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. Former Governor Wil
liam Larrabee has been made per
manent chairman of the board.
Dyspepsia can be, and is cured by
the use of Pain-Kii.U'k. This is
the most wonderful ami valuable
medicine ever known for this dis
ease; its action upon the system is
entirely different from any other
preparation ever known. The pa
tient while taking this medicine
may cat anything the appetite
craves. Avoid substitutes, there is
but one Pain-Killer, Perry Davis'.
