THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE MONDAY. JULY 25. 1898.
KLONDIKERS WITH THE YELLOW DUST A PARTY AKUIVES AT VICTORIA WITH HALF A MILLION. One Hundred and Thirteen Gold Dig ger Arrive from Alaska on tho Steamer CJaroune Plenty of Gold, the Miners Say, but Many of ihe Claims Are Worthless Diggings on American Territory Will Soon Surpass All Others. Seattle, Wash.. July 21, One hundred nnd thirteen Klondlkern who nrrlvcd nt Victoria yesterday morning on the steamer Garonne, reached here last evening. The most conservative esti mate places the nniount of gold they brought nt half a million dollars. Dr. C. W. Ward, of Portland. Ore., says there nre many who have large amounts, while on the other hand many are coming out broke. H. N. Jacob son, of Sacramento, Cnl., Is said to have $55,000 and Is probably the largest In dividual holder of the yellow stuff. Of two brothers of Philadelphia who are reported to have $70,000 each In dust, the story Is told that they refused to put their treasure In the steamer's safe. They suarded It all the way down, taking watches of six hours each. They said they were going to take It to the Philadelphia mint and would not let It go out of their sight one moment until thev arrived there. !!. G. Slbroy, of Portland, with four others, wns capsized while lloatlng down the Klondike river In n small boat. All lost what they had made during the winter. The hardnhlps in that country, he says, cannot be over estimated. "There Is plenty of gold there." said he, "and a few good claims, but thou sands of claims will not pay the re cording fee." The steamer Garonne collected $20, floo in dust for passage money from St. Michaels to Victoria. Kdward Alward, who has spent five years in Alaska, and who was one of the few who settled his claim on Amer ican territory when the rush to tho Klondike occurred, returns with near ly $50,000 of Forty Mile dust taken from his claim on Napoleon gulch. He says that within a few years, diggings will be developed on American territory that wilt surpass those of the Klon dike. i-i i - FEVER AT SANTIAGO. Representative Wadsworth Says No Serious Outbreak. Washington, July 24. Representa tive James W. Wadsworth, who has Just teturned from a trip to the front at Santiago de Cuba, said thut a se rious outbreak of yellow fever among the American troops need not be ap prehended. "The fact Is," Mr. Wads worth continued, "that many of the cases put down as yellow fever ure probably not that nt all. The authori ties are taking every precaution, and ! all suspicious cares of fever are Iso lated and guarded as If they were yel low fever, so as to be on tho safe side. It is mostly malarial fever. You see, our troopfi have been down there now just long enough to get well saturated with malaria. The beut and heavy rains, with the exhalation from the rank tropical vegetation, which they have been exposed to were calculated to give them malaria. You can have no Idea what a rain is until you have . 'bon in one down there. Tho water comes down as If It were being poured steadily from buckets, and the roads are simply gullies of mud when it vtfna. The clay toads of Virginia wo -had to contend with during the war of .the rebellion weie nothing to thee Cu ifan reads, and the growth Is so thick that yon cannot see twenty feet. Mil itary operations under such circum stance were naturally difllcult. It wna not possible to throw out the ordinary skirmish lines; the growth was Impen etrable, and admitted of no uiuh dis position of th troors as military meth ods requite. The last three days I was down there, however, tho condi tions were much improved. During that time there wns comparatively lit tle rain, and our troops weie very coin foi table. Under the more favorable conditions the mads had dried and the men could move with greater ease. They had three days' tatinn at the front, and the men were being put on the hlgU ground as fast ns possible. It Is n source of particular gratification that the yellow fever Is not seveic." RESULT OF IIOBSON'S VISIT. Novel Scheme to be Tried to Raise the Cristobal Colon. Washington, July 21. Lieutenant Hobson's visit Is expected to bring about an enlargement of the plans for saving the wrecked Spanish cruiser Cristobal Colon nnd some of the other stranded ships of the Cervera squad ron. The department had already act ed on the recommendations of Admiral Sampson, but those coming by mull and telegraph were necessarily limited, while the complete information, brought by Lieutenant Hobsnn, based on per sonal observations mid an expert knowledge of conditions, enables the department to set 11 much more thor ough Idea of the scope of this wreck ing project and the possibilities of sav ing the ships. The Colon Is lying on n terraced bench, only about ope-half of her hull being on shore, while the other half is an overhang In deep water. It has been found that the part of the ship on shore can be raised without much dif ficulty, but tho overhang creates a problem, as It causes a balance or lev erage which Interferes with the work on that part of the hull ashore. To meet this it Is now proposed to adopt an engineering scheme, on considerably broader lines than the usual wrecking devices. It will embrace a system of air bags and pontoons floated under ' neath the overhang, nnd gradually buoying It upward until the strain on the shore end of the hull Is relieved. In this way It Is hoped that the work of raising can proceed on the overhang and on shore simultaneously, and that the big steel hull thus can he brought to an even keel and Moated. The department probably will exe cute the enlarged wrecking projects at once. The original plan left the wreck ing largely with the company which took the contract on a per diem ar rangement. Admiral Sampson's lust report stated that the wreckem were proceeding with all duo dispatch, The visit of Lieutenant Hobson does not Imply any criticism on the wrecking methods thus far employed, but It is rnthrr for the purpose of developing them Intn the requirements disclosed l-y expert observations. The work Is likely to remain In the hands of the wreckers, they supplying the appar iUV lor the enlarged nelncrln-f opr- atlons proposed by tho naval constructors. LIL TO MAKE A PROTEST. It is Said Sho Will Issue a Manifesto When She Returns to Hawnll. San Francisco, July 24. It Is re ported among the Intimate friends nt Ltlluokalanl, the former queen of Ha waii, that when she reaches Honolulu she will Issue a statement or manifesto to tho people. As soon as she haB In formed her people of tho result of her mission sho wilt publicly protest against the transfer of the islands, nnd will present her claim for the crown lands confiscated by the republlc.whlch consist of nearly one million acres, which yield a yearly rental of over $100,000. It is said that she will also present her claim for between $300,000 and $100,000 collected as rentals by the republic. Prominent American lawyers, it Is said, have been engaged to manage the case against the United states govern ment. BROOKLYN'S FIRE. Terrible Work of Her Secondary Bat tery In the Engagement off San 1 tlago de Cubn. Oft Santiago de Cuba, July 21. "The secondary battel y lire of tho Brooklyn was teally terrible. It drove my men from their guns, and when you were nt closo l tinge did frightful work," said Captain Kulate two days after the destruction of the Spanish sriuad lon, nnd a readied olllcer of the Al mlrantc Oquendo said thut nearly one half of the terrible damage to that ship was done by 1 and 6 pounders, which constitute the secondary bat tery. The board of survey ordered by the commander In chief found forty six 6-pounder holes In the Almlranto Oquendo above her armor belt, and evidence that nearly all had entered and exploded. In the Vlzcaya there were eleven C pounder holes, and dozens of 1-poun-ders, and on these two hlps the tat too of death-dealing shells must have been appalling. The terrible work of the secondary batteries on the Almlr anto Oquendo Is somewhat explained by the fact that she was the last ship out, and nearest the torpedo boats and the Brooklyn, the Texas and the Iowa simply riddled her as she attempted to defend the two destroyers. Tho work on the Vlzcaya was apparently done by the Brooklyn alone, because no other ship wns near enough tu uso the small gun. The men who man these batteries are marines, and they light them In the most exposed parts of the ship, with little or no protection. Captain Paul St. Clair Murphy, of the Brook lyn, was the senior marine oftlcer pres ent on the ships that did the lighting on July 3, nnd he highly commended the work done by the men of his corps. Speaking of the men on the Brooklyn, he tells of a thrilling incident. He says: "The men were full of enthusiasm, but there was no excitement or disor der, and apparently no concern for personal safety. The battery was handled with admirable coolness and deliberation. Greater caro could not have en taken In getting sights and aiming if the men had been at target practice and each striving to make a record score. Considering the fact that the enemy were within effective range throughout the greutcr part of the action, the lire of the secondary battery must have been most destruc tive to his men and material, and con tributed Its full share to bringing tho battle to an end so speedily and with so little loss to ourselves. "When all did their dutv manfully it Is a dtflcult matter to select Individu als for t-peciul mention. Thore am some however, who deserve to bo brought to notice by name for conduct that displayed In a conspicuous milli ner courage, Intelligence and devotion to duty. During the early part of tho action a cartridge became jammed in the bore of the starboard forward ti pounder, and In the effort to withdraw it the case became detached from the projectile, leaving the latter fast In the bore and Impossible to extract from the rear. "Corporal Robert Gray, of the port gun, asked and obtained permission to attempt to drive tho shell out with tho rammer. To do this, if was necessary to go out on the gun, hanging over tho ' water, and tho undertaking wns full of itliheultles and nngei, the latter due In a great measure to the blast of the 8-Inch turret guns thing overhead. Tho gun wns hot, nnd It was necessary to cling to the 'Jacob's ladder' with one hand while endeavoring to manipulate the long rammer with the other. Affer a brave effort he wns forced to give up, and was ordered In. "Quarter Gunner Smith then came, sent by Executive Officer Mason, and promptly placed himself In tho danger ous position outside the gun port, where he worked nnd failed, ns the corporal had done Neither had been able to get the rammer into the bore, and there seemed nothing left to do but dismount the gun. "At this Juncture, Private MncNeal, op of the gun's crew, volunteered to go out nnd make it flr.il elfort. The gun was so Important, the starboard battery being engaged, that, ns n for lorn hope, he was permitted to make the attempt. He pushed boldly out nnd set to work The guns of the for ward S-lnch turret were tiring, almost knocking him overboard, mid the erte my's shots were coining with frequency Into his Immediate neighborhood. At this time the chief yeoman was killed on the other sldo of the deck. Muc Ncnl never paused In Us work. The rummer wns finally placed In the bore, and the shell ejected, nnd Mac Neal rcuumed his duties ns coolly ns If what he bad done were a matter of every day routine. "The buttle orderlies will merit a place among those whose conduct is worthy of special mention. They were on the move constantly, bearing battle orders from Commodore Schley and Captain Cook, nnd In no instance did they fall In the prompt nnd Intelligent performance of their- responsihlle duty. The slgnnl men occupied very exposed positions during the uctlon, nnd rend ered excellent service. Slgnul halyards and numbers and speedcoues were rid dled by small projectiles and fragments of bursting shell, casualties that show In what stone of danger the signal men performed their duties. Signalmen Coombs and Mclntlro und Battle Or derlies Rull and Davis were so near Yeoman Ellis when he was killed that they were spattered with blood. "None showed mote unflinching cour ago than the men In the mllltury tops, who stood by their guns, delivering their lire with unerring precision, un dismayed by the projectiles that were flying about them nnd striking In their Immediate vicinity. Private Stock bridge, the only man on the sick list, climbed Into the maintop at the signal for battle, where he remained until the end of the action, doing good work at his gun." THE MARKETS. Wall Street Review. New York, July 23. Tho dullness of the stock market was not relieved In tb clos ing hours of tho week, though there were one or two incidents of Interest in the duyn tnulliitr, One was the buying for London account. This wus not large out It was Influential and was pretty well dli. trlbutcd thrutigh tho International list. Litter the local traders look tho market away from the foreigners and bid up the prlco of the Pacific railway stock. This movement kicw out of the consultation! reported as having token pluco between the executives of tho Canadian Pacific and tho Great Northern and tho resulting rumors that the long drawn out dlsputo over transcontinental passenger rates had been ndjusted. The buying by Lon don In the face of tho downward ten dency of sterling exchange whlcn is nl reHdy within mcasurrnblo distance of tho gold Importing point, was rather unex pected. Money continued easy In London but It showed Itself sensitive to demands for gold. Tetnl ules were 85,000 sharcB. Furnished by WILLIAM LINN ALLEN St CO.. stock broken, Mears building, rooms "05-700.
