The Herald job Printing
The following arttcli? te from n recent
issue of the Spokum* Spokesman-Review,
ami Ih as told hy John J. Guheen, nn attorney of Pocatello, Idaho. There can
be little, If any doubt, of ita truth, even
in its worst.
For the Bake of money, railroad companies, steamship owners, and "reputable" merchants have lured to financial
ruin mauy hundreds—even to terrible
sufferings and death. But this is " business," while the '• shell-game" man who
imposes on a victim's credulity and extracts more or less money from him, not
endangering his life or health, Is a low-
down, sneaking criminal. Verily, this
s a wonderful civilization of ours, and
ts distinctions as to what is right and
what is wrong are very hazy.
Mr. Guheen says:
" Up to July 5 there was not less than
109 vessels, all overloaded with passengers and freight, landed at Nome; 35 of
these were large ocean steamships, some
carrying 800 passengers Probably the
average tonnage of the old vessels wonld
he 2,000 tons each. The barge Slcookutn
atone carried more than 6,000 tons, and
when one large barge carries enough to
load 250 freight-cars you can easily see
the amount of freight shipped to Nome.
All this freight was piled upon the beach
and extended for nearly a mile. A great
deal of it is there yet, aimI will so remain.
"Most of the steamship companies
advertised they carried their own barges
and there would be no delay in unloading
freight, but tbis was not true. The average a passenger would get his freight
ifter landing was about six days. As
neai ly everybody had his provisions as
freight, and many their tents, it worked
untold hardships upon them, and many
of the graves being dug at Nome me tor
the unfortunates who suffered exposure
while waiting for their freight to be
brought hShore. You h.ul to wnich tbe
barges night and dny, as your freight
came piecemeal, aud if you were uot on
baud to receive it, it was almost as good
as lost.
Description ol Towi,
"The town is east of Snnke river.
There is Go feet reserved by ihe government along the shore line. Kvcrythiug
back of that is public lands. Tbere is a
strip of ground, part sand, part soil, belweeu this 70 feet and the tundra, varying in width from 175 lo 350 feet, extending along the shore. This ground is
comparatively dry, and the first houses
of Nome were built upon it, aud in fact
about ail the houses. A nmn who lived
upon a lot had n squatter's 1 ight, but the
United Stntes commissioner, whom it is
generally reported had an interest in
huudr-uls of lots ruled that any improve
menu, however slight, made ou lots,
would hold them, nud the vatious devices called improvements tbnt were put
upon the lots of Nome were something
wonderful, All this dry strip for three
miles was claimed. The tundra, consisting of probably 160 anes, had been
■uiiveyed nnd every lot also dunned. Il
was Impossible to live ou the greater part
of this, which was swampy, but the unfortunates who liiiil landed and put up
their tents upon lots of any kind were
bulldozed off' at tbe point of a pistol or
the claimant would sv.e:ir out a warrant
for criminal trespass, have you arrested
and fined, and If you did not move a
tiifficicnt number of roumlers wearing
Uk* badges of United States marshals
and loaded with guns, would throw your
property to the four winds.
How Lots Were Sold.
" Tbe crowd wasso great thnt thlsclass
of cases became congested, and only the
lots near the business street weie looked
after, but the Individual cases in which
indignities were perpetrated upon law-
abiding and good citizens by these so-
called marshals aud wjtueastd hy myself
is beyond belief. The people had town-
lots for sale and they hnd an organization among themselves to compel you to
buy. and when you consider that no less
than 2500 men had brought Blocks of
goods of various kinds, worth from $100
10 f75,ooo, and all their goods stacked
upon the beach, where It was liable to
be ruined by a tidal wuve or storm at
any time, or of being carried away by
thieves, piece at a time, ;ou will not
wonder that those who had money paid
as high as $1200 a front foot for lota they
could get no title to.
A Few Killed OH.
" The price of lots went up so fast aud
beyond the expectation of the original
claimants that they got to jumping each
others' lots, which relieved the situation
somewhat, as a few of them were killed
off", Thousands with stocks of goods
are today selling them out for what they
can get. They are practically ruined
and could not even get a fair show, being kept off public lands through a combination hacked by so-called officers.
Kven   transportation   companies  could
have your tent lorn down tiff this 6u-foot
reserve if tbey so chose, and iu one case
the commissioner came in person ami
the deputies were honest enough to admit they hnd im right to tear it down,
but proposed t" do it anyway to accom*
mo 'nte the tompany. I refer to the
tent occupied by ' Pelf ll Urns ,' a business firm of Tacoma, who ran give full
particulars, This Is what made Nome 11
veritable hell on earth.
Soldiers Tike Charge.
" The day I left the town wns taken in
charge by General Randall, the soldier*
having arrived the day previous. Tbere
wns no money at Nome to speak of, except that iu the hands of Uie Dawson*
ites, who hnd come down fiom the Klondike nnd who were all disgusted and pronounced the whole thing a fake, anj tbe
money brought by the people from tbe
states. There were about 30,000 people
there, and the tents were about 10 deep
and almost touching each other for three
miles along the beach. Many were leaving iu boats and others constructing
boats to go up or down the coast, but all
were disheartened over the outlook. Tbe
great majority will stay at Nome, but
will get away as fast as they can get assistance.
Distress and Sickness.
"The distress aud sickness that will
he suffered and is now beiug suffered can
never be realized. The hospital wns
overcrowded with typhoid patients, with
many sick in tents, aud yet no warm
weather bad intervened to bring on the
sickly season. l-Kaths were occurring
from pneumonia, and I witnessed live
snmll-pox flags, the last being but a
block from where I was camped and run
up the day before I left. The authorities try to take them ou the tundra, away
from the crowded tents, but It is like
inviting death for a well man to sleep
over this tundra.
Can't Make Decent Living.
" The people who laud there now will
not be subjected to tbe hardships of the
30,000 who were dumped in there nearly
nil nt the same time, hut tbey will find
no miniug ground within a longdistance
of Nome and will also find 30,000 people
where 3 000 could not possibly make a
decent living, putting it at the very hest
figure. The tundra is composed of about
18 miles of rotten vegetation, the remainder being solidly frozen, remaining
so always unless thawed hy artificial
means. They say when you scrape the
vegetation off that the sun will thaw il
out ami the mud can be washed for gold.
The suu may loosen it up a little when it
is not raining, but* I will venture to say
that the unfortunate who goes there depending on old Sol to thaw out bis tundra claim will.be disappointed.
No Use for Horses.
"Tbere are probably 1500 horses nt
Nome, nil of them good, and the majority being of the very best. Nearly all
nre today enting high-priced hay aud
earning nothing; 300 were turned loose
on the tundra to shift for themselves a
few days hefore I Uft. I bad scores of
men, acquaintances and friends, ask me
to tell all I met thp true condition of affairs. I hnve no doubt after tbe time
of sailing of the second batch of steamships expires there will be articles printed advising people lo keep away from
tbere, but the truth is known at this
time, and still the coast newspapers encourage the people to go, mnny of them
to their death, and publish interviews
with the captaius of steamships, whom
they know dare not publicly talk of
the true situation under penalty of losing their positions.

The Craubrook Baseball Club visited
Rossland ami Nelsou last Sunday and
Monday. Prom Rossland they brought
away lhe pleasantest recollections iu bo
far as the reception accorded tbem and
courtesies extended hy the members of
the Rossland fue department and hy
Messis. Blue & Dins of the Rosslaud
brewery are concerned. These people
proved themselves men of the true
western type—a type unfortunately disappearing before the advancing cheap
civilization of the east.
Owing to some conditions that eould
not be helped, and to others that might
have been remedied but were not, the
Cranbrook team put up In both places
what was probably tbe most rotten game
ever played In by any of its members,
The boys went out to have a good time,
spent several hundred dollars between
tbe two towns and did not even get
what little credit they were entitled to.
The Nelson Tribune, however, went out
of its way to say mean things that were
uncalled for, and the Cranbrook club
only hope that the Nelson club, accompanied by as many of the citizens of
tbat town as may choose to come, will
come to Cranbrook in tbe near future
and bave some more '* fun with tbem,"
and tbey wilt guarantee them an enjoyable aud satisfactory time. This invitation also applies to the Rossland boys ae
Compliments of the Nelson Tribune:
The Nelson Tribune says:
There was another baseball gnme yesterday, this time between Cranbrook and
a scratch local team, of whom only
four belonged to the regular nine
A small crowd watched the match, and
if Ihey did not see much batl tbey certainly had lots of fun. It wis tbe most
amusing burlesque of baseball ever seen
iu Nelson, not forgetting the Bloomer
game. The four regulars played good
hall, and McLeod distinguished himself
both behind and at the bat. Of the others the least said the better, Nearly all
men however, found the Craubrook
pitcher without any difficulty, and
seemed to make runs whenever they
wauled to. Tbey knocked up six in Ibe
fcvenlh, and twenty-two in the seven innings, lhe Cranbrook men did not seem
10 be able to play ball at all. They
could do nothing with Warner, so Rock-
eufield went into the box and tossed
them nice easy ones, and thus, with the
help of tbe extraordinary fielding of
some of the Nelson men tbey knocked
up thirteen runs in seven innings. They
recognized that they were completely
outclassed by the scratch team and were
tired of being played with. The Cranbrook hall-players have mistaken tbeir
vocation. They should go home at once
aud stay there.
This Is Different.
The Nelsou Miner says: " Some
youug men belonging to Crnnbrook, organized as a baseball club, visited Rossland and Nelsou, playing wilh the clubs
there, nnd were rather badly defeated.
Thereupon our morning contemporary
says the Crattrhook players bave mistaken their vocation, nnd 'should go
home at ouce and stay tbere.' We hope
tbe young fellows from Cranhrook will
not make tbe mistake of supposing that

were swindled out of the game. The
game started cut with a base hit by-

Greal consternation was felt hy the
friends of M. A Hogarty of Lexington,
Ky., when they saw he was turning yellow. HisBkiu slowly changed color, also
his eyes, and he suffered terribly. His
malady was Yellow Jaundice. He was
treated by the best doctois, but without
benefit, Then be was advised to try
Rlectrlc Bitters, the wonderful Stomach
and Liver remedy, and he writes: "After
taking two bottles I was wholly cured."

From the Journal, St. Oalhorbtos, Out.
A reporter cf lhe Ht. Outhariues
Jourual vlsitiuK Wol html port not loug
ago, heard of ouo of those romnrkable
enres tbat havo made Dr. Williams'
Fink Pills famous ns Ufa savers tbe
world over. Tbe case is that of Perley
Mistier, son of Mr, Matbins Misuer,
who hud su tiered Irom hip joint disease
aud abscesses, aud who bad boon nuder
the care of four doot< rs without beneficial results. Mr. Misner gave tho
particnlara of the case as follows: "In
the spriiiK of 181)3 uiy sou, Perley,
who was theu in bis thirteenth year,
began to complain of au oohiug in his
bips, and later my Attention was directed to a peculiar sbairble in his
gait. As the trouble gradually grew
npon him I took him to a physician in
-Dnuville, who examined him aud snid
the trouble arose from a weakness of the
nerves of tbe hip. This doctor treated
Perley for weeks, during which time a
large abscess formed ou his leg, aud he
was obliged to get about uu crutches.
As be continued to decline, I resolved
to try another doctor, who diagnosed
tbe case as hip joint (iis-wee. Ho treated Perley for six mouths. The lad
•lightly improved at first, hat later
was taken wcr.e again. He would
startle iu his sleep nnd was continually in distress aB he oould neither sit nor
recline with ease, aud was weak, faint
and confused. Daring this timo tbe
abscess had broken and was discharging in three places, but would not
heal. A third doctor advised a surgical operation, which he objected to,
and'fttonrth medie.il mau then took
tbe case in baud. Tbis doctor confined
Perley to the bed, and besides giving
medioine, he ordered n mechanical appliance to which was ntiached a 15-
ponnd weight, to be placed in a position by a pulley system so ns to constantly draw downwards ou tho limb.
Tbis treatment was continued six
weeks, eausiug much pain, but nothing
lu tbo way of benefit wns noticed.
The abscess was dressed twico and
thrico a day for mouths, and frequently, despite tho nid of crutches, It was
necessary for mo to curry him io my
arms from the house to tbo vehicle
when takiug him out. Iu October of
1808, I decided, other treatments having failed, ta try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. I told tbe doctor of this deoi-
siou, nud he said that Dr. Williams'
Pink Pillfl would qnite likely bo of
mnoh benefit. After using fonr boxes
I conld see some improvement. After
tbia Perley continued the use of lhe
pills for several months wilh enitniaiit
Improvement nnd new vigor, nud after
takiug about is boxes the atooesi was
nicely healed, tbo orat-Shu weie dispensed with, nml he was able lo work
and could wnlk for miles, 1 attribute
tho gooil health which my sou enjoys
today to the use of Dr. Willhiin-i' Pink
Pills. This medicine achieved Bitch a
marvellous moooN in mv son's ease as
to net the whole community talking

enough to do Dr. Williams1 Pink I'ills

-ftrunup Thinkh Which Affect ProfM*
■ louol Tliii>ver» nnd Q«rg Iiir*.
One would hardly imagine tbut the
professional thief would be swayed In
his doings by superstition. It Is difficult lo conceive, for Instance, nu arm
ed burglar, u man who breaks Into
yuur bouse with tbe filed intention of
patting a bullet iuto yuu or hitting
you over the head with a jimmy if you
surprise hitu nnd try to prevent bis
escape, beiug deterred from carrying
out bis nefarious plans by ibe sight of
n Iduck cat, yet this is one of the small
things of life which are regarded by
thieves as sufficiently Important to upset a well luid scheme.
Some three or four years ago a gang
of three men had decided to break into
tho office of a large factory aud make
au attempt on the safe. At certain
times, ns tbey bad found, a lurge sum
of money was kept In tbat safe for a
day or two, and on this occasion tbey
bad resolved to divert this money from
going into Ita proper channel uud turn
the stream toward themselves.
All the circumstances seemed favorable. Tbe factory was In a lonely part
and not far from the railway, where
the rut tie of passing trains would
drown any noise tbey might make uud
where it wus highly Improbable that
they would meet auy one ns they made
their way late at night to the aceno of
notion. Tbey hnd nearly reached the
factory when a cat started from a
corner and ran across their path, and
by the light of the in jn which peeped
forth at tbat very minute they saw
that It was black. Immediately they
Afler some discussion one of them refused to proceed and went hack, while
the others, although tbey were nervous at the thought of 111 luck, went on.
They were caught ln the very act of
drilling a bole In the safe door and sentenced to long terms.
Tbe sound of a child Bobbing at night
In a house near the one Into which he
Intends to break Is quite enough to
uiake many a burglar go bnck home.
It Is a sure sign of misfortune*. Why
this should be so regarded Is not easy to
determine, but perhaps tbe Idea of Innocence usually associated witb Infants has some uudeflned effect upon
the hardened heart of tbe criminal.
There are some who regard the sudden stopping of a clock as an Intimation thnt some friend or relative bas
died at tbat minute. In the same way
If a clock stops ln a room in which a
burglar Is at work be will consider It
advisable .to leave the premises without delay. This occurred to a man
who wns recently convicted, ond he
sorrowfully remarked to tbe policeman who took him Into custody that If
he hnd paid heed to tho III omen he
would just have got clear before the
master of tbe bouse returned.

Once a second lieutenant of American regulars was up for examination

These arc tbe kind of bills or kops
that confront the Tommies In South

actual warfare, they run mostly toward the top of the hilts. These bills,
many of them, are about as nearly perpendicular on all sides as they can be

ibe horse laugh and defied capture; as
night was approaching it was deemed best
for tbe young lady to return—a matter of
two or three miles—and send n gentle-
tnnii friend of Clarence's back to help
capture the steed; this was done but the
two boys bad no better success, and Clarence wns obliged to take Foot St
Walker's bus line bnck to town. The
horse relumed when he got ready, A

A Peregrinating " Doctor," with lhc Eloquence
of a Demosthenes, Has Thrown Them
Into a World ot Pear.
Last Tuesday night a traveling " do-
tor," whose principal stock iu trade was
a flow of language like unto tbe music of
tbe waters of a purling brook, animate
and inanimate anatomical figures, the
latter illustrating the architectuie and
inner construction of the human form
and ihe former giving illustrations of
* What I don't know about ban), playing," and the perpetration of stock
gags, appeared in Cranbrook. In addition to these attractions, tbe doctor bad
a big grip filled with choice specimens of
canned " fruit," kindly contributed to
him by various people Ibrouglu ut
the world io be exhibited to the confiding public ns frightful examples of Ibe
kind of companions most every man,
woman and child is nourishing and harboring in secretin the labyrinthan passages of ihci' Internal Improvements
Up to that time Cranbrook was the
happy possessor of a Inige number of
stalwart young men, who kuew not the
meaning ol a day's illmss, ache or pain
But a ni irked change has came over
tbem, and ihey appear to be going into
a rapid decline. They were ull right
at least lhey thought tbey were—unlil
the doctor came with his wandering min
sir els nnd disillusionised Ihem.
As before stated, the doctor had plats
of tbe internal streets and alleys and lo
cations of the principal business points of
man's corporation, showing (he haunts
and lurking places of insidious mousters
who, hitherto unknown to the owner,
were living In various portions of his
private structure anywhere from the
basement to the upper flats—these monsters being either a parenchymatous en-
lo.oa, bothriacephalous latus, or a plain,
everyday taenid solum, which was wearing out the framework of their hnbita
tious, tearing the paper off the walls and
breaking down all the partitions, aud in
addition actually taking all victuals out
of thc landlord's mouth, so to speak,
leaving him nothing with which to repair the damages inflicted upon thc tenement by this insatiable monster. No
wonder Crauhrookers nre looking sad
and dejected when they know they are
taking such a thing to bed with them
every night.
Yesterday morning Jack Hurley met
Harry Nevin. and noticing that he appeared quite solemncboly, be nsked Harry to tell him his troubles. Hany said
he was worried; while in the baseball
match at Rosslaud he had a serious fall,
and was completely knocked out for a
lime, and had not been able to account
for it, but he now knew; he was packing
around with him a hotbriacepbalus lotus,
and the ungrateful wretch, not beiug satisfied with beiug well boused nud fed and
clothed bad got his back up about something and ran upstairs and wound himself around his windpipe aud choked
him. He said further that he knew that
was what ailed McDougal when he butted his head into the third base—he had
a taenia solum, which wnsalsoastrangler
v hen enraged.
Jim Kerrigan was also noticed to he
wearing a tired expression and upon being questioned said lhat he had uot been
feeling well for a long time; be bad ouce
drank some circus lemonade and often
thought it contained a parasite of the
pacydcrmntous order, and he thought
that was quite bad enough; since listening to the doctor he was feeling quite
hopeless—he kuew it was a parenchyma
tous eutoza.
Clarence Miner snid he thought lhat
he hada pet ichthyuphthalmite corralled
withiu him but was astounded to learn
through the doctor's lecture that a hotbriacepbalus latus was wearing his brand,
and said be did not now blame the pony
for ruunlng away and leaving bim on the
Bank Manager Parker said he bad for
a long time been fostering an ichthyo
dorulite, but had never thought in> thing
of a little thing like that, but he knew
uow that he had been mistaken aud tbat
it waa instead oue of those frightful
monsters, a taenia solum, and he disconsolately wended his way lo " Billy"
Curd's to have his will drawn.
Jim McMullin, Jimmie Hunter and
Loug Oliver all had a similar tale.
Many others uf the boys about town
are in the same fix. If the doctor und
bis musical talent hod only stayed awuy
from Craubrook th-.se people would huve
been happy today, for surely, iu a case
of this kind, ignorance Is bliss Fortunately few of the ladies heard Ihe doctor's address aud do not know lhat they
are a prey to the fuimidable parechymu-
trous eutoza, or auy of his sisters brothers, cousins or aunts, aud it is devoutly
hoped they will not find it out.
The doctor's visit bus served to demonstrate what has heen proved over aud
over since the creation of Adam—thnt
there is a sucker born every minute, and
lie always bites.
