One of the clerks of the House, the

- Alaska comprises more than 550,000
square miles. That portion of the prov
ince north of the valley drained by the
Yukon, and lying for the most part be
yond the Arctic circla has about 3000 Es
quimaux inhabitants, who will not sur
vive long the present rapid disappearance
of Jhe walrus and the whalo. In the
great valley of the Yuicon are a hundred
villages, half on the river banks and a
fifth on the delta, containing, G370 peo
ple, all savages save nineteen whites and
eighteen half-breeds. Tlie Yukon ia 000
miles long, seven miles wide, 1000 miles
from its mouth, and pours into tlie Beh
ring sea a volume of waler one-third
greater than the Mississippi delivers into
the Gulf of Mexico. The lower valley of
the Kuskokviin river, lying beyond the
mountains toward the Yukon delta sup
ports a population of abmt 0000, all sav
ages, except three while men. ' To the.
southeast is the Kodiac division, with a
coast stretching from the Shumaqutn is
lands to Mouut St. Elias. This division
includes Kodiac island. The population
is 4352, one to every sixteen square miles,
with nearly a thousand whites and half-
breeds. To the westward stretching out
towards Asia, is a long line of treeless is
lands with a population of 2451, one to
every six square miles, who in the sea
naileries and in the pursuit of the fox nnd
sea otter are the most profitably em
ployed of all of the natives of Alaska.
This population includes 82 white", 470
half-breed i and the 290 inhabitants of the
Pribylof islands in Behring sea, vt Inch
are the breeding grounds of the fur seal.
From two of these islands, St. George,
containing 33 square miles, and St. Paul
27 square miles, comes all the direct rev
enue of the United St ttcs from its pur
chase of $7,200,000, and that revenue of
over $300,000 pays a fair interest on the
investment. To these islands every
year comes more than 4,700,000 seals.
One hundred thousand of-tlie young; male
seals are yearly killed and their skins
shipped lo London. The remaining di
vision of Alaska is the Sitka region, al
ready becoming well known to tourists.
It has a iopulation of 7001 Indians and
over 2000 .whites and half-breeds. The
Indians are willing to work, and appre
ciate, regular wages. The scenery is so

The middle states conference of prohi
bitionists was held lately in New York.
Plans were laid for state and focat con
ferences. Tlie iavorite forthepftsiden
titl nomination is Gen. Clinton B. Fisk
of New Jersey. An anniversary meetfng
was held at Checkering hall and ad
dresses were made by. SU John, Fisk and
tractive village, and Silka is already a
beautiful town. Wrangel is described as
an, Indian village uncontaminated by
civilization; tliat is, 'nasty and unclean."
The Yukon river is not open to naviga
tion until July and closes at the end of
September, but in the Sitka division, be
tween 55 degrees and CO degrees of north
ern latitude, the thermometer in fifty
years has never been under 4 degrees be
low zero"and never but once has gone to
87 degrees above. The means of all these
years was 43 degrees 28 minutes. In
1837 the fir'st snow did not fall in Sitka
until Jari. 1G, but tlie summer is not
warm. The native population includes
i-17,617 Eskimo Indians, 2417 Aleuts and
11,-478 Indians. The imports are yearly
10,000 barrels of flour, 6000 cases of hard
bread, 1200 chests of tea, 2500 barrels of
sugar and between 15,000 and 20,000
pounds of tobacco, with'an equal value of
dry goods. The resources of Alaska are
at present furs, fish and minerals. Six
thousand sea otter skins are taken an-
-finally on the southern coast, (he beaver
extends through the east inferior, and
the fur trade has doubled since Ameri
can occupation. The salmon are so nu
merous that, with reasonable restriction,
one-fourth could suoport the natives and
the rest supply the world. There are
deep sea fisheries of cod and halibut far
exceeding in quantity and-ease of access,
the fisheries on th Atlantic cbast. The
greatest stamp mill for pounding-gold out
of rock, is on Douglas isfund,in onr Alas
kan archipelago. This mill now num
bers 120 stamps, and the owners have al
ready begun the work of doubling its ca
pacity. The gold-bearing rock vein is
400 feet, wide. There is little gold to the
.ton, but tliere is plenty of rock and the
process of extraction is not cosily. The
vein stretches for miles the whole length
of the island. Water power is used, but
steam power is at hand in case of drouth.
Coal has been found in several places.
Tlie forests of Alaska will some day be a
source of wealth when the timber of Ore-
gon and Washington has been much di-
minished. Thomas B. Reed, m North
spread, and hundrcda'of men and .boys
gathered on the wharf of the Oregon Im
provement Company's mill, watching the
rescuers who had, gone to the. wreck with
boats. -Many Nvhohadseenthcexplosion
fronr that point said debris 'was blown
100 hundred yards in the air, and 'one
man said he' saw the body of one ot the
men blown fifty yards into the air, alight
one yards away, and then watched him
swim about until rescued by boatmen.
The bay between the mill and lines of.
poles was covered with wreckage. Tlie
heaviest timbers of the frame work, .sides
and roof of the cabin ladders, tool-boxes,
etc, covered the water.
The scene beggard description. Not a
piece of the boiler properremained. Tlie
fire box had been torn from the boiler
and lay upside down in the hatch. Tlie
iron where the boiler was fastened to the
fire box was torn away as if it had been
rotten felt. No peace of the engine re
mained. The connecting rod was broken
in two, and the house which stood in.tlie.
rear oi the boiler was blown to atoms,
and nothing remained but a piece of the
THE INJURED MEN.
Tlie workmen who had been thrown
into the water by the explosion, after
they had been rescued and placed on a
scow, were taken aboard the Lone Fish
erman and taken around to Coleman's
wharf, where physicians and teams were
in waiting. They were removed to their
homes and given medical care.
James Livingston was taken to his
boarding place at Mrs. Plummer's, cor
ner of South SeCond and Jackson streets.
He was very badly injured and died at 4
o'clock this afternoon.. He wa.s scalded
on the face, head, back and right arm,
was then thrown a long distance, and
picked up nearly drowned. He was a
native of Nova Scotia, 29 yaara of age,
and leaves some brothers and sisters at
home. He was a member of the K. of P.
and Odd Fellows.
John H. WynuMi was thrown fifty feet
and swam around until picked up. He
was taken to the Mill-street house, where
Dr. Minor sewed up a large gash in his
chin and dressed his wounds. His right
leg is b.i'lly injured but not broken. He
is bruised about the head also.
Wm. Driscoll and F. McPhereou were
slightly Inlured. Frank Byret and Ed
1 t'oster, foreman, escaped unhurt. The
engineer, John Lr James, -JIs a married"
man. He was t iken home dnd attended
by Dr. Willard. He is badly scalded on
ihe head, body and legs, and very badly
shaken up. He was able to converse at
2 o'clock, and told the following story :
"We were moving into a new position,
preparatory to driving a fresh pile. As
near as I cau tell, we had 100 pounds of
steam. I think the boiler was blowing off
a little. I was standing by the engine,
with my hand on the le.er, when the ex
plosion occurred. I was. thrown to one
side and but for a pile would have fallen
into the water. My head, which lay
over the. side in the water, fras pulled in
by some one, and I recovered. The ex
plosion was caused by a weak boiler. It
was unsafe. I threw up my job the" 1st
of December on account of it, and retur
ned to work again by request. I had of
ten told my wife when going to work
that she must not be surprised if at any
time I failed to return, home alive. I
had often spoken to the boys about the
unsafe character of the boiler, and also
spoken to the owners, Messrs Allen &

bacon now, I will give you my way. A
cold, frosly time is best, but a rainy time
is better than a north wind, which dries
the skin on the meat so hard that it will
not take salt. If the hogs are large and
the weather not cold enough to cool them
through, it is best to take out the back
bone and ribs as" soon as killed. For
salting I use a box six inches deep and
three feet wide by four feet long. Pour
Into the box 50 pounds ot Liverpool salt
and 2 pounds of brown sugar. A little
saltpeter will da no harm t but too much
is worse than none. After the meat is
cot up put each piece into the salt box
large enough to hold all the meat and
cover it up to keep out the flies. After it
has lain one night take it out and let it
air over night; then salt as before and re
pack. This must be done about three
times, then two or three times after the
third night. After Ijmg in salt three
weeks, take up the meat and wash off the
salt and hang np to smoke. I tike gal

Commander-in-Chief Rae of the G. A.
R. has expressed himself as being heart-
ilyin sympathy with tho pension bill'
prepared by that organization, and pre-'
diets that it will receive the necessary
support and become a law., This bill,
similar in many respects, to the service
pension bill vetoed last year by President
Cleveland, provides, among other things,
for pensioning that large class of invalid
soldiers whose circumstances are such
that they cannot prove, satisfactorily,
that they are entitled to a pension.
Many cases exist where it is well known
by friends that the disability of tho appli
cant for pension was caused by tlie expo
sure of army life, but whero tho lapse of
time renders it impossible to bring con
elusive proof of the facta in tho case.
The death of a single man whoso affi
davitona pension application has been
demanded has been known to defeat the
issuing of the order to place the appli
cant's name upon the pension roll.

The Oeiqw of the Word "Boodle."'
The word "boodle" has gono into the
United States language. Eastern news
papers, even those of Boston, use it wittv
out quotation marks. We believo" the'
word originally appeared in the Commer
cial Gazette in a report of the great
American Express robbery in Cincinnati
several years ago. On Sunday afternoon
a one-horse wagon wa3 driven up to the
office oti Race street, a small iron travel
ling safe was loaded en and taken over
into Kentucky and rifled. Larry Hazen,
the famous old detective, was employed
by the Express Company to work up the
case, and he succeeded in recoverinz
most of the money. When met by a re
porter at the station after the lucky carw
ture, Hazen threw up his hands in a
happy mood and said, "We've got the
boodle 1" -The word was afterwards ued
to denote money U3ed for dishonest pur
poses in local politics, and disreputable
politicians in the city and stale came to
be known as "boodlers," and their party
as the "boodle party." The word spread
in usage and is now common throughout
the country. Cincinnati Inquirer.
