Edwin' Hofstad, a mining man, of
Alaska, tyho has been spending several
days in Portland, has left for his far
Northern home to continue work on
his claim ou the shores of the famous
"gpld lake," near Sitka. This myste
rious lake was known to the early
Russian settlers In Alaska, but was
Jealously guarded by the czar's officials
and but little of the gold was taken
out ' . According to the traditions of
Sitka, several enterprising miners in
early days established a camp near the
lake and secretly mined a quantity of
the precious metal, which they dis
posed ofin Sitka, but they paid dearly
for their venture, being arrested and
imprisoned for long terms in a Russian
prison. Miners paid no more atten
tion to the lake until after the Seward
purchase, and then the location of the
mlafis was forgotten. -;
Otlate years, Alaskan adventurers
Have been industrious in searching for i
the Eldorado, but their efforts were
never rewarded with success. It re
mained for Mr. Hofstad, who is con-
ted with the Sitka custom house,
to find the wonderful lake. An aged
Kussiau shoemaker of the town put
him on the right track, but it was only
after weeks of exploration that be bit
upon the spot. The shoemaker's sole
guide.' was the knowledge that the
"gold lake" lay immediately beyond
another lake of similar size, and that
both were within 12 miles of Sitka.
When Mr. Hofstad was assured of the
value of his.find, he returned to civi
lization j aud bonded a half-interest In
the miue to an eastern syndicate. The
gold is washed with little trouble from
the sands on the shore of the lake, and
assays all the way from $1.25 to $25
per cubic yard, according to Mr. Hof
stad. This, it will be seen, is exceed
ingly rich, when it is rtmembered lhat
the beat California hydraulic mines
pay but a few cents per cubio yard.
During Mr. Hofstad's slay In Portland
he became ' engaged to Miss Andrea
Niiseu, of this city, and the young
miner will return to Portland early in
April and be married.

A Human Vampire.
From the Sunday Oregonian.
From out the wilds nf Montana
comes a strange story of n human vam
pire, who seeks, slays aud drains the
blood out of the cattle, especially young
calves. Like the man-eating tiger,
this strange being does not lacerate his
victims, his only object seemingly be
ing to suck their blood.
Equally strange is Hie story current
In the region infested by the monster.
It Is related lhat the man is an -sca;ied
lunatic, whose delusion is that he is a
vampire and that his mission is to de
stroy animal life by draining the
blood of all the victims bis cunning or
strength may place in his hands. Car
casses of cattle ai d sheep have been
found, but in no instance have they
been disturbed beyond the slitting of
The wild man, for he has been seen,
Is of superhuman strength, as there is
evidence that he has caught and borne
heavy steers to the ground unaided
and has torn open the throat with bis
fingers or teeth. He is said to be over
six feet, of athletic build, and colored
as darkly as an Indian, because of the
exposure to the elements.' He is en
tirely naked, and possessed of marvel
A cowboy on one of the ranches says
he was awaiting the arrival of several
of his party, from whom he bad been
separated for some time, and was rest
ing himself by leaning up against the
side of his horse. Suddenly he was
seized from behind and thrown to the
ground with such- force as to almost
deprive him of his senses.
A hand-to-hand struggle followed.
The cowboy managed (o hold out till
the arrival of his companions, ..who
were much closer than he bad any
reason to suppose. As soon as the
lunatic caught sight of the other cow
boys he made a savage bite at the pros
trate man's ear aud fled, the bullets
from the guns of the party following
him. So far as known, the madman
was unhurt by the lead.
The vampire was first seen about a
year ago, but when the story was told
at that time there were few people who
believed it, nearly all discussing the
story as the creation of some one who
desired to start a sensation.
Three Prisoners Escape From Jail. ,
Three very bad men, Con Kelliher,
Mike O'Brien aud Frank Sands, in
jail for burglary and larceny, managed
to make their escape from the Multno
mah county jail in the most mysteri
ous manner, some time betweeu 7
o'clock Friday evening aud 8:15 Satur
day morning. Keliher and Sands were
locked up in the north corridor, and
O'Biien In a steel cell adjoining. The
inexplicable phase of this escape is
that when the jailer unlocked the cor
ridors Saturday morning, the looks
were in good condition, and in fact
there was no evidence that they had in
any way been tampered with. The
absence of the three thugs became
kuown only when breakfast was being
served. None of the other prisoners
professed knowing anything about the
manner in which the escape was er
fected. It is believed that they used skeleton
keys, lielllher had just been sen
tenced to the penitentiary lor 10 years

queer organization to fight a trust haa
been formed here. The name of the
concern Is the Allegan County Coffin
and Casket Co-operative Manufactur

df the stockholders are old men who
have an idea they are' being robbed in
paying from $40 to $70 for a casket, and
they propose to turn out ust as good
an article for $20 at the outside. All
(be capital stock is paid in and if the
trust dealers refuse to handle the out
put of the new concern they will sell
coffins by agents. Burials will be
cheap if the new concern has its way."
