EDITION i ii lias 01 SOUTH INLET Workman Who Gave His Name as Kelly, Disappeared Saturday. HAT FLOATING ON WATER Boutin Camp Workmen Drag Inlet Dil.ftUiitly, but Hud No Trace. A stranger who gave Ills name as ICel.y, ui.pii xl for work tit the Bou tin logging camp on South Ini Thursday afternoon and was accept ed. He worked on Friday and on Saturday morning was assigned to work on the rafting, Clifford Boutin and foreman Dell Saunders were in company with him : were working some distance from him. They had talked with him about the work and went to anotl part of the raft. In about twenty imam s, Bountln wished to speak to hl-i regarding the work, and when he turned to look for him, he could not see him. Boutin went to the place Uicro ho had been working and found his pike polo, and saw his hat floating on the water. Then he found his coat on the bank where he had left It when he went to work. Putting these facts together, Saund ers and Bountin concluded that Kelly had fallen into tho water and been drowned. They searched the best they could and not finding Kelly, went to camp, about two miles distant and reported the cir cumstances. Men were taken from work and grappling hooks were employed in searching for the man all the after noon, but no further traco of him could be found. The men worked diligently all day Sunday with out result. Every foot of the bottom within a big radius has been throughly dragged three or four timc3 and still nothing has been found of the missing man. Mr. Frank Boutin Jr., was seen yesterday afternoon by a Times rep resentative and the following facts were learned. The part of the Inlet where Kelly disappeared has been dredged lately and the bottom Is very uneven, there being large holes In some places, while In others there are hummocks. Mr. Boutin was asked If ho did not believe the tide, which was at ebb when Kelly disappeared, might not have taken tho body out to sea, or at least farther down the inlet towards tho bay, a distance of eight miles. Mr. Boutin answered that he did not think so, for the reason that the bottom is so rough it would likely be impossible for the body to float over tho uneven sur face and away. He said there was some uncertainty as to Kelly's iden tity, for while ho gave his name as Kelly, letters in his coat pocket were addressed to E. G. Jensen. One of the letters was from a sister, who missing man had spent some time of As to the part of the country from which the missing man came, there was no evidence on hand, though there might be some further light when the letters and his effects are oxamlned more closely. There Is a theory that perhaps the man wa3 not drowned, but simply disappeared in order to throw some body off his track, but it is not given much credence, and though the grappling has not been productive, it Is thought the body will yet be found. From conversation with other men at the camp, It was learned that the mlslng man had spent some time of late In Portland. Ho carried a card in the Woodworkers' Union, Yes terday, the grappling was continued, but with what results was not learned. Girls Sent to Panama. Battle Creek, Mich., Nov. 4.

Beneath the waters of the Pacific, Ocean there rests the body of a six-year-oid-'boy who, had ho lived, would have made the fortune of 'some dime museum manager. The child was Thomas Barker, Jr., who, for the past five years, had been with his parents In Nome. He was born in Seattle, and when he was a year old he began to grow with such rapidity ns to alarm his parents and furnish material for wonderment among the physicians of tho northern city. Tho child's appetite was voracious, and despite all tho' efforts of his pa rents to keep him within reasonable bounds, he would daily devour suffi cient food to sustain three men. When he stepped -aboard the steam ship Umatilla to come to Seattle he weighed 1G5 pounds and was little moio than a walking lump of fat. For the first day or so of the voyago he ate with his usual hearty appe tite, but suddenly took sick and died within 24 hours. Tho doctor said that death was caused by fatty de generation of the heart. The body was burled at gea. In addition to his weight, the boy was marked by having six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot. , PHEASANT FLIES THROUGH WINDOW (Eugene Register.) One day last week Mrs. Robert Millican was sitting alone in their home near Willamette when all at once a tremendous uolso in another room, with the rattling of glass, scared her almost out of her senses. She at once surmised that the chim ney had fallen down and the mantel shelf with nil her bric-a-brac had gone with it. She rushed into tho room and found the chimney intact, but a great commotion at one of the windows from which the blind had dropped to the bottom of the sash. On investigating she found that n large China pheasant rooster had flown through the upper sash, break ing the glass entirely out and was struggling to get out through the lower sash. She at once pushed the blind to the sash above and captured tho beautiful bird alive. After she had secured tho Mongolian, etlH hearing queer noises on the outside, sho went out and found that four other pheasants were perched on tho comb of the roof, wondering what had become of their comrade. Of course they flew away at seeing her, but had sho known they were there it would have been an ensy matter to have shot others of the flock.

Joseph Vander wlede, who shot and killed Secret Service Agent Walker, at Durango, and William Mason, superintendent of the He3perus coal mine, where the shooting occurred, were charged with murder today. It is claimed by Walk er's brother It would have been Im possible for him to have been shoot ing at both Mason and Vanderweide, and at the same time have been struck by the bullets which hit him. A new phase was given to tho case today by the discovery that a full set of maps, plate3 and diagrams of the Durango coal field, thestatements of persons and Walker's own memoran dum, which he had been gathering to be. used in the land fraud cases, and which were known to have been car ried on Walker's body, are missing.

HI!, of this city, this morning re ceived a letter from her son, William A. Hill, In tho government service In the Philippines, and halfway down tho page the cheerful letter stopped abruptly and a postscript In another handwriting told her that her boy was dead. Right below tho state ment that her boy, whom sho had not seen for 11 years, would soon come home to her, was the news that his lifeless body now rests In the United States Military Cemetery at Cebu. Hill went to the Philippines With the First Montana Volunteers In 180S and after the war took up other work for the government. Recently he has been working in the engine room of the Omaha, a vessel of the United States quartermaster's depart--iion., traveling between the different Islands of tho Philippines, and about two months ago he was injured in an accident on the boat. Blood poison' set in on a wounded nrm and Hill wa3' placed In the Military Hospital in Cebu. On September 17 the young man began a letter to his widowed mother in Albany. In cheerful tones he told how he was recovering from his In jury and though weak was getting along nicely. Ho said he could not leave the hospital for probably a month yet, but would come straight to her when the physicians let him travel. But bad news followed good and right In the middle of a sentence che letter stopped. A nurse wrote on the bottom of the page that while he was writing his lungs suddenly choked up and that ho had died that same day. His body was burled with the honors' of a sol dier, added the nurse, who supposed Mrs. Hill would be officially notified of her boy's death long before tho letter would arrive. But this letter, probably the most pathetic one ever received here, conveyed the first news of tho death to the waiting mother. Hill was reared in this city and shortly before tho war went to Mon tana, where he enlisted in tho first call for volunteers. His father, A. R. Hill, a local drayman, died just a year ago this month.
