model revolver at 50 yards without
using a rest and in the sixshot test
his score was 2 1 1 1 4 3 Total 12
the record being above 16 The first
shot cut the line adjoining the bullseye
and the next three struck the oneinch
center After beating the worlds rec
ord for six trials he fired ten shots at
the same distance under the same con
ditions and scored 39 another new
mark for that number of attempts

cb McNallys Feat 1
London July 25Pat McNally the
I Boston swimmer who was scheduled
to make an attempt to swim the Eng
lish channel on July 4 telegraphed to
the Associated Press today from Ca
lais that he made the crossing yester
day Tie says that he started from
Dover at 1130 in the morning and was
in the water 15 hours in which he cov
ered 35 miles He landed at 230
oclock in the morning at a point three
miles from Cape Gnznez
McNally left the Admiralty pier at
Dover in the presence of a crowd of I
onlookers at 1120 oclock intending to
go merely for a trial swim A lugger I
manned by two local sailors accom
panied him McNallys trainer Brown
of Boston the proprietor of a music
hal at Dover and one London jour j
nalist were also aboard the accom
panying boat McNally swam steadily
at the rate of one and onehalf miles
an hour At a point four miles out the
temperature was found to have fallen
from 64 to 62 degrees and the weather
had become very foggy Six miles out
the fog lifted and all the circumstances
of tide and wind were so perfect that
McNally announced his determination
to try and cross the channel He had
been heading direct for Calais but a
strong westward current had drifted
him to position nearly on Folkestone
He now took refreshments consisting
of beef extract and ginger and a long
piece of American chewing tobacco
He swam continuously with a breast
stroke with occasional changes to a
side stroke for relief but he never
swam on his back which he explains
interferes cles with the action of the mus
At 4 oclock the Varne lightship was
seen by the swimmer One and one
half hours later he had Dassed the
Varne which proved Captain Webbs
greatest difficulty when he attempted
to swim the channel At 10 oclock Mc
Nally began to show signs of exhaus
tion but pluckily continued at his
task From this time until 2 clock
the temperature of the air gradually
grew lower McNally suffered severely
the swelling of his hands giving him
great trouble while from time to time
he was seized with cramps in his legs
neck and arms causing a drawn hag
gard look about his face and the pas
sage of his nose and his mouth became
swollen so that breathing was difficult
At 230 oclock he had reached a point
within three miles of Cape Griznez
Here he commenced to splash wildly
and to swim in a circle and calling for
light He was blinded by the salt
water and they tried to persuade him
to get on board This he refused to
do when he was forcibly dragged into
the boat He immediately became un
conscious but upon being rubbed grad
ually revived
Owing to change of tide the boat had
great difficulty in reaching Calais I
arrived there however at 530 oclock
McNally quickly recovered from his
exhaustion and crossed to Dover by
the midday boat Tonight he looked
fairly well
Little Rock Arkansas People I
Little Rock Ark July 25The Ne
vada county grand jury has indicted
Deal Beck Willett Beck Tom John
son and Allen Sherry each for arson
and assault with intent to kill
The men are members of a gang of
white men who have been waging re
lentless warfare on the negroes in the
lumber districts of south Arkansas
The crime for which the u
e cr me men were ar
rested was the shooting of a number
of negro whom the whites had tried
to drive out of town The whites
burned the cabin over the heads of the
blacks and when they attempted to
escape as the building collapsed shot
them down Four were shot but recovered
covered The others escaped
Never Was 3 More Important Sitting
Held Than This
Berlin July 25 Probably not since the
days of Prince Bismarck has there been
such an important sitting of the lower
house of tffie Prussian diet as was that
of Saturday
Importance of I
erin July 25Ia order to understand
the Importance of the division taken in
the house i must be remembered that
the lower house of the diet does not con
tain a single socialist member and there
fore the law of associations bill was rejected
jected on its merits by a body of men
Who although radicals are a patriotic
and loyal as the framers of the measure I
Concerning the attitude of the public
it is sufficient to say that the crowd only
cheered the arrival of the members well
known as resolute opponents of the bB
The speeches of the government members
were as spiritless as though delivered
over a bill already practically dead Dr
Miguel regretfully abandoned i t Its fate
and occupied himself in sketching his I
future policy which briefly is a policy
of compromise between the great political I
parties The general comment is that
only a Bismarck could have pushed such
a bill through and the outlook Is not I
prosing for Emperor Williams new
Dr Miguel satd that the government
will not dare to dissolve the cnamber for
fear that an appeal to the country will
still further reduce their majority
Autonomy Por Crete
Canea Crete July 25Djeveed Pasha
the special Turkish commissioner sent
from Constantinople to mediate between
the Musselmans and the admirals of in
ternational fleets for autonomy for Crete
visited the admirals officially today and
they returned his visit In the eyes of
the Christian Inhabitants of the Island
the fact that Djeveed Fasha was per
mitted to land is a blow to the prestige
of the great powers and the Cretans
have already sent delegates to Admiral
Canevaro commanding the combined
fleets notifying them that they will de
cline tp entertain proposals for
autonomy so long as Djeveed Pasha or
the Turkish troops remain on the Island i

Said to Have Been Shamefully

From the Effects of Which He
Died at the Ogden Medical Insti
Special to The Herald
Ogden July 25A friendless tramp
died at the Ogden Medical and Surgical
institute this evening He gave his
name as William Allison and told a
story of being maltreated near the Hot
Springs and his story taken in con
nection with other circumstances of his
death indichte that an inquest should
be held to clear up the mystery The I
man was brought to Ogden Thursday I
last bj Mr Munsey of Hooper and I
was placed n charge of the county He
was then very sick and was admitted
to the hospital and given every care
possible One arm was broken and
evidently had been so for some time
without having been attended to There
were also bruises about his legs and I
he complained of pains in his chest I
and shoulder The attendant at the
hospital thinks he was injured inter I
nally because the exertion of getting
out of the carriage into the building I
caused him to vomit freely Allison
told an attendant at the hospital that I
he had been beaten and otherwise mal I
treated by a lot of fellows who were
out at the Hot Springs on bicycles He I
said they had swung him around by
the feet and otherwise abused him
without any cause and after his in I
juries he was kept in an outhouse at
the springs for a day or two and a I
man had been paid 3 to take him down I
to Mr Munseys place at Hooper where
he had previously worked The man
was quite positive that the affair hap I
pened at the springs last Tuesday
night He said he was a native of
France and had been working in Wyo
ming for a year or two before going
to work for Munsey His death was
sudden as he appeared to be gettinr
better County Physician Conroy sai O
he understood the man was a tramp
and got the worst of a fight with some
other tramps The wound on his arm
as arpfrentlv the most siour nr
He had been drinking heavily He is
about 37 years of age Mr Uoane man
ager of the Hot Springs hotel said
I the trouble whatever it was occurred
two or three weeks ago when the man
was there and thrust himself into a
crowd who were drinking in the bar
room and got drinks set up to him sev
eral times The next morning they
found him stretched on a bench at the
south end of the hotel outside He
was In a stupor and one arm seemed
discolored and crippled Doane sup
posed that he was drunk and had lain
on his arm all night However he
sent for Dr Taylor of Brigham City
and made the unfortunate fellow com
fortable in a vacant house At the I
mans own request he had him taken
to Munseys at Hooper Mr Doane
says that on the night preceding the
finding of Allison there had been sev
eral parties or gangs out there haying
a bolstering time but he was positive
that none of them had ill treated Al I
lison in any way He could not remember
member the names of any persons who I
were out there on that night and as he
is not sure of the date the hoiel reg
ister offers no assistance His theory
Is that Allison got drunk and fell off
the depot platform which view is
shared by an attorney who said he
was consulted about possible compli
cations Another rumor is that a party
of good flows were out on a lark and
supplied Allison with liquor and were
none too careful with him when he be
came helpless Certain I is he received
every caite since his injury with the
exception that his broken arm should
have been set sooner The body was
taken to LIndquist the undertaker
As yet no arrangements hat been i
made for the inquest I

The Income That Europes Rulers
Have to Worry Along On
Pall Mall Gazette The monarchial
profession has its drawbacks and dis
advantages no doubt still i is not a
profession which monarchs will wil
Unglv let die The business Is in fact
a fairly remunerative one The mon
arch who would cut up best of all
would appear to bf the Russian auto
crat His landed property brings him
in a yearly income of 12500000 The
output of his Siberian mines has been
estimated at about as much and his
civil list is certainly not overstated at
5000000 Two and onehalf millions
a month ought to do him very well
The incerti considered however the
emolument does not seen so excessive
Certainly the sultan whom considera
tion of this sort cannot choose but af
fect is not nearly so well off financial
ly I He possesses real fnacial
value of but some 4000000 and his
professional emoluments amount to no
more And then he has a force of 5000
court officials to feed and clothe and
at any rate to owe salaries to
William Kaisers professional Income
may be given In the same figures as
represent the sultans I is not un
known that William is also a land
owner on I somewhat extensive scale
Perhaps though he gets more out of
his land in the way of sport than In
any other And i must not be forgot
ten that he is the father of a famiry
which evinces a marked disposition to
increase and that he has probably the
most tremendous tailors bill in Europe
I may be doubted whether his neigh
bor Austria who sticks to the same
undress uniform at home and the same I
suit of serge abroad and whose prac
tice is worth an annual million to him
Is not i half 0 million better off by i
The shah of Persia is very welltodo
He has a personal estate of 30000000
and a professional income of 2500000
This Is nearly 500000 better than the
emoluments of monarchy In England
Which seem to get its monarchy run all
things considered on exceedingly rea
sonable terms In Portugal as in
Greece a monarch gets but a modest
250000 per year In Greece this pay Is
provided as to 200000 by the taxpayers
of the country The remaining 50000
is furnished In equal proportions by
those of England France and Russia
Of the leading monarch presidential
he of France draws 120000 a pay an
other 60000 for incidental expenses
and a similar sum for his official trav
els The president of he United States
nculcates the austereylrtues of re
publicanism upon a modest 50000 On
the whole the profession la no reason
to complain

finally the Yukon river for Circle City
so named because i stands not many
miles below the Arctic circle He has
taken with him his dog Shirley a
beautiful and remarkably intelligent
cole They have been inseparable
for years The dog who is quite a
character excited so much Interest in
his fellow passengers that he was allowed
lowed to occupy the parlor car across
the continent sleeping in the same
berth with his master as he has since
in the same sleeping bag Even on the
six days sail from Seattle to Juneau
Shirley was the only dog on board who 1
was allowed the run of the hurricane
deck The pair have now got amid
unwonted and perilous scenes and
are likely to affect each others for
Juneau Alaska May 251 am now
in Juneau as you see The city if you
can call i one is situated on a shelf
comIng out from the mountain behind
I which is 3700 feet high and goes up
so steep that I looks as if one could
throw a stone from the top Into the
middle o the city I is all rock and
would be impossible to climb There
is a pretty rough crowd here just now
over 200 miners coming up with us
and a lot came up on a boat before us
Shirley stood the voyage well and is
glad to get off the boat The town is
full of dogs but Shirley has made quite
a hit already I have bought him a
harness such as the dogs here wear to
drag sleds I shall probably go to the
Yukon the day after tomorrow I can
hardly wait there is such a noise
around me The hotels which are
very crude are all crowded and there
is always something exciting going on
in this room The streets are almost
impassable on account of the heavy
snow There are no street lights few
sidewalks lots of Indians and dogs and
a great many miners The town does
not quiet down till about 3 a m The
shops do an Immense business
June 4We are now at Sheep Camp
the last camp on this side of the Chil
koot pass We started from Juneau
on the Seoiin a little kind of tug for
Dyea on March 2S at 1 a m with
ten dogs 2 men and one womanthe
wife of a miner The boat was full of
the outfits of the men so full that
there was no room for us to lie down
The men are mostly the ones that
came through with us from Seatte
nearly l all from California The weather
y al Calfornia wtJther
was rather rough so a good major
ity of the men were sick I waS
The dogs kept up a continual howling
all night Stopped at Haines Mission
and took on seven men a squaw and a
baby and another dog Arrived at
Dyea next day at 230 p m The ice
had broken in the river and so we were
obliged to transfer all our baggage on
board a scow The pilot timed his
trip so as to arrive just when the tide
was going in After we were on board
the scow a little boat was seen ahead
with an anchor which was attached
to a long rope This anchor was let
drop about 100 feet ahead and we
pulled in the rope In this manner we
made our way against the current of
the river and a head wind The anchor
chor bothered us about dragging I
was on the scow that I took the ko
daks that I sent you We hired our
outfits taken to the camping ground
about threequarters of a mile up the
river as there was not snow enough
for the sleds for almost half a mile
from the beach From the camping
ground there is plenty of snow There
are seven horses going over the sum
mit to the Yukon Dogs are mostly
used here from two to 12 fjeing put to
a sled strung out one ahead of the
other Generally four are used and I
SOP an or o i n ar y
will pull pounds on
road They have little padded collars
Shirley by the way is a great help
He hauls 150 pounds with ease We
work side by side and he likes I I
have about 850 pounds in my outfit so
as I cannot haul more than 150 pounds I
In one load I have to make two trips
to every camping ground We are all I
in the same box
When we broke camp at Dyea we
left at830 a m for the mouth of the
Dyea canyon The way is up the val
ley of the Dyea river We arrived at
330 p m All this time to make tan
miles You see it is not fun traveling
in this country We saw a small glacier I
not far from the trail The canyon is
about two and a half miles long and
very beautiful I is not more than 50
feet in the widest part and narrows
to 15 feet in some parts I could not
get a picture of it on account of he
weather Its height I should judge
is about 150 feet and very steep Tim
trail is very narrow and crooked in
some places i being not more than two
feet between the wall and the roar I
ing cascade some 20 feet below There
is no railing either yet horses make
the trip every day with little sleds 16
inches wide between them They are
always slipping off though but never
at the worst places Of course we had I I
to make a number of trips through
this canyon Nobody can haul more
than 150 pounds I was all I could do I
with Shirleys help The last load I
hauled clear through to Sheep camp I
socalled on account of the mountain
sheep that are killed here sometimes I
This camo is the last one on this side
of the divide From here we shall have
to work our stuff up the summit by
packing it on our backs and then af
ter i is all up wait for a good day
and take our camp outfit over with
the rest Ther are lots of men here
waiting who have been waiting for ten
days to go over because of the weather
We may be here two weeks cant tell
anything about i We have reached
the last of the timber Our camp here
is I typical 0 pf what is to come Tfa
snow is oversix feet deeD and settled
at that We pitch our tents after
tramping the snow down hard and
shovel more snow against the walls to
keep the wind out Then we cut long
poles for the stove to rest on so that
when the snow thaws it will not drop
out of sight Then we cut boughs of
hemlock for our beds next we cut
I wood and cook our supper or dinner
You would think it would be cold with
the mercury down to ten belO zero
and a high wind but we are very com
fortable The little stove heats the
tent very hot and cooks beautifully
and if i does not set the tent on fire
you are 0 K Our tent has caught
three times already but we have been
here to put i out One man lost the
whole side of his tent After the tent I
has been set a week you have to go
down to i as the lloor gradually sinks
We are surrounded by mountains im
possible to climb The only ways out
ore over the pass or back the way we
came There is a glacier back of our
tent a little one I must stop now
and help set supper
June 12We have been at Sheep
camp since the 3rd and have been
doing very little on account of the
weather We see little sun on this
side of the range The last two days
were the only ones that we could
work There is a man in camp who is
taking seven horses to Circle City and t
for my helping him he is going to take
my outfit to the top of the summit
From Sheep camp to the summit is five
miles of the hardest road that I ever
saw A horse of 1000 pounds weight
can only haul 300 pounds to a load
and i takes two men to manage i
That is only to the foot of the sum
mit From there to the top of tho
summit I is about 2500 feet and very
steep Horses cannot go up with a
load and some not at all The In
dians pack this place for 22 cents a
pound so you see i is very difficult
The man with the horses has rigged
a windlass and can haul about 300
pounds at a time So you see we are
In luck The snow in the canyon we
go up is 15 feet deep so the old miner
say Everything is smooth and the
snow will hold up a horse I we
have good weather we shall cross next
I tell you there Is every kind of a
man here I send you a roll of pic
tures taken yesterday Two are of the
summit with the men going up to the
right with packs and you can seen the
tramway at the left There ate dog
trains and horses men and sleds and
Indians SiWashes we call them
here Shirley is very well and seems
to enjoy himself There are hundreds
of dogs here in camp and he has hun
dreds of fights But he can hold his
end up with them We are going to
work the windlass all night and have
this aftornoon to rest in I will send
this letter back by the carrier if it
does not cost too much There is go
ing to be a letter mal through from
Juneau over this pass this summer
once a month for letters only I am
almost snow blind having left mY
glasses at camp when I made the trip r f
this morning
Lake Linderman June 20 There is a
man going to Dyea tomorrow and per
haps he will mal this so here goesthe
last time probably until I get to For
ty Mile Post We have been here since
the 15th trying to get all our outfit
down off the pass The weather has
been very bad The trail the same I
have now about 900 pounds 0 stuff
having purchased more provisions
sugar and dried fruit to keep the
scurvy off which they say is very
prevalent in the Yukon To draw this
would take from three to five days
from the summit to Lake Linderman
I told you that I was changing some
work with who is t f
wor w a man w o s taking some
horses to Circle City This makes i
much easier for me than hauling down
my own stuff He had an awful time
getting his stock through in some
places but when the trail was good
he made good time with fair loads
Only two men had to go with each
The day we camped here we did not
wait for the hores to haul our stuff
over the summit but started on The
wind besran to blow harder than I have
ever seen it even in a White Mountain
winter but it was at our backs We
managed to get across Crater lake a
small lake about 300 feet below the
pass and surrounded by barren moun
tains except for a narrow cut through
which it empties into a canyon After
getting in the canyon it was easier to
go on as it was impossible to turn back
and nobody could climb out I do not
think we could have made it had we
not known it was sure death to stop
The canyon is like Dyea canyon only
a little wider and the wind whistles
through it like water out of a hose It
would fairly take one off ones feet We
floundered this way for nine miles We
struck the camp at 630 p m I dont
think I was ever so glad to see a tree
before In my life The timber starts
and stops with a jump in this country
We pitched our tents borrowed some
wood cooked our supper and went to
bed comparatively knocked out
You cannot imagine what dreary
places these mountain tops are noth
ing but snow with a few rocks stick
ing out on the sides and the tops look
so bleak and cold Nothing else in
sight When it is clear the glare is In
tense Everyone wears dark goggles
and blacks his face and even then
goes snow blind I was blind in mi
right eye for two days Five men were
entirely blind and had to be led All
the skin is peeling off the faces of those
who did not wear masks or veils Even
the dogs have to have their faces
blacked to prevent snow blindness
When we get on the lakes we can
make rood time with the horses I
shall be glad when we get out of these
canyons You feel as if you were shut
in from everything The one we are
camped in now is verry narrow not
more than from 50 to 100 feet wide and
200 high I had my first Vy at whip
ping lumber today that Is sawpit
A Peat of Surgery
San Francisco Post I suppose I
performed the greatest surgical opera
tion of the age remarked the youngest
doctor In the crowd that had been
swapping experiences I was taking
a run through British Columbia on my
bicycle when I was asked to attend a
young Indian whose stomach had been
pierced by a rivals knife I had no
surgical appliances but I fixed up the
cut so that the fellow was around the
next day and is strong and healthy
now How did you do it asked all in a
Well the Indians had slaughtered
a beef that day I picked u a nice
thin piece of tripe tied a string to it
covered it with tire cement shoved it
through the wound and pulled it Into
place just as if I were mending a punc
ture in my tire It was the greatest
But the crowd had melted away
