his hands back of him. He was at once

The Treasure .Ship Arrives.
Not so Much Gold Brought as Ex
pected. Port Angeles, Wash., Aug. 30
The steamer Portland arrived from
tit. Michaels. Captain Kidston re-
puw;u u pieasant, voyage, and ex
plained the delay or three days In
reaching Port Angeles by stating that
a very serious storm at St. Michaels
delayed the discharge of his cargo.
lie laughed when told of the re
ports that the Portland was carrying
over $2,000,000 In gold. As a matter
of fact, he said, there was only about
8825,000 In gold dust and nuggets on
board his ycssel.
Among the Portland's passengers
from St. Michaels is Timothy Bell,
who has with him 830,000 In gold
which he dug from a claim that cost
William Ogllvle, Dominion sur
veyor, says the 000 claims now staked
out will yield 800,000,000.
From a number of the Portland's
crew It was learned that Captain
Kidston had expected the Weare, one
of the company's boats, to come down
the Yukon with about 81,000,000
worth of nuggets and gold dust, but
asshe did not arrive In time he de
cided to bring down the treasure

The returning iiJcro oay that, tbo
rcmarkabljprfcrl ' claims on Eldtfrado
creek will number 140. Mr. Ogllvle
estimates that, at the rate these 140
claims are now producing, and con
sidering the ground yet to be worked,
the amount In the next three years
will aggregate about 870,000,000. To
this must be added the favorable pos
sibilities of pockets and development
of claims already found but not open
ed. There have been other rich strikes
on Stewart river. Hunker, Hender
eod and Indian creeks, but none of
these are as rich as the claims on El
dorado and Bonanza creeks.
Until the wonderful discoveries of
Klondike were made, ground worth 10
cents to the pan, with two or three
feet of pay dirt, was considered very
good for the Yukon, and the miners
made their money with rockers and
sluices. This year the miners aro
passing entirely over ground of this
richness In their search for sand and
gravel that will pay like that or the
Up to date, none of the claims was
showing any signs or exhaustion, and
scarcely a dozen are more than well
opened, Every one has large area or
ground to be worked.
One returning miner says it is Im
possible to make anything like an ac
curate estimate of the probable yield
of the mines. The ground Is not at
all even In richness, and the worth of
pay streaks varies greatly. ,
The most important news from St.
Michaels is that the river steamers
left there two weeks ago for their last
trip up. It is not certain they will
reach Dawson this fall, and the pas
sengers wio left the Sound as early as
July 25 may 6nly reach Circle City be-

certain that hundreds who left tlio

tlio best they can scarcely get started
up the Yukon before It freezes solid.
All vessels touching at St. Michaels
this summer have had difficulty
keeping their crows, who have caught
the fever. One schooner from "Vic

crew, from 'captain to "cook, who

They Had Both Flags.
Toronto, Aug. 30, the story of the
halting oMhe Grand Army posts here
appears to have .been exaggerated.
These are the facts;
The members of post No. 13, of St.
Louis, arrived here in the afternoon.
They attempted to get a British flag
on the steamer, and falling tried to
borrow one from the customs officer
at the dock.
He suggested that the visitors could
get a Hag at one or the stores further
up the street, and a policeman escor
ted the post to Queen street, where It
halted until! Its leaders could pur-'
chase a flag. Then with the British;
and American flags flying, the Grand '

welcomed and returned to the boat
much pleased with their visit.

The Object of the Meeting.
Few Labor Leaders on Hand for
St. Louis, Aug. 30. Tlio attendance
of labor leaders upon today's united
labor convention Is considerable of a
disappointment, but the promoters
are gathering, and it is thought that
today's arrivals will materially In
crease the list of delegates. ZZL
The most Important arrivals or the
day were D. R. Sovereign, grand
master workman or the Knights or
Labor; W. C. Pcarcc, secretary or the
United Mtncworkcrs or America, and
R. Askew, secretary or the National
Miners' Association or America, Is
"It is simply Impossible to forecast
what this courcrenco will do," said
Mr, Sovenlgn. "It seems tome, how
ever, that all labor organizations re
alize that the timo has come ror tLcm
to put aside all petty jealousies and
from one grand amalgamation.
Whether this organlzatioa will bo
effected here, I cannot even surmise.
Organized labor has worked on a line
to secure legislation which will beno
flt the working classes, but It brought
us no benefit. It will now get to work
in an endeavor to remove the cause of
our failure In the legislative circles,
and hopes for better results."
Branching off into the matter or
the miners' strike, Sovereign said:
"This miners' strike is nearer won
than many people believe. If over
thero was a real grievance and an ob
ject for striking, It Is In this strike,
and I believe they will win yet. If
they don't win. It Is tlio last strike I
What plan of action Mr. Sovereign
had made ho declined to say.

mittee of arrangements, said lie had

pian of action for the confcrancc,
which they will present at the con
Teranco tomorrow. Debs will arrlvo

as can be ascertained, are to devise

Secretary Stclnbess, of the Build
ing Trades Council, of St. Louis, who
has done much to bring the confer
ence into existence, said:
"The object of the meeting is to
settle the miner.' strike. Wo want
justice, and we are going to have It,
but not In defiance of the principles
of American liberty. Wo are patri
otic, and we want what is for the best
Interests of the country. I think the
result of this meeting will bo the
uniting of all the labor organizations
In this country in one common cause.
It will, without any question, load to
the union or all Mic labor organiza
tions in this country In one central
body, in which united action can be
taken for their Interests on every
question that may affect their Inter

pacing f-talllon Star Pointer, owned
by James A. Murphy, Saturday wiped
out the two-minute mark, and ended
tho controversy which has been going
on for years as to speed qualities of
tho light harness horso. Accompanied
by a runner, the big bay Tennessee
bred stallion wlpea out the mark and
hadjthrce-quarter8 of a secondto spare
when he went under the wire. This
wonderful performance was witnessed
by about 8003 persons. It was the
moro wonderful for on Friday Joe
Patchen, with Goers behlcd him, had
made a try at the mark mado by John
R. Gentry last October, and had
failed by a second and a hair. Because
or this, It was not thought that his
greatest rival In the race line would
get down below the even time-mark.
Tho day was perfect for record ,
Tho first quarter was at a two-minute
gait, 30 seconds, and then, as Mc
Clcary called on nis pacer to movo,
there was a great cheer, for ho was
beating two minutes and -got to the
hair In 0:202. The third quarter was
the fastest of tho mile, the distance
being covered in 0:20 seconds, a
Around tho turn Pointer seemed t
