Pavey, who was drowned June 6. Oscar Anderson, employed at Crosby Bros., received a copy of the fTacoma News, which contained the no tice of the death and handed it to Mr. Pavey. Al Pavey spent his boyhood in Topeka and has many acquaintances here. He was for a time superintendent of the mater service for the Santa Fe at La Junta and went from that place to Ta coma. He has three brothers: E. T. Pa vey of the police force, E. A., who lives in Rock Creek, and J. A., who lives at Berryton. E. T. Pavey has written to the authorities in Tacoma and Bluff City to find what was done with the body. He has wired a friend in Ta coma and will also inquire of the I. O. O. F., of which order his brother was an enthusiastic member. Following is the clipping from the Tacoma News: "Al Pavey, who drowned last month eft the mouth of the Tukon, with five companions, by the capsizing of the Sloop Seattle, was. for a number of years superintendent of the water ser vice on the Northern Pacific here. "Pavey's body was washed ashore at Bluff City, Topkuk. where it was found by A. C. Gordan, a miner in the Top kuk. There were four others in the party and all are supposed to be drown ed. The party was attempting to make a direct course from the mouth of the .Yukon to Cape Romanoff, a distance of sixty miles by open sea, thus saving s. long detour around the coast line in thoal water. From the mouth of the river in a clear day Cape Romanoff can plainly be seen, looking like a crown of a. black hat sticking up out of the ocean. When out twenty miles or more tthe great storm of June 6 and 7 is sup posed to have overturned the sloop, xvhich, was fonnd cast ashore at Bluff City. "Mr. Pavey was married about four years ago to Miss Florence Levering. In the fall of 1S97, when the Klondike rush, waaat its full height. Pavey was staked by some of the officials of the Northern Pacific and went over the Chilcoot Pass route, while his wife went to her parents in California. Mrs. Pa vey had started to join her husband and arrived in Skagway two days after he had left. She then returned to Califor nia, where she now lives. Pavey left Dawson May 14, according to a diary found on his body, in company with two other men in skiff. At Circle City the skiff was abandoned and two other men joined the party, taking the Sloop Seattle." HAND IS CRUSHED. martin Riordan Suffers Painful Acci dent at Santa Fe Shops. Martin Riordan who is employed in the coach erecting shops of the Santa Fe in this city was the victim of an accident this morning while at work repairing a car. The gang he was working with were in the act of lifting the end of a car with air jacks. In some manner his left hand was caught between the air jack and the car and was badly bruised. He was taken to the hospital where the wound was dressed. It was found that an amputation would not be necessary although two of the fingers were very badly hurt. He will not be able to re turn to work for some time to come. Riordan worked under C. A. Swanson in the shop. REIFF AND SLOAN. First and Second in Lingfield Park Stakes, London. London, July 13.

Clerks Are Overworked Return ing the Letters. , SIMPLE QUESTIONS. Samples of Some of Those Now on File. News From Tarious State House Departments. The force in the office of the attorney e-eneral and th attorney eeneral him self, will seriously consider the proposi tion of resigning and taKing to me le nuestions con tinues to pour into the department like it has been coming for a wees. The corps of assistants and the prin cipal official of the department have been drawing heavily on the contingent fund for postage during the past two weeks answering hot weather questions which seem to multiply as the warmth Inrrpospi It seems, iudfeing from -some of the questions upon which light is sought, that the people nave auiums the state now but to figure up the value of their wheat and estimate the prospect ior cum, in the meantime, letters of inquiry to keep up a correspondence. , . , Many of the requests for an opinion are referred back to the prosecuting at torney of the county from which the in quiry comes. This was the fate of a number of inquiries yesterday. One man wrote 100 words to inquire if a man 21 years of age, who had voted but once, was liable for road tax. Another asks Mr. Godard to notify him by return mail if there la any law in Kansas compelling a woman driving to keep to the right. Another wants to know if he can prosecute the owner of a steam thresher engine for traversing the public road. A woman writes to ascertain if a neighbor may be compelled by a process of law to keep chickens fenced in. A Scott county man wants to prose cute the government for holding a let ter in the postoffice until the postage is paid by the sender who deposited it in the mail without the necessary stamp. An Ellis county Russian asked B. H. Tracy for his opinion as to the political outlook, explaining that he wanted to be sure and get on the side of the ma jority. , A Wyandotte county man wrote a personal letter to Judge J. S. West ask ing that the administration suppress the celebration of the Fourth of July on the 5th and 6th of the month. James Clayton, chief clerk in the office, was asked by a Barton county neighbor a few days ago while he was at Great Bend, if the governor stood any chance of invalidating the title to his office by being absent a considerable part of the time. A Franklin county man, an enemy or Henry Allen, wants the attorney gen eral to define the duties of the private secretary to the governor. This man says: "Mr. Allen is in Ottawa most of the time." These are but samples of the queries which worry the attorney general's de partment. Then come the letters from the county attorney asKing iur .inti mation on some technical proposition upon which no case is based and the chances are that the question would never be raised in court. . ,v,..

It is not unnat ural that the stock market vesterday should show some reaction from the pro nounced advances which had been made this week, but as a matter of fact a gen erally higher level was the result of the narrow and professional dealings. It was a market in which: in the "earlv hours demonstrations were made which were .effective in causing covering of shorts and the subsequent recession In prices repre sented little more than the profit taking which is natural on the part of buvers who purchased stocks considerably lower. It is apparent by the general dullness which prevails that the dealings at the stock exchange do not originate very far from the immediate Wall street district. Some of the movement in the speculation appears to be logical, but It is not cer tain that sentiment may not in half a day destroy this apparent relation between condition and prices. It was no surprise, however, that the shares of the spring wheat carrying roads generally reached a lower level because even the rerent re ports of improved crop conditions do not venture to predict much beyond half of the usual output. Market Gossip. Liverpool: Wheat, d lower; corn, & higher. Argentine shipments: Wheat, 1,264,000 bu.: corn, 240.000 bu. Chicago receipts: Wheat, 97 cars; grade. 13. Corn, 635 cars; grade, 213.

A prominent Kansas grain dealer Just returned from the spring wheat territory says late rains have improved spring wheat outlook 10 to 20 per cent. Chicago: Market acts toppy at opening. Believe wheat will sell down today. Kansas City receipts: Wheat. 196 cars; last year 40. Corn, 47 cars; last year 12. Oats, 5 cars; lost year 7. Liverpool close: Wheat, d lower; corn, d to V,d lower for the day. Eight cars of wheat received at Topeka tcday. Puts, September wheat, 773c; calls, gic. Puts, September corn, 42Tsc; calls. 45c. Both foreign and northwest crop re ports were of a distinctly better tone throughout the remalnedr of the session, and the short selling which was the nat ural consequense discouraged holders and induced considerable liquidation. Septem ber wheat finaly sold down to 79c, and was bringing 79-c at the close. Corn continued heavy for the balance of the session. The weather in the corn belt continued bullish, but offerings more than equalled the demand. September sold as low as 433?4c, and closed at 43ac. New York Money Market. New York. July 13.
