The mall route of which he has charge tfj, extends from Juneau to Circle City. Drauer Hkf"' 'uft Seattle with tho mall of July 8, went to Wtt Junoau, and left thero for tho Interior on the f .'ft 13th. Drauer said: "IIS " My partner, Fred Hoy t, accompanied me, and i when wo reached Dawson ho took the mall and mii proceeded to Circle Oltr, and later roturned to Juneau. I remained at Dawson until the end of B( ' August, when I went to Circle City to get the B.V1. mall.

I sUyed at Circle until Sept. 11, looking u'lia' for a steamboat, but it never camo. On tho day fliflv I left Circle City there was a severe snow storm i ;jJI and the thermometer went down below zero. I "When the storm came the river fell.

One boat came up from Fort Yukon with sev eral newspaper men aboard, among them being Correspondent Bam Wall and McOllvra. They brought news that the Hamilton had unloaded nil her cargo and tried to got over tho bar light and hod failed In her efforts, though she drew but two feot of water. This news Increased the oxcttomtnt nnd made tho rush toward tho food centres all the greater. " On Sept. 14, Dert Nelson of Seattle and my self loft Circle City nnd started to pole up the river to Dan son City, a distance of 300 miles. At the tlnio wo started from Clrclo City tho minors had about all made their departure. "It took us seven days and throe hours to make tho journoy. Capt, Hanson, with two In dians, who had left Fort Yukon, beat us Into Dawson by about an hour and a half, Hanson gathered the Dawson City miners together nnd made a short speech In which ho ad vlsod nil who did not havo provisions to last them all wlntor to get out of the country to civilization or try to reach points In the Yukon country whero It was known that food could bo found. " That night was the greatest In tho history of Dawson City. Hwub well known that Hun son spoke the truth when he said thnt tho companies had no provisions, and would ho unablo to got any boforo spring. Tho miners, as Boon as they heard tho nows from his lips, made hasty preparations to get out, nnd night fall saw theso gold seekeni and men who can to-day sell out for many thousands leaving by hundrods for down tho rlvor and up tho river. "The Uttlo steamor Klukuk. which was to make the trip from Dan son to Pol ly River, where Jack Dalton's trail starts. was brought into service. Sho was besieged by would-bo passongers who offered as high as $250 that they might be aboard while sho mado her Journeitof 17S miles to tho Pclly. Tho Klukuk left Dawson on the afternoon of Sept. 27 with twelvo or flfteon passengers. " The next day wo made up a party Including Horbert Raymond of Seattlo, Dert Nelson of Scattlo, Darry Robsrtson of San Fran cisco, and mysolf. Wo started up tho river in a small river boat, the inmo one w had used In going from Clrclo City to Daw son. We left Dawson about 2 P. M. and were soon on our way up the river. "Wbllo Jack Dalton left Dawson n couple of days later, tho situation there then was the same as It was when wo left, and I can tell you about that In very few words. The only thing you could possibly buy wan sugarbaking powder, spices, nnd somo dried fruit. No Hour, bacon, or any thing of that kind could bo purchased from any of tho stores, bocauso thoy did not hare them. Bo long as tho stores had any provisions prlcos ranged tho same. "I want to say that the stores treated tho men all right, nnd never advanced tho prices, although tbey wore Awnre of the shortage, and knew that thoy bad but to ask for high prices and recolvothciu." Tacoma. Nov. 28. Tho men who arrived to-day In the City of Soattleaaid that tho largest part of the supplies In the Klondike district wore owned by a comparatively small number of men. Some of the richest claim owners went toDaw son with sacks of gold, after their clean-ups were completed, and purchased a year's supply for as many men as they expected to employ working their mines. These supplies then In stock were set opart, rcn ainlug In trading companies' warehouses until the purchasers wantod them. Theso mine owners refuse to sell and will keep their supplies to work their mines this winter. Kxorbltant urlces bavo been asked at Dawson for all eatables since It becamo known that no supplies could got up river. Flour was bringing 8140 per cwt.. bacon 93 per pound, nnd other things In proportion. A meeting had been hold at which the food .qiiMUrta,,.wna thoroughly. canvassed - -and steps taken to ascertain how many men lacked supplies to carry them through tho wlntler. Thoso were notified that they would have to go to Fort Yukon or out overland. Many took boats and started for Fort Yukon. Others Intended going down on the leo aflor the river froze up. To-day's ar rivals say that probably 100 mouwlll come up the river to tho coast on tho ice. It cost Ferguson 82.500 to got out. no paid $100 for having himself and bis wife taken up the river thirty-five miles from Daw son, His wlfo then decided not to risk her llfo on the trail and was sent back to Dawson, whero she will live on one of their olelms tbls winter. Doth parties expe rienced extremely cold weather coming out, the thermometer going down to 20' below. Snow did not troublo them until they crossed the coast range. "Swift Water Dill " thinks that next spring's clean-up on the Klondike will yiold fifteen to twenty million dollars, and that the Canadian pollco will put the camp .on abort rations this winter. nro CZ.UBHXD oxn xizzsn.

Tames Sennedy, 23 yean, of BIO West Twenty-ninth street, a pris oner for disorderly conduct and assaulting offloeri was found sick In cell and was taken to Roosevelt Hospital) supposed fracture of the skull. This, which is perhaps an original way of re porting an assault upon a policeman. Is a police bulletin from tho West Tbirty-sorenth street station to Headquarters. There Is this to add to It: Kennedy Is dead. What happened, accord ing to Policeman Henry Woodlcy's statement la this: He was at the corner of Twenty-seventh street and Eleventh avenue yesterday morning when four young men took their stand near the corner and acted In a disorderly manner. They refused to move whoa orderod away, telling tbo policeman that they were out for a good tlnio and lntendod to have It, A few moments later as Woodley moved east down Twenty eighth street the four, somowbat under the Influence of liquor, canto down the street toward him. They utrotched them selves across the sidewalk arm In arm, shouting, singing and calling to persona In thu houses. When they nearrd Woodley ho halted them and saying It was Sunday morning ordered them to make less noise or he would arrest them. One of the four replied: "You go to hell, we own tbls ward. Then another, turning to tho rest, said: "Let's show him." With the words, John Riley, a driver, of 003 West Twenty-eighth street, started toward the policeman, lie was somewhat In advance of the other three and as he approached, Woodley struck out with his ftst, catching Itlley on the left eve. Then ho grabbed Riley and started toward Tenth avenuo with him. Just then James Kennedy of BIO West Twenty-ninth street made a lungeat Woooioy, and, with the assistance of the others, threw the Bolheroan and his prisoner to the sidewalk, lotting to bis feet Woodley drow his club and blew his whistle. llr this time quite a crowd hod collected, and putting Kennedy also under arrest tho police man tried to force bis way toward Tenth avenue with his prisoners. Kennedy drew back sud denly and struck tbo policeman on his aide. Woodluy bit him ono with the club on thu back of the iiead, and he wont down In a bene Policeman Powers In Tenth avenue had been notified by a car driver that "a cop was being done up" down the block, and ha started oft on the run, Policeman Tingley, In Eleventh avenuo, bad beard the whistle nnd started east. Dy the time they ui rived 100 or SOOpeoplo wero crowding around the policeman and Ula prisoners. At thenp- firoacb of assistance two of tho four in the orig nal gang mado their esonpe, leaving Kennedy and Riley In tbo centre of the crowd. A patrol wngon was called nnd the prisoners wrretakontotuestutlon house On tbo wuy tho wngon wus stoned by tho crowd. At the station liouso the wounds of both pris oners were dressed by Dr. MncSider, and itlley was removed to Itoosovclt Hospital to bu treated for scalp wounds Inflluted with a club.

Tho return to this city of Emperor Francis Joseph from Walseo, whero ho was visiting his daughter, has been Imme diately followed by two stop which have In , vlow tho ending of the Parliamentary pande monium and tho solving of tho Government doadlock. Tho first stop was tho publication this morning of on Imperial letter to Count Dadenl, tho Primo Minister, declaring the Rotchsrath adjourned. The second step was an announcement mado at U o'clock this afternoon from the steps of the Parllamont building, by Dr. Lucgcr, tho well-known Antl-Sonitte loader In tho Rclchsrath and Durgoruaster of Vienna, w ho shouted to tho crowd In front of the build ing: "Itadcnl has just glvon his resignation. Tho peoplo's will is fulfilled. " Tho pcoplo were Jubilant whon thoy heard of tho retirement of tho Prima Minister, nnd thoy govo vent to their toolings by waving their hats and Bhoutlng " Hochl" Dr. Lucgcr had nn audience with the Emperor, who told him of Count Dadcul's resignation and of his accept ance of It. Dr. Daron do Oautsch von Frankcntburn, at prosent Minister of Public Instruction and Eccle siastical Affairs, w ill sur.cr.od Count Dadenl. Tho nows of tho resignation of the Primo Min ister kept tho Hlngstrasso crowded until Into this evening, tho Socialist workmen and Ger man studenU rejoicing, boasting, and arguing. Instead of taking part In violently demonstra tive processions, with which the day began. When tho resignation bocamo known in Grntz, tho capital of Styrla, this evening, tho city was Immediately illuminated. In Vienna the morning brought a renewal of yesterday's turmoil. A crowd of students asscmhlod outsldo tho House of Detention, where Herr Wolff, tho refractory membor of tho Retchsrath, was confined, nnd shouted encour agement tohlm. .VtthoBamo tlmo a crowd of workmen gathered In front of tho Parliament building, shouting "Down with Dadenll" Tho polico charged both crowds, and In tbo m&lco that followed many porsons were Injured. Throe ambulances from tho Society for Succor of tho Wounded In Wnr Time wero kept busy In at tending to the Injured. Dy noon thero was a crowd of from 30,000 to 10,000 persona in the streets, who refused todls perse despite the fact that many arrests were mado. Eventually tho mounted police ana n regiment of Hussars swopt down upon tho crowd, BOiue of the members of which lied with all speed from benoath the hoofs of the advuno lng horses. Tbcro wero many band-to-hand fights botweon thoso who remained and tho pollco and soldiers. The foot police, howover, wore tho only officers who drew their sabres, with which they slashed right and loft Into the mob, many of which wore wounded. Chevalier von Abrahamovlcz, President of the Roicharatb, w hlle returning to his homo In his carriage, was recognized by tho mob. Iletrts Insulted and pelted with mud and stonos. Mat ter! remained in this threatening condition un til Dr. Lucger announced that Count Dadenl had resigned. Dr. Wolff was afterward liberated from tho Houso of Detention, but his prosecution has not been withdrawn. The Rclchsrath will he con voked shortly to vote on the Austria-Hungarian compromise and other urgent business. Daron Oautsch is now forming a provisional Cabinet, A definitive Ministry will be formed later. Daron Oautsoh Is of German nationality. HIb views aro moderate and conciliatory, and ho is popular. Tho audtenco that Count doluchowskl, the imperial Foreign Minister, bad with the Em peror yesterday is believed so have influ enced his Majesty's decision to accept the res ignation of Count Dadenl. Dad nows from the provinces and tho state of feeling in Vienna also helped him to the conclusion that It would be better for Count Dadenl to go. It Is now seen that Count Dadenl was mis takon In estimating tho effect of the promulga tion of the language decree. Ho was unwilling to recede from the position ho had taken, as by doing so he would merely have placed hlmsolt In antagonism to the Czechs Instead of the Ocrmans. Nobody Is sure of what the next dovelopraont in the situation will he. Tho most plausible view Is that tho Austria-Hungarian compro mise will be voted, and then nothing will stand In tho way of the dissolution of the Relchsrath. Tho Ministry of Austria proper, of which Count Cuslmir Dadenl was President and Min ister of tho Interior, came Into powor on Sept. 20,1803. The Count's nobility, In spita of his nrlstocratlc bearing, is of recent creation, as his father was mado a Count Just two years before his birtb. The title was at the time but nn empty honor, as tho nowly created peer had no fortune with which to maintain It in a fitting manner, and whon his two buns were born It looked ns If they would bo compelled to work for tbulr living. Fortunntoly tholr mother's brother, a Count Mier, had married the famous German actress, Anna Wlcrer.wbo took n great fancy tu her two nephews, and, being childless, bequeathed to them at her death her entire for tune, amounting to several million dollars, Uoth lads on attaining tholr majority entered political life, and it was tho elder of tho two who waaanpolnted by the Emperor to the difficult fiost of Prlinu Minister of Austria. Ho has bad he reputation of spending his fortune In a very open-handed manner, and his younger brother, who Is less genial, nnd Is said to ho almost penurious, has long been by far the richer man.

She dlod suddenly, and her death was given out as from yellow fover, but tho body was disin terred by the authorities, whose suspicions had bcon aroused, and an autopsy rovoalcd that she had been polsonud. Tho alleged Princess came to this country from Paris under contract to play the violin at thu Exposition and left here about two months ago.
