Circlk City, Alaska, May 20. Three
men who loft Dahl river, December 6,
for Jim town, woro not heard of again,
and they were rupposed to havo boon
lost, Nothing was heard of them here
till the steamer Hideout, which arrived
today, brought nowa of a terrible tale of
suffering and horror. The men were
Michael Daly, Victor Eliar and .
Provost, tho latter two French
men. They wore from Provi
dence, 11. I. Weonsockot, It. I., and
Hrocton, Mass., respectively. Their
bodies wero discovered 17 miles from
tho mouth of Old Man creek, they hav
ing lost the trait and become bewil
dered. Having loft Dahl river with
only three weeks' grub, but which was
amply sufficient for tho 160 miles to Jim
town, tho poor fellows woro soon re
duced to starvation.
Daly's body was found in a lent,
partly eaten, and on tho stove, just as it
was left when death overtook tho others,
were found Rome scraps of moose-hido
and a moccasin, of which they wero en
deavorlng to muko n stow. Daly's Iwdy
was identified by his clothes.
Tho two Frenchmen wero found dead
flvo miles ewiiy from tho tent. Tiio tent
flaps being cut down when found!
would seem to preclude the possibility
of Daly's body having lieen eaten by an
imals, tho other men doubtless having
been driven by hunger to tho awful
extremity of cannibalism. Four hun
