Story From Men Who Completed
Enumeration in Alaska Reads
Like a Novel.
FIGHTING AGAINST COLD
OF SEVENTY BELOW
Battle With Blizzards, " Deep
Snow and Icy Wastes Made
Up Daily Routine.
WASHINGTON, July 26. Tempera
ture from 30 t'o 70 degrees below zero;
snow from three to twenty feet deep;
wind blowing a bliv-zard most of the
time; no human habitation in sight;
no covering nt night except a tent, and
no "grub" that was not' many times
frozen. These arc somo of tho condi
tions under which the recent census was
taken in the interior of Alaska. The
report of Chief Special Agent McKon
zie, covering the work in tho fourth or
inland district of tho territory, has
just been received by Director Durand,
and while tho story is simply told, it
is a wonderfully thrilling narrative of
adventure, showing that when Uncle
Sam starts out t'o round un his children
ho spares no expense to locate them and
satisfies himself as to their status.
Mr. jrcTCcnzies narrativo, made pub
lic tonight, comes in advance of his
figures, so that it is impossible t'o give
the population of flic country covered
by him and his twenty assistants. 3Tor
reasons of its own tho census bureau
determined to number the Alaskans" dur
ing midwinter. Mr, MoKenzic made
his headquarters at the raining town of
Fairbanks. His first special agent was
appointed ou the t'enth day of last No
vember and the work was completed by
the eleventh of April, when McKen
zie left for "the states." His experi
ence in getting out of the country was
bv no means as thrilling as somo of his
experiences while engaged in the work,
but it was stirring enough to arouse in
terest in a warm opell. Of it he says:
Battlo With Cold.
"I came out on tho mail coach ar
riving at Valdcz on the twontieth aft'er
a varied experience consisting of being
dclaj'ed two days by a blizzard, cross
ing rushing streams oven when the
horses had to swim and tho sleds floai
and traveliug day and night with the
thermometer often as low as 40 below
The bureau's principal reason for a
winter census is found in the fact that
getting about the country is much easier
at that time than at .ny other season.
There arc no bridges in tho country
and as crossing streams when not frozen
over is a serious problem, Mr. Mclvcn
zie says that to have made the enumera
tion in the summer would havo required
tho services of four times as many as
sistants while tho cost would have been
six times as great. ITc also expressed
doubt as to whether tho result would
have been as satisfactory. As it is, he
is of the opinion that" it is "accurate
Much hardship was necessarily in
volved in the work. Only men inured
to the rigors of the Arctic climate were
employed, and whilo they snffcrcd se
verely, none of them lost their lives.
Summing up tho conditions, Mr. Mc
Had Loyal Workers.
"The work was performed during tho
severest winter known in this part of
Alaska by tho oldest settlers and tho
men kept constantly and conscientiously
at it until completed. There did not
appear to be a man who did not have a
pride in the work, an anxiety to create
a record for traveling time, a desire
to enumerato all the peoplo in his dis
trict and to have to his credit less
loss of time becauso of extreme weath
er than any of the other agents. That
tho service lost none of the men from
freezing to death and that every man
returned safe is a matter of congratu
lation and good fortune. There were
more deaths from the weather in this
section during the past winter than in
ail of the other vears iu total cases,
too, in which thoso who met such
deaths did not begiu to go through tho
sacrifice and privation that these agents
of the service did. All of the men cov
ered hundreds of miles over the ice and
snow in weather ranging from 30 to 70
degrees below zero, tho average being
about 40 below."
Tho experience of the agent in Chnnd
lar district is a fair example. Speaking
of liim t'he chief agent sa.vs, " ho was
not a scholar, but a man who had lived
there for vears and well fitted to under
go tho privations necessary," That his
good qualities wore put to the severest
test the report shows.
Long, Bitter Cold, 1
"Severe weather was oncountcre0
throughout all of k his work," says Mc
Kcnzic, "and at no time after ho left
Fairbanks until he returned did the
thermometer get above 30 degroes be
low zero. His long .-journey away from 1
the base of supplies made it impossible
for him to carry sufficient grub and dog
food, and he was obliged to live off
the country, killing moose, mpuntain
sheep and other fresh meat. During
the work he lost two of his dogs from
freezing to death. Tie himself froze
portions of his face several times, and'
at one time dropped into six feet of
open water, nearly losing his life. In
crossing the Arctic raugo and return

NEW YORK, July 26. The quarter
ly statoment of tho United States Stool
corporation for tho three months ending
Juno 30 last, issued today, shows total
earnings of $10,170,060, an amount far
in excess of unofficial estimates and
greater than earnings of the first quar

greater than the first quarter.
Both gross and not earnings aro vastl'
largor than those of the corresponding

and $23,223,395 respectively. At
this period last year the corporation was
at war with many independent concerns
and all products were being cut dras
ticalry. In contrast to the earnings,
Wall st'roet expressed disappointment at
the exhibit of unfilled ordors ns set
forth in today's report. They are only
1,257,754 tons, a falling off of 1,3-1-1,575
tons in comparison with tho previous
quarter. In this connection it was un
officially stated that tho report shows
only tho actual or nou-cancellato busi
ness. Pursuant to the corporation's policy
of publicity tho directors today ordered
that the officers hereafter ma'ko public

FAVOR COUNTY OPTION !
FOR LIQUOR REGULATION
Close Fight in Committee, but
All Smooth for Convention
"LINCOLN, Neb., July 2G. Tho stato
convention of tho Republican party of
Nobraska today adopted a platform
strongly indorsing tho administration of
President Taft, expressing unaltorablo
opposition to tho "system known ns Can
nonlsm," and hearty sympathy with the
"insurgent" movement in and out of con
gress. The platform includes a declara
tion for county option as tho method of
regulating the liquor traffic and for an
amendment to the stato constitution pro
viding for direct legislation.
Those results were not adopted with
out strong opposition, both in tho rcsolu- 1
tions committee and upon the floor of the
convention, but while thero wero no vot03
to sparo in the committee for county op
tion and tho other matters came before
tho main body of delegates as minority
reports, tho vote In their favor in the
convention was overwhelming.
As a general proposition, it had been
understood, the Indorsing of county option
and of "Insurgency" wero supported by
the samo people.

In consequence when, at the opening of
tho convention at noon United States
Senator Norris Brown, a "stand-patter,"

-when an ordinance will be acted on that has been drawn so as to leave no doubt of its legality. -A

IN PRESENT CONVENTION
Announcement of Vote Re
ceived With Wild Cheers
by the Delegates.
CRiVND ISLAND, Neb., July 2C Ne
braska Democrats tonight wrested the
leadership of their state organization
from William J. Bryan on the Issue o?
county option. By decisive votes they
registered their unbelief In his present
policies, after listening to an Impassioned
appeal from Mr. Bryan, who dcelarod the
liquor interests were organized to secure
political control of the state. The mi
nority plank submitted by Mr. Bryan
was brief and his opponents declared was.
an effort to recede from his former atti
tude. The workers on tho county option
act stood firmly against It,
Arraignment of the present Republican
administration is the strong feature of
the platform as it portalns to national
issues. It strongly indorses tho last na
tional Democratic platform and the pres
ent state administration, and continues:
Platform in Brief.
"Wo congratulate the party upon
widespread revival of Democratic senti
ment, which gives promise of Democratic
"We congratulate the country that
Democratic opposition has thus far suc
ceeded In defeating the iniquitous ship
"We recognizo in the many excessive
rates on such favored products as steel,
woolen goods, rubber, lumber, and others
the return the Republican politicians are
making to the plundering trusts for cam
paign contributions two years ago.
"We condemn tho president for sur
rendering to Aid rich and Cannon the con
trol of tariff revision and for using his
patronage to force pnwilling congress
men of the Republican party to accept
their dictation. Wc deplore the presi
dent's folly and weakness in surroundlr
himself with a cabinet of trust advisers.
We favor the conservation of the national
resources of the country and condemn
tho policy under which favored capital
ists and political syndicates secure con
trol of water power, coal mines and other
sources of the nation's wealth unre
strained and apparently favored by the
present national administration.
Eoast for Taft.
"Wo condemn tho president for re
gaining in his cabinet the close friend
and former attorney for the powerful and
unscrupulous syndicate caught In tho
very act of plunder.
"We Join the Democrats everywhere in
pledging tho party to the cause of tariff
reform, economy und simplicity in gov
ernment, trust prosecution and tho rati
fication of the Income tax amendment-"
The attitude of many o'f Mr, Bryan's
former lieutenants toward him was evi
denced in speeches of several who ad
dressed tho convention after him. His
reference to "assassins" in the party was
frequently referred to, and as ach speak
er denounced his present position the
cheers of the delegates showed that the
appeal of Mr. Bryan had been Incf
foctual. Tho vote by which his county
option plank was rejected was not taken
until after midnight. It was decisively
against tho acceptance of tho measure.
Mr. Bryan made no comment nftcr the
vote, and In answer to questions referred
to his speech. In which ho proclaimed hi?
fealty to the Democratic party and Its
Bryan Makes Protost.
Mr. Bryan, seated as a momber of the
Lancaster county delegation, was upon
his feet at once with a protest and prof
fered an amendment, that would modify
that Intent of original motion. A dozen
delegates made us many motions and
heated speeches on the subject, the Bryan
adherents denouncing the Hitchcock mo
tion as "gag rule" and their opponents
declaring that "individual rule" must not
prevail in the convention. Chairman
Smythe ordered a roll call on tho amend
ment, and the gathering was silent as tho
vote of the counties was' called that would
determine the Bryan strength. When
two-thirds had been called foes of Mr.
Bryan realized he was defeated and a
wave of cheers that drowned the roll call
began. As Chairman Smythe read the
result. 465 against the amondmcnt to 301
In favor of it, the delegates sounded a
fresh volume of cheers that seemed to
indicate tholr rcllof from the uncertainty
that had existed as to the strength which
Mr. Bryan would develop in the conven
tion. The original motion of Mr. Hitch
cock then was adopted.
Little Talk, Much Work.
Tho convention came to order in a tent
packed with perspiring delegates and sur
rounded by throngs of spectators eager
to hear the oratorical battle that had
boon predicted. Instead of calling for
the oratory tho delegates began to speed
up tho action of the convention to a
gait that promised to transfer the antici
pated long drawn out contest to two
brief nnd busy sessions. The temporary
organization was made permanent and
Chairman Smythe after a brief speech
selected a committee on resolutions. Mr.
Bryan was among the first two of tho
committee of seven named. Congressman
Hitchcock made his motion to restrict
discussion. The opponents of Mr. Bryan
asserted that If Individual introduction
of platform planks had been permitted
with a speech or speeches on each one
It would have materially delayed the
progress of the body. While they as
serted their willingness that he should
speak on the minority report which It
was expected lo introduce, the action
practically prohibited any other speech
from him In the convention.
Fight for Governorship.
While the committee on resolutions was
drafting its report, Governor Shallen
berger and Mayor Dahlman of Omaha,
rivals for nomination for governor, ad
dressed tho convention nd hurled verbal
shafts at each other The Omaha mayor
said he welcomed a fight In the conven
tion as a trip of several hundred miles
to a harmonious gathering was not. worn
the expenditure of car fare.
Governor Shallenbergor also asserted
his eagerness for a lively battle and an
nounced his willingness to stand for a
selection on the endorsement of the day
light closing law. the operation of which
had been attacked by Mayor Dahlman
and his followers. The governor also
promised the delegates that If re-elected
together with a Democratic legislature
he would give them opportunity, through
legislative acllon. to settle the saloon
question definitely. The convention took
a recess until S o'clock to await the
report of tho committee on resolutlonn.
Dissension among the members of the
resolutions committee delayed the pre
sentation of tho divergent reports unlll

OLA.THE, Kan., July 26. Senator i
Albert B. Cummins in an address here !
this afternoon attneked tho United 1
States Steel corporation. i
This was the last speech of Senator
Cummins 's present Kansas tour. Ira- !
mediately after ho had finished, speak
ing ho left for his homo in Des Moines,

fill no more speaking dates between
now and August 2. Tho heat and tho
strenuous work o tho campaign in
Kansas have sapped tho senator's
strength and ho has gone home to rest
for a time.
Senator Cummins in his seech here
said in part:
"You will remember that in 1901 tho
Carnegio company of Pittsburg sold its
plant to the United States Steel cor
poration, organized that year. Tho
steel corporation paid the Carnegie
Steel company $500,000,000'for its plant ;
and business. Of this incomprehensible
sum, Andrew Carnegio received $350,000 , 1
in the bonds of tho corporation and his
associates in business received tho re-
mainder. "What was tho plant worth? ;
That is not a subject longer in dis- ' :
pute. t has been most minutely in- '
vestigated. Tho highest value any rea
sonable man would put on it in 1901 , ;
was $80,000,000, and the United States il
Steel corporation paid to Andrew Car- ?
negio's company $120,000,000 more than 1 "
at was worth, moro thau would be rc- ,j
quired to reproduce it with every mod- :
orn improvement known to the busi- ;J
n ess. - '
Eeason for Inflation. ! :
"Now, why did the United' States"
Steel corporation pay $420,000,000 , ):
more for this property than it was
worth? I will tell you. I oxanuned
the books of the Carnogio Steel com-
panyand there it was shown that over
a Honies of years the Carnegie company
had been making profits that would pay '
interest on $500,000,000 .and the United
States Steel corporation had enough con- ;
fidence in its own power, onough con
