Alaska Whale Furnishes Mo
tive Power to a Boat.
Will lie llltchwl l'p and Driven hy Sua
to the Oregon C'uaat In Aug
Ho They Hay.
Colonol F. W. Bluck, of the customs
department, at Sand Point, Pup UtT
Island, situated in the Shunagin KruP 1
of islands olt the Alaskan poniusula
while in Taooma, told a story of a cap
tive whalo, which, if truo, proves that
the Pop Utf contains a guuius iu the
liuo of animal taming.
"We," said Colonel Black, "of the
island of Pop Off have iu Pirate Cove
bay tno first and only living whale
ever captured, tamed und trained,
and that will work at the will of its
"The whnle, whioh we named Bul
shoy, an Aleut word for immense, was
captured in the spring of 181)4, when a
calf of some eighteen or twenty months
old. It was then about fifteen or six
teen feet long and though so young and
Bmall was possessed ef considerable
strength, and I oan assure you that it
took tons of patience to bring the crea
ture into subjection, small as it was.
"Bulshoy'g capture was brought
about by an accident that cost two na
tives their lives, and the total destruc
tion of two large three-hatch bidarkas.
"During the confusion attending
the capture a large female, accom
panied by its calf, made for the west
ward, and in attempting to round a
sand spit that ran out several cable
lengths from the island, it grounded,
and as it was full flood tide, the more
efforts it made to free itself the more
firmly it became grounded. The calf,
when its mother grounded, kept swim
ming ronnd and round its mother, and
would stirke out to sea a short distance,
returning again to its stranded parent.
"About half a mile from the sand
spit where the whale grounded is the
entranoe to Pirate Cove bay, and when
the natives and the few whites came
alongside the stranded monster the pup
made a break for the cove and passed
into the bay, the entranoe to whioh is
not over 100 feet wide, though it is full
twenty fathoms deep. John C. Whiley,
the storekeeper at the island, stretched
across the mouth of the cove a strong
wire net. We had lots of sport chasing
the calf, which oould not get out.
"To celebrate the Fourth of July,
Whiley and his native servant, Efteha,
made an attempt to feed it and were
successful. Whiley rigged up a walrus
bladder to whioh was attached six or
seven feet of rubber tube. About one
half a gollon of cow's milk was put in
the bottle, and Whiley and Efteha put
it in the bidarka and paddled alongside
the pup, which by this time would
allow thorn to oome alongside him with
bidarkas. After several hours of pa
tient coaxing, tho Indian suocecded in
getting Bulshoy to drink from the rub
ber tube. When the bidarka turned for
the shore Bulshoy followed close be
hind it.
"For the next six weeks Whiley and
the Indian fed the pup twioe every
day. The pup would stick his ounning
head out of the water, close to the land
ing, and look for his nurses long before
feeding time. It was not until the fol
lowing spring that the actual training
of Bulshoy began to take any definite
"Whiley one day said, 'Iampoing
to train that pup so that I can clrh'o
him to Oouga or San Francisco.' Tho
rest of us laughed at such a crazy idea,
but Whiley stuck to his uction.
"While the process of taming was
goin on, Whiley had taken the pup's
measure for a set of harness, and both
he and bis native spent the nights for
several weeks in making it. The cli
max was reached on Friday, September
20, when for the first time, probably in
the history of the world, a 4-year-old
twenty-five foot whale was successfully
put in harness. When Whiley and
Eftoha, after putting on his harness
started for the shore, Bulshoy as usual
started the bidarka, and in doing so,
made the discovery that everything
was not as it should be, and then he
reared and plunged around at a lively
rate, lashing tho quiet water of Ihe bay
into foam in his efforts to free himself
of the offending harness. But the har
ness was well and strongly made, and
there was no shake off to it. liulshny i
kept up his antics for two whole days, j
and for the first time since the episode I
of the battle, next morning he refused i
to come at the call of either Whiley or j
the Alent. Hunger, however, soon
brought ibm to his senses, and on the
morning of the third day, as the native ;
was out on the bay in his bidarka,
Bulshoy came meekly alongside and
seemed to beg for his much-delayed
breakfast, which was given him.
"From that day Bulshoy made no j
more trouble, and Whiley could pull j
the guy ropes attached to his harness
as hard as he could without causing j
the pup to dive.
The novel outfit is expected to be off
the Oregon coast between August 5 and
10, as the party would not leave Kar

south in short and easy stages. i
" 'What are we going to do win, i
him?' That will depend on circum- !
stances, but it is our intention on our j
way south tostop for day or so at all
the varous summer resorts along the
Oregon and California coast, and 1 1
have no fear but what we will be able
to use Bulshoy'g wonderful power to i
make a barrel of money. Who knows (
but what. Colonel Sellers-like, 'there
may be millions in it,' for if one : In Massachusetts the lieutenant-gov-whale

Shot Through the Heart While In the
Spokane Court Home.
Spokane, WaBh., Aug. 8. L. H.
Plattor, a well-known attorney and
Demooratio politician, was shot and
almost instantly killej in the oorridor
of the oourthouse shortly beiore o
o'clock this evening. The shot was
fired by Henry Seiffert, a restaurant
proprietor and sporting man, who is
also well known.
The tragedy resulted from remarks
made by Plattor in court, and whioh
Seiffert construed as a reflection upon
bis oharacter. Seiffert was being
pressed before the court as adminis
trator of the estate of Rudolph Gorkow,
a rich brewer, who died here this
week. Gorkow had marired a variety
aotress about a year ago, and the mar
riage wae an unhappy one. He brought
suit for divorce shortly before his
death, and in his will cut his wife off
with a dollar. She is contesting the
will, and there is a struggle over the
administration of the estate. Plattor
represented some of the benefloiaries of
the will, opposing Seiffert It had
been insinuated that Seiffert's relations
with Mrs. Gorkow were not of a prop
er nature.

down that all railroads against which
suits are now pending for vacation of

More Salmon Thitn the Lower KWer
Cunnerlee Can Handle.
Astoria, Or., Aug. 8. The receipts
of salmon at the various lower liver I
canneries continue unusually heavy i
and are far iu excess of the oapnoity of
several of the packing establishments.
Today the fish were so plentiful tliHt
one of Kinuey's men delivered nearly
100, and near Sand Island it was re
ported that the water was almost alive
with large chiuooks. Many were re
ported to have been taken with gaff
hooks by some of the men who found
themselves in the midst of a great
school of fish. At one or two can
neries, where too many fish were re
ceived, the loss is heavy. Tons of the
fish aro being thrown overboard at
Kinney's on account of the lack of
means to preserve them until they oould
be canned. As many as possible have
been salted for the winter use by the
citizens in the west end of town, and
were freely given to all who would
carry them away.
Fishermen assert that never since the
canning industry began has suoh a run
been seen. If it oontinues until the
close of the season, the chances are fa
vorable for a muoh larger pack than
had been anticipated. An unusual
feature ot the situaton is the quality of
the fish, which is fully equal to those
taken in June, the flesh being excep
tionally red and firm and the quality
of oil abundant.

It Is Estimated That
4,000 Chinese
Shanghai, Aug. 4. News of a most
terrible disaster, whioh occurred on
Sunday lftst in the province of Kiang
Su, has just been brought to this oity.
An immense tidal wave, fully five
miles in length and of great height,
swept i from the sea upon the coast
of Hayoiiau, whioh is in the southeast
ern part of the province, inundating
the entire oountry and destroying
numerous small villages in its path.
At present it is estimated that 4,000
people were drowned, but it is probable
that when a full investigation has been
made, that number will be increased.
In addition to the great loan ot hu
man life vast numbers of cattle were
drowned. Rioe fields were submerged,
and the crops almost totally destroyed,
and a famine is feared iu the distrlot
during the ooming autumn., Great
numbers of people who esoaped the
fury of the waves are left utterly desti
tute, without food or shelter or the
means of procuring it.
Hal Chau is situated opposite Yu
Chan island, on the coast of Kiang Su
provinoe, whioh is on the Whang Hai

level, whioh may account for the great
loss of life. Kiang Su is one of the
most fertile provinces of the empire,
