Seattle, Peb. -L The steamer
Evangel arrived to-day from her
cruise through tbo island route. The
officers relate particulars of a most
revolt'ng tragedy which occurred on
Shaw's island, in San Juan county,
last Mouday. James Barker had gone
from his home at Friday harbor for a
hunt on Shaw's island, and when he
did not return after a lapse of ten
"days, Sheriff John Kelley of San
Juan county organized a party to
search for the missing man. They
arrived at the cabin of one Hugh
Parks, an eccentric individual living
opposite Friday harbor. They were
refused au entrance to the house and
even a drink of water.
The sheriff went to Friday harbor
and swore out a warrant for Park's
arrest, on the ground of insanity.
The men then formed an ambush and
watched the cabin. After some time
Parks was seen to emerge, dragging
the body of a dead man, xrhich was
afterward found to be that of the
missing James Barker. Parks again
secured himself in the cabin.
This occurred on Friday last, and
for three days the cabin was closely
watched, and not a sign of life within
being manifested, "Wilbur Wilson, one
of the sheriff's men, volunteered to
enter the cabin, but on finding the
door unlocked was frightened and ran
back to his comrades. He again ap
proached the cabin, but as he stepped
into the doorway the crazy man with
in shot him through the head.
The sheriff and his men waited no
longer, but saturating a bale of hay
with coal oil they rolled it to tho
cabin and fired it, burning the cabin
to the ground. A second shot was
fired in the cabin, but it is not cer
tain whether Parks shot himself or at
tho men. His charred body was after
wards found in the ruins of the cabin.
Desperate Fight Near Suakem.
London, Feb. 4.-A special dispatch
from Alexandria says: "Osman Dig
ma's troops attacked a scouting force
of British from the garrison at Sua
kem last night Eight British were
killed and several wounded." An
other Alexandria dispatch says the
attack by Osman Digina's followers
upon the scouting party of British
cavalry proves to have been a narrow
escape from wholesale slaughter. The
British, numbering eighty men, wore
circled by 5,000 Arabs, mostly well
mounted. After severe fighting the
British charged in a close column
through the Arab lines, aud suc
ceeded in gaining shelter under the
guns of Suakem. The inhabitants of
Hamdab fled to the brush upon the
approach of troops, leaving every
thing behind them. The hussars and
the Egyptians then burned the vil
lage and captured camels and cattle
belonging to the inhabitants. "When
attacked on the return, the hussars
and Egyptians were obliged to ride
desperately eastward to the seacoast,
and thence to Suakem. They were
followed by hordes of rebels on camels.
The rebel force is estimated at 50,000.
Mrs. Dudley's Antecedents.
London, Feb. 4. Further investi
gation of the antecedents of Mrs.
Dudley who shot O'Donovan Bossa,
shows that when she learned sho had
been deceived by a mock marriage to
a person in south England, Bhe be
came mad, but declined to prosecuto
her betrayer. Persons intimately ac
acquainted with her, say her love for
her children was so intense that for
along time after their deaths she
daily visited their graves. A move
ment has been started in Nottingham
to raise a national fund to defray the
expenses necessary to Mrs. Dudley's
defense. A circular is being distrib
uted, urgently requesting the people
of Great Britain to contribute to tho
fund to defend Mrs. Dudley, that
heroic Englishwoman who resolved
to rid civilization of its greatest ene
my. Every Englishman, the appeal
declares, should be ready to afford
Mrs. Dudley every legal assistance.
"Washington, Feb. L The secre
tary of the navy has authorized Lieut
Geo. M. Stoney to make a further
exploration of Alaskan waters. The
plan of the expedition is, in brief,
that Lieutenant Stoney shall proceed
to the Mare island navy yard, and
superintend the construction of a
steam lamfch suitable for making the
proposed explorations early in the
spring. Tho expedition will start
from San Francisco. The party will
be conveyed to tho vicinity of Put
nam river, in a schooner, and
further explorations will be com
menced. It is expected the expedi
tion will continue for at least a year.
Lieutenant Stoney will leave "Wash
ington on Tuesday next for San
Francssco to begin preparations for
London, Feb. 4. It is stated in
diplomatic circles that the Govern
ments of Bussia and America are
parleying in regard to a treaty for
the extradition of dynamiters.

GER3IANY IX THE WESTERN PACIFIC.
Germany keeps on annexing terri
tory in the western aud southwestern
Pacific with no more concern than as
though she were on one or her an
nual parades. She is not only taking
possession of sundry islands lying
loose about, unclaimed before by any
European power, but she has had the
enterprise to raise her flag on the
northern coast of row tminea. bo
forward has become Germany in that
quarter, that the premier of Victoria
two months ago invited the dovern
meat of New South "Wales to join in
a protest to tho home government
against the German designs upon any
part of New Guinea. To this invita
tion the latter declined to rospond
favorably on these greunds: First, it
is not known whether the recent
action of Germany is the result of an
arrangement withtho British imperial
government; second, if such arrange
ment exists, the terms of it are un
known; third, the possibility of ex
tending the .British protectorate over
New Guinea so as to include I ho shores
of the island from East Cape to tho
German lino of occupation; and
fourth, as to whether, as a counter
poise to the German occupation, Lu
land may not have determined to oc
cupy all the islauds which command,
from a strategical point of view, tho
whole of that portion of tho Pa-
cinc. I' or these reasons the govern
ment of New South "Wales declines
to take any steps ia questions of
such gravity and complexity, serious
ly involving, a3 they do, the relations
of the colonies with England, and
her relations with the European na
tions." Upon the receipt of satisfac
tory information from tho home gov
ernment, the government of New
South "Wales will be prepared to co
operate cordially with the other colo
nies as to what mav be considered
Meantime the agitation at Mel
bourne and throughout the British
possessions of that portion of the
Pacific increases, A memoraiidtim
drawn up by tho premier of Aus
tralia, Sir James Service, and ad
dressed to the governor of Victoria,
summarizes the condition of affairs
in this language: "Australia is not
allowed to act herself, and the Impe
rial government will not act on her
behalf. Meautimo Australia has to
stand by and see territories, the pos
session of which sho regards as es
sential to her safety and well-being,
pass to another power." Mr. ser
vice says, in this connection, that
cherishing as he does the connection
between the colonies and the empire,
ho cannot sufficiently express his
disappointment at the want of re
sponse to tho aspirations of the col
onies displayed by the Imperial
government And the murmurings
against the inactivity of the homo
government are deep and continued.
It is held that inaction openly invites
foreign powers to come and take pos
session of lands in which none are so
interested as the communities of Aus
tralasia. All the while Germany is
busy at work annexing, raising her
flag on new territory and colonizing.
