Tbc Carlin Party Fonud. Which Have
Been Ont Sines Sept. 20.
The Cook Missing, Having Been Left
Behind, and It Is Feared
He Is Dead.
Si'okask, Wash., Nov. IB. A courier
arrived at Kendrick, Idaho, at 5 o'clock
this morning after an all-night ride from
Weippe with news that Lieutenant
Elliott had found the Carlin party on
the middle fork of the Clearwater, 130
miles from any settlement, laet Wednes
day. The lost party were in had shape
when found, being out of provisions,
barefoot and with little clothing. They
were slowly making their way down the
river when found. George Colgate, the
cook of the party, gave out a few days
before the rescue and had to be left and
it Is feared ho may have died. All that
is possible will be done to find him, dead
or alive. The rescued and rescuers are
expected here Tuesday and General
Carlin will be here to meet his son. The
story of sufl'ering, desperation and hard
ship told by the lost hunters was heart
rending. They managed to cross the
Clearwater in several places at great
risk to their lives, being compelled to
wade the icy current up to their necks
or swim amid floating blocks of ice and
snow. Nearly all their horses died of
cold and starvation. The men tramped
for miles through the deep enow in
blinding storms, with scarcely any food
or clothing, being pat on half rations of
bacon and bread. At last the struggle
became too much for George Colgate, the
cook of the party. Colgate realized the
situation fully and advised his cou. pan
ions to attempt to save themselves.
Strong men shed tears when one of the
party was loft behind to meet his fute
alone. It began to appear as if all would
be lost, and at most the only hope held
out to them was the chance of being
found by a relief party, which Carlin
said he felt sure would be sent out for
them. The rescuers and rescued are ex
pected iu Kendrick Monday,. Lieuten

jrses, borrowed a saw at a rancher's
cabin, made a skiff, and had gone up the

The courier gives the following account
of the egress of the party from the
mountains during and from the time
that they discovered they were irretriev
ably lost unless heroic methods were at
once adopted to make their way out of
the wilderness :
"October flth, the day upon which
they were preparing to leave the Clear
water, a heavy storm came on, which
completely obliterated all the roads and
trails. To add to their distress their
animals stampeded, and when night
overtook them they were powerless to
proceed. Being without anowshoes or
other appliances for winter traveling,
their perilous situation was soon realized,
and it at once became apparent that the
party was in for it. That night there
fell more than five feet of suow, and the
following morning consultations were
held, but no definite plan of action was
decided upon until the following evening,
when Guide Spencer decided upon brav
ing the storm alone, promising to go to a
certain point he had in view, which, if
ho could reach in safety, all would be
well. This, however, he failed to do,
the remainder of the party not consent
ing, preferring that all should live or die
together. And so the little band re
mained, trusting to fate and awaiting
succor, which arrived almost too late.".
How the Hawaiian Mattor Is Viewed at
the Capital.

Washington, Nov. 24, 1S93.
"Support my tariff bill or you will get
nothinn from the administration," is
the ultimatum which Mr. Cleveland has
given to those democratic congressmen
who are disposed to protest against the
wholesale crippling of various industries
in their districts that the new tariff bill
will bring about, should the schedules as
prepared by the direction of Mr. Cleve
land be allowed to stand. The number
of democratic protestors is largo and as
the result will probably decide the re
nomination and election of most of them
it will not be surprising should many
decide that the welfare of their constitu
ents that is endangered by the Cleveland
t.riff bill is of more Importance to them
than any favors that Mr. Cleveland has
to give out, and be found carrying ont
tho threats now being made of uniting
with the republicans for the purpose of
securing protection of their constituents.
One of the arguments advanced by some
of the Cleveland men is characteristic
ally democratic "Support the bill as it
is ; the senate will be certain to amend
it according to your wishes." The same
sort of argument got votes for the Wil
son repeal bill at the extra session.
Nobody need lie surprised to hear that
Secretary Gresham has resigned. His
position i now anything but a desire-
able one. Instead of the vindication he
thought the publication of Blount's re
port would bring him and the adminis
tration, he finds the public much more
disposed to accept the answer to that re
port made by the Hawaiian Minister
Mr. Thurston as a correct story of
the Hawaiian revolution. Secretary
Gresham is eo chagrined that he hardly
gives those who come in contact with
him a civil answer to the most trivial
question. It is understood that he
wanted to send Mr. Thurston his pass
ports because he made public his answer
to Blount's report, but that Mr. Cleve
land forbid it.
Senator Culiom, of Illinois, does not
mince wrds in expressing his opinion
of the Hawaiian policy of the adminis
tration. Ilusays: "The president has
overstepped the bounds of American
patriotism and the authority vested in
his office. It is the most un-American
and unpatriotic step ever proposed by
any administration, and congress, al
though it id democratic in both branches,
will, in my opinion, take the first oppor
tunity to administer a severe reprimand.
I know of no man iu congress who has
endorsed the action of President Cleve
land in regard to Hawaii or who has
spoken a word in behalf of his unpatri
otic effort to restore the monarchy. The
act already committed by the adminis
tration is clearly without authority.
The action of President Johnson, whom
congress moved to impeach, waB not half
so reprehensible as that taken by Mr.
Cleveland and his secretary of state. It
is a most humiliating spectacle to any
true American citizen, and I might add
that it appears to be the most senseless
exhibition of combined mendacity,
malice, viciousness and outrageous exer
cise of official power that the world has
witnessed in modern times."
There is one paragraph in Secretary
Carlisle's New York chamber of com
merce speech that, in view of the
methods of Mr. Cleveland, is really
amusing, particularly to democratic con
gressmen not on good terms with the ad
ministration. They are in doubt as to
whether the secretary intended to be
delicately sarcastic at Mr. Cleveland's
expense, or was preparing the way to
shift th. blame for the lack of a financial
policy from the administration to con
gress. Here are the words of Secretary
Carlisle: "It must be remembered,
however, that it is the function and duty
of the legislative department to establish
the policy of the government upon this
and all other subjects, and to clothe the
executive with the necessary authority
and means to carry it out. When the
authority and means are granted the ex
ecutive department is responsible for the
manner in which the law is executed,
but beyond this it has no power to act,
and consequently no duty to perform."
Hon. Jos. N. Manley of Maine, was
here early in the week making prepara
tions for the opening of permanent head
quarters for the national republican com
mittee in Washington, from which the
distribution of republican literature and
other educational matter will be con
tinuously made, without interfering with
the work done in that line by the con
gressional committee or the League of
Republican clubs. Gen. Harrison wished
the national committee to do this four
years ago, but a majority of the com
mittee did not agree with him and it was
not done.
Speaking of the national committee, I
have it on good authority that when the
committee issues the call for the next
national nominating convention it iil
include therein an edict reducing the
representation in the convention of those
southern states in which the republican
party practically has no organization to
about two delegates each. The idea be
ing that the states from which the elec
toral votes must come should be allowed
to name the party candidates. Cas.

Washington, Nov. 27. The new
democratic tariff bill is given out. Its
provisions fulfill every expectation of
those who predicted it would be a
measure of radical reform. In many
respects It is a surprise even to demo
crats, as it is unprecedented in many
provisions. The free list is of liberal
scope, sufficient to satisfy the most rad
ical advocates of reform, and the repudi
ation of the principle of reciprocity is
decisive and emphatic. Thus the bill,
In addition to tariff reforms, will, if
passed, necessitate the readjustment of
treaties with South American countries,
which enjoy practical or theoretical reci
procity with the United States. The
bounty on sugar, instead of being re
pealed at once, will be repealed by easy
graduations and will not reach the full
effect till after the close of the present
