WILL NOT BE BARRED
Alaska Military Reservation
Open to All Comers.
REPLY OF SECRETARY ALGER
Any Company May Operate at St.
Jtllchael. Upon Obtaining the
War Department's Consent.
Washington, Oct.' 28. Senator Mc
Bride, of Oregon, saw the secretary of
war and the president today regarding
the report that the new military reserva
tion in Alaska would create a monopoly
for the two transportation companies
now operating between that territory
and points in the United States. He
was assured there was no such intention
in the order ; that no one would be ex
cluded from the territory or prevented
from engaging in any business on the
reservation. Secretary Alger said he
would telegraph the chamber of com
merce of Tacoma to that effect. The
intention of the order was 6olely that of
protecting life and property in the terri
tory, and any company or person enter
ing the territory would be given the
same rights and privileges allowed com
panies or persons already, operating
Senator McBride said he had no doubt
there would be no trouble for any
persons operating in Alaska, and the
assurances of the president and secretary
were sufficient to quiet all apprehen
sions that might be felt either in Oregon
The first formal protest against the
creation of St. Michaels military reser
vation reached the war department from
Tacoma as follows :
"Hon. Secretary of War We ask for
a reconsideration of your order setting
apart a military reservation at St.
Michaels, believing that should it stand
it must work to the detriment of thou
sands of our citizens and give a mon
opoly to the two companies now located
"Citizens' Committee, Tacoma,
"By George Brown, Secretary."
Secretary Alger made the following
"Telegram received. ' The military
reservation at St. Michaels was estab
lished in the interests of the security of
life and property, the preservation of
order and the protection of legitimate
business interests. No monopoly was
given or intended to any company or
persons. Any proper company or.
person who desires to conduct a legiti
mate business there will, on application
to the war department, be given per
mission to do so."
NEMESIS ON HIS TRACK.
Trouble Probably Ahead for Wejler
v the Recalcitrant.
New York, Oct. 28. A dispatch to
th,e Herald from Havana says :
General Weyler has been ordered by
his government in Madrid to remain in
Havana until General Blanco arrives.
This may mean that Weyler is to be
eent home under arrest for refusing to
obey the order to give his command to
General Castellanos. General Weyler
wanted to sail two days before General
Blanco could reach Havana.
General Castellanos, . in the face of
General Weyler's resistance, was abso
lately helpless so far as assaming com
mand was concerned, but be sent a
special messenger to Key West and tele
graphed the whole situation from there
to his government. It is owing to this
discussion that General Weyler has been
told to wait for General Blanco.
General Weyler is using every means

the stability of Spain in Cuba. If he

there is not serious trouble it will be
because Senor Sagasta and his ministers
bend their knees to General Weyler, for
the indication is that Weyler will not
submit quietly to them.
That the Spanish government antici
pates a disturbance is evinced by the
fact that it has telegraphed to General
Weyler to diBband the volunteer forces.
This morning the captain-general called
to the palace the colonels and read them
a telegram from Minister of the Colonies
Moret, stating that the services of the
volunteers would not be longer required,
and that they were to be disarmed.
After an excited consultation the
colonels agree to send a considerable
dispatch to Senor Moret expressing
their indignation and stating that they
would not be responsible for the actions
of the men if the news was conveyed to

say there is stiil hope that the Belve

they were inclosed by floes or their
bones would before spring be drifting in

drive the ice back from the land, would
save them, and at this season of the
year such' winds are very rare in the

thought that they, too, have been caught
in the ice.
There are no supplies of any kind at
the Point Barrow station for the frozen

THE MAN WHO BOARDS.
Some Thing That Hake Him Con
template Matrimony, j.- - -
The troubles of a man who ftotrla
begin with A and end with Z and be
tween is a pandora box full of difficul
ties. Now there is the question of towels;
Jones is decent enough to take a bath
at irregular intervals of some 24 hours
and has some fine, large 'altogether"
bath towels which he intends shall
cheer but not irritate after he rises,
dripping like a mermaid or a half
drowned cat-, from the chill morning
tub. But they disappear and in their
place he finds some heavy pocket hand
kerchiefs, with large holes in them,
which he ascertains are-sufficient to dry
him down to the third float ing rib when
he uses extraordinary prudence and the
remote and fringy corners. Otherwise
he must start the day feeling as though
he was in a heavy perspiration. It dis
courages the aquatic duty of a citizen.
Then there is the matter of matches.
This is a small but at times a burning
question. When a man comes in tired,
puts on slippers and gets out the light
est novel on his shelves and snuggles
down in a big chair for a long, quiet
evening and a pipe, and carelessly
reaching for the match safe finds it
empty, he sits for a moment in a fever
ish frame of mind. Then he rises sol
emnly and goes down three flights of
stairs for matches, but finds the box is
empty and the landlady gone to bed.
In the darkness of the lower hall,
alone with some dozen vicious rocking
chairs clustered around his unprotected
ankles, he murmurs a blessing on the
lady and her assistant and laboriously
ascends to search the bathroom. Foiled
there he prowls into another's room,
which he finds has a new and feminine
occupant and precipitately retires, feel
ing that worst of, anguish humilia
tion. He cusses the pipe and throws the
book into a corner, and the lamp then
displays a fading tendency.
. Grim, haggard, furious, he stands
watching the glow turn a sickly pallor
and flicker, then burn in a ring of
smudgy fire at the wick. He remem
bers that he has asked the chamber
maid :it four different and fervid times
to keep that lamp full of oil and even
slipped a quarter into her hand hoping
it would work a change. Again is he in
the darkness and all the evil that is in
his nature (or has been instilled there
by having to eat v.armed-over rare
roast beef under the 'guise of steak)
seethes in his chest.
Some of the troubles are small, like
the piece of chicken at the Sunday din
ner, and there are others which are
great and vast like the Monadnock
block. With Jones one- of these latter
is a difference of opinion respecting the
most convenient, desirable and alto
gether choice location for the wash
stand. He has ' certain preferences
which in his timid, hesitating way he
exhibiLs by putting the stand where he
wants it. . lie takes a proud, complacent
survey of his domsstic domain as he
leaves in the morning. At ryght he re
turns to find that the washstand is oc
cupying another site. He puts it back
and continues doing it for three succes
sive nights and then comes a time
when flesh can bear no more and he
tramps downstairs and demands to se
the chambermaid. '
She is out and he forgets it in the
morning-, but that night his furniture
is in the prim, maddening regularity
which he detests and the maid is ar
raigned. She could not open the ward
robe door, she explains, with the wash
stand where it was. . Open the ward
robe door! What was that girl going
into that place every day for and get
ting his coats white with lint from her
And then Jones goes away and sulks
and meditates matrimony. Chicago
