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
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.
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

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
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
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.
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
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.
A Scheme to Colonize Them
In Missouri.
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
“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
“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
“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
“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
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
“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.”

Wine of Cardui
Cured Her.
213 South Prior Street, j
Atlanta, Ga., March 21,1903. ;
I suffered for four months -with
extreme nervousness and lassitude.
I had a sinking feeling in my
stomach which no medicine seemed
to relieve, and losing my appetite |
I became weak and lost my vital-1
ity. In three weeks I lost fourteen |
pounds of flesh and felt that I must
find speedy relief to regain my
health. Having heard Wine c£
Cardui praised by several of my
friends, I sent for a bottle and was
certainly very pleased with the
results. Within three days my
appefitu returned and my stomach
troubled me no more. I could
digest my food without difficulty
and the nervousness gradually
diminished. Nature performed
her functions without difficulty
and I am once more a happy and
well woman.
