Lieut. Schwatka s Return From Ilia
Alaskan Explorations
Ao Kntrriainln k Account of Ills Jour
iirvaad tti Hardahlus I'nler-t-Advantage
to cl-
Lieut. Frederick Schwatka of this city,
the Arctic explorer, who beaded ao ex
peditioa to Alaska last spring, wag ia
Des Moines the oiber day on hts return,
aod he submitted to an iotemtw at the
hands of a Register reporter, and that
paper says:
The fatigues of a summrr spent in ex
ploring the unknown recesses of Alaska
and the dangeit incident to it hive made
their impression even upon the robust
frame of Lieut. Schwatka. He bewails
the loss of about 60 pounds of good
flesh, which has been lost on the route,
but which be confidently hopes to regain
under tne pleasanter conditions of life in
a more temperate zone. The expedition
of which be was a part left the confines
of civiliz ttion in Alaska on January 26
It was composed of Lieut. Schwatka, Dr.
Hayes of the Uni.ed btates
geological survey and a guide,
besides the 10 Alaska Indiana
They went up the Takon river, hitherto
unexplored. This river was only navi
gible for canoes about 100 miles, wbea
tbe party struck across country and after
traversing 80 miles in three weeks' time,
discovered a lake, whicb was named Ab
Klaio, or Big Lake. This lake is about
10U miles long. From the lake the ex
pedition went to the Newberry river, the
scenes of the lieutenant's explorations in
1883. The rapids were shot, and finally
Fort Sclpiid. in tbe Toukon, reached
early in July. Tbence they went 225
miles southwest to the district where tbe
Indians stated enormous quantities of
copper abounded, but this, like many
others of the stories which
have been believed by travelers, proved
to be without foundation, as no copper
was found. The country in which is ttis
Copper river is exceedingly rougr,, aud
tbe Indians abandoned the parly. The
bat'gafce ws the refore dropped, ana the
party proceeded, but could make but little
headway. Ftnal'y after two weeks of
this kind of traveling human endurance
was at an end, and a canoe wsb mule
from tbe canvas bags and launched. Toe
Copper river down whicb they descended
is a most turbulent stream, and the
rapids tx'end for a distance of nearly 85
miles. At list Prince William sou-d was
rescbed and then Sitka.
Tbe results of the trip are said to have
been vry satisfactory from a scientific
view.
Theatrical .
One of tbe best plays seen hereabouts
list season was Dan'l Sully's Lew play,
"Tbe Mi lionaire" which comes to the Bur
tis opera bouse, Davenport, tomorrow
evening, and which should certainly draw
a crowded house. The New Yoik San
says of this performance: '
Diu'l Sully's New York production
of "Tbe Millionaire" was greeted with a
house tbat was large aod friendly, and
its tendency to applause was so honest as
to avoid any suspicion of ore-arrangement.
One scene that will create publb
favor represents thebuUdragof a railroad,
laying tbe last rail, driving tbe glden
spike; laborers who work actively
shoveling real dirt, hatuim ricz real iron
rails and boring real boles in real iron; a
real strike of Irishmen and Italians;
Sully as O'Brien in disguise appeals to
them by sign and word of . Mullingar.
This episode, possessing both pictures
queoess and dramatic strength, was
heartily applauded. ' Mr. Sully of course
impersonated tbe Irish character nd
pliys bis pSrt with earnestness, fidelity
and much discretion. The comic scents
he interprets excellently.

the story of the marriage of Moynier and

father, who is now in jtil awaiting trial
at Fort Smith, I. T. Then the Globe
says: "All three nf the above were resis

h's wife is well remembered, also tbe time
waen he burned a house in Ripids City."
