Port Townsend, Dec. 28.— John
Lindsay, uf Olympia, Wash., who has
just arrived here from Dawson, says
that there will surely he starvation
there this winter.
Jfe examined into the food situation
in a thorough manner, lie says, and
after satisfying himself that there
would he starvation, he sold his outfit
and, in company with Frank Hailaiue,

on foot, each man drawing a sled carry

Dawson refused to go down to the
camp, preferring to remain in Dawson.
Not more t Inin 800 or 4U0 people took
advantage of the trunaportat ion com
pany’s offer to take the people to Fort
Yukon free o f charge.
When the miners at Dawson found
that no more provisions would reach
the town by the river route, they an
nounced that a meeting would be held
to take steps for an apportioning of tho
provisions in the town. Those that
had plenty, they said, must share w ith
those who had not.

Aitan eivdence of the scarcity of food

Van Hants is an elderly man, und lie

offered a gold watch for a sack of
flour. He could not get it, and he re
marked to Lindsay:
“ God only knows how I am to keep

Stewart river, and 40 miles from Daw -

developed this winter. The Weather
about the Stewart and Big Sainton
rivers has been bitterly cold, 70 degrees
below aero being recorded at Major
Walsh’ s camp, 12 miles below the Big
Salmon, on November 17.
The Yukon river between Dawson and
Fort P el'v, froze completely over No
vember 18. The river is piled full of
ice it; great ridges, as high as an ordi
nary house, and a roadway will have
to he cut through it before the dog or
horse teams can operate upon it. The
outlook, therefore, for taking supplies
down to Dawson in the immediate fu
ture is not good.
Inspector of Minos McGregor left

teams and horses to make the attempt
to reach Dawson with atiout 20 tons of
provisions, hut nothing has since been

Washington,Pe ‘.24.— It is understood

China were regarded as sufficient to
warrant any active step by this govern
From what source the inquiries have
come is not disclosed.
If from Great
Britain, they must have oorne through
Colonel Hay. the American ambassador,
as the British officials here have re

It is well understood, however, that
Great Britain would look with favor on
any active step by the United States
which would serve as a check for the
advances of Germany and Russia. The
British interests in China are ten times
greater than those of Germany, Russia
and the United States, and yet, with
Germany and Russia fit inly located on
Chinese soil. Great Britain is left in a
sort of cul de sac. It is known also
that the Chinese authorities would wel
come a movement by tho United States,
and that this lias been communicated
to officials here.
Althrough these soundings, (or they
amount to nothing more as. yet, have
not taken official form, they iiave been
sufficient to gain a pretty general un
derstanding as to the attitude of this
This, in brief, is that
the United States lias no interest in

to Maintain the Integrity
o f Their Lawn.
New York, Dec. 24.— T. Esfra«la
Palma, of tiie Cuban junta, made the
following statement last night:
“ Tl le death of Colonel Ruiz did not
occur ns tiie Spanish have put it, while
lie was negotiating as a peace messen
ger under a flag of truce. Again and
again have tiie Cubans promulgated a
law that all who came to them with
peace propositions not based on tiie in
dependence of Cuba, should he treated
as spies and be dealt with accordingly.
Colonel Rniz knew of the existence of
tiie law, and according to tiie Spanish
accounts was personally warped as to
-‘ ‘ General Blanco and Secretary-Gen
eral Congosto, too, were well aware of
tiie existence of the decree. Neverthe-
'ess, these latter took advantage of tiie
mforturiate Quixotism of Colonel Ruiz
and sent him to the Cuban lines. The
blood of Colonel Ruiz is not on the
hands of tiie Cubans, hut upon the
Heads of Blanco and Congosto, who
lent him to his fate. If tiie oenelty of
the law had not been i.,rried into
•Beet, doubtless Spain would have
taken advantage of tho fact to show
that the Cubans were not in earnest in
their rejection of autonomy absolutely,
hut were willing to listen to arguments.
“ This decree was not promulgated
because Cubans are afraid o f disaffec
tion in tiieir ranks, hut because it is
known that innumerable commission
ers would otherwise lie sent, and on
their return make false statements, rn-
luiiiaging the belief that peace might
lie established on a basis other than in-
Snell statements would
only serve tiie interests of Spain in
gaining time with tiie resulting death
if thousands, owing to the useless pro
longation of the war.
“ Beffdes, tho Cubans are advised
that the Spanish are seeking to enter
tho insurgent lines with tiie purpose of
assassinating tiie more important lead
ers. Documentary proof of this fact is
it: our hands and we are tiie more can-

G moral Blanco authorized General
Folavieja, in Santiago de Cuba, to ex
ecute an many unarmed Cubans as the
latter thought necessary as an example.
“ It is somewhat remarkable that
with tho first news of thedeatb of Ruiz
came the announcement of the killing
of over 40 insurgents found in a hos
pital, and not a voice was raised to pro
test thereat. The shooting of Cuban

on the Warpath.
Chicago, Dec. 23. — A special to the
Ti men-Hera Id from Washington says:
Trouble in the Indian territory is ex
pected by tiie commissioner of Indian
affairs and by others who are familiar
with the condition of affairs there. On
January 1 tiie tribal courts will he
abolished by an act passed at the last
session of congress, and the United
States courts given full jurisdiction
over the territory. In many quarters
tiie officers of the Indian ‘oouita have
delared that they will forcibly resist all
efforts to prevent them from doing
business. Tiie United States marshals
have given notice that any tribal courts
attempting to sit, and those assuming
to conduct them will be arrested.
A delegation of eight Ohergkees,
seven of them full-bloods, is now in
the city. A few» days ago they pre
sented a memorial to caagress asking
that the law he rescinded, but congress
has now adjourned without action, and
when it again convenes the Indian
courtH will he out of existence.
Meanwhile tiie subcommittee of the
senate committee on Indian affairs,
appointed to consider the problem pre-
sented in tiie territory, practically de
cided to recommend an amendment to
ttie law applying to tiie apportionment
of all lands held by tiie five civilized
tribes among tiie members of these
tribes, and also an amendment pro
viding that all valid leases shall bo
recognized by tiie government of tiie
United States and the money paid on
account of them covered into tiie treas
ury of the United States for the benefit
of the various tribes.
The Dawes commission has reported
its failure to oome to any conclusion
with tiie Indians. Such agreements
as Iiave been concluded vary so in their
provisions, that, in view of the fact
that eventually a uniform system of
government must ho provided for In
territory, it is
whether any of the agreements should
lie definitely ratified by congress until
the desired and necessary uniformity
can lie reached.
Secretary Bliss thinks no government
will be satisfactory until congress shall
provide for a single uniform system of
laws for tiie Indian territory tiiat shall
place all its inhabitants in possession
of tiie rights of American citizenship.
