■Opiate*" Have Players Arrested
«»»d Are Arrested Themselves
for Watching the
/ - ■ ' Game.
REDWOOD FALLS, Minn., Aug. 19.
--«t-I»vial.)—Golden Gate met the local ball
*ca*n for two games Saturday and Sun
day. Saturday. Redwood won, 14 to 8;
Sunday Golden Gate won a prettily played
game, 5 to 4. Just before Sunday's gamo
the preachers of the city with a select
few from the different Hocks, headed by
11. Goodacre, of the Enforcement league,
appeared on the grounds and read the
state law on the subject of Sunday ball
£ames, etc., to the local manager and
vored to stop the game. They were
■without a warrant for the arrest of th»
Jilayers and were hissed into silence.
However, they remained to witness the
entire game and appeared greatly inter
ested. Today they swore out warrants
for the arrest of the local players. The
ball teams have got out warrants for the
arrest of the preachers and their follow
ers on the charge of witnessing and as
eisting in Sunday amusements.
Owing to the absence of the county at
torney, trial was postponed until to
morrow morning. In the meantime
everyone is greatly excited and the affair
Is being discussed on the corners by big
crowds. There is likely to be a hot time
before the affair is brought to an end.

Camden Pump BreaUs Down.
The water department is embarrassed
again by the breaking down of one of the
pumps at the Camden Place station, and
for the next month the greater amount
of water used by the city will come from
the West side pumping station.
This means that the people of the city
should take warning and exercise the
greatest care in the using of water.
When the pump broke down a few
weeks ago, and It became necessary to
shift back to the West sido station, ty
phoid fever increased at an alarming
rate. The records of the health depart
ment would indicate that the city water
was the cause of it.
The trouble with the Camden Tlace
pump is in the lining. This was never
pinned in, and the pressure of the water
forced It out. The accident happened
The city Is now using 30,000.000 gallons
of water dally, and the Camden station
has a capacity of 23.000,001 gallons, but
only one pump can be used now.

Special Agent John Dougherty, of the
Milwaukee railroad secret service, made
an important arrest yesterday when he
locked up a young man named Charles
Hendrickson and recovered 750 pounds of
railroad car brasses which had been
taken from freight cars of that road.
The prisoner has bren under suspicion
by Detective Dougherty for some time,
but not until yesterday when he began
to move his "plant" did the officer act.
These brasses have been taken from
the freight cars by means of a Jack

in which the car axel revolved and the
upper brass is easily removed.
Yesterday afternoon Hendrickson ap
peared with three wagons and was about
to move <his "plant," which was located
near the Milwaukee railroad shops, when
he wass urprised by Officer Dougherty
and taken in tow. Hendrickson is said
to be the leader of a gang of railroad
thieves, wiio.se specialty, however Is
these brasses. They cost all the way
from $1C to J23 each, and their loss is

War and the Bubonic Plagrne Have
Been a Severe Blotv to In
dustry In South
WASHINGTON, Aug. 19.-The state de
partment has received a long report on
conditions in South Africa from Consul
General Stowe, at Cape Town, dated a
few days before his resignation was re
ceived at the department The war and
the plague, says Mr. Stowe, have pre
vented customs officials from collecting:
the usual annual statistics covering the
trade of the colonies for the calendar
year of 1900, and, as all imports for the
use of the imperial and colonial military
forces are admitted duty free, it is im
possible to make an accurate comparison
with the trade of the preceding year.
However, the figures available show that
the Imports from the United States in
1900 were greater than those of 1899, and
that this country still stands second
among the nations exporting direct to
South Africa, and, in addition, ships a
large amount of supplies via England.
As to the general situation, Mr. Stowe
says that as the war drags along, trade
in the Transvaal and the Orange River
Colony languishes, the fields are barren
and practically no planting has been at
tempted. The plague played havoc with
incoming cargoes, there being at ono
time no fewer than 200 steaming and sail-
Ing vessels In the harbor of Cape Town,
with cargoes valued at nearly $25,000,000,
unable to discharge their goods on fhla
account. The plague appeared among the
dock laborers, and they Stopped work, the
compulsory inoculation of all persons em
ployed at the docks, aside from the in
stinctive dread of the disease, adding to
their terror. All governmental and mili
tary supplies had to be discharged^ first,
and for these reasons several American
ships were obliged to remain in the har
bor for two and three months, and a
stay of many weeks in the harbor was a
usual occurrence.
(But in spite of all this, Mr. Stowe says,
trade is not dead by any means, and
orders already have been placed for 6teel
rails arid other railroading material which
will be needed when hostilities cease.
The total value of imports into South
Africa from the United States amounted
in lftoo to $20.086.128-an increase of nearly
$5,500,000 over 1599
This does not include the Imports for
military use, nor the merchandise shipped
via England. There was a considerable
decrease in beef and flour, and in agricul
tural Implements, but the former was
caused by Australian and Argentine com
petition, and the latter was a direct re
sult of the war.
The cost of living in Cape Colony, It is
stated, has increased to a marked de
gree, and the overcrowding of cities has
forced rents .up enormously, so much so
that the various town councils are con
sidering the erection of dwellings to
house the working classes. "There is an
other handy American trick," says Mr
Stowe. is getting to be a common saying
in Cape Colony. The natives, he says, are
astounded when they view the work of
Th» *nS tUF^ mac™™ y in the fields.
The children sit in school at desks made
in America, and American pews In the
churches, says Mr. Stowe, "make poor
services less tedious/- The Imports !n?o

many on the rafts. He believes the ves
sel sank in twenty-three fathoms and
that the boiler did not explode, but that
the wood work was carried away by a
rush of water and air.
Passengers and members of the
crew who have arrived here, agree
that the losa of life by Thurs
day's disaster in Lynn canal, will amount
to sixty-five, but they admit that there
were probably five or more stowaways on
the steamer, and that the five children
known to have been on board the steamer
were either drowned or died of exposure.
So it is possible that the loss of life will
reach over seventy.
A number of passengers tell
of their thrilling experiences dur
ing the disaster. M. Blumaur,
of Portland, w>ho was bringing out
a eatchel containing $14,000 in Klondike
gold, rushed up to the upper deck when
the boat was settling by the head, and
Capt. Foote told him there was little
danger. Soon there was a rush for the
boats, and when he was boarding the
lifeboat he was afraid to throw his
satchel of gold down from the deck into
the boat before steadying down into a
place, for fear that the weight of the
gold would stave a hole through the life
boat, and thus cause the loss of the lives
of those In the boats, as well as losing
his own chances of safety. He conclud
ed to abandon his gold, and dropping the
satchel on the deck, he slid down into
the water and was hauled to the boat,
thankful to have his life saved, though
he lost his treasure.
Sam Starten, of Winnipeg, also dropped
a satchel laden with $4,000 gold, and a
friend lost his portmanteau, with $3,000
in gold In it, and each escaped to tell
the story.
One man, who had Just come out from
the Klondike (his name could not be
learned), is reported to have taken his
portmanteau from the care of the purser,
Mr. Bishop, and with the grip contain
ing dust amounting to $40,000 In value,
grasped firmly in his hand, jumped from
the sinking steamer to a boat close by,
and failing to reach the boat, he went
down, together with his treasure, to rise
no more.
United States Consul A. J. Smith, who
was a passenger on the steamer Queen,
saw Dr. Phillips, of Seattle, at Juneau.
Dr. Phillips told him that he had lost
his wife and child. The doctor insisted
that no one called at his room, but he
felt the sudden stoppage, and says that
his wife told him to get up and sec what
the cause of the stoppage was. He de
murred at first, but hearing mov
ing on deck, he got up and told his wife
to drees immediately. When they got
from their room, the steamer was sink
ing, and before they could jump from
the deck, his wife and child were caught
in the suction of the ventilators and were
drowned. Dr. Phillips was also drawn
into a ventilator, but was caught by the
head at the top and escaped being drawn
down to death. His eye was severely
cut by the ventilator. He went down
with the steamer and caught hold of
some wreckage, from which he was after
ward rescued. When resuscitated he call
ed for his wife and child, and a man
brought the body of his little girl to him.
He was left at Juneau, refusing to leave
until his wife's body was found.
N. A. Belcourt, of Ottawa, and George
Ray. of Ottawa, were asleep when the
accident happened. Being unable to open
their stateroom door, they broke out
through the window and Jumped from
the upper deck into the lifeboat.
A passenger who arrived by the Queen
says that on Thursday morning when
the tide turned it brought in a large
quantity of debris from the wreck In
cluding parts of cabin stores, staterooms
trunks, etc. The Indians looted the
wreckage, smashing trunks with axes
and carrying off valuables. On Saturday
evening a concert was given on the
steamer Queen for the sufferers and $333
was raised, which was given 'into the
care of United States Consul A. J. Smith

Chief Engineer Brownlee encountered
the captain just as he left his room, who
inquired if she was taking much water
"I told him," said Mr. Brownlee, "that
within a very few minutes she would be
under, and the captain proceeded to the
Continuing, the chief engineer said he
received telegraph orders of "full speed
astern" and "full speed ahead," but It
was absolutely impossible to carry them
out. By this time the boat had settled
to such an extent that the propeller was
out of the water, and consequently could
not work. He rushed to the deck and ex
plained the situation to the captain.
While there he saw the life boats six
in number, and the life rafts launched.
This was done very successfully.
Having told the captain that he could
do nothing-, the chief engineer returned
below, as the second and third engineers
were in the engine room waiting their
orders. He told them to get out and
save themselves,, as in a few minutes
the steamer would sink. The other two
grabbed life preservers from their rooms
and the three rushed for the dining room
on their way to the deck. But it was im
possible to reach the stairs forward The
ship was half full of water, which was
pouring in the saloon.
"We thought we were caught In a
trap." said the chief engineer, "but man
aged to keep our heads, or I would not

the stanchion and onto the deck "We

time his legs were so numb with cold
that he could not move them, and fee
was compelled to rub and pinch them
persistently to restore circulation. He
first hauled Dr. Phillips aboard, and
after much exertion succeeded in reviving
him. The two then hauled Burke aboard,
but the unfortunate man was too far gone,
and murmuring something about being
cold, expired on the raft. More wreck,
age was secured, and the dimensions of
the raft increased. The two men realized
that unless they reached shore, or were
picked up speedily, it would be all over
with them. They commenced paddling In
what they took to be the direction of the
shore. Finally, after being la the water
about an hour, they were hailed by
Purser Bishop and a boat load of res
cuers. They did not at once go to the
shore, but continued to row back and
forth in the vicinity of the wreck, picking
up here and there a body, or rescuing
some benumbed person clinging desper
ately to portions of -wreckage.
The boat was soon filled with the living
and dead and then made for the shore.
Here efforts were made to resuscitate
those overcome by cold, some of which
were successful, and others futile. Mr.
Brownlee, the mate, and several other?,
g** ijito a boa£ anj started to pull for
the TreiWw^jgfips, « two or_ three miles
away. The currfhE too strong for,

He told his story to the manager, who
Immediately dispatched two small steam
ers to the scene. ■ •■ " . •
By the time he returned, the chief said,
the little steamer Flossie had already
loaded up with the bodies of the dead,
and with this gruesome cargo, was about
to staTt for Juneau. He boarded the
steamer and arrived safely at the Alas
kan town.
N. A. Belcourt, M. P., and Gen. C.
Ray, of Ottawa, were traveling com
panions on a trip to Dawson. Mr. Bel
court said the steamer was running at
full speed, and while possibly no fog had
been encountered up to or immediately
preceding the collision, a dense fog pre
vailed when the accident happened. At
first, Mr. Belcourt did not think any
thing serious had happened, and as the
boat appeared to be keeping on its way,
he thought again of returning to bed,
from which he had arisen when the shock
was felt. Presently he heard a com
motion among the passengers and felt a
bumping motion of the steamer. On try
ing to open the door of his stateroom he
was unable to do so. Mr. Ray tried and
was also unsuccessful. The concussion
had evidently jammed the framework of
the cabin, which caught the doors like a
vise. Mr. Belcourt and Mr. Ray got out
of the window. The former returned to
procure a life preserver, but falling to
find one immediately, got out again
and, getting 1 upon the railing of the
steamer, instantly jumped to a boat that
he saw below. He was one of the last
men to leave the steamer and not more
than a few minutes elapsed from the time
he got out of his cabin first until he
made his leap in the dark. Fortunately
he alighted on the shoulders of one of
the passengers in the last boat to leave
the steamer.
Messrs. Belcourt and Ray were in th»
small boat one hour and a half, reaching
shore, which, however, was not more than
a mile away, but owing to the fog could
not be made out.
The case of Mrs. Ross Is a peculiarly
sad one. She left Victoria a short time
ago to join her husband, who was recent,
ly appointed governor of the Yukon ter
ritory. It Is only a few days since she
left her parents in this city, Mr. and Mrs.
John Mackay, with whom she has been
visiting for a few months, to take up her
residence in the Yukon territory, and a
letter received a few days ago told of
her plans for the future. It was for the
purpose of carrying out these plans that
she was on her way to Victoria', it being
her intention to purchase furniture and
furnishings for the new home of the
She left five of her children In Dawson,
but brought the youngest, an infant,
with her, together with a niece, the
daughter of her brother, living In Daw
One of the best known of those who
met their doom, was John Duncan, of
Victoria, who had just completed a trip
to Dawson, where he had gone on a
combined business and pleasure Expedi
tion. His brother, Dr. George Duncan,
haa been In Dawson some time, and the
trip was undertaken partly for the pur
pose of visiting him. Another brother,
Rev. W. A. Duncan, resides at Sault Ste
Marie, Ont.
According to the stories told by some
of the passengers, the proportion of the
women saved was small. When the sur
vivors were brought ashore some of them
were so numb and disheartened and had
so little life left in them that they begged
to be left alone, or left to their death.
SEATTLE, Wash.. Aug. 19.—A special

Tbe steamer Queen left for Seattle at
9 o'clock, carrying a number of survivors
of the wreck, and the Farrallon Is ex

Thp de;ith of Capt. Foote was very
pathetic. He remained on the bridge imi
til the steamer was foundering. When
the vessel commenced to sink, and It
was seen there was no earthly expedient

taxed for accommodations. Realizing that
his weight would work havoc there, he
exclaimed: "I see there are too many
here, so good-by, boys," and swam away.
He was shortly afterward seen to sink.
Chief Engineer Brownlee had a mirac
ulous escape. He was asleep, and was
awakened by Third Engineer Allen ring
ing his bell. He ran to the engine room.
There two firemen died heroes soon after
he arrived. They were ordered to close
the "top wheel" and shut off the water
which was rushing from the forward part
of the vessel. They tried to do so and
were drowned. Brownlee went down with
the steamer, and was standing on the
upper deck holding the top rail when
the steamer slid down by the head. He
rose from the whirlpool and grasped some

wreckage until they were picked up.
HAVANA, Aug. 19.—A meeting was
held tody, attended by a number of rev
olutionary generals and politicians, repre
senting all parties, to ascertain the prac
ticability of agreeing upon Benor Estrada
Palma as a candidate for the presidency
of the republc. It was convened at the
request of Gen. Maximo Gomez.
Gen. Sanguilly and Juan Gualb?rto
Gomez conteded that, before they could
give their support to any candidate, they
must know his political programme. The
former pointed out that Senor Palma's
recent letter to Senor Figueredo was very
brief, and that he ought to be Invited to
set forth his intentions more clearly.
Ultimately it was decided to appoint a
committee empowered to address a com
munication, asking him to state more
fully his intentions and his purposes If
elected president. Gen. Gomez was ap
pointed chairman of the committee.
