largest of All Gold Mines on Douglas
Island Will Be Vastly Augmented
When Present Plans Ave Carried
ThruRich New Ledges Besides
Those Already Traced Will Probably
Be Cut.
fcpscUl to The Journal,
Tanoma, Wash., Dec. 8.The pres
ent Treadwell mines on Douglas is
land, Alaska, will be dwarfed in mag
nitude by the same company's under
ground workings when the two miles
of tunnel now being started by order
of D. O. Mills are completed.
The mine is already famous as the
largest gold mine in the world. After
more than a year of civil engineering
work was started last week on the
tunnel which is intended to tap twenty
rich ledges in the Silver Bow basin
,near Juneau. The tunnel will be
nearly 12,000 feet long. With con
tinuous work it can be completed in
ight months.
The tunnel commences 600 feet
above tidewater on Gastineux chan
nel, and will pierce the mountains
with a gradual slope, giving water
drainage. Electric drills, compressed
nir fans and other modern equipment
will be used.
The boring of the tunnel follows a
recent acquisition by the Treadwell
company of a group of rich Silver Bow
basin mines on which the NowellB of
Juneau and Boston had already ex
pended $1,000,000. The mining en
gineers believe the tunnel will cut
many ledges besides those already
traced along the surfaoe. It is a case
of spending millions to produce many
more millions.
ITALIANS ARE WHIPPED
ATTACK A NATIVE TORT IX
SOMALILA1VD AND ARE WORST-
ED.
New York Sun Special Service. %-
London, Dec. 8.News comes from
Somaliland of a serious clash in that
disputed territory which may result
in grave complications between Great
Britain and Italy. A cablegram re
ceived at the war department from
Aden says that Lieutenant Commander
Charles Grabau, an Italian officer in
command of an armed dhow, landed a
large party of friendly natives at
Barbe in Somaliland and ordered the
commandant of the fort to hoist the
Italian flag. The commandant of the
garrison refused to obey, declaring
that unless he had express orders from
the sultan the Italian flag should never
wave over his fort.
The Italian officer thereupon sent a
haughty message announcing that in
two hours' time, if the Italian flag were
not hoisted, he would open fire on the
fort. Two hours passed and the com
mandant remained obdurate.
Grabau drew up his men and
ordered an attack. The rush of the
natives, who fired as they pressed for
ward, was met by a terrific volley from
the fort, which checked the advancing
force. Grabau and several of the
natives were killled.
Securing the body of their'fallen
leader, the attacking party fled and,
regaining their dhow, put to sea. Later
In the day they were picked up by
the Italian cruiser Galilee, which
landed the officer's body at Aden.
The conflicting olaims of the two
countries in Somaliland has for some
time threatened to bring about
strained relations and apprehension is
felt over the outcome of this affair at
Barbe.

WHITES CAUSED
INDIAN FIGHT
INDIAN AGENT SUBMITS OFFICIAL
REPORT.
.Wyoming Authorities Responsible for
Conflict in Which Six Were Killed
and Two Injured.
From the Journal Bureau, Colorado Building,
Washington.
. Washington, Dec. 8.Indian Com
missioner Jones has received a report
from Special Agent Charles S. Mc
Nichols of his office of an investiga
tion of the recent troubles between the
authorities in Wyoming and a number
of Indians from Pine Ridge reserva
tion. Mr. McNichols says he cannot
escape the conviction that the whites
were responsible for the fight which
resulted in the death of four Indians,
including a boy 12 years old, the
wounding of two other Indians, one a
woman, and the death of two whites,
including Sheriff Miller, In this he
sustains the earlier reports of Agent
Brennan, who went to the scene of
the fight immediately after it occurred
and whose report stated that the
trouble was precipitated by the Wyo
ming authorities. Mr. Nichols' report
says in part
The conflict between white citizens
of Wyoming and a band of Sioux In
dians from Pine Ridge reservation,
South Dakota, took place on Lightning
creek, in Converse county, Wyoming,
on Oct. 31, 1903. The whites were
headed by Sheriff William Miller of
Newcastle, Weston county, and seven
of the men were from that place,
something like 100 miles from the
scene of the conflict. Six men were
added to the party on the day of the
conflict, four of whom lived in Con
verse county and two strangers from
Wessington, S. D., on their way to
the Black Hills. The Indians were
two different parties from the Pine
Ridge reservation that had united a
day or two previous. - One was head
ed by an Indian named William
Brown, who had left the reservation
under a pass dated Sept. 30, 1903,
with fifteen Indiansmen, women and
children. The other was headed by
Charles Smith, an educated mixed
blood, alleged to be a graduate of Car
lisle school. His pass was dated Oct.
20 and was for thirteen people, in
cluding men, women and children.
The united band was composed of
sixteen male adult Indians, according
to Indian accounts and information
obtained at the agency, altho the
whites allege that they numbered
from twenty-two to twenty-five
bucks." They had with them fifteen
wagons and several extra ponies.
According to the testimony of a
majority of the whites, they saw the
Indian train coming down the high
way toward them. The Indians claim
that they were going into camp for
the night on the spot. The whites
allege that they saw in the dismount
ing Indians a proposition for fight,
and resolved to seek the protection of
the creek bank. They rode up the
creek to where the wire fence crossed
it. There they dismounted, leaving
their horses. They then crawled thru
the wire fence and took up a position
behind the creek bank. They allege
that Sheriff Miller and Mr. Owen
mounted the bank. All assert that
Miller shouted to the Indians three
times and Owen twice. One testified
that they said. "Halt, halt, halt." An
other said the words were: "Surren
der, surrender, surrender." Another
said the words were "Stop_" repeated.
Indians Were Scattered.
The Indian train was scattered along
up the road and only four wagons had
reached the immediate scene of the
conflict. All the Indians killed or
wounded were in or belonged to the
first four wagons except Black Kettle,
who came forward from further back
in the train. The whites express the
opinion that Black Kettle was the In
dian who fired the opening shot and
this was probably the case, if an In
dian did fire first. The Indians all
claim that the first firing came from
the whites and that the boy Peter
White Klk fell before there was a shot
fired by the Indians.
Certainly from the position of the
Indians, scattered along the highway,
they were not expecting a battle and
onlv a small part of their band was
yet'in the immediate scene of the con
flict when it began. Hence, if the 1\\*
dians were expecting and had pre
pared for a conflict, it would seem
very unlikelv that one of their num
ber would precipitate it, when their
party was so scattered. The whites
were in a compact mass, drawn up in
line behind a natural breastwork,
while the Indian train was scattered
for a quarter of a mile, with women
and children in the wagons to which
they belonged, all along the line. All
reason and common sense is against
the theory that the Indians began the
firing. _, ,
The sheriffs posse was no Sunday
school class. Cowboys and bartenders
predominated in the makeup of the
white party. Several of them were
entire strangers to the original party.
Sheriff Miller did not know whether
they were men of coolness, judgment
and steady character. Their recom
mendation was that they had guns and
were willing to join the party. They
had no wives and babies with them.
They were a compact body. They had
no wagons or other property with
them to lose. They had chosen their
ground.
T*^l 6CLS6 Cl -
^M^^ik^hSkiiM.
I found the public sentiment in
Newcastle strongly incensed against
the Indians, and very much worked
up over the death of their sheriff, who
was a popular official. They con
demned Agent Brennan in very strong
terms for having wired the commis
sioner of Indian affairs that he con
sidered the Indians were largely
blameless. I sought out some of the
leading citizens of the place but found
few of them willing to talk coolly of
the affair. Rome of the more con
servative told me that Sheriff ^Miller
did not want to go out with the party,
but there was a strong pressure
brought to bear and he had to defend
his reputation of being a brave and
fearless man.
The whole affair is very deplorable,
but I cannot feel but what small
blame should be attached to the In
dians. It is probable that had Smith
not refused to go with the posse to
Newcastle, bloodshed might have been
avoided but discretion and tact on
the part of the white posse would un
doubtedly have saved all trouble and
bloodshed.

LEFT HER A FORTUNE
New York, Dec. 8.Gilt-edged se
curities, with a market value of $783,-
000 have been taken from safety de
posit box by attorneys for the heirs
of Maximilian Herschel, an aged
recluse and former member of the
New York Stock Exchange, who died
in St. Luke's hospital last July. Nine
ty-three additional bonds bring the
value of the hoard up to $950,000.
Just before he died, Herschel an
nounced in the presence of witnesses
that he wished all his property to be
turned over to Mrs. William George
of Brooklyn, daughter of a couple who
had befriended him in his youth and
who had made his declining years
comfortable by numerous attentions,
not knowing of his great wealth. Mrs.
George attended him in his dying mo
ments, little dreaming that she was
heiress to $1,000,000.
Four relatives of the old man were
living in Germany, it was found, and
Mrs. George declared that the prop
erty should be equally divided, so far
as she was concerned. Attorneys for
both interests arranged this, and the
estate will be divided at the end of
six months into five equal parts. The
heirs living in Germany were unknown
to Herschel. They were found thru
advertising, but have proved their re
lationship, and Mrs. George evinced
no desire to keep them from sharing
her good fortune.

s in e way of Christma s

Berlin, Dec. 8.It became known
to-day that the leading dancer at the
Metropolitan theater, Fraulein Frieda
Boelke, was murdered at a hotel in
Cologne Dec. 2 by Ferdinand Bessier,
a manufacturer of machinery at Vichy,
France, who had several times been-a
nationalist candidate for member of
the chamber of deputies.
They were engaged to be married
and had dined together at the hotel
and quarreled in a private sitting
room because the woman had looked
too frequently, as Tessler thought, at
another man in the dining-room.
He first tried to chloroform the
dancer, but she was a strong woman
and pushed him off. Tessier then took
a hatchet which he had concealed
about him and struck the woman once
ineffectually and then stabbed her
fatally three times with a dagger. The
hotel people heard the struggle and
rushed to the spot, whereupon Tes
sier, with his back U the door, shot
and killed himself. Upon Tessier's
body were found a variety of weapons,
several sorts of poison and crosses and
amulets from Lourdes.
