MSASTROIS FIRE IN THE ELLSWORTH STORE Fire broke out last evening in the Ellsworth store and the line stock of goods has almos4 been completely de stroyed. The stock was valued at something like eight thousand dol lars and is covered only by a two thousand dollar insurance, so that the loss to Mrs. Ellsworth is very severe. The cause of the lire has not been as certained. About half an hour be fore the alarm was sent in Mr. Ells worth extinguished the lire in the stove with water and the appearance of the place near the stove today in dicates that the stove could hardly have been the cause. It is thought possible that a spark flew through a hole and down between the double boauis of the partition. Water was turned in by the fire department in great volume and whatever escaped the blaze fell a victim to the flood. Much excitement was created as the wind was blowing towards the groai .store building of Brown Hawkins, next door, but, fortunately, the flames w'oro got under before injury came to anyone else. A fact worth noting in connection with the occuncnce that tht Ellsworths would have mov ed into their fine new concrete build ing in five or six days.

High officials declar ed openly that the orders to Pershing to get Villa are still rood and they say that if Villa establishes headquarters at Juarez or any other place so close to the border the American troops will take a hand. It is an open secret that if Carranza fails to suppress the bandit the l nited States will adopt a much firmer policy. MAN HUNT PROCEEDS OUT ONSNOW RIVER Stoker was met by Dan Sullivan, the railroad foreman, this morning near Mile 16 and the hunted man said ••Hello, Dun” or some sum s.i. utntion as that. It was right on i'u 1 railroad track but Stoker at or.c< turned off on the trail that loads to his cabin up Snow river. The cabin is on the river but the trail to it leaves the r. r. quite a distance north of where the river crosses the tracks Wild Hill DeWitt, Charley Kmsweile: and three others went up the trail this morning towards the cabin but when word came from Dan Sullivan that Stoker had gone up later Hil Weaver and Percy Pullen, who were stationed at Snow river bridge watch ing for him. followed right after bin up the trail. All the pursuers an armed. Sullivan and Stoker kno\ each other well so that no mistake could be made. Mr. Sullivan say.* Stoker carried his rifle. He had up parently fallen in the river as hi.* clothes are wet, and as it is very cob out there Stoker must either go t» his cabin or freeze. The meeting of Stoker on the rail road track seems to bear out the statement that Stoker was seen yes terday around the place where the shooting was done. W. W. Getchell, a member of the territorial legislat ure, is convinced that he encountered Stoker yesterday around Mile 14 01 thereabouts. The man met by Get chell carried a rifle and came out ol the woods. He muttered some greet ing to Getchell and proceeded on his way. S. Ensor who came with a dog team also believes he met Stoker an<! he and Mr. Getchell both are convinc ed from the description they later goi of the man that it was he. This is written at 1 o’clock and no word had come then to Deputy Mar shal* Evans from the men out after Stoker. Mr. Evans tried to gel some more men to send out on the train this afternoon but the train went out too early to have them ready. The men who have followed up to the river cabin must walk back aoout two miles to the railroad at Mile 16 and then must come this way t) Mi e l~ before they c.*n get to a telephone. The first men to go up the trail left the railroad at !* o’clock tnk< running out the time Stoker was seen by Dan Sullivan on the railroad track was about 10 oVock Mr. Sullivan is a one armed man. The bullet that killed Hendricks inflicted, as the doctors say, four *at al wounds. It entered at the back of the side, chipped off a piece of the heart, cut through the coating of the stomach, and went through the kid ney and liver, one of which organs was shattered to pieces. i Irving was struck in the liver ami was opened yesterday by tin* doctor >. all three. Mrs. Romig, Raughman ami Sloan attending. I‘art ot* the liver was cut away but the physicians say that a good part of the liver could be lost without pecossarily causing d*atn Mis condition is, of course, very pre carious, nevertheless. Stoker also once worked for Store keepei Thompson of the commission and Mr. Thompson describes him as a hard worker and of very reticent manner. A strict watch is li«»in.^‘ kip' all along the railroad and mushers report that all along the way m. a can be seen with rifles in their hand Another posse will lie sent out to night to capture Stoker it he i.* not caught in the meantime. It is the be lief of everyone that he will show •ight unless the exposure breaks him down. The train is to be sent back from Mile 12 this afternoon and will take >ut the additional posse of four nu*n who have been deputized to go after Stoker. The four new men are John (lilpatrick, Jack Lane, Hob SeitTert and Alec Little, all men who can han dle a rifle. Mr. Evans says Stoker is a sort of morose party who seemed to dislike many people. Some time ago he went to the United States commis sioner here and asked for a warrant for a man named Wilbur who, he said had ttruck at him. When Mr. Evans quesi'oned him he found that Stoker had called Wilbur a liar and that Wilbur had only made a motion as if to strike him. There was a rumor in town today that Stoker was on his way to the city bui as Dan Sullivan saw him going up the trail at Mile 16 this morning this rumor is unfounded w ithout a doubt. 1 he ru mor reminds one, however, of the tact that the man who shot the Nelson brothers on the Kuskokwim was be ing chased all over the Ruby district by posses when he walked quietly in to the postoftice in Ruby and asked for his mail. As the matter now stands Stoker has probably gone to his cabin and will be surrounded there by this time. If he has not gone to his cabin and as his clothes are wet he may perish before morning as an other madman did about four years ago in the interior. The train was expected to reach Mile 12 about 2:20 this afternoon on the way in to take out the posse. CABLE STILL DEAD The cable is not yet working and the only messages received today were those sent yesterday, and very few of them at that.
