What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

WHERE PEARL BRYAN MET HET-, FATE ixPEDITION TO MEET NANSEN A RACE FOR RICHES Little Town of Marcus Is Alive With Prospectors. WAITING THE WORD 10 .START When the Presiaent signs the Hill there win Be a Rush for coveted Marcus, Wash., Feb. 17.—Yesterday the town of Marcus, which for the past half century nas peen a struggling fron- tier trading post, watt teas than 100 in- habitants, today numbers several hun- dred anxious men impatiently await- ing the opening of the Colville Indian reservation to exploration for the pre- Ci01113 metals that abound in the moun- tain fastnesses of that great region, that nembers almost as many acres as the state of Rhode Island. Marcus is the mecca of the prospector and mining man, for it is from this point that much of the travel diverges northward to northern Colville reserva- tion and Boundary creek, B. C., points. Over these routes are well beaten road- ways to the interior, through a country that is otherwise almost impassable on account of the great depth of snow— from two to three feet. It is on the line of the Spokane Falls & Northern rail- way, and the first point reaching the reservation, being exactly five hours' ride from Spokane. The only telegraph office on the border, excepting at North- port, 40 miles farther up the river, is established here, and it is very neces- sary that the man with a fortune in sight, in the way of mineral claims on the reserve, be here to get the first flash of intelligence of the president's action on the reservation bill, and the first start to the elaorado, just over the Columbia river. On the arrival of the train from the south Saturday a select few prospectors dropped off at the station, but not enough to create any degree of suspi- cion. Some of them quietly took their departure across the river, ostensibly bound for Grand Forks, E. C., which is now attracting considerable attention as a mining center, but today when the Spokane Falls & Northern train from Spokane steamed into the depot the wonder and surprise was complete:there were over 100 men, of all sizes and *wades of color, who alighted to the long platform, all bound upon seeing the other side of the Columbia river. Tons of baggage, in the shape of grub boxes, rolls of blankets, packages of shovels, picks, hammers and other uten- sils too numerous to mention, followed suit, and fell indiscriminately upon the platform. There was a period of hust- ling and unrest about the depot for a quarter of an hour, and the crowd left for the river, less than a thousand feet away. In the afternoon many from the north dropped off the train from Nelson, in consequence of which the anxiety is intensified. Many have come from the surrounding country, and the camp fires among the pine groves along the river for two miles, reminds one that an army is in camp. The hotels and boarding houses are taxed to their fullness, and extra accommodations of that character are not to be had at any price. It is said that there are a number of men on the ground who have made ar- rangements for receiving tha news as quickly as possible after the signing of the bill. Every specie of river craft —aside from steam vessels—will be pressed into service. The coveted land across the border Is covered with snow, so that prospect- ing, for the present, is almost out of the question. Those who have discover- ies already in view know where the ground is and what is in it will reap a reward. All others will reap a whirl- wind of disappointment, to say nothing of the hardships and distress that will follow in the wake of the rush. How- ever, there are certainly some great mines over there, if any part of what is said is the truth about them. BOUGHT ANACONDA MINING STOCK More of Those Valnah!c securities to He lakes' to Europe. New York, Feb. 18.—It is rumored that Kuhn, Loob & Co. have taken an- other block of Anaconda mining stock for sale In Europe. It is said at the time the last block ef 300,000 shares was taken a further privilege was secured by this firm to have the first right to take more stock at the price to be fixed by the owners. The owners have not yet fixed the price. The owners are the Hearst estate, who still hold 900,000 shares. AMELIA RIVES-CHANLER TO MARRY Noted Authoress Is to Espouee Prinoe Trouhelzekol. New York, Feb. 17.—The Herald this morning says: The interesting rumor was circulated In this city that Amelia Rives Chanter, the well known novelist, was about to be married again to Prince Troubelze- kol, and that the ceremony would be celebrated within a very few days. FRENCH CABINET AND THE SENATE Former Ignores the Vote of the Latter Taken Saturday. Paris, Feb. 16.—The cabinent has de- rided to ignore the vote taken In the senate yesterday, which a repetition of the vote of the body on February deprecating the irregularities disclosed in connection with the Southern railway scandal and demanding a searching in - quiry. — the Negro Who Prose the Suite) Leads the I olice to the Scene. Cincinnati, Feb. 16.—The excitement in this city and vicinity over the atroe- teus taurder of Pearl Bryan has been intensified by the astounding develop- ments made last night. People had time for reading the papers today. The feeling tonight is one of the silent but ready sort that portends latent dan- ger. No outbreak is anticipated, and a successful one here would be out of the question with the present efficiency of the police and the military. While the feeling is of the explosive sort, the external restraint is sufficient to prevent an explosion. Every other man one meets expresses the opinion that short work shoure be mace of these men. The thinking and strictly law- abiding element in Covington and New- port have confidence in the courts and believe in depending on the courts to mete out justice to the prisoners. It la now probable that they will be takee to the Covington jail, which is very strongly guarded and well situated to resist a siege. The detectives have a clue to the sur- rey that was emplot ed to carry the human tigers and their victim to the scene of the slaughter. They think they have found the surrey on Walnut hill and they are trying to identify it. Cir- cumstances that give weight to the tes- timony of George Jackson, the negro who drove the surrey to Fort Thomas, are the high name he bears among all his employers. Major Widdekind of McGregor ave- nue, Mount Auburn, the negro's pres- ent employer, says: \George H. Jack- son is highly intelligent, very reticent, has no bad habits, is competent, trust- worthy and efficient as an employe, and is an active member of Zion colored Baptist church.\ A procession of carriages containing policemen and reporters started out at 1 o'clock to Fort Thomas last night. George H. Jackson drove the leading carriage. The procession struck the murderer's route at Vine and Thhei streets, and, with George H. Jackson for a guide, followed it to the bloody ground. A halt was made at the New- port bridge toll booth to seek another link in the awful chain that binds these men to the guilt of Pearl Bryan's mur- der. Toll Collector Tarvin said he re- membered the surrey driven by a col- ored man passing over the bridge about 1 o'clock on the morning of February I. It contained a man and woman and there was a white man with the negro driver on the seat. The procession was led by George Jackson by a long circuitous route into the Alexandria pike near Fort Thomas. Aften driving a short distance, Jackson stopped just where a blind lane set out from the road and stopped. \Here said he, \is where they took the lady, telling me to turn the car- riage around and wait.\ Where he stopped in the darkness last night was about 200 yards from the spot where Pearl Bryan was found dead on the morning of February 1. When the negro described the strange noise and the sounds of a scuffle in the leaves and bushes, along with his own sudden fright and flight, the by-standers shud- dered and almost imagined they could hear the rustle of the leaves in the struggle of Pearl Bryan for her life. RUSSIAN MARINES MARCH TO SEOUL King of Corea Under Their Protection— Ant -Japanese Ministry. London, Feb. 16.—The Times will print a dispatch from Kobe, Japan, to- morrow which says: News from Seoul, Corea, proves that Russia made a remarkable coup on the night of February 10. On that night 200 Russian marines, with a 3e1d gun, were landed at Chemulpo and marchesi to Seoul. The king secretly left the pal- ace for the Russian legation, whence he proclaimed his ministers guilty of treason. Two of the ministers were ar- rested and the other fled. Tai Won Kan, the father of the king. is a prisoner at the legation. An anti- Japanese ministry was then formed. A bitter feeling has been aroused in Ja- pan. A cabinet council was held, at- tended by the military officials. It is reported that the Russian min- ister declared that Russia was not re- sponsible and that he merely afforded protection at the king's request. But it Is believed this precludes a Russian protectorate over Corea. Washington, Feb. 16.—Secretary Her- bert today received a cablegram from Captain McNair, commanding the Asiatic station, confirming the news- paper reports of the renewed disturb- ances in Corea. ASSIGNEE BET RAYED HIS TRUST Charles S. Maeaorthy Found Dying From Self -Inflicted Wounds. InCianapolls, Feb. 18.—Charles S. Mazworthy, assignee of the American Lounge Company, was removed from his trust today by Judge Brown for failing to appear and produce his re- ports. This afternoon Mazworthy was found in his room suffering from a fatal wound, self-inflicted with a pistol. -------- WAS ACQUITTED BY HIS CalIJRCH Es -Councilman casendet of Tacoma has one Con‘olation Tacoma, Feb. 15.—Ex-Councilman C.

Havana, Fob. 17.—It is reported that alaceo has succeeded in crossing the military line drawn across the island to prevent his escape from the province of Pinar Del Rio, passed between Neptuno and Waterloo on the south coast and entered the province of Havana. HAS NOT ONE DEFENDER Secretary Mortol Friendiess in the Lower House. HE WAS AGAIN CRITICIZED the Senate t:pmmittee on Elections Re - posts Fasorably on a lie:publican From Delaware. Washington, Feb. 17. --The agricultu- ral appropriation bill occupied the at- tention of the hotree today. A great deal of criticism of Secretary Morton was indulged in on both sides of the po- litical aisle. At last Mr. Mearson, of North Carolina, arose anu asked if these was not some member, demo- cratic, populist or republican, who would raise a voice in his defense. His qu.stion was greeted with a chorus of \noes\ from all sides of the house. The omission in the bill of a provi- sion for a chief clerk of the bureau ci animal industry at a salary of $2000, which was made upon the secretary's recommendation, led to the insinuation that the secretary wanted to legislate out of office P. F. Lysle, a free silver democrat from Missouri, the present in- cumbent, who was appointed on the recommendation of the Missouri sena- ore, and it was intimated that Secretary Morton's action was an attempt to re- taliate upon Senator Vest for the lat- ter's attack on him in the senate about two weeks ago. An amendment approptiating $42,- 360 for a new edition of the \horse book\ was adopted. Before the bill was taken up the sen- ate amendments to the urgent deficien- cy Lill were non -concurred in, and a bill was passed for the examination and classification of lands in, the railroad grants in California. - The bill is practically an extension of the act of the last cOngr , .ss for the segregation of mineral lands in the railroad grants in Idaho and Montana to the state of California. Mr. Dalzell, of •Pennsylvania, report- ed a resolution of inquiry catling on the secretary of the treasury for an exhaus- tive report relative to the sale of bonds under the resumption act between the two periods between 1879 and March 1, 1893, and between the latter date and January 1, 1896. Mr. Washington, of Tennessee, offer- ed an amendment calling on the secre- tary for detailed information as to the manner in which bonds had been sold between 1873 and 18SS. Mr. Wash- ington said the country should know whether the methods pursued by this administration when the treasury was in dire distress were different from those pursued by other administrations. Mr. Dalzell said he would have no ob- jection to the purpose of Mr. Washing- ton's amendment, but he thought it was not germane to the resolution before the house. Mr. Washington's resolution was de- feated and the resolution was adopted. The house went into committee of the whole, and resumed consideration of the agricultural bill under the five-min- ute rule. Amendments were adopted as fol- lows: On motion of Mr. Doolittle, of Wash- ington, directing the secretary of ag- riculture to distribute fibre flax seed in the state of Washington. On motion of Mr. Long, of Kansas, appropriating $15,000 for continuing the Investigation of modes of irrigation.

POWEIn HAVEN'T ANSWERED RUSSIA England Not Too Anxious to Grant Oc- cupation of Armenia. London, Feb. 17.—The under secretary of the foreign office, George N. Curzon, replying in the house of commons today to questions, said the powers had not Informed Russia that the occupation of Armenia would not be objected to.

Ltiis:a,,o Parties; Talk of Starting for thy Erox,u North of Siberia. • Chicago, Feb. 17.—Recent reports con- cerning the return of Dr, lettingen front the north pole have induced a Chicago syndicate to consider the advisability of dispatching a party at once to the Iena river for the purpose of ascer- taining the foundation for the accounts received, as well as to assist if possible the returning explorers in their probable march toward either Yakutsk or Ir- kutsk. The man selected to lead the party Is Evelyn B. Baldwin, meteorologist of Lieutenant Perry's North Greenland expedition in 1893-94. Much information concerning the re- gion to be traversed, as well as special facilities for expediting Baldwin on his journey to Siberia, has been afford- ed by Monsieur A. S. Savine and Comte De Toulse Lautre, now in Chicago, who is connected with a Siberian railway. In an interview, Baldwin said: \Barring such information concerning Nansen's whereabouts as would make a proposed trip expedient at this time, I shall go direct from San Francisco to Viadivistock, on the Pacific coast, more than 8000 miles from St. Peters- burg. From Vladivistock to Irkutsk, the first 450 miles, will be by railway, and the remaining distance by post. Twenty-two days will be occupied in making the transit. The time to be consumed between Chicago and Ir- kutsk will be about 60 days.\ MONTANA OFFICIALS ON A VISIT Looliing Over the Work or is Proposer: co!. tol at tilyninto.

AN INFERENCE OF A R:OT Murderers of 1 , carl lir}an Are confined at the Place Named for the Assetablage. Cincinnati, Feb. 17.—Walling and Jackson, the accused murderers of Pearl Bryan, will start from the jail at 8:30 tomorrow morning for a hearing in the police court on the charge of be- ing fugitives from justice. In view of the fact the following advertisement which appeared in a morning pap,r without signature is regarded with sus- picion to say the least: \Wanted—Men able bodied, 1000 .it Court :mil Sycamore streets at 8:30 o'clock Tuesday morning. Come ready for work.\ The entrance to the tail is at the cor- ner of Court and Sycamore streets. The natural inference is that it is an in- citemeet to riot, inserted in the paper by some unknown fomenter of mischief. If 1000 men report there tomorrow ready tor work that means trouble. Whatever - was the personal feelings of the Police towards the prisoaers, they can be de- pended on to keep their oath to uphold the law and the same may 'be said of the local military. The probabilities are against trouble. Dr. H. Crane, the chemist, who discovered cocaine in the stomach of Pearl Bryan, has just reported offic- ially that his analysis shows the pres- ence of two-thirds of a grain of that drug. The revelations of George H. Jackson of the facts of that midnight drive to the secele of the tragedy have had an effect upon the prisoners more distress- ing than anything else that has trans- pired. A black bead, a few blonde hairs and some hair pins have been found in the newly discovered rockaway. The circumetances with the established fact of the rockaway being out on the night are corroborative of Jackson's state- ment. It Is barely probable that habeas corpus proceedings may be employed to delay the extradition to Kentucky. In the meantime Governor Bradley has set his foot down against lynching and the good citizens of Newport resent the imputation that they are not able to give the prisoners a fair trial. MORE CLUES. Detectives today learned that Pearl Bryan was kept at the Herman hotel in Newport on the night before the murder. The officers have a complete chain of evidence against Jackson and Walling from the time Pearl Bryan came here from Green( aetle, Ind., Mon- day, the 27th, to Friday night, Janu- ary 31st, when she was murdered in a secluded spot between Fort Thomas and Newport. Governor Bushnell will hear the requisition case tomorrow, after which there is no doubt of the transfer of the two suspects to Sheriff Plummer of Campbell county, Ken- tucky, who will hold them at Newport jail. They will have a speedy trial. MURDERED THEM IN. A CRAZY FIT Robert Laughlin Confesses and Makes 111,4 Feet:gee. Augusta, Ky., Feb. 17.—Robert Laughlin, who Saturday morning re- ported Isis house burned by murderers, who attacked him with knives, and whose wife and niece were burned in the building, last night confessed that he was the muraerer.
