OUT OF n05DAU."
Victoeia, Nov. 9 A carpenter and a
laborer, who were emploved to build a
warehouse near Stickeen river Jat summer,
were seized by about thirty Indians, who
foreed.iiem into one of their canoes- and,
without any explanation, toolc them to an
islancT not far from Fort Wrangel. The
men remonstrated, bnt In vain, and their
captors compelled them to" assist in clean
ing and drying fish, and rtiade theut per'
form the most menial duties. This kind
of treatment lasted several weeks, biit one
day the carpenter and his comrade, In com
pany with scteral Indians, went ont on a
fishing cruise. About noon the canoe was
loaded and ill went ashore. Some of the
Indians straggling away from the beach,
the carpenter saw that his time of .deliver
ance had come, and according ta hw state
ment, he picked up a huge , rock and
rather stunned or killed three of the In
dians who remained behind witb hinvand
his companion. Then he grasped a paddle
and. jumping lnto.ffce canoe ordered his
friend' to hurry up and come aboard. For
a time tlie man seemed dazed, not dream
ing that tlie cameuter would have resorted
to such desperate measures to ensure" their
escape. Jiventually, however, he got into
the canoe and both paddled off just as tlie
other Indians returned to find their three
tillicums lying senseless on the beach.
Paddling with all their might, the fnglrtves
soon got clear of the island, and after being
at sea tor several days, during which tune
they suffered great privations and subsist
ed only on a portion of a dried salmon
which had been left in the canoe, they for
tunately reached Fort Wrangel Thence
they took passage on board one of the
steamers and arrived in safety at this port.

Chief Thordike took them to Mrs. Post,
who immediately identified them as be
longing to her little boy. The revelation
fastened the guilt upon Mary Tucker, a
quadroon girl who had been working in
the family about four months,. At 'first
she stoutly denied all knowledge of the
affair, btit finally admitted that she was
the mother of the child, and the attempted
murderer of hef own offspring, She had
shown no signs of having become a motherl
and went right along doing her work as if
nothing iiafl happened, ana when asked
after acknowledging it. why she had not
said something about it beforehand, said
she was afraid of being discharged from
her situation and "ouM have no place to
go. She states that the child was born in
the privy at live o'clock the morning it
was found in the vault, and 6he, not wish
ing to be found out. had disposed of it as
heretofore stated. She, at tho request of
Sir. Thorndike, lunil-slied the water to
wasli the filth from the babe, and is said to
have acted as indifferent to it as if it had
been a cat or a dog instead of a child of her
own. She signified her willingness, after
being exposed, to take the child aiid rai-m
!.t, and is at present nursing the poor little
waif at the hospital, wlicro she is kindly
treated by the Sisters of Charity, who wiil
keep her until sho can procure work or, a
home elsewhere. She states that a well
known Skagit logger is tho father of the
child, a tid is very positive about it.
