V TClld Talk ky a Canadian Official About Plan I drrlni; rorelsn Miner American Threats Iff to DrlT Oat Inn Officials, Hoist the Mat, 11 ana Declare a United States Terrltorj. 1 8AS FnANOisco, July S3. Political trouble on the Klondlko Is pretty suro to be bred this win ter by tto Canadian Government, which is smutting under the rntcs proposed In the Ding ley bill, nnd Is bound In some wny to check tho (low of gold from pincers to this country. Nine tenths of tho miners who have made rich strikes on the Bonanza and Eldorado creeks haTo been Americans, and they hare brought tholr gold to this city. This hns caused deep resentment among the Canadian ofllclals. They probably will attempt to enforco new alien labor' laws. A scheme which Is sure to provoke violent re sentment was detailed by Cant. 8trlckland, Into comtnnndant of tho mounted pollen on the Klondlko. on the pnssago down from St. Michael, to William Stanley, nn American miner, who arrived hero to-day by way of Seattle. Stanley was In partnership with three other men, and he took out 9113,000 from a claim on Eldorado Creek In ninety days. Stanley said to-day : "Nothing has made me so hot In years as the talk of Capt. Strickland of measures which the Canadian Government would adopt noxt spring to secure control of the millions of gold from the Klondike. Ho said the plan which ho had already suggested, and which tho Dominion Government was inclined to favor, provided thoy had a large enough pollco force to bo assured of carrying it out, was to pass a law prohibiting the export of gold except by Dominion ofllclals. The gold dust hrought In by the miners of all nationalities would bo carefully wclghod by officials of tho Canadian Government appointed for tho purpose, and fixed value would be placed on tho metal, according to assayers' estimates, and this value would bo paid in monoy of only local value. "Strickland did not explain the exact nature of this cat money or scrip, but he said it would be revised so that the miners should leave most of their wo lit h In that territory. I told him such law could provoke revolution, but he said Canada would have a largo enough forco to sup press any revolt and thnt tho large number of Canadian miners who came in this winter would assist tho authorities." Stanley added that he had talked with several American miners who owned valuable claims on the Klondike, and they all declared that if the Canadians attempted to dictate any terms about the sole or export of gold there would be a miners' meeting and the whole batch of ofll clals would bo shipped out of the Territory, tho American flag would bo run up, and the new Territory of Klondike organized. Stanley added: " I believe Eldorado Creek Is the richest place on earth Just now, though there's no telling what other districts, oven richer, perhaps, may be opened up on tho Eon Ike. Everything that's been said of tho plnce Is true and tho half has not been told. I mado a careful estimate of the wealth on Eldorado Creek, at a low average of 600 a square foot, and the total amounts to 27,000.000. Every foot of ground on my claim that was worked yielded threo times this aver age, even though we lost much fine gold by our crude processes." Every day brings new evldenco that the Gov ernment will be called on to bring stranded prospectors out of the Yukon this winter or else send them food. Hundreds will not wait till spring, but are making arrangements to go to St. Michael by steamers ox sailing craft and I then take chances of getting transportation up the river. These will be stranded at St. Michael without proper supplies of food, and unless aided by the Government they probably will starve. The Alaska Commercial Company cannot afford to deplete its stores at St. Michael to help these people whom It is warning to stay away, as all supplies will be needed for the Klondike. The steamer Cleveland, which runs between this point and the Sound, has been chartered by the North American Transportation and Trad ing Company to go to St. Michael and will sail to-morrow. She will stop nt Seattle for supplies and to take on hundreds of passengers already booked from that port for St. Michael. Tho company agrees to carry minors booked at Seattle to the Yukon, but those booked here are not certain they will reach St. Michael unless another steamer can be chartered at Seattle. Hundreds of prospective gold seekers are going on the Cleveland, and wbllo they mar reach the ' ' cold fields eventually, they are not likely to do 1 so by mean -of the Cleveland, for she will be 1 again placed on her run to the Sound just as I soon as she returns from St. Michael. I' There Is hope that should tho miners eventu- "- ally reach St. Michael this season before tho river freezes they may go up on n-.e of the new steamers that will be put on the Yukon soon by the Northwestern Trading Company. Two of these are on tbelr way there now from Seattle. Despite the lack of facilities by way of 'St. Michael, the rush goes on. and hundreds are going from this city with only slight prospects 1 of reaching the Yukon this season. Portland. Or., July 23. The Queen sailed this morning for Alaska with 413 passengers, 1 1(13 of whom were from Seattle and neighboring I places, bound for the gold fields of the Klondlko. The other 2S0 were Christian Endeuvorers, bent on pleas ro among the glaciers. Seattle, July 23. The departure of vessels .E from this port with gold seekers, while al- gm roost of daily occurrence, continues to attract n 9 thousands to the docks, and the crowd was 11 ' greater on the departure of the Queen this nl morning thnn on any previous occasion. It Is II announced this afternoon that the steamer Wll- JA lamette, one of the largest vessels on the coast, will be placed in the Alaska trade, and will be- H gin booking freight nnd passengers in a few IiH days. The Mexico is now at the Ocean dock re- cefving Alaska freight. She will sail Sunday with 175 passengers. MM Notable changes are being mado by many I who are taking the inland route. Dogs have HI been discardrd nnd horses substituted. In fH stead of waiting to whlpsaw lumber and con IH, struct boats for paBsage down the chain of H lakes, some are using boats s itahlo for the H purpose, theso having been put up in "knock tH down " stylo. Thus fire to ten days' time Is I saved. W hlto's Pass is also being selected In EH stead of Dyea Pass by reason of many advan JH tEcs possessed by it over the old route. KH The publlo press having repeatedly warned j the gold seekers of the necessity of going well Srovlsloned. nearly all tho hundreds who havo eparted aro supplied abundantly for eight to IH twelve months. It Is the purpose of the most IU experienced prospectors now leaving hero to IH avoid the Klondike and Us tributaries and to 'Wi devote their attention to.tho streams known to 1 he almost equally rich, but not so fully staked, Stewart Ither. with Its 400 miles of compara 1 tlvely iinprospected country. Is the objectlvo point of many. Up to the present, the greater 1 portion of tbnsn going to the Klondike have I been from Seattle and its vicinity, but the city I Is now filled with strangers from every section, 1 busily engaged In outfitting, nnd Seattle, nlways regarded as n busy city, never was so lively as now. TRANSIT TO THE KLONDIKE. Vaellttatrd by an Order making Djtm a Safe Port or Kntry. Wabiiinotox, July 23. One woman who has penetrated the Klondike region and has done her share of panning gold is Mrs. 'Wilson, the wife of an agent of tho Alaska Commercial Company, In on official report to Capt. C. F. Shoemaker, Chief of tbo Revenue Cutter scr vico, Capt. C, Li. Hooper, commanding the Dehr ing Sea patrol licet, mentions Mrs. Wilson, and gives some additional details about rich finds of the precious metal. Capt. Hooper's report is dated Unalaaka, July 5. He cays: H r "The steamer Excelsior arrived on the even- j W ingot the 4th from St. Michael, nnd leaves this evening for San Francisco. The Excelsior has on board about forty miners from the Yukon district and $300,000 In bullion. Sho brings wonderful accounts of rich discoveries In tho Klondike or Reindeer River, w here fortunes are being mado In a few woeks. According to theso reports, nothing hats over been discovered on the continent of Araerlco approaching it In richness. "Tho Klondike Is a tributary of the Yukon, a few miles from Korty Mile, nnd Is wholly within , Canadian territory.

Asa rosultot tho talk tho Secretary decided not to grant tho applica tion, but issued an order designating Dyea ns a sub-port of entry In the district of Alaska, which amounts to tho samo thing. If tho ap plication had been grnntod it would havo been necessary in all cases of vessels clearing for Dyoa to give a special permit to tho Deputy Col lector of Customs al Juneau for each vc'ssol.

New Mining negnlattons to De Considered by the Cabinet Monday. Ottawa, OnU. July 23. Clifford Slfton, Minister of tho Interior, made this statement to day with reference to tho rush to the gold mines of Yukon: " I think it only proper to say that any person who contemplates going into the Yukon terri tory should make very careful Inquiries as to the length of time it will tako to go and as to the means ho will bavo of sustaining himself after he gets there. The shortest time within which communication has been had with Fort Cudahy is six weeks, and that took place under the most favorable circumstances. The amount of provisions that can be taken into thnt country at the present moment is extremely limited, and if any consid erable number of people go In without making special provisions for their main tenance this fall, there Is very likely to be starvation during the coming win ter. One thing ought to be clearly understood, the Government cannot assume any respon sibility whatever for getting in provisions into that country to supply any people who may go In therein consequence of the gold excitement and who may find themselves short of food. The dlfilculty is largely one of transportation, and no means exist of overcoming this dlfilculty during the presont season." An informal meeting of thoCabinet took plaro to-day, at which the Klondike situation waa dis cussed. The question of making 'omc provision for the opening up of the Yukon country was considered. Strong representations had been received to tho effect that large quantities of United States goois were being landed and pushed through to British territory no duty had been paid. It was decided to order two customs officers from Victoria to establish stations on the other side of the snmmlt at the bead of tho Lynn Canal. Arrangements will also be mado to enable Canadian boats from Victoria to report at Juneau and tako up their loads to the head of the canal for transport through the passes. The strengthening of the police force on the frontier, the establishment and manning of ad ditional police posts, and the striking of a trail through Cnradlan territory between tho links in the chalil of communlc tlons between Ed mon and the Klondike were talked over, out no action will S taken until next Mondays meet ing of the Cabinet, at which alterations In the minting regulations will also be considered and adopted. NO KLONDIKE TOR HIM. Gold Enough There, He Bars, but Too Many Hardships to Sott III Taste. JoPLirr. Mo.. July 23. " Alaska has serious drawbacks at this time of the year, and people are foolish to go there before spring," said S. A. Turner, an engineer, who passed two years in the Yukon country and returned last fall. "No work can bo dono until May, and It will take a small fortuno to ltvo until prospecting can begin, and it would requiro very strong nerves to enable a man of small means to survive tho awful feeling of homesick ness that settles over one under tho conditions that exist In that bleak, desolate country. To be there through the long winter months Is bad enough, even when one has an abundance of food and good shelter, but to go In the condition In which many rash people are going, witn only small amounts of monev, is to go to a place, of Intenso suffering nnd great privations and perhaps to death. People do not seem to reallzo that everything there costs dearly. 1 paid $'JS for a single board large enough to make a sluice box two ) cars ago when there was n great rush to that region. Now everything will necessarily ho more expensive, for there will be greater demands for food, wearing apparel, shelter, tec. "At that time board was from $3.BO to $12 per day, according to conditions, and single meals were $ 2. The cold was intense, nnd many bad n struggle to sustain life. Of course, theru 1b gold therein abundance, but it takes bard and ex- JienBlve work to get it, and tbe fabulous stories oldof fortunes nnlting there to bo picked up are gross exaggerations." Mr. Turner went from Seattlo, Wash., with about 100 others to Clrclo City, Alaska. Tho Journey took sixty days, and was fraught with dangers and hardslilps. He prospected for two months and got out about SI. 700 in gold dust, and then docldcd to got back to civilization when the opportunity presented Itself. FLEAHANT J.V THE KLONDIKE. 80 Bays TTIlllam Davis. Who lias Itetnrned to Pennsylvania with Void Dun. Altoona, Pa., July 23. William Davis of this city has just returned from tbe Klondlko gold region with a comfortable sum, as the result of two years' work. To a SnN reporter to-day Davis said: " Ten miles above Juneau there is a pass In tho mountains thirteen miles long. Through this pass an easy Indian trail runs to tbo gold fields, making the whole distance to bo travelled by tho land route not more than 250 mles. Tho rigors of the climate in tho gold regions havo been exaggerated. I have been In Montana, nnd I can say truthfully that tho Klondlko win-, teris not more severe than that of lower Alaska. The honesty of the prospectors Is surprising. Locks nnd keys aro unknown in the region, nnd the latchstrlng Is always on tho outsldo. On the whole, the prospector Is as safe as if he were here in Pennsylvania." ARKANSAS HANK SUSPENDS. Instttntlsn at Mammoth Bprlnr In That Slate Forced lo Close lis Doors. Mammoth 8rnwr,B, Ark., July 23,-TbeBank of Mammoth Springs failed to open its doors for business this morning, and a notice posted on tbe front door reads'.

TriEBENfrAMTRUI ENDED. via case mat ao to Tax juttrnr MONDAl- NIOIIT. Batavla Peonle Think Ibe Defence Hade a Mistake In Mot Pulling Benham on the Rtand Rsperta In Hebnttal nad Snr-rte- batlnl Benhnm Lor-kln for Aeaultlat. Batavia, N, Y., July 23. This afternoon tho Benham murder trial was ended as far as tbe Introduction of evidence Is concomod. Court was then adjourned until Monday morning at (1:30 o'clock, when counsel will sum up and tho Court will charge tho jury. Justice Laughlln said thathedoslrcdosllttlo tlmo as posslblo to Intervene betweon tbo addresses of the counsel and his charge, so that It is possible the case will go to tho Jury by Monday night. "Yes," said Benham to the newspaper men, "I am glad it Is so near over. It has been a great strain for me to sit hero day by dny while mon coolly nrguo ns to whether I shall be killed or not. I look for an acaulttal or disagreement. I don't sco how any body of men can possibly convict mo on the little evtdonco left them by Dr. Wltthaus." Although tho testimony given by the celebrat ed New York toxlcologlst yesterday nullified tho weight of tho expert testimony, tho fact still remains that tho rest of tho people's proof Is dead against Benham. and but little effort seems to havo bocn made by tbo attorneys for the de, fonco to ex lain this away. It is the general opinion at Batavla that tbo defence has mad a mistnko in not permitting tho defendant to testify In his own behalf. If Benham is not guilty it is difficult to see how ho could convlot himself of n crime ho did not commit. He could at least deny that ho administered tho poison. Whilo ho might mako an unfavorable Impression on tho stand, many think It would prcjudlco his enso much less than tho cowardice evinced by his prcscut attitude. Evldenco In rebuttal and sur-rebuttal occu pied tho attention of tho court all day. Tho people at onco proceeded to attempt to counter act tho effect of Dr. Wltthaus's testimony, which fell llko a bomb in tholr camp. Dr. Wltthaus testified that tho first autopsy had re vealed no rigidity of tbo lower jaw. On this point Mrs. Davis, who was the first, witness sworn In tho people s caso, was recalled. Slio said sho was nt the Benham house on the night of Mrs. Bcnham's doath and was presont at tho tlmo tho undorvest was put on. "I noticed tho jaw," she said, "When tho vest was put on tho nankin dropped off and tho Jaw remained firm. Mrs. Pronlfco, Mrs. Ward, and Mrs. Benham were all present, and I drew their attention to tho fact." Mrs. Lulu Prentlcowas also recalled, and tes tified that her attention was called to tho condi tion of tho Jaw ns the vest was being put on, and It was firm, though tho napkin had dropped off. "Mrs. Davis spoko to mo about It," said tbo witness. . . . Mrs. Prentlco also testified as to tho soiled condition of tbe lied in which Mrs. Benham died. She was corroborated in this by Mrs. Mary Snyder, a new witness, who testified that sho wnshod the boddlng. During tho giving of this testimony Mrs. Benham becamo very much excited, as it llally contradicted her own evi dence on this point. She was with difficulty quieted by Mr. Mackey. The duf enco havo claimed t hat Benham bought the prusslc acid at Jeell's drug store with tho Intention of using It In treating a cer tain disease. Dr. Miller and Dr. Morso wore re called, and said that they had read of prusslo acid being use-din trenting tho disease in ques tion, but that It waa not generally or ordinarily prescribed by tho medical profession. When court convened In tho afternoon Dr. Frank Vnndcrberg or Buffalo took the stand. Grent curiosity was felt ns to what he would havo to say in reply to tbo severe handling which Prof. Wltthaus and Dr. Miller gave his evldenco yestcrd.iy. Tho Buffalo chemiit had been homo nil tbe forenoon verifying his tests and was nrlmcd for the ordeal. Regarding tho criticism made by Dr. Miller, that If he bad used In the nltro-priiBslno tent potassium nltrnt- In thu examination of tho viscera he would not havo got tho reaction claimed. Witness said that If be had said po tassium nitrate It uas a mistake, as bo had cer tainly used potassium nitrite. Tho formula In I'rof. Wltthaus's book on the subject, by a typo graphical error, was made to read, "potassium nitrite." Instead of "potassium nitrite." Witness said he had the references which frlvo potassium nitrite, and Imd used tho test ong before Prof. Wltthaus's book w.is published. Chemist Vnndcrberg deuiod that his apparatus for distillation Is not of tho proper kind, nnd also tho assertion of Dr. Miller that he conducted his exDerlmcnts with the viscera nt so high a tem perature as to render It possible by chemical de composition, the production of pruaslc acid from certain organs, the blood nnd saliva. When asked by Mr. Kenotllck about tho Prus sian bluo test, which Dr. Miller said was faulty because witness did not use hjdrochlorlc acid. Dr. VandTbergh said that Dr. Miller was justi fied In his statement If ho understood that hy drochloric acid was not used, ns the test without It Is valuoless. He had, however, used hydro chloric acid In the test, hnvlng added It to the other solutions, but might not have made this fact plain when ho was nn the Bland before. Mr. Soirlet asked witness If he did not think that tho presence of ammonium oxalate, mer curic cyanide, and other Ingredients which wero In tho embalming fluid woulo not interfere with tho tests. Chemist Vanderbergh did not think they would, but was not sure. The only witnesses called by the defence on the Bur-rebutt.il were Prof. Wltthaus and Dr. Miller. Both stated that tho preliminary exam ination conducted by Chemist Vnnderbergh to determine tho presence of tbe double cyanades wns absolutely valueless. At 3:20 both side rested and court adjourned. Mr. Mackey will sum up for tho defence on Mon day morning and District Attorney Leseur for the prosecution. G03IEZ CONCENTRATES HIS FORCES. Spaniards Protest to Gen.

Somo 0.000 insurgents are encamped in the hills of Mani caragua, near Sagua la Chlca, Santa Clara prov ince, under the Cuban loaders, Chucbo Mon teagudo, Caylto Alvarez, and Ramon Robau.

A commission of many uncompromising Spaniards called at the Captain-General's palaco to re monHtrato with cylor against the arrests re cently made In the cnpltal or eighty Spanish business men. One of the visitors said to Gen. We ler that It was a gravo mistake to treat tho loyalist Spaniards so badly when the enemy was so near. Weyler answered nngrlly, but he did not venture to tako nny steps against the com mission, ' Further arrests of Spaniards would produce n revolt among tho volunteers, who number 40.000 In Havana city.

Yesterday morning Mrs. McCarthy went to tho police station In Mulberry street nnd showed a summons from the Contro Street Court for hor husband to appear and nnswer for having threatened to tako hor life. A llttlo whllaago, sho said, Dollv had knocked out four of her front teoth. Ho had gono on n sprco with his wages for driving a contractor's sand cart. For a week ho had been threatening "to do" her and the baby. Thoy had not been homo sinco Saturday night. They stnrtod to go back on Monday, hut tho neighbors warned them to stay away, for Dolly was dr'nklng harder and harder I every dny, nnd wns publicly whettlngaantfo with which to kill them. Mrs. McCarthy asked that n, policeman bo sontwlth her to serve tho sum mons, for she was afraid that Dolly would kill her. To the pollco her foars seemed reasonable. On tholr blotters aro many entries beginning "John J. McCarthy. 38, Irish, laborer, 32 8prlng street," Thoy know that ho had been a member of the old Rubber Shoo gang of Elizabeth street. They know that twolve years ago, when ho hod been married Just a) car, McCarthy had killed an Itallnn with a butcher knlfo just back of Po lice Headquarters. Ho hod been sent to Sing Sing for that. Ho was rolcascd after claht years and enmo back to live on his wife's earnings as a dressmaker. In splto of tho homlcido episode, McCarthy's frlonrts nicknamed him "Dolly," liecauso, they sold, "ho was such an inner-cent child." Policeman Cavanagh was sent with Mrs. Mc Carthy to serve the summons. They found tho door of tho lint blocked from tho lnsldo. Cava nagh forced It. Dolly lay In a tumbled heap on a mattress In tho corner. All about him wero tho crockery nnd furnlturo and clothing ho hail smashed and torn to fragments In his week of drunkenness. "Cheer up, old sport," said Cavanagh, as ho kicked tho prostrato form lightly. Tho body rollcl over und tho pollccmnti saw a revolver besldo it and n bullet hole In Holly's ho id. " llo's dead," hu said in Mrs. McCarthy. "Thank God for that !" said the widow. They straightened out tho body. "I wonder will I got the Insurance," said tho woman, "now thnt he's killed hlssclfl He's been paying It these twelve ymrs, and If they do mo out ot It now It will bo a 6lnful Imposition on a poor widow womnn with a helpless child." Sho began to cry. "I wonder when ho was after doing It," sho said, nrtcr awhile. "Them geezers upstairs must havo heard him. They had n right to send for a priest. It's well known they nro no good nelghliors." Sho turned to C.tvnnngh with tho summons; there wns rising anger in her voice. "You may tako jour summons." sho said, "and go to hell with It." Cavanagh, who raw an nppllcatlon of her words iif which sho apparently was not con scious, hid a grin hv lifting a helmet In front of his face, and liacked out of the room. After tho undertaker sho Bent fnr had come and tho place had lieen made decent, folks began to come to ask questions about her husband. "Ho Is dead," bIic said to them. "Whatever ho has done, he will do no more. Let the dead be." August lAnge Fnds Ills Lire with Ijiudnnnm. August Lnnge died in the City Hospital at Newark yesterday morning from laudanum poi soning.

Under tho heading "Tho Jlngnos nt Tangier," El Impartial says: "McKlnloy undoubtedly wishes to emulato Emporor William's mania for startling tho din lomatlo world every week with his doings nnd projecta.

Not without reason did the German Emperor re contly say that tho eagerness of tho United States to Interfero In everything Is ono of tbo greatest dangers in the wny of universal peace. "Monroo worked America for the Americans; but his successors carry their ambition to Asia, Africa, Occanlcn, and all over the world. Just as tho low-born who, having become rich, use their millions moro to tho mortification of oth ers than to their own enjoyment, these vulgar tenders of cotton and bacon believe that they have tho right to strike wherever they please.

Thcro arc rumors of secret proceedings hero aiming at tho establishment of a republic In Spain as a means of averting the horrors of civil war in the event, now considered probable, of a final fniluro in Cuba, tho result of which would bo tho downfall of the monarchy. Hut It iuii"t not lo Inferred from this that the change would In nuy way benefit the causo of democ racy. The scheme, It appears, Is being formu lated by some of tho very men who during tho lat twenty-live j ears have monopolized power, and who. either liecauso they do not wish utter ly to lo-n their hold on affairs or because they nre reollv afraid of the udvent of new political elements intend to bring about the chnnge without a violent revolution and in such a innnner that tho reins of power will remain in their hand-. El I'uia, organ of tho Federal Ite publican party, says: "If what Is preparing were to ho carried out in good f.iltb, we would congratulate ourselves nnd the country. Hut Instead treason la con templated. Tho Monarchists are getting ready treacherously to Btab tho republic by bringing It In Ithout tho co-opcralion of tho Republi cans.

'Ibe Carllsts have again resumed their agita tion. At a meeting in the Traditionalist Circle vehement speeches were delivered by the.

Tbe latter said that the day Is fat approaching when the Spanish will hnve to taku heroic measures to sao tho country, hv re-cstabll-bing the empire of jus tice and morals under tbo rightful king. Cer tain Imprudent words which the newspapers attributed to Sefior Viizquezde Mdla gmcribo to tho rumor that tho Got eminent would adopt Mivore measures against thot'arlist propaganda, and thnt, if the f'arlbts pcr.i-ted in stirring up public opinion, their circles and casinos would be eloped. Wh.itcter the Cnrlist speakers may now my to their followers, there N no fear thnt Hon I'.irlos is iilsiut to take to arms. It I tni3 that thu lower classes of tho party oro Impa tient, but the leaders know well that Spain would never forglu Don Carlos the crime of taking advantage of .'-piiln's present troubles to ureas his claims to the throne, nnd so they pre fer to wait until nn opportunity presents itself which may, in the eyes of tho ubllc.

As far as one may conjecture, tho Carllsts would gladly sco tho Cuban liiturgcnts strlko a blow that would startle Spain and give Don Cailos n good pre ti't to raise Ills ting.
