went along alright, until they reached
Anoka, when three strangers entered
the car, which then started up.
"I asked one of the men for a chew
of tobacco," Costrain said, "and as the
tall man handed me a plug he asked
me where we came from. I told him,
and then the three went into the op

BIG SALVAGE AWARD.
A Famous Admiralty Case Decided
SEATTLE, Nov. 3.— Judge H. C.
fianford has handed down his decision
in the famous salvage case of the Ca
r.adian-Australia steamship line, owner
of the Miowera, and the Pacific Im
provement line, owner of the steamer
Minola, versus the steamship Strath
nevis, in which he decreed to the for
mer company $26,200, and the latter
$20,500 for their efforts in saving the
Strathnevis, which foundered in the
Pacific ocean several hundred miles off
Cape Flattery, in the terrific storm that
prevailed in December, 1895.
The opinion is an exhaustive one and
fully covers the case, giving a graphic
description of the efforts of the two
steamers to tow the Strathnevis to a
rlaee of safety. The court compli
mented the Minola on her efforts and
in decreeing the $20,500 remem

amounts varying from $1,800 to
Captain Tittsbury, to $50 to the cabin
boy. The owners of the vessel get
In the case of the Miowera the court I
gave to the owners $18,000, and to every
member %3f the crew, from captain I
down, amounts ranging from $500 to $50. !
It will be remembered that the Mio- i
wera, while towing her prize to De- j
structlon island, parted the hawser,
and on the following morning could j
not get sight of the stranded steamer. '•
Instead of steaming to Tatoosh !
island and telegraphing the news that !
he had towed the Strathnevis to the |
spot where the hawser parted, Capt. i
Scott continued on the way to China. !
For this the court criticised the mas- j
ter, and stated the salvage would have
been double the size had he taken !
these precautions. In arriving at his '
decision Judge Hanford cites a number I
of authorities touching on similar cases.
The decision is considered a fair one in
this city, and gives satisfaction to all '■

"How many persons here wore rubbers tonight? Hands up! Not half of you, Now, that's

"It is astonishing how people neglect their feet. I saw a woman on the corner tonight in a
sealskin sack and muffled at the neck. She wore a pair of kid shoes with wafer soles, and no
rubbers. She is sure to have a cold tomorrow. The feet are the most abused part of the whole

CAPTURED A '•MERMAN.''
Monster, Half Human Half Fish,
Killed in the Pacific.
SEATTLE, Wash.. Nov. 3.— A party
of Englishmen, who have been porpoise
fishing in the Pacific, discovered and
killed a monster that resembles a mer
man. The party was off the Island of
Watmoff in their hunting boat and
Lord Devonshire, one of the fishers,
had just shot a porpoise, when some
one called out, "Look there!" pointing
to a frightful* looking monster about a
cable's length away. Hastily raising
his weapon, the lord fired at it and hit
the creature between the eyes. The
shot, though it did not kill it, so stun
ned it that it lay perfectly -still on the
surface of the sea.
"As our boat hauled alongside," said
Maj. W. E. Thorncliffe, of the British
army, who was in the boat, "we saw
the most hideous and uncanny looking
monster probably that human eyes ever
looked upon. Although at a distance
it might perhaps be mistaken for a por
poise, as we came near we saw that it
could truly be described by no other
name than that of 'merman.'
"As we reached over the side of the
boat to haul the creature in it regained
some of its vitality. It caught the boat
by th ! gunwale amidships, and had it
not been for the fact that when the
arms came up out of the sea we natur
ally shrank to the other side of the
boat it would, without doubt, have cap
sized us. One of the men picked up an

you to come with me and I will show

Then the major led the way to a
storeroom, where, in the middle of the
floor, was a large, coffin-shaped box.
It was ten feet long three feet wide anc"
three feet deep. Taking a screwdriver,
the major unfastened the top. All that
could be seen was some ice, covered
with a white woolen blanket. Taking
the blanket by the end he quickly re
moved it, and as he did so the appar
ently naked body of a large man was
The major then removed the cloth
which covered the lower part of the
body. This is exactly the same as that
of an ordinary porpoise. The monster
is one of the most remarkable freaks
nature ever put together. The strangi
nionstrosity measured ten feet from
its nose to the end of its fluke-shaped
tail, and the girth of its human shaped
body was just six feet.
It would weigh, it was estimated
close to 500 pounds. From about the
breast bone to a point about where
the. base of the stomach would be, were
it human, it looked exactly like a man
Its arms, quite human in shape and
form, are very long, and covered com
pletely with long, coarse, dark reddish
hair, as is the whole body.
It had, or did have at one time, four
fingers and a thumb on each hand, al
most human in shape, except that In
place of finger nails there were long,
slender claws. But in days probably
"ong since gone by it had evidently
fought some monster that had got the
best of it, for the forefinger of the
right hand, the little finger of the left
and the left thumb are missing en
Immediately under the right breast
is a broad, ugly looking scar, whien
looked as if some time in the past ii
had been inflicted by a swordfish. On
the sides and body of the monster arc
numerous other evidences that its life
in the ocean had been far from a
placid one. There is hardly a space the
size of one's hand that does not show
evidence of having at some time or
ether received wounds.
CHASED BY A MOUXTAIX LIOX.
Bicyclist Sehock's Thrilling Hide in
the Alleghany Mountains.
NEW YORK, Nov. 3.— Albert Schock,
the bicyclist, got into town the
other day from Uniontown.Pa., having
come all the distance on his wheel.
He came over the Alleghany mount
ains, but declares he will never travel
that route again. He said:
"Most people think the western
mountains are pretty high, but I'll give
my word the Alleghanies take the cake
for height. I went over four ranges of
them, and I don't want to undertake
the job again."
"Did you have any trouble?"
"Trouble?" repeated Schock. "Well,
I don't exactly understand what you
mean by trouble. But if it's excite
ment you refer to, well, I should say
I had. Now, I'm a pretty good hill
climber, and when it comes to coast
ing I fancy that very few of the cham
pions can give me much of a start. It's
pretty good exercise to climb hills,
and I'm one of the few men who
don't know how to coast up an Incline.
I give fair warning to all cyclists to
steer clear of the Alleghanies. 1
came mighty near turning gray in one
"How was that?"
"I will tell you hew it was, but this
is to be a dead secret," responded the
German-American rider. "I am not
posing as a wild Westerner, and I will
admit that blue hardware is quite dis
tasteful to me, providing the other fel
low is fixed with it. I always carry a
gun to use on troublesome dogs. Many
cyclists are also equipped with firearms.
To make a long story short, I was just
climbing to the top of a hill in the Al
leghanies. It was about six miles long.
The effort rather fatigued me, but then
1 thought I would have a cinch coast
ing down the other side. It was so
steep that I decided to rig up a brake.
"After thinking a bit I pulled up a
sapling and tied it on the rear axle of
my wheel. This proved to be quite a
handicap, and answered the purpose
splendidly. I was going along nicely
and I decided to light a cigar. I stop
ped a moment for that purpose. All
of a sudden I heard a peculiar growl.
Thinking it was a stray dog I hurned
around and saw two eyes that were as
bright as diamonds shining out of the
darkness. I was not alarmed at first,
but as the creature came nearer some
thing told me that it was not a domes
tic animal. I said to myself that I
was up against a wild beast. There
was only one thing to be done. I had
to cut loose the ballast. I drew my
pocket-knife and started to cut the
cord which held the sapling. In doing
so I punctured the rear fire. The ani
mal, which I am thoroughly convinced
was a mountain lion, came nearer and
nearer at every jump, so I finally rode
down the mountain on my front wheel
and escaped. I wouldn't be sure about
the time, but I'd be willing to bet that
I rode two miles and a half down grade
in less than forty-five seconds." . .

HOT CHASE AFTER A BEAR.
Hriiin Trees a \ckto. lint Is \ot Al-
lowed to Devour Him.
PITTSBURGH, Pa., Nov. 3.— A big
f blaek bear, one of the pets of the new
zoological garden at Riverview park,
Alleghany, escaped from its keepers,
Saturday afternoon and ran through a
populous district, creating excitement
that is rarely witnessed on a city
street. Women and children seeing the
dangerous animal approach sought
shelter in their homes and everybody
gave the animal a wide berth. One
man was badly bitten, however, and
a colored man was almost scared
white by the bear, which chased him
to a tree and kept him there until the
park attaches arrived and captured it.
The animal, with others, was being
transferred to winter quarters. He
succeeded from escaping from his
keepers and started out to see the
town. W_en the chase became too
close the bear would reel about, stand
up on his hind legs and paw the air.
This threatening attitude was not en
couraging for even the bravest of his
followers, and none of them dared ap
proach very near the brute. This flight,
interrupted every hundred yards by
similar stops, continued until Woods
Run was reached. When the bear
made his appearance on Woods Run
avenue the excitement was intense.
Women picked up their children and
rushed with them to their homes, and
every person tried to get to some place
of shelter where he could watch the
George Watson, a young colored
man, did not think it necessary to
run from the bear, and before he could
think what to do the ahimal had head
ed his way. The big brute's teeth were
snapping and looked hungry to get a
bite of that particular young man.
Watson finally became scared when he
saw the earnest look on Mr. Bruin's
face, so he turned and as fast as his
trembling limbs could carry him ran
up the street. .The animal kept in
close pursuit and Watson, fearing es
cape was impossible, ran to a tree.
He made several fruitless efforts to
climb to a protecting limb, and he suc
ceeded about the time the bear reach
ed the place. The animal commenced
to climb to where the man was hang
ing. It was half way up the tree trunk
when William Stubbs, superintendent
of the park, and several assistants
arrived. They then beat the animal
off. The bear continued his flight,
which terminated in a fence corner.
While endeavoring to muzzle the brute
Superintendent Stubbs was badly bit
ten in the calf of the leg. The beai
was hustled back to Sleepy Hollow
and extra care will be paid to him in

SAN FRANCISCO, Cal.. Nov. ?,.—
Gcorce Wirtz, of this city, has received
a letter from Alaska which says that
Carlton F. Wells, who left Oregon al
most two years ago for the Arctic gold
fields — where it is said he succeeded in
accumulating $20,000— was buried alive
after his apparent death from heart
disease, in Juneau, last May.
Just prior to Wells' apparent death
he forwarded the greater part of his
little fortune to his wife, who is now
living in Trenton, N. J. A little more
than a month ago the undertaker who
buried Wells received a letter from his
widow, asking that his body be ex
humed and shipped East for permanent
When the coffin was opened the body
was found in a strangely cramped po
sition, the face turned toward the side.
A close examination showed beyond
any doubt that Wells had awakened
from a death-like trance after burial
The skeleton of the right hand clutched
a gutta percha plate, bearing three
false teeth, which, in his agony, Wells
is believed to have torn from the roof
of his mouth.
Near the place where his right Jaw
rested in the coffin was also found a
plain gold ring, which Wells had worn
on the fourth finger of his right hand.
In view of this terrible discovery the
undertaker and the doctor who had at
tended Wells decided not to send the
body East unless forced to do so by a
