Lakk Crrr, July 15. The lake

morning with tho thunder of dyna

Nothing now has developed along

tb:.t no more bodies will be found for
two or three days, and the hope of
Lake City is that not over a dozen
more are in the lake, but at Bed Wing
the number is placed at two or three
times that figure.
Cnpt. Wcrthren, who has not been
seen here since yesterday noon, told a
citizen ot Bed Wing thnt tho number
on board at the time oX the disaster
would not exceed 170. A Bed Wing
man denied the captain's lignres as
over thirty below. the trnth and ac
cn.'ed both the captain and the cw
of being drunk and unfit to have
charge at such a time. There is no
proof of such a state of affairs. There
were those on the barge among the
passengers who had been drinking
and who--e actions drove the women
and cluldreu to ihe cabiu. This fact
may be ground for tlie rumor.
Another rumor that caused great
indignation accused the captain of
ordering the cabin door locked and
keeping the poeplo inside. Miss
Aggie Barton of Lake City, one of
those rescued from the barge, says
all tho women and children were
ordered into the cabin from the barge.
It would bo natural for the captain to
do this, as it was intensely dark and
rain and hail made it extremely dis
agreeable to remain on the barge.
On the other hand both engineers
say that the captain thought the
barge safer than the steamer and sent
an order down to the cabin for the
women and children to go on the
barge. Instead of carrjiug the order
correctly the man told them lo stay in
the cabin and locked the door, which
they did. Previous to that most of
the women had left the bargo for the
steamer, telling the engineer that a
party of men on the barge were drunk
and had been acliug in au objection
able maimer and they would not stay
there. Whether this bo fact or not
it is certain that the doors were shut,
if not locked, when rescuers reached
the steamer and everything indicated
that they had been closed throughout

Woman's cw Fad for "Wearing Shirts.
"Bab," tho well known newspaper
corresppudent, is a woman of sense.
She says: 'It was bad enough when
the masculiuo girl assumed tho shirt
and jacket, but now when she takes
off her jacket, switches it over one
arm and walks in her shirt, she needs
a good strong dose ot ihe truth, and
that is, it's neither decent or gentle
manly. She has proven one thing,
however -she has her shirts made
in the received fashion that
closed in the back, with
proper yoke, and buttoned
all tho way down the front. All the
men who object to washerwomen
making ribbons of their shirts are
adopting this plan, because the lady
ot the lather doesn't drag them over
an ironing board three sizes too large
for them and tear them in that way. !
The shirt wearing girl would like to I
impress on with tho fact that she is
economical, but she isn't. IT she had j
been made straight instead of curved,
she might have worn a shirt a day,
but uaturo having rounded her out,
her shirt front breaks, and unless, she ,
wisues to become an awful object, s.ie
demands two shirts a day, and her
laundry bill is something awful."

Sax Fiuxctsco, July 15. A letter
from Capt. Mockler, o tho schooner
JIaitie L. Dyer, seized at Ounalaska,
has been received lately. The captain
says that nothing had been done at
the time oE writing, as the officer was
waiting for the cutter to get his in
structions. Tho officer in charge oE
the seizure tried to get the crew to
swear that the schooner had caught
seals, but this they'refnsed to do. It was
not customary to carry n copy of a
bond, for lack of which the schooner
was seized, unless arms were landed
in Alaska. All the captains in port
declare that the deputy collector had
gone too far in tho case.
Ho is a newman theie, having come
from Sitka. The captain says he
does not see where they have a chance
to do anything with the schooner, as
a hunter he took on board at Sanak
named George Anderson could prove
where the last seals were caught by
the schooner, and his word must be
taken, as he is not on the articles and
is the only passenger. He will be able
to swear that no seals were taken in
Behring sea and none less than thirty
miles off the shore in the Pacific
