VICTIMS AT NOME
United States Commissioner Is
Believed to Have Perished.
JANUARY AND FEBRUARY STORMS
Recorder Ben Muller Anions the
„ Dead—Frightful Suffering
LDead— Frightful Suffering
of a Priest.
Special to The Journal.
Tacoma, Wash., May Nome papers
as late as Feb. 29 add one name, that of
Ben Muller, a well-known Seattle man,
who was the recorder in the Agiapuk dis
trict, to the list of those known to have
perished in the recent Nome blizzards.
Charles E. Gay, brother of United
States District Attorney Gay of Seattle,
and United States commissioner for the
i arctic district, was found badly frozen,
' and, according to last reports, was likely
to die before medical aid could reach him.
The report of Muller's death came to
Nome, Feb. lb. With a man named
Thomas, Muller left the Agiapuk village
for the headwaters of the river of the
same name, on Jan. -0. A medicine man
of the village was their guide. About
ten days later news was brought into Tel
ler by a native that Muller's frozen body
had been found on the river. Muller's
sister, Miss Lillian Muller, Is now in New
York city studying music and composi
The report of the freezing of Judge
Gay was brought to Teller by a reindeer
. driver. He stated that Gay was inland
about 100 miles, with both feet badly
frozen, and that he might die before med
ical aid could reach him. The man ad
vised against sending out any relief party
at the time on account of the severe
weather. Mr. Gay has been identified
with Captain Tattle of the Bear and Sol
G. Simpson and others of Seattle in the
'Lost Mine of that district. He, is a
. pieneer in that section, and was appointed
United States commissioner by Judge
: Noyes last summer. It is thought he was
•absent from his quarters at the time on
: business connected with the company. He
had intended to come out last winter to
•visit his relatives, and the failure on their
part to hear from him in the last mails
had aroused fears for his safety.
The storm seems to have raged from
the middle of January into the month
of February. Many were frozen so badly
that they will lose fingers or toes, but the
list of deaths will not be large.
On Feb. 10, in the Solomon river coun
. try, the snow was ten feet deep on a level
and drifted badly. Wood was scarce at
• that time, and many cases of suffering
were reported. Harry O'Neill and Adam
Sneider of Teller City were caught in a
blizzard during the early part of Feb
ruary while returning from Mary's Igloo
with a team of horses belonging to
Charles Lane. Both had to suffer ampu
tations of parts of their feet.
The Rev. Father Treca of Nome was
seriously frozen while on his way from
Unalalik to Shatolik. He had a native
-boy as a guide. The boy became ex
hausted, and the priest wrapped him in
a blanket and put him on a sled. By the
time he reached his destination the good
man was suffering severely. His face was
a horrible sight, having been frozen solid
by the biting wind. Only slight hopes
were entertained for his recovery.
Curly Judd, a Nome character, suf
fered two frozen feet, which it was
thought would have to be amputated.
Duke and Duchess of York Vow in
Melbourne, May 6.—The Duke and Duchess
of Cornwall and York landed from the
steamer Ophir at 2 o'clock this afternoon.
Melbourne, May 6.—The duke and duchess
■were received at the pierhead by Lord Hope
tomn, governor general, and the state and
federal ministers. After the ministers had
been presented, the party passed down a
quarter of a mile of carpeted pier and en
tered carriages surrounded by a guard of
honor composed of Victorian troops just re
turned from South Africa, and proceeded a
distance of seven miles through brilliantly
decorated streets bordered with almost con
tinuous lines of stands filled to their utmost
capacity. The entire route was filled with
demonstrative crowds, and the decorations,
arches, Venetian masts and columns along
the line of march were very effective.
Opposite the town hall the procession
passed beneath the queen's arch, canopied
with the royal colors and sheltering a golden
statue of Queen Victoria. Twelve thousand
troops were in line. There are 80,000 visitors
in Melbourne. The drive terminated at Gov
FIRE LOSS OF $15,000
Large General Store and Other |
BiuldiiiK* Burned at Mora.
Special to The Journal.
Mora, Minn., May ■:.—The most destructive
fire in the history of the village took place
yesterday morning, the loss amounting to
about $15,000. The fire started about 3 o'clock
in the confectionery store of H. Selhauer.
reducing it to ashes, the stock being saved.
The adjoining building on the west, used for
a billiard hall, owned- by W. A. GUPs, also
met the same fate. Flames soon attacked D.
R. Eaton's large general stone on the east
and it too was completely destroyed. Much
of the stock was saved, however, - although
more or less damaged. The confectionery store
of A. J. Conger to the east of Eaton's store
soon caught fire and was destroyed, most if
the stock being saved.
The large store of the Mora Mercantile
company •.•aught fire several times and
was saved with difficulty. The loss on the
Eaton store is estimated at $10,000, with $T,WO
insurance. The Selhauer loss figures up to
about $3.. with $2,200 insurance. Mr.
Gillis looses about J3OO, with no insurance.
A. J. Conger carried $600 on his confection
ery stor* and stock, his loss being estimated
at $1,200. The Danfcrth sale stable sustained
some damage, which is covered by insurance.
Conger and Selhauer will rebuild at once,
but Mr. Eaton is undecided.

Official Taster Has a Busy Day
Special to The Journal. r ' -i;
Omaha, Neb., May 6.—A. Wehrner, recognised as the official taster of the de
partment of the Missouri, will be obliged to partake to-day of more than 2,000 differ
ent articles of food. The taster is ordinarily chief clerk in the commissary depart
ment, but his value to the service lies chiefly in the sensitiveness of his palate. He
has cultivated the faculty for many years and was. awarded a gold medal by the
Trans-Mississippi exposition for proficiency.
' Twenty-three bids have been opened by Colonel D. B. Wilson, of the commissary
department, for more than a hundred articles, ranging from 40,000 .pounds of bacon to
720 dozen hardwood clothes pins. The proposals are mainly for foodstuffs, however,
and twenty-three samples of each have been submitted for the scrutiny, of Chief
Clerk Wehrner. l^.
The official taster will begin on mess pork and wind up on vanilla extract. He
will test the dietetic value of New Orleans molasses, vinegar, table.salt and condensed
milk, alternating with navy beans, pepper sauce and gelatin. Only products which
shows excellence as to quality and freshness will be placed on the eligible list.
The supplies are intended for the two military posts in Nebraska, one in Kansas
and one in Missouri. Bidders are present from various parts of the west, hut as the
findings must be audited by the Washington authorities the awards will not be made
for several days. • •
Doweites Resorting to White Cap Methods
Maw York Sun Siteclal Service
Binghamton, N. V., May 6.—The followers of Alexander Dowie have resorted to
white cap methods in Marlyand, Otsego county, and loss of life may result at any mo
ment from a clash between armed adherents of two sects. When several months ago
the Dowieites formed a sect under the direction of L. A. Dibble, they were per
mitted to use the Christian church as a meeting place. Later some of the Christian
members objected, and the followers of Dowle were told they would have to go else
where. Henry Rider and John A. Cook of Otsego were identified with the move
ment refusing them the church, and Mr. Cook received a whitecap letter a few days
ago stating that unless the Dowieites were allowed to use the church, the building
would be burned and also the building of Mr. Rider. Members of the Christian de
nomination at once became greatly incensed, declaring a Dowieite should never set
foot inside the church. They organized a committee to guard the premises with guns
and threatened summary vengeance on any of the new sect found prowling about.
The Dowieites also armed for what they termed self-protection, and a clash between
the warring factions, terminating in bloodshed if not loss of life, is predicted.
Lived With Husband But 3 Hours
Maw York Sun Special Service. •'VV._y : .
New York, May 6.—lnez Kohetz Caribone, a pretty girl of Paterson, N. J., is the
defendant in a suit for absolute divorce begun by her husband, Omar Caribone, with
whom she lived only three hours. The guests had not finished the wedding feast
when the bride flitted away, leaving a note saying -that she had gone never to return.
'.'I married you," she wrote, "not because I loved you, but because I wanted to be
revenged on your former sweetheart, who insulted me, who said I would never get
married and who taunted me by saying no man would ever marry me. ■ You were
going to marry her at the time, and you can marry her now if you like, but I wanted
to let her know that I could take any fellow from her if I wanted to. Go and marry
Julia Mossi now, for she is the girl who insulted me at a dance when you were her
escort and who said that no man would marry me."
Dog's Devotion Proves His Death
Special to The Journal.
Fort Dodge, lowa, May 6.—A case of a dog committing suicide occurred in Doug
las township, not far from Fonda, not long ago. The dog was the property of Chris
Drouth and was an English pointer of a very affectionate disposition. A few days
ago the dog's master went away and left him in a yard surrounded by a high fence.
The.animal desired to follow his master and made several attempts to leap the fence,
but without success. He persisted in his hopeless attempts until he finally fell dead
of exhaustion and his lifeless body was found by his master on his return, some
hours later. £.- *;£*;>• '-;■•'* ". •■♦".'■
Missed a Train, but Saved His Life
Special to The Journal.
- lowa Falls,. lowa, May: 6.— J. P. Baum of Fort Dodge is thankful that a train
pulled out of a station and left him, as this incident saved his life. He was a
passenger on the freight train that was wrecked here Friday evening, and when the
train stopped at Alden he alighted frem the caboose while the men did some switch
ing. It pulled out; however, leaving Mr. Baum at the station. Finding he could reach
this city by the C., I. & 33. he came down on the 3:40 passenger and a few moments
later viewed the wreck otf the caboose that had been smashed by a rear-end collision.
Says the Tongue Is Not Necessary for Speech
New York. May &.—Lecturer William H. Crampton has demonstrated the falsity
of the belief that the tongue is necessary for speech. Mr. Crampton's tongue was re
moved in the Seney hospital, Brooklyn, on April 12 last, but yesterday at his home he
talked about the operation and other happenings in his eventful life. His articulation
was not wholly perfect, but he spoke clearly and without much difficulty. Now and
then he would slur a syllable in connecting words, but his enunciation for the most
part was good. He has a deep, sonorous voice, and this has practically been unaffected
by the operation he passed through.

nothing can as yet be determined about the final result. Eisen believes that he be

Dcs Moines, lowa, May 6.—The mission
of Major E. H. Conger to Washington,
he has : given it out, is to examine the
official correspondence that has passed be
tween the state department and the
Chinese..government since, he left Peking.
In response to an inquiry whether.'his at
titude; toward the gubernatorial nomina
tion would hinder his plans for return
ing' to China, he said it would not, and
that he expected to go back to Peking
at the expiration of sixty days, the period
for which he obtained leave of absence. :
lowa .- is not accustomed'to t deal with
candidates that are receptive, riot active,
and I the campaign opened . by'^Conger's
final statement. is unique. When the
name of Conger. was first proposed for
the governorship, it was argued he alone
could quiet divisive strife and bring har
mony and peace to dwell In .the party
household. It is • certain there are no
signs of peace as yet. The prospects are
that the addition of Conger's name to
the list of candidates will make the con
test more bitter than ever.
Identified With the Machine.
While personally Major Conger cannot
be said to be identified with either faction
in lowa republican politics, he has been
forced to take the stand he has by the
faction opposed to Cummins.-commonly
called the machine element. Cummins has
developed great strength, and his sup
porters are confident of his nomination.
None of the machine candidates appear
able to overcome him. ' In Conger alone,
the machine leaders see one who Is pop
ular enough to" defeat Cummins. Hence,
by word and letter, they have been urg
ing him, if he -could, not be an active
candidate, at least to allow his name
to be used. He has fallen in with their
plans to the extent of saying he is will
ing to accept the nomination. Just what
strength he will have is problematical.
The machine leaders are taking up Con
ger's" cause and promoting it wherever
there is a prospect of hurting Cummins.
• The fight for the present will be mainly
in this congressional district, the seventh.
Two counties of the district, Polk and
Story, have already instructed their dele
gations for Cummins. In the other four,
there will be a struggle btween Con
ger on the one side backed by the machine
leaders, and Cummins. The Cummins
supporters are confident of carying Madi
son county. In Dallas, Marion and War
ren counties, they expect to encounter
formidable opposition. In the primaries
in Polk county, the machine leaders did
not hesitate to use plenty of money in
behalf of Sidney A. Foster, and it is to
be expected they will not be penurious in
the three doubtful counties of the dis
trict. .^."".;;v '^^i';.^.-';;':^;-.;;:.;

. George D. Perkins having withdrawn,
Sidney A. Foster of this city is expected
to follow him soon. Probably Mr. Foster
will remain long enough to help Conger in
the Warren county campaign. Unless
the outlook for him is then much better
than it is now, the general opinion is he
The grave question with the machine
leaders is what to do with Harriman and
Trewin. Both have been in the cam
paign for weeks and have worked hard
to build up support.. . Harriman •_ is
chagrined at the evident purpose to nomi
nate Conger, and :Trewin is reported as
saying he will throw his strength to Cum
mins if Conger persists in getting into the
race. ; Harriman says he will not with
draw. Unless pacified, both he and Tre
win are in a mood to give the anti-Cum
mins forces serious trouble.
Three Counties for Cnnimlna.". •
Three counties have instructed their
delegates for Cummins, Boone, Polk and
Story. They have a total of 107 dele
gates in the state convention. "I am not
a candidate because J. W. Blythe or X. M.
Hubbard wants me to be,'" declared Mr.
Cummins. "When they sent to me
through a mutual friend the challenge
that I must either extinguish, myself.po
litically, of my own accord, or be mur
dered at their hands, I chose the field of
battle. When I die politically, it will be
with my face to the front and I at least
will not leave behind me tie memory of
having committed political suicide."
