THE SLIDE AT DYEA PASS Only One Life Was Lost in' the Avalanche. 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 , foothills. ' 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 tvinH it nnn I Ana a naw In tha Til rl-if svr 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 values. , Portland Markets. Wheat Walla Walla, 79c; Val ley and Bluestem. 8182c per bushel.

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 great Mohammedan school at Cairo, El Azhar, meaning the "Splen did," has clear records , dating as far back as 975.' - . - ; - ' .Fatal Runaway Accident.

An emulsion was .immediately formed, 1 the (Ihloro-Naptholeura mixing instantly with the water, leaving a mixture almost the exact color of milk. In the first one hour and twenty minutes sixty-two sheep had been dipped, the extra fifty fciinutes be ing consumed in draining the fluid from the animals, as the wool took up about two gallons, and this had to be returned to the tank. Examinations of each sheep as dipped showed that the Ticks were all killed, and ticks taken from undipped lambs and placed well under the wool close to the skin on those previously dipped diel in three minutes' time. - -' ,. 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 sheep. ....
