HAD BEEN REPORTED DROWNED 11 The Victim Numbered Fifteen Tragedy Occurred at the Month of Kutkowla River Story Brought From Nunivak. Port Townsend. "Wash., Nov. 24. If the 6tory of R. Molokoff, who arrived here today from ' Nunivak island, Alaska, is true, the passengers and crew of the steamer Jessie, numbering 15, were not drowned at the mouth of the Kuskowin river, as reported several weeks ago, but were murdered by In dians. Molokoff says just before he left Nunivak island the Indian wife of a hunter and trader, named Marsten, re turned to Nunivak from Kuskowin, where she had been visiting relatives, and reported that when the steamer Jessie and barge Minerva went ashore in the breakers, a large number of In dians were on the beach and rendeied assistance in getting the whites ashore and saving supplies from the barge. After being comfortably oamped, the Indians demanded a larger portion of the supplies as payment for services, whioh, according to the Indian woman's Btory, was refused. A few nights later, while all were asleep, the Indians made a rush on the camp, killing the entire party, including Missionary Webber, his wife and child. After the massacre, the bodies were stripped of clothing and valuables. They were then taken in canoes a considerable distance from shore and thrown in the sea. Molokoff's story is partially corrob orated by a letter from Marsten, re ceived, by Barneson & Chiloott, who owned an interest in the Jessie. Mar sten asks for an investigation, and says that the Indians on the Kuskowin are becoming very insolent." They claim that section as their hunting and fish ing grounds, and do not want whites to trespass, and threaten to make trouble for all prospectors. ' ' ' 1 Winter Potts Established. Vanoouver, B.

PROUD CASTILIANS. , Will Refuse to Accept Money for the Philippines, but Will Sign Treaty. J Paris, Nov. 24. The Spanish peace commissioners laBt night telegraphed to Madrid the substance of the United States' memorandum presented yester day, and late yesterday evening they were discussing it among themselves. As late as 1 o'clock this morning a Spanish commissioner affirmed that liis colleagues did not know what to do re garding the American offer. There is a difference of opinion among unofficial people near the commissions, but the prediction is made that Spain will de cline the American offor of money. She will refuse to cede the Philippines and will say to the United States: "Yon may take the archipelago be oause youhave the power to do bo. As you advance we will retire, protesting against the greedy aggression. We will faithfully oarry out our part of the pledges, and leave Cuba and Porto Rico in your hands. You came to engage in a disoussion under the terms of the protocol, but you evidently meant, when drawing up that document, to provide a conference in which, though we differ man to man, you proposed to announce at the proper time what you would do, whether we agreed to it or objeoted. Such an attitude robs the conference of a negotiative character, and sets up the United States as a dom inant power, whose first purpose is to listen, but whose ultimate determina tion is to do its own will." As a matter of faot, Senor Montero Rios is reported to have used virtually suoh language and arguments as the foregoing. He said more, even indi cating a high degree of exasperation at the American offer of $20,000,000. His manner, no less than his words, betrayed his repugnance AT THEIR OLD TRICKS. Spanish Officials at San Juan Arrested for Doodling. San Juan de Porto Rico, Nov. 24. Jose E. Hernandez, an engineer; Mar tin Rivera, a foreman, and Francisco Noa, a cashier in the department of harbor works, have been arrested charged with misappropriation of fund 8. A detective learned that the department carried "dummies" on its payroll, and charged expenses in con nection with a dredge which has long been out of commission. Major Root, who examined the books of the depart ment, discovered other irregularities, and the arrests followed. The abuses prevailed under the Spanish regime, and have been continued under Amer ican rule. The examination of the prisoners is to take place shortly. Stock Suffered In the 8outh.

Reports from the cattle and sheepraising districts of Northwestern Texas, Oklahoma and In dian territory show heavy losses be cause of the blizzard that has prevailed in these sections since last Sunday night. Alaska Postmaster. "Washington, Nov. 83. The first ap pointment of a postmaster in Alaska for a long period was made today, Emanuel Neilson being named at Suuidum. SPAIN IN DOUBT. fa Considering the American Ultimatum , Further Ielay la Impossible Paris, Nov. 23. The Uni'ted States peaoe commissioners have undoubtedly made their final proposition here. When the conference opened this after noon, Judge Day, addressing Senor Montero Rios and his colleagues of the Spanish commission recurred to the protracted negotiations, and reaffirmed the desire of the American commis sioners to reach an amioable conclusion. Then, handling the American presen tation to the interpreter, Judge Day concluded his remarks by saving that the Amerioans, preferring not to break the armistice or to resume hostilities, had determined to present another and final proposition, which he hoped would lead to a speedy and amicable adjust ment. That portion of the presentation set ting forth the new proposal, the pro posal that tha United States must have possession of the entire Philippine archipelago, with a tender of $20,000, 000 for a treaty cession of the islands, was then read. Without betraying their mental attitude, the Spanish com missioners suggested an adjournment until next day. . ; The new proposition, with its col laterals, was embodied toward the end of the American memoranda, whioh filled 80 typewritten sheets. Only this part was read in the joint session, the memorandum then being delivered to the Spaniards for translation by their own staff. Spain's proposition to invoke the offices of a third power to construe the words "control, disposition and gov ernment of the Philippines" was re jected by the American commissioners on the ground that the diction of the third article of the protocol, dealing with the Philippines, is so broad and clear as to afford no justification for ar bitration as between the parties to the agreement. An analysis of the American memo randum shows that all other sugges tions and other considerations hiiga upon treaty cession at the amuant named by the United States, and within two weeks. In the event of cession. Spain may enjoy for a term of 12 years rights of commerce in the Philippines equal to those of the United States. If the United States acquires the islands by conquest, Spain may not enjoy such rights. Should ' Spain refuse ' cession, she would remain liable for indemnity olaims, national and individual, since the outbreak of the last Cuban insur rection. Should she refuse, she would also lose, probably, as further indem nity for the expense of conquest, one of the Carolines, which, she may now Bell; and other cable' privileges with Spanish jurisdiction might be taken by the United States without any return for them. This evening the Spaniards doubtless do not know whether they will acoept or reject the American terras. They are telegraphing the sub stance of,tfe American memorandum to Madrid, and they expect a reply at the next meeting. . . . Possibly they may conolude that be cause one money offer is made, another and larger offer may follow pressure upon the American commissioners. But if this be their expectations, it will not be realized. The American terms, submitted almost at the close of the eighth week of patient hearing and painstaking argument, are a praotical ultimatum. Surprising Act of Generosity. London, Nov. 23. The morning papers concede the generosity of the offers'of the United States peaoe com missioners and express the opinion that Spain would be foolish to reject them. They express universal gratification at the announcement of an "open door" policy in the Philippines. The Daily Mail calls the offer of $20,000,000 as indemnity, "a surpris ing aot of generosity." HY STONE'S STORY. Explorer Tells a Racy Tale of Fire and Firewater. , ancouver, B. C., Nov. 23. Hy Stone, formerly United States govern ment explorer in Alaska, met 600 would-be Klondikera returning from the Edmunton route, at the junoture of the Maokenzie and Laird rivers. Those who returned by way of Laird river have reached Vanoouver in Bafety after passing through great peril. Stone ao oompanied them, and it is alleged that on the seoond night they camped at the foot of a cliff rising 500 feet sheer from the river. Natural gas was escaping from the sides of the cliff. About midnight, so it is stated, the sides of the cliff broke forth in flames, the fire being started by hostile Indians of the Siwash tribes. The natives appeared in war paint, and demanded wnisky, which the prospectors did not have. For three days the demand was repeat ed, when the Indians fired a volley at the whites, which was returned, and the Siwashes fled. Stone says he noti fied the government, but nothing was done. He did not know any of the white men. Monument Unveiled., Shanghai, Nov. 23. Prince Henry of Prussia today unveiled the monu ment to the officer B and sailors of the German third-class cruiser litis, whioh was lost in a typhoon on July 23, 1896, north of the Shan Tung promontory. The ceremony was very impressive. A large force of German sailors and marines were present, with American, British and Austrian Sailors. The Shanghai volunteers were also repre sented. Surgeon-General George M. Stern berg has made his report to the secre tary of war. It relates mainly to the work of the medical corps during the war. The surgeon-general says sup plies were short when war began, and that much of the sickness among the troops was caused by dissipation. pcppiip Work Stopped on Northern Pacific at Lapwai. ; MUST FIRST HAVE AUTHORITY The Engineers Say They Will Walt for a Permit and Settle Right-of-Way Claims in Advance. Lewiston. Idaho, Nov. 23. The Northern Pacific let a contract to Wren & Greenough, of Montana, for the con struction of a section of road on Lapwai oteek. The agents of these contractors arrived last week, and began prepara tions for grading a roadbed along the narrow Lapwai valley. This valley is all settled by Indians, except a half mile adjaoent to the Clearwater river, and the present line of the Northern Pacific road. The Indians hold these homes very sacred, as they were inher ited from their fathers and then allot ed to them by the government. They protested against trespass, althongh the railway agents offered to purchase the right of way through every holding and the engineers say they had no in tention of proceeding without legal titles to the land appropriated. How ever, excitement ran high when the large force of graders appeared upon the scene. Indian Agent Fisher also pro tested against the trespass upon, the government land without due authority from the interior department. : These conditions were reported to the government, and it is believed an order was asked placing the military at the disposal of the agent, to be used to eject the railroad force if necessary. The officers of the railroad company Bay the excitement was uncalled for, that they never entertained the inten tion of proceeding without first secur ing all the right of way through proper authority. In the meantime a large force is waiting for orders to begin grading. : . The engineers say they will wait for the permit from the government, and they will satisfy individual claims for right of way before they begin. The Indians, whose interests are involved, are intelligent, and they will be guided in the matter entirely by the agent, in whom they have implicit oonlidetnce, and to whom they have appealed for protection in their legal rights. , There could be no demand for troops other than to protect the rights of the govern ment and the Indian wards. The call, if made for this purpose, was from a misapprehension of the purpose of the railroad company. Lapwai creek is a stream flowing from the southward and joining the Clear water river about 10 miles east of Lewiston. The line mentioned in the foregoing dispatoh is not the main projected line of the Nothern Pacific up the Clearwater and across into Mon tana, but a branoh to tap the heavy timber of the Craig mountains, and the rich farming lands of the reservation and Camas prairie. The promptness with which grading crews get at work shows how keen is the competition of the present railroad rivalry. FRANCE AND ITALY. Long Standing Frlotlon Removed by m Commercial Treaty. Paris, Nov. 23. It was quite unex pectedly announced this afternoon that a commercial tieaty has been concluded between Franco and Italy, granting mutually favored treatment except for silk goods, which will remain subject to the maximum tax. - A bill embody ing the agreement will be submitted immediately to the ohamber of depu ties. The government also introduced a bill in the chamber today modifying the wine duties favorably to Italy. The negotiations that have oulminated in these arrangements have been on foot for two years, but nobody believed that a definite agreement was peiJKng. It is believed that the Fashoda affair was instrumental in inducing France to grant the necessary concessions, though it is noteworthy that the silk duties, which caused the breaking of the treaty in 1887, remain almost unchanged. The negotiations have been conducted with the utmost secrecy. The effect of the concessions involved is not yet known, but it is expected that they will have an important politioal influence for the removal of a long-standing fric tion between the two countries. The treaty, it is noticed, was concluded dur ing the absence of Emperor William from Germany, and there is much speculation regarding its probable re sults upon European alliances. SERIOUS PLAGUE RIOTS. Thousands of Natives Making Trouble In India. London, Nov. 83. A dispatch to the Times from Allahabad, oapital of the northwest provinces of India, says: "Serious plague irots took place at Seringapatam, on the island of Cavery, Mysore, on November 18. Ten thou sand natives from the villages round about concentrated at Seringapatam, and made a desperate effort to enter the forts and rescue the prisoners there. "Another mob from the Mysore side tried to rush the bridge. In each case the police fired volleys and succeeded in frustrating the attempt. Many per sons were killed or .injured. For 86 hours the police were kept under arms. Ultimately troops were dis patched to the scene of the disturbance to be in readiness for any renewal." Freight Locomotive Exploded. Lima, O., Nov. 23. A fieight loco motive on the Chicago & Erie exploded near here this morning, killing David Little, the fireman, and probably fa tally injuring Walter Shirtleff, engi neer; Edward Quick, conductor, and Frank Smith, brakeman. THE MYSTERY DEEPENS. Shot Fired Near the Wallace House at Pendleton. Pendleton, Nov. 22. This evening at 6:80 o'olock another shot was' fired close to the house in whioh lived the family of Miss May Wallace, who was murdered a week ago last Thursday night. The Wallace family gave up tbe house last Thursday ,and P. H. Fee moved in with his family. Fee is a brother of Judge James A. Fee, and oame here but a few days ago from Iowa. : The first night the family oc cupied the house, he heard a noise in the back yard. Drawing baok a cur tain of the very window through which Miss Wallace was shot, he saw two men jump the fenoe and go scurrying away toward the woolen mills. He thought from their general appearanoe' they were Chinamen. The next night he also saw men prowling about, and notified Sheriff Blakely, who detailed two deputy sheriffs to remain in the house all night, but they saw no one. Fee eaoh time armed himself with two pistols and went quickly in search, but found no one. By daylight he found traoks made by a No. 7 shoe, the ordi nary kind worn 'by white men. The affair has deepened the mystery of the shooting of Miss Wallace, and created most intense interest here. Were it not Sunday evening, when but few men are on the streets and in places of re sort, probably an attempt would be made to clean put Chinatown. Feeling is wrought np, and anger is shown to ward the Chinese residents, although it is not positively known that those hovering about the house were Mon golians. AMATEUR TRAIN ROBBERS. One Bandit Killed and Three Fright ened Away. Barstow, Cal., Nov. 22. The first section of west-bound Santa Fe train No. 21 was stopped two miles west of Daggett early this morning by men se creted in the tender of the engine. Engineer Bunnell was confronted by two 45-Caliber revolvers and ordered to stop, but this order : was counter manded and the train proceeded for another mile and was then biought to a standstill at the command of the rob bers, who evidently expected to meet" pals at this point In th is they were not disappointed, and the robbers or dered Engineer Bunnell to carry a 20 ponnd bag of dynamite to the express, car. Messengers Hutchinson find Blake ly appeared at the door of the express car armed with guns. The robbers fired at Blakeley, who locating them by the flash of their guns, returned the fire, killing one robber. The dead man's left eye and all that side of hit head was torn away. The other rob bers stampeded and made their escape. A posse is in pursuit and it is thought that at least one of them will be cap tured shortly. The dead man has not been identified. It is thought that the men were novices at the train robbing game. They secured no booty. Brakeman Killed in a Collision. Dunsmuir, Cal., Nov. 23. A fatal railway aocident ooenrred at an early hour this morning three miles east of Delta. The regular westbound fieight train, No. 29, had a pair of oar trucks off the rail, and while the orew was engaged in replacing the oar on the track, a special freight train crashed into the caboose, leaving the latter in halves on the bailer of the engine. One brakeman, J. U. Lewis, was in the ca boose. He was mortally wounded, antj died while being taken to Delta for medical aid. There were no other fa talities. The track was cleared for the Oregon express without the aid of a wrecking crew. We Will Buy an Island. Washington, Nov. 22. The acquisi tion of an island in the Caroline group, owned by Spain, will be part of the work of the Paris peace commissiion. Cable communication between the United States and Manila via Hono lulu is regarded as desirable, should we occupy the islands, and Guam island, in the Ladrone group, and one of thn Caroline islands would be useful as intermediary stations. The aoqusl tion of one of the Caroline islands, con sidered suitable for a cable Btation, would involve a money consideration and the United States will pay Spain a reasonable price for its relinquish ment. - i Cuban Soldiers Will Be Paid. New York, Nov. 21. A Herald dis patch Irom Havana says: The Cuban army will receive one year's pay on December 10. Notes for the balance will be issued and the troops will then be disbanded.
