THE SLIDE AT DYEA PASS
Only One Life Was Lost in'
SEVERAL' SERIOUSLY HURT
Warm Weather and Continuous Itahift
Caused Section of Glacier to Break
Loose Thrilling Bace for Life.
Victoria, B. C, Sept. 28. The
steamer City of Seattle arrived from
Skaguay at noon, bringing the follow
ing special to the Associated Press:
Finnegan's Point, on Chilkoot trail,
Sept. 22. Sheep camp, nine miles
above here, was nearly wiped off the
face of the earth yesterday morning by
a section of a glacier breaking loose
from the main body, which came crash
ing down the canyon for H miles,
carrying death and destruction in its
wake. The first report that was
brought down last night by men who
had braved the perils of the flood and
precipice to get out, was that not less
than seven were killed and dozens
maimed and hurt, as well as thousands.
of dollars Worth of property destroyed,
but later reports, confirmed by hun
dreds of witnesses, have brought the
certain death loss down to one man
named Chovnski, of San Francisco.
Several were hurt somewhat but none
fatally. There may be other deaths,
ibnt so far no other bodies can be found.
I The loss of supplies will reach
.$25,000. Many have lost their all
after toiling for weary days to get them
i thia far on the way, and many profes
; sional packers that had been working
for weeks and months, working as men
; never worked before, lost their earnings
iin the twinkling of an eye.
The warm weather and heavy rains
of the past few days had formed a lake
on the glacier, and the wind, blowing
for 24 hours from the north, had finally
broken off a section, probably half an
lacre in extent, w hich, with the water
behind it, started on its fatal journe"y.
Persons who were camped at Stone
house say it looked like a volcano turn
ed loose over 100 feet in height and 25
ifeet in width. When it started it
made a noise as if 1,000 cannons had
been fired, and the startled inmates of
the tents sprang to their feet in all
stages of undress and rushed outside to
see what was the matter. One glance
up the canyon was enough. , Some
rushed into their tents to gather the
jmost valuable things they could lay
(their hands on, while others took to the
' From Skaguay the City of Seattle
brought 210 persons, 192 men and 18
women, who were unable to cross White
' nass and who preferred a return to civ-
mzaiion to rissing uuaui oy exposure
at Skaguay. T. P. MoCauley, a form
er member of the Btate legislature from
Taooma, was among the returning pas
sengers. He was north six weeks and
says during that time there were only
two days in which either rain or snow
did not fall. Many persons who started
over from Skaguay are too poor to return
without sifti'ifioing their all and have
camped for the winter on the trails in
many cases occupying xna same tents
with their horses.
' From now on the rush from Alaska
back to the Sound will be greater than
. was the rush to Alaska after the first
trip of the Portland.
The .City of Seattle brought the.news
of a murder and suicide at Skaguay.
George Buchanan foreman of the Skag
uay Bay Improvement Company, shot
- and killed Mrs. Stella Kossuth, the pro
prietor of a lodging house and restaur
ant and then killed himself.. He was

the 21st he, oalled her to his room and
as she was running from him shot her
in the back of the head. She died in
' 12 minutes.' He turned the revolver
on himself, and the bullet went crash
ing through his temple, killing him in
stantly. Buchanan was about 24 years
of age. Mrs. Kossuth ! was a widow,
about -28 years of age. Her mother,
Mrs. Crawford, formerly kept the Con
tinental hotel, at Skaguay.
1 Purser Thorndyke says there are over
1,000 men all in all on the trails, who,
if they could get to the coast, would do
so. There were others among the pas
sengers who lost their outfits at Sheep
Camp, and still others who had theirs
destroyed by the incessant rain that
had been falling. , Some few sold their
outfits, but those who could not find
buyers left their outfits along the trails
to be ruined. '
Those who came down predict that a
still larger contingent will oome down
by the steamers following them, as
winter is beginning in earnest. Ice is
forming on the river and on the lakes,
and if those at Lakes Lindeman and
Bennett do not soon start down they
will be also too late to do so this year.
On the summit snow is nearly six feet
deep, and at last reports snow was still
falling heavily there.
With some of those at Skaguay, the
state of affairs seems to find favor, for
there are some of the miners who will
make an attempt to get in with sleds
and dog trains when the lakes are
frozen. No one has gone in of late,
and, in fact, very few have attempted
to do so, for the trail is in such bad
condition that it is absurd to think of
doing so. "
The report oomes from Dyea that a
large number of boats were swamped
while running White Horse rapids and
in Miles canyon, - and that four men
were drowned. Nobody seems to know
the names of the men, but a packer
named Beynolds stated that it was a
fact that four men had lost their lives.
A Greenwood (Me.) farmer found a
sheep and a lamb in his pasture the
other day with their noses so full of
poroupine quills that they were unable
to graze. , . ..
WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
Downing, Hopkins & Company's Revlevf
' of Trade.
A low range of values for wliat has
been established during the week as the
result of diminished speculation, in
creased receipts and accumulating
stocks, the market closing weak under
these conditions,' with still lower ten
dency. Clearances continue large.
Export sales have been only moderate,
and there seems to be a pause in the
European demand. The diminished
volume of speculation is probably the
weakest feature in the market at pres
ent, as the trade generally have accept
ed as a faot that Europe wants all the
surplus food products that we have to
spare. . The presence of a so-called
"bull clique" has been largely respon
sible for the decreased trade and done
muoh to check the advance. The in
creasing stocks would not prove suffi
cient to depress values, but in conjunc
tion with the lessened export demand
and absence of speculation the current
of the market has been turned and un
til conditions are changed a lower range
of values is to be expected temporarily.
Corn values have suffered a severe
decline, due in part to local speculative
conditions. The salient points of
weakness, in the market, however, have
been the large receipts, enormous stocks
and the insufficiency of the cash de
mand. The forward movement is now
falling off. Farmers have practically
ceased selling. The cash demand is
also improving and a stronger market is
probable next week. Crop prospects
are unfavorable. Serious damage has
occurred since the last government re
port was compiled, and the next report
will show a very large decrease in the
estimated yield. Present values are
below the average for years past and in
vite speculative buying. The shortage
in the world's wheat crop would in it
self warrant better values for corn, but
in connection with the serious shortage
in the potato crop, etstimated at
1,000,000,000 bushels, it is apparent
that corn will be in greater export de
mand than ever before. We regard
present weakness as but temporary, and
certain to be followed by much higher

R. & N. TRAIN HELD UP.
Engineer and Fireman Robbed High
waymen Captured. .
Portland, Or., Sept. 28. One of the
boldest attempts to hold up a train re
ported here for years oocurred Sunday
evening at 9:25 o'clock on the O. R. &
N. track just five miles beyond the
city limits. While the regular East
ern train, No. 2, was leaving the city,
two masked men succeeded in stopping
the engine by some signal, and after
taking the enigneer and fireman into
the brush beside the track, robbed them
of their watches and about $16 in
money. The brakeman went forward
as soon as the train stopped, and taking
in the situation, crawled under the
mail car and opened fire on the rob
bers, who got into the brush with their
two prisoners. Then he mounted the
cab, and, amidst a volley of pistol shots,
succeeded in backing the train out of
danger. No one was injured, and noth
ing was lost except what was taken
from the engineer, and fireman while
their captors had them under guard in
the brush by the track. , .
Conductor Allison- was made aware
of the trouble by the slackened speed of
the train. The brakeman , was ahead
of him in going forward, and had en
gaged in the combat with the highway
men before he reached the upper end.
He was approaching the scene of the
shooting, carrying his lantern, when a
ahot from one of the robbers broke the
globe. Realizing that something seri
ous was in progress, he retired hastily
to the interior of one of the coaches.
As soon as. the conductor found that the
train was backed far enough to be out
of danger he had it stopped, and him
self armed, with the brakeman and
some of the passengers who could mus
ter a firearm, a hostile array was form
ed to receive the onslaught of the high
waymen. .' -
The attack Hi t.ot come, however,
but instead of tne "robbers there came
walking down the track the engineer
and fireman. They were received with
joy, and told their story after it became
apparent that the robbers intended no
further demonstration against the pas
sengers. When the train halted, the engineer
and fireman were covered by the revolv
ers of the highwaymen and ordered to
get out of the cab. As the two had the
drop on the engineer and fireman, they
thought there was no other alternative,
and obeyed. As soon as they reached
the ground they were ordered in front
of the engine a short distance from
where it stood. Following the mandate
of the robbers, they walked in the direc
tion indicated until ordered to stop.
Both were searched for valuables. From
the engineer a gold watch and chain
were secured, and about $7 in money.
The fireman was also, relieved of $8.
This accomplished, the two prisoners
were permitted to return down the
track to where the brakeman had run
the train, while the robbers took their
departure in another direction.
, Robbers Captured.
The two highwaymen who held up
the O. R. & N. train were arrested
within 15 hours of the hold-up, and are
securely lodged in the city jail. The
bungling clumsiness with which they
conducted the robbery characterized
their movements from the time they
laid their first plans. '
They were arrested in a lodging house
on Seventh and Oak streets, where they
took up their quarters on arriving in
the city, and whence thev returned
after their crime. They give the pre
sumably fictitious names of George
Jackson and Charles Williams.. No
lives were lost in the oapture, nor was
any time wasted. The men when ar
rested gave every evidence of being des
perate characters, but before use could
be made of their numerous weapons,
the two were covered with revolvers,
precluding any attempt at resistance.
Jackson and, Williams, ' the former
being about 50 years of age -and the
latter not more than 82, came to this
city Wednesday, on the California
steamer, stopping the first night in a
hotel, and the next day taking a room
in the lodging house at 83 : Seventh
street. In their room, when captured,
were found two fine double-barreled
shot-guns, bearing evidence of having
been recently fired, and two large re
volvers. Some time prior to : Saturday
night the housemaid, in cleaning their
room, observed 1 a fair-sized packet,
marked "Handle with care." Satur
day night this disappeared from their
room, and found near where the train
was held up, containing 15 sticks of a
heavy high explosive, designated aa
Hercules, No. 1, powder. :
i The two men also went to a livery
stable Sunday, took a horse and single
bnggy at about 5 o'clock, and did not
return it until 11 o'clock, that night.
In this buggy was found next morning
a purse that Engineer C. H. Evans
identified as being the one taken from
him by the highwaymen at the time of
the hold-up. In the purse was a $5
gold piece, which it also contained at
the time of its departure from Mr.
Evans, but he is unable to identify the
piece of money as the one he possessed.
, The story of their capture is brief,
yet reveals careful and efficient work
by the officers, and a determined effort
on the part of the O. R. & N. offloiala
to bring the desperadoes to justice.

The head of each animal was put completely under the water, while the rule is to keep the
nose exposed. Careful observation failed to show any nausea or sickness among any of the lambs
or sheep, a gratifying result, as most dips, especially tobacco and those of arsenical composition,
create great distress.
Governor Mount was informed by telephone as to the result. There were J 60 lambs and 160 old

A MATTER OF GREAT IMPORTANCE to farmers, especially
those who raise sheep for wool, is the dipping of the animals in the
spring and fall of the year. The purpose is not only to Kill the lick
which infest sheep, but to Destroy the Scab, a disease which irritates
the skin, causing intense itching, roughness and loxs of fleece. In
the far West dipping has been performed semi-annually lor years,
but in England and Australia it is required by law, The importance
of the process may be imagined when it is known that foreign gov
ernments will not receive scabby sheep, and the inspectors of the
government at different stock yards compel the slaughtering of ail
such afflicted animals, which, in many instances means consi.lerab a
loss to the owner, As the government offers neither apology liorre-

The Bureau of Animal Industry of the United States Agricultural
Department is making experiments wi th a view to destroying tl.e dis

DO YOU SLEEP SOUND?
Is your sleep refreshlngor do you roll and
toss and fret and worry about your trouble?
It your nerves are healthy and full of vitality
your sleep will be sound and you. will wake up
feeling vigorous and refreshed. If your nerves
are weakened from excesses, dissipation, over
work or brain weariness, you will hyive noticed
that your sleep is disturbed, you roll and toss,
you dream or have nlht sweats. Then you get
up in the morning, feeling about as bad, or
worse, than, when you went to bed.. Your
nerves lack tone and vigor. Your system
needs bracing up. Your vital functions are
sluggish. You may have been using a medi
cine to induce sleep. So much the worse for
you in the long run. By its use you simply
deaden the nerves. Of course it induces sleep,
but how do you feel in the morning? Howls
your appetite for breakfast and your ambition
for work? Don't you see the mistake of it all?
You do not need medicine. You need the ton

electricity, such as you can get by applying
