NO TRACES OF FRANCIS STEELE
Harry Markham came out from
Roosevelt Saturday. He left here the
1 •"**h of April and returned the ir,th of
•luly. making a trip of three months
exactly. He spent the time packing in
the mountains, and reports that the
outlook for a big boom in the Thunder
mountain mining district this fall Is
exceedingly good. Mr. Markham says
that the usual after-the-Fourth-of
July-dull-season has not affected
Roosevelt this year and that business
is good and plenty.
Harry says that he spent four days
hunting for Francis Steele, the unfor
tunate man who Is supposed to have
been lost in the mountains several
weeks ago. He snys they found no
trace of hts hody and no marks of
Steele having been in that section, save
a lot of provisions near the trail. One
thing that excited the suspicions of
the searching party was the finding of
a black silk handkerchief to which was
attached a flsh hook and line, which
was lying on a pile of drift wood in
Rig creek. Mr. Markham says that the
fish hook was fastened ns near the
center of the cloth as possible and that
the whole was found at a place on the
creek where human beings seldom fre
quent. The report to the effect that
Steele had stopped at Lynch's cabin on
Ramey creek and had partaken of a
meal of victuals, has been denied by
Mr. Markham, who reports that it has
since developeh that a couple of
miners, friends of Mr. Lynch, ate there
instead, during the owners' absence,
and .that they left the gloves there

"ME CLARK" STORY DENIED.
Special Correspondent to the Chroni
nicle Pronounces it a Fake.
Standpoint, Idaho. July ]9.-,Editor
Chronicle: Of all the attempts that
have been made to Juggle the early day
history of the northwest and befoul
an honored memory, none reaches the
depth that does the story sent from
Missoula during the past week, to the
effect that an Indian woman, "Mary
Clark." a direct descendant from the
famous explorer, was at that place in
consultation with Congressman Dixon
with proofs tending to prove that she
is the granddaughter of William Clark,
her father being a son born to the wife
of the explorer, an Indian woman,
whom he married in the Loo Loo valley
when the expedition was en route to
the Pacific. That this woman accom
panied Clark to the coast, and upon
his return was left with her tribe on
the Bitter Root, where the father of
this "Mary Clark," Tzl Kal Tzae, was
born—a story that has not a scintilla
of evidence to rest upon.
It is true that someone presented to
the Montana Historical society a pho
tograph of an Indian who was without
doubt a mixed breed. That this pho
tograph bore a legend to the effect that
he, the Indian, claimed to he the son
of Explorer Clark, and I have been in
formed by those who knew him that he
was in the habit of striking his breast
and theatrically exclaiming, "Me

No Motor Trains for Idaho.
The motor train promised for the

will not be put on. says the Capital
News. When the new car waa here a
few weeks ago, the officials intimated
that the Bolse-Meridlan road would be
one of the places where experiments
would be made. It was said at the
time that the Short Line people were
having several of the motors built,
and that as soon as the exhibit at the
Portland fair was concluded, the cars
would be put on at various places along
the line. The officials have since con
cluded that the heavy traffic on the
Bolse-Nampa line can he handled best

that the exhibition trip of the attrac

(Special Correspondence. )
Lewis and Clark Fairgrounds. Port
land, Oregon. July 18.—Today the par
ty of Idaho editors, which h"' been
seeing Oregon and the fair sine* last
Thursday, broke tip. the scribes going
three ways—some on to California,
some to the Sound cities and some
hack to the "ease." Their six days In
the Wehfoot state have been lively
ones. The first afternoon a reception
was heltl in the Idaho state building
in their honor: the second, the Ameri
can Typefounders Company, the r-| a ke
McFall Company and the Pacific Paper
Company took them on a trolley ride
around the city; the third, they went
over the exhibits in detail, hitting the
Ttnil at night; the fourth, they re
mained at the exposition or t">ok in
the side trips around Portland; Mon
day, they went to the Willamette val
ley and were entertained by the Fnl»m
Press Club and by the Commercial
Club of that city, and today they said
goodby until the Idaho Press Associa
tion gets together again in 1903.
About 46 editors and business office
men came in on the editors' special, a
majority accompanied by wives or rela
tives, making quite n formidable parly
in all. Several press associations have
been here since the exposition opened,
notably 300 members of the National
Editorial Association and the Califor
nia newspaper organization, hut none
has made a better showing than the
Idaho contingent. The meeting of the
Idaho Press Association, convening as
an official body, resulted In the unani
mous passage of a resolution to ac
complish all possible in the papers of
the various members to promoto the
fair. In an interview A. E. Gibson, of
the Caldwell Gem State* Rural, said'
"I believe It is a snf? statement that
ns many Idahoans is Oregonians. In
proportion to the population of the two
states, will visit th? exposition; !n
fact, about everyone in Idaho that is
financially able will be here. Most of
the visitors from our state will come
in snyill parties, however, choooug
their own time instead of taking ad
vantage of the few spec'll excursions
to he run. Rv the end of July they
will be here in thousands."
Little more can he done to improve
the Idaho building for lit - reception of
the throngs expected during August
and September from that slate All
the displays have been complete since
the first week of the 'air, -xo*pr the
horticultural exhibit. The appeal ivy
Superintendent M. J. Wesseis to Idaho
fruitgrowers has resulted in a number
of fine shipments being received, and
consignments of lilgh-elnsr fruit are
expected until the exposition closes.
