Dyea the Sceae af It—One Pavlllst Breaks His Arm. A bloody prizefight took place In tke Everyone's Home hotel at Dyea between 12 and 1 o'clock last Friday morning shortly before the building was burned. The principal contest was between J. C. Carr and Billy Cooper. There had been bad blood between the two men for some time and a very hard contest was looked for. The crowd was large and waited patiently through the preliminary bouts. Honors were about even during the first and second rounds. Both men fought bard and received considerable punish ment. In the third round Cooper began to go and the calling of time was all that saved a knockout. In the fourth round Cooper struck a terrific blow at Carr's head, which the latter cleverly dodged. Cooper's arm struck him an ugly blow on the neck. His arm was broken from the force of the blow. This, of course, ended the fight. Cooper was turned over to the doctors. Tlt« REM.I E BALK IX PORT. !

THE SEATi'LK FOb'l-LNTfcLLIGE.NCtK. UfITBSDAY, MARCH 10, 1898. MA'S ID REGIONS. DISCUSSED IV THE IECETT RE PORT OP GEOLOGICAL SURVEY. Two Talaakle Pamphlets Jest Issoed by the Goverasaent Prlatlag Of- See Placer Deposits Dealt With Copies (or Dlstrlhatioa. WASHINGTON. March 9.—Two papers containing Important contributions on Jhe gold-bearing regions ef Alaska, the pub lication of which has been awaited with great Interest for nearly a year, have just been issued from the government printing office. They are advance chapters from part three of the eighteenth annua] re port of the director of the United States geoloKlca.l survey, not yet issued. The papers give the results of reconnoiasance examinations by survey experts, made in the summers of 1596 and IS%. or ehortly before the outbreak of the Klondike gold excisement. The paper entitled "A Re cor.noissance of the Gold Fields of South, em Alaska." a pamphlet of eighty-six pages of text and a number of maps and other illustrations, records the results of observations by George F. Becker in 1896. its publicstion having been delayed until thyi time mainly by reason of Dr. Beck er's absence during part of ISM while making a study of the gold deposits of the Transvaal. The report of J. E. Spurr, 392 pages of text, with maps and other illustrations, treats mainly of the valley of the Yukon, and is of more lnunedlate Interest at the present time, since, although the Klon dike region does not come within the lim its of his work, he recognized the prob able Importance of that region as a re sult of his studies of the district about Forty-Mile ar.d Arctic Citjr. within Amer ican territory. The report Is entitled "Ge ology of the Yukon District of Alaaka." by J. Edward Spurr, with an Introduc tory chapter on the history and condition of the district to 1 (&7, by Harold B. Good rich. Mr. Bpurr"s report la accompanied by geological maps of the mining district visited, and contains a full discussion of the manner In which placer deposits are formed. He effectually disposes of the statement made by the late director of the coast survey. Gen. Duffield. that the plac ers are of glacial origin, by showing that the region where they are found in great richness was never covered by the con tinental Ice sheet. Ths pnper will undoubtedly prove cf Kreat value in affording to those who may visit the region In the future a more cor rect understanding of the geological for mations prevailing there, and will be in great demand. Of each of these papers the geologic xl survey has about 1,200 copies for general distribution. If you would like to send a copy of the Weekly Post-Intelligencer to friends in the Eastern stat~* or Alaska, call today at the business office and leave a few ad dresses a* the rate of 5 cents a name. We will attend to the mailing. TOOK A COLD SHOWER BATH. A Xevr and Elderly PapU Stayed I nder It Nearly 111 Minute*. A gentleman about 60 years of age en tered a gymnas'um and iihv«'ca' euMur« school in Brooklyn the other day and an nounced his intention of becoming a pupil to "build himself up." After hard exer cise for an hour it is customary for ench pupil to take a warm or cold shower hath and then be rubbed down by an attendant with coarse towels, thus promoting the circulation of the blood and putting the blood In a healthy glow The shower bath Is In a small compartment, and a pupil enters and closes the door, manipulating the spigots to suit him*elf whi'p th at tendant waits outside until he is through. The elderly pupil was told after Ms first lesson that he had b r "tfr r*V i shower, and he entered the compartment and closed the door. The attendant waited for nearly fift en minute* ou wondered what the mm was doing, as he could hear :h-» cold water running, but no other sound. Finally, from the compartment, came the chattering query: "How long must I atav in this place? I'm fr^ealng." The new pupil was promptly rescued and resuscitated, and it was exolained him that It was not customary for a man to stay under the shower longer than two or three minutes on a ce>ld winter day.

Charles Fairhaaks Tried ta Rah Eastos, hat Was Kaoeked Of the Car aad Staaaed—Later aa Ofleer Got Hlah-Bogai Detective. A gang of expert pickpockets attempted to work in this city early last evening, w.th the result that the ringleader, Charles Fairbanks, a notorious criminal, recently released from the penitentiary at Stillwater, Minn., is in jail. A. J. Easton. ah elderly man, positively identifies him as the man who had his hand in his pocket on a Green lake car. The presence of reindeer at Wood land park drew a big crowd there yester day afternoon. The cars were crowded both ways. About o'clock last even ing A. J. Easton. while riding on the out side of a car on Pike street, discovered that Fairbanks had his hand in his (Easton's) trousers pocket, yuick as a flash Mr. Easton grabbed for Fa.rbanks' hand. Fairbanks wrenched himself loose and in so doing fell backward from the car to the pavement, partially stunned. Mr. Easton jumped otT the car and col lared Fairbanks, meanwhile calling for an officer. A crowd gathered and some pals of the accused tried to separate him from his accuser. Mr. Easton would not have it that way. Pretty soon up came a big, flashy fel low. who said that he was a detective and would take charge of Fairbanks. He did so. but Mr. Easton followed him down the street, and when Officer McClung appear ed in sight again, made a rush at Fair banks. The officer came up quickly and captured Fairbanks, while the "detec tive" disappeared. At police headquarters Fairbanks waa locked up. Mr. Easton said that he did not lose any money, as he caught on to what Fairbanks was up to. Mr. Easton is an elderly man. who is going north on the schooner Eisie. A Mr. Mcßarrett losrt >ls on the same car. but he could not identify the man who got the money. Detectives Cudihee, Meredith anii Bar bee went out looking for pickpockets la-ft night and arreated H. C. Bell, aged 41. who says he Is an engineer. He was booked on suspicion. It is thought that he is a mem ber of Fairbanks' gang.

Regretted Hln Client Had \ot Been Struck by a Trolley ('nr. A Brooklyn man who had th? misfor tune to break his arm by tripping over a curbstone ai;d falling upon the limb, con sulted a leading lawyer of that borough to see if he could not recover damages from the city for the accident. The lawyer heard the details and tli* n said: "I do not think that there is any law by which a man coukl recover darnag< s for not llftlnp his foot high enouch. In a recent case a contractor hid lifted a flagstone on the sidewalk and turned it over, leaving a hole where it had been originally, and a double thickness of stor.e where .'t rested. "A woman cime along, .stepped In the hole, fell, and brok -1 h-r log. She sued the contractor and received a verdict of Jl.flyO damages, but he appealed, and ine appellate court reversed the \ rdict on the ground that she should have look d where she stepped." Th client said that he thought the curb stone was too high, but ?lie lawyer replied that he did not know of any Taw that re;- ulatfd the height of a curbstone. Th n the man of law got warmed up to the sub ject and said; "Now, .f you had only been hit by a trolley car we could have got a good ver clct against the company. I have just recovered a verdict for a woman who had both leg* broken bv bfinsr run over by a trolley car. It is a pity that you were not hurt thit way." Then, as h bowed his astonished clien out of the office, he said: "Now. rem»mbtr, next time get hit ty a trolley car."

On his person were two drafts for S9OO each and $72.15 in cash. He died of consumption only a day before the big steamship left that was to take him to his old home in Hongkong. Chung Bow Hee was a merchant in New York city, and by economy and thrift ac cumulated enough money to keep him the remainder of his days. In his haste to get rich, however, he had fallen a victim to consumption, which wore him down to a mere shadow. Desiring to die in his na tive land, he collected all of his cash, which he deposited with a bank, receiving in lieu two drafts on the National Bank of China, each for SSOO. After paying for a ticket to the Flowerv t Kingdom he still had enough cash to pay all incidental expenses. He was accom- ' panied on his trip by his cousin, Chung Woy. They arrived in Seattle last Friday and took rooms at the Wa Chong block, on Fourth avenue south, .pending the sailing of the steamship Tenshln Maru. His health was falling rapidly, and he found it necessary to call a physician. He was told that he had consumption and could not hope to live Ling. Yesterday morning he was found dead. On his per son were the two drafts and $72.15 In cash. Coroner Yandell took charge of the re mains. which wore buried yesterday after noon from Butterworth'a undertaking rooms. United States Consul Ashby. who was drowned at Colon, was a member of the famous Ashby family of the Shenandoah Valley. His father. Gen. Turner Ashby, was esteemed by Jackson as the best offi cer in his army, and gave promise of ris ing to the highest honors in the service, t it he was killed in battle during the early days of the war. One of the daring feats of Gen. Ashby was the capture of Sir Percy Wyndham and his entire regi ment, which had been sent out, as Sir Percy somewhat boastfully declared, "for the express purpose of bagging Ashby."
