republican presidential candidate,
spoke at Troy, principally to the work
ers in the shirt and collar factories.
While Mr. Taft is still feeling the ef
fects of his strenuous campaign, he
has recovered from his recent collapse
much more quickly than his physicians
had anticipated. He spoke with vigor
last night, declaring that the election
of William ,J. Bryan would bring on a
panic such as the country has not be
fore experienced, incident to placing
the government in the hands of new
and inexperienced men
William Jennings Bryan and Lewis
Stuyvesant Chanler held five meetings
in New York last night, speaking to
immense crowds of enthusiastic sup
porters. The streets were filled with
monster parades.

NIGHT RIDER
CONFESSES
Business Men and Politicians of
High Standing Implicated by
Leader in Tobacco War.
By Cable to The Dally Gateway.
Tiptonville, Tenn., Oct. 28—Red
Burton, one of the leaders of the night
riders in Tennessee and Kentucky,
yesterday made a full conlession to of
fleers, involving many of the best
known business men and politicians of
the two states in arson and assassina
tion. The names of the men implicat
ed are witheld by the officers, but
many sensational arrests are expected
to follow the confession.
The night riders terrorized the to
bacco growing regions for three
months, and were not finally suppress
ed until the militia and several hun
dred special police were sent into the
field. The object of the raiders was to
prevent the sale and delivery of the
tobacco crop to the agents of the
American Tobacco Company, known
as the tobacco trust. It was claimed
by the riders that the tobacco trust
was attempting to drive out competi
tion in buying and beat down the
of raw tobacco.
The difficulty of suppressing the
night riders was increased by wide
spread sympathy and support in the
ends they were seeking.
Improvements In Postoffice
Miss Gordon is making some changes
in the postoffice which will add to the
comfort and convenience of the room,
chief of which is the placing of lino
leum on the floor to shut out the cold
and make it easier to keep the room
clean.
Consignment of Goods
Miss Phillips, who has recently re
ceived a large consignment of goods for
the Elite Candy Kitchen, has most of
the supplies unpacked and in the cases.
She has ordered two new show cases
which, when placed in position in the
store, will add materially to the ap
pearance of the place.
New Hydrant Installed
A new hydrant has just been placed
at the corner of Third avenue and
Adams street for the purpose of afford
ing better protection, in case of fire, to
the residence section of the town.

THE YENTNA IS
MAKING GOOD
Season’s Output for That Region
and Valdez Creek estimated
at $450,000.
1
The output of the Yentna and the
Valdez creek districts this season will
be close to $450,000, according to esti
mates of all late arrivals in Seward
from the new diggings.
The surprise in the Yentna district
has been the discovery that some of the
best gravel so far is on the benches,
where it was least expected. The dis
covery was made by the Murphy party
in the digging of ditches to bring wa
ter for sluicing. Some of the bench
gravel has yielded as high as $1 a
pan.
The permanent value of the Yentna
as a big camp is now established, say
the miners from Cache, Kahiltna and
other creeks, and all are expecting a
travel to the new field next spring and
summer which may take on the pro
portions of a genuine rush.
P. T. Murphy, who spent the last
two summers in the Yentna district and
recently came back to Seward from a
hurried trip to Seattle, says he be
lieves there will be 1000 prospectors
come in from the outside next spring
for the Yentna alone.
Valdez creek also will attract several
hundred, says Mr. Murphy, and all are
coming by way of Seward.
The completion of the government
trail from Girdwood to Indian creek is
widely known and its importance is
appreciated fully by the prospectors
and miners who are getting ready to
go into the two camps with supplies
and outfits.
Duck shooting by Seward sportsmen
is the favorite pastime these crisp
days. Strings of five to fifteen teal
and mallards in an afternoon are com
mon.
Word comes from Valdez that Re
ceiver Goodwin will begin extensive
repairs on the Alaska Central wharf as
soon as he arrives on the next boat.
The Methodist parsonage is taking
on a new seven-foot porch, with Rev.
L. H. Pedersen as superintendent and
workman in chief.
The new concrete dam being put in
at the head of Lowell canyon by the
Seward Light and Power Company is
about completed. *

FROST BOOSTS
ALASKA CENTRAL
Admits Mistakes Were Made,
and Says Some Employes
Were Dishonest.
By Cable to The Dally Gateway.
Chicago, Oct, 28—A. C. Frost, [(resi
dent of the Alaska Central railway,
just returned from Alaska, admits in
an interview that there was extrava
gance in the building of the road and
that he was deceived in the fitness of
some of the men he employed to man
age the work, fie says, too, that some
of his employes proved to be dishon
est. But the merits of the enterprise,
lie says, far surpasses his expectations,
and he declares the Alaska Central
will be one of the most profitable rail
roads in America. He believes the
London syndicate with whom he is ne
gotiating will be the successful bid
ders at the foreclosure sale, but ad
mits that lie will have no direct con
nection with the new company. He
expects 1500 men to be put on the con
struction work in the spring soon after
the foreclosure sale.
