A steamer ' from' Alaska which ar
rived at Port Townsend, Wash.,, reports
that it is feared that ten miners have
perished from hunger or cold. Last
April Morris Orton and S. O. Wheelock
of Juneau, accompanied by eight other
miners, left Juneau on the schooner
Charlie for Lituya Bay, taking eight
months' provisions. The party was to
return in November. Nothing being
heard from them great uneasiness is
felt, for they were in the frozen regions
where It is impossible to get food or
help. The prople appealed to Capt.
Maynard of the United States warship
Pinta at Sitka, to go to the relief of the
missing men. Maynard declined on ac
count of the great risk to the ship. A
mass meeting was keld at Juneau, the
Governor appealed to, and a relief ex
pedition was organized. It was. sent
out in sailing vessels with supplies in
search of the lost miners, but there is
little hope of rescuing them.
Henry de Greyer, a well known
contractor of San Francisco, and a '
friend were driving in Golden Gate Park
at an unlawful speed. Officer Harper
ordered him to stop and not doing so
the officer lassoed the -horse. The offi
cer asserts that De Greyer tried to draw
a weapon and he in self-defense . drew
his own revolver and fired twice, one
bullet going through De Greycr's shoul
der, entering his lungs. On the other
hand, it is said De Greyer tried to drive
on after the horse was- lassoed, paying
no attention to another order to halt,
and that the officer then deliberately
shot him. De Greyer is seriously
wounded. Officer 'Harper has been
placed under arrest.. . .

Hv ft recent deeislon of the Sfecretarv

Another Coal Excitement.
Cari. Johnson, at Yankton, iu the
name of himself aud associates, lias
made mineral filings upou four entire
sections of land, two iu Yankton County
and two in Turner County. He claims to
be a coal-mining expert, and says that
there is an abundance of coal in this sec
tion if it can only be brought to the sur
face. This land has been filed upon
before, but the filings were recently
canceled. The local officers declined
to receive tilings without further inves
tigation of titles. This will revive the
excitement of a year ago about coal.

Pierre from Chicago. He is preparing
a circular to send members of the Leg
islature asking them if they will como
to an extra session without expense to

will be called. It seems to be the gen
eral opinion among' State officials that
the chances for an extra session are un
for the liemoeratlc Convention.

Brick walls will not stand id the air
This fact was completely established in
Omaha. An excavation had been made
for a three-story brick building. Ad
joining the hole was a one-story build
ing occupied by Gring& Hartley, under
takers. The workmen" were arranging
to take down the wails Of tho one-story
building, and in doing so dug the earth
from beneath a large portion of it and
neglected to brace it. The natural re
sult was a collapse of the building. Six
men who were doing the excavating 'es
caped unhurt but Undertaker Gring
was caught in the wreck and very badly
bruised. The building was a complete
wreck, and the undertaker's stock of
coffins is ready for. a fire store sale.
Sheriff Kyd and his deputies were
startled when they went to feed the
prlsouers confined in the county jail at
Beatrice to discover that Richard Daw
son, recently bound over for burglary,
was missing. Dawson's absence was
puzzling because of the fact that he ap
peared at breakfast time as usual. An
examination of the jail failed to reveal
auy place of concealment or place of
escape, and the conclusion was reached
that Dawson's escape was made in tho
forenoon when the jail was being
cleaned, possibly by hiding behind a
door until a favorable opportunity was
afforded for escape without being ob

At a meeting of the projectors of the
