says: "Humacao was totally destroyed

Very great injury has been done also

No definite returns have yet been re

VICTIMS Of :.: u IV iL.
Crowd Arrived at Wianjjel. One From
Ohio, In Had Mupe. I'ringluK
Wkaxgei,, Alaska, Aug. 6, via Seat
tle, Aug. 11. The Stickeeu river
steamer Strathcona arrived here with
ISO survivors of the Edmonton trail.
They were all western men except nine,
two being C. Jefferson of Asbury Park,
N. J., and M. Veley, Ohio.
All the men came in with the pack
train sent out from Telegraph creek
and Laketon by the various trading
companies last spring.
The unfortunates told heartrending
stories of hardships endured and com
rades lost and abandoned, and strongly
denounced the trading and transporta
tion companies as well as the Canadian
officials and newspapers that so pro
fusely advertised this route as a feas
ible one to the Klondike gold fields, To
outward appearances, these men cer
tainly gavo evidence of the awful suf
fering undergone since leaving Edmon
ton about 18 months ago. Most of
them were sickly-looking, with un
kempt beards and greasy clothes pic
tures of physical and financial wrecks.
Several had grown gray and bore
marks of scurvy.
A few had just enough mouey to
reach Seattle or Victoria, but the most
were without funds. The citizens of
Wrangel have applied to the United
States government at Washington, but
up to this date no aid has been received.
There are about 25 destitute miners
It is estimated that there are 30 or 40
scurfers at Telegraph creek awaiting the
next trip of the boat. The sick that
had to bo carried on stretchers, had not,
yet reached Glenora when the steamer
Several starvation cases and persons
frozen to death are reported.
All along the route from Fort Simp
sou, on the, McKenzie river, to Fort
Laird, men with frozen limbs were as
sisted, while some too weak to help
themselves were uecessarilyleft behind
by those more fortunate and able to
struggle along. Scurvy raged in all the
camps more or less, but there are few
deaths from this disease reported. A
number of Canadians, who attempted
to cross Cutland trail from Simpson to
the Francis last fall, have never been
heard from, and it is likely that they
perished from cold. -Provisions wore

Tomorrow He I to He a Witness Mimt
Giir Hi" Alleged I'ronf That Drejrfu
Ih Cullty The Accused May Cross
P.EXNKS, Aug. 11. Maitre Demange,
the principal counsel of Captain Drey
fus, in an interview with a representa
tive after the .-cssion of the courtmartial,
expressed himself as very well con
tented with the way in which matters
are proceeding, and, judging from his
maimer, one may say that the defend
ers of the accused have not yet met any
thing very surprising or alarming in
the secret dossier.
' Naturally M. Demange declined to
give any iiarticulars respecting the cou
teuts of the dossier, but ho declared
that he and his colleague, M. Labori,
were satisfied of the conscientious de
sire of the members of the court to
thresh the whole matter out and to have
full light turned upon tho accusations
against their client.
This will take some tune, aud the end
of the month will be reached before
judgment can be given. Meanwhile
the strum was telling on Dreyfus, who
was showing physical distress.
The members of the Dreyfus court
martial took the testimony of MM.
Chamoiu and Paleologue. The court
today probably will conclude the ex-'
animation of the secret dossier.
Colonel Jouaust, president of the
courtmartial, on leaving the court said
a public session would take place to
morrow. Captain Dreyfus was allowed to walk
to and fropi the Lyeee without his usual
escort of four or six gendarmes. Only
a oaptaiu of gendarmes was with him
aud this officer walked a few steps be
hind the prisoner.
Tomorrow's public session will be a
veritable field day, probably the most
important and exciting day of the whole
trial, as General Mercier and M. Casi-mir-Perier
have, been cited to give their
A dramatic scene is anticipated by
the anti-Dreyf usites, who rely upon him
to throw a bombshell and confound the
accused once for all. His words "1 have
complete proofs of the guilt of Drey
fus," are remembered and both sides
are waiting for him to prove his state
ment. The Dreyf usites believe that his testi
mony will bo torn to pieces by MM.
Labori ana Demange, and that he will
leave the court utterly discredited.
Captain Droyfus will have the right
to question him and it is expected that
the latter's cross-examination of Mer
cier will prove tho climax of the whole
Former President Casimir-Perior will
follow, if possible, tho same day, but it
is doubtful whether his examination
will bu concluded before tho court ad
journs until Moudav.

MILES CONSULTED WITH ROOT.
Believe the Former Hrought Up Alger's
Washington-, Aug. 11. Major Gen
eral Miles had a conference of more
than half an hour with the secretary of
war. Secretary Root said the confer
ence was devoted to military matters.
When it was suggested that there were
rumors that he was consulting General
Miles with reference to a change of
commanders in the Philippines he said
he had nothing to say on that subject.
It is known, however, that General
Miles brought up the recent order of
Secretary Alger upon tho inspector gen

places the bureau under the direction
of tho secretary of war aud omits the
commanding general of tho army is not
satisfactory, it is said, to General Miles.

Hawkins, ho said, would want to be
alone with her loved one.
Mrs. Hawkins broke down with grief,
but did not linger long at the casket.
The features of the bravo colonel were

robust-looting form as ho appeared
when he went out with his troops
nearly 10 months ago. Chaplain Hun

He took supper with the family and told

"Colonel Dick will be a candidate
for United States Senator to succeed
Foraker, says the Columbus Dis
patch. Any ono with any know
ledge of existing conditions in Ohio,
and who is a student of Ohio politics
as being written to-day, knows that
Colonel Dick is systematically and
actively building up an organization
in Ohio to control the Legislature
which elects a United States Senator,
and to contest with Foraker for that
"When jColouel Dick was chosen
chairman of the Republican State
Executive committee this year, in
spite of the protests of both the
Dougherty and Foraker-Bushnell
factions, it was for the purpose of
affording him an opportunity to
build up a strong machine with
which to defeat Foraker for re-election
to the United States Senate.

sizes this fact. If Judge Xash is
elected governor all tin patronage of
that oflicc will he at the disposal of
President McKinloy, Senator Hauua
and Colonel Dick to insure the defeat
of Foraker and the election of Dick,

Dr. Bennett, at present pastor of the
First church; came here from Ft.
Wayne, aud previous to that had oc
cupied pulpits of the First Metho

Dubuque, Iowa. He is known over
all of the central section as a lec

as a jurist before he entered the mis

at Columbus, O., he was offered the
pastorate of the First Church, in

One of the principal reasons for his

the refusal of
