THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE MONDAY. JULY 25. 1898.
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
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
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
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
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
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
"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
"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
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.
