INTENSE COLD OF WINTER.
Commander Randall Says Troops Deteriorate
in the Climate.
Washington, Oct. 10.—The war de
partment has made public the annual
report of Brigadier General George
M. Randall, commanding the depart
ment of Alaska. General Randall
lays much stress on the rigors of an
Alaskan winter. The cold he says is
intense and continues so from No
vember to April, with severe and fre
quent blizzards. There is no dock
age for ocean vessels at the supply
port, Fort St. Michael, and all sup
plies must be lightered from ships in
the open. If the weather is rough

General Randall says that the
moat important work in the depart
ment, after providing for the housing
and supply of troops, was that of con
structing the military telegraph line
and military road through Alaska.
The total length of the line construct

The work is being pushed as fast

Fort St. Michael and Fort Gibbons,
420 miles distant, will have been es

lines, General Randall says, is attend
ed with many dieffiulties peculiar
to an Arctic climate.
Owing to the isolation of army posts
and to the lack of facilities for in
struction in drill and for convening

troops left to serve there for several
years must deteriorate in military effi
ciency. He, therefore, recommends
that troopB stationed in Alaska be
relieved every two years, and that
only men with more than two years
to serve be ordered there. In con
clusion General Randall says: “The
location of department headquarters
in Alaska for the past year is be
lieved to have had a pronounced ben
eficial effect toward the protection
of person and property and the estab

Paris, Oct. 10.—A letter received by
the Havas agency from Salonica,
dated October 6, says:
"The American consul here has
just received orders to make the ar
rangements with the vali (governor)
for the payment of the ransom of
Miss Stone. The United States will
advance the money, afterwards set-
tliing with Turkey.
“The Turkish authorities have
made numerous arrests among the
Bulgarian population, without dis
tinction of religion, and nearly all
have teen put to torture in the hope
of abstracting information. A prison
er named Dimtri said an under
standing existed between the protes
tants and the Macedoonian commit
tee, and that Miss Stone was even
acting in concert with them with
the view of obtaining funds for a
political-religious propaganda. These
declarations, wrung from Dimitri un
der torture, are valueless. What is
certain is that the captain of the
band designated for the payment of
the ransom a place in the proximity
of the Roumanian frontier, which
proves that he hopes to escape the
Turkish police, and that the Bulga
rian police do not cause him anxiety.
“The condition of affairs is shown
by the fact that five or six bands of
brigands of 12 to 15 men each have
become so bold between Strumitza
and Kuprili that the officials of the
