Slier Turns Over That Sum to the City Officials of Fair- banks Today, MONEYS WERE DERIVED FROM LICENSE FEES Other Towns Share in the Gen- eral a Cent Owing by the Government to Any of Them, DRIVEN INSANE BY RAINS Pioneer Palouse Farmer, Despondent Over Fear of Damage to Crop Takes His Own Life. PALOUSE. Wash.. Sept. A. Nichols, a farmer living on Fourmile creek, six miles west of this city, com- mitted suicide this morning about 9 o'clock by shooting himself through the head with an old-fashioned needle- gun. The only cause that can be as- signed for the deed is despondency. Nichols had been In poor health for some time and had been brooding over imaginary troubles. Because of the rains of the past few days he had ex- pressed fear of a second wet fall like that of 1803. when much wheat was ruined, and yesterday morning tad ttelephoned to a neighbor ottering to sell his crop very cheap. Nichols was one of the pioneers ni the Palonse- country. He settled on the farm whece.he'ended his life, in Clerk of tho Court Ed Stier today handed over to the town of Fairbanks the sum of the share of the ity In license moneys recently col- ected by the clerk. Other towns also benefited to a arge extent, the sum of having been turned Into the town treasury of Chena, to the town of Valdez, and Dagle shares In the general prosperity o the tune of Every penny due the townships of the Third division has now been paid, says Mr. Stier, and tb' ledger bal- ances on all their accounts. Many outstanding warrants are long since due, and the city will be enabled to clear much of Its Indebtedness by reason of the turnover made by Mr. Stier today. Outside of telegraphic message sent the News in connec- tion with the Fleming holdup, no word has been received 11 Fairbanks, In any way bearing on the case. Neither the marshal s office nor any other office Is in receipt of any Infor- mation since that receheil on Thurs- day in the telegram from Trader J. C. Riley at Tolovana, and the only other message received that from Jack Hillard. deputy collector of customs, sent to the News Mr. Hil- lard worked strenuously on the case during the short time his boat was at Baker creek, and during the winter will be a regular correspondent of the News over the wires, on aflalrs con- nected with Alaska, which ma> tome up on the outside, cspeclalb on af- fairs connected with the official bu- reau of the government with which hc Is connected. The circumstantial evidence against E. D. Tansy and R. N. Swift appears to be strong. Both men are well known to many residents of Fairbanks interested in mining, having been lay men and owners on Chicken creek In the Fortymile district for a long time before coming to the Tanana. Chicken creek is a tributary of the south fork of the Fortymile. The suspects are now in the custody of Deputy Marshal George Vautler, of Fort Gibbon, and will be brought up to Fairbanks on the first boat coming this way, unless their Innocence should be clearly established before that time. James Kelley tho yrlnclual in the famous Douio creek crises was in town today aud returns on ti.e evening train to his mauy inlercsts on Dome and other Mr. Kcllcy says that this winter will see more dumps taken out than any previous season In the history of the Tanana. It was at first thought that the taking out of the dumps In the winter time was not an economical way of mining in the Tanana the handling of the gravel twice being a great ex- pense, but the shortage of water In the early spring months, leaving, a very short season during which the water supply can be relied upon, has made the wisdom of the old methods apparent even to the most earnest theorists in the advisability of sum- mer work only. Big dumps will be taken out and advantage taken of the water supply as it comes. Kelley will have a capacity of 160- horsepower working on his proper- ties this winter and every ounce of power will be utilized to bring to the surface as much of the pay gravel as it can handle. There will be one plant on 3 above, Fairbanks creek, two on 3 above on Dome and one on G below on Dome. Other operators will be equally busy. Kelley believes thaat but for the liti- gation in which much property on Dome is involved, that creek would have shown up among the very rich- est of Alaska's producers for the sea- son just passed. Gave Up All He Had to His Creditors and Played the Game Squarely and Bravely to the End, to N.wl.1 DAWSOX. Sept A. Williams, former manager and president of the Dawson Electric Light Power com- pany, accompanied by hla father-in-law Mr. Demos, and Mrs. Williams and the children, left on the Ida May for Fairbanks. Mr. Williams was at one time count- ed one of the richest men In the Klondike. Backed by capitalists, he attempted to make the CoaJ creek coal mine a paying property, and It broke him. The electric light plant was recently sold on a mortgage to Dr. Andrew S. Grant and N. A. Fuller, and with his personal effects, con- sisting of only a.roll of papers and a grip full of underclothes he goes to Tanana to start life over again In "God's country." The electric-light "accounts are all squared and the 'creditors all got their money. Mr. Williams went as far as he could. He simply had bad luck. A gentleman's Tanana, George Butler, prop. Nature never taught any man a He. UHL LEAVES. E. J. Uhl, foreman of the N. C. ma chine shops, was a passenger out on the Koyukuk today for Seattle. This Is Mr. Uhl's first visit home in twelve years and he feels that he can stand the vacation. He has held his present position with the company for the pas two years, and will return to take up his duties again in the early spring coming in over the ice.

CARSON CITY, Nev., Sejt.. etter has been sent to tho London Lancashire Fire Insurance company by Insurance Commissioner' Davis, in response to one received from the manager of the company requesting nformation as to the conduct of Its business In the state of Nevada, In which Mr. Davis states: You ask mo to relate the reQuire- ments of the law of the state of Ne- vada with which you will bo pleased to comply.
