STORM CONTINUED THREE DAYS
Reign of Terror Prevails on Account
of RoM Holdups and Robberies—
Men Bnndbnnned In Broad Day
light and Valuables Taken—HuaU
ness Houses Entered.
Port Townsend, Wash., Oct 14.—
Nome has again been visited by a
storm, according to advices received
here today by the steamer John S.
Kimball. The storm commenced on
the night of September 26 and con
tinued for three days with increased
fury, and as a result every lighter
that was anchored off Nome is ashore
and the government tug, Captain War
den, is on the beach. While the storm
was almost as severe as the mem
orable storm of last year, the damage
was slight, owing to there being but
little shipping in the harbor and the
waterfront was better protected. The
most serious damage will result from
the delay in getting lighters afloat so
they can be used in discharging the
large number of steamers due at
Nome, and some fears are entertained
that they can not be repaired in time
so that cargoes can be discharged in
time for vessels to get out before navi
gation has closed. . The only loss as
a result of the storm thus far reported
occurred after the storm was abating.
The schooner Abbie Deering sailed
in and Captain Stevens of the schoon
er Prosper, which was wrecked at
Cape Llsburne on August 26, and
Tracy Robertson attempted to go
ashore in a ship's boat. Before they
had got a great distance the boat
capsized and both men were drowned.
A reign of terror prevails at Nome,
holdups rad robberies being of night
ly oçc-inence. Men are being sand
bagged and robbed in broad daylight
when caught in lonely places and
sluice box robberies are frequent and
several mines have been robbed of
from 9600 to 92000 .
Business houses have been entered
and even women walking the streets
are made victims. On September 29,
two men entered the store of Mrs. S.
M. Hovey, and at the point of a pistol
forced her to give up $500.
The Discovery claim on Anvil creek
has again distinguished Itself. On
September 14. $1652 in nuggets was
picked up and on the 29th it yielded
nuggets weighing $1792.
Nome will have winter communica
tion with the outside world by means
of a stage line. Norman B. Smith
is at the head of the company and he
recently arrived at Nome, bringing
with him 50 head of horses and a
large number of dogs, and proposes
during the winter to run stages from
Nome to niiauma bay, a distance of
800 miles, carrying passengers, mail
and express. Along the route there
will be 35 relay stations. Illauma bay
can be reached by steamers during the
entire winter.
The Kimball brought down 355 pas
sengers and $800,000 in treasure. The
passengers report that all steamers
from Nome until the close of naviga- '
tion will be taxed to their utmost ca
pacity in bringing out passengers and
that many will be unable to secure
transportation.

Willemstad, Island ef Curacoa, Oct. 14.
(via Hay tien cable).—Advices received to
day from Maracaibo under date of Octo
ber 10 say the Venezuelan troops are en
trenched at various points on the penin
sula. A majority of them are in the vi
cinity of Maracaibo. The Venezuelan sol
diers, being practically without commis
siarat, are compelled to live on the coun
try. The result is lack of food supplies
of any kind, and a consequent increase
of hunger, distress and suffering among
the soldiers who have no shelter. Sick
ness is spreading rapidly among them and
they have no medical attendance or medi
cine.
The Guajari Indians are becoming more
incensed against the Venesuealans on ac
count of the outrages committed by the
latter and have mutilated over a score of
Venezuelans who have fallen into their
hands. These advices concluded by saying
that fighting there aeema improbable.

Big Elk Gored Him.
Helena, Mont., Oet. 14.—To prove an
oft repeated boast that the bull elk con
fined in an enclosure at Central park was
afraid of him, Joseph Coufal of Helena '
entered the gate armed only with a four 1
pronged pitchfork. The elk immediately
charged him, and his pitchfork proved
ineffective as a weapon of defense. The
elk knocked him down and gored him
again and again in the thigh and all over
the body. Samuel Billard, who had gone
to watch the feat, tore off a fence rail,
twisted it in the elk's horns and drove,
him off, but not until he had received a
wound in the leg which will lay him up
for several days. |
Coufal was dragged away and doctors
summoned, but before they reached the
park he had died of concussion of the
brain.
