VESSEL IS WRECKED COASTING SCHOONER VAN NAME AND KING LOOT OFF SOUTH CAROLINA COAST. S7.LF A DOZEN LIVES LOST TC.IFJ3LE STORY OF SUFFERING TOLD GY THE SURVIVORS OF THE WRECK. Boston, Oct. 17. —A story of a North Atlantic shipwreck in which eight sea men suffered so fearfully from expos ure. hunger and thirst that six of them either died outright, were washed - away or, crazed by their fearful expe rience, threw themselves into the sea, was told Monday by the two survivors of the coasting schooner Van Name , and King of New Haven, which was beaten to pieces by a gale off the South Carolina coast on Oct. 6. The two men who lived throughout the five days and were rescued by the schooner Stillman F. Kelley, which arrived here late Monday, are William Thomas and G. Warner, both about twenty-nine years of age, and hail from Antigua, B. W. I. The six who succumbed were Captain William A. Maxwell of New Jersey, Mate E. A. Chase, home un known; the engineer, a German, name unknown; colored steward, name un known: colored seaman, William Gri zell and Alfred Arthur, both of Ja maica. ■ The Van Name and King, which has been plying up and down the coast since 1886, left Charleston, S. C., for New York on Oct. 3 with a cargo of hard pine. Two days later she ran in to a heavy gale and sprang aleak. The pumps were started but within a short time the engine room was flooded and the pumps choked. At 8 a. m. .Oct. 6, with her hold nearly full of water, the schooner was hove down on her beam ends. The crew clambered up on the weather side and lashed themselves to the bulwarks. There they remained, washed by the seas that broke merci lessly over them all day Friday. •The Storm Increased. That night the storm increased and one great wave crashed aboard, break ing both legs of Seaman Arthur and sweeping Grizell from his fastenings. Arthur’s companions could do nothing to ease his sufferings,* but when on Saturday the schooner turned com pletely over they managed to cut his lashings and drag him on a piece of the afterhouse. It was several hours before they were all huddled together m their little raft. That night Arthur died in the arms of Captain Maxwell and his body was dropped overboard. Sunday a craft was sighted but she passed by without heeding the little group of seamen who frantically sig nalled her. That night the waves sub sided and a little rain fell, which was eagerly caught in a tarpaulin and brought some slight relief. It was only temporary and not long after Mate Chase’s mind gave way entirely and he jumped into the sea. The next victim was Captain Max well, who on Monday forenoon became violently insane and followed his mate’s example of self-destruction.. The spectacle cf two men throwing themselves into the sea proved too much for the German engineer and a few hours after Captain Maxwell’s death he, too, leaped to his death. The last victim was the colored steward, who died Monday night. Relief came twelve hours later when the schooner Stillman F. Kelley sighted the little craft and hove to alongside. Both Thomas and Warner had to be taken off in slings and for two days were unable to move. The rescue took place off Cape Lookout. TWO PROMINENT MEN SHOT. No Motive Known for Attempted Dou ble Murder. Anniston, Fla., Oct. 17—J. W. Trigg, ©nc of the most prominent citizens of Anniston, is dead and Chief of Police Dili is badly but not dangerously wounded as a result of a shooting af fray here Monday night. L. A.

Mr. i'rigg fell mortally wounded and Chief Mil received two painful flesh wounds, Per which he overpowered Pippin order-.': j Turn locked up. VIOLATION OF TREATY ACCUSATION IS MADE AGAINST NEWFOUNDLAND BY AMERI CAN FISHERMEN. COOT TAKES UP THE MATTER 6ECRETARY OF STATE BEGINS AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE CHARGES MADE. Washington, Oct. 17. —Through Rep resentative Gardner of Massachusetts, the Gloucester fishermen Monday offi cially laid before the state department their grievances against the New foundland government, which they charge with forbidding all vessels of American register to fish on the treaty coast. This right, the fishermen claim, Is granted them by the treaty of 1818 between the United States and Great Britain. Through the British ambassador, Sir Mortimer Durand, Secretary Root has been informed that the Newfoundland government disclaims all knowledge of any action in violation of this treaty. The Newfoundland government admits the arrival at the Bay of Islands on board the cruiser Fiona of the minis ter for marine and fisheries, but in sists he is there on duty not connected with the question. Until Representative Gardner has been able to obtain further details of the reputed action of the Newfound land government against the fishermen and the reasons therefor, Secretary Root will not make further represents tions to the London government. Mr. Gardner has telegraphed to Gloucester to obtain additional information. The Gloucester and Newfoundland fisheries question was revived last week by a telegram received by Secre i tary Root from Senator Lodge saying it was reported that the Newfound land cruiser Fiona had arrived in the Bay of Islands on the treaty coast with the minister for marine and fisheries on board, and that the minister had forbidden all vessels of American reg istry to fish on the treaty coast where they were then located. Governor Will Investigate. A communication was immediately ! cent to the British ambassador at , Lennox requesting* any information he might have on the subject. The am bassador communicated with the New foundland government by wire and started immediately for Washington, arriving here Friday night. Since then the secretary has received from the ambassador the contents of the latter s dispatch from the governor of New foundland, expressing ignorance of the report, and adding he would investi gate its accuracy. These are all the facts in the possession of the depart ment thus far. Representative Gardner and Benja min A. Smith, a Boston ship owner, who accompanied him to Washington, had a long conference with Secretary' Root Monday morning. They present ed all information they possessed on the subject. Information had reached them that certain American captains of fishing vessels now in the Bay of Is lands had been forbidden by the minis ter of fisheries to ply their business there. The report assigned no reason for this alleged order. A speech made last spring, however, by Sir Robert Bond, premier of'Newfoundland, in which he is quoted as advocating the exclusion of American fishermen from certain waters not specifically men tioned in the treaty of 18'JS, led to the suspicion that the alleged order might form the initiation of this policy. The Gloucester fishermen contend that if this is the position of the New foundland government they are pre pared to meet that issue by an array of facts which will prove the incorrect ness of any such construction of the treaty. The rights threatened have been en joyed by American fishermen for nine ty years. The reported interpretation of the treaty would prohibit them from fishing in the bays and harbors of the Newfoundland coast. It is believed that there has been some misunderstanding which can easily he cleared up as soon as the facts can be obtained. SHOT THE WRONG MAN. Chicagoan Could Not Tell His Twin Brothers Apart. Chicago, Oct. 17. —Because Frank Norway looks so much like his twin brother, Justine, that a third brother, John, could not tell them apart, Frank Is now in a hospital suffering from a bullet wound that John intended for Justine. The shooting occurred at the home of the brothers. John Norway, in a frenzy of anger at Justine for causing his indictment on a charge of con spiracy, lay in wait and fired from a front window of the house as Frank approached. Without discovering his mistake he fled, thinking he had re venged himself on Justine. The feud that caused this action was the out growth of a real estate deal. The in jured man’s wound is not serious. Suit to Recover Lands. Tacoma, Wash., Oct. 17. —In the fed eral court Monday six cases were filed j through Attorney General Moody to re | cover to the government title to lands In Oregon, Washington and Califor j nia out of which the government had j been defrauded. OZARKS FOR THE SWISS A Scheme to Colonize Them In Missouri. EAEMEES WILL BE IIEST SETTLEES If Their Verdict la Favorable, Sayi Samuel A. Hughes of the Frisco Railroad, Wine and Cheese Mahers Will Come In Large Numbers—Re garded as Good Colonists. “New Switzer]and” may be the title Bf the Ozark country in Missouri with in five years if the Swiss government keeps its promises made to Samuel A. Hughes, general immigration agent of the Frisco system, who returned re cently from a two months’ trip through England, France, Switzerland and It aly, says the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. With him came a party of Swiss farmers, who are to report back to their government on the adaptability of Ozark land for the vine and dairy industries. If this report is favorable the bulk of Swiss emigration will be turned to Missouri, and perhaps 90 per cent of the 15,000 farmers who set out yearly' for the new world will come to Missouri in North America rather than to Argentine Republic in South Amer ica. “Swiss farmers are the most desira ble immigrants,” said Mr. Hughes, “pro vided they' are put in a country that resembles their native laud. Some of the Alps are cultivated to their very tops, the inhabitants going to lower regions in winter, to move to upland pastures in the early summer. This condition can be duplicated in the Ozarks* and there we shall try to colo ! nize the Swiss. “Give them a few y'ears and the American Alps are assured. Travelers through the Ozarks will then see the chalet clinging to the top of ciifL's, around through which flocks of goats and cattle will reap the mountain grass, to turn it into cheese in the cottage factories. “On the lower ranges grapes will be grown, and as the Swiss peasant is a born winemaker Missouri wine from the Ozarks may one day' be sold in Europe. “Bransville, Howell county, has been selected for the first settlers, and if their verdict is favorable numerous other towns inhabited by thrifty Swiss will spring up in its neighborhood. “Although averse to letting their peo ple leave the country, the tide of im migration is too strong to be stopped by government action, and it is pro posed to direct the immigration into suitable fields rather than let the peo ple fall into the clutches of land sharks. I have the promise of Immigration Commissioner Dryfus of the Swiss government that he will direct colonies to the Ozark country if those already here give a favorable verdict. “President Ituehet of the Swiss re public is deeply interested, and when I saw him in Bern recently he said that if the Ozark country and Missouri in general was up to my description of It he would personally see that desira ble emigrants were directed to it. Not only farmers, but manufacturers, cheesemakers and buttermakers and i winemakers will be included in the Swiss settlers. “One man in Zurich has 100,000 | francs ready to put into a creamery as soon as the first settlers make their re port. “As to the Italians, they, too, will do ! well in southern Missouri and northern ; Arkansas, but they must have a lead i er. Their colony at Tontitown, under i the leadership of Father Bandine, has turned timber land worth sls an acre Into fruit and berry farms worth SIOO an acre in seven years. Baron des Plances, who visited the colony a year ago, assured me that he had never seen a happier or more prosperous commu nity. “The southwest has turned the flood of immigration from the north and Canada, and the country immediately tributary to St. Louis is destined to grow with as great strides as did Okla homa in the boom days. It will be a lasting growth if peopled with desira ble farm settlers, as is now the plan.” Japan and tlie Lost Ten Tribes. The Jewish World thinks it was per haps inevitable that the lost Ten Tribes of Israel should be sought in the Japanese, for the museums of Ja pan contain a number of engravings of old pictures, purporting to repre sent a landing of the Jews in the'days of long ago. There is said to be a picture showing a procession in which soldiers and priests take part, the lat ter wearing hats of Biblical pattern, and in which the hdly ark is easily to be discerned. There is also a drawing that depicts Solomon in the act of re ceiving gifts from the queen of She ba as well as models of his palace and the temple. Strangest of all, the found er of Japan’s dynasty of 12G emperors in 730 B. C. E. bore the same name, “Osea,” as the last king of-Israel (Hos hea), who was his contemporary. John D. Rockefeller as a Musician. Emma Heckle, a singer, who recent ly returned to Cincinnati, 0., from an eastern trip, in which she visited the Cleveland home of John D. Rockefel ler, asserts that Mr. Rockefeller could have made a living by music, says a Cincinnati dispatch. She says he is not a lover of music, but possesses musical ability in no mean measure. New Form of Policy. The life asurance companies, says the Chicago Journal, should now get out a new' form of policy insuring reputations against suffering from ex posure. Ducks Afraid of Use Dark. The farmer was making his custom ary evening trip to the poultry yard with his lantern. ‘*l can never under stand why you do that,” said his vis itor from the city. “Will you please tell me why you leave the lantern burning there all night? I should think It would disturb the slumbers of the hens.” “Well, if I didn’t leave it there you wouldn’t get a mite of sleep all night,” replied the farmer. “You see the lan tern is for the ducks. They are the most timid creatures on earth. The minute it gets dark they begin to get frightened and then they set up an in fernal. noise. All night long they’d keep it up if it wasn’t for the lantern. That seems to give them comfort and courage, and even then they’re dis turbed by any unusual noise. Talk ibout a watch dog! It isn’t in it ■with a duck for arousing the family.”—New York Press. Whistler and the Star*. A new story of Whistler is recorded. The artist and a friend went for a walk along the Embankment one won- i flerfully starry night. Whistler had been In a very discontented mood all ! day and inclined to find fault with i everything. Nothing pleased him; the ; houses were ugly, the river not what ! It might have been, the lights bard and glaring. His friend pointed out sev eral things that appealed to him as beautiful, but the master would not give in, “No,” he said, “nature is only some times beautiful, only sometimes, very, very seldom indeed, and tonight she is, as so often, positively ugly.” “But the stars! Surely they are fine tonight?” urged the other. Whistler looked up at the sky. “Yes,” he drawled, “they're not bad, perhaps, but. my dear fellow, there’s too many of them.” It you ever took DeWitt’s Little Early Risers for biliousness or con stipation you know what pill plea sure is.
