Will right for n Hrpnrnto Voting L'rcclnct. A large and enthusiastic crowd of Olaa voters turned out last Fri day evening to file their choice for the District Committee mid dele gates to the Territorial Convention. Considerable discussion was, had over the action of the Republican Central Committee in not recogniz ing the Ninth Precinct. The Pres ident asked Territorial Committee man F. U. McStockcr to explain to the Club the position he had taken in the matter and the present status of the situation. Mr. McStockcr said: "Some little time ago I wrote Governor Dole asking him to establish n pre cinct in Olaa, so as to give residents here an opportunity to vote, which was practically denied them under existinc circumstances voters hav ing to travel nine to thirty miles to enjoy the franchise dear to Ameri can people. On January 21st the Executive Council passed a resolu tion making this the Ninth Precint. "The nction of the Council was published in the Advertiser of the 2 1 st. "It was not officially signed and on this petty technicality the Cen tral Committee are trying to rule us out, I intend to fight the propo sition to a finish and can't under stand the position they take, it cer tainly isn't for the good of the party." The following members were nominated for the District Com mittee: J. F. Clay, II. Eldcrts, Win. M. McQuaid, G. D. Supe, II. Wicks, H. J. Williams. Delegates to the Territorial Con vention: Henry Hayes, Geo. W. Paty. Brief addresses were made by the several candidates. Geo. W. Paty made a stirring address to the natives, which was loudly ap- nlauded. It was voted to have a special meeting after the election August 2 and invite Judge Little, Rev. Mr. Desha and Representative James Lewis to address the guests and members of Olaa Republican THE VOUTLAND'S" MTOIIY. Gallant Fight or Steamer In the Arctic Ico Floes. Port Townsend (Wash.), July 15. The steamer Portland, Cap tain Lindquist, for which fears were entertained in the ice floes of the Arctic seas, came into port this afternoon looking none the worse for her experiences in the north. While conceding that the vessel had n very narrow escape, Captain Lindquist asserts that he felt throughout the trying days of her imprisonment that she would come out all right. His principal fear centered about the time the jam would take place, and the events at that momentous time showed that he had good cause for fear. When the smash-up occurred the stanch Portland was lifted like a cork high out of the water, held a few moments, which seemed cen turies, on top of the quivering mass, and then the ice settled out from under her and the vessel was dropped violently back into the water, churning up a mighty wave that drenched the packet from stem to stem. From May 7th until June 27th the Portland was at the mercy of the ice floes, and in that time was carried from latitude so deer, is miu. north and 16S dcg. 2 mill, west to fo deg. 8 min. north and 168 deg. 5 min.- west every passing day having its terror concerning the final dissolution of the floe. The calm determination of Captain Lindquist and his officers went far toward convincing the passengers and few gave utterances to their fears. When the pack passed Cape Prince of Wales, four venturesome passengers lelt the Portland to make their way ashore. After proceeding forty miles, the party returned bearing W. S. Bliss of San Francisco with both feet frozen. This was the only acci dent marking the entire trip of the Portland. Captain Lindquist ascribes his vessel's predicament to overclaims iastu in the race to reach Nome first with tidings from the outside to the people who had been isolated for many mouths. The Portland being in advance of the procession, was more firmly caught than were the other vessels, which met only the slush ice and were enabled to back out when the pack came down on them. May 10th the heavy pack came down and the Portland was cut off from all possible chance of escape. Several days later the Jcanic ap peared on the scene and was soon a prisoner, and the two vessels re mained in the ice until June 27th, escaping within a few hours of each other. On June 5th the Portland was carried through Bchriug straits at a high speed on the floating field of ice, impelled by a strong northerly current. Twenty days later the highest point was reached, the vessel being then 60.08 degrees north and 168.05 degrees west. Two days later the watch from the forcpeak shouted "Clear ahead 1" and after that the break-up oc curred. After being raised high and then plunged back again into the icy water Captain Lindquist knew that the long-looked-for opportunity had arrived, and soon had the Portland bucking with all her weight and the full strength of her engines against the apparently insurmount able barriers of the ice between her and freedom. Time after time the plucky vessel bounded back like a ball from the wall of ice, but, noth ing daunted, Captain Lindquist persevered, and, after six hours of the hardest sailing ever done by the Portland, she forced the ice apart and went scudding out into her native element. The rejoicing on board was some thing indescribable, tears and cheers intermingling with the shrill screech of the whistle sig nalling victory to the Jeanie. With this vessel the same course was pursued. Six hours after the Portland was free the stanch old Jeanie, Captain Mason, came steam ing out to join her and both pro ceeded to Nome,, where they were received with great enthusiasm. The Portland had sustained no in- JUiy Wllaii.vi.nii -iuv.-iuu5u-uin., ience among the icebergs. The Jeanie had her propeller broken and had to be assisted to Nome, where she still was when the Port laud left. In the cargo discharged at Nome were several large and finely con structed dories not on the manifest. These were the result of the care and foresight of Captain Lindquist, who had them constructed from the lumber aboard to be used if any emergency required the passengers and the crew to take to the boats. FIVE THOUSAND MAIDENS. One of tho Ilenutlful Features of the World's Fair. World's Fair Grounds, St. Iouis, July 12. Five thousand young women from Iowa to sing the praises of that state upon a special occasion at the World's Fair is the suggestion brought up at the meet ing of the Iowa World's Fair Com mission the other day. To the credit of the commission be it said that the proposition met with unan imous approval. The commission will concern itself first with the question of a suitable building at the Imposition. The Iowa appro priation is $125,000, and the com mission will aim to exploit a va riety of State interests, particularly the opportunities for manufactur ing and mining. The agriculture possibilities and realities of Iowa are so well known that the com mission desires that the public shall not overlook the other important interests.
