Dear Sir: The Secretary Disc Plow I pur chased from you is giving us satisfaction. We are using it to plow under a crop of lupins. They are three feet high -and very thick. Your plow turns them completely under, at the same time plowing the land fourteen inches deep. I feel satisfied that with this plow the draft for the same quantity and depth of work is as 6 to 8. That is, with the old plow, to do the same work, it takes 8 good mules; with your plow it takes only 6, and they are less tired at night. Please send me another plow by first schooner leaving for this. You are at liberty to use this in any way you may see fit. Yours truly, . A. L1DGATE. ROBERT CATTQN 212 Queen Street. Honolulu. ATT N Monster Avalanche Sweeps Many People to Dentil. SEATTLE, (Wash.), April 9. The most terrible calamity yet told of the trails in Alaska is to be recorded of ine Chilcoot Pss, where, on last Sunday afternoon, a score or more of miners are believed to have perished in an avalanche of snow and ice that tore down the mountain side, moved from its resting place by the warm Chinook winds that blew from the sea. Conflicting reports as to the number of lives lost have been received. One statement is to the effect that 31 bodies had been recovered before the Al-Ki sailed. Another authority gives the number of bodies found as 21, while still another states that possibly CO live-s have been lost. The story of the disaster, appalling ih its loss of human life and untold misery to those that were left living, but mained and penniless, was brought down on the steamer Al-Ki, Capt. J. W. Gage, which left Skagway Monday morning last and arrived here last ev ening at 7 o'clock. Captain Gage and Purser W. II. Bush both corroborate the story. Purser Bush says that the first word of the calamity was received by telephone at Skagway on Sunday afternoon about 5 o'clock. This was at least three hours after the slide. The following morning word was transmitted over the tele phone that 31 bodies in all had been taken out of the snow, ice and debris of ruined tents and outfits. The accident happened between Stone House and 'the Scales, while the trail was thronged with miners. Since the great Alaska rush began, stories of disaster have been brought down by the steamers from Skagway and Dyea which, upon investigation, have proven unfounded and utterly un true. In the present case, however, the narrative of the terrible loss of life on the Chilcoot trail appears to be trust worthy. It is confirmed by several in dividual newspaper correspondents who sent dispatches down on the Al- Ki. It is also confirmed by the Associ ated Press correspondent at Skagway, who put his letter aboard the Al-Ki a short time before she-sailed. Additional confirmation of the story is contained in a telegram received by John A. Whalley from W. A. Dickey. This message was filed last night at Victoria, but it is believed that it was sent from Dyea, where Mr. Dickey was when last heard from. He says that the number of men and women killed may reach 60. Powers Inform Her That This Ouly Wlll Avert War. NEW YORK, April 9 The World publishes a copyrighted special from Madrid on Thursday night, by way of Bayonne, France, which says: The ambassadors of the five great powers, France, Russia, Italy, Germany and Austria, have diplomatically informed the Government of Spain that war with the United States can only be averted by Spain yielding. There is no reason to believe that the powers made extra ordinary propositions to Spain. They have said in effect that if she would make such concessions to the United States as they believe to be necessary the powers would guarantee her against war, both external and inter nal. The powers could delegate one of their own number, Austria, whose throne is so closely allied with Spain, the duty to defend Spain against any international foes that might arise, as a menace to the dynasty, as a result of the demand of the United States. Aus trian troops would have behind them the allied moral and physical forces of Europe. The Papal Nuncio who has been repeatedly at the palace during the past 24 hours, is believed to be in sympathy with this program. IJrltlsh Victory In Eyrypt. CAIRO, (Egypt), April 9. The Brit ish brigade in the defeat of the Der vishes at Athara, and the capture of Mahloud, the Dervish commander and 4,000 of his followers, lost, in addition to the officers killed, many in the rank and file.
