Port Townsend, Sept. 6. A letter
just received from John U. Smith,
United States coramisioner at Dyea and
bkaguay, intimates that government
officials now on the way to the Upper
Jfukon may by their official acts bring
on serious international .complications
with the Dominion government. He
It is announced here by a deputy
United States marshal that the United
States government is to make claim for
a large portion of the Yukon gold fields
which have heretofore been supposed to
be in British territory, and that the
territory which is claimed as being
within Alaska includes Dawson City.
"The basis of the claim to be .made
by the United States official to the dis
puted territory is in the fact that tbe
boundary line has never been deter
mined, and that .the United Statef
claim to possess information as to sur
veys made by the Canadian government
that fixes Dawson City and a large por
tion ot the district in Alaska."

Members o? the Lulgi Farty Say They
Saw the Mirage.
Seattle, Sept. 6. Alaska's Silent
City has emerged once more from its
mysterious hiding place, and revealed
its presence to five members or the
party that acompanied Prince Luigi up
Mount St. Jilias. in the early morn
ing of July 18, the party, while return
ing from the ocean with supplies, sud
denly saw the city mirrored in the
oiear atmoepnere. rne vision was so
clear that C. W. Thornton, who first
noticed it, wrote in his notebook as fol
lows: .
"It required no effort of the imagina
tion to liken it to a city, for the image
wag so distinct and plain that it re
quired, instead, a strong faith 'to be
lieve that it was not in reality, a oity.
Whereas the Silent City, of which
Minor W. Bruce wrote, was seen from
Muir glacier, the one obsereved by Mr.
Thornton and company was observed
from Malaspina glacier, more than 100
miles distant. It remained a perfect
image for 80 minutes, and then slowly
faded away, while in its place appeared
a rocky ridge.
Downing, Hopkins & Company's Review
of Trade.
We have had a week of ner
vous, erratio markets, fluctuations
covering a wide range, but finally set
tling near the figures of a week ago.
Receipts are comparatively light, with
a good demand both home and abroad.
Exports for the week were again very
heavy (6,268,247 bushels), and that
ratio will probably be increased short
ly. The report of the Hungarian min
ister of agriculture estimates the deficit
in the world's wheat crop at about 826,
000,000 bushels. This a very bullish
estimate and will make itself felt in the
calculations of the grain trade. Thresh
ing returns from the Northwest, while
meagre as yet, are very disappointing,
the yield falling below even the latest
estimates, while the quality is very
poor indeed, and there will be a great
deal of low grade and rejected wheat on
the market when the orop gets to mov
ing more freely. We feel very bullish
indeed on the general outlook, and be
lieve that wheat will sell far above the
dollar mark before Christmas. It is
perfectly natural that we should have
reactions; it is a sign of a healthy mar
ket, but we consider we have, had ours
after the late advance.
There has been a very firm undertone
to corn, and while it has reacted from
the sharp rally that followed the break
of last week, yet there is no sign of any
real weakness and there is a feeling
that it will seek a much higher level of
prices-than those now prevailing. Re
ceipts have been large, with a good de
mand. The export demand still con
tinues to make itself felt, and clear
ances last week aggregated nearly 8,-
000,000 bushels, and would have been
larger had there been vessel room to
ship it in. Crop news contineus prac
tically unohanged, the crop making fair
progress during the week.

The Age of Deer.
Romance has played a prominent part
with regard to the longevity of deer,
says a writer in Chamber's Journal
What says the Highland adage?
xnrice tne age oi a nog is that of a
Thrice the age of ahorse is that of
man, . .
Thrice the age of a man is that of
deer, "
Thrice the age of a deer is that of an
Thrice the age of an eagle is that of an
oak tree.
This is to assign the deer a period of
more than 200 years; and the estimate
issiipporte J ym ny hijh'y cirjmmtan
tial stories. Thus. Captain MaoDonald.
of Tulloch, who died in 1776, aged 86
years, is said to have known the white
hind of Loch Treig for 50 years; his
father for a like period before him
and his grandfather for 60 years before
him So, in 1826, Macdonald of Glen
garrys is reported to have killed a stag
which bore a mark on the left ear
identical with that made on all the
calves, he could catch by Bwen-Mac-Ian-Og,
who had been dead 150 years.
Analogous stories, it may be noted,
are told in countries on the continent
of Europe, where deer are to be found
in any number. But alas I the general
opinion among experts would seem to
be that 30 years or thereabouts is the
limit of a deer's life.
United States Senate Employes.
Thirty years ago 70 employes of the
United Slates senate were on the pay
roll. Today the number is 854. The
large increase is in proportion not only
to the size of the senate, but as well to
the increase in public business, due to
the enormous development of the coun
try. It takes more employes to trans
act this business. But the number of
high-priced employes has not increased
in proportion to the increase in the to
tal number. Thus, two years ago an
$1,800 cieik in the postofflce was cut
off and two men at $900 each were
added to the carrier service. It was said
that the clerk was not needed, but the
additional carriers were.-

An improved range finder for field
glasses has a flat dial plate, subdivided
to correspond witfo the focus of the

Bis Life Probably the Penalty of Ilia
New York, Sept. 6. William Orton
jumped from the Brooklyn bridge this
afternoon, and now, lies in a critical
condition at the marine hospital. He
rode on a truck going to Brooklyn
shortly before 2 o'clock. When the
truck was near the center of the bridge,
Orton got off and quickly climbed upon
the rail. The bridge was crowded with
promenaders, but no policeman was
near. : Orton stood on the rail for a
few momenta, and throwing off his hat,
jumped out into space. He turned
over several times in his descent, and
struck the water on his right side.
When he came -to the Burface, the crew
of the tug gratitude fished him out.
Orton was in an exhausted condition,
and, after a while said:
"I did it; I did it; didn't I?" Then
he sank off into a state of coma, from
which he had not recovered at last ac
counts. '
Fly Wheel Burst.
Porstmouth, O., Sept. 8. A 40-ton
fly-wheel at the Burgess steel and iron
works was bursted by a 4,800-pound
ingot stopping a roll. The mill was
crowded with workmen. John Murphy
was hurled 80 feet and badly bruised.
The roof was wrecked. Beams two feet
iquare were cut in two like straws. The
mill was set on fire, but the flames were
soon extinguished and the furnaoe de
stroyed. The loss cannot be estimated,
but the damages will close the mill un
til a new fly wheel is secured.

There is more Catarrh In this section of the
country than all other diseases put together,
and until the last few years was supposed to be
incurable. For a great many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease, and prescribed local
remedies, and by constantly failing to cure by
local treatment, pronounced it incurable.
Science has proven catarrh to be a constitu
tional disease, and therefore requires consti
tutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh finre. man

Two Unique Colonies. t
A farming community in which every
one of the 145 workers may be expected
to drop his hoe or plow handles or her
broom or dish tray at any moment
without warning, and writhe upon the
ground in convulsive agonies, is rather
unique among all colonization schemes.
Such, however, is the Craig colony or
epileptics at Sonyea, N. Y., with its
group of 69 men and 76 women. At
the national conference of charities and
correction in Toronto, I had been
strongly assured that no view of East
ern philanthropists could be complete
without a visit to the new, but famous
Craig colony. ... Accordingly I pedaled
my bicycle over country roads south
from Rochester, through Genesee and
Mount Morris, to diminutive Sonyea,
whose residents are exclusively epilep
tics or theifattendants. The new col
