The lettera, which tell for the first time of the reason ftiMhe separation Of Vllhjalmur Stefantson and certain others of his party from the explor ing, vessel Karluk, set at rest the ru mors of friction in the party. Fear for the safety of Captain Rob ert Bartlett and those who remained on board the vessel is expressed, how ever, and the future plans of Stefana aon are mentioned. It te known that Stefansson. the discoverer of the blong Eskimo?, in deeply disappointed through the loss of the Karluk. for he had felt abso lutely certain that it wou)d be the ves s^l first to. reach the unknown contin ent that is supposed to lie northeast of Alaska. The letters received here are from Stefansson and from Bert McConnell, m'eterorologiat of the expedition. They were delivered' to Miss Gertrude M. Allen, secretary to Stefansson, who accompanied the party aa far north, as Teller, Alaska, and returned last sum mer. I«ttcr Tolls of Lost Men. Stefanrson wrote that he expected to be at Herschel Island by next May. It waa McConnell's letter that convey ed' the news of the expedition. This waa pos-ed at Point Barrow, Alaska, November 1, and was dated OctoDer 19, It reads: "Stefansson, Jenness, Wilklns and myself, with two Eskimos, went ashore September 20 at the mouth of the Colvllle to hunt caribou, after be ing marooned on one of the Jones Islands for several days. Meantime a northeaster blew up and loosened the ice that held us all Summer. We had provisions' for ten days and managed to kill a seal or two, so we lived very well.

She was drifting west, and no smoke waa issuing from her funnel or galley. There Is no reason for doubting the old man's word, as he knows the Kar luk, and has no reason for lying. A few days later a schooner, without either yards or tunnel, was seen oil Point Barrow. "At any rate, the boat is adrift somewhere, and nothing remains to be done except Join the Alaska and Mary Sachs. They are at Collinsona Point, hauled out for the winter and in good shape. I am not of the pes simistic order, but if I ever see the Karluk again I shall be very much surprised. —"Bert McGonnell." Stefansson started from Victoria. B.

C. Oilbreath of North Dakota in a statement issued today. Attempting to show that the value of the products for 1918 were about flfty million less than the value in 1912, the department of agriculture of the United States, Gilbreath says, lays. Itself open to criticism. Previous attempts at estimating the crop values of the state also are scor ed by Commissioner Oilbreath, who shows gross lnacurracles, with par ticular reference to the report of 1909, where the census bureau and •.

Then bidding the trainmen to stay by the rest of the train, the robbers open ed the throttle and whlsk^d away In the night. DYNAMITE THREATS MADE AGAINST CLERKS.

Real value Is $156,000,000. Commissioner Oilbreath shows the values of the 1918 products is over $156,000,000, as against only $10o, 000,000, as fixed by the federal esti mate. His statement follows: When a difference of more than $50,^00,000 in a total of less than flitOiOfeO',Q6Q is found in statements: latl«jg^t:o, the agricultural products of a gitate, there is. surely something radically wrong in the methods em ployed 'to arrive at one or other MKhe differing results. Tet this is the amount of difference that exists be tween the government estimate of crop, values for-North Dakota in 1913 and that of the state department of agriculture. According to the govern ment figures the value, of that crop was $106,856,000, while a carefully compiled estimate of the state depart ment, based upon a personal interview with every farmer In the state places the value at $156,566,213. In1 claiming that the government estimate is .grossly inaccurate, is .based upon .insufficient data and .utterly falls to give the state due. credit for at least one-third of its actifel produc tion in 1913, attention is called to the fact that this is by no means the first time that federal statisticians have bungled their figures by over-es timation in some cases and under-es timatlon in others. It is perhaps an accident but in the light of this latest performance, rather significant that North Dakota should have been the sufferer in both instances, and our sisteir state- of Minnesota the gainer by comparison. A specific example will best illustrate how North Dakota has been belittled in the past and the more eastern state credited with a prosperity that later figures show never to have existed.
