' BKATTI.1C, Amb. 21. Tho steamer George K.
j- fVrr, from Hkairuny, arrlvod In Seattle thin
rddrnlnff, bringing four men direct from tho
Klondike. Their names are Kd Thorp, fleorfto
K Stewart, Joe Wlnterhold, Hchvvntka, tho In-
R . dlan guide, and Jack lloss.
: j They left Dawson on Jul? . coming up the
j f Tukon and Pelly Hirers, reaching tho latter
ft i rlrer on the 17th, and thence over the Dalton
, 2? ' trail to 8kngimjr, which placo they reached on
ii ; Aug. 12. This Is tho trail over which Thorp's
i i ! cattle passed In going to the Klondike.
f ij , The arrival of the steamer being anticipated,
ii V , ther was a large crowd of pcoplo at Arlington
' J dock, eager to obtain the latest nows from the
I -7 , gold fields, and the men when they landed were
,MJ i surrounded and piled with hundreds of que.
I tlons. Ther rould hardly get time to greet their
I , Immediate friends and relatives, and gave era-
Mt ! ' lire answers to questions regarding Uio amount
', ef gold brought out with them,
k ; They said tbsy camo for the purpose of buying
v A. prorlslons to the amount or seven or eight tons
fla '( on account of the shortage at Dawson, but
IsflLy J when they reached Skaguay and saw the block-
ittf J f ada of provisions ther concluded that a smaller
mUf, i I amount would answer till spring.i
Hj1 J j Thoy announced their purposo of returning as
Hi ) soon as they made personal business arrange-
Mm ments and could outfit themselves.
H' As far as could bo ascertained (they brought
M with them from $20,000 to $10,000 In
It '1 gold. They nro not iih communica-
H 3 tire as tho miners who came tlonn
' M on the Portland. All seem disposed to
Hi if beep their own counsel, but nt the same time
f. jB they said they were perfectly satisfied with tho
lift jft country, and hare arranged to return ou tho
flj ij Starr on her return trip In a fewdajs.
II Joe Wlnterhold, the oldest mlnoriti tho party,
jlf 1 grUxled and rough tn appearance, won found to
m) i be more communicative than his companions.
m t He (aid that their claims wore on Bonanza
i J Greek, a short distance below the discovery, and
B: 5 they wore working them very successfully nnd
D; J to tnelr own satisfaction.
"Wo brought out enough money," he said,
1 "to buy plenty of grub, perhaps $20,000 or
mi f such a matter.
V h , He said transportation companies had failed
Mt ft every season thus far to get in provisions
r B enough to last all winter, and hn doubted
) y whether they would succeed much better this
r fr winter.
& Stewart, replying to Inquiries as totheposst-
m S .bllltyof the men at Skaguay Rotting through,
' ft said tbeywero doing tho best they gnaw how,
; R hut he doubted very much whether naif of them
K if would accomplish the Journey to the Klondike
U , this winter.
r B He said that Whito pass trail was cut through
a ' to the lake and is being cordnroyed In the
Mm. V worst places. He saw but little organization,
i 0 and thought It was every fellow for himself.

K and only 600 at Dyea, which is being deserted

-:, The day the steamer arrived at Dyea was an
4 j eventful one. The body of a white man was

xtlsht Plantations Withdraw and n Trill Set
Honolulu, Atig.l5,via San Francisco, Aug. 21
Mr. Claua Spreckcls has scored flrstbloodln his
fight against tho sugar planters on tho Islands
who havo antagonized the Sugar Trust. Last
week tho local sugar combine received a shock
owing to the withdrawal of O. H. Davles& Co.,
local agenta fur eight plantations, from the
combine. This means tbat the sugar fruru these
eight plantations will hereafter be sold to Mr.
Spmkel. Some time ago It was predicted that
before the end of the year Mr. Sprockets would
get hold of this super.
The other members of tho combine accuse
Darles & Co. of had faith In tho matter. Mr. P.
O. Jones, President of the combine, does not
think tho dofecttou of the plantations controlled
bv Dnvlrs will have any effect upon the
other plantations. He says it had long ago
been decided It would bo unjust to the
friends of Hawaii In the United States
to havo anything to do with the trust. "Tho
arrangements made for Bhipping sugar to Now
York." said Mr. Jones, "are quite satisfactory,
and we shall make about 70 cents or 91 a ton
more than we did undor the old contract. We
shall send some of our sugar around the Horn,
andhare arranged to send some of It overland
by roll. Rates aro satisfactory.
" In another way shipping to Kew York Is an
advantage. We do not como into competition
with California beet sugar growers. I do not
consider that Davles & Co. have behaved well In
the matter, as their representative was present
at all our meetings and know what wo wore
going to do. Howovcr, I don't think the rest of
us will stiff er and the Davles plantations will
not net as much money as ours will."

Ex-Mayor William R. Grace announced yes
terday that he and his friends of the old State
Democracy would support a Democratic candi

not too strong an adherent of Tammany Hall.
"Wo will support the Dcmocratlo candidate

I mean a man who Is not a dyed-ln-the-wool
Tammanylto. This is a Dcmocratlo year, and
if tho typo of man I suggest Is named I do
not doubt that he will be elected. The only
mistake the purty can make, outside of naming
a poor candidate. Is to lend Itself to a wholesale

to bo out of tho question Just now."
Mr. Grace was asked if ex-Postmaster Dayton
came up to his ideal of the Democratic Mayoralty
" Ho would get my vote," ho replied, "and I

Mr. Graco added some words in praise of

that the ticket would not be named without

ler's ttetrnto for the Hanging or a "PJ-
Havana, Aug. 18. When, three weeks ago,
tho Cuban General Adolfo del Castillo hanged, a
few miles from Havana, tho Spanish spyMlguel
Bcntollotaniourt, ho did not realize to what
fearful rev ctii-o from Gen. Weyler he expocl
several defenseless persons In the capital, and
among them a hapless Cuban woman.
The news of lleato's fate, which was cabled to
Tub Su.v, was recelvod hero wlih great Joy by
all Cuban sympathizers. Bcato. feigning to
an agent In Havana of the New York Junta.
Inspired the eonlhlenco of the enemies of Spain
in Havana, and ho discovered tho secrets of
thoso Cutnns who wero helping the revolution
In the very stronghold of Spain. He denounced
to Wo)ler many prominent men of Havana,
who are now suffering in the dungeons of Ceuta
and Chafarlims, nnd also the heroic Cuban
woman, Ana Potolongo. and that bravo young
man, Armando do loa Rlos, who had suffered
with unbounded courage the most barbarous
tortures over Invented by the Spanlnrds.
Ueato's punishment was therefore deserved.
He tried onco moro to deceive the Cubans, and
went totho camp of Gen. Acosta to propose to
him a plnn for tho escape of Ana Syotolongo, now
held a prisoner In the houso of " Rccogldas."
On two previous occasions Beato had pro
posed the same plnn, and tho last tlmo. In
evident ronnlvanco with tho Spanish po
lice, ho secured tho escape of Ana Hotolongo
and concealed her In a houso In Agulla street,
were her Cuban friends called to offer her some
help. That was all what Beato desired. In a
few dnv s ho knew tho persons who s) mpnthlzed
with Ann. The Spanish police nrrosted them,
und when no moro use could be made of the poor
woman In tholono house sho was rearrested and
sent again to the Rccogldas.
This was enough for Gen. Arostn. As his only
answer to lleato's new proposals for thn nscapo
pf tho woman hn ordered ono of his soldiers to
bring n rope nnd haneed Beato to tho nearest
cunslma, n treo of this country which Is popu
larly called tho gnrrotc of the Insurgents.
Now Ana hotolongo ts expiating tho death of
Beato. Tho poor woman Is questioned by tho
Fiscal, or Stiiinish military attorney, under
threats that the tortures inftlctod upon Rlos will
be repeated upon herself. Rlos. who wns Impris
oned together with Ana Sotolongo. both upon
the chnrge of conceding a large amount
of dynamito In a house on San Rafael street,
suffered In his coll tho fearful torture
known as tl romjwnf e. A soldier, armed with a
long manatl, beat him until ho fainted. When
ho enmo to his senses ho was asked by tho
Spanish agent who wero his accomplices. "I
nm tho only responsible person," always an
wcred the heroic Rlos. "and I had that dynmlte
for tho purpose of killing as many Spanish
tyrants asliould." Then the torture was re
newed, but not a word moro was obtained from
The report Is now circulating that the threats
against Ana Potolongo of Inflicting on her the
same punishment have been carried Into effoet.
It Is certain that the Spanish agent, since tho
death ot Beato. has been very nctlvo in the pro
ceedings agnlnst Ann Potolongo. and that he
had been for hours together closeted In n cell of
the Houso of Rccogldas with the unfortunate
woman patriot. She is accused now. besides, of
ail anarchical plan to blow up with dynamite
the whole city of Havana, of carrying on from
her prison n correspondence with the Cuban
Junta of New York and with tho Cuban patriot
women, Seflorlta Clcmencia Arango and ScfSo
rltn blgarroa, who havo been expelled from
Cuba bv Gen. Wcylcr, and now reside in the
Mrs. Ana Sotolongo is a woman about 30
years old. Ten vcars ago she married a Cuban
much older than herself, from whom she Is now
separated. They have two children, a boy and
n girl. Upon Mrs. Sotolongo's Imprisonment
she had the children sent to relatives e.t Key
West. She is a Cuban by birth, and har alw ays
been an ardent patriot.

cause, they say, ho constantly annoys the Cap-tnln-General
with petitions for clemency, and
tries to interfere in military operations Inn way
that is favorable only to the Insurgents. Tho
real causo of theso attacks Is the stronir
protest of the Bishop tn the case of tho town of
La Esperanza, doomed to starve by Gen. Wey
ler. nH nrevlouslv rennrtrt in Tiik Pnv. Thn
Captain General Is very angry over tho publica
tion of tho news and attributes It to the Bishop.
Assassinations ar dally occurring hero by

About 500 paclficos have entered Havana

hood of Tampa, Flu., and has again notified the
Collector of Customs nt that port to exercise
vigilance that tho neutrality and the navigation
laws may not be violated. A sharp watch has
been kept on the alleged filibustering steamer
Dauntless, as It vv as thought sho was about to
tnko out an expedition. She sailed from Jack
sonville on the 18th, and before her departure
was thoroughly searched bv tho Collector of
Customs. No nrms or ammunition wero found,
however, and she carried only ner usual crew of

Reynolds Locked I'p Tor Too Knthnslastlcally
erring Ills Kmployer.
Patriok Reynolds of 250 West Thirty-ninth
street, who is known ns a "puller" for an
installment concern, started out last night
to look for a negro minister who had paid
only a few Installments on a fancy clock,
Reynolds's job was to "pull" tho clock
out of the minister's houso nnd return It
to the sellers. The Installment puller seldom
asks questions. Reynolds was no exception to
the rule. Ho had been told that the minister
lived at 304 West Fortieth street. Ho went
there, and found a ground floor door open.
lie walked into a room whero he saw a fancy
clock like the one ho was looking for. Ho
seized the clock. As ho was going out the occu
pantof tho rooms. Mrs. Magglo Mustcn, camo
from an ndjolnlug room.
"Stop thief!" sho yelled, for sho owned tho
clock, and belloveu tho man was trying to steal
It. "Stopthlof! Turn's rar clockl''
"All clocks look alike to mc," said Reynolds,
laughing, as he got out on the street.
Ho wns caught by Detective Pcpnerted. who
heard tho woman's screams. Mrs. Musten ox
plained that sho had bought the clock and had
paid for It. Sho did not know nnythinir about
the clock that Reynolds was looking for. He
admitted that he had mado a mistake, but ho
was taken to the West Forty-soventh streot po
lico station and locked up on n charge of larceny.
THE GERTRUDE RUTLEDGE BUXK.
Her Crew Picked Cp by thn nrlsantlae Lira
Atlantic Citt, N. J., Aug. 21. The crew of
the Rrlgantlne Life Saving Station picked up
to-day tho crew of tho two-masted schooner
Gertrude Rutledge, which sunk In eight fathoms
of water, nine miles east-northeast of this city,
nbout 5 o'clock this morning.
Tho Rutledgo was bound for Wnshlnglon, D.
C, nnd was coal laden. She sprung n leak sev
eral miles up tho coast. Tho water gained bo
fast that tho crew was compelled to abandon
her. Tho schooner sank a few minutes after
they left her.
Sickness Amons the Clty-a Illson.
There is somo danger that the city may lose
Its herd ot bison presented by tho late Austin
Corbln. A stomach complaint baa broken out
among them, of which one cow Is dead, a young
bull Is at tue point of death, and several other
animals are seriously 111. To the lack of pastur
age In Van Cortlandt Park, where they have
been grazing, this Illness among the bison is
attributed. It Is thought that under the pres
ent condition of oastumge tho herd will not in
crease, and if this supposition prov cs to be w ell
founded, their removal bick to the Corbln pro
serves in Now Hampshire is probable.
