LETTERS FROM F G JACKSOI";
The Map. Entirely Alter the Geography
of Franz Josef Land New Sea Found
Where Land Had Been . Shown
London, Sept. 9. Henry Fisher
botanical curator to the university ool
lege museum, Nottingham, and th.
botanist of the Jackson and Harin
worth Arotio expedition, now entering
on its geoond winter on Franz Jose'
Land, reached Grave jend on Saturday
with four companions of the expedi
tion by the supply steamer Windward
The vessel landed Dr. Nansen, tht
Norwegian explorer, at Vardoe island
in the northern part of Norway.
In an Interview Mr. Fisher furnished
further details of the meeting of the
two parties on the ice, and a letter
from F. G. Jaokson, just reoeived.
throws additional light upon the most
interesting chapter in northern explora
tion history. Mr. Jackson's letter is
addressed to A. C. Harmsworth, and
continues the story. He wrote:
"Hearing that some one had been
seen on the ice, I started to meet him
I saw a man on the pack ioe southeast
of Cape Flora, and a seoond person
' "I fired several Bhots to attraot their
attention, and after an hour's walk,
met the man in a walrus skin, and con
cluded he was a Norweigan walrue
hunter, who had come to grief some
where. Approaching nearer we no
ticed that he was as black as a stoker,
and that from head to foot his clothes
were oovered with grease. We shook
hands. In spite of his long black
hair and smoke-black skin, I thought
he was Dr. Nansen, whom I had known
in London, so I exclaimed: .
" 'Are you not Dr. Nansen?'
" 'Yes, I am Nansen,' washis reply.
"Then we again shook hands, still
more heartily. When we reaohed
headquarters it was midnight, bat an
light as noon. After Dr. Nansen and
his oompanion (Lieutenant Schott
Hansen) had a bath, were shaved and
had their hair out, our photographer
took their pictures, and they dined
with us. Our dinner was" a great suo
cess. "To Dr. Nansen'a astonishment we
had roast loon, peas and other vege
tables, cheese, preserevd fruits antf
pork, sherry and whiskey."
Mr. Jackson also sent by the Win?'
ward a resume of his diary kept during
the past year, and maps of his owe
making, whioh entirely alter the geo
graphy of Franz Josef Land. , He has
discovered a great sea where the map of
Payer," the Australian explorer, shows
land. This sea, which Jackson hae
named Queen Victoria sea, he thinks
extends without a break from about
seventy miles north of his winter
quarters to within three degrees - of
the pole, and is considered by far the
most important body of water yet dis
covered in those parts. Mr. Jaoskon
"A long channel, through whioh
we passed, from Tisto to Queen Vic
toria sea, I named the Birtish channel.
Its chief arms are Clements Markham
channel, Allen Young sound and Rob
ert Feel sound. To this sea I look as
my most favorable route in 1897,
when the sun returns in the spring.
"The mapping of Franz Josef Land
is practically complete, and nothing
should prevent my attempting its open
water or crust of ice, as the case may
be. I gave Dr. Nansen traoing of my
map and his route south. As his
watoh ran down, he was unable to es
tablish his position oorrectly. Until
he saw my map of lasjt year, he sup
posed that no one had been there before
AN INDIAN COMMISSION.
To Treat With the lted Men In the
Washington, Sept. 9. A most im
porant Indian commission has been
created to negotiate with the Indians in
the far Northwest, and is , now in the
.field. The commission consists of
three members,' only two of whom
have been appointed so far. These are
John B. Goodwin, of Atlanta, and
Charles B. Herit, of Benton, Neb.
Another selection has been made but
the offer was declined. The commis
sion will treat with the Crow and
Flathead Indians in Montanta for the
cession of portions of their respective
reservations, and with the Northern
Cheyennes and Crow Indians for the re
moval of the Northern Cheyenues from
their present reservaiotn on the Rose
bud river at Lame Deer agency to the
southern portion of the Crow reserva
tion. Negotiations will be carried on
with the Indians on the Fort Hall res
ervation " in Idaho and those on the
Unitah reservation in Utah, with a
view to the surrender of portions of
their respective reservations or for some
satisfactory modification of existing
treaties. Similar efforts will be made
with the Yakima Indians in Washing

TO DESTROY KEY WEST.
An Improbable Story Brought From
Key West, Sept. 9. A letter was re
ceived from Havana last night by the
steamer Masootte containing the in
formation that the Spanish authorities
are plotting the destruction of Key
West. A similar report reached here
several days ago, but at the time it
was not generally believed. The letter
was written by a Cuban in Havana to
a friend in this city. The writer says
that a few days ago he wont to the
government office in Havana and was
informed by a friend employed there
that Spanish authorities had determined
to burn Key West and annihilate tha
nest of "insurgent snakes. " ' .
. The plan of the Spanish is to send
emissaries to Key West in the guise
of Cuban sympathizers, who are to fire
the city in as many places as possible
when opportunity arises. It is said
that Captain-General Weyler is cog
nizant? of the plan and approves of it.
He is rpeorted to have said that if Key
West and Tampa were laid in ashes he
would soon be able to settle the rebel
lion. It is said that in the event of the
success of the plot Weyler has ordered
that the emissaries be paid f 10,000,
The people here are so wrought up
that it is feared an attack may be made
on Senor Gruse, the Spanish consul
and his assistant, Senor Hernandez.
It was reported today that these gentle
men, beooming alarmed for their
safety, had gone aboard the United
States revenue cutter Winona and de
manded protection, and that they were
told to remain on the vessel until the
exoitement died out. .
The citizens have determined to form
a vigilance committee, and every per
son who cannot give a good account of
himself will be forced to leave , the
THE RELAY ' RACE ENDED.
The Time Was a Little Over Thirteen
New York, Sept. 9. The Examiner
Journal bioyole relay race from San
Franoisoo to New York was finished at
City Hall park at 29 minutes -past 3
o'clock this afternoon, the race taking
thfrteen days 29 minutes 4 1-5 seconds.
The number of miles oovered was
8,885. The' last relay from Kings
bridge to the finish was run by Fred
erick J. Titus, the well-known racing
man, who wheeled his part in 29
minutes and 13 seconds.
All along the'line from Kings bridge
was a great crowd gathered to greet
Titus. He was' heartily welcomed,
and vociferously cheered. Following
after him were many others, and the
upper drives were thronged with en
thusiastic wheelmen. Four thousand
persons were in City Hall Park when
Titus "reaohed the end of the journey,
and their ' oheers were deafening.
Annie St Tell and A. H. Ward will go
from the Battery to Governor's island

The Usual Majority for the Democratio
Little Rock, Sept, 9. The weather
throughout Arkansas was cool and
pleasant, and, from special dispatches
received by the Gazette, the indica
tions are that a large vote was polled.
It is believed .that General Dan W.
Jones' (Dem.) majority for governor
will be not less than 60,000 and may
possibly reach 60,000. In Faulkner,
Lafayette and other Populist and Re
publican strongholds, the Demooratie
oounty tickets were elected by safe ma
jorities. There was much scratching
in Fulton county, and the probability
is that the independent candiate for
state senator in that distriot has carried
the county against Hon. Jerry South,
the regular Democratio nominee.
There were but two full tickets in
the field, the Populists contenting
themselves with a candidate for gov
Encounter With a Footpad.
San Franoisoo, Sept. - 9. Mrs. Sarah
Hayden, the wife of a Ninth-street
butcher, had a thrilling encounter with
an armed highwayman early yesterday
morning. Her husband being unwell,
she paid off the employes and left the
store shortly after midnight, carrying
a small satchel in whioh she had
placed $110 and accompanied by. her
12-year-old daughter, started home
ward. While standing on the corner
waiting for a car, a man poked a pitsol
into her face and commanded her to
give up the satchel. She screamed for
help and two men rushed to her as
sistance, but were threatened by the
ruffian and kept aloof. An officer ar
riving at this juncture, the robber fled
aoross some vacant lots and escaped.

BAHDIT8-. WERE OUTWITTED
Bold-Attempt to Hold up a
: Train Near Sacramento.
FRUSTRATED BY THE ENGINEER
Watching His Chance, He Shot the
Bobber in the Cab, and Then Pulled
Open the Throttle and Escaped.
Sacramento, Cal., Sept. 5. The
east-bound overland tram, which left
San Franoisco at 6 o'olock this evening,
and waa here at 9:40, was stopped
about six miles west of here by train
robbers, who failed in their purpose
through the killing of one of the gang
by a plucky engineer. The train was
loaded with passengers en route, to the
state fair, and it is said that the ex
press oontained a large sum of money
consigned to a Sacramento bank.
The hold-up took plaoe a short dis
tance from the place where the big
150,000 robbery occurred two years
ago. The oountry is oovered with wa
ter for miles, with the exception of a
narrow strip over whioh a wagon road
runs to Woodland, and within an hour
.after the train pulled into Sacramento
a force of detectives and a squad of
deputies were dispatched to the scene.
Tonight the big passenger depot is a
scene of the greatest animation. Div
ision Superintendent Wright, who was
a passenger on the train, is in his office
giving orders and awaiting news from
the men who have been sent to bunt
, The Overland train left Davisville
on time, with Engineer Edwin F. In
galls and Fireman Patrick Burns in
the cab. As the train approached
Webster, a man who had been conceal
ed in the tender climbed quietly over
the pile of coal until he reached the
gangplank, .when he suddenly leveled
a pistol at ' the engineer and ordered
him to throw up his hands. The en
gineer did so, and the robber then told
him to slow down. This request was
also complied with, and when the train
was stopped,' at a third order from the
robber, a masked man was seen climb
ing up the railroad embankment with
a gun in his hand. When the man
appeared, the robber on the engine com
manded the fireman to climb down and
go with the masked robber. The fire
man obeyed orders, and he and the
bandit walked back toward the express
This left Engineer Ingalls and the
other bandit alone, and Ingalls began
to think up a scheme whereby he could
turn the tables on his captor. The rob
ber at first was very watchful, but af
ter a minute or more had elapsed, he
turned and looked back, with the evi
dent intention of seeing what had be
icome of his companion and the fireman.
This was Ingall's chance and he
(seized it. A loaded revolver was lying
in a box close to Ingall's side. Qaick
as a flash he lifted the lid, and, seizing
the pistol, fired two shots at the rob
ber. The bandit fell from the cab,
and the nervy engineer pulled wide the
'throttle, and the train started to Sacra
mento. Fireman Burns was left to his
fate, but when he heard the firing, he
suspected what was up, and jumped
onto the moving train. The masked
robber who was on the platform of the
express jumped to the ground and dis
appeared. On arriving at Sacramento Engineer
Ingalls told his story to Superintend
ent Wright. After relating the par
ticulars of the hold-up and the depar
ture of the fireman with the masked
robber, he said:
"I noticed that the fellow who was
guarding me was rather nervous. He
would turn every once in a while and
glanoe back to see how things were
going along. Seeing that there might
be a chance for me to get hold of my
revolver, whioh was in a box in the
cab, I determined to try it, and the
jnext time the robber turned I opened
the box and got the pistol. I was not
a moment too soon, for just as he
looked around I fired twice. The
muzzle of my pistol waa not more than
two feet from him when I pulled the
trigger, and I am confident that I
fetruok him in the head and breast, and
certainly must have killed him. He
reeled forward and plunged out of the
cab, firing. his pistol as he did so. Not
knowing how many there might be of
the robbera I determined to get away,,
and within fifteen seconds after I had
shot the robber I had opened the throt
tle and was on the way to Saoramento.
Fireman Burns said in telling his
"The robber ordered me to. get down
off the engine and go with the masked
man, which I did. The masked man
then instructed me to go ahead, but
halted me at the express car. 'Get be
tween there and uncouple, ' said the
masked man in a business-like way. I
climbed up between the cars, but just
then I heard two qtiiok shots, and
after a few seconds, the train began to
move. I drew myself up on the bump
era and the robber, who had taken up
his position on the express car steps,
sprang off and it went on and left
Later developments show that there
were but two highwaymen and that
they compelled two tramps whom they
met near the scene of the .hold-up to
take part in it. 1

into the mountains where the leaders
are supplying them with arms and

Cascade Locks, Or., Sept. 9. The

thing proved to be in perfect order.
There was no particular demonstration
or celebration of the event though
about all the residents of Cascade Locks
were out to see the passage. The
bydraulio maohinery that operates the
gates proved to be adequate for the
work they are intended to perform,
and caused the ponderous gatea to
