Cheyenne, W. Vr., July 28. Colonel
Randall, of the Eigth infantgy, received
a telegram from Washington thia morn
ing stating that the expedition to Alaska
ban been temporarily abaadoned. It
has been discovered that many supplies
necessary for such an undertaking as the
one proposed are not on hand and much
time and expense would be necessitated
to send the soldiers to a country where
the preservation of life depends on
The part of Alaska mapped out to be
visited is said to be rapidly freezing up,
and after serious consideration of all
those facte the trip has been pronounced
injudicious at the time and postponed
probably until spring.

Dyea and Dawson to Re Connected by
Ran Francisco, July 28. The Clon
dyke is promised close communication
with the rest of the world in a short
time. At least a telegraph company has
been incorporated which will set to work
immediately, its promoters say, string
ing the wires. Articles of incorporation
of the Alaska Telegraph & Telephone
Company have been filed with the
county clerk of San Francisco. The
'directors of the new company are C. W.
Wright, Theodore Richert, D.E. Boban
non, J. W. Wright and J. Fassett. The
capital stock of the organization is $250,
000 of which $100,000 has beon sub
scribed by the directors.
The proposition is to construct a tele
graph line which will connect Dyea with
the town of Dawson, the branch lines
connecting Dyea with Juneau, and Daw
eon with Circle City. The estimated
length of the proposed line is 1000 miles.
The plan of construction will be after
the style of military systems used in war
times. A wire a quarter of an inch
thick, covered with a kerite insulation
will be used. The wire will be laid
along the ground, instead of being
stretched on poles. Trees or poles may
be used only to cross a gully.
The promoters of the enterprise ex
pect to get to work laying the wir?s in
three weeks, and to have them laid six
weeks later. The company does not in
tend to have any telegraphic communi
cation south from Juneau, unless some
of the larger companies construct a line
north from Puget sound.

Seattle, Wash., July 28. The City
of Topeka sailed for Juneau this morn
ing with 240 passengers, two-thirds of
whom were miners headed for the Clon
dyke. Of, this number 100 were San
Francisco passengers, who were picked
up at Port Townsend, Forty miners
sailed from Seattle and other Sound
towns completed the list.
The Topeka only goes as far as Juneau
where a transfer will have to be made to
one of the several small boats running
to Dyea. No horses are taken by the
Topeka, the miners expecting to pur
chase them at Juneau or Dyea.
Over 1000 people have already left
Seattle for the Clondyke, and each train
brings men troui Cripple Creek, Ross
land and other mining towns bound for

Pittsburg Conference Promises to Be a
Pittsburg, Pa., July 28. The second
day's session of the uniformity confer
ence was an hour late in opening. A
list of those who participated in the
meeting yesterday shows that 85 rail
road and river mines were represented.
The progress made yeEterday and today
was eo slow that the indications are it
will be several weeks before an agree
ment satisfactory to 95 per cent of the
operators, necessary before the -'true
uniformity" can become an established
fact, is reached.
The operators are rather dazed at the
second attempt to put this particular
doctrine in practice. AH admit that it
is a fact, but they add that is impossible
of accomplishment because it is too fair.
The refusal of the river operators to
become identified with the uniformity
movement presents a new obstacle in
the way of progress. Without their aid,
the required 95 per cant cannot be ac
complished. When Chairman Dempster called the
meeting to order there were almost as
many operators present as yesterday.
Among those conspicious for their ab
sence was Colonel Rend, who yesterday
bolted the conference. It was hoped
that he would reconsider his action and
attend the conference, but he did not
put in an appearance. Chairman Demp
ster announced that the preamble had
already been adopted. J. B. Zerbe said
the matters under consideration were of
the utmost importance, and it would
take months to settle them. D. D.
Blackburn, of the river operators, bad
not yet taken action on the uniformity
question. Wilson moved that the con
vention go into a committee of the
whole to consider the agreement. J. H.
Zerbe was called to the chair, and
Dempster moved that the agreement be
taken up seriatim. Zerbe read the pre
amble, and a motion was made to adopt
A DENIAL BY MARQUIS ITO.
Japanese Diplomat Has Not Indulged
In Warlike Talk.
Nfw Yobk, July 28. A dispatch to
the Herald from Paris says :
If war should break out between the
United States and Japan it will be in
spite of Marquis Ito, personally as well
"In the first place," said Marquis Ito,
"I wish you would contradict a state
ment that I am here charged with an
official mission to strongly protest
in the name of my government against
the unsurpation fraught with peril.
you send three or more
yellow tickets to Schil
ling's Best Tea, San

charming 1898 calendar

whether you guess the miss
ing word or not.
Rules of contest published in large
advertisement about the first and middle

Nothing could be further from the truth.
The statement is inexact in every par
ticular. Not oply have I no official
mission in. Europe now, but I never had
any, nor was I ever charged with such
duties by the Japanese government. I
believe firmly that the Hawaiian ques
tion will be settled without the peaceful
relations between the Japan and the
United States being disturbed in the
"I came to Europe as one of the suite
attached to Prince Arishgawa, who rep
resented the emperor at the jubilee
ceremonies in England. The commem
oration being over, the prince has re
turned to 'Japan, and my duties, only
nominal at any time, are now entirely
at an end. So I am at liberty to avail
myself of the permission the emperor
accorded me to take a holiday in Europe.
"Jt has been stated that I have been
in Spain to arrange teams for mutual
support iu the attitude of Spain and
Japan vis-a-vis the United State. This
is quite untrue. When I was prime
minister the emperor bestowed an order
on the king of Spain. The insignia was
never sent, as it was not convenient at
the time for any one of sufficiently high
rank to leave Japan, But the visit of
Prince Arishgawa to Europe gave the
emperor an occasion he has been look
ing for, and eo, taking advantage of the
opportunity, the prince went to Spain to
present the order to the king, and I, as
a matter of course, went also.
"But, although I met the foreign
minister and all other ministers, the
relation of Japan and America were
never alluded to, and I never broached
the subject of Spain's difficulty in Cuba.
My visit to the Due de Mandas was only
prompted by politeness and was an ac
knowledgment of the courtesy he be
stowed on me at San Sebastian.
"I do not think it possible any opposi
tion manifested in Japan to the annexa
tion of the Sandwich islands by the
United States will take any morejextend
ed form than the mere protest made
remember this point made in order
that the interests of Japan in those
islandB may not suffer injury.
"Japan is simply seeking to protect
herself and her subjects, and this she
has a perfect right to do; this she is in
duty bound to do ; but that she will look
after her interests in other than a digni
fied, diplomatic way is absurd. The
emperor, I know, will not support any
bellicose policy. All my friends in the
ministry or in the control of the differ
ent branches of the government are of
the same mind as the emperor on this
subject, and Japanese sentiment is one
ot strong friendship for the United
States. Thus the Hawaiian question
cannot possibly bring about a conflict,
either armed or diplomatic, with the
Americans, in spite of the jingoes."

Wheeling Labor Leaders Criticise
Action of Yesterday's Conference.
Wheeling, W. V., July 28. Among
the local labor leaders there is a general
disappointment that the conference held
here did not take more radical measure
than to merely offer sentimental sym
pathy, with no financial aid to strikers.
It is believed this week there will be
such an army of organizers and agitators
in West Virginia that the miners who
have thus far refused to stop work will
be compelled to do so from sheer force
of number against them.
It is also believed the conference made
secret provisions for conducting the tight
on lines muce more emphatic than are
apparent in the manifesto given to the
papers. It is believed that a surprise
,will be sprung within a few days.
