Opinion or His Friends and
Kalispel, Mont., Xov. 10. There
have been no new developments in the
Egan search, notwithstanding that a
reward of $1,000 has attracted more
men into the district. Another party
left Columbia Falls yesterday morning
for Hungry Horse creek, and will be
out several days. It , Is now almost
impossible to get through the country
except on snow shoes, and parties who
have gone into the South Fork coun
try have been compelled to use them.
The return of two parties now out is
anxiously awaited. One went up to
the cabin on Pyramid Peak and an
other into the South Fork country- It
will be at least three days before they
can make their report.
How Kgan Went to Ills Death.
Dr. Houston spent part of the day
here, returning to Helton last night. He
has given up all hope of Egan being
alive. Houston said that the last
words of Egan were: "I am going off
here and loo!i around." As he made
the above remark Egan pointed east
and almost directly from the railroad.
Houston said regarding the time after
leaving the car: "We stood on the
track and examined the compass. Mr.
Egan remarked that Belton was al
most due north, and thinking that he
knew the locality we did not question
his judgment. Mr. Egan wore ex
tremely heavy pants and vest, my
oiled canvas hunting coat, roll felt
hat and rifle. He had at least twenty

St. Paul, Xov. 10. It is now nearly
a week since Benjamin F. Egan. su
perintendent of the Kalispcll division
of the Great Northern railway, and a
few friends went into the mountains
near Kalispcll to spend a few days in
hunting. The hunters took separate
courses, expecting to come together at
camp in the evening. Egan failed to
join the others, and after waiting a
reasonable time a search was made for
him. He was not found, and news of
his disappearance was then spread
among his friends at Kalispcll and St.
Very Thorough Search Is Futile.
The search was then commenced in
earnest. As many men as could be
spared from the road were sent into
the mountains to explore every gorge
and valley and canyon where it was
thought likely the missing hunter
could have strayed. An engine was
sent to patrol therailroad tracks among
the mountains where the hunting par
ty had camped, and the enginer was
instructed to blow the whistle at fre
quent intervals, so the lost man could
get his bearings if he was still alive.
The men who scoured the mountains
did everything jtossible to make their
presence known. They shouted, they
fired guns, they built tires on exposed
places, but so far everything has been

tain no bitterness as n result of the
campaign through which I have just
passed, yet I cannot help feeling that
I have been more unjustly treated and
misrepresented than even party ends
may appear to Justify. The whole fire

on me, and I was obliged to stand It,
shut up in my home as the result of an
accident, not able to get out and say

WILL LIKELY AMOUNT TO NAUGHT
Important Member of tbe Conference
Shies at Some Colombian
San Jose, Costa Rica, Xov. 10. The
reason why General Vargas-Santos,
military governor of the Colombian
revolution, did not go to Panama to
attend the conference arranged to take
place yesterday on board the L'nitcd
States battleship Wisconsin, in Pan
ama harbor, between representatives
of the Colombian government and of
the revolutionists, is because the gov
ernment of Colombia according to ad
vices received here intended to limit
the subject of the conference to the
acceptance of the dcree of amnesty re
cently promulgated by the president of
Colombia. "Senor Marroquin. General
Santo Domingo arrived here last month
bearing peace proiosals from the Co
lombian government to General Vargas-Santos.
Explains 111 Government's Purpose.
He said the purpose of his govern
ment in calling the peace conference
was to establish an effective and last
ing peace which Would harmonize the
Interests of the several political par
ties concerned in the revolution. The
matter was discussed between General
Vargas-Santos and the Colombian rep
resentative, who exchanged a number
of cablegrames with the Colombian
authorities at Panama, with the result
that General Vargas-Santo accepted
the proposals made by Generals Per
domo and Salazar, of the Colombian
government, and General Ilerrera, of
Here's -Where the Friction Comes In.
At this point of the negotiations
General Vargas-Santo received ad
vices to the effect that notwithstanding
the proposals of the Colomman gov
ernment, made through its representa
tives here, Colombia purposed limit
ing the conference to the ucceptane of
the decree of amnesty. General Vargas-Santo
thereupon refused to accept
such a proposition and decided to with
draw from the confereiwce, which he
says he considers futile.
VIOLATION OF PUBLIC FAITH
What Colombia Is Charged with In the
Case of I'ribe-l'ribe.
At the same time the military direc
tor of the Colombian revolution learn
ed that the Colombian government had
issued orders to General Tovar to im
prison the revolutionary General
l'ribe-T rlbe and sentence him to death
without mercy. This order was given
in spite of General Pribe-l'ribe's capi
tulation to the government forces,
which occurred at Rio Frio, Colombia,
last month. The receipt of iiils news,
which is considered in Colombia rev
olutionary circles here to be a shame
ful violation of public faith, furtner
decided General Vargas-Santos not to
attteud the peace conference at Pan
ama, and he Issued orders to the Co
lombian revolutionary army to con
tinue its warfare.
G-neral Vargas-Santos declares he is
willing to make peace providing that
the Colombian government will recog
nize the civn and political rights of
which the Liberal party has been de
prived for the last seventeen years,
but not otherwise.
