Hi,
Here are a couple more news articles.

Oregonian, (Portland,OR) August, 29, 1909
SEARCH FOR BODY KEEPS UP
CALLAGHAN OFFERS REWARD FOR CORPSE OF BROTHER
Tacoma, Wash-August, 28 (special) Relatives and friends of T.Y. Callaghan, lost on Mt. Rainier, August 14, with Mr. Stevens of Trenton, N.J. are still continuing the search.
Mrs. Clara Bewich-Colby and Mrs. M Frink of Portland,Ore arrived in Tacoma this afternoon and left on the train for Mt. Rainier, to aid in the search on behalf of Owen Callaghan. Mr. Callaghan has offered a reward of $2000. for the rescue of his brother, living, or $1000. for the recovery of the body.
Owen Callaghan, who was in Tacoma a few days after an extended search on the mountain, said he feels satisfied his brother and Mr. Stevens had met their death on the mountain and had probably perished by falling into a cave on the crater or into a cravasse. He was quoted as saying
it would be wrong to ask men to take the risk of searching the mountain.
