One Thousand Miles of Icy-
Road Travelled, and All
on Foot.
Victoria, B.C., May 16.���The report
of Lieutenant .losepli S. Herron, of
the Eighth U. S. cavalry, who, with
a small command wns supposed to
have been lost in the McKinley range
of mountains in the far north, which
the war department will shortly publish,will furnish a narrative of heroic
endeavor in overcoming viclBsitudes
of climate and obstacles met with in
unexplored regions scarcely equalled
since the famous Lewis and Clarke
expedition. Deserted by guides,
caught in the toils of winter's iee antl
snow, traversing a country nevci before pressed by the feet of white men,
Lieutenant Herron and his men exhibited unusual fortitude and endurance. The party,in beginning its arduous trip, made some initial explorations in the Cook's Inlet country,
finally being landed by a steamboat
at the head of navigation on the Kee-
chain, hitherto unknown nnd unexplored. The object was to discover the
most practicable route to the junction
of the Yukon with the Tanana. Thc
tlrat objeet was to get through the
Alaskan range, a rim of enormous
peaks and glaciers seventy miles wide,
extending across Alaska and constituting the chief barrier to the interior.
Moose and bear were abundant, and
furnished the party with fresh meat.
The crest of tlio divide was crossed
In .1 ��ly, 18(111. A few days Inter the
two Indian guides deserted and went
back to the coast, and Lieutenant
Herron wns forced to use the compass
and the sun. September frosts killed
vegetation, and tho paokhorses with
the expedition were fed on Hour. Provisions were lost in ditrerent ways,
one ludrierous Incident of the journey
being the plundering expedition of
a lug brown bear, which got away
with fifty pounds of bacon. Subsequently it was killed and eaten.
Eventually the mountains were left
behind and a tribe of Indians wns
discovered. For two months Lieutenant Herron and the live men with
bim were compel led to remain with
tho barbarous natives before he could
figure a way out to civilization. During this time ho learned the language
of the tribe in order that ho might
gain all possible knowledge of the
country yet to be explored, and by so
doing worked the rescue of himself
aid men. Their food was all gone
and their clothing worn out. The
horse blankets wore made Into rough
and ready trousers, socks, mtts, etc.
They depended on game nnd fish to
keep them from starving. The Indians were hospitable, but required
careful muniigcmont.
Late in Novomber, with tho rigors
of nn ioy Arctic winter closing over
the country, accompanied by four Indian guides, llcrron's party again
started. Nine dogs hauled such tin
pediments ns yet remained to the expedition. Hilling the extremely cold
nights the men bivouacked on the
ground, using their snowshoes ns
.hovels to make a snow bulwark
against tho wind, and burning (Ires
all night to keep from freezing, On
December 11 the explorers reached
their objective point, the junction of
the Toniinn nnd Yukon rivers, af'.cr
having passed flvo months nnd eleven
days on tho trail. The party had
traveled 1,000 miles, all on foot, over
a country so rough that the Indian
guides from the const turned back In
despair. Icy rivers had been forded,
perilous canyons crossed nnd mountains of loo and snow surmounted.
Tlie primary object of Lieutenant
llcrron's expedition wns to find an
available all-American route into tho
center of Alaska from the open harbor of Coon's Inlet,'and he Is dimly
convinced that he has found It. He
has performed a grout service to tho
future comniccrial Interests of Alnskn.
He claims for his route the following
advantages: First, It pierces the
center of Alaska, and, second it
touches  navigable  points and winter
promising of Alaska.
EMBARGO ON STEAMERS
Picvalenco of Smallpox Causes Issuance oi New   Regulations.
Seattle. Wash., May 10.���For the
second time within thc yenr almost,
Alaska boats have an embargo placed
upon them in the way of quarantine
at Diamond Point near Port Town-
send. Tlio new regulations just ordered amount to a quarantine against all
Alaskan ports on account of the smallpox which has developed in the north.
Dr. H. II. Foster, chief quarantine
officer, today officially declared and
notices will follow accordingly that
all Alaska steamers nnd vessels arriving from the north must cnll at the
quarantine station for inspection.
Official reports from various poits
of Alaska are to the effect that smallpox exists and is rapidly spreading,
which has made such  steps necessary.
The order will result in some hours
loss of time to ull returning steamers
from the north, but it will have the
effect of lessening greatly the danger
from bringing infoetioua disease into
any of the ports of Puget Sound.
Smallpox in its customary mild
character on the Sound is already
mildly prevalent, mainly through the
country districts of tbe Sound, but
not to occasion any alarm from any
particular section. According to reports from the north it is not fatal
in that section. A great many eases
have appeared among the natives
about Hitka, but in veiy few cases
has it proved fatal. There is some
rtouhl about the infection being smallpox.
TO REACH    THE ARCTIC.
Steamer   Eric   Purchased for   Fourth
Cruise to the North.
Halifax, N. S��� May 10.���The Peary
Aietic club has chartered for its
work next summer thc steamer Eiic,
Intelv purchased from Ihe Hudson Bay
oorapauy by Captain .lames A. Farqu
liar of Halifax. The cruise of 1901
tvl.I be the fourth in the series under
tlie auspices nf the elub in Lieutenant
Peary's lindortaklng to reach the
pole. Tho Eric will sail from Sydney, N. 1!., abont tlio middle of July,
and will return, it is expected, about
two months Inter with full details of
what lias ocourred during thc two
years since Peary has been heard
from; also with Information of the
lute of the Windward, upon which
Mrs. Poary and Miss Peary sailed
from Sydney last yenr.
The Eric will take sufficient supplies for her own party for a year and
a surplus, if it be necessary to leave
any at. the north. The Erie, a bark
rigged steamer of BID tons, Ib the
largest yet employed in tho Arntio
service, was built at Dundee for her
owners, und wus offered for sulo to
Lieutenant I'uury in London in January, 18H-, about the time the Windward wns given to him by Mr. Harms-
worth.

THE FLOOD IS RAGING
Railroad Bridges Are Washed Away and
the Trains Are  Delayed  for
Several Hours.
Cottonwood Creek Booming and Electric
Light Dam Is in Imminent Danger
of Being Swept Away.
Notwithstanding the wail that
there is no special amusement or
recreation on Thursday afternoon the
third mid-week holiday will long be
remembered as one producing excitement enough to satisfy the average
inind. Three shacks, in the Cottonwood creek gulch, one containing a
man fryiug his beefsteak for break-
fast, who was only rescued from
drowning by means of a handy
plank, three bridges swept away, two
others In imminent danger, and the
danger Increasing every I1 our of the
bursting of the electric powerhouse
dam, all crowded into one day's programme, is surely interesting enough
especially to those who are paying for
the sport.
On Wednesday evening it was rumored that the dam at the power
house was In danger of giving way at
any moment, and the danger has
since been greatly magnified by the
thirty-hour rain which has swelled
Cottonwood creek to such an extent
that it has become a miniature Niagara.
Early yesterday morning the foot
bridge aorosB the creek was wrecked,
as was also the one near the power
house. About the same time two
shacks which were erected on the
bank of the creek were washed away
and stranded on the rocks in the bed
of the creek. One of the buildings
belonged to Mr. Bowman, nn employee of the electric power company
who was frying bis beefstenk for
breakfast when the deluge curried
him down the stream, nnd it wus
only by means of a handy plank that
he was rescued. Later In the day another shuck belonging to a Chinaman
followed suit, and there are othois to
follow. In this ono respect the Hood
is but an auxiliary to tho city council In its crusade against the shacks
and the ones destroyed were among
tho ones they wore endeaovring to
eradicate.
A far more serious condition of
things prevailed around the C. P. B.
depot, where the water had risen to
a level with the railway tracks. At
noon the stroom was running with
terrlfflo force against the railway
crossing and threatened later to
wash away tho tracks or flood tho
stiu ion yard. A considerable quantity
of water did escape along thu track
and was rapidly gaining when a
large force of men and teams wero
put to work to dam the torrent on the
west side of the crock hy means of
sand bags, bridge tiinours and boulders. This had the effect of confining
the waters for some time, but ultimately they broke loose on the east
side and Hooded the Huts around the
old depot, until at sunset It had developed Into a miniature hike.
At midnight last, night the waters
were still rising and had overflowed
tbo breakwater formed during the day
necessitating the formation of an outer dam, which work was being proceeded with at that hour.
The creek Is obviously too narrow
to carry away such a body of wuler
at wus wildly galloping down Its
course yesterday and the obstruction
of the railway bridges have manifoldly Increased the dillicuiy.
For a while It was feared that the
city would be left in darkness, as for
a time both the gns works and the
dam at the power house wero lineal
oned. To relieve the danger at. the
power house the electric lights wero
turned on enrly In the day and ran
all day. The gUB works were In even
greater dsnger, as their mnln pipe
wns built into the bridge already referred to as wrecked. Dining the
morning, therefore, a temporary  con
nection was mnde, which avoided the
shutting off of the city gas in case tho
main pipe succumbed to the raging
torrents; but it, was not until four
o'clock yesterday afternoon that the
citizens had their gas turned on.
The lawn tennis ground, too, camo
in great danger of being destroyed,
as one corner of it bad already been
submerged when a number of men
were set to work digging trenches,
tnus relieving the danger for the time;
but. if the water continues to rise tho
next twenty-four hours ut the rate it
has done for the same previous period,
the lawn tennis court will not be the
only thing destroyed.
The trnin service wns not materially affected except, the Nelson & Fort
Sheppard train which ususally arrives
in Nelson nt 7 o'clock. Early in thc
afternoon word was received at The.
Miner ollice that the bridge nt Five
Mile point wns washed away together
with both the Great Northern and
C' P. R. tracks, and therefore the
Spokane train wonld arrive at and depart from the Mountnin station. Sub-
sequontly, however, it was learned
that the train had struck a mud slide
beyond Ymir and wns cancelled,
otherwise nil the trains arrived and
departed on time und reported no
casualties,
The newly created falls and rapids
wero visited by crowds of people and
all day long their were many spectators, as well ns a large force of mon at
work at the power house.giis works and
C. P. B. tracks, who were kept busy
In cheeking Ihe raging torrent.
About noon the eity bridge across
the creek ou linker street wns anchored and also plncarded ns nnsufe,
and at tne time of writing It wns
being gardnally undermined, but
was still standing.
Tho water in the river has been rising since yesterday morning nt the
rate of almost one-half Inch every
hour and at 5 o'clock lust evening hnd
risen nine inches during the twenty-
four hours.
It is to he fnnred thnt the above is
only ono cbnpter in the story, and
may he attended with events of a
more serious character, as the waters
are still rising nnd carrying everything before them. Much snow has
disappeared during tho rain which
has materially increased tho dnnger
and doubtless today will produce
more Interesting developments thun
are recorded here.

" TRYIN.l TO  HOLD CALLAHAN.
Attorney     at      Omaha     Is     Making
Strenuous  Efforts.
Omaha, May III.���The conntry attorney  Is   milking   strenuous   efforts   to
hold .lames Callnhnn, the alleged kidnaper uf Edward Cudnhy, Jr., on
charges of perjury, and the attoriuy
for tho deftnee Is sparing no effort to
secure his release. Tomorrow Callahan will be arraigned before County
Judge Vinson Haler on the prejury
charge and the date for his bearing
will be set. The defense will ask for
a dismissal of the case and discharge
of the prisoner on tho ground that the
charge was disposed of in his acquittal by a jury in his recent trial for
abduction The charges of robbery
and grand larceny stila pending in the
district court against tho prisoner
will come up this week and will
doubtless be dismissed as there is now
no disposition to carry the case further, in view of Callahan's acquittal
in the first trial.
THE MID-WEEK
HALF HOLIDAY
HOARD OF HEALTH.
Council Met, Last Night   and   Ordered
Public Schools Closed.
The city council met last night ns a
board ol health, Mayor Fletcher and
all the aldermen being in attendance.
Among other nutters brought up
for discussion was the rcconnnenda-
lion of the health officer presented by
the city clerk, that the public school
be closed today and that the building
undergo a thorough fumigagtion until Monday, owing to the prevalence
of scarlet fever. After some discussion the recommendation of the health
officer was agreed to.
The matter of requiring the milk
dalres to have pure water in their
use in the dairying business was discussed, but as there had been no recent complaints, the matter was not
further discussed.
The chief objeet of the meeting was
to discuss the expense of keeping up
the isolation hospital, aud the cost of
its maintenance during the time the
smallpox patient was tinder the
charge of the council. The members
of the tinncne committee having gone
through the Items seriatum, considered that the maintenance accounts were
extravagant, quoting a number of In
stances where the amounts purchased
were more thun could be consumed by
a healthy person, let nlone n sick one.
Oue item in particular wns mentioned, whore a largo number of towels
hnd been ordered by the health department, and yet as Aid. Selous remarked "the council was not, worth a
towel." Other articles in equally
large and so far ns they could see, unnecessary quantities had bren ordered,
and although they hud, for the most
part, pnssed the neutron ts, ns tbey
were not Winning nny one In pnrlicu-
Inr, but wished to tlevise some plan
whereby the council or one of its
membcis would know what had been
ordered, as under tlio existing conditions they had uo knowledge until the
end of tho month, when the accounts
wero presented, what had been obtained.
Some discussion occurred on the
strength of some street rumors, In
criticism of the health officer, who
was supposed to have been derelict in
his duty. The mayor was opposed
lo any action being taken on a mere
stroet rumor.or the council being influenced in Hny way by what was suid
by every Tom, Dick or Harry, who
happened to come along. So far as he
had opportunity of knowing the work
of the gentleman in question, he had
always appeared to bu employing
his energies to the proper discharge
of his duties and claimed thnt they
hnd no right to lake him or anyone
else to task without n definite oliurgn
being preferred. So far as he could
see the matter, It appenretl to hiin to
bo nothing more than a piece of professional jealousy, nnd he thought
they hnd trouble enough without
hunting for It.
In reply to the stntmont of Aid.
Hamilton, thut the committee were
unanimously of opinion thnt the
charge of 8a a dny for a nurse wns exorbitant, the mayor Bald thoy miiflt.
taken into account thut the nurse had
done nil tho work, Including thu cooking. Thev might luivo engaged another nurse If there hud boon one to
ho hnd, but thoy would, In all probability, huve hnd to engage n cook
nlso, which together would hnvc cost
thorn more than they were now being
asked to pay. He had looked Into, the
cost of these things In other places
antl found that in Winnipeg their
smallpox cases hnd cost the city 80,110
and   in   Vancouver   It   hnd cost them
in tbo neighborhood of 116,000,   Thev
could not run across trouble of this
kind without it coaling them money.
Tin discussion ended by referring the
matter to the mayor for invest ign-
tion.
The meeting, lifter a little iIIsciik-
hlon on tho stable nuisance, adjourned to meet again at tlie call of the
chairman.
Although   It   Rained   Incessantly the Holiday Was
Observed.
The Few Who Remained Open
Were Lonesome and
Disconsolate.
Whether the big rainfall yesterday
afternoon on Nelson's third mid-week
holiday was the result of the prayers
of those opposed to the mid-week
half holiday movement,Tlie Miner has
no menus of ascertaining, yet one
thing is absolutely certain, that the
kickers who Ignored their written
agreement and remained open were
practically without customers. The
conviction is established, therefore,
that tho half holiday is one of Nelson's summer holidays.
Yesterday afternoon practically all
the stores closed sharp ut 12 o'clock,
and for the nmount of business done
by those who remained open they
might ns well have been closed. The
list of those who were determined to
remain open wus evidently the result
of u fervid imagination, as three or
four stores only remained open. Al
else���except tbe tobacco antl fruit
stores, which were not asked or expected to close, and one butcher shop
���were at twelve o'clock pu'ling
down their blinds and locking their
doors. Later in the afternoon two
more of the hardware storeH opened
up, but their clciks wero allowed to
kerp their half holiday. One of /the
storekeepers Is roportet] to hav.in-
formed tho other members of hisiicraft
that he intended to remain open.i.fEhe
answer he received was that be could
please himself, but they were going
to close, nntl close they did, until hnlf
past seven, nt which hour the drug
stores have agreed amongst themselves
to re-open.
The question is not one in whicn
the clerks huve a monopoly but is one
in which most of the prominent business men of the eity nre interested,
antl will he continued until the half
holiday will be one of the established
business rules of the city. When tbe
seven o'clock regulation was adopted
there wus the sume opposition und
from the sume point of tho compass;
but it passed nway. The people have
now become educated to do their shopping before that hour, so thut uny
merchant remaining open ufter 7
o'clock wonld huve such a lonely time
thnt wunt of business would compel
him to shut up his shop. Similarly,
when tho hot weather comes around
and a slackness of misincss pervades
the commercial atmosphere, owing to
the fuel that the other stores arc closed, and outsiders know thnt there Is
n bull' holiday in Nelson on Thursday
afternoon, and tlo their shopping in
thc morning, those remaining open
will wish they were out with the rest
enjoying themselves. A few experiences of this nature, and no customers
appearing.will induce them to fall Into line, and again the rule of common
sense will prevnil. Some of the iner-
chants who were inwaitlly opposed to
the project at the beginning ure now,
its most, ardent supporters, for the
reason that from a strictly business
standpoint they feel thnt by opposing
the movement they aro In danger of
losing more trade than they are likely to agin, Inasmuch as somo of their
beflt customers arc woikingmen with
families who ure influenced In their
dealings with tho mint-hunts on matters of this kind ; and, ns one business
man remarked yesterday, "a bird In
the hand is worth two In the bush,"
The iden expressod In regard to tho
hotelkeepers taking tho mnttor up is
simply laughed nt, because, in the
lirst plnce, the nrrnngement is not calculate.I to Injure their business in
any possible wuy; in the second place,
If the merchant!! of the city feol the
desirability, nnd Indicate n willingness to grant such a concession to,
their employees,it Is no one's business.
to Interfere with such an arrangement; and in the third place, the ho-
telinon of Nelson bave business instinct enougli to refrain from interference In the matter.

STOCK-TAKING   SALE.
Our fiscal year ends on the 31st of this month, and in order to reduce
our  stoo~. as much as possible before then we offer the  following-
SPECIAL
A POOR AUTHORITY.
The principle of railway susbidies
as parcticed in Canada for a great
many years past may be a wrong one,
but we require something more than
tbe assurance of The Canadian Gazette that the country : has been following a blind lead so loug and wasting its substance on a succession of
adventures before it will be accepted
as truth. We do not know what opinion of the matter is entertained by
The News-Advertiser, but it quotes
The Gazette to the effect that Canada
is on the high road to ruin because
of tbese subsidies. The situation is
so serious, indeed, that it is creating
alarm, antl it says "it were well if
this alarm were more widespread and
acted as a greater deterrent upon
Governments nnd politicians alike in
Canada." It adds: "Nobody can
watch Canadian affairs without regarding it as something of a calamity
that Canadian Legislatures should
find it bo ensy to provide the money
for a wasteful duplication of railway
facilities," and refers especially to
"recent political nianoeuverlngs" in
Manitoba and British Columbia.
The Gazette is published in London by a person who is and has been
tor severnl years a director of the
Canadian Pacific Company. It is little if anything more than an organ
of that Copmany. With this knoivl-
euge, we get a bettei understanding of
Its "wasteful duplication." A subsidy
to any railway in rivalry to the one
whose fortunes it is commissioned to
advance on all occasions must, of necessity, be wrong and is extremely
apt to be wicked. As long, however,
as subsidies were devoted to the Canadian Pacific, or to enterprises which
that concern was expected to absorb
in the natnral course of events, there
was no evidence of alarm visible to
Tbe Gazette; it was unable to detect
the least sign of "wasteful duplications." Uut because Manitoba has
taken its courage in Its two hands,
and by a bold effort hns provided for
genuine competition, the monopoly's
paper In London sees all sorts of danger and disaster. It will be able to
comfort itself, however, In respect to
British Columbia. There was a good
deal of "political manoeuveriug," no
doubt, but as It was made to turn to
the advantage of The Gazette's Company the editor-director will find himself once more contemplating life
with a reasonable measure of resignation.
If The News-Advertiser has views
of its own ou this question, the country will esteem itself happy to be favored with them; but It only makes
itself ridiculous by quoting The Canadian Gazette on matters affecting
the.interest of tho Canadian Pacific
Company. As well quote The Victoria Colonist on the   Dunsmuir   (iov-
erind-nt.

other people in the section taunted
and made fun of bim and one day in a
row which took place he killed a
man. The jury acquitted him and the
man waB discharged."
As all this contains reflection on the
administration of justice in Nelson,
it is necessary to put the matter right
We think that in Intelligence and
uprightness a Nelson jury will compare favorably with that in any other
part of the Province, and the twelve
men who sat in judgment on the
prisoner in question did not forswear
themselves, as implied in the above
extract. It is true it came out iu evidence that the prisoner had on frequent occasions exhibited strong British sympathy in the matter of the
Boer war; but tbe fact was not put
forward as a plea either in justification or mitigation In respect to the
slaying of the man Rowland. There
was no such del^m-e. Naturally the
fact was commented on, but the clr-
c.nins.ance that saved the prisoner was
the danger to his own life. He told
a straight stoiy, one tbat appealed to
the confidence of the Judge, jury,
and spectators alike, and In that
story he declared that he believed his
own life was in jeopardy nnd he consequently used the knife that by the
merest chance he happened to have in
his hand when assaulted. There
was not a particle of evidence to show
premeditation. He acted in self-defence, and believing this the jury acquitted him, as they were bound in
justice to do. That Is the simple fact
of the case, and we would be glad If
the Const newspapers would make a
note of it. It is not pleasant to think
that any Canadian jury would acquit
a man of wilful murder because of admiration of his patriotism, und we
distinctly object to such a reproach
being cast on a Nelson jury.
A   MISBEKPKSENTATION.
No one haB appeared to quite understand what the Dnnsinnir Government
expected Ottawa to do in the matter
of a joint railway policy. The Victoria Times has discovered it. It
says: "Tlie Province waa simply to
map out the routes, select the companies to build the Hues, control tbe
rates for freight and passengers, collect interest at the rate of three per
cent, on the mouey it loaned In aid of
the various works; all that was asked of the Dominion Government was
to approve of all these arrangements,
and pay over eight thousand dollars
for every mile of railway constructed,
asking for nothing whatever in return." Who can wonder that a "business Government" like Mr. Duns-
inuir's should feel indignant at having so reasonable a business propositi on as this rejected?
yesterday advanced from 81 to 81.75
per sack and the dealers say that further advances are looked for. Buyers
are scoring tbe inland empire, picking
up small lots or large ones, wherever
they can be found.
For some time it was suspected
there was a scarcity of this popular
food product, but not until the past
two days was the situation fully realized. Spokane being a center, inquiries fur the article are coming from
the coast, Oregon, Idaho and even
Montana, but for some time not one
of the orders has been filled. It is
the time when the old crop is off the
market und the new crop is not ready
to be delivered. The first new potatoes of the senson come from California,and as yet only one small shipment has been received. Another
small consigment is expected during
the latter part of next week. A considerable time will elapse before the
new crop can supply the heavy demand.
The merchants say the price will
undoubtedly go above S3. The scare
ity of old potatoes causes new potatoes to sell at an advanced price and
they will probably be quoted as low
as b5 cents per 100 pounds, but as the
season advanced the price did the
same.
Last spring the crop planted was as
large, if not larger, than previous
years. The crop obtained, however,
was much samller than had been anticipated. Last spring the same
scarcity was noticeable. A number of
years ago a scarcity caused the price
to go as high as 83.25 per sack.
A version of the murder trail that
was held here 11 few days ago, and
pasting current on the Coast, requires
_oi*e correction. It is given in The
yWeouVer World In these words;
'"'���E. P. Davis, K. C, returned yesterday from Nelson, where he appeared for the defence in thc murder trial
of James a. McGill des Revieres. In
this, the defence put up was ono of
the most unique on record in the
Province, or indeed, in the Dominiou
of Canada, There was no doubt that
the acoused shot James Rowland at
1'hocnix, three months ago; nevertheless the jury acquitted him after a
short deliberation. Tho defence took
the ground that the accused was living in a community where the South
African wnr question was strongly
pro-Boer,and he himself was a staunch
and patriotic Britisher. He expressed
his opinions, as he had a right to
do, as freely as the others expressed
theirs, and as a result, because of his
patriotic principles, he was the butt
of all the jokes of the camp and consequently submittJ^>_jnMi vhn^vlli-
We do not feel so eonlldent as The
Vancouver World thnt no railway
company will undertake a contract
under the terms of the Loan Act. Perhaps not 11s they stand, or as they ure
ut piesent understood; but as the design of the legislation was to throw
the contract to tho Canadian Pacific
Company, if to any, there need not be
great surprise if. nn agreement be
reached. It is wonderful the modifications that can be made in the terms
of a contract, when the parties to it
are the most loving of friends. As
for the Legislature, we are afraid it
is In the mood tu ratify anything the
Government may submit.

THE OUTLAW WAS KILLED
desperate and daring criminal hunt in northern
california.
I   DEAD OUTLAW WAS YOUNG DOR-
LAND,   MINING   CLAIM
SWINDLER.
s
I
*
Redding, May 111.���One of the most
desperate criminal hunts in the history of Northern California has ended
in the killing of one of the two fugitives, the fatal wounding of the Al-
tiiras constable and the miraculous
escape of the sheriff of Shasta county,
whose clothing was pierced seven
times by bullets.
Thursday evening Sheriff Charles
H. Behrena left Redding for the
north again to take up the tiail of
lien II. Dorland and I. C. Illin_s-
worth, who escaped from tho county
jail on April 0. At 5 o'clock this
evening the news came of the ending
of the chase in the following tele-
grain from Sheriff lichrens to Under
Sheriff J. L. Richardson :
"Adin, Cal., May 10.���Tracked
fugitives sixty-live miles. After a
hand-to-hand fight constable of Al-
,.'twas, was probably fatally shot. Sev-
%u bullets pierced my clothing. Came
out O. K. Dorland killed. Start for
Redding tomorrow.
"0. II. 11EIIRENS."
!��� No mention is made ol Illiugs-
J worth, but it is presumed he was easily taken, as he is a quiet man antl re-
.lied wholly upon the desperate Dorland.
Ken II. Dorland was about 28 years
old. He is a member of a prominent
fumily of Sault Ste. Marie,Mich., and
a valuable es'ate awaited him in Canada. He was a mining man and expert
..machinist. Two years ago ho cunie
fihere representing men of capital of
Sault Ste. Marie who wanted a mining investment. There were two companies. Dorland bought a mine on
Salt Creek for 87M), lopresentetl to one
company that he paid Sfi.OOO for it,
and received that amount of money
from the company. Ho got about 80,-
000 trom another company for a mine
which appears to have been wholly a
myth.
The mining companies growing
suspicious, sent Dr. W. W. Townsend
here to investigate. Dorland went to
San Francisco on the train on which
Townsend arrived. A week later he
was caught by Sheriff lichrens as ho
was preparing to boaul a steamer for
Soutli America. He was brought
back, tried for obtaining money un-
.der false preteneses and convicted. Ho
. was sentenced on April 10. Later
Dorland and I. 0. Illingsworth, a
blacksmith of Iron Mountain,who had
.been held for assault, worked a lock
t lending into the insane ward of the
country jail and, while the officials
wero at dinner,got into the courtyard,
fought down two young bloodhounds
kenneled there, scaled the high brick
wall covered with glass and escaped,
running through the streets to the
hills.
Sheriff Ilehrcns was out of town,
but his deputies were on the trail in
twenty minutes, norland's superior
knowledge of the country, however,
enabled him aud his companion to
elude pursuit.
Sheriff Ilehrcns has been on the
trail of the fugitives frequently since
then. Once he heard of them at a
cabin a mile back in the hills from
Delta. Ho reached the place'three
hours after they bad gone antl followed them on foot fot two days and
; nights. Miners who are friendly lo
; Dorland havo lent linn assistance .md
provided him and IlliugBWorth with
rilles, revolvers and provisions.
Four days ago news came that the
fugitives had been seen In Southern
.Oregon. Sheriff lichrens left Thursday ovening by rail for a secret destination. Dorland was known as a
keen, skillful and desperate man. and
he had.boasted thut he would never bo
taken ivlivc.

THEY ARE UKA-I-IED-
The'dii.otois of the public library
wish through the courtesy of The
Miner to offer their sincere thanks
for the handsome sum of money realized for their institution by the children's performance on Tuesday evening. To Mrs. Arthur, M. D., and to
the other ladies who so indefatigably
and successfully worked, their special
thanks are due. ill the little per-
formers acquitted themselves so admirably, the directors feel it would be
invidious to praise one more than another, but must add that they earnestly hope the career of Master Louis
Johnstone "as a soldier" or otherwise
may be as singularly successful as
were both bis singing and acting on
Tuesday evening.

"Napoleon, the Last
Napoleon Phase," by Lord
Rosebery is a suf-
flcientely important look to attract
the notice of the best customers of our
book counters. Great as has been the
mass of Napoleonic literature during
the last few years, there is no work
that lias reached a higher mark of
merit than Lord Rosebery's excellent
description of the last days of Napoleon. On every page the book bears
the marks of sincere research. It is
the sort of book whose vogue is uot
merely temporary. The price is 83.00
NevV Of    .nuking     books
-j      , there is no end. One
t-OOKS is   sometimes   sorry
for that, but a good cure for mind
sorrow is to read tlie following which
are quite new: Eveiy Inch a King;
Lest we Forget, by Iloekirg; The
King of Honey Island; On Peter's Island; The Third Floor; (iod's Puppets; The Duke; Tbe Men Furers; The
Cardinal's Ktise; Vengeance is Mine;
all price 7.5 cent, or to be read in our

THE NELSON BOAT CLUB���
A committee meeting of the Boat
club was held last night and good
progress reporter from every quarter.
An interesting programme for the
June regatta was decided on and the
committee will immediately go to
work to solicit entries lor four-oar
and other races but it is probable
that crews for the in-rigged and
canoe races will be mostly made up
on the spur of the moment. Notices
for entries are already out and it is
expected that a large number of new
men will compete in this year's races.
A general meeting; of the club is
called for Thursdny, May 23, In the
board of trade rooms at which it is
hoped that all members and those in
terested in acquaties will attend.
WORK DON'T HURT
Poor  .election  or Food  In  Hit-  Came or
Break -Downs.
Many men, antl women too, feel
that their work is tlie cttnse of sypm-
toms of nervous break-down,but work
Is not the cause, as any one can prove
to their entire satisfaction, by leaving off the food they have been trying
to subsist on, and taking in its place
food made for the express purpose of
rebuilding the brain and nerve centers
in the body and supplying other portions with siiHicient nourishment and
keep right on with the same work
and get well and strong.
An illustration is given in the case
of F. A. Whitely, Supt. of the Public
Schools at Excelsior, Minn. He Is ulso a student and teacher of hygiene.
He says: "This spring at the beginning of the last month of school, I was
very much run down, nnd since my
duties are quite confining, I naturally
ascribed my contllton to that. I discovered that I made the same mistake
that many do. It is not work, but a
lack of propel Food that causes breakdown. Wife went visiting ut this
time and I concluded to get my own
meals for a time. The grocer suggested that I use a ready cooked food
-known as Orupe-Nuts. I found the
.i.,food delicious, requiring no cooking.
��� 4 simply poured mWk or cream over It
and had it in that way.
I used Orupe-Nuts for breakfast,
dinner and supper, and liking it so
well I simply lived on it for the next
Ibrec weeks. My work continued quite
as arduous and coufinlng as before
but I experiencd a decided rise in
spirits and vitality as well as In general health. Found 1 did not tiro as
before and entirely lost that worn-
out feeling which seems to take the
heart out of one.
I am satisfied the change wus due to
my change in food,and I have been so
greatly helped and have been taught
so valuable a lesson in food as related
to the human body that I wish to express my appreciation In this manner." It will pay any brain worker
to dispense with a part of the ordinary diet and use Grape-Nuts once or
twice a duy at least, for the food is
made by food experts, for a purpose,
and that purpose is to furnish the
human system with the element, in a
concentrated form, required for ie��
builtllug the bruin nnd nerve centers
throughout the body. There Is no sort
of question of the truth of the statement and value of the food, as can be
demonstrated by anyone.
A DEEP MYSTERY.
It is a mystery why women endure
Backache, Headache, Nervousness,
Sleeplessness, Melancholy, Fainting
and Dizzy Spells when thousands have
proved that Electric Bitters will
quickly cure such troubles. "I suffered for years with kidney trouble"
writes Mrs. Phele Cherley of Peterson, la., "and a lame back pained me
so I could not dress myself, but Electric Bitters wholly cured me, and, although 73 years old, I now am able to
do all my housework." It overcomes
Constipation, improves Appetite,
gives perfect health. Only 50e. at

THE WORKED   STOPPED-
Investigntion of the report which
had been widely circulated yesterday
regarding tlie stopping of tlie work
of construction on the Lardo railway
confirms the report. Mr. Suilivau,
engineer of construction, received a
wiie from Montreal yesterday, authorizing him to stop all construction
work on the road until further orders.
Mr. Sullivan Is unable to give any
reason for the sudden change and is
not in a position to state whether the
postponement of the work will be of
short or long duration. It is understood that a large amount of supplies
have been already shipped, besides a
quantity of plant and machinery
and much surprise is felt at the cancellation of the work. Pal, Welch left
last night on the 0.40 Rossland train.
POLICE COURT NEWS.
One Man Would Rather Go to Jail
Thau (Jo Home.
There were three cases tried belore
Magistrate Crease yesterday. The
most important one was an assault
case, which revealed to the cruel gaze
of an unsympathetic world, the trials
of married life. The plaintiff and
defendant are man and wife, and are
accustomed to have their family jars
arbitrated and alrett In tho police
court, this being Henry Parkins' fifth
appearance on a similar charge by
the same person, viz., his better half.
Unlike previous occasions, his wife
appeared against, him, and testified
that he had struck her. He accused
her of having struck him with a club
and also had some grave accusations
against her regarding the unnecessary
employment of adjectives in her manner of speech, etc. The alTair was
pructlcally one of common assault,
and the magistrate evidently so regarded it hy giving judgment in favor of the lady In the transaction
and imposing a fine of 820 and costs,
or in default of payment one month in
jail. As he did not pay the fine he
will be kept at the expense of the city
for the next thirty days--a punishment evidently less despised by him
than returning home.
Another case which came up for
hearing was a charge of drunkenness
against a man named McCarty. The
usual fine wai imposed.
An appeal against a city by-law
waB brought up for hearing by W. H.
Ellin, which was adjourned until today.
