Sax Fbaxcisco, Sept. 21. A letter
from Crater lake, Alaska, dated Septem

A thousand men toiled all of yesterday
in a blinding storm of snow and sleet
on the summit of Chilcoot pass. The
blizzard lasted' from daylight till dark.
T. C. Willard, of Butte, Mont., fell
from the rocks at a point half way be
tween the summit and Crater lake, and
fractured a bone in bis left forearm. A
physician set the limb and Willard
pluckily continued across toward Lake
An Indian at Dyea said a few days
ago that Chilcoot pasa would probably
be blockaded by snow about the 25th.
He said that miners fortunate enough to
have their supplies across the summit
before that time can reach Dawson.
The rivers he claims will keep open until
late in November, although the lakes
will probably be frozen in six weeks.
Ten days ago the ludians charged 32
cents a pound for packing from Dyea to I

Cincinnati. Sept. 21. The Enquirer's
special from Xenia says :
A carrier pigeon has been found by B.
Scon well in his barnyard near here. The

gave evidence of a long flight. A silver
band was fastened around the bird's leg
on which was engraved some words and
letters which were so worn and rusted

. PREACHERS ARK INDIGNANT.
Sunday Work in the Chicago Federal
Hutldiug Displeases Then.
Chicago, Sept. 21. Presbyterian min
isters of Chicago are indignant over the
fact that the work of excavating for the
foundation of the new federal building
at Clark and Jackson streets is being
prosecuted on Sunday. At the weekly
meeting of the Presbyterian Ministers'
Association resolutions were passed and
copies forwarded to President McKinley
and Secretary Gage, expressing regret
that the Christian Sabbath is being
violated by the building of the new
postoffice and custom-house, and re
questing that officers having the build
ing in charge order that the law of God
be obeyed and all labor on or connected
with the construction of said postoffice
be suspended on the Christian Sabbath.
The ministers are confident that the
federal authorities will act favorably on

MINERS' STRIKE ENDED.
Work Being Gradually Resumed at
Washington, Sept. 21. M. D. Ratch
ford, president of the United Mine
Workers of America, who is here to
attend a epecial meeting of the officers
of the Federation of Labor, gives the
following statement . to the Associated
Press today :
"Today will see about 75,000 miners
resume work in the bituminous coal
fields of the Central states. The strike
generally ends today. The mining situa
tion is not likely to become disturbed
again until the beginning of next year,
at which time we hope to be able to
settle the wage differences amicably anct
without the necessity of striking.
"Of course the victory is not altogether
one of -the miners. While they have
done the striking, the trades unions and
organized bodies have supplied the
necessaries, without which the miners
could not have possibly succeeded. It
is a victory for organized labor and not
tor any particular trade, and we want
our friends who have helped us to feel
that it's their victory as well as ours."
MURDER IS THE CHARGE.
Sheriff Martin and Forty Deputies Held
Wilkessbarre, Pa., Sept. 21. Sheriff
Martin and about 40 of bis deputies
were arraigned in court this morning,
charged with the murder of 21 striking
miners at Lattimer. Several witnesses
testified. The judge held the sheriff and
deputies in $4000 bail, each for trial.
Bail was furnished and they returned to
FREIGHT SUBJECT TO DELAY.
Effect of Fever Quarantine on the Rail
Kansas City, Sept. 21. Kansas City
railroads having outlets at Gulf ports
are notifying shippers that freight for
Gulf points will be accepted subject to
delay only. This is due to yellow fever
quarantine which is now being rigidly
enforced, freight as well as passenger
trains being subject to the rule.
There is every indication that the big
grain crop of the Southwest, which has
begun to move in great quantities to the
Gulf ports, will be driven back to the
Atlantic ports, from which it has been
largely diverted, owing to the activity of
the Gulf railroads.
No Alarm at Chicago.
Chicago, Sept. 21. The report that
two cases of yellow fever have been dis
covered at Cairo, 111., has not alarmed
Chicago health officials. Health Com
missioner Reynolds doubts if the cases
at Cairo are yellow fever, and believes
they are either malaria or "Breakbone"
fever. He has no intention of rescind
ing his proclamation, welcoming South
ern refugees to Chicago.
