Hr did the unusual by marrying a fore igner. and declared himself proud that he bad violated the con * ntions of Egypt’s dead ae*s However, the Khedive bad failed to reckon on the conventions of Aus trian wnnen. She objected to his maintaining a harem, and win n the wily port attempted to practice haremism in s. cret, the European wife packed up her belongings and some of his belongings and started for Aus tria. The Khedive treated the affair merely as one of those thing's which are to be regretted until he dis covered that a lot of valuable state papers were mb>ing. then he raged. By means of ari envoy, lie meekly so licited his wife for tne papers, with out which he could hardly run old Egypt. She bluntly refused to give them up. Being in no shape to force a return of the valuable documents, the Khedive uttered Pharaoh curses on all European women and returned to his harem. STURT THE EIGHT 'OAK I.AXI), Cal., Jan. IS.—--Hiram W. Johnson, pr* s> nt gov ernor of Californ ia, opened his campaign for re-election today He is a Progressive and was Roosevelt's running n ate in the last presidential campaign. Francis J. Iie ney, the famous federal prosecutor of grafters, was looked on as a likely candidate also, but he withdrew in favor of Johnson. Honey will try for a seat in the Fnited States senate as a Progressive, it is reported, to suc ceed the present Republican incumbent, George C. Perkins. Johnson being' considered a stung man, California is f expected to be one of the battle grounds on which the new party will test its strength in the next elec tion, and will to a large degree deter mine how much of a force Progressiv isrn will he able to exert in the elec tion of a president in 1916. Governor Johnson plans to stump the state later in the year and will probably be assisted by lleney who will campaign for the senatorship. The term of the governor which is for two years expires next January. RESUME SEARCH PLYMOUTH. Eng.. Jan. IS. — The search for the lost English submarine which went to the bottom of White st nd bay while on a trial run a few days ago has been resumed and It is expected that the missing little ves sel will be located within a short time as the rescue ships are now fully equipped to carry on their work. The ' submarine was manned by 11 men when the accident happened to the machinery. For a time it was thought that the vessel and Its crew would soon he saved but owing to the delay which occurred before the rescue could he at tempted the vessel was lost and the men are now certainly dead. Soon after the submarine went out of com mission telephones were connected and the imprisoned nun were able to talk with those on the surface and assured them that all was well and that the oxygen was working satisfactorily. When the rescue ships arrived the vessel could not be located with the grappling hooks as the undercurrent had carried the submerged boat away from its place of landing and although the search was conducted for two days no trace of the boat could be found. The fellow who follows his own inclinations doesn’t always have a good pacemaker. ADOPTED GIRL IS Jan. IS.—The noteworthy legal 1.attic- for the millions of Ztg l. r, the d< a-1 baking powder magnate, was formally begun in circuit court today. Florence Brandt, the adopte 1 laughter of Zigler, is suing for a half interest in the $ 1 :>.000,0o0 estate. As the stakes are large, the best le .»1 talent obtainable is employed on both sides, and the precedents to be established in this case are eagerly look, d f.«r by members of the bar. Zigler adopted Florence Brandt wh'-n si • was a little girl He took her into his luxurious home, educated her, and, because he was childless, con sidered the affection she returned as a full return for his care of her. But t lie millionaire could never sup dan t in the mind of the child the love she bore her real father who was l poor workinuman. All the wealth ami finery and seclusion with which Zigler could surround the adopted laughter, failed to erase from lor mind the happy memory of a poor in dulgent par- lit. She visited him oft < n. in spite of the remonstrances of her foster father, until, completely discouraged at not wholly winning her childish affection, the millionaire re nounced the adoption When he died, he left her out of his will entirely. It is contended that Zigler, once naving taken upon himself the respon sibilities of a parent, could not re nounce them. He accepted the posi tion of a parent, and a parent can •lot leg-ally renounce the responsibili ties of a daughter. Florence Brandt, now sixt'-.-n years of age. is suing for half interest in the rich estate. It is reported that one of her at torneys, whom it is expected will make the most of the addresses in court, is the famous Clarence Harrow, who is considered one of the greatest law yers in t Fnited States. The public c'.os#dy watching the proceedings, and a final verdict for Miss Brandt Is the only one which is likely to prove popular in Chicago. COItDOVA, Jan. 18.—One of the late arrivals in this city from tin- Xelchina district made the trip here in five lavs, taking the old trail from Matan uska country to Copper Centre and going from there to Chitina. The recent arrival states that the Chitina Xc lchina trail is in fine condition and that the majority of those who are going into that district are using that road. It is estimated that there are about a hundred men working in the Xelchi na now although there are about as many more who have been in the dis trict and have gone out to get sup plies and are now on their way hack. Since the good finds were made last fall much prospecting has been done at no new discowries have been made recently. Most of the work is being done on Olaf and Crooked creeks where many holes are being put down. The latter stream has a very promis ing outlook and it is predicted that much better finds will be made there soon, although the present prospects are not encouraging. ColiDOVA, Jan. 18.--The steamship Mariposa arrived lure Friday from Seattle, bringing a large shipment of ! mail for Fairbanks and the Interior. Part of th-e mail matter consists of the mail which was carried on the wrecked steamer Jeanie which left Seattle December 18th. Most of the first class mail carried on the Jeanie arrived here over a week ago but the Mariposa brought the balance of the shipment, most of which consists of second class matter. Xo mail was lost in the wreck of I the Jeanie as the officers of the boat succeeded in saving all of it though some of It was badly damaged by water. It was taken back to Seattle by a returning steamer and after be ing sorted again was sent North. Tli** | Fairbanks mail left chitina yesterday i morning. CORDOVA, Jan. 18.—According to advices which were received from the Xelchina last week, much claim jump ing has been taking place in the new district lately. Especially since New Year have the claim jumpers been active, in some cases the claims being staked two or three times. Commissioner Leo. J. Shaw, form erly editor of the Seward Gateway who recently received the appointment for the Xelchina precinct through Judge Fred M. brown, arrived in the district on January 3rd. and was im mediately besieged by a swarm of lo cators who wanted to have their pa pers placed on file. Commissioner Shaw made a quick trip to the new camp taking the old government trail from Knik up the Matanuska river. A bluff may prove an effective substitute for the real goods. IN 30 YEARS ON PACIFIC [OUST roKTLA.NI>. Ore., Jan. 18.—One of the worst storms in history is now sweeping the entire coast and is of ! particular severity lo re. A ninety I mil*- gale, which lias been blowing all ! day has eaus* >1 much damage and the ! storm here is the worst recorded in j thirty years. Advices from along the coast are to the effect that the storm ! is worse than has been known for 1 many years and much damage is re ! ported. All shipping has been tied up and those vessels which were out at sea are at the mercy of the winds and waves. The shore is strewn with 1 wreckage and it is feared that many vessels are destroyed or lost. It is expected that th#* loss will reach the $3.000.ooo mark and unless the weath er mod* rates may he considerably larger. From the towns in the interior it Is learned that the wind is as severe as it is on the coast and many towns an- in complete darkness through the I power lines being interrupted. The wind carries everything before it an 1 many telegraph poles are sw*pt down like toothpicks. SAN FRANCISCO, Cal.. Jan. 18.— Much damage Is being caused through out the state by the fierce storm which has been rasing for the last two days. All of the California coast is strewn with wreckage while many vessels are reported missing.

IS. — After a two weeks' investigation the special board of inquiry appointed to investigate t * i # * circumstances of the wreck of the Jcanie. which took place in Queen Chari ♦;«*. Sound off Vancouver Is law- .. month ago, have rendered their : re; it. The committee found that no one was responsible for the acci dent which was due to the elements but found Captain Redfern, mate of the Jeanie, who was at the wheel at the time of the accident, guilty of neglect of duty. From the evidence gleaned by the hoard it was found that Captain Red fern had failed to call the master of the vessel during the fog as instruct led and as provided by the regulations For failing to heed his instructions, | Captain Redfern has been suspended from service by the board for a period of four months. The steamship Jeanie is a total loss and having been given up by the owners is now left to the underwrit ers. TO STAMPEDE CORDOVA, Jan. 18. — George C. Hazelet, who was in charge of the construction crew which was sent out from Cordova to build t lie Mc Carthy-Chisana trail returned to the city yesterday after a short business trip to Seattle. He states that he found in the Spirit city much interest manifested in the new camp and that many of the old-timers there are pre paring to visit the district before the winter is over. Especially among the former Alas kans who are wintering there, all that can be heard is about the Chisana <>r the Nelchina. Those who were at first inclined to go to the Chisana hut who have been discouraged by the recent reports received from there are now optimistic regarding the Nel china and are preparing to make a trip to that region. From what he heard while in the States he estimates that several hundred miners will prob ably come North to either of the two camps before tlie snow melts. PARIS EXPLORER CALLED BEYOND PARIS, Jan. IS.—Professor Foureau, the most prominent of French Afri can explorers, is dead here at tlie age of 64. He was a scientist, and he gave every effort of his life to the advancement or science. For many years he traveled in Africa, follow ing up some individual theories and incidentally verifying, by investiga tion, the statements of other men of science. His contributions to the world’s store of knowledge are large and varied. Foureau was a Darwinian adherent, an evolutionist, and yet he disagreed with the famous scholar on a few or les minor points. Foureau believed in the cataclysmic theory of evolu tion, though he is not the only one. He believed that the so called “missing links” were not missing at all in na ture; that a white rose and a red one growing near to each other would, as is well known, produce a cross, or a variety different from either. This is called the cataclysmic theory, and to carry on his research in this direction. Foureau spent much of his life in the wilder parts of tha Dark Continent. MEXICO CITY, Jan 18.-^It is re ported on good authority that Presi dent Huerta is planning to recall Minister Frederico Gamlma to the For eign Affairs office and that Querido Moheno will again be appointed to the position of minister of finance which he held some time ago. Gamboa was very successful in Ids dealings with American representative N. O'Shaugh nessy which makes it appear that Huerta is thinking of resuming his Peace conference with the United States. The Catholic party which is the leading faction in Mexico and Mexican politics threatens to withdraw its sup port and to obtain vengeance because of the arrest of the leader Somemera, who is being held in prison on a flimsy charge. The Catholic papers were extremely hitter because of the change in Huerta and their stories be came so scurrilous that Huerta has had all of the unfriendly publica tions suppressed. As the situation in the capital is becoming so serious friends of the ■ dictator are urging him to quit before , it Is too late, but he refuses to heed ■ h ir solicitations. LONDON, Eng., Jan. IS. Again has Queen Mary asserted her authority and changed existing conditions at Buckingham palace by issuing a de cree to the effect that henceforth all ladies of the household are prohibited from selling to the royalty if they have an interest in business firms. It is alleged that the timeworn cus tom has now become so pernicious that there is much talk in official ircles of the graft made l*y the wom en of the royal head’s palace. It is expected that several of the servants will resign as they are thus b i ri • d of the ir only purpose of be ing employed by the royal pair. The women connected with mercantile es tablishments by receiving a com mission for all business directed to the firm they represent have increas 'd the needs of their royal employers end have been able to niakl fortunes through this side line. MILWAUKEE WILL HAVE MILWAUKEE, Jan. IS.- -The politi •il situation in Milwaukee is in a great muddle as the result of Mayor Lading announcing that he will he a candidate for re-election if he has to run independent. Lading was tlie fu sion candidate who defeated the So cialist, Seidel, at the last election by a small margin. Some of those influ- j ntial in having Lading chosen at the last campaign, want a different I candidate this time. As it was a | tight pinch to beat the Socialists the j last time, with two candidates against j them, the Socialists are bound to win. I The Socialists of Milwaukee are j ••leeful over the prospects of tlie com- , ing campaign, and declare that they can win against the combined forces j of opposition. Lading insists that it i will be himself or no one from the opposition camp, and so the political stew boils hotter and hotter. Berger will he a candidate for election to congress from the Milwaukee district, and he too appears confident of vic tory. L CHARGED WITH CRAFTING WASHINGTON, D. C\, Jan. 18.— >uite a large sized sensation was sprung in this city yesterday when it was announced that the House com mittee on expenditures had unearthed a charge of graft against one of the former cabinet officials. The com mittee accuses Charles Nagel, secre tary of commerce and labor in the Taft cabinet of securing graft in the protection of the seals in the Alaska waters. It is charged that the form er secretary winked at tlie destruction of the fur seals in Alaska although larg^e sums were secured to protect them from unlawful killing. Charges of graft are also made ■cainst former high government of ficials and officials of the North America Commercial company. From tlte information already given out it is learned that the government offi cials were working a division of the illegal seal profits. On the strength of the showing made by the committee on expenditure it is probable that congress may order an investigation of the affair. SUFFRAGISTS SCORE-THE OPPOSING CONGRESSMEN WASHINGTON, D. C.. Jan. 18.—Be cause the lower house refused to sanc tion the standing committee on equal suffrage, the suffragists are now storming about the city and have come out in strong terms against the congressmen who opposed them in their latest move. However, they are nlanning another step in congress which they state will make up for the loss of the committee on suffrage. FOR A FARMERS’ CREDIT_SYSTEM WASHINGTON, D. C., Jan. 18.— Another step in the legislation pro gram as planned by President Wil- j son was made known here today when j it was announced that a special mes- I sage on rural credits would shortly i follow the special message to congress on tiie matter of trust legislation. The President proposes to have con gress take up the matter of establish ing a credit system for the American farmers as soon as the trust ques tion has boon taken up. From present indications congress will have a busy summer and the results will mark the Democratic session as one of the most conspicuous by the results obtained. The special message dealing with the regulation of the trusts which J President Wilson has been working on since his return from his vacation at lass Christian, was completed last week and was then discussed with the members of the cabinet. The mess age will be delivered to both houses of congress by the President on Tues iay. Although no details have been given out to the public officially it is known that President Wilson urges stricter government supervision of cor porations dealing with public utilities and advocates the extermination of the practice of the interlocking of di rectorates. The Democratic trust plan differs from the Roosevelt and Taft system in that the corporations are permitted by the government as long as they serve the people but as soon as the trusts endeavor to monopolize the industry, the government will step In and supervise the business for the corporation according to the principles as advocated by the government. It has long been known that Presi dent Wilson has a penchant for as sisting the farmers of the country who under the present system in vogue are discriminated against in • i a way that they are laboring under the greatest of difficulties. II^ proposes to establish a credit system for the men of the soil such as is now in use in Europe and which will enable the farmers to obtain funds with which to carry on their Industry and to harvest their crops. When the new rural credit system is a law of the land the farmers will be able to secure credit at any of the govern ment banks, and government funds will be at the disposal of the agricul tu ralists. SEATTLE CAPITALIST WANTS SENATORSHIP SEATTLE, Jan. 18.—J. E. Chi 1 berg, the wealthy Seattle banker and capi talist who lias many interests in Maska has shied his hat in the ring. He has announced himself as a can lidate for the state senatorship. It is announced that he reached this de cision after much solicitation by his many friends who are anxious to see him enter the race and who have assured him a strong support. He will make the race on the Republican ticket. SASSARI, Sardinia, Jan. 18.—Ellen lilies, an American author and artist, was found dead in her room in a hotel here, having been shot to death some hours before. The Italian police of the city are making every effort to discover the perpetrator of the deed, but so far only half-founded theories have been evolved. Her people and friends reside in Philadelphia, and a wire to them has not helped to i b ar up the mystery. The dead girl was noted for her cleverness and beauty, and though she had many suitors, no suspicion has fallen upon more than one of them, and he could hardly be called a suitor. He is an aspiring artist, and in a ca.sua way became acquainted with Miss Gilles soon after her arrival on the ilse in the Mediterranean. He be came fascinated with the American writer, and it is said that his atten tions were not at all encouraged by the girl. Whether or not this man's jealousy brought her to her death is a question the police will solve short ly. HE ERUPTIONS ARE p CTEO KAGOSHIMA, Japan. Jan. 18.—Nu merous subterranean explosions have been felt here today. Professor Omo ri, seismologist, predicts more quakes with the attendant revival of subsid ing volcanic action. The stricken dis tricts are aswarm with pillagers who have dared the dangerous regions in the hopes of finding rich loot. The robbers can go where the soldiers will not, and no order obtains in the im mediate vicinity of the active vol canoes. Kagoshima is in the hot mountain regions in the southerly part of Jap an. It is an old volcanic district whre mineral springs of many kinds are numerous. This mountain coun try is also the birthplace of several notable Japanese, among them Admiral Togo who swept the Russian fleet from the seat in the late Japanese Russian war. It is one of the most beautiful parts of Japan, and at the same time the most treacherous. It 5s estimated that nearly 10,000 people ave lost their live* In the recent eruption*. FORCED OUT OF WASHINGTON, D. C.. Jan. 18.— Rx-Senator George Turner of Wash ington state was forced to resign from the International Joint commission to day on account of Ids anti-Wilson at titude in the Baltimore Democratic convention where Wilson received the nomination. Turner did his best in the convention, it is reported, to have Champ Clark of Missouri nom inated, and of necessity he threw his strength to Tammany. Because of this, he found it unpleasant to remain on the commission and resigned. The former senator departed imme diately for Seattle, from which point it is said that he will open a cam paign for the senatorship from Wash ington. his home state as a successor to Wesley T, Jones the present incum bent. He must reckon with several others who are out for the place, and a lively race for this office Is looked for. As senators must now he elect ed by popular vote, the candidates will be obliged to go before the people ■ n their records. As a candidate for the senatorship, the former senator 1ms a good record as a public official beside his record in the senate. At one time he was an associate justice of the state supreme court. When his term in the senate expired lie was appointed by former President Roosevelt as a member of the Alaska Boundary Tribunal and later represented the United States in the dispute with Great Britain in the Northeastern Fisheries argument.

Sharkey was arrested today charged ! with killing Spindler and will be held for manslaughter. Since the death j of another prizefighter in the ring ef forts are being renewed to have boxing barred from the state.
