not a soul to toll the story. During the

Intel vali tlnough the blinding snow Htoim , n
thtee-masled schooner conltl bo seen about
Hlx miles southwest ot Pranklorl. Her poles
were almost bnio ami thu deck seemed

In violence and the seas were mowing every
inoinunt larger when darkness settled over
the face of the lake. Help was asked Irom
the life savingstatlon at Manlsteo , but It was
Impossible for a tine to llvo In such n
alo. Alter great trouble the life having
htntlon six miles north of hem was
icnfhcd anil the apparatus liauled down tlio
const by a tew volunteers , o\cr steep hills ,
winding mines , trcii trunk.s and heavy
BMOW drills , and pelted by drifting snow and

ter at Hcirlng Creek at 4 o'clock this motn-
-mile struggle against tlio
eluiuents. The vessel was totally biokun up
and with the cargo piled up on the beach ,
everything being completely destroyed.
The broken masts , bhrouds , lunibor and
debris all were mixed up and piled up
together. Captain Mathews thinks she must
have had her anchor down and pounded to
pieces on the outer bar. One body was
iouiul , that of a man thirty years old , with
black hair and sandy mustache. In the
pocket ot his eoat was a letter bearing the
addiess "William Lauroy. 11)1 ) Madison
street , Chlcaco. " His face was badly
jammed and his liands lacuiatcil.
The vessel's yawl , with the name
Muiiehannee was ne.iiby unlnjmed. it is
thought she had a crew of nine men. and that
Mio broke as soon as she struck. No other
bodies have > ct been dlscovored.
Another vvieck was dlscoyeiod two miles
south , vvheio the same chaotic wreckage was
seen by Iho 1'ieo 1'iess coiiespomlont. The
entire stern of the schooner Marionette , ol
Kaelne , WIs. , was discovered. At
a neighboring farm house was a bruised
and battered sailor witii lacoiutod
hands from which the llesh was shipped and
Ids feet weie badly swollen. Ho Is C. W.

Austria \Vltt Inslsi on Maintaining
the Herin ) Treaty.
Pr.RTii. Nov. 10. ( Special Cablegram to
the Br.p. . | Count Kalnoky , lmpcil.il mln-
h.ter I : for foreiitn affairs. In closing the ilebato
on the budget yesterday before the commltlee
oh the Austrian delegation , icfrrrod again at
length to the Bitlgat Ian question , lie said
the Imperial government's policy was to
uphold as long as po 'iblo the Berlin tieaty
as tlie legal bisis for the conduct of affairs In
the Balkan stales and Iho basis on which
peace I was to be pre.iet vcd. The policy would
bo pursued In order to enable thu Balkan
states , which the treaty created , to become
independent. I This pollcj , Count Kalnoky
continued , had so far succeeded that Uiissla
also fa voted now the maintenance ot statu
quo and the preservation of peace In the
Balkan 1t region. Bulgaria herself had been
the t lint to bo guilty of an infraction of the
prluclpleof 1s 1 the Berlin treaty. This was when
she aided and shared In the Hounicllan iovoi
lutlon 1 of 18V . Count Kalnoky said ho did
not 1r wlsti to reproach Bulgai la ho meiely
alluded to historical fact. If Austria main
tained t the Berlin tieaty It should not be dlfll-
ciiltforthootherpoweis todoso. IIo admitted
that t Hussla was more favorably situated with
respect to exercising greater Influences with
the I people of the different Balkan states
than t was either Austria or Hungary. Aus
tria I and Hungary , however , did nothing in
tlie I direction of extending their Intliionco
among the Balkan pconlu which did not
emauato from the Imperial government.
Consuls ( could not multiply Austiia's rela
tion I to a foreign country nor found Austilan
popularity In a foreign countiy. He re
gretted , that such a small number of Aus-
trlans traveled in Bulgaria compared to the
number of persons belonging to other na-
tlonalties who visited that country , and urged
that stuns should bo at once taken to in
crease the activity in Austria's industrial aud
commercial iclalions witli Bulgaria. There
was another icasoti why Austria should
adheie lo the policy he had enunciated. The
very coitalnty that the settlement of tlio Bul
garian question would not involve by any
means a settlement of the whole eastern
question alfoided tlie strongest incentive to
husband her resources. IIo hoped the com
mittee would aureo with him that , bctora all
else , a peaceful settlement of the present
issue should ho sought , lie recognised tlio
fact that the Bulgarians had an aptitude tor
farming a state , but ho thought Austria had
tlie right to utter a warning against too great
optimism. He admitted that the union of
Bulgaria and eastern Houmelia did not con-
lllct with either Austiia or European inter
ests but pointed out that Austria did not pos
sess the solo right to speak legarding Bul-
gaiia's light to carrying out this union. The
conduct ot the Bulgarians since indepen
dence had been accorded them vvananted the
conclusion that they would always step for-
waul to maintain and secure that indepen
Friendly KolntloiiH With Austria.

THK DIVISION or n.vuor.x.
Dakotalans who ha\e been In Washington
slnco their recant elections have expressed
the belief that the territory will soon bo
divided , and Uiat at least tlio southern half
admitted to Statehood. They look upon the
vole cast In all parts of Dakota us the
sttongest possible evidence of on almost
universal deslro lor division and statehood ,
and say It will now bo an absolute wanto of
time to have an election 10 determine any
question iclatlngto statehood , as the Issues
were so definitely drawn In the recent can
vass a.s to make the wish of the people plain
to anybody. Wherever opponents of division
and statehood weio candidates they were
oveiwhelmlngly defeated by trlendsof the
( tovernor Pierce , of Dakota , has been In

dent and other officials about alfairs of his
dominion , and to your cotrespondontev-
prcsscd tlie belief that Dakota will prevail in

as the measurocan bo given a fair hcarinir.
Although Governor Pierce lives in the local
