SEATTLE COUPLE
PERISH IN NORTH
DAWSON. Y. T., .March 23.-Evi
dences have been found that Mr. and
.Mrs. Schmidt, formerly of Seattle,
later of Dawson, perished somewhere
on the Russell glacier, at the head of
White river.
The old couple left here three win
ters ago. The last seen of them was
when they left a camp of copper pros
pectors at the North Fork Island, on
the head of the White, and now James
Kingston, who has just returned from
that vicinity, brings word that a roll
of blankets and a rifle, supposed to
have belonged ot the Schmidts, were
found last full on Russell glacier.
Bob. Wiley, extensive holder of
claims on the upper White, found the
rifle and the blankets while on his
way out. The story did not get into
general circulation, it seems, at the
time of the finding. .Mr. Kingston
says that from what he could hear at
North Fork Lsland, on the White,
this months Wiley came across the
rifle and the blankets about the mid-1
die of the glacier.
Day's Work For Musher.
Russell glacier is many miles in'
length, and it requires an entire day
for a good musher to come from the
White river to the Copper river side.
Wiley, it is understood, could find no
other stray articles or signs of hu
man beings having been in the vic
inity, but felt confident the blankets
and rifle were the same as the
Schmidts had. The blankets lyid
been exposed so long that they were
practically worthless and were left!
on the glacier. The rifle was picked
up and carried back to North Fork:
Island. Those who have seen it say!
it is similar to the one Schmidt car
ried on leaving there with his wife
to cross the glacier.
Left Three Years Ago.
.Mr. and Mrs. Scmidt lived in Daw
son for years. Mrs. Schmidt became
well known here in a long spactacu
lar tight which she made against the
Yukon Gold company running a flume
over a quartz claim which she held
on the hill near the slide back of
Dawson. She and her husband left
1 here three years ago for the head of
J the White with a horse drawing a sin
j gle sleigh. They were a long time
making the head of the river, and on
; arrival there had no food or supplies.
The miners advised them of the
great danger of crossing at that time
I of the year. The old couple insisted
on crossing, and pushed ahead alone.
It is feared by the prospectors of the
district that they lost their way on
the glacier, laid down their blankets,
and gun to reconnoiter, and wandered
into a crevasse and perished.
Mr. and Mrs. Schmidt left two
daughters who are Catholic Sisters,
and who have made inquiries at var
ious times for traces of their parents
since leaving the White, but hitherto
without success.
Daughters Keep Up Search.
Two daughters of the couple, both
j Sisters of Charity of the House of
Providence, one stationed at Olympla
and the other stationed at Walla Wal
a, ua.c kept up a devoted search
for the lost couple ever since it was
first learned that they were missing,
writing to all their friends in Alaska
and following every story that has
come to them in the hope of finding
that they had not been lost after all.
ICELANDERS HERE
WITH FAMILIES
Nineteen Icelanders, who wish to
live in a country where profitable ag
riculture and sea fishing can be com
bined, are at present in the city on
their way to Graham Island, and it
would seem that they are on the eve
of reaching the promised land.
They reached here by the Princess
Mary, and hail from an Icelandic set
tlement that for fully thirty years
has been established on the shores of
Lake Winnepeg. From what they
have seen of British Columbia they
are greatly taken with the general
prospects. They have spent the last,
few days in visiting the various parts
of this townsite, and one of the most
interesting points seen was Seal Cove
where the big fish and cold storage
plant is established. Mr. Davidson,
proprietor of the Peerless Studio, is
himself an Icelander, and to the new
comers he has been a veritable mine
of information, and he expects to ac
company them to Masset by the next
boat.
The party consists of men of whom
quite a few are married, and .if they
decide to settle on the Islands, and
from present indications they will do
so. the families will be sent for. The
men are fine, hardy, and industrious
looking and will certainly be an im
portant acquisition to the Islands. In
fact, this party will be but the fore
runners of others. Capt. Steffanson,
the famous Arctic explorer, comes
from this same Icelandic colony, and
? the captain is " some punkins."?

PREPARING FOR SPRING.
In line with the general spruc
ing up for the spring season that ev
erywhere is in evidence, a modern
bootblack stand has been erected by
the Occidental hotel near the en
trance to that hostelry.
Alaska Makes
New Record
While London suffragettes fight like
savages in that mother country of
constitutional rights for enfranchise
ment of women, and succeed not;
while the Eastern American states
deny the boon to woman; while row
dies in Washington D. C. insult and
almost mob the fair -ones who no
more than march the streets in their I
orderly campaign work; while thej
more progressive western states have j
given suffrage to woman after hard
campaigns, it remains for the most
western outpost of English civiliza
tion, Alaska, to grant the gift to wo
men, even before she asked for it.
Representative Shoup, the father of
the Alaska bill, has won himself en
during fame in the cause of represen
tative government, and has achieved
for Alaska the distinction of the
speediest and least contentious vic
tory ever recorded in connection with
the great issue. Truly, it seems that
the claim that progress belongs to
the West and that the youngest shall
lead is established by precept. The
wave of reform in democracy is
sweeping from the westernmost bor
der of the Anglo-Saxon world east
ward, and Runnymede, which gave
the first representative rights to men
may be the last to extend them to wo
men.
Representative Shoup did not act
on impulse. He had sound reasons
for bringing in his bill, and the chief
of these was the one that clinched
the cause with others of the house
and senate. The clincher was that
Alaska must recognize the importance
of woman in making Alaska a plac*
of permanent home-building. The
Alaskan legislators are willing to give
women an equal chance in starting
in the Northland. There is no reason
she should not have it. It is no small
matter for women to sever all her
attachments to the land of her birth
and to come so far to develop a re
gion which is to be counted as yet
the frontier.
Alaska, in leading off with the
extension of the franchise to woman
in her first session, wins signnl dis
tinction throughout the world. Al
aska is extending to woman what in
evitably will be secured by her be
fore long in all civilized countries.
The half-observant reader of public
[ prints can see the movement coming
with landslide sweeps and certainty.
It will succeed throughout the civil
ized nations because of the broad
principle involved. The victory of
woman will be complete on this con
tinent and throughout Europe in on
ly a few years. Why then- should the
virile young territories of Alaskan
and the Yukon make a painful and
aggravating job of the inevitable?
Rather let the two territories beat
the other countries to the goal.?

YUKON EXPORTING
ICE AND FERTILIZER
Were it not for Whitehorse and the
remainder oC Southern Yukon, the
town of Skagway which is poetical on
ly in the fact that she is washed by
the rythmic surf, would be in a bad
way. Only two weeks ago a train
load of ice was shipped to Skagway
from Yukon and this week a train
load of fertilizer was shipped there
from this place. We are not certaiu
whether the latter is to be used for
packing her water pipes or for use
on her experimental forms. If we
have anything else Skagway needs
to make her happy, she is welcome
to it.?Whitehorse Star.
SENATOR JONES PROPOS
ES INTERITANCE TAX
An inheritance tax that would run
as high as 50 per cent, on fortunes
more than $15,000,000 has been pro
posed in a bill introduced in the Sen
ate by Senator Jones of Washington.
The measure would impose an inher
itance tax on all estates where the
bequest is to members of the immed
iate family, in which case there would
be an exemption of $25,000 and a re
duced tax rate.
The general inheritance tax pro
posed is as follows;
On estates less than $5,000, 1 per
cent.; from $5,000 to $50,000, 2 per
cent; from $50,000 to $250,000 5 per
cent; from $250,000 to $750,000 10
per cent; from $750,000 to $1,500,000,
15 per cent.; from $1,500,000 to $3,
000,000, 20 per cent; from $3,000,000
to $7,000,000, 25 per cent; from $7,
000,000 to $15,000,000 40 per cent.;
above $15,000,000, 50 per cent
No constitutional amendment
would be necessary to impose an in
heritance tax.
In the House a similar bill has been
introduced by Representative La Fol
lette. of Washington.
LOW TELEGRAPH TOLLS
FOR NEBRASKA
The Nebraska legislature has
passed and Gov. Morehead of that
state has signed a bill making 26
cents the maximum toll that can be
charged on a telegraph message of
10 words from one section of that
state to another.

been tied up since last fell. Accom
panying Captain Harrington is ('apt.
W. T. Bragg, who will ship as pilot

hesitate in saying that there will he
some lively rate cutting 011 his part?
that he proposes to make a rate of
just one-hulf 011 anything and every- '
thing charged by the White Pass
steamers.
It is expected that the Evelyn will
be 011 the upper Yuokon by the time
the ice is out of Lake I.charge as
it is usually gone from the lower riv
er three weeks before the lake breaks
up. |
Captain Barrington spent the win
ter in Southern California and Mexi

my constituents or in the newspapers"
