DRIVEN ASHORE
ON A REEF BY A
HOWLING GALE
Survivors of Wrecked
Steamer Independent
Aboard Mariposa
South Bound.
EXPERIENCES ARE TOLD
Craft Struck During the,
Dark Hours and Tore a
Hole by Scraping
on the Reef.
The crow of the wrecked steamer
Independent wcro aboard the Mari
posa this afternoon bound for So
attle. The boat struck on a chart
ed reef on the coast of Middleton
Island at 4:50 o'clock on the morn
ing of October Oth and is a total loss,
having sunk in twenty fathoni6
of water. The members of the crew
escaped in the dories but IobI all
of their personal effects with the
exception of the clothing they wore.
The ship's papers wcro saved by the
captain.
Ai uie time 01 nit- wrixH, ac
cording to the Btory told by Captain
Miller, the Independent was steer
ing a course to clear the Island by
about IS miles, but a southeaster J
was blowing and a strong current
was setting towards the island which
set the boat on the reef in the
darkness. She struck three times
before she finally settled for the
last time.
? At the time the Independent
struck first it was dark, but the
crow did not abandon her until 8
o'clock in the morning. The last
time she struck the rudder was
carried away ami she was entirely
helpless.. The wind was blowing
so hard that the regular dory
crews could not handle the boats
and they were being driven on the
lee side of the island where the
shore was absolutely straight up and
down.. The crews were doubled up
in the dorys and they were ablo to
row away from the rocks and round
the Island.
The survivors were entirely with
out food of any kind, but were sup
plied by Mr. Ibeck, who keeps a
fox ranch on the Island and were
taken to Cordova by him in his gus
boat. The Independent was owned
by the National Independent Fish
Company, of Seattle.
PRESIDENT IS PLEASED
WITH KIND APPLAUSE
INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 13.?Presi
dent Wilson was the guest of honor
yesterday of the Highway Day" held
in connection with the Centennial of
Indiana's admisson to the Union.
President Wilson declared at a non
partisan luncheon that when he
heard the kinw applause given him
in Indiauapolis he believed that the
people approved his interpretation of
the spirit of America.
After saying he was interested par
ticularly in the American flag of the
United States, the President smiling
ly declared that he knew there were
Republicans present who were as
good Americans as he, and that after
fighting for a few more weeks both
parties would work for the common
good of the nation.
The Emperor of Russia Is said
to be the finest royal singer in the
world.
WICKERSHAM,
THE RAILROAD
AND POLITICS
Dispatches from Seward say
Delegate Wickersham accused
the Democrats of trying to drag
the Alaska railroad Into politics,
and he is reported to have de
clared that the railroad was se
cured through the co-operation
of Democrats and Republicans.
This is characteristic of Dele
gate Wickersham. He never met
an Issue face to face In his life.
The truth is that the ALASKA
RAILROAD BECAME A POLI
TICAL ISSUE WHEN WICKER
SHAM SAID AT JUNEAU, DOUG
LAS AND ELSEWHERE, quot
ing literally and word for word,
"I GOT THE RAILROAD."
The Delegate thought it was
all right to make a political is
sue out of the railroad as long
as he thought he could make it
count for himself. When the
records of Congress and the testi
mony of those who know were
presented and dispoved the Del
egate's contention, he Bceks to
withdraw the proposition as a
campaign issue.
The fact is Wickersham has '
boasted about getting the rail
road for years, and he only
seeks to divide the honors with
others when the produced record
has shown the falsity of his '
claims, and demonstrated that
the credit is chiefly due to others.

MEKCHANTS ASK CHANGE
IN THANKSGIVING DATE:
KANSAS CITY, Oct. 13.? The
Merchants' Association of Kansas
City has taken the initiative and
sent a message to President Wilson
asking him to move the date of
Thanksgiving up to November 23.
The merchants have asked associa
tions of 20 large cities to join in
the movement. They say that if
Thanksgiving falls on November 30
as scheduled their Christmas busi
ness would be crowded into three

OF HIS VIEWS
Continued from Page One
oral government would pay the same
costs as It docs to the private parties
at the present time for their main
tenance and care.
"I would endeavor to get legisla
tion allowing all moneys from the
i Forest Reserve fund to be expended
the Division In which the forest
ireserve is located.
"I would endeavor to have house
bill No. 50 amended so that natives
would not have the right to arrest
or puss upon the guilt or innocence
of white people.
1 "I believe the present law should
be amended, or a new law enacted
not allowing as the present law
docs, so much chance for illegal
voting. 1 believe the election law
should provide for the registration
of voters in all municipalities for
all elections, Tcrltorial as well as
municipal.
"I believe the present compensa
tion law should be amended so that
liability companies could not set
tle with benificlarics of the law
without a settlement being approved
.by either the Attorney-General or a
Commissioner appointed to adjust
claims.
"I would endeavor to have the
Legislature memorialize Congress to
give us a full Tcrltorial form of
government, the same, as that al
lowed other Territories, recognizing
the Territory's right to enact Iuwr
governing all of its utilities and in
stitutions and the various phases of
local affairs, Including schools,
roads, the police powers, the liquor
and gambling and kindred matters.
In short, tho government of Alaska
should be vested in the people of
Alaska instead of the Departments
at Washington. With a full Terri
torial form of government tho peo
ple of Alaska could solve their own
problems, and provido for the dovel-j
opment of the Teritory and the ex
pansion of its business."

ROLANDO LEFT POWER
OF ATTORNEY IN CITY
It was learned today that Peter
Rolando, before leaving Juneau, left
his power of attorney with J. L.
Gage, together with 47,802 shares of
stock in the Alaska-Treasure Mining
Company, with orders to sell all the
stock and pay the bills in Juneau
and on the Channol. Rolando had
been intending to leave for some
time, and before leaving left a list
of his bills and attached it to the
power of attorney for the sale of the
stock.
? arrants for Rolando's arrest were
issued yesterday and telegraphed to
Ketchikan, when his creditors learned
that he had left the city. It is not
known whether he was apprehended
there or not.
