CAME BACK ALIVE. * Hans Ilansou and Alex Tassel, who were reported to have boon seen lying j, cold and dead 011 the shores of Shelter Island, arrived home last Saturday well and hearty. They left Douglas ' just before Christmas on a hunting trip, taking with them only three or 1 four days' provisions, and when a fort night had passed, aud they did not re- j turn, their friends began to be anxious about them. They went over to Admirality Island hunting and were storm-bound and for 1< ten days subsisted chiefly on deer meat. ( When the cold blasts of winda come j whippiug down upon the placid water? ? of the narrow straits, they become dan- j porous to the most daring navigator, a true Fellowship. j The actiou of the Porcupine miners, who are speudiug the winter in Juneau ' and Douglas, in coming so uobly to the ! assistance of their comrade Le Roy W. < Miner, when the iron hand of fate had j snded his young life, has brought them < ?p in the estimation of the general public to the exalted position which they ?o richly merit. These men, tainted as they are with J the roughness of a prospector's life, have hearts that are touched by that. spirit of fellowship which were it world I wide would make this earth of ours a i paradise indeed. ' May the good Lord bless them. < A BATH IN WHITE HORSE RAPIDS. J Of the many thousands who have j aavigated the great Yukon river, but few if any, can relate any incideut of ;he trip which stamps its impression ipon the memory with more interest1 ;han that of passing through White ( dorse rapids. If this experience will ' lot send a lasting thrill through the >ystem, it is dead in the shell. < My third trip from Juneau to Bering i >ea, via the Yukon, began in earnest i vhen on Sept. 2nd, *98,1 launched my f 17-foot canvas boat, .and with its cargo )f 800 pounds, pulled out from the i lead of Lake Linderman, bound for St. . Vlichaels. Arriving at the White Horse, I land- ( id ou the left hand side, one-half mile ibove the "jump-off," and took a survey >f the place with the intention of laud- 1 ,ng just above the falls, at the same t ilace I landed iu *95. i Taking my.photographic equipment, ( -iflo and a sack of flour out of the boat,' [ pushed off shore and away I went at j i rate of 10 miles an hour. The boat j vas in lively action, and when uoar the j 'alls I lost control of it entirely by the j iars jumping out of the rowlocks, 25 feet from shore and within 300 feet of :hose terrible falls. I lay the oars ( lown, picked up the painter with 25 feet ( >f slack line, and sprang overboard. A * iard swim brought me to shore. I had 1 lust gained my feet when I was yanked ^ lead over heels into deep water by the slack being taken up. Another hard j lull for the shore, and almost exhaust- j id I gained my feet; and hitching the j lainter under a projecting rock the y aoat swung to the shore, and the fun ^ vas over. Everything safe, a change of ; dothes, away I went, and safely, too, i without an accident, to St. Michaels.! 1 rhe little canvas boat that had carried j ne 2500 miles was torn to shreds upon ^ :he jagged rocks by the same storm ;hat created such frightful havoc upon j ;he beach at Cape Nome. Antelope Doc. i ; , A coroner's jury composed of Theo Jore Hunciker, A. B. Frick, D. ? C. Spalding, J. S. Dunn, S. W.Looney and 0. J. Milan, was impanneled last Thurs day evening to inquire into the cause 1 >f the death of Le Roy W. Miner. Af ter visiting the scene of the accident ind hearing the testimony of Dr. A. ? Rogers, H. R, Elliott, H. R. Shepard, j lames Christoe, and Frank Dodson, ;hey returned a verdict to the effect I :hat said Miner came to his death from the accidental discharge of a gun in his >wn hands.
