WASHINGTON. July, 28 (Special Tele
Kiam.)"RepreaeotatlTfl' Stark . of the
Fourth Nebraska district la In Washington
today on buelnefa connected with the. War
department. Judge Stark came to the cap
ital for the purpose of aecurlng the trans
fer of Robert and Albert Kaempfer of Ris
ing City, Butler county, to the same com
pany In tie Sixteenth United States reg
ulars, now on duty .In the Philippines, The
two young men are aons of Albert Kaemp
fer, editor of he Rising City Independent.
Robert, tbe elder of 'the two boya, has
been suffering from a very severe attack
of camp diarrhoea and baa written a num
ber of pathetic letters home stating bla
condition. These tetters alarmed the. fam
ily and It was determined to seek for bla
discharge. Better counsels, however, pre
vailed, Judge Stark advising that an effort
be made to bring the two boys together in
aome eae company and have them assigned
to a regiment along the aeacoast, ao that
Robert might be able te recuperate from
bla disease. In consequence' of thla sug
gestion Judge Stark came on to Washing
ton and today presented the reasons why
Robert should be transferred to bis
crotner a company, ana tnai u possioie oe
sent to Aparrt, Philippine Islands, where
the government maintains an exceptionally
fine hoapltal in conjunction with the beat
ice plant In the Islands. As the matter Is
a legal ene,. the Judge advocate general has I
taken It emder ' consideration, and ' after
ascertaining-the status of Kaempfer lt Is
believed will effect the transfer desired and
order their transfer to the seacoast, where
the younger may look after hla elder
brother. Judge Stark expects to' receive
favorable action on hla request before his
return to Nebraska. I'
Incidental to an explanation aa to what I
brought mm to Washington at this time, 1
be atated that there was little or no poll-. I
tica being discussed in Nebraska at prea- I
ent. That the only thing farmera wanted
to do at this time waa to harvest their
wheat and save aa much of their oats
which are greatly lodged, as possible. He
aatd that the promise of a fine corn crop
waa most encouraging, that Nebraeka never
preaented In lta history ao beautiful a
picture aa now.- Tbe Judge refused to die
cuss hla chances for re-election, except to
say, that he thought condition were good.
Ha will leave for Nebraska Wednesday.

Commission- Having la Charge the
Work at Improvement Make Its
WASHINGTON, July 38. The Mississippi
River commission, having In charge the
work of Improvement of the river from the
mouth of the Ohio to tbe head . of the
passes, has submitted Its annual report to
the chief of engineers. The estimates for
the fiscal year, 1904, are:
Continuing work under the commission,
$2,000,000; protection of banks at Carutbere
vllle, $30,000; harbor at Memphis, Tenn.,
150,000; harbor at Greenville, Miss., 2B,000;
preservation Of works at Delta Point, La.,
125.000; harbor at Natchea, Miss., and VI-
dalla, Lai, $100,000; rectification of Red and
Atchafalaye rivers, Louisiana, $30,000; bar
bor at New .Orleans. La., $300,000.
On the first of the present flscal year
balance-of $2. 636,264 was available for lm
Drovement of the river. A statement la
mtit) twiner-that since the organisation
0. .... Commi,ion. in 1879. until the ores-
ent time, the total amount appropriated
for that , portion of the Mississippi river
Under the commission has been $43,672,693.
The report speaks of the success .of the
dredging fleet and recommends an lncreaae
ln the number and capacity, by which the
present standard depth, nine feet, and 250
feet wide at low water, can be Increased to
advantage. . The report further etatea that,
owing .to tbe failure of any appropriations
since 1900, work haa been restricted to such
repalra of existing work aa were possible
with the balancea on hand.
The report shows that the ImoTovements
heretofore made are generally In a aood
condition, but In placea . damage baa oc
eurred by reason of lack of funds to carry
out existing project. Speaking partlcu-
larly of the levees, the report says
"The eublo yardage of the leveea lost by
caving during tha last year baa been about
three-quarters of 1 per cent of the amount
already In place. The average amount an
nually loat for the last six years, during
which time records have been kept, la not
In excess of two-thirds of 1 per cent. It Is
probable that in tha near future this rate
of loss will be temporarily Increased, owing
to the proximity of caving banka In many
localities. In several eases the question
of a new location la complicated by the ex
latence of old rivers, lakea or other ob
structlons In the Immediate rear of. the
It la ahown that In the construction of
levees along tbe Mississippi river during
the last year the' United 8tatee baa built
$81,679 cublo yarda and the states by which
tbe river flow 1,478,883 cubla yarda.
in connection with the surveys of tha

SEATTLE, July 28. After traveling for
months across the bleak ateppes and
froxen mountains of Siberia, Harry De
Indt of tne London Daily Express Is ready
repon tnai a railway pracucany connect-
ng the eastern and western hemispheres
a feasible project.
Mr. De Wlndt left Paris December It last
and arrived In Seattle by way of Bering
strait, the Yukon, Dawson and Bkagway this
afternoon on the eteamer City of Topeka.
His party encountered gTeat perils from
hunger and cold and attribute to the pres-
ence of Americana in northern watera the
tact mat tney are again saio in a civuisea
country. The party consists of Mr. De
Wlndt, Viscount De Cllnchamp Bellegrade,
George Harding, who has been with the
leader of the expedition on many Journeys
the last sixteen years, and Stephan Ras-
torlgyeff, a Cossack. The Cossack aalla
a .1 - V.-1 .aaa. Lt. a. ... I a I.... I
aayoreaa tomorrow lor nia native tana.
The expedition, from which the party is
returning, was undertaken at the Instance
of Alfred J. Pearson, owner of the London
Express, Pearson's Magazine and other pub
llcatlona, who wished to have a represents
tlve take a trip by land from Paris to New
York, a feat which bad not before been
accomplished. Mr. De Wlndt asserts that
the overland Journey waa much mora has
ardoua and difficult than be expected and
that he would decline the trip again.
De Wlndt left the Transslberlan railway
at Irkutsk." From there a course almost dl
rectly north was followed to the borders of
the" Arctic ocean. The trail waa along the
Lena river, which Is one of the great rivers
Of the continent of Asia.
On the Lena a great And of gold has been
made, but none but Russians are permitted
to mine lt. Much of. thla part of, the trip
waa made behind reindeer. Near tha mouth
f the river dogs were procured and they
hauled the four men the remainder of the
way to Cane Rast.
Prosperoas Cltlea Extinct.
The route traversed waa covered to
depth of aeveral feet with anow, the road
was untraveled and rough, dangera lurked
almost every turn. The members of
the) expedition were treated with kindness
but In many placea the natives were suf
fering from famine and disease and could
do little lt anything for. their visitors. Many
prosperous cities exist on the map along
the route which the leader of the party
had aelected. When these points were
reached nothing but a few scattered huts
and half a dozen, wretched natives were all
that remained of their greatness.
Tha people of all of the northern part
of the continent have been attracted to
the coast nearest America, aa there they
can trade with the American whalers and
aubslst more easily than in their Inland
towna and villages.
For aeveral hundred miles directly east of
Bering stralta Mr. De Wlndt found many
settlements of tbe natives and. here he
found food and assistance. Had he not
met the Siberians here be believes be
could never have reached Bering atralta,
and ao bla rescue la due to American
traders. ..Discussing the -.railroad project
this evening, be said:
T. should srv that the railway project Is I
feasible,1 though no railway will follow the
emit w. tr.rZ it h.
dred miles to the south and through a rich
mineral country. Privately I received the
say exactly what caurae It will take. The
only difficulty which la ln the way Is In
transferring at Bering atralts. The great
distance makes a tunnel impracticable nni
the miles of Ice floe constantly moving
render navigation almost lmoosslble. How
ever, this problem may be solved and then
the project will be assailable and undoubt
edly aucn a road will be bunt.
