Tli Thrilling- r.xiierlenee of Vuung
I'm-lln will KrleuilA.
Kkniikick, Idaiio, Dec. I. The so
cnlied loHt hunting party in the Hitter
Hoot mountains of Idaho, w hose reHCue
linn excited so much interest during the
pHHt few weeks, was organised !y Mr.
V. K. Curlin last summer. The jiurty
consisted of W. K. Carlin, son of Brigadier-General
William I. Carlin; J. II.
Peirce, brother-in-law of Mr. Carlin;
and A. L. A. Himmelwright, secretary
of the Columbia Granite company of
New York City. They secured their out
fit in Spokane, and engaged Martin
spencer as guide, and George Colgate, of
I'ost Falls, as cook. They proceeded by
train to Kendrick, Idaho, and, with ten
rayuscs and five weeks' provisions
started out from thut point on Septeni'
her 18. The route was by way of Knell's
Mill, YVeippe, Brown's creek, Mussel
Shell creek, and thence via Lo I.o truil
to what are known as the Indian post-
oflices,55 miles from Mussel Shell creek.
At this point a trail branches from the
IO Ia trail, and leads to the warm
springs on the Cleurwater river. The
destination of the party was reached on
September 2(i. Although it rained
steadily for 13 days, which interfered
considerably with the pleasure of hunt
ing, the parly met with great success,
and on October 11) started on the return
trip over the a l.o trail. After reaching
the top of the first ridge parallel to the
Clearwater river, 2.' feet of snow was
(mind, and the guide estimated that the
now would le four feet deep on the
higher portions of the I-o Lo trail. Should
the horses become exhausted from lack
ol fund, the party would lie compelled to
walk the Imlunce of the distance to
Mussel Shell creek, and as the cook was
tick and unable to walk, his position in
' NiWiase would he very serious.
Thev decided to build rafts and went
''own the river in this way 22 miles when
I'oniilers and swift water made further
(""Kress impracticable. It was there
"l"n decided to abandon the rafts nnd
proceed the remaining distance of about
to miles on foot. The cook at that time
'is in a semi-conscious condition, mor
tification having set in in his legs below
the knees. Only eight days' provisions
were left, and as the cook could not pos
sibly live but a few days longer and was
besides perfectly helpless, he was made
ah comfortable lis possible and the rest of
the party began the journey on foot.
The shores of the river were a mass of
ragged rocks on which one could get at
best only an uncertain foothold. Fre
quently a large projecting clilf would
atig over the river, and an hour or
more would be consumed in surmount
ing it. Ou the third day after abandon
ing the raft the party reached the liluck
anyun, which proved to be eight miles
ln length. The river there haa almost
vertical walls, varying from 2o0 to 1,000
'cet in height. Clinging to bushes and
"'mill saplings with a footing sometimes
only a few Inches in width, and often
many hundred feet above the river, the
progress of the nartv was necessarily

Three days were consumed in passing
"'rough the canyon, without shelter or
"ftnkots, and sometimes harassed by ;
rain and snow. Very little sleep could
be secured, ami when on the eighth day
the supply of flour was exhausted there
was ample cause to feel discouraged.
Itut, enfeebled us it was from loss of
sleep and scarcity of food, the party
pushed bravely on. On the 10th day of
their trump, November 22, after having
subsisted for two days on tea, three fish
and a few berrios, while slowly moving
down the river, and when within five
miles of the nearest ranch, the party
was fortunate enough to meet Lieuten
ant Klliott, who was in charge of the
relief exjieditions sent out from Van
couver burracks. Mr. Elliott immedi
ately made camp and cared for the hun
gry men. His uniform kindness and
solicitude for their comfort was much
appreciated. As fust us tiie party was
ablo to travel they were hurried onward
by bouts on the river to the Indian ferry
on the North Fork of the Clearwater
river, 24 miles from Kendrick, then by
wagon to Suell's Mill and then to Ken
drick, where they arrived safely on No
vember 80th, and were met by Brigadier-General
William P. Carlin.
A Murderer Hanged.
Ahtokia, Dec. 1. John Reiter, the
murderer of Victor Snellman, woe
bunged promptly at noon today. He
reud in a firm voice a confession ac
knowledging the justice of his sentence.
JuHt before the trap fell, a large num
ber of sheriffs from different parts of the
state and about 500 invited citizens from
the city and county were admitted w ith
in tiie iuclosure and suw the hanging,
which went off all right.
Ho ascended the steps of the gallows
unaided and was given a few minutes
time in which to say a few words to the
spcteators. In firm tones he said :
"I acknowledge my guilt of the crime
fur w hieh I am about to suffer death, the
justice of the sentence and the im
partiality of the judge and jury. I have
to thunk Sheriff Smith and his deputies
for their kindness. I forgive everybody.
I hope that I may myself be forgiven,
and all will pray for me.
Hnn.Ktliiii In the Coughlin Cane.
Chilauo, Dec. 1. The Coughlin case
furnished a fresh sensation this morn

sented affidavits showing that Juror Fred
Crehm swore falsi y in his examination
for admission to the jury when" he said
he was in Toledo during the time of the
Cronin murder. Affidavits showed he
whs in Chicago and attended the Cronin
funeral. The attorney linked that he be
discharged. This, immediately '"'.low
ing the dismissal of two jurors at the
request of the prosecution for having
secured places on the jury in Coughlin's
interest, leaves the case in a chaotic
condition almoHt unprecedented.

DEVOTED MAIXLY TO ROUTINE
Nothing Definite Submitted on the
Hawaiian Question Upholds
the New Tariff Bill.
The C'hlneoe Question
The legislation of last year, known as
the Geary law, requiring the rcgistra
tion of all Chinese laborers entitled to
residence in the United States and the
deportation of all not complying with
the provision of the act within the time
prescribed, met with much opposition
from Chinamen in this country. Act
ing npon the advice of eminent counsel
that the law was unconstitutional, the
great mass of Chinese laborers, pending
judicial inquiry as to its validity, in
good faith declined to apply for the cer
tificates required (by its provisions. A
test npon a proceeding by habeas corpus
was brought before the supreme court,
and, May 15, 1893, a decision was made
by that tribunal sustaining the law. It
is believed that under the recent amend
inent of the act extending the time for
registration, the Chinese laborers there
to entitled who desire to reside in this
country will now avail themselves of
the renewed privilege thus afforded by
establishing by lawful procedure their
right to remain, and that thereby the
necessity of enforced deportation may to
a great degree, lie avoided.
Tha Hawaiian Affair.
It is scarcely necessary for me to state
thut the questons arising from our re
lations with Hawaii have caused serious
embarasement. Just prior to the in
stallation of the present administration
the existing government of Hawaii had
been suddenly overthrown, and a treaty
of annexation had been negotiated be.
tween the provisional government of
the islands and the United Stales, and
submitted to the senate for ratification.
This treaty I withdrew for examination
and dispatched Hon. James II. Blount
of Georgia to Honolulu as a special com
missioner to make an impartial investi
gation of the circumstances attending
the change of government and of all
conditions bearing upon the subject of
the treaty. After a thorough and ex
haustive examination, Mr. Blount sub
mitted to me his report, showing be
yond all question that the constitutional
government of Hawaii had been sub
verted w ith the active aid of our repre
sentative to that government and
through the intimidution caused by the
presence of an armed naval force of the
United States, which was landed for
that purpose at the instance of our min
ister. INSTRUCTION'S TO WILMS.
Upon the facts developed it seemed to
me that the only honorable course for
our government to pursue was to undo
the wrong that bad been done by those
representing us, and to restore, as fur as
practicable, the status existing at the
time of our forcible Intervention. With
a view of accomplishing this result,
within the constitutional limits of our
executive power, and recognizing all our
obligations and responsibilities growing
out of any changes in the conditions
brought about by our unjustifiable in
terference, our present minister at Hon
olulu has received appropriate Instruc
tions to that end. Thus far no informa
tion of the accomplishment of .any do
finite results bus been received from
him. Additional advices are soon ex
pected. When received, they will be
promptly sent to congress, together
with all other information at bond, ac
companied by a special executive mes
sage detailing the acts necessary to a
complete understanding of the case, and
presenting a history of all the material
events leading up to the present situa
tion. The Turin:.
After a hard struggle, tariff reform is
directly before us. Nothing so import
ant claims our attention and nothing so
clearly presents itself as both an op
portunity and a duty an opportunity
to deserve the gratitude of fellow citzens ;
a duty imposed upon us by our oft re
peated professions and by the emphatic
mandate of the poople. After full dis
cussion, our countrymen have spoken in
favor of this reform, and they have con
fided the work of its accomplishment to
the hands of those who are solemnly
pledged to it. If there is anything in
tho theory of a representation in public
places of the people and their desires, if
political officers are really the servants
of the people, and if political promises '
and professions hnve any binding force,
our failure to give
tbe relief so long 1
awaited will be sheer recreancy. Noth
ing should intervene to distract our at
tention or disturb our effort until this
reform is accomplished by wise and
careful legislation. While we should
staunchly adhere to the principle that
only the necessity of revenue justifies
the imposition of tariff duties and other
federal taxation, and that they should
be limited by strict economy, we cannot
clos? our eyes to the fact that conditions
have grown up among us which in jus
tice and fairness call for discriminating
care in the distribution of such duties and
taxation as the emergency of our govern
ment actually demands.
THE INTERESTS OF LAIIOR.
The interests of labor are certainly
though indirectly involved in this feat
ure of our tariff system. The sharp
competition and active struggle among
our manufacturers to supply the united
demand for their goods soon fills the
narrow market to which they are con
find. Then follows a suspension of the
working of mills and factories, a die
charge of employes and distress in the
homes of our workingmen. Even if the
often disproved assertion could be made
good that a lower rate of wages would
result from free raw material and low
tariff duties, the intelligence of our
workingmen leads them quickly to (lis
cover that their steady employment, if
permitted by free materials, is the most
important factor in their relation to

The Jury Decides Against Him on Six
Counts Big Fire in Baltimore.
Washington. D. C, Dec. 4. The
president submitted his message to con
gress today. It is a very lengthy docu
ment, covering a wider range of euhjects
than tho one submitted to the special
congress in September. Of paramount
interest is his attitude on the Hawaiian
question. He stoutly maintains his
former position taken, and intimates
that developments will vindicate all his
actions. Of special importance is his
advocacy of the abolishment of all fees
pertaining to federal courts. He is an
tagonistic to the fee system and urges
congress to formulate the necessary leg
islation looking to its abolishment. The
subject promises to become fruitful.

Baltimobe, Md., Dec. 2. Fire con
sumed $400,000 worth of property in
West Baltimore tonight. A general
alarm was sent in from Lombard and
Paca streets about 5 o'clock. Within
two hours the commercial world was
bereft of eome of its stellar enterprises,
and a localitv renowned for its historic
surroundings and imposing edifices was
wiped out by the dreadful fire. Hun
dreds of wage-earners had just been dis
missed for the day when the cry of fire
rang through the six-story double build
ing at South Paca street and Cedar alley.
Number 34 South Paca street was occu
pied by three firms, the Deutsche Lith
ogranh company, the drawers and over
all factory of Juhn & Co., and the shoe
factory of Charles Heiser. ' Nearly all
the employes had departed before the
fire alarm had been sounded, but when
the flames were discovered eating their
way along the ceiling Annie Taylor be
came frenzied and leaped from a second
storv window to the ground. She is
dangerously injured. The firemen
worked hard to save the I.angfelder
building, but were battling against si
much tinder. The flames spread to 3ti
Sjuth Paca and that building was
doomed. Sheet after sheet of flame
swept in the direction of the university
of Maryland buildings, but were fought
back each time until the rear walls of the
Heiser building fell upon the roof of the
dissecting building with a crash. This
decided the fate of the lalwratory, and
in a short time the entire building was
gutted. For five hours tbe city was
illuminated by the blaze. The four-
story double warehouse and luetory ot
M. S. Levy fe Son, manufacturers and
wholesalers of straw hats, Lombard
