RAILROAD COMMISSION GOES SOUTH
On the Spokane yesterday were
the Alaska railroad commission on
their way to Washington, where their
report will be tiled soon after Con
gress meets next month.
The commission Is composed of
.Major J. Morrow, United States army;
Ueut. Commander Cox, United
States navy; Dr. Alfred H. Brooks,
Secretary C. E. Williams, and J. P..
Mills, stenographer.
The commissioners visited HaineB
and examined that place as a possible i
terminus for a railroad to the Yukon. >
The results of their investigation will
not be made public until their report
is submitted to Congress. The com
mission has had a somewhat strenu
ous time. Prom Valdez they went
over the trail to Fairbanks, making
good time and experiencing no diffi
culty, their journey being aided by i
the Alaska road commision. They re-'
turned by way of the Chlthra trail to
Cordova, after examining the Copper I
Illvef railroad. Previously they had
visited Seward and looked over the
line of the Alaska Northern railway.
The report to be submitted by the
commission will be in the nature of a
preliminary reconnaissance, and with
out doubt beforo Congress will take
any definite action looking toward
railroad construction in Alaska, an
other and more complete Investiga
tion will be made.
MURDERS FOR M'NEILLS
Deputy Marshal S. Walto, assisted
by Chief of Police Jack Chovln and
E. C. Heacock, of Fairbanks, is taking
a trio of prisoners to the outside on
the Mariposa. Two of them are un
der life sentence for murder and tflll
be taken to McNeil's island, Washing
ton; the other is Billy Brown, am old
timer of Fairbanks, who is insane. He
will be taken to Mornlngside asylum,
Oregon.
The life prisoners are Joe Campbell
and a negro named Cooper. The lat
ter was convicted at a late term of
the district court at Fairbanks.
Joe Campbell was convicted at Idit
arod, in September, of murdering GuBt
and John Nelson, who were at the
time prospecting about seventy miles
below Georgetown, on the Kuskokwlm
river. The crime was committed
sometime in September 1911 and ,the
dead bodies were found by natives
about a month later.
The coroner's inqueBt, which waB
held over the bodies Incurred an ex
pense of several thousand dollars. A
deputy traveled all the way from
Georgetown and summoned witnesses,
many of whom had to travel hundreds
of miles. No action was taken in the
matter until a strong petition from the
district had asked for the inquest.
In the meantime Campbell had gone
overland to the Coast and taken a
steamer for Seattle. Campbell spent
the winter in the Sound metropolis
and last spring came north headed for
the new strike at Ruby.
It is said that Campbell only had
three dollars when he left Seattle
and that A1 Lowe, the well-known
Nomeite, unsuspectingly helped him
financially to reach his destination.
In the meantime evidence had been
found incriminating Campbell, and
Deputy Marshal Joe Warren was set
on his trail. He followed his man to
Seattle, but arrived too late. Tele
graphic instructions were sent to
Deputy Marshal Snow at Ruby and
Campbell was placed under arrest
last June. His trial and conviction
followed.
The negro Cooper was convicted
of the murder of William WImbish,
also a negro, on Pedro creek two years
ago. WImbish disappeared without
reason and many searching parties
failed to And any trace of him. He
had lived with Cooper in the Pedro
creek cabin f?r many months.
At the time of the disappearance
Cooper stated that WImbish had gone
to the Koyukuk diggings. Later
Cooper made other inconsistent state
incuts bearing on the disappearance <
which directed suspicion toward him.
Finally a search of the premises on
Pedro creek disclosed remnants of
the charred bones of the victim.
Cooper was placed under arrest and
the chain of evidence resulted in his
conviction.
