Seattle, Wash.. July IB. Tho exodus to
tho Klondike gold fields began to-day, stimu
lated by tha piles o( cold dust that came down
on the steamer Portland yesterday and by
the wonderful stories of tho richness of tha
mints told by tho fortunate miners.
Early this morning crowds began gathering
at tho ocean dock from which tha regular steam
ers 8ill erery five days to witness the departure
of tho steamer Alki. advertised to sail at 0
There were men, women, children, horses,
cattle, sheep and hof5.all bound (for ths won
derful gold regions, going overland by nay ot
The deck of the ship was being converted into
stock pens, and scores of carpenters were en
gaged in the construction ot stalls.
The horses are to bo used as pack animals
orer tho Alaskan trails. The cattle and sheep
will be converted Into dollar steaks for tha hun
gry Klondikers. This Is the price per pound for
fresh meat In that country.
Freight accumulated at the dock faster than
the vessel could receive It, and the passenger
limit was reached long beforo tho sailing time.
Uundrcds that anticipated taking the first ship
were turned away disappointed.
Two hundred, however, were sandwiched In
the cabin and steerage, with the cattle on deck
and the horses and sheep In the hold.
These gold seekers are permitted by the steam
ship companies to carry the usual amount of bag
gage (150 pounds), besides provisions enough to '
last a year at the mines. They anticipate mak
ing the Journey from Seattle to the mines by tha
last of August or not later than Sept. 5.
Tbey soiled away in tho best of spirits amid
ths cheers ot thousands ot friends congregated
along the dock.
Immediately opposite tha Ocean dock, where
the Alki was loading, the steamer Portland.
tho vessel whose arrival caused all this
Intense excitement, was lying at tha coal
bunkers receiving coal and arranging for her
departure to St. Michael on Tuesday. This
steamer for many years was hoodooed under
the name ot Haytian Republic She changed
her name and with It her fortune.
Good luck has since attended every voyage,
and her last, which terminated yesterday morn
ing, was a winner. Her passenger accommoda
tions have all been taken, and about 200 have
been turned over for August. On her next trip
she will carry 230 in tho cabin and steerage.
Her passengers are only permitted to carry
150 pounds baggage. The vessel's owners have
refused to carry freight excepting their own at
any price.
The rate o f passage from Seattle to Dawson on
the Klondike River is 9150. Among those who
save engaged passage on her are ex-Gov. John
A. McGraw and son.
At Yexler Dock and Baker's Wharf two
schooners are receiving freight and preparing
accommodations for from 150 to 200 passengers.
They are both bound for St. Michael, and an
ticipate sailing Tuesday or Wednesday.
The statement was made this afternoon that
-. a syndicate had been organized for the purpose
of chartering the steamer City of Seattle.
She has passenger accommodations for 500
or COO. and is a very fast boat, capable of mak
ing the passage to St. Michael In eight or ten
days. A new Una of fast river steamboats to
ply on the Yukon, running in connection with
her. Is also suggested.
The regular Alaska line contemplates putting
on another steamer this week, and by this
means hopes to be In a position to accommodate
those who are desirous ot taking the inner or
overland route by way of Juneau.
The returned Klondikers have been very par
ticular in warning those who contemplate going
to the mines to carry provisions enough to last
them not less than a year.
They say that while miners are proverbial for
generosity Klondike is an exceedingly cold
country and the fountains ot human kindness
freeze up.
Letters received here from naval officers at
St. Michael say there Is fully $2,000,000 in gold
dust at that point awaiting shipment, and It
is quite probable that this will come down by
the steamer Portland on her down trip.
The greater portion of the gold dust that eame
in yesterday was consigned to the San Francisco
Mint and Helena Sampling Works. Some of It
was Durchased hers by banks and manufactur
ing jewellers.
Leading wholesale houses are doing large
business in the way of outfitting for the miners,
and trading generally is feeling the Influence of
these great gold discoveries.
It Will Be Early Enough Xnt Spring ta Leave
ror tie Klondike.
3 l.t Fkascibco. July IS. The fact that to-day
was Sunday, when men had more leisure to talk.
Increased the craze about the Klondike gold dig
, gings. Erery one discussed the remarkable re-
ports from tha returned miners who reached
Seattle and talked of the opportunities for get
ting Into the new camp at Dawson City this fall.
Careful estimates show that the Alaska Com
mercial Company cannot transport mora than
200 persons through to Dawson this year, while
the North American Transportation Company,
which runs from Seattle to St. Michael and
there connects with the Yukon River boats,
cannot carry more than 400. Those who start
from here or from Seattle as late as Aug. 25 or
Eept. 1 will not get beyond St. Michael this year.
The tcamer Portland will leave Seattle on
next Thursday, and the Excelsior will leave
here ou July 29. Tha number of people who
C2u get In by way of Juneau Is limited, as the
snow flies by Sept. 15, and Indians cannot bo
procured to pack tha supplies. Of course, a
man can go in "light," as old Alaskans say, that
Is, parking cc bis back fifty or sixty pounds of
grub and blankets, but few will make the ven
ture in this way, as they would be helpless
should provisions become scarce. Ono of the
Alaska Company's officials says that not mors
than ' ooo more men from the States can reach
Dawson this fall.
These, w UIi tho 2.000 miners scattered along
the Yukon HIver who have already rushed In or
are on the way, would make 1,000 strangers
added to ihe June population of 3,000. These
7.000 .an be fed, but a larger number would
create a famine. Last year, with only 2,500 on
the ground, there was much pinching for food.
and rations had to Le doled out to make the sup
plies last until the first stesmer came np in tho
' spring. While there is much talk hereabout
going In at once. It Is doubtful whether this city
will lontribute more than 1,000 all told to the
boom. Tho men who are eager to try their for
tuno are deterred by fears of starvation.
Old Joe Ladne, who founded Dawson City, and
who left last night on the overland train for his
homo In PI utshurg. N. V.. uttered solemn words
of warning Just beforo bis train pulled out. He
"Dua'tgci into Dawson till next spring, .ta'll
loso nothing by delay, and jou may be spared
from rovributiiig to one of the great calamines
of mlnln.- histor. If 20.000 people rush Into
Daw-sou thil fall half ot them will be without
grub before February, and Ood knows bow they
would be t ed from starvation.
" When I first went to Alaska, six years ago,
conditions were materially different from now,
J There was not so much gold, but a man rartlT
had trouble In picking up more than a living.
There was always, lu most camps, food In plenty.
"Last year, however, we caught It bard. Tnoro
were times when many ot us wero compelled to
live on flour and beans, and were glad to get
that. This was due to tho great Influx ot men.
They practically deserted Forty MUo and Circle
City, and It was Impossible for boats to bring In
enough substantial provisions tor all. The same
thing will occur this year, and I look for starva
tion to Inrado Dawson City.
"There Is room In Klondike for thousands ot
miners, but they must go at It gradually. All
that section Is filled with nuggets, and In my
opinion there will bo strikes made far richer
than those now in sight Forty Mile and Circle
City Is Just a little too far west to make mining
very profitable. The ledge, as w know now. Is
further east. I do not mean by this that mining
at the camps named did not pay, but rather that
returns were small for tho amount ot labor in
volved. Later, when It Is possible to get
machinery la there, those claims will be very
TalnaWc, and In my opinion will yield millions."
With tha opening ot next year the conditions
for communication with the outside world will
be materially better. Ladue Intends to take up
with htm a number ot telephones, which he will
string up between Dawson City, Forty Mile,
and Circle City. The mining camp proper will
also be connected with Dawson City, thus obvi
ating many tiresome Journeys for supplies.
There Is also wild talk ot a railroad along the
Yukon River, which could be laid next summer,
so sj to make tho new bonanza camp practically
Independent of river navigation. In only a few
places, ths enthusiasts say, would snow sheds
be necessary, as tha strong winds blow the snow
clear from the track for ths greater part ot tha
Mr. Ladue said he expected to return to tho
Klondike In a few weeks, when he would per
fect a scheme that would boom Dawson City.
Ha would not tell what It was. but before he left
it was learned that several stock brokers were
anxious to organize companies for the biggest
claims In the Klondike district, and place the
shares on sale in San Francisco. It is understood I
that the scheme has met with little favor. I
It Is probable that the people ot Dawson City
will organize a Stock Beard. In which event tha
scenes on Pine street, in the good old Bonanza
days, will be retnacted.
Some hard lurk stories come out incidentally
when returned miners are telling ot their good
fortune. Jack McTuston. ona ot the original
Alaska pioneers. Is expected by the next steam
er. He has grub-staked hundreds ot miners, yet
he comes back himself with no money. He was
the founder ot the Alaska Pioneer Society. The
requisite for admission Is that a person shall
have spent seven years In the Territory. There
are 110 charter members ot this society.
Stories have been printed here ot the extrava
gance ot some ot the newly returned miners,
but they are fakes. Ladue is the only man of
the party who succumbed to tha temptation to
buy Jewelry. He purchased a diamond ring and
a watch and had nuggets made into cuff buttons
and a cravat pin. Tho others simply bought
new ready mode clothes and Indulged In what
their appetites craved in the way ot food. Many
of the miners are Germans, Swedes, and Nor
wegians, and most ot them have sent a large
part of their money to the old country to their
families. Several of these men are preparing to
take a trip abroad and return next spring, but
they havn't even discarded their blue shirts and
slouch hats. The style ot dress they wore In tha
mines seems good enough for them here.
A pathetic story of hardships ,endured,,by
many miners and the devotion "of a partner was
told to-day by one ot the returned men at the
Commercial Hotel. Be said two ot his friends,
both young nun, started from Circle City to
prospect. They bad bad luck, and were return
ing with a sledge when one fell sick and died.
His companion packed the body of his partner
on a sledge and hauled it mora than 300 miles in
order to give it a Christian burial.

Sax Fraxcisco, July IB. The craze about
the Klondike millions has caused Califomlana
to Ignore the rich pocket of 42,000 struck by
old pioneer Colby and a 10-year-old boy, Roy
Beckwith. in the Tanxy mine near Jamestown
in Tuolumne county. The two miners had
leased the property from Tanzy, the owner, who
paid recently only (400 for it, as It was re
garded as worked out. They agreed to pay
Tanzy one-quarter of what they cleaned up.
They worked for months without striking any
thing and Colby bad reached almost his last
dollar. He is gray-haired and broken down,
but bis young partner hated to let go, so they
kept on.
Suddenly they struck a pocket, and on Thurs
day afternoon took out 930.000. Since then they
have taken out $12,000 more, and the pocket Is
not exhausted. Tho ore was so rich that they
crushed It with a primitive two-stamp mill,
getting out $40,000 In four hours, which beats
the record for so small a mill.
Colby at one time worked In the Bonanza
mine, which holds the banner record for tha
richest pocket, as $33,000 was taken out in an

WaSiicioTOX, July 18. Notice has been served
on the Democratic members ot ths Tariff bill
conference committee that tho report, as com
pleted and signed by the Republican conferees
to-day, will bo submitted to them for their ap
proval to-morrow at 0:30 A. M. The conference
agreement will be presented to the House
promptly after It meets at noon, and a special
order will be adopted for Its consideration,
Tha wheals have besn greased for prompt ac
tion in the House before tha session and to
morrow, so that the conference report can be
presented to the Senate on Tuesday in order
that it may be passed upon by that body as
promptly as possible. Speaktr Read is confi
dent that this programme can be carried out.
Chairman Dlnglsy of the House Ways and
Means Committee and Benator Allison, acting
Chairman ot ths Senate Committee on Confer
ence, have been at work all day long at tba Cap
itol, assisted by Messrs. Cleaves and Courts,
clerks ot the Senate and House Committees on
Appropriations, respectively; Clerk Lord of tha
House Ways and Means Committee; B.
N. D. North of Boston, who has acted
as clerk ot tha Sub-Committee on Finance
since the' consideration ot tha Tariff bill
was begun, and three typewriters and
stenographers. They had a herculean task be
fore them, and at first thought that they could
not conclude It to-night. They did so, however,
and the conference report and tha manuscript
of the bill as It will appear when the proposed
changes are made were sent to the printers early
in the eveninjr and approved by tha full meeting
of the conferences at a late hour to-night.
The Senate conferees have no hesitation in
saying that the bill, ai It comes from the Con
ference Committee, will fall short temporarily
of producing the necessary amount ot revenue
by $15,000,000 or $20,000,000. When tha Houso
bill was reported to the Senate, Mf. Aldrich.
speaking for the Senate Finance Committee,
said that It would not at once produce revenue
enough, and he is ot the same opinion still.
Chairman Dingtey does not publicly make this
admission, but it Is well known that during the
sessions of the Conference Committee he agreed
with the opinions of tha Senate conferees that It
will be necessary for the Appropriations Commit
tees of the two Houses to cut down the expendi
tures very materially In order to make up the
deficiency of the new Tariff bill for a year or
At least two-thirds of the amendments placed
on the bill in the Senate were adhered to by the
conference, but many ot them were verbal and
unimportant in their character. Some of the
most important changes made by the Senate,
however, will be found in the new bill, and near
ly all ot them are designed for the purpose ot
Increasing the amount of revenue to be derived
from It.
Notwithstanding the persistent and wide
spread statement that the House sugar schedule
was adopted by the conference, this Is not tho '
fact. The schedule agreed upon Is a new one,
and It is entirely different from any sugar
schedule ever befere Included in a tariff bllL
It is a scientifically constructed schedule, and
ana of the much-maligned, so-called sugar Sena
tors said to-night that when It is read and under
stood by the public It will be accepted as a fair
honest, and sensible piece of work. It is admit
ted by the Senate and House conferees that tha
new schedule will provide two or three million
dollars ot revenue more than under the schedule
as it was presented to the conference. It reads
as follows:
"Sugars not above number sixteen Dutch
standard In color, tank bottoms, syrups ot
cons Juice, melada, concentrated melada, con
crete and cencentrated molasses, testing
by the polariscope not above seventy
five degrees, ninety-five one-hundredths of
ono cent per pound, and for ererv
additional degree shown by the Dolariscopic test
thirty-five one-thousandths of one cent per
pound additional, and tractions of a degres in
proportion; and on sugar above No. 15 Dutch
standard in color, and on all sugar which has
gone through a process of refining, one cent and
ninety-five one-hunrdedths ot one cent per
pound; molasses testing above forty-five de
grees and not above fifty-six degrees,
three cents per gallon; testing fifty
six degrees and above. six cents per
gallon: sugar drawings and sugar sweepings
shall be subject to duty as molasses or sugar,
as the case may be, according to polariscoplo
Senator Lodge's pet scheme for a tax on stocks
and bonds, wbich was adopted by the Senate
with surprising ease and unanimity, was
dropped by the conference committee In the
same hasty manner, as it did not seem to hare
a friend at court. It Is not thought that the
revenue sought to be derived from It will be
seriously missed, and It Is the general opinion
of the members of the conference that it would
be a very difficult provision to carry out. Any
loss that might possibly be sustained by the de
feat of this tax on bonds and stocks Is more than
made up by the action of the conferees in the
restoration of argols to the dutiable list.
The very last Item in the bill to be agreed to In
conference yesterday, and one that caused a
very prolonged and heated controversy, was the
Senate amendment relating to reciprocity. The
new provision Is a combination ot the Senate
and House propositions, there being a radical
change in the list of articles that are to form
the basis of reciprocal arrangement between
the United States and other countries.
Senator Aldrich was the only member of the
conference who remained loyal to the propo
sition to keep works of art on tba free
list. In tha new law, paintings, statu
ary, and all works of art, except books
for libraries (which remain free), are restored
to the dutiable list, together with cotton ties,
burlaps, matting. Ac Cotton ties take a specific
duty of one-half a cent, and on the other articles
there has been a light decrease of the Senate
The wool schedule, as agreed to, provides for
a duty of 11 cents a pound on flrst-claM, 12
cents on second-class, and on third-class wools
4 cents a pound on that below 12 cents per
pound In value and 8 cents above that of 12
cents in value.
The duty on hides has been fixed at 15 per
cent, ad valorem. Instead of 20 per cent, as fixed
by the Senate bill. Tha Housa made a strong
fight to have bides restored to the free
list. This paragraph may provoke some de
bate in the Senate, and, indeed, the Democrats
declare that there are many provisions to which
they will not agree. Some time ago the Demo
crats served notice on their Republican col
leagues that If the articles placed on the free
list by a combination of Democratic, Populist,
and Republican votes should he restored to the
dutiable list, they would debato the bill for a
month, if necessary, in order to have their way.
They are still making their threats, but the
i Republican leaders are not at all fearful that
tbey will carry their point. They expect to
bring the bill to a voto after three or four days
of debate.

James Huey. tha Janitor of the flats at 123
West Thirty-third street, took his don llruno, a
cross between a shepherd and a St. Bernard, out
on the steps in front ot the building last evening
to cool off. The dog was a big one, and the heat
ot tho last two weeks had mode It nervous and
Irritable. There were a number of children tn
the street, and Huey decided to hold tho dog so
that It could not chase the children. Tho dog
barked at the children when he saw them, and
Huey ordered him to stop. The dog turned on
him and bit off the end ot one ot his fingers.
Huey dropped tha dog's collar and howled.
The dog ran into tha house. It scampered
through the halls, barking with so much en
ergy that all ot the women in the flats screamed.
The dog reached the basement door and bolted
down Into the cellar; then It ran Into the front
room of the basement. On the way to the room
Bruno upset a pile ot china.
Huey had got a bucket of water to determine
whether the dog was mad. but when he found It
in the front basement room he locked the door,
and thought that the dog was safely imprisoned,
for a time, at least. While he had been chislnor
tho dog all the women in the bouse had lifted
their voices in a mighty screim. which aroused
tho whole neighborhood and alarmed Bruno
Tba dog. on being locked In the room, started
to climb between the bars. It was a pretty Ufht
fit, but the dog managed to do it, and Jumped
out into the yard of the flat. Iluey heard it
Jump. Every one in the street did. Huey ran
out and grabbed the dog by the collar Just as
Policeman Uotchkiss ran up the street.
" I'll shoot him." said the cop.
" Well. Ill bold hold him while you him,"
cafd Huey. "Be sure you don't hit me instead
of the dog."
The policeman stepped back two or three feet
and drew his revolver. He aimed with caro at
the dog's head and fired. The shot wasn't
mortal and three more of them were fired. The
dog was finally killed. Huey Jet ko of the body
and then tookrd at bis hands. He was surprised
to find that the flesh was torn off the socond
and third fingers of his right band. From the
naturvot the wounds it was plain that he had
been struck by ono of the policeman's bullets.
He looked reproachfully at Ilotcbkiss and then
went to the New York Hospital to have his
wounds dreatol. He said It wasn't the pollco
man'a fault.

While Policeman John Clancy of the Weit
125th street station was passing the corner of
Forty-eighth street and Tenth avenue at 9:20
o'clock last night he noticed a (mail boy cling
ing to the lamp post and pulling the fire alarm
for all he was worth.
After one alarm had been rang, the boy rang
another. The policeman concluded a conflagra
tion must be raging near by. So he said to the
" Where's the fire, Johnny !"
"Right down do block dere. Two 'r tree
houses trarnin" upl People can't get outl Run
down rtere 'n help 'em' You'll get yer name In
de palp," was the urchin's answer.
As there was nothing to show that there was
any fire within a mlln of the place, the pllcemsn
nabbed the boy by the collar and said:
" You Just take me to that fire."
The boy tried to siulrm away, but, finding
that he couldn't, he owned up that he had rung '
the alarm " Just to ee the firemen come." He 1
had his desire gratirlt-d, for as he was making
the explanation fire or six engines, three hook-and-ladder
trucks, and a water tower came
tearing up from several different directions.
The boy was placed under arrest, and locked
up in tho West Forty-seventh street station. He
described himself as Joseph O'Brien. I3years old,
of 508 West Forty eighth street. As he was led
to a cell, he remarked
" Gee, but do engines got dero whoopln', didn't

Lctcour, Neb., Juiy If. It was announced i
from the Roman Cathollu churches here to-day
that the differences exlBtlng for somo time be
tween Bishop Bonacum and several of his
priests bad been eettled to the satisfaction of
all concerned. The quarrel has extended over
a period of five years, and provoked some very
animated scenes and discussions.
At one time twenty priests in the diocese wero
In open rebellion at;alnt Bishop Bonacum. Tbey
formed a powerful secret organization to pro
mote their Interests, known as the Holy Alllanco
ot St. Barnabas.
The trouble grew out of tho alleged tyranny of
the Bishop in removing his priests in an arbi
trary manner. At one time Bishop Bonacum
was In a police court charged with criminal
Ubol growing out of the excommunication of
one of the priests. The cases wero several times
reviewed by Mgr. r-atolli and Mgr. Martinelll
and were tried by a canonical court at Dubuqiio,
and were once reviewed by the Holy Father at
By the final settlement both sides make con
cessions. Fathers Fitzgerald and Murpby, the
niott aggressive of thoso In opposition to the
Bishop, are well provided for. The former will

Poi-ortUEErstE, July 18. Howell C. Roes,
President ot tho Flshkill and Matteawan gas
works In Flshkill and a son ot William A. Rccs
of New York, escaped yesterday from a mad
house tn Central Valley, Orange county, N. Y.,
to which ho says ho was committed without
good reason, and, after a lively experience In ths
mountains, where he spent the night dodging
bloodhounds and attendants, who wero on his
trail on bicycles, ho arrlred this morning
at the home of his counsel, James G.
Meyer, in Flshkill, weary and footsore, with
clothing torn and soiled and looking like a
tramp. Mr. Merer had already mado an appli
cation to Judtto Barnard for a writ ot habeas
corpus to secure his client's relcaso from the re
treat In Orange county, and ho at onco accom
panied Mr. Rccs to Poughkcepsle and went be
foro the Judge, who gave Mr. Recs a totter to
Dr. Pilgrim ot the Hudson River State Hospital
asking Dr. Pilgrim to entertain Mr. Roes until
Tuesday, w hen ,h!s case will corns before tha
Heea was committed last Wednesday to D. J.
IL Ferguson's Falkirk Sanitarium at Central
Valley, but on whoso complaint he does not
know. In an Interview today he laid he had
not been feeling well lately and was preparing
to take a trio to Europe. He was busy In get
ing his affairs In shape, and among other things
proposed transferring his stock in tho Flshkill
Gas Company to his father. He had an appoint
ment last Tuesday with bis father In Lawyer
White's office in the Pulitzer building. He
went there, but found nobody to meet him.
He remained until the next day at the
Manhattan Hotel and was taken In custody
when about to leave and arraigned before
Magistrate Job Hedges. Mr. Rees says he hod
no chance to be represented by counsel and was
treated cruelly by the Magistrate, with whom,
he asserts, he has had some political differences.
The commitment papers, ho alleges, were pre
pared with celerity and he was hustled off to
Central Valley. Ills counsel, Mr. Meyer, read of
his plight in tho newspapers, and on Friday got
from Judge Barnard a writ ot habeas cor
pus, armed with which he went to Central
Valley and saw Dr. Ferguson. The lat
ter refused to receive tho paper, and told
Lawyer Meyer that he would send the Court a
certificate showing that Mr. Rees was In such a
condition that be was not fit to be moved.
While the lawyer and doctor were talking the
patient. In another part of the building, baa dis
carded a sheet, which he says was the sole gar
ment allowed him. and in some manner had se
cured his clothing, which had been taken away
from him. He put on his clothes in a closet and
escaped through a w indo w.
It was then 0 o'clock In the afternoon. Ho
plunged into the mountains and walked east
ward toward the Hudson River. His escape was
discovered In live minutes. Mr. Rees thinks
Keeper Callahan saw him whsn he jumped from
the window. When he got over a mil near the
Sanitarium he heard sounds of pursuit, and
threw himself into a shallow brook. He heard
three men discuss what they should do to catch
blm, and listened to their agreement to go back
and get dons to track him.
Mr. Hens as soon as he dared more made a
wild dash through the woods. To throw the
dogs oil tho scent ne plunged through mountain
streauis un Jo his waist and doubled and re
doubled ou nil tracks.
At daylight this morning, faint and hungry,
he reached West Point. He borrowed 15 cents
from a telegraph operator which he paid a boat
mm to take him across the river to Garrison's
where he boarded a Hudson River Railroad
train and, getting up in a car, asked it there was
a man present who would lend blm 20 cents
to pay his faro to Flshkill. The money was
furthcoming', and in this manner he got to his
journey's end.
Mr. Kcc3 gives no explanation of tho reason for
shutting him up in a madhouse, and makes no
charge of conspiracy agalnot any particular per
son. He said his suspicions were aroused that
something was in the wind before he was sum
moned to the presence ot Magistrate Hodges,
but he could not dellno bis suspicions, and tha
denouement took him hy surprise.
Rees is known In Flshkill as a hustler. Be
sides taking hold ot and organizing the gas
company there, he stArtcd a club at Van Wyck
Lake and proposed to ue the water from the
lake for bis gn plant, besides making of tho re
sort a rendezvous for wealthy men. The village
people say there was merit in his scheme. Rees
1 35 yers old and l a fine-looking man. Sev
eral weeks nwo ho had an unpleasant experi
ence at Flshkill village. One Sunday he was
driven from Van Wck Lake to the village
chtircn. During the service a young woman
and a man entered and took seats beside him In
the pew.
I After the service the woman tried to speak to
him, but he repulsed her. He entered bis car
riage and was driven to meet a friend who at
tended another church, and at the ent-ance was
met by the young woman, wbo tried to speak to
him again. She followed htm to his carriage,
and when ho told his coachman to drive off
throw herself In front of tho horses.
A large crowd bud gathered, and one of tho
spectators was the village constable, who, at tho
risk of his life, pulled the woman from under
ths horses' feet and saved her from Injury. The
woman refused to give her name and tujon left
for New York. Mr. Hees could not lw persuaded
to make a complaint against her. It is said that
she was a typewriter In a New York office and
that the man with her was her husband.
I Word was received yeaterdar morning at Mr.
Rces's home, lflrt Fast Fortieth street, that he
I hid escaped. Mr. ltees's brother Richard and a
I friend startid for Central Valley a soon as pos

Passengers In Sleepers an Two Trains Lert With

ATLA.NTA, Ga., July 18,-Traln No. 7 on the
Bouthern Railway left hore last night at a late
hour for Chattanooga with tho usual sleeper,
well filled with well-known persons, attached to
the rear. It arrived In Homo about 2 o'clock,
and waited eight minutes for tho down train to
Ona of tho passengers, just as tho train was
about to depart, discovered that his trousers,
containing all his cash for travelling expenses,
was missing. It did not take hlra long to com
municate his discovery to the rest.
Every traveller found he had lost something
of value; some ot them clothes and watches, alt
of them money. A wild search through the
train was organized, but the bird had flown.

few miles from Atlanta, woke up to
make the heartbreaking discovery that the
only rainiest left him in which to perambulate
the aisles wns a pair of scanty unmen

Every peacefully snoozing tourist awoke
to the mortification of finding not only bis
money and valuables missing, but even the vest
ments, which custom decrees as necessary to re
spectability. When the train rolled Into this city this morn
Ing the passengers not only lacked proper cloth

gers of both sexes left tho sleeper clad In varied
and strangoly contrasted garments, which pro

The total amount estimated to have been lost
Is over 91.000. The theory Is that the robber or
robbers embarked at Atlanta on the up train,
and after working It got on the south-bound
express and completed operations there. Thoy
then must have slipped off at some way station.
