Ilnsc Conspiracy to Form a. Repub

Seattle, Wash., Nov. 19.—An uncon
firmed story comes from Skagway,
A'aska, under date of Nov. 6, telling of
the diijeovery of what is alleged to be
a huge conspiracy existing at Dawson,
and ramifying to Skagway, Victoria
and Vancouver and Seattle, for the
overthrow of the local government of
thr Northwest Territory, and the es
tablishing of a republic, with Dawson
as its capital.
According to the details of the story,
arms, ammunition and provisions have
been token in over the railroad and
cached at strategic points. Prominent
American residents of Skagway are
said to be ringleaders In the conspir
acy. Miners to the number of 5,000 are
said to await the summons to arms,
ready to fight for the Independence

It is further related that a hurried
conference, lasting until midnight, was
held at Skagway Nov. 5, at which were
present Capt. Corrigan of the North
west mounted police, who had arrived
from across the Canadian border late
that evening. Judge Brown of the
United States district court, United
States Marshal Shoupe, United States
Attorney Frederick and Maj. Hovey,
commanding the United States troops
a"-. Skagway, attended the meeting.
This was the last of several
between the civil and military repre
sentatives of the two powers in rela
tion to "the mysterious transportation
of supplies into the interior and. rumors
of a conspiracy to, lead the miners In
a revolt against the Canadian govern
ment in the Northwest Territory.
Those present maintained subsequent
ly the strictest silence ..concerning the
new evidence laid before them, and
their evident anxiety helped to confirm
rumors of conspiracy.
~:apt. Corrigan took a train back
across the border the next morning,
while United States Marshal Shoupe
embarked on the first steamer for
Seattle, which port he reached several
days ago. The object of his visit Was
presumably to confer by telegraph

The average yield last year was 25.30
bushels per acre, and for the past ten

that a large part of the estimated
