Tbe St. Louis RtyvKir thinks that Mr

Sory. Tbe evening of inly S ami part of the fol
lowing day ware Burnt in making an exam
ination of tbe Oraod canyon, through which
we bad been in imminent peril of making aa
unexpected and Involuntary trip. We found
It to be a crooked paaaage of about three
quarter of a mile ia length, in which the
water turns ami twiata between two rrpsn
dlcular walla ot basalts rock forty feet high,
confronting each other at a distance of about
130 feet Midway of tbe canyon it a gigantic
basin, in which the stream usee and whirs,
around aa If beaiutiug to make tbe flnal
plnngv through the lower half of the way.
Kur purpoar of navigation tbe southern half
of the canyon is the more dangerous, because
near tbe entrance the walls rapidly approach
each other, aud the stream surges through
the contract! cbanuel with terrific force.
We were glad, however, to observe tbat
there were no rock to be encounter!, and
that tbe only real danger to the raft would
be that of atnkiug against tbe sharp angle
ot tbe winding walla of the canyon. From
miners at Juneau we learned that the canyon
can be "run," and we made up our mimia
tbat we would run it
We hint lieen told, however, that cargoea
are always portaged, and that only rafta,
without crew or caro, are allowed to drift
through. Even skill and boats are portaged
to the smooth water below, and skids have
been erected with a windlass for the purpose
of raiaing boats from the water to tbe top of
the bluX The trad is on tbe right aide of
tbe canvoa, ami ia well beaten by the passage
of hundred of miners, wbo have used it dur
ing tbe past tea years.
Aa the City of I'aris ia a stanch and wall
built raft, which ran easUy be enlarged and
atrengtbeoed, we determined to make tbe run
with crew and cargo on board. Instead of
spendiug time and labor in making the port
aga. Having come to this conclusion, we in
dulged in a little sport with rod and line. In
the great whirlpool near which our raft lay
we observed grayling leaping out of the ed
dies after tbe small brown millers with which
the air was filled. Taking the hint, we of
fered inducements to tbe finny beantiee to
make other experimenta. In a very short
time I bad landed fifteen of them, and some
of them weighed over a pound. I found that
a brown hackle answered a very good pur
pose and flUbed with it most of the time. De
Uaks bad an odd experience. lie had a
leaden sinker about twelve inches above bis
fly which seemed to attract particular atten
tion, tbe grayling leaping fully a foot out of
tbe water to catch it, and taking no notice
whatever of the fly. Presently be lowered
the sinker to the fly, and with excellent re
sults, as he presently bad seven fish on tbe
bank beaiJe him.
We spent tbe anniversary of national inde
pendence la repairing and strengthening tbe
City ot Purls, adding two heavy aide logs aud
staying her with four additional and well
pinned croaa beama. The hurricane deck waa
strongly braced and the most removed; and
when daylight waa passing into twilight.
White, who Is a voterau river miner, de
clared our raft to 1st tbe stoutest be had ever
By:.".a m , July 5, the cargo was ail
aboard the raft, well aecured and carefully
wrapped in tent cloth to protect it from the
Wat ui wbk.li it waa wn to be eipiMed. The
raft was towed several feet up tbe bii Iponl
basin, so aa to got her uear the main curreut;
tba lines were cant off, w. Juuiped atioerd and
the descent was begun. The bow and stern
oars war. vigorously plied as we swept into
the tumultuous water, and with head on the
City of Paris went boldly on ber way, turn
ing the corners of the canyon with perfect
ease and grace, and shipping hardly any
water, so tbat our freight was quite unin
jured. Six minutes from our start we shot
out of the canyon without starting a log or
touching an obstruction.
TBS V. KITI HORSE RAP! Da.
When a portage la made on the right of
the Grand canyon tbe rafts have to be cap
tured at the mouth and reloadnd for a short
trip of only two miles to tbe opsite side of
the stream, at the bead ot the White Ilorse
rapids, where another portage is always
made. Tbe White Horse has an evil reputa
tion. It ia two miles lung and obstructed by
broken rocks, dividing the atreain iuto nar
row channel, the lax peat of which u near
the left bank, and is aixty feet wi,le. From
tbehwidof the Orand canyon to tne foot of
the White Horse is a dUitauce of tour mile-,
with a fall of thirty-two feet, most of tbe de-
sreat being in tbe hite Horse. To run
bite Horse is seldom attempted, even with
an empty raft, and never w ah a boat. The
government explorer, Lieut. Schwatka, did
Indeed make tbe passage on a raft without
cargo; but, thongb piloted by several stout
man, be did not paat uuscatbed.
Three Frenchmen were leas fortunate.
Ilavu.g portaged their boat around the
Oraod canyon, tbe'y failed to get acruaa tbe
stream to take the next portage on tbe left
bank, and were drawn into tbe auction of the
rapids, which whirled them into the torrent
Tbeur boat was iwamped, tbe cargo was loat,
and two of the three men were drowned.
Tbe third managed to make his way to Ju
neau. A brief account of this tragedy we
found written on a board and posted on a
tree at tbe foot of tbe White Horse.
J?ot withstanding tbe bad reputation of
these rapids we concluded, after a careful ex
ploration, to make tbe run with crew and
cargo on luard our raft, so as to save the la
bor of a portage and establi-b the reputation
of the City of farla aa the stitncliest raft
adoat. Uur luat, however, was left lshiud
to be afterward "snubli.! down" at our Isus
ure. Having so dts tded, our raft was cast
off an i got Into the curr-ut, and dowu w.
went over tbe mile Mrrtcb, tteudily holding

Washi-coton CiTT, Dec 11 ruireoerita
tivas of the whole civilised world were pres
ent ia tbe hall of tbe house yesterday to wit
Bess the orecooniee in commemoration of the
inauguration of Oeorge Washington as pres
ident and the assembly of the first American
Ootigrena. The buaineaa done in the bouse
waa of no particular interest, as everybody
waa awaiting tbe hour for the ceremonies to
begin, and the galleries were crowded long
before that time. The usual notification was
sent to the senate, and then tbe assemblage
waited expectantly for tbat body to appear,
together with tbe other ilistinguhjied visitors.
Owing to the death of airs. Harrison's sister,
Mrs. Hcott Lord, none of tbe White House
family was present except the president, but
Mrs. Wanamaker and daughter, Mrs. Hal
ford and daughter, Mrs Blaine and daughter,
and many other ladiee were seated in that
part of the galleries reserved for officials and
their wives, while Mrs. Heed, Mrs Carlisle,
and other ladies were observed in the mem

mediately the chief magistrate and Secre
tary Blaine, followed by the other member
of the cabinet except Urn. Noble, were seen
advancing to the seats in front reserved for
them. The chief jutie and associates of
the supreme court in their robes, the senate
of tbe fnited States, several department offi
cers, the diplomatic corps, the pan-American
congress resplendent in gold lace and
brilliant uniforms, the marine conference,
followed in ardor, and were seated. Behind
all tbnw the members of tbe house and about
twenty governor of states took their places,
and everything waa ready for the ceremo
nies to begin.
The Vie. President Presides.
Speaker Reed then resigned his gavel to
Vice President Morton, who called the as
sembly to order and then the Marine band
struck up "Hail Columbia." At tbe end of
tbe music Chaplain Butler, of the annate, of
fered prayer aud Mr. Morton anuouueed
that Chief Justice Fuller would deliver an
oration. The chief justice was escorted to
the stand by Senator Hiscock and Repre
sentative Bay lie. and after the applause with
which be was received bad caused Mr. Fuller
began hit address.

There were obvious dlfflcultiee surrounding
the first president. The fear of arbitrary pow
er took particular form la reference to the
presidential office, which had been fashioned
in view of the personal government of Oeorge
III, rather than on tbe type of monarchy of tbe
English system, as It was in principle and aa it
is la fact. Aod this fear was Indulged, notwith
standing ths frequency or elections, since no
restriction sa tore-eligibility was Imposed upon
The Maa for the Hoar.
No fear, no jealousy could be entertained of
him wbo bsd indignantly repelled the sugges
tion of tha bestowal of the kingly power. Nev
ertheless, while there could he no personal op
position to the nnanlmnns choice of tbe people,
and while his a (suability at the criej waa one
of those providential blessings which, in other
instances, he had so often insisted bad been be
stowed uuoa the nation, tha fact remained that
the situation waa full nf trial and danger and
demanded tbe application of the highest order

Instinct with the recognition of thehnmaa

tbe general genius of tbe government waa
thoroughly permeated with ideas of freedom

to exert Itself.
Ths Speaker's Peroration.
After reviewing at great length tbe ap
pointments made by Washington to tbe cab
inet and tbe supreme bench the chief justice
analysed Washington's farewell address,
showing how he foreshadowed tbe great
ness of tbe nation its commercial and politi
cal prosperity. The civil war was, be said, the
moat searching test of the wisdom and last
ing quality of our form of government In
eonoluston ha said:
And so tbe new century may be entered upon
la the spirit of optimism, the natural result,
perhaps, of a self-confidence which has lest
nothing in substance by experience, though it
baa gained in the moderation of ita impeto

The Rather Tough Story That a Pros
pector Tells of Doings la the Klg Horn
ChyE!xt Wy. T., Dec 13. A prospector
who has just come back to civilization for
the winter brings the story ot a wholesale
lynching in tbe Big Horn basin, a garden
spot in tbe mountains of Johnson and Fre
mont counties. A reign of terror was termi
nated by the shooting of several men and the
hanging of eleven. A las leas band led by a
desperado called Kettle Jack was the cause
the trouble, and punishment was meted out
to the entire cutthroat gang. Jack and four
partners appeared in the basin eighteen
months ago equipped for prospecting, but
they never moved a rock nor turned a shovel
ful of earth. The fellow had reached an
earthly paradise and lived in luxurious ease,
hunting and fishing.
Thejr Begin Business.
Being reinforced by kindred spirits, they
established a veritable mountain castle, build
ing a fine log house. In a deep valley was a
block fort at the head of the entrance leading
to the rendezvous. Tbe settlors quietly grum
bled when the intruders commenced slaugh
tering beef, but objected when horse stealing
commenced. A squad of desperadoes would
drive off the stock from tbe range and dare
the owners to interfere. Frequently there
were flghta, in which the settlers were always
worsted. An old man and his two grown
sons attempted to retake their bunch of
horses, but were cruelly maimed, killed, and
left with a brutal note of warning on each
Fate of Two Enterprising Men.
The gang came to own tbe Iwisin, which is
lot) miles long by sixty widx, and baa 400
people. Indignation meetings were called,
but Jack and his gang were always in the
majority at those gatherings for tbe public
safety. A reward ot $1,0(10 waa secretly
offered for this Robin Hood's bead, but be
beard of it, and defied all attempts on his
life. Two men undertook the mission, do-iila-ratoly
planuing the uio&ssination ot Jack,
but neither ever got a shot at him, and the
heails of both were publicly planted on poles
in front of the basin store and saloon.
Jack Takes a Wife.
Once Jack aud a goodly number of his
followers came down and ordered a dance.
They required tbe settlers to stack tbeir
arms, and each desperado wore two six
shooters in his belt When the grim merry
making was at iu height Jack called for tbe
justice of the peace and married the belle ot
the lavsin, a girl of great beauty, whose fam
ily was v salthy before tbe ravages of tbe
gang. Jack couciliatexl the father by prom
ising to restore his property, but the mother
and lirother would not consent to the union.
while the girl said nothing. Jack saved his
life by setting a watch over the brother, for
tbe young fellow was in tbe act of stabbing
tbe outlaw in tbe back when he was shot
down. A big debauch at the robbers' strong
hold celebrated the nupt utls of the chief and
the death of the kinsman of the brido.
Ambition O'erleana Itself.
Jack and bis followers had plenty of food
aud supplies and oonsiiierable money, and
many of ids followers were mated with
women deonved from settlements. They
longed for some new iliyeriossand the brain
of the kor -evolved a brilliant plan of es-
taldishiug an independeut government in tbe
basin with himself as dictator. He sent
couriers to unfold the project to the settlers
and to aonounis that a public meeting to
perfect an organisation of the government
would be belit The people then ret-lled in
earnest, and word passtsi from ranch to
ranch that a descent would be made on Ket
tle castle at once. Horsemen fully armed
and with ropes gathered to the numlier of
150 liefore Jack could stem the tide of indig
nation. An old artilleryman improvised a
howitzer and chains and scrap iron were
collected for ammunition.
Attack on the Koblnrrs' lien.
The ha-stily organized army of determined
men moved iim the enemy at once. Jack
and his gang were in waiting. They were
uitrenche.1 in the block fort, and bad planned
to mow down the settlers as tbey filed into
the ravine. 1 be howitzer was planted on an
elevation and its deadly charges sent right
tiehind tbe enemy breastworks After a
few shots bad killed several desperadoes, and
there was no sign of ceasing, consternation
seized the outlaws and tbey made a disor
derly retreat The settlers, led by tbe father
of Jack's wife and the murdered boy, were
in hot pursuit Several men on either side
were shot from their horses, but the riding
fight continued without abatement for three
entire day. So soon aa an outlaw was
caught ba was hanged or shot
"Law aad Oder" Triumphant.
No mercy was asked and none was shown,
A few of the younger fellow were filled
with fear when tbey came to die, but the
majority of them simply fought until over
powered, and then met their fates with stub
born indifference. Eleven were hanged and
afterward buried, in many cases before tbe
bodies were cold. Tbe chase was abandoned
on tbe third day. Report differ aa to
whether tbe leader was banged.
A Couple of Jack's Feats.
Jack was a Texan who fled to South
America after killing two men in the Pan
handle Both murders were unprovoked. In
once case he insulted a woman at a ranch
and shot her husband for interfering. In tbe
second instance be and bis gang held high
carnival at a dance bouse. Tbe proprietor
finally induced tbem to leave, but they soon
returned. Tbe keeper then said tbe man
wbo entered the place must walk over hia
Ua d body.
"That s easy enough," said Jack, as be
shot the fellow dead.

IN DREADFUL PEEH
A Narrow Escape from Steam

AWTUL SITUATION 0? fCTTR MUST.
Caught t te Embrace of a Frightful
rate, Tbey Are Barely lesllvered In
Time One of the Unfortunate Terri
bly and Fatally Scalded Result of the
Hunting of a 8teampipe Saved by One
Maa' t'oolneea and Nerve.
Milwaukee, Wis., Dec. 11 Enveloped ta
a scalding cloud of steam four men escaped
death by only a miracle yeetenlay at tb
new station of the Chicago and Northwest
ern railway. A defective steam pipe six
inches in diameter burst under enormous
pressure, imjiruioning tbe victims in a small
room with the temperature so bot that hu
man life could not be preserved for a second.
The new station U just completed, with the
electric lighting apparatus and other ma
chinery to be yet pUceL At 3 o'clock yes
ten lay afternoon four men stood in the engine-room.
One was L. A. Carr, superin
tendent for Leonard & Izard. The others
were his assistants, C W. Case, Mike Win
tors, the engineer, and Herman Boeteher,
an employe of the E. P. Allia foundry.
Boeteher is an expert, and aa the Allia com
pany had placed tbe steam machinery and
engine in the building, he w as there to assist
in its adjustment
A Fatal Flaw In the Pipe.
It had been noticed that the great steam
pi)ie ktiding from the boiler was leaking.
From all outward appearances the piie was
firm and substantial, but there was a fatal
flaw in the iron just where tbe threads were
cut The men were standing near each other,
and one of tliein bail xskeu of the defective
pipe. He w as pointing with his finger toward
the massive iron tube tbat hissed and sput
tered as a jet of vapor force.! its way through
tbe closely cut threads. Suddenly there was
a loud report, and the room was filled with
scalding steam. The pie bad burst and,
forced from the great Isnlcr. the hissing va
por was being poured into the narrow room.
Successful Mroircle for l.ile.
One breath of tlie withering boat meant
instant death, and the men knew iu By in
stinct they dropsd prostrate ou the stone
floor, while the room beanie of the same
temperature as a steam boiler. Tbey were
in a scalding sea of beat that must soon
cook their flesh until it fell from their bones.
Tbe vapor was so dunse that it was absolute
ly impenetrable to the vision, and to find the
door seemed an impossibility, but Superin
tendent Carr was a brave man in great dan
ger. His thoughts were as quick as tb
lightning he manipulates. With his face on
the stone floor be kept tbe scalding vapor
from entering his lungs and crawled to tbe
wall. Immediately his hand touched tbe
door-post, and the next instant he sprang
into tbe ch ar air, shout ing to bis compan
ions with the first breath be drew.
Itoelclirr's Horrihle Condition.
Unable to stand after tbe terrible experi
ences ot a single moment of time Superin
tendent Carr fell unconscious just outside of
tbe door. A volume of white vapor envel
oped him as it burst from the little room
through the doorway. His companions had
hoard his voice, and fell upon his prostrate
txsiy as they staggered from the engine
room. One of the men was more unfortunate
than the others. Herman Boeteher had
stood nearest to the steampipe and was the
last to leave the room. Hit. flesh was oooked
until it fell in ribbous from his body. His
fingernails dnipped off before the physicians
could reach him. Boeteher ia at tbe Emer
gency hospital and cannot live. Knrswin
tendent Carr escaped injury, but C. W. Case
was Iwdly scalded. His hands and face pre
sent a horrible appearance, the cooked flesh
falling off while the surgeons were dressing
bis wounds. Kngiuevr Winters is also badly
scalded, but will recoier.
