Government May Furnish Connection
'Between Alaska Points. -
Washington, Aug. 35. Some inter
esting statements i relating to the gold
region in Alaska, and the reindeer. ex
periment there are brought out in the
annual statement of Wnited States Com
missioner of Kducatoin Harris, sub
mitted today. Touching on the import
ance of extending the introduction of
reindeer into that territory, the report
says the reindeer stations ought to be
able to furnish 500 reindeer trained to
the harness at once for use of miners
on the Upper Yukon river.
" "It was my purpose," the commis
sioner goes on "to detail three of the
skilled herdsmen and 800 tarined rein
deer to the Yukon region the present
If this arrangemment is carried out
as intended, an important experiment
will be in progress during the coming
year at the gold mines. , The , plan of
the bureau has been to arrange a rein
deer express, connecting towns in a line
from B'ehring straits to Kodiak island.
Superintendent of Reindeer Stations
Kjollmanni last September proved the
practicability of this by making a trial
trip on this route. Two of his party
were able to take the steamer at Kat
mai, sailing to Sitka in March. This
ararngement once completed, it will be
possible for business companies- in San
Francisco and other cities to hold com
munication with their whaling fleets
during the winter, north of the Arctic
circle. - '
There have been maintained in Alaska
20 day schools, under the supervision

Circle City in the Yukon mining dis
trict, but the department's agent, writ
ing from St. Michaels, says he is afraid
he will be forced to discontinue it, be
cause of the exodus of the city's popu
lation into, the region nearer the re
cently discovered mines.
The influx of miners into the Yukon
has caused a demand for reindeer for
freighting purposes. In the original
plan of the purchase and distribution
of reindeer, the purpose was to secure
a new food supply for the famishing
Eskimos of the Behring sea and the
Arctic ocean region, but it is now found
that reindeer are as essential to white
men as to Eskimos. The wonderful
Yukon placer mines are situated 25 to
100 miles from the great stream. Pro
visions brought from the south and
landed on the banks of the river are,
with great difflcutly, transported to the
mines on the tributary streams. Last
winter mongrel dogs, for transportation
purposes, cost from $100 to $200 each,
and freight charges from the river to
the mountain range from 15 to 20 cents
per pound. The trained reindeer make
in a day two or three times the distance
covered by dog teams, and have the ad
vantage that they can use the abundant
moss as foodi ;

Misplaced Switch Derails an Excursion
j ' Train Near Chicago.
Chicago, Aug. 25. An engine at
tached to a heavy excursion train on
the Chicago & Calumet Terminal rail
road was derailed last night near Riv
erdale. The passengers were thrown
from from their seats by the jar and one
man was probably fatally injured.
Seven others received slight injuries.
After a delay ; of two hours the engine
was raised to the track and the train
It is very evident that the accident
was caused by a misplaced switch, be
lieved to have been the work of tramps.
The switch was found broken in two
places. The baggage-car was telescoped
over the cab and coal tender. Murray,
one of the injured, was riding in this
car, and was caught in the debris. He
was dug out unconscious and may die.
The force of the shock was so great
that the track was literally torn out of
the ground. There were 500 passengers
on board, and had the train not been
running at a Blow rate of speed, a ter
rible loss of life would have resulted.

Would Compel Bachelors to Wed. -:
New York, Aug. '25. Charlotte
Smith, president of the Women's Res
cue League, called on the Central Labor
Union to explain her new scheme for
compelling marriageable bachelors to
marry. - She was too late to get the
floor, but she buttonholed several of the
delegates. ' ; .;''
She said she had statistics to shdw
that there was an intimate connection
between her scheme and the labor ques
tion. The great competition of women
in the field of labor, Bhe held, was be
cause 60 per cent of the men refused to
marry She said she was going to Bos
ton to start a campaign against the
Republican and Democratic candidates
for mayor there, bceause both of them
are bachelors. She did not. believe that
a bachelor ought to hold an elective
office, because no man could possibly
act on questions of public morality un
less he was married. ! ;
- She was preparing a pamphlet upon
her scheme, and intended to show that
if bachelors were compelled to marry
and , the army of unmarried women
were to became housewives and mothers,
wages would go up. Even if all the
bachelors in Greater New York were to
marry : there . would be still 100,000
women without husbands. It is re
ported from Boston that Mr. Curtis, the
Republican candidate for mayor of that
city, has already announced his engage
ment to a young woman. ' ;

A. Resume of Events in
Probable Cause of the Firing Off the
St Auugstine, Fla., Aug. 24.-Last
night heavy firing t sea by rapid-fire
guns and the rays of a searchlight
brought out the people of this city.
The whole affair was carefully noted by
the officers of the First artillery from
their quarters in St. Francis barracks,
who are positive that the vessel fired
not less than 40 shots, first rapidly and
then at intervals, ceasing as if the ob
ject of the chase was caught. Then
the rapid firing would be resumed.
The ship, probably a war vessel,- could
not come nearer tan about five miles off
shore, and was evidently chasing a
nunuirauimi ooax. as wio ubiibh came
from the starboard gun.
The coast is indented by a sand strip
reaching out to about one mile off this
bar, and it forms the cone of. Anastasia
liehthouse. straieht down the coasts for
14 miles to Matanzas inlet. The St.'
Augustine bar had ; but seven feet of
water on it at the stage of the tide
would have prevented the coming over
ot tne xnree D'rienas or uauntiess, were
mose tne vessels cnaseu. i.nere was
only four feet of water on Matanzas
inlet, and unless a vessel could make
this harbor she would either have to
put to sea or surrender. For this reason
indications point to the fleeing boat
taking an easterly course. w nen tne
firing commenced a squall was on and
the night was yery dark.
