ALASKAN'S DIARY
TELLS SAD STORY
FAIRBANKS, Alaska, Aug. 1. ? In
numerable diaries of Alaskans in dis
tress have told tales of great hard
ships, suffering and want, but seldom
has one of them told a more pathotlc
story than that of C. F. Sexton, found
in hla belongings by his son on the
Koyukuk river, whore the son went
to bury his deceased parent The diary
tells graphically the story of the pros
pector's death, and portrays plainly
the agony which he must have suffer
ed during the last hours.
In a letter received by Marshal Er
win from his deputy at Nulato, the
history of the case is recited as fol
lows:
"In the matter of C. F. Sexton's
death, which occurred on tho Koyukuk
river, Mr. Sexton kept a diary, and en
tries show that he died May 24 of
rheumatism and stomach trouble.
"Tho following aro some of the en
tries made:
" 'Wednesday, the 13th.?Very sick,
faint, no ability to do much. Ico
broken, but not moving.
" 'Friday, the 15th.?Fighting and
praying for dear life: awfully sick,
if the ice would only clear, God help
me.
" 'Sunday, May 17th. ? Awful sick,
can't suffer much more, almost gone
God help. Afraid inflammation.
" 'May 21st.?River open, can't reach
my boat, too sick; stomach.
"'May 24th.?Alive, starving, water,
going for it, last effort."
" 'CHARLIE."
"C. H. Sexton, son of the deceased,
arrived here from Seattle June 26, and
immediately started to where the body
was supposed to be, returning with the
body July 9, which was buried at this
place on arrival.
"C. H. Sexton took charge of all per
sonal effects."
CONDITIONS RIPE TO
SAVE KARLUK CREW
NOME. Alaska, Aug. 25.?The crew
of the gasoline schooner Hattle B.,
which arrived today from the Arctic
coast of Siberia, reported that ice
conditions now are most favorable to
the rescue of the 21 men and one wo
man who have been marooned on
Wrangell island since the Stefansson
exploring ship Karluk was wrecked
in the Arctic ice last winter.
The captain of the schooner said
he endeavored to reach Wrangell is
land and would have done so had not
his gasoline supply became so deplet
ed when his boat was 100 miles from
the island that it was necessary to
turn about and run for Nome.
HOMESTEADERS GO TO
KNIK FOR FARMS
SEATTLE. Aug. 25.?Attracted by
the cheap land in Alaska and the be
lief that in a few years that Territory
will be able to supply farm produce
to the Pacific Coast States as well as
Interior Alaska, which with the build
ing of the government railway will be
open to the coast winter and summer,
a party of homesteaders has departed
from Seattlo for Knik, on Cook Inlet,
to take up land.
While no official notice has been
given. It Is generally conceded by all
i Alaskans that the government road
will run around the head of Knik Arm
and thence up the Susitna river. The
determination of the homesteaders to
settle near Knik, therefore, it is
thought, will place them on the line
of the new railway. The party consists
of W. C. Jenks, wife and three child
ren; Issac Bennett and E. R. Allen, all
of whom are prepared to make their
homes on farms in the North.
DEMOCRATIC CLUB ORGANIZED.
A good big bunch of Democrats got
together last night at the Council
Chambers and organised the Ketchi
kan Democratic Club. Chas. H. Cos
grove was unanimously elected presi
dent and F. E. Ryus, secretary, the
office of vice-president was not filled,
being left open until a later date. The
President after organization had been
perfected and when ho assumed the
duties of his office, made a very inter
esting talk on the purpose of the club,
which was enthusiastly received. The
Club will meet the second and fourth
Wednesdays of each month.?Ketchi
kan Miner.
PREDICTS RUSH TO NORTH.
"Seattle will see a great rush of
people to Alaska as soon as the gov
ernment has made a final selection
of the railroad route," said A. W.
Swanitz, chief engineer of the Alaska
Northern Railroad, yesterday. "The
vast number of Inquiries coming from
all points show that tho people at
large are taking genuine interest in
that section of Alaska."?Seattle Sun.

SAMPSON WRECK
MAKES SOME HEROES
Again Bailors of the Pacific have rea
non to be proud. The record of the
crewB of the sunkon steamship Ad
miral Sampson and tho damaged
steamship Princess Victoria is clem,
despite the trying circumstances of
tho awful accident of early yesterday
morning.
The passengers on the wrecked lin
er have reason to feel proud. Judging
by tho accounts of survivors, tho men,
and women who were called from
sleep and compelled to quit their ship
in a brief six minutes behaved with
extraordinary presence of mind.
The women and children went first.
"After they got up the ladder/'
said one of the survivors, "an officer
shouted, 'Everybody for himself,
boys.' We certainly had to hustle."
Capt. Moore, of the Sampson, gave
his life to save those in his care.
What finer epitaph can bo written of
any man? Nor should Capt. Hickey,
of the Victoria, be forgotten. He held
his ship in tho breach it had torn, and
only by that act did he keep the
wrocked vessel afloat and avert a
terrible loss of life.
The last soen of Chief Engineer
Noon, of the Sampson, ho was leaping
from the deck of the sinking ship
with a woman in his arms.
If tho Admiral Sampson was a ship
tho size of the Titanic, the world
would ring with the heroism of her
crew and her passengers and praise
the cool-headed work of those on tho
vessel which struck her. Yet tho
quality of their bravery could bo no
finer than that displayed yesterday
morning.
Discipline and calm courage in the
face of denth?than this there is no
greater heroism.
A brief four-word phrase haB come
to mean much to us. It is the epitaph
of those who perished:
"Women and children first"
WHITEHORSE MURDER CASE

SAILORS MAKE MONEY
PANNING OUT BALLAST
SEATTLE, Aug. 21.?Staging a min
ing camp scene In her forward hold
whero members of the crew worked
hard panning out gold from fifty tons
of Nome Beach sand carried as bal
last, the Pacific Coast Steamship
Company's freighter Eureka, CapL J.
O. Farla, made port from Bering Sea
yesterday. The sailors spent most of <
their spare time on the voyage south
panning the ballast sand and by the [
time the ship docked, each had 86 to !
$7 In gold. All tho men at some time ;
or another had mined on the Nome i
Beach. Only part of the sand was |
panned. It will be thrown overboard.
?Seattle Times.
THE OLD AND NEW WORLD.
Perhaps some of European critics
?the Spectator among them?will now
be able to see some merit in President
Wilson's Mexican policy. At least we ]
are not at war with any one, and but
for the folly of emperors and kings
would be on the high road to prosper
ity. Wo think that the "Idealist" has
shown more practical sense than the
very practical statesmen who have
dragged Europe into war.
Tho contrast between the old and
new worlds Is striking, and most cred
itable to the new. We are working out I
the Mexican problem with the utmost
patience, and with every prospect of
success. Never was thero a time when
the feeling between the United States
and South Amorlcn was so cordial as
it Is now. We have tho friendship
even of Mexico.?Indianapolis News.
