Washington, Feb. 20.—Secretary Al ger has transmitted to congress a com plete report on the'relief work of the war department in the Klondike coun try, undertaken undervact of congress as a result of reports that extreme dis tress among the miners followed the influx to the gold country during 1857 9S. It embraces the detailed reportsiof Capt. P. IT. Ray and Lieut. W. P. llich ardson. Aside from details of the re lief work, Capt. Ray's last.report, dated May last, contains the following inter esting statement: "I deem it of the greatest importance for the development of the country that roads should be opened, so as to enable the people to enter the country not only from the Yukon to the open sea In our own country, which Is of the greatest importance, but to enable miners and prospectors to get Into the interior with their supplies. Under ex isting conditions persons can enter the country only by the one great highway— the Yukon river—and they cannot hope to be landed at any point in Alaska earlier than July 1. "The gold-bearing districts are from 60 to 150 miles back from the main stream. There are not any summer trails except foot trails, and provisions and tools can only be transported on the backs of men. "I don't find anything either in Alaska or Northwest territory to justify the great rush of people to that country, or the enor mous investment now being made in trans portation, trading and mining companies. In Northwest territory, no discoveries of extraordinary richness have been made since that of the Klondike, and the claims are almost entirely confined to Bonanza, Kelghbora Force nn Entrance to Beii idenee anil Find Four Dead llod lei—Ga Was Escaping—Evidence C121)1% THIRD CITY OF THE PHILIPPINES, lO HE OCCUPIED XEXT. lO "Up to date no paying mmeral loads of either gold or silver have been discovered in North Alaska, so far as known. I am now fully satisfied that in the near future Alaska will be the source of great wealth, but the development will necessar ily bo slow owing to the climatic condi tions. I recommend the early introduction of horses, mules and cattle, and extra in ducements should be held out for the de velopment of agriculture in the valley of the lower Yukon especially. Wild hay can be obtained there in great abundance, and oats, barley and spring wheat can be suc cessfully cultivated as well as potatoes, turnips, and all the more hardy garden vegetables, all of which would be required for many years to meet the local demand, and by reducing the cost ot transportation and food render it possible to proiitabiy work a large per cent, of the mines now ly ing idle. uut tew ol' the people now entering the northern part of the territory will ever be come a factor in its permanent develop ment. They must pass away before the time when the wealth of the country will become known and developed. To promote this 1 recommend that severul well equipped parties be put in the field and a thorough geographical and geological ex ploration of the country be made, so that men of ordinary means will be able to en gage In the work of prospecting and min ing. At present It requires considerable capital to first explore the country for a practicable route to transport supplies be fore any work can be done In prospecting.

In tlie Rooms of a Debauch—Little Girl Saaglit Help. Philadelphia, Feb. 20.—Mrs. Charles Fahrenkamp, aged 33 years, her two children, Florence and William, aged respectively ten and nine years, and an unknown woman, aged about 35 years, weiie found dead Sunday in a room in Mrs.' Fahrenkamp's home, 1416 North Fift^s'econd street. The gas was turned on and life had apparently been extinct for several days. Scattered about the first floor were remnants of cigars and cigarettes and empty beer and whisky bottles. The bodies were found by a next-door neighbor who had forced an entrance to the house. Mrs. Fahrenkamp was lying on the floor and her daughter near by. The unknown woman and the boy were in bed. The last heard from the inmates of the house was on Thursday night, when the piano was kept playing until a late hour. On Friday morning Mrs. Wilson, living next door, was asked by Florence to assist her in raising her mother' from the floor, where the child said she was sleeping. Mrs. Wilson told her she was unable to do so, and sug gested that the girl cover her mother and allow her to continue sleeping. The two women and the boy, it is be lieved',* were then dead, and from the position of the girl, who occupied an other room, it is thought that she was overcome by the gas while trying to lift her mother. Mrs. Fahrenkamp's bus- 919 oanu, wno is a traveling salesmSVi, left home about a week ago on business for his firm. TO RECONCILE DIFFERENCES. United States Government May Sanc- tl011 th» Floating of Bonds to Pay Cuban Soldiers. Washington, l«'eb. 20.—Efforts are making, with every prospect.of success., to reconcile the radical element among the Cubans to the proposition of the United States government to pay the soldiers of the Cuban cause $3,000,000. This is expected to be accomplished through a rather sweeping authoriza tion by the United States government for the incurment of a considerable loan to make good the deficiency be tween the sum the United Statesagrees to pay to the troops and the- sum the Cuban leaders believe to be the small est- that can be paid with benefit and due regard to justice. So far. the prop osition lias not. taken official shape here, but the administration has been quiet ly sounded by the Cuban contingent, who have expressed gratification at the prospects. Gen. Gomez, himself is ex pected to broach the plan, formally when he begins his conferences with Gen. Brooke in Havana. Gomez ar rived Wednesday at. Matanzas, making his way very slowly towards the capi tal. What is proposed is that the United States shall sanction, the float ing of bonds by the Cuban municipali ties or provinces to the amount of $7,000,000, which sum is to be paid over to the Cuban, troops in addition to the $3,000,000 to be paid by the United States. The municipalities are to set I aside a certain proportion from the receipts from customs and other sources of taxation to meet the bonds. In addition to this, the United States government is to be askedi to sanction the redeiupt ion out of the customs re ceipts of the bonds issued in aid of I the Cuban rebellion to the amount of $2,500,000. Data, it is- stated here, will be pro duced- by the Cuban assembly to show that every cent of this sum was ex pended in legitimate war expense*. ISSUED IN TWO PARTS—TUESDAY AND FRIDAY. A FAREWELL SURPRISE Lodge Sternberg Tender a Surprise and An niversary Party to Mr. aud Mrs. M. A. Harding.. The lodge room in Laub's block was the scene of good fellowship last Fri day evening when the Woodmen of the World, the Odd Fellow's lodges, the ladies of the Woodmen Circle and the Rebekahs tendered a surprise to Mr. and Mrs. M. A. Harding. The oc casion was the ISth. anniversary of their wedding, and was all the more appropriate as they are about to leave Denison and the party served *n the nature of a farewell also. After bounteous refreshments Mrs. L. M. Baer took charge of the meeting and called upon Mrs. La Burk, who with a few fitting words, presented Mrs. Harding with«a handsome souve nir of the occasion on behalf of Linn Grove Circle. Mr. II. A. Cook acted as toastmaster, and was fully equal to the emergency, introducing the differ ent speakers in a humorous and yet eloquent manner. Rev. A. G. Martyn responded feelingly to th« appropriate toast, "Our Guests," bidding them God speed on their journey, and assuring them that the affectionate regard of our people went with them. Prof. Van Ness spoke of the principles of frater nity taught by the lodges and the good done by them. Miss Ella Ivens respon ded to the toast, "The Ladies and the Lodge." She recalled the good work done by the ladies in lodge work, and challenged opposition to deny .if possible, the good results. Mr. G. L. Caswell spoke eloquently of the "Lodge Goat," and told of the many lessons of good will, friendship and benevolence which that much abused animal taught. Rev P. W. Bateson spoke of the "Lodge, and the Church." His talk was humor ous. but filled with sensible thought of the common purpose of both lodge and church in promoting brotherly love At the close Mr. Harding, with voice tremulous with emotion thanked the friends and fellow lodge members for the evidences of esteem which had been showered upon himself and wife. Ic was midnight when the company adjourned. These gatherings are bright lights along the shore of life. DEATH OF MR. JOHN MORGAN.

Iowa in 1841 when but a young man. In 1849, upon the dis covery of gold in California, in common with thousands of others he made his way to that El Dorado, going by the tedious ocean route via Panama. After spending nearly two years he returned to his home, where in December 1854 he was married to Miss Patterson, the devoted companion who survives him. A few years later he again returned to the Pacific coast, engaging in mining and penetrating into the remote re gions of Alaska, living an isolated life among the Indian tribes whose lang uage be acquired aud spending eleven years in that territory. Returning to Iowa, he located a farm home in Craw ford county near West Side in 1869. A year and a half ago be purchased a home in Denison to spend here his last days. He was permitted to -enjoy its tranquility but a brief period when the inevitable summons came, lie had set his -house in order and was ready to obey the call of God's messenger. Dying he leaves a priceless lesracy— the memory of a well spent life. Intel lectually by extensive reading and travel his mind had become a store house of valuable and varied know ledge. Religiously he was reared in the Society of Friends. Last April by profession of faith and baptism he uni ted with the Presbyterian church in Denison and was a most faithful and honored member. His character as a husband, citizen or friend inspired profound respect, confidence and affection. The funeral service was held at the family residence on Sabbath afternoon, cm ducted by his pastor. Rev. A. G. Martyn assisted by members of the Presbyterian choir and interment was made at West Side. Like other papers the REVIEW re ceives advertising propositions from mail order houses, but we do intend alvertiaing them even to the extent of mentioning their names. VOLUME XXXIV NO. IS« DEATH fJOISOII, Enno Krull's Untimely Death Caused by Paris Green. CORONERS INQUEST HELD Strange Circumstances of Death Jury Finds Gross Carelessness the Cause Paris Green and Uutter. Enno Krull, the ten year old son of Karl Krull, of Washington township, was found dead on Thursday atternoon. Mr. Krull was in town aud Mrs. Krull on returning from the field found the boy kneeling on tlie lloor with his head tnrough a roller towel, which hung from the door, with the little four year old baby lying across his feet calmly sleeping in the presence of death. Under the circumstances it was thought best to hold an inquest and accordingly the coroner was summoned and Con stable Cavett sent out to gather in wit nesses and jurors. The examination was held on Saturday and Drs. Folsom and Coon made the post mortem. The main factH developed by the inauest were as follows: Enno had been at work in the fields coming in to dinner after one o'clock, he ate but little, al though he made no complaint of illness. .' He told his mother that cattle were running in the field where the corn was still unpicked and Mrs. Krull went "to see ^boiit it leaving Enno and the babyvA .v. alone in the house. The field is nearly^ a half mile distant, Mrs. Krull went there, found but little corn but stopped'"'* to pick some stray ears, she returned, stopping again to tend to the chickens.'-. .When she got to the house she found Enno leaning against the door which.' she partially opened. She went round to another door and then aiCW the awful sight as described above. The body was still warm and she tried to restorer life. She then ran, for her nearest' neighbor, Mrs. Wm. Schweitzer, andv together they carried the body to the?' next room. It was Mrs. Schweitzer- who first noticed that in one room, used chiefly for a store room, quite a quantity, of paris green lying loose in a half opened drawer. She asked about it We, the jury, find that the deceased came to his death by poison, which we believe to be paris green, accidentally taken by himselr, said poison having been negligently and carelessly left ex posed. The funeral took place in the after noon at Defiance and it was a sorrow ful and pitiful company that left the farm house for the cemetery. Mr. Krull was nearly heart brosen over ibe loss of his son. While the verdict of the Jjury is sat isfactory and was made after complete and painstaking investigation it is probable that the manner in which the poison was taken will always remain a mystery. It is indeed a sad case, and while we think the verdict of careless ness was well sustained we do not think any further guilt should be attached to any one. DIED.
