out by Frank C. Rider, who cunc down
on the steamer Humboldt, after having
sient five years In the Yukn. He does
not believe there will be any deaths from
starvation, thouirh he agrees thai f o, d
will be scarce. Lack of shelter, he con
siders even more Imoprtant, as a condition
to be decided this winter, than famine.
As to the mining outlooK, he c"-ebircs
that fcS.UX'.uw will be taken out tnls wi-i-ter
from the claims on Uo.innzi and
Eldorado creeks, while from Blrh, Miller
and Mlnook districts will be washed out
"There Is no sense In becoming elarmel
over the prospects of a food shortage in
Klondike." he said. "The fact ihat tho
romiKiny stores at Dawson Lave been
closed has not such nn awful dgnirlrance
as might at first thought be Imagined.
They were shut up with the Idea of
checkmating the speculators who would
attempt to make a fortune oft the sale
o' provisions at fabulous price. A man
would go Into the store and buy S25.0M
worth of grub. When hunger began to
make the miners desperate and the store
had nothing left to sell, the speculator
could have things his own way. It Is
not pruiosed to allow this. The nvnors
have determined that any man selling
food must do so nt ti.i company prices.
These are fixed and will not be allowed
to go higher. Where so many people
arc together and can Interchange, food
goes n long way. An outfit that would
last one man a year can be made to hold
out eighteen months by lu.U-lous trad
ing. Do not understand that I am ad
vising anyone to go there this winter.
I am simply staring these tacts to en
courage those who have friends In the
north. The lack of shelter will. In ray
opinion. le re?inslhle for more suffering
In Klondike than will famine."

DECIDES FOR PLAINTIFF.
San Francisco. September It (Special
to the Astorian.) The famous case of
Angus vs. Craven, by which the execu
tors and heirs of the late Se.tMtjr James
G. Fair sought to quiet the title of
Mrs. Nettle R. Craven, a school teacher
of this city, to two pieces of prop-riy
on Sansome street and Mission street,
valued at $1,S.WM. was finally decided
today by Superior Judge Slu-k in favor
of the pluaintlff (Angus) and uic int-r-venors
(Mrs. Oelrichs. Miss Fair and
Charles Fair). Judge Slack said there
was no doubt In his mind that the pencil
will and the letter of republication were
forgeries, and expressed the opinion tnat
the deede were stamped with the same
The decision was evidently unexpected
by tlve defendant's counsel, nlu ..skeJ
for and obtained a slay of proceeding
for 30 days. Neither Mrs. Craven ncr
her daughter were in court when tht
case was decided. When questlc-ncd as to
what. If any. action they roposed U
take In the premises, the plaintiff's attor
neys declined to discuss the suh'ect at
present, but It Is generally believed that
the grand Jury, now In session, will take
the matter up Immediately.
Anvlk, Alaska. August 23.( Via Seattle.
September 14.) The steamer Bella, of the
Alaska Commercial Company, passed the
steamer Hamilton this afternoon. There
are 90 passengers on the Bella, 70 miners
returning with their stakes, said to ag
gregate $500,000, and tho remainder are
prospectors fleeing from the shadow of
famine to come.
Louis Sloes. Jr., of the Alaska Commer
cial Combpany, who was on board, con
firmed all the reportshltherto given of
the shortage of food supplies.
"We have been compelled to adopt
measures," said he, "to prevent single
Individuals from cornering the food sup
plies. For this reason we have limited
the quantity of grub to be sold to each
person. One sack of flour each week Is
all that any man is allowed to purchase.
We closed our store for a time after
the Bella arrived, declining to sell to
anyone until we found out whiat we had
In stock and how far It would go toward
l-.ing the orders we had already.
We will not sell supplies to either hoU-ls
or restaurants, and, as far as possible, to
