Twn Ueaihe on Hoard of Men Who Wars
In Uood Health.
8eatlle, Wasb., (Special.) After a voyami
of twenty-eight days from Cape Nome, dur
lug which two men died from starvation,
and others were bal'-crei-d from want of
food and water, the schooner Hera arrives!
In port, with Dearly 200 passengers on hoard.
News of the wretched plight of the Hera t
passengers was brought here Sunday ulghl
by the steamer Lakme. The revenue cut
ter Ornnt and tbe tug Sea Lion Imtnedlatelj
Itarted In aearcb, and succeeded In finding
the schooner about fifty miles off Caps
Flattery.
The two deaths reported are those of J.
8. Ryan, who came on board a well man,
but through bad food and lack of attention,
gradually grew worse, until he died on Oc
tober 10. Tbe other case Is much the same.
George Lamby, through want of nourish
ment and confinement lu III-ventilated quar
ter, wna taken with typhoid fever, and died
on October 21. While he waa slek he bad
absolutely no medioal atteutlon. Both men
were burled at sea.
From the statements of other passengers
It Is learned that tbe agent of thesliJp at
Noma guaranteed them plenty of good pro
rlslons on the way down. They were charged
(50 for their passage. When they were a
lew days out, meat, sugar and butter ran
out Tbe menu consisted of salt pork and
tanned mutton. There waa a little dried
irult on board, but only enough to supply
the table three tlmis with dried peaches nud
twice with dried prunes. From that time
9n for nearly twenty-four days their food
sonslsted of flour aud coffee. There was
plenty of flour, but the water was short.
Four days ago the last of tbe .unpalatable
lalt-bor.e waa consumed. Had It not been
for rnlnstorins which fell for a few days
they would hava Leen without water also.
When tbe Hera anchored out In lbs
stream, the majority of tbe men were so
weak that they could not carry Ibelr gold
dust ashore without assistance. Several
passengers were crazed front their terrible
experiences, and had to be carried ashore
and taken tare of. Even taking their ter
rible voyrtge Into consideration, the passen
gers unite In declaring the Nome to be tbe
greatest camp on earth, and many of them
will return In the spring.

Flliliufli Lee on I he Situation In Cnba
Wonderful Improvement,
Washington, (Special.) General Fllzbugb
Lee, who Just arrived lu Waal Ingtoo, from
New York, In an Interview said that tbe peo
ple of Cuba are steadily Improving under
the existing protectorate of the United
Stain, and art slowly but surely rebuilding
their war-wsated homes and repairing their
crippled fortunes. Life and property are
secure in Cuba, owing largely, be raid, to
tbetalutary rratrulnt exercised by American
military authority. He thinks tbt time not
ripe yet, however, for a purely Cuban gov
ernment. "Cuba," said General Lee, "is Improving.
The Cubsns are tradable nnd quiet, and tbe
revolution has given them self-respect and
self-reliance. Tbtlr Impulses are generally
lu tbt right direction, but, rt course, both lu
theory and practice of self-government they
art wholly without exper.enve. There It
among ccrtalu Cubans a deep-seated preju
dice against some men who, the Cubaus
think, oppressed Cubans under Hpnnisb rule,
and, If given a free rein, the Cubans wou.d
make short work or Iheio.
"Tbe United Statea government Is plrdgcd
to Brant Independence to Cuba after the isl
and has been pacified, and I believe that
promise should be fulfilled Just as swiftly ns
we can In reason and Justice. The Industrial
situation is Improving, and money Is grad
ually going Into Cuba, but nothing llku aa
fast as It wou'd If Investors were sure that
property would remain safe for years to
some, aud be protected by a government
strong enoUKb to enforoe law and order."
General Lee declined to discuss political
affairs In Cuba, ai d whether or Dot the
Cubans desired Independence or anuexntlon.

It Wat early In tbe morning when Weber

his wile. She asked him where he bad

"I snw some friends," Weber replied.
This excuse apparently satisfied his wife.
When Weber was asleep Mrs. Weber, in
whose n.lnd the word "frlendb" seemed
lUBpielous, arose aud searched the pocketa
of her busbaud's clothes, to get some clue
as to tbe cuuse ot his absence from borne.
When she put ber hand In the Inside pocket
of bis coat she grseped a photograph; on
of n very beautiful young woman. Mrs.
Weber fainted. Her worst fears seemed tc
be realized. When sbe recovered she was
angry. Sbe awoke her busbuud, but sud
denly cbanglug hi r mind, did noteny a word.
At eight o'oloak sbo suddeuly said to blm

which was of great Importance to them
both.
"Now, I do not want yoa to think I nm
angry or Jealous," sbe is alleged to have

"I know, but I was detnlucd by cl"-uui-stances
over which I had no lnlluenu , '
"Perhaps thnt Is so, and perhaps It is
not, replied Mrs. Weber.
. Perhaps I did wrooi'," she continued,
"yet I dou't thluk so, I eul through your
pockets last night and I lound I fouud

And she flung trie photograph nl blm.
Later, neither Weber nor his wile appeal
