Bark County of Merioneth Has Hard
Stripped From Stem to Stern Off Cape Horn
-Shitting Cargo Add? to Dangers
One Man Injured.
Washington, Nov. 23. Governor
Brady of. Alaska In, his annual report,
pleads for statehood, Government es
tablishment and bperatton of cable and
telegraph lines, arid persistent brand
ing of femalo "seals and cessation or
Wiling them for at least ten years. An
appropriation of $100,000 Is asked for
n penitentiary and suitable public
buildings at Sitka. The Governor says
that to preserve the seals the United
States should own n property right In
the seals and brand tho letters "V. S."
four Inches long on every female seal,
thus spoiling them for fur seals, this
branding to bo done by a force of ex
perts to bo sent out by tho Government
with tho latest electrical appliances.
Governor Brady says: "Within n
very few years there will be hosts of
busy people here, Intelligent and aspir
ing, bono of our bono and flesh of our
llesh. When thoy send their petitions
and knock at tho doora of Congress,
what are tho Eastern statesmen going
to say7 Will they bo bidden to cntor or
will they bo kept waiting until hope
dies? Our Eeastcrn friends should not
feel alarmed about tho growing Impor
tance of Western Influences und pre
ponderances ot votes In tho halls of le
gislation. It is inevitable, rrue, Alas
ka Is detached, and this Is why wo look
to you nioro confidently. Swift steam
ships and cables annihilate distances.
"Tho doctrlno that a territory, much
less a district, cannot plead any con
stitutional rights beforo Congress ap
pears now to bo generally accepted, but
representatives should remember that
tho population which Is now horo and
which Is coming was brought up In tho
States. Wo have had tho Constitution
preached to us from our childhood, and
It Is unbearable for us to think that wo
arc to live beyond tho palo of its in
fluenco and yet bo within tho boundar
ies of tho United States. Statehood
appears to be tho only remedy. Alaska
Is large enough for many ctates. It
might bo admitted with definite provi
sions that as tho population advanced
within certain areas now states could
bo created. Peoplo can attain, under
our form of government, their great
est degreo of political happiness under
state and not territorial rule."

A terrific galo was blowing JYom north

All hands were kept on tho poop and

London, Nov. 25. All the news from
Lndysmlth must bo discredited, unless
It comes by pigeon, when thcro aro
three missing links In tho broken
chain of communication with tho coast.
A fourth break has not yet been reported-
between the cnpltal of Natal
and tho seaboard. But at tho worst,
Englishmen will bo nblo to consoto
themselves with tho reflection that tho
Boers cannot go outsldo ot Durban
without plunging Into tho sea. Thero
nro .vaguo reports of heavy artillery
firing here nnd spirited skirmishes
thero, but tho curtain was not lifted at
midnight high enough to enable any
ono In London to obtain n clear gllmpso
of what Is going on.
The situation in Natal Is not so criti
cal as tho panic mongers imagine Tho
raiders havo not entrapped any detach
ment ot tho relief column nor mado an
effective attack at any point. Every
Important river crossing below Est
court has been securely gunrded, nnd
tho column Is receiving reentorccments
rapidly from tho coast nnd Is slowly
pulling Itself together. General Lytlo

demonstration Is hardly moro than a

method of harrasslng and blocking tho

list has not been seriously increased
and the number of officers Is not dtit of

Among tho wounded tho most conspic
