TACOMA. I>ee. 3V—The finale in quite a
little domestic frinfiance came to light here
yesterday, when a glance at the record of
marriage licenses disclosed that E. A. Tay
lor. a merchant of Seattle, had secured a
license to wed Henrietta A. Taylor. The
story that Mr. and Mrs. Taylor sev

the d.ite of the issuance of the license,
lived apart. Some happy combination of
circumstances recently brought the for
mer husband and wife near to each other,
the oid score was discussed and amicably
settled, and the couple were, remarried.
The license to wed was issued late Sat

WASHINGTON*. Dec. ».-Prof. Thomas
S. Lippy, formerly secretary of the Y. M.
C. A. at Seattle, which position he resigned
over a year ag:> to go to Alaska, where he
now has one of the richest claims Sn the
Klondike region. baa been In Washington
with his wife durfbg the past week on a
sight-seeing tcui He is very reticent con
cerning the val Ji of his claim or how much
money he brought out of it, but since he
baa been in the East, he has received an of
fer from a company of capitalists of 0.W0,-
for hi» mining interest, which he has re
fused. As for the amount of money he
brought out from the Klondike, it is cer
tain that tt was sufficient to enable him to
make an extended trip throughout the
United S'ates. which will end with his re
turn to Seattle and eventually to the Yu
kon next summer. He has completed a
tour of all the principal cities of the
North, and when he leaves W ishlngton he
proposes to spend some considerable time
during the winter in each o? the important
cities throughout the Southern states.
Secretary of War Alger, who loses no op
portunity to investigate the situation in th©
Yukon valley, learned of Prof. Lippy's
presence in the city and requested a per
aonal interview. Prof. Lippy was accom
panied to the war department by William
H. Lewi*, of Seattle, who has been making
his headquarters in Washington for some
weeks past. Both the Seattle men agreed
that they did not furnisn Secretary Aigtr
with any great amount of Information that
he had not already acquired. The secre
tary's knowledge of the situation in the
Yukon & very extensive. He is ardently in
favor of the government appropriating a
sufficient sum and authorizing the ust of
warships to transport provisions to Alaska.
He has a well-defined plan for taking pro
visions to Dawson over the Dalton trail.
He believes that the problem can be solved
bv the employment of no less than 500
reindeer, distributed at stations not over
fifty miles apart along the entire route.
While horses and dogs would eat all they
c«:uld possibly carry on such a trip, it is
asserted by every one familiar with the
habits of the r-indeer that these intelligent
and docile animals would readily obtain
their food from beneath the snows, and
that there is a sufficient growth of reindeer
moss along the proposed route to furnisii
food for that number of reindeer through
out the entire winter. The secretary has
become convinced from various statements
that have been made to him regarding the
ucnount of provisions in Dawson that there
will be no suffering there before Febru
ary or March, and by that time he hopes
to have his reindeer line in operation and
to land between two and three tons of
provisions in Dawson every day. This,
with the amount already there, ho thinks,
will be sufficient to avert a famine or any
Krcat amount of suffering.
Senator Wilson has introduced a bill to
divide the state of Washington into two
judicial districts. The features of this bill
were outlined in this correspondence prior
to the commencement of the session. In
brief, it places the business of Eastern
Washington in one district and of Puget
sound and Western Washington in the
other. While the growth of the state war
rants the additional judicial district, it is
believed that the saving in mileage and
traveling expenses of the various court offi
cers will almost, if not quite, pay for the
additional salaries provided for in this bill.
Senator Wilson also Introduced a bill,
which was referred to the committee on
public lands, setting aside a portion of the
Pacific forest reserve which includes
Mount Rainier, as a public park, to be
known as the Washington national park.
This bill is. in effect, the same measure
that was pending in the Fifty-fourth con
gress, but which failed for want of time
to become a law. In the house, in the last
congress, the bill wis never reported from
the committee on public lands.
A bill opening to settlement ths Gig Har
bor and MiiviHe military reservations on
Puget sound is now pending before the sen
ate committee on military affairs. Settlers
have taken up lands upon these reserva
tions, but have not been able in the past
to agree as to the manner in which these
reservations should be opened. It is Quite
likely now that tlie government, should
congress decide to open them tor sale, will
dispose of the land to the highest bidder.
The senate committee on public lands has
under consideration a resolution, which
undoubtedly will be passed, calling upon
the secretary of the interior to send to the
senate a full and complete report of the
operations of the geological survey in
carrying out the provisions of that portion
of tne last sundry civil bill providing for
the survey of the forestry reserves desig
nated by the proclamation of President
Cleveland. The object of this resolution is
to get before the sen tt: all the evidence that
has been obtained during tlie past summer
regarding the forest reserves, and to enable
congress in the next sundry civil bill. If it
so chooses, to modify the boundaries of the
var.ous forest reserves and see that only
those sections where it is actually neces
sary to protect timber trum destruction be
included In the reserves. That the size of
settle of these reserves will be consider
ably lessened appears to be a ioregone con

Secretary Al*er Actively Arranging
Details of the Expedition.
WASHINGTON. Dec. 3D.—Secretary
Alger today cabled to William A. Kjclt
man, chief government reindeer herder,
who is now in Aiten, Norway, to inform
the war department immediately how soon
WJU reindeer can be shipped to this coun
try. These are wanted for use as draft
animals in getting supplies to miners in
the Klondike region, it is expected that
they must be transferred at New York to
railroads, and in that manner carried
across the continent, and again by sea
from the Pacitic coast up to Dyea or some
other point that may be selected as a base
of operations.
Secretary Alger has determined, after
advising with the medical officers of the
war department and persons who have had
much experience in the Arctic regions, to
make a large use of condensed food prepa
rations. Not only will meats be in the most
concentrated form, but particular efforts
are being made to secure condensed prepa
rations of vegetables, such as potatoes and

the British government to request of the

The McArthur to Chart the Ea
trances aad the River Itself.
OAKLAND, Cal.. Dec. 20.-The United
Status coast and geodetic survey ship Mo-
Arthur has been ordered Into Alaskan
waters, and with the opening of spring will
head for the Yukon river, there to remain
until a series of important surveys have
been accomplished and a thorough study
of the country made. The McArthur lies
on the ways at the Hay & Wright ship
yards receiving repairs, but will soon b« in
readiness for active service.
Capt. I. W. Helms, in charge of the ship,
under instructions from the navy depart
ment at Washington has secured bids for
towing a small stern-wheel steamer to ths
mouth of the Yukon to aid in the surveying
work and to serve for the navigation of
rivers too shallow for the McArthur.
The McArthur will work up the Alaskan
coast, taking observations, until the mouth
of the Yukon is reached. Then the stern
wheeler will be brought Into use and the
crew and officers will go up the Yukon as
far as possible, carefully surveying the
country and making charts for a new gov
ernment map of the district.
The Vessel Purchased for the Trip

PHILADELPHIA. Dee. 20.-The brig re
ported yesterday as bavin* gone ashor#
on Cross ledse, Delaware bay, proves to
be the H. H. Wright, which left Port

EVERETT. Dec. 30.—A suit was * mi

by F. H. Mulford. plaintiff, against W. F.
Brown, defendant, to recovt r
which amount , . A.; ntif? all 'ges ho ha~ K>st
through fraud committed ay dexendant.
The plaintiffs attorreys are S 11 Piles, -»f
Seattle, and Coleman and Hart and F. 11.
BrowneX of Everett.
The amount involved, the character of
the claim, the s* tndlng of the principals
and the legal taint employed, will make
it a case wlt'cli w*. attract attention
throughout the Pacific coast states.
The complaint tii< that on August 15.
MM. George Hull. G arge E. Van-tter and
J. W. Mollique located the Sarah mine.
That on November 2a. IV2. Hall ard Mol

undivided interest. That on M ir*h 7. Im>3.
Vanetur conveyed a one-third undivided
interest to plaintiff. That in the years ivtf
and ISM plaintiff alone paid for the assess
ment work required by law to be per
formed. That in l x >3. the defendant
Indebted to plaintiff. apr< ed to perform
the assessment work. That during the
summer of that year defendant spent mast
of the time on and in the vicinity of the
mine. That defendant represented to
plaintiff that full assessment work had
been performed, when iu fact only a ;>art
had been done.
Complainant further aliases that it was
at this time that defendant discovered the
great value <*f the mine and purposely,
with the intent of defrauding plaintiff, al
lowed the mine to become subject to re
entry*. That defendant, after the time had
elapsed in which the assessment work
should have been performed, induced one
H. P. Andrus. of Seattle, to file on the
claim under the name of the Magus. It
Is further alleged that defendant, for the
purpose of defrauding plaintiff, during the
years 1S;«S ar.d ISL'7 caused the 45 Mining
Company, the ST> Mining Company and the
45 Consolidated Mining Company to be or
ganised. the latter company absorbing the
property which was first located as the
Sarah and subsequently, by Andrus as the
Magus min-a. That during all this time
the defendant has held a majority inter
est In the property.
Complainant further alleges that defend
ant caused Andrus to convey his interest
In the Magus to the 45 Mining Company
and caused this company to convey to the
95 Mining Company, and this latter named
company to convey to the 45 Consolidated
Mining Company.
The 45 mine Is not In any manner at
tacked in the complaint, and is only
named because it was in connection wPh
this mine that fraud is claimed, and judg
ment is asked against W. F. Brown and
not against the mine.
