Hospital, two-thirds of whom have
the typhoid fever, says the Digger. The
fever is increasing somewhat, owing to

The steamer Ohio arrived from Cape

Glacier Bay Fnll of Ice.
According to reports of the officers of
the Cottage City, arriving this morning
irom Sitka, Mulr Glacier has been trans
formed from a grand and awe-inspiring
mountain of fee to a mass of ruins.
Glacier Bay was packed with floating Ice
bergs, so that the Cottage City could not
enter the bay or reach a point nearer than
60 miles to where tho glacier once stood.
She had freight for Bartlett Bay, which
opens into Glacier Bay, but could not
reach that point to discharge. So much
Ice has never been seen in that section
since steamers have been running north,
and the officers of the Cottage City say
they can account for it only by the theory
that Mulr Glacier has been reduced to
a mass of broken lco by an earthquake

Government Ha Sent Medical Sup
plied and Doctors Have Gone.
WASHINGTON, July U The Treasury
Tcpartment today received a telegram
from Lieutenant Jarvls, of the revenue
cutter service, saying that there had
teen 20 cases of smallpox to July 2 at
Cape Nome, and asking for medical of
ficers and supplies.
The telegram Is dated Cape Nome, July
2, and was sent to Port Townsend, the
nearest telegraph station. Lieutenant
Jarvis was sent to Cape Nome as the
special representative of the Treasury
Department. He does not say whether
these cases have appeared In the crowded
camps or on shipboard. Two vessels
that started for Cape Nome recently
found smallpox aboard shortly after
leaving Dutch Harbor, and it is possible
that the cases spoken of are on board
these vessels, although there are many
rumors that the disease has broken out
ashore. The Treasury Department has
ordered 1000 vaccine points sent to Nome
and a number of physicians have gone

Done by Telegraph Instead of 'Draft
NEW YORK, July 11. Financial, circles
exhibited much Interest today "in tho
method of paying for Klondike gold dust
consignments received at the Pacific.
Coast. Five million dollars' worth of
gold consigned to New York branches
of Canadian banks has already been an
nounced, remittances covering a portion
of the amount having been received in
this city yesterday. Instead of effecting
payment by drafts on the New Tork Sub
treasury, tho exchange was made by
telegraphic transfer by the Seattle bank
wiring its New Tork correspondent to
pay the Canadian bank 5350,000. This sum
probably represented the face value of
tho drafts given by the assay office of
ficials on the Subtreasury at San Fran
cisco. This form of payment Is quite as con
venient as would be drafts against the
local Subtreasury. but does not affect
bank reserves at New Tork in the same
way. Yesterday's payment, for instance,
has not affected reserves or deposits in
New York banks as a whole, because the
deposit was withdrawn -from one bank
and credited in another, where the Cana
dian bank kept its account. But when
the draft Is covered by the remittance
of tho gold, there will be created a new
deposit, with an increase of cash belong
ing, the surplus reserves gaining 75 per
cent of the amount involved as a net re
sult of the operation.

SKAGWAY SITE CLEAR,
Ancient Location Canceled as Hot in
WASHINGTON, July 1L The Commis
sioners of the General Land Office today
rendered a decision involving the site of
the City of Skagway, Alaska, which had
been claimed by Bernard Moore, who set
tled on the land, claiming it for agricul
tural purposes, 12 years ago. In 1S36, ho
claimed the land as a trade and manu
facturing site, and up to 1S97 was in un
disputed possession of the tract. At that
time the town sprung up and grew rap
Idly, and the entry was canceled by the
local officers in 1E3S. It was shown that
he was not using the land for trade and
manufacturing, but merely as an em
ploj e of a foreign corporation he had been
permitted to carry on business. This the
Commissioner holds to be insufficient
grounds to entitle him to the town site,
and his entry has been canceled. This
decision, if sustained by the Secretary of
the Interior, will clear the titles of many
residents of Skagway as well as the
tradesmen and manufacturers of the
Retnrn of Tug Holyoke.
SEATTLE, July 1L The tug Richard
Holyoke arrived from Nome Tuesday
afternoon. She towed he barge Skookum
from here to that place. Her only pas
senger was ex-Governor John H. McGraw.
The tug left Nome June 28, two days after
her arrival there. Her captalnt J. S. Bal
long. reports that the voyage north was
uneventful. Of the stock, only one horse
was lost. The Nome beach, he says, was
plied high with goods. General Randall
has issued an order for 200 feet of tho
water front to be kept clear, to facilitate
the landing of freight.

SALEM, Or., July 11. The body of Roy
D. Gage, of Company C, Third Regiment,
Oregon National Guard, was found In the

the steamer Ruth, and was left where
found, but sequrcd to the river bank.

OFFERED THE PRESIDEXCY OF Klf
hunting for the body ever since Sunday.
A military burial will be given, if pos
sible. This has been a splendid day for work
at Camp Geer. The weather was cool
and refreshing breezes prevailed. The
parade this evening was given In honor
of Adjutant-General Gantenboln, who ro
vlewed tho brigade. In addition to the
usual parade, two cavalry troops and the
battery passed In review at a trot, and
again at a gallop. The parade tomorrow
evening will be in honor of General Sum
mers. Tho granting of passes permitting tho
soldiers to visit town at night is one of
the greatest tasks that devolves upon the
Guard officials. Passes are granted by tho
commanding officers and approved "by the
Acting Assistant Adjutant-General. The
privates get their passes from their Gap
tains. Early in thO encampment it was
found necessary to require that these
passes bo presented for approval eirly
in the day. A general order was therefore
made requiring passes to be presented
before noon. THIs was known as "gen
eral order No. 4." The soldiers, however,
have been slow to learn the rule, and
present their passes at all hours.
The climax of every day's work at Camp
Geer Is the evening parade and review.
The companies march from their quar
ters to the parade-grounds and form In
battalions on the battalion line. The Ma
jors then takp command of their battal
ions and the troops are formed into regi
ments on the regimental line. The Colo
nels then assume command, and the Act
ing Assistant Adjutant-General forms the
regiments, battery and cavalry troops
into a brigade on the brigade line. Tho
brigade is then turned over to the Brigadier-General,
who conducts the parade.
When tho brigade has been formed, the
reviewing officer, who last evening was
tho Governor, together with his staff,
arid accompanied by the commanding of
ficer and his staff, ride along the front
and rear of the ranks, and then assume
a position In front of the troops on tho
opposite side of the field. Tho whole
brigade then faces the right end of the
parade-grounds and marches to the end
of the grounds, turns across tho field and
comes down Immediately In front of the
reviewing officer. Each company is
formed in two ranks of men walking
abreast, the rear rank keeping as close
to the first as possible. This makes a
line of 25 to SO men marching abreast,
keeping step and maintaining a straight
line. The test of efficiency is whether
the lines are straight, whether tho sec
ond row of each company keops close
to the first row, whether the men keep
step with each other and with the music,
whether the guns are all held In exactly
tho same position, and whether the cloth
ing of every man is properly arranged
and scrupulously clean. The critical mo
ment Is when each company passes the
reviewing officer. The march down half
tho length of the field gives ample time
for the men to lino up and prepare for
the inspection, and in almost every In
stance tho boys do themselves credit.
It is not possible to say which com
pany got tho most applause, though some
companies fail to get any by reason of
a broken or curved line. The crowd
never applauds a company that makes
a poor showing. Some of the companies
sto comparatively new and have many
raw recruits. It is difficult for these to,
make a good showing, for one man out
of place spoils tho looks of the whole
When the, brigade has- passed tho re
viewing stand a considerable distance
the companies break away and march to
their nuarters. .When, the companies
have broken ranks a very noisy and
amusing scene follows. Tho boys of each
company gather in a crowd and give
oheer after cheer, or a company yell, as
an evidence of tholr opinion that they
aro the crack company of the brigade.
Some of the companies give their yell
and then turn upon their neighbors with
a scornful "Hoo-00-00!" that expresses
their opinion of thoir rivals. With a
dozen companies cheering at once the
nolo is tremendous.
ThB encampment is a school for others
than the members of the National Guard.
Tho hundreds of visitors who throng the
grounds during the day and the thou
sands who witness the parade in the
evening see much that teaches them les
sons In orderliness and politeness. In all
tho vast crowd on the grounds last even
ing, there was probably not one who
lacks in devotion to the Stars and Stripes,
yet, when the band struck up the "Star
Spangled Banner" and the brigade flag
was slowly lowered, not one in ten of
tho visitors tpok off his hat. An officer
stepped out in front of headquarters and
shouted: "Every American salute the
flag." E very American withjn hearing
of the officer's voice responded. It Is not
probable that on a simitar occasion the
same people will need a suggestion, before
they give an outward manifestation of
their love and reject for,'"OJV'.Dlory."
It Is noticeable that not all the mem
Wm. ;-w 'WIT
hers of the guard are familiar with the
proper procedure on such occasions aa
that just mentioned. But those who fail)
to salute the flag aro not left long in
ignorance, but are informed with a repri
mand how they should conduct them
selves. One sentry took off his hat as
a salute, but was instantly commanded
to put on his hot, face the flag and
